  3. The GOD of comfort will comfort you all at this time.

    We can all look forward to the time spoken of in Rev. 21:4 And GOD shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things would have passed away.

    Come LORD JESUS come! Rev 22:20.
