Funeral Service
Dealing With Your Grief.

The Bible says in Ecclesiastical 3:1-2
“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;”Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3:1-2‬

This means everyone us knows when we are born but none us knows the date and time of our death.

There many misconceptions about the dead in various cultures. Some people believed a dead person can hurt them. And
Many people are wondering wether the dead can still protect the living, wether their death love ones can still love his family and he fight his enemies?

In other words, can our beloved Son, father, husband, uncles, our friend or brothers, Felix Fon Tebug love his family again, can he protect his family ? Can he engage in business and careers activities ?
To answer these questions let us consult the creator of man who have the accurate answers to this questions in Ecclesiastical 9 :5-6
The Bible says the deaths are conscious of nothing at all.
“For the living know that they will die; But the dead know nothing, And they have no more reward, For the memory of them is forgotten.
Also their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished (Ecclesiastes‬ ‭9:5-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

That means He can’t participate in anything done under the sun
He has forgotten his business, carries, friends-and families.
Therefore, whatever you plan to do for your families, and for your friends and for your God, you should do it while you’re still living.
Don’t propane enjoyment. More importantly don’t delay your service to God.

It is most unfortunate for a person to work hard and by the time they beginning to enjoy the fruits of their
labor,suddenly death took them.
Therefore, It is a tragedy not to fulfill one’s destiny before death comes.
Moreover Life without Jesus is vanity.
“because “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away, But the word of the LORD endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.”1 Peter‬ ‭1:24-25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Another question people are asking is:
Is it appropriate for Christians to grieve and show some emotional outburst like crying. The answer is YES.

The Bible record shows that Jesus wept at hearing that His friends Lazarus died. Jesus openly wept at the death of Lazarus his friend even though he has the power to resurrect him. John 11:33-35

“For the hurt of the daughter of my people I am hurt. I am mourning; Astonishment has taken hold of me. Is there no balm in Gilead, Is there no physician there? Why then is there no recovery For the health of the daughter of my people?”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭8:21-22‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Yes it proper for a Christian to cry when their love ones dies. But grieving should be moderate.

Another question people always ask is, if a person dies can he live again?
Can our friends and brother FELIX FON LIVE AGAIN.?

The answer to this question is very important to all Christians living or death.
If a People who serving God die can they live again?

This question is very important because death is social leveler
Meaning that death is killing both Christian and pagan.
Death is killing both the righteous and the wicked.
Death is killing both the rich and the poor.
Death is a social leveler. Because all humans are dying regardless of their status in life.
I Thessalonians 4:13,14
Paul wrote:
“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.”
‭‭I Thessalonians‬ ‭4:13-14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The assurance we have as a Christian is the that since Jesus Christ died and rose on the third day, anyone who died in Christ will also be resurrected:

If the spirit of God resurrected Jesus from grave, the same spirit of God will resurrect our love one who slept in Dead. Roman 8:11

“Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth— those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.”
‭‭John‬ ‭5:28-29‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

God will remember those who died serving God and He will reward them with everlasting life or life without end in Paradise in Heaven.
This is our hope for Mr.Felix Fon Tebug.
We should be encouraged to serve God While we are still living. because a life without God is vanity.

Our Consolation is that Jesus conquered the death at his resurrection and the death is the last enemy will be destroyed:
Let open our Bible to the 1 Corinthians 15:20-26

“But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.

But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.
The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.”
‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭15:20-21, 23-26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

After the destruction of dead and the last enemy of human race God declared:
In the book of Revelation 21:4 God promised you and I

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.””
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:4‬ ‭

Let us Rise to our feet and pray:
