Name: Crystal Halbrooks Hobbs
Message: The Bible describes dying as deliverance from all sin, all trouble, anxiety, disappointment, suffering, sorrow, and weariness. On the positive side it is perfect holiness, perfect purity, perfect happiness, perfect satisfaction, perfect honor, perfect dignity, perfect freedom to enjoy everything that God has prepared. And especially, perfect love given to God and to all who are in His presence and perfect love received from God and all who are in His presence, therefore perfect fellowship with God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the holy angels and all the saints. We long for the day that we will see her again.
