Grandson Passed Away
My three and half year old grandson passed away recently. I always hear that when one dies, they have loved ones who have gone before them greet them, but he never knew anyone who had passed. I worry about this because who could have met him.

No one will be raised from the grave until the ressurection.If everyone either went to heaven or was destroyed then there would be no need for Jeus to come back to ressurect anyone . However I am sorry to hear of the pasing of your grandson. my son just turned 4yrs old so it is hard to understand losing someone at that age.He wil lrest peacefully until the day of ressurection, but to the dead it'll seem like an instant.

Abba, I ask you to bring comfort to Diana's heart for the loss of her grandson. She misses him so much and needs your strong arms of love wrapped around her. Give her peace that you were there even the moment he passed from this world to Eternity, that he is not alone and never will be alone, and that he is abiding in your eternal joy forever never to suffer again. Father, Abba, fill her with quiet confidence in your ability to keep her grandson until they are reunited once again in the appointed time. And Father bring comfort to all who are grieving for this child in this hour. In Jesus Name-Amen & Amen!

Dianna, I feel for you.
But, I worry about this because who could have met him??
How about our lord, Jesus Christ!
Who better to show him, his family then his father?
I know its hard to believe the things written in the bible.
But, if God didnt love us Christ would have never come.
Many will say how can you be, so sure!
Mat_19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
It belongs to him.
God keep you.

I am so, so sorry for this sad news. My heart breaks for you and your family.
The Lord is sovereign, and He knows the needs of your family, as well as that of your grandson upon his death.
Trust Him. He will perfect His will in all of this.

\\We do not "go to be with the Lord". \\
The Bible disagrees with you.
2 Corinthians 5:8
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Glory to Jesus Christ!

This is one of the most grievous things I consider. I am so sorry.
It is not likely there is much happening in "sleep", as Paul calls the death state. He had resurrection in mind when he put it that way.
Your grandchild is unaware of anything, he is asleep 1Th 4:13.
We do not "go to be with the Lord". We all must be raised up out of death. The next thing he will know is being in the Lord's presence at the resurrection.
In Christ, all shall be made alive. He will abolish death, and all will live once again, when God becomes all in all.
1C 15:26 The last enemy [that] shall be destroyed [is] death. Where death is gone, only life remains.

diana, your little grandson had many to meet him. It is heart wrenching to loose a precious little child. I would be comfortable in saying Jesus met him. I would bet he is happy about now. the way I got thru my daughters death is I knew she was going to be with Jesus and she isn't suffering anymore. Please just know God is in control and He has reasons for everything He does. as a result of my daughter passing away, my husband was saved. I think she would have wanted it the way.

If loved ones who go before do meet other family members when they arrive then it is just as likely that God can make someone who never met those relatives on earth, know them when they get to heaven. Nothing is impossible with God and that precious child is important to God. He is smiling with the Lord now and very happy.

Hi, Dianna (c: God bless you (c: Jesus has said, "For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?" (in Matthew 5:46) So, I take this as a warning not to just get into loving only certain favorite family people and friends, but get into loving any and all people. And in God's love we become family with all other Jesus people, so we can be very specially sharing with all, not only certain "loved ones". So, I get concerned when I hear and read about people who want mainly or only to see just one or a few people in Heaven. Because this can mean they have not gotten into deeply loving different people of Jesus' family. And what reward do we have if we have been picky and choosy in our loving, I would say Jesus means.
