My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Doris. When Jesus Christ was here on Earth he performed all sorts of astounding miracles. He healed some of the people from whatever diseases and infirmities they had Matthew 9:35. Jesus Christ also brought back to life some of the people that had fallen asleep in death one of them was his friend Lazarus that had been dead for 4 days John 11: 11-44. These astounding miracles that Jesus performed is a foreshadow of what he will do right here very soon on a brand new Paradise Earth under his kingdom rule that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord's Prayer Matthew 6:10 no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21: 1-5.
