Celebrating the life of Bryant Deford Brooks, Jr.
Thank you for signing Bryant Deford Brooks, Jr.'s Guestbook
I wish to express my sincerest sympathy to you, Candice and the Brooks family and friends because of losing Bryant recently in death. When
our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God, Jehovah (Psalm 83:18), understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his Word. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25, Acts 24:15, Job 14:14-15) Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: “is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago.” Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live……And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it.”
Acts 17:31-34 tells us: Because he (Jehovah) has set a day on which he (Jehovah) purposes to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness by a man (Jesus) whom he (Jehovah) has appointed, and he (Jehovah) has provided a guarantee to all men by resurrecting him (Jesus) from the dead." Now when they heard of a resurrection of the dead, some began to scoff, while others said: "We will hear you again about this." So Paul left them, but some men joined him and became believers. Among them were Dionysius, who was a judge of the court of the Areopagus, and a woman named Damaris, and others besides them.""
Isn't it wonderful to know that death is not the end of things, but Jehovah has provided the resurrection for us?

For Bryant's family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. This is always a difficult time. While many are thinking of you, our Creator is also thinking of you. He is well aware of the pain you're experiencing. In 1 Corinthians 15:26 he calls death an "enemy" that will be brought to nothing. Soon he will do away with everything that causes us pain and will restore the lives of those whom we love (Acts 24:15). As you endure, please know that many are thinking of you.
