Whether death comes as a sudden shock or something we have been prepared for, nothing can ease the pain like the hope-filled words of the Bible. God is longing to comfort you in your grief and loss, come to Him and allow His inspired Word to speak life and healing over your broken heart. imply put, the Bible says that the dead are in the grave, awaiting the resurrection. ( John 5:28, 29 ) They are not suffering or in any kind of pain, for “the dead know nothing at all.” ( Ecclesiastes 9:5 ) In his teachings, Jesus likened death to a deep sleep.
