Matthew 22:23-28 The same day came to Him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him . . .“Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be of the seven, for they all had her?” . . .

V. 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, “Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, ‘I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.’”

V.33 . . . when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.



Last night I was thinking of my brother, Jim, who died recently. During his last days on earth he went through some soul searching and discomfort, though he was a Christian through and through. We shared often over the phone yet I never quite knew exactly how to reassure his troubled spirit. I remember telling him many a time to read the psalms as prayers to God. “The psalms will comfort you and be assured that the Holy Spirit is interceding for you,” I had told him.

Jim knew he would be going home soon and wanted to prepare the way. Ten days later he departed, his spirit at peace and family beside him.

As I reminisced last night, I found myself talking to him and saying I hoped he had prayed the psalms. Almost immediately I realized the folly of my statement. Jim had no more need of comfort or reassurance. He was home!

Yes! Jim is among the immortal, with the GOD OF ABRAHAM, and the GOD OF ISAAC and THE GOD OF JACOB. He has set down mortality and put on immortality. He lives with the God of the living! Amen!
