Hello to all my Born Again Brothers and Sisters in Christ I do not have any funerals right now but I wanted to post this anyway here is an updated funeral speech for any future funeral I will have. When I knew they weren’t doing well the Lord wanted to make sure they were right with God before they died and I can tell you on the authority of the Word of God grandpa is with the Lord Jesus because they believed that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose again 3 day later.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?””
John 11:25-26 NKJV
if you don’t know know Jesus as your Savior and Lord call upon Him today for Today is The Day of Salvation! You Must
A Admit you’re a sinner
B Believe Jesus is Lord
C Call upon His name
Romans 3:23-“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
“As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;”
Romans 3:10 NKJV
You may be asking how do I call upon Him to be saved it is written. “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Romans 10:9-10 NKJV
Romans 10:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
This is the Gospel. “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.”
I Corinthians 15:3-5 NKJV
Some final words of comfort.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13 NKJV
“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!”
Psalms 27:13-14 NKJV
“We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.”
II Corinthians 5:8 NKJV
One last thing to remember.
God is sovereign and numbers are days.
God won’t keep us here longer than necessary
In closing my question to each and every one of you here today is have you been Born Again as John 3:3 says 3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born [a]again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
You may say I was baptized and confirmed in the church but those things will not save you or make you Born Again of the Spirit of God or born from above and it’s not about religion but a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and any ism religion you name it is not true Biblical Christianity. Religion says do God say done and it is faith+nothing and Only Jesus can save you.
I can wake up every morning and not fear the wrath of God because I have peace with God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ do you?
Any anger you have because of their death give it to God surrender to God and give it to Him He knew the year, month, day, minute, and second they would die and God is Sovereign. to summarize the Gospel is this that Jesus came was born of a virgin died on the cross for our sins rose again 3 days later and is coming back again.
