The Holy Spirit repeats the beautitude pronounced on those who sleep in Jesus.



13 And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, “Write, ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!’” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “so that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow with them.” Revelation 14:13

The Holy Spirit comforts us when we feel at a loss.  For the Christian, those who sleep have gone off to a far country and one day in Christ we will meet again.  For the believer, death has lost its sting; it is not the end but the beginning. Having said that, we are only human and we cannot see very far but the Holy Spirit can and he comforts us and keeps us in this life and prepares us for the ultimate future in God’s presence.
