2 Corinthians 5:8
It is with a heavy heart I write that I received an email from Sunil Yatham, son of Jeevaratnam Yatham, to inform me he passed away in his sleep June 26, 2018.
Readers may remember Pastor Yatham in my updates for India outreach , with Rural Global Gospel Mission. Pastor Yatham’s widow Esther, and family ask for prayer.
My heart grieves, yet I know he is with the Lord. His heart was for missions, and sharing the gospel. He was always asking for Bibles and tracts to share with the lost souls of India. There is comfort for those who mourn in God’s word.
Philippians 1:23 For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better.
2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
Revelation 21 3-5 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
Pastor Yatham will be missed..
This is a great reminder that life is short, and it is my hope your future is secure. If you have not ever considered what happens after death, please know it is something that needs to be on top of your bucket list..
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
The Bible tells us how to have everlasting life, although we die.. we are alive!
Romans 10:9-10 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 man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
