    Juan says:
    (Psalm 46:1) God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress. (Revelation 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
