  4. Dear Annette, I pray that Jesus will comfort you and family during this season of grief. However, I encourage you to remember Jesus’ promise to Bill. Jesus said: Luke 12: 8 — And I [ Jesus ] say to you { Bill Jackson ], Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God. 9 But he that shall deny me before men, shall be denied before the angels of God (Douay-Rheims Translation). You will remember that Bill allowed me to pray over him in public places — like the Tim Horton’s on 17 Avenue SW. Many people would shy away from that, but not your brave Bill. Bill fought bravely for Canada and he stood his ground when publically confessing his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus was not ashamed of Bill, when the ministering angels ushered Bill into the glory of Heaven and into the Throne Room of God. Bill is enjoying the company of His Saviour and his many loved ones who went before him [ The Apostle Paul said: For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart ( go to Heaven ), and to be with Christ; which is far better ( Philippians 1:23) ] . Bill has just gone ahead of us — like off to Hawaii for a holiday — we are going to catch up — someday soon ! Hallelujah ! God bless you and all your family. Blaine Craig
