The Bible says that God “will wipe out every tear from their eyes.”   “death will be no more, neither will
mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”—Revelation 21:4
The Promise

The Bible writer Paul offered hope of relief from that “last enemy,” death. He wrote: “Death is to be brought to nothing.” “The last enemy to be abolished is death.” (1 Corinthians 15:26, The New English Bible) Why could Paul be so sure of that? Because he had been taught by one who had been raised from the dead, Jesus Christ. (Acts 9:3-19) That is also why Paul could write: “Since death is through a man [Adam], resurrection of the dead is also through a man [Jesus Christ]. For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.”—1 Corinthians 15:21, 22.

The vast majority of those who have died will be resurrected to life on earth. (Psalm 37:29; Matthew 6:10)  The Creator has promised that he will soon bring an end to the present world society that is under Satan’s control. (Proverbs 2:21, 22  Daniel 2:44) A righteous new human society—“a new earth”—will then be a reality. (2 Peter 3:13)
