We saw last time that there are two main resurrections, Hebrews 11:35. The first resurrection provides true Christians who then marry Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:7, with their positions sharing in the Government of God here on the earth during the Millennium, Revelation 20: 4.
Those positions will depend upon how diligent and faithful they have been in their calling, Luke 19:17.
At the end of the 1000 years the Second Resurrection will take place, Revelation 20:11-13, Ezekiel 37:5-6. This resurrection will include all those who have never even heard of Jesus Christ, as well as the majority of Christians who never understood the true gospel and were deceived by Satan into rejecting God’s Commandments and Sabbath, and the pattern and example of Jesus Christ, Revelation 12:9.
During this Great White Throne Judgement period, some who have deserved punishment will receive it, before being given their chance to repent.
They will be resurrected into a world carefully prepared for them during the 1000 years ( See our Article, ‘Return to Eden’). It is thought that they will be raised physically perfect, without any disabilities, at the age of 30, the age of maturity, when Jesus began His ministry. They will taught God’s way and live to be 100, Isaiah 65:20. Little children who died young will be raised by their parents, and also reach 100, when those who have repented and received Salvation through Jesus Christ will be changed into Spirit Beings.
There may be some who refuse to repent of their sinful ways. They will die only to be resurrected again along with the few who understood and rejected their opportunity for salvation in this life, to face the lake of fire when the earth is consumed with fire in preparation for the New Heavens and New Earth, Luke 16:24, 2 Peter 3:10-13.
God is giving you a chance now to be in that better resurrection, with all its rewards, but it takes courage, and we have a vitally important God given task to fulfil, which is not even mentioned by the churches, even the churches of God, though it is plain in God’s word!
