Title: 2 Ressurections
Post by: Craig on July 23, 2007, 08:34:37 PM
Dear Ray, I came across your site today and was reading part A about hell. In that message you say there are two resurrections. Can you back that up with scripture? Nowhere in the bible can I find any evidence of two resurrections. I can find evidence of a second death but not a second resurrection. Why would anyone need to be resurrected twice? We are judged once and we are are resurrected once. Are you sure the two resurrection theory is not another christian hoax?
Two deaths are obviously a  physical death and a spiritual death but our resurrection is one spiritual resurrection in one spiritual body. Our old physical bodies are not recycled and resurrected from the grave. We either have a spiritual death or a spiritual life after our physical death and physical life. We can have two deaths but not two resurrections since we are already physically alive on this earth.

 Dear Angelica:

        There are not two resurrection for the same person, but rather two classes of people who are resurrected, and the Elect are said to be in the "first" or "former" resurrection.  "But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the FIRST [or former] resurrection" (Rev. 20:5). Now this is some question as to whether this verse is really Scripture or whether it was added to the manuscript. We still have conformation of two classes of people resurrected from other Scriptures:

        "...that there shall be a resurrection of the [1] JUST, and [2] UNJUST" (Acts. 24:15).

        "And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, [1] some to everlasting [eonian] life, and [2] some to shame and everlasting [eonian] contempt" (Dan. 12:2).

        "And shall come forth; they that have done good unto [1] the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto [2] the resurrection of damnation" (John 5:29).

        Hope this helps your understanding.

        God be with you,
