    Hebrews 9:27-28 KJV

    (28) So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

    1 Corinthians 15:20-24 KJV
    (20) But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
    (21) For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
    (22) For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
    (23) But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
    (24) Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

    1 Corinthians 15:35-37 KJV
    (35) But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
    (36) Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
    (37) And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

    2,. You are correct in that it does not state that all (of the rest of the dead) end up in the lake of fire. It actually says:

    Revelation 20:14-15 KJV
    (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
    (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    coupled with

    Revelation 21:6-8 KJV
    (6) And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
    (7) He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
    (8) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    Summarizing:

    1. The resurrection of the rest of the dead is promised (even of those who are not righteous) to which Paul confirms his belief in Acts.

    2. Although there are those in Christ who are already raised (this is called the first resurrection) those who were dead but were had not already raised will be alive for that judgment

    3. On the other side of that judgment, there are two possible results:
    a) an ending, to be destroyed in fire, also called the second death. The opposite of life.
    b) a beginning, to enter into life and the holy city, to drink of the waters of life that flow freely for all that thirst. Eternal life, the opposite of death.

    Salvation will still be going on at the time of the tribulation, the great (as the Greek has it); however, if I am not mistaken, their lives will have to be forfeited and martyred (soul of the saints under the throne - Rev. 6). The book of Revelation is talking about then, not now. The tribulation, the great is a specific tribulation, such, that there will never be another one like it ever again. Jesus said so. Therefore, when I read the book of Revelation, I think of that time. The BOC will not be part of the tribulation, the great.

    Yes, I do know that Christians have always been under tribulation since the beginning, at different times more tribulation than at other times. However, it is not the tribulation, the great, Jesus spoke about.
    No man can come to God except through Christ. (Jn. 14:20)
    No man can come to Christ unless he comes through the Cross. (Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:1318)
    No man can come to the Cross without a denial of self. (Lk. 9:2324)

    The Bible is written to and for Believers, not to unbelievers. Yes, I know, it talks about unbelievers (Ahab, Jezebel, etc.), however, the Bible was not written for unbelievers.

    No unbeliever believes that the Bible is true.

    For Believers all in the Bible is good at the end.
    For unbelievers all in the Bible is bad at the end.

    I do not believe the Bible speaks of annihilation.
    I believe the physical body does die and returns to dust from whence it came, however, we do not die (and that include every single person in the whole world, be he/she Believer or unbeliever), for we can see from Luke 16 that Abraham, Lazarus, and the one asking for a drop of water on his tongue were alive.

    Jesus is alive right now at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
    No one has ever been able to prove that Jesus did not resurrect, and I mean, ever, and it has not been for lack of trying.

    I prefer to believe the Bible than the conjecture of unbelieving men.

    (52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    He speaks similarly to the Thessalonians
    [1Th 4:14 KJV] For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
    [1Th 4:15 KJV] For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
    [1Th 4:16 KJV] For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
    [1Th 4:17 KJV] Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


    Does the phrase "the dead in Christ" exclude anyone in the church back then? Or today? Seems like it might. What about "if we believe that Jesus died and rose again" in vs 14 (above)?

    Or does "the last trump" talk about a different time than the one before the millennium? That's a common pre-trib rapture position, but it gives us a third resurrection, and one that occurs before the "first" one in Rev 20.

    Your 1 Cor 15 passage (and preceding) seem to talk against the idea of multiple resurrections for the saved: [1Co 15:23 ESV] But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.

    Does God know which are saved? Has He already done a judgment of some sort in order to raise them from the dead at this point rather than the later resurrection?

    As per John 11:26, those who believe in Christ shall never die, meaning that this is a promise to be fulfilled in the resurrection. It isn't an immunity to the death from this life, but the promise of immortality in the future. These are raised from the dead and made immortal.

    As for unbelievers? Wicked? Unjust? They are raised from the dead and stand before God. There are only two outcomes of that judgment: passing into life, or destroyed unto death. I cannot tell you how any specific person will be judged, but I do see how Jesus says he will separate sheep from goats, how he does not reject the broken and contrite heart, how God does not reject sincere repentance.

    Where does judgment enter for the believer? We are given indication by means of parable. They who have been faithful with little are given responsibility over greater. Does Christ give the person who buried their talent rule over ten cities?

    Is there a time (or a reason) when you would say that salvation would not be "still going on?"

    I believe the physical body does die and returns to dust from whence it came, however, we do not die (and that include every single person in the whole world, be he/she Believer or unbeliever), for we can see from Luke 16 that Abraham, Lazarus, and the one asking for a drop of water on his tongue were alive.
    Genesis 3:3-4 KJV
    (3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
    (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

    John 8:24 KJV
    (24) I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    There are two different messages there: "you shall die" and "you shall not die." One of those is truthful and one is a lie. Be careful of which side you support.

    Even the parable of Lazarus says that he died. It does not say he was alive" neither he, nor the rich man nor Abraham are alive: they are figures in a colorful story. And have you ever considered why everyone in that story is specifically named except the rich man? Why does he have five brothers? Why are we told so many other details about him?

    I think that "the dead in Christ" is inclusive and self-defined. That would be all the dead (in Christ) when He returns.

    Or does "the last trump" talk about a different time than the one before the millennium? That's a common pre-trib rapture position, but it gives us a third resurrection, and one that occurs before the "first" one in Rev 20.

    Agreed.

    Does God know which are saved? Has He already done a judgment of some sort in order to raise them from the dead at this point rather than the later resurrection?
    I think so.

    Malachi 3:16-17 KJV
    (16) Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
    (17) And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

    I believe that the answer to your question is no. I believe that I have eternal life, but I do not know what it means to say so. Did my eternal life begin when I became a believer? Born again. The Spirit of God dwells in me. Unless I fail the test. I don't know that I have that right.

    [/COLOR]Agreed.



    I think so.

    (16) Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

    I think your Malachi reference helps with the "in Christ" part of "dead in Christ". These seem to be obvious servants of God.

    We have eternal life in Jesus. and we put on that eternal life in the resurrection when Christ returns. Until then we are flesh and blood (and still subject to death, for how can we die if we were already immortal) but we have the promise of eternal life in Christ.

    1 Corinthians 15:52-54 KJV
    (52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    (53) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
    (54) So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    Just pointing out that (at least according to John) Moses was in Christ as well.

    Hebrews 11:24-26 KJV
    (24) By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
    (25) Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
    (26) Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

    1 Corinthians 15:52-54 KJV
    (52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    (53) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
    (54) So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
    See 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17.
