The
Resurrection
"Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the
grave shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good,
unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the
resurrection of damnation"
[John 5:20,21]

The assurance of the resurrection of the dead is found in the resurrection
of Jesus from the grave [1 Corinthians 15:1-58]. Therefore, the man of God
stands without a doubt, knowing for a certainty that the resurrection shall
be.

However, many are in doubt or mistaken concerning the resurrection.
Some say the resurrection is past; some say part is past and part is future;
some say it shall be in various parts in the future; and, come say it is in a
singular resurrection to come in the future. But, what does the Bible say?
Again, I remind you it is the truth of God, and the final authority in
determining any question of faith, doctrine and practice [2 Timothy
3:16,17].

Jesus said "all that are in the grave shall hear" his voice. There would be
none within the grave which would not hear, and come forth. For all that
hear shall come forth, whether they be among the just or the unjust.
There is no distinction made as to those dead coming forth at different
times; all come forth together. There is not a separate resurrection for the
just, and another resurrection for the unjust. There is ONE resurrection of
all.

Hear the apostle Paul:
"... there shall be A RESURRECTION OF BOTH THE
RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED"
[Acts 24:15]. Not "resurrections" in the
plural, but "a resurrection" in the singular. ONE RESURRECTION!

This one resurrection of all that are in the grave shall take place at the
second coming of Christ.
"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;"
[1 Thessalonians 4:16]. The voice
which all the dead shall hear, shall sound at the return of Christ, in the
future.

Nowhere in the Bible is there evidence of two resurrections of those in
the grave. Nowhere in the Bible is there evidence of the resurrection of
which Jesus speaks here, or which the apostles comforted the church
concerning, having passed before our day. The resurrection of the dead
is yet to come.

Are you prepared for it? You can be! Obey your Lord out of a loving,
faithful heart [John 14:1; Acts 3:17; Romans 10:10; Acts 22:16; Revelation
2:10].
