How Many Resurrections Will There Be?
by Don Stewart
“Scripture speaks of two distinct resurrections – that of the just and the unjust. All Bible believers agree that there will be a resurrection of both the believing and unbelieving dead.”
“Although some Christians believe there will be only one general resurrection at the end of time, Scripture seems to speak of more than one resurrection. The first resurrection will be that of believers while the second resurrection will be that of unbelievers. The resurrections in Scripture do not all happen at once. The first resurrection refers to the resurrection of all believers, though separated in time. There has been over nineteen hundred and fifty years between the resurrection of Christ, and the rapture of the church – which is still future. After the church is raptured and resurrected, there will be the resurrection of the tribulation saints- those who have died for their testimony of Christ during the Great Tribulation. At that time the Old Testament saints will also be raised. After the thousand year reign of Christ on the earth, the Millennium, there will be one final resurrection. This will be the unrighteous dead from all time as well as the millennial saints – those who have believed in Christ during the Millennium. After the Great White Throne judgment, there will be no more resurrections.” ↓MORE↓
