When is the FIRST resurrection?

20 08 2015

First of all
I have no reason to lie
There is a curse for those who twist scripture.
I will only use scripture.
No opinions, No writings of others just scripture.
Just bear with me….I just try to be a Berean.

Remember: God is no author of confusion

1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Let’s examine what the bible says about when the FIRST resurrection is.

Revelation 20:5
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had NOT  WORSHIPPED THE BEAST, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.

Considering this bible verse there has to be TWO RESURRECTIONS.

The FIRST RESURRECTION is = After the Tribulation (Revelation 20)
The SECOND RESURRECTION is =  After the Millennium/1000 years of peace (Revelation 20)

We all know that the RAPTURE and the FIRST RESURRECTION have to be the same event. This event happens AT HIS COMING. Because Paul said:

1 Thessalonians 4:13
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15For 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. 16For 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: 17Then 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.

1 Corinthians 15
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21For since by man came death, by man came also THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. 22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s AT HIS COMING.

I repeat God is NO author of confusion.
This means that we will certainly will NOT BE caught up/Raptured BEFORE THE DEAD IN CHRIST are raised up/resurrected. AND THEN we (Christians) wo still be alive will be caught up TOGETHER.
This event will happen AT HIS COMING.

That’s why Paul said: I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren.
Paul want it to be clear when this event will take place.
That’s why he repeated his words in 2 Thessalonians 2:

2 Thessalonians 2
1Now we beseech you, brethren, by THE COMING OF OUR LORD Jesus Christ, and by OUR GATHERING together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall NOT COME, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
In case you missed it.

Paul spoke about an EVENT.
Which event are we talking about? The event Paul is speaking about is THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS

1 Thessalonians 4
15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto THE COMING OF THE LORD

2 Thessalonians 2
1Now we beseech you, brethren, by THE COMING OF OUR LORD Jesus Christ, and by OUR GATHERING together unto him

1 Corinthians 15
21For since by man came death, by man came also THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. 22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s AT HIS COMING.

Matthew 24
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be THE SIGN OF THY COMING, and of the end of the world?

1 Thessalonians and 2 Thessalonians 2 1 Corinthians 15 and Matthew 24 are all speaking about THE SAME EVENT. The Coming of Jesus.

Do you agree???

Jesus also often said that the resurrection will happen on THE LAST DAY.

John 6:40
And this is the will of him that sent me, that everyone which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at THE LAST DAY.

John 6:54
Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at THE LAST DAY.

John 12:48
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in THE LAST DAY. (resurrection)

Even the first Christians KNEW that the resurrection will happen on THE LAST DAY.
Martha the sister of Lazarus KNEW it. Because Jesus teach it.

John 11:23
Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at THE LAST DAY

We can see a pattern through scripture.

1= It is THE COMING OF THE LORD
2= The DEAD will rise first (FIRST RESURRECTION)
3=
We who are ALIVE WILL be gathered together with those raised up.
4=We will be caught up to meet Jesus

Can I Proof that THE FIRST RESURRECTION/RAPTURE is AFTER THE TRIBULATION.
I Think I Can:

1= 1 Thessalonians and 2 Thessalonians 2 1 Corinthians 15 and Matthew 24 are all speaking about THE SAME EVENT. THE COMING OF THE LORD

2= If you studied those scriptures (1 Thessalonians and 2 Thessalonians 2 1 Corinthians 15) you will see that FIRST THERE IS A RESSURECTION.

3= Then we who are still alive WILL BE CAUGHT UP AND GATTERED TOGETHER with the resurrected saints to meet Jesus.

The Master question is still is it BEFORE or AFTER THE TRIBULATION?

The ANSWER lies in Revelation 20

Revelation 20:5
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had NOT  WORSHIPPED THE BEAST, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.

The first resurrection is AFTER the Tribulation.
It is in complete harmony with what Jesus said to his disciples when they asked his when HIS COMING and OUR GATHERING WITH HIM.

Matthew 24
29 Immediately AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man COMING in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall GATHER TOGETHER his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Pauls said the same

2 Thessalonians 2
1Now we beseech you, brethren, by THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, and by OUR GATHERING TOGETHER unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

Paul gave 2 signs BEFORE THIS EVENT can HAPPEN

1= The Falling away first
2=
The man of sin be revealed

This is in complete harmony with Revelation 20:5 and with Matthew 24.
Both indicates AFTER THE TRIBULATION  

I repeat: God is no author of confusion

That’s why God gave us a warning.

Galatians 1:8
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Revelation 22:19
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book

2 Thessalonians 2
3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition
