Two Resurrections

Ancient Israel had three major harvests.  The first was the barley harvest, followed later by the wheat harvest, and the last was the grape harvest.  The barley harvest was always prefigured with a wave sheaf offering of barley to determine if the harvest was ready to begin.  Jesus Christ as the first to be resurrected was and is the wave sheaf offering.  Some may ask, “what about Enoch and Elijah?”  They were not resurrected and their final destination is questionable.

The barley harvest symbolizes the first resurrection which will only consist of a certain group of people, both dead and alive, who will function as the priests, leaders, and administrators of the millennial government of Jesus Christ.  This first resurrection will not include everyone calling themselves a Christian or member of a church group.  It will only be those people living the life style of Jesus Christ, who totally believe that God is in complete control of all things and events, and have received an anointing of the Holy Spirit as the people of the Pentecost event that was witnessed in the book of Acts.  This group could be referred to as the overcomers or the elect.

Revelation 3:12 KJV  Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God……..

Greene’s literal and Young’s literal versions translate as “overcomes” while several other versions use the word “conquers”.

The second resurrection occurs at the end of the Millennium and these people will appear before the White Throne Judgment.  Revelation 20:4 describes the first resurrection group who are the overcomers and verse 20:5 states that the rest of the dead, nominal Christians and non-Christians, were not resurrected until the end of the 1000 year Millennium.  The last sentence of verse 5 (This is the first resurrection) is referring to the overcomers in verse 4 and not to the “rest of the dead” which are the nominal Christians and non-Christians.

Revelation 20:4-5 KJV  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.  (5)  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

The second resurrection which takes place, within a parallel time frame, at the Great White Throne Judgment could actually be considered to be two separate groups or two resurrections which will include the wheat harvest (nominal Christians) and the grape harvest (non-Christians).

Revelation 20:11-12 KJV  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.  (12)  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

The nominal believers will find their names written in the book of life and will be justified with a certain amount of stripes (spiritually symbolic).  One with the knowledge of the expectations of Jesus with many stripes (symbolic) and the unaware with only a few stripes (again symbolic).

Luke 12:47-48 KJV  And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.  (48)  But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

John 5:28-29 NET  “Do not be amazed at this, because a time is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice  (29)  and will come out — the ones who have done what is good to the resurrection resulting in life, and the ones who have done what is evil to the resurrection resulting in condemnation.

The procedure of the first resurrection is merely an educated guess.  Those dead will appear first, followed by the living overcomers.  Scripture states they will appear with the Lord in the air.  To be in the air means they will not be in the ground.  If they are standing on dirt, they are in the air.  The overcomers, both past and present, are envisioned to be taken briefly to the dimension of heaven in a similar manner as the new Israelite priests were taken into the tent for eight days during the tabernacle ceremony.  Afterwards, they will be placed into various leadership positions in the earth.

The basically American group of dispensational, pre-tribulational, rapturists who mistakenly believe the people calling themselves Jews of the modern nation of Israel and around the world are the descendants of the ten tribes of Israel and Judah will be highly disappointed and possibly confused.  The majority will not be raptured (Latin transliteration of the Greek harpazo which defines as “caught up”); there will be no world ruler known as the “antichrist”; there will be no seven year tribulation period; and the Gog-Magog invasion of Israel has already occurred during the 1930’s and 40’s and continues today.

Universal Reconciliation

Universal reconciliation is the concept that every person, entity, and object created by God will be reconciled to God.  Everyone will be resurrected to receive correction and training in the ways and laws of God.  It may take a few thousand years but everyone will acknowledge and accept the laws of God.  Every knee will willingly bow and worship God as the Lord of creation.  That doesn’t mean every knee will bow immediately before they are sent to hell.

Isaiah 45:23 NET  I solemnly make this oath — what I say is true and reliable: ‘Surely every knee will bow to me, every tongue will solemnly affirm;

Romans 14:11 NET  For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will give praise to God.”

Philippians 2:9-11 NET  As a result God exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name,  (10)  so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow — in heaven and on earth and under the earth — (11)  and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

      actually there are 3 resurrections.

      —The resurrection to LIFE:
      The first resurrection which occurs at the return of Christ, this is the resurrection of God’s First fruits.

      —The resurrection to judgement:
      The 2nd resurrection occurs at the end of the 1000 year reign which is foreshadowed by the Feast of Tabernacles. This time of “judging” is foreshadowed by the 7th Feast of each year which is apply call the “Last Great Day”. All that have not had their one opportunity for eternal life are raised to physical flesh and blood and must repent and obey as did all of God’s First fruits.
      This time is The Great White Throne Judgment. Possibly as many as 100 billion will live and be judged over a 100 year period. No children will be born during this time.

      —the resurrection to condemnation:
      the 3rd resurrection is to flesh and blood after which all those that refused to obey during their one opportunity are cast into the lake of fire. They cease to exist for all eternity. There will be gnashing of teeth for sure.

      Three is God’s number showing finality and completeness.

        “be judged over a 100 year period. No children will be born during this time.”

        I see you are still writing your own scripture.

        “Three is God’s number showing finality and completeness.”

        That must explain why there are only TWO appearances of Christ on the earth.

        Leviticus 16:7 KJV  And he shall take the TWO goats, and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

        Leviticus 23:20 KJV  And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits for a wave offering before the LORD, with the TWO lambs: they shall be holy to the LORD for the priest.

        Leviticus 14:4 KJV  Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed TWO birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:

        Exodus 34:1 KJV  And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee TWO tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.

          Isaiah 65

          17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

          18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

          19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

          20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

          21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

          22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

          During the 1000 year reign there will be children born but during the great white throne judgment which follows, only those that have not had their one chance for eternal life will live another life time during which they can repent and obey or not repent and die.

          those in the 2nd resurrection will be judged and as far as “the child shall die at 100′ — at the 2nd resurrection all the children that died early in life and even those aborted will be given life and their chance for life eternal or did you think God will just forget them?

          Three times the children of Israel are taken into captivity and 2 times Christ frees them from slavery to sin.

          1, The captivity in Egypt
          2, The Assyrian captive of the House of Israel and the Babylonian captivity of the House of Judah.
          3, The coming 3rd captivity of the whole house of Israel by the Assyrians again, the Assyrians are the Rod of God’s Wrath.

          Ezekiel chapters 1 – 7 speak of this 3rd captivity as do much of the other prophets.

          Are you not aware of the coming 2nd Exodus??

          Isaiah 11: 11

          11 “And it shall come to pass ‘IN THAT DAY”, that the Lord shall set his hand again the Second 2nd Time, to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.”

          Jeremiah 16: 14, 15

          14 ”Therefore, behold the days come saith the Lord, that it shall no more be said , The Lord liveth that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;”

          15 ”But, the Lord liveth that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands whither — He had driven them;— and I will bring them –again — into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”

          2 is God’s signature and that what occurred is of HIM.

          40 is the number for trial and testing.

          7 is God’s number of spiritual perfection

          There are many that understand God’s numbers, I did not come up with it, I just proved it for myself.

          What I read indicates you are coming closer and closer to the truth.
