2 General resurrections in their own order.General resurrection or everyone man in their own order?
Sure.can you please explain more to me?
They will be under a government under Christ's rule:when Jesus comes those who are dead but in Chist will rise and those of us alive and in Christ will be caught up to meet Him in the air.
So what happens to the other people during that thousand years?
the ones that are alive bt not in Christ.
No, hehe, I got you the first time.No I mean the ones that do not get in the resurection...the ones left behind that are alive but never accepted Jesus.
Yes, they will know Christ. That's why after 1 thousand years, the devil will try to deceive them again:But they are not saved even though they will be under Jesus rule and will know Him?
That's fine. I'm sorry I can't explain it any better.Sorry I am getting confused.
An intelligent question Mary. But I rather not comment on the condemnation of others but... what I can say is this. Those who were not able to know Christ do have a chance, that's why in the end, they will be judged differently:so those who are not saved now still will have the chance later after Jesus comes? Unless they die first?
15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.2 General resurrections in their own order.
After each individual death condition (being saved or not saved): Christ the Firstfruits and afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
When was the first resurrection that brought the first fruits?
I believe when the veil got torn in two at the death of Christ at Calvary.
50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
Jesus said to her, "I am the one who brings people back to life, and I am life itself. Those who believe in me will live even if they die. And everyone who lives and believes inMe will never die.

2 Corinthians 5:8
8we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.
23But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better;
Who and when was the first believer resurrected to life?Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
After the first resurrection, after a thousand years, there is another one:
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
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
With all due respect . . .No, hehe, I got you the first time.
They will live under the rule of Christ and the saints. And these people who never accepted Christ w/ live a life w/out being tempted by the devil anymore.
