I searched the CAF archives but could not find any threads for this particular passage in the bible… It is Revelations 20:4-5
Then I saw thrones; those who sat on them were entrusted with judgment. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast or its image nor had accepted its mark* on their foreheads or hands. They came to life and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.c
The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were over. This is the first resurrection.
If I am to understand this passage correctly (or incorrectly lol)… The first resurrection dealt with the end of the world and all of the dead being resurrected to be judged… but how can after the thousand years of peace there be another resurrection afterwards? Why wouldn’t all of the dead be resurrected at once at the 2nd coming of Christ?
If anyone can clarify this I would greatly appreciate it.
