Or perhaps I should say: What Are The Two Resurrections? For most people, that is, those deceived by the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, haven’t a clue about the Two Resurrections. Most of them are fooled into believing their mickey mouse Rapture nonsense, which I expose for the fraud that it is in my article entitled: “Unravelling The Satanic Rapture Deception parts 1 & 2.” (See link below)
So why are there Two Resurrections? simply put, so that all Mankind (but NOT Serpent Seed hu-mankind) can be saved and have Eternal Life in the Kingdom of God: (See link below entitled: “The Jews are The Tares”)
John 3:16-17 (MCV) For God so loved
the world The Creation, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life. 17 For God sent not His Son into the world The Creation to condemn the world The Creation but that the world The Creation through Him might shall be saved.
From Strong’s Concordance:
The World – G2889 – κόσμος – kosmos – kos’-mos – Probably from the base of G2865; the orderly arrangement, that is, decoration; by implication the world (in a wide or narrow sense, including its inhabitants, literally or figuratively [morally]): – adorning, world.
Now I can hear all those Evangelists (so-called) and Fundamentalist ‘Christians’, otherwise known as ‘Fundies’ for short, howling and screaming in disbelief. I can even see some of them jumping up and down and renting their clothes in their pain and anguish at hearing this ‘dreadful news’ – not a pretty sight, I might add!:
“Oh no! Oh no! What are we going to do now, now that we can’t send all those evil sinners to our fiery hell!!?? Doesn’t this messenger Charles character realise how much of an adrenaline kick we get out of telling all those ‘wicked wretches’ they’re going to burn in torment for eternity in our hell fire and brimstone? Who does he think he is, spoiling our party, spoiling our self-righteous parade, spoiling all our psychopathic fun, and rendering us useless and surplus to requirements? We’ll have nothing to do now we can’t threaten, abuse, bully, browbeat and blackmail the dissolute masses through the fear and intimidation of the wrath of our tyrannical Trinity and Monotheistic Ogre gods!” (See links below)
Well all I can say to you mongrel dogs is TOUGH! And now you can start working on your own repentance forthwith, ‘cos if you don’t, it’ll be you who feels the ‘fire and brimstone’, not the lost and the unsaved.
Moreover, as we can see from the above information, we have one of the foundational building blocks of the bad news message of Fundamentalist ‘Christianity’, that is, FEAR, the FEAR FACTOR, the fear of a permanently wrathful and tyrannical ogre god. They are literally attempting to ‘save’ people through severe pressure and fear tactics and/or blackmail. Do they ever stop and think about what they are saying and/or doing? No, not all. Do they ever read what The Holy Scriptures actually say? NO, not a chance!
Therefore, bearing all that in mind, and without further ado I will deal with The Second Resurrection, FIRST. Hey! hang on a minute, what do you mean – The Second Resurrection, there’s no such thing, I hear you say? Well clearly there is because The First Resurrection is definitely mentioned in the Holy Scriptures and if a First Resurrection is mentioned then, by default, there must be a Second Resurrection, otherwise why call it The First Resurrection!?
Revelation 20:4-5 (MCV) And I saw Thrones, and they (the saints) sat upon them, and judgement was given unto them: and I saw the
souls spirits 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.
So here we have explained to us The First Resurrection where those who are part of that First Resurrection reign in power, ON THIS EARTH, with Yashua Messiah for one thousand years – The Millennium.
Now take note of verse 5: BUT THE REST OF THE DEAD LIVED NOT AGAIN UNTIL THE THOUSAND YEARS WERE FINISHED! This is the First Resurrection! Right, once more, if we have a First Resurrection then it MUST follow that there is a Second Resurrection otherwise these people referred to as the “rest of the dead” will remain dead and will not live again!
Revelation 20:6 (MCV) 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.
We then have The First Resurrection confirmed in verse 6 along with The Second Death which I will go into later. Also, notice, that The Second Death has no power over those who are part of The First Resurrection and if there is a Second Death then, again, by default their MUST be a Second Resurrection.
So what other evidence do we have for this Second Resurrection? Right here:
Ezekiel 37:1-14 (MCV) The hand of The LORD was upon me, and carried me out in The Spirit of The LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, 2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. 3 And He said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. 4 Again He said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear The Word of The LORD. 5 Thus saith The Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: 6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am The LORD. 7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. 8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. 9 Then said He unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith The Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. 11 Then He said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole House of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. 12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. 13 And ye shall know that I am The LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, 14 And shall put my Spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I The LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith The LORD.
These incredible prophetic verses from Ezekiel confirm two things for us:
1) The Second Resurrection is a physical resurrection, unlike The First Resurrection which is a Spiritual Eternal Resurrection, and a far superior resurrection. Hence John says: “Blessed and Holy is he that hath part in The First Resurrection.”
Here is The First Resurrection:
1 Corinthians 15:40-44 (MCV) There are also
celestial heavenly bodies, and bodies terrestrial earthly: but the glory of the celestial heavenly is one, and the glory of the terrestrial earthly is another. 41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. 42 So also is The Resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption (capable of decay and death); it is raised in incorruption (incapable of decay and death – Eternal): 43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in POWER: 44 It is sown a natural (flesh) body; it is raised a Spiritual (eternal) body. There is a natural (flesh) body, and there is a Spiritual (eternal) body.
2) What Paul said in Romans:
Romans 11:26 (MCV) And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion The Deliverer, and shall turn away irreverence and disrespect towards God from Jacob.
Now mark this and mark it well, for Paul says ALL ISRAEL, not just some Israelites, but ALL OF THEM, that is, from Jacob/Israel, his Twelve Patriarch sons and ALL their descendants, onwards and up unto this day and into the future – millions, upon millions, upon millions of them, and 98% of them (I’m probably being generous here) UNREGENERATED SINNERS who died IN THEIR SINS and yet they will ALL BE SAVED! So WHEN and HOW will this miraculous event be achieved? Read on for the answer, but first you need to know who the Israelites are!
Here are the ‘Lost’ Tribes or The Twelve Tribes of Israel:
These are Jacob/Israel’s Twelve Sons who were or became The Twelve Patriarchs and progenitors of twelve clans/tribes that became 12 modern western nations.
Joseph, whom Jacob loved, represented by Joseph’s two sons Ephraim and Manasseh – the Birthright Inheritors,
Benjamin the youngest son,
Levi – The Priesthood,
Judah – The Royal Sceptre to Yashua Messiah, King David, British Royalty and Nobility,
Reuben – the eldest son who, like Esau, lost the Birthright Inheritance,
Joseph = Ephraim = Anglo-Saxon England (The Saacae or Saaka – Isaac’s sons = Saxons) and Her Anglo-Saxon Commonwealth – Australia, Canada, NZ and S Africa (Now stolen).
Joseph = Manasseh = Anglo-Saxon USA (The Saacae or Saaka – Isaac’s sons = Saxons)
Simeon = Scotland (The Scythians) and Scottish descendants everywhere.
Levi = Wales, (The Druids = descendants of The Levitical Priesthood with many butchered by the Romans in 46 AD), Cornwall and The Walloons of Belgium and Welsh descendants everywhere.
Judah = The Jutes, not the Jews = Northern Ireland (The Red Hand Flag of Zarah), Scotland and some dispersed in England with some also still dispersed in Western Europe including Germany (Assyria).
Benjamin = Norway, Iceland and Denmark.
Dan = (The Tuatha de Danaan) Southern Ireland and Irish descendants everywhere.
Reuben = Northern Gallic France = Paris, Brittany and Normandy and Gallic French descendants everywhere.
Zebulon pronounced Zeebulon – a haven for ships = Holland (the Zuider Zee) and Dutch descendants everywhere.
Gad = Flanders (modern Belgium) including The Walloons.
Issachar = Switzerland.
Naphtali = Finland.
Asher = Sweden and Swedish descendants everywhere.
13 tribes listed in all due to Joseph’s two sons Ephraim & Manasseh both inheriting.
“…there are but two tribes in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while The Ten Tribes are beyond (the river) Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated by numbers.”
— Flavius Josephus, first century historian.
If you think I am wrong, try and apply this verse to the Jews – God’s promises to Abraham:
Genesis 13:16 (MCV) And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
From the Declaration of Arbroath to Pope John XXII 1320 AD:
“Most Holy Father and Lord, we know and from the chronicles and books of the ancients we find that among other famous nations our own, the Scots, has been graced with widespread renown. They journeyed from Greater Scythia by way of the Tyrrhenian Sea (Mediterranean Sea) and the Pillars of Hercules, (Gibraltar) and dwelt for a long course of time in Spain among the most savage tribes, but nowhere could they be subdued by any race, however barbarous. Thence they came, twelve hundred years after the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea, to their home in the west where they still live today.”
So as we can see there will be millions upon millions of resurrected Israelites in the future Second Resurrection and ALL given brand new super physical bodies.
However, here’s a question for all you wretched ‘Fundies’ and ‘Evangelists’ out there. If The Father and Yashua Messiah are going to go to all this trouble of giving the Children of Israel super new healthy youthful physical bodies, only to then throw them straight into the Lake of Fire, where is the sense in that? Is the Godhead a Godhead of failure? Is the Godhead that wasteful? Are They into irresponsible behaviour and futile actions? Why not just leave them dead in their graves never to see the light of day again? I will therefore state this for the record: If this is what you think the Godhead are capable of doing, and willing to do, then the godhead you believe in are a pair of merciless vengeful tyrants, and not an ALL POWERFUL Godhead at all. In direct contrast the ALL POWERFUL Godhead I worship is Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, and administer JUSTICE at all times, not mindless injustice and/or psychopathic revenge!! Yes, They punish and will punish SEVERELY, make no mistake, but ALWAYS FOR GOOD REASON! As demonstrated here:
Luke 12:47-48 (MCV) And that (regenerated) servant (one who was, or is, called), 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
Here in these prophetic verses, full of foreboding for certain self-righteous people who think they are saved, we can see who will be more severely punished, AND TAKE NOTE, IT ISN’T THE LOST AND UNSAVED!! Make sure you register this TRUTH in your minds IF you’re one of those self-righteous ‘Evangelicals’ or ‘Fundies’ who goes round judging and condemning the lost and unsaved to hell fire and brimstone in the Lake of Fire – YOU have been warned in agape love.
Revelation 20:11-15 (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. 13 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. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Judged – G2919 – κρίνω – krinō – kree’-no – Properly to distinguish, that is, decide (mentally or judicially);
by implication to try, condemn, punish: – avenge, conclude, condemn, damn, decree, determine, esteem, judge, go to (sue at the) law, ordain, call in question, sentence to, think.
So here we can see that The Second Resurrection is NOT about summary mass execution but, rather, judging or evaluating what these people did in their first lives, here in this age, as lost souls. Now pay very close attention to what the Holy Scriptures are saying and refrain from using any close minded thought processes or those erroneous ideas indoctrinated into your minds by satanic ravening wolves from their ‘hell fire and brimstone’ lecterns and pulpits. So what are the Holy Scriptures saying? Well to answer that, here is the non-judgmental Truthful version of that same passage of Holy Scripture:
Revelation 20:11-15 (MCV) And I saw a Great White Throne, and Him (Yashua Messiah) that sat on it, from whose face (countenance or presence) the earth and the
heaven atmosphere fled away; and there was found no place for them (forever moving through the aether). 12 And I saw the Spiritually 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 Spiritually dead were judged evaluated, or matters were determined out of those things which were written in The Books, according to their works. 13 And The Sea gave up the Spiritually dead which were in it; and Death and Hell delivered up the Spiritually dead which were in them: and they were judged evaluated, or matters were determined, regarding every man and woman, according to their works.14 And Death and Hell were cast into The Lake of Fire. This is The Second Death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in The Book of Life was cast into The Lake of Fire.
Now make sure you understand this crucial point, for here we can see that the ‘DEAD’ are not dead at all, because they are standing before Yashua Messiah’s Great White Throne, so the word ‘dead’ is referring to another type of death, that is, SPIRITUAL DEATH! This means we have billions of Spiritually unregenerated dead people, standing before Yashua Messiah’s throne. I will also remind you that at this stage they have been resurrected into superb new physical bodies. Now just stop and think about that for a while and endeavour to picture this awesome scene.
OK, so let’s do it, let us picture the scene, there they all are, awaiting their evaluation and, notice, it’s all according to their works in this life, and we know that no one can be saved according to their works, so why is Yashua Messiah evaluating them according to their works when works cannot save them? In fact, why is Yashua Messiah evaluating them at all if He’s going to throw them all, unceremoniously, into the Lake of Fire anyway? Furthermore, we know that they are all sinners, because they are all Spiritually dead, so, again, why not just throw them all into The Lake of Fire, job done!? Why bother with a tribunal!? Are they not already condemned!? Yes they are and THAT is why they were DEAD IN THEIR GRAVES!! Through dying they have paid the penalty for their sinful lives in this life!
John 3:18-19 (MCV) He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of The Only Begotten Son of God.19 And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil. (Yashua Messiah is The Light)
Are YOU beginning to see The Light? I do hope so.
Furthermore, here’s a more pertinent point: If Yashua Messiah has taken the trouble to resurrect all these billions of people, given them brand new super physical bodies, just imagine the Spiritual Power and energy involved in doing that. Now imagine the planning and organisational skills involved in this awesome event, not to mention the generation allocations to be made for each era:
1 Corinthians 15:22-23 (MCV) For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man IN HIS OWN ORDER: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at His coming.
Order – G5001 – τάγμα – tagma – tag’-mah – From G5021; something orderly in arrangement (a troop), that is, (figuratively) a series or succession: – order.
So with these huge events and Truths in mind, is Yashua Messiah then going waste all His Spiritual Power and energy and that of His saints and angels, after having evaluated these people, by throwing them all into The Lake of Fire? Now stop and think (and I know this will be hard and painful for some) and ask yourself if this scenario is realistic and if it makes any sense? Of course it makes no sense, because The Second Resurrection is all about giving these people their FIRST CHANCE for salvation. First chance!!?? I hear you say. Yes their FIRST CHANCE! How do you work that out? I also hear you say. Quite easily as it happens:
The PARABLE of The PARABLES!
Matthew 13:10-16 (MCV) And the
disciples Learners came, and said unto Him, Why speakest thou unto them in Parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of The Kingdom of God, BUT TO THEM IT IS NOT GIVEN. 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13 THEREFORE I SPEAK TO THEM IN PARABLES: because they seeing, see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross (has grown fat, congealed and lazy), and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, AND SHOULD BE CONVERTED, AND I SHOULD HEAL THEM. 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
Now please read the above passage of Holy Scripture and endeavour to understand what’s going on here. Read it several times, if necessary, because this passage is crucial to gaining full understanding of the reason for Yashua Messiah’s mission to this earth. Now pay careful attention for He tells us some critical fundamental Truths. 1) First and foremost, He tells us plainly that His Gospel Message was only for a select few – His Learners (disciples). 2) He tells us that He uses parables in order to CONCEAL The Truth from the majority. 3) He also tells us that He does that in order to protect that same majority from the Power of His Word as they are not ready, not equipped, nor able to receive it. 4) He tells us that He has deliberately blinded them and made them deaf, so that they are incapable of seeing and hearing. 5) Yet at the same time it is their fault and not His, for their hearts have hardened towards their God, as prophesied by Isaiah. 6) So here we have this massive conundrum in that Yashua Messiah is deliberately withholding His Truth from them, whilst blessing only a select few, but at the same time blaming them for not being receptive. 7) Does this make Yashua Messiah grossly unjust? 8) Yes it does APPEAR TO, but only grossly unjust, IF we ignorantly think THIS LIFE is, or THIS AGE is, the only opportunity for salvation. 9) And that is the rub of this conundrum, which, in Truth, is not a conundrum at all, as THIS AGE is clearly NOT THE ONLY OPPORTUNITY for salvation.
Right! After having read the above for as many times as is necessary, you should now understand WHY all these billions of Spiritually dead people will be standing before Yashua Messiah’s Throne on The Last Great Day ready to receive the gift of another life and the opportunity of salvation. So make no mistake, for this Great Day will be the greatest day in mankind’s history, and it will be the very day when Yashua Messiah’s prophecy is fulfilled:
John 12:32 (MCV) And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will
draw drag all men unto me.
Now most of the wretches in the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion will tell you that this verse is referring to that period of time which commenced with Yashua Messiah’s death and Resurrection and His subsequent Ascension into heaven in the first century, but nothing could be further from The Truth, because Yashua Messiah has not drawn (dragged) ANYONE to Himself —- YET! In this age. Take note, The Father does ALL the drawing (dragging) to His Son Yashua Messiah in this age:
John 6:44 (MCV) No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw (drag) him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:65 (MCV) And He said, Therefore said I unto you, That no MAN can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
Draw – G1670 – ἑλκύω, ἕλκω – helkuō helkō – hel-koo’-o, hel’-ko – Probably akin to G138; to drag (literally or figuratively): – draw. Compare G1667.
Having got this far I KNOW there will be many scoffers and stiff necked rebels out there who will maintain that people DO have a chance for salvation, in this life, but reject it, and I would rebut that nonsense and tell them to read the above Holy Scriptures (Matthew 13:10-16) and keep reading them until The Truth has registered in their minds and onto their hearts or see my article: What is True Rejection of Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ)? for complimentary reading. (See link below.)
OK, that’s about it for this opening article and I know there are many other side issues attached to it, which I will cover in future articles, so stay with it.
