"Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?" - 1 Corinthians 15 V12
"And I saw the dead small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books." - Revelation 20 V12
The Bible teaches us about the resurrection of the dead and in fact Jesus preached about this and He said that all people who rely on their works will be judged according to their works. The Bible also teaches that no flesh shall be justified by means of their works but only those who wear the righteousness of Christ shall be justified. The righteousness of Christ is given to all those who believe in the Lord Jesus and trust Him for their salvation. Now some people do not believe in the resurrection and they may have a different worldview. But this does not change the truth. Christ rose from the dead the third day according to the scriptures and He is the first fruit of the resurrection of the dead, and by rising from the dead He promised every one of His followers will rise one day and will be with Him forever. The wicked will also rise one day but for eternal damnation. Are you on the right side?
Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
