The Resurrections

The Bible truth about resurrection is the missing dimension and key to understanding how a God of love can be in favor of a death penalty.
From the August 2000 Trumpet Print Edition

The first resurrection will be at Christ’s return to Earth, when He will resurrect to eternal spirit life those who have received God’s Holy Spirit and who have overcome and endured in God’s ways and held fast to God’s truth.

The second resurrection will occur 1000 years after Christ’s return. Those resurrected will be given human physical bodies once again. For the first time, they will receive the opportunity to understand God’s precious truth and put it into practice in their lives so that they, too, can be added to the spirit-composed family of God.
