All Will Be Raised from the Dead To Be Judged
Construction Zone 12: God's Plan for the Future
Will our bodies ever come back to life once we have died?
Yes. One day, Jesus Christ will raise up everyone's bodies again, either for eternal life or eternal death. John 5:28b – All who are in the graves will hear His voice.
This Truth Makes
God is going to raise all the dead people back to life someday. Some of those raised to life will be punished with everlasting death in hell. Some will receive everlasting life in heaven.
But what about people who are still alive when Jesus comes back? Not all of God’s children’s bodies will be in their graves when Christ returns. Some will be alive! The Bible teaches that God will first raise those who are dead, and then those who are alive will go up into the air to be with Him forever.
1 Thessalonians 4:17 – Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
What happens when you meet the Lord depends upon how you have prepared your soul before the Lord comes back. Are you “righteous” because you trust in Christ? Or have you said “no” to Christ? Thos who turn from Him and die in their sins will be given back their bodies, but they will be sent to hell for everlasting punishment.
