The First Resurrection

11/15/04 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
(Regarding the state of the dead[1])

"Thus says The Lord: All people sleep in death, both those who have done good and those who have done evil. In no way are they among the living, nor are they aware. They know nothing at all, for all their thoughts have perished with them.[2] All remain at rest, until the day I call them to awake; some to the first, the resurrection of life, and many more to the second, the resurrection of judgment.[3] Blessed and holy are those who take part in the first resurrection. For over them the second death[4] has no power, as it is written.[5]"

~

"Yet The Messiah did indeed pay the penalty for your sins, even unto death... He is risen, the firstborn from the dead;[6] by which you are also delivered from death, if you so choose to receive of His life, if you so choose to embrace Him as He truly is!


For He alone will stretch out His hand in that day
And lift His beloved from the grave in which all must sleep,
Save those who remain awake at His coming, as it is written[7]...

And behold, the time is indeed coming, when all
Who are in the grave will hear His voice and come out...

Those who have done good, to the resurrection of life...

And those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment[8]...

I AM THE LORD."

6/2/09 From YahuShua HaMashiach, He Who Is Called Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear


"Therefore, again I say to you, all those who repent in My name,
With sincere remorse in their hearts, are saved;
For I am The One who makes it possible for them to do so...

And though some have fallen asleep in death,
And others are slain, even by their own hand,
I ask you, shall death have the last word?...

BY NO MEANS! For I shall raise them up at the Last Day!
For I have granted them the victory, even as I am The Victory,
Being the First Fruits from death...

Even as those given Me shall likewise be first
When the shout is made, says The Lord."

7/28/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Thus says The Lord: Who shall praise Me from the pit? What song is heard from the grave? Shall rotting flesh stand up and praise The God of Israel? Shall those turned to dust give Me glory?...

Thus I tell you a mystery, behold, I speak to you a wonder: There is a people who sleep and a flesh which has no life in it, there are many who have returned to the earth and can not be found, yet The Lord God knows their names and their dwelling places; not one has passed from My sight, not one has passed away or been given up to the void! For I am The God of The Living, The One alone worthy of all praise!
I am not the god of the dead, but of the living! The dead have no ruler, for there is no life in them; even all their thoughts have perished. No voice is heard from the grave; only complete and utter silence dwells there... Darkness without time. For from the dust I created them, and to the dust do they return; with My own breath were they made alive, and without My breath they fall asleep.


In the image of The Son were My beloved created,
And in His likeness shall they be restored!...
 
For the day and hour is close at hand, yea it is very near,
When the dead in Messiah will rise and the sleepers shall awake,
When the rotting corpses are revived and
The dust gathers together once again!...

Behold, from the ends of the earth, to the deepest depths,
Shall My people arise and give Me glory!
For the day and hour is chosen; in My right hand is it written...

Therefore, let all the children of Israel step forward!
Let everyone joined to Messiah
Rush forward and claim their inheritance!...

For I have but to call out your name!
Says The Holy One of Israel.

The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear


Thus all those who believe in The Son
And obey His voice shall rise and live...

Yet those who hate The Son will not see Life,
For the wrath of God remains upon them[9]...

Says The Lord."

12/5/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Behold! Look! For The Lord your God shall do a new thing, a new and terrible thing, an astonishment, a great wonder, the likes of which this world has never seen! The faces of the multitudes shall pale, the hearts of many shall fail them for fear! Many shall collapse, gathering blackness, on account of that which is coming to pass before their eyes! - The mighty and awesome power of The Lord your God put on open display! For who can stand against His coming?! Who will not fall down at the sound of His voice?!

Thus says The Lord: It is time. My hand shall reach down; lo, it shall plunge into the earth. It shall pass through every tomb and every mausoleum, through every grave. Behold, My hand shall pass through the dust and sift the sands of the desert.
Even unto the depths of the sea, My hand shall grab hold, and the whole earth shall give up its dead - Every child of God, every servant of The Most High, every sheep beloved of The Shepherd. Then shall I turn to the multitudes and pass through; behold, I shall pass through and steal them away! - Babes from every womb, children from every corner, and My elect from every nation!


The world shall be left utterly desolate and in tears;
Heavy sorrows shall overtake every land!...

Behold, an outcry shall rise up
Such as has never been heard!
Much weeping and lamentation, anger and many
Raised fists, a great gnashing of teeth!...

Yes, among every tribe, people and nation,
A great noise shall be heard!
For three full days it shall not subside,
And for three full nights it shall not lessen...

Thus shall their first reward be given,
For they have shown themselves fully worthy;
Then shall they know, I AM THE LORD!"

5/25/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For a Brother in Christ in India, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear


"For The Glory of God breaks through the clouds,
A mighty trumpet blast sounds!
From the heights of the mountains to the deepest depths,
Life bursts forth in the bodies of the dead!...

Behold, a loud voice is heard from Heaven:

 “Hear the voice of The Living God,
Hear the call of your Redeemer!...

EARTH, GIVE UP YOUR DEAD!...

BRIDE OF THE BLESSED, COME UP HERE!”[10]"

The Second Resurrection

11/15/04 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
(Regarding the state of the dead[11])

"Thus says The Lord: All people sleep in death, both those who have done good and those who have done evil. In no way are they among the living, nor are they aware. They know nothing at all, for all their thoughts have perished with them.[12] All remain at rest, until the day I call them to awake; some to the first, the resurrection of life, and many more to the second, the resurrection of judgment.[13] Blessed and holy are those who take part in the first resurrection. For over them the second death[14] has no power, as it is written.[15]"

For He alone will stretch out His hand in that day
And lift His beloved from the grave in which all must sleep,
Save those who remain awake at His coming, as it is written[17]...

And behold, the time is indeed coming, when all
Who are in the grave will hear His voice and come out...

Those who have done good, to the resurrection of life...

And those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment[18]...

I AM THE LORD."

8/28/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For a Brother in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears To Hear (Regarding the judgment of those who are raised at the end of the thousand years)

Thus says The Lord: In the Consummation, all judged according to their works will surely die, for none are saved by works. Yet if in that day one calls upon the name of Salvation, in true repentance, with sincere remorse in their hearts, they will not be judged. Behold, they will pass from judgment into life, for The Promise is never-ending, and all who come to Me will I in no wise turn away. Yet understand this: I look upon the heart, and know the truth of the words which the mouth speaks, for the heart can not lie. Therefore many will cry out in that day, great multitudes will call on My name for mercy, yet those appointed to death will receive their due reward, and those appointed to life will enter therein... This is judgment and mercy according to truth.
Therefore when the multitudes are judged, they will indeed be judged according to their works. For the books will be opened, and their works shall be made known; even every idle word will be examined and accountability assigned. And they will be repaid according to their deeds, by which they have condemned themselves... Yet those who call upon the name of The Holy One of Israel in truth, humbling themselves before Him, taking full responsibility for their works, confessing their sin, will receive mercy; for The Holy One and His works now stand in their place, interceding on their behalf. And the condemned shall go into silence and rest from their evil deeds, for it has wearied them, and they shall be no more; for even in the destruction of the wicked is My mercy found. Thus as I have spoken it, so shall it be done.


Therefore, My son, trust in My glory,
And seek no more to understand My Word
According to the letter, nor grab hold of it
As though it can be fully grasped by any man...

Rather seek to know Me as I am...

For from this knowledge alone does all
Understanding flow into the hearts of My beloved,
And they shall have peace...

Says The Lord.
