Resurrection of Dead–Eternal Life

By Wesley Pierce

2Sam 14:14

14) Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him.

Mal 3:16-18

16) Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored his name.

17) “They will be mine,” says the LORD Almighty, “in the day when I make up my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as in compassion a man spares his son who serves him.

18) And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.

(for anyone looking for a reason to “respect and honor the Lord”, the above verses qualify)

Act 1:1-3

1) In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach

2) until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen.

3) After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.

(Luke, writing about the 12 apostles who would be Christ’s eyewitnesses to the nations, after seeing his resurrected body many times in person)

John 5:24

24) “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.

John 6:39-40

39) And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.

40) For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

John 11:25-27

25) Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;

26) and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

27) “Yes, Lord,” she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”

John 14:1-3

1) “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.

2) In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.

3) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

Act 2:22-24

22) “Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.

23) This man was handed over to you by God’s set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.

24) But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.

Rom 8:10-11

10) But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.

11) And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.

1Cor 15:42-44

42) So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable;

43) it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

44) it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

1Cor 15:51-53

51) Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed

52) in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

53) For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.

Php 3:20-21

20) But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,

21) who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

1Ths 4:13-18

13) Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.

14) We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

15) According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.

16) For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

17) After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

18) Therefore encourage each other with these words.

Heb 9:27-28

27) Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,

28) so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

Dan 12:2

2) Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.

Rev 5:9-10

9) And they sang a new song: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.

10) You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.”
