Will There Be Two Bodily Resurrections Separated By A Thousand Years?

Advocates of the doctrine of premillennialism cite this passage (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) as evidence for their theory of two literal bodily resurrections of the dead where the dead in Christ rise first, followed by a literal thousand years, in which the wicked will then be raised bodily from the dead.

Does The Resurrection of Jesus Save Us And Not Water Baptism?

1 Peter 3:18-21 states: "For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison, who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. There is also an antitype which now saves us-baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him."

What Does Baptism For The Dead Mean?

In the great resurrection chapter (1 Corinthians 15), Paul states on the subject something that is very perplexing and confusing to a lot of people who study the Scriptures in 1 Corinthians 15:29: "Otherwise, what will they do who are baptized for the dead, if the dead do not rise at all? Why then are they baptized for the dead?"

What Does The Bible Say About Cremation?

Cremate means: “to reduce (a dead body) to ashes by fire, especially as a funeral rite.” The Bible does not bind any particular rule or principle as to what to do with a dead body (Matthew 16:19). Is it to be buried six feet deep? Is it to be burned and then the ashes placed in an urn? There is nothing within New Testament authority that indicates what to do (John 12:48; Colossians 3:17).

Is The Rapture A True Doctrine?

What is the rapture? It is part of the larger false doctrine concerning the end-times known as premillennialism, which means “before the millennium (1000 years).” Although there are different “waves” of this doctrine, we will try to focus on what these “waves” have in common, namely:
