Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. Today we are going to answer the question, “What is the resurrection?” Many Jews (before and during Jesus’ time) believed in a resurrection that would take place on the last day. This belief was actually a major point of division between the two main sects known as the Pharisees and the Sadducees. In John 11, Jesus taught that He is the resurrection and the life. He spoke of another resurrection for those who believe in Him. In John 8:51 He said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death (KJV).” The opportunity to partake in this 1st resurrection started at the time of Jesus’ resurrection and extends until the end point spoke of in Revelation 20:4-6. After this comes the Millennial Reign, and then the White Throne Judgement which is the 2nd resurrection. This 2nd resurrection is the one that the Jews believed in, and that Martha referred to in John 11:24. Please join me in this video as we discuss this topic in more detail.
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (AKJV).” John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they may know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent (AKJV).” Real Life is a King James Bible believing ministry that endeavors to teach the true spiritual meaning of the terms “life” and “eternal life.” Understanding these spiritual terms should have a profound impact on our pursuit of the knowledge of God. Through personal study of the Bible and development of our personal relationship with God, believers have the opportunity to pursue eternal life.
