(The last resurrection is separated from the first resurrection by
a gap of 1000 years)
The Last Resurrection
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. (Rev.20: 5)
( They all are resurrected for the “shame and everlasting contempt ”
( Dan.12: 2 ) “unto the resurrection of damnation” . ( Jn.5: 28 )
The sea gave up the dead which were in it, and the death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them. And they were judged every man according to their works. And the death and the hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death .
(Rev.20: 12- 14)
Who will have the second death?
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power. (Rev.20: 6)
The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death . (Rev.21: 8)
