“THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST” - PART 2

“THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST”

“Subtitle: THE FIRST RESURRECTION”

PART 2

Praise the Lord People of God! We have been discussing the DEAD IN CHRIST; I did not want to leave this teaching short; I LOVE showing you something that may be helpful to the BODY OF CHRIST! I thank FATHER for revealing HIS WORD TO HIS PEOPLE!!! I hope that you now know that the dead in Christ are not dead bodies popping out of the CEMETERIES all over the world; but the DEAD IN CHRIST are those who are dead to the FLESH; they are DEAD to the FIRST ADAM NATURE; they are DEAD to the WORKS OF THE FLESH!!!!! Stop listening to these preachers that are saying that the dead bodies will come out the grave BRAND NEW; NOT!!! Those people who are TRUE WORSHIPPERS TO FATHER SHALL RISE FIRST!!!!! Behold, I show you a Mystery; turn with me to Philippians 3:11-14; but I will teach on verse 11:

‘If by any means I might attain unto the RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD.’

The apostle Paul was busy teaching the Church about this first Resurrection; this word resurrection is only mentioned once in the GREEK; this word is defined as EX-ANASTASIS; GREEK NUMBER 1815; this is what we call the OUT-RESURRECTION; this is the Resurrection outside of the GENERAL RESURRECTION; I will prove that this is what Paul was talking about to the CHURCH; this is the FIRST RESURRECTION; they are the ones who put CHRIST FIRST IN ALL THINGS; this is the resurrection that the apostle Paul was trying to ATTAIN; Paul wanted this resurrection very bad; that’s why he said in verse 12; NOT AS THOUGH I HAD ALREADY ATTAINED; Paul was not sure at this time if he had attained the first resurrection, but he was PURSUING THIS RESURRECTION WITH ALL HE HAD; that’s why in verse 14, Paul says that I PRESS TOWARD THE MARK [FOR THE PRIZE OF THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS]!!! The PRIZE IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION; THE PRIZE IS THE OUT-RESURRECTION; THE PRIZE IS THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE [FIRST]!!!!!!! The OUT-RESURRECTION IS ONLY INSIDE OF JESUS CHRIST; and everyone will not PARTICIPATE in the FIRST RESURRECTION; STILL NOT CONVINCED? Let us Journey to REVELATION 20:4-6; pay close attention to Verse 5 and Verse 6:

[5]. ‘But the REST OF THE DEAD lived not again until the thousand years were finished. THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.’

[6]. ‘Blessed and Holy is he that hath part in the FIRST RESURRECTION: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be PRIESTS of GOD and of CHRIST, and shall REIGN with him a thousand years.’

But the rest of the DEAD; to those people who were not DEAD TO THE FLESH, WILL NOT BE A PART OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION; for this MORTAL must PUT ON IMMORTALITY; but if we are MORE mortal, more fleshly, or more Carnal, we will not be a PART OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION!!! Many of the saints that were DEAD, AND their lives were HID in Christ, they will REIGN in the FIRST RESURRECTION!!! To those saints that KEPT THE WITNESS OF JESUS IN THEIR BODIES, SOULS, AND SPIRITS SHALL BE A PART OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION!!!!! To those saints who are FULL OF THE WORD OF GOD WILL BE A PART OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION!!!!! The people who did not live again until the thousand years were finished were the ones who caused CHRIST TO DIE inside of them; they did not retain CHRIST IN THEIR FOREHEADS; THEY CAUSED THE WORD OF GOD TO BECOME NULL AND VOID!!! But to those people who are part of the First Resurrection, they are BLESSED and HOLY; this word Blessed in the Greek means that you are Fortunate and WELL OFF; it is very fortunate to be a part of the FIRST RESURRECTION; we are WELL OFF to be a part of the FIRST RESURRECTION; not only will we be fortunate and well off, but we will be PRIESTS OF GOD; some of us will be kings and priests of GOD and of Christ; but to those saints who are part of the First Resurrection are HOLY!!! You have to be Holy to attain the FIRST RESURRECTION; this word Holy in the Greek means that we are sacred, pure, morally blameless, and Consecrated before our GOD AND CHRIST!!!!!!! These saints are Clean before their LORD AND THEIR KING; a Priest of God is Sacred and Consecrated unto the LORD JESUS CHRIST; there is a first, second, and third resurrection: I Corinthians 15 talks about these different resurrection; saints in the FIRST RESURRECTION act and look more like their DADDY; and their DADDY name is JESUS CHRIST!!! This is not the first time part of verse 6 was mentioned; take a look at ISAIAH 61:6:

‘But ye shall be NAMED the PRIESTS of the LORD; men shall Call you the MINISTERS of our GOD.’[part of this verse];

The reason the people of the First Resurrection are Named the Priests; their nature was priests; they carried their priesthood everywhere they travelled; they did not become priests on Sunday services, but their NATURE were Priests of the LORD CONTINUALLY; they are CHRIST’S MINISTERS; they are humble, and they will serve many people during the thousand years of TEACHING THE WORD OF GOD!!! The FIRST RESURRECTION SAINTS are CALLED and CHOSEN by the LORD JESUS CHRIST; they did not love their lives; they did not Compromise the Word of God; but they were that ROYAL PRIESTHOOD and HOLY NATION unto GOD continually; let us attain the FIRST RESURRECTION; before I close, guess what the number 1000 means: it means the GLORY OF GOD AND COMPLETENESS!!! The First Resurrection Saints will walk in the GLORY AND COMPLETENESS OF GOD CONSTANTLY AND CONTINUALLY; the GLORY CLOUD OF GOD WILL FOLLOW THEM EVERYWHERE THAT THEY GO; they will walk IN the POWER OF GOD through JESUS CHRIST; I LOVE you SAINTS OF GOD; GROW IN GRACE AND IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST. [ THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION]!!!
