The Two Resurrections
We are not going into an exhaustive analysis of the resurrection, but a brief summary which may help as a supplement. In Daniel 12:2 we have the first mention of two resurrections, "some to everlasting life and some to everlasting contempt."
"And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt."
Now, as we turn to the New Testament, in John 5:28,29 we again have two resurrections mentioned.
"Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."
The First Resurrection consists of ALL SAVED and is composed of 5 separate resurrections. The second resurrection, which is the resurrection of damnation, consists of ALL LOST resurrected to the Great White Throne Judgment.
