1 Corinthians 15:23; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; John 11:24; Revelation 20:4-5

23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then kat his coming lthose who belong to Christ.

16 For nthe Lord himself will descend ofrom heaven pwith a cry of command, with the voice of qan archangel, and rwith the sound of the trumpet of God. And sthe dead in Christ will rise first.

24 hMartha said to him, I know that he will rise again in ithe resurrection on the last day.

Then I saw tthrones, and useated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw vthe souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those wwho had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. xThey came to life and yreigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection.
