What are the 7 resurrections Bible talks of? Learn the truth now.
Jesus has risen and that’s the best news we have ever gotten in our lives! The whole Bible is centered around the resurrection. Even Abraham has taken up his son to the mount to kill him, believing that God is potent enough to raise him from the dead! So, what are the 7 resurrections we find in the Holy Scriptures?
7 resurrections of the Bible:
Old Testament stories
You can read one of the stories in 2 Samuel 4. Elijah resurrected the son of a woman who has given him shelter. There was another story of the “accidentally” raised man by the late Elijah! Read the full story in 4 Kings 13. However, these resurrections were terminal; people died again in due time.
Saints during the Christ’s crucifixion
In Matthew 27 we read that after Jesus’ death the sainted came out of their graves alive in Jerusalem. God’s Son has paid the price for their sins, and these righteous people arose to testify of His great dead.
Jesus is the first among many brothers and sisters
Read 1 Thessalonians 4:14, where Apostle Paul tells us that He rose again and we will, too. He is the first fruit to God among those, who are to rise from the dead.
God has given us a great promise of Jesus, who would come back to restore the Earth and rule with the saints. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 says that the dead in Christ will arise, and the rest of the people raptured to Him.
During the last years of the Earth and devil ruling it God would send two men to testify about Him. The Antichrist will kill them, but the Lord will raise them up three days later.
Old Testament saints, who rule with Christ
When Jesus comes, he will bring an army of saints with Him, including the patriarchs and everyone who served Him in the Old Testament. Daniel 12:1-2
These people will receive Christ during the tribulation, and the only way for them to be saved goes through beheading. Revelation 20:4-6
Miracles of resurrection
In the New Testament, Jesus resurrected some people, such as Lazarus. These people rose again, but they still hoped for the eternal life in heaven.
“Therefore we do not become discouraged [spiritless, disappointed, or afraid]. Though our outer self is [progressively] wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16
That is what Paul tells us. We all hope for the eternal life with our God in the bodies not subjected to pain or corruption!
