Can the dead live again? The joyful and comforting answer to that question is YES! Yes, the dead can live again!
Will all the dead live again?
While most of the dead will live again, not all of the dead will live again. Some will be judged by God as too wicked to live again. Who are those? That is God’s decision. Since we cannot say with certainty at this time, it is best to wait and see. Then we will know for sure.
You see; if everyone was given another chance, then we could do anything now and then straighten out inthe new life. The world is already bad as it is. Imagine what it would be like if everyone did whatever they wanted without regard for any law?
What is most important to us now is: will we live again should we die?
Since not all will be brought back to life again, it would be best for us to learn to enjoy living a godly life as of today. After all, living by God’s commandments is the best and most beneficial way to live, so why not start now? Any seeming advantage or pleasure obtained by breaking God’s laws is only a delusion. Such thinking has no substance. A temporary, brief advantage or pleasure is actually harmful on many levels.
Will the resurrection be in heaven or on earth?
A few will go to heaven
