I wanted to started this thread to share and discuss the difference between thoses two groups. Knowing that alot of other threads have discussed these, but my question I wanted to put forth is IF those of the first resurrection is Saints and those reign with Christ for a thousand years why are the Rest of the dead thought to be unbelivers?
When do we see Christ returning before the thousand years or after?
If after the thousand years wouldn't those that have died in Christ be raised at Christ return, include those that are among the rest of the dead?
Making those of the first special in the sence of order, each man in his own order, implying that those persecuted and martyred for the witness of Christ are among the first to be resurrected.
This would be of course those that have been martyred been resurrection first before the thousand years and reigning with Christ in heaven and we which remain reign with Christ here on earth as priest and then after the thousand years we which have dead in Christ would be raised to life after the thousand years at Christ return.
So how be you see those first and rest of the dead before and after the thousand years?
