1. In The Beginning Who would not love to see their loved ones back from the dead? But the resurrection  is to be “each in his own order,” as delineated in these articles. read more…

2. Resurrection Means Hope Along with the faithful followers of old, who relied on God’s word as the basis for their hopes (Acts 26:6-8), we are likewise exhorted to depend on God’s precious promises for bolstering our hopes (Romans 15:4, 1 Peter 3:15),  thereby decreasing  our anxiety and stress daily. read more…

3.  By One Man Came the Resurrection The Ransom: Basis for all Resurrection Hopes Jehovah God formed Adam in Eden “of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7 ASV).  Then He put the man whom he had formed into the garden on the east side of Eden. And he caused two kinds of tree to grow there, “the tree of life … and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” read more…

4.  Temporary Resurrections Before Calvary  Raisings Before Calvary Typified the Resurrection The Bible points us to the one great hope for the world: the resurrection  of the dead. It tells us of the vitally-important resurrection of Jesus Christ, but also of the raising of eight others from the dead…read more…

5.   The Resurrection of Jesus Christ Jesus Gave His Life for Us, and was Raised Divine It  was the early hours of  Sunday morning when Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James went to our Lord’s tomb to further care for their Master’s bodily remains. The two women who were with the Master in his last moments  of life at Calvary would now be the first to hear the words, “He has risen.” read more…

6   News  and  Views Current Events To the Catholic Church’s “seven deadly sins,” Pope Francis has added the “15 ailments of the Curia.” Francis issued a blistering indictment of the Vatican bureaucracy, read more…

7.  Today  in Prophecy Leadership Crisis in the World Fifty-six  percent of respondents to the Survey on the Global Agenda agreed that the world has a leadership crisis. The major global issues of today — economic inequality and violence in the Middle East among them — have failed to be addressed effectively by most countries. read more...

8.  Resurrection of the  Faithful Church The Bride is Raised Like Her Bridegroom Our lead text indicates that the raising of the saints to their heavenly reward was to be at the return of Jesus. The saints that died long ago rested in the peaceful sleep of death until the end of the age, awaiting their reward. Thus, when the first Christian martyr, Stephen, died by stoning, Acts 7:60 says “he fell asleep.”  There he rested, unaware  of the passage  of time, until the return of Jesus and the resurrection of the saints. read more…

9.  Resurrection of the  Great Multitude A Lesser Spirit Reward God’s heavenly call is only to the 144,000, the Bride, the little flock, but provision  has been made for a great multitude who start well, falter along the way, yet eventually overcome. “I heard, as it were, a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven … And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude and as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty peals of thunders saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns” (Revelation 19:1,6). read more…

10.  Resurrection of the  Ancient Worthies They Will Turn Many on Earth to Righteousness We can identify the first and last members of this class. The first was Abel who was murdered by his brother Cain. And the last named was John the Baptist. The apostle Paul gave us an abbreviated list in Hebrews chapter 11. After a short list of Ancient Worthies, verse 32 clearly implies he had many more in mind. read more…

11.  The Resurrection of the  Whole  World The Rest of the World Will Learn Righteousness Though such doubt is understandable,  the Bible contains  divine promises, assuring us that there will be a resurrection  of the dead. All who desire to come into harmony with God’s arrangements will be afforded an opportunity to obtain eternal life on a perfected earth. This will bring exceeding joy to all who have been victimized by death, the greatest enemy known to man. read more..

12.  After the  Final  Exam Sin and Death Will Give Way to Everlasting Life After Christ’s thousand-year kingdom has restored humanity to the perfection  lost in Eden, Satan is to be loosed “to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth” (Revelation 20:13 ASV). That will be the re-formed world’s final examination. What little the Bible says about it is given in the type of Israel at the Red Sea, read more…
