6. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so, shall we ever be with the Lord. KJV.
I believe the first resurrection is the “rapture” of the Church. But I believe many will not make it because there is so little teaching on “The Beast.” I believe many have the mark of the beast and believe they are safe. They will not know until they are faced to face with the plagues from Revelation. Then they will repent.
Rev. 20:4 states who will rule and reign with the Lord for a thousand years. I spoke about this in the following post:https://wendaswindow.com/2022/03/10/victory-over-the-beast-march-10-2022-scripture-and-song/
I believe in a spiritual Mark that copies the spiritual Mark in Rev. 14:1, Then I looked and lo the Lamb stood on Mt. Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand men who had His name and His Father’s name inscribed on their foreheads. Amp.
The Hebrew meaning for the word name means character. These have the character of the Father and Jesus. They follow the Lamb wherever He goes. They have learned to sing in the hard times. They are blameless and spotless before the throne.
They have learned to live spiritually raptured as they are seated next to Jesus in the heavenly realm safe from judgment. They dwell spiritually in the heavenly realm because they are living in the presence of God.
This I believe is the first resurrection.
11 Thess.1:5 This is positive proof of the just and right judgment of God to the end that you may be deemed deserving of His kingdom — a plain token of His fair verdict (which designs) that you should be made and counted worthy of the kingdom of God — for the sake of which you are also suffering.
