1st Resurrection- Revelation 20:4-6

REVELATION 20:4-6- THEN I SAW THRONES, AND SEATED ON THEM WERE THOSE TO WHOM THE AUTHORITY TO JUDGE WAS COMMITTED.  ALSO I SAW THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAD BEEN BEHEADED FOR THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS AND FOR THE WORD OF GOD, AND THOSE WHO HAD NOT WORSHIPPED THE BEAST OR ITS IMAGE AND HAD NOT RECEIVED ITS MARK ON THEIR FOREHEADS OR THEIR HANDS.  THEY CAME TO LIFE AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST FOR A THOUSAND YEARS.  THE REST OF THE DEAD DID NOT COME TO LIFE UNTIL THE THOUSAND YEARS WERE ENDED.  THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.  BLESSED AND HOLY IS THE ONE WHO SHARES IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION!  OVER SUCH THE SECOND DEATH HAS NO POWER, BUT THEY WILL BE PRIESTS OF GOD AND OF CHRIST, AND THEY WILL REIGN WITH HIM FOR A THOUSAND YEARS.  

 

1 CORINTHIANS 15:20-23- BUT IN FACT CHRIST HAS BEEN RAISED FROM THE DEAD.  THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN ASLEEP.  FOR AS BY A MAN CAME DEATH, BY A MAN HAS COME ALSO THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD.  FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, SO ALSO IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE.  BUT EACH IN THEIR OWN ORDER: CHRIST THE FIRSTFRUIT, THEN AT HIS COMING THOSE WHO BELONG TO CHRIST.
