The vital importance of the basics of the Christian Faith is evident, for without them Christianity loses its difference, substance and depth. Indeed the very essence of the Christian Faith rest upon these major doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ. There are six principles of these foundation teachings. In other articles, we have examined the first four. They are available for your viewing right here on EzineArticles. The six principles of the Doctrine of Christ is found in the Book of Hebrews Chapter six, verse one and two. In this particular lesson, we shall now look at the fifth of these six principles of the doctrine of Christ. It is the Doctrine of Resurrection of the dead.

Many people desire to know the truth concerning the resurrection of the dead. As a matter of fact, some have wondered if there is such a thing, and then came to their own conclusion that when you are dead, you are done. However, the Bible teaches otherwise. God's Holy Word reveals that there is resurrection from the dead and life after death.

Now concerning the resurrection of the dead, it is clearly stated in the Bible that there is more than one resurrection. This is why when mentioning this particular principle of the Doctrine of Christ, it is called "resurrection of the dead", instead of, "the resurrection of the dead."

If it had been called, "the resurrection of the dead, it may have been assumed and concluded that there is only one resurrection of the dead, of the which we all would be apart, together, at the same time. But there is more than one resurrection of the dead, wherefore the Bible simply says, "resurrection of the dead."

The Sacred Scriptures teaches that man is an eternal spirit being, possessing a soul and living in a physical body. We are more than just flesh and blood. And when our physical bodies are dead and in the grave, the real person, the real us, lives on. Where we go after physical death is determine by the choices we make in this life. According to the Bible, those of us who accept God's gift of eternal life, by receiving Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal Savior, will at the time of death, depart from our bodies to be with Christ in heaven. (2 Corinthians 5: 1-8)

As it pertains to those who have not received the Messiah God has sent, The Lord Jesus, they likewise will depart from their bodies. However their spirits will not go to be with the Lord, but the rather go to a place of suffering, a state which prove to be anything but pleasurable or fun. More will be said about the Bible's declaration of these things when we examine the sixth foundational principle of the Doctrine of Christ. For now, let us continue to look at the two resurrections spoken of in the Scriptures. Of these two resurrections, our Lord Jesus Christ spoke in the Book of John, chapter five.

Jesus spoke of the resurrection of the just and the resurrection of the unjust or righteous. So, there are two resurrections. And they are not the same, and neither is there times or seasons. The resurrection of the just will occur at the time of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. To put this in its context, according to the Bible, the Christian Faith is built upon the truth and reality that the Lord Jesus Christ has risen from the dead and ascended up the Heaven, from where He shall also descend back to the earth, twice, in the future. The first time the Master returns He will be coming for His people, those who know Him as Lord and Savior. This is spoken of as the "Blessed Hope" of the Believer. (Titus 1: 13, 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-16. We, who have given our lives to Christ look for, or should be looking for, with anticipation for the return of the Master. This is our hope. This is our dream. This is our joy and crown of rejoicing. Jesus is coming again for us and oh what hope it gives us in the midst of a world that is going insane, with no sight of changing course. For this reason we aim to live right and do what is godly and right. For this reason we purpose to live holy. (1 John 3: 2-3)

The second time the Lord Jesus Christ comes, is when He will come and reign over this world as the King of kings and Lord of lords. At this moment, He will come with His people. So, the first time He comes, He will come for His people and the next time He comes, it will be with His people.

When the Master comes for His saints, we will experience the resurrection of the just. Those of us who are in the graves will arise from the dead, with a new and glorified body, free from mortality and corruption. And then, those of us who are still alive will also experience this change and transformation of our bodies. We shall be changed. The shall we arise and go to Heaven to be with Jesus.
