|Dan. 12:2 and the Pre-Great Tribulation Resurrection and Rapture|
Meanwhile, Dan. 12:6-7 makes it clear that the events of Dan. 12:1-2 (the Resurrection events of the Righteous and the Unrighteous, etc.) with respect to this particular Passage MUST be completed no later than by the end of the time, times and a half.
Therefore, the Resurrection events of Dan. 12:2 must occur at the SAME - ‘AT THAT TIME’ (post-GT). Why?
The dead of Dan. 12:2 will BOTH raise TOGETHER (AT THAT TIME) the Righteous first and then the Unrighteous – No thousand years gap thus, NOT at two different time intervals. In Dan. 12:1-2 we find AT THAT TIME where the Hebrew word for ‘time’ is eth is used as a singular and denotes a singular specific time and NOT a plural ‘times’. If there is a 1000 years gap between those that raise to everlasting life and those that raise to everlasting shame and contempt in Dan. 12:2 then that would be TWO specific periods of time.
Thus, the Righteous/Unrighteous dead following the GT of Rev. 20:4-5 raise SEPARATELY – The Righteous dead first and the Unrighteous dead second, then the REMAINING Unrighteous dead who die during the millennial reign of Christ 1000 years later.
To this end, how can the ‘Unrighteous dead’ then of Dan. 12:2 be the SAME as the ‘Unrighteous dead’ of Rev. 20:5 seeing that the ‘Unrighteous dead’ of Rev. 20:5 do not rise TOGETHER with the Righteous GT dead – the Unrighteous GT dead as stated rise 1000 years later.
Moreover, if the Resurrection of the Unrighteous dead of Dan. 12:2 occurs at the end of the Great Trib. then this is in direct conflict with Rev. 20:5 which declares those Unrighteous dead will not live again for 1000 years.
In summary, to reiterate Dan. 12:6-7 reveals that the Resurrection events, the Deliverance, etc. of Dan. 12:1-2 MUST all be fulfilled/completed no later than the ending of the time, times, and half time (GT). To this end, there can be NO 1000 years Resurrection gap between the Resurrection of the Righteous dead and the Unrighteous dead with respect to Dan. 12:2. Jesus Himself declared the same:
5:28-29 (emphasis added)
Likewise, in Matt. 25:41 & 46 Jesus declared that when He returned in His power and glory (2nd. Advent) that He would place the living SHEEP on His right hand and the living GOATS on His left hand. As such, the GOATS on His left hand will be sent into (deposited) in the Lake of Fire prepared for the devil and his angels, for their ETERNAL PUNISHMENT - never to rise again.
25:41 & 46
Moreover, Apostle Paul declared in 2 Thess. 1:7-10 that Jesus would take vengeance on those sinners who have troubled Christians when He is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels (2nd. Advent)
Thus, the conclusion is this - The 1st Resurrection event will be completed immediately following the GT - whereas the Unrighteous dead who die thereafter (AFTER - the rest of the dead) during the millennial reign of Christ will not rise until 1000 years later (Rev. 20:5).
Please note: there are ONLY 2 Biblical Resurrections – the 1st Righteous and the 2nd Unrighteous however, there are several ‘getting up’ events with respect to and comprising each of the two Resurrections.
Finally, short of any unwise theological attempts to both mutilate and disembowel the above stated Scriptures their interpretative summary is straight forward – there will be NO pre-Great Tribulation Resurrection/Rapture.
