4. What will Jesus do when He comes?

Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall __________ his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, to the __________ of life; and they that have done evil, to the __________ of damnation. (5:28,29)
NOTE: He will resurrect the dead - both the righteous and the wicked.
Read: Psalm 96:13; Psalm 98:9; Acts 17:31
Before the LORD: for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth. (96:13)
Before the LORD; for he comes to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity. (98:9)
Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance to all men, in that he has raised him from the dead. (17:31)
NOTE: He will judge everyone - both the righteous and the wicked.
5. How many resurrections will happen?
Read: John 5:28,29; Revelation 20:5,6; Daniel 12:2; Acts 24:15
Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, to the resurrection of __________ ; and they that have done evil, to the resurrection of __________ (5:28,29)
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the __________ resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that has part in the __________ resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. (20:5,6)
And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. (12:2)
And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust. (24:15)
NOTE: There will be two resurrections: 'The resurrection of life' and 'the resurrection of damnation.' If there is 'the first resurrection', there must be 'the second resurrection.' The first resurrection is the resurrection of those that are 'blessed and holy' and so, it must be the 'resurrection of life'. And so, the second resurrection must be the 'resurrection of damnation.'
 
Matthew 24:30-31  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
 
NOTE: This passage describes the resurrection of the elect - the righteous​.
Matthew 13:40-42  40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
NOTE: This parable describes the resurrection of those that offend and do iniquity - the wicked and how they will be cast into a furnace of fire - the second death.
6. What does the Bible say about he that has part in the first resurrection?
Read: Revelation 20:5,6
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. __________ and __________ is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the __________ death has no power, but they shall be __________ of God and of Christ, and shall __________ with him a thousand years. 
NOTE: The first resurrection is the resurrection of those who are blessed, who are holy, on whom the second death has no power, who shall be priests of God and of Christ, and who shall reign with Christ a thousand years. Therefore, the second resurrection is the resurrection of those who are not blessed, who are not holy, on whom the second death has power, who shall not be priest of God and of Christ.
In short, the first resurrection is the resurrection of the righteous and the second resurrection is the resurrection of the wicked.
7. What does the Bible say about those who shall come forth to the resurrection of life and those who shall come forth to the resurrection of damnation?
Read: John 5:28,29
Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done __________, to the resurrection of life; and they that have done __________, to the resurrection of damnation.
NOTE: The resurrection of life is the resurrection of those who have done good. The resurrection of damnation is the resurrection of those who have done evil.
Therefore, the resurrection of life is the first resurrection [the resurrection of the righteous], and the resurrection of damnation is the second resurrection [the resurrection of the wicked].
8. Who will have part in the first resurrection [the resurrection of life]?

But the fruit of the __________ is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (5:16,19-23)
NOTE: They who are in Christ are those who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. They do not fulfill the lust of the flesh [the works of the flesh]. They bear the fruit of the Spirit.

And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (20:13)
The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust to the day of judgment to be punished. (2:9)
NOTE: To appear before the judgment seat of Christ. Every man must die first (the first death), then, be resurrected to appear before the judgment seat of Christ. The unjust will then be punished.
