The apostle Paul teaches that the end of time follows the resurrection of Christians at the Lord’s Second coming
1 Corinthians 15:22-24 For as in Adamall die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order:Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. 24
Then cometh the end
, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; whenhe shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
The Second Coming of Christ is not in phases or stages. Jesus Christ will returnin the same manner in which He went away.
Acts 1:11 [The angels stood by] Whichalso said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus,which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seenhim go into heaven.
Jesus taught that this resurrection will occur on the “last day”,
John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believethon him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Jesus also taught that the resurrection of His people will occur at the same timewith the resurrection of the wicked
. Paul and Daniel taught the same. On this pointthere is a divine consistency throughout
Scripture. John 5:28-29 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are inthe graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good,unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompensetribulation to them that trouble you; 7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, whenthe Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not thegospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10 When he shallcome to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (becauseour testimony among you was believed) in that day. Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some toeverlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
An “hour” is coming, a specific point in time, when “all” will come forth from thesphere of the dead. The resurrection of the righteous and the resurrection of thewicked will not be separated by a thousand years or even by one week. Both occur onthe Last Day.
