    Hello Stephen,

    Ezekiel 37 says that those coming up in the second resurrection will be given physical life.
    Notice verses 5-10, which speak of these dry bones being given sinews, flesh, skin and breath, that is the breath of life (Genesis 2:7). Isaiah 65:20 is the scripture that the Church has used over the years to point to the possibility that the time period of judging these vast billions of people will be 100 years. The Church however, does not teach this as a dogmatic statement. It is nonetheless, quite interesting as Isaiah is talking about a time in the glorious future that is coming.

    Yes, Tyler, I agree that Isaiah 65:20 is the scripture that the Church has used over the years to point to the possibility that the time period of judging these vast billions of people will be 100 years. The Church however, does not teach this as a dogmatic statement. It is nonetheless, quite interesting as Isaiah is talking about a time in the glorious future that is coming.

    My thanks to Skip for his insightful comments. No matter how they present it, Christmas has it roots in paganism. And sadly, Christian leaders actually rejected the holy days of God as we find in Leviticus 23. Christ told His brothers to keep the Feast of Tabernacles, John 7 and Paul told the Gentile Christians in Corinth to keep Passover and the days of Unleavened Bread, 1 Corinthians 5: 7-8 and chapter 11: 23-34. I encourage you to pray to God for the strength to have that conversation with your family; that while you deeply love them, you will not be observing Xmas with them this year. May God bless you in your walk of faith.

    Thank you for your comment, Clorra. Yes, the article is about God's Spring Holy days as explained in Leviticus 23: 4-8 and observed in the New Testament, 1 Corinthians 5: 7-8. It is not about Easter, an ancient pagan counterfeit of the true resurrection of Jesus. How sad it is that the greatest event of all time -- the sacrifice and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is wrongly connected with such practices as coloring Easter eggs and eating chocolate rabbits. We can rejoice in the reading of His promise: "Because I live, you will will live also! (John 14:19).

    This is the kind of article we all need to read! It puts our focus on the real future, and helps us to put our trust in the only One who will bring lasting peace and happiness. Peter helps us to focus not on our 401 K, 403 B or other retirement funds, but upon the coming kingdom of God. May God hasten that day!
