Resurrection of the dead @ will be simultaneous both of the just and the unjust Daniel:12:2; John:5:28-29; Romans:2:6-16; 2Thessalonians:1:6-10). The qualities of the resurrection body will be different from those of the body laid in the grave ( 1Corinthians:15:53-54; Philippians:3:21); but its identity will nevertheless be preserved. It will still be the same body ( 1Corinthians:15:42-44) which rises again. As to the nature of the resurrection body, (1) it will be spiritual ( 1Corinthians:15:44), i.e., a body adapted to the use of the soul in its glorified state, and to all the conditions of the heavenly state; (2) glorious, incorruptible, and powerful (54); (3) like unto the glorified body of Christ Philippians:3:21); and (4) immortal Revelation:21:4). Christ's resurrection secures and illustrates that of his people. "(1.) Because his resurrection seals and consummates his redemptive power; and the redemption of our persons involves the redemption of our bodies Romans:8:23). (2.) Because of our federal and vital union with Christ ( 1Corinthians:15:21-22; 1Thessalonians:4:14). (3.) Because of his Spirit which dwells in us making our bodies his members ( 1Corinthians:6:15; Romans:8:11). (4.) Because Christ by covenant is Lord both of the living and the dead Romans:14:9). This same federal and vital union of the Christian with Christ likewise causes the resurrection of the believer to be similar to as well as consequent upon that of Christ ( 1Corinthians:15:49; Philippians:3:21; 1John:3:2)."
