View Full Version : What Will The resurrection be Like?
11-16-2002, 02:10 PM
For those of you who have wondered about this..it is likely to be many years off in the future..after all, JC hasn't made a re-appearance for some time (roughly 2000 years). Anyway, I was wondering if being resurrected is like turing a computer on..whether the machine has been off for 20 seconds or 20 centuries, "It" has no perception that time has passed.
Anyway: suppose you die, and it turns out to be the "big sleep". Then, countless millenia from now, and angel blasts his trumpet, and you begin to re-assemble from whatever you've decayed into..what willit be like?
Will it be like waking up?
Your thoughts, please!:confused:

Your question is invalid, as it assumes that Yoshke haNeztor <em>was</em> Messiah ;)

The resurrection will not be televised.

Actually, if it does happen (which, of course, it won't) it will be more like a classic rock reunion tour.
Jesus to Paul: We're putting the apostles back together.
Paul to Jesus: Come on man, nobody wants to see us anymore. Besides, I've got a great gig here writing letters to the people in Purgatory.
Jesus: Is that all you want to do? Write letters. (Pause) Well, I guess Pete was right about you.
Paul: Pete? What'd he say? Is he doing this show?
Jesus: Oh yeah, (fingers crossed, er...crucifixed behind back.) And he said you'd be a no-show. Too busy with your letters to hit the road. Too much into the easy life to get back in the trenches.
Paul: Hey, now, wait a minute. That's not fair. I'd do it, but I've got so much to do here. The boss wants me to work on a new epistle for the Witnesses bunch and there's a whole bunch of psalms ready to go to the new website...how can I fit in a tour too?
Jesus: No problem. Just bring your laptop and the roadies can handle the website too. They're pros.
Paul: Well...is John in? 'Cause if he's not, you can forget it.
Jesus: Hey, Would John miss a chance to say "I told you so?"
Paul: ...okay, I'm in.
At least, that's what I think would happen, if it did, and was at all cool.
