Those who died IN Christ (brothers and sisters with Christ) will be resurrected at the Great White Throne of Judgement, to be judged by what they did in Jesus' Name. They will be resurrected from their natural bodies to their spiritual bodies...what was corruptable God will make incorruptable...what was mortal, God will "put on" immortality.

Those who died WITHOUT Christ (not brothers or sisters of Christ), the wicked...the unrighteous, will be resurrected at the Great White Throne of Judgement, to be judged according to their deeds...the extent of their judgement will be according to their deeds. Their judgement will have it's place in the Lake Of Fire, for however long God deems necessary to pay for their offences...and then they will mercifully be put to death...annihilated.

Matthew 5:29 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*

Those who died WITHOUT Christ, and died with the mark of the beast on their forehead and or hand...and who worshipped the beast, will remain in the Lake of Fire right along with the Beast...the false prophet...the devil and his angels...to suffer eternally together.

...Scripture teaches us that the beast, his angels, the false prophet, and all those who have the mark of the beast and worshipped him will be tormented forever and ever...

Revelation 14:9 And the third Angel followed them saying with a loud voice, if any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is powered out without mixture into the cup of His indignation, and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone, in the presence of the holy Angels and the presence of the Lamb:

11 And the smoke of *their* [whose torment...? any man who worshipped the beast and his image, and received his mark in his forehead, or in his hand], torment ascendeth up forever and ever. And *they* [who...? any man who worshipped the beast and his image, and received his mark in his forehead, or in his hand], have no rest day or night, *who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. No where does Scripture say ALL who die not knowing the Lord will burn eternally. Many who died not knowing the Lord will be mercifully and justly annihilated.

Daniel 12:2 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.

1 Corinthians 15:
50 Brothers and sisters, this is what I mean: Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. What decays cannot inherit what doesn't decay.
51 I'm telling you a mystery. Not all of us -->[brothers and sisters IN Christ] will die -->[some of us will still be alive when Jesus comes back], but we-->[brothers and sisters IN Christ] will all-->[brothers and sisters IN Christ]
52It will happen in an instant, in a split second at the sound of the last trumpet. Indeed, that trumpet will sound, and then the dead will come back to life. They will be changed so that they can live forever--> [those in Christ...brothers and sisters IN Christ].
53This body that decays must be changed into a body that cannot decay. This mortal body must be changed into a body that will live forever.
54When this body that decays is changed into a body that cannot decay, and this mortal body is changed into a body that will live forever, then the teaching of Scripture will come true: "Death is turned into victory!
55Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?"
56Sin gives death its sting, and God's standards give sin its power.
57Thank God that he gives us-->[brothers and sisters IN Christ] Christ.
58So, then, brothers and sisters, don't let anyone move you off the foundation [of your faith]. Always excel in the work you do for the Lord. You know that the hard work you do for the Lord is not pointless.

My belief in Annihilation has everything to do with my believing in the Word of God and His truth...over man's. I believe that God is merciful...righteous and just...and His judgements are merciful...righteous and just...and who He deems deserves eternal torment in the fiery pit along with the Beast, the false prophet, and the devil and his angels...He is God and will determine who that is that it will be...and whoever He deems not deserving of eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire, who died not knowing Christ, He will mercifully annihilate.



...only I believe we can do something to change that in this life...that's what Christ came for to do...God's precious Gift...to those who will.

In Christ's love...and prayerfully in His truth,
lot of fruit there to ponder upon !!!

HotinAz what is your take on the rich man and Lazarus parable, because we are traditionally taught that the rich man's position is eternal, how does someone who believes in annihilation interpret this parable ?.
sparrow started another thread on this pcamps so as not to take this thread off topic.
