Doesn't everyone get everlasting life?

The question from Jori

Hello John,

"Watch the fate of the wicked, first they get resurrected, then they are judged and afterwards simply destroyed." ( resurrection.htm )

Nevertheless will they be "judged out of those things which were written in the books”, that then will be opened” (Revelation 20:12, 13). With this can jet not be be refered to the report that was made up according to their former life and yet also not on a list of derectives that should be as a measuring-rod wherefor they on the ground of their former lives should be judged? Because " the wages of sin is death", have they because of their death the wage already earned (Ro 6:7, 23).

Are those not now resurrected so that they can show what their real attitude against God is and if they want to accept the redeemoffer of Christ, that is given for all (Mt 20:28; Jo 3:16)? Though their former sins are not accounted for, they still need the redeemoffer to be raised unto perfection. They must change their spirit of thinking, that was formed according to their former mode of life and thoughts, and harmonize them with the will of God and arrangements for the earth and it's inhabitants. What do you think? Wouldn't it be strange if God gave people a resurrection, only to destroy them immediatly afterwards?


The answer to Jori


Ofcourse will not all sins straight way be forgiven.

Do you want to take away the right of Jesjoewa ( Jesus ) to judge? See Acts 10:42; 2Cor5:10; 2Ti4:1; 1Pe4:5

Daniel 12:2 explains: And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some of them to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

Sins against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. See Mt 12:32. Also are there numbers of of sins as whoring, idolatry and greed ( see 1Cor 6:9-11, Eph 5:5 ) that ( unless someone turns himself / herself to do good and askes to be forgiveng ) not will be forgiven. By the way, to be forgiven is a unearned kindness and not something that's normal ( James 4:6 ).

Also will Adam en Eve and the people from Sodom and Gomorrah for example get no further resurrection to be judged, because they are already sentensed to death, because they are already at a Divine judgement sentenced to the deathpenalty!
