The Two Resurrections
Danayal (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.”
This verse is representative of the first resurrection (everlasting life) and the second resurrection (everlasting contempt), but what is this “shame” the wicked will experience?
The White Robes Of The Saints
9 “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of Yahuwah and for the testimony which they held:” 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Master, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”
These are the dead saints who have been killed, and the spirits of the saints are talking to Yahuwah asking Him to avenge their deaths. The saints are given white robes and are told to wait a little while longer until the other saints on earth have been killed.
Faith In The Blood of Yahuwshuwah
13 “And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
The saints will go through the great tribulation, but contrary to what some teach (that the great tribulation saints are those who are “left behind” because they are more wicked than any generation that ever lived), the saints will go through great tribulation because they have faith in the blood of Yahuwshuwah.
7 “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”
14 “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
The fine linen represents the righteousness of the saints. The saints will go through the great tribulation because they will choose Yahuwah as their Creator, Alahayam, and Savior and not the mark, number, and name of The Beast savior of this world.
The Resurrection Of Nakedness
Revelation 3:18 “I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.”
2 Corinthians 5:2-3
2 “For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.”
Revelation 16:15 “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”
The Scriptures prophesy and warns that there is a garment in heaven waiting for the people of Yahuwah, but if we do not watch, we can lose the garment, and have to walk naked and others will see the shame of our nakedness.
The Wicked Will Be Naked
Strong’s G1131 Gumnos And G1132 Gumnotes
a) unclad, without clothing, the naked body
b) ill clad
c) clad in undergarments only (the outer garments or cloak being laid aside)
d) of the soul, whose garment is the body, stripped of the body, without a body
a) naked, i.e. open, lay bare
b) only, mere, bare, i.e. mere grain not the plant itself
1) nakedness of the body
There are those who try to interpret the verses concerning nakedness by saying it means spiritual nakedness or a figurative nakedness, but The Scriptures are speaking of times when the literal nakedness of the wicked will be exposed because they will not have done what is necessary to receive a white robe and fine linen to cover their literal nakedness.
It Will Not Be A Time Of Pleasure
Before anyone among the wicked conceive in their mind that seeing all those wicked naked people will be a time of pleasure, let’s go to The Scriptures and let them reveal what it will be like coming up in the resurrection naked with no clothes on in the presence of the holiness of Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah, the holy angels, and the holy saints.
Adam And Chuwah (Eve)
6 “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened and they knew that they were naked and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8 And they heard the voice of Yahuwah Alahayam walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahuwah Alahayam among the trees of the garden.”
After Adam and Chuwah (Eve) sinned and realized that they were naked, they did not want to stand before Yahuwah naked, but hid themselves. This is the same way the wicked will feel when they stand naked before Yahuwah.
The Presence Of Yahuwah: His Voice
18 “And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. 19 And they said unto Mashah (Moses), Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not Alahayam speak with us, lest we die. 20 And Mashah said unto the people, Fear not: for Alahayam is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. 21 And the people stood afar off, and Mashah drew near unto the thick darkness where Alahayam was. 22 And Yahuwah said unto Mashah, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Yahsharahal, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.”
The people of Yahuwah were so afraid of the voice of Yahuwah which came with many sound effects that they begged Mashah (Moses) that they preferred that he speak with them rather than Yahuwah. The voice of Yahuwah was terrifying and they thought they would die from hearing His voice.
The Presence Of Yahuwah: His Glory And Holiness
Exodus 33:19 “And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of Yahuwah before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. 20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
In this conversation between Yahuwah and Mashah (Moses), The Scriptures reveal that Yahuwah will appear unto the naked wicked in a form that they will be able to stand because if He doesn’t they would die on the spot. The naked wicked will not die in the presence of Yahuwah. They will be preserved for the lake of fire which represents permanent death.
The Fury Of The Face Of Yahuwah
Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 38:18 “And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Yahsharahal, saith the Master Yahuwah, that my fury shall come up in my face.”
At this time, Yahuwah is angry with the wicked, but it does not show in His face. The time is coming when the anger of Yahuwah will show in His face, and Yahuwah made mankind in His image, and we are familiar with the signs of anger of the human face. This prophecy will be fulfilled at the end of the one thousand year rest, but the wrath of Yahuwah will show before the one thousand year rest. The appointed time of the wrath of Yahuwah is coming.
The Wrath Of Yahuwah
18 “For the wrath of Yahuwah is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of Yahuwah is manifest in them; for Yahuwah hath shewed it unto them.”
Some of these people are not ignorant of the truth, but choose unrighteousness despite what they know about Yahuwah as Creator and true Alahayam. They have had the truth preached to them, but reject it. They prefer the lie that fallen angels, mankind, Maitreyas, space brothers, or aliens are their creators. Many times in The Scriptures, Yahuwah uses the phrase “then they will know that I am Alahayam.” The wicked continually refuse to acknowledge Him as Creator and Alahayam even though the knowledge of His existence is obvious in their own bodies and the rest of creation, but the time is coming when the wicked will know without a shadow of doubt and for some it will be too late.
The Saints Will Be Protected From The Wrath Of Yahuwah
8 “But Yahuwah commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Mashyach died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”
1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to Yahuwah from idols to serve the living and true Yahuwah; 10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Yahuwshuwah, which delivered us from the wrath to come.”
3 “And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of Yahuwah in their foreheads.”
These locust like fallen angels are commanded not to hurt the people of Yahuwah. The seal of Yahuwah is the Holy Spirit, and the saints will rely on Yahuwah and have the name of Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah in their foreheads (mind).
The Cries Of The Blood
Genesis 4:10 “And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.”
Revelation 17:6 “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Yahuwshuwah: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”
Revelation 18:24 “And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”
Revelation 16:6 “For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
Babylon has the deaths of innocent blood on her hands and the innocent blood cries out to Yahuwah and the spirits of the dead cry out.
The time is coming when Yahuwah will not stand for the murder of the innocent anymore, and His fury will come up in His face and He will be on a mission to avenge and end the murder of His people.
The Naked Wicked Will Die For Their Own Sins
Revelation 20:12 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before Yahuwah; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.”
After Adam and Chuwah (Eve) sinned, they knew that they were sinners and recognized it in that they knew they were naked. Those who come up in the second resurrection of nakedness will know that they are naked and have done something wrong because they will have no covering to cover their nakedness because of their sins. Their deeds will be read out to them from the books which have a record of their life while they stand there naked.
The Naked Wicked Will Try To Cover Their Own Sins
Like Adam and Chuwah (Eve) who made fig leaves for themselves and placed blame on others, the naked wicked will try to blame others and make excuses (recount their “supposed” good deeds in life) for why they should receive a white robe. It will be a time of trying to find something physical to cover up their nakedness.
Yahuwah demonstrated to mankind when He killed the first animal(s) for their skins to make garments to cover the nakedness and sin of Adam and Chuwah (Eve) that innocent blood must be shed to cover sins. There is only one way for mankind to have their sins covered so that they can receive a white robe and that is through faith in the shed innocent blood of Yahuwshuwah who died for the sins of repentant mankind.
The fact that the naked wicked are in the second resurrection of nakedness will be evidence against them that they failed to accept Yahuwshuwah as the only begotten Son of Yahuwah in their life time.
The Nakedness Of Babylon
Revelation 17:16 “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.”
Yashayah (Isaiah) 13:8 “And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.”
The whore is Babylon. This is a perfect description of what happens when an atomic bomb is dropped, but whether the ten kings will use an atomic bomb or some other secret weapons technology unknown to us, Babylon is going to burn and those who remain in her will burn with her and some will have their clothes burned off and their literal nakedness exposed.
It Will Be A Time Of Fear Running And Hiding
Yashayah (Isaiah) 2:19 “And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of Yahuwah, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
“15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:” [this prophecy will be fulfilled at the second coming of Yahuwshuwah]
Revelation 20:11 “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.”[this prophecy will be fulfilled at the Great White Throne judgment which is synonymous with the second resurrection after the one thousand year rest]
Phan Thi Kim Phuc
“Phan Thị Kim Phúc, O.Ont (born 1963) is a Vietnamese-Canadian best known as the child depicted in the Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph taken during the Vietnam War on June 8, 1972. The iconic photo taken in Trang Bang by AP photographer Nick Ut shows her at about nine years of age running naked on a road after being severely burned on her back by a South Vietnamese napalm attack.”
“The village was suspected by United States Army forces of being a Viet Cong stronghold. Kim Phúc survived by tearing off her burning clothes.”
One of the images that remain vivid in my mind when I think of war is the image of this little girl running down the streets naked. Her nakedness has been broadcast across the world and placed on the cover of magazines even to this day. This will be the fate of many, if they do not come out of Babylon. Their literal nakedness will be exposed for the world to see.
“On Monday, August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, the Atomic Bomb “Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima by an American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, directly killing an estimated 80,000 people. By the end of the year, injury and radiation brought total casualties to 90,000–140,000. Approximately 69% of the city’s buildings were completely destroyed, and another 7% severely damaged.”
“Research about the effects of the attack was restricted during the occupation of Japan, and information censored until the signing of the San Francisco Peace Treaty in 1951, restoring control to the Japanese.”
Many of these people had their clothes burned off of them and their literal nakedness was exposed.
The First Resurrection
1 Corinthian 15:51-53
51 “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
2 Corinthian 5:2-3
2“For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.”
“Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of Yahuwah and of Mashyach, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
The Prophecy Of Literal Nakedness
Those who are in Babylon will have their literal nakedness exposed if they do not come out of her. Some of those that are designated to come up in the second resurrection will be literally naked and have their shame exposed. The nakedness of the wicked will be a sign to them that they have come up in the wrong resurrection. Some of those that come up in the second resurrection will be designated to be cast into the lake of fire and it is not necessary to give clothes to any of the wicked simply to have the clothes burned in the lake of fire (picture how the Germans made the Jews disrobe before they sent them to their deaths).
As for the people of Yahuwah, let us aim to endure to the end and receive a white robe and clean and fine linen through keeping the commandments of Yahuwah which includes faith in the blood of Yahuwshuwah which will cover our literal nakedness.
