CHRIST'S RESSURECTION GUARANTEES OURS

John 11: 25-26
"Christ Our Resurrection And Life!"
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that
believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he
live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall

Do you believe this? This is an amazing, wonderful
statement. Mind-boggling! What is this profound utter-

Christ in the Rapture or at death; appear before the
Judgment Seat of Christ; be present at the Marriage
Supper of the Lamb; escape the Tribulation; return
with Christ at the Second Coming; judge the nations
with Christ; rule with Christ during the Millennium;
judge wicked angels, the devil, and all God and Christ
rejectors at the Great White Throne Judgment; watch
