A conversation came up insinuating that we believed "only JWs would see the new system." Yet, the website specifically says that "billions will be resurrected." (Which agrees with John 1:29, 1 john 2:2, romans 5:12). I pointed out- So I've always been under the basic assumption that the timeline is perfect earth > Adam eats from the tree of "knowledge of good an evil" > we reject Jehovah's guidance and protection, learning evil > Jesus pays the price to cover ALL sin, allowing the earth a chance to return under God's guidance/protection/rule > armageddon is the reclaiming of that earth (not judgement) > all sin up until this point is wiped clean and the dead rise (salvation) (except perhaps those specifically judged in something like the flood or Sodom and Gomorrah) to do the "learning of good" part during Christ's millennial reign. > THEN a judgment of people by good and evil, the evil die, good live, Jesus returns all authority to Jehovah... happily ever after- But I'm having trouble finding scriptural support for a resurrection at the beginning of the new system... there is indeed a resurrection, but I'm being stumbled by the following verse- This SEEMs to change the context to where only those who happen to survive Armageddon will actually live on earth during the 1000 years under Christ and the 144,000 (who are resurrected immediately). It seems only after that 1000 years will people be resurrected only to be instantly judged based on their works, to either live or die eternally. In which case, what really is the function of Jesus' sacrifice and salvation from all sin for those who die before Armageddon and awake only when it's time to be judged? Would someone be able to clarify what I'm missing or misinterpreting regarding the prophecied resurrection? Thank you.
