• Saints, will all past generations have a chance to be saved in God's final move by resurrection from the dead?

    I feel like God showed me that a final generation of saints would capture the faith to reach with Him into past generations of the unsaved dead and raise many of them from the dead back into this life--the ones who God knows would have accepted Him should they have lived during the days of His final move and the fullness of His glory (remember how... show more
    I feel like God showed me that a final generation of saints would capture the faith to reach with Him into past generations of the unsaved dead and raise many of them from the dead back into this life--the ones who God knows would have accepted Him should they have lived during the days of His final move and the fullness of His glory (remember how Jesus mentioned Tyre and Sidon and how they "would have" repented had they have lived during His day...why would He mention this if he didn't have a special plan up His sleeve...otherwise, it wouldn't appear fair and we know that God is just--of course His ways are higher than ours, but he has opened up a can of worms for humankind seeing God as unjust by mentioning Tyre and Sidon's willingness to repent under specific circumstances if He has no plan for them--I believe God's heart is to save everyone possible, so if anyone would choose Him and repent from their heart under any circumstance or in a special move of His glory, I believe He will give them a chance). Until a generation captures this level of faith, I believe they will not be the final generation, because God's entire purpose for not simply having us in heaven already is to save as many as he can, and why wouldn't His final move be for all generations instead of simply one lucky final generation? I mean if we saved this entire generation, it wouldn't account for 5% of the approx. 2/3 of all past generations who have died unsaved. Surely our God is bigger than that. In addition, I have heard of a dead sinner being resurrected--Bill Bisanski, pastor of a church in Ft. Myers, Florida, who clawed his way out of hell after drowning in ice cold water while his grandmother prayed for him to return to life. I have also heard the scripture in Hebrews 9:27 that says we're apointed once to die and after that the judgment, but if God resurrects the dead from past generations into the final move just before the rapture, they will have only died once when the rapture comes. Entire false doctrines have been established on the inability to understand the mysteries of God's final decisions for people's eternities and what seems just...one of these false doctrines believes that there is no hell and we are all saved no matter what (Carlton Pierson from Tulsa, OK got into this). If this were the case, then why did God pay such a high price to send His only Son to die for us so that we'd have a chance? But, couldn't God provide a supernatural twist to our frustration about the multitudes that have already gone to hell by using the resurrection of the dead? At any rate, only God would know who would be chosen to rise again into this life and He also knows our hearts, so I am not talking about a free-for-all where we can just live however because God will give us a 2nd chance anyway...instead I am talking about a special plan of God for complete justice and fairness to all where all those who would ever (or would have ever) exhibit true repentance in the midst of His glory or final move are all given a chance, whether the currently living or the dead lost from past generations. I welcome any Christian perspective and input...it would be greatly appreciated...I can't find any information anywhere that shows that anyone else has ever thought about the possibility of God's use of resurrection from the dead in this manner to bring lost from past generations into His kingdom.
