that are in the graves shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and shall come forth;
they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life;
and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
Jesus Christ hath abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light.
2 Timothy 1:10
I am, saith the Lord, 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 never die.
Thy dead shall live, altogether with my dead body shall they arise.
I will ransom them from the power of the grave;
I will redeem them from death:
O death, I will be thy plague;
O grave, I will be thy destruction.

1 Corinthians 15:25
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
Then cometh the end;
1 Corinthians 15:24
and there shall be time no longer.

who shall change our vile body, that it
may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

2 Thessalonians 1:10
shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God;
and the dead in Christ shall rise first.
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4:16
The heavens shall pass away, the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works
