Do you long for heaven? Biblical Christianity is not fueled by a vague belief in the afterlife. Just as Christ rose from the dead, all who are united to him in faith will be raised bodily to enjoy eternal reward. But what does this mean? How will the dead be raised? When will this take place? Joel Beeke unpacks these questions to reveal the multifaceted hope of our final resurrection, a hope that transforms the way we live and allows us to face death with confidence. See afresh the significance of Christ’s rising from the dead, and renew your joy in his coming.

“Second, the resurrection of Christ is God’s guarantee of our resurrection and our ultimate conformity to Christ.” (Page 11)

“Christ’s resurrection from the dead proves that his sacrifice has been accepted. It proves that his sacrifice has met every requirement of the justice and holiness of God, that God was satisfied by the work of Jesus. If Christ was not raised, the sin question is not settled, the devil is not defeated, atonement is not made, and there is no salvation for lost sinners.” (Page 7)

“These are the two hinges by which the door of salvation swings open: Christ’s death and resurrection.” (Page 11)

“and when time is no more, change will be impossible. As Ecclesiastes 11:3” (Page 22)

“Third, Christ’s resurrection guarantees that we will forever focus on Christ in glory. Revelation 7:15 says Christ will sit on the throne of glory forever in the midst of his people. Forever they will bask in his smile, worship at his feet, feast in his presence, bathe in his glory, and delight in his communion. Though they will enjoy the fellowship of saints and angels, Christ will be their all in all (Col. 3:11).” (Pages 12–13)
