"RE: Donna Danna: 01.22.23: everlasting bodies"


Donna,
Thank you very much for responding to me.
You had written:
"I don't think that the lost, unsaved humans receive everlasting bodies after they end up in the lake of fire.  It is not necessary since the human soul is immortal which means they would be conscious of their torment."

I agree with you, regarding the soul not requiring a body in order to suffer pain.
Since the rich man, that Jesus spoke about, had his body buried, and yet his soul, without his body, was in hell, suffering torment:

Luke 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abrahamís bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
  23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

What I was thinking about, mentioning the dead with everlasting bodies for the lake of fire, was in reference to what Jesus had said:

John 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
  29 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.

There will be a resurrection of damnation, where they come out of their graves, face the white throne judgment, and forever experience the second death.

Acts 24:15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.


There will be a resurrection of the unjust dead, and they will then appear at the white throne judgment.

Daniel mentioned, "many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth",
and then Jesus further clarified, "many", by what he said in John 8:28-29, quoted above, where he said, "all that are in the graves".
Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

But, again, not all resurrected people will have "everlasting life", there will still be resurrected people who will have "shame and everlasting contempt" in the second death.
