Study Topic: The Hour is Coming and Now Is

This is a study topic on the hour is coming and now is. In the scriptures in the gospel of John, it is written that Jesus spoke about two different types of resurrections, one of the spiritual or mental implications, and the other of physical implications.

Welcome to (BSM), your online bible study supplement source. Today we’re still exploring death and the disposition of those who have passed on from this world! It is part of our study topic features, where we study a topic in the Bible one scripture at a time. Now back to today’s study topic!

In John’s gospel, chapter 5 verses 25 through 29, Jesus said, ‘of truth, I tell you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that hear, will live’.

Jesus continued by stating, the Father has life in Himself and has given the Son power to have life of Himself. The Son, Jesus the Holy Messiah, also has been given authority to execute judgment in the earth (emoji face of worry).

The Hour is Coming and Now Is

The hour that is coming and now is, is referring to the spiritual dead that hear the voice of Jesus, those that hear will live. They hear His voice through reading, and learning, from pastors who proclaim the gospel.

When they hear and do, they will live. This wasn’t the big deal. Jesus tells us not to be amazed at the spiritually dead awakening at hearing the gospel. We see this all the time! It is called education, awareness, and things of that mental and spiritual nature that awakes someone from a deep sleep.

It changes their lives and makes things better for them and the people around them. That is powerful and joyfully amazing at times, but the scary amazing thing is what Jesus said is coming next. The amazing thing is if we see people we know have died and were put into real graves.

It Now Is…

Study Topic: The Hour is Coming and Now Is

If we see them, this is what we should marvel at. However, Jesus said the hour is coming, but this time he did not say it now is, at verse twenty-eight.

He says the hour is coming when all that are in the graves of the earth will hear His voice and they will come forward out of their graves.

The Hour is Coming

The ones who have done well will go into the resurrection of life; while those who have done evil, will go into the resurrection of damnation. The question we should ask ourselves is, what are people still doing in the graves at the return of Jesus Christ?

They are in the graves because that is the design and order God has put in the earth. Man lives then dies, and awaits the time appointed the Lord has made for all mankind. The hour for spiritual quickening is now, the hour for physical quickening is still to come.

Praise the Lord.
