The Non-Elect Dead Are Only Raised for Condemnation
Resurrection is for the elect alone.
When I say that only the elect alone are raised to life, I am not denying that the non-elect are raised after the first death in order to be destroyed in the second death. Since God is holy and just, that future judgment of the non-elect is necessary and important.
But the resurrection to life is only for the elect, and that is why I Corinthians 15 pays no attention to the non-elect. “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.” (v17-19)
Even though non-elect do not suffer until the second coming, Christ has never known them and they have no safety from His coming wrath.
Hebrews 9: 27-28, “And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.”
When a person dies, life has left the body; breath has left. Genesis 2:7 teaches us that dust plus breath from God is the “soul”–the living being. So death is the “separation” of life from a person. I have no problem with the word “separation” if you also continue to tell us what is being separated.
But the idea of separation surely does not prove the Roman Catholic dogma of a separate and immortal “soul”. God alone is immortal and will give immortality to His justified elect.
If the death of death is no more death, does that mean the world keeps all the death it already has? That death has won all its victories, and that they cannot be undone, but now there will be no more deaths added to the ones that already happened? One thing I know: death is not our friend but our enemy. Resurrection is our hope.
“Poured out his soul” goes to the definition of the word “soul”. The soul is the blood; the soul is that which can physically die. That is what a reading of Isaiah 53 gives unless you impose some non-biblical definition of soul onto the text.
