AWAKE FROM THE DUST -Daniel 12:2
THE TRUTH BEHIND THE SCRIPTURE
"Sleep" is often used to describe "death". To understand this comparison, anyone who has passed out or been in a coma, has no knowledge of anything happening, until they wake up. Even a deep sleep with no dreaming gives us an idea of this concept of "sleep". We can go to sleep at 10:00 PM and wake up at 6:00 AM and have no concept of any time passing.
Daniel 12:2 is referring to a time of a resurrection from the dead, having been "asleep" in the dust of the earth. Some will awake to eternal life and some will awake to shame and everlasting contempt.
“Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned". -John 5:28-29
The Apostle Paul wrote the same message, "and I have the same hope in God as these men themselves have, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked". -Acts 24:15
The Apostle John wrote of this revealing from Christ, And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Revelation 20:4
This is the resurrection to eternal life for those "who have done what is good", the resurrection of the righteous. The last part of verse 5 and verse 6 of Revelation 20 makes it very clear about this resurrection of the righteous,
The fate of the unrighteous, the incorrigibles, those incapable of being corrected or reformed, those impossible to control or manage, is found in Revelation 20.
