the one with whom Satan was disputing over the body of Mo-
ses (Jude 9).
The Old Testament saints are raised after the saints, who
have believed in Christ (the Mystery Church) are raised. The
“the dead in Christ will rise first”
(1 Thess. 4:16).
This is because the Old Testament saints lived prior to the Day
of Pentecost, before the Holy Spirit came and placed New Tes-
tament saints in Christ (1 Cor. 12:12-13; Acts 1:5).
Daniel the prophet gives us the time for the resurrection of
the Old Testament Jews.
“At that time Michael, the great
prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time
of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of na-
tions until then. But at that time your people, everyone whose
name is found written in the book will be delivered. Multitudes
who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlast-
ing life, others to shame and everlasting contempt”
Christ identified the time above as being at the time of
“…the abomination that causes desolation”
(Matt. 24:15), and
that it would be the beginning of great tribulation.
there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of
the world until now and never to be equaled again”
Michael throws Satan out of heaven with 1,260 days left in
the tribulation (Rev 12:6). It appears then, that Michael is go-
ing to follow him, for Michael is present at the resurrection of
the Old Testament Jews (as seen above), and will dispute with
Satan once again!
