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

Bible states,

“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”

(Dan. 12:1-

2).

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.

“For then

there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of

the world until now and never to be equaled again”

(Matt.

24:21).

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!
