Matthew 27:51-53 says Jesus resurrected with Saints raised from death who came out of the graves and went to Holy City Jerusalem so appeared to many people. The Temple veil was torn, rocks split by earthquakes tombs opened many dead saints were raised from death. So they came out of graves as Christ was raised and went into Jerusalem so alive again.Matthew 27:51-53 is clear the dead were alive and so went home to their families seen by over 500 people. Some speculate they ascended into heaven like Jesus did after they were raised from death and seen after their appearances to many. A research of this true story does not talk about them anymore in the Bible after appearances during Jesus’ Resurrection. They symbolized and illustrated Christ’s victory over death to confirm God’s gift of the resurrection power of God. Christ defeated death and raised many people during his ministry. Victory over death is again revealed to prove to all that the dead in the grave for years came back to life as God promised will happen in resurrection of the dead for Rapture.They were alive not so like zombies or comatose walking dead but came back when the Spirit of life entered them to restore life. They were eating, drinking living normal lives like Jesus did after receiving His Glorified body in physical flesh on the earth. Bodily Resurrection is Life force restored to flesh, James 2:26 Resurrections in the Bible.The Soul gets back into the body, 1 Kings 17:17-23 so the flesh is warmed again as seen in 2 Kings 4:32-35. The Resurrected speak, Luke 7:15 and bodily functions resumed in Luke 8:55; John 11:14, 17. A consciousness is regained in Acts 9:37 so life force is restored to a flesh in James 2:26. Resurrections in the Bible happen often through Jesus and His disciples. The Resurrection of the dead happens and is well documented in books, and you tube videos for testimonies to the GLORY of God. Again today in real life many churches witness resurrection all over the world of the dead as medically proven and certified dead by doctors. Some wake up in the mortuaries before burial or after in their graves still alive.Jesus said the dead will arise so women received their dead back alive because though they died yet they shall live as Christ promised. The living in Luke 24:5 have physical bodies and Luke 24:36-43 says they are not invisible spirits ghosts but conscious, with cognitive physical activity. John 12:1-2 describe the human traits of those raised from the dead.People were raised from death as an act of God’s mercy in Luke 7:12-13 provides confirming evidence of God’s POWER, presence and approval of life extended by the grace of God. Elijah as a prophet in 1 Kings 17:24 received God’s approval alive into God’s PRESENCE. Luke 7:16-17 is similar reason for Matthew 27:52-53 to prove God’s Authoriy over death. Prophets and Jesus already foretold that there will be resurrection here on earth for a reason. Resurrection accomplished increased faith in God’s Miracle POWER so many people believed in John 11:45; 12:10-11, 17-18; Acts 9:42 like Lazarus, Dorcas and saints of Matthew 27: 52-53 are favours of God miracle opportunity to Glorify God in Luke 7:15-16 proves Jesus True Witness Messiah Son of God.Like Rapture resurrection of the dead to come to live in heaven they continued to live until eventually they died later. In 1 Corinthians 15:22 sees son lived in 1 Kings 17:22 so presented to his mother after raised from death. In Luke 7:15 Lazarus resumed his normal activities in John 12:1-2 they continued to live to ripe old age and succumbed to death. Ecclesiastics talks of mankind returned to dust and spirit returned to God after death. And Rapture says in the twinkle of an eye dematerialized body reformed instantly by the miracle POWER of God. It sounds illogical to human minds that a decayed body is restored with organs functions normally again. Supernatural things of God are beyond the analytical thinking process so is received by faith.All in Christ will rise again in Rapture as the Saints did during the resurrection of Jesus. The Saints uplifted faith of those traumatized by Jesus death or suffering in state of fear for their lives. They had seen Jesus raise the dead but somehow could not understand Jesus telling them if his death and resurrection. So miracle helped to assure them of Eternal life in Christ in God’s Kingdom ruled by Jesus.Ezekiel predicts the coalition union of return of two nations Israel and Judah in verses 15-22 by two sticks tied. This is symbolic of uniting of Jews and Gentiles in Christ and His Church. The prophet foretells the Kingdom of God in Christ to be set up in Israel and God’s Sanctuary to Glorify and worship God by His Grace in verses 23-28 to fulfill God’s Covenant.Those resurrected went to their homes in Matthew 27:53 appeared and then ascended into God’s PRESENCE later in paradise. This shows the sting of death had been taken away so lived out their physical lives and died like others raised but Jesus is the exception. In Acts 2:24; Colossians 1:18; Revelations 1:18 Jesus will resurrect the dead bodies in Christ in 1 Corinthians 15:22 together with those alive in Rapture to heaven.The powers and authorities misjudged Jesus and thought killing Him will end the Kingdom of God. The lesson is Christ has Power over physical and spiritual death in John 11:25-26. Christ Jesus is real so have faith in Him and in His Power over death. Revelations 1: 18 says the dead in Chrit will experience first bodily resurrection in Rapture as John 5:28-29 confirms, live forever in eternal life with God, Jesus and family. Resurrection stops death due to sins of Adam and Eve’s DNA passed into many generations after thousands of years so erased by the Blood of Jesus. In Christ is eternal life of Colossians 2 :12-13 and in Romans 6:4-6. Christ’s Power over both the physical and spiritual death is seen in John 11:25-26 to restore mankind to God. Through Role Model Jesus, nation of Israel returns to God in a life Eternal through Jesus Christ’s Power of defeat over death to live forever in Victory.
