If Joseph Smith is resurrected, can all righteous Mormon people be resurrected after death even thou they are not prophets, like James Faust, or Neil Maxwell, David O McKay, etc-the three Nephites, John the Beloved?


Dear Elliot,

Whoever said that Joseph Smith had been resurrected?? It’s true that certain prophets have been resurrected in order to restore their stewardships to the Lord’s Church during the period of the restoration of all things, called the fullness of times.. But in general all the good people of the earth will be resurrected during the first resurrection at the beginning of the thousand year millennial reign of the Savior on the earth. Not all will be resurrected at the same time. There is certainly an order to the process, but the details can be a little complicated. None of the evil people that have lived on the earth will not be resurrected during the first resurrection, but they all will be remanded to the custody of Satan in hell for a thousand years, and will then be resurrected at the end of the millennium.
