The Resurrection of the Wicked
Prosecuted under an Elizabethan act against nonconformity, he was imprisoned for three months, which was extended to twelve years, with a brief respite during the sixth year. Bunyan emphasized the centrality of the Bible as the foundation for belief and conduct, stressing the grace of God as the basis of predestination, the focal point of eternal salvation. None of the elect could fall from grace. Though Bunyan was primarily an adherent of the Calvinist tradition, his view of God as Savior, providing salvation from divine wrath rather than God as sovereign ruler, and his belief in the necessity of justification through grace alone showed influence of Luther.
The separatist tradition shaped his view of the sacraments. He strongly opposed teachings of the Quakers and the Arminians. Format: Digital.

Resurrection of the Dead and Eternal Judgment - John Bunyan
Overview From the author's preface, "Though this be a small treatise, yet it doth present thee with things of the greatest and most weighty concernment, even with a discourse of life and death to eternity: opening, and clearing, by the scriptures of God, that the time is at hand, when, there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust; even of the bodies of both, from the graves where they are, or shall be, at the approach of that day. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.

For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep. From the above passages of Holy Scripture we are clearly taught beyond any doubt that:. With the resurrection of the dead and the final judgement, death is abolished.
The end of the world also comes, but this does not mean the catastrophic end to the world but rather change and finality. Sin will disappear. Thrice-holy God, Who with Your infinite love created and sustain us, You admire and bless us whenever we do good, You tolerate us when we sin, You forgive us when we repent. You deigned that Your only begotten Son should become man, to be crucified, to die as a man, to be resurrected and become the first-born from the dead, and to make possible our own resurrection.
We thank You for all these things.

We ask You please to give us repentance. Make it so that we will proceed to the resurrection of life and not to judgement.
Grant us eternal life.
