- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
15:23 Afterward - The whole harvest. At the same time the wicked shall rise also. But they are not here taken into the account.
1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order. In his own rank or division. Christ the first fruits. The first order or division of Christ. Afterward. The second division is "they that are Christ's", who will be raised at his coming. The time of the third division, the wicked, is not named but hinted at in the beginning of 1Co 15:24. See also Joh 5:28,29 This is what Paul teaches here.

Christ has given an order of the resurrection. Blessed and holy are those in the first resurrection at His coming. The hour is coming when all in the grave will hear His voice, those who have done good unto the resurrection of life, and those that have done evil unto the resurrection of damnation. Jesus is the first fruits, and then we at His coming. Therefore be ye steadfast always abounding in the work of the Lord, for we know that our labor is not in vain in the Lord.
Law Code Pleader's comment on 2012-09-15 16:16:04:
There are 3 resurrections. The first one is the reign of 1000 years as indicated (Revelation 20:3) and a better resurrection (Hebrews 11:35). The second is the last 100 years when Satan will be loosed for a while (Revelation 20:7). The third is the lake of fire where enemies of the Creator will be thrown in and burnt up to nothing. Out of the 759 commandments/biblical laws, the particular ones that apply to us - I take it, that it is the amount of commandments that you do to "overcome the world" that will get you into your own order, be it the first or the second.

There is an out resurrection of first fruits overcomers of those who experience the coming of christ within the church has missed it
