    Correct, all here to go through the TEST. The elect chosen to stand against Satan and the word of God that will come from them trying to lead Gods children away from the false messiah at that time. antichrist will sit in Jerusalem claiming to be God with his supernatural powers and false peace wanting to be worshipped as a God and those that follow Satan thinking he is CHRIST, are in big trouble.

    There's resurrection after death as Jesus did.
