Q # 9240759


What did Christ mean when He told the man on the cross “Today I will see you in paridise” If the dead are not going to rise untill the rapture.


The dying thief was going to be in the presence of the Lord that very day. The Resurrection, which is future, is when we receive our new bodies. II Corinthians 5:8 says that we will “be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”
