These are the living and the dead which are now judged, which receive their award and their punishment from God according to his words, because God is just, and he gives out according to merit. Read more:
On this website we have on several occasions dealt with the difference between life and death and particularly with the way Jesus makes use of these ideas. Jesus describes with being dead a state of being dead spiritually. Actually there is nothing that really can be dead, also no material, like plants or animals. Everything consists of spiritual substance and is always alive. Physics makes this especially clear, which describes to us the world as consisting of energy, which is always moving.
In the creed it says: I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
Now this last part of the last sentence, to judge the living and the dead, is often understood to mean that then those men are judged who are alive at that time and also those who have died.
A court is imagined where men are judged. Judging means to align. And that is more what then is going to happen. The aligning is more a separating into two groups, the living and the dead. The spiritual alive are separated from the spiritual dead and that happens by the spiritual alive being raptured and the spiritual dead being again, the soul together with the body, engendered into matter. And those already deceased, which are still in the kingdom of darkness, will be judged in a similar way. The spiritual alive will be promoted to the kingdom of light, and the spiritual dead are also spawned into matter.
The kingdom of darkness therefore gets emptied and therefore disappears because it is no longer needed: "Heaven and earth shall pass away." Matthew 24:35.
The deceased, which are already in the kingdom of light, remain there; for them the decision, the judging, had already taken place, when they got newly born spiritually, either already on earth, or then in the kingdom of darkness.
In the creed it is then said: I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
The resurrection of the body is now often understood that we, after we were deceased, will rise again as human beings. Something similar will happen to those people who take part in the rapture. They really return, with their human body, to the surface of the earth. But they did not die, but were raptured alive, with their bodies.
But the real resurrection of the flesh happens exactly like it happened to the flesh of Jesus. His flesh got glorified. That means, his body became more and more like his soul, which was completely ruled by the spirit. And through this the body could become more and more spiritual and when he died and was buried, he could rise and that means that he could rise with his totally spiritualized body and take it with him and therefore did not leave a body behind on earth. We will experience something similar. Some of us, like Enoch and Elijah, did this already when they were still on earth. Most of us will do it after bodily death. A possible effect of this will be the possibility to appear to others with this spiritualized body, in heaven or on earth, or in the kingdom of darkness, as it was done by Jesus, once in hell, and then also in the 40 days between Easter and Pentecost, and as he can do it now, and as he will do it particularly in the time of the end.
A Christian dies, leaves a body on earth, which gets buried. He, his soul, then goes straight into the kingdom of light, without first having to stop over in the kingdom of darkness. He can then also go to the kingdom of darkness to persuade souls there to follow him into the kingdom of light and will make on that occasion use of his former body insofar that he materializes his body, which corresponds to his body he left on earth. He does it exactly the same way as we now materialize our body ourselves, only that we are now hardly aware of it, but in the hereafter we do this consciously, so as Jesus did after the resurrection, when he appeared to the two disciples on the way to Emmaus or to the disciples in the upper room or at his ascension. And then we have, exactly like Jesus, also the possibility to influence the consciousness of the visited person, so that he can see spiritual things, for instance us.
To make it quite clear what is to be understood under the living and the dead in the creed: It is not about the bodily living and the bodily dead, but it is about the spiritual living and the spiritual dead.
And with the resurrection of the flesh it is about the spiritualizing of the flesh, as the flesh of Jesus was spiritualized.

Now follows the message from Bertha Dudde with the title:
23. February 1942. B.D. NR. 2242.
The demon of hate and of lack of love poisons the world, and this means the start of the spiritual collapse, of spiritual decay - it means the downfall both spiritually as well as earthly. What has completely become lacking of love must be regarded as being lost for eternity, i.e., it cannot acquire on earth eternal life, but death, therefore complete lifelessness is its lot for eternal times. Consequently the earth has become unnecessarily as redemption station for the spiritual, because it has used no possibility, and that is why the time of stay has ended for the spiritual on earth a redemption period finds its conclusion, so, as it is announced in word and script. A time of development lasting millennia ends with a judgement, with a separation of the redeemed and the unredeemed of that spiritual turned towards God and that completely far from God. God judges his creatures, i.e., he finally separates his from the followers of Satan; the former he gives a free life in happiness and binds the opponents anew in form, in matter, which they desired and forgot God because of it, therefore became completely estranged from him. These are the living and the dead which are now judged, which receive their award and their punishment from God according to his words, because God is just, and he gives out according to merit. Those will live who have recognized God, who love him and fulfil his will; but being damned to eternal death those who did not acknowledge him and turned towards his adversary and whose life was just lack of love. God certainly has infinite patience with his creatures, and he still postpones the day; but his patience is not valued by mankind because those who do not acknowledge God, they also lack every faith in a judgement of God, and every hint at it is unsuccessful. And so it will come unexpectedly for men who have no faith, and trigger greatest horror, but brings rescue in greatest trouble to the believers because they are in extreme distress for the sake of their faith. And now the separation has to take place because no possibility of improvement exists any longer for the unbelievers who vegetate in fullest lack of love, because all tests before, suffering and earthly misery, are unsuccessful and the power of Satan immense, because they submit to him and seek the life of the believing people. This is the time of the complete decay which precedes the last judgment, which means the end of the present earth and the beginning of a new time epoch, which is exceptionally significant spiritually, because God banishes evil anew for inconceivable long time. Amen. B.D. NR. 2242.
Now follows the next message from Bertha Dudde with the title:
Last Judgement. End of epoch of redemption.
24. February 1942. B.D. NR. 2243.
The entire mankind will be judged at the Last Judgement, and everyone, whether good or evil, will receive his wages. And therefore there will be a separation of the good from the bad, the just from the unjust, the believers from the unbelievers, and God himself will sit in judgement and reward or punish everyone according to merit. This judgement is inevitable and concludes a significant period, a time of favour, which was granted to the unredeemed on earth through Gods over-great love. This time was a time of constant wrestling of the luminous spiritual with darkness; it was a time of struggle of all beings which strive up, and in this time the beings had the possibility to develop themselves to light beings so they just wanted. But God also imposed limits on the beings by the period being determined beforehand for eternities, which was available to the beings for redemption. And this time was certainly so apportioned that it was completely enough for the total redemption, however it was not used in that measure as it could have been used, and no notice was taken of countless possibilities because the beings did not make use of their free will or abused it and chained themselves anew to the power from which they were to free themselves. On the day of judgement the being now has to answer for this free will and its use, and according to its will it will turn towards heaven or towards hell to light or to darkness nothing else will be its lot than what it has created through its will for itself. Spirit will be in all freedom when it has striven for this on earth, or again be banished in hard matter, which it desired on earth with all its senses. The former is a state of happiness, the latter a state of agony and inconceivable suffering renewed imprisonment through endless times in most agonizing remorse and helplessness. But God is just because in his love he made an effort through eternities to guide these beings to freedom. All aids were at their disposal, the favours of the work of redemption he acquired for the beings through his becoming man and his death on the cross; he was infinitely longsuffering and patient, but he had to leave one thing to them free will. And according to this he now must also judge men when the day has come, which ends this time of favour. Because this free will is degenerated; it is only still used for the work for the opponent, and therefore it must again be bound for endless times. The Last Judgment is the beginning and the end a new epoch begins, and the old has ended; earth life has found its conclusion for all beings, which were embodied on earth, partly in the works of creation, partly in the flesh. But a new creation comes into being, which again holds the spiritual in itself, which has not yet finished its earth way, was however close to the last embodiments. Because this spiritual has not yet been given back its free will, therefore can also not be held responsible on the day of judgement. But the entire mankind will have to answer God on the last day, and its sinfulness will be revealed, and only a small number of righteous will be able to hold their own before the eyes of God and enter into the kingdom of peace. Amen. B.D. NR. 2243.
