Sorry Sabrina if I came across as rude towards you. It wasn?t my intention.
No, absolutely not! You said nothing to offend me. I enjoyed replying to your post.
Being resurrected to die again could be interpreted as being cut off from the "genetic sin" group and having death resurfacing again like an intrinsic fault of human beings.
I think the answer may lie with the legalistic areas of sin and death that Paul was speaking of rather than just the dying of the body. In other words, if the Christ died for our sins and if his sacrifice, the payment of the ransom, is to be applied to each individual (either living or dead) when he arrives then technically until he arrives those who in Bible times died and were resurrected, while having paid for their sins to be sure, cannot yet have life as Adam had life. (sorry for long sentence)
Those that were blessed with a resurrection in Bible times were not punished because they died again but rather they were given a new lease on the life they had. It seems that from God's standpoint he could not yet apply the ransom sacrifice because the time for his Son to return and to release the dead and the living from the curse of death upon Adam had not yet arrived.
You know, when you look up at the heavens and see the constellations and the movements of the planets etc., and the dance they all make, all perfectly timed, it's all like a huge time piece. A time piece that runs so well mankind can predict the meteor showers, the eclipses, the occultations and so on. God is a timekeeper, a watch maker of cosmic proportions.
He has set a time for the resurrection and a time for the return of his Son. He has set a time for all things. Not because he likes to make us wait but because he knows that it will take time to make it right.
