Question
Morning Sir
is a special resurrection of the wicked prior to the second coming a biblical doctrine?

Answer
Esso,

Thank you for your question.

A special resurrection for those who "pierced" Jesus (Rev. 1:7) so they will be able to see Jesus coming in the clouds at His return to earth is one solution to the dilemma of the general resurrection of the wicked being at the close of the millennium (Rev. 20:5). Another solution is to interpret Revelation 1:7 as spanning a thousand years to allow it to cover the two resurrections described in Revelation 20.
