> Are you referring to a spacific resurrection?

Yes Lou, your own. You will be Lou for eternity Lou.

Christ opened the grave. There was no resurrection before the atonement. Had it not been so, we would have remained in the grave forever. As in Adam all men die, as in Christ all are made alive. If Adam and Eve had not become mortal they would never have died, and we would not have been born. It is all part of God's plan, named the "Plan of Salvation"

We have laws on earth that must be obeyed. Likewise, in heaven there are laws. Why would heaven be a place of confusion and no law? It is a place of order, Definition of order, "A place for everything and everything in its place" Perfect order. Perfect Law. Perfect Ordinances.

We know the ordinances were in effect from the beginning of time. Abel talked with God and knew the ordinances, or why was he offering sacrifice? The ordinance of sacrifice was in similitude of the sacrifice of the Redeemer. It was to remind the people that Christ would come.

In the beginning of time, Lucifer was trying to destroy all righteousness. Greed, jealousy, and desire for power got the best of Cain. What's so different today?

How do we know that Christ opened the graves? Because there were many witnesses, and their accounts have been preserved by the gift and power of God.

Why were baptisms preformed for the dead, if the dead raise not at all?

People of my faith believe that nearly all of the references to Christ's first advent were taken out of the Old writings, except for the words of Isaiah. Great are the words of Isaiah, it's all there if you can find it. Christ quoted isaiah more than any other OT Prophet.

You asked which resurrection I was referring to, and I hope I have answered this to your satisfaction, if not, to sum it up, the resurrection I am referring to is your own, and it is only made possible by and through Jesus Christ. You have always been and will always be you. One body, from spirit, to mortal, to immortal. You will never be anything other. You cannot come back as a frog, or as a princess, You are male, will always be male, but you keep on learning and progressing. Forever.
There is no end to learning.......One last ref. "If You could high to Kolob" 284
