Lazarus rises

“Then Martha said to Jesus: ‘Lord, if you had just been here, my brother wouldn’t have died. And yet, now I know that whatever you ask of God, He’ll give to you.’
And Jesus told her: ‘Your brother will stand again!’
Then Martha said: ‘I know that he’ll stand again in the resurrection on the Last Day.’
But Jesus said to her: ‘I am the resurrection and the life; so, whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live. And all the living who believe in me won’t remain dead through the age. Do you believe this?’
And she answered: ‘Yes Lord; I have believed that you’re the Anointed One, the Son of God, and the one who was to come into the world.'” John 11:21-27

This is from 2001translation.com. Notice it says believers will not remain dead through the age. They will live through the Millennium and beyond it. Jesus is promising Martha a resurrection after she dies.
