When Will They Rise?

Q. Can you please explain to me when the souls of these saints of Rev 7:9-17 will be joined to their resurrected bodies? I understand that the martyred saints of the Great Tribulation period (Rev 20:4-6) will be resurrected at the end of the tribulation period, but do the souls of Rev 7:9-17 join their resurrected bodies at that same time?

A. This is not clearly spelled out in the Bible, but I believe that after the rapture / resurrection of the church, the next and final phase of the first resurrection will take place at the 2nd Coming and will include all the tribulation martyrs (Rev. 6:9-11, Rev, 7:9-17, Rev. 20:4) and the believing dead from Old Testament times (Daniel 12:2).
