Yes and maybe. But it will not be the punishment of eternal torment. (See our section on Hell, Death/Grave.) ALL are promised a resurrection. Some who have lived righteously will have more advantages and blessings in the next life. Note the contrast between two classes in the following scriptures:
“Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come forth, those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment.” John 5:28, 29 (RSV).
“And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.” Daniel 12:2
“…there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.” Acts 24:15
Hitler and non-Christians will have an opportunity in the resurrection to receive the Truth of God’s word and salvation through Christ. “Who (God) will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:4. “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:14.
The resurrection of judgment will be a period of instruction, discipline, repentance, and reformation. It will be shameful for Hitler and for many others when they confess their sins and ask forgiveness from those whom they brutalized.
Returning to Daniel 12, verse 3 states during that resurrection period, a work will be done to “turn many to righteousness.”
How will this be done? In the symbolic book of Revelation chapter 22, we have a picture of the water of life coming from the throne of God. The curse placed upon the human race will be gone (verse 3). It could not apply now when the curse is so evident.
This life-producing water results in “the healing of the nations.” People will need to be healed. Individuals such as Hitler will have an opportunity to be healed. Some will oppose Christ’s righteous, just reign. Healing will not be forced on any. Help will be freely offered. Verse 17, “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is thirsty come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”
Each individual will be responsible for their own eternal reward. “In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eats the sour grape (of sin), his teeth shall be set on edge.” Jeremiah 31:29, 30. Those who oppose righteousness will die the second death, be forever destroyed.
