Question: How can the dead rise from their graves if they're already in heaven?

Response: It is the bodies that are dead, not the souls and spirits. Paul declares that at death the believers are "absent from the body... present with the Lord" (2 Cor:5:8). The dead bodies of those who "sleep in Jesus" [i.e., whose bodies "sleep" in the grave but whose souls and spirits are in heaven] will rise to be reunited in immortality with the souls and spirits that return with the Lord from heaven (1 Thes:4:14-16).
