Revelation 22:5, speaking of the believers in Christ, says:
They shall reign forever and ever.
However, Revelation 20:4 says:
They lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
While all of the believers will reign with Christ for eternity, to reign with Him during the 1,000 years of His millennial kingdom will be a reward given only to those believers who faithfully follow Christ in this age (Rev. 3:21; cf. 1 Cor. 9:25-27). In this episode we look at some of the portions in the New Testament that speak of this truth.
For more on this topic see our recent Note, “The Believers’ Two Reigns.”
