4 [a]And I saw [b][c]seats: and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them, and I saw the souls of them that were [d]beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which [e]did not worship the beast, neither his image, neither had taken his mark upon their foreheads or on their hands: and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Revelation 20:4A description of the common state of the Church of Christ in earth in that space of a thousand years, for which the devil was in bonds: in which first the authority, life, and common honor of the godly, is declared, verse 4. Secondly, newness of life is preached unto others by the Gospel, after that space, verse 5. Finally, he concludeth with promises, verse 6.
Revelation 20:4For judgment was committed to them, as to members joined to the head, not [that] Christ’s office was given over [to] them.
Revelation 20:4This was a type of the authority of the good and faithful servants of God in the Church, taken from the manner of men.
