Judge Jesus Christ (Revelation 20.4)

"I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years." (Revelation 20.4)✞

A Thousand Years

JudgeAt the end of the thousand years, the Devil is to be loosed, but he has not learned his lesson for he begins where he left off. He assembles the nations for the final attack on God. A last attack on Jerusalem by hostile nations is one of the standard pictures of the end times in Jewish thought. Now comes the final judgment. Judge Jesus Christ is on his great white throne which symbolizes his unapproachable purity.

Jesus Judges

Pair of Brass Weighing ScalesThe picture in the New Testament is of Jesus Christ as the judge. Jesus said in John 5.22, "Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son." In the Parable of the sheep and goats in Matthew 25.31-33 it is the Judge Jesus who is glorified. "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. In Paul's speech at Athens in Acts 17.31, Paul said that God has appointed a day in which Jesus Christ will judge the world. "For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead." According to St. Paul in 2 Timothy 4.1 "In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge." Jesus is the one who is about to judge the living and the dead.
