1 Corinthians 6:1-2 – 1 If any of you has a dispute with another, dare he take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the saints? 2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?
In the sue happy world we live in we need to remember this; the world is bent on greed and injustice. It’s never their fault but always that of someone else. We can’t as believers be taking other believers to have disputes being decided by the unbelievers. We need to work together for resolution and find other believers to help hash it out. The only time it doesn’t usually work out is when a believer doesn’t want to act like one.
The Lord indicates that overcomers will sit with Him at His throne. He also indicates at least some will help judge and rule the nations.
Revelation 2:26-29 – 26 To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— 27 ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery’-just as I have received authority from my Father. 28 I will also give him the morning star. 29 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Revelation 3:21- 21 To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.
Matthew 19:28 – 28 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Luke 22:28-30 – 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials. 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
The Lord has indicated many times that there are those who will share on His throne. We are heirs and have to remember that and seek our Lord whole-heartedly.
