Bible: Revelation 20:4-6

20:4 Then 1  I saw thrones and seated on them were those who had been given authority to judge. 2  I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. These 3  had not worshiped the beast or his image and had refused to receive his mark on their forehead or hand. They 4  came to life 5  and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 20:5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were finished.) 6  This is the first resurrection. 20:6 Blessed and holy is the one who takes part 7  in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, 8  but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.
