And I pray that The LORD will perfect and complete that which concerns me, Amen.

My testimony will be spoken to The praise of God, Amen.

Our Christian walk is about surrendering ourselves to The will of God as He perfects us by making us more and more like Him. Perfection is a gradual process that we will only fully come into when we leave this Earth and join God in Heaven where by God’s AWESOME grace we will be co-heirs with Christ Jesus, Amen.

Do you not know we shall judge angels?

In his letter to the church in Corinth, the apostle Paul tells us that believers will not only judge the world but also judge angels: “Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world … Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life” (1 Corinthians 6:2-3). Scripture teaches that the fallen angels will be judged by God (Isaiah 24:21-222 Peter 2:4Jude 1:6Revelation 21:10). But what does Paul mean when he says the saints will also judge angels?

What we can surmise from this 1 Corinthians passage is that we, as God’s children, will be given a higher position than the angels. We’re not only created in God’s image but redeemed by Christ (Galatians 3:131 Peter 2:9Luke 1:68Ephesians 1:7). Angels are not created in God’s image and are not redeemed by Christ (Hebrews 1:142:16). Also, God sends His angels to serve His saints, i.e., those who are to inherit eternal life (Hebrews 1:14; see also Psalm 34:7Psalm 91:11).

Additionally, we know that the Greek word for “judge,” krino, also means “to rule or govern.” This strongly implies that we will have authority over the holy angels, for they have no sin for which to be “judged” in the sense of “condemned.” Most likely, the meaning of this passage is that believers in heaven will take part in the judgment of the fallen angels and exercise some authority over the holy angels. Christ has been exalted above all the angels (see Ephesians 1:20-23), and it seems reasonable that those who are in Him and made in His likeness (Romans 8:291 Corinthians 15:49Ephesians 4:241 John 3:2) will share in His authority, including His authority over the angels (Matthew 19:282 Timothy 2:12Revelation 20:4).

And we pray:

Dear God, I thank You that You are constantly at work in me and my life. Lord, I avail myself to Your ways because I know that they are higher than my own and they are what is best for me. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
