Q. I love your site! I understand all the coming judgments, such as the Bema Seat, Great White Throne etc. But I cannot seem to find how the Tribulation Saints, the saints that are martyred in the last 3 1/2 years, are judged? Or are they? Thank you for your help.
A. From my understanding, the Bible doesn’t mention any additional judgment, positive or negative, for the Tribulation Martyrs. I guess the Lord feels that sacrificing their lives for their faith is enough.
Rev. 20:4 says they will be resurrected at the time of the 2nd Coming and will reign with Christ for one thousand years.
Since they are called priests (Rev. 20:6) but not kings, I assume they will serve in some kind of a subordinate role to the Church, similar to the earlier martyrs of Rev. 7:9-17 who will serve the Lord day and night in His temple but are never called kings or priests. Only the church is described as being both kings and priests (Rev. 1:6, 5:10).
