# 7 of the Eight ‘Last-Days’ Judgments
<><><>7. BELIEVERS JUDGING ANGELS. Do you not know that we shall judge angels?
1 Cor. 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? (KJV) . . .
Saints shall judge angels . . . Saints shall judge angels . . . I think this has to refer to bad angels, those who decided to go with Satan when he fell. I know of NO place in the Holy Word of God that say that the holy angels will go through a trial. I think the sense here could be that Christians will be qualified to see the verdict that is pronounced on the fallen angels so they will be able to embrace and comprehend the nature of Law, and the interests of justice, as to see the correctness of their condemnation. And if they can enter into these important and eternal decisions, they certainly should be considered as quaified to determine the justice among mankind, and to settle the unimportant differences that may arise in the churcu;
Some think that this means that the saints shall in the future world be raised to a rank more elevated than even the angels in Heaven. I will not agree or disagree, because I simply do not know. In what respect that the saints will be elevated, can be only a matter of guessing. What I do know is, our eternal future will be something wonderful.
Again, I think this has to refer to evil angels, those who decided to go with Satan when he fell. I know of no place in the Holy Word of God that say that holy angels will go through a trial. I think that the sense here is, Christians will be qualified to see the verdict that is pronounced on fallen angels so they will be able to embrace and understand the nature of law, and the interests of justice, and to see the perfection of their condemnation. And if they can enter into these important and eternal decisions, they certainly should be considered as qualified to determine the justice among mankind, and to settle the unimportant differences which may arise in the church. There is an ancient tradition in ancient Jewish history about God’s people judging angels in the next life. Amy-Jill Levine, a well-regarded, traditional Jewish scholar, states: “Angels are [to be] judged by the saints, or the righteous (Dan. 4:14; 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6–15).”
Who Are These Angels? At some point in the endless past, God created the angels to serve Him as messengers and in many capacities. They were created with a free will and most of them chose to remain faithful to Him. But it seems that a massive host of the angels, maybe as many as a third of the total . . . rebelled and followed Lucifer, “Son of the Morning,” and were eventually cast out of Heaven. Isaiah 14:12-14 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (KJV) . . . Emphasis mine! Satan had BIG plans. See his 5 “I wills”.
See Isaiah 14: https://godcannotlie.org/book_of_isaiah_ch.14.htm
Jesus said He was there when this eviction took place and He “saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven” (Luke 10:18). Dear one . . . that ancient rebellion continues to this present day and will end in a final war in the heavenlies between God’s angels (led by the archangel Michael) and Lucifer’s horde (Rev. 12:7–9).
Since the Lord Himself will judge fallen angels (2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6), it is possible this means that believers will have some rule in eternity over holy angels. I will not comment on that because I do not know. Since angels are “ministering spirits” to serve the saints (Heb. 1:14), it seems quite likely that they will serve us in glory as well. Won’t it be awesome to see these holy angels who were watching over us here on Earth? I am anxious to meet mine!
Hebrews 2:5–8 seems to suggests that the Lord will transfer governing authority from angels to humans at the beginning of the Millennium. The writer quotes from Psalm 8, which talks about the future dominion of man: “Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet” (Heb. 2:8). So, angels will not govern “the world to come” . . . but instead, the angels will be in subjection to us. Our role in the judgment of angels may be more than merely a matter of administration or governance. We may also play a judicial role, when the time comes, in determining how severe the sentences of various fallen angels will be. Since we experience oppression and opposition in our lives by the enemy’s tactics, we may meet those same fallen angels (demonic agents) at this judgment and have a voice in deciding their sentence. If this is the case, it means that not all fallen angels will be punished equally, for some of the ringleaders (including Lucifer himself) will be punished more severely than others who were merely the fall guys and underlings. Some conservative scholars believe the “sons of God” (a term sometimes used for angels) in Genesis 6 were particularly evil fallen angels who were guilty of some extreme offense against God.
