The Saints Reign with the Messiah

4 Then I saw thrones, and people seated on them who were given authority to judge.a [I] also [saw] the soulsb of those who had been beheadedc because of their testimony about Jesusd and because of God's word, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and who had not accepted the mark on their foreheads or their hands.e They came to lifef and reigned with the Messiah for 1,000 years.
