The saints shall judge the world

GOD'S sanctified ones,—the true disciples of Jesus,—are now hated, persecuted, judged, and condemned by the world. But the day is coming when the tables will be turned. The dead in Christ will rise first. Judgment will begin at the house of God. The saints will be judged, acquitted, and rewarded. Then the wicked, called the world, will be raised. The throne of judgment will be filled by Jesus, the man the Father hath appointed to administer judgment: his saints will surround his throne; his enemies must face them, and be judged. Awful period! With what dread, consternation, confusion, and despair, will that vast multitude be filled 1 How different will things appear then to what they do now! The upright will have dominion on that morning. Then Lazarus will sit in judgment on the rich man who refused him the crumbs which fell from his table. Paul will sit in judgment on Nero who ordered him to be beheaded. The poor slave who died in the faith of'Christ will judge his cruel oppressor who made his life bitter with hard bondage.
Saviour divine I and can it be
That I at last shall sit with thee,

            In judgment on thy foes?
Then help me patiently to hear
Their scorn and persecution here,

            When they my course oppose.
