Revelation 20:6


6 Blessed [makarios] and [kai] holy [hagios] is he that hath [echo] part [meros] in [en] the first [protos] resurrection: [anastasis] on [epi] such [touton] the second [deuteros] death [thanatos] hath [echo] no [ou] power, [exousia] but [alla] they shall be [esomai] priests [hiereus] of God [theos] and [kai] of Christ, [Christos] and [kai] shall reign [basileuo] with [meta] him [autos] a thousand [chilioi] years. [etos] KJV-Interlinear


6 Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years. NASB


All believers take part in the first resurrection, even though it comes in four separate phases.

Those who are resurrected prior to the Millennial Kingdom, will take part in the ruling of that Kingdom.

The Bible has already stated that we are a kingdom of royalty and of priests, 1 Pet. 2:9.

The second death is defined in verse 14, and that is the Lake of Fire. For believers, there will be no second death, and therefore no Lake of Fire. That is reserved for Satan and those who have followed him, his demon angels, and all people who reject Christ.

Unbelievers are not blessed, and therefore are not a part of the first resurrection. Unbelievers have nothing but the second death and the Lake of Fire to look forward to for all eternity.

The 1000 years phrase is repeated, because that is the duration of Christ's kingdom here on the earth.

It will be characterized with the universal rule of Christ, Ps 2:6-8; Dan 2:35, absolute, Ps 2:9; Isa 11:4, and righteous , Isa 11:3-5. The rule of Christ will be a time when the believing remnant of Israel is converted, Jer 30:5-8; Rom 11:26, and the nation is restored to the land God promised to Abraham, Gen 13:14-15; 15:18.

It will be a time when the Gentile nations also will worship Christ, Isa 11:9; Mic 4:2; Zech 14:16.

The millennial rule of Christ will be marked by the presence of righteousness and peace, Isa 32:17 and joy , Isa 12:3-4; 61:3,7.

The rule of Christ will be a time when the curse is lifted , Isa 11:7-9; 30:23-24; 35:1-2,7, when food will be plentiful , Joel 2:21-27, and when there will be physical health and well-being , Isa 33:24; 35:5-6, leading to long life , Isa 65:20.
