    QUESTION
    Revelation 5:10 – Who will we reign over?

    Revelation 5:10
    And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

    As I understand it there will be a thousand years here on earth then a new heaven and earth will come down out of heaven…and I think the old world, that is the current planet earth will be burned up..and I think the old heaven too….or something like that….

    Based on that…I have some questions about Revelation 5:10
    Quote Revelation 5:10:
    “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”
    Unquote

    My questions are…
    1. What earth is Revelation 5:10 referring to?....the old earth…or the new earth?...
    2. Who or what will we reign over?....specifically….will there be people we reign over…if so will they be the unbelievers from the old earth era?....if so why would they be in the new earth and not in hell?
    The only thing I know for sure is "we shall reign on the earth.”

    Revelation 22:5 also repeats those with Christ in the NHNE will reign for ever and ever, (all eternity).

    The selected verses prior to 22:5’s eternal reign, provide a number of characteristics of what the NHNE will be like during the eternal reign.

    What a great hope the people of God have to look forward to!

    1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away;

    3 Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them

    4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;

    and there shall be no more death,

    neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:

    for the former things are passed away.

    5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.

    7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things;

    22 And I saw no temple therein

    23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon

    there shall be no night there.

    27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth,
    but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

    3 And there shall be no more curse:

    5 And there shall be no night there;

    and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

        Carlton,
        NHNE is just an abbreviation, like you sometimes see: LOF (Lake of Fire), or GWTJ (Great White Throne Judgment), or LXX (Septuagint), or 144K (the hundred and forty four thousand), etc...
        .

            Revelation 5:10 also supplies we... or at least some...will be kings and priests...i wonder if everyone will be both a king and priest...or some will hold the office of king and others the office of priest...also I wonder if everyone in heaven will hold one or both offices...or only some...

            Revelation 5:10
            And hast made us unto our God kings and priests

              John is likely quoting Exodus 19:6 "And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel."

              imo, us being Kings shows us as the victors and overcomers over all things through Christ, and as priests, shows us in our nearness to the Lord in service and in communion; we are in His midst forevermore, He is our God and we are His people; and we serve Him day and night forevermore; in a similar manner of how priests serve the Lord in His temple,in the earthly shadow and pattern; but for us then, it will be the final realized fulfillment of the pattern of Kings and priests.

                Revelation 5:10 is john repeating the words of a song sung by the four beasts and/or the twenty four elders.
