Excerpt from The Millennium: Being a Series of Discourses; Illustrative of Its Nature, the Means by Which It Will Be Introduced, and the Time of Its Commencement
And as to its said that they shall with Christ during that happy period, it means, I apprehend, nothing more than what Daniel had said long before, when referring to the same state of things, ch. 27. And the king dom, and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom nu der the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. The kingdom of Christ is entirely spiritual; and during the Millennium it is to extend over the people of all lands and to 'intimate to us that his people will no longer be an oppressed and degraded people, they are here represented as presiding over the administration even of the civil at: fairs of their respective countries. And this is all, so far as we have been able to discover from the sacred Scriptures, that is intended by the martyrs' reigning with Christ during the Millennium.
