    Don't you realize that we will judge angels? So you should surely be able to resolve ordinary disputes in this life. Paul writes in 1 Cor. 6:3: "Don't you realize that we will judge angels? So you should surely be able to resolve ordinary disputes in this life?"

    Does this mean that we will have the important job of judging angels in heaven, or is this something of a mystery and only a mere metaphor for something else?

    1 Corinthians 6:3

    Know ye not that we shall judge angels
    Meaning not the ministers of the Gospel, and pastors of churches, called "angels", ( Revelation 1:20 ) whose doctrines are examined, tried, and judged by the saints, according to the word of God; nor the good angels, who, were it possible that they could, or should publish a Gospel contrary to what has been preached by the apostle, would be contradicted, condemned, and accursed by him, see ( Galatians 1:8 Galatians 1:9 ) but the evil angels, the devil and his angels: and this is to be understood not of their future final judgment and condemnation at the last day, when saints will subscribe unto, and approve of the sentence pronounced upon them, and will triumph over them in their destruction; but of the judgment of them, and of their ejection out of the Gentile world, out of their oracles, idols, and idol temples, to which Christ refers, ( John 12:31 ) and calls the judgment of this world, and the casting out of the prince of it by the ministry of his apostles; and which was now already begun, and ere long would be fully accomplished: accordingly the Syriac version renders it, "know ye not (Nnynyd akalmld) , that we are about to judge angels?" and the Arabic, "know ye not that we judge angels?" from whence the apostle infers very justly. John Gill Commentaries.
