Christ’s reign is unique (Revelation 20:4-6) for we see that those described in these verses are His priests in equality with God the Father. In the Old Testament a priest would render unto God supreme worship (Leviticus 1:9) — as would a pagan priest to their “god” (2 Kings 10:19).

G. K. Beale: In 1:6 and 5:10 saints have been said only to be “priests to God,” but now it is said that they will be “priests of God and of Christ.” This suggests that Christ is on a par with God, which is underscored elsewhere in the Apocalypse (e.g., 5:13-14; 7:9-17) (The Book of Revelation, page 1003).
