To understand how Jesus and the Saints will rule and reign in the Millennium, we need to look at how God created the universe in the beginning and how He related with His creation.

God could have named the animals just as He called the light “day” and the darkness “night,” but instead, He allowed Adam to steward creation by the act of naming the animals.

The creator of the entire universe and everything in it not only allows His own creation to have creative naming power over the animals, but He brings the animals to him. In this way, Adam’s creativity mirrors or images God’s creativity; God demonstrates how He wants Adam to tend the garden, the animals, and every living creature with authority. And by naming the animals, Adam has a personal relationship with them. He knows them by name, just as God knows His people by name.

God is about relationships and central to life in the Millennium will be Jesus’ commandment.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27

With regard to work, God could have erected the tabernacle—His own dwelling place among the Israelites in the wilderness—by Himself, but instead, He equips His people to do it beautifully and with excellence.

God calls Bezalel, the son of Uri, by name and “filled him with the Spirit of God, with ability and intelligence, with knowledge and all craftsmanship,” along with Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, in order that they could create all of the needed items for the tabernacle. Go to Exodus 31 for their call to craftsmanship and Exodus 36–39 to see what they made.

New technology will be wisely used in the Millennium. In fact. I believe Nuclear Fusion for energy production will be perfected as will many other technologies that are even unknown today. Moreover, resurrected Saints, such as Isaac Newton and Johannes Kepler, will probably be in charge of ensuring these new technologies are only used for good. The temptation to use powerful new technologies for evil will still exist as humans will still be fundamentally depraved because of their sinful nature. This is why the Bible repeatedly tells us that in the Millennium, Jesus and the Saints will rule with a rod of iron.

The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father.” Revelation 2:27

She (Mary) gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron,” Revelation 12:5

From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron.Revelation 19:15
