In order to know what the Millennial Kingdom will look like, it is critical to understand that the way Jesus does power is not the way the world does it! The world uses power, money, and war to promote its agenda. Look at the history of past ruling nations. Jesus says, “not in my kingdom!” In His kingdom, the rulers become the servants.
“You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be servants of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:42-45
Jesus will select from the Saints those that have been true servants of His in this life to select and supervise the rulers of nations in His Millennial Kingdom. It will not be a democracy, it is a Kingdom. In the Millennium, His Kingdom will have come just have believers have prayed for ever since Jesus taught us to pray.
“Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:9-10
Denying oneself, following Jesus, and loving others by living cross-bearing lives and suffering are interrelated. The life that Jesus calls us to is not easy. Suffering will come. Ask the Lord for help so that you may overcome prejudice, hatred, selfishness, pride, and whatever stands in the way of living a cross-bearing life of service for the sake of others. Know that your role in His Millennilal Kingdom will be determined by how you serve Him in this life.
