The Sabbath of time will be the grandest of all the millenniums and man will produce more good works, more enlightened thought, more beautiful edifices, grand cities, magnificent artworks and splendid music than we ever dreamed possible. Nothing our minds can imagine will compare with the beauty and glory that await the faithful during the great Day of the Lord.
As the divine Spirit rains down upon the land and its inhabitant, knowledge will begin to flood the earth, including those mysteries that were hidden from the foundation of the world. Things both past, present and future, will be made known to the millennial man and woman and there will be nothing that will be withheld from their eyes. The knowledge of the world and of the entire universe will be laid out before them in all their splendor.
The earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. Wherefore, the things of all nations shall be made known; yea, all things shall be made known unto the children of men. There is nothing which is secret save it shall be revealed; there is no work of darkness save it shall be made manifest in the light; and there is nothing which is sealed upon the earth save it shall be loosed. Therefore, all things which have been revealed unto the children of men shall at that day be revealed. (2 Nephi 30:15-18.)
The Millennium will not be a time of leisure or idleness, for there will be much work to do. There will be farming and merchandising. Homes and cities must be built, temples erected and temple work attended to. Fortunately, man will not weary of his work and responsibilities as the quickened man will no longer know the aches and pains of mortality, or succumb to illness or disease. He will not be crippled or become depressed or mentally anguished, nor will he will suffer the debilitating effects of old age. What wonderful things we could accomplish in this life if the handicaps of the flesh did not fetter us or keep us down. Nonetheless, this life is a time and place for learning and of being tested and tried.
All of our experiences, whether good or bad, are for our ultimate benefit. Those so blessed to be born during the Millennium will not have to pass through the portals of pain and despair, but regardless, they too must work out their salvation. They must grow step by step – gaining knowledge precept upon precept just as mortal man did and must use their agency to do good works and must labor for their support and for that of their families. They must search for and find mates, marry and raise up righteous children to the Lord. They must worship and pray and search the scriptures for the meaning of life. They must learn to draw upon the powers of heaven and seek revelation from on high. They must help in the work of salvation for their kindred dead and must help in the work of reconciliation for the entire human family, for all things must be in order. Families must be sealed, partners married, ordinances recorded in such a way that they coincide with the records of heaven. A great work must be done, a work that will take a millennium to complete and the millennial family must be the means of its completion.
Those who live during the Sabbath of time will not be idle or pampered or living lives of perpetual luxury but will be united in love and purpose. They will work together to complete the work of sealing the entire human family together so that the Son can present the finished work to his Father when the time allotted is finished. There will be more work to do during the millennium than in all past dispensations combined. It will be a time of temple work, genealogy work and of the reconciling of all things.
With the earth restored to its paradisiacal glory, the Savior, along with numerous resurrected Saints, such as Adam, Enoch, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Lehi, Nephi, Mormon and Moroni and countless others who were with Him at His Coming will descend with Him to usher in the Millennium. How wonderful it will be to mingle with the righteous Saints from all dispensations of time—those who remained faithful to their covenants and thus merited a place in the Kingdom of God.
