The Meek Being Blessed
Matt 5:5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Rev 11:15 …The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever.
Today the earth is a worldly kingdom under the rule of Satan. But the day is coming when the Lord, the King, will regain this world. The world spoken of in Revelation 11:15 is the earth in verse 5.
To be meek does not mean simply to be gentle, humble, and submissive. To be meek means not to resist the world’s opposition, but to suffer it willingly. To be meek means not to fight or to resist. If we are meek, willing to suffer the world’s opposition in this age, we shall inherit the earth in the coming age, as revealed in Hebrews 2:5-8 and Luke 19:17, 19.
Today, those who fight are those who gain the land. If you do not fight, you will not receive any territory. This is the reason there are so many wars. Nations wage war with one another to gain more territory for themselves. The human way is to obtain the land by fighting for it, but the way of the kingdom of the heavens is to gain it by being meek. There is no need to fight, but there is the need to be meek.
When the Lord Jesus comes back, He will regain the earth. However, when He was arrested, tried, and crucified at Golgotha, He was meek. As He was nailed to the cross, He did not resist. In every way He was meek, meek to the very end. Eventually, the earth will be gained not by the fighting ones, but by the meek ones.
