The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth

This is a statement which is familiar to many. But have you ever wondered who are "the meek" and when will this promise of "inheriting the earth" be fulfilled.

May I invite you to get your bible and have a look at the verses that will follow which not only answer the questions posed but also provides us with a wonderful hope for the future.

First we will have a look at the prospect of a wonderful future

Scripture

Isaiah 45 vs 18

Explanation

God the Former and Creator made this beautiful earth to be inhabited or lived on. T

The truthfulness of this verse is confirmed in various other scriptures in the bible as well. Lets examine one of those scriptures.

Scripture

Genesis 1 verse 28

Explanation

When GOD created the first human couple it was here on the earth that they were blessed and commissioned to "be fruitful" or to have a family. And then Adam and Eves children would grow up to be blessed with children and so forth and so on.

So they were created in beautiful surroundings here on the earth and they were blessed by god to have a family.

So what does this have to do with the Meek and who are they?

Meek means "teachable, humble, docile." So a meek person is one who will humbly accept and conform to GODS standards. It is those who GOD deems as meek who will inherit the earth.

Scripture

Psalm 37 vs 11

Explanation

This verse speaks about the time when the "meek will have possession of the earth."

So we can be confident that the meek will inherit and possess the earth.

So when will this occur?

Lets look again to the scriptures for the answer to this question.

Scripture

Psalm 37 vs 10

Explanation

This scripture speaks about the time when violence earth wide will no longer exist.

How comforting to know that the meek will be able to enjoy and live on the earth in security and peace, when the violence and badness on the earth is ended. And no, no government or world power is going to bring about better conditions. This promise is from GOD.

So when will this occur?

When Gods Kingdom(Government) puts an end to all existing governments on the globe. The scriptural basis for this is:

Scripture

Daniel 2 verse 44

Setting

The book of Daniel is a book which clearly prophesied the March of the World Powers or Governments. And true to this book, the rising and fall of these governments on a global scale were not only documented thousands of years in advance but occurred down to the last detail.

Explanation

The scripture in question in Daniel 2 furnishes us with the promise, that GODS kingdom government will destroy every existing governmental authority on earth today. And this will be replaced with a ruler ship which is governed by love and the interests of the people and those deemed as the meek.

In Summary

It is so exciting to know that those who are Meek, will inherit an earth that they will possess forever.

The wicked will no longer exist, so conditions will be peaceful and secure.

And more importantly the ruling governments today, who have never been able to improve living conditions nor bring about peace world wide, will be totally destroyed. And this will be replaced by the ruling authority who CAN bring about better living conditions and standards, which is gods own kingdom and governmental arrangement.

And then "the meek shall inherit the earth" will be fulfilled.


Street Talk

Hi John! 1)God is the judge as to who he views as meek and those who are not! 2)The scriptures also talk about Gods Kingdom(new heavenly governmental arrangement). This Kingdom according to Revelation 5 verse 10 confirms that this is a privileged position made up of "priests to our god who will rule as kings over the earth." This selected group is made up of 144000 which is highlighted in Revelation 7 verse 4. 3)So this new heavenly government or Gods Kingdom, has already been created. When God comes up against the political and religious organizations earth wide at Armaggeddon will then confirm, that those selected to be part of this group off 144000 is complete. 4)And those who die from now until then, have the beautiful hope of the resurrection, which is highlighted in John 5 verse 28+29 where Jesus promised that "All those in the Memorial Tombs will hear his voice and come out." Love the questions and appreciated your comment. Take care

What will become of those who are not meek? Who will rule this new governmental arrangement? What if you die before this government is created?
