The Beatitudes of Jesus (# 3)


Beatitude #3- “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth” (from Matthew 5:5)

The humble, the meek, the gentle shall inherit the earth. Though it is the proud and strong and rich that rule the earth now, when His kingdom comes and His will is done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10), then the meek shall rule alongside of Him who was gentle and humble of heart, Jesus Christ (Matthew 11:29). The gentle shall rule with Christ and inherit jurisdiction of both the present earth during the millennial reign of Christ, and also the new earth for all eternity. And thus shall it always be, for His glory! This is the way of the Lord, so topsy-turvy to the way of the world. That is why Jesus said His kingdom was “not of this world” (and further explaining His disciples gentle and peaceable ways) when He answered Pilate as to His authority. Praise God for His marvelous ways and His deep, deep wisdom which confounds the wise of this age! See also Revelation 20:4-6; 21;5-8
