“Blessed are the gentle (meek), for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

To see with your heart is the only way you can walk with Me. You cannot see Me with your physical eyes, but you can see Me with the eyes of your heart, that is, of your spirit. You can see Me in My Word by faith, and faith also is of the heart. You believe with your heart and speak with your mouth.

Enlarge your heart and you will have more revelation, inspiration, and impartation. How do you do that? By growing in faith. And faith comes by hearing and hearing My Word concerning Christ. My anointed Word always points to Jesus as the fulfillment of all. As heir of all. The more of My Word you read, meditate, speak, and do, the fuller your heart gets with My Word and the more you see.

“God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.” Hebrews 1:1-2. Jesus is heir of ALL things. And you who have been born again are joint heirs with Jesus, “The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.” Romans 8:16-17.

And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise. Galatians 3:29. What promise? “For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith.” Romans 4:13. Heir of the world.

And as we study the “Sermon on the mount,” the next beatitude My Son spoke was “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5. It is about Kingdom living on earth, but what does it mean?

In the Greek language in which this passage was first written, the word translated “gentle” is “praus (πραΰς, πραεῖα, πραΰ),” which means mild, gentle, meek. But this word is difficult to translate, its root (pra-) means more than “meek.” In My Word, meekness is not weakness but rather refers to exercising My strength as I would, that is, demonstrating power without undue harshness. The English term “meek” often lacks the blend of gentleness (reserve) and strength.

This is the same word that Jesus uses describing Himself as gentle (praus) and humble of heart. “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.

“A bruised reed He will not break and a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not be disheartened or crushed until He has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands will wait expectantly for His law.” Isaiah 42:3-4. Gentle but strong, not disheartened or crushed until He has established justice in the earth—a most singular justice. He took your sins as His own and received the punishment due to you and released you justified.

A gentle heart is one that is not harsh, hard, or rude. It is a heart of love for those that are struggling. It is all about love again. About the kind of love I have being in your heart. It is the love that never gives up and never gives in, but never crushes or despises another. The love that carries another’s burdens and has joy in serving. Christ came to serve and not to be served. To pour out His life for you. And for this reason I highly exalted Him.

“Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:1-2.

A gentle person does not judge others or condemn them, does not despise others and reject them, but works for their salvation and to guide them to the truth no matter how hard they strike out. Jesus did not come to judge but to save. John 3:17. A gentle person turns the other cheek to insults and does not retaliate in kind. A gentle person is like My Son and I have given all things into His hands. “The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand.” John 3:35. And Jesus Himself told you, “All things that the Father has are Mine.” John 16:15. And “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Matthew 28:18. And you who are in Him are joint heirs of all things with Him. Heirs of heaven and earth.

“For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps, who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.” 1 Peter 2:21-24.

I can trust and give all into the hand of a gentle person. They are quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger. “But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; or the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.” James 1:19-20. In Jesus, I have sworn never to be angry with you again. Isaiah 54:9.

I am gentle. “The LORD descended in the cloud and stood there with Moses as he called upon the name of the LORD. Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth.” Exodus 34:5-6.

And Moses, who spent so much time with Me, I tell you that he was the meekest (gentlest) man on the earth at his time. “Now the man Moses was very humble (meek, gentle, lowly), more than any man who was on the face of the earth.” Numbers 12:3. The Old Testament as written in Hebrew and the word used there translated “humble” or “meek” is the word “anav (עָנָו),” which means meek, humble, gentle, lowly. It is the same word used in Isaiah 61 which Jesus read in the synagogue at Nazareth that states, “The Spirit of the Lord LORD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the lowly (anav: meek, humble, lowly, gentle).” Isaiah 61:1.

I had entrusted Moses with miracles and wonders that would have made many proud, taking the glory instead of giving it to Me, but he did not. And he was a good and faithful servant against great opposition and many trials. He stayed strong, but you must always stay on the watch for the devil. For he saw the day Moses’ guard was down and he took offense at the people. And that caused Moses to lose the inheritance of the promised land. The people were so rebellious to him, trying to usurp his position, talking badly about him, and then refusing to go into the promised land and then blaming him that they were still out in the desert, that his anger at them, that is, his offense and bitterness against them caused him to not consecrate Me before them but speak to them harshly and attribute the miracle of the water from the rock as coming from him. He did not show them My gentle love, which was always giving and forgiving, or portray My character as their leader. This time he was not quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger. And it cost him his inheritance. “Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly before the rock. And he said to them, “Listen now, you rebels; shall we bring forth water for you out of this rock?” Then Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came forth abundantly, and the congregation and their beasts drank. But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you have not believed Me, to treat Me as holy in the sight of the sons of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.” Numbers 20:10-12.

“Blessed are the meek, they shall inherit the earth.” They are the ones I can trust with the inheritance.

All should see your gentle spirit. “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7.

Satan and his followers will be judged, I will take dominion away from them, and I will give the earth back to those who follow Me with all their heart, “But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.” Daniel 7:26-27.

And this confirmed in Heaven where they are singing this new song before Me: “Worthy are You to take the scroll and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood from every tribe and tongue and people and nation, You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.” Revelation 5:9-19.

And confirmed on earth: “For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:17.

And by My Son, the faithful and true, who witnesses the truth to you: “from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood— and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5-6.

I love you. I am gentle with you. Be like Me and walk in love. Love is kind but love is strong. Love is confident in the face of opposition for love will win.
