  • Sacha on 1 John 4:19
    Can any one help me with this please ? If Christians go to heaven after death why does Jesus say the meek shall inherit the earth ? Any ideas any one ? Thankyou .

    I see that the "meek inheriting the Earth", is the Lord describing the type of spirit & attitude of a 'meek' person towards God & man. The 'meek' person in himself cannot inherit the Earth, nor can he be acceptable to God without the intervention of the Cross in his life. Yet, that 'meek' disposition must be evident in all of God's children, as one so endued by the Holy Spirit.

    Dear Sacha on 1 John 4:19 "We LOVE Him because He First LOVED us." Christians who are worthy do go to Heaven after death. And the Meek (the Teachable) will inherit the Earth right here and right now, and in the Hereafter. We pray this has helped you in some way. Peace.

    Meekness is a sense of being open to the words of scripture and an attitude not found in the world. We are In the world but not of it, is the condition one must become to the nature found in a meek person. Other attributes of humility, thankfulness, giving, are just some of what a meek person might be. The bible will convert the natural to the spiritual in a person, most assuredly, the words of Christ. He told people the way it was and is, yet being meek in the process. Meekness is a ready state of mind to here the word of God! Even so, some of us will always have a cross to bear!
