Beatitude 3 – Math 5 vs 5
You are Blessed and Successful; When you are Meek (The Humble, Gentle and Lowly), for they will inherit the whole earth.
Psalm 37:11 “The meek (Humble, Gentle and Lowly) will possess the land and will live in peace and prosperity”.
Do you want to Succeed in Everything you do on earth?
Be Meek – Be Humble, Gentle and Lowly.
The Greek word for meek is Praus and is used to refer to domesticated animals.
The word does not refer to a wild, disobedient animal; it refers to a strong and powerful horse or ox that has been trained and disciplined, so that it could be under control.
The word Meek, which connotes Humility, Gentleness, Being Lowly refers to a strong person who has subjected him or her self under the Almighty God’s Control in Every area of Life.
Meekness however does not mean being weak. A meek or humble person cannot be walked over, but can be bold.
When we want to become Powerful we often ruin our chances of being humble and we can only become truly humble when we have the heart of a true servant.
Even Jesus noted that this is a Winning Quality. He had it also.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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.”
Number 12 vs 1 – 15
Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman.
And they said, “Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses?
Has he not spoken through us also?” And the LORD heard it.
Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth.
And suddenly the LORD said to Moses and to Aaron and Miriam, “Come out, you three, to the tent of meeting.” And the three of them came out.
And the LORD came down in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the tent and called Aaron and Miriam, and they both came forward.
And he said, “Hear my words: If there is a prophet among you, I the LORD make myself known to him in a vision; I speak with him in a dream.
Not so with my servant Moses. He is faithful in all my house.
With him I speak mouth to mouth, clearly, and not in riddles, and he beholds the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?”
And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them, and he departed.
When the cloud removed from over the tent, behold, Miriam was leprous, like snow. And Aaron turned toward Miriam, and behold, she was leprous.
And Aaron said to Moses, “Oh, my lord, do not punish us because we have done foolishly and have sinned.
Let her not be as one dead, whose flesh is half eaten away when he comes out of his mother’s womb.”
And Moses cried to the LORD, “O God, please heal her please.”
But the LORD said to Moses, “If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be shamed seven days? Let her be shut outside the camp seven days, and after that she may be brought in again.”
So Miriam was shut outside the camp seven days, and the people did not set out on the march till Miriam was brought in again
