Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (Matt.5:4)
Blessed are those who are humble, those who are down to earth, those who don’t think more highly of themselves than they ought to. That’s what it means to be meek. You see when we look at Jesus’ example of meekness; He was a man that endured pain and injury with patience and without resentment. He was able to do that because through all he went through He knew that God was ultimately in charge of his life, thus He could face anything without walking in resentment at all. We often look at meekness as a weakness but if we are looking at it from the perspective of who Jesus was then meekness takes on a very different tone. And it is those who are truly meek that will inherit the earth.
God Bless You

“Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted (Matt 5:4)”
Often when we think of this passage of scripture we think of it from the perspective of someone who mourns for the lost of a loved one. However, the believer should be mourning for the unsaved as well. We should be mourning (feeling grief or sorrow) for those who have not come to know Jesus as their Lord and savior. We should be mourning for those who have not experienced the love of God from the Christian perspective.
The truth is saints, if we who are believers don’t mourn for the unsaved, who will? Those that mourn for a wicked and unbelieving generation will be careful to monitor the way they live. They will be sure to be a Godly example for the unsaved generation, they will be sure to say something about Jesus on a regular basis to those who don’t him. Jesus said blessed (happy) are they that mourn for they shall be comforted. They will be comforted by him.
God Bless You

If you have received Christ as Lord and savior you are blessed. He said as much in His Beatitudes Message on the Sermon on the Mount”. He shares with the multitudes this new doctrine never heard before by the heart of man which changes the whole region during his time and still reverberates in the earth today. He begins by saying “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven (Matt 5:3)”.
This is not about those who are physically poor, but it’s more about those who are spiritually poor or malnourished. Thus, these are they who recognize that their inner man is lacking the presence, power and anointing of God. Those who understand that they need healing and deliverance in their spirit and it only comes by way of the power of God; those who have acknowledged their sin and therefore their dependence upon God to save them. It is these believers that will receive the Kingdom of Heaven.
God Bless You
