NOTE 1. “The meek shall inherit the earth.”It was through the desire for self-exaltation that sin entered into the world,and our first parents lost the dominion over this fair earth, their kingdom. It is through self-abnegation that Christ redeems what was lost. And He says we are to overcome as He did. Through humility and self-surrender we may become heirs with Him, when “the meek shall inherit the earth.”

The earth promised to the meek will not be like this, darkened with the shadow of death and the curse. “We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.” “There shall be no more curse; but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him.”

There is no disappointment, no sorrow, no sin; no one who shall say, I am sick; there are no burial trains, no mourning,no death, no partings, no broken hearts; but Jesus is there, peace is there.There “they shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them; for He that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall He guide them.” The Mount of Blessing, p. 17.
