User-Posted Comments on Psalms 37:11

A Word from Yeshua HaMashiach: The Meek shall inherit the earth. In a poem of encouragement, David foretold of a time when the humble will be blessed and the wicked will not be. A thousand years later, Yeshua spoke similar words during His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:5). In Yeshua's case, He wasn't so much encouraging as teaching: this is a reality in YHWH's Kingdom. Those who are humble enough to worship Elohim will, in fact, inherit the earth. It is worth noting that meekness is not synonymous with weakness. The meekness Yeshua spoke of is a gentleness of spirit that is only possible by the immense strength of the Ruach HaKodesh. As it is clear, the Ruach HaKodesh guides born again believers into all truth and shows them things to come (John 16:13).
Psalm 37:11-13 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. Adonai shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming. I don't think it's a coincidence, that after much prayer, Yeshua HaMashiach opened me to this page, and when reading Psalm 37, He tapped me on my right shoulder to confirm verses 11-13. Shalom.
