Looking Inward & Outward with the goggle of Faith- part 133

1. How meek we are, can always be traced to how long we can continue to do what is right; especially when someone else – who is ignorant of the wise commandments from the Word of Righteousness – keeps doing what is wrong. It is always traceable to how long we can live in the sight of the LORD; even by holding unto the commandment(s) of Faith and/or of everlasting life; especially when others are doing otherwise (Matt. 5:5,44-48; Gal. 6:9; Phil. 2:14-16)

2. A believer who is spiritually wiser or more matured than another, is one who has become meeker than such. Such a one must have excelled in denying himself of his rights, and must have been consistent in the art of losing his life (righteousness). (Jam. 3:13, 17, Matt. 18:1-4, Phil. 2:7-9)

3. Of all men born of women (save Adam), none was as great as John the Baptist; none was as meek or as close to the Kingdom of heaven like he was; none was raised to discern a man (Jesus) whose goal was to live in a way that was in conflict with men’s expectation of a King. Becoming meek is the most costly choice a man can make; by those who must be prepared to be despised by all those who haven’t despised this world. (Matt. 11:11, Jn. 1:26-30, Heb. 12:2-3)

4. All men, including Jesus’ disciples and evil spirits, couldn’t read or predict the conversations of Jesus until He was mistakenly killed, because they looked weak and foolish to the natural mind; but it was that meek and lowly demeanor that shielded Him from the reach of unreasonable men and wicked spirits. And so, all those who would look like Christ or conquer like He did, must also be prepared to be despised and misjudged by all those who aren’t meek at heart. (1 Cor. 2:7-8/1:25-28, Matt. 11:29, 1 Pet. 4:1)

5. By setting out to be groomed in the wilderness during his teenage years-and by enduring same to the end, John the Baptist actually set out to be irrelevant before all men that are strangers to the wilderness; the place where the nature of Christ is cultured into the soul, so it can relate with seasons when the gospel of everlasting life would be unveiled. Those who despise such season(s) actually despise the process that should have seen them become meek in the sight of the LORD (Mt. 3:1-4/11:7-10, 1Cor. 10:2-5, 2Pet. 1:7-11)

6. A man is as meek as his inability to depend on his strength, trust in his potentials and seek first his own interest. Doing so entails fetching a strength that is firstly kept in the feast of Charity in the doctrine that inspires us to become seasoned in esteeming the things of others above ours. And as we do, we would end up having one ambition; to lay down our lives, even until we can trap the fullness of God. (Jn. 5:19, 1Cor. 13:5, 1Cor. 9:19)

7. A man who is meek and the degree to which he is meek, can always be traced to how much he has romanced the instructions packaged in the word of Christ; and, thereby, grown from being poor (in spirit) to being contrite at heart. To that degree can he begin to tremble when the actual Word of God is being rightly divided or unveiled; in seasons when the Father would give us His commandments; which when kept, would fetch us life everlasting (2Tim. 3:16, Isa. 66:2, Jn. 12:49-50)

8. A believer who will become a man of God like Timothy was, or attain unto the meekness of Christ (that’ll help him engage with the Father), would find himself losing out in his efforts to keep his life or defend himself before certain men. Like David, the more defenseless we become, the more God can come to our rescue-and the more also we would win in warfare against wicked spirits. (1Tim. 6:11, 1Pet. 2:23, Eph. 6:11-12)

9. The strength of a man in the sight of the LORD, can be traced to how meek or harmless he is before smart and harmful men, or how vulnerable he is before the commandments of the Lord. It can be traced to how sheepishly or foolishly he can endure the instructions of righteousness that should be kept during trying seasons of life, where he will be tempted to snap or draw back from solely seeking after righteousness. (2Cor. 10:1, Gen. 45:1, Heb. 10:39)
