Writing as an evangelical Christian and follower of Jesus myself, I answer this question based on biblical interpretation. There is a large forward looking sense in the beatitudes blessings. For example, the "pure in heart" will "see God". Christians will not literally "see God" until the end of time in the new reality at the end of time. (Revelation 22:3-4 "...there will no longer be any curse, and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, ...and they will see His face....) As like "seeing God" ... the meek (humble, dutiful, obedient, teachable) may not inherit the earth, until after the curse is removed. The curse of the land, See (Gen 3:17..."cursed is the ground because of you... in toil you will eat of it..." The curse if removed in the end of time as we know it. That is: biblically speaking after the 1000 year reign of Jesus, and after the final rebellion of Satan and after the final judgement. At that time a "new heaven and new earth" are created by God. Jesus followers ihnerit the new earth. Jesus who spoke to his followers present, in Galilee in this sermon, that "the meek will inherit the earth" also said later to John, one of his followers present, in a vision where an inheritance of the earth is mentioned. John is speaking in Revelation 21:1 "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth… the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea…" Revelation 21:7 …. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be my son…" So, in the new earth that God creates at the end of time, Jesus followers will "inherit" the new earth. By:

  • Those without a lot of personal strength or power.
  • Meekness is mentioned as one of the fruits of the Spirit, one of the characteristics of Christ. and the Greek word used in the phrase means 'gentle'. It refers to those with a spirit that is free of vanity, who are willing and obedient to God's leading, and are humble and patient in affliction. It is seen as a strength, not a weakness
  • This is than a great paradox. For the expression of the meaning of this word, the person must knowingly appear weak even though this person must have great strength, simply to live a life style that supports the words meaning. A person like this is one of great things, the ignorant people will not affect this persons state of mind. This person will have a view point which allows them to be within confrontation with full control over it, believe it or not, letting the so called leader do what they want, but the meek person knows exactly what this person is thinking and too do they know what this person thinks about the meek person. The meek person will know that the so called 'leader' will think he is the leader, the meek person will know what the aggressor thinks towards himself (meek guy). The meek person may allow you to think that you won the argument, but the meek person is a genius in my opinion who has the ability to concentrate on greater things, because clever people can not understand this person, and often this would bring respect and following.
  • Originally the word meek comes from the Greek word Praus which mean gentle strength. Jesus was meek as he was the God of the Universe and was able to do anything, but he was humble about it. He was completely confident in all his power, but he wasn't arrogant about it. The meaning of the word meek has, however, been changed in current English and suggests a person who is "weak" and "indecisive," which is opposite to the meaning of praus. Overall, the general meaning of the phrase is such: Those who have much power and are self-confident with humility, will inherit the earth. My source for the greek word and meaning was

A much less Ptolemaic answer would be as follows. Those who are meek shall inherit the earth by being buried in it and/or those who are meek shall inherit the earth by becoming slaves of the Romans who are sent to work on farms.

The meek shall inherit the earth, and that means all of it - every single bit. It doesn't matter what the current laws of human beings are: Christ made everything and can do what He likes with it. However, this will only occurr in the Millennium after Christ returns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Matt 5 (v.5) Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
