Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
“Meek” is commonly believed to demonstrate weakness, passivity – a word to describe someone who never gets angry, who will put up with anything (i.e. a doormat). However, the original Greek meaning of this word refers to the breaking in of a horse – a very powerful animal. When applied to people, it means using their power in a focused, disciplined manner. In the Biblical narrative, it is about holding people accountable at the right time, in the right way – this usually involves the expression of anger.
Since my interpretation of the Bible is an esoteric one, my explanation of the above Biblical quote is about to get deep. Matthew is the Apostle that represents the zodiac sign of Capricorn (for more on the zodiac sign correspondences to the Apostles, go here). Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn – the planet that rules the earthly domain and is responsible for holding people accountable for their actions (amongst other things). Saturn is the opposite of a snowflake since a wuss would be incapable of meting out Divine Justice. Hence, the common understanding of the word “meek” is incompatible with Saturn’s role in the Cosmos.
Jesus Christ represents the Sun – the soul of individuals, their will, or the expression of their life force. When Jesus (the Sun) speaks that sentence in the gospel of Matthew (Capricorn), he means that those who embody meekness (Saturnian qualities), will take over (lead) the world. (For more on Saturn, I send you here.)
Jesus expressed his Saturnian/meek side in the following Biblical passages:
46 “It is written,” he said to them, “ ‘My house will be a house of prayer’; but you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’”
