The Inheritance in the Earth

One of the lessons of the Bible that has been impossible for people to learn is regarding the plot of land that every man seeks for himself. Abraham was concerned about having a place to bury Sarah. He prayed about it, and he thought his prayers were answered. I don't think he understood that a place to be buried in the earth is not what Maryah had in mind for His Children. It was a huge lesson, a lesson that takes a lifetime to learn, and most people go to their graves without understanding it. Eashoa said, "... and their graves are with us to this day." He was talking of those people who sought the earth, and those people who had "... received their recompense" in this world. He also said, "Let the dead bury their dead" -- meaning: let those people concerned with the life and death of this world to go on about their burial ceremonies and their rituals.

Eashoa was always talking about the Kingdom of Heaven, not the kingdom of this world. One of his major lessons was for his followers to travel light and spread the Gospel; He did not want them to be concerned with the things of the world. He said that your Father in Heaven knows what you need, and He supplies it to you in season. He said it to them many times.

Eashoa wanted his followers to understand that the wars that people had fought were only a lesson about the futility of fighting for a plot of land. The lesson was there in the Scriptures for the sake of having Eashoa clarify it for them. The disciples asked Eashoa, "Why was this man born blind; was it his parents had sinned or was it that he had sinned?" Eashoa said, "Neither, it was so that the Father would be glorified." In other words, the blindness and the needs of people are only there so that Eashoa would provide the answer.

Another thing people have to understand is that Allaha (God) was not going to come down to earth in the personage of the Creator; He was going to come to the world as a human being, in the personage of His Son. That Eashoa was the Milta (Manifestation) of the Father should be understood in the context of physical reality: we are human beings, creatures of this earth; we can't understand what it is to be God. We can understand what it is to be a creation of Allaha, and furthermore we can understand what it is like to be children; but only by accepting Eashoa Msheekha. This is what it means to accept Him. We have to have the humility to understand his divinity and his supremacy and his love for humanity.
