Meekness has levels; Jesus went through these levels and fulfilled them all. Moses obeyed the demands of lowliness (meekness) of the earth- he was called the meekest man on Earth. He attained this state by the revelation of God's ways (Psa. 103:7). Nowadays, people are interested in God's acts, manifestations and miracles that would not make them worthy of the vocation. We would not be worthy of the Kingdom if all we want is miracles, signs and wonders. Being worthy requires a worthy walk; we have to walk worthy of the vocation (Eph. 4:1-2). Nobody walks worthy of the vocation except the revelation of Him is given to such.
Meekness is in degrees. Jesus Christ fulfilled all the requirements of meekness and lowliness for the world to come (Phil. 2:5-8). What is being revealed to us now is higher than what Moses became. God is not preparing us for the earth but for the world to come. Moses was the meekest man on earth. From this, we can begin to see the height of demand God is placing on us. Moses was not a proud man; a proud man is ambitious but Moses was not.
God told Moses His intention was to destroy the Israelites and raise a nation out of him but Moses' response was that of meekness (Exo. 32:10-13). Moses' response showed that a meek man does not seek a name. It takes a meek man to lead the people of God. A proud man will readily jump to receive that offer from God but Moses refused; rather he preferred to be called by God's name only. He was separated, his ambition did not get in the way of God's plan. He did not want a name for himself; rather he wanted God's name to be preserved, and for His purpose to come through on earth. He recognized God's programme in all. He was completely separated.
Pride in the heart gives rise to inordinate ambitions. We want to be famous because we only think about ourselves; wanting to be seen, heard and held in high esteem. But by the time God is through with us we will forget about ourselves and about being famous, because nobody will enter God's kingdom having an ambition to be famous (Jas. 4:6). It is only men who are dead to name, fame and ambition that God will grant entrance into His presence - the Holiest of all.
