This prophecy will come true. It is not just a nice scripture. All of God's prophecies come true, and this one is just over the horizon. As people "ruin the earth" Christ Jesus is mustering his heavenly armies to rescue mankind from Satan and a wicked world (society). The "meek" and "righteous" will inherit the earth. It is what you pray for in the Lord's prayer. "as in heaven also upon earth". Matt. 6:9,10.
