Esau sold his birth-right for a pot of stew! ( Gen 25 v 29-34) "And Jacob boiled pottage. And Esau came in from the field, and he was faint. And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage . For I am faint. Therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said, “Sell me first thy birth-right.”
And Esau said, “Behold, I am about to die. And what profit shall the birth-right do to me?”
And Jacob said, “Swear to me first.”
And he sware unto him. And he sold his birth-right unto Jacob. And Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils. And he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his birth-right.
You have a birth-right!!!!
Now.....as it often happens, an angry person will blame everything that happened on every body else, but never himself.
Esau claims it was in Jacob's character to deceive people.
The truth is that only Jacob's name means deceiver.
Jacob was a reluctant participant in these events. Esau also claimed that Jacob stole his birth-right.
But, the truth is, that Esau sold it for a bowl of bean soup.
Esau also claimed that Jacob stole his blessing. However, the blessing was not his in the first place since God had said it belonged to Jacob. How can someone steal what was already his?
Satan wants your soul........you can let him have it.....you don’t have to sell it to him for a pot of stew,....how? By ignoring God and Jesus,
by default.....you have given your soul to him.
Unless you repent and accept Jesus as your personal Saviour, by default, you have accepted satan.
Whether you believe it or not, there is a heaven and there is a hell....and we go to either one.....
or the other......Biblically, that is how it is.
As we get closer to the end of the age, there is a spiritual battle ongoing for the hearts and minds of people being waged, with an intensity unlike any in history.
The Television shows are saturated with pretend Christian messages that state all kinds of false, but reasonable sounding counterfeit alternatives to salvation.
If you watch family-values oriented entertainment, you will learn that when people die, they become angels and come back and help other people. ( not true)
You can also tune into TV 'evangelists' to learn how to buy your way into heaven (by sending payments directly to them). ( also not true)
You see, we are going to see more and more of these kinds of things.....The Bible predicts it....The Word of God says...
“that ("in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires" 2 Peter 3 v 3)
I watched an interview yesterday, the young man said he was an agnostic. So the question was to him,
“Do you have any morals?” he replied that, yes he did.
Next question was, “Where do your morals come from?” He did not know.....
next question, “Do you think they might have come from a higher being, a creator?”
He thought that was a possibility.....he then decided he would believe in a “higher being, a creator” but an impersonal one.
He did not think it was wrong to steal,
to commit adultery.....
to tell lies.........up to a point!!!!
All I get from a conversation like that is..... “I will agree with you....up to a point........
but as soon as it conflicts with my desires, my wants, my likes.....I will then disagree”
He had committed all the above, by his own admission.
I hope and pray your soul belongs to Jesus, if not yet, then I ask you to repent and ask Jesus to be your Lord and Saviour.....then ask the Lord to help you to understand and read the gospel of John.
