    Genesis 4:3-24,

    Note Genesis 4:4 "._..._respect unto Abel & his offering:"

    Genesis 4:5 "But unto Cain & his offering._._."

    Genesis 4:7

    It seems to clearly say it was the person, giving it & how. There are other times GOD didn't accept bad attitudes, behavior nor their sacrifices, or offerings. Hosea 8:13, Jeremiah, Amos 5:22, Malachi 1:10,

    Notice Isaiah 58, Proverbs 21:3, Psalms 19:14, Proverbs 21:3,

    Proverbs 18:5,

    Isn't it interesting how when Jesus was helping people, healing & teaching, His brothers in the Temple also were likewise ready to kill Jesus making Jesus sacrifice acceptable to GOD & not their own? Mark 12, Hebrews 12,

    Romans 12:1,2, Ephesians 5:1-21, 1Peter 2:5,20,

    Hopefully these are helpful

    Genesis 27:41,

    Esau was also called Edom, Genesis 36:1, please read: Obadiah 1, whole chapter

    Note: Obadiah 1:10-14 "For the violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off forever. In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou was one of them. But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress. Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity; Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossways, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress."

    Obadiah 1:6, Malachi 1, Deuteronomy 2:22, Jeremiah 49:7-22, Judges 11:17, 1Kings 11:14-25, Ezekiel 25:12-14,

    Romans 9:13-15,

    Hopefully these are helpful also, towards more understanding of why GOD said Esau HE hated.

  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 9
    Hi James. I know, that word 'hate' can be very pointed & ugly, especially when seen in the Scriptures. We need to realize that 'hate' as seen here & other places, can have several meanings. The word in Greek is 'miseo', & of course, it does mean 'to hate' but also can have other meanings according to application, i.e. 'to detest, to love less, to esteem less'. So, it's not always an ugly uncontrolled emotion that is shown. You can think of Luke 14:26, "If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." Did the Lord mean to say that we are to feel such hatred for our family just so that we can truly follow Him? Or did He mean that we need to esteem Him more, putting Him first in everything even to giving our family second place?

    And then we have another conundrum as seen in Isaiah 45:7: "I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things." I share this verse simply to demonstrate the usage & understanding of languages. In Isaiah, we read of two strange phenomena: God creating darkness & creating evil. Can a God Who is altogether Light & altogether Holy & Good create such things? Some might say, yes, because He is God. Rather we should consider that in light of Who God is, maybe the creation of darkness, is actually God removing His Light. Maybe the creation of evil, is God removing His Peace. Darkness is always the default just as is Evil the present default in the World. We enjoy both physical & spiritual Light because of God's intervention through Christ ( Colossians 1:16,17; John 8:12) - we also enjoy great quietness & enjoyment of life because God by His Spirit is holding back the full onslaught of evil ( 2 Thessalonians 2:7).

    Therefore Romans 9:13 & Malachi 1:2,3 that speak of 'hating Esau', can only mean that Esau was hated (rejected) in God's Plan, just as Jacob was loved (accepted).

    Hi James.

    I would like to suggest a possibility here concerning this text.

    The text reads 'As it is written " I would like to go to where this phrase was originally drawn from and get the context and tie the two together.

    Malachi 1:1-3. The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.

    I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? WAS NOT ESAU JACOB'S BROTHER? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,

    And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

    God is saying by my feelings and actions shown towards Esau, and he's jacobs brother "Suggesting equal grounds when Israel was Jacob" SHOULD be Proof I Love Jacob. IF THIS HATE WAS CAUSED BY SOMETHING ESAU DID THERE WOULD BE NO EVIDENCE ON DISPLAY HERE OF THE LOVE FOR JACOB.

    Atleast consider that for a moment and go back to Romans 9. and let's take it from verse 11 on down to verse 14.

    Romans 9:11-14. (FOR THE CHILDREN BEING NOT YET BORN, NEITHER HAVING DONE ANY GOOD OR EVIL,

    ((( that the purpose of God according to election might stand, )not of works, but of him that calleth;)))!!

    It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.

    As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

    What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.

    Here he Emphasizes THAT THE PURPOSE OF GOD ACCORDING TO ELECTION MIGHT STAND, NOT OF WORKS, BUT OF HIM THAT CALLETH;)

    I believe the focus here is Jacob represents Gods Grace. Esau represents the will of the flesh " For lack of better terms "

    Perhaps Hate here is used as a term for Comparison as Brother Jesse shared in an earlier post.

    Just a suggestion, God bless.

    The King James and others interpreted Malachi 1:11 in the future trend. The correct interpretation is on the present trend. Who then is God referring to? Who is worshipping properly, accepted by God, in contrast with the Jews of that time?

  • Virginia ulrich on Romans 12
    Yes, since John 8:33 Esau now resides at the holy city, and acknowledges that they are Esau, and, are responsible for the wars, plagues, sacrifice and torture of many millions of children, we have a problem, as also explained at Malachi 1:3-4.

    Esau, and Canaanites of pollution with fallen angel mating, plus those Masons and others who take imprecatory secret oaths to Satan, are spreading great hated and lies against The Creator, King of Heaven and earth, and, His Savior Son, who by His Blood Redeems us from eternal death if we truly love Him to live according to His Spirit and His Word. Now as Obadiah, Isaiah 63, tells us, as well as John 8:33-44, Matthew 23, Rev. 2 and 3 of the Synagogue of Satan. They have even polluted all institutions on the earth. They are also now destroying all creation, and have brought on the Mark of the Beast of Rev. 13:16, that tracks people by a matrix of computers over all the earth, and changes the DNA of our bodies that house the temple of our Savior and His Holy Spirit IF we choose the jab to be owned by Satan, instead. People are taking that Beast ownership Mark, which can not be undone.

    We have not called on The Holy Names that Never changes since the beginning. See Palms 91, daniel 9:19, Exodus 9:16, Matthew 23:39 in the institutions of the earth! Like the 10 virgins, we need to call on Our Father in Heaven, and Hallow His Name, and forgive our debtors as we want to be forgiven, and, pray for enough Holy Spirit in our lamps.

    At Declaration of Independence, last paragraph, we find THE CREATOR is our Judge! At Deuteronomy 17:8, hard matters are brought to Him for Judgement. Vengeance belongs to Him. He owns everything. Psalms 24. At Zephaniah 3, He Judges between His people and Satan. Isaiah 66, Hosiah 5:15 we find examples of The Creator's judgment. At Joel 3, we find The Creator gathering the people's of the earth of war, together for a feast of the condemned flesh for the predator animals of the earth.

  • Jesse - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 11:14
    (Page 2:)

    But God says "Jacob have I loved, and Esau I have hated." It's taken from Malachi 1:2-3. If you go back to Malachi Chapter 1, you find out that Jacob and Esau are associated with Israel and Edom.

    So it wasn't about choosing one person over another or loving one person more than the other. He was choosing Israel over Edom. He wasn't choosing for salvation. Even Ishmael, when he was asked to leave the camp, he was told by God that he would be provided for.

    There was just as much opportunity for the Ishmaelite's to be saved as anyone else. When God made a choice, He says through Jacob will be my promised line. He wasn't telling Esau "I hate you so you're not going to be saved!"

    Jacob and Esau were not in competition as to who's going to be saved and who's going to be rejected. This is the choosing of who Israel is going to come through. Jacob was chosen for the chosen line and it was all of God.



    It is interesting that when God made His choice, it was the opposite of the human because in the human, whoever is born first has to be the firstborn and he gets the promise of the firstborn.

    So before they were even born, God says "Well, I don't want to do it that way because then man will say that he was in line anyway. So I'll choose the second because he's not supposed to be, so I'll choose him just to show you that it will be of God."

    That's what we are looking at here. The emphasis is when God chose Israel, not all of Israel is Israel.

    But there is an elect within Israel who are Jewish and are Hebrew that God has chosen and it's through Abraham, through Isaac, and now He has chosen through Jacob.

    That doesn't mean Esau is not loved by God and that Jesus didn't come and die for the Edomites. Yes, He did! He's not choosing salvation. He's choosing which line Messiah is going to come from through this entire nation of Israel.

    I hope this helps!
  • Curiosone - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Lol, What scriptures am I twisting around? I'm only reading it as it says and not adding anything too it, others do that (your adding -"from the serpents wrath"). Precept must be upon precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little. What you say only confuses things further - its been said that in the future - (last days), the "Anti-Christ" will appear, so since you say that the serpent in verse 14 is that "Anti-Christ", your placing this verse to happen in the future but wait...America is "nourishing" - funding Israel (the land mass) now so does that mean the "Anti-Christ" is here now? In other words, is America nourishing Israel from the serpents wrath now? How could that be if the serpent is not here yet? Smh

    Lastly, we know that serpent and dragon are the same thing based on verse 12:9, so where does John pull this similitude from, the old testament Job 30:29 - I am a brother to dragons, and a companion to owls. Job, an Israelite, calls his brother a dragon...who was Jobs brother, Esau - Malachi 1:3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness - GOD calls Esau "dragons of the wilderness". Notice here that the serpent or dragon as spoke of in the old testament refers to more than one and not one single man but many men or a nation such as Esau that was a man in the beginning but spawned a prominent birthright nation of people as God told Abraham and Sarah.

    Jim, if Jesus died for ALL then why did he speak in parables to hide the gospel from some?

    Matthew Chapter 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

    11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is NOT GIVEN not given.

    12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

    Malachi 1:3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

    God hated Esau (Yes I know they want to CONvince us this means love less)

    ...The people against whom the LORD hath indignation for ever.... how long is for ever?

    The Lord does not love Esau / Edom and King Herod was of this lineage per Jewish historian Josephus.

    If you do not know the sin of Esau I suggest you look into his marriage into the Hittite canaanite lineage.
  • D.J. - in Reply on Mark 7:7
    Isaac,

    Romans 8:28 basically states that the plan of God will be done through His "elect" children.

    God also utilizes Satan's children to bring about His perfect plan, look at Isaiah 10:5, 19:25, Jeremiah 42:18, etc.

    The "elect" children of God concerns "predestination," look at Romans 8:29-30, 1 Corinthians 2:7, Ephesians 1:5, 11.

    Predestination has to do with understanding that there are 3 earth and heaven ages spoken of in the word of God, 2 Peter 3:5-6 speaks of the 1st dispensation of time; 2 Peter 3:7 speaks of the 2nd dispensation of time; and 2 Peter 3:13 speaks of the 3rd dispensation of time.)

    The 1st earth and heaven age ended due to the fall of Satan, and is recorded in Genesis 1:1-2. The earth BECAME without form and void; God did not make it that way!

    The 2nd earth and heaven age came into being when the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and God said Let there be Light ( Genesis 1:2-3)

    The 3rd earth and heaven age is what all children of God look forward to.

    God "did foreknow" ( Rom 8:29) each and every one of us because we were all there in the 1st Dispensation of time.

    Jeremiah was (foreordained) a prophet BEFORE he was born ( Jeremiah 1:5).

    God hated Esau BEFORE he was born because Esau despised his (birth)-right and (likely) followed Satan in the 1st earth age ( Genesis 25:32-34, Malachi 1:3, Romans 9:13, Hebrews 12:16)

    God loves everyone? What about Psalms 11:5? "The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth." And Malachi 1:2-4; "..I loved Jacob, and I hated Esau.." God first loved us, and sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for us to save us from our sins. He is good, kind, and patient, even toward His enemies; but for His love they are His adversaries.

    Evangelist Chatauna Robinson Well, if you notice in the word Romans 9 and Malachi 1 that God loved Jacob and hated Esau you have to realize God lived with them and also read Jeremiah 1 vs. 2 and 3 and God knew Jeremiah before He place him in his mothers belly. Also you can go to the appendix 's of the Companion Bible and read app. 146 and it will direct you to the verses of the usage of the word foundation and it will help you to understand the New Testament and the mystery of God of the first earth age. Also the side notes on the pages of a Companion Bible help a great deal in understanding the word. We know God created a beautiful earth and all the stars sang and the sons of God shouted for joy and that 's the whole batch of souls God ever created in Job 38vs 7. God created a beautiful home for all of us in the beginning millions of years ago Proverbs 8 vs 22 27 so just read the Bible, have an old Exhaustive Strong 's Concordance and clear your mind of the teachings by men and just forget what all of them said.

He tells us to eat the Book, consume the whole Book chapter by chapter so we can understand what it is all about. Anyway we lived in spirit bodies and souls which is our self.

    I remember when I was a little girl we would store all our caned veggies in the cellar which could mean store house. So all through the winter we would have enough food in our house. well as a church we could do the same thing to feed the people but we rely on the world to do this now as a nation we are cursed with a curse cause so many people are starving because we don 't do the things we used to do. Malachi 3 9 Ye are cursed with a curse for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Go back to verse 8 and it asks us wherein have we robbed thee? That is not talking just about money. Go down to Malachi 15 it talks about those have worked wickedness even they who do that can be delivered if you come back to him and do the thing that you did when you were when you served the Lord God in heaven he is the only one that we should serve. when we give all of ourselves and tithes and offerings to the Lord God only then all his blessing will be poured out and our minds can not even comprehend how much that would be cause we have lived to our worldly ways for so long! If we do just support our churches with 10 money dose that really fix things to where he will pore out his blessings on us? I do not think it dose.
  • Ryan on John 5:43
    He came in his Father's name, because his Father's name is Jesus. God was known by many names/titles in the past. But it is written that Jesus is God's name, and the only name to fulfill what is clearly written! Such as but not limited to, Malachi 1:11, Jesus name fulfills this. Philippians 2:9, Again, Jesus name is known above every name. Isaiah 9:6 tells us Jesus is God, and St. Matthew 28:19 was followed by the Apostles when they baptized in Jesus name only; the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Acts 2:21, the name that saves!
  • Sumner fuentes on Isaiah 60
    Isaiah 60:22, A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time. It means the righteous teachings will not come from a big land but from a group of islands. Who are these islands? Islands that love, give praise, respect God. Where can you find these islands? Malachi 1:11 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB): For from farthest east to farthest west my name is great among the nations. Offerings are presented to my name everywhere, pure gifts; for my name is great among the nations.
  • Esau is of Satan's blood line. Genesis 26:34-35
    He married "Judith" a Canaanite women (birds of a feather flock together) the daughter of Cain the murderer of Abel.
    That rebellious union made Issac and Rebekah very bitter because he left the God of their fore- father's, for an idol worshiper.

    Genesis 33:2 Jacob puts his most precious family members (including Dinah) in the most rear section of the caravan. (farthest away from the prying eyes of Esau)

    Genesis 33:15 Esau is trying to trick Jacob into taking his blood line to join with Jacob's family members. (to prevent/pollute the pure seed-line of God's man "Jesus" from coming into this world and saving it!) Thank God, Jacob doesn't take the bait!

    Genesis 34:1-2 no more Mr. nice guy, Satan's evil spirits have Shechem rape Dinah! (Jacob's daughter)
    Shechem's dad - Hamor's answer to rape - let us impregnate the rest of your "Holy seeded" children with "my son the rapist" and his cousins blood-line to boot!
    2 MAJOR WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT!!!!
    Malachi 1:3 that is why God said, Jacob I loved,
    Esau I hated.

    Genesis 34:25 Thank Simeon and Levi the "Avenger Brother's" for Dinah, to putting an end to the humbling any more of their women folk!
  • Anonymous on Acts 2
    The new name of our Heavenly Father is Jesus Christ. In the old testament our Heavenly Father has many names. The following names are Yah-weh, Jehova, Holy God, Jealous God, Father God, I am who I am. To prove that the new name of our Heavenly Father is the name Jesus Christ through the prophesy of the following prophets : Isaiah 62:2 - shall be called by a new name, Zechariah 14:9 - in that day shall there be one Lord and his name one. In Malachi 1 : 11- my name shall be great among the Gentile nations and one is the Philippines who believed to the living God, the name Jesus Christ was so great to all the Gentile nations who believed God. This name also in the time of Apostle Paul the name Jesus Christ is so great in Acts 19:17. Then in Rev. 3:12 - says the I will write upon him the name of my God, and my new name. To those who opposed / argued that the new name of our Heavenly Father is Jesus Christ. Then, they will give the new name of our Heavenly Father ? or what is his name ? The word Father is not a proper name or a given name. The word Jesus Christ is a proper name but the word Father is a common name or common noun. So the name name Jesus Christ is the new name of our Heavenly Father. To those who against the name of the new name of our Heavenly Father must have to write or reveal the name of their Heavenly Father also?. In Rev. 2:17 - a new name was given and only those who received his name knows him. Jesus Christ is the new name of our Heavenly Father.
