Wesley's Notes for Genesis 27:19


27:19 And Jacob said, I am Esau - Who would have thought this plain man could have played such a part? His mother having put him in the way of it, he applies himself to those methods which he had never accustomed himself to, but had always conceived an abhorrence of. But lying is soon learned. I wonder how honest Jacob could so readily turn his tongue to say, I am Esau thy first - born: and when his father asked him, #Ge 27:24|. Art thou my very son Esau? to reply I am. How could he say, I have done as thou badst me, when he had received no command from his father, but was doing as his mother bid him? How could he say, Eat of my venison, when he knew it came not from the field, but from the fold? But especially I wonder how he could have the forehead to father it upon God, and to use his name in the cheat.


Discussion for Genesis 27:19

  • Winnie Mbamalu for verse 19
    On the day that this incident took place, nobody in jacob's household understood that what they were watching was a sign, nobody in that house knew that they were a privileged audience of prophecy being dramatized and demonstrated.

    Jacob in that attire standing before his father was a picture and a representative of the end- time Church. The voice of Jacob and the hand of Esau was is satan's biggest desire for every true believer for it's all about DOBLE IDENTIY, having a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof.

    Ever wondered why we pray, fast, confess the word and yet still struggle? Double Identity - that's why. Brethren, Christianity is not a designers' suit to be worn when occasion demands to be worn outside and when we get home we pull it off! Double Identity is about hypocrisy, God hates it. We are not the Scribes and Pharisees, we are a royal priesthood.... (this space is for commentaries, I have to stop) Thank you.
