A disciple's comment on 1/24/2018, 4:56am...

"And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?..and he sold his birthright unto Jacob..thus Esau despised his birthright." The Scriptures declare clearly what kind of man Esau was; yet most find fault with Jacob for his scheming, but hardly say a peep about Esau the heathen hater of the LORD. God knew what kind both men were, and chose Jacob.

Man's goings are of the Lords." He declares the beginning to the end.

V. 6 - the "east country" would be what is now Iran (formerly Persia; King Cyrus, whom God used to help rebuild the 2nd temple) Persia was his country.

I think that Jacob cared about his future more than Esau did his. Esau just wanted to satisfy his appetite there and then and did not think about what he was agreeing with. We should not be blinded by lust of the eyes
But keep our eyes on Jesus.

We must remember the Lord Jesus knew the boys before they were born he knew their harts .so he already knew what would happen u see God allow all that to happen other wise it would'nt have happen before birth God already had chosen the one he love that did not mean he did not love the other .but this where family devision started and today it is still happen stealing birth rights .GOD HATES SIN

Re Nancy
There is a theme which runs through the bible. Our human nature (firstborn nature) (Esau nature) does not give us a place in heaven. But our human nature must submit to the Devine nature (Born again nature from God) so we can have a place in heaven. Esau pleased his human nature and didn't think of God . Jacob gave God his all. (Whole sacrifice) and it pleased God.

Jacob wanted the Esau birthright to gain power over him. Rebekah their mother should have said something when this was done but did not becausr she had her own agenda. Jacob knew his father favored Esau and wanted that same attention by getting his brother's birthright.

Whatever plans God has for you will come to pass, because even before Esua and Jacob was born their mother Rebecca asked God and she was told Jacob will be great . So Esau exchanging his birthright for was God's way of making that come to pass.

I think Jacob was selfish and care only about himself. Easu did not appreciate his blessing of being the first born. I have never understood what God was meaning by Jacob I loved Eaus I hated. If anyone can explain what God was saying by these words I would appreciate it.

God knew his weakness right frm his mothers womb. He lost his birthright unconciously. It was 2 late whn he sought it wit tears.

i think Esua was just thinking about the present forgetting that the present affects the future

Jacob was a greedy person for adding conditions before giving out the food

 


Gozie Mcinnocent's comment about verse 29 on 11/25/2014, 10:10am...

I think Esau made a mistake in depending on Jacob 's meal. Their mother was still alive. He should have gone to her for his food!

Where is the land of the east ? Could it be Asia

 


Adedoyin adeyemi's comment about verse 28 on 8/28/2014, 2:30am...

Rebekah had already had an insight into the destinies of her children. Hence, her choice to tilt to God 's favourite direction.

 


Zac's comment on 5/24/2014, 7:11pm...

Hebrews 12 16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. 17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. REPENTANCE IS NOT FOR ESAU! WAKE UP ISRAEL!

Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. 14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

 


Eileen's comment on 8/10/2013, 2:04pm...

Yes like many its good to read the word everyday, even feed on the word before eating breadfast, we need our spiritual food first. God is so good, we hunger and thirst after Righteousnes.

I so much cherish to read bible because it brings light to my heart.

 


Olayinka oye's comment on 1/24/2013, 8:18am...

Genesis 25:32: And Esau said, Behold I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright to me? Thus Esau despised his birthright. He mortgaged his future because of his immediate want of food. He allowed his decision to be influenced by the immediate benefit. We need to learn from Esau, we should not allow the temporary gain made us forfeit the future blessings of God in our lives which are beyond imaginations.
