Last week we looked at how events in the life of Abraham’s son Isaac gives us a picture, or foreshadow, of Jesus. As we continue our case for the Old Testament, following the narrative in Genesis, we find God’s Promise to Abraham being passed on to his son Isaac (not Ishmael as some would claim today), and not by Abraham, but by God Himself. gas monkey Why does God do it this way? Let’s review because the answer is in the big picture:

In this chapter we find Isaac at 60 years of age and they were barren (they had waited on the LORD 20 years for children). Then Isaac prayed to the LORD and He opened Rebekah’s womb and she had twins. gas oil ratio 50 to 1 Notice the theme of “miraculous births” throughout the Bible, especially here in Genesis – it is a picture or foreshadow of something else to come: THE VIRGIN BIRTH!

Esau was the first born (his name means harry, later he is called Edom (which means red) and he is the father of the Edomite Nation. Jacob was born second, but grabbed his brother’s foot on the way out (his name means heal catcher). electricity per kwh This is the first sign that there would be struggle between these two brothers. Rebekah asked the LORD why they were struggling while still in her womb, and the LORD answered her: The LORD said to her, “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.” Genesis 25:23

Esau became a skilled hunter, Jacob was a quiet man staying among the tents. gas x breastfeeding side effects This did not necessarily mean that he was weak or soft as many portray, it most likely meant that he was a shepherd and that living in the tents meant he moved around with the flocks. The first sign of Jacob’s deceptive nature comes here as he deals his brother out of his birthright for some stew. power definition physics electricity By swearing to Jacob, Esau basically sold his birthright which was the blessing that God had given Abraham and Isaac. electricity bill nye It would latter include any inheritance that he would receive when his father Isaac died. So Esau despised his birthright, he didn’t care about it, in fact he hated it. This attitude shows that Esau was not “God fearing,” nor did he care about the family history and what his grandfather and father had been through, because the heart of the birthright was the passing of the Covenant promise from God.

The Lord appeared to him and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; stay in the land of which I shall tell you. Sojourn in this land and I will be with you and bless you, for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath which I swore to your father Abraham. I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws.”

This chapter also contains an interlude where Isaac appears to follow in the footsteps of his father Abraham by lying about Rebekah being his sister, not his wife. This narrative gives emphasis to the fact that the LORD is protecting the righteous seed by not allowing Abimelech or his men to touch Rebekah. The difference here is that neither Abimelech nor anyone actually took her as they did with Sarah. gas tax in texas Isaac had followed God’s request to stay in that land and not to go down to Egypt.

You will not find this material in the public school curriculum even though it is based on solid evidence and grounded in research. It is ironic that following the evidence to where it leads stops at the door of our public schools as they will not let a “Divine footprint” in!
