Esau Sells His Birthright
Jan 18, 2015- Genesis 25
True Faith Is Worth Sharing!
Please join with us sharing God’s Word daily. We will spend about fifteen minutes a day praying and reading every word in God’s Word in approximately three years1.
“16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 New King James Version (NKJV).
Today we prayerfully continue our Feast by reading the book of Genesis Chapter 25; “Abraham’s family by Keturah, His death and burial. (1-10) God blesses Isaac The descendants of Ishmael. (11-18) The birth of Esau and Jacob. (19-26) The different characters of Esau and Jacob. (27,28) Esau despises and sells his birth-right. (29-34) ” – Matthew Henry Concise
Today’s Feast is a perfect picture of how man can through away their blessings from God; “29 Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary. 30 And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom.
31 But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.”
32 And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”
33 Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.”
So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. 34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.” Genesis 25:29–34 NKJV.We see Esau walking away sure that he traded what was his for something (Bread and Soup) he thought more important at the time. Beside surely his father would know he was tricked and would not withhold his blessing. Sometimes even Christians feel like it is only words when they sin. I tell you Christian Saints every sin is another lash on our Lord and Master Jesus. No matter how your feeling you are sealed by the Holy Spirit and when you sin your grieving God. We need to learn how to control the most unruly part of the body, our tongue. “but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts.” 1 Thessalonians 2:4

Do you hear him, Jesus is calling, accept Jesus into your heart? Just say this simple prayer; “Dear God, I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sin. I am willing to turn from sin. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Savior.“ If you said this prayer inviting Jesus into your heart, you need fellowship and so do we. We worship and fellowship in a Church (group of believers) that strive to measures up to God’s Word. You need a Bible believing body of believers (church) to worship and pray with. Our salvation depends completely on God! We are the Saints that Jesus sacrificed his life to pay in full for our sin, when we repent (turn from sin) and accept Jesus. Know this if you sinned the sin that can’t be forgiven, you won’t hear Jesus calling.
