Isaac and Rebecca Seed Two Nations
Isaac and Rebecca the Seed Two Nations and the promise. The Lord God spoke to Rebecca upon the wrestling of the twins Esau and Jacob. The Promise to Abraham flows to Isaac and the Lord said “Two nations are in thy womb.” These words start a phrase of these nations and the destiny of both. Destiny rises in the hand of the Lord upon the chosen nations and it is these two nations, Esau who will be known as Edom and Jacob, out of whom the promise will flow 12 nations and the nation called Israel. Isaac the promise son, the promise given, and the covenant of promise. Isaac from whom the hope to inherit the Land and live in it, becoming a nation of peoples that literally could not be numbered. This is the promise given to Isaac and even today, it is being fulfilled.
Isaac and Rebecca Torah reading: Gen 25:19-28:9 1 Sam 20:18-42
Esau, the hairy one and Jacob, the heel holder. Thus the twins of Isaac and Rebecca begin their struggle in the womb. Isaac watches as the two sons continue this opposite force of contradiction. The one Esau is representative of sensual vigor and wildness, this is Esau. While Jacob the heel holder represents one who holds the heel, to outwit, as in wrestling in an attempt to throw the opponent by grasping his heel. Jacob the supplanter and one whom God will see his promise flow through, even if Jacob needs to be taught. Both become great and mighty in the nations, yet through Isaac and Rebecca only one had the promise to bring in the House of Jacob, the Lion of the tribe of Judah. That one was Jacob. Listen in as we discuss this work of the Lord in the lives of Isaac, Rebecca, Esau, and Jacob. A work that will continue through all history and affect all peoples on earth.
Gen 25:22- And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD.
Gen 25:23- And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
