And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright. (Gen 25:30-34)
GOD knew the people, and His plans. He knew the character of Isaac and Rebekah, as well as what Jacob and Esau would become. Just as He chose Abraham and Isaac, He chose Jacob, because of the man Jacob would become as Israel, the patriarch and progenitor of the nation of Israel. He rejected Esau because He knew Esau would despise and reject Him.
GOD also knows each of us, and has plans for us in His Kingdom. He desires that all men, everywhere, repent and come to a saving faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary first of all. He also plans for all His children to be conformed to the image of His dear Son through discipleship in the Word and through His Spirit. He commands all of His own, to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, and forgiveness of sIn in His Name, to all who will hear. Where and how He fits you into His workmanship, His Church, depends on His will, and your obedience to the work He has for you to do. He has commissioned us to minister to the hurting as He provides and directs, to disciple one another in love and His Word, and to share the Gospel to all, as we go, that they might believe, and believing have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. Turn away from your sIn and unrighteousness and trust what He has already done on that cruel Roman cross. GOD has provided forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, and is our Life. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life.
