“.. nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom..” Matt.24:7, Luke 21:10
And the LORD said to her, “Two nations are in your womb; and two peoples shall be separated from your body” Gen.25:23
When her days to be delivered were fulfilled,
behold, there were twins in her womb. Gen.25:24
There are two churches growing in the field: the true and the fake. Two nations are growing up together, and they grow up in the same house, where they struggle together “within her”. Esau disregards his birthright. He satisfies and pleases himself. Esau marries heathens; he is spiritually unfaithful. He stays proud; he is of the flesh. He receives judgment and doom. He builds his own kingdom, serving self. He is a usurper. Esau rises himself to exalted power on the earth. He is revealed first. He is apostate. Esau hates Jacob. He wants to kill him.
Jacob treasures his birthright. Jacob desires and pleases God. He is spiritually faithful to God. He becomes humble, he is of the Spirit. He receives the blessed promises and the inheritance of God Himself. He builds the kingdom of God, serving Christ. He is chosen and beloved of God. Jacob humbly kneels under the blood of Christ. He is revealed second. He is faithful. Jacob loves God. Jacob prays for protection and trusts God by faith. He believes and trusts the promises of God. Jacob contends, he strives, fights and persists to have God. Jacob seeks God’s favor and he weeps in prayer. Jacob pleads for God’s blessing. He wants to know Him and commune with Him! Jacob strives with God in intimate relationship and prevails. Jacob strives with men in order to be faithful to God.
