Jacob I have loved and Esau I have hated!
Today on my way to a consultation with an orthopaedician in jabalpur we walked into an assembly of God church for the morning service and a preacher originally from Congo but based in UK had this revelation for me from the word of God. 'Jacob I have loved ,Esau I have hated'. The children of Isaac and Rebecca were born due to earnest pleading by Isaac to the Lord and it happened after twenty five years of their marriage.Isaac was a man with whom God himself had covenant and so it was to happen sooner or later. Rebecca conceives,right from the womb there is a struggle between the two children. And yet as the children grow up it is Rebecca who turns out to be a woman of revelation and not Isaac who is actually the man with the covenant with God. 'Jacob I have loved and Esau I have hated...'thus says the Lord God. It was Rebecca who loved after the manner of God and not Isaac who actually went after his feelings and flesh. If what Isaac willed would have happened perhaps the history of the world would have been different but Rebekka the womaan of revelation had the heart of God and was instrumental in the plan of God to bring redemption to man-kind. How important it is for us to be men and women of revelation,people who understand the heart of God and move accordingly in all areas of life.
