The tale of two brothers….twice. Then and now. Part 2.

From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher

To: those that will hear the Word of God by the Spirit of God.

. on Jacob’s way back home, he was going to have to confront Esau.

. he was greatly afraid of Esau.

. he was greatly distressed by Esau.

. he dreaded Esau.

. he tried to appease Esau.

. but there came the time that Jacob was left alone.

. nobody but him and God.

. left alone to wrestle with God.

. can you imagine such a thing?

. a mere man?

. left alone to wrestle with God?

. in the wrestling, through the dark night, the hollow of Jacob’s thigh came out of joint.

. it was nearing daybreak then, and the angel of the Lord said: “Let me go.”

. Jacob said: “I will not let you go until you bless me.”

. THEN, when he had made the decision to NOT LET HIM GO…

. the angel THEN said: “What is your name?”

. Jacob, in my own mind’s eye, must have been weary and tired and worn by then.

. his determination to receive the blessing from God was not deterred tho.

. I can see him, aghast, shocked as he said it; as he finally admitted and confessed to God who he really was;

. Jacob. supplanter.

. he admitted and confessed his sin.

. NOW! here comes the blessing!

. “your name will no more be called Jacob.

. but your name is now called Israel!”

. a prince! power with God and with man!

. he had prevailed!

. the blessing was to be called Israel!

. the Israel of God!

. I struggle with human words to be able to say this properly, by the Spirit of God.

. forgive me where I fail to deliver this truth with the understanding that must come…

. before this is over, this same battle between these same brothers will be fought by every individual and every nation.

. individuals and nations, before this is over will come face to face with the Lord God of the whole earth.

. every individual and every nation will choose.

. there are only two types of individuals.

. there are only two types of nations.

. Israel.

. and everybody else.

. Israel.

. and the goyim. the gentiles.

. those of the Spirit.

. those of the flesh.

. Oh! that every individual and every nation would be left alone with God.

. Oh! as the night descends, that every individual and every nation would be given one last chance to wrestle with God until they will never walk the same way again.

. until they will never be afraid of Esau again.

. until they will never be distressed and in dread of Esau again.

. until they will never appease Esau again.

. until their flesh is so crippled and out of joint that they will never walk the same way again.

. until their flesh is so crippled and out of joint, when asked to tell God their name,

. they could cry their true name and character out to Him in recognition and repentance and forgiveness by His blood,

. so at daybreak,

. He can bless them,

. and change their name—

. to Israel.
