Genesis 27 | Jacob & The Blessing
October 16, 2022
Jacob is the son of Isaac that God has chosen to carry on his plan of salvation in the line of Abraham until the one who would crush the serpents head once and for all. But neither Jacob, nor his plotting mother Rebekah, seem concerned with the Covenant Promises when they make a plan to deceive Isaac and steal the Father Blessing from Esau, Jacob’s brother and the first-born son of Isaac. Isaac does bless Jacob. But to understand what God is doing, we need to understand the blessing that was given to Jacob, the blessing that Jacob desired, and the blessing that Jacob needed and God had already offered him (and us).
