So Esau went to Ishmael and took Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife in addition to the wives he had. Genesis 28:9

There is more to Esau and Jacob fighting with each other while they were in Rebekah’s womb. This was probably one of the few cases of disagreement between the brothers, who had not yet been born, resolved to punches – perhaps the only one. But it came to pass, and Rebekah obtained the following answer when she consulted the Lord: There are two nations in thy womb, and two peoples shall be divided from thy bowels: one people shall be stronger than the other, and the greater shall serve the least. Gen. 25.23).


The Savior would come from one of them. So the chosen one should be good, peaceful and quiet, for he would hear the Lord and do his will. Because he was born first, Esau had the birthright and would inherit twice as much from Jacob. Yet, God considered this matter in another way. This way, the greatest, who won the fight in the womb, would serve the younger, who was born holding his brother’s heel. Hallelujah!


Jacob was sent to Paddan Aram to his grandfather’s house to take a wife (Gen. 28: 2). As soon as this happened, Esau, who sold his birthright to his brother and uselessly tried to be forgiven, revealed his nature. He went to Ishmael, his uncle, to get another wife and tease his mother. God knows more than we do because He is omniscient. Therefore, we must give Him all the credit when He tells us something.

While Jacob strove to be a good man, Esau showed no pleasure in pleasing his parents. His hatred grew more because Jacob heard his father and went to fetch a wife. Well, instead of following the divine plan, Esau chose the plan of the one who still took him in the womb. Many prefer to live in a harsh and evil environment for spiritual reasons.

Ananias was a man of wealth and joined with God’s people (Acts 5: 1-10). However, just as he saw divine power using Peter, who resisted the pressure of Jewish priests, contrary to the Christian faith in the city of the Great King, he also witnessed people selling property to deliver the value received to the church, and this was commented on. For all. In these cases, Ananias let Satan into his heart.

By selling a property, Ananias put a certain amount of money at Peter’s feet. So far, so good, because that man didn’t even have to give the church anything, since there was no such requirement. However, he sinned when he claimed that this was the full price of the sale and therefore was donating everything to God’s house. Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, asked if this was true, and before them and the Holy Spirit Ananias said yes. The apostle then asked why he lied to God, and there Ananias died!

It is unbearable for the Most High to see man in the lie or in any other work of the devil. Since God is the absolute Holiness, he will soon execute the judgment on him who gives himself to the evil one. As a result, hours later, when Sapphire, Ananias’s wife, also lied when asked about the value of the sale of the property, had the same end as her husband. In Esau’s case, divine foreknowledge saw his inability to be an ancestor of Jesus.

In Christ, with love,

O God! Esau lacked appreciation for doing good and consecrating himself to Him. He loved life with errors and evils. Esau was profane, for he failed to heed what he had acquired at birth, selling his birthright.

Isaac knew he could send Jacob, because his son had managed to stay single until he was ordered to go to Paddan-aram and take a wife for his wife. You love those who love You, so Jacob was rewarded as one of the Savior's ascendants.

We do not know Your purposes for us, but they are certainly good. You have shown us how much you love us. Therefore, we come to You to receive what belongs to us. After all, the saved will live by your side forever. Be glorified in us!
