Esau/Edom, and the Trail of the Serpent
You've heard it said that obedience to God's Word is better than sacrifice. His Word does not return to Him void but accomplishes what He intended. By obedience we partake of His Spirit and Life. Disobedience to God's Word is separation and sin resulting is death, our own or that of an innocent substitutesacrifice.
When God commissioned Moses to conquer Canaan He inspired him to call obedience in the Words of our first Scripture. Deuteronomy 7:1-4, "When the Lord brings you into the Promised Land, he will cast out the following seven nations; all greater and mightier than you are: the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. And when the Lord God delivers them to you; you shall smite and utterly destroy them; you shall make no covenant nor show mercy to them: Neither shall you intermarry with them nor let your sons and daughters marry their sons and daughters for they will turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods. Then the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, to destroy you suddenly".
The natural man might think, "How unfair and unreasonable of God to order the destruction of these innocent people." They haven't a chance. What wrong have they done. They forget that God is a God of His Word, and not only is He fair and "just" but He is holy and He is sovereign. The very existence of these people is an affront to God's holiness as are not His creation but the hybrid offspring of the unrighteous union between Eve and the Serpent, the fruit of sin.
Deuteronomy 28:1, "If you fully obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will raise you high above all the nations of the earth." From history and the Bible we know that Israel disobeyed God's command.
Deuteronomy 28:43-44, "The stranger [temporary inhabitant or "ger" who lacks inherited rights] that is within you shall get up above you very high; and you shall come down very low. He shall lend to you, and you shall not lend to him: he shall be the head, and you shalt be the tail".
This applies to the so-called Christian churches today, including many in the circle of this Message because we have let down the bars and the goats have come in. And so-called multiculturalism, which is multi-racialism, has brought all manner of "strangers" into our midst, descendants of Cain and Esau, Jacob's reprobate brother who married Serpent seed women. We're not just studying ancient history, this is the state of the world right now. Who has "inherited rights" to the our nations? Who has "inherited rights" to the land of Israel? Only the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Right? But who rules the nations and the restored State of Israel? "Strangers!" Edomites. Right?
Today there's a kind of apartheid in Israel whereby the Ashkenazim self-styled Jews have an advantage over genuine Hebrews with have preferential treatment in housing, employment and in education. Ashkenazi Jack Bernstein married a Sephardic woman whom the Ashkenazim call 'Kooshim' which means 'Nigger' in Hebrew, and was threatened by a police officer who "pointed his gun right at my face".
Because the Israelites did not destroy God's enemies and remain a separated people following the return from Babylonian Captivity, they have been the tail, and Edom has been the head in Israel. Likewise the once Western nations of the world did not remain separated to God and His Word, but allowed these people into our lands, into the business and political life of our communities, even into our churches and Bible schools.
It wasn't always this way. These people were at some time expelled from Britain and all the kingdoms of Europe because of their evil. There was a time when their identity was known and Christians did not associate with them. Over time they have assumed English, Polish, Dutch, German, Russian, Hungarian, American and Australian identities because we have not separated nominal Christians from our midst. We've failed to honor the admonition of Acts 17:11 and prove everything the preacher says. Therefore we have been dumbed-down by false preachers who teach us that "Jews are Israelites".
The church, institutions of learning, courts, and the bureaucracy, have all been infiltrated and influenced by these people who have introduced a new paradigm, as they did in Israel, where they wrote the Talmud that institutes rules and rituals abhorrent to the Torah. This lewd holy book that creates loopholes for disobedience, condones pederasty, homosexuality, adultery, blasphemy, murder, rape, lying, and subterfuge, deceit and stealing against non-Jews and Gentiles.
Whence comes the inspiration for filthy music, songs, entertainment and movies, that are piped into almost every home? Where does the inspiration come from for today's crime wave? The crimes are those condoned by the Talmud. It comes from one filthy, satanic book of hatred the Babylonian Talmud that's opposed to the Law and Prophets, and an affront to the most basic of human decencies. It should have been banned and burned long ago. Once, when England and Europe held to the Christian principles they espouse, it was.
Today all but a tiny fraction of Israelites have forsaken the Law and the prophets to obey the Talmud, as all but a tiny minority who call upon the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ have forsaken the Bible to follow man-made creeds, Judaeo-Communistic reasoning against the Word in favor of majority choice and the situational ethics of Humanism. As God allowed theologians to blind the eyes of the Hebrews at the end of the dispensation of Moses' Law, He has permitted Jewry to blind the Gentiles by theological reasoning against the Word and the end of our dispensation (Genesis 3:15). The prophet Paul foretold, "God has concluded both Israel and the Gentiles in unbelief" (Romans 11:32).
This explain the continual conflict and deep-seated hatred of the self-styled Jew against genuine Israelites and Christians Spiritual Israelites. Our once Christian society was built upon principles of Hebrew Law "magnified and made honourable" by Christ (Isaiah 42:21), with justice, personal property, free enterprise (not Capitalism), local control of government and Biblical laws and judgment the Jew never adopted. Our rights and Common Law inherited from Britain are by law meant to be interpreted according to the Bible. But so-called Jews have historically promoted the opposing principles of democracy, socialism and communismall contrary to the sound Biblical principles of liberty and self-government.
Esau's efforts to steal back Jacob's birthright are manifested in their attempts, over 3,700 years, to exterminate Israel. They are following in the footsteps of their father Cain, who thought that by killing his step-brother Abel, he could usurp the birthright he never owned. But Edomites are mamsers, and one born of incest or adultery, especially with Cain's race, can never enter into the congregation of the Lord which is the election (Deuteronomy 23:2). The British Israel cult, part of the Jewish Cabala invented by John Dee, astrologer to Elizabeth I, is naively trying to steal Israel's birthright.
The 1980 Jewish Almanac informs us "Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a 'Jew' or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew" (p. 3). They know they are Edomites, Jacob/Israel's enemy. In all their authoritative works they identify themselves as Esau, or Edom. Having irrevocably granted Esau's blessing to Jacob, Isaac told Esau he would have to make his own way in the world, prophesying how he would carve out his future by violence, and serve Jacob, but that when he became restive, he would throw off Jacob's yoke and take the dominion. Esau hated Jacob because of the lost blessing: and said in his heart, "The days of mourning for my father are at hand; after his death I will slay my brother Jacob" (Genesis 27:39-41).
The first enemies to obstruct the flight of Jacob's descendants from Egypt were the Amalekites (Exodus 17:8). Then Edom refused the children of Israel permission to pass through their land (Numbers 20:17-20). The Edomite, Doeg, almost succeeded in killing David (I Samuel 21-22). David's armies laid Edom waste and slew all men able to bear arms (II Samuel 8:14; I Kings 11:16), but in the days of Jehoram's wicked reign in Judah Edom revolted and made themselves a king.
Bloody battles were fought between the two nations throughout the succeeding centuries. Edom has not returned under Jacob's yoke to this day because when John Hyrcanus conquered the whole of Edom in 125BC, he gave them the choice between death and forced conversion to Judaism. Thenceforth they became part of the Jewish people in the sight of man, and one hundred years before Christ, Judah was inhabited by Edomites. They soon became the head and the Hebrews became the tail. There were many Edomites in the population at the time of Christ, and the Pharisees gained the ascendancy over the Sadducees.
King Herod who was an Edomite and head over Judea at the birth of Jesus, had all the male infants of Bethlehem slain in an effort to destroy Israel's Messiah and future King. Israel's high priesthood was corrupt and the Sanhedrin ruled by Pharisaism which we know as Judaism today. Both Edomites Israelites were followers of the Talmud in the days of Jesus.
Matthew 23:27-36, "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! you are like whitewashed sepulchers, which appear beautiful without but are full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness within. Likewise you appear righteous outwardly, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say, "If we'd lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have partaken with them in the blood of the prophets." Wherefore you witness against yourselves that you are the children of those who killed the prophets. And you are following in their footsteps, filling up the measure of their evil. You serpents, you offspring of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?
I will send you prophets, and wise men, and inspired writers: some of whom you'll kill and crucify; and some of them you'll scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city: so that you may become guilty of all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar."
According to the order of the Hebrew Old Testament, II Chronicles is the last Book in the Volume. So Abel was the first martyr and Zechariah, would have been the last (II Chronicles 24:21). Who killed Abel? Jesus said it was the forefathers of these Pharisees to whom he was speaking. Abel was slain by the Serpent's seed, Cain. It was by no coincidence that Jesus called these men a race of Serpents. They were the descendants of Cain, whose father the Serpent, seduced Eve before Adam came to her.
"Verily I say to you, All these things shall come upon this race".
Who killed Abel? Who is killing Adam's children today, trying to gain a birthright they never possessed?
When Cain offered his sacrifice of "good works" he laid beautiful pumpkins, cauliflower, string beans, apples, oranges and potatoes on the altar, and God rejected his intellectual self-righteousness but He accepted Abel's bloody lamb because it was offered by faith which is a clear understanding of the mind of God. By faith Abel knew it was animal blood that caused the Fall, not V8 Juice! And innocent blood must be shed to atone. The life is in the blood so when his mother Eve received the life of the Serpent, she stepped over God's Word and sold the whole world to death. That blood became Cain who had the same fleshly intellectual attributes as his father and is not in the genealogy of the human race. He's not in the genealogy of God either.
God told Cain to ask his young prophet brother, whose revelation was vindicated before his eyes when his sacrifice was received, to explain the revelation. If Cain would offer Abel's revelation, God would receive his sacrifice. When Abel reluctantly explained the revelation, Cain saw that he was not Adam's son, that he could never merit the birthright, and as he was unrelated to Adam, he would never have a KINSMAN redeemer. Not matter how many lambs Cain offered, he would always be a Serpent and not on the Book of Life. Therefore he could never obey the revealed Word of God but would rely on his own intellect.
Cain saw that were he to follow the original plan of his vicarious father Lucifer, who inspired the Serpent to seduce Eve and hybreed the human race, he could breed Adam's race off the Book of Life and from the face of the earth, thereby becoming heir to this world. So Cain killed the heir, assumed the birthright, and began hybreeding . . . and interbreeding.
Do you see that this is what Esau/Edom has done and is doing to assume the birthright of Jacob/Israel in the natural? And can you see that this is what the Roman Catholic church is doing to the so called Protestants in the Spiritual? When their sons and daughters marry your children, they must promise to raise their offspring in the hybrid religion of the Judaeo-Catholic church. The Bible foretold these knavish intellectual tricks of the enemy (Matthew 24:37-41 Daniel 2:40-45).
So what was Jesus telling this bunch of Pharisees in Matthew 23? He was telling them to their face they were Edomite Jews, NOT Israelites. They were not descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob but the Serpent seed race whose fathers killed Abel. Who killed Abel?
The discourse between Jesus and the Pharisees in John 8:31-48 is interesting. "Jesus told those Jews who believed on Him, If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed; and you shall understand the hidden mysteries, and that revelation shall free you from the dominion of unbelief [sin] (Genesis 4:7). They answered, We are the seed of Abraham the father of faith. We were never in Spiritual bondage to any man-made religion: how can you say, You shall be set at liberty from the bondage of sin"?
"Jesus answered, Truly, whosoever wanders from the true path of righteousness is the servant of sin. And the servant abides not in the house for ever: but the Son abides ever".
Let's pause here because this is interesting. We know by the law of reproduction that all Adam's children are sons of God (Genesis 1:11). But if a son did not prove himself worthy, he would not be recognized and placed as heir by his father and could lose his natural birthright. We see this in the Church where not all of the congregation are placed sons of Adam, or born-again Sons of God, for some are foolish virgin while others will be lost.
Esau was Jacob's son, but he married forbidden women and despised the birthright, selling it to Jacob, who obtained the blessing as well. When he begged a secondary blessing from his father, the Lord said, "you will serve your brother." Esau was heir but became a servant of sin. And because he took Serpent seed women to wife, his heirs no longer abide in the House and God's Covenant is to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel.
This happened to natural Israel when they rejected their Messiah, Lord Jesus Christ. Paul wrote in Romans 9:2-6, "My heart is heavy and in continual sorrow. For I could wish myself accursed from Christ if it would save my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites; to whom pertains the adoption [recognition or placing], and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the Law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who now rules over all things, God blessed for ever. Amen."
"But it's not as though the Word of God has taken no effect. For they are not all Israel, who are of Israel".
In John 8 Jesus was confronting such a group in these Pharisees who like Esau, were born into the household of faithful Abraham but without the faith of Abraham they will not abide in the House of Israel forever.
John 8:36, "If the Son therefore shall deliver you from the dominance of sin [unbelief], you shall be completely liberated forever. I know that you are Abraham's seed; but you seek to kill Me, because My Word has no place in you. I speak that which I have discerned from My Father: and you do what you have understood from your father."
They answered and said, "Abraham is our father".
Jesus replied, "If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham. But instead you're trying to kill Me, and just because I've told you the truth I have heard of God. Abraham would not have done anything like that." [They certainly had the indelible nature of Cain].
"You do the deeds of your father".
Jesus did not deny they are Abraham's seed. Many of them probably were Abraham's seed through Isaac and Esau but not Jacob who is Israel. Whilst those who were physically of Israel, lacked the faith of Abraham.
This is supported by Genesis 21:13 where God calls Ishmael "Abraham's seed," but he is not called Abraham's child, for in Genesis 22:2, 12 and 16-18 God calls Abraham's other son Isaac "thine only son" and says that the Birthright will pass only through the godly line of Isaac. This proves Mohammed is not a prophet of God because he disputes the Word of the previously vindicated prophet Abraham.
God said in Genesis 22:17-18, "In blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying [through Isaac] I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in your seed [Christ through Isaac, not Mohammed through Ishmael] shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed My voice".
God had earlier prophesied the future of Ishmael's descendants. Genesis 16:12, "Ishmael will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell to the East of all his brethren [Israel]." As a matter of interest Ishmael and Isaac were the first persons God named before their births.
Whilst Ishmael and Esau were the "seed of Abraham," the son of the bondswoman was rejected and God called Isaac Abraham's "only son." Nowhere are the children of Ishmael or Esau called "the children of Abraham." When Esau was yet in the womb, God said, "Esau have I hated [detested)" (Malachi 1:3; Romans 9:13).
In John 8 Jesus was telling the Pharisees they were rejected by God. Though they claimed to be Abraham's natural seed, He wasn't going to debate genealogies for without faith, they were spiritual Serpent seed (I Timothy 1:4; Titus 3:9-10). Jesus let their claim to be "Abraham's seed" go through to the wicket keeper. Then told them they had the nature of Cain who killed his brother when Abel spoke the truth; a tree is known by its fruits, and their deeds identified them with their father Cain, rather than their father Abraham.
This was the harvest time for the first-fruits of the Old Testament saints that slept. The seeds were maturing, manifesting what had been planted in the garden of Eden. These Pharisees were familiar with the true story of the original sin that caused the Fall, and they knew that among their number is Esau/Edom who are Serpent's seed and not of Adam's race. The Word is becoming too sharp as Jesus parries and thrusts. So rather than risk division by Bible Truth, they compromised God's unchanging Word to preserve the unity of their organization.
And though Adam was a Son of God and we are "Adam's seed," unless we are born-again by Jesus Christ, we are not recognized or placed Sons of God, and joint heirs with Jesus in the Kingdom of God (I John 3:1-12).
Reading on, they acknowledge they too believe that the original sin was adultery between Eve and the Serpent, and know well that He is identifying them as his offspring, which they deny, and quickly switch the topic to spiritual Serpent's seed which is denominationalism, or mixing human reasoning with God's Word. John 8:41, "Then said they to him, We are not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God."
Since the Roman Catholic church caused the faith to be lost when they killed the saints who held It in their hearts, denominational ministers must have pondered over the centuries, why are these guys suddenly discussing fornication? They were not denouncing His virgin-birth as they suppose, but protesting their supposed pure Abrahamic lineage. Jesus leaves the subject of their physical lineage and answers the question of their spiritual ancestry.
"If God were your Father, you would love me: for I came from God and was sent by God. You don't comprehend My Words because you are prevented by Talmudic myths that make the Word of God on no effect. [(Matthew 15:9]. You are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a man-slayer from the beginning [because he tried to kill the whole human race], and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he expresses his natural proclivity: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
"And because I tell you the truth, you believe Me not. Who among you can convict Me of sin [unbelief]? Then if I speak truth, why don't you believe Me? He that is of God hears God's Words: you therefore hear them not, proving you are not of God [but spiritual Serpent's seed]".
Now it's really getting hot in the kitchen! Jesus just turned up the heat, because if God were their father they would love their Brother Jesus, and receive His Words. The only conclusion to draw is that their father is not God, so he has to be the Devil who was the vicarious father of Cain who slew his brother. Their desire to kill Jesus displays their father's craving for untruth, and their deceitful mode of debate identifies them with Lucifer. Well are their elite called "Illuminati".
"Then the Jews answered and said, Are we not correct when we declare You are a Samaritan, and have a demon?"
These men were Jews, not because they were Israelites or Hebrews, or because they followed the Law, but because they dwelt in Judea. Or Idumea as it became known since most of the population were Idumeans or Edomites. These Pharisees, not daring to challenge Jesus with Scripture, determined to denigrate His own natural and Spiritual lineage by calling him a demon-possessed Samaritan. Read the filthy slander about Jesus in the Talmud.
A Samaritan, strictly speaking, would be an inhabitant of the city of Samaria, but in Jesus' time the term applied to all residents of the Northern kingdom. After the final captivity of Israel by Shalmanasser in 721BC, the cities of Samaria were wholly depopulated. They remained in this state until, in the words of II Kings 17:24, "the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, Cuthah and Ava [in Assyria], Hamath, and Sepharvaim [in Syria], and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof." These new Samaritans were Assyrians by birth or subjugation and were idolaters.
This kindled God's displeasure, and they were annoyed by beasts of prey which had increased while the land was uninhabited. The king of Assyria dispatched one of the captive priests to teach them "how they should fear the Lord." Henceforth, they feared the Lord but also worshipped their idols.
When Judah returned from their Captivity the Samaritans desired to help rebuild the temple at Jerusalem. On their being refused, they became enemies and frustrated the operations of the Jews through the reign of two Persian kings, until silenced by Darius Hystaspes in 519BC.
The feud grew more intense each year until 409BC, when Manasseh, a man of priestly lineage, being expelled from Jerusalem by Nehemiah for an unlawful marriage, obtained permission from the Persian king of his day, Darius Nothus, to build a temple on Mount Gerizim for the Samaritans with whom he'd found refuge. The animosity of the Samaritans became more intense than ever, and they did all in their power to annoy the Jews.
They considered their own temple on Mount Gerizim superior to that at Jerusalem. They sacrificed a Passover, and wherever they were, they directed their worship toward the mountain, even long after its temple had fallen.
So the Samaritans in Jesus' day were a people distinct from the Judeans; though they had abandoned polytheism for a sort of ultra Mosaicism and their temple on Mount Gerizim had been destroyed by John Hyrcanus in 130BC, and the city of Samaria had been repeatedly destroyed, still preserved their nationality still worshipped from Shechem and their impoverished settlements toward their sacred hill, still retained their peculiar religion, and could not coalesce with the Judeans. The Jews reciprocated in their contempt for the Samaritans. Jewish renegades from time to time took refuge with the Samaritans who by degrees claimed Jewish blood. A claim not admitted by the Judahites.
This historical background explains the implications of Jews' insult. If the religious impersonators insulted our Lord to His face before they would expose the sins of their fellows and separate from those who were not of God. Won't their children despise His disciples in this day? As far as possible live in peace with all men, but be separated to God and His Word, and don't seek to befriend those whom God has set at enmity against you.
Speaking of Rome and her once Protestant harlot daughters who with Jewry will rule Lucifer's one world government until the consummation, Jesus said: "In her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all who were slain upon the earth" (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:6; 18:24).
They want you to unite with them against the Word as Judah united with the Edomites against the Word. They say we can all be called "Christians" whatever we believe, just as the Edomites and the Hebrews today are called "Jews." Isaiah 4:1 said, "In that day seven women shall take hold of one Man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by your Name, to take away our reproach".
I ask you, are these personal observations? Or the unchanging Word of God's holy prophets and apostles from Genesis to Revelation, and claims supported by the Talmud and the most eminent scholars of Jewry? bb980923.htm
