The Last Will & Testament of Christ
Jacob I loved but Easu I hated.
Malachi 1: 2 “I have loved you,” says the Lord. “But you ask, ‘How have you loved us?’ “Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the Lord. “Yet I have loved Jacob, 3 but Esau I have hated, and I have turned his hill country into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals.”4 Edom may say, “Though we have been crushed, we will rebuild the ruins.” (Esau begat the Edomite Clan, Edom means “Red”)
But this is what the Lord Almighty says: “They may build, but I will demolish. They will be called the Wicked Land, a people always under the wrath of the Lord. 5 You will see it with your own eyes and say, ‘Great is the Lord—even beyond the borders of Israel!’
Romans 9: 6 It is not as though God’s word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel. 7 Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham’s children. On the contrary, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”[b]8 In other words, it is not the children by physical descent who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring. 9 For this was how the promise was stated: “At the appointed time I will return, and Sarah will have a son.”[c]
10 Not only that, but Rebekah’s children were conceived at the same time by our father Isaac. 11 Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad—in order that God’s purpose in election might stand: 12 not by works but by him who calls—she was told, “The older will serve the younger.” 13 Just as it is written: “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”
As we venture deeper into the vaults of God our Father as His sons, ancient family truths are being unveiled before our very eyes. We started from the Outer Courts of Adoption, to The Most Holy Place of Transformation and further into the Holies of Holies of Maturation. The continuous journey from glory to glory has marked us for the high call in Christ as Sons. In the last decade the message of maturity in Sonship, the fellowship of Spiritual Families and the relational dyad of Fathers and Sons had reached its apogee, in Kingdom culture. The last 2 years of 2020 and 2021 resulted in a Global Pandemic that brought entire Nations to a complete shutdown. Economies failing, the death toll rising, leaders teetering on total meltdown and confusion. In the midst of all of this chaos, the apostate religious Church began haemorrhaging. Like the women in the Bible she lacked the ability to incubate seed and bring it to full term because she is prostituting herself to the World systems, Babylon. The Body of Christ however grew ever stronger. Relationships between Fathers and Sons could be sustained because of the giving of the heart. Meeting were not the valid reason for fellowship anymore especially when the Government passed Laws against Religious gatherings, curfews, and mask wearing and mandatory vaccinations for International Travel. Those who chose to disregard these Laws in defiance as “Faith in God” during this pandemic, suffered serious loss of lives. Religious rhetoric and vain saying could not stop what God had permitted in the earth. Many Prophetic Christians prophesied that this pandemic would not come near their Houses, in vain, thereby casting a dark shadow on the prophetic authenticity. They failed to move the hand of God, through mass prayers, fasting and acts of religious stupidity. Nevertheless they still remained blind to the Spirit and just picked up from where they left, to resuscitate this Religious System once again. It’s an exercise of futility in shifting the furniture of the Titanic right? This perspective is not what is largely accepted among mainstream Church culture but the writing is on the wall and this system has been weighed in the scale of justice and found wanting.
The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof. Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. Only sons inherit from their Father. God the Father wants to pass on to his Family the Estate under His control in Christ, which are the new Heavens and the new Earth for righteous rule and management. This current epoch of time under heaven is for the refining of the Harvest of Sons of the Kingdom. We understand that there are “Wheat and Tares” growing side by side, and will only be separated up until the days of harvest. Harvest is not a single event in time. Ask any farmer he will confirm that harvest takes time. First fruit are harvested the earliest and there are many more harvest periods in between as fruit comes to maturity, until all the fruit has been plucked. Then there is a phase called pruning, then a turning of the soil and the addition of fertilizers and a period of rest before seasons change and the conditions are favourable again for a new crop to come forth.
As a Father, God deposited these principals in scripture that should become the foundation of life itself. The possession of land and transferring of these lands to your lineage, ensures the preservation of a culture. The First born sons primary aim is to preserve the Estate for the future heirs. Wealthy Families like The Oppenheimer’s, Rothschild’s, Windsor’s, Johnson’s and the De Beers understand this principle. They have amassed lands, gold, precious stones, art work, ancient valuable relics and treasures. They strategically build and control National Museum’s that receive these treasures as donations, which allows them to avoid being taxed on them but is still credit its value to their Estate in stocks and bonds. This huge wealth is ceded to a Family Trust and the Trustees of the Trust, which are usually the oldest Uncle, Aunt or siblings that are governed by Fiduciary Duties which mandates them to manage and account for this wealth until the time for distribution to the beneficiaries. If any beneficiary of the Family goes out of control by lavishing himself in riotous living and parties, the Trustees can shut of his cash flow and restrain his behaviour by veto power and agreement with the other Trustees.
The Patriarchal accounts in the O.T highlighted a primacy concern on the heart of God the Father, which is the preservation of the Estate of Christ and everlasting inheritance of the commonwealth of the Kingdom. "Jacob, have I loved but Esau I have hated", communicates the seriousness of birth right, inheritance and prophetic blessing through the laying on of hands, in the eyes of God. The utter discontented actions of God towards a son who handles these matters frivolously and with contempt is evident in his prophetic declaration over Esau. In returning to the original intent of God in making man to include him into His family, we also must pay close attention to the responsibility of a mature Firstborn son. Progeny is paramount on the heart of the Father. We can forfeit our Firstborn privilege if we do not treat this matter with weighted concern and total obedience.
The End of the Age is marked by a "great falling away". "Falling away" means gradually departing from the "Will and Intent of God" and ignoring the standard set by Christ the Son. Only mature sons inherit and the one who is most like the Father. The excitement of the message of Sonship must give way to accommodate the more critical concerns on the Father's heart. Sons must begin to grow in the understanding of terms like dynasty, heirlooms, birth right, Kingdom culture, preservation of lineage, returning to your Father’s House and bloodline. The end will be a Holy Nation of spirits of righteous men made perfect in love. Tribes, Clans, Families and Households made up of Fathers and Sons in One Holy Nation. God the Father is a Nation Builder.
Let’s get more insight into this matter by looking at Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob and Esau from the scriptures. Genesis 24; 1-4 Abraham was now very old, and the Lord blessed him in every way. 2 He said to the senior servant in his household, the one in charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh. 3 I want you to swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and the God of earth, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I am living, 4 but will go to my country and my own relatives and get a wife for my son Isaac.”
To “put your hand under my thigh” is the Hebrew word “Yarek” it refers to his thigh, loin and euphemistically meant that the servant was to take a hold of his genitals and swear. By so doing he was swearing by the man’s foundation or his source of life. Abraham would not permit a Canaanite women into his bloodline or into his Estate. This was the standard for the sons of God that they were not allowed to take foreign women as their wives. God the Father made a Covenant with Abram in Genesis 15 and Abraham was keeping his end of the agreement. The servant now became a shareholder and a “Sent Servant” to the Covenant between Abraham and God. Nothing was left to chance, guarding the posterity of the Family bloodline was part of the mandate of a Patriarch. The continuing expansion of the Family name was very important to the Patriarchs. Strict guideline for those who can be included into this Family was given.
Contrary to incomplete theology Rebecca was not favouring one boy over the other, because Jacob was mummy’s boy. No! Rebecca was acting according to the prophetic word given to her by God, “that the younger will rule over the older” she began to war for the prophetic Word over her Sons. She was not merely favouring Jacob as we so simply understand. Isaac had no knowledge of this prophesy and continued to advocate for the firstborn privilege and rite of passage for his son Easu. The news about two Nations wrestling in their mother’s womb would play out in everyday life in the Homestead. Easu sold his birth right to his brother for a bowl of lentil stew and thereby activated the timing of God. This began the unfolding of events that would see the destiny of a Nation come into fruition. Timing was everything and the record gives the conditions for the exact time for the next generation to receive their blessing. The scripture records the physical aging condition of the old Father Isaac. Firstly his eye sight had grown dim. This is very important to know because it should indicate to us that when Fathers lose their corporate vision for the House of God, when it becomes clouded by religious practice causing cataracts, it’s time to pass on the baton to the next generation of sons. We know the story of Rebecca getting Jacob to kill two small goats to prepare the meal for Jacob. She also covered him with the skins of these animals to make Jacob feel hairy like Esau. This is also exactly what God the Father did to Adam and Eve after they sinned. He clothes them with the skins of the animal sacrifice. In clothing them this way, it pointed to the shadow and type of Christ the Lamb that would die and re-clothe us in sonship. Everything that Rebecca did had significance and purpose. We should take note that there is vital deposit on the mothers of children regarding their prophetic purpose. We must encourage mothers to prophesy over their children alongside their Fathers. We must restore this ancient tradition back to the Household, when it’s time for children to be dedicate to the Lord. This is the responsibility of the parents to do this because the children have been designated to them not the Pastor.
The story continues as we observe the “sup-planter” manoeuvre and activate the plan of his mother. Old Isaac had to use his other natural sense of touch, smell and sound to recognise his son. It’s the responsibility of spiritual fathers to know what each son sounds like in the Spirit, (their utterances) what they smell like in the Spirit (their sacrificial life) and what they feel like in the Spirit (their righteous character). This is the necessary and critical properties between a Father and Son relationship. This level of intimacy and love is non-existent in a Clergy/Laity relationship or in a Pastor/Congregation relationship present in the current structure in the Christian religion of Church. In the natural, Jacob was doing everything wicked and crafty to steal what did not belong to him. This man dares to get everything by deception and manipulation. How does God love this kind of person? Fortunately the Justice of God, His Righteousness and Sovereignty must surpass our domestic point of view, in order to gain a deeper and clear perspective of what matters to Him.
What is the primary purpose of a Father who also is God? It is to build a Nation of Spiritual Sons into spiritual family, to multiply the seed of Christ in each of them, to bring them to spiritual maturity, so that they can continue in the Family business and to secure the righteous bloodline from cross contamination of this world, called Babylon. To rule as Kings over both the new Heavens and the new Earth. This Wife of Christ from above is required to be chaste, love only one husband, rule over her Household virtuously, be submitted to her Husband, never to draw attention to herself, seeking only her husband’s pleasure, beautiful yet humble, private, sober and just. While the Harlot of Babylon, is drunk on the blood of the religious, she stands in the corner of the street wooing her clientele to touch her bosom, her thighs and kiss her dripping lips. She can have has many men as she desires in one night and she is faithful to neither of them. It’s their money that she coverts. She seeks to give one night of seductive pleasure in a dimly lit room so that she can steal his valuables (authority) while he is sleeping. Why would any Father want a wife like this women for his Firstborn son? Doing so opens the door to evil falling on your entire Tribe which can, over time reduce them to vagabonds. We witnessed this kind of downfall when Judah went into Tamar in
Gen 38: 14 -18. She requested that Judah give her his Signet Ring (Power) and His Tribal Staff (Authority).
Lamentations 5 Message Bible. 5 1-22 “Remember, God, all we’ve been through.
Study our plight, the black mark we’ve made in history. Our precious land has been given to outsiders, our homes to strangers. Orphans we are, not a father in sight, and our mothers no better than widows. We have to pay to drink our own water. Even our firewood comes at a price. We’re nothing but slaves, bullied and bowed, worn out and without any rest. We sold ourselves to Assyria and Egypt just to get something to eat. Our parents sinned and are no more, and now we’re paying for the wrongs they did. Slaves rule over us; there’s no escape from their grip. We risk our lives to gather food in the bandit-infested desert. Our skin has turned black as an oven, dried out like old leather from the famine. Our wives were raped in the streets in Zion, and our virgins in the cities of Judah. They hanged our princes by their hands, dishonoured our elders. Strapping young men were put to women’s work, mere boys forced to do men’s work. The city gate is empty of wise elders. Music from the young is heard no more. All the joy is gone from our hearts. Our dances have turned into dirges. The crown of glory has toppled from our head. Woe! Woe! Would that, we’d never sinned! Because of all this we’re heartsick; we can’t see through the tears. On Mount Zion, wrecked and ruined, jackals pace and prowl. And yet, God, You’re sovereign still, Your throne intact and eternal. So why do you keep forgetting us? Why dump us and leave us like this? Bring us back to you, God—we’re ready to come back. Give us a fresh start. As it is, you’ve cruelly disowned us. You’ve been so very angry with us.”
We can only lament about our current condition when we realise what we lost by our own ignorance and disobedience. God hates a man who does not value His values, who does not understand how important Family is to Him. Maturity in spiritual matters is not organising huge events for people to receive from God, neither is it being renown on social media and with great followings. Maturity demands that you refuse to handle these Family heirlooms, inheritance, blessings, with the attitude of an orphan and the behaviour of a slave.
Thank you all for your precious greeting and well wishes, gifts, prayers on my 50th Birthday. I truly believe that I have entered my Jubilee, a restoration of all that was lost for me personally and for the Household corporately. This is just my first writing as it was pressing on my Spirit to uncover this understanding to all of us. I love you more each time I think about you all, you make my joy complete.
