Genesis Teaches Tension: Hater Genesis 27:41-46
Genesis 27:41 Now Esau hated Jacob.
Genesis 27:34 As soon as Esau heard the words of his father, he cried out with an exceedingly great and bitter cry and said to his father, “Bless me, even me also, O my father!” … 36b Then he said, “Have you not reserved a blessing for me?”
Genesis 27: 35 But he said, “Your brother came deceitfully, and he has taken away your blessing.” … 37 Isaac answered and said to Esau, “Behold, I have made him lord over you, and all his brothers I have given to him for servants, and with grain and wine I have sustained him. What then can I do for you, my son?” 38 Esau said to his father, “Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me, even me also, O my father.” And Esau lifted up his voice and wept.
Genesis 27:39 Then Isaac his father answered and said to him: “Behold, away from the fatness of the earth shall your dwelling be, and away from the dew of heaven on high. 40 By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother; but when you grow restless you shall break his yoke from your neck.”
Genesis 6:5 The L ORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 8:21 And when the L ORD smelled the pleasing aroma, the L ORD said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground because of man, for the intention of man’s heart is evil from his youth.
“It seems better to affirm that God causes all things that happen, but that he does so in such a way that he somehow upholds our ability to make willing, responsible choices, choices that have real and eternal results, and for which we are held accountable. Exactly how God combines his providential control with our willing and significant choices Scripture does not explain to us.” Wayne Grudem
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Philippians 1:6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
