Spiritual Warfare Comes With Every Promise God Has Promised You!
Many times the enemy will put us in situations that we feel is important to us, not realizing that there is NO temptation taken you such as common unto man that God will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able to endure, (1 Corinthians 10:13) Don’t take the bait!
Esau was a man that was a hunter in the fields, well able to kill and to eat any animal he wanted, but yet he also loved the physical things that he could see with his flesh to kill, eat and when it looked as though he was faint and about to die he took the first thing he saw to sooth his appetite!
Jacob no doubt watched and waited like a hawk for the perfect opportunity to steal what he saw was a diamond of great value from Esau; which was , Esau’s birthright!
Sometimes the enemy around us can see what we ourselves cannot see, and because we lack discernment, the enemy will swoop in and steal what we ourselves do not value!
Not even taking thought to the consequences of what would happen if Esau took Jacob up on his offer to sell his birthright, Esau gave it willingly!
He was more concerned with his belly than he was with his inheritance of his children and what would happen to the next generation!
All he cared about was himself and his belly. The vision and the promises of what could be for tomorrow was of no value to him because of his present circumstances!
People just because you cannot see the value in what God has for you or the gold on the inside of you don’t mean you should be desperate to take the first thing coming!
Desperation*, pressure and frustration causes us to make rash decisions! Satan is the one who pressures us to make decisions; The Holy Ghost is a perfect gentleman and he always gives us a choice and the opportunity to seek God beforehand!
*According to Webster’s dictionary: Desperation is a state of despair, typically one which results in rash or extreme behavior. In addition, it is a loss of hope, surrender to despair, state of hopelessness leading to rashness.
All of which Esau was!
People have gotten married, took jobs, given up children, family, made expensive purchase, left ministry and a host of other things all in the name of desperation!
Proverbs 3:5-7 states, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.”
Esau failed to acknowledge God for help but instead he took it upon himself to act upon his flesh to fill up his belly!
Not realizing that God was able to supply his every need! Jacob was more concerned with the promises of God but Esau the things of the flesh!
Anytime we are driven by sight, flesh and pressure to make decisions that are based upon what we think; instead of believe led by Holy Spirit we are asking for nothing but trouble which is what happened to Esau!
Did God know Esau would give up His birthright? Yes! But, God being a just and merciful God always gives us a way to escape if we would acknowledge him first!
Esau never once took time out to ask God for help he just willingly gave up his birthright to Jacob without any reservations whatsoever!
Something worth having is worth fighting for, people. Some people are like Esau, they run from the warfare where as Jacob ran to it, because he knew what was at stake!
And, this is why he inherited the blessings! Many folks who are spiritual parents and mentors have told you the good things they like about you like Issac did Esau but they are not like Rebekah who was willing to fight for what God had placed on the inside of her son Jacob!
And, maybe that is why The LORD told Rebekah that the eldest son would serve the youngest, because he knew Rebekah would see to it that she would war after the promises and to see that it would be birthed into fruition?
After all, God does work in mysterious ways!
See: Genesis 25

PoweRFUL msg well said. I read it delivers positive elements. AMEN
Amen! God bless!
Thank you so much for this post our timing is not God’s timing!
This word truly blessed me it made me to think about how we are so quick to give up on our dreams and our visions all because we do not want the spiritual warfare! Esau was all about his flesh but Jacob was about the promises of God. He and his mother may have went about it the wrong way but in the end God still blessed them because they were both hungry after the promise some folks are not hungry enough and this is why God passes them up!
Thank you woman of God this was truly a new enlightenment to me I never saw it on this fashion and I have read this text many times
Awesome. Thank you.
I would have to agree with brother Chris based off of my personal knowledge and revelation on the matter and also based off of personal experience. I will also say that I believe (God correct me if I am wrong) that we go from glory to glory and if we genuinely have the Holy Spirit as our teacher then He will lead us into all truth. I believe that there is milk and meat to truth and brother Chris has the meat from God on the subject. HE IS FAITHFUL TO COMPLETE THE WORKS HE STARTS IN US. God has just delivered a new level of glory (meat) for us to learn from. Praise be to Your Holy name God and thank You Holy Spirit for leading us into all truth. Brother Chris I feel led to say that our sister has received milk and now meat but we all start off with milk and that doesnt make us wrong it just means God is still maturing us… I have learned that I am no better then someone else because I have been matured in an area they are not, bet your bottom that the same person is more mature in another area then myself. Humility will best deliver a new revelation. IRON SHARPENS IRON. We are not supposed to argue over the word of God but bring revelation and correction from a heart of Love. God bless you both in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We are not enemies. Our enemy is the one trying to stop us from receiving the truth. But greater is He family of God! The name above all names JESUS!
Desperation comes about because God chooses not to intervene of the behalf of his children. So many people cherry pick the Bible because they are unwilling or unable to accept the fact that God does what he wants regardless of what mans opinion is. Satan cannot create, he can only duplicate what God has created. If you believe that, then you must accept that anger, hate, rage, murder, all come from God. God encompasses both love and hate and uses them how he chooses. We are his creation yet he blesses and curses who he wants. May you truly understand what is, rather then trying to rationalize and make accretions for what you know very little about.
