Christians disdain Esau for despising his birthright. Yet, by rejecting their identity as Israelites, they despise their own birthright as much as Esau did. May Yahweh hasten the day when today’s true Israelites come to appreciate their heritage and praise Him for it. More importantly, may He use this knowledge to cause many Israelites to seek Him by way of the blood-atoning sacrifice of Yahshua the Christ.*
*Mark 16:15-16, Acts 2:36-41, 22:1-16, Romans 6:3-4, Galatians 3:26-27 and 1 Peter 3:21 should be studied when considering what our response should be to Yahshua’s gospel call.146
Many gentiles have been misidentified as non-Israelites, and today’s Jews have been misidentified as Israelites, resulting in the theft of one of the greatest inheritances of all time. However, as the rightful heirs of Jacob Israel awaken, they will arise and claim their inheritance:
And he [Yahweh] will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord Yahweh will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for Yahweh hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is Yahweh; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation. - Isaiah 25:7-9
What has been concealed for far too long is being revealed. The cast of characters in this biblical saga have now been correctly identified and corroborated by the testimony of the inspired voice of the prophets, by history and by archaeology. The birthright and the blessing are now secure with those who are willing to embrace their identity.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “Our eyes are holden that we cannot see things that stare us in the face, until the hour arrives when the mind is ripened; then we behold them, and the time when we saw them not is like a dream.”147 May Yahweh hasten the day when the veil is totally removed and the errors that have been so long embraced are but a dream!
It is incumbent upon us who know the truth to share this information with others who have not yet been blessed with the knowledge of who they are:
For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. - Romans 8:19 NASV
May Yahweh grant us the courage to take part in this great revelation, which, Lord willing, will result in many sons of Israel becoming sons of Yahweh!
