The story of Isaac’s twin is a call to order to all who will want to trade their right, of any sort, with pleasure of any sort, using their mouths, by their words.
Esau loved hunting. Jacob preferred staying indoors. Esau came back hungry, met Jacob preparing a soup and beckoned on Jacob to do so, ‘make I chop small before I kpeme.’
Jacob understands his brother Esau. A man that doesn’t care about his right. Of any sort, remember?
He has studied him and written him off as someone whose weakness is his concern for what he has. Jacob studies people for a living.
Jacob gave Esau the template of the deal: make an exchange: take my right, give me yours.
Esau, thought, what is ‘Right’ (Destined Future) if I die because of ‘Hunger’ (Waiting for the right time).
Jacob, in his mind, ‘Nothing to you, means a lot to me.’
Esau, willingly, made the exchange and everything that belongs to him, present and the future, became Jacobs. Everything that answers and will answer to Esau had a new leadership, Jacob’s empire. The Cosmos recognised a new leader. Their course changed to Jacob’s.
Esau, ‘Na food I chop, na mouth I use, na talk I talk – e no mean anything. Las Las, I go dey alright.’
Blessing day was approaching, but, he gave in to the tricks played by the season. Be sensitive.
Isaac called his son Esau to go and get him something special that he may eat, bless him, ’cause he may die soon.
Esau, got ready, zoomed to the country of free food, the forest.
Mother Rebecca, eavesdropping Queen, master of event swung into action.
‘Jacob, look at what I heard. This and that will this and that and this and that will this and that.’ Mother Rebecca said.
Jacob, knows his mother. She can’t give him false details. He studies people for a living, remember?
Rebecca, thought, an opportunity comes. Maybe once. ‘If I perish, I perish.’ She was in charge of the decorations for the set event. She even made the attire to be used.
Don’t blame them. The exchange has been made already. The blessing answers to anyone who receives the Key. Esau gave his consent, remember? His WORDS sent the birds on an errand, remember?
Isaac, felt something was wrong, yet he didn’t find out. How could he. Everything was answering to the trade, remember?
He blessed him. Deal? Signed, Sealed and Sent: ‘go prepare the future, the king is come.’
He received the blessing, the key, the consciousness of WORDS permeated his being.
‘WHATEVER I DO, I EXCEL. ANYTHING I ENGAGE, I SUCCEED. I AM BLESSED.’
Thoughts like that came upon him, they made their abode in him. Why? He has come of the full knowledge that he is Blessed. He has the RIGHT!
MORAL OF THE STORY.
Be careful of what you say when you are in desperate need of something. Your words are powerful. Your tongue is deadly.
Be careful of what you say concerning your self. Your words are keys to everything on Earth. You create with your words, you destroy with your words.
GOD created the world with the WORD of his Mouth.
Always say positive things about your self. Even though everything seems to be wrong, keep saying the right things. The Spirits respect your words.
