The Twin Timelines phenomenon, in which
ancient historical sequences in Scripture are recapitulated in a later time
period, presents us with scenarios which can seem to be implausible. The
present series has demonstrated how the chronological succession of power, as
well as the struggle over religion during the period of Ahab and Jezebel,
has been supernaturally repeated in recent political history in America. In our
last installment, we showed how Jehu’s ruse (in which he feigned support
for the priests of the Baalim and the Groves in
order to destroy them), anticipates Donald Trump’s overtures to corporate
Christian leaders in order to gain their support in his electoral campaign
against the left wing, which the believers also abhorred.
The concept that respected mainstream Christian leaders
could Prophetically Parallel the Prophets of Baal (and
their goddess worshiping counterparts the Prophets of the Groves), is
decidedly unpalatable to the majority of believers in the Church today. To
further complicate matters, we have also shown the Twin Timelines
worldview is hardly limited to the specific “script” in which Ahab
(anticipating the evil of Bill Clinton), is succeeded by Jezebel
(foreshadowing Hillary Clinton’s corrupt political apparatus), and their
collective evil is ultimately overturned by the unlikely outsider named Jehu
(who prefigured Donald Trump).
We have also observed how other historic figures in the Old
Testament parallel a much larger pattern at later points in time. An
excellent example of this is Esau, who shunned his eternal
inheritance as the chosen son of Isaac, in exchange for physical
comfort. The life of Esau prefigures a massive rebellion against
the LORD on the part of the Old Testament people of Israel, as
they opposed Yahweh’s ordained plan of mediating the light of God to the
Gentile nations. In the case of Esau, similar to the case of
Jehu/Trump, we see more than one rendition of the Temporal Recapitulation
The Old Testament clearly shows that God appointed the
family of Israel to shine His Holy light to the nations, as God moved to
retrieve that which was lost in the fall of mankind at the Garden of Eden.
“You only have I known of all the families of the
earth” (Amos 3:2).
Students of Scripture will recall that Esau
cared not for the enormous honour which was bestowed upon him through the
unmerited favor of being born the grandson of Abraham, who was
the father of faith. As the first born of Isaac and,
theoretically scheduled to become “Israel” even before his brother
Jacob was translated into that blessed role, Esau discards the
enormous opportunity. Anticipating the worst trade in history, Esau’s opportunistic
brother Jacob took advantage of a short term circumstance in which Esau
was so famished after a field trip, he traded a meal for his birthright.
“And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray
thee, with that same red pottage [which Jacob had prepared]; for I am
faint…And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau
said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright
do to me? Thus Esau despised his birthright” (Genesis
Obviously Esau could have prepared his own
meal, for the text tells us he “was a cunning hunter,” who was
known to bring home “venison,” so his short term discomfort (and
apparent impatience) to obtain a bowl of lentil soup was hardly worth something
as important as his inheritance. Further, his subsequent actions indicate his
self centered nature, as he ignored the path his parents advocated.
Eventually, Esau came to regret his decision, and he
intensely sought the blessing of his father Isaac, but it was already too late.
“And Esau hated Jacob because of the
blessing wherewith his father blessed him” (Genesis 27:41).
As the fortunes of Jacob (who becomes known as
Israel) increased, the Scriptures put forth the proposition that
the blessing which Jacob received from Isaac, was related to the authority the
LORD had granted to the family that God had chosen to be His people, under the promise
to Abraham that out of His “seed,” all the world would be blessed.
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that
curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”
As the two brothers Esau and Jacob’s lives progressed,
knowing that years earlier his grandfather Abraham had insisted that
Esau’s father Isaac marry within the Hebrew family, Esau
rebelled from the ways of his family, and married Hittite women,
to the great consternation of his parents.
“And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith
the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of
Elon the Hittite” (Genesis 26:34).
The account of Esau shows that his fortunes
consistently deteriorated, as he veered further and further from an honourable
course of action. For instance, after Jacob received the great blessing from
their father Isaac (who was on his deathbed), Esau became bitter
and even vowed to murder his brother. In fact, even before his father
Isaac went on to his eternal inheritance, the Word of God tells us that as the
consequences of his choices emerged, Esau’s bitterness increased, so he
intentionally defied his family, and sought to provoke them through even more
“When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him
away to Padan-aram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him
he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the
daughters of Canaan; And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not
Isaac his father; Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto
the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham’s
son” (Genesis 28:9)
Most Bible readers know that Esau was dubbed Edom
(which means red, a reference to the red pottage he obtained in exchange
for his birthright), and his many descendants became known as the nation of the
Edomites. The individual history of Esau/Edom Prophetically
Parallels the entire fate of the Edomites, and for many
centuries we see the Edomites in conflict with their near
relatives, the Israelites. We further see that, following the pattern of Esau,
the nation of the Edomites consistently tried to re-insert
themselves into the chosen family of God, clearly identified as Israel.
Late in the Old Testament history of the Southern branch of
Israel known as Judah (where we find the Israelite people
referred to as Jews), we find a branch of the Edomites were known as Idumaeans.
Some years before JESUS
CHRIST was born, an Idumaean military man named Antipater became
indispensable to the King of Judaea in Jerusalem, and he
ultimately seized the throne of what was left of Israel. The Northern Israelite
kingdom of Samaria had been destroyed centuries earlier by the Assyrians, and
the Idumaean dynasty of Antipater’s son Herod was the last
line of rulers which had long sought to politically maneuver their way back
into the family of Israel.
Seeking to reverse Esau’s tragic decision made over a
thousand years before, the Idumaean King Herod even
married a Judean princess to convince the Jews the Edomites should be
counted as Israelites. They complied with Moses’ requirement of male
circumcision, and compelled the Idumaeans to follow the commandments issued by
Moses. Herod’s marriage to a Jewish royal marks an event which
periodically occurs in the Twin Timelines, as we occasionally see
a Role Reversal in the Temporal Recapitulation.
Just as the Hebrew Esau diluted the sacred
family line of the chosen people by marrying Gentile women, Herod
the Gentile usurper married a Jewish royal to seek to strengthen his
illegitimate claim that he was a genuine member of the chosen people. The Herodian/Idumaean
controlled government in Jerusalem actually passed laws which proclaimed the
Idumaean/Edomites were to be counted as Jews – and they
even seized the ancestral land of Simon, one of the 12 Israelite tribes. Their
entire history Prophetically Paralleled the life of Esau, as they
tried to regain the lost blessing which passed to Jacob/Israel.
However, the Herodians also recapitulated the
original infraction of Esau, as King Herod sought to leaven the
Jew’s religion, by incorporating Gentile religious elements into the
Israelite’s Old Covenant with the LORD. To put it another way, the
ancient desire of Esau to retrieve his birthright position
facilitated a bitterness that marred the entire history of the Edomites,
and the New Testament speaks of it.
The New Testament cautions the redeemed sons and daughters
of God in Christ, concerning how circumstances sometime move against the
believer, and in this context it cites the story of Esau. As the
Christ rejecting Jews are no longer to be counted as the sons of God because of
Jesus (Prophetically Paralleling the shift of the blessing
from Esau to Jacob), a key passage in the book written
to the Christians of Hebrew descent, tells all believers not to
become bitter as the LORD corrects His children’s poor choices.
“If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with
sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?” (Hebrews 12:7).
As Esau was in disfavor with his father, he
resented his misfortune -- to the degree his actions were Prophetically
Paralleled by an entire nation of his descendants. In short, the
book of Hebrews cites the story of Esau as an example of
what not to do:
“Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau,
who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward,
when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected”
Ironically, the book of Hebrews is positively
filled with Prophetic Parallels, as the profound teaching
repeatedly uses analogy – and immediately after rehearsing the tale of Esau,
the author applies the Prophetic Parallels to physical Israel in
the Old Testament, and their successors Born Again Israel, in the
New Testament. As the Hebrews knew they were the mediator
between the LORD and the Gentile nations under the Old Covenant, they also knew
that God had chastised them for their historic apostasy.
“Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to
walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets. And he hath
confirmed his words, which he spake against us…by bringing upon us a
great evil; for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done
upon Jerusalem” (Daniel 9:10, 12).
Jesus Christ made it very clear that because
Old Testament Israel dishonoured the unmerited favor related to their birthright
as the chosen people, the LORD had determined to remove them from their
standing as the heirs of the salvation.
“Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall
be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits
thereof” (Matthew 21:43).
Thus, the Jewish Christians were being told in the epic
writing to the Hebrews, to remember that Esau’s futile
effort to regain the standing he had forfeited was tainted by bitterness, which
contributed to even more widespread consequences of a negative nature. Indeed,
the Hebrew prophets, voicing the heart of God, also categorically denounced the
defiance found in Esau, as he stubbornly resisted the chastising
of the LORD.
“I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and
his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness. Whereas Esau
saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places;
thus saith the Lord of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they
shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom
the Lord hath indignation for ever” (Malachi 1:3,4).
It is a critical article of the faith that we recognize that
“God is no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34), and through Christ,
He has opened heaven’s gates to people of faith from every nation,
“For [He] wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by [His]
blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation”
Thus, since the amazing grace of God, found in the New
Covenant of JESUS CHRIST,
does not love any Flesh and Blood people more than any other, and the
LORD redeems people from every nation, the opposite side of that
spectrum mandates the “indignation” of the LORD cannot fall upon
anyone (such as the Edomites) based on their Flesh and Blood heritage.
The Scriptures do, however, indicate that everlasting enmity with God is based
on Spiritual principles, so all Christians should be extremely cautious of
becoming Spiritual Edomites, which this particular Prophetic
Parallel reveals; but further explanation of this truth will have to
wait for the next installment of Twin Timelines.
