Rome – Resetting the Stage
2,000 years ago Rome ruled the House of Judah and the Samaritans with an iron fist. Israel then made the grave mistake as it is doing now; made a covenant with Rome supposedly to bring peace and safety to the region. However, Israel fail victim to the devious plot of Rome and became a conquered nation by making an alliance with its greatest enemy – the descendants of Esau.
This age old feud between Esau and Jacob has always started the same and will end as usual with Israel being the victor. More than 4,000 years ago Jacob deceived Esau in order to get his brothers birthright, and though cunning in his way of doing this he still managed to find favor in the sight of God for this devious act. Esau on the other hand despised his birthright until he lost it. Then he wanted to kill Jacob for stealing his birthright.
The battle too has followed much the same theme, only time has changed the scene. When Jacob was moved in his heart by God to return home to Canaan (Modern Day Israel) the land God had sworn to give to Abraham and his descendants his brother Esau armed himself and his men intent on killing his brother Jacob. Jacob tried in vain to purchase peace with Esau offering him gifts of every sort. Then Jacob fearing for his life prayed all night until he met God and wrestled with His Angel refusing to release Him until He blessed Jacob. In so doing Jacob’s name was changed to Israel – a Prince with God.
The alliance that the House of Judah had made with Rome 2,000 years ago was once again forcing the Jewish people then to seek the Face of God for deliverance from the death threats of Esau. Israel had some faithful descendants who wrestled with God for the blessing in return God sent His only Son to deliver them from Esau. Those who believed that Yashua (Jesus) was Messiah to them gave He power to become sons and daughters of God – Princes and Princesses.
Now we come to the final show down and the Children of Israel have been moved by God to return to their Homeland only to find Esau (Rome) in the way. Neither has Esau (Rome) lost the jealousy nor the hatred he has had for his brother Jacob the past 4000 years. Esau has become far more cunning in his ways of revenge but his tactics are much the same. To God’s displeasure as it was with Abraham and Sarah, he still has chosen to court the Arabic nations even creating Islam in the process – one of his many wives.
Even though Israel has made it back to their homeland, with the help of Esau I might add, Israel still is governed by fear. Modern day Israel once again is trying to make a covenant with Esau, Rome, with hopes that they will be secure from their Arabic enemies. So the politicians of Israel lavish gifts at the feet of Rome and works hard at appeasing Rome’s lovers (The United States and The European Union) franticly trying to come up with a solution that may bring peace. However Esau, will never make true peace as he and his descendants have shown for the past 4,000 years. No, Israel too will wrestle with God very soon and in one night she will be victorious!
