 “Jacob I have loved, but Esau have I hated” as portrayed in the above painting, the apostle Paul referred to from the portion in book of Malachi in order to prove that there is a divine election even before people were born and before they did good or evil (Romans 9:11-13). What does this election really mean from this prophetic perspective?

These words actually reveal a historic reality not concerning two individuals but rather about two nations – Israel and Edom. The Jewish people and the Edomite people consciously selected dissimilar ways of life. Consequently, they had to bear the heavenly “reward” for their willful choice.


The Remnant

Israel’s position as a remnant is particularly observed among those connected to the 144,000 of the twelve Jewish tribes that remained faithful to the Lord Yeshua until their last day (Rev. 7:4-8). This national...

    You need to be aware of three major stumbling blocks in the NT. God placed them there intentionally. The three land mines are Matthew, Acts, and Hebrews. Fundamentalists break their necks in Hebrews, Charismatics in Acts, and Catholics in Matthew. These three books are transitional books. In Matthew we are going from the OT to the NT. In Acts we are going from Israel to the Church. And in Hebrews we are going from the Church Age into the Tribulation. These have always been the areas most professors and commentators stumble. Thankfully, the solution is simple. Whenever you find a a statement in Matthew, Acts, or Hebrews that does not doctrinally match the statements found in the Pauline Epistles, it is not a statement aimed at a Christian in the Church Age.

    Yes, you can find spiritual truths for a Christian in Matthew. You can find devotional nuggets for a Christian in Acts. You can even find some Pauline doctrine in those books. But if the statement contradicts what Paul wrote from Romans to Philemon, then you are in the wrong pew; reading someone else’s mail, if you will. Watch your step, The Holy Scriptures are not to be trifled with…
    So no, we can not lose our salvation in this Age. But for those in the Age to come, absolutely they could. Hope this is helpful. Either way, it’s all true. 2 Tim 2:15
