Pray for me

Esau is about to strive with God. We know he will hear me, but we don’t know how he will answer.

Whatever happens, it remains that the Lord is great and the Lord is good. Holy is his name, and worthy is the lamb!

Maybe do this later?

    If you are jealously guarding, defending, and growing your God-given inheritance, you aren’t an Edomite, Aeoli. The chief characteristic of Esau was that he didn’t respect his inheritance, so he lost it and couldn’t get it back. When Jews call Christians “Edomites”, you have to look past the fact that “Edomites” were fair game; Christians have indeed been pissing on their inheritance, valuing it lightly or not at all. The Jesuits raised the stealing of inheritances to a high art form. In all countries where people value their inheritance, Jews have been toothless.

    Where is your inheritance, Aeoli? Where is mine? Where are our acres? Where are our patriarchal rights and obligations? Thrown away by ancestors who were seduced by an infiltrated Church, taken away by kings and rulers who listened to Grim Wormtongue, Catholic priests who said don’t worry about the inheritance on earth, you have a better one in heaven. But Jesus said we are to be faithful stewards. Disregard your inheritance on earth without good cause, and what sort of inheritance will you really have in Heaven? Really?

      our inheritance is divine retribution by just taking one step to the side and watch the demise of our antagonists unfold, then there will be no one to oppose us taking back our birthright in less than a week, or, as Tex would say:

      “When I was growing up I don’t know how many times I heard “That is a problem our children will face.” These cowards are only beginning to realize it is also a problem they would face when they were too old, too weak and full of regrets about their foolishness in saying such stupid things when they were younger. They thought they’d be dead by now but all they have done is assure their retirement will occur in very interesting times, if you know what I mean. It is one thing to be running from a cannibal horde in your twenties and another thing altogether to try to hobble along in your seventies. These idiots imagined their grandchildren running from vicious cannibal enrichment squads and they were okay with that so it is really a matter of being hoisted by your own petard. There’s nothing funnier than a sixty year old secular atheist frantically trying to escape a huge savage mob of like-minded souls chasing him for barbecue. After all, we are nothing but meat and death is the end so why shouldn’t this old fellow throw himself on the grill for the greatest good for the greatest number? He is old and according to utilitarianism will taste best with chives and chicken salt. ”

      “No”, is the word of the future. If you are weak, you will say “Yes”, and invite the bastards back for another round of sapient boogaloo.

    I prayed that when you wrestle with God, you would hear his chuckle of approval.

    • Sunnybutt says:

      Amen to that. I’ve heard his chuckle of knowing sadness, saying, “fine sonny boy, you try that and report back,” and it’s not something I recommend to others. I pray that you have the wisdom to know the difference.

      • Aeoli Pera says:

        Honestly I think he kinda enjoys it, if you approach him like a young boy challenging his dad at hoops. So even though my feelings about the *thing* were strong, there’s an understanding that the wrestling is about my growth and a deeper relationship.

      • Texan TT says:

        Just hang out with him a lot. You learn the shepherds laugh along with his voice.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Not quite, but I felt he approved and was obviously being very gentle about the whole thing.

    Why do you identify as Esau? Did you sell your birthright for a mess of pottage?
    Also, it was Jacob that wrestled with God.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      >Why do you identify as Esau?

      Because I’m the older brother in my family, I’m covered with red hair, and I’m a gullible hunter-gatherer who’s unsuited for city life.

      >Did you sell your birthright for a mess of pottage?

      For a math degree. I’ll trade you my degree for a mess of pottage.

      >Also, it was Jacob that wrestled with God.

      Yes, that was the point.
