As we find so many things on this earth to be happy we also find enough issues of separation in the present world today.
From the ancient time, may be from the primitive age men’s unending search for the real objects,real relationship and real love has not ended yet.
We all suffer a lot whenever someone offers fake love or artificial objects to us.Sometimes we don’t accept it but there are straight forward people who objects or protests such attitudes.
We love to be happy with whatever real objects we can afford otherwise we remain alone, a solitary life is far better than an artificial or fake love affair.
We are the most intelligent creatures on earth hence we understand very well that love for artificial things don’t satiate our thirst.It is transitory, when a fake object is destroyed or spoilt we feel bad so we avoid anything that is fake.
When the person whom we love dearly abandons us we find life miserable.Sometimes we curse such people.
When we cheat someone or bluff someone we prepare ourselves to be cheated in the similar way.
Please read the full texts to understand the consequence of falsehood.(It is a bit lengthy but worth reading)
27 When Isaac was old and his eyes were so weak that he could no longer see,he called for Esau his older son and said to him, “My son.”
“Here I am,” he answered.
2 Isaac said, “I am now an old man and don’t know the day of my death.3 Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me. 4 Prepare me the kind of tasty food I like and bring it to me to eat, so that I may give you my blessing before I die.”
5 Now Rebekah was listening as Isaac spoke to his son Esau. When Esau left for the open country to hunt game and bring it back,6 Rebekah said to her son Jacob, “Look, I overheard your father say to your brother Esau, 7 ‘Bring me some game and prepare me some tasty food to eat, so that I may give you my blessing in the presence of the Lord before I die.’8 Now, my son, listen carefully and do what I tell you: 9 Go out to the flock and bring me two choice young goats, so I can prepare some tasty food for your father, just the way he likes it.10 Then take it to your father to eat, so that he may give you his blessing before he dies.”
11 Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, “But my brother Esau is a hairy man while I have smooth skin. 12 What if my father touches me? I would appear to be tricking him and would bring down a curse on myself rather than a blessing.”
13 His mother said to him, “My son, let the curse fall on me. Just do what I say; go and get them for me.”
14 So he went and got them and brought them to his mother, and she prepared some tasty food, just the way his father liked it.15 Then Rebekah took the best clothes of Esau her older son,which she had in the house, and put them on her younger son Jacob. 16 She also covered his hands and the smooth part of his neck with the goatskins.17 Then she handed to her son Jacob the tasty food and the bread she had made.
18 He went to his father and said, “My father.”
“Yes, my son,” he answered. “Who is it?”
19 Jacob said to his father, “I am Esau your firstborn.I have done as you told me. Please sit up and eat some of my game,so that you may give me your blessing.”
20 Isaac asked his son, “How did you find it so quickly, my son?”
“The Lord your God gave me success,” he replied.
21 Then Isaac said to Jacob, “Come near so I can touch you, my son, to know whether you really are my son Esau or not.”
22 Jacob went close to his father Isaac,who touched him and said, “The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau.” 23 He did not recognize him, for his hands were hairy like those of his brother Esau;so he proceeded to bless him. 24 “Are you really my son Esau?” he asked.
“I am,” he replied.
25 Then he said, “My son, bring me some of your game to eat, so that I may give you my blessing.”
Jacob brought it to him and he ate; and he brought some wine and he drank. 26 Then his father Isaac said to him, “Come here, my son, and kiss me.”
27 So he went to him and kissed him. When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes,he blessed him and said,
“Ah, the smell of my son
is like the smell of a field
that the Lord has blessed.
28 May God give you heaven’s dew
and earth’s richness—
an abundance of grain and new wine.
29 May nations serve you
and peoples bow down to you.
Be lord over your brothers,
and may the sons of your mother bow down to you.
May those who curse you be cursed
and those who bless you be blessed.”
30 After Isaac finished blessing him, and Jacob had scarcely left his father’s presence, his brother Esau came in from hunting. 31 He too prepared some tasty food
Jacob Marries Leah and Rachel
After Jacob had stayed with him for a whole month, 15 Laban said to him, “Just because you are a relative of mine, should you work for me for nothing? Tell me what your wages should be.”
16 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah,and the name of the younger was Rachel.17 Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful.18 Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, “I’ll work for you seven years in return for your younger daughter Rachel.”
19 Laban said, “It’s better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay here with me.” 20 So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.
21 Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife. My time is completed, and I want to make love to her.”
22 So Laban brought together all the people of the place and gave a feast. 23 But when evening came, he took his daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob, and Jacob made love to her. 24 And Laban gave his servant Zilpah to his daughter as her attendant.
25 When morning came, there was Leah! So Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me?I served you for Rachel, didn’t I? Why have you deceived me?”
Jacob bluffed his father and brother Esau for the blessings. His uncle Laban bluffed him by offering her elder daughter Leah in place of Rachel for his rigorous seven years of service to his uncle Laban. (His own mother’s brother) Jacob had to offer his service for another seven years to have beautiful Rachel as his wife.
Sometimes we work for years and remain unsuccessful.
Now we realize the real issue.Don’t we?Whenever we bluff a child of God we forsake the Lord,he never does it. We are responsible for our own debacles.
Thank you very much.Take care.
