“History is His-story.”
Over time in my walk with the Lord Jesus, I’ve come to realize that when He said, “the scriptures speak of me”, He meant it in more ways than we have previously anticipated.
Very often we read the treasured scriptures as we would a magazine or a news paper, skimming through and reading our own premonitions into it. . . we easily lose touch with the message hidden within.
Today let me take you along the path of two brothers, Jacob and Esau. Within the famous story of this set of twins is embedded a typology of Jesus – the One who every scripture speaks of.
I need to apologize for posting this a day later than I usually do. There were many factors militating against my putting it up on Friday (yesterday). But thank God those factors have been overcome today.
In my last post, REDEMPTION – A Second Chance, I told you about the experience of heaven in Joshua Harris’ I Kissed Dating Goodbye. My prayer for you still holds true even today; that you find faith in the Lord Jesus today for a second chance.

Brad Lauwers was in the locker room, showering after a gruelling football workout, when he first noticed the lump. He bent down and fingered his ankle gently, cupping his hand around the swelling. He felt no pain or stiffness. “Perhaps it’s just some fluid,” he thought. “It will disappear in a few days.”
But the swelling didn’t disappear, and a month later Brad lay in a hospital bed awaiting amputation of his left leg. The lump turned out to be a malignant tumor that was sending runners out in several directions in Brad’s foot. The next day a surgeon removed Brad’s leg just inches below the knee.
