Thread: Danger of Profanity

  1. #1
    Text: GENESIS 27:30-40 “And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?” (Genesis 27:36).



    Esau, the elder of Isaac’s two sons, did his best at securing his father’s blessing when he went hunting so as to give his father a treat. Unluckily for him, his smarter younger brother had outwitted him, tricking their father into blessing him instead, before Esau could return from the bush.

    Esau had earlier trifled with an important issue when he ceded his birthright to his younger brother. When it mattered most, at the time of receiving his father’s blessing, he lost out. He had earlier given the birthright to Jacob in exchange for food when he was hungry. That Jacob was crafty did not exonerate Esau, nor did that swing the pendulum of sentiment in his favour. He had lost out even before the day he brought venison to his apparently disturbed father, who did not withdraw the blessings he had pronounced on Jacob (verse 33).

    Today, instances abound of people who throw overboard their consecration, holiness principle and lifestyle, watchfulness, sobriety, solemnity, even contrition because of offers of jobs, promotions, contracts, business transactions, opportunities to live abroad or quick fix in marriage. Many think they can pick up pieces of their Christian lives again after compromising to get what they thought they desperately wanted.

    Esau’s unfortunate case serves as a reminder and a warning today to all believers. To believers who think they can trivialize the things of eternal value, a warning has issued forth: “Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears” (Hebrews 12:16,17).

    What we gain by compromise we lose with dishonour
    With all my love. Harrison

    Thank you for posting this. I needed to be reminded.

    I receiveed this in an e-mail.

    Read only if you have time for God
    Let me tell you, make sure you read all the way to the bottom. I almost deleted this email but I was blessed when I got to the end







    God, when I received this e-mail, I thought...



    I don't have time for this... And, this is really inappropriate during work..







    Then, I realized that this kind of thinking is.... Exactly, what has caused lot of the problems in our world today.



    We try to keep God in church on Sunday morning...







    Maybe, Sunday night...







    And, the unlikely event of a midweek service.







    We do like to have Him around during sickness....







    And, of course, at funerals.







    However, we don't have time, or room, for Him during work or play...







    Because.. That's the part of our lives we think... We can, and should, handle on our own.







    May God forgive me for ever thinking...







    That. There is a time or place where..







    HE is not to be FIRST in my life.







    We should always have time to remember all HE has done for us..







    If, You aren't ashamed to do this...



    Please follow the directions.







    Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.'







    Not ashamed?







    Pass this on ONLY IF YOU MEAN IT!!







    Yes, I do Love God.







    HE is my source of existence and Savior.







    He keeps me functioning each and every day. Without Him, I will be nothing. But, with Christ, HE strengthens me. (Phil 4:13)



    This is the simplest test.







    If You Love God... And, are not ashamed of all the marvelous things HE has done for you...







    Send this to ten people and the person who sent it to you!



    Now do you have the time to pass it on?







    Make sure that you scroll through to the end.







    Easy vs. Hard







    Why is it so hard to tell the truth but Yet so easy to tell a lie?







    Why are we so sleepy in church but Right when the sermon is over we suddenly wake up?







    Why is it so easy to delete a Godly e-mail, but yet we forward all of the nasty ones?







    Of all the free gifts we may receive, Prayer is the very best one....



    There are no costs, but wonderful rewards... GOD BLESS!







    Notes: Isn't it funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.







    Isn't it funny how someone can say 'I believe in God' but still follow Satan (who, by the way, also 'believes' in God).







    Isn't it funny how you can send a thousand jokes through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing?







    Isn't it funny how when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it to them







    Isn't it funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me than what God thinks of me.







    I pray, for everyone who sends this to their entire address book, they will be blessed by God in a way special for them.







    And send it back to the person who sent it, to let them know that indeed it was sent out to many more.

    And one last thing... Jesus died for you. Please don't assume that you are going to heaven. Trust in Him to be your personal Savior. He is the only WAY, TRUTH, and LIFE!

    I agree and if I knew how to send this I would to 10 people.

    Remember I am still learning.

    I will ask my daughter to help or perhaps you can explain to it to me.

    Ms. Horton,
    Just take a few moments and read our daily bread.
