In Chapter 33, Jacob was dreading with GODly Fear, that Esau would have hostile intentions towards HIM and his family, because of JACOB'S past "Self Preserving Misdeeds" done to his Brother ESAU (the BirthRight Blessing).

And Jacob was so wrong. As verse 33:3- 4 below shows.

Genesis 33:1  And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men.

Esau having 400 of his men riding with him, indicates that after 20 years, Esau has become a Great Man that has prospered sufficiently.

And Jacob divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.

 Genesis 33:2 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.

Genesis 33:3 And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.

Genesis 33:4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.

 I assure You,  Within both their Hearts, each of them reminded the Other of their parents Isaac and Rebekah, and their forefather Abraham with much weeping tears.

Genesis 33:5 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who [are] those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.

Genesis 33:6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.

Genesis 33:7 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves.

Genesis 33:8 And he said, What [meanest] thou by all this drove which I met? And he said, [These are] to find grace in the sight of my lord.

Genesis 33:9 And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast unto thyself.

Genesis 33:10 And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me.

Genesis 33:11 Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took [it].

Genesis 33:12 And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before thee.

Genesis 33:13 And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the children [are] tender, and the flocks and herds with young [are] with me: and if men should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.

Genesis 33:14 Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Seir.

Genesis 33:15 And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee [some] of the folk that [are] with me. And he said, What needeth it? (what for?) let me find grace in the sight of my lord.

Genesis 33:16 So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir.

Genesis 33:17 And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made booths for his cattle:

therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.

Abraham called his GOD "Lord," and Isaac Feared GOD. And both Esau and Jacob inherited that consciousness awareness to Worship the Creator GOD. It's evident that Awareness to Fear/Worship GOD lied Dormant within each of their Hearts in their younger days.  Until it was stirred up in each of them at GOD's appointed time for each of them individually.

First Jacob, when heading off to go to Laban's place to get a wife, and ended up working 20  hard years for Laban, who had an Extreme Elite Jacob Mindset. The evidence of that: Gen 31:38- 42 below.

Genesis 31:38  This twenty years [have] I [been] with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not eaten.

 Genesis 31:39 That which was torn [of beasts] I brought not unto thee; I bare the loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, [whether] stolen by day, or stolen by night.

Genesis 31:40 [Thus] I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.

Going without sleep caused Jacob to have the "Eyelids of the Morning"

Job 41:18  By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes [are] like the eyelids of the morning.

 

Genesis 31:41 Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast changed my wages ten times. 

Genesis 31:42 Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked [thee] yesternight.

 

The Wisdom of Creator GOD sent Jacob to WORK for his father-in-law Laban who had an Elite Extreme "Jacob Mindset" that in much severe deceitfulness worked Jacob for 20 years,

thereby purging Jacob of his own "Jacob Mindset."…… "Live and Learn" did Jacob learn to      "do Nobody Wrong"  

Jacob thereafter earned the Name "Israel"

Strongs H3478

  1. Israel = "God prevails"

 

  1. the second name for Jacob given to him by God after his wrestling with the angel at Peniel

Esau was regenerated through his family lineage and at GODs appointed time, according to the calling of the regenerated individual. I'll get some scripture examples on next page.
