Prophecy Thread of Week 16

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth:
Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.

THE OLDER WILL SERVER THE YOUNGER

The Lord explains to Isaac’s wife Rebekah that there are twins in her womb who will become two nations. He goes on to prophecy that the older will serve the younger. The fulfillment of this is during David’s reign when he subjugates the Edomites. Another example of divine transcendence of over eight hundred years, we can trust God to keep all His promises.

PROMISED

ESAU AND JACOB BORN (42ND GENERATION TO JESUS)

Gen 25:23b …one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”

FULFILLED

DAVID PLACES A GARRISON IN EDOM

1044 BC (U)

1Ch 18:13 He put garrisons in Edom, and all the Edomites became subject to David. The LORD gave David victory everywhere he went.
