Scripture: Genesis 27:28-29

Therefore, God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine: Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee be lord over thy brethren and let thy mother’s sons bow down to thee: cursed be everyone that curseth thee and blessed be he that blesseth thee.


 And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:3

Isaac blessed his son Jacob and Jacob’s name was changed to Israel. Jacob is the person who grew to become the nation, Israel. Jacob, the nation of Israel, received the blessing of the dew of the heavens, the fatness of the earth and plenty of corn and wine. He also received the blessing of having the nations bow down to him and becoming the lord of his relatives.

 These blessings have carried through the centuries and made Israel and the Jews become who they have become. There is no other explanation that can help us understand why this small group of people should be so distinguished on the earth. Even more amazing is the fact that this group of people has been persecuted, expelled, hated, and murdered by so many nations and yet has continued to stand out and shine through the centuries.

 Even though there are many ethnic groups of people in the world, none of them has stood out and affected the world the way this group of people has. It is worth analyzing and discovering the secret behind the unusual achievements of the Jews. As usual, the Bible gives us the answers. The wonders of the blessings and the curses are working! The blessings spoken by Isaac over his son, Israel, are prevailing and counteracting the hatred that exists against Jews. Nothing but the power of a blessing can explain the success and prosperity of the Jews. Let us now look at how the blessing of Isaac is working itself out in the lives of the Jews today.

 1. The blessing of Isaac is working because the most famous person ever was a Jew. Jesus Christ was the most famous person that ever lived. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. The Jews were blessed, and God chose them and used them to bring His Son into the world. All the history of mankind is dated and related to when this most famous and outstanding Jew (Jesus Christ) was born into this world. The Jews are a famous nation and have been used by God to impact the whole world.

 2. The blessing of Isaac on Israel is working because many famous people of our world have been Jews. There is no way to explain why so many outstanding, unique, and famous people come from Israel. Apart from the most famous person who ever lived, many other very famous people are Jews. Indeed, many Jews changed their names to protect themselves from persecution; and so, it is likely that many more famous people are Jews. Let’s have a look at some of the famous Jews of our world.

 Sigmund Freud: Sigmund Freud is one of the world’s famous descendants of Jacob. Sigmund Freud explored the human mind more thoroughly than any other who came before him. His contributions to psychology are vast. Freud was one of the most influential people of the twentieth century and his enduring legacy has not only influenced psychology, but art, literature and even the way people bring up their children.

Karl Marx: Karl Marx was a Jew who has been both lauded and criticized. Marx has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history. Many intellectuals, labour unions and political parties worldwide have been influenced by Marx’s ideas, with many variations on his groundwork. Marx is typically cited with Emile Durkheim and Max Weber as one of the three principal architects of modern social science. Marx’s work in economics laid the basis for much of the current understanding of labour and its relation to capital, and subsequent economic thought. He published numerous books during his lifetime, the most notable being “The Communist Manifesto”.

3. The blessing of Isaac on Israel is working because the Jews have won a disproportionately high number of Nobel Prizes as compared to other groups of people. The Nobel Prize is regarded by far as the most prestigious prize in the world and is awarded to those who, during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind. Since the Nobel Prize was first awarded in 1901 approximately 193 of the 855 honorees have been Jewish (22%), even though Jews make up less than 0.2% of the global population.

 4. The blessing of Isaac on Israel is working because many of the richest and most successful people on earth have been Jews as compared to other groups in humanity. Note this list of the descendants of Jacob below and be amazed at the wonders of spoken blessing.

 a. THE FOUNDER OF GOOGLE: Google, the world’s largest Internet company, was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University. Sergey Brin, whose father was a Soviet mathematician economist, was born to a Jewish family in Moscow. In 1979, he and his family fled persecution and migrated to America.

 b. THE FOUNDER OF FACEBOOK: Zuckerberg was raised Jewish and had his bar mitzvah when he turned 13. Unfortunately, he became an atheist afterwards. One of the other co-founders of Facebook, Dustin Moskovitz is also Jewish.

d. THE CEO OF MICROSOFT: Steve Ballmer, is Jewish.

e. THE FOUNDER OF ORACLE: Lawrence Joseph ‘Larry’ Ellison was born in New York City, to an unwed Jewish woman. He founded the world’s second largest software company, Oracle, and is listed as the world’s richest Jew, and by Forbes as the sixth richest person in the world.

f. THE OWNER OF CHELSEA FOOTBAL CLUB: Roman Abramovitch who owns the Chelsea Football Club, as well as a private investment company, Millhouse LLC, is also a Jew and a descendant of Isaac.

Indeed! Israel is blessed and we are partakers of these blessings if only you know and have the God, they have…


Thank you for these blessings of Israel. We partake by your covenant blood now, amen.
