THE CURSE ON ISAAC

THE CURSE ON ISAAC

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.

Reflection.

Cursed be everyone that curseth thee”: There shall be a frustration, difficulty, poverty, and defeat for all those who take up arms against Jacob and who rise in hatred against Jews. This is a curse against anti-semitism and has been fulfilled many times throughout history.

It is therefore of interest to note what has happened to all the mighty nations and empires which persecuted and murdered Jews in the past. All Jew haters will come to the same end, as did Rome, the Crusaders, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union and so many others that do not even exist today. Let us look at these examples, one by one, and see the common pattern. A curse is a wonder! It is a wonder because it always comes to pass no matter how long it takes. The words spoken by authority figures have carried through the centuries and worked out an amazing pattern that is difficult to ignore.

The Fulfilment of the Curse of Isaac

 1. The fulfilment of the curse on the Roman Empire: “Cursed be everyone that curseth thee”.

 The mighty Roman Empire once dominated the world. Every nation was subject to its great and spreading power.

Unfortunately for this great empire, it took on an enemy which was protected by a great and mighty curse. There were a number of military campaigns between the Jews and the Roman Empire.

 From the year 63 BC, General Pompey subdued Judea. From then on, the Jewish kingdom was subject to the Roman Empire. A serious rebellion against the Roman Empire began in AD 66 and ended with the destruction of the Jewish Temple in AD 70.

 It was the 14th of April, AD 70 during the Passover, when Titus, commander of the Roman Army laid siege to Jerusalem. He eventually overcame the city and burnt down the holy Temple of the Jews.

 During the four years of war, the Romans took 97,000 Jews as prisoners. Thousands of them were forced to become gladiators and were killed in the arena, fighting wild animals or fellow gladiators. Some, who were considered criminals, were burned alive. Others were employed at Seleucia, where they were put to digging a tunnel. But most of these prisoners were brought to Rome, where they were forced to build the Forum of Peace (a park in the heart of Rome) and the Colosseum.

The boundless riches from the Temple treasury were used to strike coins with the legend JUDAEA CAPTA (“Judaea defeated”). The Menorah and the Table from the Holy Temple were exhibited in the Temple of Peace. The Romans then destroyed Jerusalem and annexed Judaea as a Roman province. As a punishment for their rebellion, the Romans systematically forced all Jews to leave Palestine.

Three years later, in 73 ADS, a small Jewish force still held out against the mighty Roman Empire in a mountain fortress called Masada. The Romans had besieged the fort for two years, and the 1,000 Jewish men, women, and children inside were beginning to starve. In desperation, the Jewish revolutionaries decided to kill themselves rather than surrender to the Romans.

 After 73 ADS, the Jews were scattered all over the world in Europe, Africa, and Asia. Many Jews migrated to areas throughout the Mediterranean region and to other parts of the world.

 The Roman Empire, which destroyed the Jews in Jerusalem, experienced the curse of Isaac that protects Israel. That ancient curse declares “cursed be those who curse you” and is mysteriously fulfilled today because the Roman Empire has now been destroyed and wiped out completely.

 Astonishingly today, two thousand years later, there is no Roman Empire but there is a Jewish state of Israel with its capital in Jerusalem.

 2. Pray for Israel always

Hello friends and fellow believers! Your prosperity comes to you as you yield to this scripture.

 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Psalm 122:6

Prayer.

Dear Lord! You have spoken once and twice we have heard. May we yield in obedience to your Word henceforth, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Please share!
