Brother Esau?

Genesis 25:25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.

15 And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son: 16 And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck: 17 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob. 18 And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I; who art thou, my son?

19 And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that thy soul may bless me. 20 And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the LORD thy God brought it to me. 21 And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not. 22 And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.

23 And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his brother Esau’s hands: so he blessed him. 24 And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.

25 And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son’s venison, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he brought him wine, and he drank.

27 And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which the LORD hath blessed:

29 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 every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee. 30 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son’s venison, that thy soul may bless me. 32 And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau.

33 And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed. 34 And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father.

35 And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy blessing. – 36 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? 37And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?

38And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept. 39And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;

40And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

Jacob stole Esau blessing from his father. Did God deny Esau a blessing also? Is Esau really what we call bigfoot today? Maybe bigfoot is a descendant of Esau. Could it be? Could in fact it be that big foot is Esau?

I have listened to hours of reports concerning bigfoot sightings and encounters. At the end of each video I ask myself the same question. “Is bigfoot Esau?”

We may never know considering there is no evidence that clearly shows the existence of a mythical creature called bigfoot. We only know from reports that its behavior is human in nature. Yet, it can be beastly and deadly when provoked.

This is how the stories are told. Stories of people hung in trees half eaten. Stories of screeching howls that penetrating the scared souls of men.

Then when we push past the myth of bigfoot. We see the story for what it portrays. A set of twin brothers. One handsome and handy. The other hairy and a hunter.

One brother steals the blessing of another brother, Esau. He betrays his father and his brother by using goat skin to cover his arms and neck. He even kissed his father who then smelled death on the carcass and called him son.

Esau pleaded with his father to bless him. Father bless me as you intended. Despite his cries of injustice all had been given to Jacob. All but one thing.

39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;

What did his father give Esau? Did he give him all that exists that grows and sustains life from heaven above?

Did our Father give us all that grows and sustains life from heaven above? It was our beginning. Is it our end?

For in the end it is God who gives earths bounty beginning with the dew of heaven from above. In the end will man be left with what began as a gift from God in the form of a garden? The garden of Eden.
