Genesis 25:1 Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.
  • This genealogy, and Abraham's death recorded here, because no more is to be said about Abraham. Abraham, however, lived until Jacob was 15. Shem died 1846.
  • A wife = another, instead of "again".
2 And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
  • 1 Chronicles 1:32 Now the sons of Keturah, Abraham's concubine: she bare Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. And the sons of Jokshan; Sheba, and Dedan.
  • Medan and Midian were half-brothers with Ishmael, and they were mixed up together in their dealings.
  • Genesis 37:25 And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.
  • Genesis 37:28 Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.
  • Ishmeelites =  Midianites.
  • Ishmael was the son of Abraham by Hagar 
  • Midian the son of Abraham by Keturah they were mixed together, and were distinguished only by their noserings.
  • Genesis 16:11 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.
    12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
    13 And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?
    14 Wherefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.
    15 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael.
    16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.
  • Exodus 18:1  When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law, heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and that the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt;
  • 2 Then Jethro, Moses' father in law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her back,
    3 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:
    4 And the name of the other was Eliezer; for the God of my father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh:
    5 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of God:
    6 And he said unto Moses, I thy father in law Jethro am come unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.
    7 And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent.
    8 And Moses told his father in law all that the LORD had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, and all the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how the LORD delivered them.
    9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the LORD had done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.
3 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.

4 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.
  • These = the tares, sown after Isaac, the good seed.
5 And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.
  • Galatians 4:28  Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
  • Hebrews 11:18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.

7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.
  • Abraham's life was the age of 175. Therefore a sojourner 100 years
  • 100 = God chosen people, the children of the promise
  • Genesis 12:4  So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
    5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
8 Then Abraham gave up the spirit, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.

9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;

10 The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

11 And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi.

12 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:

13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,

15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:

16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered unto his people.

18 And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brethren.

19 And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham begat Isaac:

20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan-aram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.

21 And Isaac intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the Lord.

23 And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
  • Two nations are in thy womb
  • One people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
  • First son born  = came out red = name Esau = The Nation Russia
26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
  • Second son born = Jacob = Nations of Israel = 13 tribes of Israel
  • The two super powers of Nations are USA and Russia
  • Bible study hour = USA
  • (The very elect are from All races) that loves the Lord will search out their birthright. God loves All His Children. God wants to know... if you love Him?

  • The first tribe to be conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh, in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 years later America became a nation on July 4, 1776.
  • Pilgrims, who called themselves, The Seed of Abraham, God's servant and the children of Jacob, His chosen, allotted their land as Israel did. They followed after the council of Moses, the law giver of Israel and in all their under takings, asked for guidance and blessings of the God of Jacob, Isaac and Abraham.
    Manasseh means "forgetfulness" and if there has ever been a people forgetful of all their past, it is this last, this thirteenth, this Manasseh-Israel people in United States.
    In like manner much could be shown by history and tradition that the United States of America is from the tribe of Manasseh and is peopled by a gathering of all the thirteen tribes of Israel.
  • Manasseh -  The Nations of USA, parts of Canada and other Christians' Nations
  • A resident of USA, does not make them a descendant of Manasseh
  • Manasseh The Nation USA, The Thirteenth Tribe of Israel -  USA  National Number Is Thirteen
27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.
  • Esau was a cunning hunter
  • Jacob was a plain man
28 And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob.

29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:

30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
  • Sell me this day thy birthright
32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
  • Esau sold his birthright unto Jacob
  • Esau despised his birthright.
34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.
  • Esau despised his birthright.
  • Romans 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
    7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
    8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
    9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.
    10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;
    11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)
    12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
  • 13  As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
    14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
    15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
    16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
  • Why did God hate Esau?
  • Esau despised his birthright, He didn't care about his birthright, He sold it
  • God knew the soul, He placed in the flesh body of this man, who was called Esau.
  • Before he was born of woman
  • His judgment took place in the world that was.
  • Each soul earned its place during the spiritual battle when Lucifer, first fell away in the world that was.
  • God needs to know, do you love Him?
