“Esau then realized how displeasing the Canaanite women were to his father Isaac; so he went to Ishmael and married Mahalath, the sister of Nebaioth and daughter of Ishmael son of Abraham, in addition to the wives he already had.“-Genesis 28:8-9
I really feel sorry for Esau.
I mean he just can’t seem to do anything right.
He sells his birthright to his younger brother Jacob for a bowl of soup.
He gets duped out of his blessing.
He realizes he has caused much grief to his parents for taking two Canaanite women to be his wives.
Then, in a very badly miscalculated attempt to rectify the situation, Esau takes a wife from the family of the son that Abraham sent away.
In other words, he takes an Ishmaelite woman to be his third wife.
Can it get any worse than this?!
The effects of this union will be far reaching.
Think about it for a second.
THIS IS AN ALLIANCE OF THE TWO DISPOSSESSED SONS ISHMAEL AND ESAU.
The race of people to be born from this union comprise the vast portion of adherents to Islam and the majority of the Arab race.
This will change the course of history.
Think of ISIS.
We’re witnessing the devastating effects of this alliance on our television sets every night.
Trust me folks, it all began right here!
