Why was Jacob chosen for Rebekah?


...GNE.25.28
Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
And she said, Follow me." Jacob.



The process by which Rebekah received God's inheritance from Jacob is not easily understood.

Wasn't Esau, the eldest son, also the son of Rebekah?

Of course, Rebecca loved both. Because Esau and Jacob are both her sons. Plus, Esau and Jacob were twins, and the second Jacob was born almost at the same time, holding his elder brother Esau's ankles.
She cheats on her husband, Isaac, who gives God's blessing to his son. The second son, Jacob, was made to have animal hair on his arms to make him appear as hairy as his eldest son Esau. She took advantage of the fact that her husband, Isaac, was almost blind. Rebekah not only told Jacob to imitate his brother's voice, but also told his father Isaac to say, "I am Esau."
Rebekah told her son Jacob, who was afraid that he would be cursed by deceiving his father,


"Trust me and do not be afraid." She said, "If my son Jacob deserves a curse from his father Isaac or God for this, I and Rebekah will take it all."
Jacob's mother, Rebecca, told her son, "Follow me." Jacob, who had always obeyed his mother, obeyed his mother. Jacob was so afraid and trembling, he did everything his mother told him to do, and he received all the blessings of God from his father, Isaac

.
GEN.27.9-14
Go out to the flock and bring me two choice young goats, so I can prepare some tasty food for your father, just the way he likes it.
Then take it to your father to eat, so that he may give you his blessing before he dies."
Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, "But my brother Esau is a hairy man, and I'm a man with smooth skin.
What if my father touches me? I would appear to be tricking him and would bring down a curse on myself rather than a blessing."
His mother said to him, "My son, let the curse fall on me. Just do what I say; go and get them for me."
So he went and got them and brought them to his mother, and she prepared some tasty food, just the way his father liked it.
Then Rebekah took the best clothes of Esau her older son, which she had in the house, and put them on her younger son Jacob.
She also covered his hands and the smooth part of his neck with the goatskins.
Then she handed to her son Jacob the tasty food and the bread she had made.


Rebekah knew how terrifying and dreadful the consequences would be if all of this had happened without God's permission. It was a problem that not only Rebecca but also her beloved son Jacob could go straight to hell at once.

Was Rebekah not afraid of God the Creator?
Or was it God's permission?

When Rebekah was pregnant, two children in her womb were fighting fiercely, and Rebekah inquired of God.

GNE.25.19-25
This is the account of Abraham's son Isaac. Abraham became the father of Isaac,
and Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan Aram and sister of Laban the Aramean.  
Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, "Why is this happening to me?" So she went to inquire of the LORD.
The LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger."
When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb.
The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau.


Rebekah listened to the words of God's prophecy. No, it would have been engraved in her mind. Even if Rebecca tried to forget it, it may have been remembered over and over again. And as Rebecca raised her children, she would have observed the twins without fail to see which of the two children was more suitable to become the heir of God's blessings. And he must have thought and thought about the words of the prophecy that God had given to Rebekah.
If Rebekah had thought and hadn't thought about the words of the prophecy, could she have chosen one of the two sons as a mother?
Rebekah listened to the words of God's prophecy.
Esau, the eldest son, was outraged at Rebekah's decision to follow God's prophecy. It looked like a volcano was about to explode. He promised to kill his brother Jacob. Since they were twins, Esau trembled in anger, though they must have been closer than any other brother.

Was Esau really so angry with his younger brother Jacob?
Not. In fact, Esau must have hated his mother Rebekah more than Jacob. Why Jacob and not me?

It is enough to know how upset Esau must have been. However, the ending of Esau and Jacob, who had the help of their mother at the moment of God's blessing of becoming the firstborn, was different like heaven and earth.
Usually, he only played prodigally with foreign women that his parents didn't like, so he married a descendant of Ishmael. But Jacob was not. As his parents told him, Jacob found his wife at his uncle's house. Then he got married and had children.

Through the story of Esau and Jacob, we can see the successful way to get to heaven today.
The crucial difference between Esau and Jacob was whether they obeyed their parents.  Esau was born the eldest son, so he believed that he would automatically receive the firstborn blessing.  And there was a 99% chance that it would.  However, he did not act to please his parents' hearts.
God did not give his father Isaac the prophecy of which of the twins would be the firstborn, but his mother, Rebecca.

  The final option to become the blessed firstborn at this moment was not his father, Isaac, but his mother, Rebecca. 

It was not what Rebecca wanted to have, but what God the Creator gave her mother, Rebecca.
At the moment of receiving the blessing of eternal life on the threshold of heaven, mother's help was decisive for the twins Esau and Jacob.  Esau had no chance because Rebecca, the mother, wanted Jacob to become the firstborn son of God's blessing.

The story of Jacob and Esau reminds us of the importance of having a spirit mother.  It would also mean that our Heavenly Father, our Savior, the Creator, has handed over to the Bride, Heavenly Mother, the full power of giving her children eternal life.  Let's all hold the Mother of Spirit's hand, obey Heavenly Mother's words, and go to heaven together.

    Why did Rebekah help Jacob to receive the blessing of the firstborn by deceiving Isaac? When all things come true, depending on the presence or absence of God's prophecies, it is possible to know whether it came from man's thoughts or according to God's will. He helped him in the process of believing and obeying the saying that the older will serve the younger, not because he didn't love Esau. Rebekah's actions are a beautiful practice of fulfilling prophecy and obeying God's Word.

    Heavenly Mother's Word is the Bible of this age. Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong said that if you listen carefully to Heavenly Mother's words, you will receive blessings from God even while you are sleeping. What the people of salvation in the Age of the Holy Spirit must never forget is to look only at Heavenly Mother, obey Heavenly Mother's words, and not doubt Heavenly Mother's words. Our future is heaven. Let's hold Heavenly Mother's hand and go see Heavenly Father.

    It would be really sad if all of us had not yet met Heavenly Mother. Because we cannot all receive eternal life. Because in Revelation 22:17 God speaks clearly. To receive the water of life given by God the Father, the Holy Spirit, and God the Mother, the bride. The Creator says that the water of life given by the Holy Spirit and the Bride gives us the forgiveness of sins and eternal life that enables us to go to heaven.

    The Bible has testified to the existence of God the Mother for the salvation of our souls. Even the book of Genesis wrote the existence of God the Mother. I'm also following God the Mother, the source of the living water as a member of the WMSCOG. Before the WMSCOG, I'd never heard about the existence of God the Mother, the source of the living water at all. Now, I can say that God the Mother is the source of eternal salvation and you have to receive and follow Her wherever She leads you. All thanks to Christ Ahnsahnghong, who blessed me to receive God the Mother in Zion!

    The reason mayflies live only a day, dogs live for 15 years, and humans live 100 years is because they inherit that life span from their mothers. All mankind can become the “children of promise” who receive eternal life from God only when we meet God the Mother who has eternal life. Heavenly Mother came to this earth in the form of a physical body today, in the last days. And she herself is calling us together. We must hear the voice of God and gather together. And obey Heavenly Mother and walk the path of her faith.

    The existence of God the Mother is the top secret of the Bible. God the Mother came to this earth in the flesh to give us eternal life. Although many people insist that they believe in God, they deny the existence of God the Mother. However, the Bible testifies that without God the Mother, no one can receive eternal life and go back to heaven. The only place where God the Mother,who grants us eternal life, dwells is the World Mission Society Church of God.
