Purge That Hatred

Focus: Genesis 27:41 - KJV

41. And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.


Genesis 37:3-18


Evil is a progressive phenomenon in the minds of men. When envy is allowed to get root, it moves to hatred and then to murder. That is why the mind of God is that we love our neighbors just like we would love ourselves. Imagine David surreptitiously laying with Urriah’s wife. If he had succeeded in getting the man to lay with his wife afterwards, so as to push paternity to him of the son the woman carried, David was not likely to cease from laying with the woman. His envy of Urriah, because of his woman, made him to hate Urriah for not eating the bait he laid for him and it led him to killing Urriah. Joseph’s half-brothers first envied him because he was the father’s preferred son. Then envy graduated to hatred when there was an indication that he was going to rule them some day. That led to their scheming to kill him. Esau could not withstand that his twin brother was blessed of his father instead of himself. His envy led to hatred and a scheme to lie in wait for a good day to slay him. If they had allowed their hearts to be filled with love to replace envy, they would not have graduated to the point of wanting to kill.


What the Lord has for us today is to let us know that envy is the enemy’s trap to turn us to murderers. When it graduates to the level of hatred, it starts getting difficult to turn back until it leads to a desire to murder. It is the murderous thoughts and desire that makes a Christian to say things about another that will make other people view that other as a person that should not be related with. That is murderous in itself. Some others will actually put plan in place to completely destroy the same from the scheme of things and they even rejoice over their wickedness. Let us not be such but rather, disallow envy from forming in our hearts and kill it so that it does not become hatred. Those who hate and therefore kill (not necessarily by shedding open blood), will answer to God like Edom. Incidentally, what we do in our generation is translated to the later generation in a larger manner. Please end the foray now and don’t let it progress, at all.


SOLUTION: Everyone has his life to live and unto each there are divine provisions to help come to an expected end. Envying a neighbor is an indication of discontent with one’s own supply. Take your eyes and mind off the seeming progress of your neighbor and focus on your God for all things. Love, no matter what you are faced with. It will preclude you from murderous thoughts and actions.


Please pray:

·     Thank God for sending to us this message on this day to help us overcome the traps of the enemy aimed at capturing our souls

·     Ask God to please sanctify and purify your heart blocking it from receiving horrible thoughts from the pit of hell that would make one envy or hate his neighbor

·     Tell God to please put an end to the spread of hatred and consequently murder amongst supposed brethren in the body of Christ

·     Ask that the Lord will please satisfy you and by extension other brethren with the blessings from heaven so that there will be no room for envy of any kind

·     Tell God to bar every satanic person, operating in envy or hatred, from reaching you with their evil plans and that you will have victory continually over the plans of the evil one for your life
