About this item

"Esau Rising is a masterpiece that will truly impact the lives of those who read it.Esau Rising exposes the spirit of Amalek in our day that wants to destroy Israel and extinguish any light that reveals their self-indulgence lifestyle without regard to the consequences."—Mark Biltz, founder of El Shaddai Ministries and author ofBlood Moons

Genesis 25 is the account of the birth of the twins Esau and Jacob. When grown, Esau came in from hunting and smelled the food Jacob prepared and traded his birthright for a bowl of stew. The spirit of Esau is the desire of the flesh and he was willing to trade his entire spiritual heritage for a whim of the moment. Esau, representing the flesh, is the father of the Edomites. Jacob, who became Israel and a prince with God, represents the spirit of righteousness. When Esau traded his birthright in effect Esau said, "I would rather have a bowl of soup than have a relationship with God."

How is this story relevant to Americans today? In today's age of selfies and entitlements, sexual licentiousness and online vilification, and an out-of-control government that is usurping the role of God as the provider and protector, it is clear that the spirit of Esau is dominating our culture. Esau Rising analyzes the characteristics and mind-set of the biblical figure Esau and explains why these traits have prophetic ramifications for our day. Specifically, author Bill Cloud relates them to current political and societal developments transpiring in the world and particularly in the United States of America. Cloud skillfully explains how the spirit of Jacob has always been a light to the nations, a blessing to the people, and he offers hope for restoring righteousness and favor to this great country.
