In this sermon we see how God protects Jacob in accordance with his covenant promises.

We see that God protects Jacob by:

  • Sending a host of angels to protect him.
  • Giving him the wisdom to send messengers ahead of him to see what was in Esau’s heart.
  • Moving Jacob to plead God’s covenant promises. Also causing him to humble himself before God.
  • Giving him the wisdom to appease Esau’s anger.

We also look at whether or not it was a sin for Jacob to fear Esau in light of God’s promise.
