Definitely an S.M. (Secret Message) from the LORD.

A. GOD's Grace - the LORD JESUS CHRIST will not recognize you

"And Isaac his father said to him, Who are you?"

Isaac or "yitschaq" in Hebrew meaning: laughter, mockery.

Esau or "esav" in Hebrew meaning: handling, rough, felt.

Isaac symbolizes GOD's Grace or the LORD JESUS CHRIST and Esau symbolizes "keepers of the Law" - those who seek to gain salvation by keeping the ten commandments.

Doers of the Law, Law Keepers are those who people who seek to be right with GOD by being good, doing the ten commandments, doing rituals and sacrifices but does not want relationship with GOD, only wants religion (external/outward appearances) but his heart is not right with GOD.

Galatians 5:4 (Amplified Bible)

If you seek to be justified and declared righteous and to be given a right standing with God through the Law, you are brought to nothing and so separated (severed) from Christ. You have fallen away from grace (from God’s gracious favor and unmerited blessing).

Romans 3:20 (Amplified Bible)

For no person will be justified (made righteous, acquitted, and judged acceptable) in His sight by observing the works prescribed by the Law. For [the real function of] the Law is to make men recognize and be conscious of sin [not mere perception, but an acquaintance with sin which works toward repentance, faith, and holy character].

Romans 4:4-5 (Amplified Bible)

Now to a laborer, his wages are not counted as a favor or a gift, but as an obligation (something owed to him).

But to one who, not working [by the Law], trusts (believes fully) in Him Who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited to him as righteousness (the standing acceptable to God).

Because the WAY to GOD has been clearly revealed it's CHRIST, not the Law. CHRIST fulfilled all the ten commandments perfectly, therefore He's doing it right now, even as we speak, through and inside of us.

Romans 10:4 (Amplified Bible)

For Christ is the end of the Law [the limit at which it ceases to be, for the Law leads up to Him Who is the fulfillment of its types, and in Him the purpose which it was designed to accomplish is fulfilled. That is, the purpose of the Law is fulfilled in Him] as the means of righteousness (right relationship to God) for everyone who trusts in and adheres to and relies on Him.

Galatians 2:16 (Amplified Bible)

Yet we know that a man is justified or reckoned righteous and in right standing with God not by works of the Law, but [only] through faith and [absolute] reliance on and adherence to and trust in Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). [Therefore] even we [ourselves] have believed on Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the Law [for we cannot be justified by any observance of the ritual of the Law given by Moses], because by keeping legal rituals and by works no human being can ever be justified (declared righteous and put in right standing with God).
