OLD AMALEK

INTRODUCTION: FAMILY FEUDS ARE UNFORTUNATELY REAL AND COMMON. THIS STUDY ADDRESSES A FEUD HISTORICALLY ORIGINATING WITH TWO BROTHERS JACOB AND ESAU. SHORTLY AFTER ISRAEL LEFT EGYPT ON THEIR WAY TO THE PROMISED LAND, AMALEK ATTACKED ISRAEL FROM THE REAR. AMALEK’S NAME REOCCURS TWENTY-FIVE TIMES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: OBSERVE THE GENEALOGY IN GENESIS 36: 12 (NKJV). NOW TIMMA WAS THE CONCUBINE OF ELIPHAZ, ESAU’S SON, AND SHE BORE AMALEK TO ELIPHAZ. THESE WERE THE SONS OF ADAH, ESAU’S WIFE.

EXODUS 17:13 (NKJV) SO JOSHUA DEFEATED AMALEK AND HIS PEOPLE WITH THE SWORD. DEFEATED, YES, BUT NOT TOTALLY ANNIHILATED!

EXODUS 17: 16 (THE BOOK-PARAPHRASE-MOSES SPEAKING) THEY HAVE DARED TO RAISE THEIR FIST AGAINST THE LORD’S THRONE, SO NOW THE LORD WILL BE AT WAR WITH AMALEK FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION. ROMANS 9: 13 (THE BOOK-A PARAPHRASE) IN THE WORDS OF THE SCRIPTURES, I LOVED JACOB BUT I REJECTED ESAU.

BIBLICAL TOPOLOGIST VIEW AMALEK AS A TYPE OF THE FLESH.

ROMANS 7:18 (THE BOOK-PARAPHRASE) I KNOW I AM ROTTEN THROUGH AND THROUGH SO FAR AS THE OLD SINFUL NATURE IS CONCERNED. NO MATTER WHICH WAY I TURN, I CAN’T MAKE MYSELF DO RIGHT. I WANT TO, BUT I CAN’T.

APPLICATION: BELIEVER, AMALEK WANTS YOU “FLESHED OUT”, CARNAL. THE WORD WANTS YOU SPIRITUAL. ROMANS 8: 6 (NKJV) FOR TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH, BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE AND PEACE. WHAT IS YOUR CHOICE BELIEVER?
