Abrashem, Isaaka, and Akobe: History of Akobe

For anyone to truly understand the Bible and the word of the Creator, one of the subjects that must truly be understood is the subject of the history of Israel. The bible may speak largely of the salvation of the Master Yashaya the Anointed One (Jesus Christ), however, a looming part of the salvation process is through the children of the Bantu.

Simply put, the Creator has commissioned this seed of Abram to play a mighty role in sharing the salvation of the Great Creator Almighty with the inhabitants on the earth. To handle a bible, talk about it, teach, and study it, all without bringing up the children of the Bantu is a gross mishandling of the scripture. To not have a comprehensive understanding of the history of Israel is also a minor or even major conflict.

This is why this book was put together; to provide a comprehensive understanding of the history of Akobe and the divided kingdom. The children of the Bantu really began when the Great Creator separated Abram whose name was changed to Abrashem from his family in Mesopotamia.

High Priest Melchizedek

The Great-Creator chose Abram at age 75 and sent him out of Mesopotamia and told him that he would inherit the land of Canaan. Along the way, Abrashem was blessed once again by the current high priest Melchizedek, which in itself is a subject of study altogether.

The Great-Creator Almighty then made a covenant with Abrashem. This covenant the Creator proclaimed to multiply Abrashem in the land of Canaan. In addition, the Creator would greatly bless Abrashem’s offspring. Abrashem had a son named Ismael and later had another son named Isaaka (whom the LORD passed the Covenant blessings to).

Nevertheless, Ismael and all of Abrashem’s sons also were blessed (not to mention his children who would be known as spiritual children). His spiritual children are people who believed in Abrashem’s Creator but were not physical children of Abrashem.

Birthright Struggle

The generation after Abrashem was Isaaka. Isaaka married a woman named Rebeka and from their union came the twins, Esau and Akobe. Although Esau was born first and should have justly inherited the first born’s Birthright, he ended up not doing so. In his adult years, he despised his Birthright. According to the scripture he swapped, switched or exchanged his birthright status for a meal. He was truly exhausted and hungry.

Unfortunately, he made a very costly decision. He sold his birthright to his younger brother Akobe. If we backtrack a moment we would note that while the two, Esau and Akobe, were in the womb of their mother, Rebeka received a word of prophecy from the LORD. The prophetic word was that the elder child would serve the younger.

There were two nations in her womb. According to prophecy, and a little trickery by Akobe and Rebeka, Isaaka blessed Akobe and made him lord over Esau. This angered Esau greatly and he vowed to murder his brother Akobe. So Akobe’s mother had to get rid of Akobe before Esau carried out his murderous plans.

To Mesopotamia – Land Between Two Rivers

The parents of Akobe sent him back to Mesopotamia to search for a wife. The idea and the plan for Abrashem’s seed were never to marry the women of Canaan. That was the guise Akobe’s parents used to get Akobe to leave without suspicion from Esau.

As Akobe went back to Mesopotamia to seek a wife, but really to stay away from a very angry Esau, he ran into a beautiful young maid named Rachel. The beautiful Rachel was given to him but he also had to take her older sister Lea (who apparently was not so beautiful). It was a family or cultural tradition, the younger sister could not get married before an older sister.

This is difficult to carry out if the younger sister is better looking and physically more attractive than the older. At any rate, Akobe ended up with both of the sister’s and their handmaids. This was because of Rachel’s conflict of not being able to conceive children at the time. Because she was barren, she convinced Akobe to marry her handmaid in order to have children; Lea ended up doing the same.

Full House Family

Twenty years later, Akobe now had four wives and twelve children. It was at this time he decided to leave Mesopotamia because of a quarrelsome disagreement with his uncle and father-in-law, Laban. Upon leaving Laban and Mesopotamia, he prepared himself to meet his long-time brother Esau, who he hadn’t seen all these years.

As he prepared to meet Esau, he was very fearful that Esau would still carry the grudge over the birthright. This was the same birthright blessing that he swindled from between his hands some twenty-plus years prior. Before they met, Akobe was met by an Angel who wrestled with him all night. Akobe never gave up throughout the entire entangle. When the angel attempted to leave, Akobe demanded the angel bless him. The angel asked him what was his name. Akobe responded, Akobe.

The angel then said that he should no longer go by the name Akobe but by the name Israel. This is the first time the name Israel is brought up in the scriptures. The reason his name was changed from Akobe to Israel was that he was able to wrestle God and mankind and prevail. He became a mighty prince on the earth and that is why his name is now Israel. Akobe carried on back to the land of Canaan.

Esau Joins the Enemies

First, he met with his older brother Esau who had long since forgotten or put away his anger towards his brother. They embraced and exchanged presents, as well as meeting for the first time, each other’s families. Esau had four hundred (400) men with him, as well as a family well-stocked because he married multiple women.

Also, he partnered with the people of Seir, ruling over them. Switching gears, Akobe’s last son was born and his name was Benjamin. His birth gave Akobe twelve sons and one daughter. His daughter’s name was Dina.

Akobe now had a full family, he had some stewards or servants, and plenty of cattle. Side note, at the arrival of Benjamin, Rachel died during childbirth. In the process of time, Akobe’s sons become angry at the blatant favoritism Akobe held for his son Joseph (Yosef). They sold Yosef into the hands of some Ismaelites, who then sold him into Egypt.

Akobe was then told by his sons that Yosef was torn and eaten by a beast.
