A mother of fraternal or non-identical twins is to be greatly admired. She must traverse a middle road between two independent humans, both of whom have the same or similar needs and are demanding of her attention, her gifts, and her sustenance, sometimes simultaneously. Twins are different from siblings with different birthdays. They generally have a strong unbreakable bond, they frequently demand to be seen as independent of the other, and yet, they appear to be inseparable. In contrast, other siblings are presumptively viewed as being independent of the other.
Being a twin nation is similar to being a human twin. Twin nations do not on the surface appear to be inseparable, but they often have an unbreakable bond. When Isaac (son of Abraham) and his wife Rebekah were expecting twins (Jacob and Esau), God told Rebekah that the twins represent two jostling nations (Genesis 25:19-26). We know that Jacob, the younger of the twins, was renamed Israel and had twelve sons who became the twelve tribes of Israel, most of whom are now scattered throughout the world. Esau despised his birthright as the older twin and relinquished it in exchange for a single meal (Genesis 25:27-34).
What many in the world do not realize is that those who now occupy the land of Israel are primarily the descendants of Esau. That they now occupy the land of Israel does not make them Jews. That Esau was a son of Isaac and Rebekah, and the twin brother of Jacob (Israel), does not make them Jews. The true Jews are the sons of Jacob whom God renamed Israel. God has given the current occupants of the land of Israel life through his indwelling Holy Spirit, in the same way that he has given the light of life by his Holy Spirit to descendants of Jacob, and to others. As did Esau, they can despise their birthright in exchange for a single meal, or for gold and silver. The true Jews always will be those who live in accordance with the standards set forth by the God of all creation (Romans 2:29; Revelation 3:7-11).
