Welcome to Resurrection Life of Jesus Church. We are a Bible centered group of believers who desire to grow in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ without compromise to His Word. We believe, teach and practice all things that Jesus taught and were practiced by the Church in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Jesus called his disciples to be salt and light. Salt is a preservative but it is also something that adds savor and enjoyment to our daily food. Light is a symbol of truth; it is comforting, penetrating, guiding and exposes darkness. We seek to preserve biblical truth and shed the glorious light of the Gospel in a world that is consumed by darkness.

ABOUT THE VIDEO
The birth of Esau and Jacob is the first record of twins in the Bible. We know everything happens for a purpose, but we don't know why God gave Rebecca twins. These boys grew up in a godly home, but they couldn't have been more different when it came to character. Esau mocked God by marrying two Hittite women and the daughter of his uncle Ishmael.
After Jacob swindled the birthright from Esau, he was sent to live with his mother's family back east. He eventually wore out his welcome and returned to Canaan with four wives and thirteen children. The problem was that Esau still wanted to kill him. Jesus started a series of interactions that saw the two brothers reconciled but there was no reconciliation for Esau with God.
Esau moved to the land of Edom, leaving Canaan solely to Jacob. These twins both made poor choices, but Jacob never surrendered his belief in God. The takeaway in all this is that the decisions you make on earth will determine your future on earth and beyond.
