Prophecy Thread of Week 16
Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth:Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
THE OLDER WILL SERVER THE YOUNGER
The Lord explains to Isaac’s wife Rebekah that there are twins in her womb who will become two nations. He goes on to prophecy that the older will serve the younger.

Gen 25:23b …one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”
