1-21 - ‘The Kingdom will be the Lord’s’ (21). When God’s Kingdom comes, there will be both salvation - ‘The house of Jacob will possess its inheritance’ - and judgment
- ‘There will be no survivors from the house of Esau’ (17-18). ‘Not by
works but by Him who calls’ - This is the great contrast between ‘Jacob’
and ‘Esau’. We have not been saved ‘because of any good deeds that we
have done’. We have been saved ‘by grace’. We can never be saved ‘by
works’. We can never receive His grace ‘by works’. We receive His grace
‘by faith’. We look away from ourselves to the Lord and say, ‘He
saved us’. ‘It is by grace that you have been saved through faith... not
by works, so that no-one can boast’ (Romans 9:10-13, 30-32; 11:6; Titus
3:4-7; Ephesians 2:8-9).
