Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
As Jacob fled his brother's wrath, Hashem comes to our patriarch to reveal His overall plan. The Almighty Planner of the destiny of Israel said, "I am Adonai, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac. The land on which you lie I will give to you and to your offspring. Your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south, and in you and your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you (Genesis 28:13-15)."
Anyone who believes in the Bible has to accept that by Divine Mandate, the Land which is now called 'Israel' (Jacob's future name (Genesis 32:28)), belongs to his descendant. Jacob fled Esau, but also he was following in his father and grand-father's footsteps in getting a wife from within the family clan. Tradition says that as he left Canaan, Hashem protected Jacob from Esau's son who pursued after him, and now Hashem declares to Jacob that He will accomplish through him all the words He previously spoke to Abraham (Genesis 12:3; 28:14).
The spreading of the Children of Israel to the four winds is often referred to as the present-day great Exile. This exile may appear as a curse to the Children of Israel, but it is the instrument Hashem uses to bless the nations. The first post-second Temple Jews to go in exile were the Messianic believers who brought the teachings of our Master to all the nations of the Roman Empire. Later, as all Israel went in exile, it filled the rest of the pagan world with the knowledge of the One true God who created the universe. Thanks to the Great Exile, the majority of the world today is monotheistic, lives by a seven-day week, and derives its basic moral notions of right and wrong from the tenets of the Torah. Judaism has therefore become the most influential form of belief in the world. It is also fair to say that the whole world has heard of Messiah, so in that regards, one can also conclude that the whole world has been blessed in the descendants of Jacob, the grand-son f Abraham to whom this prophecy was first given.
Jacob receives this Oracle as he himself goes to exile. His exile is a foreshadow of the future Great Exile of his descendants. Hashem assures the patriarch that the Divine Presence goes with him in this exile to also bring him back to the Land Promised to Abraham. In the same manner, Yeshua our Mashiach has been with us all throughout this exile and today brings us back to our Land. Though as in the case of Jacob, God's heavenly purposes do not find their earthly fulfillment without troubles and tribulations, we are thankful to be a part of His great plan of blessing the earth.
