1 you shall break his yoke from off your neck. Jacob, signifying the 2nd (spiritual birth in a man), shall rule over Esau (the first birth). But there shall come a time when Esau shall break the yoke of Jacob off his neck. So the Jews lost the spiritual birth and took on the Spirit of Esau, which killed the prophets and killed Jesus. So too, did Christendom, lose the spiritual birth and take on the rough nature of Esau, killing by the sword those truly of the spiritual birth: I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus, Rev 17:6.
