Hebrews 11:27-28 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible. 28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

Who is perfect in here, and never gets chastened by God?
Hebrews 12:6 For whom Yahuweh loveth He chasten, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth.
Hebrews 12:1-29 READ
Hebrews 12:15-17 E'sau misses the blessing of promise Why? He held the promise of no value when it was to the satisfying of his flesh. Verse 15 talks of the grace (divine influence) of the Holy Spirit. Some people are caught in oppression of their past pain that leads to bitterness and as E'sau, could not go beyond the physical and physiological to the Faith of God's Word and Promise.
Father we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.

Halle lu Yah Holy Spirit of God which we receive by the blood of the Lamb, Yahushua, Jesus.
