No Place of Repentance?

Hebrews 12:

 

17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

 

What does it mean..."he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears" How does one not attain it seeking it with tears?

This is about Esau, it is not dealing with the cry for salvation by a sinner wanting to be saved. Rather, the repentance here is his attempt to change his father’s mind, after he (Esau) already sold his birthright to His brother. Tears are not always a sign of a true repentance, people at times are more concern about what they lost rather than the sin they committed that cause them the lost.

 

 

"Tears are not always a sign of a true repentance, people at times are more concern about what they lost rather than the sin they committed that cause them the lost. " That was a sermon in a nutshell.

@Eric sadly yes that is a possibility, though I try to be genuine when I repent and I pray that I am. 😖 and me too looking forward to reading more about Esau, like what was he thinking giving up his birthright? 😯😊

@Pink, I know just what you mean. Sadly some are teaching do not ask for forgiveness.

And while waiting I read the blog post about Esau ☺ it clears some things.
