Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Warrior’s Birthright”
Text: Genesis 25:34
“And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.”
“The Warrior’s Birthright,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The Birthright was normally given by the father to his first born son. It was a “double portion” more than the other sons. The Birthright included a spiritual and material part. It was a Spiritual Covenant that was inherited from the father to carry on by the son - and the Material Wealth of all the property and possessions of the father.
This Birthright was not earned it was “born into” and given freely to the firstborn by the father.
Before the twins Jacob and Esau were born God gave Jacob the Birthright from his father Isaac (Gen.25:23).
Jacob desired the spiritual covenant more than the material portion - but Esau desired the material portion more than the spiritual; and that is how Esau despised his birthright. Esau wanted the material wealth of Isaac, he had no use for the spiritual covenant of Faith which was to be passed on to Abraham’s descendants.
The Warrior’s Birthright begins with our Commander and King Jesus Christ, Son of God, Son of Man, and The Firstborn from the dead (Col.1:18).
The Warrior is “born into this birthright,” by our Faith and Trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior; being “born again” into a new life as a new creation in Christ Jesus!(2Corin.5:17).
We didn’t earn this birthright we were born into it and it was given to you and I by the Grace and Mercy of Jesus Christ our Commander!
The Warrior’s Birthright includes Both Spiritual and Material IN Jesus Christ Himself, we are now sons and daughters of Yahweh Almighty God and Joint Heirs with Jesus Christ (Rom.8:14-17).
Oh Hallelujah! Just look at some of the contents of our Birthright:
“In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,
who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.”(Eph.1:13-14)
“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,
as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,
by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”(2Peter 1:2-4)
Oh Hallelujah Warrior! Just chew on this Truth: “What You And I Have ALREADY Been Given as The Warrior’s Birthright -
How Then Should We Live in this World filled with doubt, fear, and unbelief?
We should walk in “The Warrior’s Birthright.” Humbled by God’s Grace and Boldly in His Presence; as the Living Among the Dead.
“Oh Holy Spirit, help us to Walk this way so that others may See Your Work in us and come to Know You and Love You as Lord and Savior! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
