First Born-Birthright

First Born- The Birthright Son

In Exodus, the nation of Israel was called God’s “Firstborn son.” In Psalms, David was called “son of God” and even commanded to proclaim that he was God’s “begotten son” on the day he was king. Solomon was also called the “son of God.” Angels, just and pious men, and the kings of Israel were all called “sons of God.

Three anointed people in the Bible who could also be called either sons of God or people of God were Prophets, Kings, and Priests. Many claim they are God’s sons and sometimes as men of God, but their work is nerve-wracking. How can they claim such things with courage when they are only interested in making money and leading people to a broader road of destruction? They should be ashamed of themselves and not indeed the sons of God.

As it is written in the book of Luke, Adam is the Son of God, the firstborn among humankind, begotten not made but created by God the Father Almighty. The Father of humanity invited the Father of all lies into their lives and gave up all his perfection: paradise, perfect life, and the first human being fellowshipping with the Father face to face.

They were chastised, resulting in being out of the Garden of Eden (paradise-heaven) for good, and they brought Sin into the world we call Earth. Adam and Eve gave birth to two sons; their firstborn, Cain, was a farmer, and his brother Abel was a shepherd. Another son was born and named Seth, the first human to call the name of the LORD; this is considered the first prayer in the Bible. He replaced Abel, and the two humans sprung the Cainites and the Sethites race.

First, Adam was created on the Earth, while the second, Adam (Jesus), came from above. The first man, Adam, became a living being,” the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural. No mathematically, logically, or philosophically actual second will exist without the first. The first Adam brought Sin into the body of a man—Romans 5:12: “Sin came into the world through one man, and his Sin brought death with it. 

As a result, death has spread to the whole human race because everyone has sinned. Romans 5:12, CSB: “Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death spread to all people because all sinned.” Jesus, the second and last Adam, brought Sin out of the body (John 1:29) and redeemed the sinful world’s evil. Please note that the original text says Sin, not sins.

Through the first Adam, punishment came to humanity. Thus, there was a need for a second Adam to deliver the first Adam from punishment.v Adam was created on Eartharth, while the second Adam (Jesus) came from heaven above the ground.— 1Corinthians 15:47.

First, Adam sinned and separated us from God; Second, Adam (Jesus) reconciled us to God. Although man’s body will die and see corruption, the Second Adam becomes a new life-giver born again from above, and life and resurrection are the hope of life.

Jesus declares that in the world to come, “The last shall be first, and the first will be the last.”

By being the firstborn son of Isaac, Esau was guaranteed to receive a significant inheritance and the promise but lost it all when he sold his birthright to his brother Jacob for a bowl of pottage.

Jacob recognized the birthright of his firstborn son, Reuben. Still, he gave the firstborn rights to Joseph, and the same thing happened to Abraham, disinheriting Ishmael in favor of his son Isaac from another woman.

In Matthew 20:1–16, Jesus says that any “laborer” who accepts the invitation to work in the vineyard, no matter how late in the day, will receive an equal reward with those who have been faithful the longest. Therefore, it is better to start life in its deepest pain and suffering and endure it because it has a prize at the end with everlasting joy. It doesn’t matter how you walk your life in this cruel world; the important thing is how you finish the race.

Glory be to God
