Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread introduce the significance and symbols of the firstborn in God’s master plan. God placed great importance the authority, rights and privileges of the firstborn. The birthright went to the firstborn at the discretion of God, based on the actions of the firstborn. In ancient Israelite, the firstborn served as priests and offered sacrifices to God on behalf of the family. God later selected and hallowed the Levites to serve in that important role to help the people remain in a justified position with God. Jesus Christ, the ultimate fulfillment of the rights of the firstborn is the firstborn among many brethren. When he returns we shall be like him for we shall see him as he is.

    Superb spiritual gourmet Texas treat! A delicacy for spiritual connoisseurs via our biblical scholar & Church of God patriarch Dr. Ward delivering here an extraordinary & impressive message for those ready to challenge their minds. Birthright is not always the reward of the first-born; it is either at God’s discretion in the case of Jacob & Ephraim or as a consequence of sin in the case of Reuben. Abraham’s Godly birth-right promise was passed on to Isaac & Jacob. The patriarchal priesthood was then transferred to the house of Levi down to Jesus Christ granting us, via God’s unfathomable grace, access to the Holy of Holies 24/7. We are God’s Royal Priesthood; God’s chosen First-Born Elect; His Inheritance following on the footsteps of the True Wave-Sheaf Offering Jesus Christ our Elder Brother blazing our spiritual trail into God’s Eternal Family-Membership. He is The First-Born of the First Fruit among many Brethren. He is Abraham’s Seed just as we are, according to God’s promise. We are the Israel of God but, do we truly have the spiritual maturity & awareness, just like Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Samuel & Isaiah had, to respond to God’s personal calling by saying: God Here am I?
