|Often in life we see people that seem to be born under an extra blessing, with more prosperity and luck than the others in their family. If they are out of money, money just seems to show up in their lives. If they are out of a job, opportunity comes knocking. If they get into a little bit of trouble, they seem to dumb luck out of it. I am not talking about illegal or immoral. (Each of these has a price one must pay for breaking spiritual or governmental laws.)|
Notice families around you that have two or three sons. We almost always see the oldest getting ahead in life, often with strokes of good luck appearing out of nowhere to bless them. Of course, if they lay in bed until noon, drinking or drugging their days away, that is their freewill choice. Not much will come of anything that is left to chance existence.
The second and third sons always seem to work harder to make the same measure of success that the firstborn son seems to gain, as God blesses his efforts. God Himself has given an extra blessing upon the lives of firstborn sons. It is spoken of in Genesis 25 in the Holy Bible. The sons of Abraham, Esau and Jacob struggled over the birthright, the younger one, Jacob even deceiving his father to steal the blessing from his older brother Esau. Eventually he bought the birthright from a hungry Esau for a meal, so he could gain this firstborn blessing upon his life.
The reason it was so special is because it brings extra money and blessings of all sorts upon the family that has it. That is why Jacob was willing to lie, steal or cheat to get it. He knew it would cause him to prosper. This is not recommended behavior.
If you are the parent of a firstborn male child, he has the birthright blessing from God upon his life. If he has older female children above him, it does not matter, as he is the oldest, firstborn male child. All firstborn male children have the birthright.
If a woman has three male children by three different men, each one of them each being the first male child of that particular union, would have the birthright blessing upon their lives. God gave honor to the firstborn males of each family, blessing each one with extra money and prosperity so the oldest could provide for the elderly parents, care for the sisters that never married, and substantiate the family so it could continue on, with another generation to follow. It was His way of preserving the family bloodline.
If the family has only female children and no sons, the firstborn birthright blessing goes to the oldest daughter. She will have an increased amount of positive, money-related prosperity in her life over the other siblings in the same family.
This blessing was not against the other children. It was meant as an extra portion of blessing as the firstborn often have extra responsibilities and care giving obligations in each family.
The only time the birthright moves to another individual in the family is in the event of death. If the oldest brother passes on, within the year the second son will have better opportunities to get ahead in career and finances. It is not an inheritance from one brother to another, but instead a blessing from God to anoint the life of the surviving son, with positive and monetary energy.
Not only is the money noticeably different for the firstborn, also the gifts and talents of the male members of the family ancestry are often found present in the personality of the firstborn son. If the ancestors were great managers of time, material, money, or manpower, the firstborn often has the same qualities, and with minimum training in the specific field of expertise, can learn to excel with these gifts or talents. I am not saying it is an instant success. All achievement takes work.
Over the years of readings, I often see what I call the “money blessing” upon someone’s life. It is almost always the firstborn. When I see this on a life of someone that is not a firstborn child, after questioning the person, I find that there may have been a near-death scare or illness affecting that life whereby the family members pulled together in spirit to pray for urgent help to make a miracle for that child. The miracle does come and with the miracle, because the family bound themselves together in prayer, seeking directions and blessings, the energy from that time forward over that life is blessed. Even in the event that the family prays that a child will not go to prison or pursue a life of crime, the energy is changed forever to bless that child. It does not guarantee success.
The individual decides how they will handle their own personal life. All of the prayers in the world cannot make any individual go against their will. Each of us is able to make our own personal choices. The prayers of our loved ones to heal, bless, or help us come up before God for consideration. The urgency and intensity with which we pray can change lives forever. If there is a tremendous amount of sincerity and faith attached, not only is the answer delivered by a miracle, there seem to be miracles from that time forward when that person is in need.
Their life is changed, through the power of united prayer in the family, petitioning God to make a miracle. In this type situation, the firstborn blessing also seems to be upon the individual that was the concern of the prayers. The firstborn still has their own personal blessing, but the other sibling, through God’s mercy towards intercessory (interceding on someone else’s behalf) prayer, benefits throughout the rest of their life as well.
Should you have a firstborn son, that child carries the blessing of God upon their life of the birthright. Separate sons, firstborn from different fathers, as I mentioned before also have the birthright, as well as the oldest daughters of only female children in a family.
If you are the firstborn son expect to see ways open up for success that are “out of the blue”. All choices are freewill of course, but the firstborn seems to have a very different energy than the others. If you decide to go into business, often you see the most amazing breaks come along to open up opportunities that would normally be hard to get. Success depends on the individual and their drive and commitment, but having God’s firstborn birthright blessing as a covering over your life could only be a plus.
Ladies, if you are married to a firstborn son, you will already have noticed a difference in the dynamics of the family and the finances. There is a difference. If you are looking for a mate, knowing about the birthright is an interesting point to consider.
From my perspective, I see this extra blessing from God on lives all of the time. The firstborn birthright blessing is a biblical historical fact that has been preserved for several thousand years. There must be a reason it was important to God. Making others aware of the extra energy blessing from God upon their lives hopefully is a positive element for them as well. Look around your family and friends and see what energy exists there and how it blesses the firstborn.
God even helps us prepare for the future by insuring the success of the family’s survival through the firstborn birthright. He is a loving and caring God that will make a way for all of us, not just firstborns.
Always know that sincere prayer to God, Jesus or the Holy Spirit will have a positive impact on those you are holding up in prayer. Prayer does change things as we petition God to move in other’s and our behalf, and He shows us His mercy. He never will abandon or fail us if we seek Him.
Prayer can forever seal a blessing over any individual you are praying for. Don’t give up just because you don’t see the results you are seeking right away. God moves in mysterious ways and know He will do that for you and your family, to make a way where there seems to be none. I have seen it happen again and again. Prayer is life changing for you and others. Use your power to pray, not only for yourself, but also for those you love so much. It will be time well spent.
Share this article with others about the firstborns in their lives. It is fun to look around and see what positive impact God is having through His birthright blessing to each and every family.
May He bless you always in your walk with Him,
