The Birthright

To Abraham, God promised:
And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee Genesis 17:6

To Sarah, God promised:
And I will bless her and give thee a son also by her. Yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her Genesis 17:16

Before Jacob, God promised:
And God said unto him, “I am God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins” Genesis 35:11

The Birthright composes of many blessings: a great multitude of people, exceeding fruitful, control of sea-gates, dew of the heavens, of the fatness of the earth, and plenty of grain and wine, which were dispersed throughout the twelve sons of Jacob, but the three principle Blessings demand special study. They are (1) a Great Nation (2) a Company of Nations, and (3) a Cluster of Kings.Image result for Crown Scepter

Although the Birthright was Joseph’s the Scepter had mysteriously eluded the final blessing given to Ephraim and Manesseh, “for Judah prevailed above his brethren,” and so it followed that the Scepter was given to the Tribe of Judah. This was confirmed in 1 Chronicles 5:1 Now the . . . birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph . . . . 2 For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and from him came the chief ruler, but the birthright was Joseph’s)

Under inspiration, Jacob prophesied that his children will bow down to Judah:

Genesis 49:8 “Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise; thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee. 9 Judah is a lion’s whelp; from the prey, my son, thou art gone up. He stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be.Image result for lion and unicorn pics

The birthright blessing of national greatness were given to Manasseh and Ephraim while the blessing of Kingship to Judah. So the three principled Blessings were given to (1) Great Britain (2) the United States of America, and (3) the Jews in the State of Israel and those in the diaspora.

A scepter is a symbol of kingship. Judah will hold the royal scepter, and his descendants will always rule. Nations of the world, including those of his brothers will bring him tributes and bow down before him. The scenario is very mysterious as this is talking of Judah as a tribe, thus rendering them a tribe of kings, but there will be one special King, and He will be known as the KING of kings and LORD of Lords (Revelation 19:16).
