48:5 And now your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, aremine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.Manasseh was a grandson but he waslifted up to become the firstborn who receivedthe right of the firstborn
. 1 Chronicles 5:1-2
5:1 Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel--he wasindeed the firstborn, but because he defiled his father's bed, his birthright was given to the sons of Joseph, the son of Israel, so that the genealogy is not listed according to the birthright;
5:2 yet Judah prevailed over his brothers, and from him camea ruler, although the birthright was Joseph's--
Reuben was the firstborn who had the firstborn right, but he defiled his father's bed. It refers to the fornication. He did not respect the holy marriage, so he lost the right.
The firstborn right should have come to Simeon and Levi, but they had the sin of evil and and bitterness.
34:1 Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.
34:2 And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her and lay with her, and violated her.
34:6 Then Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to speak with him.
34:7 And the sons of Jacob came in from the field when they heard it;and the men were grieved and very angry, because he had done a disgraceful thing in Israel by lying with Jacob's daughter, a thing which ought not to be done.
34:13 But the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father, and spoke deceitfully, because he had defiled Dinah their sister.
34:14 And they said to them, "We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one who is uncircumcised, for that would bea reproach to us.
34:25 Now it came to pass on the third day, when they were in pain, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, each took his sword and came boldly upon the city and killed all the males.
They did evil, murder, and deceit, so the firstborn right went to Judah according to the genealogy.
Nevertheless, the firstborn right fell to Joseph according to the giving.
Judah begot Jesus, the Bridegroom of Heaven or the firstborn.
Joseph was born at the old age of Jacob. Jacob refers the Holy Spirit God and Joseph refers to the church at the last rain or the Bride of Heaven, who also has the firstborn right.Manassehwasthe firstborn of Joseph, so he had the firstborn right. He was born in Egypt. It describes that God liftsup the Gentiles to receive the firstborn right
. Genesis 41:51
41:51 Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: "For God has made me forget all my toil and all my father's house."The conditions
are as follows:
The firstborn right means
- "For God has made me forget all my toil..."
We must be set free from the sins up to the peak that is the sin of eating-drinking and marrying-being given in marriage or the one of Reuben.
- "... and all my father's house"
The old father is Satan, the father of murderers and liars.
It means that we must be set free from the sin of hatred and lie or the one of Simeon and Levi.
- The right to inherit theKingdom of Heaven.
8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
8:17 and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him,that we may also be glorified together.
It starts from now on this world that we receive the inheritance from Jesus, namely the cross of Christ. The meanings are as follows:
There is glory behind the cross. It starts from now on this world up to the eternal glory.
- The suffering in the flesh to repent, stop sinning, and return to God. Thus, we can live in righteousness and holiness.
- The suffering in the flesh because of Jesus, the right ministry, and the true teaching word.
- The right to get marriage.
It is the right to enter the spiritual or perfect marriage, namely the marriage supper of the Lamb.
The connection between the Head and the body is in the neck. It refers the worship prayer.
The worship prayer meansas follows:
The worship prayer is the process to tear or crucify the flesh, so we will be renewed from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It starts from the gentle heart, namely bravely confessing the mistakes and sins. We can be obedient until the flesh does not sound anymore.
- It is the way from the Head to the Bodyto give everything that we need. The guarantee is the sacrifice of Christ.
8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God isfor us, who can beagainst us?
8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
- It is the way from the body to the Head. We become perfect and glorious as Jesus is through the worship prayer.
21:5 "Tell the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you,lowly, and sitting on a donkey,acolt, the foal of a donkey.' "
Jesus is gentle and He sit on the gentle colt.
7:9 "I watched till thrones were put in place,and the Ancient of Days was seated;His garment waswhite as snow,and the hair of His head waslike pure wool.His throne wasa fiery flame,its wheels a burning fire;
We become the throne of God. There is a fiery flame of Holy Spirit working in our life.
15:16 that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
As a result, Holy Spirit renews our life until we can be the sweet-smelling aroma. Our life steps are the miracle ones spiritually and physically.
4:6 So he answered and said to me: "This isthe word of the Lordto Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,'says the Lordof hosts.
4:7 'Who areyou, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall becomea plain! And he shall bring forth the capstonewith shouts of "Grace, grace to it!" ' "
Holy Spirit is able to make the mountain plain or finish the impossible problems until we are changed to become perfect when Jesus comes a second time.
God blesses us.
