Scripture: Genesis 27:21-33, 37
There is something we need to understand about a birthright. Once it was sold it was gone. Because Easu despised it, he could not get it back. Once Jacob had gotten the birthright then Isaac’s response to Easu is very, very telling for us today. It brings forth a point that we need to comprehend that we find in both verse 33 and verse 37. Verse 33 says, “Then Isaac trembled exceedingly, and said, ‘Who? Where is the one who hunted game and brought it to me? I ate all of it before you came, and I have blessed him—and indeed he shall be blessed’” And the Word goes on to say in verse 37, “Then Isaac answered and said to Esau, ‘Indeed I have made him your master, and all his brethren I have given to him as servants; with grain and wine I have sustained him. What shall I do now for you, my son?’” A birthright is a sovereign thing with God. The only way we forfeit it is to despise it. If we do not despise it, and do lay claim to it we have got it. That should be encouraging to every single one of us who are believers in America today. There is a birthright for Christians in this nation that was given to us in our godly heritage and we have a right to lay hold of it. And no demonically led leader can live in the face of God when you and I call Him into action and raise a wall and stand against the evil that undermines our birthright. Long ago through divine agreement America was set to serve God. Those leaders and judges who consistently, arrogantly stand against God’s wisdom need to be faced with a divinely-inspired judicial response. When we pray against these individuals, it is a merciful prayer not only for the nation but also for those very individuals as well. Job 33:16-18 says, “He may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn man from wrongdoing and keep him from pride, to preserve his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword.” If we begin to pray, God will begin to visit with His dealings which have salvation as a goal. The godly calling which is this nation’s birthright can be reclaimed! “Now therefore, be wise O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Kiss the son lest He be angry And you perish in the way When His wrath is kindled but a little…” from Psalm 2 is a warning to judges and leaders and one well worth praying. As we pray in the Spirit on a regular basis, we can expect God to pour forth judicial proclamations directly from His Word to birth His ways and remove America’s greatest obstacles.
