Genesis 25:30-34

“And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.”


Your spiritual birthright is the Holy Spirit. When you reject the Light of this day, you reject your means to the blood of Jesus Christ (1 John 1:7). That is rejecting your spiritual birthright. Walking in the Light is walking with Christ and in the Holy Spirit’s way. Securing your spiritual birthright is keeping with the Light of the Holy Ghost in your day.


In ancient Israel, the birthright belonged to the firstborn son of each family. It consisted of double what the father would leave to the others. The firstborn with the birthright would have double what other family members received of the flocks, herds, land, and all that the father possessed. It meant the difference between poverty and riches in many families in Israel.


Jacob wanted the birthright from his brother, Esau. The Bible says here that Esau sold his right to the birthright for frivolous reasons. As it was with Jacob, God’s chosen one even from his mother's womb, your spiritual birthright should mean everything in the world to you. A Believer should be willing to sell out everything of the world in order to receive the Holy Ghost. Christ alone has the power to save you and make you whole; the birthright to the Believer is the most important thing.


Is your determination for your spiritual birthright the same as Jacob’s was? Seek it with all you have, and when you have it, hold on to it with everything you are.

Now, notice what he did, what this fellow did. Esau went out and tried to take care of his poor, old, blind daddy; and Jacob, seemingly, he didn't care what happened to him. But there's one thing Jacob wanted, that was the birthright. Regardless of what come, how he had to get it, what level he had to come on, that birthright was all he cared for. And Esau, the Bible said, despised his birthright; the Bible said that. And the Bible said, "Except there come some vain fornicator among you, like that evil person Esau who despised his birthright and sold it for a mess of pottage…" Now, what is a birthright? It's the right. That's what I'm trying to tell you now. This Holy Spirit is your Birthright; that's your Birthright. That's your God given right.
