Birthright – Rev. Dr. Isaac Opoku-Asare


Understanding Your Spiritual Birthright


This sermon emphasizes the importance of understanding and appropriating one’s birthright as a child of God in order to experience spiritual growth and elevate one’s position in life.


Key Points

The birthright in the spiritual realm is not the same as the physical birthright in human society.


Jacob’s declaration of his grandsons, Ephraim and Manasseh, as his own children and blessing them before his own sons symbolizes the intentional crossing of the spiritual birthright. The order of heaven differs from the order of man, and it is the order of God that prevails in one’s life.


The birthright is a call from God, not based on individual ability, and is a covenant that belongs to those whom God has chosen.


Loss of birthright can occur due to lack of self-control, as seen in the example of Ruben and his unstable nature.

  Jacob understood this principle and was destined to take over from his older brother, Esau, as predetermined by God.


One reason people lose their birthright is neglecting to value and develop the gifts and talents God has given them.
