‘We’ve Sold Our Birthright’

“I will break the pride of your power” (Leviticus 26:19)


Has the USA sold its birthright to foreigners?  At least one secular source suggests so:

We’ve Sold Our Birthright for a Mess of Porridge

Aug 17, 2011 excerpts…in the year 2000….Washington owed foreigners a total of $1 trillion….Washington now owes foreign investors over FOUR TIMES MORE than it did in 2000.

We have literally sold our birthright — our right to control our own destiny — to foreigners!

…All of this is just the preamble to the ultimate catastrophe…http://www.moneyandmarkets.com/six-steps-to-financial-doomsday-step-3-we%e2%80%99ve-sold-our-birthright-for-a-mess-of-porridge-46809

The headline of the above article is referring to a story in the Book of Genesis where Esau sells his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of lentil porridge/stew

29 Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary. 30 And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom.   31 But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.”   32 And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”  33 Then Jacob said,  “Swear to me as of this day.”  So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. 34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright. (Genesis 29-34).

But what about the United States?

Most people do not realize it, but there is another birthright story in the Bible, and it does affect the USA.  In Genesis 48, Jacob (Israel) passed on the birthright that he had to the sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh:

16 Bless the lads; Let my name be named upon them, And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; And let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth…

19 “…He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations.” 20 So he blessed them that day, saying, “By you Israel will bless, saying, ‘May God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh!’ ” (Genesis 48:19-20).

This is birthright transfer by Jacob is also confirmed by a statement later in the Bible:

1 Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel–he was indeed 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; 2 yet Judah prevailed over his brothers, and from him came a ruler, although the birthright was Joseph’s (1 Chronicles 5:1-2).

We in the Living Church of God have long taught that Manasseh, who was one of the only two sons of Joseph who received the birthright, is best represented in modern society by the United States of America (we also teach that Ephraim is best represented by the British-descended peoples of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, with others scattered elsewhere).

But unlike Esau who at least got real food, the USA has been selling its portion of the birthright for trinkets and manufactured things that often are not needed.  Also, because they are being bought from alien peoples, this has resulted in a reduction in American manufacturing jobs.  This has hurt the economy as well as the USA’s ability to compete.

Instead of listening to what the Bible teaches, the USA has basically rebelled against God’s law.  Notice a prophecy about getting indebted to foreigners/aliens and ultimately be taken over by them, because of that:

43 The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. 45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you (Deuteronomy 28:42-45).

3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry…5 Indeed, because he transgresses by wine, He is a proud man… 6 “Will not all these take up a proverb against him, And a taunting riddle against him, and say, ‘Woe to him who increases What is not his–how long? And to him who loads himself with many pledges’? 7 Will not your creditors rise up suddenly? Will they not awaken who oppress you? And you will become their booty. 8 Because you have plundered many nations, All the remnant of the people shall plunder you (Habakkuk 2:3,5,6-8).

The USA is the most indebted nation in the history of humanity and the UK may be the most indebted per capita.

National repentance is the only real long-term hope for the USA and the other Anglo-nations (and it seems to be too late for that, but personal repentance is still possible), There are carnal solutions that the Anglo-nations could do now that could help extend the situation, but too many of their leaders have rejected God and have the type of “reprobate mind” that prevents them from seeing even those “convenient” options (cf. Romans 1:18-32, KJV).

According to Bible prophecy, the end of the Anglo-dominance of the world is coming (Jeremiah 30:7; Daniel 11:39), and the final age of the Gentiles (Luke 21:20-24; Daniel 11:39) will be here in a relatively few years. And there are likely to be a lot more troubles (Mark 13:8) before it gets even worse (Mark 13:19-20).
