Here God says to the Jews who challenged him for letting Gentiles be saved, “who are you, O man, to talk back to God” (v. 20). God says that he will harden who he will harden (v. 18). Here is what I believe is going on with God’s plan and Pharaoh. God gives us free will, but he is at the same time, sovereign. What he wills to happen will.   The opening book of the Bible works hard to establish the theme typically dubbed the “reversal of primogenitor”. It is an indictment on the cultural assumption that the firstborn deserves supreme power and status. This theme is the seedbed for .

The first-born of your sons you shall give to Me. 30 You shall do the same with your oxen and with your sheep. It shall be with its mother seven days; on the eighth day you shall give it to Me. It was unlawful to present the firstborn to God on any other day than the eighth day. This is a very important law that establishes the appointed times. [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of GOD [YaHushua], that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's [Messiah's] own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ [Messiah.

Paul wrote in Col. , taken from The Emphatic Diaglott, 15 He is a likeness of the invisible God—First-born of all creation; 16 Because in Him were created all things 17 and He precedes all things, and in Him all things have been permanently placed. 18 He is also the Head of the body of the congregation; who is the Beginning, the First-born from the dead, that he might become. The term firstborn is significant in the Old Testament, not least because the Lord spared the firstborn sons of Israel during the first Passover via the shed blood of the lamb (Ex. –). Of course, our omniscient God did not need to see blood to tell Israelite and Egyptian apart.

The Firstborn of God by Gail Evans Download PDF EPUB FB2

In the beginning God created heaven and earth. In the Firstborn of God, Gail Evans begins with Genesis 1 and recreates a telling of the biblical story that breaths new life into the word of God, giving it new meaning for the twenty first century/5(6).

In it, he explained Christ’s relationship to God the Father and to creation. Some have claimed that Paul’s description of Christ as the first-born of creation means that Jesus was created -- not eternal, not God.

Such a doctrine, however, conflicts with the rest of the Bible. It was a representation of the gospel message that the true firstborn of God who would later die for the sins of the world, and that all who are covered by the blood of Christ will be saved from their bondage to sin.

It does not indicate that God is mean--especially if we realize that all have sinned (Rom. Firstborn Books Firstborn is a series of Christian Fiction novels written by Karen Kingsbury.

The books explore the romantic journey of Dayne Matthews and Katy Hart, a man and a woman from starkly diverse backgrounds.

Order of Firstborn Series. God calls Israel as His firstborn. As we saw earlier, firstborn is someone who opens the womb. Deut “But the LORD has taken you and brought you out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be His people, an inheritance, as you are this day.

The term applies both to his literal position as firstborn of God: “ when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him” (Hebrews ); firstborn from the dead: “ the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead” (Colossians ); and the One who is supreme: “The Son is the image of.

After the Passover event in Egypt, every firstborn male belonged to God. This implied The Firstborn of God book duties, an obligation later transferred to the Levites (Num ). Of special significance is the divine claim that Israel was God's firstborn (Exod ). This signified Israel's favored status among the nations to be in covenant relationship.

Likewise, God released Satan's grip on the people of His church—His New Testament firstborn—by allowing His Firstborn Son, Jesus Christ, to be killed as our Passover (I Corinthians ).

We are then free to escape this world and our sins, just as Israel left Egypt on the first day of Unleavened Bread (Exodus ). God replaces the firstborn with the Levites to foreshadow the atoning ministry of Christ. We’re returning to Exodus this evening because there’s more to discuss on the topic of the firstborn in Israel.

To begin let’s read the passage again. Colossians Context. 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every.

The firstborn of every womb, whether man or beast, that is offered to the LORD belongs to you. But you must surely redeem every firstborn son and every firstborn. But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.

Hebrews Jesus, who is God the Son, is equal with God the Father (John ). Jesus is God in human form, the visible image of the invisible God. The unseen God became seen, in the form of Jesus. The phrase "firstborn of all creation," has caused considerable controversy.

Wood. The understanding of Israel as the national firstborn of God is found in the Dead Sea scrolls 1Q/4Q "Instruction," and probably 4Q the "Prayer of Enosh" as well as in Ben Sira. Hellenistic and Diaspora Judaism The concept of the firstborn was heavily present in Hellenistic Judaism among the Second Temple Diaspora.

Moses said, “Thus says the Lord, ‘About midnight I am going out into the midst of Egypt, and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of the Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the slave girl who is behind the millstones; all the firstborn of the cattle as well.

Moreover, there shall be a great cry in all the land of Egypt, such as there has. (5) All the firstborn shall dieThe Heb. word translated firstborn is applied only to males; and thus the announcement was that in every family the eldest son should be cut off.

In Egypt, as in most other countries, the law of primogeniture prevailed--the eldest son was the hope, stay, and support of the household, his father's companion, his mother's joy, the object of his brothers.

The title “firstborn of the dead” for Jesus is of great theological importance, especially with Easter in the background. The Greek word for “firstborn” that John uses is prōtotokos, a word that literally refers to birth order—the first child born.

Colossians KJ21 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. The Firstborn of God is an in-depth, yet concise, look at the contradictions in the Bible.

This book may well have the answers that you have been looking for. Throughout history our religious beliefs have been instrumental in shaping our social and political strictures. Though God possesses only ONE firstborn Son through procre-ation (Jesus), as in the human realm (cf.

John ; Heb. ), He can possess OTHER firstborn sons through adoption (i.e., God taking a son and adopting that son into a firstborn status).

And this is EXACTLY what God has done with one son and will do yet future with another son."He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.

17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together," (Colossians ). When God selected the Levites as his firstborn, He instructed Moses to count all of the firstborn of Israel and the number of Levites.

This is the meaning behind the book of "Numbers." A comparison match was made and there were firstborn of Israel more than the number of Levites.
