Cool

What a ecclectic mix to follow .... whatever the tangents our basics are around Kaneh Bosm and Anointing, now see through the fog -

Ancient ministry scribes, modern computer abstrative matches and presto .... a MO for HAO

Aladdins Lamp - the Genie

The Mystery of Light Lamps duration - a burning oil !!!

Deep Fried Shrimp - wow !!!

In antiquity oils as balm soothed the largest organ know to man, the skin - feet particularly. Greasy hair the primordial oil. Tricomes are a plants oil. Real happy balmers the ancients were. Ahhhhhhh tradition.

Out of it all comes a period of Holy Annointing Oil, such a development from the Cadikists, the, a, life's, mana for eating (browines based on residual palnt matter after milking for oils) and pristine oil to heal (cure even) diabetes and other symptoms and offer the psycotropical exestential voyage.

There is a history to view in the bringing forward of oil. How we have a huge dicotomy between Annointing and cooking and burning oils, now, is what the counsil will consider and try recommend understandings and a HAO and mana convention, not buds, convention as a future ..

Bud conventions for the gardner's side of course, but the principbles and properties of the oils is where our intrests should stay and the sub domain gardening be pointed at what THC is developed and why and how does it "work" better medicinaly or psycotropicly.

The Messengers up to Mani

Jesus of light was the first of the messengers sent to redeem humanity from the ensnarement of the flesh and of Darkness, being entrusted with special knowledge, or revelation (not to be confused with Jesus of Nazareth, who comes later. This is the Jesus of light referred to earlier). His role as redeemer is continued in the world as the Great Nous, intelligence, which emanated from him (according to Klimkeit, the deity emanated from the Living Spirit). This Nous is the source of the message that all the worlds true religious leaders brought. He is the father of all apostles on earth. The human soul, i.e., the trapped Light Elements (air, wind, light, water, fire), is adorned by the Great Nous with his five limbs or sons, the hypostases of the five attributes of the Kingdom of Light (intelligence, knowledge, reason, thought, and deliberation), which in turn engender the five virtues (love, faith, contentment, patience, and wisdom) in the soul. These virtues aid the human soul in withstanding the attack from the Kingdom of Darkness and its attempt to perpetuate the existence of Light in the world. The presence of this divine intelligence is witnessed in a line of perfect men: Seth, Noah, Abraham, Shem, Nikotheos, Enoch, as well as Buddha, Zoroaster, and Jesus the Messiah. The last and most perfect of these is Mani, whose teaching was imparted to directly by the Jesus if Light.(Lieu 1985:1Cool

Such knowledge, once known by the human soul, does not bring about immediate salvation. It is a constant battle between the soul and the forces of Darkness. The Dark constantly tries to lull humanity into slipping back into sin and worldliness. Mani calls this the struggle between the 'Old Man' of the world and the 'New Man' of the light. (Language borrowed from Paul, referenced in Lieu 1985:1Cool It is through forgetfulness that the soul sins. Therefore, it becomes a constant, diligent process, ever mindful of the dangers of this world, to reach the Kingdom of Light in the Future Moment. Sin is therefore an act of forgetfulness, not an act of violation.

Waiter - is the Wine, Kaneh Bosm, 1000 B.C. here yet ? Yes add it to my American Express Thanks !!!

http://cannabis.net/articles/jesus-cannabis.html


Ancient wines were always fortified, like the "strong wine" of the Old Testament, with herbal additives: opium, datura, belladonna, mandrake and henbane. Common incenses, such as myrrh, ambergris and frankincense are psychotropic; the easy availability and long tradition of cannabis use would have seen it included in the mixtures. Modern medicine has looked into using cannabis as a pain reliever and in treating multiple sclerosis. It may well be that ancient people knew, or believed, that cannabis had healing power.

Whoooops, sorry - translation error. It's Kaneh Bosm not Calamus.

But remember also, snake venom is used to build tolerence and some other "toxins" are used in surgery - a fine line.

Totaly safe Kaneh Bosm - worst case, a slight to heroic hallucination.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_Flag

http://www.inchem.org/documents/jecfa/jecmono/v16je04.htm

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Asarone&btnG=Google+Search



ß-ASARONE

Explanation

ß-asarone and calamus have not previously been evaluated by the
Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives.

ß-asarone (cis-isomer of 2,4,5-trimethoxy-l-propenylbenzene) is a
constituent of oil of calamus, a flavouring agent derived from the
dried rhizome of Acorus calamus Linn. The ß-asarone content of
calamus oils varies with source of the plant. Indian Acorus calamus
from the Jammu area is tetraploid and yields an oil containing
approximately 75% ß-asarone; Acorus calamus from Kashmir is hexaploid
and yields an oil containing approximately 5% ß-asarone (Vashist &
Handa, 1964). The European variety of the plant is diploid and also
yields an oil with approximately 5% ß-asarone (Larry, 1973). Normally,
only the oil of the diploid variety is used for flavouring aromatic
alcoholic beverages (Usseglio-Tomasset, cited in Larry, 1973). The
roots and rhizomes of Acorus calamus have been used in the Ayurvedic
system of medicine for treating a variety of diseases such as epilepsy
add hysteria (Madan et al., 1960).

BIOLOGICAL DATA

BIOCHEMICAL ASPECTS

Absorption, distribution and excretion

A small amount of ninhydrin-positive material was excreted in the
urine of rats following administration of ß-asarone in doses of
75-300 mg/kg bw i.p. Trans-asarone yielded 10-15 times the amount
found with the cis-isomer in the same doses. The substances were not
identified but were postulated to require the presence of the allyl or
propenyl double bond for formation (Oswald et al., 1969). Similar
ninhydrin-positive materials excreted after the administration of
safrole were later identified as tertiary amino propiophenones (Oswald
et al., 1971).

TOXICOLOGICAL STUDIES

Special studies on microbes and insects

An essential oil of Acorus calamus, with an asarone content of
approximately 80%, showed an in vitro antitubercular action and
inhibited the growth of gram-negative organisms. The oil was also
toxic to flies (Chapra et al., 1957). ß-asarone had an anti-gonadal
action on the insect Dysdereus koenigii; it did not act as a
juvenile hormone nor as an antiallatotropic compound (Saxena et al.,
1977).

Special studies on mutagenicity

ß-asarone, at concentrations of 2-200 µg/plate, was not mutagenic
in the Ames test with Salmonella typhimurium strains TA-98, TA-100,
TA-1535, TA-1537, and TA-1538 with metabolic activation. Activity
without metabolic activation was apparently not tested (Hsia et al.,
1979).

alpha-asarone was inactive in the Ames test (Salmonella
typhimurium TA) with and without activation at concentrations of
50 ppm and 5000 ppm (0.005 and 0.5%). In a similar study with
ß-asarone, ß-asarone was inactive at the 50 ppm (0.005%) level, but
was active at the 5000 ppm (0.5%) level with activation (Yabiku,
1980),

Special studies on pharmacology

The distilled volatile oil of roots and rhizomes of an Indian
variety of Acorus calamus, in doses of 20-100 mg/kg bw, (1)
prolonged sleeping time with pentobarbital, hexabarbital and ethanol
in mice, (2) lowered body temperature in mice, (3) increased the
toxicity of Metrazole in rats, and (4) had no effect on amphetamine
toxicity in aggregated mice but potentiated the action of reserpine in
reducing amphetamine toxicity in this circumstance. In anaesthetized
cats, doses of 1-32 mg/kg bw decreased blood pressure and increased
heart rate. The blood pressure was not affected by carotid occlusion,
atropinization, adrenergic or ganglionic blockage or spinal
preparation. Treatment with the oil dilated blood vessels of the
splanchnic area in cats and constricted the vessels of the frogs hind
leg. The oil prevented the action of acetylcholine, histamine, and
barium chloride on isolated guinea-pig ileum (Dandiya & Cullumbine,
1959). The hypnotic-potentiating action of Indian Acorus oil was only
partially blocked by LSD in contrast to the potentiating action of
reserpine which was completely blocked. Mice treated with Acorus oil,
50 mg/kg i.p., become ataractic (sedated without any marked decrease
in awareness); combined treatment with iproniazed and Acorus oil
resulted in excitation (Dandiya et al., 1959b). The volatile oil of
European Acorus calamus had a similar hypnotic-potentiating effect
to that of the Indian oil (Dandiya et al., 1959a).

The essential oil of Indian Acorus calamus had a quinidine-like
action in combating auricular fibrillation and flutter and ventricular
fibrillation in anaesthetized dogs and in preventing or abolishing
veratrine action on isolated frog muscle. It protected against
electrically induced seizures but not Metrazol seizures in the rat
(Madan et al., 1960).

Pretreatment with Indian Acorus oil had a reserpine-like action
in depleting rat brain of noradrenaline and 5-hydroxy-tryptamine
(Malhotra et al., 1961). Incubation of rat brain homogenates with
Acorus oil inhibited oxygen uptake; LSD partially blocked the in
inhibition whereas 5-hydroxy-tryptamine potentiated the inhibition
(Dhalla et al., 1961). The hypnotic potentiating action of Indian
Acorus oil was reduced by pretreatment with LSD or dibenzyline (DBZ)
in mice. A combination of LSD and DBZ potentiated barbiturate sleeping
time; this action was not affected by Acorus oil which suggests the
action of Acorus oil may be mediated through serotonin and catechol
amines as the action of reserpine is. Acorus oil also significantly
decreased the disappearance of pentobarbital from the blood in dogs
(Malhotra et al., 1962).

Indian Acorus oil, in doses of 10-100 mg/kg bw i.p. had a
sedative-tranquillizing action in rats, mice, cats, dogs, and monkeys.
Doses of 25 and 50 mg/kg bw produced vomiting in cats, dogs, and
monkeys. Doses of 10-150 mg/kg bw i.p. depressed spontaneous and
forced muscle activity in mice, with the greater depression in
spontaneous activity. Acorus oil inhibited overt somatic reflexes but
did not appreciably affect the neuromuscular function in the
anaesthetized cat since stimulation of the reticular formation
overcame the patellar reflex inhibition. These actions suggest an
action of Acorus oil at the spinal cord and subcortical levels of the
CNS. Acorus oil in vitro inhibited monoamine oxidase activity and
1- and d-amino acid oxidase activity of rat liver and kidney (Dhalla &
Bhattacharya, 1968).

Dandiya et al. (1959a) considered the hypnotic-potentiating
activity of the Indian oil to be in the hydrocarbon fraction or in an
oxygenated fraction not removed by the methods used in fractionating
the oil. Asarone, ß-asarone, and a third substance, not identified,
were considered to be responsible for the hypnotic-potentiating action
of the Indian oil (Baxter et al., 1960). ß-asarone doubled sleeping
time with sodium pentobarbital in mice at a dose of 50 mg/kg bw i.p.
and doubled the sleeping time with ethanol at a dose of 75 mg/kg (Seto
& Keup, 1969). The action of asarone and ß-asarone, alone or in
combination with either reserpine or chloropromazine, on conditioned
avoidance behaviour in rats, fighting behaviour in mice, and
electroshock convulsions in rats was determined. Both asarone and
ß-asarone alone blocked conditioned avoidance behaviour in some rats.
Asarone suppressed fighting behaviour; ß-asarone did not. Asarone
potentiated the action of reserpine and chlorpromazine on conditioned
avoidance behaviour and fighting behaviour; ß-asarone did not. Asarone
protected against electroshock convulsions, but ß-asarone increased
duration of spasm. Asarone potentiated the lethal effect of
chlorpromazine during electroshock convulsions; ß-asarone did not.
Pretreatment with Acorus oil, asarone, or ß-asarone did not increase
the concentration of 5-hydroxytryptamine in rat brain (Dandiya &
Menon, 1963).

Special studies on teratogenicity

Chicken embyro

Eggs were inoculated in the vitelinum sac with 0.2 ml of a
solution containing 0.15 to 15 mg of European oil or Indian oil, or
oil deprived of ß-asarone, and ß-asarone or 0.04-4.0 mg of alpha- or
ß-asarone. There was an absence of teratogenic effects due to the
calamus oil and alpha-asarone. In the case of ß-asarone at the
0.04 mg/egg, 43% of the embryo survived. At 4.00 mg/egg of ß-asarone,
there was 100% lethality (Yabiku, 1980).

Short-term studies

Rat

Jammu oil of calamus (JOC) was fed in the diet to groups of 10
male and 10 female rats at 0, 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, and 1.0% for 18 weeks.
Growth was depressed at all levels and mortality increased at levels
of 0.25% and greater; gross liver changes and fluid in the abdominal
and/or pleural cavities were observed at necropsy in rats fed these
levels. These levels also produced dose-related microscopic pathology
in the liver and heart. The hepatic changes consisted of variation in
hepatic cell size with distortion of architecture, capsular thickening
proliferation of bile duct epithelium, and portal area fibrosis with
haemosiderin deposition. The heart changes consisted of degeneration
characterized by slow necrosis of muscle fibres, early fibrosis, and
infiltration with mononuclear cells (Hagan et al., 1967; Taylor et
al., 1967).

Groups of 11 male and 11 female rats received dietary levels of
0, 0.27, 1.67 and 5.3% of a hydroalcoholic extract of the rhizome of
Acorus calamus (European variety) for 13 weeks. An additional
group of the same size received 0.1% Jammu oil of calamus (JOC) in the
diet. The ß-asarone content of the diet was 0, 30, 184 and 583 ppm
(0, 0.003, 0.0184 and 0.0583%) respectively, for the hydroalcoholic
extracts, and 710 ppm (0.071%) for the JOC diet, on the basis of
analytical data in the report. Growth depression was noted in the
JOC-treated group. No gross or microscopic effects or effects on
haematology, clinical chemistry, urinalysis, or organ weights was
found in any of the test groups (Weinberg, 1969).

The short-term toxicity of JOC, European oil of calamus (EOC) and
Kashmir oil of calamus (KOC) administered in the diet or by gavage was
compared in rats. Groups of 10 male and 10 female rats received 0,
1.0% JOC, 1.0% EOC, or 1.0% Koc in the diet or 0 (7 ml corn
oil/kg bw), 250 mg JOC/kg, 847 mg EOC, or 1082 mg Koc/kg by gavage
daily, seven days a week for 9-14 weeks. In the feeding study, atrophy
of cardiac muscle cells (JOC, EOC, Koc), fatty infiltration of the
myocardium (JOC only) and cardiac fibrosis (JOC, EOC) were observed.
Hepatic damage was also produced by dietary administration with the
JOC rats showing the most serious effects. Fatty degeneration occurred
in the centro-lobular region indicating its association with chronic
passive hyperaemia. Hepatic passive hyperaemia was observed in all
groups, including the controls, but was most prominent in the JOC rats
and was considered indicative of cardiac insufficiency. Coagulative
necrosis in the centro-lobular region, hepatic fibrosis, and bile duct
hyperplasia were also observed in the JOC rats. Heart and liver damage
of the same types seen in the feeding study were observed in the
gavage study. The severity of heart damage and liver damage was in the
order JOC, EOC, Koc (Taylor, 1981).

Guinea-pig

Groups of four male and two female guinea-pigs were treated with
0 (untreated control), 0 (solvent (olive oil) control), or 0.01 ml
Indian Acorus oil/100 g bw i.p. daily, six days a week, for six weeks.
No effects on physical condition or gross pathology were observed.
Hard nodules, considered due to local irritation, formed at the site
of the injections, but these disappeared in a few days (Chopra et al.,
1957).

Long-term studies

Rat

Groups of 25 male and 25 female rats were fed diets containing 0,
400, 800, or 2000 ppm (0, 0.04, 0.08, or 0.2%) ß-asarone for two
years. A positive control group of the same size received 2500 ppm
(0.25%) JOC. None of the group receiving 2000 ppm (0.2%) ß-asarone or
2500 ppm (0.25%) JOC survived more than 84 weeks; mortality was also
increased on the 800 ppm (0.08%) dose. Median survival time in the
females was less than in the males in these groups. The gross
pathological changes observed were serous fluid in the abdominal and
pleural cavities, liver and kidney changes, and tumourous masses in
the intestinal tract. The tumours were identified as leiomyosarcomas
of the small intestine and were found in one rat on 400 ppm (0.04%),
six on 800 ppm (0.08%), nine on 2000 ppm (0.2%) and one on 2500 ppm
(0.25%) JOC. All the test rats with leiomyosarcomas were males. The
earliest tumour was observed in a rat 52 weeks old on the 2000 ppm
(0.2%) dose. Two leiomyosarcomas were also noted in control females

but the location differed from that of the tumours in the treated
animals. Atrophy of cardiac muscle cells occurred in controls and all
test groups but was most prominent in the 2000 ppm (0.2%) ß-asarone
and 2500 ppm (0.25%) JOC groups. Cardiac fibrosis generally paralleled
the incidence of cardiac atrophy. Fatty degeneration and fatty
infiltration were also in the heart more severe in the treated groups.
Thrombosis within the chambers of the heart was observed in the 800
and 2000 ppm (0.08 and 0.27%) ß-asarone and 2500 ppm (0.25%) JOC
treated groups. Passive hyperaemia of the lung, kidneys and liver was
more prominent in the test than control animals indicating faulty
cardiac function in the test animals. Incidence of hepatic angiectasis
and hepatic coagulative necrosis also tended to increase with
increasing ß-asarone dose. Both sexes on 800 and 2000 ppm (0.08 and
0.2%) ß-asarone and 2500 ppm (0.25%) JOC had slightly depressed body
weights throughout the study; the males on 400 ppm (0.04%) ß-asarone
also had depressed body weights at termination but the number of
survivors was small. Haemoglobin, haematocrit, and red and white cell
counts were normal except that when the test animals became sick they
became anaemic with lowered haemoglobin, haematocrit, and red cell
count (Taylor, 1981).

Groups of 25 male and 25 female rats were fed diets containing 0,
500, 1000, 2500 and 5000 ppm (0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.25 and 0.5%) JOC for two
years. Mortality was increased in relation to dose with females dying
earlier than males, in all the treated groups. All the 5000 ppm (0.5%)
group were dead by 45 weeks, all the 2500 ppm (0.25%) group by 68
weeks and all the 1000 ppm (0.1%) group by 104 weeks. Three major
gross abnormalities were observed: liver damage, fluid in the pleural
and/or peritoneal cavity, and tumourous masses in the intestines. The
intestinal tumours were leiomyosarcomas, which were malignant, highly
pleomorphic, and highly anaplastic. These tumours occurred most
frequently in the duodenum and appeared to have arisen from the
musculature of the tunica propria of the mucosa. The incidence was 0
in the controls, three in females on 500 ppm (0.05%), five in males on
1000 ppm (0.1%), two in males on 2500 ppm (0.25%) and 0 on 5000 ppm
(0.5%). The histopathological changes observed in the heart and liver
with chronic administration of JOC were similar to those observed with
ß-asarone. Cardiac atrophy was observed in both test and controls but
was more severe in test animals. The severity in all four test groups
was similar. Fatty degeneration and fatty infiltration were increased
with doses of 1000 ppm (0.1%) and greater and cardiac thrombosis was
observed only with these levels. Passive hyperaemia of the liver
generally increased with dose for all four treatment levels. Hepatic
nodular hyperplasia was more severe in the treated groups but the
incidence was not dose-related. In males, the 2500 and 5000 ppm (0.25
and 0.5%) levels caused marked growth depression. With the lower doses
weight gain was normal for the first 26 weeks, then decreased. After
68 weeks, there appeared to be a slight weight loss. In the females,

growth depression was dose-related and considerable on the 1000, 2500
and 5000 ppm (0.1, 0.25 and 0.5%) levels. On the 500 ppm (0.05%)
level, weight gain was normal during the first year and slightly
depressed thereafter. Haematological values were similar in control
and test animals (Taylor et al., 1967; Taylor, 1981).

Groups of 25 male and 25 female rats were fed levels of 0, 50,
100 and 5000 ppm (0, 0.005, 0.01 and 0.5%) JOC for two years. The rats
on the 5000 ppm (0.5%) level showed the elevated and early mortality,
the heart and liver lesions observed with this level in the study
described above. One leiomyosarcoma was also observed in a male on
this level. Heart and liver changes with the 50 and 100 ppm (0.005 and
0.01%) levels were similar in severity to those observed in the
controls and consistent with geriatric changes. No leiomyosarcomas
were observed in the control, 50 or 100 ppm (0.005 and 0.01%) levels
(Taylor, 1981).

Groups of 25 male and 25 female rats were fed diets containing
EOC at levels of 0.1, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0% for two years. This study was
evaluated independently by two pathologists. Both reported the finding
of leiomyosarcomas and hepatocellular adenomas and adenocarcinomas on
the 1.0 and 2.0% dose levels. Liver changes, identified by one
pathologist as hepatocellular adenomas or adenomatoid hyperplasia and
by the other as nodular hyperplasia also occurred on the 0.1 and 0.5%
levels. Other hepatic changes observed were hyperaemia, necrosis,
hepatocellular vacuolation, and biliary duct proliferation. In
general, these changes increased in severity and incidence with dose,
with the changes at 0.1% being similar to those in the controls or
slightly increased. Heart changes, consisting of myocardial atrophy,
fibrosis, fatty degeneration and fatty infiltration, increased with
increasing dose. The myocardial atrophy and damage was considered
sufficient to account for the passive hyperaemia and congestion seen
in the liver and other organs (Taylor, 1981).

The toxicity of calamus oil has been reviewed by Opdyke, 1977.

Comments

Only limited information is available on the metabolism of
ß-asarone in the rat, and none for man. Short-term administration of
ß-asarone to rats resulted in both hepatic and cardiac damage. These
changes were much more severe following long-term administration of
ß-asarone. In addition, tumourous masses were observed in the
intestinal tract. The tumours were identified as leiomyosarcomas.
Similar effects were observed following administration of oil of
calamus, the severity of the effect being directly related to the
ß-asarone content. Tumours were also reported in the liver.

Low levels of ß-asarone are not mutagenic in the Ames test with
and without activation, but high concentrations (5000 ppm (0.5%)) have
been shown to be positive in this system following activation.

EVALUATION

No ADI allocated.

"But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best. The truly great Magician will be able to use his own blood, or possibly that of a disciple, and that without sacrificing the physical life irrevocably."

Roger's recipie:

1 cup of organic, extra virgin olive oil
30 drops of myrrh essential oil
15 drops of cinnamon essential oil
30 drops of cassia essential oil and
1/4 ounce of premium, ground Cannabis flowers.
+ prayer, intention, blessing and love.

Not sure of the steps to prepare - maseration is above.

Quote:
Roger, are the ingredients heated for a period of time and then filtered?

Yes. I heat the base of olive oil in a Pyrex measuring cup as it sits in a saucepan of boiling water. I boil the water - NOT the olive oil.

When the olive oil is very hot I add the ground Cannabis flowers and stir the mixture with a wooden chopstick. (Zero metal touches the oil.) I heat it all together a second time in the pan of water. Remove from heat and let cool for ten minutes, or so.

Then I strain the Cannabis out of the oil by pouring it through a new (washed and dried) men's handerchief into a second Pyrex measuring cup. Then I add the drops of essential oil of myrrh, cinnamon and cassia to the clear, Cannabis-infused olive oil. Finish the ceremony with loving intention, healing blessing and direct moonlight and the ancient, topical sacrament is good to go. Decant into smaller, eye-dropper bottles. Pau.

http://thc-ministry.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3074&highlight=

http://www.heavenlyessentialoils.com/id42.html

I found these sermons and it is some good reading.

I am not endorsing all they say. (They are Rapturests)

It caught my eye because it was from Tommy Spurgean a decendent of

the great preacher of old Reverend Spurgeon even knew the Holy Oil was

translated as Holy Spirit

Love L


Many atheist and other groups who deny the Deity of Jesus look for

reasons and fault in scripture to prove that Jesus was either just a man or

imaginary person. One of their major points to challenge his existence and

authority is that they say that the Old Testament does not make any

mention or reference of the Twelve Disciples. Their argument being that as

important as the role the Twelve disciples were to play that there would

certainly be some kind of mention of them in the Old Testament

Scriptures. To most theologians there is no mention of them, but when we

truly believe what the scriptures say and understand the meaning of many

things that have simply been discarded as being unimportant we will find

that they were there all along.


It is necessary to realize that the birthright, or inheritance in the Old

Testament teachings and the Gospel are linked together working hand in

hand. As we go into understanding the mystery of the 12 Disciples being

revealed in the Old Testament we must first refresh our mind with the

Promise that God made to Abraham.


Galatians 3:

7: Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the

children of Abraham.

8: And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen

through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee

shall all nations be blessed.14: That the blessing of Abraham might come

on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of

the Spirit through faith.

18: For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God

gave it to Abraham by promise.


The inheritance is Jesus Christ plus Salvation through him and the fact that

we are made jpint heirs with him. Because of this we are legally entitled to

everything he has provided through the New Covenant. The birthright is a

special possession and or priviledge that was given to the person that held

the title of primogeniture (birthright holder). Stongs Concordance said this

about the meaning of it. This was taken from the word birthright in 1st


Chronicles 5:1.

birthright: 1062 hrwkb B@kowrah (bek-o-raw');

Noun Feminine, Strong #: 1062

1. birthright, primogeniture, right of the first-born.

The promises that were given to Abraham became the birthright to be

passed down to the primogeniture in each generation. It was given by

promise to Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and then to Ephraim, Joseph's youngest

son. It is interesting to know that the Abraham's promise appeared to

become divided at the time Jacob blessed his sons. There were two major

things that were promised that pertained to Abraham's promise that

affects us as Gentiles, there are several things given to the Jewish people.

For example God had said that the Land of Israel would be theirs forever.

But when it comes to the promises made to the world it would be given to

Israel in two parts. One was that Jesus the Son of God would be born from

Abraham and become a blessing to all nations; the other was that God

would make Abraham the father of many nations.


When Jacob blessed his sons Judah was promised that out of him would

come the great king and that His scepter would never depart from Judah.

But God didn’t tell Judah that he would become the father of many nations

but passed this promise to Joseph and his two sons. The greater part of

this blessing would rest on Ephraim. Ephraim became primogeniture or

birthright holder. Jacob told Ephraim that he would become a multitude of

nations. This promise given to Ephraim was Abraham's promise in it's

entirety. The promise given to Judah was that out of him would come the

chief ruler, but Abraham's birthright was passed down to Ephraim. He was

the primogeniture, he possessed the entire birthright.


The birthright was given to Joseph (Gen. 49:26) then to Ephraim and


Mannaseh (Gen.48:13-20).

13: And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's

left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and

brought them near unto him.

14: And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's

head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head,

guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.

15: And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers

Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto

this day,

16: The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my

name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and

Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

17: And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head

of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to remove

it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.

18: And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the

firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.

19: And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also

shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger

brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of

nations.

20: And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless,

saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim

before Manasseh.


1Chron: 5:1: Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was

the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father's bed, his birthright

was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is

not to be reckoned after the birthright.

1Chron: 5:2: For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the

chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph's

Even though Manasseh was blessed, Ephraim possessed the birthright as

primogeniture because of the right hand blessing from Jacob and was

blessed over Manasseh. This was done when Jacob crossed his arms and

blessed Ephraim, who was the youngest, over Manasseh, who was the

oldest. Joseph tried to correct Jacob but Jacob said that it was done.


By all appearances to most people it is believed that God blessed Judah

above everyone else because out of him would come the Chief Ruler. This

would eventually become the reason for so much strife between the tribes

of Ephraim and Judah. After Israel was delivered from the land of Egypt

they were to go to the Promised Land. The reason they called it the

Promised Land was because it was promised to them through the birthright

that the Land of Canaan would become part of their inheritance. This

birthright was now in the hands of Ephraim.


Afterwards Israel would go into bondage in Egypt. During this time each of

the firstborn sons from Ephraim's immeditate family would become the

birthright holder. This went on for four hundred years. This birthright would

eventually be passed to Joshua the son of Nun. Joshua would then become

the leader of the tribe of Ephraim.


When the Moses delivered Israel, it was already established in Heaven that

Moses would not be the man to take the children of Israel into the

Promised Land. Why? Because he was a Levite and did not possess the

birthright that was handed down to Ephraim. Moses had the Law but was

not the primogeniture, or birthright holder. God is a very legalistic God.

And God will use legal reasons to cause things to happen. The Lord

determined that Moses would not lead the children of Israel into the

Promised Land because of his disobedience. But there was a reason

behind this that most of us do not realize. It was impossible for Moses to

take the children of Israel into the Promised Land simply because he was

not of the tribe of Ephraim. The Birthright holder must be the one to divide

the inheritance. At this time we are only looking at one part of the

inheritance which was that God had promised the Land of Canaan to the

children of Israel and they were about to receive this promise. Remember

this is only part of the promise that God gave to Israel through the

birthright given to Abraham, the rest would come at the time Jesus began

his ministry and would eventually be crucified which would provide the

New Covenant. This is the other part of t
