Part 4 is up in the “Order for Advancement” Series. Reuben means ‘behold, a son’. Though he transgressed against his father by sleeping with Bilhah, Jacob’s concubine, he was not punished to death or banishment. He did lose his firstborn birthright due to his transgression. Adam, who can also be viewed as a firstborn, lost his birthright which was the authority over all the earth. Another firstborn regained that birthright, Jesus Christ. As we ‘look at, perceive, or behold The Son’, we have this birthright also.
