Jacob had the proper birth, but at first he did not have the birthright. Eventually, he gained the birthright, but he did not enjoy the birthright until he had more growth of life, until he was transformed from a supplanter, a heel holder, into a prince of God [Genesis 32:28; 35:10]. This transformation comes from the growth in life….When he was young, he was a true supplanter, a robber. He robbed his brother, and he robbed his uncle Laban. However, when he went down to Egypt, the supplanting hand of Jacob became the blessing hand of Israel. Instead of supplanting, he blessed. He blessed even Pharaoh, the highest person on the earth…. He was a truly matured man before God, so he enjoyed the birthright and the full sonship. (The Vision, Practice, and Building Up of the Church as the Body of Christ, ch. 4, by Witness Lee)
