John 5:4 “For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.”
When the angel troubles the water, whosoever gets in first got healed of whatever disease he has. The healing will not even go to the second but the first person only.
There is an authority of the first, and when you don’t know it you’ll always play second fiddle. God knows that anything labeled first is special and powerful but the devil knows it too. That is why all through scriptures, we see the devil fighting the first and making sure they fail.
You’ll discover that the first man failed, so God had to send the second Adam in person of Jesus Christ. Cain failed and even went ahead to kill the successful second by name Abel. Esau the first born failed, Jacob took over. Reuben also failed and several other people in scriptures.
In our focal scriptures, the Greek word used for “first” is translated to mean: foremost (in time, place, order or importance), before, beginning, best, head, chief (est), most significant, above and ahead.
The devil knows there is an anointing on the first that makes him superior to all others, so he tries as much as possible to stop him. When you check most of the promises of God to the believer, he makes him first.
Deuteronomy 28:13 “And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:”
Psalms 133:2 “It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;”
Beloved, the plan of God is to make sure you’re superior and most significant everywhere you go. God knows that nothing will happen if you and I as believers don’t take our place in life and destiny. The grace flows from the head down to other parts.
We are by design made head and number one. We are not candidates for the back. We are meant to be above only and never beneath.
If there is a prayer you must pray daily, it is to receive the anointing to be first always. May you be head indeed in Jesus name.
