Satan stole Adam and Eve’s birthright of being children of God but Yeshua gives it back to mankind thru His own sacrifice at the cross.
Genesis 3 (KJV)
3 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Cain wanted to steal Abel’s birthright and killed him.
GENESIS 4:8-9 (KJV)
8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
9 And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
Ishmael taunted Isaac and wanted to steal his birthright. His mother Hagar was an Egyptian giving birth to the middle east countries.
Genesis 21:8-10 (KJV)
8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.
9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.
10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.
Joseph’s brother’s wanted to steal his birthright by selling him off to Midianite merchant travelers.
Genesis 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
Genesis 37:22-24 (KJV)
22 And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.
23 And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;
24 And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.
Genesis 37:28 (KJV)
Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.
Esau despised his birthright and gave it up for a bowl of red lentil stew.
Genesis 25:30 (KJV) And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.
Genesis 25:32 (KJV) And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
Genesis 25:34 (KJV) Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.
This history has continued as we see Palestinian and Muslim nations declaring their birthright to a nation that God gave Israel.
The spirit of Cain lives on to kill those who have given their hearts and first fruits to our God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Erdogan: Recognition of Jerusalem a 'bomb' in the Middle East
Turkish President says Muslims will never accept U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, calls for action against it.
Elad Benari, Canada, 15/12/17 22:19
Muslims will never accept the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared on Friday, according to AFP.
He referred to President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as a "bomb" thrown at the entire Middle East, and repeated past accusations that Israel is a “terror state”.
"Trying to make Jerusalem capital of a terror state is not a situation that can be accepted by Muslims," declared Erdogan, who spoke at the opening of a new metro line in Istanbul.
The U.S. step is a "new bomb thrown into the lap of the Middle East," the Turkish leader charged.
Erdogan urged Muslims to take stronger action or risk the consequences.
"The Jerusalem decision is a harbinger of new operations targeting the Islamic world," he warned, adding, "If Muslims fail to show the necessary reaction on this issue within the law, believe me there will be more to come."
Since Trump made his announcement on Jerusalem, Erdogan has stepped up his anti-Israel rhetoric.
He had previously warned the United States not to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, or to move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, saying that any change to the status quo vis-à-vis Jerusalem would constitute a “red line” for Muslims.
He also threatened that his country would sever ties with Israel if Trump went through with the move.
Israel and Turkey signed a comprehensive reconciliation deal last year, ending a six-year diplomatic standoff following a violent encounter between Israeli soldiers and Islamist radicals on a ship attempting to break through the security blockade on Gaza.
However, Erdogan has consistently attacked Israel, even after the reconciliation deal was signed.
In May, Erdogan spoke out angrily over legal plans in Israel to prevent the use of loudspeakers on minarets to summon Muslims for nightly prayers.
In July, the Turkish leader accused Israel of harming itself and the region because of its security measures at the Temple Mount.
This past week, Erdogan chaired a summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) where leaders declared eastern Jerusalem to be the capital of a Palestinian state.
They also urged the world to follow suit and recognize eastern Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state, but did not agree any on concrete measures or sanctions.
