Genesis 28 | Jacob & The Stairway to Heaven
October 23, 2022
After stealing The Blessing & Birthright from his brother Esau, Jacob is forced to flee from his family to the land of Haran. On his way, he stops in a “certain place,” and with a stone for his pillow, he falls asleep and has a dream. He dreams of a wide stairway up to the heavens with angels of the Lord ascending and descending. And then the Lord God speaks to Jacob, calling him, and reaffirming the covenant with Abraham will be fulfilled in him–Jacob, the liar and deceiver, the one who is all alone and at the end of his rope. Jacob knew of the God of his fathers, but he needed to encounter him–so do we.
