Genesis Bible Study

Genesis 28 Bible Study

Jacob’s ladder

“When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.  There above it stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying.  Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.  I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Genesis 28:11-15. 

Did you count 8 promises???  I did.

In verse 11, the Lord waited for Jacob to get uncomfortable and isolated before He spoke to him, then he revealed to Jacob a connection between Heaven and Earth and finally made him a promise.  Sound familiar?  

Sounds a little like my own salvation story.  Share your salvation story on our Facebook Page.
