Jacob meets God at Bethel
💫(Gen 28:10-12) Jacob’s* dream of a ladder.
♦️In this desolate wilderness, Jacob had a significant dream as he used a stone for a pillow (which would seem to cause strange dreams ).
♦️Jacob at this moment had strange feelings
▪️Jacob had 😳fear, loneliness, isolation, and anticipation.
🔹A ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it: In Jacob’s dream, there is now access to heaven. Jacob now knew God was closer than ever and there was real access and interaction between heaven and earth.
🎈Jesus made it clear in John 1:51 that He is the access to heaven . He is the means by which heaven comes down to us and by which we can go to heaven. He is the “ladder” And He said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.” (John 1:51)
🎈Jesus is the way to heaven . He does not show us a way, He is the way. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6).
