Genesis 28, Isaac called for Jacob and blessed him and said to him, “Don’t marry one of these Canaanite girls. Instead, go to the house of your grandfather Bethuel, and marry one of your cousins your Uncle* Laban’s daughters. May God pass on to you and to your descendants the mighty blessings promised to Abraham. May you own this land where we now are foreigners, for God has given it to Abraham.” So Isaac sent Jacob away, and he went to visit his Uncle Laban, his mother’s brother. That night, he stopped to camp at sundown and found a rock to lay down to sleep, and dreamed he saw angels of God ascending and descending a stepladder from heaven to earth. God stood at the top of the stairs and said. “I am Jehovah, the God of Abraham, and of your father, Isaac and I will give you this land. Your many descendants will cover this land and all the nations of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. I am with you, and will protect you wherever you go, and will bring you back safely to this land. I will be with you until I have finished giving you all I am promised.” Then Jacob woke up. “God lives here! and I’ve stumbled into this awesome entrance to heaven!” Jacob woke up early and set made a memorial pillar, and poured olive oil over it. He named the place Bethel (“House of God”). Jacob vowed: “If God will help and protect me on this journey, Jehovah will be my God! And this memorial pillar shall become a place for worship; and I will give you back a tenth of everything you give me!” FRIENDS, GOD IS THE GOD OF ALL GENERATIONS, FATHERS, SONS AND GRANDSONS. CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING OF THE LORD. Psalm 127:3-5, Children are a gift from God; they are his reward. Children born to a young man are like sharp arrows to defend him. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. That man shall have the help he needs when arguing with his enemies
