"DON'T GET CAUGHT IN THE TRICK'S BAG!" for another 7yrs in recieving your promise of TRUE LOVE.Genesis 29:16-2And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured. And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter. And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her. And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her. And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?
in The Bible
¶ And while he yet spoke with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep: for she kept them.
And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother's brothe
And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.
And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was Rebekah's son: and she ran and told her father.
And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.
And Laban said to him, Surely you are my bone and my flesh. And he abode with him the space of a month
¶ And Laban said unto Jacob, Because you are my brother, should you therefore serve me for nothing? tell me, what shall your wages be?
And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favored.

HOW EASY it is to rationalize bad behavior by claiming it’s for a good cause! And how often have we seen sin in the Church covered up because it would supposedly hamper its ability to do good works in God’s name. This week, we see a classic example as Rebekah conspires with Jacob to deceive Isaac and confirm the blessing that God had promised to Jacob before his birth.
We also look at Esau, who only seemed to value his birthright when he realized it was attached to great wealth; Laban’s deception of the deceiver, Jacob; the pain and loneliness of Leah; and Jacob’s life-changing experience at Bethel.
“Jacob’s Ladder”, his dream of angels ascending and descending to and from heaven, has inspired many unbiblical pursuits. For example, many Dominionist teachers in the New Apostolic Reformation, a hypercharismatic form of Protestant Christianity, teach that we are to open portals through specific prayers and spiritual disciplines. While there may be specific portals to other dimensions, nowhere in scripture are we told that we should access or open them. In fact, God’s commands against consulting mediums or necromancers seem to be a pretty clear warning not to do so!
Let us be clear: Jesus made it clear that he is the only portal to heaven through which the faithful should pass, especially in John 1:51.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” (ESV)
We also discuss the stone Jacob set up at Bethel, which is (allegedly) the Stone of Scone, or the Stone of Destiny, a granite block on which the kings and queens of Scotland and England have been crowned since the early 5th century.

Today's passage of Scripture is Genesis 31:9-11 which reads: "And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, the Lord which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee: I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands. Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children."
Today's quote about the Bible is from Bruce Barton. He said: "The Bible rose to the place it now occupies because it deserved to rise to that place, and not because God sent anybody with a box of tricks to prove its divine authority."
Our topic for today is titled "Jacob and his Tribes" (Part 4) from the book, "The Promise and the Blessing" by Dr. Michael A. Harbin.
"Even after twenty years, Jacob feared returning to meet his brother. He divided his property to make it less of a target and sent bribes on ahead to placate Esau, only to find that his brother had mellowed and become prosperous in his own right. En route, Jacob wrestled with God and was given the new name Israel, 'One who strives with God.' It would seem that it was only after this event that Jacob really became a man of faith, albeit a faith that wavered (perhaps up to the point when he learned that Joseph was alive in Egypt)."
Today's passage of Scripture is Genesis 28:10-12 which reads: "And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it."
Today's quote about the Bible is from Robert Murray McCheyn. He said: "When you are reading a book in a dark room, and come to a difficult part, you take it to a window to get more light. So take your Bibles to Christ."
Our topic for today is titled "Jacob and his Tribes" (Part 3) from the book, "The Promise and the Blessing" by Dr. Michael A. Harbin.
"Using the undesirable character of Esau's wives (who were both Hittites) as an excuse, Rebekah persuaded her husband to send Jacob to Haran to get a wife from among their relatives. Thus, Jacob fled the wrath of Esau, but he really left home with nothing and did not know when he would return. While en route, Jacob had an interesting encounter with God at Bethel. There he received from God the promise that Abraham and Isaac had also been given—the land, many descendants, and a future worldwide blessing. His response to this revelation suggests that his spiritual state was very open to question. After the vision, he promised that if God were to be with him during the journey, and bring him back safely, then he would make Him his God."
Today's passage of Scripture is Genesis 25:20-21 which reads: "And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian. And Isaac intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived."
Allow me to share with you some further commentary on this passage from the Reformation Study Bible by Dr. R.C. Sproul:
The next generation after Abraham also had to learn that the seed of promise is a gift of God’s grace, and sovereignly chosen by Him. Both Isaac’s wife and offspring were secured through prayer.
Today's quote about the Bible is from C. S. Lewis. He said: "We must sometimes get away from the Authorized Version [of the Bible], if for no other reason, simply because it is so beautiful and so solemn. Beauty exalts, but beauty also lulls. Early associations endear, but they also confuse. Through that beautiful solemnity, the transporting or horrifying realities of which the Book tells may come to us blunted and disarmed, and we may only sigh with tranquil veneration when we ought to be burning with shame, or struck dumb with terror, or carried out of ourselves by ravishing hopes and adorations."
Our topic for today is titled "Isaac" (Part 2) from the book, "The Promise and the Blessing" by Dr. Michael A. Harbin.
As Yogi Berra is supposed to have remarked, “it was deja vu all over again.” Or, we could say, like father, like son. In his dealings with Abimelech, the Philistine king, Isaac attempted the same deception that Abraham had used twice with Sarah. The results were similar...
