Genesis 28:10-15

Jacob’s Portal into the Heavens

Transcript

Genesis 28:10-15 then Jacob departed from Beersheba and went toward Haran he came to a certain place and spent the night there because the sun had set and he took one of the stones of the place and put it under his head and lay down in that place he had a dream and behold a ladder was set on the earth with it’s top reaching the heaven and behold the angels of God were ascending and descending on it and behold the LORD stood above it and said I am Yahweh the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac the land in which you lie I will give it to you and to your descendants and 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 and in you and in your descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed behold I am with you and will keep you wherever you go and will bring you back to this land and I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised Shabbat Shalom WOW what an awesome promise that God gave to Jacob do you remember what was going on in Jacob’s life at the time He has just connived with his mother to lie and deceive his father Isaac and had stolen the blessing of the first born from his brother Esau and then Esau vowed to kill him and Jacob had to flee he was running toward the land of Haran which was the land Abraham had come from and he was turned aside here to spend the night and it turns out to be a very unique experience he ends up in a place known as Bet-El or Bethel in English which means the House of God that’s what Jacob named the place and we see angels coming and going descending and or ascending and descending up and down a ladder as it were this is a supernatural place where Jacob experienced the presence of Yahweh the presence of God in a very very powerful way the original name of the city was Luz L-u-z in english and Luz comes from the verb that means to be turned aside or twisted or perverted and it’s also a noun which means the almond tree so it’s probably a place where there were a lot of almonds growing but it was a place of perversion and twisting and lying and not good things so God brought Jacob to this place that was called Luz and transformed Jacob’s life at that place and called the place Bet-El or Bethel the house of God and so what we see here God wants to make a transformation in every one of our lives every one of us have probably done things that we’re not proud of things where we’ve sinned or we’ve lied or we’ve done things that are not right not good and here Jacob is having to flee from his life but he comes to the place the house of God Bethel Bet-El and so I believe that the reason we’re reading this today every one of us God intends to have transformation experiences like that from time to time where we come in to the presence of God where angels are actually ascending descending the manifest presence of God is it’s in the house of God and what happens transformation where we move from Luz which is that which is twisted, perverted from Jacob’s past life of lying, deception, cheating stealing from his brother to moving toward living in the house of God so today is your day to be transformed from Luz the twisted place the place of the past where there might have been lying there might have been things that were wrong and to move into the future Bet-El the house of God and I believe that’s what God wants to do for you today is there an area of Luz in your life and area where there’s been something not good something wrong perhaps an addictive habit perhaps something that wasn’t right in your life today is your day of transformation to move to Bethel that place where angels ascend and descend where you’re in the intimate presence of Yahweh God your Father and He wants you to know today He loves you Yeshua died to forgive you for all of the past so I declare over you today you will not translate the past into the future you are moving today from Luz into Bet-El I’d like to just pray that Father I pray today for my brother for my sister watching today I pray that you would be transformed from Luz to Bet-El even as Jacob was that this would be a place that is not the place of being twisted and perverted and lying and things that are not good but you would be transformed into Bet-El living in the house of God in the immediate intimate presence of God I pray that this day on this Shabbat day you would experience the intimate presence of God your Father in your life in the mighty name of Yeshua I pray Amen
