    The ladder in verse 12 is a depiction of Jesus as related to Nathanael by Jesus in John 1:51. He is the one and only mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5). We can come boldly to the throne of grace by Jesus Christ (Hebrews 4:14-16).

    In John 3:13 Jesus tells Nicodemus "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven."

    Romans 10:6-9 states:

    "But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

    Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

    But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

    Paul told of a certain experience in 2 Corinthians 12 then humbly chose to glory in his infirmities rather than exalt himself, being made strong in weakness.

    Ephesians 2:4-7 says:

    "But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

    Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

    And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

    That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus."

    From these I gather that by faith in Jesus Christ we are as good as being seated in heaven in Christ, but as Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:6-7, "Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

    (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)".

    Ask this group where they have authority to do this in the Bible.

    Sounds more like familiar spirits and witchcraft which is forbidden.

    You could ask them to renounce Satan.

    Ask if Jesus Christ is God in the flesh and do they serve him as Lord.

    an answer would be interesting

    Your friends are crazy.

    1 John 4:1-3 talks about how you know if a spirit is from God or not. A very easy, simple test. Aren't gems of wisdom like this great?
  • Rose browne zeze on Genesis 28
    Esau and Jacob were twins and Esau came out first with Jacob holding his heels, so Jacob was second son.
  • Dessie C Jones on Genesis 28:8
    Where in the KJV is the scripture which says "Obey the laws of the land for these are the laws of God"? I'm not referring to Romans 13:1-7 or 1 Peter 2:13-17. What I'm looking for is in the Old Testament. Can anyone please help me? Thanks
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 28:8
    I've done a thorough search for what you seek & have come up empty-handed. However, the closest verses that subscribe to your request, may be found in Ezra 7:25,26. You can read it, but for more clarity I would paraphrase it thus: "Ezra, using your God-given wisdom, set magistrates & judges who know the laws of thy God, to judge all people beyond the river & teach them that don't know the laws. And whoever does not obey the laws of God & the king, let judgement be executed speedily.....". So the implication is that both the laws of God & the laws of the land are to be obeyed. I hope this helps.

    Integrity of the daughters of Canaan; what was the problem(s) with the daughters of the Canaanites?

    Verse 1- Isaac knew that the choice of a marriage mate was important and he conveyed this point to his son.
  • Gonzalo on Genesis 28
    Jacob didn't confess his name the first time, so he received a blessing intended for someone else, that blessing never came he spend much of his life striving and running away, until one night face to face with God he wrestle and asked for his blessing, then God ask him what is you name? but this time he did not lie he said I am Jacob then God truly bless him and changed his name to Israel.
  • A disciple on Genesis 28
    Frankie; "I truly can't understand why Jacob is being Blessed by God after deceiving Isaac the way that he did..." "There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes but is not washed from their filthiness." While many use everything instead of Christ to establish their own righteousness, God is about to humble them and take everything away from them wherein they trust, who obey not the truth.
  • Bruce on Genesis 28
    Frankie: Jacob is blessed because he is 2nd Born. God doesn't accept first born. A Picture of Salvation, ye must be born again. Has The Holy Spirit tugged on Your Heart: John 6:44. Answer His call while He is near. Ask Forgiveness. You will be Washed by The Blood of The Lamb: Revelation 1:5. Baptized with The Holy Ghost:Mark 1:8. / If any man be in Christ --- he--- becomes New 2Corinthians 5:17
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Genesis 28
    Jacob was first born.
  • A disciple on Genesis 28
    Frankie (cont.); God rules over the matters and times of this world and He directs the good and the evil according to His own will, to bring men to repentance and the knowledge of the truth. We were not made and born into the world to live for self without God. This world as it is right now is not God's final plan for man; but He waits for the completion of the times to finish our salvation.
  • H.D. on Genesis 28
    “It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭9:12-13‬ ‭
    “Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it
  • A disciple on Genesis 28
    Frankie; Many find fault with God choosing one before another to bless; because their view of right and wrong does not include faith and humility and truth in the inward parts towards God. Esau had no heart for the God or the faith of his fathers, but chose instead to be a man of pride among the heathen; and everything he did was with indifference to God and His holy promises. So he was rejected.
  • Frankie on Genesis 28
    I truly can't understand why Jacob is being Blessed by God after deceiving Isaac the way that he did... He literally stole Esau's Blessing! Why does he (Jacob) continue to be Blessed? Even though it was Rebekah's idea to begin with, Jacob knew it was wrong and went along with it anyway. Yet God Blesses Jacob. I just can't wrap my head around that. Am I missing something?
  • JD Moore on Genesis 28
    Although this promise was directed to one situation or only one nation, it personally gives me hope. I feel the love and strength within the text from God to us all. Thanx from Ponchatoula, LA JD
  • Irene123 on Genesis 28
    Jacob had a dream, sent to him by God. When he awoke he knew God had sent him the dream so he set up his 'pillow' as an altar and anointed it with oil. And thru the yrs. other Israelites passing that way used the altar for prayer to bless their journey or their camp there, or for healing or for whatever.

    Don't quite understand the verse 18
  • Vallerie on Genesis 28
    Genesis 28 is the perfect medicine for anxiety and worry. Ive seen and been through much but he's always been there. Even when Ive turned away...he's always been there talking to me and protecting me. How much so can I truly rest for the rest of my life knowing he's been with me all this time? I rest fully in him..
  • Veronica on Genesis 28
    GOD is our life to my family.We started nothing but now all my our children are all professionals and not a regular employee but with position.God did not bless us to be blessed but He blessed us exceedingly more than enough.OUR GOD IS A GOD OF MORE THAN ENOUGH.Time given to him will not come back empty.
  • Richie on Genesis 28
    I see that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother,but Esau did not,instead, making his parents more griefed of mind by taking ungodly women to wife,which ultimately cost Esau and his decendants a lot of trouble and ungodliness which eventually lead to the demise of the Edomites. I believe Isaac instructed Esau as well as Jacob the things of God,but Jacob had ears to hear the things of God.

    May I use this graphic for my Sunday School newsletter?
  • Anozie Chisom on Genesis 28
    'Behold i am with thee' this verse signifies God's love for His children and continual guidance to all who will look up to him for grace and strength to run this race.
