Twice Blessed – 028

Bait and Switch

    Jacob served seven years for Rachel. They seemed to him but a few days, for the love he had for her. Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my woman, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in to her.” Laban ..took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him. He went in to her. ..In the morning, behold, it was Leah. 
    Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? Didn’t I serve with you for Rachel? Why then have you deceived me?” Laban said, “It is not done so in our place, to give the younger before the firstborn. Fulfill the week of this one, and we will give you the other also for the service which you will serve with me yet seven other years.”
    Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week. He gave him Rachel his daughter as his woman. He went in also to Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.   Bereshit/Genesis 29:20-30

Jacob’s Ladder – 027

Jacobs LadderJacob ..dreamed.

Behold, a stairway set upon the Land, and its top reached to heaven.

Behold, the angels of Elohim ascending and descending on it.

Behold, YHWH stood above it, and said, “I am YHWH, the Elohim of Abraham your father, and the Elohim of Isaac. The Land whereon you lie, to you will I give it, and to your  seed.

Your seed will be as the dust of the earth, and you will spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south. In you and in your seed will all the families of the earth be blessed.

Behold, I am with you, and will keep you, wherever you go, and will bring you again into this Land. For I will not leave you, until I have done that which I have spoken of to you.” Genesis 28:10-15
