Jesse Tree - December 4, 2020 - Day 6

Friday, December 4

“Then he had a dream: a stairway (sometimes translated as a ladder) rested on the ground, with its top

reaching to the heavens; and God’s messengers were going up and down on it. And there was the Lord

standing beside him and saying, ‘I, the Lord, am the God of your forefather Abraham and the God of

Isaac; the land on which you are lying I will give to you and your descendants. These shall be as plentiful

as the dust of the earth, and through them you shall spread out east and west, north and south. In you

and your descendants all the nations of the earth shall find blessing. Know that I am with you; I will

protect you wherever you go, and bring you back to this land. I will never leave you until I have

done what I promised you.” Genesis 28: 12-15

After his dream, Jacob awoke and exclaimed, “Truly, the Lord is in this spot,

although I did not know it!” The miraculous ladder in his dream and the symbol

for today reunited the earth to the divine. You can read the dramatic story of

Jacob’s life and faith in Genesis 27:41-28:22.
