When talking about the dream Jacob had as recorded in Genesis 28:10-27, one person replied that as a kid they always thought,
That is what happens when you use a rock for a pillow!” (Gen. 28:11)
- It wasn’t the stone that brought on this dream.
- It wasn’t the fatigue of traveling so far.
- It wan’t fear from being chased by a brother (Gen. 27:41)
It was God;
- Allowing Jacob to see that there is a connection between heaven and earth.
- It was a way to show that God seeks us out for a relationship with Him
- It was a revelation of a highway of angels descending and ascending.
This dream was a mode God was using to transport information to this man Jacob. It was a ‘mode of transportation!’
In this short post i don’t want to focus on; the nap/ much needed sleep, the stone, the ladder, highway, stairway, but on the dream.
Since Adam and Eve God has made a connection, a way of communication, a relationship that is to be built, cherished and developed.
What mode of transportation does God use to speak to you? A dream? A Walk? A Climb? A Friend? A Church meeting? An object lesson? Pain? Sorrow? Fear? Solitude? Crowds?
I am listening to His word and feeling His nudge to my heart.
Are you? please leave a reply.

It the video below i noted this comment, “A Jacob’s Ladder is the type of high voltage “climbing arc” display seen in many old (and usually bad) Sci-Fi movies. Jacob’s Ladder come in all shapes, styles, and sizes. Nature has it’s own version.”
For those who know God and have developed or are developing a personal relationship with his through Christ we see things differently than the world does.
