And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. Genesis 28:17
I am quite sure you will be wondering what kind of topic we are discussing. Well, I feel it impressed upon the table of my heart. In other words, I have a message for you. Fortunately, it came with a passage. I pray it will bless you richly.
In this piece and the next, we shall be looking at two important secrets in the life of Jacob. There are a number of secrets in his life. We will be looking at just two, one of which is the gate of heaven. So, what exactly does the gate of heaven means? And how does it relate to individual person?
When you take a look at the verses before our main scripture, you will find out that he wasn’t prepared for the vision. Its most likely that he was tired having been in a journey all day. But then he did something that really surprised me, he took a stone for a pillow. I have tried to imagine if that could really give him comfort. Unknown to him, he was setting himself up for an encounter.
So the vision broke, and he saw a ladder that reached into heaven from the earth. That actually calls for attention. It showed the significance of what the gate of heaven consist. It shows that its a link between the earth and heaven. Interestingly, it was an active gate because he saw angels ascending and descending. That shows how active this gate of heaven was.
How great will it be if we find the gate of heaven where we are sure that when we take matters there it will reach into heaven. And we are sure that we can always get feedback on our matters. This is because he noted that angels were ascending and descending. That means they were reaching out to God and bringing feedback to the earth. I don’t know how much you want to interact with God but I for long desired to get to the gate of heaven.
There’s so much that can be done at the gate of heaven. Its place of interaction with God, a place where angels can minister to you. Can you pray and ask God to make discover the gate of heaven. Jacob got there unknowingly in the journey of his life. It was by grace that it happened like that for Jacob. Can you ask for that grace.
