Genesis 28 - JESUS Is The True Jacob’s Ladder

Genesis 28:10-12

Jacob’s Dream at Bethel

10Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. 

11When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.

12He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to Heaven, and the angels of GOD were ascending and descending on it. 

JESUS Is The True Jacob’s Ladder

John 1:47-51

JESUS Saw Nathanael coming toward HIM and Said of him, 
“Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!” 
Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” 
JESUS Answered him, 
“Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I Saw you.” 
Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are The SON of GOD! YOU Are The KING of Israel!” 
JESUS Answered him, 
“Because I Said to you, ‘I Saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” And HE Said to him, “Truly, truly, I Say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of GOD ascending and descending on The SON of Man.” 

In the story of Bethel, Jacob saw a ladder coming from Heaven(Genesis 28). The incident 'Tower of Babel(Genesis 11)' reveals our inability to reach GOD. Bethel reveals that GOD Is reaching down to us. JESUS Promises here that HE Is The Ladder.  HE Is The ONE that Bridges the gap between GOD and Men.  No one sees GOD apart from the way that GOD Has Made.  
You will never reach GOD. You will never please GOD. You will never even see GOD apart from going through JESUS CHRIST. JESUS Has Come to Rescue us and Restore us to a right relationship with GOD.  The message of Heaven is simply this… Emmanuel GOD with us!
