A Stairway in Jacob’s Dream

雅各梦中的梯子

今天我们讲一个雅各的故事。你知道吗,他曾经是一个小骗子! 雅各曾经使用诡计欺骗了他的双胞胎哥哥以扫,他用一碗汤换取了哥哥的特殊家庭地位和祝福! 后来,在他的父亲以撒快死的时候,雅各也欺骗了他的爸爸——他趁爸爸眼花又糊涂,把自己假装成哥哥以扫。

雅各骗到了本应该是哥哥得到的特别祝福,这时候哥哥以扫非常生气! 他想杀了雅各! 于是雅各就离开家,逃到他舅舅家去躲避。他走了很远的路,又害怕又孤独。一天晚上,太阳下山了,雅各停下来休息。他找来一块石头当枕头,然后躺在地上很快睡着了。

上帝知道雅各感到害怕和孤独,并且知道雅各也为自己骗人的诡计感到内疚。于是,在雅各睡着的时候,上帝让他做了一个奇妙的梦!

雅各梦见一个梯子,从地上一直通到天堂。在梯子上,有天使上去下来! 在梯子最顶端的是上帝自己。上帝对雅各说: 我是耶和华,是你祖父亚伯拉罕,和你父亲以撒的神。有一天,你会有一个大家族,这整片土地也将属于你! 还有,我要通过你曾曾曾孙子中的某一位,祝福世界上的每一个人。现在请记住,我永远和你在一起,无论你到哪里,我都会保护你。”

第二天早晨雅各醒来了,他非常高兴! 他说: 上帝在这里,就在这个地方,而我竟然不知道! 这个地方何等神圣啊,这里是上帝的殿,是天堂的门! 雅各想要纪念上帝对他所说的话,于是拿起他用来枕头的石头,让它像一个小纪念碑一样立起来。随后他又把油浇在上面,给那地方起了一个新名字叫伯特利,意思就是神的殿

你知道雅各的曾……孙子,要成为全世界祝福的那一位是谁吗?

是耶稣!

上帝曾应许雅各,救主会从雅各的家族而出。

当我把这个梯子挂上耶西树,

我会收到这个将临期的应许:

上帝曾应许雅各祂会永远与他同在,并且救主会从雅各的家族出生。

那位救主就是耶稣!

A Stairway in Jacob’s Dream


This is a story about Jacob, who was a trickster! One of Jacob’s biggest tricks was fooling his twin brother, Esau, into trading the special family blessing for a bowl of soup! Later, when their father, Isaac, was dying, Jacob tricked him too—by pretending to be Esau!

Now that Jacob had the special family blessing, Esau was furious! He wanted to kill Jacob! So Jacob ran away from home and headed for his uncle’s house. He traveled for many miles, scared and lonely. One night, when the sun went down, he stopped to rest. He found a stone and used it as a pillow, and he lay on the ground and fell fast asleep.

God knew that Jacob felt scared and lonely—and guilty too, because of his tricks. So as Jacob
slept, God sent him a wonderful dream!

Jacob dreamed of a stairway that went from the ground all the way up to heaven. On that stairway, walking up and down, were angels! At the very top of the stairway was God himself. He said to Jacob, “I am the LORD, the God of your grandpa, Abraham, and your
father, Isaac. Someday you will have a huge family, and all this land will belong to you! And
there’s more! I’m going to bless everyone on the whole earth through one of your great- great-great . . . grandchildren. Now remember, I’m always with you, and I’ll watch over you wherever you go.”

When Jacob woke up the next morning, he was so happy! He said, “The Lord is right here, in this place, and I didn’t even know it! This place is awesome! It’s the house of God, the gate of heaven!”
Jacob wanted to remember what God had said to him. So he took his stone pillow and turned it so that it stood up like a little pillar. Then he poured oil over it and gave that place a new name: Bethel, which means “house of God.”

Do you know who Jacob’s great-great-great . . . grandson would be,
the one that would be a blessing to the whole earth? Jesus!
God promised Jacob that the Savior would be born in Jacob’s own family.

As I hang the STAIRWAY on the JESSE TREE, Here is an Advent promise for me:

God promised Jacob that he would always be with him
and that the Savior would be born from his family.
That Savior is Jesus!
