Subject: FW: [Thalia’s Journal] Jacob travels to his ancestral lands and finds a wife
Today’s lessons’ highlights that when a man looks for a woman he looks for a good thing, that’s in Proverbs 31. The genealogy of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Although Jacob dishonestly acquires the blessings of the Patriarch, the promise land. The Holy Spirit, which is assigned by God confirms that it can not be altered and that God hastens to perform His word. Which means that the tribe of Judah, which is from the union of Leah and Jacob, will prevail to bring the Saviour of the world, the Chosen People, the resurrected Messiah – in the land of Judah which is Arabia near the land of Midian, which the Edomites had contention for the land.
Remember, if you chose a Holy experience then the children of the promise can fulfill the Holy Scriptures. If you choose to stay in your present day land of Canaanite and watch the corruption and the confederacy against God’s children, the Israelites then Christ will judge you accordingly.
Be blessed and have a wonderful week.

Memory Scripture: Genesis 29:18-22
1Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.
3And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon the well’s mouth in his place.
7And he said, “Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed them.”
8And they said, “We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well’s mouth; then we water the sheep.”
9And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep; for she kept them.
10And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother’s brother. 11And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.
12And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father’s brother, and that he was Rebekah’s son: and she ran and told her father.
13And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister’s son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house. And he told
Laban all these things.
15And Laban said unto Jacob, “Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?”
16And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
17Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured.
18And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, “I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.”
20And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.
21And Jacob said unto Laban, “Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.”
22And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.
23And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.
24And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.
25And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, “What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?”
26And Laban said, “It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn. 27Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.”
28And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him ‘Rachel’ his daughter to wife also.
29And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid.

9And I that am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast.
Joel 2:12-14 – 12Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

Matthew 2:18 – 18In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not. (Matthew 2:18, King James Version)
18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
