13 And behold, the Lord stood above it and said: “I am the Lord God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. 14 Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. 15 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”
16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” 17 And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”
There are times during the journey to our purpose, God will encourage us with a dream to show us that he is with us in the very things that we are going for. God gave Jacob a dream to not only show him the Kingdom of God in heaven, and His promises, but also to awaken Jacob to the reality that the Kingdom of God is on the earth and wherever he lays his head. The Kingdom of God has been in man all along but he has not been really aware of it. Man is about to wake to the dream that God has had for him since the beginning of the ages. That man would dwell in heaven while on the earth. Heaven and Earth are one. There is no separation. Man has been separated from that awareness. Time to wake up, for God has been here on the earth the whole time and man has been asleep to that awesome reality.
