Veronica Mary Rolf

In this highly dramatic episode of Life, Love, & Light podcasts, we encounter the story of a most unlikely biblical mystic:  Jacob, the son of Isaac. This crafty, wily man deceived his twin brother Esau not once but twice, stealing both his birthright and his father's blessing. Nevertheless Jacob became the recipient of divine revelations in extraordinary dreams. We examine the distasteful aspects of the saga as well as its ancient roots and intentional humor. We delve into Jacob's dreams and their sublime meaning. We question why it is that God grants mystical revelations to sinners. And we witness the transformation of a deceitful man into a biblical mystic through his dream experiences. We also examine the nature of our own dreams and the revelations we have received through them. The story of Jacob's deceits and dreams is a powerful example for all of us of God's unconditional love, protection, and guidance -- even when we go astray. Please share this timeless story with someone you know who may be fleeing divine help, or even "doing battle" with God's messenger right now. It could be a  life-changer. Blessings to all!
