Most of us have dreams, and sometimes nightmares, and it feels like we enter unknown worlds. Jacob had a dream that revealed a vast spiritual world that was beyond anything he had imagined. He saw a ladder that reached between heaven and earth and saw the angels traversing back and forth on it.
12 He 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. 13 There above it stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. 14 Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.15 I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
16 When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” 17 He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.”
We can see how it impressed him, as he built a memorial in that place.
Carol, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
Christmas is a time when heaven and earth meet. The more we reflect on Jesus, the wider the door into that world opens for us. We have only to use our faith to pray for more vision, more insight, and understanding of heavenly things. God has shown how much he desires to it give to us.
Angels are heavenly beings that are around us, sometimes seen, but most often not. They were very active during the advent of Jesus Christ.
Make reminders of angels for decorations.
Prayer for Revelation
Our Heavenly Father,
Give us clear vision. May we see Christ, understand the things of the Spirit, and know that you are for us, and will not leave us.
We are thankful today that we can see your love in the Gospel of Jesus. We thank you for heavenly Angels that travel between earth and heaven doing your will. We are grateful for the open door of your Son. In His Name we pray, Amen.
