Scriptures: Genesis 28:10-22, Luke 16:26, 19:9, John 1:47-51, 1 Timothy 2:5, Hebrews 1:13-14, Psalm 138:8, Romans 10:17

Jacob saw a ladder that was no ordinary ladder. It was so long it reached into heaven and it was so strong it could hold the weight of tens of thousands of angels. When Jacob got a picture of this ladder that links heaven and earth and understood the meaning, it became the greatest discovery of his life and it changed him forever and the change can be for you too. In this message, Dr. Merritt details the meaning behind Jacob's unique and powerful vision in Genesis 28.

"Jacob certainly had more sense when he was asleep than when he was awake. He learned the ladder was a link between heaven and earth, and that the ladder was a lesson in how we get from earth to heaven. The purpose of a ladder is to climb to a place that could not otherwise be reached. If we are going to heaven we need help from above. We need a ladder that can get us from earth to heaven because there is a great gulf between God and us." --Dr. Merritt
