I don’t know that I’ll stay on this series for next Sunday, of course, with everything else that’s going on. But today’s the first of a series of messages that I’m going to share with you out of the book of Genesis, everything to do with Jacob. So I’m going to be talking about Jacob in a number of ways. So we’re about to go online in just a moment. I’ll know as soon as I see some numbers clicking up there. And I don’t. . . Is the clock running? It’s not moving, so I don’t know if you’re on or not.

I think that she and Isaac had been together for 20 years, and she was barren. Then he asked the Lord for children, and the Lord answers, and then she’s upset with how it’s unfolding. And I guess we should say rightfully so, because there was a war, a civil war going on inside of her womb. So she’s asking the Lord, is this the real plan? Like, why am I experiencing this? So she inquires of the Lord, and we don’t know exactly what process that took. Jewish rabbis have their take on it, and I prefer not to run down that rabbit path, because we have no way for sure of knowing. But we do know that the Lord answered her in a way that she clearly understood.
