Go up to Bethel

At Bethel, God not only confirmed Jacob’s name change to Israel, He reiterated and connected the covenantal blessing to all of Jacob-Israel’s descendants—“the children of Israel.”

FOUNDATION (Genesis 27:1-4)

May God Almighty bless you, and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may be an assembly of peoples; and give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and your descendants with you, that you may inherit the land in which you are a stranger, which God gave to Abraham.
