How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
What a revelation it is to know that, wherever I go, there is a ladder set up on the earth, its top reaching to heaven, on which the angels of God ascend and descend. To me, this is a picture of Life in the Spirit: our connection through Christ to Christ at Your right hand. Thus do we come with our every prayer and our every need. Thus are we with You wherever we go, always in this place, no matter where we are!
Thus do we arise early in the morning, knowing that communications between You and man have been opened. There is no break now; the curtain has been rent. Through this story about Jacob, we can hear You saying, "Hereafter you shall see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the sons of man."
Christ is the ladder! By Your Holy Spirit, He has broken through the barrier! He has led us into the thing that connects the two, and it is He, Jesus the Christ! He is the thing!
