Today on segment length with JD Greer and Jacob does well, a lot of people would be disappointed in life.

Do they search for their answer, their life's problems in finding that one true romantic love someone they think will fulfill them.

Someone who will give the meeting someone who will make their life worth living.

I'm your host Molly, but that's movies often make it seem like romance is the answer to all of your problems guy kisses girl and they lived happily ever after, but we all know that real life doesn't work that way, no matter how perfect your relationship might be. It's not a guarantee of a happy life today. Pastor Jenny explains the key to true, lasting joy, regardless of your relationship status as part of our series called the whole story and he titled this message the search for one true love. The first make sure you stick around until the end of the program today because we are going to ask Pastor Janie a question about prayer and specifically unanswered prayer the question. I'm sure that we all have. You don't want to miss that. But for now let's jump into today's you are opening to Genesis 29 working on ways of the entire Bible doing that, I'm trying to focus on those sections of Scripture that will give you a sense of the whole story.

So we come now to a story that is as profound as it is odd. It has literally everything in it. There is betrayal there is such, there is scandal.

There are things that just look in the same in many ways it feels like a modern story because it shows you the crazy things that will do for love knows somebody that just did something that you thought was absolutely insane in the name of love like move across country with no commitment from the other person at all that people to quit their job probably would've alienated their friends and their family will get a tattoo at the wrong time. I heard one poor guy who's also in love with this girl that shortly after they started dating her brother or who he thought was her brother went into the hospital and needed a kidney transplant.

So to impress her. He donated his kidney only for it to come out after the operation was over that this guy was actually not her brother but her ex-boyfriend that she was still in love with. Shortly after the operation she broke up with the generous kidney donor so that she could marry her fake brother just insane. The things I write well believe it or not, all those things would be small potatoes compared to what happens in the story in Genesis 29. I will explain to you that in a much deeper sense the story shows us, regardless of what romantic situation.

Your inner what you want for the future, or even what stage of life.

This story shows us the search that each of us is on in life going on in the context Abraham is the guy who was the patriarch of the entire Jewish nation, Abraham is a God who promises a given. And so the book of Genesis, follows his family Abraham nonmember sterile and for eligible man. He is a miracle baby named Isaac. Isaac llamas and have two sons one is named Jacob.

The others can be named Esau, this is kind of the family tree that brings you into Genesis 29 now Jacob and Esau were twins, but they could not have been more different. Esau was what many people would call a man's man. He ate lots of red meat you like the hot we assume that he really likes sports. He probably drove in F2 50.

We also know that he was really hairy. We know that because his name literally means things Esau means red in the hearing. Interesting note to me is that they gave him this name at birth, which I dislike is unusual for a baby if you like naming your baby fuzzy evidently came out of the womb looking like it. See if that. He was also the firstborn, the firstborn, which meant that he got all the blessing out real quick biblical theology lesson. Let me explain a blessing to you and every family in the ancient world. One of the kids almost always the oldest got the family inheritance which means that they got the majority of the property and the assets they got the rights of the family name. They got to be the patriarch of future generations. For the descendents of Abraham. There was this added element of inheriting the promise to bring forth the Messiah that have been promised Abraham so they would be one sign in every family that carried the messianic see well that is assumed to be Esau because he is the firstborn now. Jacob, his twin brother was the opposite of Esau. Just about every way. Jacob was more shall we say genteel what Isaac prefers Esau over Jacob and he makes it pretty clear in this of course is really hurtful to Jacob so Jacob schemes a way to steal the blessing of the firstborn from his brother Esau, I don't have time to go deep into the details of this majestic ruse. But here's the basic gist of it, I just really old and he thinks he's going to die. So he says I gotta come for the blessing officially on my one of my sons and he's going to do.

Esau so he tells Esau to go out into the field and hunt them up some beer and prepare it as a stew in the mill when he gets back delete it and he'll confirm the covenant blessing onto him and then Isaac assumes that he'll die so Esau leaves early in the morning, go out and hunt down the deer and I Jacob seizes opportunity.

Jacob takes a goat makes us too many dresses up in Esau's clothes and even takes the skin of the goat and attaches it to the back of his arms at his neck so he feels like he saw which I don't know what that says about Esau when someone wants to impersonate you and they wrap themselves in a dead goat so that they feel and smell like you, but that's a bit disgusting. The man's man thing is one thing that's taking it too far, so Jacob walks in with you. Esau's close in the stew and he got the go.

Here the smell all over me walks and he says how bad is that it's Esau it's Esau but Isaac is so old and we can see so poorly, here's a boy he falls for it and he confers the blessing on the Jacob thinking that Jacob is Esau what he Saul returns comes in with his two nieces that I'm here in then Isaac realizes what happened in recess on it's too late now all seem to me at this point what Isaac would just know we realize the mistake would've been like oh well, I think about you knowing. But evidently the blessing the covenant was irrevocable when it had been given there was a takeback clause that they threw in their Jacob has deceived his dad and betrayed his brother and stolen this blessing.

Jacob's name literally means deceiver, which I also thought was an odd name to give a baby liar. You may want your kids fuzzy in the other one wire just like they could've done better than that, but it's a play on words in Hebrew. You see, when Jacob and Esau were born, Esau was born first as I mentioned, and I guess you know Rebecca's womb was like. It does everything out here so I'm he came out first and as he was coming out of the birth canal.

It says that the little hand comes out after Esau and grabbed hold of Esau's heel like you there in a fight and he wants to get out. First, we must avoid back in so they making the first one to know Harry and then in the second kid they named him he'll grab him in Hebrew kill grabber is got coal knuckle, but it has a double meaning as another meaning in Hebrew, and that double meaning. This is a trickster or struggle or so we think you'll grabber at birth but the name fits also is a description of Jacob's character as he gets older, as a deceiver. Well of course he saw Spike Madden so he vows to kill Jacob to Jacob Hobson's Miata honey zooms off the someone else's mom tells me got some relatives in a far-off place called Iran.

So Jacob heads there. Eventually he arrived at the house of an uncle named Laban which brings us to the main part of this story for today, Laban has two daughters, one of the daughters is named Rachel and she is described for us in Genesis 2917 here. Rachel was beautiful in face and figure, which is a Hebrew way of saying that she was super hot, literally beautiful face each had acute face, figuring she had a very attractive by so that's Rachel. Now the other was sister was named Leah and well she was not on the originator indicates that ties into not-so-subtle ways. First, resident versus 2917 says Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel was beautiful in face and figure. Now were not exactly sure scholars.

Not sure what weak eyes means, but what we know. It doesn't mean is that she just couldn't see very well because notices putting the contrast Rachel's beauty if it is simply meant that she was nearsighted. It would've said Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel could see really really really really far, that would be the contrast the fact that it's in contrast to Rachel's beauty means that her eyes somehow messed up how she looked. Maybe they protruded really badly from her face and mess of the look of her face or most probably it meant that I will say this when she was facing east one of her eyes was checking on things up north and the other one was monitoring activity down the South. That's probably what it means the other way that we, the narrator lets us know that Leah was not very attractive is that Leah's name in Hebrew literally means count, you say well maybe maybe that had a different implication in Hebrew calling somebody a cow is an insult in any culture about universal and if your name happens to be Leah, but is not my fault. Okay, I know it means something different in English, but in the original Hebrew.

That's what it meant.

Okay so when Jacob first gets the areas of course, met with Rachel and I know you're thinking what a sexist pig. He only evaluates women by their face and their body. The Bible is so back yeah I am so glad we are not part of the society that any longer. Does that were guys don't evaluate girls first by how they look and what their bodies like we are so far advanced as that so whatever, right. So today the story of how Jacob and Rachel meet because you have any bearing on the points I want to make today but it's a super awesome and you can't give it Genesis 29 want to get a bottle of Mayor Jacob finally is going to Ron where his uncle Laban lives. He literally has nothing. He's an outcast from his family.

He is friendless he is penniless in the division him as a guy with nothing but a guitar strap was back in a $300 pair of us got a jeans around his waist enough product Italian loafers on his feet. Metal always got in his Miata so he comes up to the village where his extended family lives in a he slumps down on this big old rock covering well there. Now here's the description of the rock verse two the stone in the Wells novels really large is huge when all the flocks were gathered there. The shepherds would get together plural.

The shepherds would roll the stone from the mouth of the well well it's verse two and three, verse six, you know, there she comes walking up Iraq to the most beautiful girl you ever see, and so can speak well of this person also is Jacob's alright so you roll the stone from the Wells mouth by himself little genteel Jacob.

There is something about a good looking girl that gives this guy the ability to perform super human feats of strength.

Okay, so they meet negative talking and it turns out that not only is Rachel really pretty but their related as I mention her dad. Laban is Jacob's uncle, which makes them that's right first cousins. You would think that that would've quelled any romantic interest right there, but all know this is the Old Testament baby and in the Old Testament being cousins with somebody was actually a turn on.

So Jacob says to Laban, I want to marry my first cousin Rachel, Laban as well. You know I'm he related everything Thursday so that a patient on a broad price so Jacob volunteers I'll work for seven years together. Verse 18. Now that is an exorbitant price to put that in perspective, the going rate for dowries in those days would've been between 30 and 40 shekels, so offering 130 shekels meant to Jacob was offering more than four times the usual amount that you paid in order to merits somebody right now you may think that's really sweet, but what you're supposed to get the image of the year is here is a guy who would set is obsessed.

He is willing to do anything to get this girl. Laban knows a sucker when he sees one. So he agrees and Jacob work for seven years. Right now I give is a verse that you want to read is really sweet but has a different implication in the narrative verse 27 years seem like just a day because of his love her now again sweetie right what it means is that every day he got up thinking about Rachel and went to bed thinking about Rachel.

He's not doing for anything except seven years is been obsessed with Rachel, the seven years are verse 21 to Jacob comes to Laban and says I have fulfill my contract not to be my wife so we can be married now that she's not a very good translation in English and Hebrew what it literally says is I fulfill my contract give me my wife so we can have sex and use it with something accrued yet. Robert Alter the Jewish commentator on Genesis says it is uncharacteristically crass and crude, that ancient narrators never put that kind of stuff in a narrative to the fact that he puts it in there means that he's trying to show some of the vulgarity of what's going on in Jacob's mind.

He is obsessed with Rachel, just different to me and think about this for seven years so that we can have sex for seven years he's been thinking about one thing you see Jacob does well a lot of people who deal with the disappointment in life. Do they search for their answer, their life's problems in finding that one true romantic love someone they think will fulfill them.

Someone who will give been meaning someone who will make your life worth living. I described before, let you Jacob. Most guys, like the other floating or drowning in a sea of loneliness and despair and low self-esteem and along by floats of 5 foot two blonde headed like reserve what is a drowning man doing he sees a life preserver. He reaches out any claims to it and he clings to it for dear life and he suffocates the life out of her because he is looking for something in her that she was never designed to give to him. That's what Jacob is doing with Rachel FOR THE CEREMONY AND COMES LABAN WITH JACOB'S BRIDE WHO HE'S WORKED FOR. FOR NOW, SEVEN YEARS SHE'S WEARING.

OF COURSE THE TRADITIONAL VEIL WHICH COVERS ALL OF THE FACE WITH A WET THEY GO TO THE CEREMONY AND JACOB IS SO HAPPY THAT HE REALLY POUNDS DOWN THE BOOZE OF THE RECEPTION AFTER THE PARTY TAKES HIS BAIL WIFE BACK TO HIS TENT IN THE DARK. OF COURSE, AND THEY SPEND THEIR FIRST NIGHT TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE.

JACOB FEELS LIKE SOMETHING HAS GONE RIGHT VERSE 25 AND JACOB AWOKE THE NEXT MORNING, AND BOLD. IT WAS LEAH BEHOLD INDEED WAS LEAH SO YOU HAVE SOME BAD HONEYMOON STORIES, I HAVE A COUPLE BAD HONEYMOON STORIES I'VE TOLD YOU I THINK SOME OF THEM I HAVE ONE WHERE MY WIFE AND I WENT SNORKELING ON OUR HONEYMOON.

AND YOU KNOW I WAS IN THE WATER FIRST AND I SEE YOUR JUMP IN AND YOU SHIP IS RED BATHING SUIT SHE BOUGHT FOR OUR HONEYMOON AND SO WE WERE MARRIED FOR THREE DAYS LAST ONE UP TO UNDERWATER ALL SECRETIVE AND MASTER TECH ON HER CURRENT UNIT IS LIKE A MANSION. ONLY THING WAS LIFELESS AS LEADER THAT SHE'S KICK IN AND THRASH AND YELL AND I'M THINKING THIS IS HILARIOUS Like 20 SECONDS I'LL POP UP OUT OF THE WATER.

IT'S NOT HER IS NOT, OR ANY SUBJECT WAS A GIRL SO YOU WILL WRONG WIFE. I LOOK UP AT THE BOAT AND THERE IS MY WIFE AND THIS GIRL'S HUSBAND, LOOKING IN THE WATER LIKE WHAT'S GOING ON SO I PUT MY HEAD UNDER WATER AND SWAM HIS 5 MILE HALF OF WHAT WORDS I FIND MY WIFE LIKE AN HOUR LATER AND IT IS THAT A LITTLE TALK ABOUT, AND OF COURSE WE KEPT RUNNING INTO THE SAME COUPLE AT EVERY RESTAURANT THAT WE ATE THAT WE LIKE THEY ARE AGAIN.

I HAVE A BAD HONEYMOON STORY, BUT THERE AIN'T NOTHING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ANY OF YOU LIKE THIS JACOB GOES BACK. OF COURSE SHE'S FURIOUS AND HE SAYS TO LABAN, WHAT'S THE DEAL.

LABAN'S AS A WHOLE, JUST NOT THE CUSTOM IN OUR COUNTRY TO MARRY OFF THE YOUNGER BEFORE THE OLDER I'VE ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT JACOB DIDN'T SAY BACK. WELL, THAT WOULD'VE BEEN A GREAT POINT TO MAKE SEVEN YEARS AGO NO CUSTOM GIVES LABAN THE RIGHT TO COMMIT FRAUD, BUT LABAN NEVER JACOB NEVER EVEN SAYS LABAN ON THE CONTRACT. JACOB IS NOT SO MUCH AS OFFER A SINGLE WORD OF ARGUMENT WHY NOT, WHY NOT BECAUSE I THINK WHEN HE SAYS TO LABAN, WHY HAVE YOU DECEIVED ME. I THINK HE REALIZES THAT IT'S THE EXACT SAME PHRASE THAT ISAAC HAD SAID TO HIM, IF I GET THE EXACT SAME WAY IT'S WRITTEN IN HEBREW AND WHEN LABAN SAYS TO HIM AS OUR CUSTOM DAUGHTER. THE FIRST BOARD. JACOB REMEMBERS HOW HE HAD STOLEN THE RIGHT OF THE FIRSTBORN FROM HIS OLDER BROTHER JUST LIKE ISAAC HAD REACHED OUT IN THE DARK, THINKING IT WAS ESAU AND JACOB DECEIVED HIM, SO JACOB HAS NOW REACHED OUT IN THE DARK FOR RACHEL AND LABAN HAS DECEIVED HIM. THE DECEIVER HAS BEEN DECEIVED YET.

YOU SEE IT NOW. JACOB IS BROUGHT FACE-TO-FACE WITH WHO HE IS, HE SO OBSESSED WITH RACHEL, HOWEVER, BUT NOT EVEN THIS CAN DETER THEM.

SO GET LABAN TO AGREE THAT IF A WORK FOR ANOTHER SEVEN YEARS AND HE'LL GET RACHEL AS HIS WIFE TO GRACIOUSLY LABAN GIVES RACHEL TO HIM RIGHT AWAY. INSTEAD OF MAKING HIM WAIT THE SEVEN YEARS LIKE HE GETS RACHEL ON CREDIT, YOU GOT LEAH THROUGH THE LAYAWAY PROGRAM BUT RACHEL. HE GETS IMMEDIATELY ON CREDIT SO THE SPACE OF ONE WEEK. HE'S GOTTEN TWO SISTERS AS WIVES WHO ONE IS EXTREMELY JEALOUS OF THE OTHER ONE. WHAT KIND OF HOUSE DO YOU THINK THAT YIELDED FOUR JACOB WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS THOUGH, HOW BAD MUST THIS HAVE BEEN FOR POOR LEAH I'M SHE'S A PERSON RIGHT IN ALL HER LIFE. SHE'S GROWN UP IN THE SHADOW OF HER STUNNING SISTER. THE ONLY WAY HER DEADBEAT DAD TO GET HER MARRIED OFFICE TO GET SOME GOT CRONK AND SWAP AROUND THE DARK, WHICH IS WHY VERSE 31. THE NARRATIVE SWITCHES ARE VERSE 31, BUT BECAUSE LEAH WAS ON LOVE THE LORD LET HER HAVE A CHILD. WHILE RACHEL WAS CHILDISHLY LOOKING PREGNANT HAD A SON SHE NAMED HIM RUBEN WHICH IN HEBREW MEANS SEE A SON FOR SHE SAID, THE LORD HAS SEEN HIS NOTICE MY MISERY AND NOW MY HUSBAND WILL LOVE ME. YOU SEE, HERE'S LEAH. EMILY IS THINKING JACOB DOESN'T LOVE ME. I'M NOT VERY PRETTY BUT YOU KNOW WHAT RACHEL CAN HAVE KIDS AND I CAN SO I KNOW THAT WHEN I HAVE A SON. ANOTHER WHEN I HAVE A SON AND THAT'LL MAKE A LOVABLE AND THEN JACOB WILL LOVE ME SO SHE HAS A SON SHE'S A CSI. DON'T YOU LOVE ME NOW YOU THINK IT WORKS WELL IN THE VERY NEXT VERSE, VERSE 33. SHE SHE BECAME PREGNANT AGAIN AND HAD ANOTHER SON SHE NAMED THIS WHEN SIMEON WHICH IN HEBREW SOUNDS LIKE THE WORD HEARD FOR.

SHE SAID THE LORD HAS HEARD THAT I WAS ON LOVE AND HAS GIVEN ME ANOTHER SON TO THE ONE SUNDAY JACOB LOVER NOTE BECAUSE SHE STILL IN LOVE IN THIS VERSE RIGHT AS YOU THINK OF THE FIRST SON DIDN'T WORK. BUT NOW THE SECOND SONNET WERE GOD'S HEARD MY MISERY AND GOT ANSWERED MY PRAYER BY GIVING ME A SON THAT'LL MAKE JACOB LOVE ME YOU THINK IT WORKED THE SECOND TIME.

I WILL KEEP READING VERSE 34 AND SHE AGAIN SHE BECAME PREGNANT OUT A SON SHE NAMED THIS WHEN LEVI WHICH IS THE HEBREW WORD FOR ATTACHED BECAUSE SHE SAID SURELY NOW MY HUSBAND WILL FEEL ATTACHED TO ME HELPFUL AFFECTION TO ME SINCE I HAVE GIVEN THEM NOW THREE SIGNS YOU SEE WHAT'S GOING ON, JUST LIKE JACOB.

SHE IS DEALING WITH HER DISAPPOINTMENT IN LIFE BY REACHING OUT FOR THAT ONE TRUE LOVE. ALSO, WHEN WE DEAL WITH DISAPPOINTMENT AND WHY WE ALMOST ALWAYS RESPOND THE SAME WAY RIGHT WIDENED BY MIDNIGHT ROMANCE SO I MAYBE THE NEXT ROMANCE THAT'S WHAT I'LL DO IT. THAT'LL MAKE MY LIFE COMPLETE. NOT IN THIS JOB BUT I KNOW I GET ANOTHER JOB IN MY CAREER WILL FEEL COMPLETE AND THEN I'LL BE OUT FOR JUST LIKE LEAH. WE KEEP HAVING SIGNS OF THINKING THAT ONE MORE SIGN IS GOING TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP, ANOTHER ATTEMPT ANOTHER JOB BUT IT ALWAYS ENDS UP THE SAME AND THEN IN VERSE 35 WE GET THE GOSPEL IS THE BEST PORTAL FOR OVER 35. ONCE AGAIN SHE BECAME PREGNANT YET ANOTHER SON SHE NAMED THIS WHEN JUDAH WHICH MEANS LITERALLY PRAISE TO GOD FOR SHE SAID, NOW I WILL PRAISE THE LORD MEANT SHE STOPPED TRYING TO HAVE CHILDREN GOSPEL WILL SEE JESUS IN MY BLAZE AND THERE'S A SECRET I'M AGAINST RIGHT. COUPLE THINGS IN GENESIS. THERE'S TWO WAYS TO WRITE GOD'S NAME. ONE WAY YOU COME FROM HEBREW ELOHIM AND IT JUST MEANS GOD THE CREATOR.

THE OTHER WAY WHENEVER IN YOUR ENGLISH BIBLE WHENEVER IT'S ELOHIM IS A GAD THAT'S HOW IT'S WRITTEN IN ENGLISH BIBLE. WHENEVER IS THE OTHER NAME WHICH IS YAHWEH OR JEHOVAH IS TO BE WRITTEN L ORD IN YAHWEH OR JEHOVAH WAS THE NAME THAT WAS GIVEN TO GOD IS HIS COVENANT NAME. IT WAS THE GOD OF THE PROMISE THAT GAVE HIMSELF TO ABRAHAM AND SET ALWAYS BE WITH YOU AND ALWAYS BLESS YOU ALL GIVE YOU SALVATION AND I'LL GO WITH YOU EVERYWHERE AND I'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU AND ALWAYS BE YOUR GOD.

AND THAT'S THE COVENANT NAME AND IT ONLY IS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE ENTERED INTO THAT COVENANT, THE FACT THAT SHE SAYS.

PRAISE BE TO GOD MEANS THAT I AM NOW FINDING MY JOY. I'M FINDING MY JOY IN GOD'S COVENANT WITH ME AND NOT IN MY ABILITY TO HAVE SIGNS. THAT'S THE NAME THAT LEAH USES AND WHAT IT MEANS IS PRAISE TO THE GOD BECAUSE OF THE COVENANT HE'S MADE WITH MEAT. IN OTHER WORDS, LEAH STOPPED TRYING TO EARN THE LOVE OF JACOB HAVING SIGNS AND RECEIVE THE LOVE OF GOD WAS GIVEN TO HER AS A GIFT AND THAT BECAME THE SOURCE OF HER JOY AND THE SOURCE OF HER PRAISE IN LIFE. HERE'S WHAT'S MORE, JUDAH IS GOING TO GROW UP TO BE THE ANCESTOR OF A VERY IMPORTANT GREG GREG MCGREGOR, GREAT-GRANDCHILD JESUS IS GOING TO BE REFERRED TO AS THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH. THIS WOULD BE THE SIGN, THROUGH WHOM JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF WOULD COME TO THIS LINEAGE BECAME BEAUTIFUL, NOT BECAUSE SHE HAD SOME PHYSICAL BEAUTY HAS ON-DEMAND BECAUSE GOD INDEED BEAUTY IS A GIFT GIVING LIKE LEAH LEARNED THE GOSPEL AND ENCOURAGING MESSAGE FROM PASTOR JD GREER ON SENATE LIFE IF YOU'D LIKE TO LISTEN AGAIN.

YOU CAN FIND THE FULL PROGRAM online@jdgreer.com talking a lot about prayer the last couple of weeks but Jenny had a difficult question today that many of us may have.

Is there such a thing as unanswered prayer not really injured. If your godchild not really because father never turned a deaf ear to his job now.

That said, there are there are prayers that God redirects because as a dad. He knows better than us. Sometimes God God in love answered your prayer the way that you would have asked him if he knew what he knew right so just because it doesn't look like an answer prayer doesn't mean it isn't an answer prayer. Furthermore, there's a lot of things I got was to give us the persistence and asking which is a repeated theme in Jesus's teaching. God is testing our resolve in his goodness or belief that that he really is good. So much of our Bibles was written for in the posture of people were waiting on God believing that he is going to answer and come through really wrestle with that question.

Throughout this book. Just ask because it's been one of the biggest impediments been one of the one of the areas ironically they got is used to deepen my own spiritual life and increase my trust in him.

So in just ask.

We really cannot get into that and say practically how do you let that you would motivate your prayer life rather than stymie invited JD Greer.com know that prayer can be a struggle.
