Jacob and Rachel

Dear Beloved, 

This study will be on Jacob and Rachel, one of the great love accounts from the Bible.  When I first heard this life account, I thought it was messed up on Laban; the Father's part.  He gave the oldest daughter away and tricked Jacob with giving him, Leah. With time and maturity, I started to look at the layers of what was going on. How Jacob and Rachel were being taught to be reliable and on time.  

There was a 9 Fruit of the Spirit growth process going on with Jacob and Rachel. His/Her fruits of the Spirit were being developed. The first fruit of the Spirit Love was easy. It says in the Bible that Jacob's love for her was so great that the years felt like days. With the wait, there came Joy, the excitement of when they do get together it will be Amazing! 

Jacob worked 14 years for Rachel there had to be a Peace that he got only from YAH and Yahshua. To find that Peace Him/Her had to build their relationship with YAH and Yahshua for strength. They were basically told this is your Husband/Wife but you have to wait, everything is in YAH's timing and He knows what is best. 

He/She had a longsuffering /forbearance for one another a right, a moral commitment to be together. When Jacob said I will work for her for seven years he made a commitment. When he said he will work for seven more years he made a deeper commitment. How deep was he willing to go? Just writing this is blowing my mind, because we do make deeper commitments that push our limits like walking into deeper water. It makes you look at how much we do want to live. Jacob and Rachel wanted to live for each other and be there at the right time.  

There was Kindness to be developed, during this time his/her heart had to be kind and tender for one another. To have the moral of  Goodness with each other; to trust each other 100%. Jacob and Rachel had to practice Faithfulness by staying faithful to their work and handle their duties. During this time Jacob was being worked on to be a gentleman and Rachel was being worked on to be a gentlewoman. After coming together after 14 years they would have to know Gentleness

The last fruit of the Spirit is Self-Control, it is to control your emotions, desires especially in difficult situations. Jacob lacked that he was not in tune with his emotions at the 7-year mark when he was supposed to marry Rachel. He should have recognized his wife by the feeling of her presence. With such a deep Love connection Rachel had the same problem with emotions because she should have felt that he was marrying another woman. Not just any woman, but her sister. At fourteen years the timing was right for them, it was all in YAH's timing and it was for the best of them, the Nation and for others to witness a True Pure Beautiful Love Story.
