Jacob   Wednesday 09/27/17  Message – The God of Jacob Series: Thru the Bible – Genesis 47-50 [powerpress] ***Video is HERE***   The God of Jacob Genesis 47-48 (We just read and commented) Chapter 49 – Jacob’s prophetic word over his sons Vs 3-4 Reuben As 1st born Reuben had certain rights of inheritance, but these he forfeited through pride, dishonoring his father and sexual sin – Gen. 35:22.
