                                                                 TOPIC: REVEALING THE FUTURE
 Memory verse:- "To you in days to come. "Assemble and listen, sons of Jacob; listen to your father
                       Israel. "Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, the first sign of my strength, excelling
                       in honor, excelling in power. Turbulent as the waters, you will no longer excel, for you
                       went up onto your father’s bed, onto my couch and defiled it. "Simeon and Levi are
                       brothers—their swords are weapons of violence. Let me not enter their council, let me
                       not join their assembly, for they have killed men in their anger and hamstrung oxen as
                       they pleased. Cursed be their anger, so fierce, and their fury, so cruel! I will scatter
                       them in Jacob and disperse them in Israel.
                     "Judah, your brothers will praise you; your hand will be on the neck of your enemies;
                       your father’s sons will bow down to you. You are a lion’s cub, O Judah; you return
                       from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness—who
                       dares to rouse him? The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from
                       between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations
                       is his. He will tether his donkey to a vine, his colt to the choicest branch; he will wash
                       his garments in wine, his robes in the blood of grapes. His eyes will be darker than
                       wine,his teeth whiter than milk.
                     "Zebulun will live by the seashore and become a haven for ships; his border will extend
                       toward Sidon. "Issachar is a rawboned donkey lying down between two saddlebags.
                       When he sees how good is his resting place and how pleasant is his land, he will bend
                       his shoulder to the burden and submit to forced labor. "Dan will provide justice for his
                       people as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan will be a serpent by the roadside, a viper
                       along the path that bites the horse’s heels so that its rider tumbles backward. "I look
                       for your deliverance, O Lord. "Gad will be attacked by a band of raiders, but he will
                       attack them at their heels. "Asher’s food will be rich; he will provide delicacies fit for a
                                                                                                                                 -Gen. 49:1-20
It was a common practice for dying fathers to bless their children and they spoke the blessings in the spirit of revealing the future. Their words were so heavy and insightful that it became obvious
that in their blessings they spoke the mind of God.
It seems that the blessing upon each son was connected to his name and deeds. Reuben was for excellence but his sin of defying the bed of his father reduced him. Simeon and Levi were the same and that is telling us that sins reduce the dignity or excellence of humanity. Reuben would have remained the first sign of Jacob’s strength, excelling in honor, excelling in power. Turbulent as the waters but sin bought him trouble. We need to stay away from sin and that can only be done when we submit ourselves to the teachings and leading of the Holy Spirit.
 Prayer:-pray for strength to overcome sin
              pray that Holy Spirit will lead you in all things
What to meditate on:
What is sin and how does it work?
