Description: (WWF Wrestling Spoof)
Wrestling Announcer: Get ready because the BWF Sunday Morning Main Event is on! This morning on the Bible Wresting Federation, we witness the guy who knows how to make a mean pot of stew, make your head spin talking speckled sheep, and work as long as it takes to get the wife he wants: Jacob the Deceiver… squaring off with the Great I Am; the Almighty, Awesome Creator of the Heavens and Earth: GOD!
Average Guy: God is so going to win!
Scandia Host: Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis to recount the second time God appears in the flesh: the first, to talk with Abraham; the second, to wrestle with Jacob.
Average Guy: I told you God was going to win.
Scandia Host: You’re right. God was merciful, though, because Jacob got to limp away from this match with only a dislocated hip. But this wasn’t about wrestling – this was a lesson. You see, in this scuffle, God was teaching Jacob something about strife and struggle… and how in those situations THE BEST response (for him and for us) is to simply cling to the Lord.
