---It is the little foxes that destroys the vineyard. Little sins like collecting idols, which Rachel did and the sons of Jacob.

---Doukhan shows us the problems of Jacob and his family regarding these idols. Some even may have worshipped them.

---But the God of the covenant want a renewal of that covenant and wanted all to go to Bethel again for that renewal.

---God succeeds in His plan to give everyone a chance for renewal and repentance and salvation.

---God promised generations to come for Jacob. He promised the Messiah as one of those generations. He promised also a promise land or Eden recreation in the Eschaton (Genesis 35:11).

---Hebrews 11 by Paul also understood that none saw the Promise Land sinc they kept looking for it.

---Zion in the Prophets is heavenly Zion as dwelling of God.

---Heavenly Jerusalem is the city built by God.

---The Mountain of God where His throne is, is not the Temple platform that Herod built for the temple on Mount Moriah.

---None of the geomorphological physical mountains of physical Israel qualify for this Mpontain of God where His throne is.

---At Bethel the emphasis was on God not on the place.

---Worldliness is innocent idols that one can make almost out of everything, says dr. Doukhan. Come out of her that you do not get her plaques, the Lord says.

---Countryside living is what God has in mind for the eschaton. But people is like Lot clinging to the city. Angels will also have to airlift them before destruction.

---Just like Lot.
