God spoke to Jacab yet Jacob kept this to himself.

It is interesting that God spoke to Jacob telling him his offspring would inherit the land and when Jacob arose he set up a pillar over there and poured oil as a sign of thanks.

Yet he didn't tell anyone. He didn't start his own religion based on this but kept this to himself.

 Why? For one thing he had no witnesses and people should not just take him on blind faith and in addition he had his purpose here in setting out at the instruction of Rebecca to work for Laban and this prophecy didn't give him an escape from his basic missions he had here which he worked for Laban and got married.
