Benjamin By Signs

This article explores how to identify the lost tribe of Benjamin using signs. This is done in part through Jacob's blessing over Benjamin.

Sign Based Identification

Benjamin was the youngest of the Patriarchs. His mother died when she was giving birth to him. He was originally named Son of my Trouble.

Jacob's Blessing

Jacob's blessing is not a particularly strong blessing:

27ΒΆBenjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil. (Genesis 49:27 KJV)

27Benjamin is a plundering wolf. In the morning he will devour the prey and in the evening he will divide the spoil. (Genesis 49:27 BRB)

27"Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; in the morning he devours the prey, in the evening he divides the plunder." (Genesis 49:27 NIV)

The time references are likely mapping to this age especially the 7 times time intervals that reach into the modern era. The plunder is likely the land won in Israel's war of independence. In general, this was in effect a spoil of war from World War II.

That land recovery had political support in Europe only because of the deaths to Jews that happened in World War II. The world's collective memory of that event was quickly lost, and essentially all United Nations resolutions since that time have been hostile to Israel and her interests.

Holocaust

In Judges 20 there is the history of an attack on the tribe of Benjamin. In the end there are only 600 fighting men left who had fled and hid at the Rock of Rimmon. In Judges 21 they realize that an entire tribe had been wiped out and establish a plan for finding those remaining men new wives, restoring the nearly lost tribe.

This patterned again in World War II, again with Benjamin, the modern Jews. The restoration of modern Israel as a home for the Jews is following that ancient story.

The modern nation of Israel was birthed in a prophetic replay of that first Holocaust, a prophetic match to the death of his mother, the death and destruction of World War II.

World War II itself was an exact, timed, prophetic replay of Jesus' crucifixion, and his burial in the tomb is also a direct prophetic match to the formation of the modern nation of Israel.
