Genesis 49:27 Benjamin is a ravenous wolf, In the morning devouring the prey And in the evening dividing the spoil

Genesis 49:27 Benjamin is a ravenous wolf, In the morning devouring the prey And in the evening dividing the spoil.

Genesis 49:27 Benjamin is a ravenous wolf, In the morning devouring the prey And in the evening dividing the spoil.

Genesis 49:1-28 is an abstract of the entire Bible and a summary of the history of God’s people, as seen in the twelve sons of Jacob, the nation of Israel, and the church. It is also a portrait of the personal history of every believer. Jacob’s first four sons—Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah—were sinners, indicating that the history of God’s people begins with sinners. However, two of these sinners, Levi and Judah, were transformed to become priests and kings. Out of the kingship with Judah a kingly salvation was produced, which was preached as the gospel in the Gentile world by Zebulun and which issued in the church life with Issachar. But the apostasy came in through Dan, followed by the recovery with Gad, which issued in the sufficiency of the riches of Christ with Asher and in the resurrection with Naphtali. Finally, the history of God’s people concludes with Joseph and Benjamin, who typify Christ as the One who is altogether victorious and perfect, without defect. According to Jacob’s prophecy and Moses’ word, Joseph brought in God’s boundless, universal blessing (vv. 22-26; Deuteronomy 33:13-16), and Benjamin, God’s eternal dwelling place (Deuteronomy 33:12). Thus, the conclusion of Genesis 49 corresponds with the conclusion of the entire Bible—the universal blessing in the new heaven and the new earth, in which is God’s eternal dwelling, the New Jerusalem, as the issue and goal of God’s universal blessing (cf. Ephesians 1:3; 2:22). (Genesis 49:27 Footnote in the Holy Bible, Recovery Version)

    May we be those realizing our God-given birthright – a double portion of the land, the priesthood and the kingship. Cause us Lord to desperately seek and pursue you, rejecting the self to gain you to the utmost.
