The Secret Of The Benjamin Generation Hidden In The cool4Christ™ Christian Apparel Emblem

Filed Under (Clothing) by Kev1 on 19-06-2008

I have been busy liasing and working out some production stuff with my t-shirt factory these past couple of weeks. With God’s blessing, I should be able to launch our first t-shirt design pretty soon. :)

cool4Christ™ Christian Apparel Emblem - The Inner ‘c’

In the meantime, here’s another interesting nugget about a feature of the cool4Christ™ emblem, the ‘c’ facing down. This ‘c’ forms a silhouette personifying the Christian on earth today - The Benjamin Generation!

Why the Benjamin Generation? And what is the Benjamin Generation?

Well, the Benjamin Generation refers to the end-time generation, the generation of believers before Jesus comes again. This generation is marked by God’s grace. Benjamin’s life was a life of undeserved favour and blessings.

When baby Benjamin was born, his mother actually called him Ben-Oni, which means ‘son of my sorrow’. But his father Jacob called him Benjamin which means ‘son of my right hand’ (Genesis 35:18). The Bible says that when our LORD Jesus died on the cross for our sins, He became ‘A Man of sorrows’ (Isaiah 53:3). An when He was raised from the dead, conquering death for us, God raised us up and seated us together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus making us ‘sons of His right hand
(Ephesians 2:6).

Joseph’s first words to his brother Benjamin when he saw him after so many years of separation were words of grace.

29 Then he lifted his eyes and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother’s son, and said, “Is this your younger brother of whom you spoke to me?” And he said, “God be gracious to you, my son.” - Genesis 43:29 (NKJV)

Grace is what the Benjamin Generation is all about.

Then Joseph brought Benjamin and his brothers to eat. And the Bible says that Benjamin’s serving was five times as much as any of his brothers’.

34 Then he took servings to them from before him, but Benjamin’s serving was five times as much as any of theirs. So they drank and were merry with him. - Genesis 43:34 (NKJV)

This generation will have five times more food and drink. ‘5’ incidentally is the number representing God’s grace in the Bible.

Next, Joseph’s silver cup was put in Benjamin’s sack. It was an empty silver cup. Silver in the Bible speaks of redemption. Saving, redemption. Why was it empty? Because Jesus drank all the cup of our condemnation, shame, uncleaness and now there is no more condemnation for you and I.

2 Also put my cup, the silver cup, in the mouth of the sack of the youngest, and his grain money.” So he did according to the word that Joseph had spoken. - Genesis 44:2 (NKJV)

We have been given a message in our sack. The silver cup points to Jesus’ redemption, the finished work of Jesus on the cross. Our message is that there is no more judgement from God, the cup is empty.

And when Joseph told the brothers that Benjamin had to remain, Judah stood up for Benjamin and offered himself instead (Genesis 44:18-34). We are privileged to be the Benjamin generation, because Judah stood up for Benjamin. So this Benjamin Generation will have favour with Jesus, the Lion of Judah, who gave Himself up for us.

Also look what Joseph later gave Benjamin.

22 He gave to all of them, to each man, changes of garments; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver and five changes of garments. - Genesis 45:22 (NKJV)

The three hundred pieces of silver speak of full redemption. And again, we see the number ‘5’, the number of grace. So God provides plenty of food and drink, and plenty to wear for the Benjamin Generation. Cool! We are not like any other generation. We are the Benjamin Generation. Hallelujah! The generation on whom God lavishes undeserved favour and blesses five times more! The generation of the end-times, where we are blessed with the best of all the world (Genesis 45:18-20). Wow… just think about it!

    It amazes me always at how much thicker the Bible is than its number of pages when one digs into its truths. Can we go a day and not discover something new and interesting, yet it all fits together as the one great story of our Savior.

    Dear Friend,

    I never heard of the “Benjamin Generation” but I do like your reasoning. In particular, how Judah offering himself to save Benjamin, as compared with Jesus offering himself to save this generation.

    You haven’t blogged since July of ‘08. I pray that all is well and that you will soon be back blogging 4 Christ.
