I have had two dreams this past month that I cant help but think there may be a connection. Im going to write both of them, and you can draw your own
In my first dream, I was fishing. I saw my ex wife, and I heard a young child in the background which I thought was my son, yet I dont have a son in
real life. I asked my ex wife who that was, and the baby called out to me..." Its me, Benjamin ". When I woke up, I thought..who is Benjamin?
In my second dream, near a month later, a friend of mine named Gary is is walking his dog over to my place of work in the evening. I see him for a
second, then he dissapears in a dark parking lot, but his white dog, whose name is Jasper, runs up to me, and I pet him. He was happy.
When I woke up, I thought, why Jasper? Why didnt Gary come with him?
Does the name Jasper mean something?
While these two dreams may seem like nothing, I have come to note that many times my dream focuses on one particular point. That being said, when I
remember the major name or component of a dream I look it up and research it often with interesting results.
I have nearly 2 years of dream logs with some startling references to biblical events. But in regards to the name Benjamin, I rarely say it or read
it. Same with Jasper. The name Benjamin, and the name Jasper, upon doing a little research, have an interesting correlation. Here is a quotation of
"The Jasper, the last stone in the Old Testament breastplate, represented Benjamin. This was a clear stone, speaking of total victory. On the
Jasper stone was Benjamin's name, which is a combination of two Hebrew words (BEN and JAMIN), so scholars tell us, meaning 'the son of my right
hand'...or, as one authority puts it, 'the son of my power.' The first and last stones pointed forward to the first and second coming of the great
High Priest--none other than the Lord Jesus Christ.
If one does a little studying, you will see that Benjamin has some reference to the lost tribe of Israel. The Jasper Stone to that of Jesus Christ.
The two together...in separate dreams for me...so odd but why?
Last March of 2007, I had this dream.
There was Man in a stairwell who picked up some broken pottery and it reassembled in his hand
He asked me my name, and I said; Melchezi,
He asked me my name again, and again I said Melchezi.
I looked at his face, and it appeared to be made of stone
He said something about God
We walked down the stairs and he said, he is in Egypt. ( Or possibly, " he is an egyptian ").
In the end times, young men will have visions, and old men will dream dreams....
