I recently had a dream that was so unusual that I must say, I HAVE NEVER HAD A DREAM ABOUT A “CAMEL”. I will now relate the dream to you:
I was dreaming that I had been INVITED TO PREACH, but there was something unusual about the Invitation. I had been there before [I just had this thought but not sure… it was as if I had been there before on some other occasion]. For some reason I was walking to the town and place where I was to preach and in the journey there, I got lost along the way. I was for some time just traveling through this backcountry of up and down, and winding around pathway. It was such a remote place I was just thinking to myself: I will never get there at this pace, and I fully wonder where I left the main road to get into this mess?
As I was walking, suddenly I came upon a building, and out front I saw a man whom I had met before. He was a Jew. How I knew him I did not remember, but he remembered me. He said to me, “Come into this store with me and let me show you some very interesting things.” So I walked with him into this store where there were many shelves full of Antiquities [it was almost like a museum full of findings]. He walked toward a certain pottery bowl and reached out and carefully picked it up in his hands. “Look at this!” he exclaimed, “IT IS SO VERY AUTHENTIC AND BEAUTIFUL!” He continued to tell me how old it must be and where it had come from.
Suddenly I remembered I must go quickly to my invitation, because, looking at my watch, I had about 10 minutes before I was to go up to speak. I said to him, “I am sorry but I must hurry, I have to be there in about 10 minutes.” As I walked away, I passed by several young men [again all Jews, matter of fact everyone in the dream was Jewish] that when one of them saw me he loudly exclaimed to his friends, “LOOK THERE HE IS! I TELL YOU ,HE WILL BE MOVING HERE SOON… JUST YOU WATCH AND SEE!”
I did not stop, but continued on thinking to myself, What in the world was he talking about? Surely he must have me mixed up with someone else. But I remembered that I HAD BEEN WELL KNOWN IN THIS PLACE. I walked on wondering about all this to find myself again in the Backcountry and it was very confusing to say the least. I just wondered again, how did I get so lost? Surely there is a better way.
I then began to get anxious, because my time was growing very close. I thought to myself, I will not have time to even freshen up or prepare before going up to preach. I felt inside myself that I was not even prepared. What was I even going to say. “Oh well,” I muttered, as I shrugged my shoulders, “That is nothing new, rarely do I ever know what I am going to preach, before I preach anyway.” BUT I KNEW I MUST GET THERE FIRST.. WHAT WAS I WORRYING ABOUT.. I MUST HURRY??
SUDDENLY, I came to a crossroad, a small road leading to my right and going up a hill into a narrow valley. There stood the LARGEST CAMEL I HAVE EVER SEEN. He was just standing there looking down at me as if he was Lost. He had a thin line hanging from his nose loosely. I thought to myself SOMEONE HAS LOST THEIR CAMEL OR HE GOT AWAY. [I do not remember ever seeing but one camel, but I just know in my mind there were some more and they were all in a row. They were wandering around lost.] I walked up to the Camel and cautiously reached out my hand to take the small rope hanging from his nose, looking up it was if he had a smile on his face and thanked me for helping him. I said to him: “COME ON BOY, LET’S FIND YOUR MASTER.”
Now I am going down this country road with this Camel/s and suddenly I see the town. In the middle of this place was a HUGE BUILDING WITH STEPS LEADING UP TO THE FRONT DOORS… I knew it was the Place where I was to preach and headed on up the steps toward the front door. I looked again at my watch and it was only moments before I was scheduled to preach. WOW I said, “I am going to be late because of this Camel… what am I going to do with this Camel/s?”
Then, I saw many people coming up surrounding me and the Camel/s and they were acting like they were very happy to see the Camel/s. I spoke to one of them and said to him, “SIR, CAN YOU RUN INSIDE AND TELL THE MAN IN CHARGE OF THE MEETING THAT I AM OUT FRONT. I WILL BE A LITTLE LATE, BECAUSE I HAVE TO FIND THIS CAMEL/S MASTER FIRST.” The man agreed to go tell.
Suddenly I saw these dignified men, ALL DRESSED IN ROBES AND WEARING THOSE JEWISH CAPS… they came toward me very fast. THEY WERE ALL CRYING AS THEY SAW, NOT ME, BUT THE CAMEL/S … I heard them then say, “OH WHERE DID YOU FIND THE CAMEL/S?”
I woke up.
* * * * *
After I got up I related my dream to Celeste in amazement. I have never even seen a camel, but in a zoo, and here I am dreaming about a Camel and leading him about with a rope!. And….. what about that JEWISH PLACE? I have never had a JEWISH DREAM, MUCH LESS A JEWISH CAMEL DREAM.. MUCH LESS A “LOST JEWISH, CAMEL DREAM” ALL THE MEN IN THE DREAM WERE SO VERY GLAD TO SEE THE CAMEL/S.
It came suddenly into my mind, a bible Story [Genesis 24]; the story of Abraham and finding a Bride for Isaac. Abraham sent his servant to find a Bride for Isaac in [Mesopotamia , to the city of Nahor [Abraham’s brother].
Abraham did not want Isaac to marry anybody among the Canaanites. So the Servant took TEN CAMELS loaded down with gifts and fine treasure and Provisions, to offer some young lady that would agree to come and marry Isaac. Upon coming to a certain place the servant PRAYED DEFINITELY FOR CONFIRMATION. He prayed, Lord let a young woman [coming to draw water at evening time] agreeably offer to give him a drink, then to offer to water his 10 camels. Almost before he was through asking God for this, a young lady by the name of Rebekkah came to draw water.
When Abraham’s servant asked her for a drink she lowered her water pitcher and gave him water, and then she offered to water his camels. The Servant saw that she fit the direct answer to his prayer [who would unselfishly offer to water his camels… which was a very huge job!] he offered her gifts and asked if he would be welcome at her fathers house?
Later, as she took him home with her, because her father was so impressed, he was willing for Rebekkah to marry the young man, Isaac, sight unseen. The UNFORGETTABLE STORY climaxes with a wonderful picture of FIRST LOVE.
While traveling back to Abraham, Isaac was walking in a field in the evening, near his home, WHEN HE SAW THE CAMELS COMING. Then Rebekkah saw Isaac walking, and asked, WHO IS THIS YOUNG MAN WALKING IN THE FIELD? When she found out it was Isaac, she jumped down from the Camel and covered herself. Isaac took Rebekkah home to his mothers house. They found love immediately, they were married and lived happy ever after.
This wonderful story is all surrounded by A COMING CAMEL TRAIN BRINGING HOME A BRIDE FOR A PROMISED SON. Isaac was THE PROMISED SON to Abraham and Sarah [born out of due time] in direct promise. Not just anyone could be the BRIDE OF A CHOSEN “PROMISED” SON! The whole story speaks loudly of THE TYPE OF A MARRIAGE OF THE PROMISED SON.. AND HIS BRIDE. The Old Testament is full of such TYPE Stories…
We who know the Scriptures know that the SEEDLINE in the Old Testament has to do with the COMING FORTH OF THE ONE WHO IS CHOSEN SEED. His Name was of Course Jesus Christ. He was born of CERTAIN SEED and was a PROMISE to all ISRAEL and the World that he would come and be their SAVIOR [ Messiah].
This same Jesus [which the Jews are still looking for… because they have not received Jesus as their messiah] HAS PROMISED TO COME FOR HIS BRIDE. THAT BRIDE IS HIS PEOPLE. The Scriptures do tell us of the DAY when ISRAEL WILL SEE THEIR MESSIAH… JESUS CHRIST. They will see the wounds in his hands and ask, WHO DID THIS TO YOU? Then Jesus will say, I got them in the House of my Friends. They will then KNOW HIM. The Scriptures speaks very warmly of a COMING MARRIAGE FEAST OF THE LAMB. At this Marriage Feast, Jesus will be JOINED TO HIS BRIDE MADE UP OF HIS PEOPLE ISRAEL AND ALL BELIEVERS FROM THE WHOLE WORLD.
The fact is THE DAY IS SOON COMING THAT THE “TIMES OF THE GENTILES” WILL END. When that time comes ISRAEL will then be brought back in. The Scriptures tell us that the GENTILES WILL PROVOKE THEM TO JEALOUSLY because the Gentiles have ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST THE LORD AND MESSIAH but Jew have not. The day will come that the Church will be a living testimony to the Nation of Israel and the Jews will be SAVED IN A DAY. The Church at this hour are the living witnesses to Israel and bringing this glad tiding to their very door.
“For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
For this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins.”
Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all,” Romans 11:25-31.
Oh, someone said, that must leave you out because your a Gentile! NO. Not so, because the Scripture says that THERE ARE NOW NO JEW OR GENTILE.. but all are ONE. It says that the Gentiles have been GRAFTED IN TO THE ROOT OF ISRAEL and that they are one people.
In the Scriptures It says that CAMELS were coming bearing GIFTS. The fact is the CAMEL CARAVAN IS COMING!! AND WHEN IT GETS HERE, IT WILL BRING PROVISION FOR ALL.
“Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. So Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, “Please, put your hand under my thigh, and I will make you swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell; but you shall go to my country and to my family, and take a wife for my son Isaac.”
And the servant said to him, “Perhaps the woman will not be willing to follow me to this land. Must I take your son back to the land from which you came?”
But Abraham said to him, “Beware that you do not take my son back there. The Lord God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my family, and who spoke to me and swore to me, saying, ‘To your descendants I give this land,’ He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. And if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be released from this oath; only do not take my son back there.” So the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and swore to him concerning this matter.
Then the servant took ten of his master’s camels and departed, for all his master’s goods were in his hand. And he arose and went to Mesopotamia, to the city of Nahor. And he made his camels kneel down outside the city by a well of water at evening time, the time when women go out to draw water. Then he said, “O Lord God of my master Abraham, please give me success this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham. Behold, here I stand by the well of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water. Now let it be that the young woman to whom I say, ‘Please let down your pitcher that I may drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink’ — let her be the one You have appointed for Your servant Isaac. And by this I will know that You have shown kindness to my master.”
And it happened, before he had finished speaking, that behold, Rebekah, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother, came out with her pitcher on her shoulder. Now the young woman was very beautiful to behold, a virgin; no man had known her. And she went down to the well, filled her pitcher, and came up. And the servant ran to meet her and said, “Please let me drink a little water from your pitcher.”
So she said, “Drink, my lord.” Then she quickly let her pitcher down to her hand, and gave him a drink. And when she had finished giving him a drink, she said, “I will draw water for your camels also, until they have finished drinking.” Then she quickly emptied her pitcher into the trough, ran back to the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels. And the man, wondering at her, remained silent so as to know whether the Lord had made his journey prosperous or not.
So it was, when the camels had finished drinking, that the man took a golden nose ring weighing half a shekel, and two bracelets for her wrists weighing tenshekels of gold, and said, “Whose daughter are you? Tell me, please, is there room in your father’s house for us to lodge?”
So she said to him, “I am the daughter of Bethuel, Milcah’s son, whom she bore to Nahor.” Moreover she said to him, “We have both straw and feed enough, and room to lodge.”
Then the man bowed down his head and worshiped the Lord. And he said, “Blessed be the Lord God of my master Abraham, who has not forsaken His mercy and His truth toward my master. As for me, being on the way, the Lordled me to the house of my master’s brethren.” So the young woman ran and told her mother’s household these things.
Now Rebekah had a brother whose name was Laban, and Laban ran out to the man by the well. So it came to pass, when he saw the nose ring, and the bracelets on his sister’s wrists, and when he heard the words of his sister Rebekah, saying, “Thus the man spoke to me,” that he went to the man. And there he stood by the camels at the well. And he said, “Come in, O blessed of the Lord! Why do you stand outside? For I have prepared the house, and a place for the camels.”
Then the man came to the house. And he unloaded the camels, and provided straw and feed for the camels, and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him. Food was set before him to eat, but he said, “I will not eat until I have told about my errand.”
And he said, “Speak on.”
So he said, “I am Abraham’s servant. The Lord has blessed my master greatly, and he has become great; and He has given him flocks and herds, silver and gold, male and female servants, and camels and donkeys. And Sarah my master’s wife bore a son to my master when she was old; and to him he has given all that he has. Now my master made me swear, saying, ‘You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell; but you shall go to my father’s house and to my family, and take a wife for my son.’ And I said to my master, ‘Perhaps the woman will not follow me.’ But he said to me, ‘The Lord, before whom I walk, will send His angel with you and prosper your way; and you shall take a wife for my son from my family and from my father’s house. You will be clear from this oath when you arrive among my family; for if they will not give her to you, then you will be released from my oath.’
“And this day I came to the well and said, ‘O Lord God of my master Abraham, if You will now prosper the way in which I go, behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass that when the virgin comes out to draw water, and I say to her, “Please give me a little water from your pitcher to drink,” and she says to me, “Drink, and I will draw for your camels also,”— lether be the woman whom the Lord has appointed for my master’s son.’
“But before I had finished speaking in my heart, there was Rebekah, coming out with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down to the well and drewwater. And I said to her, ‘Please let me drink.’ And she made haste and let her pitcher down from her shoulder, and said, ‘Drink, and I will give your camels a drink also.’ So I drank, and she gave the camels a drink also. Then I asked her, and said, ‘Whose daughter are you?’ And she said, ‘The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor’s son, whom Milcah bore to him.’ So I put the nose ring on her nose and the bracelets on her wrists. And I bowed my head and worshiped the Lord, and blessed the Lord God of my master Abraham, who had led me in the way of truth to take the daughter of my master’s brother for his son. Now if you will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me. And if not, tell me, that I may turn to the right hand or to the left.”
Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, “The thing comes from the Lord; we cannot speak to you either bad or good. Here is Rebekah before you; takeher and go, and let her be your master’s son’s wife, as the Lord has spoken.”
And it came to pass, when Abraham’s servant heard their words, that he worshiped the Lord, bowing himself to the earth. Then the servant brought out jewelry of silver, jewelry of gold, and clothing, and gave them to Rebekah. He also gave precious things to her brother and to her mother.
And he and the men who were with him ate and drank and stayed all night. Then they arose in the morning, and he said, “Send me away to my master.”
But her brother and her mother said, “Let the young woman stay with us a few days, at least ten; after that she may go.”
And he said to them, “Do not hinder me, since the Lord has prospered my way; send me away so that I may go to my master.”
So they said, “We will call the young woman and ask her personally.” 58 Then they called Rebekah and said to her, “Will you go with this man?”
And she said, “I will go.”
So they sent away Rebekah their sister and her nurse, and Abraham’s servant and his men. And they blessed Rebekah and said to her:
“Our sister, may you become
The mother of thousands of ten thousands;
And may your descendants possess
The gates of those who hate them.”
Then Rebekah and her maids arose, and they rode on the camels and followed the man. So the servant took Rebekah and departed.
Now Isaac came from the way of Beer Lahai Roi, for he dwelt in the South. And Isaac went out to meditate in the field in the evening; and he lifted his eyes and looked, and there, the camels were coming. Then Rebekah lifted her eyes, and when she saw Isaac she dismounted from her camel; for she had said to the servant, “Who is this man walking in the field to meet us?”
The servant said, “It is my master.” So she took a veil and covered herself.
And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent; and he took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’sdeath.
