Be A Light As Yeshua Is The Light
The only place in the entire Bible where Chanukah is celebrated isn’t in the Old Testament, it’s in John 10:22. “Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem.” The word Dedication in Hebrew is Chanukah. It says, “It was winter and Messiah was in the Temple.” Chanukah is in the winter and the Lord was there celebrating. At Chanukah, the Temple and all Jerusalem would be lit up with the lights of the Festival. As Yeshua stood in the temple courts and began to give His Chanukah message, they said, “Tell us who you are!” It should have been obvious, as He stood in the midst of the torches and oil lamps. It was the Festival of Lights. He was ‘Or Ha Olam’, ‘The Light of the World’ that bears the witness of God. Messiah celebrated Chanukah not by lighting a light, but by being The Light. Celebrate Chanukah as He did. Wherever you are, bear witness to God’s truth, love, and glory. Let your life become a sacred candle, a blazing torch, and a light to the world.
Scripture: Matt. 5:16
