CHRISTMAS! Two.

Bearing the Name?

The virgin conception and birth of Yeshua is one of the key factors about Chanukka-Christmas, that the promised Messiah and the Saviour of Ha ‘Olam has come Elohim into human flesh the gift given for our redemption!

But being a believer in Yeshua comes with a cost, that of being ostracized from what ever group you belong too? Be targeted for being different, doing right, seeking to be honest or showing integrity? Because Ha ‘Olam is the opposite of everything that is honourable and it is a challenge for us to bear His name!

Jeremiah 29:11, 13,   Amos 5:4,   Luke 1:35,  37,   Yochanan 3:3,  14-17,   Colossians 2:2-15,  Hebrews 11:5.

Chanukkah! Two.

The fulfillment Of!

Malachi id the last Prophet of the Tanakh and much of what he has to say is about the decline in the standards required by Elohim in relation to Temple sacrifices! But we are then left with a four hundred year gap until the birth of Messiah to a young virgin in Roman occupied Israel!

But those four hundred years in Jewish history are not left empty, we have the rise of the Maccabees and the Hasmoneans revolting first against the Greeks and then the Romans?

But then the last Temple is finally restored and dedicated by the Festival of lights, looking back for Messianic believers we now understand this was a prophetic interlude to Yeshua words, I Am the light of Ha ‘Olam!

But there is more when Yochanan tells us that, ‘For Elohim so loved Ha ‘Olam that He gave us His one and only Son Yeshua!

Malachi 4:2,  Matthew/Levi 4:16,   Luke 2:32,   Yochanan 3:15-16,    8:12,    9:5,    Acts 26:18,   Ephesians 5:14.

Chanukkah! One.

Festival of Lights.

Chanukka remains one of the most popular and fun loving festivals in the Jewish calendar, as much for children and adults!

Being popular can sometimes miss the real message of what many today believe was the onset for the events of the entry of Moshia into Israeli society?

Israel was seeking a divine intervention over that of the initial Maccabean rebellion, people wanted assurances that Elohim was still with them and a deliverance was coming!

Exodus 2:23,  Ezra 9:13,  Psalm 3:8,  14:7,  40:16,  Luke 21:28,  Philippians 1:19.
