Hanukkah – Day 8 – The Dedication

Lighting the candlestick in honor and celebration of Hanukkah through the eyes of a follower of Jesus Christ.

And when eight days were complete…His name was called JESUS. (Yeshua). Luke 2:21NJKV

The eighth candle, the final candle of celebration and remembrance of God’s miracle in the Temple in Jerusalem.

“They brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord” Luke 2:22 NKJV


The Dedication.

“And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name means Simeon. (One who hears) “So he came by the Spirit…and he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said:


my eyes have seen Your salvation (Yeshua) which You have prepared before the face of all the peoples,

A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel.” Luke 1:22-32 NJKV

The miracle of the Light,

The wonder of each night.

Generations came,

Voices gathered in one proclaim,

“Holy, Holy, Holy!

All honor due His Saving Might!

Holy, Holy, Holy!

Praise His Wonderous Light!

I pray you have been blessed as the Holy Spirit has led through this season of honor, remembrance and celebration of Hanukkah through the revelation of His Light and Grace.

  1. My prayer for ALL the beautiful ones with all their ancient traditions etc is that God’s Holy People will come to the CROSS be washed by the Blood of the Lamb of God, and be ‘saved’. What you have written is absolutely beautiful but I still ache when I know so many Jews are still wailing at the wailing wall. The New Covenant cut by Jesus Christ at the Cross has bought, at a great price, the eternal spirits of ALL HUMANITY. It is written…….When the gentile world have finally come then, then will the scales fall off the eyes of Israel and they too will truly SEE ‘The coming KING of Kings and Lord of Glory.
    As a devotional what you have done and are doing here is truly inspirational. Thank you.

    1. Thank you Faye for your wonderful encouragement. I truly meant no disrespect towards the Hanukkah celebration or the Jewish people. I’m in love with them both. To know we are under the covenant of Abraham. Grafted in branches by the Blood of Jesus the Vine is amazing. Continued prayers until Jesus comes for His bride when veil will be lifted and their eyes will see. God bless you with good health and wellness to you and your family in the coming new year!
