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
“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.
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.
