Miracle of Oil-Happy Hanukkah

May The Light and the miracle never dim. May we see plainly that The Light is walking among us even now.


Child with menorah


There would only be enough oil

For just this one night

What would be the outcome

When the Menorah they did light


Once the flame was lit

Servant candle forever burning

Priest did tend the light of God

To this command concerning


What would they do

The dilemma and shortage

Only pure and sanctioned oil

Required to cleanse what has been distorted


What could they do

Yes, God and His commands

Did light the menorah

Saw the miracle by His Hands


For on this night

The oil did flow

So all could see

And all would know


There is a God in Israel

Miracle seen so all will know

Hanukkahs miracle of oil

Today does flow


In the faces of all who can see

Jesus, The Servant light of Menorah

The Light of God is ever brighter

Coming alive straight out of the Torah!

During the Maccabean revolt is recorded the miracle of Hanukkah. It was during the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem.  We see in scripture that Jesus Christ was celebrating the Festival of Dedication during the winter.

John 10:22 Then came the Festival of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in
Solomon’s Colonnade. The Jews who were there gathered around Him, saying, How long will keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.

I pray you see plainly your Messiah, which is Christ The Lord.


Revelation 1:10, 12-13 NOT

It was the Lord’s Day, and I was worshiping in the Spirit. Suddenly, I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet blast.


When I turned to see who was speaking to me, I saw seven gold lampstands. And standing in the middle of the lampstands was someone like the Son of Man. He was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across his chest.
