Do you hear what I hear? A time of remembrance…
The Season is Nigh
The season is nigh
The time has come
God all powerful
Three in One
The time has come
Now is near
Do you hear what I hear
Time had come
His gift Divine
His only Begotten
Fullness of time
God ever merciful
Full of grace
In our unfaithfulness
He paid for our disgrace
When the time was right
Our Gift is Christ
Miracle of Oil

Hanukkah begins on Kislev 24, tomorrow night, November 28th on the Gregorian calendar. Our Jewish brothers and sisters light the first candle of the menorah in remembrance, commemorating the miracle of oil.
Are you familiar with Hanukkah? The Hanukkah story includes so many rich deep prophetic images, The Servant Candle, the miracle of oil, taking back the temple, rededication, lighting the menorah with only enough oil for one night available, due to the shortage of purified oil. If you are not I recommend you study this.
Our celebration of Christmas and the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah have many similarities. We know the Light of the World is Christ. Our Messiah is Christ Jesus. He paid the price to rededicate our earthly body back to God, cleansed by His blood, becoming a temple for God’s presence, anointed, housing the oil, giver of life, the light, the life, the eternal promise of Christ’s redemption. Yes, I Believe! It is a miracle.
When man reaches for God we call it prayer, when God reached down to man, we call it CHRIST-MASS. A Savior was born to be our King.
“For today in the city of David a Savior is born for you, He is Christ the Messiah” (Luke 2:11).
Yes I Believe! It is still the greatest miracle ever known to mankind.
“And of His kingdom there shall be no end”
“He will be great and eminent and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob (Israel) forever, and of His kingdom there shall be no end.””
Luke 1:32-33 AMP
God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.
Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
