Hanukkah’s Love

Hanukkah’s Light shines bright the Love of God long ago planned.

A Miracle Happened Here

Do you feel what I feel…

The mysteries of God
Miracles continue to unfold
Truths from Ancient of Days
Never ever tiresome, nor grow old

I feel it in my spirit! Do you feel what I feel…

Hanukkah’s miracle of love
Like oil flowing through my veins
Cleansing of the temple sought
The fight, the loss for gain

Yes I feel it in my bones
Warring across the land
Love’s Lampstand on the move
Salvation by His mighty Right Hand

Dating back before the Maccabees there was a game that included dreidels; a four sided spinning game piece. This game was later used as a decoy, when Torah had to be taken underground. Each dreidel has four letters on each side, the acronym for “Nes Gadol Hayah Sham,” which means “a great miracle happened there,” referring to the miracle of the oil lasting eight days in Israel.

The greatest miracle from Christ our Savior is rebirth, rededication, redemption, and restoration, from The Servant Candle flows the love of Christ to light the world.

Part of the priestly duties involved tending the lampstand, filling with fresh oil. A menorah, the Hebrew word for lamp, has seven branches. The nine branch menorah celebrated the miracle of the lamp burning eight days.

The Bible mentions the Feast of Dedication in the Gospel of John. “Then came the Festival of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon’s Colonnade” (John 10:22–23). This is the scene in which Jesus claims oneness with the Father, which unbelieving Jews intended to apprehend and stone Him (verses 24–39).

“When I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, I saw seven golden lampstands. And walking among the lampstands, I saw someone like a son of man, wearing a full-length robe with a golden sash over His chest.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭1:12-13‬ ‭TPT‬‬
