Hanukkah Day 5: Today’s date is 12022021, is both a palindrome and an ambigram: you can read it from left to right or right to left, as well as upside down. You cannot make this up. When I see this I am reminded that God is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end. He is in our past, our present, and our future.
God is doing a wonderful new thing in our world today. Evangelicals (gentiles), along with Messianic and Jewish people are celebrating the Lights of Hanukkah. Rabbi Schneerson, before his death in 1994, a well known Rabbi in Israel, said that the gentiles in the last days would provoke the Jews to Jealousy concerning Messiah. According to Ephesians 2:14-16 part of this last day’s prophetic fulfillment will be the One New Man, Jew and Gentile.
I fully believe that the Holy Spirit is drawing all – Messianic Jews and Christians – to understand that the festivals are meant to be celebrated for the DISTINCT PURPOSE OF POINTING US TO THE MESSIAH, KING JESUS: (Passover = Crucifixion; Unleavened = Burial; = Resurrection; Pentecost = Holy Spirit’s coming; Trumpets = Rapture/2nd Coming; Atonement = Judgment; Booths or Tabernacles = full reign of Yeshua, King Jesus established…..and the 8th that was added in 165BC: Dedication or Hanukkah or Lights/Feast of Dedication, John 10-22-24 = Jesus is the Light).
This is the fifth night of Hanukkah, His name is Immanuel, God is with us. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
May the Lord Bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious unto you; The Lord lift His countenance upon you, And give you peace. Shalom! Wellspring Israel
