Sukkot is a Jewish Holiday that lasts for 7 days. It is also the time many Messianic Jews believe YAHUSHUA was born so we say in reverence and joy HAPPY BIRTHDAY YAHUSHUA OUR MASHIACH! WE WORSHIP, LOVE, ADORE YOU AND WILL SERVE YOU FOR ALL ETERNITY!
Read why YAHUSHUA was not born on Christmas and why
most biblical scholars agree that YAHUSHUA's birth, in fact, did not take place in December at all.
When YAHUSHUA was born the shepherds were at watch in their fields (Lk. 2:8) which could not have been in the Winter. In fact it can be shown that YAHUSHUA was born at Sukkot (Boothes/Tabernacles) in 4 B.C.E..
The key to calculating the date of the birth of YAHUSHUA is Luke 1:5 where we learn that Zechariah the father of Yochanan was a priest of the course of Abijah.
The priests became to numerous to all serve at the Temple all the time, so they were divided into 24 courses (1Chron. 24). Each course served for two weeks each year, once in the former rain (first half of the year) and once in the latter rain (second half of the year). There were also three weeks in which all the priests were required to serve, these were the three pilgrimage festivals (Dt. 16:16). 24 times 2 is 48 plus three is 51. 51 weeks is 357 days fitting nicely within the 360 day lunar year.
The course of Abijah is the eighth course (1Chron. 24:10) which serves the tenth week during the former rain portion of the year (this is because during Passover and Shavuot (Pentecost) all fo the priests serve together Dt. 16:16). Zechariah had his vision while serving in the course of Abijah in the tenth week (It will become apparent that he was serving his first course not his second as the timing will show as we progress). Thus Zechariah's vision took place during the 10th week of the year (The religious year beginning at Nisan/Abib around 14 days before Passover). We must add two additional weeks before Yochanon (John) could be conceived, due to the purity laws (Lev. 12:5; 15:19, 25).
So Yochanon was concieved in the 12th week of the year. He was born about 40 weeks later during the 52nd week of the year (12 + 40 = 52) which brings us to Passover. Thus Yochanon was born at Passover, the very time that Elijah was, according to Jewish tradition, supposed to appear.
YAHUSHUA was conceived 6 months (about 25 weeks) after Yochanon's conception. This means YAHUSHUA was conceived around the 37th week around Chanukah. This would mean the light of the world was conceived during the festival of lights.
YAHUSHUA was born 40 weeks later (around week 77 that is week 25 of the following year) this brings us to the time of the fall feasts.
There are several clues that YAHUSHUA was born at Sukkot:
1. Bethleham was "booked solid." This would not have been due census which would have taken place over the period of a year. Every Jew was required to come to Jerusalem for Sukkot (Dt. 16:16) this would have over run Jerusalem as well as Bethleham just five miles away.
2. YAHUSHUA was born in a stable. The Hebrew word for "stable" is "sukkah" (as in Gen. 33:17) so it is likely that YAHUSHUA was born in a Sukkah/booth.
3. If YAHUSHUA was born on the first day of Sukkot then he would have been circumcised on the "eighth great day" a festival following Sukkot. This day was the original "Simchat Torah" (Rejoicing in the Torah) which is now held the following day in Rabbinic Judaism. So YAHUSHUA would have entered the covenant on the day of "rejoicing in the Torah."
4. When the angels appeared to the shepherds they made a statement which closely echos the ancient Sukkot liturgy "...behold, we have come to declare to you glad tidings of great joy." (Lk. 2:10-11)
5. Sukkot is symbolic of God dwelling in a "tabernacle" (body?) with us.
Now in Mt. 2:7-8, Herod kills all the children two and under. The fact that he killed such a wide range indicates that he did not know quite how long ago Messiah had been born. YAHUSHUA's parents fled to Egypt until they heard Herod was dead. They were back in Bethleham in time to perform Miriam's (Mary's) purification and YAHUSHUA's dedication
on the 40th day after YAHUSHUA's birth (as required by Torah) (Luke 2:22-38).
By this time Herod had to be dead or they could not have come to the Temple in Jerusalem. Herod had to have died during the 40 days between YAHUSHUA's birth, and his dedication 40 days later. Herod is known to have died in September of 4 B.C.E. So YAHUSHUA had to have born in the fall (this rules out that Zechariah could have been serving during Abijah's second course of the year, since that would place YAHUSHUA's birth in the Spring and not allow for Herod's death during the 40 days after his birth in the fall). This also tells us that the year of YAHUSHUA's birth was 4 B.C.E.

Oil Burning Menorah
WHEN YOU USE THE MENORAH FOR CHANUKAH consider USING OIL INSTEAD OF CANDLES.
Also consider using oil wicks to welcome in the Shabbat for the same reasons.
OIL represents the RUACH ha KODESH, not candle wax!
Looking For Oil Menorah
Remember, the 5 wise virgins were not carrying candles but oil lamps. Actually,
it is even better to use olive oil -- since the miracle of the Maccabees [Book 1
Book 2] occurred with olive oil. Many Jewish bookstores even sell kits of
pre-measured oil portions in disposable cups. These cups can simply be placed in
the candle holders of any standard menorah. If you can't find these, USE the
candles, I may be forced to do the same. We are going out looking today but the
chances of finding this in the mountains are slim.
I have a grieving in my spirit as I study and compare other translations to the
King James Bible. I have always relied on this version for the truth and it does
contain the truth but why were books purposely omitted from the KJV Bible?
For instance in the New Jerusalem Bible you will read the missing Psalms as well
as read the book of Maccabees and Judith, to just name a few. Isn't it ironic
that the Greeks who are also called Romans were the ones that actually crucified
and tortured our Messiah YAHUSHUA also called by the name JESUS CHRIST. It is
the Greeks that tried to take the Jewish peoples freedom of worship away. Now we
rely on King James to teach us the truth about the Jewish people and of course
who YAHUSHUA is. It is proven King James refused to allow some books like Enoch
in the KJV bible.
When I was pondering about this and wondering on why King James would purposely
censor the prophets of the Bible, I heard the HOLY SPIRIT say to me "What is the
name of this Bible?" I said aloud for I knew I was getting a new
revelation..."King James!" On November 19, 2002 all of a sudden it hit me! The
audacity of King James to name a bible after himself, a mere man and a sinner
who may or may not have been saved by grace! The word that was made flesh should
never have been enclosed by a book with a mans name on it!
How many bibles have covers that are black. This has always grieved the Ruach in
me for there is no darkness to the Holy Scriptures. I wonder if King James will
pay a price on Judgment day for omitting the missing books and sacred names of
our Creator and Messiah. I encourage you to read the missing books of King James
and ask why they were not included. I have only just begun.
I encourage you to study Hebrew translations and Aramaic for these were the
languages spoken in Israel and especially by YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. YAHUSHUA is a
JEW why would HE have spoken Greek in Jerusalem or Israel? Why did King James
give a Greek name of JESUS to a Hebrew baby? The actual name given in the bible
of KJV is Immanuel which means God (YAHUVEH) is with us. Has anyone else
pondered how that name got changed to JESUS or JESUS CHRIST? I know CHRIST means
anointed but that still doesn't explain to me why King James did this in his
Sacred Names Removed
Also why were the transcribers ordered to remove the sacred names of YAHUVEH and
YAHUSHUA? How many times does it say in the Bible "those who are called by my
name" and yet KJV has taken the sacred names out of the bible 7,000 times and
replaced them with generic words like Lord and God. Please don't think the NIV
is acceptable for it has been more altered than the KJV. Has anyone else ever
questioned why would Sarah call Abraham lord? The word Lord to me means
ownership having full rights in all ways that's my only Lord and SAVIOUR who's
name is YAHUSHUA which means YAH SAVES or YAHUVEH saves! The saving and
delivering power is even in his Hebrew name and the name YAH, the name of our
Heavenly Father YAHUVEH is in YAHUSHUA'S name. That is why YAHUSHUA taught, The
father is in me and we are one.
Well now I have done it, the very thing I asked YAHUVEH not to have me teach the
people, for those that will misinterpret what I am saying, or the enemies of
mine and this ministry will slander me and tell all manner of lies. Proof again
that I speak and teach what YAHUVEH tells me to say under the anointing of the
RUACH ha KODESH even if it means more enemies will come. I must remember the
battle is YAHUSHUA'S not mine! I have the office of an Apostle and that
encompasses all 5 fold offices including teacher and now I must teach you the
truth, what you do with it is up to you. Just because you don't like it doesn't
mean it isn't true.
Use the KJV
Before I get an onslaught of email let me answer the question," Do I use the
KJV" and the answer is yes. I do use the KJV but I also compare it with other
translations that have not only the Greek but Hebrew and Aramaic that are
translated in English. If anyone can tell me where I can find a Study Bible in
large print with all of these translations I would consider this a gift from
Heaven! If anyone wants to give me this as a gift I would treasure it and use it
to not only study and show myself approved but to teach others. I had no
intentions of writing any of this, but since I am writing under the anointing of
the Ruach ha Kodesh the truth is out once again. Please just remember I am just
the handmaiden bringing you the message.
What Would YAHUSHUA Want Us To Do, Celebrate Chanukah Like Him Or Xmas?
Read this and let the truth set you free! Many of you have written and asked me
when I would be writing if we are to celebrate Xmas. I have stalled as long as I
can knowing how angry this would make even our partners. I will not lie to you
this isn't pleasant for me either for I also miss the old Xmas customs.
On November 21, 2002 at 4:00 a.m., the anointing hit me and a peace that passes
all understanding came upon me. NOW I am free to share with you and teach you
what I have learned. If you still love me after you read this will you please
drop me an email ? How about a Happy Chanukah email card? If you want to send a
letter by postal I will understand when its late.
You Can Still Give Presents
Rejoice for YAHUVEH is our provider and the one whom all blessings flow in the
Name of YAHUSHUA. I can hear the groans now, for I know those that hear the
voice of YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA and the anointing of the RUACH ha KODESH and our
beloved partners will obey, but they will say "What about all the Christmas
gifts we bought the kids and others?" Here is the good news! Give the presents
to them on Chanukah and teach others the true story of Chanukah! You have 8 days
to plan, instead of one Christmas dinner have a CHANUKAH feast or a Party!
For our beloved friends of this ministry who want to send us Xmas gifts I know
its short notice but how about CHANUKAH gifts? Since I am giving you late notice
it doesn't matter if it doesn't arrive on CHANUKAH just so we know you meant it
for that day. We will be posting more on how to celebrate CHANUKAH in the coming
days ahead as our CHANUKAH present to you.
One thing more my son already has what is called Xmas lights up in his bedroom
but we call them CHANUKAH lights and guess what they stay up ALL year long! The
lights remind us who is the most beautiful guiding light in the world. YAHUSHUA
is his name! Since this is the festival of lights we decorate with lights! Now I
can't help it if the world calls them Xmas lights, we call them CHANUKAH lights!
So those of you who want to do the same feel free and decorate with colorful
lights and Jewish decorations.
Instead of playing Xmas music like 'Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer,' 'Jingle
Bells,' or 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,' etc., play Messianic Jewish music
and Christian Holiday music glorifying YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA! Make that homemade
chicken soup and buy or make potato pancakes topped with sour cream, apple sauce
or butter. YUM! Fix that special Christmas dinner early and invite the relatives
Tell them to come get their presents early if you want to exchange gifts. Just
let them know you no longer take part in XMAS for you found out that it has
nothing to do with YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH for that is not his birthday! King
Nimrod is in hell and that is who's birthday that is really being celebrated,
King Nimrod is the babe in the manger! OUCH, that hurts but I will prove to you
I spoke with a man recently that was born an orthodox Jew but because of a life
saving miracle his mother gave her life to YAHUSHUA days after Sean's birth. You
will read his testimony very shortly. Sean taught me we really should be
lighting oil lamps not candles on Shabbat. The Oil represents the RUACH ha
KODESH, what does the wax of a candle represent? I got to thinking about the 10
virgins and how they had OIL in their lamps although 5 ran out of oil and missed
the coming of the bridegroom.
We will not be celebrating Xmas but we do celebrate Chanukah and when we light
that first candle [Shamish] that lights the rest what it reminds us should be
how YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH is the only guiding light that lights our path. The
Chanukah story should be told to the Children not 'Twas The Night Before Xmas.'
Stop Telling Lies To Your Children
Parents you are teaching your children to distrust you when they find out there
is no Santa Claus! My son found out at the age of 10 and the first words out of
his mouth was,
"Mom you're a prophet and you lied to me!" That was my first lie I told my
children and from there how many of us were exposed. These are the only lies I
told my children and how many of us are exposed. And the next words he said rang
true."I suppose there is no Easter bunny either or tooth fairy"? (My son will
shortly be turning 18 and he has not forgotten that day.) OUCH, that hurts.
Parents, I know this sin is washed away with the shed blood of YAHUSHUA for I
have asked for forgiveness but how sad for we followed the customs of the
heathens and fell into the trap of satan by doing so. Parents, what we see as a
harmless lie, trust me, it is NOT harmless. The child will never forget this.
The last thing my son said to me hurt so bad. "I suppose God isn't real either?"
"Of course YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA are real," I said! He looked at me and said "I
know that mom, but you lied all those years about Santa Claus and the other
parents are doing the same." Then our son had a revelation, he said Santa Claus
is "satan's claws"! Out of the mouth of babes this prophet boy Elijah spoke the
truth! How many of us have satan's claws in us by speaking these lies to
innocent children that trust us?
I know I used to say God YAHUVEH gave his best gift YAHUSHUA to come to earth to
be our Saviour and so now YAHUSHUA sends Santa Claus to bring them gifts. What a
lie! I am so ashamed of myself but grateful I am forgiven.
The Chanukah Story Is Biblical
It is not a lie! It is a story of how the Greeks forced the Jews to conform to
their ways. The Greeks forbid them their freedom of worshipping on the Shabbat.
The Greeks forbid them to study and read the Torah. The Greeks defiled the
Temple by sacrificing a pig thus defiling the Temple and mocking all that is
holy, for that is an unclean animal according to the scriptures.
When the Jews were able to get back their freedom to worship in the temple they
only had enough oil to light the oil lamp for one day in the Temple, they had no
time to make more oil. The miracle is YAHUVEH multiplied that oil to last for 8
days instead of 1 day! YAHUVEH is our provider and how much more will He do for
us when we come to Him in the righteousness of his Son YAHUSHUA!
Please consider celebrating Chanukah this year and shun the pagan lies. YAHUSHUA
was not born on Dec. 25 for the shepherds would not be tending their flocks in
the winter! YAHUSHUA was born on what is called Sukkot and the manger was a
Lean-to. Why celebrate His birthday on the wrong day? When you do this you are
celebrating Nimrods birthday! One who others called a king. Christians have been
tricked into believing and promoting a lie.
Even the trimming of the tree is forbidden in Jeremiah. We will be posting more
proof of this. For now please rejoice and celebrate Chanukah with us! Yes you
can even exchange presents as long as you remember your doing this in
remembrance of the gift YAHUVEH gave the Jews that day as he multiplied the Oil.
May the RUACH ha KODESH anointing be multiplied and stirred up within each of
you who celebrate Chuanukah. May the blessings of YAHUVEH in Deut. 28 for those
that obey be yours and multiplied.
Use Oil not Candles in the Menorah if at all possible and for welcoming in the
Shabbat! To get the finest oil from an olive, you've got to press it very hard.
So too, the Jewish people are at their best when they are under pressure. I
admit there is something pretty about the tiny colored candles, However colored
candles are not scripturally correct. Olive oil was the fuel that was used.
The Miracle Of The Menorah Oil
Olive Oil was used in the original Menorah in Jerusalem because it produces a
beautiful flame, olive oil is the best choice for the Chanukah menorah. We are
commanded to remember this miracle when the Jews recaptured the Holy Temple from
the Greeks, the first thing they did was light the golden Menorah. They had only
enough oil to last for one day, and new oil would take seven days to prepare.
But a miracle happened. Instead of burning for one day, the Menorah stayed lit
for eight days. Today we light our menorahs for eight days to recall this
miracle and to remember that YAHUSHUA represents the eternal light that was sent
from Heaven to light our path. Also we remember that through YAHUSHUA'S name all
of our needs will be supplied according to His riches in glory. We will be
protected and are blessed as in the days of old, having Victory over all of
YAHUVEH'S and YAHUSHUA'S enemies...if we can have faith to believe.
Vicious Attacks From The Enemy
This ministry, have come under vicious attacks from our enemies. Attacking this
ministry, for it stands for holiness and obedience to YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA. We
are believing for TOTAL VICTORY during this time of Hanukkah, just as surely as
He gave victory to the Maccabees during the time the enemies defiled the temple
and put a pig on the alter. Today, on November 27th, 2005, YAHUVEH spoke forth a
word through me during an anointed prayer.
The enemy seeks to defile this ministry again. Read Maccabees about the
descrecation of the altar with a pig. He sent the first 'swine' to do this
against this Ministry, Tari DeMario. The rest followed, attempting to do the
same. YAHUVEH is exposing them for the swine they are. Just like those filthy
animals, they eat garbage (false doctrine) and spew it out in the form of lies
and blasphemies. YAHUVEH will soon silence them once and for all and take them
off the air permanently.
Revolt Of The Jews
The Hebrew word Chanukah means "dedication". In the 2nd century B.C. the
Syrian-Greek regime of Antiochus (pictured) sought to pull Jews away from
Judaism, with the hopes of assimilating them into Hellenism and Greek culture.
Antiochus outlawed aspects of Jewish observance, including the study of the
Torah which began to decay the foundation of Jewish life and practice. During
this period, many of the Jews began to assimilate into Greek culture, taking on
Greek names and marrying non-Jews also observing and keeping the pagan customs.
In response, a band of Jewish settlers took to the hills of Judea in open revolt
against this threat to Jewish life. Led by Matitiyahu, and later his son Judah
the Maccabee ("The Hammer"), this small band of pious Jews led guerrilla warfare
against the Syrian army. Antiochus sent thousands of well armed troops to crush
the rebellion but the Maccabees succeeded in driving the foreigners from their
Jewish fighters entered Jerusalem in December, 164 B.C. The Holy Temple was in
shambles, defiled and desecrated by foreign soldiers. They cleansed the Temple
and re-dedicated it on the 25th day of the Jewish month of Kislev. When it came
time to relight the Menorah, they searched the entire Temple, but only one small
jar of oil bearing the pure seal of the High Priest could be found.
Miraculously, the small jar of oil burned for eight days, until a new supply of
oil could be brought.
From then on, Jews have observed a holiday for eight days in honor of this
historic victory and the miracle of the oil. Today, the observance of Chanukah
features the lighting of a special Chanukah menorah with eight branches plus the
Shamish [center] candle used to light them all, adding one new candle each
night. Other customs include spinning the dreidel (a top with Hebrew letters on
the sides), eating "oily" foods like potato latkes (pancakes) and sufganiyot
(jelly donuts), and giving Chanukah gelt (coins) to children. Christmas is only
one day but Chanukah the celebration goes on for 8 days!
Christmas Is Not A Christian Holiday
Is it really too much to ask for us as parents and worshippers of YAHUVEH and
YAHUSHUA to teach this world the truth and flee from the pagan rituals of the
heathen? The heathen taught us that Xmas was honoring YAHUSHUA our Lord JESUS
CHRIST when really how many of those Christian songs sung at Christmas even have
the name of JESUS in it?
I started feeling the grieving of the RUACH ha KODESH also called the HOLY
SPIRIT when XMAS started being written and taking out the name of CHRIST in
CHRISTMAS! When I read how I had copied the heathens customs by decorating a
tree with gold and silver that was cut down, again I felt shame. I know I am
forgiven and so will you be, IF you read the below and repent as I have done.
Follow not the ways of the heathen!
I also loved Xmas, but now I know what is right and I know what is wrong. Now
you also are held accountable for what you now know and read.
How can we deny this any longer for Jeremiah warned us in the scriptures.
Warning Against Idol Worship
1 HEAR THE word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel.
2 Thus says the Lord: Learn not the way of the [heathen] nations and be not
dismayed at the signs of the heavens, though they are dismayed at them,
3 For the customs and ordinances of the peoples are false, empty, and futile; it
is but a tree which one cuts out of the forest [to make for himself a god], the
work of the hands of the craftsman with the ax or other tool.
4 They deck [the idol] with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and
with hammers so it will not fall apart or move around.
5 [Their idols] are like pillars of turned work [as upright and stationary and
immobile as a palm tree], like scarecrows in a cucumber field; they cannot
speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them,
for they cannot do evil, neither is it possible for them to do good [and it is
not in them].
Ok my beloved sisters and brothers in YAHUSHUA lets take the verses one at a
1. These are the words for the house of Israel and WE are the house of Israel
for we belong to YAHUSHUA and are grafted into the branch as his vines.
2. LEARN not the ways of the heathen! OUCH! none of us can say we learned about
Santa Claus from the RUACH ha KODESH also called the HOLY SPIRIT now can we? We
can't say this is biblical or in the Torah or Tanakh now can we? Where does it
say the date of YAHUSHUA'S birthday was December 25 in the Holy scriptures? It
doesn't because it is not there. We have believed and promoted a lie! Satan is
the father of liars so REPENT as I have done and turn away from promoting or
taking part in this lie anymore for your souls sake!
What's Wrong With A Christmas Tree?
3. I use to go and let my kids pick out the Christmas tree, haven't you also
done that? I didn't think it was a god but took pride in its beauty as it was
all decked out in gold and silver ornaments especially the gold and silver
tinsel on the Christmas tree. How many of us put an angel atop the tree? We
thought it meant the Holy angels right? But the truth is when we do this and we
are following a heathen custom we were pleasing satan who once was the most
beautiful angel of all! Worst of all we slowly killed the tree the minute we had
it cut down although we tried to keep it alive with water in the pot knowing it
Ok, you may say you used an artificial tree so your not killing a tree. Lets
examine this for I did the same thing, besides the stepping on the pine needles
in bare feet or the pain of sweeping them up wasn't worth the pine smell, now
was it? Why would satan have us cut down a live tree? Who is the tree of Life?
Why YAHUSHUA is the branch of the tree and we are the vines right? What was
YAHUSHUA crucified on, a tree! Why would satan want us to decorate a tree that
symbolizes the cross our beloved Messiah hung on, was tortured on and died on ?
Oh how we grieve YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA when we did these things and did not know
4. Remember that green or red tree stand? How many of you have the same tree
stand? We don't have to fasten the tree down with nails, we use the bolt to
screw the tree so it won't topple and it will die standing up straight, right?
We don't want the Christmas tree to move, do we? Especially when our children
greedily grab for their Christmas presents excitedly on December 25, Nimrods
birthday! Who is Nimrod you ask? I will get to that later.
The Tree Is A Mockery Of YAHUSHUA
Here is a revelation given to me while going over this page with my site
manager. The Christmas tree is a MOCKERY of the death of YAHUSHUA on the cross,
because both use nails (or a stand in the case of the tree) to hold them up.
Both are held upright. YAHUSHUA died with nails in his hands. Perhaps, before
the stand, trees were nailed down so they would stand up. Neither the tree, nor
YAHUSHUA when He was on the cross, are allowed to move. Satan mocks the
crucifixion. Now, knowing that, do you STILL want to have a tree in your living
room and decorate it?
5. The only one that will be angry that you have forsaken this pagan celebration
of Xmas will be satan. I will not put the name of CHRIST in this pagan
celebration for it is a lie it is not about the CHRIST we serve our YAHUSHUA!
Have you ever noticed even the stock markets is gauged on how many toys and
presents you bought that day? Have you noticed suicidal spirits hit people and
more commit suicide and are depressed on that day then any other time of the
year? Maybe now you will understand these people are being tormented by satan
and he is trying to sacrifice them just like the evil king Nimrod killed.
If you are contemplating suicide, please read Ted's Story.
Now I will tell you who Nimrod is and what that babe in the manger on December
25 really is all about as well as who Nimrod's mother is and how even she is
connected to December 25.
For of old thou hast broken thy yoke, [and] burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I
will not serve. For upon every high hill, and under every green tree, thou
bowest down, playing the harlot.
I know that many Christians reading this will be alarmed that I will dare to
write against this. However, study your facts. Babylon worshiped the child-king.
The great king Nimrod in his mother's arms was center to their celebration at
the solstice. Now it is true that YAHUVEH loves us so much that He gave the gift
of His beloved son our Messiah named YAHUSHUA also called Jesus Christ and that
we are thankful for that. However, if YAHUSHUA also called Jesus Christ were
born and never died, what profit would it be to us? If he had not resurrected,
would we still be redeemed?
What I am saying is his birth itself was the beginning not the end. We rate it
higher than His death and that is just plain wrong. It is by his dying and being
raised that we have eternal life. Remember this truth it was not the babe in the
manger that was tortured and nailed to the cross it was a 33 year old Jewish man
that was born from a virgin named Mary and HE is also the only begotten SON of
YAHUVEH our Creator and Heavenly Father.
Mary [mariam] Unscripturally Elevated
The only reason that we celebrate His birth so highly is because the Catholics
in an effort to elevate Mary as the mother of God, adopted the pagan tradition
to worship the baby to further their agenda as to dare to put Mary as part of
the GODHEAD, the HOLY TRINITY elevating her to a place where she is worshipped
by Catholics and prayed to as the intercessor before YAHUVEH.
Mary herself the Bible tells us called YAHUSHUA, her Lord. Mary also needed a
SAVIOUR she also fell short of YAHUVEH's glory otherwise it would have been Mary
that was crucified as that spotless lamb of YAHUVEH for the remission of our
sins. Mary never intended to be worshipped. Nowhere in the bible does it state
that she thought of herself any higher than being blessed to have given birth to
YAHUSHUA. The Bible clearly states there is but one way to our ONLY HOLY FATHER
GOD YAHUVEH and that is through the name of YAHUSHUA and the BLOOD of YAHUSHUA,
HE is our only intercessor!
CHANUKAH is 8 days of Praise, Worship, Feasting and FUN!
Lighting the Menorah, exchanging presents, feasting and best of all sharing the
TORAH and TANAKH we call it the old testament. Especially the first 5 books in
the Bible. This is a day both adults and children can share in and the adult
doesn't have to lie and pretend there is a Santa Claus.
What is a Dreidel?
Buy yourselves some dreidels and start having fun spinning them like tops. Now
it isn't that easy to find Dreidels, if you don't have a messianic Jewish shop
near you try a Christian bookstore. I still haven't bought any for us. I am
going to ask Sean who lives in New York if he can get us some. Have contests and
see who's top spins the longest but realize when your doing this the history of
In Judaism, even something as simple as "spinning a top is really not a child's
game. During the time of the Maccabees, Jews were imprisoned for the "crime" of
studying the Torah. While in jail, these Jews would gather together to play
dreidel. Under the pretense of wasting away their time, they would have Torah
discussions and thus defy the enemies of Judaism defy the enemies as the name of
our Creator YAHUVEH was lifted up and praised!
Every dreidel has four sides with one Hebrew letter on each side. Each of these
letters begins a word. The four letters are: - Nun - the first letter of the
word nes, which means "miracle" - Gimmel - the first letter of gadol, which
means "great" - Hey - the first letter of haya, which means "was" and - Shin -
the first letter of sham, which means "there" When taken together, these letters
proclaim "A great miracle happened there." The "game of dreidel" reminds us of
our eternal defiance of anyone who tries to stand between a Jew and the Torah as
well as stands between the God of our Creation who is YAHUVEH and his Son the
God of our SALVATION who is YAHUSHUA.
How to Play
On Chanukah, everyone loves spinning the dreidel. Have contests to see who can
spin it the longest or who can get the most dreidels spinning simultaneously.
And of course, there's the famous dreidel game played for Chanukah "gelt:" if
you don't have monopoly money use pennies or anything else. Nun - no one wins
Gimmel - spinner takes the pot Hey - spinner get half the pot Shin - spinner
matches the pot.
When giving presents you can give a present for eight days instead of one day!
When you explain all of this to your children you will find they really won't
think they are sacrificing that much. Use this time to teach the Torah for every
child will benefit from this as well as the adults and yes even your unsaved
relatives! This may be the only time you can witness to them in this way.
A Spiritual Lesson for Us
What spiritual lesson can we learn from CHANUKAH besides YAHUVEH will provide
for all of our needs and multiplies blessings? Morals and ethics is the Jewish
legacy, and that is the reason we do not celebrate Chanukah with a military
parade. We esteem King David not because he was a warrior, but in spite of it.
He could not build the Temple even though he desired to because his hands were
bloodied. And this even though he fought only at the command of YAHUVEH.
His son Solomon, the man of peace, was fitting to build the Temple. The Midrash
(Parshat Be'halo'secha) quotes YAHUVEH telling Aaron the High Priest: "Lighting
the Menorah will be your eternal contribution to the Jewish People." We ask
"Lighting the Menorah was done only while the Temple was standing. So what does
it mean for us today that "lighting the Menorah is eternal?!"
The answer is that the truths we learn from Torah are eternal. Particularly as
society grows increasingly desperate for direction on ethical issues, the truth
of Torah is precious today more than ever. On a world full of issues like
cloning, euthanasia, the homeless, abortion, homosexuality, the death penalty,
poverty, and sexual morality, the Torah shows the thin line of balancing wisdom
and revelation from YAHUVEH through His Holy Scriptures and realizing when what
the world teaches us in educated knowledge can be wrong . The Torah teaches
wisdom is YAHUVEH's way and not the world's way proving we cannot serve two
masters for we would hate one and love the other.
As King Solomon says in Proverbs 6:23, and this is our message for Chanukah. KJV
says 23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of
instruction are the way of life.
Cookies were left for the hearth god to appease him. This tradition goes back to
the days of Jeremiah. "The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the
fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and
to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger."
