One reason, we as believers, need to celebrate Hanukkah is that Yeshuah celebrated it. The word Hanukkah means dedication and its observance is in December. John 10:22-23 KJV "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch." Hanukkah celebrates the miracle of the oil lasting eight days while new oil was being prepared during the rededication the Maccabees secured. Christians can light the Hanukkah menora to celebrate the miracle of new birth displaying the light for all to see. Just like Jesus told the pharisees to examine the works He does and see if they are from the Father, we too need to do the good works the Father gives us to do. Matthew 5:16 says "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven." As we honor Hanukkah we are saying Jesus IS the Light of the World!!!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
