DOING WHAT JESUS DID – “I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD” – HANUKKAH NIGHT 3

World - 12 O Clock Fire

“And He said to them, ‘You are from beneath; I AM from above. You are of this world; I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD” (John 8:23 NKJV). The third Hanukkah “I AM” statement of Yeshua is “I am not of this world,” which dovetails with our second Hanukkah “I AM” statements in John 8:23 “I am from above.”

Please recall that the passage John 8:12 through John 10:42 portrays Yeshua (Jesus) during the Feast of Dedication.  In Hebrew, the word for dedication or re-dedication is “Hanukkah.” Yesterday, I gave you a head start for today’s devotional reading by asking you to ponder the Antichrist that opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 KJV).

We are going to illustrate Yeshua’s “I am not of this world” statement through the intense history of Hanukkah itself, especially the incredible story about Chana and her seven sons.  Unlike the miracle of oil legend, the story of Chana and her seven sons truly happened. It’s recorded in the Book of Second Maccabees Chapter 7 and elsewhere.

Before we can get into Chana’s story, we need to understand what was happening in Israel at the time. Amazingly, Daniel had foretold of the Antichrist that arose during the actual events of the Hanukkah 300 years before. Within the history of Hanukkah is the most precise revelation about what is going to happen in the end times and how to overcome. In fact, for our day, we didn’t have the markers on the calendar to be able to calculate the fulfillment of the Antichrist being revealed until both Purim and Hanukkah were put in place. Messiah Yeshua tells us that the Abomination of Desolation is going to happen again to a greater degree, and He refers back to the first fulfillment of the Antichrist: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand), … For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:15,21 NKJV). Please refer to CHOOSE BEAUTY OR THE BEAST => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/02/choose-beauty-or-the-beast/.

There’s a blueprint for the end times in the story of Hanukkah, so pay attention. It was a time when Israel had been restored and God’s people had a temple. Never forget that we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). It was a time when a new civilization rose up – the Syrian-Greeks – who wanted everyone to be part of the same one world system. This new One World Order had an Antichrist – Antiochus Epiphanes IV – who demanded that everyone follow the ways of the Greeks, and solely worship the gods of the Greeks. Antiochus sent out a royal decree that every nation must give up its traditions and its gods to all be one in a New World Order. Everyone did, except Is-real.

Therefore, the Antichrist Antiochus vowed to wipe this stubborn people and their faith off the face of the map. Always keep in mind that had not Judah the Maccabee and his band of faithful men taken their courageous stand against the Antichrist of their day and had not overcome overwhelming odds to save their culture and religion from utter annihilation, both Judaism and Christianity most likely would not exist today. The enemy of our souls knew that the Messiah was coming then, and he knows that the Messiah is coming again very soon. Before the Messiah came the first time, there is an attempt made to destroy the faith of Is-real and make everyone apostate.

It is at this point that the first Antichrist Antiochus goes into God’s Temple and sets up an idol in His Holy Place. Some say it was a statue of Zeus put on God’s Altar. Some say it was Jupiter. In a sense, it really doesn’t matter, because both of them were Greek sun gods. It wasn’t a coincidence that this idol was set up in 168 BC on Jupiter’s Winter Festival, which was the 15th of Kislev which happened to be the 25th of December that year. Throughout antiquity, all pagan sun gods’ birthdays were celebrated on the ancient Winter Solstice – December 25th. So, the Antichrist Antiochus sets up an image on Christmas Day; then later sacrifices a pig on God’s Altar, as a sign of utmost contempt. This is when the Antichrist abolishes all sacrifices (i.e., wholehearted worship) to the Most High God, as foretold in the Book of Daniel (Daniel 11:31; Daniel 12:11); and makes God’s Temple a pagan temple. For greater detail, please refer to JOURNEY TO BECOME HIS BRIDE #1 and #2 => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/15/journey-to-become-his-bride-story-of-hanukkah-1/  and https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/15/journey-to-become-his-bride-story-of-hanukkah-2-battle-to-re-dedicate-gods-altar/. And/or the SANTA-TIZING videos #5 and #6 => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdhOh4iRD6c and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-qVfQtUaKA.

We should look for an actual manifestation of the Antichrist again, but don’t forget that the spirit of the Antichrist is already at work affecting our lives today. So, the Dwelling Place of God (which you are) becomes unholy. There are pagan celebrations in God’s Temple; therefore, the light that is in God’s Temple is in fact darkness/. Sexual immorality and every kind of defilement is instituted as worship in pagan temple that used to be God’s, and God’s people (the Jews in the Hanukkah story) can’t even go up to their Temple. [If you are reading this post as a devotional reading, you might want to censor the following for little ears, because things are going to get very graphic right quick.]

This is when the Antichrist ramps up persecuting God’s people, and the story of Chana and her seven sons comes into play. The Antichrist Antiochus takes four deliberate steps to forcibly make the people of the Book Greeks (i.e., hellenize them):

[1] Removal of the righteous high priest (seat of power) for one that would do man’s (the Antichrist’s) bidding.

[2] Dissolve the Biblical Calendar to remove God instilling holiness into time. The Antichrist forbid observance of seventh-day Sabbath, new moon celebrations, and biblical festivals that kept God’s people’s weeks, months and years holy.

[3] Forbid the Word of God (i.e., Torah) and keeping kosher (i.e., respecting the sanctity of life). Pigs blood was poured unto Torah Scrolls and these books were burnt.

[4] Forbid circumcision. If a family circumcised their baby on the eighth day, as a physical sign of their Abrahamic Covenant, the baby was killed and hung around the neck of the mother; then the mother was hung from gallows in the town square.

This is when Chana and her seven sons are chosen by Phillip the governor of Judea to set an example. Although Antiochus IV was on his way to Antioch in Syria, he turned back due to various resistance events, including the recent martyrdom of Elazar the Kohen. Chana and all seven of her sons were corporately and publicly brought to Antiochus Epiphanes IV. Then one-by-one Chana’s sons were personally brought before him from oldest to youngest. King Antiochus thought he could win these youngsters over through flattery and bribes, but he had not counted on the steadfastly righteous Chana and her rightly bringing up her sons in the way that they should go.

The eldest son responded to Antiochus: “Why do you trouble yourself with long conversations, to speak of and teach us the religions of your abominations? Our forefathers have already taught us God’s Torah. We stand ready to ascend to God, for we welcome death for the sake of God and His Torah [first five books of the Bible]. So we have promised our forefathers! Why need you speak more? Dispatch us speedily to HASHEM (YHVH) our God – kill us!”

Hearing the eldest son’s words, the king flew into a rage. He commanded that an iron frying pan be brought and put on the fire. He ordered his servant to cut off the boy’s tongue, hands and feet, flay the skin of his head, and place everything upon the frying pan over the fire while his brothers and mother were forced to watched. Then the victim – still alive – was put in a copper pot over burning coals. The Antichrist was so cruel that as the eldest son was about to die, he commanded Phillip to remove the pot from fire so that he would not die rapidly.

The Antichrist’s hope to intimidate Chana and her remaining sons didn’t work. One-by-one they affirmed their belief in the Most High God and their refusal to worship another. They all suffered the same gruesome death on the same day, except Chana’s youngest seven-year-old son suffered the most.

The governor of Judea and King Antiochus were crestfallen that their plan had not worked. A woman and her six young sons appeared to triumph over them. When Antiochus asked that the seventh brother be brought to him, he implored the little boy: “Do my will and I swear to you I will appoint you as my viceroy; you will reign over my entire kingdom. You will be wealthy, with gold and silver and many possessions.” The 70-year-old Antichrist was willing to give a 7-year-old his entire worldly kingdom, if only he would deny his faith and eat pig’s meat.

This little mighty man of valor showed everyone that “I am not of this world” when he refused the Antichrist, being encouraged by his mom: “The assurances of man are vain and empty – they will not avail nor give success. It is nothing compared to the everlasting world to come. Now my son! Let not this merciless tyrant reassure you with deceitful promises, do not rely on his pronouncements – for what can he give you? What can a human give, who has no control over his own body, over his own life?” When Chana’s youngest emphatically refused to defile the Name, the Antichrist flew into a rage and commanded that Chana’s last son be more brutally beaten than the others, then he was killed in the same way as is brothers.

Chana, unique in her devotion, being pious and pure, stood over the seven bodies of her sons strewn about the earth and she lifted her hands skyward. Chana prayed: “My heart exults in HASHEM. My pride is uplifted through my God, for through my sons He has chosen to reconsider His wrath against His people, that they may again be His servants. My mouth opens wide against my enemies, for they were unable to entice even one of my sons to turn to the service of their delusions (i.e., idols) which are of no avail and save not, for they are as nought. There is none as holy as HASHEM, and none but He is the savior of the souls trusting in Him.” When Chana finishes pouring out her heart, some versions say that her soul departed. Some sources say that Chana ascended a roof after her sons were brutally murdered and she threw herself off. Some say that Chana lost her sanity and committed suicide. Thus, the incredible price paid by one to be one with the Messiah who declares “I am not of this world.”

TAKE HEED THAT THE LIGHT IN YOU, BE NOT DARKNESS

heart-lovelight

If Yeshua (Jesus) declared, “I am the Light of the World” twice during Hanukkah, don’t you think His people should too?

Consider that we have evidence about “what would Jesus do” during the Winter One-Dear-Land Season. Jesus celebrated Hanukkah, not Christmas. “At the time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem; it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the Temple in the Portico of Solomon” (John 10:22-23 NASB). Not only did Yeshua celebrate Hanukkah, He knew the history behind the Hanukkah celebration.

Within Hanukkah, darkness is equated to Greece and Light is equated to Is-real. When the Hebrew Sages explain the deeper meanings creation, they equate the four nihilistic forces of tohu, vohu, choshech and tehom (“void, formlessness, darkness and abyss”) to the four nations that have risen to rule the world: Babylonia, Persia, Greece and Rome. This is one of the reasons that Greece is equated with darkness.

The other reasons that Greece is equated to darkness are revealed in the story of Hanukkah itself. The central figures of the historical Hanukkah story were the good guys – the Maccabees – versus the bad guy(s) – the Syrian-Greeks with the Antichrist Antiochus Epiphanes IV who was prophesied by Daniel 300 years before the first event took place. This same Antichrist Yeshua referred to in Matthew 24:15. See https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/02/hanukkah-marker-to-calculate-fulfillment-of-antichrist/. The bottom line is Yeshua was telling us when we see the Abomination of Desolation take place, it’s the beginning of the end when the world will experience the greatest tribulation that it has ever seen. When we understand the history of Hanukkah, we will understand what will happen in the end-times and how His people can and will overcome.

At the risk of death, Yeshua went up to Jerusalem to celebrate Hanukkah. It was at Hanukkah that Yeshua performed the most essential miracle that proved that He was/is the Messiah – healing a man born blind. Most Christians gloss over what Yeshua fundamentally did during Hanukkah, and what He honored. The Maccabees overthrew pagan sun god worship on God’s Altar in order to purely worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. Yeshua celebrated this! This is equivalent in our day to Christians overthrowing the worship Christmas in the people’s hearts. Sun god worship is at the very root of Christmas, and God’s Altar is in His people’s hearts. See https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/06/the-roots-of-christmas/. Never ever forget that Yeshua proclaimed, “I am the Light of the World” in the midst of the feast that celebrates the re-dedication of our hearts.

There are many more details to the history of Hanukkah, but God’s people overthrowing sun god worship (i.e., Christmas) and its Antichrist enforcer are fundamentally the most important facts of Hanukkah. Please refer to the “RELATED RESOURCES” section for a more thorough explanation about Hanukkah History.

Luke 11:35 tells us to take heed that the light which is in us be not darkness. We can believe that we are worshipping the true Messiah through Christmas worship, but that is not what history and Scripture reveals. It’s the false Messiah – Metatron Mithra – that’s being worshipped in and through Christmas. In other words, its darkness and a way that has seem right to a man. This is not easily seen by those caught up in Christmas. God has allowed it to be purposely difficult, so only pure bridal hearts will endure to the end by pressing through. Bridal hearts have to lay everything on God’s Altar to test its quality. If it’s pure and spotless according to God’s Plumb Line, then its eternally true. Yeshua once told me: “This is My greatest treasure in deepest darkness. My Bride choosing Me and My ways when everyone and everything is coming against Her.” Choose this day between the darkness of the Antichrist and his sun gods (Christmas) and the light of the Messiah (Hanukkah).

When God’s people celebrate feasts as Jesus did, it will be a lynch pin of light that will bring the One New Man in the Messiah (Jew and Gentile) together. It is also a major key to the sons of the Living God coming into their fullness and manifesting resurrection life – becoming part of the Oneness Metatron Matrix.

Celebrating the feasts in God’s Word that Jesus and His Father celebrate will prove that we are ONE with the One who proved He was the Messiah during Hanukkah.

NEW JERUSALEM CONNECTION TO THE MESSIAH

nj-rainbow-foundation

The 144,000 Virgin Bride is the “firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb… who follow the Lamb wherever He goes” (Revelation 14:4). The perfect resurrection of the Messiah’s Body will inaugurate the Age of the Bride of Christ… the Age of the New Jerusalem… the Age of the Perfect One New Man in the Messiah – Metatron. Think of Metatron being the literal fullness of the Messiah.

Who will initially participate in the perfect resurrection of the Messiah’s Body? The FirstFruits Bridal Company who will inherit the Kingdom of God, because they have chosen to die to this world completely laying down all works of the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21).

The first Anti-Christ (Antiochus Epiphanes IV) celebrated Christmas, before it was called “Christmas.” He placed a Greek sun god idol on God’s Altar; and then, sacrificed a pig on it. Jesus celebrated the antithesis. Scripture reveals that Yeshua celebrated The Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) in John 10:22-23. Jesus celebrated the overthrow of the defilement of Christmas on God’s Altar (i.e., our hearts).

Christmas had two immediate predecessors in the fourth-century when it got assimilated into the Church:

[1] The immediate predecessor for Christmas Day was Mithra’s Winter Festival. The Catholic Encyclopedia admits that: The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun (Mithra’s Winter Festival) has strong claim on the responsibility for our December 25th date. Mithra was a Persian sun god adopted by the Roman Legion; but more importantly, we should note that the false Metatron figure is Metatron Mithra.

[2] The immediate predecessor for the Christmas Season was the Roman Saturnalia, which is also called the Yuletide Season. Not only was the Saturnalia a season of extreme excess in all carnal indulgences, it’s also the worship of Saturn. When Aaron tried to depict the divinity of the Most High God as a golden calf, he looked back to Egypt to the calf that represented the divinity of the ancient Chaldean (Babylonian) god – Saturn – who also anciently connects to the Black Cube that endeavors to control time and space.

It’s not a coincidence that the Messiah in His fullness (Completely Mature Head of Yeshua with His Completely Mature Body) is called Metatron, and Metatron is the keeper of time. Actually, Metatron Messiah is the keeper of space-time.

Believers will either choose to come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas to become a precious part of His Pure and Spotless Bride, or not. If you choose to keep Christmas, know that you are choosing to connect to a false Messiah – Mithra – as well as choosing to connect to the Black Cube, which symbolizes the Satanic control of space-time.

When believers choose to connect to the true Messiah through your actions, many things in this world grow strangely dim, including the tinsel of Christmas. Know that the pure and spotless Bride of Christ, who is one with her Beloved Bridegroom Yeshua, is the essence of the New Jerusalem. Devout ones will connect to the Messiah Yeshua Metatron and the crystal clear golden cube of the New Jerusalem.

Choose this day the Golden Cube or the Black Cube. Choose this day the True Messiah Metatron Yeshua or the False Messiah Meta-tron Mithra. “I call heaven and earth to bear witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19 Aramaic).

GIVING THANKS FOR MIRACLES

The Intersection of Thanksgiving and Chanukah

HOLID_05

With my husband being a descendant of three families from the Mayflower, it is no surprise that Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. Then to top it off with Chanukah! Well… Talk about divine!!!

Just as Chanukah is a festival commemorating a miraculous eight day supply of oil, so is Thanksgiving a feast that came about by miracles. Let’s first quickly visit the miracle of Chanukah, then take a brief tour of the Pilgrims.

Pull up a chair. Let me tell you about a ban of radicals who overcame overwhelming odds to preserve their culture and religion from utter annihilation. Had Judah the Maccabee and a very small remnant not taken their courageous stand against the Antichrist (Antiochus Epiphanes IV), both Judaism and Christianity most likely would not exist today. Not only does Chanukah celebrate God’s people military victory by a small ragtag righteous remnant, but the miraculous provision of oil needed to light God’s Temple so they could clean it out and rededicate it to the Lord.

When the Maccabees stormed Jerusalem and its Temple, they found one flask of pure oil which still bore the unbroken seal of the High Priest in God’s Temple, as they sifted through the devastation. With no windows and eight days needed to make the purest oil, they took a gigantic step of faith when they lit the oil to begin to purify the Temple. Their faith was meet by the All-Sufficient God, who miraculously extended the oil to last eight days, not one. This is the reason we are given that the Feast of Dedication and Lights (Chanukah) is celebrated for eight days. Hum… Could the miraculous supply of oil and cleansing of God’s Temple be related to the parable of the five prepared virgins that have their lamps full when the Bridegroom comes (Matthew 25:1-13)?

The Pilgrims would not have been accused of being wise their first year in the New World. Forty-five of the 102 Mayflower colonists died the first winter due to disease, lack of food, and general conditions on board ship in the Cape Cod area.

The Pilgrims that came to America in 1620 were nonconformists refusing to accept an authority beyond the revealed Word of God as well as insisting on the freedom to have one-on-one communication with God. With the Pilgrims, this translated to an egalitarian mode – the removal of inequalities among people. They were a logical fruit of the Reformation and the key to life for them was God’s written instructions in the Bible. Both the Pilgrims and Puritans sought to bring the church into a state of purity that matched, and even succeeded, faith as it had been in the time of Christ (Messiah). Their great hope in the King of Kings and the gospel of the Kingdom of God was what allowed any of them to survive. Miracles abounded.

Divine intervention was the name of the game in the harsh winter of 1620-21. Nearly out of food, they rationed five kernels of corn a day. Most of the mothers perished, because they gave their portions to their starving children. Though their suffering was intense, God’s hand was on them.

The first miracle was their blunder of missing the Hudson River, which caused them to suffer so greatly in Cape Cod, but it had actually saved them from being ambushed by a tribe that probably would have killed them.

The second miracle: When they emerged from the ship in the Spring, they desperately needed a large, plowed field, but they couldn’t fit plows on the Mayflower. They found three acres of plowed farmland that had been abandoned by the natives on the heights above Plymouth Rock.

The third miracle: An English speaking Native American named Samoset who walked up to the settlers and asked for some beer. Samoset then took them to meet the young brave Squanto who had been taken captive by Englishmen and escaped. When Squanto returned to the New World, the friendly chief of the Wampanoag tribe – Massasoit – living next to Plymouth took him in. Squanto taught the Pilgrims to grow maize (corn), which was a God-send because the wheat, rye and barley that they’d brought would not have taken to sandy soil.

The next fall, the crop thrived enough that the remaining Pilgrims decided to celebrate not only surviving, but thriving with their new found friends. When they invited Massasoit and his immediate family to come to a feast, little did they know that to the natives, family was 99 braves. Good thing that the Wampanoag tribe was so generous. They brought venison and wild turkey to share side-by-side, as one.

At the heart of Thanksgiving is the gratefulness everyone shared, as William Bradford put five kernels of corn on everybody’s plate. He then asked everyone there to tell of five things that they were thankful for that first year in Plymouth… and that my friends is considered our first Thanksgiving in America. Gratefulness was a deeply ingrained value, because they were grounded and founded in God’s Word.

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 2:

“Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning” (Exodus 27:20 NIV)

The Golden Lampstand in God’s Temple was only fed by the purest of olive oil. In fact, the oil that lit the Temple Menorah had to be pressed, not crushed. Do you feel hard pressed at times? Remember that that the Lord disciplines the ones He loves. To even harvest the olives, their trees must be battered with sticks. Then the olives are pressed or squeezed, depending on its use.

The oil for God’s Light had to be absolutely pure from the start; therefore, the oil was made meticulously by pressing each olive gently until one drop of pure oil emerged. What a picture of the care the Lord our God takes in our lives!

Exodus 27:20 says that the Golden Lampstand is to be lit continually. It was continual in the sense that it was kindled every single day without exception, being lit from evening until morning. Another fascinating fact about the very intricate Golden Lampstand is that it was made from one solid gold ingot. This was not just an average gold ingot, but a 125-pounder, which was supposed to represent indivisibility. It speaks of a person having one set of values – and only one – where all areas of your life must derive from the same set of values. Everything on and in the menorah had to be hammered out of the gold ingot, including the almond bud and blossom lamps. Nothing could be made separately, nothing. It would have been easier to make the pieces of the menorah separately, and then attach them; but God absolutely forbid His Temple Menorah to made in a piece mill fashion. You and all of mankind has been made in God’s own image (Genesis 1:26). Even though God perfectly made us as He designed and desires we are still bring formed into the image of the Son. Take heart everyone. The Bible tells us, “But He knows the way I take; when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold” (Job 23:10 NASB).

THINK ABOUT IT: Please select the participation questions that best suit you (or there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):

[1] Give five things that you are thankful for this past year.

[2] Discuss the making of the purest oil and how this relates to you.

[3] Do you ever wonder why God is taking His own sweet time in your difficult circumstance? Do you ever feel like He is meticulously pressing out one drop of pure anointing oil out of you? Please share.
