GOLDEN GATE OF MIRACLES

Golden Gate New Jerusalem
An Ancient Golden Gate of Thanksgiving and Awe has been prepared for this special season of lights, miracles and dedicating our temples to walk as Yeshua (Jesus) did. For those who choose to enter into Chanukah, there’s a greater grace given to become one with Him, as His pure and spotless Bride, as well as it being a door to a life that’s full of signs, wonders and miracles. If you need a creative miracle, it can be found in the Winter One-dear-land where Yeshua walked in Solomon’s Colonnade.

The name “Feast of Miracles” is another term for Chanukah. When anyone asks why a Christian would celebrate Chanukah, the simplest and most direct answer is that Yeshua did. “Jesus gave them this answer: ‘I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself; he can do only what He sees His Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does’” (John 5:19). So when Yeshua celebrated Chanukah on earth, significantly, His Heavenly Father participated also. Stop and really think about that. Our precious Heavenly Father not only approved of Chanukah, but joined in the festivities. In fact, the days of Chanukah were designated as festivals of praise and thanksgiving, because the His people recognized the annual return of the same kind of spiritual force that resulted in the original miracle.

The only direct reference to Chanukah in Scripture is John 10:22-23: “Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon’s Colonnade.” Not only is Chanukah called the Feast of Miracles, but it’s also called the Feast of Lights and Feast of Dedication. Today, we are zeroing in on MIRACLES.

Jesus walked in Solomon’s Colonnade during the feast of Chanukah declaring His miraculous works plainly revealed that He was the Messiah. Israel’s priests had previously concluded that when they heard the testimony of someone being healed of the incurable disease of leprosy, it would be an obvious sign of the Messiah… that He had come. And not only that, but the Messiah would also restore the sight of someone born blind. The lame born lame would walk. When John the Baptist asked Jesus: Are you the One? Yeshua sent back the message: Tell John the blind see, the leper is cleansed, the lame walk and the captives are set free (Matthew 11:4-5). These and even greater works believers are still called to do.

How many of these miracles happen today? How many have you personally seen? DID YOU KNOW THAT THE CHURCH, UNIVERSALLY, WAS A SUPERNATURAL COMMUNITY PRIOR TO THE PAGAN FEAST BEING INTEGRATED INTO THE CHURCH’S CALENDAR? We’ll go into how the assimilation of pagan feasts mixed the holy with the profane in God’s eyes and moved His manifest dwelling presence (evidenced by miracles) from His Sanctuary in a future post. For now, simply note that the first recorded evidence of Christmas actually taking place on December 25th isn’t found until the time of Constantine in 336 A.D.

For the first 300 years, nothing resembling Christmas existed in the Christian Church’s calendar. The Church followed the pattern established by the apostles. They experienced a life and a power the world could not comprehend. Christ’s Church, in its primal form, celebrated the Lord’s Feasts. Daily, even several times a day, miracles occurred. Jesus set precedence when He walked in Solomon’s Colonnade during the Feast of Miracles declaring the miracles done by God’s kingdom had come upon them.

Significantly, Solomon’s Colonnade was not only the place associated with miracles, but it was also the place ALL the believers met (Acts 5:12). It’s the place where His apostles performed many miracles, signs, and wonders among the people (Acts 3:11); but one might miss this fact, because Solomon’s Colonnade was on the east side of God’s Temple and sometimes the writers of Scripture referred to the Eastern Gate instead of Solomon’s Colonnade. Just like Chanukah, the Eastern Gate of Jerusalem has three names: [1] Eastern Gate, [2] Beautiful Gate, and [3] Golden Gate. This is the place where Yeshua returns: “For just as the lightning come from the east, and flashes even to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be (Matt. 24:27 NASB). I believe this is a picture for us now spiritually with a future physical manifestation of Yeshua returning as well.

Recall that there’s a flaming sword, which turns every which way, to keep the way to the Tree of Life (Gen. 3:24). The flame of the sword alludes to lightning coming from the east and from His throne (Rev. 4:5). This flaming sword is the All-Consuming Fire who’s name is the Word of God that is truly able to as judge the thoughts and intents of our heart (Heb. 4:12).

Now is the time to open up our ancient golden gates, so the King of Glory can come in (Psa. 24:7). This is the Kingdom Day to worship God His way. This is the Kingdom Day where His set apart people will cleanse their temples, and will operate in signs, wonders and miracles as a result. God’s people need to first deal with the mixture that was brought into the church that cut it off from its holy and pure connection to its power supply. If you want to be part of His pure and spotless Bride and operate in her naturally supernatural state, you will have to pass through His gateway of awe that rids us of all mixture in His sight.

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 4:

Yeshua walked in Solomon’s Colonnade during the Feast of Miracles declaring the miracles done by God’s kingdom had come upon them. All the passages that speak of Solomon’s Colonnade tell us it’s a place of miracles and where all believers met.

Solomon’s Colonnade is also called Solomon’s Porch. It was built by Solomon on the east side of the temple. From this side, the glory is supposed to fill God’s temple. A porch or portico is a covered area adjoining an entrance to a building and usually has a separate roof. Spiritually speaking, it represents the place where a believer already has entered the temple (i.e., a relationship with God), but not the building (i.e., become a permanent dwelling place for God). I believe that the celebration of Chanukah holds several keys for end-time believers.

Chanukah is celebrated in winter when things look asleep, just as all ten virgins in Matthew 25 were asleep because “the Bridegroom was a long time in coming” (Matt. 25:5). By the way, both the wise and foolish virgins are representative of believers.

DISCUSSION: Please select how you’d like to involve others (there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):

[1] Discuss what it means to walk with Yeshua in Solomon’s Colonnade in the winter.

[2] How would you like to see miracles manifest through Christ in you?

[3] What are your thought about Solomon’s Colonnade being the place where all believers meet?

ENTER HIS WINTER ONE-DEAR-LAND GATES WITH THANKSGIVING

Chanakah - Mom & Son Stars Chanukiah

At sundown tonight the Feast of Lights begins, with something unprecedented happening this year. Thanksgiving and Chanukah will coincide – an extremely rare event! The LORD is telling me that THERE IS A SPECIAL AND GREAT GRACE GIVEN THIS SEASON FOR GOD’S PEOPLE TO ENTER HIS WINTER ONE-DEAR-LAND GATES WITH THANKSGIVING (Psalm 100:4).

Winter One-der-land is a mystery, which God has held for such a time as this. We shall all be changed. We shall all be gathered together in ONE according to His grace (Eph 1:10). There are several doors by which our oneness will manifest. One of those doors opens at sundown tonight. A Winter One-der-land portal of oneness opens, and we all get to choose whether to enter this Kingdom reality, or not. A gateway of awe has been prepared for this special season of lights, miracles and dedicating our temples to walk as Jesus did. “Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon’s Colonnade” (John 10:22-23). Just as a reminder, we are told in 1 John 2:6 that the one who says he abides in God that person will walk in the same manner as Jesus walked.

Not only did Yeshua (Jesus) walk in Solomon’s Colonnade during the Feast of Dedication declaring His miraculous works are plainly revealed, but Acts 5:12 informs us that all the believers met together at Solomon’s Colonnade. Did you get that? ALL – every single believer – met on the east side of the temple – the location of Solomon’s Colonnade both physically and spiritually. BTW – Chanukah (HanukKah) has three additional names depicting its spiritual realities: the Feast of Dedication, Feast of Lights and the Feast of Miracles.

[2] WALKING IN A WINTER ONE-DEAR-LAND – http://wp.me/p158HG-gN .

Several people have told me that they’d like to enter His Winter One-Der-Land Gates with Thanksgiving this year, but they need a little assist. Without going into a lot of background (we will speak of these things as the 8 days of Chanukah progress), we are going to post a daily Chanukah Devotion for those who would like a little help as well as instructions on how to kindle the Chanukah candles.

Chanukah is not one of the seven “feasts of the Lord” specified in Leviticus 23, but one of the two winter feasts mentioned in the Bible. If we operate on the premise that the entire Bible is inspired by God (2 Tim. 3:16-17), we need to contemplate why these feasts are in God’s Word. The seven feasts are audio-visual displays of the prophetic reality of the Messiah’s first and second coming. These winter feasts depict the church’s journey to become His pure and spotless Bride.

Christian scholars have used Colossians 2:16-17 to rationalize why Christians no longer exclusively celebrate the Lord’s Feasts (Lev. 23:2). “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath Day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” Yeshua is the substance; but we must comprehend that a shadow always resembles its substance. When the Bible says it’s a shadow of things to come, it means that we will be answering to the Creator who is casting the shadow. BTW – There is no mixture in the Holy One of Israel.

Believers are not told not to celebrate the Lord’s feasts in Col. 2:16-17, but not to let anyone judge us with regard to them. Meaning we are not to criticize, censure, condemn, or punish people on how they celebrate a Biblical Feast. However, there is an assumption in the statement “Don’t let anyone judge you” that God’s people are already eating, drinking, and celebrating these things listed. It is similar to Matthew 6’s “when you pray,” “when you fast,” and “when you give to the needy.”

So with these things in mind, I will briefly share how my Christian family has celebrated Chanukah for the past 15 years. We keep it very simple. It’s mainly a time for coming to the Lord’s Table to connect to Him as well as with family and friends. We make as many special meals as we can with special linens, dishes, etc. Potluck is the order of the day when larger numbers get together. If we don’t have time to do a special meal, it’s just fine to dedicate our mac-n-cheese to Him 😉 The point is to connect to the One who still walks in Solomon’s Colonnade and still performs miracles in that place. We light candles, like our Jewish brethren, because there are some very deep and profound truths behind that as well as facilitating a particular One New Man in the Messiah oneness between Jews and Gentiles. After we light the candles and say a blessing over them, we read a short devotional and share our hearts. Then to top it all off we open small gifts. Our son was 5-years-old when we came out of Babylon and laid down Christmas, to become part of His pure and spotless Bride, so giving gifts is something we do. Do you have to? Definitely not. But with one of my love languages being gift giving, I really like it! That’s about it. Hope you enjoy today’s short, but sweet devotion. The Lord wanted me to recycle HAYAH. Try it! You’ll be amazed at the Winter One-der-land heavenly portal that will open! Have fun and give em heaven!!!

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 1:

In Exodus 3:14, we are told. God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” In the original Hebrew, it is commonly translated “I will be who I will be” – HAYAH. “Hayah” can be simplified into a righteous State of Being that resonates at the same frequency in which it was originally created.

“Hayah” is a unique verb. It carries a meaning in the past of what was done. It carries a meaning in the future of what will be done, but a presence tense does not exist for this verb. Instead, it is given that the verb “to be” is just there. It’s who you are, like “I Son” the “am” in “I am Son” is already understood to exist, and it manifests in what a person is actually doing. This is all of our present reality. Let it BE LOVE.

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

[1] What’s your present reality? What are you doing to show His Kingdom and His righteousness to those around you?

[2] What are some creative ideas to show others the I AM WHO I AM in you?

(This devotional was part of a previous post: LET YOUR “I AM WHO I AM” LOVE LIGHT SHINE! http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-gh .)
