“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6).
The quintessential verse of the Feast of Miracles is Zechariah 4:6. With each Biblical Feast, a different portal opens in the heavens over the earth. How many of you know that eternal truths and realities are always available, but there are seasons when a greater grace is given by God for them to be realized?
The Lord’s Feasts are His occasions for celebrating, just as the Ten Commandments are His ordained commandments. God created us to celebrate Him His glorious and creative ways. Read the Gospels! Yeshua loved a party! His first miracle was at the wedding feast at Cana when He turned 180 gallons of water into fine wine (John 2:6).
The spring feasts of the Lord speak of Yeshua’s first coming. The fall feasts speak of Yeshua’s second coming. The winter feasts of Chanukah and Purim tell the story of the church and her journey until the Messiah comes again. Chanukah is not called a feast forever (like Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles, which are types and shadows of Yeshua’s ministry on earth). It’s a feast that celebrates the temporal walk of His church becoming the Bride.
What society has labeled “Jewish Feasts,” the Lord calls “the feasts of the Lord.” Significantly, He emphasizes: “They are MY feasts” (Lev. 23:2). They have been called Jewish Feasts because remnants of Jewish people have faithfully rehearsed the feasts of the Lord since they have been instituted. All believers in the first century celebrated the feasts of the Lord, including Chanukah and Purim. It is the Christian Church’s primordial practice. Yeshua Ha Machiach (Jesus Christ) and the early church continued to observe the feasts laid out in His Word, because they understood that they portray the Messiah. These observances were not done for righteousness’ sake, for the early church embraced Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross as the only way in which they could obtain their right standing in and before God.
Yesterday, we discussed that 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 did. Every year this Chanukah portal opens to a greater grace to become ONE with Him as His pure and spotless Bride. This year His Winter One-dear-land portal is not only resonating with awe, but with great grace. The number that speaks of great grace is “15” (5 x 5 x 5). It’s been 15 years, since Yeshua (Jesus) first came to me epiphanously. He was weeping as He told me: “The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart.” After He paused to let that bombshell sink in, He added: “Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, for I WILL have a pure and spotless Bride.” Please read: http://wp.me/p158HG-4E . THIS WILL BE KNOWN AS A YEAR OF GREAT MIRACLE-WORKING GRACE.
“Then he said to me, This addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees is the word of the Lord to Zerubabbel saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit of Whom the oil is a symbol, says the Lord of hosts. For who are you, O great mountain of human obstacles? Before Zerubbabel who with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was undertaking the rebuilding of the temple, before him you shall become a mere molehill! And he shall bring forth the finishing gable stone of the new temple with loud shouting of the people, crying, Grace, grace to it! (Zechariah 4:6-7 AMP).

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 5:
The audio-visual displays of the prophetic reality of the Messiah’s first and second coming (portrayed in the Biblical Feasts) can only serve to bring His people into a deeper relationship with one another and with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Aligning with His calendar enables us to know and understand the Lord’s exact times for the world and set appointments for mankind.
Mo-ed is the Hebrew word translated as “feasts” in the KJV of Leviticus 23:2: “Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are My feasts.” Technically, mo-ed is not the Hebrew word for feasts, but it carries the concept of calling God’s people together for His sacred assemblies, which celebrate the annual recurrence of particular dates marking notable events. To mo-ed is to have an appointment, a fixed time or season, a cycle or year, an assembly, an appointed time, a set time or exact time. According to Scripture, the Sabbaths sets our weeks. The New Moons sets our months. The Lord’s festivals set our years.
In 2 Chronicles 8:13, the primitive root for mo-ed is the Hebrew word ya-ad, which is also defined as fixing an appointment – like writing a critical meeting in your day-timer. But more importantly, this primitive root implies that the Lord is summoning His people to meet Him at His stated time, He is directing us into a certain position, and He is engaging us for marriage (i.e. be betroth). Just as mo-ed in space refers to the locality where mankind has their appointed place of assembly for an appointed purpose, so mo-ed in time is a point in time which summons God’s people communally to an appointed activity. As it is written: “As You summon to a feast day” (Lamentations 2:22). “We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near… You say, ‘I choose the appointed time” (Psalm 75:1-2). “Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals” (Isaiah 33:20). The question remains for Christians: If we aren’t celebrating the feasts of the Lord, can we truly be betrothed to Him?
DISCUSSION: Please select how you’d like to involve others (there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):
 What is the Spirit saying to you about the Feasts of the Lord (i.e. Biblical Feasts)?
 Is there a need for you to tap into His great miracle-working grace? If so, tap into this season of great grace when Yeshua walks in the place where all believers meet (i.e. Solomon’s Colonnade) declaring His miracles.
