The Feast of Dedication – Hanukkah – is an annual eight-day celebration that celebrates the overthrow of pagan sun god worship in God’s Temple and the rededication of His Altar in Is-real. I am not minimizing this holiday’s application to Israel when I say Is-real, I’m trying to touch-on a specific point for everyone. Hanukkah is about purifying your body and your altar (i.e., heart), so you can be a part of His pure and spotless Bride.

During this celebration, I see those who have overcome overwhelming odds to take a righteous stand against the world-dominating force as “Maccabees.” The name “Maccabees” means hammer, like the instrument used to drive the nails into Yeshua’s hands and feet. I also personally see the Maccabee hammer as a gavel in a judge’s chamber that vibrates at the frequency of freedom.

Even though the eight day miracle of oil is suspect, the menorah (lampstand) itself is from God’s Temple; and since Hanukkah was known as the Feast of Lights in Yeshua’s Day, in my mind and spirit the custom of kindling a Hanukkah menorah passes God’s sniff test. We simply have to remember that the historical miracle it symbolizes is the eight day re-dedication of the Altar and the cleansing of His Temple. We can also celebrate the fact of Yeshua’s miracle of touching us who were born blind from birth about Christmas, but now we see. Having offered this Golden Calf as a burnt offering (which is a symbolic offering to the LORD that is burnt up in its entirety, so there is nothing to go back to), we go to the Pool of Siloam (Sent One) to wash our eyes. Now Hanukkah represents us ascending and descending in order to be sent out as blazing new wine into the world as the light of the world.

The main prophetic reading for Hanukkah is Zechariah 4:6 “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the Lord of hosts.” Instead of publicizing the menorah miracle, we are making known the altar miracle of the re-dedication of our hearts to worshiping the One True God, as He has prescribed in His Word. The Feast of Dedication is all about I AM being lifted up, so He can draw all men unto Himself (John 8:28).

Hanukkah is known as the Feast of Dedication (first and foremost), the Feast of Lights, and the Feast of Miracles. Many people celebrate Yeshua being conceived on Hanukkah, but since God chose to hide this fact, we should take note and simply celebrate the things that are made known to us and celebrate as Yeshua did. The sheep of the Good Shepherd’s pasture know His voice, and they will not celebrate another.

Please remember that Yeshua walks in Solomon’s Colonnade – the place where believers meet – during Hanukkah: “And it was Jerusalem the Feast of Dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the Temple in Solomon’s Porch” (John 10:22-23 KJV). On this note, I’d like to share the simple way my family celebrates Hanukkah.

The main focus of our Hanukkah celebration centers on lighting the Hanukkah menorah and having a festive meal with family and friends. I have found that every godly thing I loved about Christmas has a place in our Hanukkah celebrations without any stress or strain. The peace on earth sought by all men during Christmas actually resides in Biblical Feasts, including Hanukkah.


My family takes turns hosting a Hanukkah dinner. We have found it difficult to meet all eight days, so we gather together when we can. Even though we try to cook something special during this time, I remember having mac-n-cheese in remembrance of the Maccabees and our own struggle for freedom. It’s now an annual tradition in our home that my husband makes a prime rib one of the nights.

In an effort to keep things simple, I made Hanukkah meals the focus of my decorating skills. Fine linens, special plates, and napkin holders are the order of the days in our home. I always place our Hanukiah (Hanukkah menorah) in the center of our table. If you don’t have a Hanukiah, tea candles will work.

Personally, I like fresh flowers too. The rest of the dining area is decorated with signs and decorative cutouts I’ve collected. I have also gotten some special simple surprises at times for each place setting, like a piece of chocolate in the shape of the menorah. Plenty of candles are placed throughout the house.

We have given small gifts throughout the years, especially since we laid down Christmas when my son was five-years-old. My son has gotten used to his yearly supply of socks and pajamas with each being given on a separate night. I’ve notice that the gifts are getting much less frequent, and people don’t even seem to mind. Personally, one of my love languages is giving, so I really enjoy giving the perfect gift to someone; but we were also convicted about getting rid of materialism. I try to decorate with the cool colors of blue and purple with some white thrown in. We sometimes hang snowflakes in the front window, and have also hung white lights out side too, but in recent years we have not. Your creative imagination can guide you as you search to honor what was done during the Maccabean years, Yeshua’s years on earth and your own personal story of overcoming.


When we light the Hanukkah menorah, we “do” a devotion. In the “Blazing New Wine of Hanukkah” booklet, there is one set of devotions for Hanukkah. (It’s free via Kindle Unlimited. However, Amazon no longer allows me to sell the shorter paperback version; therefore, please contact if you are interested in purchasing a paperback copy.) Also, the “Let There Be Light! Hanukkah Meditations” book has eight unique sets of devotions. (Available at

My family kindles the Hanukkah lights for that night, and then we read the devotion and discuss it. Some of our best moments are the discussions and breaking bread together. It’s really all about Yeshua and His believers celebrating Him and one another.

When we kindle our Hanukkah menorah each night, we start with one candle on the right outermost edge from the one lighting the candle; and then, we add one candle each night. I don’t believe that we need to be religious about “how to” kindle the Hanukkah lights, the importance is that we light them in honor of Yeshua’s celebration of this holiday and us joining Him in it. My family likes to start from the right to the left, because that is how Hebrews read. I’ve heard of other people who start with all eight candles and decrease it each night. To each their own, but personally, I like my light symbolically increasing during the Feast of Re-dedication of my heart.

You will notice on a Hanukiah that there’s one candle holder that is either higher or set apart. You can simulate this with tea lights too. The set apart candle is called the shamash or servant candle. It’s symbolic of Yeshua not coming to be served but to serve as well as Him being literal The Light of the World that lights the other lights of the world (us):

“Whoever wishes to be first among you shall be the servant of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:44-45).

“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world’” (John 8:12; John 9:5).

On the first night of Hanukkah, after sundown, the shamash candle is lit, which in turn is used to kindle the first candle in the Menorah. The second night, we light the shamash again and use it to light the two right candles. This continues through the eight nights of the Hanukkah. You get the idea.

I hope this helps you to do what Yeshua (Jesus) did – celebrate Hanukkah – the rededication of your heart to the Most High God and the cleansing of your body!

DNA Golden

Did you know that the winter feasts in Scripture are audio-visual rehearsals for the Church becoming the Bride of Christ?

The Spring Feasts in the Bible portray the first coming of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). The Fall Feasts in the Bible portrays the second coming of the Messiah. And the winter feasts in the Bible (i.e., Hanukkah and Purim) portrays God’s people overcoming the things of this world to become one with the Messiah, as His Pure and Spotless Bride. This is a major reason why I say that the Feast of Dedication (i.e., Hanukkah) is part of His Winter One-Dear-Land as well as the Messiah Himself (our Beloved Bridegroom) is the One shown celebrating Hanukkah in scripture, along with all believers: “At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem; it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the Temple in Portico of Solomon” (John 10:22-23 NASB). Please refer to

Tomorrow at sundown, the heavenly door to the Feast of Dedication opens, which is an incredible Gateway of Awe where bridal restoration of one’s DNA is available to whosoever wills. With every feast that Jesus celebrated (and still celebrates) with His people, a new portal opens that makes a grace that’s always available more readily available and attainable. I encourage all of us to enter through His Gateway of Awe into His Winter One-Dear-Land of the Feast of Dedication this year, because it’s going to be a quantum leap!!! Always remember that it is the work of dedicating or re-dedicating one’s altar (i.e., heart) that enables the pure light of the Seventh Day to come forth =>

During the eight-days of the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah), there is a fiery open door for purification, which enables and accelerates the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek leading their own inner fire bride forth. This DNA Cleanse is only available through the Father’s Gateway of Awe by doing what Jesus did (John 10:22-23). I can testify to the veracity of this statement, because every year since 2014 I have personally experienced a divine acceleration in the cleansing of my own DNA during Hanukkah. Please refer to

When believers enter in by heartfelt faith to the kindling of the Hanukkah lights, a joy-filled Bridal Baptism of Fire happens, as we dial into His Presence. In fact, we experienced celebrating Hanukkah at the Messiah’s Table during a recent MM Group Ascension where we were shown that Hanukkah is a bridge to the Tree of Life. The Father values the Feast of Dedication so much that He’s has a Wall of Remembrance that’s an eternal record of every devout Hanukkah celebration. The lights from these Hanukkiah’s (special Hanukkah Menorahs) are reflected in the prism of this Wall of Remembrance; and if you focus in on one of the flames it takes you to the time, place and space where God’s people were honoring His Feast of Dedication =>

Today, I just want to encourage everyone who would like to take part in their own DNA Cleanse through entering His Gateway of Awe… the Hanukkah Portal in His Winter Won-Dear-Land. A Facebook friend asked me: How do I enter that portal? My answer is simple: Do what Jesus did. That’s the same answer that Yeshua gave me when I chose to come out of Babylon, lay down Christmas, so I could be part of His Pure and Spotless Bride. Please refer to Yeshua celebrated Hanukkah for eight-days, and so can we when we enter through childlike faith, great grace and simple heartfelt devotion to this holy and awe-filled of place.

I always tell people that great grace is required for our winter walk in God’s Temple. Always start where you are at. Perhaps, you are willing to look at it. Perhaps, you are wanting to step out and try it. Perhaps, you are ready to go for it. Wherever you are at, start from that genu-wine place. When Yeshua came to me with tears in His eyes and told me that the mixture of Christmas grieves His heart and after He asked me to come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, I had a simple heart cry: “Lord, I want to. Help me. Show me the way. My husband’s not ready for this. Give me, give us a way out.” His answer for me was very dramatic and very soon =>

Just speak your heart to the Lord of Love and ask for His assistance; then be prepared for Him to move heaven and earth for His Pure and Spotless Bride… Y-O-U. Many moons ago, I was getting very disappointed at always falling short of His unblemished bride mark. I told Yeshua my heart, and He told me: “Any person that’s doing the best they can do at any point in time is considered to be a bridal heart to Me.” That was sooooo freeing for me. I hope that it frees you up too.

My final note is not only do I recommend kindling the Hanukkah lights and reading a devotion each night (basic instructions are below), but I also highly recommend taking communion each night too. Ultimately, our DNA is changed through communing with Him.

Here’s to His Bridal Lights!!! L’Chaim (To life)!!!

light - immortality

What Bridal Hearts give up will be minor compared to what we will gain. One of the prizes of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus is immortality on earth, as it is in heaven: “For this corruption must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:53).

The door to immortality manifesting here on earth is Yeshua (Jesus) Himself. It is not a coincidence that Yeshua declares twice during the Feast of Dedication (i.e., Hanukkah) that I AM THE DOOR:

  • “Then Jesus said to them again, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, I AM THE DOOR of the sheep’” (John 10:7 NKJV).
  • “I AM THE DOOR. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture” (John 10:9 NKJV).

Yeshua also declares twice during Hanukkah I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD:

  • “I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep” (John 10:11 NKJV).
  • “I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own” (John 10:14 NKJV).

Then, incredibly, Yeshua declares twice during Hanukkah I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD:

  • “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12 NKJV).
  • “As long as I AM in the world, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD” (John 9:5 NKJV).

The Good Shepherd of our souls is dropping us some major hints about the door to returning to our primordial cherubic state, as sons of light; but we have to be willing to surrender all for Jesus to be able to see it and be it. Scientific studies bring to light that our DNA communicates with light and is created from light itself. Scientists are saying that light appears to be a fundamental part of our being. I would go as far to say that light is the original part of our being that has been created in the beginning in God’s own image – divine (Genesis 1:26). Please refer to

Since this is such cutting-edge revelation, which most Christians don’t have a grid for, please allow me to provide some foundational understanding. The passage from John 8:12 to John 10:42 reveals Yeshua’s works during Hanukkah. Biblically-speaking, Hanukkah is a celebration that is only written about in the New Testament. However, Daniel prophesied about Hanukkah in the Old Testament 300 years before the event took place while Hanukkah actually took place during the time period between the Old and New Testament. I find it extremely interesting that the history of Hanukkah has been preserved for us by the Gentiles (not the Jews) in the Apocrypha in the books of I Maccabees and II Maccabees.

I call Hanukkah a Biblical Feast, because it is in the Bible; but more importantly, it’s who celebrated Hanukkah. THE ONE WHO CELEBRATED HANUKKAH IN THE BIBLE IS THE MESSIAH HIMSELF. “Then came the Feast of Dedication [Hanukkah] at Jerusaelm, and it was winter, And Jesus was walking in the Temple in Solomon’s Porch” (John 10:22-23 Lamsa’s Aramaic).

When Yeshua celebrated Hanukkah in the Temple, He was fully aware of the events that Hanukkah commemorated. For more information in this regard, please check out: and  and

Moreover, Yeshua dropped massive hints, which is being revealed for such a time as this, on how we can properly align to the Truth that the Alef and Tav (Alpha and Omega) spoke during Hanukkah, so we can literally manifest this mortality putting on immortality.

Not only did Yeshua doubly declare “I am the Door,” “I am the Good Shepherd,” and “I am the Light of the World,” but there is a total of 13 “I AM” statements in the Hanukkah passage of Scripture. Twelve of those I AM statements are proclaimed by Yeshua before He walks in God’s Temple during Hanukkah, and one is after. Please refer to

Notice that “12” is the number for God’s government, but “13” is the number for God’s full government (Yeshua + 12 disciples). Before we celebrate Hanukkah, we can operate in the government of God that rests of His shoulders (Isaiah 9:6). But, it is only after we come into alignment with what Jesus did in celebrating Hanukkah that we will operate in the full government of God, which is in a word “Metatron” – the complete fullness of the Messiah. Significantly, the 13th I AM Statement of Yeshua is “I AM the Son of God” (John 10:36). Hebrews 7:3 tells us that those that are made after the Order of Melchizedek are made like unto the Son of God. The fullness of the Son of God is Metatron – the Oneness Metatron Matrix. Please see and

Yeshua is even now proclaiming: I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The Alef/Tav is even now broadcasting: I am the Door, the Good Shepherd and the Light of the World. The Almighty, is saying watch what I did on earth, and do the same; because I only do what I see the Father doing (John 5:19; Revelation 1:8).

Give em heaven!!!
