Happy Hanukkah dear readers!
Last night was the first night of the Feast of Dedication. As “gentile” Christians, we keep the focus on Jesus….as it should always be anyway. We prayed, thanking יהוה for the Light of Yeshua, His faithful provision and that His light might shine through us. Then we read the opening portion of John 1.
Do you observe Hanukkah?
The very name of God points to Yehoshua (Yeshua/Jesus). Some scholars say it is Yahweh, while others argue it is Jehovah. Anyway, God’s name is written as יהוה. Yod Hey Vav Hey. Every letter has a meaning. יהוה means, simply put, “Behold the hand, behold the nail”. Genesis 2:4 is the first time יהוה is used. Before sin ever entered the earth, the way of salvation was proclaimed within God’s own name.
Jerusalem has been proclaimed by President Trump as the capital of Israel. This has caused much turmoil among the surrounding nations to put it mildly. What I’ve seen in a vision today , however, was a walled city and there was a lot of dust being kicked up without the city. On each of the 4 corners of the walls surrounding the city I see an angel posted with a trumpet pressed to his lips waiting for orders to blow it.
Psalms 122:6 (NKJV Strong’s,)
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
