December 16 - Hanukkah Celebration at 4:00pm

The saying at Hanukkah, “Nes Gadol Hayah Sham” — “A great miracle happened there” — is in reference to the Presence of God in His rededicated Temple. Yet, Messianic believers know that the fulfillment of the Hanukkah miracle was not that God’s Presence dwelt in a Temple built of stones, but that God’s Presence dwelt in human flesh in David’s Greater Son — Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel.
Now we can say with the deepest understanding “A GREAT MIRACLE HAPPENED THERE” — for God is now present among His people in a new Temple, which is the Messiah Himself.

Historically, the Maccabees rededicated the Temple and celebrated the Feast of Sukkot out of season. But there is one aspect of this ‘out of season Sukkot’ which is unique, the lighting of the Menorah. It was at the Feast of Sukkot that Yeshua said, “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.” Though great lights were burning on huge pedestals to completely enlighten Jerusalem on Sukkot, this feature has been lost to Sukkot, but retained in Hanukkah.
John 1:4 tells us that in Yeshua was life, and that it is the life of Yeshua which enlightens our own lives, that without Him we live out our lives in dark fear and striving against one another.

On the Menorah this symbolism is borne out beautifully. The Shammes, or servant candle, represents the light of Messiah. It is the ninth candle and represents God the Servant Messiah. When that great light touches our darkened lives, we become lights too, as Yeshua said to us, “YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.” He also said, in Matthew 5:14-16, to share that light, letting our lives shine before all people through the good we can do in His Name. Proclaiming Messiah to the Jew first and also to the Gentile is the reason we live and endure. We announce through the “Festival of Lights” that God is Present with us — IMMANUEL — Yeshua the Messiah of Israel.
Come and celebrate this joyous festival with us!
Hag Hanukkah Sameah!.
