The Feast of Dedication is here!
On the night of Sunday, December 18, the Feast of Chanukah began. This special feast will last for 8 days and will end on Monday, December 26.
While commonly known as Hanukah, it is also referred to as the Feast of Dedication or the Feast of Lights, as the word Chanukah means “dedication” in Hebrew. This feast is about lights, fights, miracles, and most importantly, the God of impossibilities.
After taking back the temple from a Greek invasion, the Maccabees found one flask of sanctified oil in the rubble. They used this oil to light the lampstand in the temple. This lamp stand looked something like a menorah.
They took the one flask, with enough oil to burn for only one day, and lit the menorah. However, God multiplied the oil, and the lamp miraculously burned for 8 days.
This amazing story is why Chanukah is called the feast of dedication and is celebrated with lights.

Most of all during the “Feast of Lights,” may our hearts be drawn closer to the love of Yeshua Jesus — The Light of the World.
