Hanukkah 2018 in Prison: Part 5

HOW DO YOU WAIT ON THE LORD? 
 
Last night was day 5 of our Hanukkah celebration and we had a packed house. And what a blessed evening it was. Today, a man from my own hometown got radically saved and the Father is delivering him from his drug addictions as we speak. He gave his testimony in front of everyone in the room as he said that it was "time to make a change and get right with God." The light was very bright in the room last night and you could feel the Spirit in an almost tangible way.

Written by Jim Staley
On night four we did a quick review of the story of Hanukkah and then dove right into the story of Moses at the burning bush. I pointed out that the Angel of the LORD was talking but calls himself God. I asked everyone who was talking? The Angel or Yahweh? Then I showed this Angel of Light who speaks in the first person as Yahweh in several other places and it became clear that the Angel of LORD and Yahweh were, in fact, one and the same. I then took them back to a passage that we read yesterday when we discussed Abraham, where in Genesis 18 there were three "visitors" that approached Abraham, with one of them declaring himself as Yahweh. While two of the men (angels disguised as men) go to Sodom to retrieve Lot, the other man, who is called Yahweh, stands before Abraham and converses with him about the future of Sodom.

As we have moved into night 3 of Hanukkah, we did a short review of the story of Hanukkah and then dove right into the ceremony. I lit the Shamash candle and then I passed the Hanukkia around and each person lit a candle until all three were shining bright. As it came back to rest in front of me at the head table, I stood up and took my position up at the whiteboard (oh how happy I am with a whiteboard!...lol). I already talk with my hands, so I might as well have them doing something besides waving in the air! ;)

Hanukkah 2018: Day 2

The Light from Shechem and the Table of Shewbread 
 
We've been discussing many topics each night as we celebrate this amazingly prophetic and Yeshua-packed feast. One theme seems to be the connection of the Table of Shewbread to the shoulders of the High Priest and to Mts. Ebal and Gerezim in Shechem. I know. Strange combination. But follow me for a minute.

Written by Jim Staley

Last night was our first night of Hanukkah here at the Marion prison camp. It was a great time as we dug deep into the Word and began the process of rededicating our own temples once again during this year’s Festival of Lights. Along the way some cool revelations came that I would like to share through this series of posts.
