How Do You Wait on The Lord? 

We had a packed house for Day 5 of our Hanukkah celebration. And what a blessed evening it was! A man from my 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 and said that it was “time to make a change and get right with God.” The light was very bright in the room; you could feel the Spirit in an almost tangible way.

On night four we did a quick review of the Hanukkah story and then dove into the story of Moses at the burning bush. I asked everyone who was talking. The Angel of God or Yahweh? Then I discussed the 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 took them back to a passage we’d read earlier when we discussed Abraham, in Genesis 18, where three “visitors” approached Abraham, one of whom declared himself Yahweh.

As we moved into night 3 of Hanukkah, we did a short review of the Hanukkah story and then dove into the ceremony.

As it came back to rest in front of me at the head table, I stood and took my position at the white board. Oh, how happy I am with a white board! 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.

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.
