Okay, I admit, it’s a strange title. How on earth could all three of those topics be connected? Well, as you are about to see, not only are they connected, they’re all related...blood related.
Before we talk about Christmas, let’s talk about a holiday that is far less known to the Christian world but is unparalleled in its relevance to the Christian faith and to the end times, as well: Hanukkah. Hanukkah is a holiday every Christian has heard of but knows very little about, other than that Jewish people celebrate it. Hanukkah is actually a Hebrew word that means “dedication.” The Feast of Dedication was also called the Festival of Lights. Why? Because the entire story revolves around the dedication of the temple and the renewing of the lights that were found on the candelabra itself. Let’s take a minute and go through the story of this amazing holiday so we can see how it relates to believers around the world who are living in these last days.
