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.

YOM TERUAH'S TRANSITION FROM PEASANTS TO KINGS

YOM TERUAH'S TRANSITION FROM PEASANTS TO KINGS

Chag Sameach Yom Teruah (Happy Feast of Trumpets) Everyone from Marion Camp! 
 
Today was an absolute gorgeous day and the sun was shining beautifully all day. I slept in today and then prepared for our 2:30 service. It was just me and Juan. We had a great feast and topped it off with a homemade Butterfinger cheesecake that a guy makes here at the camp; it's as good as anything I've had at any restaurant! Then we dove into Genesis 21 and talked about the story of Isaac being weaned and then shot over to 1 Samuel 1 and discussed the birth of Samuel and him being dedicated after he was weaned. Then I made the connection for him that both Isaac and Samuel, two incredible men of Yahweh, were dedicated to God after they were weaned and their whole lives changed after that moment. For Isaac, there was a great celebration in his name to commemorate the event and then Ishmael was removed from his house. For Samuel, he was brought to the Temple by Hannah and his ministry as a prophet of Israel began. In both scenarios, there was a tremendous transition that happened after the time of weaning.
