Some of us will want to observe Hanukkah as a Holy Celebration and some of us won’t.
Don’t judge the other please!
This year Hanukkah starts here in this country on December 7, 2023 at sundown and goes through December 15, at sundown.
If you will open this link you will see my most simple observance on the first night last year. A son in The LORD was present with me.
The Spirit of the living God was so very real in my living room!
Some Christians will debate whether to even celebrate Hanukkah or not.
Some will debate over the spelling of it.
Some of us do all the traditions associated with Hanukkah, and some of us just don’t.
My menorah is very small and may not even be a traditional one.
Still as Jon and I gathered together to worship and light the first candle, the Presence of The LORD was so very real.
We started with the song, “I Speak Jesus.”
(By the way, Jesus still answers to that Name!)
Then you can see Jon briefly finding a good shofar sound to blow on YouTube.
Then we concluded with the song, “The Goodness of God.”
Maybe too simple for some but straight from my heart and home to yours.
If you observe and keep any of the Jewish Holy-days, do it always from New Testament perspective.
Don’t get caught up in bondage either way.
God bless you all.
