Understanding the Modern Hanukkah Miracle ✡ "'Holy' Will Be Said of Him" - JERUSALEM365

Of every remnant that will be in Zion and every remaining one on Jerusalem, 'Holy' will be said of him.

ISAIAH (4:3)

וְהָיָה הַנִּשְׁאָר בְּצִיּוֹן וְהַנּוֹתָר בִּירוּשָׁלִַם קָדוֹשׁ יֵאָמֶר לוֹ

ישעיהו ד:ג


v'-ha-ya ha-nish-ar b'-tzee-yon v'-ha-no-tar bee-ru-sha-la-yeem ka-dosh
yay-a-mer lo

Jerusalem Inspiration

According to Israel’s first chief rabbi, the great Abraham Isaac Kook, the world is divided into two distinct realms. Not 'good and evil,' but rather, the 'holy and the not-yet-holy.' Our job in this world is not to abstain from the realities of the physical world, but rather to uplift and to redeem by bringing out the full potential of the not-yet-holy.  The battle waged by the Maccabees was not fought in the name of power, but for the sake of imbuing a lost sense of holiness to the people and the Holy Temple.  A new DVD, "Reclaiming the Real Hanukkah" by Pastor Keith Johnson, is a documentary about the modern significance of Hanukkah. Let the call of the ancient Maccabees be heard again!

Menorah vs. "Hanukiah" Explained

Did you know that the Menorah which was lit in Temple times was different from the modern day "Hanukiah" which is used on Hanukkah?

Pastor Keith Johnson's Israel Documentary on Hanukkah

Pastor Keith Johnson's new documentary set in Israel is timely in light of new Hanukkah archeological discoveries and the world's sudden focus on the Temple Mount, central to the events of the Hanukkah story.

Jerusalem Daily Photo

Today's photo shows people immersed in holy prayer at the Western Wall with a fantastic Menorah in the foreground. On each night of Hanukkah, the Menorah at the Western Wall will be lit by various Rabbis and dignitaries.

Yesterday's Photo Trivia

Yesterday's photo showed the topography and ascension to the Old City of Jerusalem, bringing to life the words of the Bible, as it says: "Arise! Let us ascend to Zion."

Is Russia the New Boss in Town?

Monday, November 30, 2015 |  Israel Today Staff
Obama’s policy is to turn enemies into friends. He believes that once radicals take power or are given legitimacy, they turn into moderates. This expectation isn’t supported by historical trends, as moderation didn’t occur in Iran, Afghanistan, Gaza or Lebanon.

5 Reasons You Shouldn't Cohabitate Before Marriage - ALLPRODAD.COM STAFF CHARISMA MAGAZINE

After living together before marriage, the odds of staying together decrease significantly. (Stock Free Images)

5 Reasons You Shouldn't Cohabitate Before Marriage





Are you single or dating someone you think may be the one? Or do you have kids who are dating and may be thinking wedding bells at some point?
If so, you may want to consider the importance of marrying before moving in together or of teaching your kids about the pitfalls of shacking up.
More and more couples are choosing to move in together before marriage. One reason is to save on rent. Yes, saving on rent. Saving on rent is not, and should not be, a reason to live with someone who may or may not become your spouse. In fact, it is a really bad reason. Below are five reasons shacking up is a bad idea:
1. No blessings from God. The Bible considers shacking up the opposite of a legitimate marriage. A legitimate marriage consists of a union between a man and woman who have made a covenant and commitment. Shacking up involves neither. Marriage was a union created by God and is a union God blesses.
2. Your relationship will probably end. An article on examiner.com states that 80 percent of shacking-up relationships end before marriage or in divorce after marriage. So, it is 80/20 against you getting married or staying married to that person. One reason is because there is not a commitment when you move in before marriage. A relationship without commitment will not last, and marriage is the biggest commitment you can make in life.

3. Your children will be negatively affected. To the parents who have children, your kids are three times as likely to be expelled from school or get pregnant, five times more likely to live in poverty, and 22 times more likely to be incarcerated—all because you choose to live with someone you're not married to.
4. It makes you lazy. As a married man, I know that once dating ends, the relationship changes. Living together removes the "being your best" part of your relationship. Kind of like most job interviews—you wore the suit to the interview, but once hired, you show up in khakis and a polo. And if you're living with a woman and getting some of the "benefits" of marriage—sex, having someone to help around the house, sharing the bills—you can also get lazy about taking the next step in your relationship.
5. Saving on rent. Mentioned above.

When Jesus Gave a Woman the Desire of Her Heart - LAURA-LYNN TYLER THOMPSON CHARISMA MAGAZINE

Here's why Jesus told a woman, 'Let it be as you desire.'

When Jesus Gave a Woman the Desire of Her Heart

11/27/2015 LAURA-LYNN TYLER THOMPSON charisma magazine
Spirit-Led Woman
"Let it be as you desire" (Matthew 15:28).
These were Jesus' final words, which set this despairing woman's critical issue free with one sentence from His lips. However, it took a journey to get there. What did it take for the woman in Matthew 15 to get that kind of response from Jesus? If He were to speak those words to the crisis you face today ... it would be life changing? ... How did she get Jesus to intervene with a miracle?
1. She relentlessly cried out for mercy in verse 22, asking Him to heal the issue.Her need was great, her daughter was demon possessed and all earthly attempts to fix her were not working. This mother's soul was in agony. She no longer cared about her position, her reputation, and her appearance as a woman "put together." Her house was a mess and she needed Jesus to remedy this or there was no hope ... She was poor in spirit, bankrupt of her own solutions; it was Jesus or nothing.
2. Jesus did not respond, in fact it says, "He said not a word." Sometimes Jesus does not answer on our timetable. He is silent. We wonder why? It did not stop her from continuing her desperate plea for a God-sized miracle even when the disciples looked upon her with disdain and wanted her to stop. Others may not see why you cry out day and night ... it is not their burden, it is your personal torment. You alone approach the Father with your distress. She did not count their dismissive ways as significant. ... they were not Jesus, she only needed His attention.
3. She came and worshipped Him in Matt. 15:25. She knew who He was. She had heard He healed the sick, raised the dead, and did what no man on earth had ever done—performed wonders in impossible circumstances—her last hope. She asked Jesus in a posture of surrender, "Lord help me".
4. She showed great humility when Jesus appeared to be unwilling to help her need. First He did not answer her and then He appeared to diminish her position as she was not of the "right" tribe. She said, "... even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their master's table." She was beyond considering herself on Jesus level or those He appeared to associate with. She accepted a lower standing. If she once thought her family had it together, she knew that the horrendous outcries of her possessed daughter let the entire community know, they were dysfunctional, broken, shattered—in desperate need. She accepted a lowly place; she would be content with crumbs. This is when the most incredible miracle in her life took place ... from humility, desperation, brokenness and shame ...
Matthew 15:28
Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
May your faith be so great in spite of what it looks like, what you feel like, how others treat you, that Jesus' eye turns your way and with the kindness and abundance of heaven says to you.
"Let it be as you desire." So be it, in Jesus name, to your situation today.

Something nice came my way - a word of encouragement received.


Nov. 30, 2015


Greetings.

On occasion I will receive a note or two - through FaceBook, email, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn - that seems to bring special encouragement to me.

It certainly helps when another one shares such a word - to keep pressing on, doing what we do. Although we don't see or hear often what fruit results from our labor of love, in time we shall know all. But we can appreciate what does come along the way!

I share this one such note below. It certainly encouraged me.

Thank you Mary Louise!

Love For His People

P.S. Someday the Lord will release me from my full time accounting job to give all attention to the ministry of Love For His People. Yeah!!


"God Bless you Steve and keep you. You have no idea how many of my friends are enjoying the geographical and spiritual journal you take us on as you post. I know that some of my relatives might be a little testing at times; but I have notices they are not a bad as they were. That's what I wanted on my Facebook page and I am glad my Godbrother through his Facebook page brought you in my life. One day I hope to meet you and your beautiful family."

"Keys of Strategy Are Turning Concern to Confirm" and "A 2016 Word For Your Family!" Lana Vawser, Brisbane, Australia - The Elijah List


On a recent morning the Lord was showing me "keys of strategy" that He is releasing through prayer. This is the second or third time this year that the Lord has shown me these keys. When I asked the Lord why He was showing me again, He began showing me many who were feeling "stuck," that they have tried "so many different avenues" and nothing has seemed to break open and highlight the way forward.
As the Lord was releasing these "keys of strategy," I saw many with a very shocked look on their faces. It wasn't what they expected, and as the Lord handed them the key, He smiled and spoke, "This key is going to bring about a 'great rearrange', but keep moving forward, for the Great Rearrange is moving you onto a new page."
These keys of strategy, even though they may not "look like" what you expected, are actually going to lead you into a huge new beginning. They are actually unlocking the "shift of season." 
(Photo by Lillis Boyer "Springs of Life Key" via elijahshopper.com)
The Lord then spoke again, "I am going to turn'concern to confirm'. Where many are concerned about these keys of strategy because they are so 'out of left field,' I am going to begin bringingsupernatural confirmation – confirmation in a way that only I could confirm. These keys may not be what you expect, but they are going toresurrect things of old and implement things of the new. Double portion for you."
Trust Him with the key He has given you. Stay prayerful and watch and see the radical, fun confirmation He is going to release to you to turn your concern into confirm.

"I Am the Key for Your Family"
In a vision I was walking past many houses, and these houses were lit up with the glory of God. But, as I walked past many of the houses, I could hear sobbing – a deep sobbing – coming from inside the houses. Instantly I knew that these houses represented families in the Kingdom; there were many crying out for a "strategy" to bring healing, breakthrough, freedom, and restoration to their families.
In this vision Jesus was standing next to me and, with such sadness and tears in His eyes, He spoke, "Many families are feeling like they have been left in ruins by the enemy's schemes and the brokenness that he has brought upon them. 
I have heard every prayer, I have caught every tear, and now I am coming to repairrebuild, and restore to better than before – a divine turnaround in family!" I could feel the heartache in His heart for the pain, sorrow, loss, and betrayal many families have faced, but I could also feel the hope of what was to come. (Photo via Pixabay)
Suddenly, the Lord spoke these words that He had spoke to me in my dream at the start of the week, again:
"I am moving in as the Kinsman Redeemer."
I saw Him moving into houses that were crying out to Him for healing, for restoration, for deliverances, for freedom, for rebuilding and restoration. As He moved through room after room, person after person, I saw Him pull out scrolls, and they contained all the prayers prayed concerning families and family members.
He ministered individually and corporately in these houses, leading many in prayers to forgive one another, removing trauma, imparting vision and hope for the future concerning the family unit through sharing the dreams in His heart for them. Some rooms He moved into He closed the door, and I could not see what He was doing, but I knew it was a deep, private, beautiful moment with many. He was going into places in the heart that many within families were so afraid for other family members or anyone to see.
2016: A Year of Prodigals Coming Home and Family Restoration!
As He walked out of one house, the sobbing turned to loud laughter. He turned and looked at me, and with a smile and tears in His eyes, He began to share His heart:
"Joy will return to many homes again.Laughter and honor are being restored. The time for unprecedented miracles infamilies has arrived." 
(Photo by Jennifer Page "His Joy" via elijahshopper.com)
"Next year, 2016 will be a year of many prodigals coming home!"
He then began to share with me how He is doing a deep work in families right now and it is going to hit a point of acceleration and increase next year. Next year will be a year of greater restoration of family! 
One of the waves of revival to be poured out across the earth is going to be released in unprecedented ways through the testimony of the restoration of the family units.

Judah will exist forever, and Jerusalem from
generation to generation.

JOEL (4:20)

וִיהוּדָה לְעוֹלָם תֵּשֵׁב וִירוּשָׁלִַם לְדוֹר וָדוֹר

יואל ד:כ

v'-yi-hu-da l'-o-lam tay-shayv v'-yi-ru-sha-la-yim l'-dor va-dor


Today's Israel Inspiration

Judah was Jacob's fourth son and when the land was divided amongst the Tribes of Israel, Judah received the vast area of land south of Jerusalem extending from the Dead Sea in the east to the Mediterranean in the west. For centuries, this area was known as the Region of Judah, or Judea. Today, many people seek to sever the Jewish people from Judea, the Biblical Heartland of the Jewish People, with the BDS (boycott, divest and sanction Israel) movement. But God promised through His prophet Joel, that Judah would exist forever. As one of our readers expressed so perfectly: "BDS is like boycotting God's blessings!"

Hi guys, I’m from Canada, a small province on the eastern coast called Newfoundland. I enjoy reading your headlines every chance I get. But at the same time sometimes I am deeply troubled by all the acts of violence that takes place over there and all around the world towards the Jewish people. I stand up for the Jewish people and Israel and hope the new liberal government just elected here in Canada does the same. God bless you and your organization for all you do. Rudy
