Hanukkah is the ‘Festival of Lights’, the Ingathering of the Symbolic 1000 points of Light which represents those Enlightened & Initiated into the Luciferian doctrine, The Magicians & Alchemists who have been Subconsciously Initiating you into the Mystery School Religion also known as Gnosticism & Gnostic Christianity.
December 21st, the Winter Solstice, through December 25th are the Highest Holy days of the Satanic Year, coinciding with Saturnalia and the celebration of the Death and Resurrection of the Sun god, the Mythology that in the Occult represents the Apotheosis of Man – through Enlightenment to godhood.
The Spells, Invocations & Rituals you are seeing worked all AROUND us is Chaos Magik, the Great Work that the Sages & Initiates of the Mystery Schools teachings of Babylon have dedicated themselves to rebuilding since Nimrod and the Tower of Babel fell.
The Illusion that is the Great Deception is almost complete. If you don’t know Jesus Christ & haven’t accepted Him into your heart by Faith the time to do so is NOW. Time is very literally almost up, seek Him while He may still be found & accept the Free Gift of Salvation through Him. He is the ONLY Way to the Father, He IS the Way, the Truth & the LIFE. He suffered and died to set you free of the illusion and the chains & consequences of your Sins, Death, both Spiritual & Physical. He rose again showing us that He IS LIFE & in following Him there is Life more abundantly, & at His soon Return a Life FREE of Sin, suffering & Death There is no. Other. Way.
Messianic Jewish and Hebrew Root false teachers are absolutely into it. They insist that we forsake Christmas and celebrate Chanukah to be a true covenant keeper … In a minute, you will see that it is a lie.
This holiday is also called the “Festival of Light” or “Festival of Rededication” … and, Chanukah is absolutely and purely a “Jewish (Kabbalah)” holiday, and has no biblical base or relation. None.
Chanukah is Not Biblical
No,it is not… and, every time I say this, some one would jump up and say …. “ Yes, it is biblical, because Jesus celebrated it in the New Testament!” … Not so fast, my dear …
I will be direct and simple.
There is NO command or precedent to celebrate such festival in the Old Testament.
It is one of the traditions of the elders, which Yeshua condemned (Mark 7), began in the second century BC (mentioned in the book of Maccabees).
The New Testament never says Yeshua celebrated it.
Here is the verse where it is mentioned:
John 10:22-23 (22) Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter. (23) And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon’s porch.
… and that is it. It is not mentioned anywhere else in the New Testament either. It seems to be a time stamp showing that it was in winter, and also shows that the Judeans were apostate, practicing a tradition of elders, which was not in the Law of Moses …. and this is all I am going to mention on this subject.
Menorah Tree of Life
Chanukah has no biblical connection … and, in addition … it involves overwhelming amount of the symbolism of Kabbalah. Undeniably, it is a Kabbalah holiday, … or may be … a Kabbalah version of Christmas.
As I showed much evidence in the article “What is Kabbalah?” the menorah of Judaism with seven candle holders is a symbol of the Tree of Life. Well … the Chanukah menorah, called chanukiah, has nine candle holders. I used to wonder why. How many candle holders does the biblical lampstand have … ? … Yes … seven.
Why does a chanukiah have nine candle holders, then?
Let us look into this chanukiah. You will see some compelling evidence that this symbol is another disguised Kabbalah symbol, which usurped a biblical item.
Now, the Jewish tradition says there is a reason and historic background for that … of course. It is supposed be based on a historical event. When the temple was destroyed due to the Revolt of the Maccabees (167 – 166 BC) against the occupying power of Antiochus Epiphanes IV (Reign: 175 – 164 BC) of the Seleucid Empire, the priests did not have enough holy oil to keep the lampstand lit. But, only one-day worth of the holy oil for the lampstand miraculously lasted for eight days, and Chanukah is supposed to be for commemorating and celebrating this miraculous event.
First, is it not abominable to change the form and specifications of the lamp stand, which was specifically commanded by YHVH in the Scripture? I believe it is a serious offense. Therefore, it is absolutely invalid, and has no biblical significance, does it? And, the nine-pronged menorah, chanukiah, is still invalid, even if the history and miracle they claimed to have occurred were true. It is a pure idol … an empty object.
So, you can see that admiring and lighting candles on this thing is an idol worship … correct? There is not much difference than “burning incense” to an inanimate god made of wood, is there? It is an abomination, and nothing else.
Please note: Even if it is a seven-pronged lamp stand, if you vainly worship it, it is an idol. In Judaic traditions and customs, we see many symbolized menorah with seven prongs. The biblical lampstand has many prophetic meanings, but it is not to be symbolized, or given different meanings, such as symbolizing it as a “tree.” It is still idolatry. After all, all the biblical items are there for prophetic purposes and meanings, and none of them should be idolized like this.
Then, why “nine” branches?
Here is what I believe to be the reason — Chanukiah is a Tree of Life in disguise.
I will show you why I believe so …
In a Kabbalah Tree of Life, there are ten sephirot (’sephirot’ is the plural form; ‘sephirah’ is singular). And, nine sephirot are above earth, and the tenth sephirah at the bottom, “Malkuth” (kingdom), which represents earthly realm or earth. And in a actual tree form, Malkuth is the “roots” part. Therefore, the nine candles (lights) of a chanukiah are representing nine sephirot (lights), and the base of the lampstand is representing the roots* of the tree, corresponding with the tenth sephirah, Malkuth, which is in the earth.
*By the way, this “roots” of the Tree of Life is where the Hebrew “Roots” comes from.
The following image may help you understand it better.
The kabbalist Jews desecrated the biblical lampstand by increasing the number of the candles to nine to match the number of the sephirot of the Kabbalah Tree of Life, using the base as the tenth sephirah, and worshiping it as an idol. They are worshiping the Tree of Life on Chanukah in the form of chanukiah, just as pagans worship the Tree of life in the form of Christmas Tree.
There are many examples of Tree of Life chanukiahs on the Pinterest Board, but I am posting a couple of them here as evidence.
And, this is the story behind the “shape” of the chanukiah.
But, there is more to it …
Kabbalah Eternal Flame
Now, there is another thing about the chanukiah that they love so much — They get to light the candle flames as the Kabbalah Eternal Flame. That is where the other name of Chanukah, the “Festival of Light,” comes from. The “flame” is another idol they adore so much.
When people see the image like the one you will see below, they tend to think of it as just a normal and insignificant candle flame. But, once you learn to recognize it, you begin to notice it in many places. If it is a single candle or a candle flame, it is most likely to be the Kabbalah symbol.
There are many variations of the Eternal Flame. The kabbalists go overboard with the flame in forms of candle light, ancient lamp light, flame, fire, Masonic torch, etc. and they are also discussed in the article, “What is Kabbalah?” They are also integrated into many false christian ministry logos and Web designs everywhere. Please take a minute to visit Pinterest Board on the Kabbalah Eternal Flame, and train your eyes. It is highly encouraged. We must be always alert and vigilant for such hidden symbolism.
The 25th Day
So far, we have looked at the Kabbalah aspect of Chanukah, and there is no question that Chanukah is a Kabbalah holiday that has no connection with the Bible.
But, I have noticed something else, which may further firmly connect this Kabbalah holiday with the pagan holiday of Saturnalia or the rebirth day of Tammuz, aka. Christmas, we discussed in the beginning.
Here is the “something” I have noticed — Chanukah is celebrated every year beginning on the 25th day of the month of Kislev (November – December), which coincides with winter solstice. Yes … WINTER SOLSTICE — Does this combination of the “25th day” and the “winter solstice” sound familiar to you? I am sure it does.
As it was established earlier, this holiday has no biblical background, and it is a Talmudic holiday. It means, it was “added” to the apostate Jewish tradition by the elders and written in Talmud as a holiday to keep.
Talmud “commands” to keep this holiday as following:
“On the 25th of Kislev are the days of Chanukkah, which are eight … these were appointed a Festival with Hallel [prayers of praise] and thanksgiving.” (Shabbat 21b, Babylonian Talmud)
This is a crucial point I would like you to take in — Talmud “appointed” a festival, therefore, it is a purely Talmudic festival. The Bible does not appoint any “festival,” or “festivity,” but the Bible, our Father, appoints the “Feasts of the LORD,” and the feasts are not festival. The Feasts are not festivities either. Festivals (festivities happen in festivals) are where the pagans celebrate or commemorate significant religious events or certain cosmic events, but the Feasts of the LORD are the appointed convocations mainly for prophetic meanings for the future. The term “festival” basically is a pagan holiday term.
Moreover, in another section of Talmud, it is clearly mentioned that Chanukah is celebrated in relation to winter solstice … unequivocally. They conveniently use Jewish calendar to Judaize it, but it is still on the “25th day” of the winter month … just about the time for the winter solstice, and it is not a coincidence.
This command is based on the creation account in the Kabbalah “book of creation,” called “Sefer Yetzirah.” The book tells an orally transmitted totally different version of the creation account, with tremendously more “added” details, than the Book of Genesis. It is basically a kabbalistic commentary book. And, based on this traditional story of creation, rabbis later decided that the Jews celebrate this holiday.
However, there is one thing I am curious about. Remember? .. The miraculous event during the Maccabee Revolt was said to be the reason for the festival of Chanukah, and the event occurred hundreds of years after the Babylonian exile. The Sefer Yetzirah was probably written during or after the Babylonian exile. So, which was the origin of the festival … ? Is Chanukah based on the creation account in the Sefer Yetzirah, meaning, it was supposed to have begun with the creation as it says, or it was based on the miracle of the oil lasting for eight days after the Maccabee Revolt in 160 BC? … still a mystery to me.
And, Here is a quote from the Babylonian Talmud, talking about the origin of Chanukah.
“Our Rabbis taught: When primitive Adam saw the day getting gradually shorter, he said, ‘Woe is me, perhaps because I have sinned, the world around me is being darkened and returning to its state of chaos and confusion; this then is the kind of death to which I have been sentenced from Heaven!’ So he began keeping an eight days’ fast. But as he observed the winter equinox and noted the day getting increasingly longer, he said, ‘This is the world’s course’, and he set forth to keep an eight days’ festivity. In the following year he appointed both as festivals.” (Abodah Zarah 8a, Babylonian Talmud*)
*“Babylonian Talmud” originates in Babylonian exilic period, and has been continually edited and added to by rabbis, and a popular English translated version,Schottenstein Edition, now consists of 73 encyclopedia-sized volumes.
This is the nature of Talmud teaching …. a rabbi decides what it is, and does not have a shred of truth to the Scripture … NONE. (For the truth about the account of Adam and Eve, please read the article, “Parable of Adam and Eve”)
And, the text continues to say the following …
“Now, he fixed them for the sake of Heaven, but the [heathens] appointed them for the sake of idolatry.” (ibid.)
What this sentence is basically saying is that Chanukah is a legitimate winter solstice holiday because Adam originated it to worship a true God (Heaven), but the way the heathens (pagans) worship winter equinox is an idolatry ….. my, my …. But, it appears to me that these rabbis who taught this was painfully aware of the “despicable” pagan celebration of the winter solstice, and making their vain effort to say that the Jewish way of worshiping this solar calendar event is kosher and sound. Well … but, doing so, they practically admitted and confirmed that they are celebrating the same non-biblical solar calendar event.
Again … this is what Talmud teaches, and this is Judaism … beware. No matter how and how much they make it sound like they worship YHVH our God, Messianic Jewish and Hebrew Roots false teachers are ultimately teaching the Talmud ideology, customs, and traditions, and completely made up “so-called” biblical truths. There is nothing farther from the TRUTH than what they teach. Again, I say, it is a counterfeit, and is a very harmful counterfeit.
I repeat …
When they say “We must keep the Sabbath and Feasts. If you don’t, you are a lowly pagan and not a true covenant keeper” … or something to that effect … they are talking about and teaching “TALMUDIC” sabbath and feasts (lowercase spelling intended).
You may want to figure it out what is so deceptive about it. But, it would be a “work of the flesh” and is futile. Besides …, it is so complicated and deceiving that only way to protect yourself from their claws of deception is to STAY AWAY from anything to do with Judaism and Talmud, which Messianic Jews and Hebrew Roots teachers teach. They are masters of mind-controlling, and I am not exaggerating. Stick to what is in the Bible, and Bible alone. There is no more time to waste.
Be not deceived, and stay away from the Judaizers!
Now, it is undeniable and overwhelmingly clear that …
Chanukah is a “hidden” Jewish version of Saturnalia, and the false Masonic church calls it Christmas.
They are the same Kabbalah holiday celebrating
I hope that it is as clear to you as it is to me.
In addition, even if it is a “biblically named” feast, Judaism way is FALSE.
Here is what our Father says about the Jewish new moons and feasts:
Isaiah 1:14 (14) Your New Moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; They are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them.
He said “YOUR” New Moon and feasts… not “My,” and His soul hates it. The Jewish feasts are not His …. He said it.
Therefore, the Jewish way of celebrating any feasts, even in the modern days, is NOT the “Feasts of the LORD.” They are “Jewish feasts,” including all the “biblically named” feasts of the Jews, such as “passover,” “feast of tabernacle,” and all. Judaizers repeat it over and over that they are biblical … but, NO, THEY ARE NOT of OUR FATHER, who is the true and only God.
All these facts we have discussed above point to one conclusion:
The same people are celebrating winter solstice in many different hidden ways. And they are the Babylon the Mother of Harlot (Rev 17:5).
This is clearly evidenced by the following facts:
They use different idols with the same symbolism: Christmas Tree or Chanukiah … and both idols represent the Babylonian/Kabbalah Tree of Life.
Both holidays are celebrated on the winter solstice, on the 25th day of the winter month, and continues for seven to eight days.
In addition, the custom is the same: gift giving, feasting, being merry, decorating with lights, festivity, indulging of the flesh, etc.
There are probably more, but these will suffice to show that they are simply the same Babylonian Satanic worship disguised in different forms and with different names — This is the Babylonian system of the world.
Satan has been indeed deceiving the whole world …
Revelation 12:9 (9) So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; …
I have nothing else to say but this:
Do not participate in either Christmas or Chanukah.
They are abomination to our Father; so should they be to you.
