Hanukkah means dedication.
The annual, winter Feast of Dedication/Hanukkah (John 10:22), is what the Bible instructs us to understand honor, not Christmas.
Achoti/My sista Huldah Dauid provided an excellent exposition on what Hanukkah is and what it is not. It’s well worth your time, so please watch it:
Let us understand,
leads to dedication/hanukkah
and there’s no dedication/hanukkah
“Train (chanak/hanok) up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 22:6 את CEPHER
It’s our duty to learn the truth and to teach it to the next generations; this is how we restore righteousness back to our culture (we have to restore it because it was taken away from us), but HalleluYAH because we are relearning our history understandings—Hanukkah is our culture family! Just as the Menorah, Temple, and Torah were previously taken away from us, and then YAH restored them for a time, the books of the Maccabees were also taken away from us, and now they are restored unto us. Learn the feast… Keep the feast… Stay dedicated to YAH and His Kingdom!
Until next time, shalom
