DOING WHAT JESUS DID – “BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM” – HANUKKAH NIGHT 7

time - rainbow

The seventh letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet is zayin, which has a numerical value of 7 and a pictograph that looks like a sword. Zayin’s pictograph symbolically represents either to cut or to pierce.  Therefore, as the seventh day of Hanukkah opens, let’s inspect Yeshua’s fifth Hanukkah “I AM” statement recorded by the sword of the Spirit – “Jesus said to them, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM’” (John 8:58 NKJV).

We examined yesterday that the first vav is connected to alef-tav (et) in Scripture. Alef is the first letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet while tav is the last of twenty-two. Throughout scripture there are random references to alef-tav that have been largely disregarded when the Jewish people read their Bible, or when scripture is translated into other languages, including English. So far, only Hebrew Mystics have tried to delve into the reason for those “random” alef-tavs existing in the written Word of God.

Fundamentally, these “random” alef-tavs are not random at all when you begin with the understanding that alef-tav not only represents all Hebrew Living Letters (i.e., the Hebrew Alef-bet), but also the Word of God from which that Hebrew Living Letters emanate. Messiah Yeshua is called by the name of the “Word of God” in Revelation 19:13, which is called the “sword of the Spirit” in Ephesians 6:17.

When Jesus declared during Hanukkah that “before Abraham was, I AM,” He’s was connecting us to Alef-Tav: “‘I am the Alpha [Alef] and the Omega [Tav],’ says the Lord God [Adonai], ‘who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty [El Shaddai]’” (Revelation 1:8 NASB).

If one takes the Word of God on face value, it’s a no-brainer that the Yeshua Messiah who is and who was and who is to come existed before Abraham and He is unlimited as the Almighty. Being unlimited, Yeshua did not despise coming as the Savior of the World in time within eternity.

As Metatron, Yeshua is the fully Mature Head of the Messiah, which connects to His fully Mature Body. Metatron Messiah Yeshua and company is the righteous keeper of time. The only way to manifest being unlimited due to eternity being set in your heart when you accept Yeshua (Jesus) as Lord and Savior is to be solely connected to the Alef-Tav Messiah. Refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/16/christmas-tether-to-space-time/.

 

Within Alef-Tav, the Hebrew letter zayin represents both a sword and the number 7. It is used to rightly divide or cut up time (z’man) into unites of seven according to the Word of God:

• 7TH DAY of the week is the Sabbath [week of days]

• 49TH DAY after Passover (Pesach) is Pentecost (Shavuot) [week of weeks]

• 7TH MONTH of the year is Tishei or simply “7” [week of months]

• 7TH YEAR of rest for the land is the Shemitah [week of years]

• 49TH YEAR is the last jubilee year in a cycle – a Yovel [week of week of years]

• 7TH MILLENNIUM of human history since Adam and Eve were created is the Millennial Kingdom [week of 1000s or weeks of eons]

The number 7 has always been regarded as the number of completion, wholeness, blessing and rest. These “zayin z’man” Biblical marks of time are contained within the Word of God who is Messiah Yeshua and He is unlimited; therefore, those people rightly connected to Him should be unlimited too.

This is one of the most important reasons that God’s people need to hear, understand and do what Yeshua (Jesus) did. When we do as Jesus did, we are operating in the unlimited realm (eternity) simultaneously while existing in time, bringing heaven to earth. When we connect to a false Messiah – an Antichrist – we don’t.

Yeshua celebrated the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah), not Christmas. Please refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/yeshua-celebrated-hanukkah-not-christmas/. How do I know? Well… after Yeshua epiphaneously came to me with tears in His eyes saying “The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart. Come out of Babylon. Lay down Christmas, for I WILL have a pure and spotless Bride,” I was sipping tea in a stunned state and asked Him, “What do we do now?” Yeshua told me: “Do what I did,” then referred me to John 10. At the time I loved Christmas and didn’t know Jesus celebrated the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) during the winter. For more, please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-4E and http://wp.me/p158HG-kH.

I have come to find out that Hanukkah is actually the redeemed version of Christmas, because Messiah Yeshua celebrated it. Significantly, Yeshua is the only one specifically shown celebrating Hanukkah in the New Testament, even though all believers are implied in the “Solomon’s Colonnade” reference.

Know that the first specified Antichrist in scripture celebrated Christmas before it was called Christmas. Antiochus Epiphanes IV of Hanukkah fame placed an image of a Greek sun god idol on God’s Altar on December 25th; and then, sacrificed a pig on that same defiled altar. This is what Yeshua celebrated – the overthrow of Christmas on God’s Altar (our hearts).

We need understand the origins of Christmas. Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-1t, http://wp.me/p158HG-2m, or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INypfLsTaPw.

Christmas had two immediate predecessors in the fourth-century when it got assimilated into the Church:

[1] The immediate predecessor for Christmas Day was Mithra’s Winter Festival. The Catholic Encyclopedia admits that: The Nativity of the Unconquered Sun (i.e., Mithra’s Winter Festival) has strong claim on the responsibility for our December 25th date. Mithra was a Persian sun god adopted by the Roman Legion; but more importantly, we should note that the false Metatron figure is Metatron Mithra.

[2] The immediate predecessor for the Christmas Season was the Roman Saturnalia, which is also called the Yuletide Season. Not only was the Saturnalia a season of extreme excess in all carnal indulgences, it’s also the worship of Saturn. When Aaron tried to depict the divinity of the Most High as a golden calf, he looked back to Egypt to the calf that represented the divinity of the ancient Chaldean (Babylonian) god – Saturn – who also anciently connects to the Black Cube that endeavors to control time.

It’s not a coincidence that the Messiah in His fullness (Completely Mature Head of Yeshua with His Completely Mature Body) is called Metatron, and Metatron is the keeper of time. Actually, Metatron Messiah is the keeper of space-time.

Believers will either choose to come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas to become a precious part of His Pure and Spotless Bride, or not. If you choose to keep Christmas, know that you are choosing to connect to a false Messiah – Mithra – as well as choosing to connect to the Black Cube, which symbolizes the Satanic control of space-time.

When believers choose to connect to the true Messiah through our beliefs and our actions, many things in this world grow strangely dim. One of the things growing strangely dim for devout hearts is the tinsel of Christmas. Know that the pure and spotless Bride of the Messiah is completely one with her Beloved Bridegroom Messiah Yeshua in all things, including the marks of time and feasts in the Bible.

 

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

[1] What is the fifth “I AM” statement that Yeshua declared during Hanukkah? Answer: “Before Abraham I AM” in John 8:58.

[2] What is the seventh letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet and what does it represent” Answer: Zayin, which is a picture of a sword. It represents to cut or to pierce.

[3] How does connecting to Messiah Yeshua and doing what He did make you unlimited?

 

Happy Hearty Hanukkah!!!

DOING WHAT JESUS DID – “I AM THE LIGHT” – HANUKKAH NIGHT 6

keys eagle

The sixth letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet is vav, which has a numerical value of 6 and a pictograph that looks like a tent peg or a nail. Vav’s pictograph symbolically represents: joining together, making secure, or becoming bound or nailed to. Therefore, as the sixth day of Hanukkah opens let’s be joined to the first and sixth Hanukkah “I AM” statements of Yeshua – “I am the Light of the World.”

It’s not a coincidence that Yeshua’s first “I AM” statement during Hanukkah and His sixth are connected to the light of the world. Please keep in mind that the scriptural passage John 8:12-John 10:42 portrays Yeshua (Jesus) during the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah).

The first vav in God’s Word is in Genesis 1:1 – “In the beginning God created the heavens and [vav] the earth.” This first vav in scripture sets a precedence. It’s the sixth word as well as the twenty-second letter of the first verse. This first vav alludes to the power to connect all the powers of the Hebrew Living Letters from alef to tav.

The Hebrew word “et,” which is spelled alef-tav, not only represents the entire Hebrew Alphabet, but it refers to the Word of God from which the Hebrew Living Letters emanate. Revelation 19:13 tells us that Messiah Yeshua is called by the name the Word of God: “And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and he called his name, The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13 Lamsa’s Aramaic).

Messiah Yeshua is also referred to as “I am the Alef and the Tav, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (Revelation 22:13). In this verse, Yeshua directly refers to Himself as Adonai – the God of Mercy. When He did this, Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) was/is declaring that there is no other “god” beside Him. By the way, Yeshua literally proclaimed that He was the one Isaiah spoke about in Isaiah 41:4, Isaiah 44:6, and Isaiah 48:12. “For by Him were all things created that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him and for Him: And He is before all things and by Him all things consist” (Colossians 1:16-17).

Hebrew Sages interpret the word “et” (alef-tav) in Genesis 1:1 to include all the various objects of creation that are present within heaven and earth.

• “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men” (John 1:1-4 NASB).

• “And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3 NASB).

Hebrew Mysticism reveals that in the beginning of creation when INFINITE LIGHT FILLED ALL-IN-ALL (i.e., all reality), God contracted His Infinite Light to create a place – a hallow empty space as it were – for the existence of finite worlds. Into this vacuum, God figuratively drew down a single line of light from the Infinite Source. Behold, through Alef-Tav who is the Light of the World all things came to be and are constantly upheld through the word of His power (i.e., the power of the word).

These Hebrew Sages say that this single ray of light is the secret of the Hebrew Living Letter “vav.” The first vav in the Bible serves to join matter (this spacetime continuum) with spirit (eternity). The first vav shows us the Messiah (Alef-Tav) and His power to connect heaven and earth. The mature Body of Christ (Messiah) will walk in this crossover place too, bringing heaven to earth.

 

It is always wise to be humble and teachable; because in this Kingdom Day, the royal priests of the Order of Melchizedek will come in the Spirit of Elijah to restore all things:

• “Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will RESTORE ALL THINGS” (Matthew 17:11 NKJV).

• “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the TIMES OF THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began” (Acts 3:19-21 NKJV)

We must always have an eye for redemption in everything, including the Antichrist, believe it or not! Didn’t God say that He is going to restore ALL things? The Antichrist’s number is infamously 666. Six is the number of man, because man was created in God’s image on the sixth day. E.W. Bullinger who wrote Numbers in Scripture says that the number 6 represents man without God. Therefore, one can interpret that 666 is a completely self-focused man. This is part of the mystery of iniquity. Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-bC and https://santatizing.wordpress.com/…/which-side-of-the-myst…/ and https://santatizing.wordpress.com/…/given-to-you-to-know-m…/.

So, the beast of the Antichrist can be a completely selfish man; but what is the Antichrist’s goal? To become like God. To become the head of the body of the Messiah himself. When Revelation 13:18 says “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666,” we need to examine the redemptive side of His double-edged sword.

Just as one side of the double-edged sword for “love covers a multitude of sins” speaks of confidentiality while the other side speaks of us covering the sins we love, so it is with  “let him who has understanding calculate the number… 666.” Refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/…/the-two-edges-of-love-…/. One side of the double-edged sword’s understanding of “666” we know is the number of the Antichrist Beast. The other side of “666” is the mystery of the number 666, which can also represent complete light – the Messiah Himself – when the Antichrist is turned right side up. Let him who has understanding, behold, that “666” can additionally represent the redemption of the Messiah bodily (i.e., you and I). ”666” can either represent the darkness of a completely selfish man in our body soul, and spirit; or it can represent the complete transformation/transfiguration of our body, our soul and our spirit into light … into the exact same image as Messiah. Refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/…/behold-th…/.

Let him who has understanding behold the redemption of all things. Let us behold (be and hold onto), “I am the Light of the World!”

 

• “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I AM the Light of the World. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12 NKJV).

• “As long as I AM in the world, I AM the Light of the World” (John 9:5 NKJV).

• “YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16 NASB).

 

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

[1] What is the first “I AM” statement that Yeshua declared during Hanukkah? Answer: “I AM the Light of the World” in John 8:12.

[2] How can you connect heaven to earth?

[3] How can you shine perfectly like Messiah Yeshua – the Light of the World?

 

Happy Hearty Hanukkah!!!

DOING WHAT JESUS DID – “I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD” – HANUKKAH NIGHT 5

111 - lamb hug
The fifth letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet is hei, which has a numerical value of 5 and a pictograph that looks like a man (a priest) with his hands raised. Hei’s pictograph symbolically represents: behold, look, show or reveal. Therefore, as the fifth day of Hanukkah opens let’s behold the eleventh and twelfth Hanukkah “I AM” statements of Yeshua – “I am the Good Shepherd.”

Recollect that John 8:12-John 10:42 passage of scripture portrays Yeshua (Jesus) during the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah). Every reference to “shepherd” in the Word of God is connected to the two “I am the Good Shepherd” statements that Yeshua made during the Feast of Dedication: “I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD; a good shepherd risks his life for the sake of his sheep. But the hired person who is not the shepherd and who is not the owner of the sheep, when he sees the wolf coming, leaves the sheep and runs away; and the wold comes and seizes and scatters the sheep. The hired person runs away because he is hired and does not care for the sheep. I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD, and I know my own, and my own know me” (John 10:11-14 Lamsa’s Aramaic).

One of my favorite verses about Messiah Yeshua our Good Shepherd is founds in the Book of Hebrews. When Abraham got his new name, he is first called “Abraham the Hebrew” (Genesis 14:13). The root of the Hebrew word for “Hebrew” (ivri) literally means “to cross over.” Let’s listen to Hebrews 13:20 with the ears of ones’ who have crossed over the Door to be from above: “Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who bought again from the dead our LORD JESUS, THAT GREAT SHEPHERD OF THE SHEEP, BY THE BLOOD [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament), strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages) Amen (so be it)” (Hebrews 13:20-21 Amplified).

I could go on and on about the Good Shepherd and Guardian of our souls (1 Peter 2:25). Not only does my maiden name mean Seer Shepherd, but my husband and I are literally shepherds. When I read passages about how “he shall feed his flock like a SHEPHERD… gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and … gently lead those that are young” (Isaiah 40:11), my heart knows these rhythms well. When God asks, “Who is the shepherd that will stand before me?” He is inquiring, Who will love my lambs like I do? Who will move with the cadences of My heart to teach the sheep that appear to have no shepherd?

Our Good Shepherd restores our soul, and leads us in the paths of righteousness for His Name sake (Psalm 24:3) that we can dwell in the House of the Lord forever (Psalm 24:6).

1 Peter 5:4 tells us when the Chief Shepherd appears, we shall receive a crown of glory that fades not. Behold, in the midst of God’s Kingdom is a lamb who is in the midst of the Throne who will shepherd and lead all of God’s people to the fountains of living water, fresh-tender green pastures and a table in the presence of your enemies where you will feast on His goodness (Psalms 23; Revelation 7:17).

The Anointed One who declared twice during Hanukkah “I am the Good Shepherd” is asking His sheep to come to His Table. When we come Hanukkah’s Table, to do as Jesus did, we are partaking of the Messiah’s Table. Refer to => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2017/12/07/wall-of-remembrance-reveals-joining-the-messiahs-table/. 1 Corinthians 10:21 tells us that we cannot partake of the Lord’s Table and the table of demons. Unfortunately, I can give you testimony after testimony that demons have always been part of the celebration of Christmas. Please refer to the THIS IS CHRISTMAS series below.

Listen closely little lambs. Put your head on His bosom and hear His heart, for His rod will protect you, and His staff will truly guide and comfort you (Psalm 23:4).

DOING WHAT JESUS DID – “I AM THE DOOR” – HANUKKAH NIGHT 4

Gate Eastern
The fourth letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet is dalet, which has a numerical value of 4 and a pictograph that looks like a door. It represents a door, a path, a way of life, or movement (especially into or out of). Therefore, as the fourth day of Hanukkah opens let’s explore the eighth as well as the ninth Hanukkah “I AM” statements of Yeshua – “I am the door.”

Remember, John 8:12-John 10:42 portrays Yeshua (Jesus) during the Feast of Dedication. It’s very significant that Yeshua declares twice “I am the door” in the midst of God’s Winter One-Dear-Land: “‘Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the DOOR into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the DOOR is a shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.’ This figure of speech Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand what those things were which He had been saying to them. So Jesus said to them again, ‘Truly, Truly, I say to you, I AM THE DOOR OF THE SHEEP. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I AM THE DOOR; IF ANYONE ENTERS THROUGH ME, HE WILL BE SAVED, AND WILL GO IN AND OUT AND FIND PASTURE” (John 10:1-9 NASB).

We previously explored why God chose shepherds to be His witness that the Messiah was born. When I sought the Lord, I heard that the shepherds watching their flocks at night, the Good Shepherd Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ), and the time of year that Yeshua declared himself to be the Good Shepherd – Hanukkah – are all connected. Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/12/03/why-shepherds/. God chose shepherds to witness the birth of Jesus, because He wanted to illustrate that Hanukkah is connected to Jesus’ birth, not Christmas. Many people believe that Jesus was conceived during the Feast of Dedication. Perhaps. It’s a good educated guess, but we need to note that God chose to hide the fact of when Jesus was born. All we truly know is that it was not winter due to these shepherds watching their flocks by night in the fields. Seehttp://wp.me/p158HG-nY.

At the Gateway of Awe in God’s Winter One-Dear-Land, it is the Light of the World illuminating the Door of the Good Shepherd – the Feast of Dedication.

I teach extensively about how the Cherubim in scripture are a picture of the New Living Creature made after the Order of Melchizedek. “This is the Living Creature I saw under the God of Israel by the river Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubim” (Ezekiel 10:20 KJV). Refer tohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BElDZaaFqo. When a wing of God’s Melchizedek Army (four or more believers who have entered the Kingdom of God) fly by the Spirit with one another, they rise through the Revelation 4:1 DOOR – Yeshua – and they stand at the DOOR of the East Gate where Jesus returns to earth:

• “For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matthew 24:27 NASB).

• “And the Cherubim lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and EVERY ONE STOOD AT THE DOOR OF THE EAST GATE OF THE LORD’S HOUSE; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above” (Ezekiel 10:19 KJV).

• “After these things I looked and behold, A DOOR STANDING OPEN IN HEAVEN, and the first voice which I had heard. Like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things. And immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne” (Revelation 4:1-2 NASB).

Remember, we are supposed to walk like Jesus, talk like Jesus and be exactly like Jesus. Also remember, Jesus declaration “I am from above.” Refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2017/12/14/doing-what-jesus-did-i-am-from-above-hanukkah-night-2/. The ultimate purpose of the Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek is to become the fully mature Body of the Messiah that holds fast to the Head – Messiah Yeshua. This is accomplished by the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek leading their own inner fire bride forth. Once we are manifestly wedded as the Bride of the Messiah, we then become incorporated into His Oneness Metatron Matrix (i.e., become one with the Messiah Yeshua). Please refer to ONENESS METATRON MATRIX – FULLY MATURE SONS => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/11/30/oneness-metatron-matrix-fully-mature-sons/ and FULL GOVERNMENT OF GOD PRIZE – IMMORTALITY => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/12/02/full-government-of-god-prize-immortality/.

Esther 6:2 reveals that the king’s chamberlains are the keepers of the DOOR. The king’s chamberlains are the kings and priests of the Eternal Order of Melchizedek who are treasurers of the most intimate. YHVH’s Melchizedek Company is the predecessor for the unparalleled beauty of His Pure and Spotless Bridal Company. They both have pure hearts surrounded by Yeshua’s Blood, which passes through the righteous judgments that emanate from His Sapphire Throne. Behold, the Judge stands at the DOOR (James 5:9).

One of the bridal preparation functions that the Order of Melchizedek operates in is the role of the king’s chamberlain. A chamberlain is an attendant on a sovereign in his bedchamber. He is the chief officer in the household of a king who is the treasurer of his most intimate possessions. Behold, “my beloved put in his hand by the hole OF THE DOOR, and my bowels were moved for him” (Song of Songs 5:4 KJV). As guardians of the king’s most cherished treasures – our very selves and everyone made in His image – the royal priests of Melchizedek are in-charge of receiving, keeping and disbursing the king’s resources according to His heart.

One of the primary doors that we are guardians of is the door of our own heart. This is the primary focus for Hanukkah. The Messiah’s Feast of Dedication is the dedication of one’s own heart.

It’s major deal that a DOOR/GATE is mentioned for each one of the four abominations listed in Ezekiel chapter 8 that drives God’s Dwelling Presence far from His sanctuary (Ezekiel 8:5,7,8,14,16). These four abominations map to the four face of God (Melchizedek), and these four defile one’s heart. To the degree that we compromise with the four abominations is the degree that we don’t operate in the fullness of the Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek. This means that we will not be completely ruling and reigning in those compromised areas. The worship of Mithra (i.e. celebration of Christmas) compromises the face of the ox – the Father – which the Cherubim (who form the corporate Order of Melchizedek) is supposed to operate in. For more revelation => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/04/christmas-compromises-the-face-of-the-ox-the-crystal-clear-connection-to-the-new-jerusalem/ and https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/05/4-abominations-determine-degree-of-the-4-faces-of-god/.

Behold, Yeshua who declares “I AM THE DOOR” during Hanukkah is knocking on the door of your heart. He wants you to open up to all of Him, including the feasts in God’s Word that the Messiah celebrated. When Yeshua says, “BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE DOOR, AND KNOCK: IF ANY MAN HEAR MY VOICE, AND OPEN THE DOOR, I WILL COME IN TO HIM, AND WILL SUP WITH HIM, AND HE WITH ME” (Revelation 3:20 KJV), He is speaking as the GREAT I AM:

• “I AM the Door of the sheep” (John 10:7).

• “I AM the DOOR: by Me if any one enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture” (John 10:9).

• “I AM the Alpha (Alef) and the Omega (Tav)” (Revelation 1:11).

• “I AM He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I AM alive forevermore” (Revelation 1:18).

DOING WHAT JESUS DID – “I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD” – HANUKKAH NIGHT 3

World - 12 O Clock Fire

“And He said to them, ‘You are from beneath; I AM from above. You are of this world; I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD” (John 8:23 NKJV). The third Hanukkah “I AM” statement of Yeshua is “I am not of this world,” which dovetails with our second Hanukkah “I AM” statements in John 8:23 “I am from above.”

Please recall that the passage John 8:12 through John 10:42 portrays Yeshua (Jesus) during the Feast of Dedication.  In Hebrew, the word for dedication or re-dedication is “Hanukkah.” Yesterday, I gave you a head start for today’s devotional reading by asking you to ponder the Antichrist that opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 KJV).

We are going to illustrate Yeshua’s “I am not of this world” statement through the intense history of Hanukkah itself, especially the incredible story about Chana and her seven sons.  Unlike the miracle of oil legend, the story of Chana and her seven sons truly happened. It’s recorded in the Book of Second Maccabees Chapter 7 and elsewhere.

Before we can get into Chana’s story, we need to understand what was happening in Israel at the time. Amazingly, Daniel had foretold of the Antichrist that arose during the actual events of the Hanukkah 300 years before. Within the history of Hanukkah is the most precise revelation about what is going to happen in the end times and how to overcome. In fact, for our day, we didn’t have the markers on the calendar to be able to calculate the fulfillment of the Antichrist being revealed until both Purim and Hanukkah were put in place. Messiah Yeshua tells us that the Abomination of Desolation is going to happen again to a greater degree, and He refers back to the first fulfillment of the Antichrist: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand), … For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:15,21 NKJV). Please refer to CHOOSE BEAUTY OR THE BEAST.

There’s a blueprint for the end times in the story of Hanukkah, so pay attention. It was a time when Israel had been restored and God’s people had a temple. Never forget that we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). It was a time when a new civilization rose up – the Syrian-Greeks – who wanted everyone to be part of the same one world system. This new One World Order had an Antichrist – Antiochus Epiphanes IV – who demanded that everyone follow the ways of the Greeks, and solely worship the gods of the Greeks. Antiochus sent out a royal decree that every nation must give up its traditions and its gods to all be one in a New World Order. Everyone did, except Is-real.

Therefore, the Antichrist Antiochus vowed to wipe this stubborn people and their faith off the face of the map. Always keep in mind that had not Judah the Maccabee and his band of faithful men taken their courageous stand against the Antichrist of their day and had not overcome overwhelming odds to save their culture and religion from utter annihilation, both Judaism and Christianity most likely would not exist today. The enemy of our souls knew that the Messiah was coming then, and he knows that the Messiah is coming again very soon. Before the Messiah came the first time, there is an attempt made to destroy the faith of Is-real and make everyone apostate.

It is at this point that the first Antichrist Antiochus goes into God’s Temple and sets up an idol in His Holy Place. Some say it was a statue of Zeus put on God’s Altar. Some say it was Jupiter. In a sense, it really doesn’t matter, because both of them were Greek sun gods. It wasn’t a coincidence that this idol was set up in 168 BC on Jupiter’s Winter Festival, which was the 15th of Kislev which happened to be the 25th of December that year. Throughout antiquity, all pagan sun gods’ birthdays were celebrated on the ancient Winter Solstice – December 25th. So, the Antichrist Antiochus sets up an image on Christmas Day; then later sacrifices a pig on God’s Altar, as a sign of utmost contempt. This is when the Antichrist abolishes all sacrifices (i.e., wholehearted worship) to the Most High God, as foretold in the Book of Daniel (Daniel 11:31; Daniel 12:11); and makes God’s Temple a pagan temple. For greater detail, please refer to JOURNEY TO BECOME HIS BRIDE #1 and #2 => https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/15/journey-to-become-his-bride-story-of-hanukkah-1/  and https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/15/journey-to-become-his-bride-story-of-hanukkah-2-battle-to-re-dedicate-gods-altar/. And/or the SANTA-TIZING videos #5 and #6 => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdhOh4iRD6c and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-qVfQtUaKA.

We should look for an actual manifestation of the Antichrist again, but don’t forget that the spirit of the Antichrist is already at work affecting our lives today. So, the Dwelling Place of God (which you are) becomes unholy. There are pagan celebrations in God’s Temple; therefore, the light that is in God’s Temple is in fact darkness. Sexual immorality and every kind of defilement is instituted as worship in pagan temple that used to be God’s, and God’s people (the Jews in the Hanukkah story) can’t even go up to their Temple. [If you are reading this post as a devotional reading, you might want to censor the following for little ears, because things are going to get very graphic right quick.]

This is when the Antichrist ramps up persecuting God’s people, and the story of Chana and her seven sons comes into play. The Antichrist Antiochus takes four deliberate steps to forcibly make the people of the Book Greeks (i.e., hellenize them):

 

[1] Removal of the righteous high priest (seat of power) for one that would do man’s (the Antichrist’s) bidding.

 

[2] Dissolve the Biblical Calendar to remove God instilling holiness into time. The Antichrist forbid observance of seventh-day Sabbath, new moon celebrations, and biblical festivals that kept God’s people’s weeks, months and years holy.

 

[3] Forbid the Word of God (i.e., Torah) and keeping kosher (i.e., respecting the sanctity of life). Pigs blood was poured unto Torah Scrolls and these books were burnt.

 

[4] Forbid circumcision. If a family circumcised their baby on the eighth day, as a physical sign of their Abrahamic Covenant, the baby was killed and hung around the neck of the mother; then the mother was hung from gallows in the town square.

 

This is when Chana and her seven sons are chosen by Phillip the governor of Judea to set an example. Although Antiochus IV was on his way to Antioch in Syria, he turned back due to various resistance events, including the recent martyrdom of Elazar the Kohen. Chana and all seven of her sons were corporately and publicly brought to Antiochus Epiphanes IV. Then one-by-one Chana’s sons were personally brought before him from oldest to youngest. King Antiochus thought he could win these youngsters over through flattery and bribes, but he had not counted on the steadfastly righteous Chana and her rightly bringing up her sons in the way that they should go.

The eldest son responded to Antiochus: “Why do you trouble yourself with long conversations, to speak of and teach us the religions of your abominations? Our forefathers have already taught us God’s Torah. We stand ready to ascend to God, for we welcome death for the sake of God and His Torah [first five books of the Bible]. So we have promised our forefathers! Why need you speak more? Dispatch us speedily to HASHEM (YHVH) our God – kill us!”

Hearing the eldest son’s words, the king flew into a rage. He commanded that an iron frying pan be brought and put on the fire. He ordered his servant to cut off the boy’s tongue, hands and feet, flay the skin of his head, and place everything upon the frying pan over the fire while his brothers and mother were forced to watched. Then the victim – still alive – was put in a copper pot over burning coals. The Antichrist was so cruel that as the eldest son was about to die, he commanded Phillip to remove the pot from fire so that he would not die rapidly.

The Antichrist’s hope to intimidate Chana and her remaining sons didn’t work. One-by-one they affirmed their belief in the Most High God and their refusal to worship another. They all suffered the same gruesome death on the same day, except Chana’s youngest seven-year-old son suffered the most.

The governor of Judea and King Antiochus were crestfallen that their plan had not worked. A woman and her six young sons appeared to triumph over them. When Antiochus asked that the seventh brother be brought to him, he implored the little boy: “Do my will and I swear to you I will appoint you as my viceroy; you will reign over my entire kingdom. You will be wealthy, with gold and silver and many possessions.” The 70-year-old Antichrist was willing to give a 7-year-old his entire worldly kingdom, if only he would deny his faith and eat pig’s meat.

This little mighty man of valor showed everyone that “I am not of this world” when he refused the Antichrist, being encouraged by his mom: “The assurances of man are vain and empty – they will not avail nor give success. It is nothing compared to the everlasting world to come. Now my son! Let not this merciless tyrant reassure you with deceitful promises, do not rely on his pronouncements – for what can he give you? What can a human give, who has no control over his own body, over his own life?” When Chana’s youngest emphatically refused to defile the Name, the Antichrist flew into a rage and commanded that Chana’s last son be more brutally beaten than the others, then he was killed in the same way as is brothers.

Chana, unique in her devotion, being pious and pure, stood over the seven bodies of her sons strewn about the earth and she lifted her hands skyward. Chana prayed: “My heart exults in HASHEM. My pride is uplifted through my God, for through my sons He has chosen to reconsider His wrath against His people, that they may again be His servants. My mouth opens wide against my enemies, for they were unable to entice even one of my sons to turn to the service of their delusions (i.e., idols) which are of no avail and save not, for they are as nought. There is none as holy as HASHEM, and none but He is the savior of the souls trusting in Him.” When Chana finishes pouring out her heart, some versions say that her soul departed. Some sources say that Chana ascended a roof after her sons were brutally murdered and she threw herself off. Some say that Chana lost her sanity and committed suicide. Thus, the incredible price paid by one to be one with the Messiah who declares “I am not of this world.”

DOING WHAT JESUS DID – “I AM FROM ABOVE” – HANUKKAH NIGHT 2

Ascension Bride

Got the best testimony yesterday: “After walking with the Lord for just under 40 years, Holy Spirit has led me to celebrate Hanukkah for the very first time. You weren’t kidding when you said that a portal has opened up! I have had such an astounding Day 1 that words almost fail me!!! I’ll just say that it has been nothing short of extraordinary, a weighty, epic milestone event has emerged this evening and will continue to unfold during this precious season. All the earth will be blessed. I am dazed and amazed. King of the Universe I commend Thee!” Don’t you just love this?! Paula gloriously encountered the Most High God (the Ascended God), as she simply did what Jesus did. Would love to hear about your own testimony. Please share in the comments below.

For Day 2 of Hanukkah, let’s explore the second “I AM” statement that Yeshua (Jesus) proclaimed during Hanukkah. Recall that the passage John 8:12 through John 10:42 tell us about the works Yeshua did, and the celebration that He walked in during the Feast of Heart Dedication – Hanukkah.

“And He said to them, ‘You are from beneath; I AM FROM ABOVE. You are of this world; I AM not of this world” (John 8:23 NKJV). Technically, there are two “I AM” statements in John 8:23; but we will only focus on the first one “I am from above.”

After Yeshua declares “I AM the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12 NKJV), His very next Hanukkah I AM statement is “I AM from above.” The GREAT I AM is above what we can think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). Beyond our horizons in all capacities and dimensions.

Before Yeshua pronounced “I am from above” in John 8:23, John the Baptist proclaimed the following in His regard: “He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears Him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. So this joy of mine has been made full. He must increase, but I must decrease. HE WHO COMES FROM ABOVE IS ABOVE ALL, he who is of the earth is from the earth and speaks of the earth. HE WHO COMES FROM HEAVEN IS ABOVE ALL” (John 3:29-31 NASB).

When we couple these exalted truths with knowing that Messiah Yeshua is called “the Word of God” (Revelation 19:13) and He is the radiance of God’s glory that upholds all things by the word of His power (Hebrews 1:3), we can get a glimpse into why scripture tells us that God’s Word is above every name: “I will praise thee with my whole heart; before the kings will I sing praise to thee. I will worship in thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth; for thou hast MAGNIFIED THY WORD ABOVE EVERY NAME” (Psalms 138:1-2 Lamsa’s Aramaic).

Philippians 2 declares this lofty reality this way: “And being found as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even death of the cross. WHEREFORE GOD ALSO HATH HIGHLY EXALTED HIM, AND GIVEN HIM A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:8-11 KJV).

Behold, we have “ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL, WHO IS ABOVE ALL, and through all, and in you all” (Ephesians 4:6 KJV). Behold, the One above it all has set the Messiah – who consists of a Head (Yeshua) and a Body – at the Majesty’s right hand in heavenly places: “For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and SEATED HIM AT HIS RIGHT HAND IN HEAVENLY PLACES, FAR ABOVE ALL RULE AND AUTHORITY AND POWER AND DOMINION, AND EVERY NAME THAT IS NAMED, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and GAVE HIM AS HEAD OVER ALL THINGS TO THE CHURCH, WHICH IS HIS BODY, THE FULLNESS OF HIM WHO FILLS ALL IN ALL” (Ephesians 1:15-23 NASB).

Talk about an incredible mystery! The Father who is above all has seated Messiah Yeshua at His right hand of power and declared Him to be the Head of all things, including the ekklesia – a company of people united in one body. This ekklesia formerly walked according to the course of this world fulfilling the lusts of the flesh; but now they have put on the new man in Christ where He has “raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6 NASB).

Tomorrow, we will further explore Yeshua’s third Hanukkah “I AM” statement: “I AM not of this world” (John 8:23 NKJV). For now, ponder that it is the Antichrist that opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God: “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy (a falling away) comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the SON OF DESTRUCTION; WHO OPPOSES AND EXALTS HIMSELF ABOVE EVERY SO-CALLED GOD or objects of worship; so that he takes his seat in the Temple of God, displaying himself as being God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 NASB).

Within the history of Hanukkah is the most precise revelation about what is going to happen in the end times and how to overcome. Please refer below to “Choose Beauty of the Beast,” “Journey to Become His Bride (Story of Hanukkah),” and “Blazing New Wine” SANTA-TIZING videos.

This Hanukkah Season is a HEARTY HANUKKAH Season. There’s great grace given to examine any areas in our lives where we do not totally and completely align with the GREAT I AM. Always remember we are meant to be completely one with the ONE who declares “I am from above.” Let’s do what Jesus did. Let’s re-dedicate the altars of our hearts to purely walk, as Yeshua walked and set our eyes above. Let’s rise above the things of this world in order to appear with Him in glory: “Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the THINGS ABOVE, WHERE CHRIST [THE MESSIAH] IS, SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD. Set your mind on the things ABOVE, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:1-4 NASB).

May you enter His Gateway of Awe, even more, in His Winter One-Dear-Land to ascend on high and lead your own captivity captive (Ephesians 4:9-10). May your eyes be enlightened to be and hold onto that I AM from above!!!

DOING WHAT JESUS DID – “I AM THAT I AM” – HANUKKAH NIGHT 1

man - light blue painting

Welcome to the Gateway of Awe in God’s Winter One-Dear-Land!!!

Wooooo Hooooo!!!!! Tonight, Hanukkah begins! All the feasts that Jesus celebrated follow the Biblical model of a day being counted from sundown to sundown, like in the story of Creation in Genesis 1. “And there was evening and there was morning, one day” (Genesis 1:5 NASB). The Feast of Dedication – Hanukkah – is an eight-day celebration running from sundown December 12 to sundown December 20, 2017. Typically, the Hanukkah Menorah lights are kindled around sundown. Personally, I am not so concerned at being so exact to start at sundown that I miss the pure heart of entering in. You can find kindling of lights instructions, blessings and devotions below, which are listed under “Have a Hearty Hanukkah!!!”

Yeshua (Jesus) did many things during Hanukkah. You can read about it yourself in John 8:12 through John 10:42; because these are the works Yeshua did, and the celebration that He walked in during the Feast of Heart Dedication – Hanukkah.

Yeshua declared, “I am the Light of the World,” twice during the Feast of Dedication. Hanukkah is also called the Feast of Lights, which is what most people focus on. But, did you know that Yeshua declared “I AM” thirteen times during the eight-day Hanukkah Feast? Please refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2014/12/02/yeshuas-full-government-declaration-during-hanukkah/ andhttps://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/12/02/full-government-of-god-prize-immortality/.

One of the Hanukkah “I AM” statements Yeshua pronounced: “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I AM He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me” (John 8:28 NASB). Not only did Yeshua prophetically announce during Hanukkah the way He was to die, lifted up on the Cross of Calvary; but Messiah Yeshua broadcasts forevermore that if His people lift Him up, then they will know “I AM that I AM.”

Don’t get me started! I simply love speaking about “I AM that I AM!” In Exodus 3:14, the Bible tells us that God said to Moses “I AM who I AM.” In the original Hebrew, it has several translations, including “I will be who I will be” – “Hayah.” Hayah is a unique verb that carries a meaning of what was done in the past. Hayah also carries a meaning of what will be done in the furture, but the present tense for this verb does not exist. Instead, it’s given that the verb “to be” (hayah) is just there. Hayah in the present tense is who you are and what you are manifesting at the present moment. It’s like saying “I Robin” where the “am” in “I am Robin” is already understood to exist, and it manifests in what a person is literally doing. It is all of our present realities.

The redemptive state of “hayah” can be simplified to a righteous State of Being that resonates at the same frequency in which it was originally created. Know that the Hebraic root to the concept of righteousness communicates “to be” (i.e., a righteous State of Being).

When the righteous “hayah” manifestation is coupled with the testimony of the spirit, water and blood in a person’s earth according to 1 John 5:8, it puts an exclamation point to a simple kingdom truth: “Little children, let no one deceive you. HE WHO PRACTICES RIGHTEOUSNESS IS RIGHTEOUS, JUST AS HE IS RIGHTEOUS” (1 John 3:7 NKJV). How can we say that what we do doesn’t matter? “Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right” (Proverbs 20:11 KJV). Yes. Righteousness is a state of being; but don’t forget that our actions will line up with our words when we practice righteousness. Everyone knows that people who don’t do what they say are hypocrites. “Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:7-9 NKJV). 

Remember that the Father’s Gateway of Awe is His portal of entry into Hanukkah for His people. Never forget that YHVH’s manifestation of perfection is love. The holy, reverential fear of the Lord flows from His perfect love. Therefore, His perfection is not perfectionism. Our loving and gracious Heavenly Father is not after yucky legalistic perfectionism, so let’s embrace His great grace, as we journey unto the perfection of being made into the image of the Messiah.

All of God’s people need to be able to rightly assess how our actions line up with our words. Then, we need to evaluate how our words line up with the plumb line of righteousness Himself – the Word of God – Messiah Yeshua. When the three witnesses in our earth (spirit water, blood) are united and perfectly one with the three that are one in heaven, the righteous I AM (Hayah) becomes manifest.

“Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is He who came by water and blood – Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the spirit, the water and the blood; and these three agree as one” (1 John 5:5-8 NKJV). 

Behold, I AM who I AM!!!
