The lights of Hanukkah are overshadowing everyone’s Winter One-der-land this year, because the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) starts at sundown December 24, 2016 and goes until sundown January 1, 2017.
“Let no man therefore judge you in regard … to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17 NASB).
Even though Biblical Feasts are precious components of His Word, they are only “a mere shadow of what is to come.” Messiah Yeshua is the substance behind all the Biblical Feasts. His Spring Feasts speak of Jesus’ first coming and His Fall Feasts speak of His Second Coming (Lev 23). The two winter feasts mentioned in God’s Word – Hanukkah and Purim – portray God’s people’s journey to becoming His Bride. “Just as the Spirit of Living God has seven flows that manifests in nine fruits and gifts, so do the Feasts of the Lord.” This is the one-liner God gave me about the Feasts of the Lord in His Kingdom.
Just as our earth spins around its axis and the sun in a complete circle every year, so have the Biblical Feasts been created for His Bride to “chuwl” (spin), so His people can meet with Him at His designated time at His designated place so His Bride can become married to Him. God’s people will literally embody the marks of time: “Let no man therefore judge you … in respect of a holy day … which are a shadow of things to come; but THE BODY IS OF CHRIST” (Colossians 2:16-17 KJV).
Do you know which aspect of the Lord Himself has put in place the marks of His time? It’s the keeper of time – Metatron – who is the fullness of God bodily. The righteous reality of Metatron is that Metatron is the undifferentiated state of the Messiah, which is made up of the Mature Head of Yeshua and the fully mature members of His Body. When Scriptures says that the marks of time that set His people’s years, months and weeks (festival, new moon, Sabbath) are “shadows of things to come,” know that God created man as His shadow. When God created man in His own divine image, the Hebrew word “tzelem” is used and is derived from “tzel,” which means “shadow.”
Therefore, one of the glorious interpretations of a “shadow of things to come” is the Body of Christ maturing and becoming the perfectly pure manifestation of the One New Man in Christ (Messiah) – Metatron. See Ephesians 2:15; 4:13. This is the Messianic Light of Hanukkah overshadowing the Winter One-der-land of the World this year.
