HANUKKAH DEVOTION READING NIGHT 7 – “The Place of Miracles”

h7-columns

“The apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade” (Acts 5:12).

Yeshua walked in Solomon’s Colonnade during the feast of Hanukkah, declaring to the Jews that His miraculous works plainly revealed He was the Messiah. Israel’s priests had previously concluded that when they heard the testimony of someone being healed of the incurable disease of leprosy, it would be an obvious sign of the Messiah . . . that He had come. And not only that, but the Messiah also would restore the sight of someone born blind. One born lame would walk. When John the Baptist asked Jesus: Are you the One? Yeshua sent back the message: Tell John the blind see, the leper is cleansed, the lame walk and the captives are set free (Matt. 11:4-5).

All the passages that speak of Solomon’s Colonnade tell us it’s a place of miracles. Acts 5:12 informs us that all the believers met together at Solomon’s Colonnade. It’s the place where the apostles performed many miracles, signs, and wonders among the people. It is also the place where a beggar, who had been crippled from birth, held on to Peter and John and was healed (Acts 3:11). Solomon’s Colonnade is also called Solomon’s Porch. It was built by Solomon on the east side of the temple. From this side, the glory fills God’s temple. A porch or portico is a covered area adjoining an entrance to a building and usually has a separate roof. Spiritually speaking, it represents the place where a believer already has entered the temple (i.e., a relationship with God), but not the building (i.e., become a permanent dwelling place for God).

The celebration of Hanukkah holds several keys for end-time believers. Hanukkah is celebrated in winter when things look asleep, just as all ten virgins in Matthew 25 were asleep because “the Bridegroom was a long time in coming” (Matt. 25:5). By the way, both the wise and foolish virgins are representative of believers. Hanukkah emphasizes God’s people celebrating both a miraculous military victory over heathen oppressors, by a small, ragtag righteous remnant as well as cleaning out and rededicating our temples to the Lord.

Notice how Acts 5:12 articulates: “And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade.” I believe that this statement is prophetic. I see eternity looking back into earth’s time-space continuum and the heavenly throng’s acknowledgement of it: All the believers in the Lord Jesus Christ meet in Solomon’s Colonnade in a spiritual sense when they celebrate the Biblical Feast of Dedication in Zion.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

1. What’s the name of the place in the Temple area where believers met? (Answer: Solomon’s Colonnade)

2. What went on there? (Answer: Miracles, signs and wonders)

3. Can you tell us of any miracles you’ve seen or experienced?

About Robin Main

Robin's premier quest is to love people and love God with all her heart, soul & strength, because without love we all are nothing. After making a vow to Jesus's face during a personal epiphaneous appearance, she wrote a book -- SANTA-TIZING: What's wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up" to share the mysteries she discovered while searching for where Christmas comes from. There are revelations in SANTATIZING that you will not find anywhere else. So throw away the template for Christmas books and come walk on the kingdom side in an examination of America's most loved holiday. Critical thinking is a must while looking through this lens of history and Scripture. You'll be intrigued and enlightened. What's wrong with Christmas? Plenty. This book shines light on various troubling issues in celebrating a Christian Christmas. How to clean it up? This will be determined by you and your family. Since we have an abundance of traditions, memories, and reasons to stay just the way we are (and possibly miss out on becoming part of His Pure & Spotless Bride), SANTA-TIZING primarily explores the valley of the shadows. Please know that in God's Kingdom no person is forced to do anything against their will. Give em heaven!!!
