12-21-2012- WINTER BEGINS-FEAST OF DEDICATION


JOHN 10: 22 = AND IT WAS AT JERUSALEM, THE FEAST OF THE DEDICATIONMAND IT WAS WINTER. 


"REMARKS"

I AM GLAD WINTER CAME IN LIKE A LAMB AND THAT IN ISRAEL, THEY ARE CELEBRATING THE FEAST OF DEDICATION. THIS FEAST IS ABOUT JUST THAT, DEDICATING A RENEWAL OF SOMETHING PREVIOUSLY DEDICATED. IT IS ALSO A TIME LIKE IN SOME ASPECTS LIKE CHRISTMAS, BUT MORE HOLY AND NOT IDOLIZED, WHEREIN THEY ILLUMINATED THEIR HOUSES.

IT WAS DURING NEHEMIAH'S TIME WHEN IT WAS PROMINENTLY BEGUN, SINCE JERUSALEM WAS IN RUINS AND NEHEMIAH LED THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE BROKEN DOWN WALLS OF JERUSALEM. 

NEHEMIAH WAS RELEASED FROM HIS CAPTIVITY FROM THE KING OF BABYLON, TO COME TO JERUSALEM TO HELP LEAD THE RECONSTRUCTION. WHEN THE WALLS WERE REBUILT, THEY HAD THIS  DEDICATION OF THE WALLS.

THE TEMPLES OF OLDEN DAYS, WHICH WERE BUILT WITH STONES AND BRICKS, WHEREIN LAY THE FEAST OF DEDICATION, WHEREIN SOLOMON DEDICATED THE TEMPLE IN ITS ORIGINAL GLORY.

TODAY GODS, YAH'WEHS, TEMPLES ARE FLESH AND BLOOD TEMPLES, NOT STONE AND BRICKS.

THIS IS THE MORE APPROPRIATE CELEBRATION OF THE BORN AGAIN BELIEVER'S, WHO KNOW NOT TO OBSERVE CHRISTMAS, WITH ITS IDOLS AND VANITY OF PERSONS, BUT TO ENJOY THE FEAST OF DEDICATION, WHICH OCCURS ON THE 25TH OF DECEMBER, (CASLEU),THE 9TH MONTH IN THE JEWISH YEAR, COMMENCING WITH SINGING AND PRAISING GOD, YAH'WEH, FOR HIS RECONSTRUCTIVE POWER IN TEMPLES, NOT MADE WITH STONES AND BRICKS, BUT FROM HEAVEN, WHEREIN EVERY BORN AGAIN BELIEVER, IS THE TEMPLE OF GOD, YAH'WEH, AND GOD, YAH'WEH, RESIDES IN EACH BORN AGAIN BELIEVER.

THIS IS WHAT I CALL THE REAL FEAST OF DEDICATION, WHEREIN THOSE HAD PROFESSED CHRIST AND WHO HAVE STRAYED FROM CHRIST, AND FROM THE TRUTH, AND FROM THE HOLINESS OF GOD, YAH'WEH, ARE NOW REDEDICATING THEIR LIVES AGAIN TO GOD, YAH'WEH, AND LIVING IN PURITY AND HOLINESS, OF BODY AND MIND, GIVING THANKSGIVING TO GOD, YAH'WEH, FOR HIS MERCY AND GRACE.
