Isaiah 62
I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night:
ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.


Psalm 122:6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: may they prosper who love you. 



Psalm 132:13-18

For Adonai has chosen Tziyon, He has wanted it as his home.  "This is my resting-place forever, I will live here because I so much want to.  I will bless it with plenty of meat, I will give its poor their fill of food.  Its cohanim (priests) I will clothe with salvation, and its faithful will shout for joy.  I will make a king sprout there from David's line and prepare a lamp for my Anointed One.  His enemies I will clothe with shame, but on Him there will be a shining crown."

Deuteronomy 16:11

And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place his name there.

Beit Yeshua gathered on Friday, December 12, 2014, in Chuck & Janice's home in Lincolnton, NC, to celebrate the Biblical Festival of Hanukkah/Chanukah.  The story of Hanukkah tells how the Jews, under the leadership of Matthias and Judas Maccabees, rebelled against the Syrians and reclaimed the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem - reminding us that God is always with those who seek to do His will.  The Feast of Hanukkah is also called the Feast of Dedication as well as the Festival of Lights.  The New Covenant recounts how Yeshua/Jesus celebrated the Feast of Hanukkah.

John 10:22-25 
And it was at Jerusalem the Feast of Dedication, and it was winter.  And Jesus walked in the Temple in Solomon's Porch.  Then came the Jews round about him and said unto him, "How long dost thou make us to doubt?  If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly."  Jesus answered them, "I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me."


Each family was asked to bring a Hanukkah menorah and two candles to light in honor of the first night of Hanukkah


Early arrivals chatted while waiting for others to arrive



Janice and Chuck said blessings over the Shabbat candles, bread and wine

The Hanukkah lights illuminated the room and blessed all those who were present
