The Prophetic FestivalChanukah: 12-15-2012.I.
 
It becomes evident from the study of Torah that YHVH often hides things fromthe casual observer.
When we‟re able to remove the cloak of mystery, a
s in thecase of Chanukah, we see overtones prophesying of the coming Anti-Messiah,additionally, the story of Esther comes to mind (that links us to Chanukah)where we see connections to another overlooked festival, Purim, whichprophetically sets the stage for the Anti-Messiah: a hint in particular is seen inthe root of her name which
means „hidden‟. Ironically, the Sages teach Esther is
crowned Queen on the 7
th
day of the festival of Chanukah, which corresponds tothe 1
st
day of the 10
th
month of Tevet. The Book of Esther begins with the
ominous phrase, “Now it came to pass”
; [

] which has become a code phraseindicating that trouble follows on its heels. Esther is crowned Queen during thereign of Ahasuerus also known as Xerxes, whose reign is ended by the Greekarmy of Alexander the Great. These two nations Persia (Iran) #6539,Parac (to divide, split in two) and Greece (which includes parts of Iraq, Syria,etc.) figure prominently in Eschatology. In fact, the ancient Achaemenid PersianEmpire (Iran) is seen in the current President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad whosepresent and last term ends 8/3/2013. His original family name was Saborjhian aknown JEWISH lineage! The Samech-Bet-Resh root, sabor, #5452, is a verbmeaning to think, to do, and to change something from what it was and is seen in
 
Dan. 7:25! (The Anti-Messiah will seek to change times and laws) If we spellsabor with the Shin instead of the Samech, it forms #7665, sabar, a verbmeaning to break to burst into pieces, to birth destruction. The suffix appended,
Jhian, is Arabic and infers, „the world‟! Thus, literally,
it is translated,
“To
bring ruin or destruction that will birth Change in
the World” 
. Ironically, Ahmadinejadhas expressed his intent of fomenting such chaos on the earth in order to usherin the 12th Imam (al-Mahdi). Al Mahdi is said to be joined by Jesus (who neverdied) at Mecca. The Mahdi will instruct the restored prophet Jesus to prayproperly, and Jesus will then instruct his mistaken followers to acknowledge andsubmit to Allah and Mohammed as his prophet.What does this have to do with Chanukah? If we recall another of its names,
“Feast of Dedication”, then the connection becomes evident for it was during this
season that the Temple and altar were desecrated by the Greeks and ordereventually restored after the Maccabean revolt where the Temple/Altar are againdedicated for service. Chanukah becomes a prophetic bridge linking past and
 
future, if we can understand its hidden message. Some of these clues are foundhidden in John 10: 22, 23, where we find Yahshua entering the temple duringthis festival. Remember, He is the Light of the World (Jn. 18:12) theMENORAH, Light of YHVH and following the pattern of Chanukah, He is goingto be restored to the Temple! It is during this discourse that Yahshua firstidentifies Himself as Messiah who will be offered on the very altar desecrated byAntiochus and later by the Anti-Messiah! As in the Miracle of Chanukah thisLight will be extinguished with no source from which to draw additionaloil/shemen only to be rekindled again by the Oil/Shemen/Word/Seed of YHVH.The Oil for the Lamp was gone, and there would be none until the next olivegrowing season
 – 
yet, Once Yahshua dies there is no man/oil/candle from whichto relight His extinguished flame. (Prov. 20: 27
 the spirit of man is the candle of YHVH 
) However, Yahshua is pierced at the Oil press of Gethsemane to providethe miracle needed to keep the perpetual Lamp burning!II.
 
Now, shall we look closer at this festival of Dedication? Chanukah is from theroot of #2596, chanak, to dedicate or train. Its most famous appearance isin Proverbs 22: 6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, hewill not depart from it.
The English word train or dedicate is used here
 – 
chanak, which has a gematriaof 78, the same as #4039, megillah meaning scroll, as in the Scroll of Esther! The
Mem prefix indicates „from or out of‟, the source or origin, while the root is from
#1556, galal, to roll, to roll off or away and is the root of Golgotha
 – 
Gulgoleth. Iam convinced this was the location of the Miphqad gate where the census ornumbering of Israel occurs, once more bringing us to the role of Yahshua as theMenorah restored.Now,
let‟s
note the word child in the above verse, #5288, na`ar, it is
rendered, youth, child & servant. What isn‟t often noticed is the two
-letter root,Nun-Resh which forms a Hebrew word meaning LAMP
 – 
Niyr! The gematria of this word
 – 
320 connects us to Gen. 3:7 and the word for naked, #5903,
 `eyrom
. Remember Adam was the first “Lamp” of YHVH in the earth. When he
sins, his lamp is extinguished
 – 
the Temple is desecrated. The Abomination of Desolation has occurred! The Temple-Man dies! The Hebrew phrase is seen inDan. 11 & 12 and Matt. 24

ha Shiqquts Meshomem. Thisrequires a new source of illumination
 – 
the Blood of the Lamb, to rededicate thisTemple-Man, and thus the pattern begins!
Blood is the life, thus when Yahshua‟s
 
blood is poured out, it is the life
 – 
breath, Word
 – 
Hebrew of YHVH that is
released and disseminated by the Ruach, into each „illuminated‟ Believer!
Zeph.3:9 tells us the Pure language
 – 
oil is being restored to the Lamp
 – 
Adam (thespiritual temple man) while verse 10
declares, “

”, ma ebar
lenahari Cush. Ebar is the root of Hebrew, nahar means stream or river thatflows (like oil flowing?) and Cush is translated DARK-BLACK! The languagewill restore the Oil to the Menorah
 – 
the Hebrews who once flowed with this oiland were desecrated, made dark, the daughters/Bride who were dispersed,#6327,

puwts, to be scattered to overflow, will bring an offering, a minchah,#4503,
minchah, the two-letter root is the Nun-Chet, spelling Noach, torest.Back to Prov. 22:6
Next, we have the word „way‟, #
1870, Derek, a way or path. This word hasa gematria of 224 which connects us to two powerful Hebrew words, #1798,Dakar, a ram for sacrifice & #4662, mipqad, miphqad, the gate and/or the altarwhere the census is taken and the Red Heifer is sacrificed which is whereYahshua is executed. The
next part of the phrase is: …he should go…which in
Hebrew is spelled

, Ayin-Lamed is a preposition here meaning up, upon,
but it can also be a Proper Noun meaning Most High! We‟re familiar with Peh
-Yod, Pey meaning Mouth. If we stop here and are familiar with Tabernacleconstruction and John 14: 6
[I am the Way…] we realize
this verse is describingmore than just teaching children the way of Torah, and in fact, is hiding themessage of Chanukah: Dedicate a Lamp in the Way (The Place where the BrazenAltar stood!) who will be the Mouth of the Most High!Next we have the word translated old, #2204, zaqen, it is translated old,aged, however the Zayin prefixed to it can infer seed, while Qof-Nun is the rootof Cain, the first offspring of The Serpent. The next word is translated depart,#5493,
cuwr, to turn aside, be rejected, be taken away or removed. The
sentence seems to stop at …
the way he should go…
and then a subtle change
occurs. Is it the child who returns when old or is it possible that Lamp isn‟t taken
away or removed, though the Seed of Cain

Antiochus or the Anti-Messiahcome?! To add further intrigue, Gen. 4:17 instructs us of the beginning of thecounterfeit lineage of Cain through which the Anti-Messiah will come, and how
