R. Dennis Richards connects the celebration of Chanukah with the original story of the Maccabean revolt under persecution, the Messiah’s quoting of Daniel’s prophecies, and how it all comes together to form a picture what will happen in the end times. This a pertinent and timely message for everyone that professes to believe in the God of Israel. Because technical difficulties prevented recording, only the notes for this message could be presented here. Chanukah: A Picture of the End Times Notes for a message by Rabbi Dennis Richards, 12/23/17 There is more to this eight-day holiday which has been called Chanukah, while it is never actually mention in the Tenach yet part of Chanukah’s is in the single mention of Chanukah found in the Book of John where it is called by its English name, “The Feast of Dedication.” Yet Chanukah actually holds a big, prophetic end-time revelation. And as the years go by and time progresses we draw closer and closer to biblical prophecies that will be fulfilled. • Chanukah presents a preview of end times events mentioned in the Tenach and the teaching of Messiah. It tells of the spirit that will envelop the world, and the strategies for believers’ endurance more than any other biblical holiday. Many Christians and secular Jews have no idea why this is also significant for them and yet the Orthodox involved in Cabbala understand. Messiah gave us a clue to its mystery validated in the Book of John where it mentions that He celebrated Chanukah. John 10:22-23 states, when He “walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch” during the “Feast of Dedication.” • The word Chanukah means “dedication” and revolves the continued Salvation of Israel.” Yeshua takes us to go back the 9th chapter of Daniel to see the mystery of how Daniel’s prophecy ties into Chanukah. It is here where when the 70-year period of Israel’s captivity is virtually over, and the return to their own land is imminent. It is with this hope, Daniel begins to pray for himself and his people. His prayer of confession and petition is answered, but certainly not in a way Daniel would have expected. • YHVH sent Gabriel, His messenger, to give Daniel the understanding and insight into the vision Daniel had received, enabling him to see the near future in perspective. • He wanted Daniel to understand the relationship between Israel’s soon return to the land and the rebuilding of the temple in the light of His promise to restore His people and establish His kingdom on the earth. • He wanted Daniel to know that Israel’s imminent return to the land was not the coming of the kingdom of God. The angel Gabriel is a messenger who was entrusted to deliver several important messages on YHVH’s behalf. Gabriel appears to at least three people in the Bible, the first was to the prophet Daniel (Daniel 8:16). Gabriel’s appearance and announcement provides...Read More »
