Let see from the scriptures if Hanukkah is biblical…
Another way to remember this tradition of men is when the Jews tried to stone the Lord Jesus Christ in the winter from the gospel of John.
John 10:22-34 KJB – And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the 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. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
Essentially king Solomon (a man) started the feast of the dedication with the first temple being dedicated and the lost Jews today have twisted it. The Lord walked on Solomon’s porch because he (king Solomon) dedicated the first temple. Remember the feasts the Lord himself created with Moses. Truly, the feast of the dedication of the first temple was from king Solomon, not God.
And think of this simple fact, what temple do they have today to dedicate? And where did 9 candlesticks come from? It’s 7 with the temple menorah.
Satan is SUBTIL.
Genesis 3:1 KJV – Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.
THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS.
Revelation 12:9 KJV – that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
Be not DECEIVED by traditions of men, Solomon is a man that made the feast, not God.
And if you are specific, does the scripture in John 10 say Jesus kept it? “And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.” Walked is different from kept the feast of the dedication. Pay attention. THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS.
