Obama desecrate the Hanukkah festival

In front of a laughing crowd, Obama lift up an abomination that will create desolation. A thanksgiving turkey as a base for a Hanukkah lamp.

In the merger of a turkey and the Jewish festival of light. Obama shows his true colors.

Many Christians have no clue about what the Hanukkah festival is all about. An anti-semitic king had put pigs into the Temple in Jerusalem, and tried to destroy the Jewish faith and culture.

After the war that followed, the winning Maccabean’s had to clean up the temple from this abomination that created desolation.

On the 5th of December 2013, President Barack Hussein Obama celebrated Hanukkah in the White House.  Bragging and laughing, the US President speak about merging the Thanksgiving feast with Hanukkah, presenting to the World a new religious symbol. A Thanksgiving turkey, as a base of a Hanukkha lamp. Obama calls it “The Menurky”.

Source of the above photo is the UK newspaper, The Telegraph.

The Obamas celebrate the fests of all the "Holy religions".
The Obama’s celebrate the feasts of all the “Holy religions”.

In this way, Obama copies the anti-semitic king. He desecrate a Jewish festival. And most amazingly. No one seems to bother. Not even the Liberal American Jews, who are present in front of the shining smartphones of the press.

Take a look at the message is this video published by the White House:

The Bible says many antichrists have walked into the World. Obama seems to be a man who fits into all kinds of faiths.

To all Christians Obama pretend to be a Christian, to a Muslim he portray Islam as the true religion of peace. And in a bid to convince the Jewish people about his true friendship, Obama celebrate both passover in the White House, and preach on the events of Hanukkah.

Do not be surprised if, in 2014 , the World leaders will birth an event, that has never been seen on Earth before. Both the Jesuit Pope and Obama traveling together to Jerusalem, to hail a new “peace agreement”.

There they will face both Abu Mazen (PLO leader, alias Mammoud Abbas) and Benjamin Netanyahu, signing an historic “peace agreement”. Than the age of judgment can begin. The false prophet and the final man of lawlessness have been reveled.

Lets wait and watch.

  1. Shabbat Shalom All,
    I wish more Christians would return to the roots of the faith, that they claim as their own. Many Christians think that Yeshua started some new religion, He didn’t! What He did was to fulfill the prophecies that were written about Him in the scriptures.

    All of the Spring Feasts were fulfilled with His first coming. All of the Fall Feasts be fulfilled with His second coming. If you don’t know these Feasts then you will not know what to look for. Obama’s disgusting little Hanukkah presentation, proves the point.

    When Yeshua came the first time, to his own, with the exception of a believing remnant, they did not recognize Him. I fear that it might be just the reverse with His second coming. The Jews will recognize Him, and the bulk of Christian Church will not.

    The blinders are being removed from off of Jewish eyes, and they are beginning to recognize Yeshua as the Messiah. While this is happening, a large part of the Church is going into apostacy.

    Many Christians, do not realize that they are grafted into Israel, not the other way around. Those who are ignorant of the roots of their faith, and have little or no understanding of the prophetic significance of the Feasts of the Lord are in great danger, and are left out in the open for deception.

    Obama insults their faith, and they can’t see it. Remember, the Menorah was designed by HaShem, and it is in present day Turkey where Satan’s throne is. Revelation. It is likely going to be Turkey who will head the rise of the last Caliphate. The implications of what Obama just did, are staggering.

    Revelation tells us that Satan’s throne is in Pergamos. Yeshua says to the church in Pergamos, “I know where you dwell where Satan’s throne is.” He tells us just where to look, and it is not to the Vatican in Rome. This is not to say that the Vatican won’t play a role in the end times, but, we know exactly where to look for Satan’s throne.

    Can you imagine the blowback that would have happened if during one of the Muslim’s unholy days, if Obama were to send out invitations to the annual Ramadan dinner, with the cross and with the star of David on them? The Muslims would put a fatwah out on Obama, and then they would engage in a global murdering spree.

    Please, learn about your Hebrew Roots, so that you will not be easily deceived!

    1. Dear deniseandros

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Since Jesus the Messiah celebrated all the Biblical feasts, also Hanukkah, you would suppose that most Christians at least knew what these festival were all about. But 90 per cent of Christians, have no clue. They have not heard anybody teaching in their fellowship, about Judaism. The faith of the Messiah and his family.

      When I see Obama making fun, and mixing up this festival, I see an unclean man. A blasphemer. Just like other unclean people who try their best to abolish the Jewish faith, or mix it up with all kinds of paganism.

      Call me the day Obama makes fun about Muslim Festivals like Eid or Ramzan, or mix up Islam with a Christian festival at the door of the White House.

      1. I was just listening to a youtube video by Messianic Rabbi, Steven DeNoon, I might have spelled his name wrong. Anyway, he was reflecting on the mixed multitude who left Egypt. It was about 600,000 who left, everything that they needed, including mannah, the food of angels was provided for them, and they were eye witnesses to miracles, and still they complained and lacked faith.
        Only two, from the original group were allowed to enter into the promised land, just Caleb and Joshua. This meant that 600,980 did not make it. These statistics should scare all of us! As the greater exodus is soon to occur. We all need to prepare our hearts and minds for days ahead.

      2. Dear deniseandros

        Shalom, and love in Yeshua.

        We are facing a similar spiritual disaster in this generation too. Probably the last, before the Messiah will return as the Lion of Judah. The Messiah warned us: – Most of the people take the broad road. Only a few shall be willing to make it through the narrow gate. ONLY A FEW.

      3. Shabbat Shalom Ivar,
        Obama’s love of Islam is glossed over, if not totally ignored by most of the “Church.” Daily, they see Muslims burning churches, beheading both Jews, and Christians, rapeing women and children, among other atrocities.

        Obama is calling for Israel to surrender more land, to her tormentors, including Jerusalem. Christians see a president siding with the enemies of HaShem, and with the enemies of His children, both Jew and Gentile, alike. But for a very few, they seem not to notice. I wonder what they will say, in their own defence, when Yeshua asks them why; for Zion’s sake, they did not open their mouths in defence of their brethern?

        The day of judgement is fast approaching, and most of the western church is silent, believing that a pretrib rapture will remove them from the earth before the tribulation starts.

        I have a news flash for the sleeping church, for these dying Christians, the tribulation has already started.

  2. Thank you Denise. The first Thanksgiving in America was celebrated by true Christians. It has turned into evil. So called Christians don’t even know about the Christian meaning of Thanks giving. Before Obama desolated the Jewish Festival of Lights with it. It was a day to thank the Lord God for His provisions. Look at Passover and Christmas, same thing. So called Christians have been blinded by the little devices in their hands, sports, etc. They don’t even care to know if they are warned by us. “And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, we grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off; and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: FOR IF GOD SPARED NOT THE NATURAL BRANCHES, TAKE HEED LEST HE ALSO SPARE NOT THEE.” Romans 11:17-21

    1. Hi nannette,

      Thanksgiving is a secular holiday that is only celebrated in America. I think that it was Abraham Lincoln who actually made Thanksgiving a national holiday.

      Obama on the other hand can’t stand anything that gives glory to the GOD of Israel, or to His Son, Yeshua. But, any of the Muslim unholy days, which give glory to that demon god Allah, to them, he gives reverence, honor, and glory.

      If you want to get a real good tutorial in the Feasts of the Lord, the same Feasts that the Jews have been celebrating for thousands of years. There is a Jewish Pastor named Mark Biltz, his web address is elshaddaiministries.net, or you can always google Mark Biltz.
      On his web site you used to be able to watch these 4 Feasts of the Lord CD’s for free, and I think that you still can. I suggest that you buy them, they are only $25 dollars and they come with a bonus CD about the 4 prophetic, blood red moons CD. This package also comes with a complete study guide. You only get these extras if you buy them directly from his web site. You will be blessed.

      You will discover the prophetic nature of GOD’s Feasts. It’s kind of ironic, the Jews have always celebrated these same Feast and all but a remnant failed to recognized Yeshua at His first coming. Now only a remnant of Christians recognize that Yeshua will be returning to earth to fulfill the Fall Feasts, at His second coming.
      While the Jews on the other hand, are coming to faith in yeshua in huge numbers. While a huge portion of the Christian body of believers are going into apostacy.

      I’ll share one little prophetic nugget with you, you can find it on these CD’s. It is during the Feasts of Yom Kippur when we will receive our white wedding garments.
      This is Feast of Atonement, for ALL OF ISRAEL, both JEW and GENTILE, who are now one in Messiah. It is from this Feast, that the custom of wearing white at weddings actually started.

      In order to receive your wedding garment you must be at the Feast. So you should be celebrating Yom Kippur. Do you remember the man who showed up at the Wedding Feast without his wedding garment? Yeshua had him thrown out, and he was casted into outer darkness. Matthew 22,1-14. This is how important GOD’s Feast days are. Pay special attention to Yeshua’s warning; “many are called, but few are chosen.” This sends chills down my spine!

      1. Hi Denise
        You are Jewish. Is that correct?. The thanksgiving day celebration, was originally observed by the pilgrims as a time to give thanks to almighty God for his provision and protection for them. As most religious celebrations go, thanksgiving is no different. With its parades in New York City to the consuming
        Of a lot of food and wAtching football it still for me and my family is a time set aside to give thanks to God for his blessing upon us.
        It is not the only time to give thanks as we should offer up a sacrifice of thanksgiving every day. And this I do. Every prayer to the father is in part a prayer of thanksgiving. Do not bash the thanksgiving day celebration. Yes for many it is all about parades,eating in gluttonness fashion and watching football.
        But for the true believer and lover of Jesus it is an attitude of thanksgiving and gratitude. American Jews that I know and I only know a few celebrate thanksgiving as it is American tradition. They also celebrate Hanukkah in remembrance of its origin but also have secularized it. Christmas while it is secularized for me and my family it is first and foremost the remembrance of Immanuel. God with us. A rembrance that God keeps his word as he said through the prophets that he would bring to Israel her messiah and savior and king. He did that.
        While we still get caught up in the secularized Christmas.
        And it is a battle within to not be consumed with it, we still in our minds and hearts know what this season of celebration is about.
        I don’t know what you do during this time but please do not
        Be condemning of those of us who try to in the midst of its seclarization work at keeping things in or correct John wrote in his book of John chapter 1. He (the word who was made flesh, Jesus) came to his own. (His people, Israelites,Jews,) but his own did not receive him. But as many that did,(obviously some did) to them he gave the power to become the sons or children of God. What was the power that enabled them to become the children of God. Obviously they were not his children unless they received him and were given this power. I submit it is the power of rebirth, which is spiritual, and the power of adoption which is legal power by God. Those of his own who did not receive him
        And those who call themselves his own today are really not his children unless they receive the power he gives them when they receive /believe him. It is the same for anyone. The greatest celebration that we who believe and have received him can
        Do is to be thankful and live a life of thanks for what Jesus has done.

      2. Dear Todd.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        There is nothing wrong in celebrating Thanksgiving. It is a US tradition.

        There is nothing wrong in celebrating Christmas, as long as you celebrate the birth of Jesus every day.

        There is noting wrong in celebrating Hanukkah. It is a New Testament feast.

        What is wrong, is to mix up a Jewish Festival of Hanukkah with paganism. This feast has its origin 160 B.C, and is based on the victory over antisemitism and bids to pollute the Temple in Jerusalem with pigs. The Maccabees won the war that followed, and the Jewish people survived the bid on their culture and faith. God’s plan for salvation could continue, till the true light of the World came in flesh: Jesus the Messiah.

        There are many “reformed” Jews, who neither have respect for the Torah, nor do they support Zionism and a united Jerusalem. They live as any pagan secular American, and will laugh together with Obama. The US President is a man of all faiths, and absolutely no faith at all. A lawless man, who proclaim that all religions are leading us to the same “god”.

  3. For Jews in America, to combine the two events of thanksgiving and hanukkah is not a problem because Jews in America celebrate thanksgiving as well. In America the turkey brings to mind thanksgiving. The attack at this time of year is on the nativity scene, which is a symbol of Christianity. Very little opposition is given to the display of the menorah. There is some but very small amount. Mostly by Jews. Christians are tolerant of other displays, but their is intolerance to the Christian display of the nativity. The ACLU a Jewish controlled group never files suit toward the display of menorah but it files many suits against the nativity. Personally. I have no problem with the display of the menorah. What I do have a problem with is those who want to exclude the nativity in the public square

    1. Dear Todd.

      Shalom.

      Again you do not understand anything. Thanksgiving is a feast that started in 1621 A.D.

      Obama was not celebrating the Thanksgiving, but Hanukkah. This is a feast that has been celebrated by Jews for more than 2.000 years. Jesus, the Messiah, who you claim to know, celebrated this feast. It is a New Testament feast, just like Passover.

      Obama could have taken the opportunity to explain what this feat is all about. Than the gross mocking of this feast would have become more obvious for all of us. Hanukkah is a feast, were an unclean animal had polluted the Temple in Jerusalem. There was a war because of this blasphemy, and the Temple had to be cleansed and dedicated one more time.

      1. Dear Todd.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        I do not expect that many Christians gets this, soaked into Catholicism and replacement theology as we are.

        Where is the teaching in our Churches, about Hanukkah?

        I can understand that Purim might be a little bit off screen, since it is mentioned in the book of Esther. But Hanukkah is a New Testament feast, found in the gospel of John:

        John 10:22:

        Then came the Festival of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon’s Colonnade. The Jews who were there gathered round him, saying, ‘How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.’

        (end of scripture).

        Please note “It was winter”. In Jerusalem the winters can be very could, and the animals would be in the mangers. Not out on the fields of Bethlehem.

        Why is it not mentioned, that is was winter when Jesus was born? It is not mentioned a single place in the entire Bible?

        Could it be that he was born around the Feast of Tabernacles in October? It would be easy for the Roman Occupiers of this land, to arrange for a census in Jerusalem when millions of Jews came home to their own native village. Most of the Biblical villages are located around Jerusalem, a days walk or so away.

        It would be wise to arrange for a census when Jews celebrated a feast. It would be difficult to force Jews to travel around 25th of December, when there is no Jewish feast. And cold winds and even snow are the normal climate on the 700 meters high Mountains of Zion.

        Catholicism is fraud. It was fraud in 325 A.D, and it is fraud today.

      2. Dear Todd.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        Yes it is. I hope you want to learn more about this Jewish festival. It is the festival of light. Jesus told the Jews, and all of us” “I am the light of the world”. That I why I can see the Messiah in this festival, also.

        If Jesus was born i September, and we roll back nine months. Miriam, the Jewish mother of Jesus, might have became pregnant by the Holy Ghost during Hannukah. A festival she celebrated.

      3. Ivar,
        Peace and good tidings to you and your family.
        It is quite interesting. Your last comment. And yes I will do some more study on this. Thank you.

      4. Hi Ivar,
        I just wanted to share some insights regarding Obama’s desecration of the menorah. The menorah is the most enduring symbol given by GOD to the world. He designed it. Ex 25:31-40.

        The pure oil that is used in the menorah represents the Holy Spirit. The Lampstands (menorahs) are the 7 churches. Rev 1: 12-20, The seven lampstands are the seven churches.
        I saw the seven golden lampstands and in the middle of the lampstands was the Son of Man.
        Rev 4:5, the seven menorahs represent the seven Spirits of God.
        The menorah also lit the hallway that led to the Holy of Holies. It was the only light allowed in.

        Obama does everything that he can to send out hate messages to the God of the universe. Whether it is sending out a picture of himself talking with Netanyahu, while showing the soles of his shoes, or by mocking the bible, or by making fun of the menorah. Just try to imagine his anger if someone were to insult Mohammad. Yet he delights in insulting everything that is God’s.

        Is: 14;13, I will set my throne above God’s stars. Obama’s actions are but a prelude to what he intends to accomplish in the near future. If not by him, then by the one who will follow him. Either way the message is clear.

        So far, Obama has not desecrated the actual Temple Menorah, however, his intent is understood. It harkens back to the book of Daniel, when Nebuchanezzer’s son desecrated the Temple vessels. That very night, God demanded his life from him. It is important that the body of Christ study these things, so that they will not be deceived when the real events occur.

  4. Ivar,
    I have read much about Hanukkah. And it’s origin. It is a fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy. I believe I understand the depth of its significance to Jewish people and understand why Jesus celebrated it. He was born Jewish raised Jewish engrained with Jewish tradition as all Jewish children are. I have read where this celebration can begin anytime from our nov 27th to as late as our dec. 23rd. Depending on when it falls on a Hebrew calendar which is based on a lunar cycle. It just so happened to occur at the same time we Americans celebrated thanksgiving. He was attending a Hanukkah celebration in the video, his guest were Jewish and maybe some non Jewish were also there. But his guest were primarily Jewish. The creation of the menurkey was not something he thought up but was created by a Jewish boy who was named in the video and the term thanksgivukkah was also named by I believe a Jewish girl in the audience. With the use of some Witt he explained the miracle of oil by saying that this celebration that was only supposed to last an hour was lasting eight. His audience laughed at that because they understood what he meant. He didn’t
    Have to explain what Hanukkah was or is because his audience knew what it means. Some one has calculated that the overlapp of thanksgiving and Hanukkah will not happen again for 70,000 years.
    I don’t know about that. I personally don’t think that the menurkey
    Was not an abomination as you may see it. It was after all created by a Jewish boy who I believe probably fully understands Hanukkah. While Hanukkah like Christmas has become secularized
    Among Jewish folks in the idea of gift giving as that was not part of the original celebration. That along with the eating of a lot of food
    Has become the main emphasis. I talked with a Jewish girl and mother and wife about this. She has confirmed this. She is a believer. Her family celebrates Hanukkah. They are Jewish. Her husband is not a believer and children are being raised Jewish,,
    A very difficult situation for this mother. I would say that Obama knows what Hanukkah is. He has studied up on it. He is not stupid.
    Like every president he celebrates Hanukkah with Jewish folks.
    He as well as other presidents knows where campaign money comes from. Anyway I am thankful to you Ivar in stirring me to study about Hanukkah. Now I know. The Festival of Lights has become
    Significant in the Christmas season in that you can’t go anywhere
    In America without seeing lights on everything. They signify that Jesus is the light of the world.
    Good day my brother and friend

    1. Todd, dear Todd, it’s been such a while since I’ve been able to be on here yet I’ve kept up…I do want to reply to this statement..I say this with all the love of sister in Christ to you.. if you don’t mind…(I would say that Obama knows what Hanukkah is. He has studied up on it. He is not stupid.Like every president he celebrates Hanukkah with Jewish folks.He as well as other presidents knows where campaign money comes from.)

      Todd..Well he ‘is’ STUPID..if he was smart he’d serve the Lord Jesus Christ and be a Righteous Leader of this Nation but he has chosen to ride the fence before the faces of all religions and side with the Satan Ruled Nations of the World. Though he thinks he is a ruler of his own house and of this Nation he is but another one that is going to find out that he too will come to the ‘same fate’ that all Kings and Rulers have before him that have mocked God and His Anointed One and The Holy One’s Israel’s Nation. Yet we are to pray for him none the less. Perhaps he will repent only God knows if he will or not, all probability he won’t yet that is not our call our call is to pray for all
      My reason for writing this is to tell you in the most loving way I pray you will take heed and not use logic to weigh your choices to believe your decision…but rather let The Holy Ghost try your truths ‘by fire’ and then will they be lasting and not be the ones to cost you many hours of sorrow. Go back over what Ivar told you about the feasts and listen really listen. You can’t get this on one sitting dear. (in short put all you see and hear up on a shelf in your heart and let the good Lord pull it down in his time) but please run to listen to what these golden nuggets are each are
      priceless!
      You should have been shouting about October instead of talking about how smart Obama was, and a single Jewish Mother, …Sweetheart there were so many ‘gold nuggets’ in what Ivar told you in that conversation yall had back and forth, My God!! my mouth watered at the thrill of seeing it let alone of hearing it in my spirit, even though I knew it, it never ceases to thrill me as though it was the first time hearing it for the first time. From the fullness of Jesus’ birth being announced in Isaiah by the Angel in Luke to the October shepherds, and the Romans taxing the Jews….good Lord brother …this is mouth watering, finger licking (smiling) diving off the deep end into the water, stuff coming up Oh my God He is soo Real (smile) and every day gets more and more real better and better you wonder how in the world can your face hold a smile that can smile a bazillion miles wide …and a heart be so big of love you look down at your chest and wonder Oh dear Lord it’s so small how can it be so small and hold so much …Omar the Tent Maker will have to make the Christians clothes (smile) …Wow …Eternal ….realms …The Word ..shows us…we can actually ‘taste, smell, feel, see, hear’…
      Jesus tells us this..also…So beloved brother…back up…you are always in my prayers…I do pray the way I have said any of this has in no way offended you…for I’ve always enjoyed talking to you and with you about Jesus …Your Sister in Christ. Andrea

      1. Todd, a quick note..I ran across this and thought of you, again in prayer in your eagerness of the Word, which is refreshing. As I read this Psalm of David (12) One can get lost in these, shucks all of his word is fantastic (smile) don’t you just love it (smile) anyway…

        The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. Psalm 12:6-7

        David’s generation and so many generations to ours now..”Wow”…how millions have been comforted by this very one over the years….and all of His Word…He’s Alive! Have a great day…

      2. Hi Andrea.
        It is christmas morn here. So merry christmas to you. Thank you for your comments and I have noticed that you have not been commenting for a while. Commenting takes a lot of time and truly is work. Let me clarify the “he is not stupid” statement.
        When it comes to knowing about Hanukkah, I’m sure he has studied up on enough to know( head knowledge) about the celebration. When it comes to wisdom, he hugely lacks that for he does not fear The Lord. And that is as you and I know the beginning of wisdom. Having said that he has not even begun to have wisdom. While I do not agree with him on anything I attempt to find something good about him. It is difficult though.
        Your response is well taken and I always am thankful to The Lord for your rebukes back to me. They do make me think.
        Truly. I hope your Christmas Day is joyous.
        Your bro in Christ Todd

    2. Hi Todd,
      What most Christians fail to realize, is that their cherished holidays are mixing Paganism with GOD’s holy days.

      Easter, is a pagan fertility festival, and it has been mingled with the Lord’s Feast of Passover. Disgusting!

      Christmas is a pagan festival that was based on sun worship. Later, the birth of Jesus was attached to it, in an effort to make it a Christian event.

      GOD has His own Holy convocations. There are seven of them, and they are called the Feasts of the Lord. Not the Jewish Feasts, not the Feast of Israel, they are the Lord’s Feasts Days. All of them point to Jesus, and you have been personally invited. In fact, your invitation has been written in the precious blood of His Son.

      Now, you can choose to attend,you can stay home, or you can continue to attend the pagan rituals.
      What you can not do, is to turn a demonic pagan festival into something sacred.

      Please read about the parable of the wedding. Invitations were sent out, but most refused to attend the event. So GOD extended invitations to others, who were not previously invited.
      I guess you are the only one who can answer which Feasts you will be attending.

      Hanukkah is not a “New Testament Feast,” there is no such thing. Hanukkah is not one of the 7 Feasts of the Lord’s either. However, it is possible, that Yeshua was conceived during Hanukkah.
      Yeshua celebrated it. So enjoy it! I do hope that you will be at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. I hope to be there as well.

  5. Hi Tod,
    I’m not bashing Thanksgiving, I celebrate it myself. I was attempting to convey the importance of celebrating the Feasts of the Lord. These are GOD’s Feast days and they all point to Yeshua.

    For instance, the Feast of Rosh HaShanah; (also known as the Feast of Trumpets) is a picture of the rapture. Rosh Chodesh is the new moon. The Feast of trumpets can not begin until the first sliver of the new moon is spotted over Jerusalem. This is why Rosh Chodesh is a two day feast, because, ‘we do not know the hour or the day.’ when the Bridegroom will return for His bride, so we must ‘keep watch!’ How do we keep watch? It is by celebrating His Holy days.

    Only the Father knows when the new moon will be spotted, and the rapture will begin. You do not want to be one of the foolish virgins, or to be caught without your wedding garment.

    You have been invited to participate in GOD’s holy days. These are the Feasts that are fulfilled by His Son. You should not miss them.

  6. Hi Denise
    Happy New Year
    I have a passage of scripture that I want to get your take on it.
    Col 2:13-17, 20-23
    13. When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of
    your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins.
    14. having cancelled the written code, with its regulations, that was
    against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
    15.And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
    16. Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, new moon celebration or sabbath day.
    17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.
    20. Since you died with Christ to the basic principles of this world, why as though you still belonged to it, do you submit to its rules.
    21. Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!
    22. These are destined to perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings.
    23. Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom
    with their self imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.
    When you get a chance reply back

    1. Dear Todd.

      Shalom.

      You quoted:

      Col 2:13-17, 20-23

      Please keep in mind that this is a message written to Jews, not to gentiles. All Jews who heard or read this messages, knew who Moses was, and had head the message of the Law. When Jesus said, “I am the light”, he did not want people to put out the candles from the synagogues. He is not a physical candles, nor a physical bread, door, rock, etc.

      The Message is that the Law, and all these items tell us the story about the Messiah who is to come TWICE. Many Jews are still were waiting for his, FIRST coming. In Every Sabbath prayer, the Jews have always thanked the “King of Kings”. Amazingly, doing the will of the Messiah, not fully knowing Him.

      Did Jesus, on the cross, do away with all human regulations, and the rules of the past?

      Of course not. He did away with the punishment of our sins. HE IS the lawgiver, and the eternal God who gifted the Jews all these regulations.

      But if you keep on believing that the Messiah is a physical candle, or that He is an image, you have basically not understood anything. If all human regulations are done with, just keep on driving through the streets on red light.

      Todd: Do you know that tens of thousands of Orthodox Jews dance, when they sing: “The Messiah, the Messiah, is coming”. And millions of Christians do not believe that the Messiah is coming back to Jerusalem. What a paradox.

    2. Happy New Year to you too.

      Todd, I love it whenever I’m asked this question. far too many people take these verses out of context.

      Paul is talking to the new Christian converts in Colosse. These new converts have just come out of Paganism. Paul is telling them not to let the people who they had formally worshiped with to pass judgement on them, regarding the keeping of a Feast day, new moon, or a Sabbath, or to pass judgement on what they now eat.

      Before their conversion they were keeping Pagan feasts, and not the Lord’s Feasts, they previously were not keeping the Sabbath, and so on. Now that they are doing these things, it will not go unnoticed. Paul is just telling them what to expect.

      As for the law, Paul is saying that the penalty for breaking the law, with its regulations, has been wiped away, or nailed to the cross, through Christ. Another words, If we continue to keep the Law in an effort to obtain salvation, then we will also be judged by the Law.
      We know that Yeshua is the only one who has ever kept the Law perfectly. If we break any part of the Law then we are guilty of breaking the entire Law.

      Yeshua tells us that not one jot or tittle will pass from the law until ALL is fulfilled. We are still waiting for Him to fulfill the Fall Feasts. So we are waiting for this mortal body to put on immortality, and that has not happened yet.

      If we are to define sin, it is breaking the law. We have not been given permission to sin, so the Law is still in effect. We have not been made perfect yet, so there will still be times when we break the Law. Now we have an advocate, in Yeshua. I hope that this helps.

  7. Hi Ivar
    Hope you have a happy new year
    Thanks for your reply. I do believe that this was written to Jews in In the church at Collasse which also had gentile believers as well.
    I have asked the question to myself and to the Holy Spirit , why Paul had to bring this matter up. I have a couple of possible answers.
    1. Some devout Orthodox Jews in the church were judging other newly Jewish believers in Jesus because they weren’t observing these celebrations ,sabbaths,new moon, etc telling them that they should
    2. Jewish believers were observing these celebrations ,new moons,sabbaths, religious festivals etc and were expecting other believers in the church to do so, and if they didn’t Jews would
    Pass judgement on to them.
    It’s interesting what Paul says about the written code with it’s regulations. The law of which the Jews at Collasse knew. To say that it was against us and stood opposed to us. By saying “us” he was including himself together with them. Those are pretty strong words to say to a fellow Jew who believed that the written code was in their favor would be a total oxymoron. He then goes to say that the written code with its regulations were cancelled. They were nailed to the cross with him. These were a shadow of the things that were to come. These were done to point or lead them to messiah
    Who was to come. But now at that time of writing Jesus had come and these things; new moon celebrations, sabbaths, religious festivals were no longer needed because the one who they were pointing or leading them too had come. It’s interesting that he says the powers and authorities that put these man made things into practice were made a public spectacle of.
    It is also interesting that he says these are destined to perish with use because they are based on human commands and teachings.
    They have an appearance of wisdom or even godliness, but produces false humility a self imposed worship and produce harsh treatment of the body and they lack any value in restraining sensual
    Indulgence.
    I believe God’s message to them was that their messiah has come
    Just as he told them he would. The man made regulations that they were keeping were no longer neccassary. They have been cancelled out by Christ and the cross. The reality of those things is found in Christ and he came and did what he did to give them freedom. And for those that were still engaging in them were not to pass judgement on those who were not and those who were not
    Engaging in them were not to pass judgement on those that were.
    And that these things would perish with use because they are of no value because Christ had come and fulfilled them.

      Hi.
      You said that how you see it is , before they were observing the pagan feasts and then after believing in Jesus they started to observe the Jewish feast etc. I have a question about that. Why would they do that? Did someone tell them they needed to?
      If someone did I would think it would have been Jews. I don’t believe it was Paul. Because Paul’s teaching was freedom from the law. If they were told that they should observe these man made or human regulations,ie; feasts, new moon ,religious celebrations then that would be attaching works to their salvation. Paul taught against this. If these were against or opposed to them (israelites) as Paul says and the written code with its regulations was cancelled by Christ and the cross, then why would new converts be told to observe them. That doesn’t
      Line up. That to me, is another gospel which is no gospel at all

  8. Question…if one part of the Bible is ‘written ‘to the Jews’ another to the Gentiles’ another to the Greeks…Why would The Holy Ghost say ” to All”….. I for one believe The Word of God is ‘for all’ and that includes me..(smile)

    Question…if one Repents and is forgiven..as The Word says for ‘all Sinners to come to the Lord Jesus Christ to come and Repent and Believe on Him…and be Saved….
    Then Why confess you are a Sinner…if you are now a ‘Child of God and no longer a Child of Satan…
    …another Lie from Satan…
    You ‘may commit an act of sin…but a sinner by nature…NO…for The Word says you are not…but many will try to keep you mindful in that frame of mind so you will never grow in Christ and believe what the Word says…beyond denying the blood of Jesus Christ.

    Sad but True …no I refuse to raise my hand when a Pastor says how many in here are Sinners…saved by grace…I am Saved by Grace …I ”was” a Sinner …I ”am Saved by Grace”….

    Until we stop dividing His Word into tidbits to suit today’s Universities the children’s will never believe God’s whole Word is for them..they will always believe ‘that part is not for them’ and they will never believe Jesus Christ….for Man is always picking parts of His Word to fit what they want man to believe what God wants them to believe….BELIEVE GOD’S WORD…FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION….HE MEANS WHAT HE SAYS AND SAYS WHAT HE MEANS TO ALL OF US..NOT TO JUST THE JEWS NOT JUST TO THE GREEKS NOT JUST TO THE GENTILES…TO ‘ALL OF US’…YOU AND TO ME…(smile)….

    If you don’t agree with me… Take it up with Jesus when you come ‘face to face’ with HIM ..and you will…’we all will’ one time or another..I choose to believe His Word ..”ALL Scripture is for us”…(Old and New) 2Timothy 3:16 Is given by instruction of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; (17) That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

    Check out the ”prayer Jesus prayed for all of us who believed upon him thru the words of those who spoke his word he had chose” ..totally awesome!!

    John 17:20-24

    King James Version (KJV)

    20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

    21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

    22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

    23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

    24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

      Shalom, ans love in Jesus.

      You asked:

      Question…if one part of the Bible is ‘written ‘to the Jews’ another to the Gentiles’ another to the Greeks…Why would The Holy Ghost say ” to All”….

      My comment:

      The Bible is a message to all of us. But even you have to admit, that there are a lot of messages to particular people. When Jesus spoke to Pilate, the messages was to Him. But we can all learn from their conversation.

      When Paul write a letter to Timothy, there is are lot of stuff that do not apply to me. And I am sure that Paul never wrote to Timothy, taking into account that I would read this letter. Still, I can learn a lot from the two letters He wrote to a brother of us.

    Hi, and happy new year to you
    You are exactly correct. The bible is for all of us.
    It is for instruction, for reproof, and correction.
    It cannot be denied that some is speaking directly to specific people
    But it is for all of us. The passage I quoted that I asked for
    Denise’s input for instance is dealing with the observance of man made or human regulations that someone was either participating or not participating in. Now my dear,my dear Andrea (ha ha) who might that be written for and what can all of us learn from that passage. I like what you said “why confess that you are a sinner if you are child of God. You said that before on another post and I have since then been in agreement with you on that. I don’t awaken in the morning and say the first thing well let me see how many sins I can commit because after all I am a sinner you know. No the very first thoughts and words are thank you father for another day and help me to bring glory to your name by not sinning because after all I belong to you. You bought with a huge price let me glorify you.
    In this passage he’s letting whoever know that the observance of these human regulations are of no value and that the reality of them
    Is found in Christ and the cross who came as God said. It’s all about Jesus and what he did. That’s what they needed to dwell on
    The other things stood opposed to them and would perish with use.
    They produced false worship among other things as the passage reads. I don’t think I want to do that do you. That’s how the bible is for everyone

  10. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like
    this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
