An Encouraging Message From Yeshua on Hanukah

Yesterday, I was feeling sorry for my daughter as I thought about the fight she has ahead of her, the social pressures that will try to entice her conform to the evil culture in America.

But then Yeshua gave me hope.  Here is what He said:

"And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants [hanikav yelidey--literally "trained/dedicated children"], born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan," (Gen 14:14)

"Train [hanok] up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old , he will not depart from it," (Prov. 22:6).

I must train/dedicate (hanok--which is related to the term Hanukah) my little yeldah (girl) so that when she is old she will not depart from His Way.  And like Abraham's "fighting men", and like the Maccabees, she will will know how to fight darkness, letting her light (Yeshua) shine before everyone she encounters.  The Light will separate her from the darkness.

You know, recently, we learned that our daughter accepted Yeshua into her heart (her words).  She did this without anyone prompting her.  And several days later she was singing in the living room, saying "We sing up to you oh G-d forever", a little, innocent melody she made up.  And then she turned to me and exclaimed "Ever since I invited Yeshua into my heart I just can't stop praising G-d!"  

What a wonderful girl.  May G-d protect and bless my little angel.


  1. Love this post. I agree that it is challenging, but may we be the ones to walk through it that our progeny be raised within the correct paradigm and not have this wrestling match for their children.

    Shalom and blessings!!

  2. Agreed!

    Happy Hannukah!
