Begin by clicking on the a day number of Hanukkah you wish to light a candle for. The candle on the center has already been lit, it represents YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH, The Light of the World!



Seventh Night




Hag Sameach and Happy Hanukkah! Before you begin reading the blessings, I would like to give a brief explanation on why we are doing things different than other ministries. You will notice that we say all three blessings throughout the entire 8 days of Hanukkah. YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH convicted me in prayer as to why we would only say the 3rd blessing only on the 1st day of Hanukkah, and not throughout the entire 8 days. So therefore, we are saying all 3 blessings throughout all 8 days as we remember YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH was conceived on the 1st day of Hanukkah and born on the 1st day of Sukkot and of course the miracle of the oil that lasted 8 days.

You can hear and read the 3 blessings in Hebrew and in English by clicking on my picture on the bottom left hand corner. The blessings are also written down below in Hebrew and English so you can read and sing along.

YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH bless your Hanukkah and expect miracles from YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. Hag Sameach! In YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACHS love, Apostle Prophet and Pastor Elisheva Eliyahu.


Prayers to be said during the time when the Menorah is lit

May it be YOUR will, YAHUVEH, my CREATOR and My ABBA in the name of YAHUSHUA, that this be a favorable time before YOU for the observance of the Chanukah lamp lighting, as a remembrance of the brightest light that YOU sent into this world, YOUR only begotten Son our YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. And a reminder how HE was conceived around Hanukkah (and born nine months later around Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles).

This is another reason we celebrate the festival of lights. Oil lights go out after eight days. YAHUSHUA, the brightest light sent to this earth, the true living oil, will last for ETERNITY. We celebrate the miracle of both lights. YAHUSHUA is the LIVING MENORAH! An ETERNAL LIGHT that will NEVER go out!

Thank you YAHUSHUA for giving this revelation to me (Elisheva Eliyahu) on November 23rd, 2005. 'For it is You YAHUVEH who will light my lamp, in the the name of YAHUSHUA, who will illuminate my darkness.'

Dispatch YOUR light and truth, for we only seek YOUR truth through the RUACH HA KODESH (HOLY SPIRIT), that shall guide me to fear and love of Your Sacred Names, to study and keep and teach YOUR Holy Torah, the Written Torah, and the Oral Torah who came as the Word who is made flesh, your only begotten Son, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. With great diligence to give honor to YOUR blessed, exalted Name of YAHUVEH and YOUR Son, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH.

By virtue of the Chanukah lights, make us wise through the living guiding light, YAHUSHUA, the living Torah. May this verse be fulfilled, as it is written: '"It shall not depart from your mouth, from the mouth of your children and from the mouth of your children's children", says YAHUVEH, "from now to eternity".' May my children and grandchildren be obedient to the HOLY TRINITY ABBA YAHUVEH YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH and the RUACH HA KODESH, YOUR Holy Word the Bible, and may You strengthen our resolve in obedience to the Torah and obedience to YOU, all according to YOUR good desire. May I deserve to see children and grandchildren engaging in the Torah and commandments with sincerity.

Uncover our eyes that we may perceive the wonders of YOUR Holy Word the Bible to define the truth of the Torah and its mysteries. Purify our hearts for Your service, distance us from evil and sinful thoughts, may our eyes see the return of YOUR beloved Son YAHUSHUA who will come and reign in Jerusalem as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S NAME.

Candle Blessings Recited All 8 Nights

First Blessing After Lighting Just the Shamash
Ba-rucha-tah Adonai E-lo-hei-nu, Mel-ech ha-olam,
Blessed are you O YAHUVEH our God, king of the universe,
Asher kideshanu be-mitzvotav,
Who has sanctified us by his Word,
ve-tzivanu le-hadlik ner shel Chanukah.
and instructed us to kindle the Chanukah lights.
Al Ha-Nissim

Blessed are YOU, Oh ABBA YAHUVEH who is our Creator, our HEAVENLY FATHER in HEAVEN, YOU are KING of the Universe who has sanctified us by HIS word and instructed us to kindle the Hanukkah lights and do this in remembrance.

(Recited all eight nights)

Ha-ne-roth hal-la-lu, a-nach-nu mad-li-kin al ha-nis-sim,
We kindle these lights on account of the miracles,
v’al hat-shu-oth v’al ha-nif-la-oth she-o-see-ta la-avo-tei-nu,
the deliverances and the wonders which You worked for our ancestral fathers,
al y’de ko-ha-ne-cho, hak-k’do-shim. V’chol sh’-mo-nath y’may
by means of Thy holy priests. During all the eight days of
chanu-kah, han-ne-roth hal-lo-lu ko-desh; v’ain lo-nu r’shuth
Chanukah these lights are sacred, neither is it permitted us to make any profane use of them
l’hish-ta-mesh bo-hem el-lo lir-o-tom bil-vad. K’de l’ho-doth,
but we are only to look at them, in order that we may give thanks
L’shim-cha al ni-se-cho, v’al y’shu-o-se-te-cho, v’al nif-l’o-te-cho
unto Thy name for Thy miracles, thy deliverences and thy wonders.

Second Blessing While Lighting The Menorah Candles With the Shamash
Ba-ruch a-tah Adonai E-lo-hei-nu, Mel-ech ha-olam,
Blessed are you O YAHUVEH our God, king of the universe,
she-a-sa ni-sim la-a-avo-tei-nu ba-ya-mim ha-hem ba-ze-man ha-zeh
who performed wondrous deeds for our fathers in days of old at this season

Blessed are YOU, ABBA YAHUVEH our CREATOR, our HEAVENLY FATHER, KING of the universe, who performed miracles for our forefathers in those days and who will continue to give us miracles and deliverance from the reprobate enemies’ hands at this time of Hanukkah. Hanukkah in Hebrew means dedication. Hanukkah means deliverance and miracles and we have 8 days that we can rejoice and wait. When you’re lighting those Hanukkah oil lanterns or Hanukkah candles, just expect miracles, ask forgiveness in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH'S NAME then you go to the FATHER ABBA YAHUVEH and you ask what you will. And if its HIS will, we believe in miracles and it will happen and HE will deliver us once again from the hands of the enemies who seek our destruction

Third Blessing
Shehekiyanu

Ba-ruch a-tah Adonai E-lo-hei-nu, Mel-ech ha-olam,
Blessed are you O YAHUVEH our God, king of the universe,
she-he-che-ya-nu ve-ki-ye-ma-nu ve-hi-gi-a-nu la-ze-man ha-zeh
for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for enabling us to reach this season.

Blessed are You, Oh ABBA YAHUVEH our CREATOR, our HEAVENLY FATHER, KING of the universe, who has granted us life, provided for us, who has given us this revelation that YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH is the living Menorah, the living Torah, the word that was made flesh as we celebrate this feast of dedication on this festival of lights as we honor the eternal light YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH.

The desire of our heart is to be a light so we can lead souls to YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. No flesh can be saved except through the name and the blood of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. Acts 4:12 There is salvation in none other, for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, in which we must be saved!"

YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH is the only blood atonement for people who confess, repent and turn away from their sins.

YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH was crucified and was accused of Blasphemy by saying HE is the Son of GOD YAHUVEH, and on the third day arose from the dead.

YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH did more miracles than any book could hold until HE ascended into HEAVEN on the 40th day before many witnesses Acts 1:3 He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God.

Matthew 4:17 From that time YAHUSHUA began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Below is a reminder of all of the ways YAHUVEH delivered our Jewish ancestors as written in the Holy Scriptures:

These lights we kindle upon the miracles, the wonders, the salvation, through YAHUSHUA and His gift at calvary, and the battles which You performed for our forefathers in those days at this season through Your holy priests. During all eight days of Chanukah these lights are sacred, and we are not permitted to make ordinary use of them, but only to look at them in order to express thanks and praise to Your great Name for Your miracles, Your wonders and Your salvation.

I.
O mighty stronghold of my salvation, YAHUSHUA,
to praise You is a delight.
Restore my House of Prayer
and there we will bring a thanksgiving offering.
When You will have prepared the slaughter
for the blaspheming foe,
Then I shall complete with a song of hymn
the dedication of the altar.

II.
My soul had been sated with troubles,
my strength has been consumed with grief.
They had embittered my life with hardship,
with the calf-like kingdom's bondage.
But with His great power
He brought forth the treasured ones,
Pharaoh's army and all his offspring
went down like a stone into the deep.

III.
To the holy abode of His Word He brought me.
But there, too, I had no rest
And an oppressor came and exiled me.
For I had served Aliens,
And had drunk benumbing wine.
Scarcely had I departed
At Babylon's end Zerubabel came.
At the end of seventy years I was saved.

IV.
To sever the towering cypress
sought the Aggagite, son of Hammedatha,
But it became [a snare and] a stumbling block to him
and his arrogance was stilled.
The head of the Benjaminite You lifted
and the enemy, his name You obliterated
His numerous progeny - his possessions -
on the gallows You Hanged.

V.
Greeks gathered against me
then in Hasmonean days.
They breached the walls of my towers
and they defiled all the oils;
And from the one remnant of the flasks
a miracle was wrought for the roses.
Men of insight - eight days
established for song and jubilation.

VI.
Bare Your holy arm, YAHUVEH,
and hasten the End for salvation -
Avenge the vengeance of Your servants' blood
from the wicked nation.
For the triumph is too long delayed for us,
and there is no end to days of evil,
Repel the evil one in the nethermost shadow
and establish for us the seven shepherds.

Special reading for the Sabbath occuring during Hanukkah.

Numbers 7:1-11
When Moses finished setting up the tabernacle, he anointed it and consecrated it and all its furnishings. He also anointed and consecrated the altar and all its utensils. Then the leaders of Israel, the heads of families who were the tribal leaders in charge of those who were counted, made offerings. They brought as their gifts before YAHUVEH six covered carts and twelve oxen--an ox from each leader and a cart from every two. These they presented before the tabernacle. YAHUVEH said to Moses, "Accept these from them, that they may be used in the work at the Tent of Meeting. Give them to the Levites as each man's work requires."

So Moses took the carts and oxen and gave them to the Levites. He gave two carts and four oxen to the Gershonites, as their work required, And he gave four carts and eight oxen to the Merarites, as their work required. They were all under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron, the priest. But Moses did not give any to the Kohathites, because they were to carry on their shoulders the holy things, for which they were responsible. When the altar was anointed, the leaders brought their offerings for its dedication and presented them before the altar. For YAHUVEH had said to Moses, "Each day one leader is to bring his offering for the dedication of the altar."

Zechariah 2:13 - 4:7
Be still before YAHUVEH, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling." Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of YAHUVEH, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. YAHUVEH said to Satan, "YAHUVEH rebuke you, Satan! YAHUVEH, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?" Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes." Then he said to Joshua, "See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put rich garments on you." Then I said, "Put a clean turban on his head." So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of YAHUVEH stood by.

The angel of YAHUVEH gave this charge to Joshua: "This is what God Almighty says: 'If you will walk in my ways and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here. "'Listen, O high priest Joshua and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch. See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,' says God Almighty, 'and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day. "'In that day each of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and fig tree,' declares God Almighty."

Then the angel who talked with me returned and wakened me, as a man is wakened from his sleep. He asked me, "What do you see?" I answered, "I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lights on it, with seven channels to the lights. Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left." I asked the angel who talked with me, "What are these, my YAHUVEH?" He answered, "Do you not know what these are?" "No, my YAHUVEH," I replied. So he said to me, "This is the word of YAHUVEH to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says God Almighty. "What are you, O mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of 'YAHUVEH bless it! YAHUVEH bless it!'"

Psalm 40:6-8
"Sacrifice and offering YOU did not desire—but my ears YOU have opened— burnt offerings and sin offerings YOU did not require. Then I said, “Here I am, I have come—it is written about me in the scroll. I desire to do your will, my GOD;YOUR law is within my heart"

Fulfillment:
Hebrews 10:5-10

"Therefore, when CHRIST came into the world, HE said:

'Sacrifice and offering YOU did not desire,
but a body YOU prepared for me;
with burnt offerings and sin offerings
YOU were not pleased.'
"Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll—
I have come to do YOUR will, my God.’”

"First he said, 'Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them'—though they were offered in accordance with the law. Then he said, 'Here I am, I have come to do your will.' He sets aside the first to establish the second. And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of YAHUSHUA CHRIST once for all”
