Menorah For The Eighth Day of Hanukkah!


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!



Eighth 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.

When Moses entered the Tent of Meeting to speak with YAHUVEH, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the atonement cover on the ark of the Testimony. And he spoke with him. YAHUVEH said to Moses, "Speak to Aaron and say to him, 'When you set up the seven lamps, they are to light the area in front of the lampstand.'" Aaron did so; he set up the lamps so that they faced forward on the lampstand, just as YAHUVEH commanded Moses. This is how the lampstand was made: It was made of hammered gold--from its base to its blossoms. The lampstand was made exactly like the pattern YAHUVEH had shown Moses.

Isaiah 30:26
The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when YAHUVEH binds up the bruises of his people and heals the wounds he inflicted.

Zechariah 14:6-7
On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. It will be a unique day, without daytime or nighttime--a day known to YAHUVEH. When evening comes, there will be light.

Isaiah 60:19-20
The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for YAHUVEH will be your everlasting light, and your YAHUVEH will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; YAHUVEH will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.

Luke 1:67-79
His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied: "Praise be to YAHUVEH, the God of Israel, because he has come and has redeemed his people. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David (As he said through his holy prophets of long ago), Salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us-- To show mercy to our fathers and to remember his holy covenant, The oath he swore to our father Abraham: To rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fear In holiness and righteousness before him all our days.

And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before YAHUVEH to prepare the way for him, To give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, Because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven To shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace."

1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a Holy nation, GOD YAHUVEH’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of HIM who called you out of darkness into HIS wonderful light.

1 John 1:5
This is the message we have heard from HIM and declare to you: GOD YAHUVEH is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

Matthew 5:15-16
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your FATHER in HEAVEN.

Genesis 3:15
"And I will put enmity between you and the woman,and between your offspring and hers;he will crush your head,and you will strike his heel."

Isaiah 8:14
"HE will be a holy place;for both Israel and Judah HE will be a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem HE will be a trap and a snare."


Fulfillment:
1 Peter 2:7-8

"Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,

'The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone,'

and,

'A stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.'

"They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.”



John 10:1-42
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

This parable spake YAHUSHUA unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. Then said YAHUSHUA unto them again,

Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings. And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him? Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind? And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And YAHUSHUA 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. YAHUSHUA 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. YAHUSHUA 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. YAHUSHUA answered them,

Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand, And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode. And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.
