HANUKKAH FORESHADOWS THE END TIMES ANTICHRIST
Do you believe in coincidences?
That the very first mRNA coronavirus vaccine was given at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center during Hanukkah.
There’s a lot more going on in the Hanukkah story than just candles, dreidels, and potato latkes. The story of Hanukkah annually reminds us of the ongoing spiritual war against God’s people, the threat of religious persecution, and the heroic sacrifices of those who have laid down their lives rather than refusing to compromise their convictions.
Abomination of Desolation
Hanukkah recalls a dark time in Jewish history when the Seleucid Syrian-Greek government made the study of Torah illegal. In those days, circumcising your son could get both you and the child put to death. Jews who kept the Sabbath and holy days risked their lives to do so.
The villain of the Hanukkah story was the king of Syria, Antiochus (IV) Epiphanes. Antiochus Epiphanes was the antichrist of his generation. When the Syrian-Egyptian war (between the Seleucids and the Ptolemys) spilled into Israel, Antiochus took Jerusalem.
He encouraged the Jewish people to assimilate into the nations, setting aside the distinctive marks of Jewish identity. He forbade the study and observance of Torah. He set up an idol of Zeus in the Temple, and, according to some versions of the story, he had the craftsmen impose a likeness of his own face onto the idol. The Prophet Daniel foresaw this sacrilege and referred to it as the “abomination of desolation”:
Forces from him shall appear and profane the temple and fortress, and shall take away the regular burnt offering. And they shall set up the abomination that makes desolate. He shall seduce with flattery those who violate the covenant. (Daniel 11:31-32)
Daniel’s prophecy about the abomination of desolation was fulfilled in the days of the Hanukkah Revolt, but it is not merely a relic of Jewish history. Our Master warned his disciples that history would repeat itself.
He told his disciples that, if they should see “the abomination of desolation spoken of by the Prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place,” they should flee from Jerusalem and Judea and take shelter in the hills (Matthew 24:15). These words predicted the rise of another tyrant like Antiochus who would place an image in God’s Temple.
Likewise, the Apostle Paul explains that the antichrist will be “the man of lawlessness” who “exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).
Paul’s might as well have been describing Antiochus Epiphanes. Just as Antiochus IV forbade Torah observance and defiled the Temple with an idol bearing his own image, the antichrist, the “man of lawlessness,” will declare that the Torah is void, create an abomination of desolation, and declare himself divine, deceiving the world to “worship the beast and its image” (Revelation 14:9).

WE HAVE COME TO THE END OF THE HARVEST SEASON
When there was still a physical temple in Jerusalem, the oil sacrifices or first fruits of olives could be offered up to the temple until the winter feast of dedication (Hanukkah)
Its very interesting that the Hebrew word for ‘olive press’ is “Gethsemane” and the Garden of Gethsemane at the Mount of Olives is where Jesus was in agony as he prayed before his crucifixion, while his disciples fell asleep. It is at the same mountain that Jesus ascended into heaven and will return after the tribulation.
While they were sleeping…We are reminded of how the Lord was pressed to the extent he was sweating blood and water, a known expression of extreme bodily distress, reflecting his perfect obedience and willingness to endure unprecedented suffering.
He was crushed inwardly at night even before having to carry the weight of our sins as to bring forth divine light and means of holy anointing, embodying the temple Menorah’s center stem and lamp, supplying nourishment to the flanking branches
like manner, the bride of Christ, right before her expected departure, is pressed and called to watch and endure patiently. Like the almond oil and olive oil harvests conclude the years offerings, a final pressing is required to produce the precious oil that brings forth light.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Psalms 23:5
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. Matthew 25:5-6
The Bride of Christ has stood watch and patiently endured the final test from Hanukkah 2020-2021 under a worldwide global threat.
God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
Rapture is even hidden in Hanukkah
This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.
There is literal fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel 11:36 still to come concerning the last world empire and the evil Antichrist king who will exalt and magnify himself. As the number seven represents heavenly perfection and completeness, the number six represents sinful man who is imperfect and incomplete. The number 666 may remind us that man falls short three ways—in body, soul, and spirit—of God’s glorious nature. Antichrist exemplifies this complete “triple six” sinfulness of mankind. He is totally corrupt and debased, carnally minded, blasphemous, and lives in spiritual darkness. He is the bond servant of Satan, numbered 666.
Revelation 19:19-21 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
After 3 ½ years, the Antichrist and his armies will be defeated and the Temple will be cleansed and rededicated to the worship of the God of Israel just like in the times of the Macabees. Jesus Christ will sit on his throne in Jerusalem and rule over the nations.
Hanukkah Foreshadows the Reign of Antichrist!
Hanukkah or Chanukah is an eight day festival to celebrate the ancient victory of the Maccabees over the Syrians whose leader typifies the Antichrist. This “Feast of Dedication” is popularly known as the “Festival of Lights.” This festival is associated with the miracle in which the lamps stayed lit for “eight” days while the Temple in Jerusalem was rededicated, although there was only enough oil to fuel the Temple’s lamps for only “one” day.
After the death of Alexander the Great, who died without leaving an heir to his throne, the Greek Empire was divided among his four generals known as the Diadochi. Nicator Seleucus took control of the eastern provinces. Antiochus IV, a later Seleucid king, named himself Epiphanes which means “god manifest.” But Antiochus’ brutality and megalomania was better expressed sarcastically by his subjects privately who referred to him as Epimanes – the Madman.
One of the smallest states of the Grecian world empire was the kingdom of Judea. It lay between two giant powers, Egypt to the south and Syria to the north. Egypt was ruled by the Ptolemies and Syria was ruled by the Selucids. Judea was surrounded on all sides by countries who had succumbed to Greek culture. This culture came to be known as Hellenism. People everywhere began to speak Greek, dress like the Greeks, embrace Greek philosophy and worship the gods of Greece. Only in Judea, did the people live in a markedly distinct fashion from their Greek oppressors.
Hanukkah and the symbolism of the antichrist being revealed and Jesus Christ’s Return..
Prepare for the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
HANUKKAH FORESHADOWS THE END TIMES ANTICHRIST
The template for the coming appearance of the Antichrist is depicted in the events that led up to the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah. It is the Feast of Dedication (John 10:22-23)
which celebrates the re-dedication of the temple after Antiochus (antichrist) Epiphanes (god manifest) had desecrated the temple with a statue of Zeus (167BC) and by slaughtering pigs there. At the Feast of Dedication, they light the Menorah (a symbol of Divine light spreading throughout the world). This is exactly what we need to be (a symbol of Divine light), as the world back then got darker, and they called what was good, evil and what was evil, good, so it is in our day.
Thankfully, we also see in the events celebrated at Hanukkah, how to overcome evil in these last days. We must be like Mattathias (a Jewish priest who headed up the Maccabees) who refused to worship the Greek gods. Despite not having weapons, nor being trained in warfare, God miraculously gave them victory three times against Antiochus despite overwhelming odds on each occasion. Likewise, if we stand up for God in these “last days” we can expect God to be with us supporting us, as He did the Maccabees. In answer to the disciples questions about His second coming (Olivet Discourse), Jesus states that when they see the abomination of desolation in the temple referred to in Daniel 9:26-27, it will be a sign that His second coming is near.
This event is definitely in the future, but I believe the birth pangs that Jesus also referred to, as signs of His second coming, are underway. When you have time explain these events in detail.
