Restoring The Early Church ~ Lesson 10

Happy Hanukkah to those who avail themselves of the blessings of observing this holiday! For those who do not, and wonder why a Gentile believer in Yeshua (Jesus) would want to celebrate this holiday, here is a great post by our friend Lisa, entitled "Why Hanukkah?". In a nutshell, the events leading up to Hanukkah were prophesied in Daniel chapter 8, and without the efforts of the Maccabees, frankly there would not have been a Messiah. Maybe that is why Yeshua himself traveled to Jerusalem to celebrate as well (my studies show this to be a three to five day journey ~ in winter).


In our study, this lesson is getting down to the nitty gritty details of walking out life together as the ecclesia ~ the called out ones ~ and growing in our roles as men and women of the Most High, Yahweh. This lesson, in particular reiterates the lesson that Mr. Visionary has been teaching our children about knowledge not being an end in itself, but is valuable only as it helps us grow in our obedience to Yahweh and His Word.

The Importance of Older Women

Growing Wise And Remaining Teachable

  1. Happy Hanukkah!

    And bless you for the gift of linking to these lessons- what wonder!

  2. WOW! Thank you for your wonderful encouragement! Chag Sameach Hanukkah to you all, from our household as well! May your celebration be a true re-dedication to the Master!

    Yes, wise words. We need to become those wise women mentors for the younger generations. There ARE others out there, and the numbers are growing rapidly! It's so encouraging! Still, sometimes we have to be still and know while we patiently wait for the Father to bring others into our lives (or us into their lives). How I long for a wise woman to mentor me!!

    Blessings ~
