The Iron Menorah, Maccabees, Hanukkah, The Altar & Abomination, The Greater Exodus and The 144,000
By Yakov Levi - January 1st, 2015 | Revised 4/26/15
Trumpet Blower
For the first time in 2,000 years, the Temple Menorah was lit; and it was in the midst of the week of Hanukkah, 2014. Additionally an altar has be dedicated, setting the stage for the Abomination of Desolation event. I am expecting the Abomination of Desolation event to occur in the season of Purim to Passover. There were strong indications for it to occur in the spring of 2015 based on the Jubilees. That time has past. It can occur at a future time; but based on the Jubilees, it seems the time is pointing now to spring of 2018. However, let's keep watch because patterns, even though very convincing, can still throw us.

The altar dedication is a significant prophetic development in light of the Last Days. The fully restored Temple Menorah was kindled using pure olive oil processed to Temple ritual standards on December 22, 2014. The lighting of the Menorah was carried out by Kohanim who are suppose to be members of the Jewish priestly tribe.

The theme of Hanukkah is of re-dedication to The LORD God (Yahuah Elohim). Around 166 BCE, Judas Maccabees led a guerrilla warfare against Hellenized Jews and then against the Seleucid Dynasty, a remaining political system of the Macedonian Empire which was the most powerful in the world in that age, defining the Hellenistic state that inaugurated the transition to a new period of Ancient Greek civilization. Alexander the Great took control of this empire for a moment.

At that time, the Temple was re-dedicated by the Maccabees who found that many of the holy temple vessels were missing. As a result, a menorah was forged out of iron. The story is that only one jug of pure temple oil was found which was just enough to keep the Menorah lit for one day. Miraculously the oil lasted for eight days. Now, about two thousand years later, a similar event has happened with deep prophetic significance.

The Maccabees fought to restore Biblical order at a time the governing bodies sought to destroy precepts derived from the Bible. In these last days, the same is happening at an extreme and becomes worse each day. Is it time for a Maccabee revolution?

The lighting of the Temple Menorah occurred on Kislev 30, which is the 6th day of Hanukkah and can be considered the "midst" of those 8 days. The corresponding Gregorian date is December 22nd. The evening of Kislev 30 was also when the First Crescent moon was sighted over Jerusalem, beginning the 1st day of the month of Tevet.

After the lighting of the Temple Menorah, the gathering proceeded to the Temple Institutes Holy Temple Visitor Center, where a newly completed stone altar was dedicated. To read about this click the following:

All that is needed for the Abomination of Desolation event is an altar. A temple is not a requirement. To better understand the context of the Abomination of Desolation event and the timing of the Greater Exodus, Great Tribulation and the beginning of the Ministry of the Two Witnesses and 144,000 - keep abreast of posts at http://SolomonsPorch.TV and SolomonsPorch.TV Facebook page.

My insight is that this event is symbolic of the re-dedication that will occur with a remnant of the Body of Messiah. The Maccabees of the Last Days will be the 144,000 and Two Witnesses. They will deliver the remnant of Yahuah Elohim's people in what is called the Greater Exodus of the Last Days. The LORD God (Yahuah Elohim) has always sent deliverers to His people, it seems, at specified intervals of time. Past deliverers were Abraham, Noah, Joseph, The Judges, King David, King Solomon and Yeshua.

It is written in Psalm 144, "Blessed be the Lord, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle." Is this the battle Psalm of the 144,000? Psalm 114 is about Elohim's (Gods) deliverance of Israel from Egypt. Revelation 14 is about the 144,000 on Mount Zion. Often, the Father "speaks" using numbers in Scripture. Numbers that relate to the Hebrew alphabet confirm much truth and you can learn more about this using Hebrew word pictures. This is beyond the scope of this note. However, notice the numbers 14, 144, 114 associated with the themes of exodus, war and the 144,000. The numbers are hints pointing thematically to the purpose of the Ministry of the 144,000 and Two Witnesses. My insight is that deliverance comes from a supernatural, sudden, natural, cataclysmic event - recall the flood of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah. Discussion of this is beyond the scope of this note.

May be it is about time I share this bit of insight. About 14 years ago, I left for a set-apart place where the road leading to the special location had in it the name "Macabee." Interestingly enough, the numbers 17 and 18 were associated with this location in another very unique way. To me it was a hint at the years 2017 and 2018. About 8 years later I met a woman who handed me an iron menorah. Another 4 years passed and another woman I met had in her hands an iron menorah. Both sisters-in-Messiah are now a part of my family.

Another interesting pattern yet emerges, there is a span of 22 miles set upon a sign by this set-apart location. I noted above that the lighting of the Menorah occurred on the 22nd day of December on the Gregorian calendar. The first day and second day of Hanukkah fell on December 17th and 18th in 2014. Is it mere coincident that these same numbers resound in this Hanukkah event with my personal experiences relating to Hanukkah over a span of 14 years?

Furthermore, my first-born daughter was born in the season of Hanukkah and her birthday coincides cyclically to the first day of Hanukkah every few years.

If Yahuah Elohim is still with me, I believe He is "speaking" about something very significant that is associated with this Festival of Lights - seen only through symbolism in the Scriptures. How events will play out remains to be seen.

Please keep in mind, an article or post can only convey so much. I am sharing with you only a small piece of a bigger puzzle. This article is not intended to be comprehensive study of any particular Biblical doctrine but only to stimulate you to search out truth for yourselves.

A special thank you to Angela Yah-rema Bukowski for alerting me about the Temple Menorah lighting event.
