You may be a modern-day Maccabee!
During this holiday season, we are wise to remind those we love, and those we are reaching for, of the vital connection between Chanukah and Christmas. For years we have been explaining, “How Chanukah Saved Christmas!”
If the valiant Maccabees had not stood up to the Greco/Syrian tyrants, the nation of Israel would have been destroyed in 167 B.C. and the birth of Yeshua would have been eliminated, BUT God enabled a small band of faithful religious leaders to defeat a worldwide plot. The parallels with today’s world are inescapable. Once again, it is up to the “people of the book” to stand for freedom of speech, freedom to worship, and freedom to gather as believers in the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob.
Will we be like the Maccabees?
