Note: This month Thanksgiving and the beginning of Hanukkah will fall on the
same day for the first time in our lifetime. This will not happen again for
for 79,000 years! Prophetically, we believe this to be very significant. If
you've never studied or celebrated Hanukkah, we urge you to do so. It
will inspire you and enrich your observance of Thanksgiving and Christmas
this year and in the future. Understanding the Jewish roots of our faith
is meaningful and powerful.
As always, cooperate with and pray into these insights all month long. Let your faith be activated to believe for the things this month stands for and watch God move on your behalf. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah!
