Remembering Great Miracles

Hanukkah Devotions Book 2

The Feast of Dedication is an annual festival celebrated on eight successive days to honor the restoration of true worship in the temple after it had been defiled. After regaining control of the temple, it had to be purified before it could be used again to worship the one and only true God. The altar was torn down and rebuilt and new vessels were made. When everything was finished the curtain was hung and the bread of presence was put on the table.

On the twenty-fifth of Kislev the temple was the rededicated unto God .All the oil that had been found was  poured into the menorah, however, it would only enough to last for one day. The menorah was lit and miraculously it lasted for eight days, the exact time it took for new oil to be made!

Hanukkah is about remembering miracles and the God that can do great miracles.
