Hanukkah #Rapture Watch MARANATHA

Submitted as a Rapture Watch

Bible Code....." 30th Kislev, the festival."
( Can view this Bible Code at the bottom of this email ).
 The reason why I ran such a phrase is because I wanted to see if the term "Hannukah" would happen to be encoded in this Bible Code.  Lo and behold it is.  I originally ran......."Kislev, the festival"....., but when I brought up the matrixes it was preceded by the Hebrew letter "Lamed" which has the gematria value of 30.  So this Code ends up reading ....." 30th Kislev, the festival."
 This year the 30th Kislev ( the last day of the Jewish month ) is on December 3rd.  It is also the "6th day" of the festival of Hannukah.  But not only is the 6th day of Hannukahon December 3rd, but it is also the "3rd day" of the week which is Tuesday.  Historically Jewish weddings traditionally took place on a Tuesday, the 3rd day of the week ( John 2:1 ).
 Now this is all very interesting to me due to the fact that the Hebrew term....."Rapture / Shilhuv"....is encoded from left to right in the surface text phrase of the Old Testament....."In day the third."   Remember that Hebrew reads from right to left ( the opposite direction that we read in English ).  This phrase..."In Day the Third"...is used 26 times in the surface text of the Old Testament.  I find this very interesting because the number ( 26 ) is the gematria value for Adonai.
Adonai / Yod = 10  Hay = 5  Vav = 6  Hay = 5 / total = 26
In Day the third / Yod - Shin - Yod - Lamed - Shin - Hay - Mem - Vav - Yod - Beth.
 This Hebrew term...."Rapture / Shilhuv"....is encoded the way we read from "left" to "right", instead of right to left the way Hebrew reads.
 Is all of this perhaps a "clue" to the time and the season of the Rapture?  Will the Rapturetake place on the "third day" of the week during the eight day festival of Hannukah this year?   There is no accidents in Scripture and I believe that God has encoded this Hebrew term "Rapture / Shilhuv" in this phrase "In Day the Third" for a specific reason.  God knew ahead of time what modern day term His Church would be using near the "end" of the Church age,  which describes our being "caught up." 
 Here is something else that perhaps some of you many have never thought of.  The other day I asked myself the following question......"Why Did Jesus use "Candlesticks" to symbolize and describe the seven Churches?   Why not something else? Could this be perhaps a "clue" to the time and seaon of Christ's coming for His Church during the eight day festival of "Hannukah?"  Indeed an interesting thought!  
 The seven Churches ( seven Candlesticks ) form a seven lamp "Menorah" design.  The theme of "Hannukah" has to do with the 9 candle Menorah.  In Revelation 1:13 it states that "in the middle" of the candlesticks - lampstands was the "Son of Man / Jesus."   The "center lamp" of the menorah is called the "servant lamp."  It is the lamp which feeds oil to all the other lamps. This lamp represents Jesus.   He is the "servant lamp."  Jesus is the "lightof the world" who is "in us" ( His Church )  and therefore we are the "light of Christ" in this world.  The Menorah was placed inside the "Holy of Holies" for the purpose of illuminating it while the High Priest was fulfilling his priestly duties.
 When the Rapture happens God is going to remove the "menorah" ( The Church ) from this world and place it in the Holy of Holies in the heavenly temple where it will illuminate and emanate the light and the glory of God. 
 The Twenty Four Elders in Revelation chapter 4 represent the Church which is....."a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that we may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light"
( 1 Peter 2:9 ).
 The apostle John states the following about the Church......"to Him who loves us, and released us from our sins by His blood, and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His god and Father;  to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen ( Rev. 1:5, 6 ).
Now listen to what the twenty four elders say in the following Scripture text.
 When He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints..............And they sang a new song, saying, Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals;  for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your bloodmen from every tribe and tongue and people and nation ( the 24 elders which is the Church )...................You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”
 These Scriptures show clearly who the twenty four elders represent.  They represent the Church who has been translated into heaven between Revelation chapters 3 and 4.   Therefore the Church is NOWHERE TO BE FOUND UPON THE EARTH after Revelation chapter 3,  but is seen already in heaven in Revelation chapter 4 by John the apostle.  And the Church....." who was purchased by the blood of Christ from every tribe and tongue and people and nation is singing the "new song " of redemption in chapter 5.  Therefore the Church will NOT enter nor have any participation in the seal, trumpet, bowl judgments of God.  The 24 elders ( the Church ) are seen before the throne of God as "priests" who are praising and serving Him in His temple before the "scroll" is even opened. 
 If people would see this clear teaching in Scripture, then all of this nonsense of the Church going through the tribulation period would fade away and would no longer exist in the minds of those who are trying to do so.  All these other veiws and teachings of men would melt away into oblivion.

Hanukkah (Chanukah)[edit]

Main articles: Hanukkah and Menorah (Hanukkah)
The Menorah is also a symbol closely associated with the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah (Chanukah). According to the Talmud, after the Seleucid desecration of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, there was only enough sealed (and therefore not desecrated) consecrated olive oil left to fuel the eternal flame in the Temple for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days which was enough time to make new pure oil.
The Talmud (Menahot 28b) states that it is prohibited to use a seven-lamp menorah outside of the Temple. The Hanukkah menorah therefore has eight main branches, plus the middle ninth lamp set apart as theshamash (servant) light which is used to kindle the other lights. This type of menorah is called a hanukiah inModern Hebrew.[1]
