DEAR PENTECOST FIRESTARTERS,
Jolene and I were married on Hanukkah. The lamp of our unity candle supernaturally lit. For the past six years we’ve facilitated Revolution conferences over Hanukkah. We dreamed a journey from Rome to Jerusalem to restore God’s menorah or lampstand. We even wrote a book—The Midnight Cry—centered on Hanukkah. And our ministry is called Lamplighter.
All that said, you’d think we’d seen it all. But until Jamie’s post today I’ve never seen the connection between Hanukkah and Pentecost. Really I’ve never seen how, when Holy Spirit fell at Pentecost or Shavuot, each person became a living menorah themselves. Holy fire rested on them. They were the lampstand His fire rested on!
Hope you enjoy this revelatory posting as much as I have. And if you’re in the area you don’t want to miss Pentecost in Philadelphia! We are actually believing God for His fire to consume the mikvah or baptism pool as we baptize at Independence Mall this Sunday! Suggest you get here quick. Just sayin’.
Let Pentecost Fire Light Your Lampstand! Jamie Fitt
For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it. Leviticus 23:36 NKJV
All of the feasts outlined in the Old Testament were marked by offerings ‘made by fire’ to the Lord. Although Hanukkah is not spoken of in the Old Testament, it is certainly a feast marked by the flame of God. The Spirit of God is spoken of as seven flames of fire (Revelation 4:5) or the seven-fold Spirit of God (Isaiah 11:2). The picture here is of the menorah, which was the lamp stand that kept burning during the miracle of Hanukkah. It was the oil (also symbolic of Holy Spirit) that did not run out.
On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came down, and for the first time in history, the seven flames of the lamp stand came to rest upon those gathered in the Upper Room. What had been stored up in heaven was finally being released on earth in the form of tongues of fire. The Holy Spirit came and ignited the lamp stand of the people in the Upper Room with a flame that was miraculous and would never go out!
Hanukkah is called (in the New Testament) the Feast of Dedication. This was because Hanukkah celebrates the rededication of the temple after a period of severe defilement. In many ways, that is exactly what happened on the day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit came and rededicated what had always belonged to the Lord, but had become defiled by sin. Jesus, the One from the tribe of Judah, came and overthrew the enemy that had defiled us, and then the flame of the Holy Spirit came and declared our belonging to the One who created us. It was our very own feast of dedication!
It is very interesting to observe that the first public menorah lighting took place in 1974, right here in Philadelphia at Independence Mall. The practice continues every year. It is lit in the same place that believers have been gathering to pray for many years. It is also the place where the LGBT pride parade takes place every year. The LGBT community has misused the symbol of the rainbow, but its true meaning is the seven colors that speak around the throne of who God is (some have noted a connection between the seven spirits of God and the seven colors of the rainbow). Interestingly, last summer, the Lord had many gather at the Mall during the time of Pentecost (which, to our surprise, coincided with the LGBT parade). As we move toward Pentecost this year, the Lord is wanting to release the fullness of His rainbow, and His seven fold Spirit upon all those who have been trapped in darkness and defilement in our nation. Truly, the flames of Pentecost are igniting the lamp stand in a powerful way.
Father, I thank You for lighting my lamp stand. I thank You that You have blessed me with the gift of Your Holy Spirit – the all consuming flame that never goes out. I thank You for strength and perseverance in this hour. Thank You that the fire of my lamp stand grows brighter and brighter – that it is illuminating my household, my community and my sphere of influence. Thank You that Pentecost’s fire is moving in our nation. For all trapped in darkness, we loose Your glorious light. We declare to those caught in the defilement of sin that You were made for more than this. You were made to carry the Light of the World in You. We declare that Pentecost’s flame is poured out on all flesh – burning away unholiness and purifying everything it touches. Hallelujah!
