Shalom Segula (Treasured Possssion)

It is with great delight that we greet you this month.

Our hearts are full of the joy of our salvation in Yeshua.¬†¬†Joy in Yeshua, along with the life that we have been given when He is our Messiah and we live according to His Torah, has been a focus for River of Life the last several weeks. We are overcomers in this life.¬†¬†2 Corinthians 2:14 says,¬†“But thanks be to Elohim, who always leads us in triumph in Messiah, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.”¬†There’s no greater time to be reminded of this than during the season of Chanukah.

Yeshua is the “Light of the World” and this is part of the good news.¬†¬†The retelling of the story of the Maccabees, and the “Victory over Paganism” they experienced at the mighty hand of YHVH, shows us another example of a people overcoming when their life is surrendered to the Creator of the universe.¬†¬†He will do the same for us as well.¬†¬†HalleluYah!!

Chanukah, the Feast of Dedication, is coming up this week.  This time of year always brings to the forefront the history of this great event; a time when there was victory over paganism and the Temple and altar were rededicated.

Not much has changed in all these years as there is still a need for us to have victory over the things of this world that seek to pull us away from our Father and His Kingdom purposes.  This is a beautiful time that we can use to rededicate ourselves, as we are the temple of the Ruach HaKodesh/Holy Spirit…that temple that is being made without hands.  HalleluYah!!

We will celebrate Chanukah at River of Life on Shabbat December 4th at 11:00 a.m. All are welcome to join us in this celebration.

Attached is the December Torah Calendar. May the light of His Word be shed abroad in our hearts that we may be encouraged in love, hope and all righteousness!!
