There was a full moon the day Israel left Egypt. But the pillar of fire of God gave them light and protection.
And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.
To commemorate God as light, huge menorahs (candelabras) were erected and lit for the eight days of the celebration.
PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM AS ISRAEL CELEBRATES YESHUA, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
