In a recent video, Jonathan Cahn revealed the end times mystery of apostasy as it relates to Hanukkah.

“People have a picture that it’s going to be suddenly evil comes on the world as if the Antichrist just flew in from another world, turns everything upside down, takes over some evil government, comes into power. That’s not the way Hanukkah happened; it’s not the way it’s going to happen in the end times either. First, there will come an apostasy.” Cahn said.

Cahn first explained that what makes the Hanukkah menorah different than others is that it has nine lights instead of seven, including one in the middle which is meant to be the light assisting all the others by lighting them up, just as the Messiah is the light of the world.

“The lights of Hanukkah are the lights of dedication,” Cahn said. “In the Gospel of John it says something that most believers have seen but they don’t realize what it is and most Jewish people have no idea of it. It says in John 10: ‘And it was the Feast of Dedication, it was winter time in Jerusalem…’ And the Jewish people came around him and said, ‘how long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Messiah tell us plainly.'”

Cahn points out that this conversation happened during Hanukkah, making what Jesus said to the Jews His “Hanukkah words.”

“He said, ‘My sheep hear My voice and I know them and they follow Me.’ And He said, ‘I and My Father are One.'”

These words not only bring light and truth to the world today, but Cahn says that this light which Christ represents for those who seek Him can also help us to discern an end times apostasy that is currently all around us.

“Hanukkah, I share is the most detailed revelation of the end times of the holy days of Israel,” Cahn said. “Just one example, Hanukkah involves the account of Antiochus, this evil man who last who called himself Epiphanes, which means ‘God manifest…’ Antiochus is a foreshadow of the Antichrist and what happened in Hanukkah is a foreshadow of what’s going to happen in the end times, and what happened with the Maccabee’s is a key for how we are to live in the end times.”

Cahn points out that we can see the connection of Hanukkah and the end times through Daniel 11. He also says that the world will ultimately prepare for the arrival of the Antichrist.

“America’s and the world’s apostasy is going to prepare for the Antichrist,” Cahn said.

As the world sees Hanukkah from a different point of view this year with the ongoing devastation in Israel, it’s important that we see that the One who created the world is still in the midst of it now just as He always has been.
