SOME USEFUL BACKGROUND INFORMATION TO THE HOLY BIBLICAL BOOK/STORY OF JUDITH [YAHUdith]:
The BIBLICAL STORY OF CHANUKAH a.k.a HANUKKAH [DEDICATION & LIGHTS] is preserved in the BOOKS OF THE FIRST AND SECOND MACCABEES, which describe in detail the rededication of the HOLY TEMPLE in JERUSALEM and the LIGHTING of the MENORAH. These books are not part of the canonized TANAKH (Hebrew Bible) used by the Jews, though they were included in the Greek Septuagint. IT THROWS LIGHT ON WHAT WILL OCCUR DURING TGE TOUGHEST PART OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION!
In a nutshell: In the STORY, JUDITH, a beautiful widow, is able to enter the tent of Holofernes because of his desire for her. Holofernes was an Assyrian general who was about to destroy Judith’s home, the city of Bethulia.
*What most people DON’T UNDERSTAND is that there is ONE PART of the NEBUCHADNEZZAR STATUE that was FULFILLED in BIBLICAL PROPHECY however THE ENGLISH BIBLE WRITERS deliberately omitted it when putting THE HOLY BIBLE together so that CHRISTIANS do not get an incline as to what to expect during THE GREAT TRIBULATION particularly with regards to the Abomination of Desolation, etc!* The information that was omitted until EXTREMELY VITAL FOR EVERYBODY TO KNOW as it will affect us all somehow….! This event occurred sometime before YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S [a.k.a JESUS CHRIST; not Yeshua!] FIRST COMING To earth ! IT IS THEREFORE SUPPOSED TO COME AFTER THE BOOK OF MALACHAI!
It made the Children of ISRA’EL to the hills as Prophesied by Prophet Daniel:
Daniel 9:27 King James Version
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: *and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate,* even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
*Daniel 11:31 Complete Jewish Bible*
*31 Armed forces will come at his order and profane the sanctuary and fortress. They will abolish the daily burnt offering and set up the abomination that causes desolation.*
21st Century King James Version
10 Many shall be purified and made white and tried, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.
*11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.*
12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
*Sometime after THE SECOND HOLY TEMPLE was built under the Medo-Persian Empire Reign wit King Cyrus’ Permission, The GREEK EMPIRE took over rulership of the world with their major focus and target on THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH , Jerusalem, ISRA’EL !* After the Greek Empire, The Roman Empire took over. As we all know, the Roman Empire was in-charge of ISRA’EL by the time of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S BIRTH! And it is the Romans who actually crucified ✝️ YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH! Remember that Esau is Rome and vice versa ! And Esau hated his brother, Jacob Israel with Complete hatred! And what does the HOLY BIBLICAL SCRIPTURES say about hatred?
Genesis 4:6-8 – Cain murdered Abel as a result of hatred!
*1 John 3:15*
21st Century King James Version
*15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer, and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.*
Matthew 5:21-22 Complete Jewish Bible
*21 “You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Do not murder,’[Exodus 20:13; Deuteronomy 5:17] and that anyone who commits murder will be subject to judgment.* 22 But I tell you that anyone who nurses anger against his brother will be subject to judgment; that whoever calls his brother, ‘You good-for-nothing!’ will be brought before the Sanhedrin; that whoever says, ‘Fool!’ incurs the penalty of burning in the fire of Gei-Hinnom!
Just as the Babylon invaded ISRAEL and desolated THE HOLY LAND and most especially, its HOLY TEMPLE, *so did the Greeks invade THE HOLY LAND though the Greeks did not destroy THE HOLY TEMPLE but rather desecrated it in various ways such as placing the image of their leader in THE HOLY TEMPLE as well as sacrificing pigs inside THE HOLY TEMPLE OF YAH ALMIGHTY!* It is from this that we get THE LOST or OMITTED BIBLICAL STORIES on Hannah and her 7 Sons, Judith who killed th Holophernes, The Maccabees, etc!* The HOLY BIBLICAL FESTIVAL OF DEDICATION AND LIGHTS known as CHANUKAH a.k.a HANUKKAH in the Hebrew language [November-December time yearly] came about as a result of this event! *The Greek-Syrian King, Antiochus Epiphanes was in-charge of the invasion and desecration of THE HOLY TEMPLE and LAND! Antiochus was severely punished for a very long time for his actions to the extent that he was deserted by his servants.* He developed a very smelly disease whose stench could be smelt from far hence nobody could come close to him.
Matthew 24:15 Complete Jewish Bible
15 “So when you see the abomination that causes devastation spoken about through the prophet Dani’el standing in the Holy Place”[a] (let the reader understand the allusion), 16 “that will be the time for those in Y’hudah to escape to the hills.
*When YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH was speaking about THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION in Matthew 24 in reference to Daniel’s Prophecy, HIS listeners [Disciples] knew exactly what YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH was talking about because it has happened before in BIBLICAL HISTORY!* Remember Ecclesiastes 1:9:
*Ecclesiastes 1:9 King James Version
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.*
*The Children of ISRA’EL were forced to make difficult choices. Some compromised their FAITH, sadly however many others STOOD THEIR GROUND AND REJECTED The Anti-Messiah a.k.a Anti-Christ rule and his laws of desecration/desolation.*
Amongst those who did not compromise was a lady named Chanah [Hannah] and her 7 Sons! All her sons here tortured and killed [martyred] right in front of her. After her sons were killed, she also died. NOTE that her youngest was about 2 years or there about. He had been trained very well! He stood up FOR THAT TRUTH OF YAH despite the pressure applied by ISRA’EL’s enemies, the Greek-Syrians to transgress YAH’S TORAH [LAW]! He was the last to be killed!
*Many others who were not ready to compromise YAH’S TORAH [LAW] were killed while others managed to flee to the hills where they hid for many years. Those hiding in the hills were led by an elderly man named MattitYAHU [a.k.a Matthew] Maccabee. He had many sons, the most prominent of them all named YAHUdah [Judah] Maccabee!* MattitYAHU encouraged the Israelites who were with him to fight against their enemies so that they could recover their land however he got to a point and could not fight any more so he handed over to his son, YAHUdah Maccabee who eventually gain Victory over the Greek-Syrians, HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH!
This BIBLICAL HISTORY is recorded in BOOK 1-5 OF THR MACCABEES! It is in some BIBLES on the Bible Gateway App. Alternatively, you can access the pdf copies or purchase the books separately.
In our Current BIBLES, we have the BABYLONIAN EMPIRE, MEDO-PERSIAN EMPIRE and ROMAN EMPIRE RULE over ISRA’EL and the rest of the world however, THE GREEK EMPIRE Reign on earth was omitted!
*So, Brethren, note that not all BIBLICAL HISTORY is in THE HOLY BIBLES we currently have for YAH cannot write and produce only 66 HOLY BOOKS for us to read!!! HE has said it HIMSELF that there is more. We should seek HIM to reveal more to us.*
Unless you get an incline of what THE GREAT TRIBULATION a.k.a TIME OF JACOB’S SORROW/TROUBLE was like during The Greek Empire Reign on earth , you may not have full understanding of what is to come! *The Children of ISRA’EL are very studious when it comes to YAH’S WORD and so they have understanding when things happen however because many of them of this generation are blinded from acknowledging and according YAH’S SALVATION [YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH], it is very difficult for them to connect the dots fully well as they should hence we are to pray for them rather than condemn them.*
See Romans 11. Those who are not Biological ISRA’EL were grafted in so they ought NOT to be proud and feel superior over the Biological ISRA’EL who have rejected YAH’S SALVATION *because just as the gentiles were grafted in, so too can they be removed or cut out of the CULTIVATED OLIVE TREE!*
