Fountain of Blessings
Welcome to Fountain of Blessings, a Messianic fellowship based on the foundation and Hebrew roots of the Christian faith. We teach from the Middle Eastern perspective, and encourage individual study and research of Scripture. Our Lord and Savior did instruct us soundly, "Salvation is from the Jews." (John 4). The Semitic perspective sheds unique light on the Word of God rendering the Scripture distinctly applicable and practical. Thus we allow God, the Fountain of Life and Blessings, to reign in, and rain on our lives. "In Your light, we see light." (Psalm 36).
Not in the Tampa Bay area? You can still join us in faith and fellowship. We offer Messianic worship music and books, available for purchase through our online store. Be sure to check out our newly-released Messianic worship CD!
+ First Day Of Chanukah
Two holidays will collide next week. It’s been 125 years since Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah, (the eight day Hebrew celebration of lights) coincided, and it won’t happen again for a very long time (possibly 70,000 + years). Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 28th, which is also the second-third day of Chanukah. There will be three candles lit in the menorah by the time the turkey is ready to be devoured.
Rabbis say we shouldn’t read too much into the dual holidays, but they concede the two are connected to deep gratitude to the Everlasting God.
Chanukah can't sit still. It pops up at different times each year, because it follows the Hebrew calendar, not the Georgian calendar. Chanukah celebrates a great battle between the Maccabees (a Jewish army attempting to regain control of Judea in the second century B.C.) and the Seleucid Empire. What ensued in addition to the military victory was the subsequent rededication of the temple, in which a lamp in the temple with one day's worth of oil lasted for eight days. This miracle is commemorated annually.
The National Menorah at the Washington Mall
Thanksgiving tradition in the United States, is commonly, traced to a poorly documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts. This feast was prompted by a good harvest. As President of the United States, George Washington proclaimed the first nation-wide Thanksgiving celebration in America marking November 26, 1789, "A day of public Thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God".
We, at Fountain of Blessings, intend to blend the best of both holidays into one epic Spiritual feast. Please join us, Sunday, December 1st, 10:30 am, for a beautiful time of praise, thanksgiving, and fellowship. Happy Thanksgivukah!
