Festival of Lights (Winter)

 

Occurrences:   5

First Reference:  7th Endowment 3:12

 

Let us then consider the second festival which I would now appoint, for on the eve of the winter solstice shall you celebrate for three days the Winter Festival of Lights; which festival shall proclaim aloud the family of God above that of mortal man.

 

 

See:  Fellowship of God                                                       Refer to:  7th Endowment 3:12-48

 

Summary:  In the 7th Endowment, Heavenly Mother appoints the celebration of four festivals which coincide with the solstices and equinoxes of each year. The Winter Festival of Lights is a three-day celebration beginning on the eve of the winter solstice, which celebration proclaims the supremacy of God and the family of God above all things temporal and impermanent (7:3:12-20). Proscriptions for celebration include the following:

 

• at sunrise on the day of the solstice, a candle is lit in the sanctuary, to burn for three days  (7:3:23)

• feasting and celebration with family, then with the greater family represented by the Fellowship  (7:3:24)

• the home is filled with music and decorated with pine boughs and lights in commemoration of Sophiel and Mahaleenah in their victory over Jehovah-Yahweh  (7:3:29-34)

• extending the grace of God unto the poor and those less fortunate  (7:3:35-39)

 

Other festivals include: the Festival of Joy, the Festival of Harvest and Thanksgiving, and the Festival of Lovers.
