The word that came to the Maccabees that brought light.
“Who is Like You, O Lord, Among the Mighty!” I believe that this word that became their cry brought forth light, not only in the Holy Place but illumined their hearts to believe this confession. They answered this eternal question—there is no one like the Lord. This brings to my mind a chorus we sang in the 70s from Isaiah 44:8:
There is none Holy as the Lord,
There is none beside Thee,
Neither is there any Rock like our God,
there is none Holy as the Lord.
Again this great confession: THERE IS NONE! May we proclaim on this sixth night as the light of this truth illumines us, “There is none, no one, no mighty, no not one like the Lord our God.” We celebrate His might this day. Hallelujah!
