A couple of weeks ago ADONAI Tzva'ot gave me divine revelation about the significance of the book of Ester. The book of Ester is a book of prophecy about the fate of those who seek to exterminate Jewish People & the right of the Jewish Nation to defend herself!

"Ester the queen answered, "If I have won your favor, king, and if it pleases the king, then what I ask be given me is my own life and the lives of my people. For we have been sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, killed, exterminated". Ester 7:3-4

The word "EXTERMINATED" hit my spirit with the force of lightening. ADONAI Tzva'ot was about to open my eyes about the truths in the book of Ester that were concealed from me.

Ruach HaKodesh told me that the lives of those who seek to exterminate Jewish people would be shortened as Haman's in the book of Ester.
"'Harvonah, one of the king's attendants, said, "Look! The gallows seventy-five feet high that Haman made for Mordekhai, who spoke only good for the king, is standing at Haman's house."The king said, "Hang him on it." So they hanged Haman on the gallows he had prepared for Mordekhai. Then the king's anger subsided.'" Ester 7:9-10.

"'Again Ester spoke to the king; she fell at his feet and begged him with tears to put an end to the mischief Haman the Agagi had caused by the scheme he had worked out against the Jews. The king extended the gold scepter toward Ester. So Ester got up and stood in front of the king. She said, "If it pleases the king, if I have won his favor, if the matter seem right to the king and if I have his approval, then let an order be written rescinding the letters devised by Haman the son of Hamdata the Agagi, which he wrote to destroy the Jews in all the royal provinces. For how can I bear to see the disaster that will overcome my people? How can I endure seeing the extermination of my kinsmen? King Achashverosh said to Ester the queen and Mordekhai the Jew, "Listen! I gave Ester the house of Haman, and they hanged him on the gallows, because he threatened the lives of the Jews.'" Ester 8:3-7.

"A decree was written according to everything Mordekhai ordered concerning the Jews, to the army commanders, governors and officials of the provinces from India to Ethiopia, 127 provinces, to each province in its script and to each people in their language, also to the Jews in their script and language." Ester 8:9

"'The letters said that the king had granted the Jews in every city the right "to assemble and defend their lives by destroying, killing and exterminating any forces of any people or province that would attack them, their little ones or their women or would try to seize their goods as plunder on the designated day in any of the provinces of King Achashverosh, namely, the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar.'" Ester 8:11-12

THESE ARE THE TWO KEYPOINTS IN THE BOOK OF ESTER: The Jewish people have a right to defend themselves & the lives of those who plot to kill the Jewish Nation will be shortened as Haman's.

I started to think about Nazi Germany & how the lives of many involved in its atrocities against Jewish people were shortened, violently. Then I started to wonder if any had subcummbed to the same death as Haman. I was astounded when I read many Nazi war criminals were executed by hanging!

As Haman was hanged in the book of Ester so were many Nazi war criminals. The lives of those who seek to exterminate Jews will be shortened as Haman's. Execution of a Nazi war criminal by hanging his body in Bruchsal, Germany after World War II.: http://bit.ly/rqJT03
This is an extraordinary example of the prophecy in the book of Ester being fulfilled and it will continue to be fulfilled for all those who seek to kill the Jewish Nation.

THE ORIGIN OF PURIM:

"Mordekhai recorded these events and sent letters to all the Jews in all the provinces of King Achashverosh, both near and far, instructing them to observe the 14th day of the month of Adar and the 15th day, every year, to commemorate the days on which the Jews obtained rest from their enemies and the month which for them was turned from sorrow into gladness and from mourning into a holiday; they were to make them days of celebrating and rejoicing, sending portions of food to each other and giving gifts to the poor." Ester 9:20-22.

"because Haman the son of Hamdata the Agagi, the enemy of the Jews, had plotted against the Jews to destroy them and had thrown pur (that is, "cast lots") to crush and destroy them;" Ester9:24
"This is why these days have been called Purim, after the word pur." Ester 9:26.

"The Jews resolved and took upon themselves, their descendants and all who might join them that without fail they would observe these two days in accordance with what was written in this letter and at the appointed time, every year; and that these days would be remembered and observed throughout every generation, every family, every province and every city; and that these days of Purim would never cease among the Jews or their memory be lost by their descendants. Then Ester the queen, the daughter of Avichayil, and Mordekhai the Jew, gave full written authority to confirm a second letter about Purim. He sent copies of it to all the Jews, to the 127 provinces of the kingdom of Achashverosh, ensuring their peace and security and requiring the observance of these days of Purim at their designated times, as Mordekhai the Jew and Ester the queen had enjoined them, and as they had established for themselves and their descendants concerning the matters of fasting and lamenting. At Ester's order these matters of Purim were confirmed and put in writing in the book." Ester 9:27-32.

Remarkably, the celebration of Purim is still alive today! Jews all over the world celebrate Purim to commemorate the days that Jews obtained rest from their enemies in the book of Ester. Against all odds the Jewish Nation lives & will continue to live as in the book of Ester.

ADONAI Tzva'ot took me to other scriptures in the Tanakh supporting the Jewish Nation's right to defend herself.

"'ADONAI said to Moshe and El'azar, the son of Aharon the cohen, "Take a census of the entire assembly of the people of Isra'el twenty years old and over, by their ancestral clans, all who are subject to military service in Isra'el." Moshe and El'azar the cohen spoke with them on the plains of Mo'av by the Yarden across from Yericho, explaining, "Those twenty years old and over who came out of the land of Egypt, as ADONAI ordered Moshe and the people of Isra'el.'" B'midbar (Numbers) 26:1-4

"The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Re'uven said to Moshe, Your servants will do as my lord orders. Our little ones, wives, flocks and all our livestock will be there in the cities of Gil'ad; but your servants will cross over, every man armed for war, before ADONAI to do battle, as my lord says." B'midbar (Numbers) 32:25-27.

"'I answered you, 'Don't be fearful, don't be afraid of them. ADONAI your God, who is going ahead of you, will fight on your behalf, just as he accomplished all those things for you in Egypt before your eyes,'" D'varim (Deuteronomy) 1:29-30.

"When you are about to go into battle, the cohen is to come forward and address the people. He should tell them, 'Listen, Isra'el! You are about to do battle against your enemies. Don't be fainthearted or afraid; don't be alarmed or frightened by them; because ADONAI your God is going with you to fight on your behalf against your enemies and give you victory." D'varim (Deuteronomy) 20:2-4.

Shalom.
