ROMANS 11:11: "I SAY THEN, HAVE THEY (THE JEWISH PEOPLE) STUMBLED THAT THEY SHOULD FALL? CERTAINLY NOT! BUT THROUGH THEIR FALL, TO PROVOKE THEM TO JEALOUSY (SO THAT THEY MAY BE SAVED), SALVATION HAS COME TO THE GENTILES"

PURIM

On the 4th March 2015, Jews all over the world will be partaking in the ‘Fast of Esther’ that precedes the celebration of the holiday of ‘Purim’.

‘Purim’, which this year takes place on the 5th March, could be called the happiest holiday of the year for Jewish people.
It is a time for giving to the poor, exchanging gifts with family and friends, dressing up in fancy dress, and generally a time for rejoicing.
If one walks down an Israeli street on ‘Purim’, you will see many Jewish people – both children and adults – in fancy dress; it truly is a wonderful time of the year for Jewish people.

‘Purim’ commemorates the events found in the Book of Esther. These events took place around 200 B.C.E. in which a man, by the name of Haman, who hated the Jewish people of the day, devised a plan to destroy the Jews.
By casting ‘pur’ (lots), he decided on a day to destroy the Jews, the date being the 14th day in the Hebrew month of ‘Adar’, which is the date Purim is always celebrated.
The word ‘Purim’ comes from the Hebrew word for ‘lots’ (‘Pur’).
It is a story of great courage in which a Hebrew girl, Esther, becomes queen and, together with her uncle, Mordecai, foils Haman’s evil scheme.
Esther and Mordecai save the Jewish people and Haman is hanged on his own gallows which he prepared for Mordecai.

In synagogue on the evening of ‘Purim’, the entire ‘Megillah’ Esther (scroll of Esther) is read, and every time the name of Haman is mentioned, people shake rattles, stamp their feet and shout to drown out Haman’s name.                                                                                                                                 

A traditional food, which is eaten during ‘Purim’, is ‘Hamantashen’, a delicious cake filled with either Poppy seeds or cream cheese.

I encourage you to read the Book of Esther, which is the only book in the bible in which G-d is not mentioned, and see how an ordinary girl courageously rose above herself and saved an entire nation.

Perhaps the lesson we can learn from ‘Purim’ is that, as believers in Yeshua, ordinary people can courageously rise up, and by taking the gospel to unsaved family, friends, colleagues, strangers and Jewish people you know can, through Yeshua, change the eternal destinies of many people, saving them from eternal death to eternal life.

To Jewish people all over the world, we wish you a Happy Purim


 

 

 

RETURN TO ISRAEL

Once again anti-Semitism is rearing its ugly head.

In this year, which has only just begun, there have been a number of murderous attacks on Jewish people and institutions in Europe – Ukraine, France and now Denmark.

And these dastardly attacks will increase…and no, I’m not being pessimistic, it’s prophesied in the ‘Tenach’ (Old Testament).

As horrific as these attacks are, it is in line with prophecy: Jeremiah 16:14-16: “Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD, “that it shall no more be said, ‘The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. “Behold, I will send for many fishermen,” says the LORD, “and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.” ”

A number of times in the ‘Tenach’ G-d speaks about bringing the Jewish people back from the Diaspora to the Jewish homeland, Israel.
However, why should Jewish people leave their comfortable lives and go to Israel; a land under the constant threat of war; a land with its own unique language and culture; a land where only the tough survive?

However, G-d wants His people back in their homeland…and He will use any means to get them back – even anti-Semitism.
Anti-Semitism will escalate, especially in Europe. It is precisely those who perpetrate anti-Semitism who are the “hunters” referred to in Jeremiah 16:16.
And the scripture tells us that “they (the hunters) shall hunt them (the Jewish people) from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.”

But why does G-d want the Jewish people back in Israel?

Because it is to Israel – specifically Jerusalem – that the Jewish ‘Mashiach’ (Messiah), Yeshua, will return.
And when He returns to Jerusalem, the ‘Tenach’ tells us that “they (the Jewish people) will look on Him (Yeshua) whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.” (Zechariah 12:10).

You see, the ‘Tenach’ tells us that the day is coming when Jewish people will, as a nation, accept Yeshua as their L-rd and Saviour…Which is why G-d wants as many Jews in Israel as possible on the day the ‘Mashiach’, Yeshua, returns.

And the day of the return of Yeshua is closer than you think.

The horrific acts of murder that we have seen in this year is a wake-up call, not only for the Jews of Ukraine, France and Denmark, but for Jews everywhere to begin making ‘aliyah’ to Israel.
