PURIM (2 Day Feast)
February 19th - 20th, 2019
Biblical reference: Esther 9:21
What is it about
During the reign of King Ahasuerus in the Medo-Persian captivity, Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite (the enemy of all the Jews from the seed of Amalek (Ester Chapter 3) due to his hatred towards Mordecai, devised a plan against the Jews to destroy them, and cast Pur, i.e. Lots to consume them and to destroy them. Queen Esther (the niece of Mordecai) made petition to King Ahasuerus to help deliver her people from the hands of Haman (Esther 7 Chapter). Haman eventually was hung on the same gallows which he built for the purpose of hanging Mordecai (Ester 7:8). How do we celebrate it
This Holy Day is celebrated by feasting and reading through the scriptures to get the history of the events that lead to the Jews being saved from their enemies by the Most High and Mordecai and Esther. It is also a time to send gifts to each other.
Esther 9:19 Therefore the Jews of the villages, that dwelt in the unwalled towns, made the fourteenth day of the month Adar a DAY of GLADNESS and FEASTING, and a GOOD DAY, and of SENDING PORTIONS (GIFTS) ONE to ANOTHER.
How Christ will fulfill this Holy day:
The day of PURIM signifies how our Lord and Savior under the command of the Heavenly Father will defend His people from the hands of their enemies (Psalms 72:14, Psalms 86:14, Psalms 104:4, Psalms 140:11, 2 Samuel 22:3, Psalms 18:48, Psalms 59: 1-2, 2 Esdras 13:32-38) #purim
