The Anti-Christ Hiding Behind Haman!
Transcribed By: Sister Torres
Steven Ben-Nun: I’m Steven Ben-Nun and you are watching Israeli News Live. You are watching today a prophetic segment of the News and a very important news broadcast today. I want to discuss with you a little bit of the information that was discussed by Prime Minister Netanyahu at the United States Congress in Washington, DC.
And it’s actually gonna be 2 different messages I’ll be doing on this tonight I’m doing the prophetic message regarding Esther because it’s something that the Prime Minister brought up at the very beginning of his speech. He insights Israel as being a people of 4,000 years old and that he was saying the nest night which is tonight is when we celebrate the Purim, the casting of lots literally. As the lots is what the word Purim means, it was when the decision was made the Jews would be annihilated and of course Mordecai revealing this plot that was to kill off all the Jews of that era. And yet he brings before the United States Congress that Iran, he actually calls them a Papal Dictator but Iran is actually the one that would be used to destroy not only the Jews but as well as the United States in anyone that opposes them around the world. I thought that was very interesting that he called him a Papal ah; Papal King speaking about the Iranian Khomeini. And yet at the same time it made me realize that though Iran is being used as a tool once again the true Papal man on the throne is actually the Pope of Rome. But seeing as he failed Pope Pius the 12th failed in getting Hitler to kill off all the Jews globally now it seems clearly that the Vatican has turned to the Muslim world to do the job for them.
So and I just really thought that this was a perfect opportunity to with the Prime Minister bringing this out to share with you the Purim Story from the Book of Esther it’s a customary thing for Jews to do on Purim is to read from the Book of Esther. And that’s exactly where we’re going to tonight so if you would turn with me in your Bibles to the Book of Esther I’ll be reading from the King James Version of this. And because it’s adequate enough there’s just a few different words in there that are not correct but that’s not anything of a major ordeal.
We start off in finding in the story that Ahasuerus which is the King’s name at that time also by the way that is Artaxerxes in the Book of Nehemiah. So we see this in the Septuagint the 2nd Edition of the Septuagint was written so Ahasuerus they wrote Artaxerxes.
So just for a little historical overview about Persia which is modern day Iran when the Jews has went into captivity and that was not just; that was only the House of Judah was not the whole Hebrew Nation the House of Israel has already been scattered more than 200 years prior to this event but the House of Judah goes into captivity as well by Nebuchadnezzar the King of Babylon their taken into captivity. And while they’re in captivity this is when it comes nearing the end of their captivity we find that Cyrus, Darius and Artaxerxes the 3 different Persians Kings who found favor or the Jews found favor in their sight actually the 1st 2 Cyrus and Darius had given orders to rebuild the Temple the 2nd Temple at that time.
And it was Artaxerxes where we can find the countdown of Daniel 70 weeks there Artaxerxes is the one that actually speaks about or the timeline for Daniel’s 70 weeks comes in. If you ever want to see a more in depth detailed study on that I write that in the book Israel Are They Still God’s People for those of you that do not know I write, that book Israel Are They Still God’s People.
You can find that on our website Israel Returns.com or as well Amazon Books and Google all kinds of places there. Anyway not here to get into books but I go into the timeline of that and who that works out so. But these were Persian Kings that were actually for Israel at that time and Artaxerxes actually seems to be one and the same as the King of Esther who Esther ends up marrying. All Nehemiah was the cupbearer a lot of things about that story that’s very interesting. So what we have here there’s a lot of symbology in the story it’s clear that Artaxerxes or Ahasuerus we’ll call him Ahasuerus for the sake of the story seeing this is the way it’s written in the King James.
But Ahasuerus he was married to Vashti and Vashti is clearly a type of Israel. She is a type of the House of Judah and he’s married to her. And the reason I say she’s a type of Israel, the House of Judah is because Ahasuerus being a type of Christ when Christ came in the time, in the Biblical Times there Vashti in this cause here being a type of the House of Judah, they were; she was not willing to come when the King summoned her.
And I know there was one time a dear friend of mine in fact he works at the White House himself said to me, I was sitting in this living room and he’s one of the Secret Service Agents there. And we were discussing this story of Esther and he told me he says Brother Steve there’s no way that Vashti could actually be a type of the Jewish people he says because she was a gentile. And secondly she didn’t want to be paraded before a bunch of drunken men. And right when he said it not know the answer myself the Holy Spirit came upon me and I said my brother you fail not knowing the Word of God. I said for the Word of God says on the Day of Pentecost when they came out and they staggered like a bunch of drunk men they said are these not all full of new wine? That was the people around them that’s what they saw.
And in the story of the King here Ahasuerus and he had invited the different nations to come down the people that were over because he basically controlled the entire world. He invited all the Princes to come and they were there just like it was on the Day of Pentecost I forget how many Nations were represented on the Day of Pentecost. And he said every man was able to drink according to his own pleasure and there was no one to compelled to do so again a perfect type of the receiving of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. No one was compelled to receive the Holy Spirit it was those that were free willing. But anyway all the tongues and the Nations of the people were gathered there but it was actually for the Jewish people.
Vashti was invited to come he wanted to show off his wife how fair she was. And this was what Christ had come He came for His wife and she refused Him. She refused Him and of course as a result of that he ends up separating himself from her, he never divorces her he separates from her. And the House of Israel is divorced we know that when she goes into captivity but also God does say later in the same chapter He says to the House of Israel, He says I am married unto you. So you know He’s able to take her back and just like He says in the Book; I believe that’s in the Book of Joel or no that’s actually in the Book of oh gosh can’t think of the name of that book there where Hosea I believe it is where He says that we she how she’s played the prostitute and etc.
But anyhow staying on track here let’s go to verse 7 and we’ll begin there in the 1st chapter (Esther) they gave them drink in the vessels of gold and, (the vessels being diverse one from another,) and royal wine in abundance. And the drinking was according to the law; none did compel: for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house that they should do according to every man’s pleasure, as I said to you.
Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus. Now she’s made a feast because why? She’s expecting the coming of the Messiah. So she is feasting, she has feast days. And in fact it also shows the timing of when the rejection comes, when she refuses to come out with the King. It was at the feast it was The Feast of Passover she refused to come be with her King and in fact sold him out instead. But anyway on the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and he names the seven chamberlains that served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king, to bring Vashti the queen before the king with the royal crown or crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty: for she was fair to look on. But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king’s commandment by his chamberlains: therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him.
And that’s interesting I mean the Chamberlains no telling what all you know the types may be in every single detail and sometimes the story is to surface so we see the type in it. But naturally they were bidden to come Israel was bidden there were; you had the 12 Apostles that were reaching out to the Jewish people of their day. You had John the Baptist that was reaching out so we had a number of witnesses trying to reach out to Israel to accept the invitation that Christ has given.
But we move on, we move on into the story here and verse 13 (Esther 1) I thought was interesting as well, then the king said to the wise men, which knew the times, (for so was the king’s manner toward all that knew law and judgment. Isn’t that interesting the Wise Men and we know that it was the Wise Men that came from the East that knew the time of His birth?
The birth of Yeshua and I know some people say well the 3 Wise Men we don’t really; as far as I remember right we don’t have a number of how many Wise Men actually came but they did come and they bore gifts.
Anyhow so we move on down (verse 1:14) it says and the next unto him was Carshena, and names off the different Wise Men; the seven princes of Persia and Media, which saw the king’s face, and which sat the first in the kingdom. Which another interesting thing there is where they’re coming from because of the fact that the Wise Men actually came from the East as well; ah; came to the East and came to Jerusalem.
So ah; but then it goes on to say what shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the king Ahasuerus by the chamberlains? And Memucan answered before the king and the princes, Vashti the queen hath not done wrong to the king only, but also to all the princes, and to all the people that are in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus. So what Israel did in the time when Yeshua came on the scene was in selling Christ out it was, it was a very disgrace period. Although we do know it was done for a purpose, we know that from knowing the story of Christ to begin with. Had they not sold Him out there’d never been life for the Gentiles either. It’s kind of the same as it goes for Queen Esther she would have never been the Queen had it not; if Vashti would have kept her place then there would be no; there would be no Esther coming into be the Queen all right?
Now let’s move on down to (Esther) chapter 2 ah; we see everything that happens to Vashti has all taken place ah; and the Royal decree goes out to give her estate unto another and when the Kings decree which he shall make shall be published throughout all the Empire we read about that there.
But we get into chapter 2 and I’m gonna kind of go quick through this cause I’m gonna cover quite a few chapters here so just bear with me. (Verse 1) After these things, when the wrath of king Ahasuerus was appeased, he remembered Vashti, and what she had done, and what was decreed against her.
Again the same thing another parallel we see the same with Christ when his anger is appeased, after Israel has reaped what she has sown He says in His Word He will not hold His wrath forever. And we have many different places Zachariah, Obadiah, Micah chapter 4 ah; Malachi so many places where He promises to redeem the House of Judah. Zachariah chapter 12 is one of the main ones where the House of Judah comes homes first so that the House of Israel will not be lifted up against the House of Judah or envy the House of Judah.
Very interesting that the different scriptural things in fact ah; that part about Zachariah because that, that could just leave a lot of questions in the mind. Let me just take you real quickly to Zachariah 12 ah; he says in chapter 12 verse 6 in that day I will make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. Interesting, interesting.
So but anyway we go there and then jumping on down we find out that ah; there; (verse 2) he sends out looking for all the young virgins through the land and that’s another interesting parallel.
When we look at the 10 virgins of the Christians Bible in the New Testament there where it speaks about the 10 virgins (Matthew 25:1); in the parable that Jesus gives He said there were 10 virgins 5 were wise and 5 were foolish. And so again the King seeks out all these virgins and then one ends up becoming the Queen much like the Church today. There are many that are called as the Bible said but few are chosen and Esther represents that few that one in a million so to speak that is actually chosen.
And Hadassah was actually Esther’s name and ah; she is a young lady she’s raised by her uncle, her mother and father were killed or dead but anyway I should say and may have been that they died ah; early on in the captivity it’s hard to say when they died. But anyway her uncle ah; not her uncle but her; let’s see it says actually in verse 7 of chapter 2 and he brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle’s daughter. Ah; so he’s actually the cousin of Esther it’s not even the uncle himself he a cousin. And she had neither father nor mother, and the maid was fair and beautiful; whom Mordecai, when her father and mother were dead, took for his own daughter. God blessed him for that work as well.
Another thing that very interesting too in chapter 2 is verse 10; Esther had not shewed her people nor her kindred: for Mordecai had charged her that she should not shew it. I found that very interesting when I was reading again through the Book of Esther and the reason being so she’s taken as one of the virgins that would be possibly selected by the King and she is given a charge not to say that she’s Jewish not to reveal her identity. And clearly Esther you can look at her as a 2 types here, you can look at her as the type of Gentile Bride which also can be looked at as a type of the fullness of the Gentiles.
Which we said recently in Genesis chapter 48 where I read that to you myself where it literally says in Hebrew that Ephraim, the Prophecy of Ephraim that he would be all over the earth and his seed would be everywhere and he would be the fullness of the Nations or fullness of the Gentiles. So he assimilates unto the entire world. And Esther it seems also not only types of Ephraim but types the House of Israel returning back because she is Jewish and she does not reveal her identity, her identity is kept secret so and that was very interesting. Now let’s go down to verse ah; oh and another thing too by the way I wanted to bring out is that Esther is adopted by her cousin, she comes in by adoption. Now there is you type of your Gentile believers that come in as well so Esther is not just limited to the House of Israel so to speak. Esther is a type of the Gentiles in the fact that she’s the adopted child which is exactly what brings in the converts of the Gentiles they came in by adoption.
So going to (Esther 2) verse 17and the king loved Esther above all the women and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti. Then the king made a great feast unto all his princes and his servants, even Esther’s feast; and he made a release to the provinces, and gave gifts, according to the state of the king. And when the virgins were gathered together the second time, then Mordecai sat in the king’s gate. Esther had not yet shewed her kindred nor her people; as Mordecai had charged her: for Esther did the commandment of Mordecai, like as when she was brought up with him; anyway very interesting.
Now when you look at Mordecai sitting at the King’s gate that is so obvious that we’re looking at the House of Judah because they’re sitting literally in Israel at the King’s Gate, they’re sitting we know that’s the gate because what did Jacob say about the Temple; where the Temple was built? Right over the Holy of Holies there where the Holy of Holies stood, he saw the ladder that went up into Heaven and ascending and descending were the angels of God. He said this is nothing else but the door to Heaven, or the Gate to Heaven. And here there’s sitting at the King’s Gate; that Israel is at the gate but they have not taken the Temple Mount. They’re only sitting at the gate. But by sitting at the gate they find out a lot of interesting things including the decree that’ll come against them. So being there is; Mordecai is in a very interesting place there. Then the King made a great, okay we know that.
Verse 19 and when the virgins were gathered together the second time, then Mordecai sat in the king’s gate. Esther had not yet shewed her kindred nor her people; as Mordecai had charged her.
Okay dropping down to verse 22 and the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it unto Esther the queen. I’m sorry let me back up to verse 21, in those days, while Mordecai sat in the king’s gate, two of the king’s chamberlains, Bigthan and Teresh, of those which kept the door, were wroth, and sought to lay hands on the king Ahasuerus. And the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it unto Esther the queen and Esther certified the king thereof in Mordecai’s name. And when inquisition was made of the matter, it was found out; therefore they were both hanged on a tree: and it was written in the book of the chronicles before the king.
That’s an interesting one and I can’t say what the type is on that but you know as I read that it just makes you wonder is that a type of the Times of Christ when they sought out false witnesses and they actually found 2 against Him.
And they witnessed against, they witnessed against Jesus and I’ve wondered if it’s that. What’s interesting though is that those 2 that were guilty like that were hung on a tree. So I don’t know that’s just hypothetical and speculation but I just thought I’d throw that out there.
Chapter 3 though after these things did king Ahasuerus promote Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him. This is the important part; this is identification of the Anti-Christ and some people might say well how could you say that? Because if Ahasuerus is the one promoting him and he is the type of Christ why would God promote Satan? Why would He promote the Pope of Rome when we know that he’s false to begin with? It’s simple; remember what the scripture says about Pharaoh; God says I have raised thee up and I have brought thee to this position to show My Glory.
Remember how it says in the New Testament how why can; ah; Paul’s writing it says about the potter and he says why makest thou me thus? And he said does not the potter have power over the clay to make one vessel to honor, one vessel to dishonor. We can’t speak against what the potter does, you see? So what is it? It’s yes God literally puts the Pope of Rome in that position to show His Glory and of course when it says Anti-Christ there are many Anti-Christ’s that because there was a Papal succession.
Even Paul said back then that Anti-Christ spirit was already working; he said many grievous wolves are already gone out among you that’s where you’re early Church fathers come into that hated the Jews. Did you see Paul hating the Jews? Never did he hate the Jews. He is the True Early Church Father not these bunch of renegades out there that they call Church fathers that hated Jews and hated women and everything else. You see Christ wasn’t a hater of women. You never saw Paul a hater of women.
Oh there’s many people that mistranslate what Paul says and try to make it look like he’s a hater of women but that’s not what Paul wrote. Even Jesus He loved Mary Magdalene more than He did any of the other Apostles and we can find that in what we consider to be extra-biblical writings about His relationship with her. You know He loved her not like ah; well you could say a husband and wife too for the simple reason not in a sexual relationship because He kept His Self-pure but the point is ah; He loved her so much. And she sat at His feet continually the woman that followed Him in the Ministry. I was with Dr. Hut from the University in Nebraska he’s a Greek Scholar we were discussing this one time on video one time, it’s actually on one of our video’s early on. And Dr. Hut says to me that he said; the contemporary writings of that time about Paul was that he was the most liberal man of the entire era, he was; even Peter was not liberal like him. And the women that preached the Gospel there’s plenty of documentation that they preached the Gospel back then. Anyhow we have messages on that in case you’re interested in those you can look under our You Tube Channel under women, messages about women there’s a lot of them there.
So anyhow we find out here that Haman is exalted and the King’s servants (Esther 3) verse 2, that were in the king’s gate; notice he’s given a seat and that seat was given to the Pope of Rome in Israel. You’re seeing Biblical Prophecy being fulfilled the Pope of Rome was given a seat at King David’s Tomb interesting isn’t it? Haman’s given a seat as well. So above all the Princes that were with him, he exalted him just like the Pope’s been exalted. And the Jews are subordinate to the Pope of Rome because they gave him a seat that sits right over the top of the Tomb of David, hum.
(Verse 2) And all the king’s servants, that were in the king’s gate, bowed, and reverenced Haman: for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence; that’s what the true believers supposed to be like Mordecai. And when you accept the Pope as God on earth as your Vicar yes then you are commanded to bow to him because you have done so. And the kings and the prince’s bow to the Pope of Rome to this day kissing his ring on his finger by the way you’ll find out later the King will give him his ring as well.
(Verse 4) They told Haman, to see whether Mordecai’s matters would stand: for he had told them that he was a Jew. And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath. See this is when Israel breaks her Covenant with Rome that’s your type for today that’s when Haman, that’s when the Pope of Rome will become full of wrath is when Israel will stop bowing to Haman, to the Pope of Rome. Benjamin Netanyahu was anointed King over Israel still bows to the Pope of Rome. Mr. Netanyahu when you will stop bowing to the Pope of Rome that Covenant will be broken that ya’ll signed. I believe the Covenant’s signed.
(Verse 6) And he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordecai alone; for they had shewed him the people of Mordecai: wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai. It’s interesting because you know the Pope Pius the 12th that’s what he was intending to do with Hitler destroy all the Jews anywhere and everywhere he possibly could. But it didn’t seem to work out too well but they’re gonna try it once again. And Brother, Sister they’re gonna try and get all the Jews all over the world, be interesting to see how they do this one. And no doubt they’re gonna use the Muslim people to do so.
It’s interesting though isn’t it? You have President Barack Obama that’s just over there and just bows down to the Iranians. Why’s he bowing down to them? You know Prime Minister Netanyahu said this is a bad deal. It is a bad deal but the problem is Mr. Prime Minister Netanyahu do you not understand the man that’s calling the shots is not the Khomeini of Tehran it’s the Pope of Rome that is going to use the Muslim people not just Tehran but all the other Muslims that they have scattered throughout the world to hunt down and to kill all the Jews they possibly can. Hitler did it in the open but he had Pope Pius the 12th in the background telling him what to do.
Anyhow let’s move down to verse 8 chapter 3 (Esther) and Haman said unto king Ahasuerus, there is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from all people; neither keep they the king’s laws: therefore it is not for the king’s profit to suffer them. If it please the king, let it be written that they may be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have the charge of the business, to bring it into the king’s treasuries. Can you not see the handwriting on the wall there? You see what I’m talking about? I think the reason why they put this in the movie about they cheat on their taxes is because he says to the King it does not profit him. He says there’s laws are divers from all people neither keep they the Kings laws therefore it is not for the King’s profit to suffer them; interesting isn’t it? That’s kind of like and I caught; I got a lot of flak when I mentioned that raiser of taxes according to the 7th King that would come but he would only continue a little bit but there would be an 8th and he would be of the 7th. By the way when it says that he’s of the 7th this was an interesting thing here to see; when he says he’s of the 7th it’s because technically when Benedict resigned he’s still the Pope.
The Pope of Rome is the Pope until he’s dead. So when Pope Francis takes his place, when it says the Bible (Revelation 17:11) says the 8th King is of the 7th because he’s actually serving out the dynasty of the 7th King. And then people criticize that when I said that you know that he went after he tax evaders. I said it was showing that he was a raiser of taxes. And you have some critics out there saying oh that’s really great now because he’s trying to get those tax dodgers ah; you say he’s a raiser of taxes. My point is; is that he raised tax revenue for not just the United States, not just all these different governments of the world, he raised it for himself, for the Vatican because the United States taxes go to England and England pays it to the Vatican. That’s what I mean by raiser of taxes not that he raised our taxes higher he was actually raising money, tax money getting it from the people. It’s exactly what Haman was looking to do. He was basically like the movie even says they were just tax dodgers let’s do away with them.
Remember Psalms 83 they take council, they council in secret on how to deal with the Jewish people. The Jews we are considered a problem. Even in the movie they made it clear the Jews were the tax dodgers interesting. I don’t say there’s not a lot of truth to that now; I’m not; don’t get me wrong but it’s the slyness of how the devil works. And remember like I said he; the 8th King is of the 7th because why Pope Benedict is still alive. So Pope Francis is actually serving out Pope Benedict’s term though he’s the 8th King he’s still of the 7th King or the 7th dynasty in that case there. So we go to find out he’s willing to pay into the treasuries which is exactly what Rome does, Rome will pay the bill. Pope Francis will pay the bill to be able to annihilate the Jews.
Don’t worry he’ll pay whoever he needs to pay; he’ll pay every Muslim terrorists there is out there. And then he’ll make it look good and have the United States fight and kill and die and everything else to make it look like their fighting terrorism. You wait and watch and see what happens.
(Esther 3:10) And the king took his ring from his hand, and gave it unto Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the Jews’ enemy. Rome’s always been Israel’s enemy that’s a Biblical one for you too. Esau by the way is Israel’s enemy, the enemy of God and we find out in Obadiah that Esau is or Edom is Rome because they’re the ones that destroyed the 2nd Temple. And that’s what God says in the book of Obadiah and he blamed that on Esau and it was Titus the Roman General that did just that. So we know where the Edomite’s are now reign at they’re reigning from Rome.
So anyhow he takes and he gives him his ring, look at all the people that bow down and kiss the Popes ring. It’s interesting isn’t it? World dignitaries bowing and kissing the Pope’s ring, oh my gosh so anyway he give him the ring and that’s basically when the Pope of Rome be given the authority cause look at that remember Ahasuerus is a type of Christ and Satan can do nothing without God’s permission! And in this case here the King; Artaxerxes his real name is a type of Christ giving permission for the Pope of Rome to carry out his plot. As we see in the times of the Holocaust it just drove the Jews to their homeland and the Iranian’s actually stated that if we can get all the Jews into one place it’ll save us time so we don’t have to hunt them down all over the world and kill them; that’s what I say.
Now verse 13 skip down to verse 13 and the letters were sent by posts into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey. Exactly that’s like I said Pope Pius the12th that what he was doing with Hitler and that’s what they did they took; they killed both young, old, men, women, children didn’t care what it was and took all their spoils. The job wasn’t finished so now they’re gonna come back and do it again. So the Iranians leaders that’s the Rome’s new Hitler for today.
Goodness let’s go on to chapter 4 (Esther) and when Mordecai perceived; actually that word is yodah which means and when Mordecai knew all that was done I don’t; I didn’t want to you to think the word perceive because the word perceive is almost as if he had ah; like a revelation of something and it’s not a revelation. It’s in Hebrew he actually says Mordecai yodah. So when Mordecai knew all that was done, Mordecai rent his clothes, and put on sackcloth with ashes, and went out into the; excuse me; and cried with a loud and a bitter cry. And came even before the king’s gate: for none might enter into the king’s gate clothed with sackcloth.
And there’s a good possibility that this is a type in Zachariah 12 where it says and I will pour upon the House of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of Grace and Supplication and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced and they shall mourn for Him as one mourneth his only son and shall be in bitterness for him as one that is in bitterness for his 1st born. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem as in the mourning of Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. The land will mourn each family apart.
And then it goes on to show how the House of David, the House of Levi, the House of Shimei and the House of Nathan I believe it is apart. All of those are the House of Judah; it’s the houses, each one ah; Shimei from the House of Benjamin, David and Nathan are from the House of Judah and of course Levi are the Levities that were the 3 Tribes that were present at the time when Christ was there. So it’s interesting and we see that and Mordecai being a representation of the House of Judah because those are the Jews there in the Kings province there and he’s sitting at the gate mourning in sackcloth and in ashes. Because why? He now knows what’s going to happen; his eyes have been opened. And that’s why I kind of wondered is it a possibility that types the recognizing of Christ the Messiah at that point.
Now it came to pass on the 3rd day; I’m moving on; I’m sorry I’m still in chapter 4 back over to chapter 4 verse 3; and in every province, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, there was great mourning among the Jews, and fasting, and weeping, and wailing; and many lay in sackcloth and ashes. This is as this decree became known all over the world and I think this may have a lot to do with when we see the Jews begin to return home from around the world that’s still even a greater exodus yet to come.
(Esther 4:3) So Esther’s maids and her chamberlains came and told it her. Then was the queen exceedingly grieved; and she sent raiment to clothe Mordecai, and to take away his sackcloth from him: but he received it not. Then called Esther for Hatach, one of the king’s chamberlains, whom he had appointed to attend upon her, and gave him a commandment to Mordecai, to know what it was, and why it was. So Hatach went forth to Mordecai unto the street of the city, which was before the king’s gate. And Mordecai told him of all that had happened unto him, and of the sum of the money that Haman had promised to pay to the king’s treasuries for the Jews, to destroy them.
As I said the Pope will finance this war. He’ll definitely; he’s the one that financing the war to annihilate the Jews completely. And so at any rate though ah; there’s a; (verse 8) also he gave him the copy of the writing of the decree that was given at Shushan to destroy them, to shew it unto Esther, and to declare it unto her, and to charge her that she should go in unto the king, to make supplication unto him, and to make request before him for her people. And Hatach came and told Esther the words of Mordecai. Again Esther spake unto Hatach, and gave him commandment unto Mordecai.
Now let me bring something to your attention here; she’s go into the King’s presence. You see when we think about, there’s a lot of people we look at the Rapture or however you want to look at this here but and I’ve actually said before in times past; I believe that this is when she goes before the King and I said I believe it’s like a type of the rapture. But there’s one thing that I saw when I was re-reading this again that has actually concerned me a little bit about that being a type of the Rapture. It seems to be more so that Esther because she is a Jew, is a type of the House of Israel because why? She has found favor in the sight of the King to begin with and is married to him. And there are many not and again don’t make the mistake there are Gentile believer’s out there just as much and even believe in the Lord Jesus Christ but in the House of Israel with the Tribe of Ephraim that have lost basically their identity of being Jewish that are dispersed throughout the entire world. Many of them have come in and believed Yeshua to be the Messiah and therefore they have found favor in the King’s sight in regards to that and they’re married to Him. But see it wasn’t just a Jew that was among the virgins of His Kingdom there was also Gentile woman as well showing that the King has more than just Jewish, a Jewish bride there he actually has; he has a bride that is a Gentile bride as well.
That’s why I say don’t misunderstand when I say the House of Israel. The reason why Esther is married to him is because the House of Israel still is married to the King! He said so in His Word even though He gave her a divorce; a bill of divorce He says later in the same chapter He says repent turn He says for I Am married unto you.
And Esther here types the House of Israel and what’s interesting in this is because Mordecai sends a word back to her and tells her you know she wants to know what ails him. And Mordecai says to her ah; let me just find that; well yeah, look down to (Esther 4) verse 13 Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Can you imagine this? She had came to place this is like ah; Ephraimites that in the fullness of the Gentiles are the House of Israel period that are recognize that you today those of you that are Christians that know who Jesus Christ is as your Savior. And you have come into the economy of Christ, you have believed upon Him but yet you know you’re Jewish. You know you have Jewish ancestry this is your time to plead for God and as He said for such a purpose of this were you born. And if you don’t do it He’ll raise it up from somewhere else. He said think not that you’ll be spared in your own house no matter if you’re a Christian in another part of the world those Muslims, the Vatican will use them to kill all the Christian’s that don’t agree with their theology. So you won’t be spared either this is what you’re raised up for to do that’s why I had to back up and think that doesn’t actually represent a Rapture at that point there because why? He; Mordecai says to her think it not of thyself that thou shalt escape the King’s house more than all the Jews.
In other words even though you’ve accepted Yeshua to be your Savior it doesn’t mean you lose the fact of being the Queen no you just die being the Queen but your people will die as well. And it’s the time that we have to pray for the Jews more than any other time. Let me kind of go quickly through this here.
Let’s go down to chapter 5 now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king’s house, over against the king’s house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house. And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favor in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the scepter. Then said the king unto her, what wilt thou, Queen Esther and what is thy request? It shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.
And of course as we know she later she invites him to the banquet she prepares a banquet for him and Haman. And she asked them to both come Haman doesn’t really know what’s going on and we especially in verse 12 when it say Haman said moreover, Yea, Esther the queen did let no man come in with the king unto the banquet that she had prepared but myself; and tomorrow am I invited unto her also with the king. See the Pope thinks he’s doing a great job too. He thinks he’s somebody see. An ah; look at verse 13 yet all this availeth me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king’s gate. He just you know Israel, the Jewish people in Israel today, the House of Judah sitting right there at the Gate of the Temple Mount is a thorn in Pope Francis’ side and he wants to see that change. That’s what those secret meetings remember in Psalms 83, they have those secret meetings together. Another place ah; I think it was in Micah 4 they got secret councils what to do with the Jews.
Verse 14 then said Zeresh his wife and all his friends unto him, Let a gallows be made of fifty cubits high, and tomorrow speak thou unto the king that Mordecai may be hanged thereon: then go thou in merrily with the king unto the banquet. And the thing pleased Haman; and he caused the gallows to be made. Isn’t that interesting Haman and his wife there’s your Churches, there’s your Churches all joining up together his friends because he rules every Nation under the earth. There is your secret meetings once again, destroy the Jews.
Huhm! Chapter 6 (verse 3) and the King said, what honor? And that’s where he, that’s where he ends up making him honor Israel because he’s ready to kill him and yet the King keeps; the King ends up causing Haman to have to honor Mordecai because he remember the kindness that Mordecai has shown to him when it was re-read to him, remember that’s what happens God; Israel begins to come up in God’s memory.
And what did God do? He made the Catholic Church come up with the idea of making a getting ahold of the Land of Israel. He sent the British in there to take it over because the Pope of Rome thought he would go in there and take over. And instead all the Jews ended up coming home, they found a way in and the Pope’s plan backfired on him and basically God made the Pope of Rome parade the Jewish people around on his horse. The Jews have come home. You know under the British Mandate they wouldn’t let the Jews come in? Oh they said it was a homeland for the Jews but it was only for the ones they had selected. But finally something broke and the Jews got in, legally or not legally they got in anyway and that’s when Israel began to come in and that’s when they became a Nation in 1948. So many interesting things are happening here.
Let’s close this off here and as I come to the end here ah; we find out that verse 6 here chapter 6 so Haman came in. And the king said unto him, what shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honor? And that’s just what we spoke about that.
Going down to verse 13 and Haman told Zeresh; this was after he was so humiliated by having to bring Mordecai around on the horse. Do you know the horse represents a beast of burden, a beast of strength; he’s also a beast of war? God made the Vatican bring Israel to her Homeland. So his wife says to him; this is Haman’s wife; and all his friends everything that had befallen him. They tell her; tell him them all that; he tells them all that and she says ah; excuse me. And then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him. I think that’s kind of interesting because no doubt there are those that sit in the meeting and this is what I find interesting to begin with; he already knows it was a proven fact he knows he’s a Jew that’s why he put the decree out but then in one of these secret meetings the word comes from him from the Wise Men and they said if he be of the seed of the Jews, you see even Rome and these people that are meeting together as we see in the Khazar theory and all this other nonsense going on that the Jews are really not the Jews.
And even there’s a lot of people jumped on this ban wagon now it’s a racial thing that’s sad. You know the Jews were both; we’re all different colors type people there because that was also assimilation through time. It’s not just one race of people just like the Jews that are there today sometimes they get that stuck in their head too. You got to be olive complexion and brown eyes that’s not true! The Jewish people have been dispersed to all the world their all kinds of people. And they question whether or not Mordecai was really a Jew, same thing today they question whether or not the Jews in the Homeland now are really Jews.
But they said if really is the seed of Judah you have begun to fall. And it will be your downfall and that’s something that they are worried about because some of his friends and some of the Wise Men amongst him like for example like John Hagee who has really been a stanch supporter of Israel all of his life knows if these are really the Jews I wouldn’t doubt that Hagee said that to the Pope or to the Vatican people. They might have told him they’re not really Jews their Khazar’s they’re not really Jews we’re gonna help bring back the real Jews maybe they told this to John Hagee maybe that’s what made him crack I don’t know. It’s just speculation. But you know the thing is Hagee’s got enough sense to know too and I’m sure he would have told them that you know if these really are the seed of Israel, these are really the seed of the Judah it’ll be your downfall.
That’s exactly what happens so the King and Haman came to the banquet with Esther the Queen and this is when Esther finally speaks out. He’s indicted let’s go (Esther 7) to verse 5 then the King Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther, she makes petition for her life is what she’s doing, she’s already been making petition for her life. She said that her people are gonna be sold for bondmen and bondwomen and if I held my tongue; this is in verse 4, although the enemy could not countervail the king’s damage. Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so? And Esther said, the adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen. And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king.
Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face. And as we know Haman was hung on gallows that he built for Mordecai. So God would do the same to Rome, He will destroy that city.
