Here is the:
THE COMPLETE BOOK OF ESTHER (with the additions that are missing in our Bibles) – for anyone interested.
In the Hebrew language, it is called MEGILAT ESTHER which means SCROLL OF ESTHER.
Shalom, Note that the following is just a summary:
THE BIBLICAL FESTIVAL OF PURIM/LOTS
YAHUVEH (YAHWEH) GOD’S Festival called Purim/Lots which is also the Festival of Queen Esther a.k.a Hadassah is coming up.
Purim 2021 will begin in the evening of Thursday 25 February and end in the evening of Friday 26 February.
On this day, YAH (GOD) ALMIGHTY expects us:
👍 to fast (wait on) HIM and pray to HIM as HIS Holy Bride or Guest – ask for deliverance from Anti-Semitism (religious persecution).
👍 hold a Holy Convocation during which we read and study the Book of Esther from beginning to end. Alternatively spend quality alone time with YAH reading the Book of Esther and using it to pray. Take time off work for this.
👍to break our fast with a Special Holy Communion called a Purim Seder during which we share Hamantashan cookies and other Purim delicacies.
👍bless those in need with Mishloach Manot:
Mishloach manot, or shalach manos, and also called a Purim basket, are gifts of food or drink that are sent to family, friends and others on Purim day. The mitzvah (commandment) of giving mishloach manot derives from the Book of Esther.
👉👉👉 PURIM (LOTS) IS ALWAYS 4 WEEKS AWAY FROM PESACH (PASSOVER)!👈👈👈 The Passover Festival is a very important festival as we get to remember and celebrate our deliverance from Egyptian bondage as well as YAHUSHUA’S (JESUS’, not Yeshua!!!) death and Resurrection! – Layers upon layers of history.
I urge you not to celebrate/observe Shrove (Pancake) Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, the Lent 40 days fasting around this time, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter anymore, please, as they are pagan and therefore satanic/demonic!
👍PURIM IS ALSO 2 WEEKS AWAY FROM THE Exodus 12:1-2 ROSH HA SHANAH (NEW YEAR’S DAY)!
So, Purim marks the beginning of the Preparation for the Spring High Holy Days Season.
These Biblical Festivals mean so much to the LORD YAHWEH ALMIGHTY. They will also help us to understand the Bible so much better. We start to eat proper Spiritual Meat instead (of the usual spiritual milk) we have been taking for years.
May you be blessed as you obey YAH ALMIGHTY, in YAHUSHUA’S Name, Amen!
There is so much to say about Purim. Some audios have been recorded and these include a bit more useful information. Here they are:
Remain blessed. Will share the prayer points for the FAST OF ESTHER (TA’ANIT ESTHER) later on today (in the night).
In the meantime, prepare today by starting to read this week’s TORAH Portion which is called: TETZAVEH/YOU COMMAND as it may be challenging to read and/or study it in the coming week until next Shabbat (Saturday 27th February 2021).
The Teaching for last week’s TORAH Portion called TERUMAH/HEAVE OFFERING will be shared as soon as possible.
