In summary, The Feast of ESTHER is here now (nightfall of Wednesday 28th February to nightfall of Thursday 1st March 2018)!

We are commemorating the deliverance from execution and extinction of our ancestors, the Children of Israel (a.k.a Jews) as arranged by Haman the Agagite. To learn more about the Amalekites, go to our blog. Esther was a crucial person in history as she helped to preserve the Jewish people from whom the MASHIACH/MESSIAH had been prophesied to come to the earth.

  • This is a time to FAST and PRAY (FAST OF ESTHER) from nightfall of 28/02/2018 until nightfall of 01/03/2018 if outside of Israel. Otherwise if you are in Israel, PURIM finishes on nightfall of 02/03/2018! She did it for 3 days but we do it for one day.
  • Read the SCROLL/BOOK OF ESTHER tonight (Night Vigil) as well as during the day time tomorrow (Thursday 1st March 2018).
  • Give to the Poor and Needy/charity
  • Give 2 types of food to a fellow breathren (man to woman and woman to man) that is to say in the Hebrew Language, -MISHLOACH MANOT or MISHLOACH MANOS or SHALACH MANOS.
  • Break your fast with KIDDUSH and a special meal which includes HAMANTASHEN (cookies all about evil Haman) plus some wine.
  • Sing Praises and Worship unto YAH (a.k.a ELOHIM). Dance unto YAH!!
  • You can also do all this dressed up in a costume related to the FESTIVAL OF ESTHER, such as a King, Queen, Mordechai, Haman, Warrior, etc. Dressing as a clown implies making a mockery out of the Amalekites who are desirous to destroy Israel but will never prevail in YAHUSHUA’S name!!! AMEN! Avoiding wearing leather if you can as we are not meant to wear it!

As the Bride or Guest of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH, you need the Miracle that ESTHER and the other Children of Israel experienced then, in these perilous end times. Bank your prayers with YAH now for the future!

 

HAPPY and JOYOUS Feast of PURIM (a.k.a Feast of ESTHER)💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽!!!!

CHAG PURIM SAMEACH
(Translation: Happy PURIM/LOTS Holiday)!!!

 

What is PURIM? What is it all about?

The jolly festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day,” as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther).

The Story in a Nutshell

The Persian Empire of the 4th century BCE extended over 127 lands, and all the Jews were its subjects. When King Ahasuerus had his wife, Queen Vashti, executed for failing to follow his orders, he arranged a beauty pageant to find a new queen. A Jewish girl, Esther, found favor in his eyes and became the new queen, though she refused to divulge her nationality.

Meanwhile, the Jew-hating Haman was appointed prime minister of the empire. Mordechai, the leader of the Jews (and Esther’s cousin), defied the king’s orders and refused to bow to Haman. Haman was incensed, and he convinced the king to issue a decree ordering the extermination of all the Jews on the 13th of Adar, a date chosen by a lottery Haman made.

Mordechai galvanized all the Jews, convincing them to repent, fast and pray to G‑d. Meanwhile, Esther asked the king and Haman to join her for a feast. At a subsequent feast, Esther revealed to the king her Jewish identity. Haman was hanged, Mordechai was appointed prime minister in his stead, and a new decree was issued, granting the Jews the right to defend themselves against their enemies.

On the 13th of Adar, the Jews mobilized and killed many of their enemies. On the 14th of Adar, they rested and celebrated. In the capital city of Shushan, they took one more day to finish the job.

Why Is It Called Purim?

Purim means “lots” in ancient Persian. The holiday was thus named since Haman had thrown lots to determine when he would carry out his diabolical scheme. You can pronounce this name many ways. In Eastern tradition, it is called poo-REEM. Among Westerners, it is often called PUH-rim. Some Central-European communities even call it PEE-rim. (WARNING: Calling this holiday PYOO-rim—as English speakers are sometimes wont to do—is a surefire newbie cover-blower.)

 

 

Purim Observances: What to do on PURIM?

The following are also called MITZVOT (plural for MITZVAH):

  • Reading of the Megillah (book of Esther), which recounts the story of the Purim miracle. This is done once on the eve of Purim and then again on the following day.
  • Giving money gifts to at least two poor people.
  • Sending gifts of two kinds of food to at least one person (Mishloach Manot / Shalach manos).
  • A festive Purim feast, which often includes wine or other intoxicating beverages.

 

 

 

TZEDAKHAK (Giving to the poor and needy people):

Matanot LaEvyonim is Hebrew for “gifts to the poor.” On Purim, every Jew is required to give a minimum of two gifts to two people in need. The gifts should be food or money. Often synagogues join together on Purim to raise money to give to the needy.

Reading of the MEGILLAH ESTHER (a.k.a SCROLL OF ESTHER):

Purim.jpg
MEGILLAT ESTER / SCROLL WITH THE BIBLICAL STORY OF ESTHER

 

On Purim, it is a mitzvah (commandment) to hear Megillat Esther (The Book of Esther)–which is referred to simply as the Megillah (scroll)–read out loud. The Megillah tells the story of Purim, a tale of a princess, a villain, and a hero.

There is a special atmosphere in the synagogue during the Megillah reading. Children and sometimes adults arrive in costumes such as traditional Mordechai and Esther disguises.

Everyone brings noise makers which they shake whenever “Haman”, the villain in the Purim story, is mentioned during the reading. Another custom was to write Haman’s name on one’s shoe soles and to stamp one’s feet until the oppressor’s name was erased. The custom of making a noise when Haman’s name is mentioned is very ancient and widespread.

Sharing a Special Meal which includes HAMANTASCHEN (cookies):

It is a mitzvah to eat Seudat Purim (a festive meal) on Purim day. A traditional food is known as a ‘Haman hat’ which is eaten starting with biting off the three corners of the hat.

Another Purim custom related to food is Mishloach Manot or Shlach Manos (sending of portions – food baskets). Part of the Purim atmosphere is seeing children and adults, in costume, walking through the neighborhood giving baskets and plates filled with hamantashan and other goodies to family, friends, and neighbors.

At the festive meal, and during the rest of the day, we eat hamantashen (Haman’s ears). Kreplach is another food often eaten at the festive meal.

Drinking of Wine (but do not drink excessively as commanded in the Book of Proverbs):

 

YAHUSHUA’S INSTRUCTIONS ON
HOW TO CELEBRATE PURIM

ELISABETH:

There is NO commandment that we EVER drink to intoxication, particularly on a Holy Feast day. This is a false teaching by those who use this and other celebrations as an excuse to drink…and woe unto them for deceiving others into believing it is alright to get drunk on a Holy Day!

Shame on Israel and the Rabbis! “In Israel, street parades, called Adloyada (which means “until we can’t tell” (the difference between cursing Haman and blessing Mordechai), have become popular on Purim.”

When I read this I admit I was beyond furious at this teaching of the Rabbis foolishness to drink until intoxicated and no longer know the difference between cursing Haman and blessing Mordaccai.

Where is it in the Holy Scriptures that such confusion should come upon us until we cannot tell the difference between blessing our enemies and cursing them?

Oh Israel, how far you have fallen from Holiness, Do you really think Abraham or Moses would approve of this?

THERE IS A LIE THAT GOES FORTH ON PURIM MOCKING THE INTENTIONS OF THIS HOLY CELEBRATION FOR WE KNOW THIS IS AGAINST YAHUVEH’S WILL TO GET DRUNK AND WE ARE NOT TO EVER DRINK UNTIL INTOXICATION! ONLY THE DOCTRINES OF A DEVIL WOULD TEACH SUCH A THING! WOE BE UNTO THE RABBIS WHO TEACH THIS AND DO THIS! IN FACT THE ONLY WINE WE ARE TO BE FILLED WITH IS THE NEW WINE FROM HEAVEN FROM THE RUACH HA KODESH!

PURIM is to be a Day of Holy celebration where Esther’s and Mordaccai’s enemies were proven to be YAHUVEH’S enemies because of the obedience and faith in YAHUVEH, her beauty and the Purity of Queen Esther. The Bride of YAHUSHUA is to be all of these things and stand as she did without spot or wrinkle! We are Spiritual Israel standing in the gap for Physical, sinful Israel until they return to Holiness and accept YAHUSHUA as Messiah. Just as Esther pleaded for the Hebrew people, so too is the Bride of YAHUSHUA to do the same thing.

Esther fasted before she approached the throne, I have been receiving confirmation of fasting for those who are healthy enough to do this, this should be done the day before Purim (except when the day before is Shabbat – then we fast on the previous Thursday instead) asking YAHUSHUA to cleanse us of anything that offends HIM and YAHUVEH so we can be a better witness for the Kingdom of Heaven and stand before our Messiah and Creator and ask for the same mercy and blessings that the King had offered Esther and ask in YAHUSHUA’S name for the same blessings.

Sing Along with Us to “Mishenichnas Adar”

 

 

 

 

Costumes (can be worn as a form of celebration and/or mockery of every Haman:

The most popular way to celebrate Purim is to dress up in costumes. The costumes mark the reversal of fate and the fact that Esther concealed her origins.

Purim Plays, called Purim Shpiels, are also prevalent as a way to increase our joy on the holiday. In Israel, street parades, called Adloyada (which means “until we can’t tell” (the difference between cursing Haman and blessing Mordechai), have become popular on Purim. Carnivals and parties are also common ways to celebrate Purim.

PURIM INSTRUCTIONS
HOW TO APPROACH THE
THRONE OF YAHUVEH
Given to Apostle Elisabeth Elijah March 9, 2006

Beloved Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH and those who truly love and worship YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA…

I share this new teaching with you with great love for all of you who have taken the time to show your love for my husband and me and this Ministry…especially this month of March. I have been so blessed as I receive your postal letters and emails. Thank you for being a blessing unto us as you put action behind your words. We try so hard to be a blessing unto you.

I have been given instructions from YAHUSHUA on what to do this Purim that you won’t find any Orthodox or Messianic Jews doing. Until now, when these instructions are being released, some of this has been kept secret. My husband and I have never even celebrated Purim this way before. In fact, I am writing this on March 9, 2006, under the anointing.

It would be a desire of my heart that, if we could have, we would have been honored to join with all of you who take this Holy Time seriously. All of you who will do this with great reverence and fear as we approach the Throne of YAHUVEH on our knees or faces with a humble spirit in the name of YAHUSHUA. Doing this wearing HIS robes of righteousness, not going in our name, but in HIS name.

These instructions are really for those who have a desire to be called the Bride of YAHUSHUA and who truly have been trying to live obedient and Holy, as a living sacrifice unto YAHUSHUA.

 

Romans 12:1-2
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of YAHUVEH, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto YAHUVEH, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of YAHUVEH.
These instructions are for those who worship YAHUSHUA, our soon coming Messiah and Bridegroom, and who put YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA first in life and love. Not compromising with sin or the devil. These instructions are for those who desire to be set apart and Holy and used for YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA’S Praise, Honor, and Glory!

If that is you, read, heed, and be blessed.

If you think this is foolishness and you are here to mock, for your own soul’s sake…stop reading now! If you don’t believe this Ministry is truly Holy and YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA speak forth from it Truths from Heaven, and that I am ordained to speak forth these prophetic messages…then why would you want to risk the wrath of YAHUVEH and continue reading? This Ministry is not for you. I was not sent to you. I do not want to cast my pearls before swine.

For all others who truly do consider this Ministry a blessing, please read on.

ENTER INTO HIS PRESENCE!

When Purim starts we shall enter into the presence of YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA with anointed praise and worship and prayer. I cannot stress how Holy of a time this is. Reading the book of Esther and asking YAHUSHUA to unlock the mysteries in it reserved for the Bride is another thing we are to do before approaching YAHUVEH’S throne.

[This was in 2006] This will be the first Purim during which my husband and I are traveling a long distance to meet with others who are Holy. We are being led to invite them to this Holy time before the Throne of YAHUVEH on Purim.

If you also are being led to invite others with this personal audience before the Throne of YAHUVEH in the name of YAHUSHUA. Make sure you know beyond a shadow of a doubt they also share the same love and passion for YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA and realize this is so very sacred. If you truly do it with the right heart, you should actually feel the presence in some way, the anointing, the love, and yes, even the fear as Esther did. The Holy Scriptures say “The beginning of wisdom is the fear of YAHUVEH”

See yourself before the Throne of the Eternal One, our Creator and Abba (Daddy) called YAHUVEH. Only through the anointing of the RUACH ha KODESH (HOLY SPIRIT) can this be done. It is not the counterfeit visualization. It is called anointing. My husband and I have felt this many times, and believe me it is not to be taken lightly. Never go in your own name, only in the name of YAHUSHUA can we approach the Throne.

Some may not feel comfortable with HIS Hebrew name, but this isn’t the time to use His Greek name JESUS. Now is the time to recognize that YAHUSHUA was born on this earth as a Jew and given a Hebrew name by HIS Hebrew Mother for a purpose, and that name means YAH SAVES! YAHUVEH SAVES!

This is a constant reminder how YAHUVEH gave us an intercessor before the Throne of YAHUVEH because, by ourselves, none of us can be Holy enough! That includes any lies from the Catholic church that say you can call upon the name of various saints who were born human, including Mother Mary. No, no name is Holy enough to approach the Throne of YAHUVEH but HIS Son YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH (the Messiah).

Just as surely as why we celebrate. The Hebrew people had an intercessor named Queeen Esther and we celebrate this Hebrew Holy Celebration called Purim. Just as satan tried to wipe the Hebrew people off the face of the earth then, so too satan wants to kill everyone who worships and serves and strives to be Holy and obedient to YAHUVEH and YAHUSHA now!

We are Holy Spiritual Israel standing in the gap for physical Israel until Israel comes with repentance and love, worshipping and accepting the only Prince of peace and King of Kings who is YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH!

YAHUSHUA is the Son of YAHUVEH sent from Heaven, the Only Sinless Sacrificial lamb without blemish, born from a Hebrew virgin woman named Mary (in Hebrew ‘Miriam’). When Israel receives the fact that YAHUSHUA was crucified at Calvary as a sin sacrifice and arose from the dead on the 3rd day, proving He is the only begotton Son of YAHUVEH…When Israel receives the fact YAHUSHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY that came to us in the flesh…Then true Peace will come to Jerusalem.

FASTING

We begin our Fast at sunrise the morning before Purim begins and it will not be broken until after we have approached the Throne of YAHUVEH. (This only applies if the day before Purim is not a Shabbat as fasting shouldn’t be done on the Sabbath. In those years, we fast instead on the Thursday before Purim. Then later celebrate Purim as usual.) We will approach the Throne of YAHUVEH at the beginning of Purim at sundown. You will know when to approach the Throne.

If you haven’t had time to even fast because you didn’t know, just realize YAHUVEH knows your heart, he knows your health, just do the best you can do. You are only held accountable for what you know.

After approaching the Throne of YAHUVEH, eat a special meal that is tasty and have dessert! It is a time to feast and laugh and celebrate, for we know we have the victory in the name of YAHUSHUA! When YAHUVEH is for us, who can defeat us? NO ONE! Just as surely as Esther and the Hebrews had the victory then, even more so do we have the victory through the shed blood of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH! Through the name of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH!

HOLY COMMUNION

Before we approach the Throne of YAHUVEH we will do Holy Communion to make ourselves ready. Anointing ourselves with fragrant anointing oil is another thing we shall do at this time. Wearing something white stands for the purity of Esther. These are personal instructions given to me, you won’t find the Orthodox Jews doing this or being taught this in Messianic Jewish Synagogues.

A white shirt and light colored slacks for men will do fine. It is just a symbol of being without spot or wrinkle as Esther was as she stood before the throne. A white robe if you have one would even be better for women or men. Just do the best you can to go before the throne in White…not a beige color shirt and not an off-white shirt.

INTERCEDE!

When you are kneeling before the Throne of YAHUVEH on Purim, you will know who and what to bring in prayer before the Throne of YAHUVEH!

PRAY TO BE COUNTED WORTHY!

We are to pray for the coming of YAHUSHUA this Rosh Hashanah, with the love and passion of someone that misses their Beloved. We are to pray that we will be counted worthy to be called YAHUSHUA’S Bride of Revelation 14. None of this should ever be take for granted. Never think that just because you are called, you will also be chosen. This is just like Esther. Remember, she was also was called…but feared she would not be chosen for she felt unworthy.

We are to pray that we are counted worthy to be called YAHUSHUA’S Bride, to be kept Holy and walk in a geater anointing each day…so that we can be taken up in the clouds alive, called YAHUSHUA’S first fruit. Let this be our petition before the throne of YAHUVEH. Everyone should be praying that they will be counted worthy to escape the wrath of YAHUVEH, and be empowered to live more Holy unto YAHUSHUA, having a greater anointing and boldness, and to clearly hear YAHUSHUA’S VOICE and instructions in all things.

For those I have personally shared secrets of the Bride with, you will understand how important the Communion Cup is, which also represents the Marriage Cup with YAHUSHUA. You will know what else to do. For those I have not shared the secrets with, reserved for the Bride only, pray and the RUACH ha KODESH (Holy Spirit) may say,”Now is the time for you to know.”

Mainly do as the RUACH ha KODESH leads you and really picture yourself before the Throne of the Ancient One Eternal Living Creator called YAHUVEH in the name of YAHUSHUA. That HE receives us as His Esther of New is our prayer! What a blessing that will be!

Pray at the throne of YAHUVEH in the name of YAHUSHUA that all our enemies as Esther of new will be YAHUVEH’S and YAHUSHUA’S enemies and dealt with immediately. Our enemies will be chased away in 7 different directions, and fear us as they recognize the GOD we serve does protect and defend us.

Pray that we shall be hidden, protected and sealed from all harm in all ways, given new anointings, new revelations, eyes to see the enemy’s traps from afar and the way around them, to cause the enemies to be entrapped by their own snares. Pray to be healed, blessed and prosperous as Abraham, Issac, and Jacob were blessed without lack of any good thing…for the Glory of YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA.

Those who have been chosen to be the Bride of YAHUSHUA will have the blessings reserved for them listed in Deuteronomy 28, as well as those of you who truly love and serve YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA with clean hearts and lives.

Pray that the enemies of the Bride of YAHUSHUA will be dealt with as Esther’s enemies were that sought her destruction. Only this will be the vengeance of YAHUVEH, the wine press of HIS wrath and our enemies will immediatly feel that wrath. I have enemies that say I am casting a whammy against them and they come under attack. Well, I’ve got news news for my enemies reading this: that’s not a whammy sent from me, that is called VENGEANCE IS MINE SAYETH YAHUVEH, I will repay! I only ask my Abba to do it to you so you will reap what you are sowing.

Just as surely as when YAHUSHUA cursed the fig tree for not bearing fruit and feeding him, just as surely Vengeance will come upon anyone that harms Spiritual Israel as well as Physical Israel. Pray for divine health and our Glorified Bodies, for the Bride of YAHUSHUA will not die but be caught up to meet our beloved YAHUSHUA in the air! Is there a greater Jubilee than this?

I pray all who are called my Sisters and Brothers in YAHUSHUA will have a blessed Purim. Please write me and let me know what your Spiritual experience was like. Approach the throne of YAHUVEH making sure you are cleansed with the shed blood of the Lamb and all sins either in word, thought, or deed are washed away in the shed blood of YAHUSHUA in the name of YAHUSHUA and you are determined to turn away from that sin. Expect a miracle and it will happen!

Contrary to how the Hebrew people celebrate Purim, this is not the time to wear a mask, this is not a Jewish Mardi gras! Woe unto those who take part in wearing masks. This is a time to prove our relationship with our Creator and Messiah and draw closer to them, not farther away.

From our house to your house, Kathrynyah, Adam, Ezra and I pray blessings on all who receive this Ministry as a blessing. We thank you for your love, encouragment, prayers, and financial support. What a blessing you have been to us! Now we pray that this will be your and our year of Jubilee in the face of enemies! Remember as we celebrate this Purim together, we will be together in the RUACH ha KODESH Spirit before the Throne of YAHUVEH in the name of YAHUSHUA. We will be one in the Holy Spirit!

Please write me and introduce yourself to me as you feel led by the RUACH ha KODESH. If anyone is hearing more to do on Purim, please quickly let me know.

In closing, our Prayer is this…

…in the name of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, Father YAHUVEH, may we be pleasing unto you as Esther was pleasing unto the King, may we have victory over our enemies in all ways, and be chosen to be called the Holy anointed beautiful Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH! Amen
