Here is a wee book in the Bible; in the sequence of, Esther, Job, Psalms, which is the easiest way to find this book. Now in Jewish Eyes, this is not only a “Historic Book,” but it is also viewed as a “Prophetic Book” in that what transpired upon God’s People back in ages past, is going to be repeated at the end of the ages, when once more, wickedness plans to destroy God’s People, but then a saviour, like Esther, is used to bring victory and salvation.
In Jewish Circles, this book is to be read in its entirety in a single session for “Church,” but with a difference, because when the dreaded “Haman’s” name is read out, the congregation stamp feet loudly, yell, whistle and make noise so his name is never heard. A sort of micro riot in Church for the instance his name is read out, but never heard.
In Summary, King Ahasuerus has a wee short party, 180 days long. Now this was such a great time, he instantly has another Party for 7 days for those who live in the Palace. He then decides to “Show Off” his greatness by displaying his stunningly beautiful wife, probably to rub it in a bit, to all the other men present, that she is the most amazingly beautiful lady in the vast realm. Well she is not into being ogled at, and to be paraded about in-front of drunken revellers, so she stays in her Palace at her party with all the women of the Royal House.
This gets the queen deposed; then there is a “Beauty Contest” and the winner gets to be Queen, so Esther gets to join the competition, and four years after Vashti, Esther is the instant, unanimous winner, and Queen. Now Mr Haman, who is an Agagite, remember King Agag who was King of the Amalekites, well he is an enemy of the Jews, well he gets promoted to head of all things and one step lower than King.
Now Mr Haman decides to even the score and to destroy all of God’s People from off the earth in a single day, a clean sweep, so he gets the Royal Ring, writes the “Unchangeable Law” and the job is done, he just needs to wait the few months and then his plan swings into action, and no more Jews. To solve another galling problem, he makes a huge Gallows for a certain Jew named Mordecai, and when seeking permission of the King to Hang him (That is where the game “Hang Man” came from) he discovers that his plan did not account for there being a Jewish Queen, the most Beautiful in all the world and the most adored by the King; but his plan has deemed her to be destroyed.
He is now finding that fighting God is a very dangerous thing, he pleads for his life of the Queen, by throwing himself upon her for mercy, which is read as an assault, his head is covered, and his Gallows, which he wanted to use to destroy a Jew, now was the instrument of his own destruction. Queen Esther inherited all of Haman’s property, Mordecai inherited Haman’s Job, and the people were so pleased with such an upright and fair ruler.
A new Law was passed, as you cannot rescind the old one, which gave the Jews victory and because Mordecai was such a Godly Man, the “fear of the Jews” was upon all the Nation, and the few that tried to run under the old law, came under the new variation, and were instead destroyed.
So what is this “Future Event?” The “Realm” is depicted as “The Whole World,” so it is depicted as “Inclusive” and not “Exclusive.” A law is to be enacted that means that the “Realm” is to be cleared of all God’s People, and in a single day, all destroyed, and evil can then have total dominion and control. We will have somebody who will represent Haman, Esther and Mordecai in our day. Mordecai is most obviously “Jesus Christ” who is the “Saviour of his People.”
Mr Haman is well depicted in most writings, and the “Left Behind” series, calls him, “Nicolae Jetty Carpathia,” but other authors have different names for the same function. The Bible has a few variations like, The Anti-Christ (he who sits in the place of Christ, or the “Substitute Christ”) or “The Abomination of Desolation,” who like Mr Haman wanted to desolate the Nation by the removal of God’s People.
The Holy Spirit moves right on time, and the plot is thwarted at the last moment, Jesus Christ comes in the clouds with all the Holy Angels, and the plans of evil men fail. In Daniel chapter 2, King Nebuchadnezzar is given from God a view of all the Nations that will ever rule planet Earth; Babylon, Medo-Persia, Grecia and finally Rome. As we live under the Last World Power, this is the Nation in Esther-prophetic; as Spiritual Babylonian now rules; Babylonian Legislation and Religion still operated in Medo-Persia, and has continued down to us, so we are now essentially, still Babylonian.
Revelation 16:13-14 “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” The Dragon is Satan (Rev 12:9), the Beast is Rome (the last World Power, also called Babylon), and the False Prophet is the USA (Lots of evidence for this.)
So the USA (Mr Haman,) with Roman approval, pass laws, to in one day, annihilate all God’s People (True Christians) and even promises to do the job. Revelation 13:16 “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:” This means “Serve Rome” or extermination.
God steps in for his People, they are redeemed from under the curse of a “Death Decree” and Exodus to the Heavenly Promised Land. The Wicked instead perish, God wins. Time to choose sides; Joshua 24:15b “but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
