שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם



Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s

Today is February 16, 2019 - in the 21 Century


February -- month of Februa

Middle English Februarius
Latin Februarius "of Februa"
Latin Februa(s) "Februa" + -arius "ary (pertaining to)"
Latin Februarius mensis "month of Februa"
Latin dies februatus "day of purification"

Februarius had 28 days, until circa 450 BC when it had 23 or 24 days on some of every second year, until Julius when it had 29 days on every fourth year and 28 days otherwise. Februa is the Roman festival of purification, held on February fifteenth. It is possibly of Sabine origin. The Sabines – look it up if interested  


Yehovah has His own calendar, we are now in the twelfth month called Adar, 10th day. We have a leap year this year.


אֲדָר  Adar - to become glorious, make honorable; a cloak, mantle, “hidden

Adar אֲדָר

א  first letter in the Hebrew alphabet and is " hidden or silent "

דָר  means to dwell, live


Ezra.6 [15] And this house was finished on the third day of the month Adar, which was in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king.

[17] And offered at the dedication of this houseThe Temple - the second important Chanukah in scripture

Sounds right:

John.10 [22] And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. Adar


The word Adar is only found in the book Esther as a month

Esth.3 [7]…the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar

[13] … the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey.

Esth.8 [12]…the twelfth month, which is the month Adar

Purim is coming, the 14, 15 of Adar – February 20, 21 - Wednesday, Thursday - Winter

These days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed. We will remember!


Last week, we found out music, singing were big in the scriptures

We were told to: Pss.33 [3] Sing unto God, him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

Chenaniah the master of the song - Chenaniah, chief of the Levites, was for song: he instructed about the song, because he was skilful.


2 Chr.20 [19] And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise Yehovah God of Israel with a loud voice on high.

[20] And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in Yehovah your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

[21] And when he, Jehoshaphat had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto Yehovah, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise Yah; for his mercy endureth for ever.

The Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps

the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, were appointed to sound with cymbals of brass… and on and on…


Today’s Topic:

The Book of Esther אֶסְתֵּר  / Hadassah  הֲדַסָּה


Purim, a short review


A “feast” of the real Jews


מִשְׁתֶּה  mishteh  mish-teh' - drink; by implication drinking (the act); also (by implication), a banquet or (generally) feast: - banquet…




Pur or Purim = "lots" - a feast among the Jews, to celebrate their deliverance from Haman's destruction through Queen Esther and Mordecai heroic actions which God directed.

Adar - a primitive root; to expand, that is, be great or (figuratively) magnificent: - (become) glorious, honorable. (A mantle, cloak)


Hadassah, that is, Esther --    הֲדַסָּה, הִיא אֶסְתֵּר


In Hebrew the word Esther means "star" but the root of the word Esther is satar and means "hidden".


The words God, Lord are "hidden" in this book of Esther


Death, Resurrection, Deliverance and Salvation


Here are my thoughts for you to consider:


The thirteenth day of the first month (in the evening - just before Passover,

Nisan / ha Aviv 14)

Esth.3:[12] Then were the king's scribes called on the thirteenth day of the first month, and there was written according to all that Haman had commanded unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors that were over every province, and to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language; in the name of king Ahasuerus was it written, and sealed with the king's ring.


Esth.4:[16] Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days , night or day:


Sounds like Jonah's prophecy of Messiah


Jonah 1 [17] Now Yehovah had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah

And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.


Matt. 12 [40] For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.


Back to Esther

Esth. 5: [1] 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.

Sounds like Messiah's resurrection on the third day (the 3rd day is approx. 15 times in scripture)


1Cor. 15 [4] And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:


This could be the 16th of ha Aviv/Nisan


Esth. 5: [8 ] If I have found favour in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition, and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I shall prepare for them, and I will do tomorrow as the king hath said.

do tomorrow from the 16th” This would be the 17th of ha Aviv / Nisan


Read below:


Esth. 7: [1 ] So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen.

[2] And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, queen Esther? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? and it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom.

[3] Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request:

[4] For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage.

[5] 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?

[6 ] And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.

[7] 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.

[8 ] 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 the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.

[9] And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.

[10] So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.


People of God Delivered! Yeshua / Jesus rose on the third day, the 17th of ha Aviv / Nisan, first-fruits - Messiah delivered us and He is our savior for evermore!


Always remind each other about the ways of God


Lest we forget about the God of Israel!



The God of Israel is hidden

The God of Israel's land is given away

The God of Israel's true people are hidden

The God of Israel's true Messiah, the Word of God are hidden

The God of Israel's justice and judgments are hidden

The God of Israel's torah / laws, commandments are hidden

The God of Israel's feasts are hidden

The God of Israel's Sabbath is hidden

The God of Israel's food laws are hidden

The God of Israel's calendar is hidden


** In most bibles, from the Hebrew TaNak, in English the word Yah / Jah is only one time in Psalm 68:4 (over 50 times missing)


The word Yehovah is only 7 times.  (over 6500 times missing)

All the other many times the Hebrew words Yah and Yehovah are replaced by either the words LORD or GOD.


** In most bibles, “Yah and Yehovah” are missing in both the Greek and English, in all the Gospels and Letters.

and so much more…


 A verse comes to mind:

Jer.23 [27] Which think to cause my people to forget My name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten My name for Baal.



And always be aware of the invisible God

A few verses:

Col.1 [13] The Father hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son, His Word Yeshua:

[14] In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

[15] Yeshua is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

[16] For by Him, Yeshua, the Word were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, Yeshua, the Word, and for Yeshua, the Word:

[17] And Yeshua, the Word is before all things, and by Him Yeshua, the Word all things consist.

[18] And He, Yeshua, the Word is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He Yeshua, the Word might have the preeminence.

[19] For it pleased the Father that in Him, Yeshua, the Word should all fulness dwell;

[20] And, having made peace through the blood of His, Yeshua, the Word’s cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, Yeshua, the Word I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.


Heb.11 [27] By faith Moses forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing Him, God who is invisible.

Job says: 9 [11] Lo, He, God goeth by me, and I see Him, not: He, God passeth on also, but I perceive Him not.

John 1 [1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

[2] The same was in the beginning with God.

[3] All things were made by Him, the Word; and without Him, the Word was not any thing made that was made.

[4] In Him, the Word was life; and the life was the light of men.

[5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

[10] He, the Word was in the world, and the world was made by Him, the Word, and the world knew Him not.

[14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


Paul tells Timothy:

1Tim.3[16] And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.


We always have to know our enemies

I detect a evil root, a evil seed and a evil trail from Haman back through time to Agag the king of the Amalekites , Amalek and Esau to Satan

Esther 9: [10] The ten sons of Haman the son of Hammedatha, the enemy of the Jews, slew they; but on the spoil laid they not their hand.


Let’s look up Hammedatha the Agagite - The father of Haman


Agagite - descendant of Agag - the king of the Amalekites, king of Amalek

Amalek traced back to Esau – root Satan


Now Judaism's tales

From many Judaism websites

What do you think of this below?

We are also commanded to eat, drink and be merry. According to the Talmud, a person is required to drink until he cannot tell the difference between "cursed be Haman" and "blessed be Mordecai," though opinions differ as to exactly how drunk that is. A person certainly should not become so drunk that he might violate other commandments or get seriously ill. In addition, recovering alcoholics or others who might suffer serious harm from alcohol are exempt from this obligation.

In addition, we are commanded to send out gifts of food or drink, and to make gifts to charity. The sending of gifts of food and drink is referred to as shalach manos (lit. sending out portions).

Among Ashkenazic Jews, a common treat at this time of year is hamentaschen (lit. Haman's pockets). These triangular fruit-filled cookies are supposed to represent Haman's three-cornered hat.

It is customary to hold carnival-like celebrations on Purim, to perform plays and parodies, and to hold beauty contests. I have heard that the usual prohibitions against cross-dressing are lifted during this holiday, but I am not certain about that.

Americans sometimes refer to Purim as the Jewish Mardi Gras.

Purim is not subject to the Sabbath-like restrictions on word that some other holidays are; however, some sources indicate that we should not go about our ordinary business on Purim out of respect for the holiday.

Talmud - Megiilah 7b Raba said: It is the duty of a man to mellow himself [with wine] on Purim until he cannot tell the difference between cursed be Haman? and blessed be Mordecai?

There are fancy dress parties (including a tradition of cross-dressing) and mockery of those who at other times are much respected

Torah says: Deut.22 [5] The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto Yehovah thy God.


In closing:

1Tim.1 [17] Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Don’t be tricked:

Remember, the name of Yeshua the Messiah of Nazareth

Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel,(and everyone today 2017) that by the name of Yeshua the Messiah of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole.

This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name (except the name of Yeshua the Messiah of Nazareth) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved!

Yeshua, the Word, the Son is your only hope of salvation

 Shabbat Shalom
