Yesterday was the “Jewish” holiday of Purim — a day in which religious Jews dress up in costumes, become uproariously drunken, and play out their fantasies of superiority above all people.
The article at this link, by Michael Hoffman, author of the book, Judaism Discovered, goes into some interesting detail about the true (and sordid) meaning of Purim — a holiday justifying murderous “Jewish” ethnic cleansing and ongoing persecution against their perceived enemies.
The holiday of Purim is inspired in large part by the book of Esther, which is the only book in the Bible that’s completely fictitious. For those with eyes to see and ears to hear, the book of Esther represents, by way of analogy, the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” walking in the midst of the garden of God.
In other words, the garden of God is symbolic of His Word, and it contains the Tree of Life (i.e., Christ Jesus). God’s Word is the lush, green and fruitful “garden” that provides our spiritual sustenance. It contains the “fruit” we’re allowed to eat and the “leaves” we’re allowed to use for spiritual medicine/healing. Each book of the Bible is a “branch” of the Tree of Life. Each page of the Bible is a “leaf” on that tree. And each doctrine on those pages represents the spiritual “fruit” we’re to partake of.
But just as the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (i.e., the head of the family tree of Satan) walked within the very midst of the Garden of Eden in chapter 3 of the great book of Genesis, so within God’s Word itself — in the form of the fictitious book of Esther — we see that very same false one, in all of his deceptive capacity.
And just as he held out his hand to mother Eve and offered a deceptive and seductive story-line, so he’s still holding out his hand — to us — through the fictitious book of Esther, offering his false doctrine/forbidden fruit, which is to say, his seductive story-line.
And if you partake of that seductive story-line, which is to say, if you believe the story in that fictitious book of Esther, as mother Eve believed the fictitious story the serpent told her in the garden of Eden in Genesis chapter 3, you end up unwittingly aligned (or “coupled”) with your Father’s enemies, the Kenite false Jews of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9, just as Eve ended up coupled with Satan.
And in the process of being deceived by the seductive story-line in that fictitious book of Esther, you can end up bearing fruit for God’s enemies, just as Eve ended up unwittingly bore “fruit” for him in the form of Cain, the first Kenite.
In reality, the book of Esther was never part of the Bible. But God allowed the book of Esther to become part of the Bible (at the Council of Trent) specifically to show His elect — that’s you, beloved — how the enemy sneaks in subtly, clandestinely, and hides himself right within our midst under false identity, purveying poisonous spiritual doctrine to us as if it were part of the doctrine of God.
The spiritual doctrine taught in the book of Esther is, essentially, the “evil” in the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” Satan and his Kenite children continually offer to us that mixture of truth (i.e., the doctrines of God’s Word) with the big lie (i.e., the doctrines of that fictitious book of Esther). And that big lie is located right in the midst of the Word of God itself, just as Satan (in his role as the tree of the knowledge of good and evil) was located right in the midst of the Garden of Eden.
Our heavenly Father has allowed this fictitious and poisonous book to be within the very midst of His written Word, so we can “see” it and better understand Satan’s deceptive mode of operation.
It’s what I like to call a “Satan sandwich,” i.e., you have two nice big slices of white bread on the outside, but hidden within those two good and thoroughly edible slices of bread is a thin piece of rotten pork. If you don’t know enough to open the sandwich and remove the pork, you unwittingly end up eating that pork along with the good bread, just as Eve unwittingly ended up partaking of the poisonous doctrine of Satan himself, thinking she was partaking of God’s Word.
It’s important to note that the name “Esther,” which means “a star,” is derived from the Babylonian term Ishtar, meaning “hidden” or “hidden one.” And I’m sure you already know which people and nation on this earth today use a great big six-pointed star as their national symbol, and have Satan’s children hidden within.
What’s more, it’s equally important to note that the names “Esther” and “Ishtar” are the root words of the English word Easter, the non-Christian holiday that was cleverly snuck into Christianity to replace the Passover and thus negate Christ’s role as the Passover Lamb, substituting filthy pagan fertility symbols of rabbits and eggs in place of that sacrificial Lamb of God.
Check out Hoffman’s article on Purim at the link above. But more importantly, if you want to know more about the book of Esther and how the bloody holiday of Purim evolved from it through the Kenites during their time in Babylonian exile, be sure to get a copy of Pastor Arnold Murray’s taped study on the book of Esther, which is available in CD format from The Shepherd’s Chapel at 1-800-643-4645 (tape #30124). It’s eye-opening, indeed. And if you’re not already aware of all of this, you’ll never look at that book the same way, again.
