– God is Israel’s Protector
It is interesting that Purim is exactly one month before Passover. Just as Egypt was destroyed because it tried to destroy Israel, so Persia was destroyed because it tried to destroy Israel, too, hundreds of years later. God did not let Persia destroy Israel during the time of Esther and He will not allow Iran or any nation destroy Israel today or ever. Israel is precious to God and is the apple of His eye
The king’s order had to be carried out on the 13th day of the 12th month. That was the month of Adar. On that day the enemies of the Jews had hoped to win the battle over them. But now everything had changed. The Jews had gained the advantage over those who hated them. 2 The Jews gathered together in their cities. They gathered in all the territories King Xerxes ruled over. They came together to attack those who were trying to destroy them. No one could stand up against them. The people from all the other nations were afraid of them.
PROCLAIM GOD’S LOVE FOR AND PROTECTION OF ISRAEL.
