Netanyahu Gives Obama Esther Scroll

When Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel visited the White House on March 5, 2012, he gave Obama a decorated 'Esther' Scroll. How fitting for the time, but I doubt Obama understands the message.

As those of us familiar with the story of Esther in the Old Testament, it tells of a Persian (Iran) king named Ahasuerus and an evil Persian president, Haman, and their scheme to annihilate the Jewish people on a particular date.

Interesting, Prime Minister Netanyahu told Obama, "Then too, they wanted to wipe us out," Netanyahu told Obama, according to an Israeli official.

Because of prayer and fasting during this time, God supernaturally intervened, and saved the Jewish people, and the evil Haman's scheme backfired on him.

All over the world today, March 8, 2012, Jews will be fasting and praying, in rememberance of the days of Queen Esther, a Jewish Holiday known as Purim, with the hope of God's intervention of averting a massacre against the Jewish people again. Let us join our Jewish brethren and friends and pray and fast with them.

  1. NO, I don't think Obama got the 'message' either, but what else is new with him. I wish there was program where Christians could visit the Holy Land, like the 'Birthright' one for Jews. I'd LOVE to visit before the Lord comes back (maybe Obama needs to go there as well, to get a real epiphany about the 'Real Jesus Christ' of the Bible.).
    Thanks for posting, I'd also LOVE to get in on the Jewish feasts myself soon.
