Are You Preparing For Purim?

created esther plans purim Mar 19, 2019

Calling ALL Modern-Day Esthers, Have you taken time to review the book of Esther? Purim is coming up this month. This book in the bible is a must read and we encourage ALL Esthers to schedule time this month to review Esther. Here is the book of Esther in a nutshell!

Overview: The Persian Empire of the 4th century BCE was extremely large and all Jewish people were occupations of this region. The ruler was King Ahasuerus. He had his Queen, Vashti, executed for disobeying his instructions. After, he arranged a national beauty pageant to find a new queen. A very young Jewish girl named Esther was chosen to be his new Queen. The young Queen had not disclosed her heritage with anyone.

In the intervening time, Haman (a member of the royal court) was appointed prime minister of the empire. Mordecai, the leader of the Jews (and Esther’s cousin), defied the king’s orders and refused to bow to Haman. Haman was enraged by this display of disrespect. As a result, he...

When Is It Time To Celebrate Purim?

created esther plans purim Mar 12, 2019

Calling ALL Modern-Day Esthers, We have taken the month of March to learn more regarding the Festival of Purim. We are getting close to celebrating this date! Let's learn more of the customs and when to celebrate! 

What Are Purim Customs?

1. Within the Jewish calendar, the fun of Purim is incomparable to any other date! This is a day to celebrate Jewish heritage, silliness, and enjoying life!

2. It is also customary for children and sometimes adults to dress up in costumes. The Jewish People wear masks or costumes as a symbol of the hidden meaning in the story of Esther. It is really behind the scenes God called Esther "For Such A Time As This" to save His people.  

3. A traditional Purim food is "hamantaschen". These are three-cornered sweet pastries smoothed with poppy seeds. 

4. On the day before Purim, it is customary to fast. This is commemorating Esther’s fasting. Queen Esther fasted with the Jewish people for three days...

What motivates Christian Zionists? By Shelley Neese

What motivates Christian Zionists? 

By Shelley Neese 

I am a Christian. And I am a Zionist. But it took me years of being both to realize that I’m a Christian Zionist. Though I consider myself a strong Christian and a committed lover of Israel, out of college I was leery of calling myself a Christian Zionist. My definition of a Christian Zionist was unclear and muddled by stereotypes I had absorbed over time. 

Where I got those stereotypes is no mystery. Any time you hear interviews with prominent Christian Zionist leaders, certain questions are guaranteed to come up: 

“Gary Bauer from American Values, tell us why evangelicals are so eager for the apocalypse?” 

“Susan Michael from International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, is church support for Israel merely a tool to convert the Jews?” 

“Earl Cox from Israel Always, do Christian Zionists only support Israel to realize the scenario of Armageddon?”

The Dead Sea Scrolls Monument By Shelley Neese

The Dead Sea Scrolls Monument  
By Shelley Neese 
 

In 1946 or 1947—no one knows for certain—a Bedouin goatherd nicknamed Muhammad the Wolf led his flock around the cliffs lining the northwest edge of the Dead Sea. As the livestock grazed on sparse vegetation, Muhammad wandered around the boulders. According to one of several variants of the account, he hurled a stone into a cave to startle a stray goat and heard pottery shatter. Too frightened to lower himself into the cave alone, he returned several days later with at least two relatives from his Ta’amireh tribe. Though they fantasized about finding gold and silver, instead they stumbled upon a cache of oddly shaped clay vessels with bowl shaped lids. Inside one jar, they discovered three ancient leather scrolls, intact and wrapped in linen. 

The Bedouin carted their scrolls back to their camp. The tribesmen stored the bundle in a goat skin bag and hung it from a tent pole....
