Watch The Feast of Purim 2012

We have been watching the earthquake window looking for a big earthquake sometime in the late February-March timeframe. I thought there were no feast days during this time but I was wrong, there is the feast of purim.

I want to keep this short so here are the points I want to make:

1. Major earthquake window focusing our attention over this time period (late Feb-March)

2. Feast of Purim: how is it significant based on what we see in the world right now?


-Wars and rumors of wars focused on which state actors? Israel and Iran (ancient Persia)
Who were the actors in the feast of purim saga? Israel and Iran.

What was the feast about? The festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month ofAdar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia

What do we know about the coming Ezekiel 38 war? The Lord will defend Israel against her enemies leading them to repentance and renewed focus on Him resulting in .....SALVATION

What else happened during purim?
Mordechai galvanized all the Jews, convincing them to repent, fast and pray to God. Meanwhile, Esther asked the king and Haman to join her for a feast. At the feast, Esther revealed to the king her Jewish identity. Haman was hanged, Mordechai was appointed prime minister in his stead, and a new decree was issued—granting the Jews the right to defend themselves against their enemies.

Can you see the Nexus between the theme, the actors, the tie in to current events, where we stand at this point in history, and how this could play itself out in the very near future?

This time which includes today through the end of March 2012 is absolutely jam packed with potential for the world to turn upside down on its inhabitants in every way imaginable. Does this have potential rapture implications? Yes. Does this have potential tribulation implications? Yes. Am I predicting anything? No. I am watching, not predicting. I just laid out for you what I see from my point of view on the wall.

We have seen many times in the past come and go uneventfully, this could be another one of those meaning we must exercise some caution and detachment from the events around us. We have been called to faith and patience. Eventually, one day the Lord will come back which is why we continue to watch. Could the near future hold such a day? Its possible. It is never probable (on any given day), but it is always possible.

Events in my own life lead me to believe we are close, but still we must be cautious and patient. It would be wise for us to heed what we see on the wall and prepare ourselves right now today to meet our Lord Jesus Christ. I have never seen more signs that He will return soon.

Keep the faith, be ready for His return. Be patient if we must wait.

p.s.- I know the feast of purim is not one of the levitical feast days-it doesn't matter. What matters is what the Lord did for Israel....

grace and peace
