Purim: Casting the
“Because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had devised against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast Pur, that is the lot, to consume them, and to destroy them. But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows. Wherefore they called these days Purim after the name of Pur. The Jews ordained … that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed” – (Esther 9:24-28).
And the Jews to this day commemorate it with
the feast of Purim each year before the feast of Passover in every land of the
Gentiles and in
Yet this book of Esther makes clear that God
was working in mysterious ways on behalf of the Jews, but working behind the
scenes. In this present day, the same fact is true.
the Feast of Purim and the book of Esther, God was showing the Jews and
Christians that we need to watch closely the ‘casting of the ballots’ during
elections in the Gentile nations of the world. And especially are we to watch
the ‘casting of the lots’ in these end times because
Antichrist is soon to come, of whom Haman is a type. Especially must we watch
closely ‘the casting of bal-lots’ for president of the
Hitler was not ‘the’ Antichrist-Beast, even
though he was ‘an,’ antichrist and a beast of a man. And many more Jews could
have escaped from Hitler if they had been watching closely ‘the casting of

See the last word in (Est.3:13) “prey”; this shows us what a beast Haman was as he was about to make millions of Jews his “prey” like a wild beast exactly as the Antichrist-Beast will do – (Dan.7). No wonder God describes the character of the Beast like a leopard, lion and a bear – (Rev.13:2). Antichrist will be a human two-legged Beast and a million times worse than any four-legged beast. He will be a man-killing Beast of the worst kind, worse than the world has ever seen. Are you watching the ‘Pur’ of the 2008 elections with your Bible in your hands? The ‘casting of the bal-lot’ is crucial in 2008.
It is written in (Prov.16:33) – “The lot is cast into the lap: but the
whole disposing thereof is of the
Lord.” We should write this verse over the book of Esther. In his pride,
Prime Minister Haman cast lots to destroy the Jews, but God intervened and
delivered the Jews in His mercy. Many thousands of Jews were killed when

God orders and directs those things which to us are only chance. Nothing comes to pass by chance, nor an event determined by blind fortune, but everything by the will and counsel of God. God gives a perfect lot, not man. In this next crucial election, I’m satisfied that God’s hand His infinite wisdom will dispose of it perfectly.
When Jonah was trying to run away from the
Lord and he took a ship and the Lord sent a great storm, and the captain wanted
to know who caused this evil to befall them, they said – “Come, and let us cast lots,
that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah” – (1:7). The lot
was cast, but the whole disposing thereof was of the Lord. Jonah was God’s
prophet to preach repentance to

Jesus Christ was God’s perfect atonement for sin. God gave us a perfect lot. God gave us a way of escape like the escapegoat if we get saved by Christ. We receive eternal life instead of eternal death. And they cast lots for Christ’s garment by the soldiers beneath the cross – “They parted my garments among them, and for my vesture did they cast lots” – (Jn.19:24). God gave us a perfect lot according to His will. He gave us His dear Son, a perfect, supreme, sinless sacrifice for sin and gave us a way of escape from hell. “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation” – (Heb.2:3).

Good Friday, which symbolizes the day Christ
died on the cross is on March 21st this
year and Easter is on March 23rd, and March 20th is the
Feast of Purim, the day before Good Friday. God is plainly showing us the ‘casting
of the lots’ on Purim and the ‘casting of lots’ at the cross of Christ. Receive
Christ as Savior so you can escape like ‘
Jesus Christ is God’s elect – a divine election. And we who are saved are elected by God through Christ – “Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father…” – (I Pet.1:2). God has cast His lot upon His Son as His elect. Antichrist is Satan’s elect even as Christ is God’s elect but Antichrist is elected by the people of the U.S., chosen by ‘casting the bal-lot’ by popular election; whereas Christ’s election is by Divine election chosen by God the Father. Antichrist is elected by Satan to rule the world for a few measly years, but Christ will defeat him at Armageddon and rule over planet earth forever and ever – (Rev.11:15). The elections of this world are nothing, but God’s elections are everything. The saints are elected to rule the world with Christ.
Are you saved and born again? Have you repented of your sins and believed on Christ in your heart by faith and received forgiveness of sins and a new heart and a new Spirit? “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:6,7). O do not spurn the love and mercy and grace of God in His beloved Son on the cross, for there is no other way of escape from hell. “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth on him” – (Jn.3:36). Cast your lot for Christ to be your Savior and your coming King.
The King is coming soon.
Praise God He’s coming for me.
