THE LOVE FEAST OF PURIM

The Biblical Feast of Purim begins sundown on Thursday, February 25, 2021 and goes for two days. On the Hebrew Calendar, Purim is celebrated on the 14th day of Adar, which is the day that God’s people arose victorious against the loathsome Haman. However, due to the fighting lasting for two days, Shushan Purim is celebrated on the 15th of Adar.

Traditionally, Hebrews have celebrated Purim by remembering the miracles of Purim through four blessings:

[1] God’s people honor the appointed time of Purim as directed in the Scriptures: “Therefore, they called these days ‘Purim’ from the word ‘pur.’ Therefore, because of all that was written in this letter, and because of what they had seen concerning this, and what has happened to them, the Jews confirmed and undertook upon themselves, and their posterity, and upon all who might join them, without fail, to observe these two days, in their prescribed manner, and in their proper time each year.  And these days should be remembered and celebrated every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and these days of Purim should never cease among the Jews, nor shall their remembrance perish from their descendants” (Esther 9:26-28 Tanach).

[2] God’s people performing acts of kindness: “As the days on which the Jews gained relief from their enemies, and the month that had been turned about for them from one of sorrow to gladness, and sending delicacies to one another, and gifts to the poor” (Esther 9:22 Tanach).

[3] God’s people hear the reading of the entire Book of Esther (Megillah of Esther).

[4] God’s people enjoying a special Purim meal together.

We are told in the Midrash Esther – the commentary about the Book of Esther – that Purim will even be celebrated after the final redemption after the End of Days, because God’s incredible and faithful deliverance of His people will be magnified in the cataclysmic events that leads to the establishment of the Messiah’s Kingdom. In fact, the Second Coming of Messiah Yeshua will be regarded as the final Purim. The Hebrew Sage Maimonides says that the Book of Esther with enjoy the same status as the fives book of the Torah (Books of Moses) in the world to come (Mishneh Torah, Megillah).

We will soon go into how Purim is not only a Biblical Feast, but also a Bridal Feast, as gloriously demonstrated by Queen Esther herself. This is the primary reason why I call Purim a Love Feast.

For now, let us focus on how God’s love and purposes joined forces with faithful Queen Esther and those with her to overrule the forces of evil trying to annihilate them. God’s great and sovereign love is all of our hope in these dark end of days. Always remember that Scripture repeatedly articulates that those whose trust in God will be saved. The Sweet Singer of Israel – King David – especially embodied this reality:

“Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him” (Psalms 2:12 NKJV).

“But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You” (Psalms 5:11 NKJV).


“O LORD my God, in You I put my trust; save me from all those who persecute me; and deliver me” (Psalms 7:1b NKJV).

“And those who know Your Name will put their trust in You; for You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You” (Psalms 9:10 NKJV).

“Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust” (Psalms 16:1b NKJV).

“Show Your marvelous loving kindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You from those who rise up against them” (Psalms 17:7 NKJV).

“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies. … As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him” (Psalms 18:2-3,30 NKJV).

You get the idea. And that is just the first eighteen chapters of the Book of Psalms. The lives of Queen Esther and King David hold many keys for us in this hour of great need. Study them and press into the Most High God that saves those who trust in Him.

Give em heaven!!!
