"The Messiah's WARNINGS: For Purim?"

   The 3 Days of the Season of Purim highlight an unusual combination of fasting, drunkenness, and dissipation. What are the 3 days called? Day 1 is Ta anit Esther, with a partial fast from sunrise to sunset. This is not an Appointed Time, not a Feast of Elohim commanded in the Torah, it is a tradition of men. Day 2 is called Purim or Purim Lots, and Day 3 is called Shushan Purim Lots. According to The Torah Calendar (Creation Calendar), these will occur during Adar II (Month 13) from 3-16 to 18, 2022, just before the Spring Equinox this year. Why is there drunkenness and dissipation? A number of men in Rabbinical Judaism drink alcoholic beverages to excess during celebrations of Purim. And some combine drunkenness with dissipation (carousing). This is alcohol fueled, alcohol enabled, sexual immorality. Some Jewish men go to see mistresses or go as clients to businesses in red light districts during Purim. Not marriage or family values, there are causes for shame. These activities are hidden from their wives and children. Queen Esther’s Hebrew name Hadassah is derived from the Hebrew word hester. Meaning what? Hiddenness. Queen Esther (Hadassah) reveals herself to her husband the King of Persia, other Jews, and her country. The bravery and courage of Queen Esther (Hadassah) are unveiled. They come out of hiding, of hiddenness. HER TRUE SELF IS REVEALED. On The Day of The Blessed Hope, the Queen Bride of the Messiah is REVEALED!


Guess what? These 3 things: fasting, drunkenness, and dissipation (carousing) were mentioned by the Messiah! In the 3 Synoptic Gospels, the Messiah noted that when the groom is with you, you do not fast. When he is taken from you, then you will fast. However, when he returns, your joy will be full and no one will be able to take it from you. The fast is over. According to the Ancient Galilean Wedding Model, the groom and bride go quickly to the wedding canopy (the chuppah) in joyous procession with family and friends to share their great day. CELEBRATION begins. Purim is a time of Celebration and Joy. However, the Messiah gives WARNINGS about drunkenness and dissipation on The Day He returns. “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down, with dissipation and drunkenness and the cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on  the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, proving that you may be in position to escape all these things that are going to take place, and stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21: 34-36. One is to be like the wise and faithful steward ready at all times and escape the day of judgement. See Luke 12: 39-44. One is to be SOBER and WATCHING for the Master, The Beloved.


There is ONLY 1 DAY of the entire year when some members of the House of Israel live out fasting, drunkenness, and dissipation on a global time frame. The Day in 2022 will be 3-17-2022 for Israel on their Purim Day 2. Some from early afternoon onwards will be drunk and/or dissipated there, and Europe, and North and South America. What about fasting? Where? For those far back on the 24 hour grid it will be concluding the day fast for those in Asia, China, Russia, and Africa. It will be Purim Day 1, Ta anit Esther for them. For a few hours, as Israel approaches her sunset, there shall be the global composite, the combination of all 3 at once: fasting, and drunkenness, and dissipation (carousing). These 3 are NOT REPEATED on any Feast of Elohim or any other 2 days of the whole year for the House of Israel. This distinction is significant.


   Paul noted that some will see: discern or intuit the Season of The Blessed Hope approaching. Purim = Season of 3 Days. Think earlier this year than later, for The Blessed Hope. Consider THE UNEXPECTED. The Messiah, the Groom of grooms, promises to come at a time, an hour, for which many are clueless and totally unprepared. “Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Matthew 24: 24-44. “You must also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Luke 12:40. Perhaps the Messiah’s Bride of the Ages, the Queen of queens, will be No LONGER HIDDEN, IN HIDDENNESS, but soon Beautifully REVEALED! Perhaps in the midst of CELEBRATIONS and JOY during Purim 2022?



With Love and Shalom,
