*El-Elohe Yisrael has delivered us from the Decree of Annihilation:

*God, the God of Israel

In the prophetic narrative of EstherHadassah (הֲדַסָּ֗ה – استير) the people of Israel are miraculously delivered from physical annihilation. This deliverance is a foreshadowing of the deliverance that began when the Anointed One, the Messiah, was conceived in Nazret (נצרת) of Galilee in the womb of the Jewess Miryam at the first of Chanukkah (6 BCE) and forty weeks later, in the village of His ancestor King David, was born in Beit-Lechem (בית לחם) at the first of Sukkot (5 BCE).

In this providential way the Messiah was both conceived and born during the forty week span of time that includes both of Israel’s Festivals of Light. Both of these festivals that symbolize the return of the eternal Light of HaShem’s Presence to dwell within (winter festival) and without the Temple (fall festival) in Jerusalem are testified to in the Megillah of Esther.

In His first visitation to earth our Messiah Yeshua ben Yosef ben David fulfilled all of the Torah prophecy that promised a sacrifice of redemption (Korsan Pesach) for Israel that would reconcile us to our Righteous Father who dwells in heaven, Avinu Shebashamayim. Moses and the prophets foretold that Ha-Mashiach HaPalat would at the first deliver us from sin (Messiah ben Yosef) and at the last would usher in the righteous reign of the Kingdom of God here on earth (Messiah ben David). It is through the Divine Redemption of the Messiah that the Decree of Life of Hashem (foretold in the Megillah of Esther) is able to come into being. Only through the atoning sacrifice and resurrection life of the Messiah, therefore, will the Decree of Death (also referenced in Esther) be neutralized and our enemies permanently defeated.

Through the physical line of father Abraham the Messiah has already come. Messiah ben Avraham is a blessing to Israel and to all the nations of the earth. It is through the sacrifice of Messiah ben Avraham that not only shall Israel be blessed but “all nations of the earth shall be blessed” (Genesis 18:18). For it is written:

וְנִבְרְכוּ בֹו כֹּל גֹּויֵי הָאָֽרֶץ׃

All nations of the earth shall be blessed in Him. 

Therefore, today we see hundreds of millions of people in all parts of the earth who have received the blessings of eternal salvation from sin and death through their exercising faith in the precious Seed of Abraham (Zera’ Avraham), the Suffering Messiah ben Yosef, who shall soon return to us (Israel) as the Conquering Messiah ben David.

Administration of the Grace of the Favor and Kindness of HaShem (the NAME):

There is an incredible amount of prophetic hidden meanings (sodim) in the little Scroll of Esther and all of these hidden truths bear witness to the Messiah. Four of these meanings are:

Prophecy #1.  The historical figures of Mordecai and Esther spiritually represent the Administration of the Spirit of Grace (Chesed).
Prophecy #2.  Mordecai represents the Administration of the Spirit of Grace that is given first to Israel; then to the world.
Prophecy #3.  Esther-Hadassah is a prophetic type of the future international Rule of God (Israel) that was promised to father Abraham.
Prophecy #4.  Esther (Gentile) and Hadassah (Hebrew) collectively represent the yet to be established international union of Israel and the Commonwealth of Israel.

*Father Abraham by his faith in HaShem is destined in the messianic age to be the “Father of a Multitude” of Nations. This yet future universal Rule of God will be established on earth by the gracious governance of HaShem through His Bride Israel (whose near future King will be the Messiah ben David).

The sovereign Grace of God will overrule Israel’s previous sin:

It is the Grace (Chesed) of HaShem that has preserved Israel in the past and it is the Grace (Loving-kindness) of HaShem that will continue to preserve Israel in the future. This is prophetically revealed in the double meaning of father Jacob’s assigned name (יַעֲקֹב-Ya’akov). First, his name means He HaShem will “preserve and protect” His children, the elect nation and people of Israel. Second, his name means that he Ya’akov will “supplant” the evil world system established by the wicked one and “replace” it with the permanent Rule of God  (lit. Yisra’el).

Therefore, due to our father Ya’akov being the Supplanter of the evil world system he is given the new name of the overcoming one, “Yisra’el” (the Rule of God). In spite of Israel’s previous rejection of the Messiah, HaShem Avinu (our Father) will remain faithful to us because He must fulfill all of His promises that He made to His “friend” Avraham. Again, this Divine favor must be extended to us (Israel) even though numerous previous generations of our ancestors have failed to live up to HaShem’s expectations. This sovereign persistence of HaShem Avinu to fulfill all of His promises to His friend Abraham will inevitably cause this present generation of Israel to believe in HaShem and to accept the Messiah our Redeemer who appeared once before to our ancestors and was rejected and who shall appear again to this generation—-this time to be accepted.

A New Generation of Israel will believe in the promises of God our Father:

One day the Messiah of all the earth, our Tzaddik (Righteous One), will miraculously return to earth from our Father’s throne in heaven and Israel’s unbelief will completely and permanently come to an end. Finally, a seventh generation (cf. seventh generation of Enoch) of Israel will finally emerge on the world scene that will believe on the name of Messiah, the “Salvation of HaShem” (Yeshua). This new generation of HaShem’s children by faith will leave the spiritual desert of our unbelieving ancestors, who have previously died in the spiritual wastelands of their unbelief.

It is in this new (contemporary) seventh generation (symbolic of completeness) that HaShem’s children of light will boldly exercise full-faith in M’shicho (מְשִׁיחוֹ-His Messiah) and enter into the Promised Land of the Messianic Age (the promised Golden Age of Israel). When the promised messianic kingdom is established by the faith of the children of the Rule of God (Israel) then we will claim all of the promises that the God of the Beginning (Elohei Kedem) made so long ago to our father Abraham. At that blessed near future time all of the enemies of Israel will be permanently overthrown and supplanted and the (thousand years) Gan Eden millennial reign of Messiah ben David will begin (and never end).
