Purim is a story of passion, obedience, salvation, and redemption.
It might not be a holiday that you normally celebrate, but it holds great significance for Believers today.
The book of Esther takes us through her personal journey as she bravely heeded the prophetic words of Mordechai and saved the life of her people.
Esther’s older cousin, Mordechai, reminded her that if she did not take a stand God would send salvation from another place. Then he speaks some of the most well quoted words from this beloved story: “Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”—Esther 4:14
At My Olive Tree we too have accepted the challenge that part of our purpose is to help support Israel, her restoration, and her salvation.
We know that Jewish people were spared time and again, and we proudly take a stand beside them restoring the land and fulfilling the words of the prophets of Amos and Isaiah.
Like Esther, we feel that we exist for such a time as this.
Do you feel the same?
Are you here for such a time as this?
Sometimes it is difficult for us to do anything more than simply pray, but through the efforts of My Olive Tree and 19,000 faithful sponsors such as yourself, we are doing something positive in the land for Israel’s future.
We are following Esther’s brave example and taking a physical stand for God’s people.
Esther 9:22 talks about the importance of the days of Purim and how they are to be honored: “…as the days on which the Jews had rest from their enemies, as the month which was turned from sorrow to joy for them, and from mourning to a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and joy, of sending presents to one another and gifts to the poor.”
This is how this special feast is to be commemorated. You may ask, “How does this apply to me, as a Believer?”
As a Believer YOU have been grafted in. You are part of this rich inheritance. You are part of the “all who would join them…”
“…the Jews established and imposed it upon themselves and their descendants and all who would join them, that without fail they should celebrate these two days every year, according to the written instructions and according to the prescribed time, that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city, that these days of Purim should not fail to be observed among the Jews, and that the memory of them should not perish…”—Esther 9:27-28
Would you consider a special Purim sponsorship at this time? Would you join us by giving a gift to benefit those less fortunate?
We have never offered this before, but for a very limited time we are offering this unique opportunity to sponsor a grapevine in the Negev for $209 (a 20% discount!) and receiving a FREE bottle of Grape Juice, and Certificate of Authenticity, plus FREE S&H.
Will you partner with us to bless Israel? Will you Sow and Save? Let us decree together at this prescribed time: “Deliverance will come from MY words and MY seed. I am free! Israel is free! The Body of Christ is free! May all spirits of Haman be hanged on their gallows as we come into alignment with our God, His Kingdom, and our King, Yeshua!”
Happy Purim, friends!
