Jews for Jesus


Unlike Passover or Yom Kippur, Purim is not one of the holidays we are commanded to observe in the Torah—but we hardly need to be commanded to celebrate this festive reminder of God’s watch-care over the people of Israel! For some, Purim is a day for practical jokes and noisy, uninhibited fun. For others, it’s all about the hamantaschen. These delicious, jam-filled, three-cornered pastries not only remind us of how our nemesis, Haman, received his just "desserts," but they just taste so good. And isn’t it refreshing to have a holiday with a woman hero? What Jewish girl wouldn’t like to be as brave and as beautiful as Queen Esther?

Yet we feel there is more to the holiday than the fun and pageantry we’ve all come to expect on Purim. The theme of deliverance is obvious, but have you stopped to think about how God used not-so-obvious people and situations over and over, throughout the Book of Esther? God does not always bring about deliverance according to our plans or expectations. The book of Esther is proof of that... and we Jews for Jesus invite you to consider a Messianic perspective, which is: God has a personal plan of deliverance for you that may also come from an unexpected source.

Love the Kosher Joe videos. :-)

In the year 2001, Purim fell on my birthday. This year, I have a dental appointment on March 5. That's so disheartening.

God bless Jews for Jesus. Hope y'all have a wonderful, fun and meaningful Purim.

I'm a person that prays for the Jews. I realize that they are God chosen people an they are a people that have gone threw many things and many wars through out history. Me being a Christian and knowing about the Bible. I have read the wonderful Old Testament that have blessed me to know how God has blessed no only Jews but Christians that have believe in Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God. I'm excited to know that I have been ingrafted in the promises of God, by the blood of Jesus Christ

"Then sings my soul, my savior God to thee,'How Great Thou Art, How Great Thou Art, Then Sings My Soul, My Savior God To Thee, How Great Thou Art, How Great, Thou Art !" My natural reaction to the story of the book of Esther and the feast, Purin arising from it. God, today as then! He was anonymous yet very active in His redemtive moves. We certainly cannot put God in a box nor limit His readiness, ability and willingness to deliver and save. may He be praised in our hearts and songs today and always.

The secret nuclear deal Obama made with Iran is a gallows he built for Netanyahu and Israel. YHWH Elohim will turn it around with Netanyahu speaking to the U.S. Congress and Obama will be hung on his own gallows for making this secret deal with Iran.
