Arise Esther!!! The Spirit of Haman Must Be Stopped By Spirit of Esther!
This was the first prophetic word the Holy Spirit gave me to release publically to the Church. Because of things going on in the world between Israel, Iran and the USA, and the fact that Purim is being celebrated beginning at sunset on March 7, 2012, I am resubmitting it for your consideration. Please pray as the Lord would lead you. Thank you.
This is what the Lord said:
“Hear O Church! Arise and walk in the spirit of Esther! Beloved, you are to look at Queen Esther's example in her dealing with Haman to know how to deal with this treachery brewing in Iran. This wicked plot to destroy Israel has come up to your Father's nostrils as a stench! How foolish is this? This leader's pride is like Haman's in the book of Esther. He is of the spirit Haman. Does he not know that the God of Israel's chosen people are hidden everywhere - even within Iran's own top ranks? Your intercessions will bring this man's plotting to ruin! PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
“Go to this book, Church. Esther was a type and a shadow for you to follow. You are My lovely and chosen bride. You are the one who can turn My head with your beauty and your grace. Come and ask of Me now. Purify yourselves and come into My chambers. I will make known to you how to pray. This is a love story that I gave you for instruction!
“Haman thought he was so high and so great that all should bow down to him. When My servant, Mordecai, refused to bow to him it made him furious. Haman learned Mordecai was Jewish and so he sought to kill them all because of his hatred for Mordecai. He wanted to purge the world of My people because one man refused to bow to him. So he went to the king of Persia, King Ahasuerusand received the king's permission to write letters to the entire empire stating the Jewish people were to be utterly annihilated.His empire had 127 provinces and stretched from India to Ethiopia.
“When Mordecai learned of the plot to destroy the Jews, he tore his clothes and cried out in sackcloth and ashes. He got word to Esther that even she would not be able to escape this evil. Then he relayed the famous words, “Who can say but that God has brought you in for such a time as this." The Jews all fasted and prayed for Esther to be accepted into the king's inner court so that he would intervene on their behalf. After the third day Esther put on her royal robes and in her beautiful and gracious way came to present herself to the king. The king's response to her was one of delight. Hear MY CHURCH! The king was delighted in her! He loved her and was so taken by her beauty he not only offered her his golden scepter, but also up to half his kingdom!
“Esther, in My wisdom, didn't yet speak what was in her broken-heart. She only asked the king and Haman to a banquet that she had prepared. As they enjoyed themselves, the king inquired of her petition. Her only request was for him and Haman to return the second night and she would set another banquet before them. Haman had no clue what was awaiting him. He left that feast on top of the world.
“Then he saw Mordecai who refused to bow, and Haman's blood boiled within him. Haman was so filled with hatred that night he commissioned gallows 75 feet high to be built on which to hang Mordecai. However, the king's heart was stirred that very night and he was reminded of Mordecai's loyalty to inform the king of a plot against his life. The king sought to honor Mordecai and brought Haman in the next day to inquire what tribute should be paid to a loyal man who pleased the king. Haman smugly thought of himself - that it was he who would be honored - so he counseled the king. In every manner this man should be honored! He suggested a royal robe, a royal horse and a royal crown - all which had been used by the king! And the clincher was that one of the king's noble men was to escort him through the streets and shout before him saying, "This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!" All this Haman said fully expecting he was to be the recipient! Then the king announced that Haman was to do ALL he had recommended, but to bestow the honor to Mordecai the Jew! Haman obeyed and did as the king commanded, but afterward he hung his head in utter humiliation and rushed to return home to hide his shame.
“Just that quickly he was summoned for the second dinner with Queen Esther where the king asked for her petition. She beseeched King Ahasuerus to spare her people from utter slaughter and annihilation. When he demanded to know who was so reprehensible to do such a thing, the Queen told him it was Haman.
“Haman was hung and died that night on the very gallows he had built for Mordecai and his 10 sons later followed him to that end. Read what is recorded in the book of Esther and pay close attention to what has been emphasized:
- 8:2 So the king took off his signet ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it to Mordecai; and Esther appointed Mordecai over the house of Haman.
- 8:8 You yourselves write a decree concerning the Jews, as you please, in the king's name, andseal it with the king's signet ring; for whatever is written in the king's name and sealed with the king's signet ring no one can revoke.
- HEAR O CHURCH!!! The Lord your God is showing you something in this that needs to be applied to thisHaman of Persia. Look at this carefully:
- 8:7 Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew, "Indeed, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows because he tried to lay his hand on the Jews.
“Israel needs your prayers. Those who cry out for freedom in Persia - Iran - also need your prayers, as they are under the rule of this vile spirit. Make no mistake that this man's intention is to destroy all of Israel. That appetite for murder will not be satisfied by just destroying the one country (Mordecai). Haman's spirit is after the Jewish people wherever they may be. The decree will go out for all to be murdered wherever they may be because this spirit will not rest until it sees all Jews dead or itself is killed. Just as Mordecai warned Esther, so must My church take this warning:
- 8:13 "Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king's palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish.
“Make haste. Pray for the triumph of Esther and Mordecai to sweep through the Middle East. Write and declare My word over Israel. Pray for the peace of My city, Jerusalem! Write it and seal it with the signet ring that I give you. My third dayhas come and you may come boldly to the inner court to My Throne of Grace! The golden scepter is extended. So COME! You say to Me, "Lord, Come quickly!" But I say to you, "Esther, My Bride, My Church, COME QUICKLY!""
Scriptures To Consider:
- Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
- Matthew 5:43-45 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust."
- 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ
- 2 Chronicles 20:14 "Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem . Thus says the Lord to you: 'Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God's.
This decree is written this day February 11, 2006 Gregorian calendar; 13 Shevat 5766 on the Jewish calendar. This date is also known as the 27th anniversary of The Revolution of Iran. (It has been updated on October 14, 2010 Thursday, 6 Cheshvan, 5771.) I write not on my own authority but on the authority given to me by my Father and through the blood that was shed on the Cross at Calvary by His First-born, Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ. Through His resurrection and by His Holy Spirit, He has given me the directive to make plain this decree. My credentials are listed in the Lamb's Book of Life. I am His possession and have been marked with His seal. It is His signet ring which seals this decree. The Father I speak of is the God of all creation, the Maker of the heavens and the earth. This same God, whom I call Father, has called Israel His own.
Psalms 135:4 For the LORD has chosen Jacob to be his own, Israel to be His treasured possession.
God Himself named Israel.
As it is written in Genesis 35:9-12 After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God appeared to him again and blessed him. God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel." So He named him Israel. And God said to him, "I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will come from your body. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you."
The LORD will not forsake Israel.
1 Kings 6:13 "I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake My people Israel."
God does not take back His calling or His gifts.
Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
This decree is written by my hand without prejudice or malice to warn to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,who has openly called for Israel to be "wiped off the map," to repent for making this threat. May the global authorities which police these policies enforce them. By making this death threat against Israel and those who align themselves with her, he has placed himself in the same shoes of Haman as well as the 10 sons (nations). Repentance must be forthcoming. Haman suffered the death that he himself had devised for Mordecai. The very weapons devised against the Jewish nation of Israel will come back on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his own house if he does not turn away from his course of action. There is time for repentance and it is NOW. Comply with global authorities and repent to the Lord of hosts for launching threats against His treasured Israel - the Apple of His eye. You are in His hands. The Lord God is faithful and just to forgive all sin and to cleanse you of all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
Right now I launch prayers of peace over Jerusalem. I release a shield of faith over Israel. I pray for the strengthening of Michael - the great prince who stands watch over Israel - and all who are within his ranks. Israel, you who are great beloved by the Lord, see to it that your names are written in the Book of Life. Daniel 12:1
I pray for the redemption of the Persian people. Look up O People of Iran! Your Help draws near! I pray for those who are in captivity, especially the woman who have endured great torture at the hands of the wicked. I launch peace-seeking missiles into Iran! I pray for the Prince of Peace to reign in Iran. I sign this and take the signet ring given me and seal this decree now in the Mighty and powerful name above all names, Jesus.
Amen - so be it!
