For Such a Time as This

Esther 4:

[14] “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?”

The Erve of Purim is Saturday sundown March 15, 2014. We all know the story of Esther the orphan who was placed by force into the Kings Palace to be used of God to save her people. Not unlike Joseph who was placed by force into the Kings Palace to save his people.

However we the redeemed have been placed by our choice in the Kings Palace to be heirs of His Kingdom, ambassadors of His love. Our choice was to look upon the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world and say yes Lord we honor the sacrifice of your Son who paid the penalty for our sins. We have exchanged our life for His and now we like Joseph and Esther have another choice. A choice to say yes to the Lord as He calls us to be laborers in the greatest harvest of souls the world has ever known.

You were born for “such a time as this” and placed exactly where God chose for you to live. Your field of harvest is the boundary you find yourself in right now.

Acts 17: [26] and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,

You were given the DNA to full fill the destiny God created you for. In the natural your DNA gives you the ability to full fill your earthly assignments. In the spirit your Divine Nature Authority gives you the ability to take down strong holds and everything that exalts itself above the knowledge of God. (2Cor.10:4,5)

Psalm 139 [13] For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. [14] I will give thanks to You, for *I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. [15] My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; [16] Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. [17] How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! The spirit of Haman is advancing in our day. Worldwide anti-Semitism is reaching the levels equal to or greater than the days before the Holocaust. Just like Joseph and Esther we were created to be born in this time to bring freedom from bondage and provision for the Jewish people.

Esther stood before the King to make request for her people. God has called us to stand before Him and give Him no rest until He makes Jerusalem a praise on all the earth.

Isa62:[6] On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; All day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves; [7] And give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

When will Jerusalem be a praise? When Yeshua takes His place on the throne of David.
When will that happen? When the Jewish people cry “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.(Matt.23:39)

When will they know Him and call Him blessed?

Romans 10[14] How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? [15] How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!”

This is the hour for Jewish eyes to be open. We need to take our place on the wall of intercession and we need to share the gospel in our harvest field to the Jew first and to the nations.

Romans 1: [16] For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

Unfortunately many in the body have missed the heart of God in the matter. They quote that scripture up to “everyone who believes”, and leave out the last part “ to the Jew first”. Nor do most understand Paul’s teachings in Roman’s 11 that show us the key to world revival.

Romans 11: [13] But now I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I lay great stress on my ministry and magnify my office, [14] In the hope of making my fellow Jews jealous [in order to stir them up to imitate, copy, and appropriate], and thus managing to save some of them. [15] For if their rejection and exclusion from the benefits of salvation were [overruled] for the reconciliation of a world to God, what will their acceptance and admission mean? [It will be nothing short of] life from the dead! ( Amp)

We must be educated in the truth of this hour for natural Israel and willing to stand with the Jewish people in the Land and in the diaspora. Two resources to help you understand and articulate the truth are Sandy Teplinsky’s book “Why Still Care About Israel” available on Amazon; and a website of a Jewish organization that has accurate reporting and ways to participate in taking a stand with Israel is www.standwithus.com.

However we must also respond to Romans 10:14 and understand how to bring the truth of Yeshua the Messiah to the Jewish people in Israel and the diaspora. Learning to understand our scriptures from a Hebraic mindset is our first step to be able to relate with our Jewish brother and sisters when we share our love of Messiah Yeshua. Supporting those who are doing the front line work is our second step. Our web site www.oimm.org has a “Blessings the Land” page and I encourage you to go there and find a ministry you can support.

Zechariah 3 tells us if we follow the protocol of God we will govern His house and have charge of His courts. Esther understood that protocol and brought victory for her people.

Zec.3: [7] “Thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘If you will walk in My ways and if you will perform My service, then you will also govern My house and also have charge of My courts, and I will grant you free access among these who are standing here.

God’s protocol has been laid out for us in His word through the tabernacle model. It is our way through intimacy into the courts to hear the heart of God so we can legislate His will here on earth as it is in heaven.

Joseph was sent ahead to make way for provision for his people. Have you been positioned in your appointed boundary to provide provision in time of famine? It’s time to seek the Lord.
