The Book of Esther
Chapter 5
Caution to students of God's Word - Please remember two things when using our studies: #1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say. For example: According to the notes in the "Dake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was)! That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?  Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... Having said that, let us continue with our "studies". These studies contain knowledge, we believe, you must have to fully and accurately unlock and understand the Word of God.

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. [14] He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

 Now here is our revised study of:

The Book of Esther

Chapter 5

"Esther and the King. [1 - 14]"
"Esther's Second Invitation. [9 - 14]"

This fifth chapter of Esther will have two acrostics in it.  The acrostic in verse four will not be as the first acrostic that was given backward [HVHY] in Esther 1:20 , whereby the Sacred name of our Heavenly Father is given here as "YHVH".  The third acrostic in verse eleven will have the Sacred name in reverse, "HVHY".  

Many people say that this chapter will begin a new life for Israel , however the true House of Israel had been scattered over a hundred years prior to this story's event, by the Assyrians.  They were removed off their land, and migrated to lands far to the north and scattered under the identity of many other names.  No we are still talking about a story here, and in that story the focus is on the Kenites, those sons of Cain that had moved in to live with the house of Judah, and the people of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin.  In time, through the captivity of Babylon, these Kenites had taken over the duties of the Levites as the scribes and priests of those two tribes.

Since we simply cannot treat this book as a historical reality, but instead, a story that was written by Kenite scribes for their own satisfaction, we will treat it as such, and we'll search for the acrostics God has placed in it, marking those things that we should not over look, for our proper understanding of these end times.    

Esther  5:1   "Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king's house, over against the king's house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house.

In this period of time, all houses had an inner court, and the palaces had several.  In one of these court yards in Shushan is where King Ahasuerus had placed his chair, and it became the place for making decisions.  This court yard was where the business of his empire was transacted. 

Queen Esther put on her royal gown and entered into the king's house and went into the court yard where the king was sitting and doing his business of the day.  So in that the king is on his royal throne, Esther stood back and waited on the king to ask her to approach.   

Esther 5:2   "And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand.  So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre."  

In time the king saw Esther standing at a distance in the court yard, and he raised his scepter and asked her to approach the throne.  Esther came to the extended scepter, and touched the top of the scepter.  Esther did not come to that court yard for the sake of being timid and hanging her head down low.  She was there and in plain sight so that the king would not miss seeing her amongst all the business going on at that moment in time.  She was there to get the king's attention, and she would use everything within her power to gain that attention.  In the story, the life of her people was at stake, in her mind, and the approach that Esther used in appearing to be non-aggressive and humble, was to gain the upper hand with the king.  When she finally reached the king, she made a point of touching the top of the scepter where he held it.    

Esther 5:3   "Then said the king unto her, "What wilt thou, queen Esther? and what is thy request? it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom."  

Remember from the first chapter, when the drunken princes of the kingdom called out to see Vashti in her feminine things and she would not come.  Well Esther must have worn what ever Vashti refuse to wear, for that royal nighty caused the king to offer Esther half of his world kingdom.  This king's kingdom was supposed to have all the peoples from India to Egypt, the known civilized world of the day, under his throne.  The king just offered half of all their riches to Esther.  Something just doesn't add up here, so there must be a hidden meaning to what is said here, and that is what is given in the next verse.   

Esther 5:4   "And Esther answered, If it seem good unto the king, LET THE KING AND HAMAN COME THIS DAY unto the banquet that I have prepared for him."  

It appears that the writer of this book is trying to let people living in these end times that have the understanding of God's Word, know that what was happening here was worth paying attention to.  Here in verse four is our second acrostic: from the Hebrew text we must keep in mind that the Hebrew is read from right to left, whereas the English is read from left to right, thus in the English it may not read as in the Hebrew.       

                                    1           2                    3                  4

 (In Hebrew it reads)  Yobo    Hammelek    Vehaman    Hayyom.  "YHVH"  

The next part of the second acrostic:  

  In English)  Let-come   the-king    and-Haman   this-day (by translation)  

                       1                 2               3                   4                  

 (In Hebrew   Let              Our           Royal            Dinner   "LORD"  

This acrostic is spelled forward, and as such Jehovah is seen as not over-ruling the councils of Gentiles for the accomplishment of His own people.  It then becomes prophecy and God will allow it to stand in this end generation.  This then is the second pivot on which the history within this story turns.  Esther is telling the king that she has planned for just the king and Haman.  Remember by this time, Haman has been promoted to the second in command for all of the empire, only under this king.  

So we see God's stamp of approval on what is to take place within this story, and God will allow the Kenites to move in and take control of the deception planned, and the existing government removed.  This is what that day of Purim is all about, the rejoicing of the Kenites taking complete control of the world system of the end time Babylon .  Haman means "Magnificent, and it is given here that what is to take place is with God's approval.   

Esther 5:5   "Then the king said, "Cause Haman to make haste, that he may do as Esther hath said."  So the king and Haman came to the banquet that Esther had prepared."  

The king accepted the invitation for both himself and for Haman.   

Esther 5:6   "And the king said unto Esther at the banquet of wine, "What is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request?"  

The use of pity by Esther worked, and it is now time to get ready for this party banquet.   

Esther 5:7   "Then answered Esther, and said, "My petition and my request is;"  

Esther gave the banquet, and the two were present for the meal.  At the close of the dinner, wine feast, Esther is to present her request that the king granted her.  So if this were prophecy to our generation of the end times, notice how this playing around with the end result continues until it become time to end Haman, and all that he stood for.  When that time comes, Amos tells us exactly what will take place.  Just like the doing away with Vashti, and Haman, so will the hearing of the Ten Commandments, the Word of God and all those that seek to advance His Word.   

Amos 8:11, 12   "Behold the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:" [11]  "And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord and shall not find it." [12]   

Stop and look at what is happening today, as our religious leaders and governmental leaders are setting the stage for this action to come to pass.  The religion and philosophies of eastern thought are replacing the things of the Lord.  Our Heavenly Father has given us His Word, and that set of laws and instructions, such as the Ten Commandments are to be the guidelines for our lives.  Knowledge of God's Holy Word is wisdom.  Yet the world, including the Christian churches today are starting to allow the mental balance that only comes from His Word, to be replaced by the philosophy of human morals, as created by man.  Man seek’s his own wisdom from his logic, and ethics, to create his own system of principles for conduct of life. 

Mental balance of today is based on his own composer of thought to bring peace through compromise.  Today you take two steps forward and one step backward.  Until at the end, God's laws and morals are completely replaced with a system that the world will be under at the time of Satan's arrival here on earth.  It is coming and God is telling you to expect it.  This is why it becomes so important to seal the truths of God's Word away in your mind, and make it part of you, for the time is coming when what is of the world will seem right, and what is of God and His Word will seem wrong and of the devil.   

Esther 5:8   "If I have found favour in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition, and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet That I shall prepare for them, and I will do it morrow as the king hath said."  

Esther's request is to give one more party for the king and Haman the next day.

Remember two steps forward and one step back.  She is going to do the cooking herself, and then she will tell the king what she wants for her request.  Haman just had one good free meal and here he is asked to return the next day for another meal.  When Haman was on his way home, joy filled his heart and his mind was focused on the good time that he would have tomorrow.

Esther 5:9  "Then went Haman forth that day joyful and with a glad heart: but when Haman saw Mordecai in the king's gate, that he stood not up, nor moved for him, he was full of indignation against Mordecai."  

As Haman passed the king's gate where the judgments were made and business transacted for the kingdom, there sat Mordecai.  As Haman approached Mordecai, he expected respect to be given him like all the other people would do. However Mordecai sat there and didn't make a move.  Haman could see the hatred of Mordecai, and this caused anger to rise in the mind of Haman as he passed by.  What ever joy was there in his mind was now removed and replaced by this indignation against Mordecai.

Again, because of the acrostic, there is a warning for us, pay attention to this verse.  When you are dealing with Kenites, and it would appear that all of a sudden you have everything going in your favor, you may not.  Kenites are the ones that want to be given this false sense of honor and prestige; so be careful as to what you say and do around them.  If you don't think that this point is important, then watch what is about to happen to Haman.       

Esther 5:10    "Nevertheless Haman refrained himself: and when he came home, he sent and called for his friends, and Zeresh his wife."  

Haman held his temper at this moment in time when Mordecai showed him or his office no respect, and went on home to his wife.  Haman by this time has mixed feelings for he has just left the banquet given him in the presence of the king and queen, yet this one man at the gate of the king needs to be taught a lesson.  If Mordecai's disrespect for the office continues, it could spread.  Remember that over a year had passed since Haman was given the right to get rid of all the Jews, and not one thing had been done about it yet.  Each day the lots were thrown, and it was put off.  This disrespect for the king and all that his government stood for had gone on for over a year at this time.  The people had become numb with it, and learned to listen and ignore it.  

Esther 5:11    "And Haman told them of the glory of his riches, and the multitude of his children, and all the things wherein the king had promoted him, and how he had advanced him above the princes and servants of the king."  

As Haman was boasting of himself by the many good things that Esther had told him, he was thinking of all the things he could tell his friends about himself.  Haman was second in command in the kingdom, he had riches, and the promise of many more as he became more and more known in the kingdom.  Think of what is being said here, and think of the method of operation that Satan used to cause flesh men and women to follow him in their sins.  Esther has built all of this into the mind of Haman, and when Mordecai rejected that authority to his face, it enraged him.  

However as we study the book of Daniel: Daniel 6:1-3; "It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;" [1]  "And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage." [2]  "Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm." [3]  

By this, there should be no doubt that in this book of Esther; Haman, Esther and Mordecai are here in our Bibles for other reasons than being historical, and factual.  It is given as a guide for Christians to be aware of the Kenites, and what God will allow them to do in and to this final generation.   

That is why Jesus stated in Matthew 24:32; "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:"  When you see those things  spoken of in prophecy about the Kenites in the end times, know that the end is not far away.  

Matthew 24:33, 34   "So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." [33]   "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." [34]    

Jesus gave us many examples in parable form, and when he did He always explained it to his disciples so they would understand.  To the Kenites many things just don't make sense because it is not written to them.  The lessons from this writing is for the ears of God's elect, and those that have had their minds opened by the Holy Spirit.  This book of Esther is just such a writing.  In reality, it is just a story, yet within that story Christians living in these end times are taught to understand more of the methods of operations of the Kenites.   

If the Holy Spirit opens the mind of a Kenite to receive the Word of God, and he comes to the understanding of God's love and Grace, and repents, then he is saved and no longer a Kenite, but a son of the Living God.  Yet all souls living today in these flesh bodies, whether they are Kenites, or any other descendant from God's sixth and eighth day creation of flesh man, have only one way to approach our Heavenly Father, and that way is in repentance in the name and under the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, given on the cross. 

When ever the Sacred Name of YHVH is given in reverse order as in an acrostic, you know that our Heavenly Father wants us to sit up and take notice.  That is exactly what has happened in Esther 5:13; and it will also happened in Esther 1:20.         

Esther 5:12   "Haman said moreover, "Yea, Esther the queen did let no man come in with the king unto the banquet that she had prepared but myself; and to morrow am I invite unto her also with the king."  

As you read this story, keep in mind that the world Empire of that day was Babylon , not Persia or Media.  King Nebuchadnezzar was the king, and he placed Daniel second in command, and stationed him here in Shushan.  These Kenites that are writing this story, are gazing at Daniel daily and seeing his respect for the God and His ways, and thus as the writer of this book is setting up this Haman in his story: Daniel was his example of dignity.  When you understand the ways of the Kenites, you can see the dislike for this character of the story called Haman who in their minds is representitive of Daniel and his position in the empire.  They know Daniel loves the Lord which is why they loath him,

Editor's Memo: Don't be confused here. The Jews of the former "House of Judah" who this story is about are a mixed bag of people at the time when this story is written; especially since being taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon. Some of them are Kenites, i.e. descendants of Satan through Cain from the Garden of Eden. The others being descendants of Israelites of the two southern tribes that made up the "House of Judah", Judah and Benjamin. Do they all hate the Lord? Certainly not! Daniel for one and I'm sure many others remain faithful to our Lord and as was stated in Jeremiah 3. Jeremiah is talking here about both kingdoms. First the northern kingdom, ten tribe "House of Israel. 3:7  And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it. Second the southern kingdom two tribe "House of Judah." 8  And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; (Put her away He did! She was carried off by the Assyrians 135 years before Nebuchadnezzar took the "House of Judah" captive). yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.   9  And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones (the stones are the descendants of Satan) and with stocks. 10  And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD. 11  And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah. As we see from the above Scripture Judah WAS WORSE THAN ISRAEL, but I don't believe, extremely so. (and we, who descended from the former "House of Israel"  have become the Christian nations of the world (in mainly Europe and the Americas). My point being, if we had enough members among us for the Holy Spirit to use to change enough hearts to become Christian; I know for a fact the former members of the "House of Judah" also does. [Ezekiel's TWO STICKS prove that day will come.] Ezekiel 37:15  The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, 16  Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: 17  And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. So the Jews in this story of Esther are a mixed people but there leadership is Kenite!

Live Link to-  Ezekiel's dry dead bones.  The two Houses (sticks) become one in the end time.

Now, back to Esther and the third acostic.

Esther 5:13   "Yet all THIS AVAILETH ME NOTHING, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's gate."

Here again is the third acrostic in the book of Esther.  Note the four words; "THIS AVAILETH ME NOTHING".  

                           1                  2                3        4   

(Hebrew text)   zH    eynnennV     shoveH     leY     (Reversed, YHVH)

                                         1        2      3            4

(English)  "Yet am I   saD    foR    nO    avaiL."     (Reversed, LORD)  

Again, as we saw in the first acrostic, the sacred name of YHVH is reversed, thus Jehovah is seen over-ruling the councils of Gentiles for the accomplishment of His own people.  My fellow Christian, no one puts the sacred name in reverse unless the purpose is to deliver a message to those He loves.  God is warning each of us living in these end times, and in this end generation that something is wrong with what is going on around us.  Check out what seems to be right, and pay attention to it, for thing’s still appear to be according to the Word when they are not.  

Haman went forth from the banquet "joyful and with a glad heart" as we say in verse nine "that day".  Yet it was to be his last.  This is the message that we are to receive from this third Acrostic.  This Acrostic is formed with the final letters, for the end was approaching; and the name is spelt backward, for Jehovah was overruling Haman's gladness, and turning back Haman's counsel.   

Christian, you are in this last generation, and the parable of the fig tree is taking place all around you.  This was one of Jesus final warning to you, His Child that would be living to face and represent Him in these final days.  Haman's mind turned to himself, and the riches and glory that were bestowed him by this Kenite Queen Esther, or the religious part that was ruling the world within this story line of this book.  Remember Jesus warning to us at this time?  Matthew  24:33 "So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors."  It is at the doors of your city and national government, your church and schools, and even at and within your own houses.  

Live Link to->>> The parable of the Fig Tree

So do you really think that God is going to allow you to fly out of here and escape in a rapture, when He has warned you so many times, and is such detail?  Jesus told us in Matthew 24:34, 35; "Verily [truly] I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." [34] "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away." [35] 

Historically this book of Esther isn't worth much except to the Kenites, but to Christians it should assist each of us in knowing what to expect in these latter days, and how to protect our minds when the flood of lies and deceit start flowing our way.        

Esther 5:14    "Then said Zeresh his wife and all his friends unto him, "Let a gallows be made of fifty cubits high, and to morrow speak thou unto the king that Mordecai may be hanged thereon: then go thou in merrily with the king unto the banquet."  And the thing pleased Haman; and he caused the gallows to be made."  

Haman  was sure of himself and that he was at the top of his profession, and in a swift moment he will find himself in dire need.  Old Haman was simply not aware of the things that were taking place that would have removed him from office and claim his very life.  So as the plot thickens, this story is getting more and more like what is going on today around us, with all the lies and deception that is part of our every day life.  It starts at the bottom, and flows all the way through the system to the very top.  

Men say one thing and do another, they vote one way one day, and against that stand the next.  It all depends on where the power is and money is flowing, and that is as deep as any political or judicial person will stand.  The purse strings are controlled by the Kenites today, and they set people up with their presses and air waves, and they tare down whom they please.  Don't get caught in Satan and the Kenites trap, for this story is a warning to each of us.
