The Mark of Distinction

02 Mar

A Special Feast of Purim 2012 Issue

And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this? Esther 4:14

Shabbat shalom dearly beloved:

Did you know that when you walk in covenant with Elohim and in obedience to His Word there is a Mark that is placed upon you? That is the Mark of Distinction. He placed that Mark of Distinction upon Abram right from the beginning!

And I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing. Genesis 12:2

When the Mark of Distinction is upon you through the Blood of the Covenant, the Blood of Yeshua, you are set apart from the rest. That Mark sets you apart! That means that YHVH (God) does not treat you like the rest of the people. You have now a favored place in His heart and Kingdom. Now, you are to be treated by all the Heavenly Hosts as Royalty as an heir and co-heir with Yeshua the Messiah. As an heir and a co-heir to the Eternal Kingdom, you are now able to do things that others can’t do. You have FREE access to the King at all times! Now that is Favor!

Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

EXECUTORS OF HIS WILL

He does not need to “summon” you to the Throne, you can approach His Majesty every day at any given time and there is no importune time! This is an enormous privilege and not to be taken lightly! We must honor and respect the King of Kings and promptly obey every Commandment that He gives us! If we do then we become the King’s Friends!

You are My friends if you do what I command you. John 15:14

As the King’s friends now we have access not only to the King but to His most intimate secrets and to His top secret plans. As friends, He counts on us to cooperate with Him to carry through His plans throughout the Earth!

No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

When He looks for someone to do something of value, He looks around Him to find His friends to whom He can entrust His Authority!

For the eyes of the YHVH move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chronicles 16:9a

When we carry His Mark of Distinction, we become the executors of His will on earth!

To execute on them the judgment written; this is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise YHVH!  Psalm 149:9

ONE FRIEND OF YAH CAN SAVE A NATION!

In ancient Persia, one such Friend of Yah (God) saved the Jewish Nation from total annihilation through the wicked plan of a descendant of Amalek by the name of Haman who was the right hand to the King. Through conniving and manipulation this evil Amalekite managed to convince the King of Persia to annihilate all the Jews under his domain! This evil personality was offended with the Jews because a certain Jew by the name of Mordechai refused to bow down his knees before him!

But he disdained to lay hands on Mordecai alone, for they had told him who the people of Mordecai were; therefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews, the people of Mordecai, who were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus. Esther 3:6

ESTHER WHERE ART THOU?

When Mordechai learnt of this hideous plan of extermination and “final solution” against his beloved People, he looked around for someone with a Mark of Distinction that had access to the king! He immediately thought of his niece who had been like a daughter to him after she was orphaned. This niece by the name of Hadassa, later on called Esther, had become the wife of the King of Persia. She had become elevated above all other Jews in the Empire!

Though she carried such a Mark of Distinction, she thought that she could hide in her harem and be protected of the wrath to come against her people! In fact she had lost her intimacy with the king and the King of Persia was not calling on her as his confidant, lover and friend. Instead that wicked Amalekite, Haman had fully taken that place that should have belonged only to her!

At the poignant insistence of her uncle Mordechai who confronted her with her own “lukewarm condition” and self- deception, she decided to risk her life to approach the King that she used to be so intimate with (her husband!)

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?” Esther 4:14

A QUEENLY INTERVENTION

She fasted for three days as in Yom Hakippurim (the Day of Atonement) with no food and water together with her made servants. After fasting she was certain that the God of Heaven, the King of Kings had put on her His Mark of Distinction, the Mark that all obedient Jews have as His Chosen People. Then in His boldness and Royal Authority she approached her earthly king and husband at the risk of her life and obtained Favor with him.

She invited her husband and his wicked assistant Haman to a Banquet and after two nights of eating and drinking she disclosed to her king and husband, the hideous plan that his assistant had to destroy her people! Though the King could not revoke his own  decree that he had signed against the Jews in his ignorance, he now gave his signet ring to Esther and to her uncle Mordechai who decreed that the Jews will not go like a “sheep to the slaughter” on the appointed dates for their destruction but that they could defend themselves! That rescued the entire nation from total destruction as the Jews overcame their attackers and overturned the whole situation to their favor and many of the Persians became Jews for the fear of the Jews had fallen upon them!

In each and every province and in each and every city, wherever the king’s commandment and his decree arrived, there was gladness and joy for the Jews, a feast and a holiday. And many among the peoples of the land became Jews, for the dread of the Jews had fallen on them. Esther 8:17

A RELEVANT QUEEN

Through her intervention Esther became a true Queen and not just a decoration in a women’s harem! Because she carried the Mark of Distinction of those who Fear God and do what is right in His sight concerning her people, she now could share the throne with her husband the King of Persia. He would never again rule his Kingdom without the council and assistance of his distinguished Jewish wife and her uncle Mordechai the Jew! Queen Esther became the most relevant Queen of her time. She enjoyed tremendous Royal Favor and co-shared the authority over the Empire with her husband the King! She established the Feast of Purim (casting of lots). This is to celebrate that on the day that had been assigned (according to the casting of lots) as the day of destruction for the Jews it was turned to a day of joy and gladness and deliverance!

The command of Esther established these customs for Purim, and it was written in the book. Esther 9:32

Queen Esther’s intervention rescued the Jewish People from annihilation in Persia. Persia is called Iran today and again the wicked Amalek-Haman is trying to annihilate Israel through the Nuclear Threat. In Israel we love to laugh about ourselves and about the hard situations that we have to constantly face as we are surrounded by cruel enemies. We have been laughing on national TV about the “Iranian thing” that will be happening in the summer this year. Will Iran attack Israel? Will Israel attack Iran first? These are the questions that are being asked.

During Queen Esther’s time the Jews wondered what would happen to them. But the Elohim of the Jews that through the Covenant with Abraham had placed a Mark of Distinction upon them- had already prepared a plan through the intervention of the Queen that He had put in authority in Persia. Though His appointed Queen had forgotten her allegiance to her people and the importance of her Queenly Role, she woke up from her deception and rose to the occasion!

Go, assemble all the Jews who are found in Susa, and fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maidens also will fast in the same way. And thus I will go in to the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish. Esther 4:16

THE END TIME QUEEN!

Also in this day and hour when the threat from Persia (Iran) is happening again, the Almighty has reserved a Queen that for the most part has been in deception due to Replacement Theology. This Queen is the Ecclesia (Church) in the nations! She has received the Mark of Distinction through the Covenant Blood of Yeshua the Jewish Messiah. She has been set apart for such a time as this and has been given great authority!

Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Luke 10:19

She is not walking in this authority yet because she has forgotten who she is and has been “playing church”. She has forgotten her allegiance to her people to whom she has been GRAFTED. (Romans 11:11-25)

For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall. Ephesians 2:14

She has thought that even if wicked Haman (Ahmadinajad, Hitler, Islam etc.) plots to exterminate the Jews, she would be “safe” in the palace- after all she is the Wife of the King! But she has forgotten that the most prevalent slogan among extreme Moslems is: First the Saturday People (the Jews), then the Sunday People (the Christians)! Meaning, we will kill first the Jews and then the Christians.

The Ecclesia (Church) is called to arise to the occasion and to bear the Mark of Distinction as she stands before the King of Kings in prayer and fasting on behalf of the Jewish Nation that is under serious threat. She is also called to approach under the Anointing and Royal Authority of the Living Yah (God), the kings and presidents in her nation to stop their ungodly politics towards Israel and to put their embassies in Jerusalem!

As she does that, she will bear gloriously the Mark of Distinction of those who please the King of Kings and will co-share His Holy Throne for One Thousand Years! (Revelation 20:6)

But if she does not arise to the occasion to help Israel in the time of need and great threats, she must remember that it is First the Saturday People and then the Sunday People.

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?” Esther 4:14

Those that will arise to stand with Israel at this time will bear the Mark of Distinction of the Blessing of Abraham, authority and greatness!

“I will bless those who bless you, curse those who curse you and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed” Genesis 12:3
