So what's the Feast of Lots or Purim? The root word in Purim is pur, which means "lots." Haman was the Prime Minister of Persia at that time. He cast lots to see what day they would kill the Jews and the lot fell on Adar 13. God used Esther to intervene and He saved the Jews from genocide.
Purim is also known as 'The Feast of Esther', 'The Feast of Lots', and 'Mordecai's Day.' It's called the 'Feast of Esther' in remembrance of Queen Esther's banquet with the King. Its called 'The Feast of Lots' because Haman cast lots to determine the day the Persians would kill all Jews. It was called 'Mordecai's Day' in ancient times. Mordecai was the uncle of Esther, he convinced Esther to intervene with the King to save the Jews.
The book of Acts gives us an easy example to follow:
You may ask what am I believing?
That's Jesus is your Lord and that he defeated Satan and the power of death and rose again.
What does this mean to me and how I approach life and challenges?
Jesus has given you his unmerited favor (grace) and Jesus has given you his faith. (That's right it's not your faith you're relying on)
You may not know me, but I know everything about you. Psalm 139:1 I know when you sit down and when you rise up. Psalm 139:2 I am familiar with all your ways. Psalm 139:3 Even the very hairs on your head are numbered. Matthew 10:29-31 For you were made in my image. Genesis 1:27 In me you live and move and have your being. Acts 17:28 For you are my offspring. Acts 17:28 I knew you even before you were conceived. Jeremiah 1:4-5 I chose you when I planned creation. Ephesians 1:11-12 You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book. Psalm 139:15-16 I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live. Acts 17:26 You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14 I knit you together in your mother's womb. Psalm 139:13 And brought you forth on the day you were born. Psalm 71:6 I have been misrepresented by those who don't know me. John 8:41-44 I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love.
Why do we need faith?
