For all the criticism I have aimed at him in the past few months, I still want my readers to know that there is still a great deal to learn from Glenn Beck. Today, he explained the significance of something Netanyahu said in his speech this past week. It has to do with the Book of Esther. Unfortunately, Beck did not take the connections far enough. I don’t know whether it is due to the fact that he did not think about it, or because does not as much as he needs to or the differences between his religion and the Christian faith prevent him from seeing it. All I know is there is much, much more to Netanyahu’s speech and Biblical prophecy. So much more that I feel compelled to share the connections I see so that those with eyes and ears will be able to see and hear as well.
In his speech, Netanyahu said:
“We’re an ancient people. In our nearly 4,000 years of history, many have tried repeatedly to destroy the Jewish people. Tomorrow night, on the Jewish holiday of Purim, we’ll read the Book of Esther. We’ll read of a powerful Persian viceroy named Haman, who plotted to destroy the Jewish people some 2,500 years ago. But a courageous Jewish woman, Queen Esther, exposed the plot and gave for the Jewish people the right to defend themselves against their enemies. The plot was foiled. Our people were saved. Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us.”
The figures and roles may be different, but — Biblically — the events and message are the same. Netanyahu was playing the part of Mordeci. We know this because Netanyahu said it. This puts the American People in the role of Esther and Obama as the king. The warning, then, is simple. Either America comes to the defense of Israel, or there is no guarantee that America will survive. God may remove America — just as he removed Israel and Judah when he sent them into exile (which is where the events in Esther happen — while Judah was in exile in Babylon).
Now, if you are not a Bible believer, do not be so quick to dismiss the significance of Netanyahu’s warning. This is not the first repetition of God’s warnings to ancient Israel that have been sent to America. 9/11 was also a warning, and it was straight out of the book of Isaiah
, given before Israel was finally judged and sent into exile. For more on this warning, read The Harbinger
, or watch the video
. The parallels are beyond coincidence, and when you add them to the parallels in Netanyahu’s speech, it goes beyond the laws of probability — especially when timing and world events are factored into the equation. Skeptics always demand signs that God is real, and God responds. He is giving them now, and just as in ancient Israel, the scoffers to not hear. But, just as in ancient Israel, neither do those who call themselves by His name are deaf and blind to His warnings. But there is more.
This week, Saudi Arabia declared Obama to be one of the worst American Presidents — ever!
We should not ignore the importance of this. It is not because Obama is working to weaken Israel. Saudi Arabia shares that goal. The significance is that Obama considers Iran an ally
. This means, even though he is working to undermine Israel, Obama is an enemy of Saudi Arabia. But this is not readily apparent — unless you understand Islam and Islamic prophecy. You see, Islamic prophecy says that Mecca will be destroyed right before the end times (this link is from an Islamic site and explains these prophecies
). Iran is seeking to destroy Saudi Arabia because the Shi’a Muslims in Iran consider the Sunni Muslims in Saudi Arabia to be apostate. The Iranians also believe they can hasten the return of their Mahdi by destroying Mecca. If I were you, I would watch for this to happen — not just because Islam is divided and at war with itself, but because this is exactly what the Bible foretells.
This is the last of the connections. Bible prophecy foretells the destruction of Saudi Arabia
. Now, for those who do not believe in God and Satan, I understand that you may be inclined to brush all this off as forcing vague passages to fit the times. This is — in part — because the Church has actually done this in the past. The problem today, however, is that there are very specific prophecies that have only been understood since 1945. Before then, they could not be understood because man had not experienced the things necessary to understand them. Now we have. Also, since 1948 and 1967, we have been able to unlock Daniel’s prophecies, and they do not say what the Church has believed for the past few hundred years. So, to those who dismiss prophecy, I beg you to start studying it — and do so with sincere ernesty. You are about to see God’s hand in a way you had not anticipated. And for those who already believe, get to work doing what the Lord sent you to do. Time is short!
The last part of Daniel was sealed for the last generation, and we now know what that last part of Daniel says. It is affirmed in Zechariah, and with the events of 1948 and 1967, but also by Christ in Matthew 24. So, please, if you belong to the Lord, make sure you have oil for your lamp for the Bride Groom comes soon!

true, as well as in the blood moons and their connection to the Jewish high holy days/feasts of the Lord. At some point, even the hardest case should be able to see and admit that ALL of these things are pointing to the same thing: the imminent return of Christ.
The festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.”
The story in a nutshell:
The Persian empire of the 4th century BCE extended over 127 lands, and all the Jews were its subjects. When King Ahasuerus had his wife, Queen Vashti, executed for failing to follow his orders, he orchestrated a beauty pageant to find a new queen. A Jewish girl, Esther, found favor in his eyes and became the new queen—though she refused to divulge the identity of her nationality.
Meanwhile, the anti-Semitic Haman was appointed prime minister of the empire. Mordechai, the leader of the Jews (and Esther’s cousin), defied the king’s orders and refused to bow to Haman. Haman was incensed, and convinced the king to issue a decree ordering the extermination of all the Jews on the 13th of Adar—a date chosen by a lottery Haman made.
Mordechai galvanized all the Jews, convincing them to repent, fast and pray to G‑d. Meanwhile, Esther asked the king and Haman to join her for a feast. At the feast, Esther revealed to the king her Jewish identity. Haman was hanged, Mordechai was appointed prime minister in his stead, and a new decree was issued—granting the Jews the right to defend themselves against their enemies.
On the 13th of Adar, the Jews mobilized and killed many of their enemies. On the 14th of Adar, they rested and celebrated.
Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:
Much to think about here!
But with Pakistan helping SA, don’t you think it’s possible that they are armed first? I don’t understand Obama’s love of Iran as he himself is an apostate.
How do you know Obama is an apostate? His actions place him firmly within the limits of Shari’a law, and on the side of Shi’a Islam. So I do not understand why you believe as you do — especially since I know you are not ignorant of these facts. I know that because I know you read my posts, and I have explained them. So again, I do not understand how you come to the conclusions you draw.
But he smokes and attends, or used to attend, a “Christian” church. He also eats pork…..and dances…..and drinks alcohol….. thought these were big no-nos…..
If you would listen to me, then you would know that Islam allows Muslims to do all of that — under certain conditions. He is perfectly within Shari’a law, Kells.
Today I was searching for blogs that discussed the Esther story, the celebration of Purim, and how the spiritual significance of “such a time as this” was told via Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to the Joint Session of Congress. So glad I found your blog!
Have linked to this post and added you to my following list.
Christine, you bless me. By affirming that you find value in my treatment of God’s work, I know I am walking in obedience to His will. Thank you, and God bless. 🙂
You’re most welcome! Truth tellers need to stick together and share what God’s Word says in order to overcome all the lies out there in this fallen world.
Read your link to the WND article. I have a friend who read “Gods War on Terror” and is going to lend it to me this coming week.
It is my hope to learn more about Bible prophecy and share it with family, friends, and on my blog.
I look forward to reading your blog posts!
When you read Shoebat’s book, chck his scriptural references and make sure you agree with his reading of them. I agree with the central theme of his book: Islam is the final Beast. However, Shoebat believes we are looking for a single man known as ‘THE Antichrist.’ I do not. You may want to read this post:
The Spirit of Antichrist
There is a different take on prophecy, and it is one I think ALL of God’s people need to start considering. You may be aware of Ellis Skolfield. If not, look up Fish House Ministries, find, download and start reading the 70 Weeks of Daniel study guide. I will post on this very soon, so you will be able to find the ‘Cliff Notes’ here by this time next week.
I must admit, I haven’t heard of that idea before. However, after almost 25 years of Bible reading and study, I know that I have never “arrived” at knowing all that God’s Word has in it to tell me! Can’t say that about any other book on earth – that’s for sure!
I have read and studied (many times!) the book of Revelation and read many commentaries. I also have read (many times) a book called, “Revelation: Unlocking the Future” and have done posts about it at my two blogs. [see this one: Revelation: Unlocking The Future]
I also studied “Agents of the Apocalypse” with Dr. David Jeremiah.
In most of my studies, the “unholy trinity” (meant to mirror and mock God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) of the Beast, the False Prophet, and the Anti-Christ are discussed.
I do understand the Bible verses that state, “there are many antichrists in the world.” I would agree with you that they don’t refer to just one person. But the phrase, “This is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard was coming, and now is already in the world” refers to the “many antichrists” spoken about. However, most of the studying that I have done and the books and commentaries that I have read all agree with the concept of an unholy trinity working together during the Tribulation of the End Times.
Just as God is “three Persons in One,” so is the antichrist. That term means “instead of” or “against” Christ. For the embodiment of the antichrist to one day “so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God,” I think that this description makes more sense.
Of course, I and the many other scholars who have taught this may be wrong.
Well, one day we will find out the absolute truth on all of these differing issues. But I appreciate you sharing your view(s) with me.
You have it in Islam. Allah in God’s place, Muhammad in Christ’s and Islam also speaks of the ‘holy spirit.’ Yet, Islam denies the Trinity — exactly what John tells us the spirit of antichrist will do.
We are not under the law. We live under the New Covenant. So where is the Lord’s Temple? In the heart of every believer — just as Scripture tells us. This means Paul may be refering to every person who thinks in his heart that he is his own god. Incidentally, secular humanists have been making this exact boast for over 100 years: that man is his own god. So this fits, too 🙂
Finally, go back to Daniel and read what Gabriel tells him about the Prince who is to come. The greater context tells us that Gabriel is not talking about a man, but a spirit. And Gabriel also mentions ‘the people’ who will destroy the temple. Well, the actual people were mercenaries recruited from what is now Syria and Turkey: areas referred to in Islam as Gog and Megog! We are also told that the Beasts are kingdoms, so we should not make them into men when we have no Scriptural authority to do so. Nor should we assume that Rome is the 4th Beast. Google greco-roman and see what you find. The world considers Greece and Rome to be the same culturally and politically. What’s more, ROme did not trample and destroy as the 4th beast will. Read the Gospels and you find that Rome had allowed the Jews to keep their culture and their own government/courts. But what does Islam do when it conquers a nation? It changes the times, laws and tramples all traces of that nations religious and cultural past. This is why they are destroying artifacts. Once again, the pieces fit without any need to force them.
My friend, I am NOT saying it is what we should believe, but I AM saying we should all consider this with an open mind. And by all means, be a Berean and test it against Scripture. Go here and download the Study Guide on Daniel. It is only an outline, so do not expect all questions to be addressed. Use it as a guide and see what you think. If you are like me, you are going to be caught until you finish working through it, then you are going to go WOW! And then you may go “I am SOOO sorry, Lord!” Just let me know what you think. You may end up helping me see where, how and why I have been deceived 🙂
