For such a time as this
For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Est 4:1)
Greetings from Jerusalem!
As we prepare for our annual Purim celebration this week at FZS, we remember once again the Lord’s gracious deliverance from our jealous enemy Haman who had vowed to destroy us. His plan was almost successful except for the faith of Easter who approached the King and begged for mercy for her people. As a result, the Jews were saved from Haman’s evil plans and he himself was put to death instead of the Jews.
I believe the Church today is likewise called to stand in the gap for the Jewish people through prayers, support and Intercession for Israel’s deliverances from our hostile neighbors who are once again threatening us openly with annihilation…
Thank you so much for standing with us!!!

Big Help from Holland
