THE HIDDEN HANDS of GOD The Hidden Hands of Yahweh

With the Hidden Hands of God the Holy Spirit is always at Work in the Life's of the Believers!

THE HIDDEN HANDS of GOD

The Hebrew word for

Hands

is

KAF

or

KHAP

: The word hands is

symbolic of Crowning and Accomplishment!

Hands also The word symbolise the followings : to embrace and fold, power, to tame, bend, or subdue.

The HANDS of GOD not only symbolised Eternity but it holds All of Eternity in them!

According to Jewish Talmudic sequence of the Hebrews Aleph- Beis teaches: If one carry out what the word Kaf for {hands} stand for, namely learning the

Torah and acting kindly

, then God, will give you,

sustenance, acceptance, good and inheritance.

Finally, Yahweh will affix a crown upon you. There are three types of crowns:

the crown of priesthood, the crown of kingship, and the crown of the Torah,

but a fourth one, a crown of a good name – and is said to be superior to them All.

THE HIDDEN HANDS of GOD

Hebrew : YAD { Torah Pointer } and it meaning: In the Scriptures

In the Scriptures, the word

yad

is used to refer to a physical hand, but more often it is used idiomatically to refer to the

power

or the

craft of a person or group.

Thus we read of the “

hand of the enemy

,” “the hand of the Philistines,” the “

hands of Moses

,” and especially the “

Hand of God

.” The Torah Scroll (Sefer Torah) is one of the most precious objects of Jewish worship. To show respect (and to protect the scroll from dirt and oil from the reader’s hands), a Yad or Torah pointer is normally used while reading. Most yadim are made of beautifully wrought silver. Note: is states that

The pointing end of the Yad is commonly shaped like a small hand with its index finger extended.

The HIDDEN HANDS of GOD The Book of Esther

Elohim’s

hand of providence and protection on behalf of His people is evident throughout the Book of Esther, though

His name

does not appear once.

Haman’s plot

brings grave danger to the Jews and is countered by the courage of beautiful

Esther

and the counsel of her cousin Mordecai , resulting in a great deliverance. The

Jewish Feast of Purim

becomes an

annual reminder of God’s faithfulness on behalf of His people.

Queen Esther’s Hebrew name was

Hadassah

, which means “Myrtle” {Esther 2:7}, but her Persian name

Ester

was derived from the Persian word for “star” (stara).

The Greek title for this book is Esther, and the

Latin

title is

Hester.

In Jewish literature, the upper

represents

the

hidden aspect of YHVH

, (ein sof -

without end

”), whereas the

lower Yod represents the revelation of YHVH to mankind.

The

Vav

, whose meaning is “

,”

shows connectedness between the two spiritual realms .

Vav

is also thought

to represent humanity, since Adam was created on the sixth day

.

Vav

is diagonal since it is

humbled in the face of God’s mystery and His revelation

. The

indicate the paradox of experiencing God as both hidden and close, far and near. Aleph H

The closed round letter, represents the idea of Divine support, both in the active sense that God provides support to man and the passive sense that man relies on Him.

The Meaning of Samekh

The root of the word Samekh means “

to lean upon

,” “

to uphold

,” or “

to support

.” The

root is also found in the Jewish concept of semikhah

, the laying on of hands upon the head of a sacrificial victim in a blood ritual of the Jewish Temple, which was also a means of

consecrating the priesthood

(Lev 8; Exodus 29,). Biblical references to the root occur in Lev 16:21, Deut 34:9, Ezekiel 24:2, and elsewhere. In ancient times, Samekh may have represented a

shield.

Today, the

Jewish Rabbinical ordination ceremony

is called a semikhah. Then you shall bring the bull before the tent of meeting. Aaron and his sons shall lay (samakh) their hands on the head of the bull. Exodus 29:10

someone who humbles himself in brokenness and submission to the LORD God

THE HIDDEN HANDS of GOD The Book of Esther: Biblical Historical Background

The book of Esther is set in the reign of Ahasuerus (the biblical name for Xerxes, king of Persia 485-465 BC), though the Septuagint version calls the king Artaxeres, presumably Artaxerxes I Longimanus (464-424), but possibly Artaxeres II Mnemon (404-359).

The book narrates the life of a Jewish maiden, who is orphaned, reared by her uncle, becomes queen of the

Persian Empire

, and

saves the Jews living in the empire

from the

scheming of Haman

, the Agagite. The Hebrew version it relates to {fifth century}, and may be a product of the Greek period (for example, after 332 BCE}. The Septuagint version, which intersperses

another 107 verses

, probably took its shape in the second or first century BCE.

The significance of the Book of Esther is that it testifies to the secret watch care of Jehovah over dispersed Israel . The

name of God does not once occur,

but in no

other book of the Bible is His providence more conspicuous

. A mere

remnant returned to Jerusalem

. The

mass of the nation preferred the easy and have a lucrative life under the Persian rule

.

But God did not forsake them. What He here does for Judah, He is surely doing for all the covenant people

.

Rosh Chodesh Adar רדא שדח שאר - The Month of March

On the

Biblical calendar

the month of Adar (

ר ָד ֲא

) is the last month of the year counting from Nisan (during a leap year it is called Adar II). Adar is also the month of

Purim

, a

festive holiday

which is always celebrated a month before

Passover

(Megillah 1:4).

During both Purim and Passover the children of Israel celebrate God's deliverance of His people

, and therefore

Adar is considered the happiest of the months of the Jewish year

: "

When Adar comes, joy is increased

" (Ta'anit 29a). This year the month of Adar begins on Wednesday, 22 nd February, and

Purim

begins two weeks later, under the full moon (for example Wednesday, 7

th

March). That means that Passover begins one lunar month later, on Friday,

6 th April

(at sundown).

The Whole Megillah: Is the Scroll of Esther. God ’s Hiddenness and Disclosure

Much is made over the fact that the

book of Esther

is the only book of the

Tanakh

that

does not explicitly mention the Name of God

.

However, the

idea of God's sovereignty

and

hashgachah

(

divine providence

) is clearly implied throughout the entire story. In light of this

nistar

,

or

"hidden miracle

" of the

nes

Jew's deliverance, Esther and Mordecai ordained that Purim should be observed

as a "

day of feasting and merrymaking

" and of sending gifts to the poor (

Esther 9:22,28

).

PURIM

was so named because

Haman

had cast lots (Purim) to

determine the day on which to destroy the Jews

.

The Jewish Prayer of PURIM

Blessed are You, HASHEM, our God, King of the universe, {the God} Who takes up our grievance, judges our claim, avenges our wrong; Who brings just retribution upon all enemies of our soul and exacts vengeance for us from our foes. Blessed are You, HASHEM, Who exacts vengeance for His people Israel from all their foes, the God Who brings salvation.

for its plot seems to be a string of coincidences that come together to produce a happy ending.

An Overview of the Narrative of Esther

Vashti

the Reluctant Queen

There are those who see

Queen Vashti

as a hero, a champion of women and women’s rights everywhere. To these, Vashti represents the epitome of self-respect and self-determinism. The fact that Vashti refused to obey such a heinous request by no means denigrates her, but rather

demonstrates

the

insensitivity

and

immorality

of her

husband

although He was Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered

” (

Heb. 5:8

). Jesus emptied Himself of His own will, and this culminated in obedience to the point of death on the cross (

Phil. 2:7-8

SYNOPSIS: HIDDEN HANDS of GOD

The

book of Esther

is predicated and affirmed on a sort-of halfway

meeting

of the

minds.

Queen Vashti is indeed banned by King Ahasuerus’

decreed on the advised of his counsellors

and a national beauty pageant is held to find a replacement.

Esther

, a Jewess, is chosen and the story of how she becomes the vessel that God would used to protected the

Jewish people

by her intervention with the king is the focus for the Purim Festival .

Esther disobeys her husband’s commands, as did Vashti, but in Esther’s case, she does so with a display of humility that wins her the king’s favour

. In other words,

whereas Vashti was openly rebellious

,

Esther

used her

wiles

well,
