(Lots, this year 2019 or 5779 Jewish calendar - 

falls on the eve of (March 20 - Adar 1)through the eve of (March 22.  - Adar 11)


The primary instigator of these problems was a government official, Haman. As Haman rose to power,  he insisted on the homage he felt was due him. In good pagan tradition, Haman required all the king's servants to bow before him. Among them was Mordechai

to (Mordecai), who had once uncovered a plot  to kill the king. Being a Jew, Mordechai was  the only one who refused to bow to Haman as this would

be viewed as idolatry. Scripture says, "Haman was filled with rage" at such insubordination and desired to do away with all Jewish people in Persia

(Est.3). Haman devised an evil and insidious way to set the exact time of examination ( not unlike Hitler's "Final Solution"). He cast the lot ( pur in Hebrew) to set the date " to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, from  young to old, including  small children and women on a specific day,

the thirteenth day of the Twelfth month, the month of Adar, and to seize their goods as plunder. (Est.3:13). Times could not have looked darker. But as Mordecai and his people turned to fasting and prayer, a rescue plan developed. In a strange turn of events, a beautiful Jewish girl named Ester (Esther)

had earlier been appointed as queen of Persia. Mordecai, Ester's uncle, saw in this great "coincidence" a way the Jewish queen could help. Even 

though Ester had reached the pinnacle of Persian society, her uncle challenged her with some powerful words: "Don't suppose that merely because you happen to be in the royal palace you will escape any more than other Jews. For if you fail to speak up now, relief and deliverance will come to the Jews from a different direction; but you and your father's family will perish. Who knows whether you didn't come into your royal position precisely for such a time a this." (Est. 4:13-14)

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior.

If we accept human witness, God's witness is stronger, because it is the witness which God has given about His Son.                                                                                                                                                                                                  1 John 5:9
