In the Old Testament Bible Book of Esther, it relates the story of a young Hebrew woman in Persia, born as Hadassah but known as Esther, who becomes queen of Persia and thwarts genocide of her people, the Jews. The story forms the core of the Festival of Purim that is been celebrated by the Jews around the world to this day.
Many false teachers and prophets in the Christian church today are saying that believers ought to celebrate this significant day of the Festival or feast of Purim in order to just like Esther have their trials turned into victory and their tears into cheers. But is that really so? Of course NOT!!!
True born-again Christian believers have no business celebrating any Old Testament Jewish festival or feast to get any blessing! Why?
Because the Bible says in the New Testament:
“So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for NOT celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ Himself is that reality.” Colossians 2:16-17 NLT
“He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations.” Ephesians 2:15 NLT
Just another lie from the office of the church!
