From our post in 2016
“I have a special interest in Purim. Not that I am Jewish, but it on was Purim 2011 that we wrote our first Jewish holiday post on our 3-month-old blog.
Haman made me curious. At the time I was leading a prophecy study group and I remember making a white board with Haman’s name and a few other rabid anti-Semites.
If I remember right, it looked like this:
- Antiochus Epiphanes
- Herod the Great
- Adolf Hitler
- Yasser Arafat
- Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
I couldn’t help but notice a similarity. Though there were/are many anti-Semites, these guys took it to an extreme. They didn’t just want to kill Jews, they wanted to somehow erase the memory of their existence from the earth.
Like it never even happened.
That kind of hatred is Satanic. I didn’t think much more about it until one morning at around 3 AM, my eyes popped open with the thought that they may be connected by blood.
So started a three-year journey that ended in “Antichrist: The Search for Amalek”.
In early 2017, a few friends convinced me to update and revise the book. Not because it was a best seller (it was not) but because of the advent of new terror for Israel.
I came to realize that I had written a book that stepped on almost everyone’s toes.
Christian pastors refused the book because of rabbinic references, Jewish rabbis refused it because the Amalek problem is solved by Jesus upon His second coming, and secular people did not care about either one.”
Our 2018 edition sales did worse, but after observing the bloodlines of new and more vicious terror groups and politicians, I have never been more convinced of the book’s premise that a perpetual enemy of Jacob (Israel) exists in his brother Esau.
- That Esau’s descendants have returned to the land as prophesied by Malachi 1:4 to take back the squandered birthright of their forefather.
- That the great tribulation is a time of trouble for Jacob (Jeremiah 30:7) and only the blood of Esau can be more jealous of Jacob (Genesis 27:41).
- That a descendant of the most evil one of Esau’s line, Amalek (Exodus 17:16), of mixed Jewish and Gentile blood, would become the most evil man in history and that God will provide a new and better Savior for such a time as this (Isaiah 63:1-3; Obadiah 1:18; Esther 4:14).
- That the final Purim celebration victory will be in a temple in Jerusalem (Revelation 11:1-2).
