“Anti-Semitism is a virus that survives by mutating.” – Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the name ‘United Nations’ for the allied countries fighting together against the National Socialist Workers Party (Nazi) and their totalitarian axis powers. Speaking on Justice for War Crimes, March 24, 1944, Roosevelt explained1 that the original goal of the United Nations involved protecting the Jews:

"In one of the blackest crimes of all history - begun by the Nazis...the wholesale systematic murder of the Jews of Europe goes on unabated...Hundreds of thousands of Jews...are now threatened with annihilation as Hitler's forces descend...The United Nations have made it clear that they will pursue the guilty...All who knowingly take part in the deportation of Jews to their death...are equally guilty with the executioner...The United Nations are fighting to make a world in which tyranny and aggression cannot exist."

That goal is a long way from the purposes of today’s United Nations that spends most of its efforts in denigrating Israel. Instead of being an organization that protects Jews, the UN has been hijacked by mostly totalitarian powers that hate Israel and seek its destruction. For example, there have been seventy-seven UN resolutions against Israel from 1955-2013 and only one against ‘Palestine’ despite the unceasing terror attacks by ‘Palestinians’ against Israeli civilians. UN Watch2 exposed this flagrant bias.

A Secret Allegory of the L-rd’s Return

The Jewish populace generally celebrates Purim with the flair of Mardi Gras; that is, with masks and costumes and drinking. Masking one’s appearance is a feature of this holiday that reveals the underlying theme of the Book of Esther, hester panim, concealment of the L-rd’s countenance. G-d declared (Deuteronomy 31:16-18) that if His people Israel forsook Him, He would hide His face from them. This period of exile known as the intertestmental period was such a time. Yet, G-d appears throughout the story in the form of apparent coincidences.

G-d’s name is never mentioned in the Book of Esther, but His name (Jehovah/Yahweh) formed by the four Hebrew letters: yod, hey, vav, hey appears four times in the form of an acrostic. In fact, three ancient manuscripts are known in which the acrostic letters are written larger than the others so that they stand out boldly.

As Purim approaches, it is worthwhile to review this historic narrative, which recounts how the supernatural force of G-d protects Israel even when she is not in G-d’s favor. The story takes place while the Jews were in galut (exile) from Israel for their rebellion, during the period known to Christendom as the intertestmental period: the 400 years between Malachi, the last prophet of the Old Testament, and John the Baptist, the first prophet of the New Testament. The victorious outcome of this popular legend resulted in the establishment of a new feast, the Feast of Purim, which the rabbis declare will survive all other feasts because it encompasses them all. It is, in truth, a secret allegory of the L-rd’s return.

A Word From The Land Down Under PDF Print E-mail

Brother Leo lives in a beachfront community in Australia where they have a 'floating' population so that his witnessing tracts are always 'fresh'. He has numerous opportunities to speak to the many young backpackers from around the world as they wait for their next coaches to take them along their way. Brother Leo reflects on the fact that attitudes are changing among those he encounters. While some are still receptive to the Light of G-d's Word many are no longer interested and turn down the tracts offered them. He witnesses locally every morning to those to whom the L-rd guides him and the then brings them before the L-rd afterwards in prayer. 

As a result of his regular, determined witness, the L-rd has opened many doors to Brother Leo. His ministry always bears fruit in the hearts of those that receive him. He says his greatest joy is that he will be able to see all those to whom he has witnessed rejoicing in the L-rd forever and ever [in Eternity].
