The History and the Story of Purim rightly precedes The Story of Passover. There are some interesting parallels to the story of Esther in Media Persia and the struggle in the Ukraine. Ss we remember to celebrate the escape from a near Holocaust the world is grip by the fear of a Third World War. Unthinkable!? Like the Book of Esther a Jewish President in the Ukraine portrays a modern version of "For Such A Time As This!" The Ukraine is not Israel but the lessons are the same...God remains our only Hope! We have to remember the words of our Messiah: "My Kingdom is not of this world...&...I have overcome the world!"
