As we approach the introduction of Esther into this story, don't lose sight that this book is a Megillah, a Jewish scroll given to explain away a problem that the Jews were facing after their captivity.  The events of this book simply are not backed up by any historical writer or record, and thus it must have been placed in our Bibles for another reason.   

Paul the Apostle of Jesus Christ warned us in First Corinthians 10:11 , 12; "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." [11] "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." [12] Every story from Genesis 1:1 to the end of the Old Testament is there to warn Christians as to how it shall be in the time of the end.  This story like all the other writings are given to assist in our understanding of the events of this final generation of this earth age of flesh man.   

As we read in the introduction and first chapter, the actions of King Ahasuerus of the Medes in this story was about a drunken old man who had lost control of his mind and kingdom.  His six month drunken binge ended with a seven day drunken party that included all the leaders of his day.  When he was out of control, and in a drunken state of mind, he allowed these Kenites around him to create a new set of laws.  The purpose of those laws were to take away the rights and dignity of Queen Vashti, the one virtuous person in this king' life and the kingdom.  Vashti refuse to allow her self to be presented as a whore before all those drunken men, by being paraded in public, at this drunken event.

Most clergy today would try to present Queen Vashti in a bad light. Remember there was a movement going on by these Kenite men close to the king that were trying to get Vashti and her principles removed by law.  In itís place the king's order by law, that they would control the activity and life style of their wives and the ladies of the kingdom.  In those words God's Sacred name is written five times in the acrostic form within this book, it should alert us that there is something hidden in this story that Christians should pay close attention to.   

Applying this story to the events and happenings of these end times, King Ahasuerus represents the global government of today.  Then, of course, Queen Vashti the wife, and Esther the virgin, represent the spiritual or religious controls or movements of our day.  The wife of the king was dethroned because of her virtue, while the virgin becomes the queen by reason that she does what the king and these Kenite men behind the scene desire and wants her to do.  Esther the virgin's power is given only when she submits to these behind the scene princes, and tries to please the king or global government at all cost.  

As you consider this second chapter, fix in your mind that this is a parable story, to enlighten us of something else that is taking place in our generation today.  Remember that what appears to be truth, and virtuous, turns out of be whorish activity, while those who remain true to their convictions are made out to be wicked.  It is important that you understand exactly what a Kenite is; where they came from; and what their intent is, or you will not understand what is happening here in the book of Esther.  At the close of this chapter, we will inject a simple study of the Kenites, for these are the ones that took control of the Levitical priest hood while the House of Judah was in Captivity in Babylon .  

The power of the Kenites lies in their ability to enter into a group and control that group of people because their true identity is hidden from the members of that group,  whether it is in your church, your community, or the government.  As we look at King Ahasuerus, we see a man that appears to be the king of the world power, yet he is just a simple old man that likes to be manipulated by those that hang around him.  They set him up to make foolish statements in his weaker moments, then play him for a fool when he tries to do what is right later.  Remember that even more so today, than in this story of Esther, those that rule and are in the foreground of government are controlled by other forces that are like Mordecai, this so called simple man at the gate.  It is at the gate of the city where the judgments are made, and where those that rule make their decisions.          

Esther 2:1    "After these things, when the wrath of king Ahasuerus was appeased, he remembered Vashti, and what she had done, and what was decreed against her."  

After the party was over, and the king was sober in mind, he woke up to the fact that in his drunken state, he tried to get Vashti to present herself as a whore to the other drunks at the party and she refused.  These Kenite controllers behind the king had tricked him into removing Vashti as Queen by law, setting the reason for this action, as the problem of controlling their wives back home.  

Now put this in a religious sense, the women, Vashti and Esther will represent religious faiths, people or denominations.  The king represents governmental authority, such as some judge that oversteps his authority to make laws that go directly against those religious freedoms allowed in that government by law.  The king was in a drunken perverted state of mind, just as that judge that allows same sex marriages, and legalizing Sodomy in our land.  In that perverted state of mind he makes his decree, then all the papers and other judges in the land agree with him as if it was the law of the land.  These Kenites tricked the king to pervert his wife at a time when he was not in control of his mind.  Then later when he was clear headed, they made him hold to those vain utterances he made when he was out of control.   

This trick of Satan is used daily in merchandising, when the salesman take the customer out to lunch, and they start drinking to the point where the customer is not in control of his thinking.  Then the papers are signed, and in the courts that agreement stands.       

Esther 2:2   "Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him,  "Let there be fair young virgins sought for the king:"  

Notice first of all that it is the "king's servants that ministered unto him," that are making the decision as to what to do with queen Vashti.  The "king's servants" are the ones that are over the people, and enforce the laws of the land, as they collect the taxes and direct the king's actions.  It is no different today, than what we are reading here in this story of Esther.  They are looking for someone that they can put in queen Vashti place, someone that can be controlled, and that will do what Vashti refuse to do: they go along with those drunken servants of the king.    

Esther  2:3   "And let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the fair young virgins unto Shushan the palace, to the house of the women, unto the custody of Hege the king's chamberlain, keeper of the women; and let their things for purification be given them:"

Notice how they present the action that the king must take, "Let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom."   Two thing to point out here, first is that it will be the men behind the scene that select the "young virgins" that will be brought to Shushan.  Then it will be the Eunuchs, "chamberlins" that will oversee exactly what they can and can not do.  This story line probably came from the book of Daniel, for this is exactly what those Kenites in Daniel 6 tried to do.   

Daniel 6:4   "Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him."

These are the same men from the book of Esther, for the time frame is the same, the leaders of all the providences were there, and Vashti like Daniel refuse to take part in the activity of that one world order that was making these Kenites up set.  Daniel would not play the Kenites game, nor would Vashti. 

Daniel 6:5-6   "Then said these men, "We shall not fine any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God."  [5]  "Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him,  "King Darius, live for ever." [5]

The king throws a big drunken party at the United Nations Building, of that day, and these Kenites that are running that would body are mad at Daniel because he will not allow their merchandising tricks and unfair trade laws to pass over his desk untaxed.  That was Daniels job, collecting taxes.  He would not allow things like dummy corporations to be set up under the table, like Enron deals, and so on, without making their actions accountable for, and these men wanted Daniel removed.  Vashti also probably was a virtuous woman, and had much influence on the king, and they wanted her removed.  What better way that to make this respectable woman out to be a whore, and replace her with another Kenite without principle, that would play their game.   

Daniel 6: 7, 8, 9   "All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellers, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions. [7] Now , O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it may be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not." [8] "Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.  [9]

We are starting to see a pattern here as to how these Kenites work behind the scene, for what happened in the book of Daniel is reality, it is what really happened when the Kenites plotted to remove Daniel from office, and out of their business practices.  The book of Esther on the other hand is an attack on the one good influence that had a hold on the king, his wife that would not whore herself in public before these men that are trying to take control of this world wide governmental system.  Remember that this is all an example of our generation will be facing in these end times.   

So what are we talking about here in the book of Esther?  The king was tricked into making a statement about his own wife in a weaker state of drunkenness.  Then those Kenite men that were trying to bring down the sitting queen, the religious order that was set in place that brought virtue to this world order, took those utterances of the king and moved them into reality and law.  Remember the eunuch is one that has allowed himself to be neither male nor female by an operation, thus he appears not to be aggressive on either side.  Yet in his state of mind, he fulfills the orders of those that control him.  Are we talking here about men, women, and Eunuchs?  No we are talking about global governments of the end times; those that appear to be in power over that government; and the true hidden powers that really control that global society.  Remember this is a Megillath, a Jewish and Kenite story to explain what is about to happen in the time of the end.  We are living in this time, and must try to make some sense of it.          

Esther 2:4   "And let the maiden which pleaseth the king be queen instead of Vashti."  And the thing pleased the king; and he did so."  

Many things are used to please the king or our political leaders today, and they will sell their souls to stay in office and keep their political power.  Today the promise of financial support and good press articles keep many of our political leaders pleased by what these Kenites present to them.  Here it was the promise of some beautiful young virgin that would become a play thing for the king.   

Look around you and see if this holds true today, is there a virgin that has become a play thing for some powerful political leader.  When it was about to bring his term to an end, look at all the things that were done and passed that he had to overlook for the sake of good press, just to keep him in office.  Our nation will never be the same because of some of those laws that were tacked on to other bills that slid through congress while the out of control leader was trying to save his presidency.  It took the entire Kenite press system, as well as all the other Kenite systems of the day to keep him in office.  These hidden ones set the president up, then took him down, and they rebuilt his reputation after they got what they wanted.     

Again looking at the book of Esther, if Vashti represented virture and God's way, take a good look at how all the filth of Sodomy, child molestation, abortion, and all the other troubles of our land have replaced the stabilizing laws of God and the family that once existed.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that some hidden hand is moving this global society and its four hidden dynasties into a satanic order in this global society.  Will it stop and change?  If you know the prophetic events of the end times, you will see that what is going on today is exactly what God warned his Elect and those "with the seal of God in their foreheads."  

Daniel 6:10, 11   "Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime." [10] "Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God."  [11]  

This is exactly how these Kenites work, for they knew what Daniel would do before they ever tricked the king into signing his law.  Once the law was signed, it did not change this man of God one bit, for he continued in prayer and giving thanks to our heavenly Father just "as he did aforetime".  In the book of Esther those Kenite men in leadership knew exactly what Vashti would do when they tried to make a whore out of her. 

We are going to see things changing rapidly, even more so than the past, and this will take away your right to worship and present Jesus Christ to those around you.  Expect it, for God has warned us of this in Amos 8:11, 12  

Amos 8:11, 12   "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:" [11]  "And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it." [12]   

The reason I put this warning to you here, is that God has warned us that He will allow these Kenites to do exactly what they are going to do, for it is that great test that will come upon the whole earth in our end generation.  Those of God's elect will know the truth, because they have studied to know the truth, and placed it in their mind. This world global system with all its modern equipment and fast updated systems will smother you with lies and half truths to the point that you will accept lies as the truth, and look at the righteous person with contempt.  Its coming, my friend, and whether you seek comfort in the eastern religious patterns and thoughts, or here in North America , you will simply not find the truth.  You will run to and fro to every church house, synagogue, mosque, or temple and the truth will not be there.   

Revelation  9:4  "And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads."

This forth verse is after the fifth trumpet of Revelation has sounded, and Satan and his fallen angels have been turned loose on the earth to have their way with men and women in their flesh bodies.   This book of Esther is part of that warning to God's elect, and becomes part of the seal of God that we should place in our minds to protect us from Satan's lies and spiritual attacks.  You are living in the end times, so expect these things to happen.  They are part of God's Word, and YHVH our Heavenly Father has given us His acrostics to let us know things here are just not right.          

Esther 2:5   "Now in Shushan the palace there was a certain Jew, whose name was Mordecai, the son of Jair, the son of Shimei, the son of Kish, a Benjamite;"

This word Mordecai has two meanings in the Hebrew, one means "a little man", while the other, "a worshipper of Mars".  First of all, Mordecai was not a Benjamiite, but for the story sake, they made him a "Benjamite".  Mordecai was a man that started secrets, and tried to control things at the top, from his hidden location.  So why would they say he was of Benjamin? 

Remember when Solomon started to build the Temple , he want to the king of Hamath, King Hiram, to get the men and materials for the job.  Over a hundred thousand of these Kenite workmen came pouring into Jerusalem and the surrounding areas with their families.  When the project was over, they all stayed.  In fact Solomon set up a joint partnership with Hiram, and they went into the shipping business, building and shipping around that know world. 

When Solomon died, the nation of Israel was split into two separate nations, and four generations later King Omri over the northern House of Israel married into the Kenite line, with the daughter of King Ethbaal of Tyre , Hamath.  Queen Jezebel moved immediately to remove God from the kingdom and brought in her prophets of Baal.  We know from I Kings 16:31 that King Omri turned his kingdom over to the Kenites Baal worship. 

I Kings 16:31   "And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal King of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him."

A generation later another marriage between the children of king of the house of Judah and the house of Israel brought the Kenites blood directly into the kingship of the house of Judah , of which Baal never left.  By the coming out of captivity from Babylon some five hundred years later, these Kenites had completely taken over the priesthood of the Levitical priest, to where Ezra tells us that of the over 280 Priest returning to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple and worship, there was not one Levite amongst them. 

Ezra  8:15    "And I gathered them together to the river that runneth to Ahava: and there abode we in tents three days: and I viewed the People, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi."   

Here 43,000 people were going back to reestablish Jerusalem and the Temple and not one of them was of the tribe of Levi.  The entire priesthood had been taken over by these Orientals, Kenites that came from Hamath, that were the priests.  These are the very people that were sitting in the seat of Moses during the time of Christ, and we are discussing in this story of the Book of Esther.     

When we take a look at the lineage of Mordecai, we see Jair's presence in the Scripture was back in the days of Joshua and the book of Judges.  Shimei was the man that ran along side of David's carriage as he was fleeing from Absolom for his life, and this pervert ran along side of David cursing him when David was at his weakest state.  Kish was a Levite in Scriptures, and Mordecai was presenting himself as a Benjamite, of course the Benjamites were made up of the Fatherís side of the tribe of Benjamin, and the mother's side, the tribe of Judah .  This is confirmed from Judges 19-21.  So like most Kenites, you take the names that you expect will cause the effect you hope to reach.   

It is interesting that the Talmud, the bible of the Jews, says that God didn't kill David because He knew that Esther and Mordecai was going to come forth through his seed.  Yet at the same time it lists here that Shimei, the very one that mocked David when he was on the run from Absolom was Shimei.  We know this to be a lie from our Holy Scriptures in the King James Bible, for it was the True Christ child, our Lord Jesus Christ that would come forth from the seed of David.  Luke 3:23-31 proves this.  

Esther 2:6   "Who had been carried away from Jerusalem with the captivity which had been carried away with Jeconiah king of Judah , whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away."

Jeconiah's name had been changed by God to Jehoiachin, as is pointed out in Jeremiah 52, and it was in the year 497 B.C. that this king went into Captivity.  King Jehoiachin was put in prison and stayed there for thirty seven years of captivity.  Then he was released to sit at the table of the king.  In this sixth verse it states clearly that Mordecai was taken captive.  There were two periods when the Babylonians took captive people of the royal family of Judah , and this would be the first time.  It is strange that Mordecai was not mentioned with Daniel, Nehamiah, Ezra, and the rest of the royal family if he were so important in the eyes of God.  We know why he wasn't, for this is a story to wake us up to another point of interest.       

Esther 2:7   "And he brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle's daughter: for she had neither father nor mother, and the maid was fair and beautiful; whom Mordecai, when her father and mother were dead, took for his own daughter."

The word "Esther" means "star"; But Rabbi Yehudah derives it from "Sather" meaning "to hide"; because she was suppose to have been hid in her tender years in her guardians house.  Within the name "Judas" should ring a bell that we are talking about Kenites here.  At the close of this chapter we will discuss who these Kenites are and where they came from. 

So far Mordecai was with the royal family of Judah , he also would have to have been a Eunuch like the rest of the men,  that was a condition also for even visiting the houses that the women were kept in, and where this book leads us to believe that Mordecai went to.  He stood in the king's house, he stood in the King's gate, and had favor with the rest of the Eunuchs.   

Esther 2:8   "So it came to pass, when the king's commandment and his decree was heard, and when many maidens were gathered together unto Shushan the palace, to the custody of Hegai, that Esther was brought also unto the king's house, to the custody of Hegai, keeper of the women."

This fair maiden, Esther even pleased the Eunuchs when they were around here.  Stop for a moment and consider what the Christian church world of today is becoming to Sodomites, and all the rest of religious.  Priests are overstepping their bounds with children, and much of the church world turns their head to it.  The strict guidelines for priests and preachers are being lowered and protected for the sake of the getting along.  The things that God's Words speaks out against are being dropped from their bylaws and guidelines, for the sake of belonging to this new world global religion. 

When we are talking about women here, we are talking about religions, spiritual thought and personal convictions.  The Eunuch are those men and their societies that are striving for global control at all cost.  To get along with those men that remain hidden as they try to tighten their control over this global government, you have to conform to their one world religious order, the World Council of Churches.       

Esther  2:9   "And the maiden pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily gave her things for purification, with such things as belonged to her, and seven maidens, which were meet to be given her, out of the king's house: and he preferred her and her maids unto the best place of the house of the women."

When Esther was brought before this chief Eunuch, she tried here best to please him.  This eunuch was one that was in a position of authority, and could obtain what ever was necessary for reaching his end purpose.  The purification spoken of here is "tamruwq" in the Hebrew text; it means, both fumery for bath, and cleansers to cleanse.  It scrubs out the old flesh and presents this maiden in the preferred status before the king.  Notice that only she was treated in this manner at the first, so she became the example to the other maidens as to how they should lock and perform in the presence of the king. 

Notice the purification that the church at large is going through today, it's changing as to what is acceptable and not.  The things of the world are made acceptable, while the perversions that God's Word clearly is against is not acceptable in todays world.  Sort of like Esther, they are being groomed with fumery, and bathed in this global society so that all people of the world will feel right at home sitting in the church house and taking part in its activities.      

Esther 2:10    "Esther had not shewed her People nor her kindred: for Mordecai had charged her that she should not shew it."

Just like the four Kenite hidden dynasties of today, they are doing their extensive work under the guise of many lies and distortions, before they come to the public with programs.  When they do, the law will be hidden deep under laws that are acceptable at the beginning, and when the time is right, they will be the law of the land.  It's happening right under you nose and you are not aware of it.  Esther, this global religious order within the global society is hiding her true identity from view, and those Kenites in control of her remain hidden until all the laws of the new world order, and the enforcement of it are safely in place.  No, you can't see this Esther, nor her kindred, the Kenite handlers, for that would make many people upset and unable to buy what she is selling.    

Esther 2:11    "And Mordecai walked every day before the court of the women's house, to know how Esther did, and what should become of her."

In the fact that Mordecai walked every day in the court of the women's house meant he was part of that woman's house; a eunuch.  You know that he was in constant communication as to the direction and treatment that this whore church was taking as she was being set up to be presented to the king and the world.

If this was to have taken place in the old Babylon , all this would prove that these events must have taken place before the emancipation made by Cyrus, the son of Astyages, recorded in Ezra 1.  No such secrecacy would have been necessary after that date, thus, it would have taken place right under Daniel's nose, there in the palace of Shushan , without his knowledge or comment when it happened.  In other words, this would lead us to believe that Cyrus then was Esther's son, which goes completely against historical record. 

Esther 2:12   "Now when every maid's turn was come to go in to king Auasuerus, after that she had been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women;)"

So if Esther was 120 years old when she was brought into the King's house of his ladies, she would be 121 years old now.  She was all cleaned up, perfumed, and is now ready for this beauty queen contest. 

By the use of "months" or moons, should warn us that this is dealing with things of Satan and the devil.  Dates dealing with the sun and days deal with God's people, and God's set times.  Six periods of time dealing with oil of myrrh, and six months or periods of time dealing with sweet odors, and other things to make what is presented acceptable both to the king or global government. 

When the wise men of Jesus day brought gifts to the Christ child, they brought gold, frankincense and myrrh. [Matthew 2:11]  There is no mention as to how many men came, but because there were three different treasures, that there must have been three wise men.  These treasures were things of value, for the sake of providing supplies for the Mother Mary and the Christ childís immediate needs.  This is what this story of Esther needs, something to a sense of value to it.       

Esther 2:13    "Then thus came every maiden unto the king; whatsoever she desired was given her to go with her out of the house of the women unto the king's house."

Esther came first and set the stage for the others to follow.  The king was pleased with Esther, yet each of the others were allowed to show their wears and desires to the king, and the king rewarded them for it.

In this new world order, there was a church denomination that made a stand against changing its bylaws and beliefs, and becoming a charter member.  Yet as I watch it through the years, one Christmas program was presented to the world by this church, and at the end it was said that it was sponsored by the World Council of Churches.  I sensed that there was something different in that program, and then I knew why.  That church had gone through the process, just as these virgin maidens had, and cleansed themselves, and perfumed themselves up to be accepted with in that religious global society.  

Esther 2:14   "In the evening she went, and on the morning she returned into the second house of the women, to the custody of Shaashgaz, the king's chamberlain, which kept the concubines: she came in unto the king no more, except the king delighted in her, and that she were called by name."

Letís take a closer look at what this is saying here.  When each of these maiden left the first house of the king, and presented themselves before the king; when they were finished with their time with the king, they would be sent to another house, where they would not be released again.  So what ever was to be done before the king to convince his that you are his queen, you had to do it on that first trip and appearance before the king.  There were no second chances.  Once you were done with the king old Shaashgaz, meaning "keeper of the beautiful", took you, you became a prisoner of the kingís chambers.   Those maidens became concubines, sexual toys of the king from then on; not queens.  

Esther 2:15   "Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king's chamberlain, which kept the concubines: she came in unto the king no more, except the king delighted in her, and that she were called by name."

Again, this was a one time affair, to be selected or rejected by sight and what you said when in the presence of the king.  You make the complete commitment, or you end up one of the concubines of the king with all the other fair maidens of the world.  Remember this was supposed to be a world wide government in the story, and representing the one world government in the final generation.   

Esther 2:16   "So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign."

Esther 2:17   "And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti."

With the end of this world wide beautiful contest where the finest and most beautiful woman in all the earth becomes world queen, and there is not one record of it any wheres in historical writings, outside this book of Esther.  I think by now we know why; because it is a story to teach us a lesson as to what to watch out for in these end times.  Esther did what was necessary to get her job, to find favor with those it was necessary to, for the advancement of her goals.  She did more to find favor than all the other virgins that were in contest against her, and she won. 

Sounds like the end of a football gave, or a political campaign, the victory came, and all the glory goes to the victor.  The losers go to the king's second house, and the winner takes the crown of glory.  Fairy tale or not, it is the reality of today; you remember those that win, but the looser of that close contest is forgotten, and this is why it becomes strange that there is not one record of this outside of this book of Esther.    

Esther  2:18   "Then the king made a great feast unto all his princes and his servants, even Esther's feast; and he made a release to the provinces, and gave gifts, according to the state of the king."

This sounds like the Super Bowl or the World Series in Baseball, for every part of the competition is plastered all over the press around the world.  So now we have another feast, and Esther is the center of this feast.  Remember that first feast, when Vashti would not present herself before these drunken men at their party?  Well Esther was more than willing to do what it took to become queen, and take the glory.  The only place where this event is ever recorded is in the Kenites own writings of their Talmud, and that set of instructions for them is kept secret, just as everything else that they say and do. 

Esther 2:19    "And when the virgins were gathered together the second time, then Mordecai sat in the king's gate."

This verse allows us to see the exact way that the Kenites work, in setting themselves in place to were they will be able to control things without be seen.  This is the perfect way that the Kenites work.  This is the exact way that the Nethinims, these strangers that took over the priesthood moved to take control.  It is at the "king's gate" where all judgments are made and the laws are passed, and that is where and why you will find them there and trying to manipulations, while remaining out of sight.  So it's time for Mordecai to make his move.      

Esther 2:20    "Esther had not yet shewed her kindred nor her People ; as Mordecai had charged her: for Esther did the commandment of Mordecai, like as when she was brought up with him."

Esther at this moment in time in this story is queen, the husband of King Ahasuerus, yet this woman was far worse than Vashti, for she is giving her obedience over to Mordecai, and her family, and not to her husband and the duties of her office.  Notice that what she did was in response to Mordecai, and her duty to Mordecai was to control the king for a foreigners command. 

Look at what our political leaders and the leaders of the religious groups are allowing to take place right under their noses.  The duties of their office and to the people they serve are given over to this hidden group of men that want to control every area of your life.  They will sell their vote to an special interest group for their endorsement, or for the commitment to give a certain amount of money to their campaign.  We see churches lowering their standards so as to not offend a sodomite, or person that practices something that goes against the Word of God.   It is becoming common place to hear lies from political leaders, and pledges that they have no intent to keep.  The only thing that matters to them is just as in Estherís case, that she win the contest, and represent her own interest.     

Esther 2:21   "In those days, while Mordecai sat in the king's gate, two of the king's chamberlains, Begthan and Teresh, of those which kept the door, were wroth, and sought to lay hand on the King Ahasuerus."

These two men that worked in the palace, keep control who went into see that king and were allowed the ear to the king were upset about something within the palace.  In the story line, the assumption was that they wanted to get the king out of office because of some of the stupid actions of the king, and his blind obedience to some of the handlers and advisors to the king.  Stop and look at the advice that many of our leaders are receiving, and what they do with that advice.

The New World Order is no longer new, for as we move deeper into the time of the fifth trumpet of the later days, everything about them is becoming history.  We see their actions of deceit, and the way they move their armies and control the press to destroy those that go against them, and bring to power those that serve their needs.  This book of Esther is truly a story for the events of our day.       

Esther 2:22    "And the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it unto Esther the queen; and Esther certified the king thereof in Mordecai's name."

This is exactly how the press of our day works,  first they have one reporter put out a story about some event or person, and then in the second report of that story it becomes true, merely to the fact that it was reported.  Then the next paper has it source that will remain hidden, so that that report can not be question for its truth.  Then it is given to some official who in turns acts on that report, and creates his laws to go against what ever is said to be bad, and it become law, and certified in the records. 

Mordecai sat and the gate and listen to the rumors of the day.  He tried to get something on the ones that were in the exact position that he wanted to be placed in himself.  When the right lies and distortions came forth, he picked up on it, and old itchy ears Esther took that report and certified it to the king, in Mordecai's name.  We are seeing the working of Satan and the Kenites here in this method of operation, and this is what the public of our day is happy to get, for it gives them something to talk about: right or wrong. 

Esther 2:23   "And when inquisition was made of the matter, it was found out; therefore they were both hanged on a tree; and it was written in the book of the chronicles before the king."

"It was found out", or as in 6:1, "On that night", in the Hebrew text reads; "The time for Divine action had come."  When the Devil and his people move to do what they are going to do in these end times, God will allow it.  Revelations 9:1 tells us that at when the fifth trump sounds, God is going to give the keys or authority to Satan to do what he will do.  The limits are set so that Satan and the Kenites can not kill the Christians of that day, but they will be allowed to deceive them into doing what ever Satan wants them to do.  If you rely on the other books of the Chronicles within the Bible or elsewhere, there is no record of this, so we have to assume that it is talking about a set of books created within this story for this story's sake. 

Before we go forward in this story to much, let's stop and try to understand exactly who these Kenites are that our Bible talks so much about.  These are those Nethinims that took over the Levitical priesthood when Judah was captive down in Babylon . 

   

KENITES

 

The word "Kenite" appears many times in the Scriptures. To most Christians, it is merely a reference to a nationality of people who have mingled with the Israelites throughout the ages.  Just who are these people and why do we know so little about them?  My hope is to bring these people to light.  Knowing where they came from and who they are, will help us better understand God's written Word about them.  


The word "Kenite" in ďStrongs Exhaustive ConcordanceĒ, is # 7014; "Qayan, Kah'-yin; Kajin, The name of the first child, also a place in Pal., and of an Oriental tribe: Cain, Kenite(s)."  Of course we know that the first child born into the Adamic race through Eve, was Cain.  We know that Jesus and all the apostles of Christ knew of them and wrote of them.   So if these started in the Garden of Eden, how did this race of people get through the flood of Noah's day, for we know they were living at that time? 

Jesus knew this group of people and addressed this matter of them in his letter to the church of Smyrna .  "I know thy works and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but of the Synagogue of Satan." Revelation 2:9. The Smyrna was a well tested group of Christians, but they had blasphemers in their midst.  So who are these blasphemers and what is the "synagogue of Satan". 

From the Genesis 2 and 3 that Satan is referred to as the Serpent and the sin in the Garden of Eden was not the eating of any apple.  Eve's sin was the sexual union with Satan the man.  No Satan was not in spirit form, but existed as a person, a man, just as those angelic men that entered this earth age from another realm came and had children by the daughters of men did, as recorded in Genesis 6:1-5.  When we refer to "seed" then, we are talking about the children or lineage by birth from Satan. 

The term Jew, as used in the Bible, has two meanings.  The one is by birth and by the offspring of Judah , the son of Israel ; and the other is merely a resident of the land of Judah , living in the land where the two tribes of the House of Judah claimed as their national land.   During the building of the temple of King Solomon 's day, over one hundred and eighty thousand of these men from the land of Hamath came to Jerusalem with their families to take part in the building of the Temple and the structures belonging to the government and the King.  They and their families never left, but lived separately to themselves.

In Strong's Concordance and Hebrew dictionary #7017 Identifies these Kenites another way.  "Qiyin, (1 Chronicles 2:55 ) kee-nee'; patron from #7014, a Kenite, or member of the tribe of Kajin-Kenite."   Lets go to I Chronicles 2:55 ; "And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites, These are the Kenites that came of Hamath, the father of the house of Rechab." 

This then addresses this same time frame that the Book of Esther was written about.  It tells us that the Kenites were the ones that took over the priesthood while the house of Judah was in captivity in Babylon .  These scribes kept the records, and took over the duties of the priests and Levites before the altar of God.  In fact when Ezra stopped and his way back to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple, there was not one Levite amongst them in that wagon train.  Forty three thousand and not one Levite was there.  Can you see how the priesthood was taken over from the coming out of captivity by these Kenites, these offspring of Satan through Cain.  Are they of Adam and Abraham and Jacob?  Of course not, they are of their father the devil. 

These people are the negative part of God's plan, and they were the ones prophesied in Genesis 3:15 to drive the nails into our Savior's feet.  God allowed to because they are fulfilling the prophecies of His Word.  These people have their own set of rules to guide them, and that is not the Bible.  This should help you understand why the Bibles are not welcome in Israel today, but your money is.  The absolutes of the Ten Commandments and God's laws given to Moses offend them as we see with in courts and schools today.

Knowing them, and identifying the Kenites and the way that they live and work is what the "parable of the fig tree" is all about.  Matthew 13:36-43 has Jesus explaining to His Disciples exactly who these tares are in His parable, "they are the children of the wicked one."  So who is the "wicked one"; that's right, Satan.   God has given or allowed them to live amongst the good wheat for a purpose, and the separation of them will be done at the close of this earth age.  If any Kenite repents and turns to our Lord Jesus Christ in faith, then He becomes a child of the Living God, Jesus the Christ.  Jesus knows exactly who they are, and what they do.  He even knew the murder in their heart that they had for Him as He walked amongst them.  When He faced them personally He even told the Kenite scribes and Pharisees who they were to their face. 

John  8:44    "Ye [Kenites] are of your father the devil [Satan], and the lusts of your father [Cain] ye will do.  He [Cain] was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him [Cain].  When he [Cain] speaketh a lie, he [Cain] speaketh of his own [father Satan]; for he [Satan] is a liar, and the father of it [lies]."

In Genesis 3:15 God is talking to Satan in his role as the Serpent and saying; "I will put enmity between thee (Satan) and the woman (Eve), and between thy seed (Cain and the Kenites) and her Seed (Our Lord Jesus Christ); It (Jesus Christ) shall bruise thy head, and thou (Kenites) shall bruise His (Christ's) heal."  This prophecy took place over two thousand years ago, when our Lord paid the price for your sins on the Cross.

It's no accident that the Kenites exist and that they are allowed to do what they do.  They get away with it because Christians and people allow it to happen to them.  In the time of the end, not only will the angels gather the Kenites for the iniquity that they do, but all of those that share in the iniquity with them will also take part in the lake of fire.  That's right, that is their end, as Jesus recorded and said in Matthew 13:41 , 42 "The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."

Revelation 20:14 and 15 tells us that this will happen after their time of testing God's people is over, and the great white throne judgment is finished.  One thing about these Kenites though, and Jeremiah tested them and found them to be faithful and true to the instructions that their father had given to them.  For this faithfulness, God made a promise to them, and in this promise it continues as long as this earth age of flesh man exists. 

Letís return to the book of Esther, and try to learn more of these methods of the Kenites that will be used in our day.
