Purim Decree 2023
Inspired by the Global Watch Community and a few women from Israel. Written by Sandra Teplinsky.
In the unity of one accord, we, a remnant of the people of YHVH who worship Him in Spirit and Truth through Messiah Yeshua, enter heaven’s gates with thanksgiving and its courts with praise.
We thank You, Sovereign and Omnipotent Lord God, for Your mercy by which we have access to the judicial realms of heaven. We exalt You and all Your ways, which are perfect and good, holy and loving, just and true. We bless and magnify the Name of YHVH.
We acknowledge our standing before You, Lord God, is solely by the Blood of Yeshua (1 John 1:7). In His Name and in the authority He has stewarded to us, we come boldly before Your throne of grace (Matthew 16:19, Luke 10:19, Ephesians 2:6, Hebrews 4:16). As we do, we also humble ourselves according to 2 Chronicles 7:13-14. We sincerely confess and repent of our wicked ways and those of our people. According to Your Word, we trust You to hear from heaven, forgive us and heal our land (1 John 2:1).
On this 15 th day of Adar, we present to You the living and immutable truth of Your Word, particularly as set forth in the scroll of Esther. We ask You to grant us access to any time gates or heavenly portals aligning with events occurring in ancient Persia under the reign of King Ahasuerus; specifically: (1) the unsummoned approach of Hadassah, also known as Queen Esther, to said king; (2) the extension of his favor due to the extension of Your favor; and (3) his instruction to Esther to write various decrees designed to spare the lives of her people (Esther 5:1-3, 8:8).
Your Highest Majesty, “if it please the King, if You regard us with favor, if You determine it is the right thing to do, and if You are pleased with us, let a decree be written overruling the dispatches of [Your and our enemies] devised to destroy [Your people and the full inheritance of Your Son Yeshua] in all the King’s provinces throughout the earth. For how can [You and we] bear to see disaster fall on [our] people?” (Esther 8:5-6)
Specifically, we petition for what You, our King have already declared and decreed, that such declarations and decrees, now be executed at this time by Your Spirit, together with the unified agreement of Your followers gathered today and others whom You would appoint, at according to Your thoughts and ways:
Isaiah 61:1-3 NKJV “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me [King Yeshua], Because the Lord has anointed Me [Him]to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me [Him] to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
Isaiah 25:5-9 NIV “YHVH, You silence the uproar of foreigners; as heat is reduced by the shadow of a cloud, so the song of the ruthless is stilled. On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine—the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain He will destroy the shroud [thick covering] that enfolds [is cast over] all peoples, the sheet [veil] that covers [is spread over] all nations; He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; He will remove His people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken. In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in Him, and He saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in Him; let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”
2 Corinthians 3:14-17 (Amplified) [But the Israelites’] minds were grown hard and calloused [they had become dull and had lost the power of understanding], for until this present day, when the Old Testament is being read, the same veil [as Moses placed over his face] still lies on their hearts, not being lifted to reveal that in Messiah it is made void and done away with. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies upon their minds and hearts. But whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away.”
We put before You, Your Honor, the reality that larger numbers of Jewish people, especially in Israel, are turning to You in recent days and years. For each person turning to You, let now the veil be stripped off and removed by the power of the Blood and Name of Yeshua. For each person turning to You, let now God arise to scatter His enemies from that person and their household. For each person turning to You, let now a spirit of grace and supplication be poured out on them and their household. Let now a mourning arise for revelation of Messiah and a turning toward Yeshua.
CONCLUSION FOR ALL:
In conclusion, we petition You because we earnestly seek that which is expressed in Your Word concerning (1) the establishment of Your throne and kingdom rule in Jerusalem, Israel and all the earth according to Your timing thereof; and (2) the full inheritance of Messiah Yeshua, including a bride from Israel and the nations, which requires a future, substantially greater surrender to Him from Israel and the nations, also known as a coming, global harvest of souls. We thank and praise You for Your anticipated righteous determination and execution of this petition. In the Name of Messiah Yeshua, let Your kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven in all these matters. May the will of YHVH be done on earth, in this place, as it is in heaven. Blessed be Your glorious name, which You have placed here forever.
Respectfully submitted with gratitude,
These assembled children of God
