Purim is one of those Holidays that like Christmas has some significance and meaning to it depending on what and how you apply meaning to it. “Some” scholars see Messiah in it, though it is not one of the Seven Feast indicated as unto “the Lord”.
However, even as there are many types and shadows that are not directly indicative of Jesus, Purim certainly has meanings as applied below. “Adding Meaning” as opposed to clear definitive “revelation” of Jesus, we will not do. Yet we post the perspective for those who want to examine the claims.
The Seven Feasts are Proven Prophetic.
Channukah like Christmas is proven false by history and the Bible. But ‘traditions’ are added to “make” those two Holidays: “Special”.
As such we honor them for what they are: Holidays but not Prophetic from God Almighty set to reveal Jesus.
The same holds true for many Armenian, Catholic, Russian Orthodox, Lutheran, Israeli, Orthodox Jewish, and quasi cultural Holiday.
“They are good, not necessarily godly”
The same is true for Purim as it is a time of drunkenness, parties, gambling and illegal behavior.
Below is an “Interpretation” often labeled and Tendentialism
The story of Purim is one of many episodes in God’s dealings with His people.
The Jews were saved physically at this point in their history. The time of their full salvation and the complete fulfillment of God’s prophecies given to Abraham was drawing nigh.
It happened five hundred years later with the coming of adon Yeshua HaMashiach –the Lord Jesus, the Messiah.
Jesus is the greater Mordecai. Condemned to die for His people, Jesus the Messiah became the supreme sacrifice of atonement for the sins of Jew and Gentile alike.
In Him were truly fulfilled the prophecies of old, “…All the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him” (Genesis 18:18).
Today we see millions of people in all parts of the earth who have received these blessings through Abraham’s seed, the Messiah, flesh of our flesh and bone of our bone.
Mordecai and Esther knew for certain that Haman’s decree was not an accident of history, but a consequence of failings within the Jewish people. That is why Mordecai’s response was “[He] clothed himself in sackcloth and ashes and went out into the midst of the City.”
He turned to repentance, and urged the rest of the Jews to do likewise. Only then did he send Esther “to come to the King and entreat him and plead with him for her people.” Esther was also repentant. She asked Mordecai to “Go and gather all the Jews . . . and they should fast for me, and neither eat nor drink for three days and nights.” In addition, Esther included herself: “I also . . . will fast likewise.”
Just as the Jews were rescued, we are redeemed by our Righteous Messiah. True and complete redemption lies in our own hands, as we must turn to God in complete repentance.
Purim Symbols Christ
The picture of the three-day resurrection is shown. Esther fasted for three days, and on the third day she arose to go before the king.
The Christian New Life
The story of Esther is a depiction of a Christian’s walk in a new life. Exposing Haman is symbolic of exposing sin. The new decree triumphs. The old decree symbolizes Jesus triumphing over the law of sin and death. Once Haman (sin, flesh) was put to death, Mordecai (Holy Spirit) is given unlimited command.
The Jews were again delivered on the seventeenth of Nisan—Firstfruits—the same day that deliverance for the Israelites in Egypt began, and the same day Jesus arose!
