US Elections 2008

“The “Esther” to Sarah Palin Connection” Written by The Hand of GOD?
Donny Newman

“And Esther obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her.” Friday, August 29, 08’, I learned that the Republican Nominee for President of the United States, John McCain, had picked the Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, to be his running mate for the position of the Vice President. The next morning, as I was walking to my place of Bible reading and prayer, the name “Esther” came to my mind. I was immediately caught up with the idea that Sarah Palin is a modern day “Esther”… for such a time as this. Over a very short course of time I began to see the following:

The Key Characters:
“HIS” Story of Esther
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The King Vashti Haman Mordecai Esther

US Presidential Election 2008
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The Voters Hillary Clinton Barak Hussein Obama John McCain Sarah Palin


The King to The Voters:

The one who gave appointments and positions of authority in the time of Esther was The King. In the US Electoral Process that authority and privilege has been bestowed upon the citizens who have the right to vote.


Vashti to Hillary Clinton:

Just as Queen Vashti was “rejected” by the King, so Hillary Clinton, the reigning matriarch of the Democratic Party and most certainly destined to be a contender for the Presidency was “rejected” by the Voters of her own party. Esther 1:9 Queen Vashti also made a feast for the women in the royal palace which belonged to King Ahasuerus. Hillary Clinton was heralded as the first woman to run for president, quickly drawing a large female constituency.

2 Esther 1:19 If it pleases the king, let a royal decree go out from him, and let it be recorded in the laws of the Persians and the Medes, so that it will not be altered, that Vashti shall come no more before King Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal position to another who is better than she. Hillary Clinton was officially “voted out” of contention for the nomination at the 08’ Democratic Convention. Obama is officially recognized and nominated by the Democratic Party. The very next day after Obama’s nomination…the young and beautiful Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, is announced as John McCain’s “choice” for Vice President.


Haman to Barak Hussein Obama:

Obama very quickly rises to the forefront of National Politics within the Democratic Party despite his lack of “any” governing experience and his ultra liberal voting record. No doubt an incredibly charming and winsome politician with an ability to raise record millions of dollars for campaign finances. Esther 3:1 After these things King Ahasuerus promoted Haman, the son of Hammedatha “the Agagite”, and advanced him and set his seat above all the princes who were with him. 2 And all the king’s servants who were within the king’s gate bowed and paid homage to Haman, for so the king had commanded concerning him. But Mordecai would not bow or pay homage. Haman, just like Obama, was very quickly promoted and advanced above all the princes and homage was paid to him. To understand who Haman is…one must know his heritage and that of being an “Agagite” Haman: “The Agagite” I Samuel 15:8 And he (King Saul) took Agag the king of the “Amalekites” alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword. Agag = "I will overtop" (Strong’s Concordance) Amalekites: Exodus 17:8-13 8 Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword… 14 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” 15 And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-LORD-Is-My-Banner; 16 for he said, “Because the LORD has sworn: the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” Why such a harsh judgment? Deuteronomy 25:17 “Remember what Amalek did to you on the way as you were coming out of Egypt, 18 how he met you on the way and attacked your rear ranks, all the stragglers at your rear, when you were tired and weary; and he did not fear God. Amalek: the “grandson of Esau” Genesis 36:12 Now Timna was the concubine of Eliphaz, Esau’s son, and she bore Amalek to Eliphaz. These were the sons of Adah, Esau’s wife.


Malachi 1: 2-3 …“Yet Jacob I have loved; 3 But Esau I have hated, So, Haman the Agagite is a descendant of Agag, who is a descendant of Amalek, who is a descendant of Esau. “None” of the scriptures above speak well neither of Haman nor of his lineage. Islam is of the Spirit of Amalek. Just as the spirit of Amalek has sought to exterminate the Jews so too has the spirit of Islam. Barak Hussein Obama is a Muslim of Islamic lineage and heritage. Barak Hussein Obama’s heritage in Islam is a fact. (For more read here, and here, and here.) That he is a Muslim can be heard from his own mouth. That he, Obama, now professes Christianity one must understand that his Christianity is based upon the teachings of the “Trinity United Church of Christ, Chicago”, Pastor Jeremiah Wright and that the accepted, promoted and practiced theology is that of “Black Liberation”. It is easy to see, from just a basic understanding of this type of Religion of Social Engineering, how the “The Emergent Church” and the “Social Gospel Movement” could so easily embrace and endorse Barak Obama’s “brand” of Christianity. Haman’s true motives revealed: Esther 3:8 Then Haman said to King Ahasuerus…9 If it pleases the king, let a decree be written that they (the Jews) be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work, to bring it into the king’s treasuries.” Early on in Obama’s campaign, it has been well reported that he, Obama, has said that he would sit down with the President of Iran and negotiate “without any” preconditions. This is the same President of Iran who has “repeatedly” sworn to “annihilate Israel”. Haman’s only recorded service to the king, in the Book of Esther, is that of very rapid self promotion; which is, also, all that can be said of Barak Hussein Obama.


Mordecai to John McCain:

Esther 2:21 In those days, (1) while Mordecai sat within the king’s gate, two of the king’s eunuchs, Bigthan and Teresh, doorkeepers, became furious and sought to lay hands on King Ahasuerus. 22 (2) So the matter became known to Mordecai, who told Queen Esther, and Esther informed the king in Mordecai’s name. 23 And when an inquiry was made into the matter, it was confirmed, and both were hanged on a gallows; and it was written in the book of the chronicles in the presence of the king. (1)Mordecai “sat” within the king’s gate. John McCain has had a very distinguished career as a US Representative and Senator for 26 years…“and has led the fight for reforming Washington, eliminating wasteful government spending, and strengthening our nation's armed forces.”

4 (2) Mordecai in the story of Esther had a reputation of “well documented” service and “sacrifice” to the King. For Mordecai no doubt placed his life in jeopardy by implicating Bigthan and Teresh for their conspiracy against the King. John McCain over the years has repeatedly taken on corruption within in his own party and against Corporate, Labor Union and other large entities risking his own political future. Mordecai “The Captive”: Esther 2:5 In Shushan the citadel there was a certain Jew whose name was Mordecai the son of Jair, the son of Shimei, the son of Kish, a Benjamite. 6 Kish had been carried away from Jerusalem with “the captives” who had been captured with Jeconiah king of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away. John McCain, the “Prisoner of War”: The Life of John McCain serving his country in a government role was preceded by his service as a Navy Pilot wherein he was taken as a “Prisoner of War” by the North Vietnamese Army. About John McCain The closing prayer given at the Republican National Convention was made by John McCain’s Pastor, Dan Yeary, pastor of North Phoenix Baptist Church. I was utterly taken when I heard these words come out of his mouth in this prayer which concluded the 2008 convention: …“And Lord, we ask Your very special blessings on our brother, John McCain. Father, we feel that he has been prepared for such a time as this.”… (Dan Yeary’s prayer) Esther 4:14-15 …relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”


Esther to Sarah Palin:

Esther 2:7 And Mordecai had brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle’s daughter, for she had neither father nor mother. The young woman was lovely and beautiful. When her father and mother died, Mordecai took her as his own daughter. Just as Esther was brought up in the house of Mordecai; Sarah Palin was brought up within the house/party of the Republicans, on a platform which is “Generally” opposed to Abortion and Homosexual Marriage. In other words, a platform based on The Bible which is the very exact opposite of the Democratic Platform which is “Always” Pro Abortion and Unopposed to and/or Supportive of Homosexual Marriage. Just as Esther was a “young woman…lovely and beautiful” so too is Sarah Palin! Just as Esther was groomed for her position to be queen so too was Sarah Palin groomed to be Vice President. Esther 2:12 Each young woman’s turn came to go in to King Ahasuerus after she had completed twelve months’ preparation, according to the regulations for the women, for thus were the days of their preparation apportioned: (1)six months with oil of myrrh, and (2)six months with perfumes and preparations for beautifying women.

5 “Prior to her election as governor, (1) Palin served two terms on the Wasilla City Council and (2) two terms as the Mayor of Wasilla.” About Sarah Palin Esther2:16 So, Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus, into his royal palace, in the tenth month, which is the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. The tenth month, Tebeth of the Biblical calendar, would correspond, on our Gregorian calendar, to late December/early January. “On December 4, 2006, Governor Sarah Palin made history as the first woman to become her state's chief executive.” About Sarah Palin A short period of time passed between these two verses and…Isn’t the next scripture rather Curious? Esther2:17 The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. Could it be that Sarah Palin’s destiny to be Vice President of the United States was fore ordained? Time will tell. Sarah Palin, reportedly, keeps Israel’s National Flag in her Governor’s Office. Esther 2:15…And Esther obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her. This scripture has most literally come to pass upon Sarah Palin!

The Progression of the Story in Esther to the Current Progression of the US Presidential election:
1. Esther hosted 2 wine banquets exclusively for the King and Haman. (1) Esther 5: 6 At the banquet of wine the king said to Esther, “What is your petition? (2) Esther 7: 2 And on the second day, at the banquet of wine, the king again said to Esther, “What is your petition… Sarah Palin will have 2 Nationally viewed events. The first one has already occurred and that was when she accepted the nomination to be Vice President on September 03, 08’, viewed by some 40 million. The second will be when she goes into debate with Joe Biden on October 02, 08’, which will more than likely even draw a larger audience. 2. Between the 2 wine banquets, Haman finds himself in the very awkward position of having to greatly honor Mordecai, the man whom he has set out to destroy. Obama’s acceptance speech was held with such self adulating pompous glory as to convey himself as one whose rightful place should be none other than in a Roman Pantheon. Esther 5:11 …and he sent and called for his friends and his wife Zeresh. 11 Then Haman told them of his great riches, the multitude of his children, everything in which the king had promoted him, and how he had advanced him above the officials and servants of the king.

6 Obama then learns who John McCain has chosen to be his Vice President the very next day after he, Obama, receives his nomination to be the Democratic candidate for President. Sarah Palin’s announcement to be John McCain’s Vice President “steals” away the headlines from Obama’s glorious pronouncements. Esther 6:11-12 …“Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights to honor!” 12 Afterward Mordecai went back to the king’s gate. But Haman hurried to his house, mourning and with his head covered.

US Senator Joe Lieberman: “The Jew Among Us”.
Esther 6:13 “If Mordecai, before whom you have begun to fall, is of Jewish descent, you will not prevail against him but will surely fall before him.” Joe Lieberman Key Note Speaker at the Republican National Convention September 02, 08’. (Joe Lieberman’s speech) …“And that brings me directly to why I'm here tonight. What, after all, is a Democrat like me doing at a Republican convention like this?”… …“I am here tonight for a simple reason. John McCain is the best choice to bring our country together and lead America forward.”… …“Senator Barack Obama is a gifted and eloquent young man who I think can do great things for our country in the years ahead.” But my friends, eloquence is no substitute for a record, not in these tough times for America. In the -- in the Senate, during the three-and-a-half years that Senator Obama's been a member, he has not reached across party lines to accomplish “anything significant”, nor has he been willing to take on powerful interest groups in the Democratic Party to get something done.”… Just 5 days after Obama accepts his party’s nomination, on August 28, 08’, Joe Lieberman, a well known and highly regarded Jewish Democrat, stands and delivers a very disapproving speech of Obama and an outstandingly excellent speech of endorsement, honor and tribute to and for John McCain. The poll numbers favored Obama by 8 points prior to the speech given by Joe Lieberman and the acceptance speech made by Sarah Palin. Very shortly after these two speeches, John McCain was for the first time, in his campaign, on top with regard to the pollsters. Esther 6:13 “If Mordecai, before whom you have begun to fall, (is of Jewish descent), you will not prevail against him but will surely fall before him.”

A very Possible Scenario of Events in the soon coming Days before the November 04, 2008 election date:
On one of the local Christian TV Stations, GOD’s Learning Channel, I recently heard a Jewish guest speaker, by the name of Avi Lipkin; give a short teaching regarding the way that Muslims think. He was using as his illustration; King Agag and Haman.

7 He stated that according to Jewish Tradition, that after King Saul had spared the life of King Agag, whom Samuel had told King Saul to…“utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey….’” (I Samuel 15:3), that King Agag had “raped” the maidservant sent to assist to Agag’s needs, thus the possibility of Haman being a descendant of Agag. He, Avi Lipkin, went on to suggest that this could have been what was also going on with Haman in; Esther 7:8 When the king returned from the palace garden to the place of the banquet of wine, Haman had fallen across the couch where Esther was. Then the king said, “Will he also assault (violate/rape) the queen while I am in the house?” The Liberal Left Media and Liberals in general have already made the attempt to “assault, demean and rape” any virtue from Sarah Palin. From “fake photos” depicting her as a wine drinking, lesbian prostitute to slanderous and baseless stories of lewd affairs splashed across the tabloid media. This was predictable. But I believe that following the Vice Presidential Debate of Sarah Palin and Joe Biden on Oct 02, which I foresee as being disastrous for Joe Biden, the attempt by the Liberal Left Media and Liberals in general to contemptuously “assault, violate and rape” Sarah Palin will be so brutal as to be shockingly repulsive. So that it may be revealed and fulfilled: Esther7:6 And Esther said, “The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman!” So Haman was terrified before the king and queen. Esther7:9… “Look! The gallows, fifty cubits high, which Haman made for Mordecai, who spoke good on the king’s behalf, is standing at the house of Haman.” Then the king said, “Hang him on it!” May every evil strategy and device come upon their own head! Also, seeing how that there are so many specific points of corresponding reference between the Biblical Story of Esther and this 2008 Presidential Election, I feel that it is very important to mention the dreadfully real probability that there will be a certain amount of civil unrest to varying degrees in different locations…more than likely preceding the Election and following the Election. For that is one of the Key Component Acts in the Book of Esther. Esther 8:11 By these letters the king permitted the Jews who were in every city to gather together and protect their lives—to destroy, kill, and annihilate all the forces of any people or province that would assault them, both little children and women, and to plunder their possessions, 12 on one day in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month of Adar. 13 A copy of the document was to be issued as a decree in every province and published for all people, so that the Jews would be ready on that day to avenge themselves on their enemies. Esther 9:1 …On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them.


A Concluding Thought:
A very weighty prophecy looms over the descendants of Agag in addition to those already given. This one is pronounced by Balaam: Numbers 24:7 He (Israel) shall pour water from his buckets, And his seed shall be in many waters. “His king (Israel’s) “shall be higher” than Agag, And his kingdom shall be exalted. Quite regrettably, the United States has, in many regards, dictated policy to Israel which has caused Israel to bow to the spirit of Amalek/Islam. However, there has never been such an overt descendant of Agag, this close, to residing in the White House My Prayer is that there never will be! Please PRAY and even consider a 1-3 day Esther FAST from the evening of September 29th to the evening of October 02nd, the evening of the Vice Presidential Debate. Lifting up in prayer Sarah Palin and John McCain… “for such a time as this?”

Hallelujah…there is HOPE for “it is written” in the last Chapter of Esther:
Esther 9:4 For Mordecai was great in the king’s palace, and his fame spread throughout all the provinces; for this man Mordecai became increasingly prominent. Esther 9:29-31 Then Queen Esther…with Mordecai the Jew, wrote with full authority…words of peace and truth…as Mordecai the Jew and Queen Esther had prescribed for them… LORD JESUS!!!… May it be so with US, Donny Newman

Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the LORD.
