ESTHER 9:29-32 Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim.

The feast commemorates the attempt by Haman, the Agagite (I Sam 15:7), of the seed of Amelek, the sons of Esau, in collaboration with the Grecian empire, as Macedonians to usurp the Persian empire by a coupe to translate the kingdom over to the grecians. This was an attempt to bring about the rulership of Esau over the world, since Zepho, his grandson had gained rulership over the grecians in the earlier days when the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt. Later in time,the king Latinus of Chittim, conquered Edom’s kingdom and made the grecians and edomites one kingdom in the days when Joshua conquered the land of Canaan. This was a great deliverance by Ahayah to save the Israelites, and there was a mass conversion of gentiles from this great work by the Almighty Ahayah.

Est 9:23 And the Jews undertook to do as they had begun, and as Mordecai had written unto them; Est 9:24 Because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of Jews, had devised against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast Pur, that is, the lot, to consume them, and to destroy them; Est 9:25 But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows. Est 9:26 Wherefore they called these days Purim after the name of Pur. Therefore for all the words of this letter, and of that which they had seen concerning this matter, and which had come unto them, Est 9:27 The Jews ordained, and took upon them, and upon their seed, and upon all such as joined themselves unto them, so as it should not fail, that they would keep these two days according to their writing, and according to their appointed time every year; Est 9:28 And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed. Est 9:29 Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim. Est 9:30 And he sent the letters unto all the Jews, to the hundred twenty and seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth, Est 9:31 To confirm these days of Purim in their times appointed,according as Mordecai the Jew and Esther the queen had enjoined them, and as they had decreed for themselves and for their seed, the matters of the fastings and their cry. Est 9:32 And the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim; and it was written in the book.
