This post is dedicated to all the righteous moms who have had their children snatched by DCFS, CPS, DHS, DHSS, DSS, DFPS, DCSS AND FAMILY COURTS; the most evil, demonic, destructive entity - composed of people, ostensibly - on the face of this earth. They are the same everywhere - a gang of demons who rip babies and children from good, loving families and then send them to foster hell or sell them to adoption. Children always suffer unfathomably just by the act of "removal."
. . . THE TEN SONS HAD ALREADY BEEN KILLED, WHY BOTHER TO HANG THEM?
In the book of Esther, we find the story of Haman, a man who hated the Jews and tried to exterminate them. (Esther 9:11...)
To accomplish this, he persuaded the King to issue a decree to annihilate all Jews in the provinces, both young and old, women and children.
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.
Thus the Jews defeated all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, with slaughter and destruction, and did what they pleased with those who hated them. And in the citadel the Jews killed and destroyed five hundred men.
We see that in addition to the 500 men who attacked them in Shushan, the Jews killed the 10 sons of Haman. However, Esther had another request of the king after these 10 sons of Haman had already died:
Esther said, "If it pleases the king, let it be granted to the Jews to do again tomorrow according to today's decree, and let Haman's ten sons be hanged on the gallows." So the king commanded this to be done; the decree was issued and they hanged Haman's ten sons.
Esther's request to have the 10 sons of Haman hanged seems rather unusual, seeing that Haman's sons had already been killed.
. . . The ten sons of Haman had already been killed, why bother to hang them?
Using the Jewish method of recording years, the number 707 can represent the year 5707 on the Jewish calendar. Webster's New World Hebrew Dictionary states:
"In practice . . . the thousands are skipped and the Jewish year is referred to by quoting, in Jewish numerical symbols, the figure from the hundreds down" (p. xxiv, Introduction, The Jewish Calender).
So, 5707 on the Jewish calendar was the year that the 10 Nazi war criminals were hanged for their crime of attempting to eradicate the Jewish people. For centuries Jews who read the book of Esther had the future date for the fulfillment of her prophecy there in plain sight, but it could not be deciphered until the event actually occurred!
The moral of the story? What comes around goes around.
