In 473 BC during the reign of Xerxes I of Persia [or Ahasuerus of Iran], Haman the Amalekite was the senior advisor to the king. The Amalekites had an ancient feud with Israel described in Exodus 17 and 1 Samuel 15. Haman plotted to kill the Jews and cast purim or lots that chose the 14th of Adar (February/March) by chance. However, God put Queen Esther and Mordecai in place for such a time as this. Haman was hanged, his sons were killed and the Amalekites were judged for persecuting the Jews. The Jewish people were saved from harm and Mordecai was appointed top advisor to the king. A day of mourning became a day of deliverance.

Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai. In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar (Esther 3:6-7).
Purim is not part of the original seven appointed days of Leviticus 23 but has been a holiday for over 2500 years. People wear costumes of the main characters in the story. The book of Esther is read and every time that Haman's name is mentioned, the people yell and use noise makers to blot out his name. A part of the celebration is eating a festive meal and giving to the poor.

[Mordecai established] this among them, that they should keep the fourteenth day of the month Adar, and the fifteenth day of the same, yearly, As the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy, and from mourning into a good day: that they should make them days of feasting and joy, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor (Esther 9:21-22).
Is it by chance or the design of a sovereign God that Purim has become a day that God brings judgment against Israel's enemies? Starting with the original destruction of Haman and the Amalekites, we see God act during our time. Saddam Hussain of Iraq was a type of Haman. Although he persecuted the Jews, he was hanged, his sons were killed and his people were judged. The Persian Gulf War (Iraq War I) ended and Iraq War II began on Purim. Iran, Iraq and Israel are still in the news today.

Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had devised against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast Pur, that is, the lot, to consume them, and to destroy them; 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 (Esther 9:24-25).
