There is no getting away from the fact that God was from the beginning and is from everlasting to everlasting. God is the Word, the Word is God and there is no separating of the two. When we read the Holy Scriptures we come in close and personal contact with God. We know who He is and what He desires of us. So read God’s Word today.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away" (Matthew 24:35). "Thy Words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart . . ."(Jeremiah 15:16)

BIBLE ALERT - This feature takes a look at a Book of the Bible and highlights its spiritual application, meaning and other related facts.

This week’s alert features The Book of Esther

Esther, a young Jewish woman who was cared for by her cousin Mordecai, rises to fame and prominence, when she is selected from a beauty contest to become the queen of Persia. Her husband king Ahasuerus had divorced his wife queen Vashti who had refused to show off her beauty at the king’s bidding. Esther finds great favor in the king’s eyes and he loves her above all the women (2:17). A trusted employee of the king plots to kill Mordecai who does not bow to him and to slaughter all the Jews in Persia. This causes great fear in Mordecai for Esther who has not revealed her Jewish heritage to the king. Esther commands Mordecai to lead the Jews in prayer and fasting and in a sterling show of faith and courage Esther boldly approaches the king and tells him her identity and reveals the plot of Haman, his trusted official. By virtue of her position and being in the kingdom for such a time as this (4:14), she is able to save the Jews and good triumphs over evil.

“Go gather all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me . . . and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish” (Esther 4:16).

The king orders Haman and his sons to be killed and they are hung on the same gallows which he had prepared for Mordecai. Mordecai is elevated to a high status in Shushan and in the sight of the Jews. The king grants a proclamation that the enemies of the Jews are to be killed and the Jews proceed accordingly. Esther and the Jews prevail and the Jews celebrate this event as Purim even to this day. In this 10-chapter Book there is no reference to God. However, the accounts have everything to do with God. The king is a picture of God holding out His scepter to those whom He chooses to come before Him and grants them His mercy. Esther is a picture of the true believers chosen by God and who can come boldly to the throne of grace and find mercy in their time of need as Hebrew 4:16 states. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and the Book of Esther is another great example of this fact.

ENTER THE PRAYER ROOM AND PRAY ALONG

 

“I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting” (1 Timothy 2:8).
