"He's Working In You" from Esther 2:1-23

These three books; Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther have the same stories. Esther is the 1st book among the three. And, the reason for their exile is their own sin. The author of Esther is unknown.

Esther is purely historical among other manuscripts, as there's no "God" word mentioned in this book but you can see by understanding that God, is the main point in this story.

In verse 1-14, God has a good plan; and in verse 15-23, He will bless His people. Here in verse 1-4, the plan to look for a new Queen doesn't matter either rich or poor - can become a queen.

Citadel means place of refuge, fortress or a place to protect them. It's like taking a daily bath - to be cleanse by the word of God. One of the characteristics of Esther is being humble.

Hadassah is the other name of Esther. The picture of Mordecai here is just like God, in reality we are being Fatherless and he is taking the responsibility for Esther.

2 Corinthians 6:18 And,
“I will be a Father to you,
and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

1 John 3:1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

We can see here that God is working in us, He is faithful. Esther and Mordecai feared the Lord. As it teaches the inner beauty is the most important. We will receive crown of righteousness according to our works.

Psalm 113:7-8
7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
8 he seats them with princes,
with the princes of his people.

The picture of Esther here is obedience of love to God. Gallows is like a straight wood with a sharp-edge. Even in the midst of godless society, God put you there, and He is working in you.

Philippians 4:2 I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord.

Perhaps you may think God is not working in you, but if you seek God's word and you will know God is working in your life.

"Honor His Word" from Nehemiah 13:1-31

In celebration of "Araw ng Dabaw" fiesta in Davao City, the Mayor ordered "gun banned" to maintain peace in every area.

As for us, we should obey God's word. The first point, is to be consistent with His word.

In the book of Numbers, Balaam was a curse by the Israelites. But that curse turns into blessing. The reason for learning God's word is because just like Jesus, He was a curse for some but made a blessing for all of us.

Nowadays, the world is corrupt and pervert. Jesus is the light of the world whoever follows Him will never be led into darkness.

Psalm 19:7-11 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. 8 The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous.10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. 11 By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

Learn more to obey, seek the Bible, and listen to our conscience, and it is important to listen to the word of God. Seek God's word and be separated from the worldly things. And, do not neglect the church.

1 Timothy 5:17-18 17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. 18 For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.”

Deuteronomy 14:22 Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year.

1 Timothy 3:10 They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.

The second point, Observing the day of the Lord. Don't let your blessings turn into a curse. Set our priority and our priority is Jesus. Observe means to obey, it's not just to watch but to obey.

Exodus 34:21 “Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest.

Exodus 23:12 “Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest, and so that the slave born in your household and the foreigner living among you may be refreshed.

God will remember your work. We have to encourage the people around us to go to fellowship.

Hebrews 13:16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Hebrews 10:25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

The third point, preserve yourself and look after your family.

Exodus 34:16 And when you choose some of their daughters as wives for your sons and those daughters prostitute themselves to their gods, they will lead your sons to do the same.

Deuteronomy 7:3 Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons,

Ecclesiastes 7:26 I find more bitter than death the woman who is a snare, whose heart is a trap and whose hands are chains. The man who pleases God will escape her, but the sinner she will ensnare.

Nehemiah reform the people. All the changes Nehemiah made will be remembered.

"Live A Life Of Worship" from Nehemiah 12:1-47

Dedicate this 2012 as a life of worship to Him alone. Living a life of worship begins to us. As representatives of God we should set example to everyone.

If you are a father, teach your family to spend time and feeding them by the word of God. Don't allow yourselves to be caught up in work, but spend time with your family.

Ezra means help, a priest and a scribe. Levite's were like assistant pastors, they are the back up of the priest and also they are the one who prepare the things for the priest.

We are encourage to praise God. Spending time with Him and you will learned a lot. Annals means history. The word thanks or thanksgiving are mention in this chapter so many times.

Psalm 134:1-3 Praise the LORD, all you servants of the LORD who minister by night in the house of the LORD. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the LORD.3 May the LORD bless you from Zion, he who is the Maker of heaven and earth.

Amazing that in the Bible it was never mentioned that you need to have a perfect voice to be a worship leader. So weather you have a good voice or not sing praises to the Lord.

Hebrews 10:10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Even if you are behind the scene serving the Lord, you are also important to Him. Sometimes in His song, in God's word or people encourage you, makes you purify but the best thing is to do your devotion.

If you minister to God, you should be clean and purify.

Hebrews 5:1-3 Every high priest is selected from among the people and is appointed to represent the people in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people.

Wherever you are you should always praise God.

James 5:13 Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise.

"God Demonstrate A Great Sacrifice" from Matthew 27:45-61

Taj Mahal was built for the Love of a man to his wife. It was a huge sacrifice.
Jesus was the living sacrifice. He received all the pain that was supposed to be for us. Without holiness no one can see God.
God separate himself to Jesus because he is now getting all the sins of the world in some sense God allow this to happen in order to save us.

Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

Hebrews 5:7 During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.

In our walk with the Lord we also need to sacrifice our time and effort.

Humility is thinking of others and not himself only.

Jesus was the perfect attonement.
Christ is now opening the gate of heaven to all the believers.

Turn to Isaiah 53:9-12
We will see that the good shepherd lay down his life for his sheep.

Hebrews 9:14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death,[a] so that we may serve the living God!

We can now serve the Lord because with Jesus God made us qualified. As the curtain was thorned from up to down it means that God is reaching out to man and not man reaching out to God. Keep in mind that the curtain was thorn from top to bottom and not bottom to top.
We can now pray directly to God.

Hebrews 10:19-22 19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

The saints in the old testament was risen from the death after the resurrection of Christ.

Daniel 12:2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.

The real measure of the person wealth is what they have invested for eternity. When you give tithes to God you're investing for eternity.

Investing upon the Lord is also the same as don't lie and cheat and keeping the commandments of God. All the scriptures should be obeyed. All our labor for the Lord is not in vain. Always give yourself fully to the work of God.

The final test of our faith is not "how much you believe" but "how much you love".
