"We Are Victorious" from Esther 9:1-32 and Esther 10:1-3

Image
Why was Haman - angry with Mordecai? 1 Samuel 15:18 And he sent you on a mission, saying, ‘Go and completely destroy those wicked people, the Amalekites; wage war against them until you have wiped them out.’ Obedience is better than sacrifice. We can see this on verse 1-5, And, victory with a help of a King. We as humans are victorious by the help of God. Haman made the law that "Jews should be killed". And on another chapter, they made 2 laws. The enemy of the Jews to carried out like a Civilian War. Romans 8:33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. What situation in the Bible that has twist? It was about Joseph and Paul story. If we love the worldly things much more than God then you are His enemy. Haman means self righteous. Galatians 5:19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 2 Peter 1:5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodnes…

"God Will Turn Your Hardships Into Blessings" from Esther 8:1-17

More purely historical than any other scriptures. When we have hardships in life we should never give up. Because God will turn your hardships into blessings. Estate means land, assets or properties. Proverbs 13:22 A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. God will continue to provide even though we experience hardships in life, we know that God will give hope in us. The King took off his ring, and gave the authority to Esther to replace Haman's position. Esther and Mordecai experienced hardships at first, but God turn it into blessings. His glorious blessings is in Christ our Lord Jesus. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord. Just like what happened here to the Jews, they should be killed, but God saved and helped them. Dispatches means sealed, sent out or mail. As God's children, God's favor it's not our rig…

"He Will Meet Your Needs" from Acts 3:1-10

Image
Prayer is important. According to the word of God in the book of Daniel - Daniel prayed 3-times a day 9:00am, 3:00pm and 6:00pm

We can pray on any languages - God does not require us to pray one language.

Luke 24:53 (NIV)
53 And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.
Everyday the apostle continue to meet together in prayer. Temple is the place were we can together worship God and praise Him.

Paul emphasizes to use our body as Holy and pleasing to God. To worship the Lord and study God's words. God will meet our deepest needs.

Psalm 55:17 (NIV)
17 Evening, morning and noon
I cry out in distress,
and he hears my voice.
In spiritual sense we are crippled by our sins and beggars from God's saving grace. God's mercy never ends. If you don't acknowledge God, you will become crippled and will never be satisfied. Nobody can be satisfied with worldly things because even if you can have all the material things of this world but it will never satisfied you.



"We are protected " from Esther 7:1-10

Whenever we disobey, we will see the consequences. God is always answering our prayer it can be yes, no or wait. As children of God, we are chosen by God. And, the key to everything is fellowship. D.E.V.O.T.E - D-edicate, E-ncourage, V-alue, O-bey, T-hanksgiving, E-ternity. In all of these things, God is working. The King made a decision to hang Haman. It goes back to Mordecai that should be given to him. Pride will lead us to destruction. We are nothing but by the grace of God. Put on humility, sensitivity, God's power in us and put off pride. Hatred will be punished. Psalm 7:15 Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit they have made. Proverbs 26:27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them. God has an incredible way in destroying our enemy. Remember all the things that God told you, we are protected by God. ~~~
