Okay now that the introduction is over lets get started.
Esther Chapter 3
Hamans plot to destroy the Jews.
After the hanging of the officials king Xerxes honor haman son of Hammedatha the agagite elavating him and giving him a seat of high honor then all the nobles. All royal officials knelt down and paid honor to Haman, which king Xerxes had commanded. Mordecai would not obey this order, day after day the officials would speak to Mordecai about this until one day they decided to speak to Haman to see if Mordecais behavior was tolerated, Mordecai informed them that he was a Jew.
When Haman saw for himself that Mordecai did not kneel or honor himhe was enraged. Haman didn’t want to just punish Mordecai he wanted all the Jews destroyed.
This is crazy, because the Jews didn’t bow to man but only gave God the high honor he thought they should die, a power trip if I ever saw one.
In the twelfth year of king Xerxes reign they cast lots to decided the day to carry out his decree.the lot fell on the twelfth month. Haman told king Xerxes that there were a people who were scattered throughout the province that do not obey the kings law, he informed the king that he shouldn’t tolerate them.
Haman says to the king he would pay ten thousand talents of silver to the men who carry out this business if you he puts out the decree to destroy the Jews.
The king took of his signet ring and gave it to Haman the enemy of the Jews and then says, keep the money and do with the people as you please.
This is horrible no one should have that much power over the lives of others or think they have the right to kill people for having different beliefs. Sad part is this is apart of our everyday life now. To seebrhe same bigotry in the bible tells me though I was shielded this ain’t nothing new it just was hidden for awhile combed over.
It was written that all the jews were to be destroyed in the province this decree was sealed with the kings ring. A copy of the text was sent out for every nationality to be prepared for the day. The king and Haman sat down for a drink but the whole city was bewildered.
Oh my,my,my this was serious I have come to the conclusion that King Xerxes has a drinking problem and Haman was his drinking partner. Which led to him giving this man so much authority, even after ordering the death of so many people they found that to be a reason to drink.
I hope your enjoying this book as much as I am. I am excited to find out what chapter 4 will be about, what about you?
