ESTHER CHAPTER 8

On the same day that Haman was hung King Xerxes gave Esther the estate of Haman the enemy of the Jews. Mordecai came in to the kings presences Esther had told king Xerxes how she was related to Mordecai.


The king took off his signet ring that he reclaimed from Haman and gave it to Mordecai, Esther appointed him over the estate that once belong to Haman.

Esther began pleading with the king falling on the floor and weeping she begged him to put an end to the evil plan of Haman which he devised against the Jews.


If it pleases the king she said “and if he regards me with favor and thinks it’s the right thing to do, and if he is pleased with me let an order be written over ruling the dispatches that Haman devised and wrote to destroy the jews in all the kings provinces. For how can I bear to see the destruction of my family?”

King Xerxes replied to Esther and  Mordecai  by saying “because Haman attacked the Jews I have given his estate to Esther then they have hang him on gallows.” He says to Esther ” write another decree in the kings name in behalf of the Jews. As seems best to you and seal it with the kings signet ring for no document written in the kings name and sealed with the kings ring can be revoked.”

At once the royal secretaries were  summoned  on the twenty-third  day of the third month, the month of Sivan they wrote out Mordecais orders to the Jews and the Satraps, governor’s and nobles of the 127 provinces stretching from india to cush.


These orders were written in the script of each province and the language of each people. Mordecai wrote in the name of king Xerxes sealed the dispatches with the kings signet ring and sent them by mounted courier, who rode fast horse specially bred for the king.

The king edict granted every Jew the right to protect themselves to destroy,  kill and annihilate any arm force of any nationality or province that may attack them or their women and children.

The day appointed was the thirteenth day of rhe twelfth month, the month of adar.

The edict was sent out and Mordecai left the kings presences wearing  royal garments of  blue and white, a large crown of gold and a purple robe of linen and the city of Susa held a Joyous celebration, for the Jews it was a time of happiness and joy, gladness and honor, this was so in every province the edict was sent.

After a document is sent out that is sealed with the kings ring it can not be revoked so Mordecai had to think of a way that the Jews wouldn’t suffer. 

Mordecai  put out an order so that the Jews would be able to fight back their enemies the edict was put out on the same day that Hamans edict was put out 12/12.

Reading this chapter I thought about how God can take a bad situation and change it for the good. 

He hears your prayers and shifts your circumstances take this chapter and if you are going through something prepare yourself for a mighty shift know that he will never forsake you.

Now for the Important part. If you are looking for salvation Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth and believe with your heart that Jesus died on the cross, and God raised him from the dead you will be saved. Enjoy a relationship with our Sovereign God Jesus Christ he’s waiting on you.

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? 

Now for the Important stuff. If you are looking for Salvation please open your bibles, google, or download the free bible app and turn to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth and believe with tour heart rhat Jesus died on the cross and on the third day God raised him from the dead you will be saved. Get in a good bible based church and enjoy a wonderful relationship with our Sovereign God. 

You guys be blessed until next time.
