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.
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.
