fgd| Two Decrees! | March 24, 2019

 

“The time is coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.” Jeremiah 31:31

 

Haman is still hanging around!
My petition—my life. My request—my people!
Sold for (10,000 talents of silver)…
     Destruction, slaughter, and annihilation
     By this vile Haman!
Haman built a gallows for Mordecai
Hang Haman on it!
Then the King’s fury subsided…

 

Danger Averted!
Haman’s estate is given to Esther
Mordecai is made second in command
Esther gave Haman’s estate to Mordecai 

 

Danger Averted… Or Is It?!
A decree of the King could not be repealed! | Esther 1:19
No document of the King can be revoked! | Esther 8:8
Written to the 127 provinces and to the Jews!
Using the same language…
     Destroy, kill, and annihilate | Esther 8:11

 

And There Was Much Rejoicing in Susa!
1st Decree—Susa was bewildered, Mordecai grieved
2nd Decree—Susa celebrates, Mordecai is royalty

 

Where Was God in All of This?
Is this a little brutal? Attack the women & children? | Esther 8:11
Our first decree… | Genesis 3:13
All have sinned… and we have EARNED a death sentence.
Our second decree… | John 3:16-18
If we believe and confess we will be saved! Romans 10:9-10
