Esther 9-10

Keith Cooper

A World Turned Upside Down (Jesus the better reversal)

The story of Esther demonstrates that the power of death can be overcome. There is a picture here of a God who fights for his people, who will not abandon them. The devil’s efforts to eliminate God’s chosen people will always fail.

On Resurrection Sunday, we see clearly that the threat of death must give way to Almighty God. Crucifying Jesus was the biggest mistake Satan ever made. Jesus is now and always will be our Saviour.

Esther 8

Khumbalani SIbanda

From Victims to Victors (Jesus the better missionary)

Haman’s plan to kill Mordecai had been thwarted and instead he was hung on the gallows he’d prepared for Mordecai. His house and goods were transferred to his God-fearing enemy who had refused to bow down to Haman.

Those who put their trust in the Lord will find strength and stability in the Lord, their source and Saviour. God fought for Mordecai and he fought for the Jews.

Whatever our struggle, we only need to be still and trust in God.

The Mask Comes Off (Jesus the better Esther)

The story of Esther tells us:

  • If the balance of power seems against us, that is an illusion; if God is for us, none can be against us
  • God’s judgement on sin is absolute
  • Where sin abounds, grace abounds much more
