Esther chapter 4
When Mordecai found out what was decreed by the king he tore off his clothes and put on sackcloth and Ashes he went into the city wailing loudly and bitterly, He only went to the king’s gate. In every Province there was a great morning among the Jews.
When Esthers eunuch and maids came and told her about Mordecai she was in great distress, she sent close to him but he would not accept them. Esther said hathach one of the Kings eunuch assigned to her to find out what was troubling Mordecai.
Mordecai told hathach everything that had happened to him, including the exact amount of money Haman had promised to pay into the Royal treasury for the destruction of the Jews. He also gave him a copy of the text of the edict for their annihilation, which had been published in Susa. Mordecai told him to urge Esther to go into the king’s presence to beg for mercy and plead with him for their people.
Hathach went back and told Esther what Mordecai said and she sent him back with a message all the king’s officials and the people of Royal provinces no you will be put to death if you approach the king in the inner Court without being summoned the only exception is if the king Extends a gold scepter and the King had not called for her in thirty days.
It seems as if Esther was probably afraid to face her husband the king and in that situation I would probably feel the same way death to the person who interrupts him without being summoned.
When Mordecai received this message he sent back his own that said: don’t think that because you are in the King’s house that you alone of all the Jews will escape, if you remain silent relief and deliverance for the Jews will rise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish, and who knows you may have been put in this position for such a Time.
Esther sent the message to Mordecai to gather all the Jews fast for me and do not eat or drink for three days or nights she says that she and her Maids will do the same and when it’s done she will go to the king this chapter ends with Esther saying if I perish, I perish.
This chapter is deep being stuck between willing to give up your life and save your people or be quiet and be the queen. But who could live knowing that they could say something to save their people.
It was right of Esther to fast and pray and have everyone fast and pray together she was bringing God right in the center of her decision. She knew that she would have God’s blessing so if she died she would die doing work that was for God’s people.
I hope that you enjoy chapter 4 of Esther this book it’s so amazing you know it’s a story of sacrifice.
