Esther chapter 5

After fasting on the third day has to put on her royal robes instead in the inner Court a front of the king’s Hall.
The King was sitting on his Royal Throne facing the entrance when he saw Queen Esther, pleased with her he held out to her the gold scepter that was in his hand Esther approached and touch the tip of the scepter.

Then the king asked, what is it Queen Esther? what is your request? even up to half the kingdom it will be given to you.

 Esther answers if it pleases the king let the king together with Haman come to a banquet I have prepared.

The king called for haman to come at once so that they may do what Esther asked.

When they went to the banquet Esther had prepared when they were drinking wine the king asked Esther again.

What is your petition? it will be given to you and what is your request? even up to half the kingdom it will be granted.

Esther replies if the king regards me with favor and if it pleases the king and Haman come to a banquet tomorrow then I will answer the Kings question.

Esther was a smart woman I’m sure everybody knew that the king liked to drink she had planned a party, the king loved a banquet also he enjoyed being around Esther that was noticeable when reading she was pleasing to his site.

When Haman went out he was happy until he saw Mordecai at the gate and he didn’t rise or show fear this made haman fill with rage against Mordecai. Haman restrained himself and went home.

Haman was among his friends and family and boasted about all the wonderful things that the king had given him he also boasted about being the only person Queen Esther invited to the banquet but he says that’s no Satisfaction as long as that you Mordecai is sitting at the gate.

Haman wife and friends told him to have a gallow built and ask the king to have Mordecai hung this idea delighted Haman and he had the Gallow built. 

What a power trip, could you imagine his face when he would see Mordecai. It’s never good to think that you are superior or better than someone else the position that God puts us in is not meant to make someone feel less than but meant to help others. Using your Authority position for a greater good.

God has the power to make a man king in with that same power take it away this is something Haman needed to learn. The nerve of his wife and friends to encourage him to ask  for Mordecai to be hung. If you are like me you can’t wait for chapter 6 but that we will save for tomorrow have a blessed day until tomorrow.

Now for the important stuff if you are looking for salvation download the free Bible app, Google, or open your Bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth and believe with your heart that Jesus died on a cross and God raised him from the dead you will be saved. I suggest you read this Bible and build a relationship with our Sovereign God until next time be blessed

  1. Esther is one of my favorites. .. I like it because people are always like, You need to be bold and outspoken if youre a Christian, dont be ashamed of Jesus etc … when that may not be the case. What I get out of Esther is about timing. She hid the fact she was a Jew as do most Christians living under Sharia Law so they wont be killed. Timing to reveal who we are … I just love this book.
