Day of Reckoning – Esther 7

Well, it was time for Haman to go to the banquet with the king and the queen. He had no idea what was about to happen.Finally, the king asks his queen what her request is. And then it happens. Queen Esther reveals her request, that her people would be spared from the man who hatched the plan to slaughter them. The king asked who would do such a thing:

6 Esther said, “The adversary and enemy is this vile Haman.” Then Haman was terrified before the king and queen.

Can you imagine what must have been going through Haman’s mind? His whole life was unraveling before him. His evil had caught up with him.

Well, the king is infuriated and storms out of the room. Haman falls on Queen Esther as she lay on the couch. He pleads for her to spare him. The king returns and sees Haman all over his Queen and that does it.

It seems that Mordy was not the only one who couldn’t stand Haman because one of the king’s attendants shouts out to the king:

9 Then Harbona, one of the eunuchs attending the king, said, “A gallows seventy-five feet high stands by Haman’s house. He had it made for Mordecai, who spoke up to help the king.” The king said, “Hang him on it!”

So, what Haman had intended for evil for Mordy and all his Jewish nation, Queen Esther had turned around for good. Sounds like another scripture, doesn’t it?

Romans 8:28 – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

What a reassuring thought.peace,

    Romans 8:28 is one of my favorite verses. It is truly reassuring.
