Esther 5: 14 His(Haman) wife Zeresh and all his friends said to him, "Have a gallows built, 75 feet high and ask the King in the morning to have Mordecai hanged on it. Then go with the King to the dinner and be happy". The suggestion delighted Haman and he had the gallows built.
I hope you have read the story of Esther. It's so rich with drama, intrigue, murder plots and the true love of God for His people.
As we see in this passage Haman plotted with family and friends to have Mordecai murdered because he would not bow down to him and stayed true to God only. Haman doesn't know Modecai is the cousin of now Queen Esther as the king loved her more than any other women and chose her as his wife and new Queen. Mordecai had given an instruction to Esther before entering the court not to disclose her race. Haman thinks the Queen has invited him with the king to a dinner to honor him above all others but in reality it is a dinner to ask the King to spare her people. Haman is unaware of the trap being set for him. The night before the banquet the king could not sleep and asks his attendants to bring him the record books. He sees the a man named Mordecai had uncovered a murderous plot to kill him and had not been honored. As Haman stands outside the court waiting to be summoned in, the king calls for him and asks how should a man who pleases the king be honored. Haman thinks he is speaking of himself. He tells the king all the wonderful things the king should, do not knowing the king was speaking of Mordecai. So the king tells Haman to go and do all he has suggested for Mordecai. Haman is filled with hatred and is humiliated. His own family told him he was going to come to ruin now. Before he can think of another way to kill Mordecai the carriage arrives to take him to the dinner....Oh my goodness..the story just gets better.
The take away: Do not plot against God's anointed or His people!! Hmmmm....sound familiar to today's plot to impeach a non sitting president and God's anointed? To censor God's people and shut them down? God will see to it what evil is planned against His people is brought against them! Let us stand true with God, waiting for His words of justice and righteousness to be brought back to America. Let us stand arm in arm with each other and proclaim God's truths and righteousness. Let us wait on God, holding tight to the promises spoken through the true prophets of God. Church hold the line. Stay the course. Keep praying and Our God is mighty to save. The Red Sea is quaking. Amen!!
