Esther, Mordecai, Alistair Begg discussed on Truth For Life Daily Program


Things are going well in our lives, when we're safe and secure, most of us are reluctant to rock the boat. Today on truth for life, we'll find out how Queen Esther responded when she was confronted by a potentially life threatening dilemma. She had the option to hide in the safety of the palace or she could risk her life to save her people. Alistair begg is teaching from the book of Esther a message titled what's going on. I invite you to turn with me to the Old Testament to the book of Esther to chapter four, and we'll read from verse 12, and they told mordecai would Esther had said, then mordecai told them to reply to Esther. Do not think to yourself that in the king's palace, you will escape any more than all the other Jews. But if you keep silent at this time relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this. Then Astor told them to reply to mordecai, go gather all the Jews to be found in Souza and hold a fast on my behalf and do not eat or drink for three days, night or day, I and my young women will also fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish. Mordecai then went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him. Thanks, B to God, for his word. Father, illumined the page to us by the Holy Spirit. We pray. So that our study may not simply instruct our minds, but still our hearts, challenge our wills, and change our lives. Only to all these spirit can do this, to him we look in Christ's name, we pray amen. Paul writes to the Romans in chapter 15 and he tells them whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction that through endurance and the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hoped.
