Do we really want to be just like Esther? Esther 4:16 - Biblical Teaching

Esther - Book Review March 18, 2008   by Angela Doreathy Glass Watkins



Do we really want to be just like Esther?



Esther 4:16 - Biblical Teaching



Is this review from this book a parable and or symbolic? How does this review fit in or speak to us today? Could this be a serious call for prayer and fasting?


Have you ever thought that this could not only be for Jewish people, it could be for a certain person, or groups of people?



parable - (moral or spiritual truth). A heavenly message with an earthly story


symbols - music, sounds, a sign by which one knows


symbolic - dance, (dance also refers to war, marriage, etc - Biblical Teaching) pertaining to a symbol (symbols) .. the end of my comments



Esther had a lot to worry about. She stood outside the king's chamber and realized that within a few minutes she could be dead.


That didn't happen of course.



Her story is about how God used a young Jewish girl, who became Queen of Persia and Media, to protect the Jewish people from extermination.



The amazing ........... thing is that God's name and His power is never mentioned, yet His fingerprints are all over this book. (The Book - The Bible)



Here are just some of the ways that God's power is shown in Esther's story:



Esther finds favor with the person in charge of the beauty contestants.



The king chooses Esther as his new queen.



Mordecai stops an assassination plot ............ against the king, but the king doesn't reward him.



The ........ enemy ............... of the Jews, Haman plots to have the Jews exterminated.



Esther finds favor with the king to come unannounced into his presence.



Haman appears at that very moment and is sent to give honor (the king's reward) to Haman's enemy, Mordecai.



Esther plans .......... two ............ banquets and is seemingly attacked by Haman in front of the king.



The king commands .......... and gives Esther permission to have the Jews protect themselves when the citizen attack them.



God's power is evident in so many ways. There are many things that Esther could have worried about.



Esther submitted herself to God's protection and care.


Do we really want to be just like Esther?
