Esther 9:1 “Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king’s commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution in the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;)”

I love, fear and deeply reverence God. Only Him is worthy to be praised, honoured and celebrated. He is the only wise God. The ultimate superpower of our universe. It is a dangerous thing not to take sides with him. Better still it is a suicide mission to be against a man who has God on his side.

In the days of Esther, Mordecai and the children of Israel; King Ahasuerus or Xerxes happens to be about the most powerful king in the world. Hear this:

Esther 1:1 “Now it came to pass in the days of Ahasuerus, (this is Ahasuerus which reigned from India even unto Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces:)”

In order words, Ahasuerus was president of about one hundred and twenty seven countries as of that time; that was massive. The other issue however is that his word is law. Whatever he says stands. He was so powerful that they literally worship him as a god.

That godlike status makes it practically impossible for him to change whatever he says. They believe that “gods” can’t make mistakes. Once he signs anything into law, it can’t be reversed, else he will lose his godlike status.

When Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite had issues with Mordecai and the Jews, he tricked king Ahasuerus into signing into law a decree that on the thirteenth day of December that year, every Jew should be killed, their houses and farmlands seized. Every other race can do whatever they like with any Jew they know and there won’t be negative consequences.

The plan was already hatched and signed into law, people were only waiting for the day of execution.

But friend, on that day the table was turned!
