Passover and the Reversal of Destiny

Celebrate the Victory Because of sin, we all will face death, revealing our destiny-choices before God. We need to prepare for our remaining days as seriously as Esther, and celebrate our freedom and victories as heartily as all of Xerxes Jewish kingdom. No witness…

The King’s Heart Revealed

When the first dinner was completed the King offered Esther ‘up to half the kingdom’ but she requests a repeat performance the following night. Whether God spoke to her or through her at that moment, we can certainly see God’s working during the later…

Look What God Has Done!
