|ESTHER Chapter Ten|
Esther Chapter Ten
And the king Ahasuerus laid a tribute upon the land, and upon the isles of the sea. And all the acts of his power and of his might, and the declaration of the greatness of Mordecai, whereunto the king advanced him, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia? For Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed.
The story concludes with Mordecai receiving a generous reward from the king. His importance also recorded in the book of the chronicles of the kings.
Compare the advancement of Mordecai with this verse:
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. ~ Ephesians 4:2-7, KJV
Their story inspires believers to trust God's wisdom and timing, and to stand strong in the face of persecution.
What I personally liked most about the story is that the King is ready and willing to fight for his bride!
Thus concludes our Bible study on Esther. I hope you enjoyed it! But more importantly; I hope that you have learned your place in Christ and the love that He has for you. That's my ultimate goal for you in any Bible study that I present.
Until the next time,
