Perhaps you remember this story:
A young lady, who walks in the fear of the Lord, is chosen to be queen, only to discover that a leader in the king’s court has decided that he will have her people annihilated. Of course, he does not know they are hers. Still, with the king’s proclamation, he puts out an order to have all her people destroyed. The young lady is devastated and prays and fasts, along with many others, before petitioning the king for the lives of her people, risking her own life. The king is moved by her petition because he loves her. The tables are turned…the accuser, who is driven by hatred and jealousy, becomes the one who is put to death. She petitions a second time so that her people will be able to fight for their lives. Many of the very people attacking her people, fall to their own deaths.
Her petitions to her Lord first and then to her king, saved her life and those she loved.
This, of course, is a very short synopsis of Queen Esther’s story.
There are many interesting facts about this story.
The Lord appointed Esther.
It was definitely the Lord who raised Esther up to be queen. It wasn’t that she sought the position of queen, nor that she necessarily wanted to speak out to save her people, for fear of her own life. The Lord could have used another source to save his people as her cousin, Mordecai, stated,
“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews WILL arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14 (NIV)
She did have a choice, but God had put her in the perfect position.
Mordecai was already in a good position with the king.
I thought it was interesting that Mordecai had already saved the king’s life while Esther was in the king’s palace. He heard about a plot against the king’s life and warned Esther who told the king and gave credit to Mordecai. This was already established before there was a plot against the Jews for annihilation. God had used what was meant for evil to bring good.
God was preparing the king’s heart.
It is noteworthy to realize that while Haman was plotting to have Mordecai killed because he would not bow before him, the king was reading through his book of records and discovered that Mordecai was not rewarded for saving his life. How did he miss that before? He wasn’t sure what to do to reward him so asked Haman, who thought the king was talking about honoring him, instead.
Although it was death that Haman had so craved for Mordecai, the king had Haman honor Mordecai. Can you imagine the anger that rose up in Haman’s heart? How on earth could this Jew be honored with the king’s robe and paraded around the city? He was so driven by jealousy and anger. It must have been extremely humiliating and aggravating to him. But he knew that soon Mordecai would see his death because of the proclamation he had snared the king into proclaiming.
Crazy enough the Lord had other plans. He moved on Esther and she fasted, as did her servants, as did all the Jews in the land. They fasted and prayed and called out to their maker. Instead of her people being killed, those who intended evil on them all died. Haman hung from the very gallows he had intended for Mordecai. Some versions of the Bible stated that they weren’t gallows, as we know them, but poles that impaled the victim.
As I have watched the display of anger that has infested the attempts to impeach the President of the United States, the Lord reminded me of the story of Esther. There has been plots to destroy our president in any way possible. Jealousy that he is president is driving some individuals mad and have for almost 3 years. How could he be paraded as the President of the United States? Wasn’t that role intended for someone else? Surely, they must think, “We will plot another way to destroy him.”
I have been praying that the Lord would continue to use him, as he has been open in restoring God’s plan for America. I know that many believers are not on the same page and yet, others are. They have been earnestly praying for him, for America, for the Holy Spirit to sweep across the nation, once again. One of the most important issues to me is the president’s willingness to protect the unborn.
He also stands up to those who have always had their way, to the media who mock him and to country leaders that used to laugh at America. He isn’t doing this to pad his wallet and is not willing to bow to the same politics as many have in the past.
Back to the story. Haman had gone home and told his wife how indignant he felt because this Jew would not bow to him. She was the one that encouraged him to build gallows for him and have him killed. It satisfied Haman. He was puffed up with pride and filled with this one desire:
“Destroy this man! And destroy any person like him!”
Mordecai asked Esther to petition the king. She was afraid but spent 3 days fasting before her Lord, as did her people. They wept before God and asked for favor. And then, with boldness, she petitioned the king, who could have had her put to death.
I see our President as Mordecai. He will not bow before those that are throwing around their weight. He will not bow before the pressures of politics. He wants the best for the American people whether they voted for him or not. His life as the president is on the line.
Like Mordecai, he needs people to pray. If we are like Esther we will fast and petition the KING, our Lord, on his behalf and on the behalf of the American people.
We need to come boldly before the King of Kings and plead for mercy for our President who is always under attack, mercy for people that stand with him and mercy for America, as a whole.
Even as I write this, I feel like Esther pleading before my Lord for mercy. I am speaking boldly about a subject that isn’t popular, a subject that has gotten many people ridiculed, rejected and some even beaten, all because they choose to stand behind a president they believe in.
Are you an Esther? Will you pray? Will you pray that God’s will, will be done? Will you pray for truth? Will you pray for justice? I’m not talking about just complaining or arguing about the obvious, but PRAY, with bended knee before your Lord.
The last couple days I kept hearing in my spirit: “Haman will swing on his own gallows.” This is not about a people group. It is about the anit-christ spirit rising up and attacking with vengeance.
He has already anointed you to pray.
The president is already in a good position, set by the Lord.
The King’s heart is ready to hear your petition.
Like Esther, please petition your KING!

I will pray for God’s will to be done. I will pray for truth. I will pray for justice. But, I don’t see eye to eye with you regarding our president. I see him more in the role that you describe Haman. Yet, I do believe God puts kings in place and he deposes them, and he even put evil kings in place when it served his purposes. And, I believe that Donald Trump is in place because God put him there. But, I don’t believe that he is for the people at all or that he doesn’t bow to the beast. I believe he is part of the beast. And, he is their “trump card” for the takeover of our nation by that beast.
But, I also believe God will use this to get the attention of his people who have drifted away from him, and that revival of the church will take place because of this, too. So, this all serves God’s purposes in bringing his wayward ones back to him, and in exposing the deceptions, and in revealing the truth so that hearts will be turned away from their sins to God before our Lord Jesus returns to judge and to take his people to be with him forever.
But, let me also state here that I don’t believe the news, for most of it is contrived or twisted, and I don’t believe that there is such a thing as Republican and Democrat, but that they are all actors, playing their roles, and that this whole right and left thing is all an act, a stage production, and that all this fighting between sides is all a performance.
For, the de facto government of the US is really not most of these actors, but it is a shadow government of the elite of the world (the All-Seeing Eye of Horus depicted on our national seal) which is conquering the world one nation at a time. So, Trump, Obama, Clinton, and the Bushes, et al, all serve the same people or they are the elite themselves who are ruling and conquering the world. They are all on the same side, with the same agenda, but they just play act opposition to each other for the entertainment and for the disorientation and deception of the American people. For, reading the news is like watching a soap opera.
God’s plan for America, I believe, is to revive her spiritually, but that this will only take place through difficult times which lie ahead. And, those difficult times ahead will include persecution of those who are truly following Jesus Christ with their lives, but that God will use that to get his wayward ones to return to him, and to get those who falsely profess his name to truly trust him as Lord and as Savior of their lives. And, to that end I am praying, that America will be spiritually revived, that the veil of deception will be lifted from her eyes, that the truth will be revealed, and that many will turn their hearts to Jesus Christ.
Love you! Beth, I appreciate your heart!! ❤
