    Not only did his obedience gain him the favor of God and man, but he spent his years doing what every leader should do: “seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed (Psalm ). Mordecai held the office of first minister no longer than eight years. Secular history records that another man was in that office (in. I got out of bed and read it and further. I feel this is certainly a message from God for me. But not sure what the message is. The name of God is not mentioned in the book of Esther. However, His providential hand can be seen throughout it. Reply Yet prayer is communication between man and his creator. That communication is precise.

    Hathach came back and told Esther everything Mordecai had said. Esther talked it over with Hathach and then sent him back to Mordecai with this message: “Everyone who works for the king here, and even the people out in the provinces, knows that there is a single fate for every man or woman who approaches the king without being invited: death. Esther "And Mordecai came again to the king's gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered." After such royal treatment, Mordecai simply “came again to the king’s gate”. His was a far different response from Haman’s upon being invited to Esther’s dinner party (in verse ).

    10 Then Esther told Hathach to say this to Mordecai: 11 “Mordecai, all the king’s leaders and all the people of the king’s provinces know this: The king has one law for any man or woman who goes to the king without being called. That person must be put to death unless the king holds out his gold scepter to them. If the king does this, that person’s life will be saved. Esther’s Dilemma and Decision (Esther ) (let alone the entire book!). Mordecai is not a godly Jew, trusting in God to save his people. He is a disobedient, unbelieving Jew, who seems hardly to think of God. His panic is because he sees the deliverance of the Jews as the result of man’s initiative. If Mordecai does not mention God.

If this refers to Mordecai, he would have had to live over a century to have witnessed the events described in the Book of Esther (assuming the biblical Ahasuerus is indeed Xerxes I). He has been believed by many to have been the author of the Book of Esther; and in the earliest known notice of the Feast of Purim, outside of the book just mentioned, that festival is closely associated with his name.

It is called "the day of Mordecai" (2 Macc ). Mordecai (little man, or worshipper or Mars), the deliverer, under divine Providence, of the Jews from the destruction plotted against them by Haman the chief minister of Xerxes; the institutor of the feast of Purim.

The incidents of his history are too well known to need to be dwelt upon. Mordecai A Type Of Christ In The Book Of Esther. Though the enemies of God and His people are in positions of power now, and the Man of Sin will rule with highest authority during the Tribulation, God will publicly reward the Lord Jesus in a day to come.

Sympathetic. The Book of Esther begins with the Queen of King Ahasuerus—Vashti—snubbing the king's request to meet with her. Naturally, being a rather unstable fellow, Ahasuerus fires-slash-divorces her.

Now he needs to pick a new queen and eventually manages to select Esther—a comely, young (secretly Jewish) woman who is a part of his harem. Well, I am greatly challenged, on some occasions, in all honesty, as you well know, to get through one verse.

Haman meant evil for Mordecai but it worked together for Mordecai because a book of remembrance had already been opened unto him Scripture: Esther Sep 12,  · Mordecai Johnson was born on December 12, in a small Southern town, Paris, Tennessee to former slaves, Wyatt and Carolyn.

| Prof. Rachel Adelman. Esther The Message (MSG). 4 When Mordecai learned what had been done, he ripped his clothes to shreds and put on sackcloth and ashes. Then he went out in the streets of the city crying out in loud and bitter cries. He came only as far as the King’s Gate, for no one dressed in sackcloth was allowed to enter the King’s Gate.
