In this sermon we finish out our series in Esther by briefly discussing the Feast of Purim and then moving on the topic of whether or not we should celebrate Old Testament Feasts. Read Esther 9:20-10:3 and Colossians 2:1-19 and listen in.
In Esther 9:1-19 we see the enemies of the Jews in Persia destroyed. In this sermon we discuss God giving over the enemies of His people to destruction and conclude that God is glorified in both justice and mercy in Jesus Christ.
Esther’s intercession for her people beautifully pictures Christ’s intercession for us. Read Esther 8:1-17 and listen in as we see intercession leading to great joy.
In Esther 7:1-10 we see wicked Haman get his due. His hanging serves as both a foreshadowing of the coming judgment and also points us to Jesus who suffered our condemnation on the cross.
In this sermon we look at Esther 6:1-13 and see that God’s timing is absolutely perfect.
God’s wisdom is subtle but sure in the saving of His people – Esther 5:1-14.
In Esther 3:1-15 we see Mordecai making a stand that will seemingly get him and all of his people exterminated! But God is at work, using what is seemingly a small stand by one man to set a huge trap for the His enemies and the enemies of His people. This chapter ends with the future of the Jews looking pretty bleak. How do we respond when our circumstances make it look like evil is winning? Listen in as we look beyond our present circumstances to God and His promises.
