OPENING COMMENT by Robert
I. He makes a false and malicious representation of Jews, and their character, to the king, Esther 3:8. The enemies of God’s people could not give them such bad treatment as they do if they did not first give them a bad name. He would have the king believe,
1). That the Jews were a despicable people, and that it was not for his credit to harbour them: “A certain people there is,” without a name, as if nobody knew whence they came and what they were “they are not incorporated, but scattered abroad and dispersed in all the provinces as fugitives and vagabonds on the earth, and inmates in all countries, the burden and scandal of the places where they live”
2). That they were a dangerous people, and that it was not safe to harbour them “They have laws and usages of their own, and conform not to the statutes of the kingdom and the customs of the country and therefore they may be looked upon as disaffected to the government and likely to infect others with their singularities, which may end in a rebellion” It is no new thing for the best of men to have such invidious characters as these given of them if it is no sin to kill them, it is no sin to belie them.
Father as you have us in your presence and hold us in your hands, we ask for your gentleness to be upon us that we may know how it feels and are able to share it.
Receive our devotion and submission to your will as dedicated servants humbly bowing before your throne, Shape and mold us into the disciples you desire Father.
Fill us with your wisdom that we might hold no fear or doubt as we go forward sharing your light, living water, love, compassion, and healings as your “Modern Day Disciples. This we pray in your name Yeshua Amen and Amen.
Remember these articles are from a humble obedient servant doing Yeshua’s bidding as He reveals His warnings. I pray our Lord Yeshua blesses each and everyone along with your families. Go in peace.
Genesis 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
