Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Last week, we saw how Haman’s extreme prejudice, hatred, and discrimination against the Jews led him to influence King Xerxes to accede to his request to destroy them. To that end, the king authorized him to issue a Decree of Extermination, and send it to all the provinces, for their destruction. However, the Jews avoided the fate that had been decreed for them. We can draw biblical principles from the way it happened that could guide us today. In the first place, the selfless and courageous action of some people from the persecuted group is required. God met the Jews’ desperate need for an intercessor, a deliverer, and a savior through the obedience and courage of Esther. God has a way of preparing people ahead of time to play the role of saviours or deliverers of their people from the hands of their enemies. Such people often occupy positions that give them the opportunity to know what is being planned against their people, and to do something about it. Unfortunately, some of them are more concerned about themselves than their people that they fail to do anything to prevent the destruction of their own people. Not so Mordecai and Esther.

Prejudice and discrimination are serious problems within every society. The attempt by Haman, a man filled with extreme prejudice and bitter hatred toward the Jewish race, to exterminate the Jews is the basic plot of the book of Esther. This event is recorded in the Bible for all generations to remember and guard against.

The year is running to the end, and more importantly we are entering the month of thanksgiving. Everybody is counting their blessings in the year. Testimonies are being prepared to prove God’s goodness and faithfulness. To some people there can’t be a better year. Some made advancement in business, some got a wholesome promotion. To some it is the year of opened doors. Indeed, to some it’s been a year of watershed achievement. Whereas, for some people they could not explain why life has been so miserable and unfair to them; heaven seems to be cast in iron. The shame and reproach of some people seem to be so obvious and they feel all eyes are on them. But wait before you begin to heap a mountain of guilt upon yourself and to give God names that can never be associated with His character.

As the year draws to a close and we begin to seek the face of God on what will be our theme for 2019, God still wants us to look at our theme for this year from another perspective. Truly, 2018 has been our year of complete freedom in Christ. Each and every one of us has experienced freedom in many areas of our lives. However, it is not enough to have experienced freedom in Christ; He also desires that we become agents of freedom. That is, becoming instruments of freedom in the hand of our God to bring about the liberation of others from bondage of sin, sickness, pain, poverty, emotional disorder and other limitations that have held them bound. Our text gives us insight on how to do this. In our text, three important issues could be identified, the crippled man, his environment or location and John and Peter, whom the Lord used to set the man free and bring about his healing. Let’s look closely at each of these three things.

The Psalmist has a great revelation to share with us from this passage. There are 3 Revelations which the Psalmist tries to press home in this singular verse. 1/ A nation who recognizes God as its owner 2/ A nation who recognizes the Lordship of God. 3/ A nation being the Choice of God, the Elects of God. The Israelites are fortunate to enjoy these 3 privileges. No other nations of the world does. All the Earth belongs to God, (Ex. 19:5) He created it all but not all nations of the world give him this recognition. Many nations recognize Him as the Creator but do not agree to His Lordship. His interest is not considered in the affairs of the nations; even though many mention God in their national anthems they don’t mean it, However, the grace is open to all to be His choice of His inheritance.

The fourth major concern of society is the appointment of kings or rulers (Deut. 17:14-20). These are the only laws dealing with kings in the first five books of the Bible. Moses predicted that someday lying out in the future Israel would desire a king (Deut. 17:14). The people would approach their leaders, requesting a king to rule over them like all the nations that surrounded them. They would desire the royal pomp and power, the authority and rule of a king. Moses declared the establishment of the law: the king must be appointed by God Himself (Deut. 17:15). It is important to note a significant fact: God does not tie His people to one form of government.

God delivered the Israelites from the enslavement of Egypt (a symbol of the world), and He led them through forty years of wilderness wanderings. At last, they are poised to enter the Promised Land of God. But before they can cross the Jordan to lay claim to their promised inheritance, they must be prepared—spiritually prepared. To prepare the people, Moses preached a series of messages that were grouped under three basic subjects: First, the need to remember the lessons from history (Deut. 1:6-4:43). Second, the need to remember the Ten Commandments and the laws that are to govern man and society (Deut. 4:44-26:19).

For several weeks, we had the privilege of hearing sermons that showed us the will of God for our lives and families, particularly in the areas of marriage and parenting. The question that we need to ask ourselves is this: “What am I going to do about all that has been revealed to me as the will of God for my life?” Contrary to what most people think, it is not enough to hear and know the Word of God; we must live and do the Word of God. The Lord Jesus expects everyone who hears His Word to do it (Matthew 12:50; Luke 6: 46 – 49).
