Anger subsided

Hello, God has given me something in Esther 7:10 which says,

“So they impaled Haman on the pole he had set up for Mordecai. Then the king’s fury subsided.”

The King: At the second banquet, Esther asked the King for her life, and for the lives of her people. She said that they would be annihilated. The King asked who had done it, and she told the king that Haman did it. The King went out to the palace garden, but Haman stayed behind, begging for his life. When the king came back in, Haman had fallen onto the chair Esther was reclining at. The King exclaimed, “Will he even molest the queen while she is with me in my house?”. When he said this, they covered Haman’s face. Then one of the Eunuchs said that there was a pole 50 cubits high. So, the king told them to impale Haman on it. When he was impaled on it, the king’s fury subsided. After the death of Haman, the King was no longer furious.

Christians: Christians are saved. Jesus has saved us from our sins. He has given His life for us. But, unbelievers do not believe in Him. They are not going to heaven. So if you’re an unbeliever, then  why don’t you join us? Why don’t you become saved from sins, and live in Christ? Jesus is mighty to save, and He has saved believers, and we are going to heaven. But unbelievers are not. So why not join us, and love God. He can and will save you, so why not come. He will give you inexpressible joy. He will love you, and save you. Why not come to Christ?

What to do: Here is one thing that we are supposed to do as Christians: Love your neighbor, and your enemy. Haman had planned to kill the Jews, but he was the one who died. The Bible says to love our neighbors and our enemies. If Haman had bowed to God and told everyone else to do the same, instead of bowing to him, then he might not have died like that. We should love our enemies. Jesus loved His enemies so much, that He actually gave His life for them, to save us from sins. He has given His life to save us from sins. Thank You, Jesus! He has saved us from our sins, He has loved us, so we can love our enemies.

God: God gave His own son for us. He has loved us, by giving His son for us. Praise His name, for His life and salvation. Jesus gave His life for us, and loved us. Give thanks to Him with all of You, for He became our sacrifice. He gave His life as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. He loved us so much! “Praise Him, praise Him, Jesus our blessed redeemer…”. He has loved us so much. Thank You, Jesus. He has loved His enemies, aka us, and He has saved us so that we might to go heaven.

Application: How does Esther 7:10 apply to us? We were like the people. We were going to die. God was angry. But, Jesus came down to earth, and He took God’s wrath on Himself for us. Once Jesus had died, The King’s anger subsided. He welcomed us into the kingdom. He saved us by giving His son for us, and then He welcomed us into the kingdom of Heaven. He has saved us from sins. Jesus had never sinned in His life, but He took on all our sins. God saw our sins on Him.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your son for us. Thank You for putting Your wrath on Him. Please help me to love You more, and draw close to You. Please help me to grow in You, and be more like You. Please help me to long to be in Your word. Thank You for making me Your daughter, and Thank You for loving me so much. Please strengthen me in You. Thank You for accepting me into the Kingdom. Thank You for all the blessings You have given me. Please help me to be more thankful. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
