Esther: The Privilege Of Providence

Don’t Forget!

Esther 9:17-10:3 — This is the final sermon in Pastor Brendan’s study through Esther. The last part of the book describes the institution of the Feast of Purim. It was designed as a memorial of the Jews’ deliverance from Haman’s wicked decree. As we consider the details of this feast we are reminded of the vital…

The D-Day

Esther 9 — The D-Day had finally arrived. The thirteenth day of the twelfth month – the day marked out for the destruction of the Jews. What would happen? Who would triumph? Would this be a day of death or a day of deliverance for God’s people?

Rejoice In The Lord

Esther 8 — Haman was now dead but the decree to destroy the Jews still stood. How could an irrevocable decree be reversed? What would happen? Who would stand up? How would God work? And what can we learn? These questions are answered as Pastor Brendan continues our study.

Don’t Miss God In The Details

Esther 6 — In the unfolding story of Esther, this chapter contains a series of events that highlight the sovereign hand of God in protecting His people. Haman is unexpectedly humbled and Mordecai is surprisingly exalted. Listen as Brendan takes us through the chapter, bringing us some wonderful words of encouragement along the way.

Let It Go

Esther 5 — The inability to forgive and move on is something that plagues our world. It robs people of their peace and joy and it ruins relationships.

What Am I Born For?

Esther 4 — What am I born for? …This question is answered for Esther in this chapter which really is the turning point in the story. Brendan explains this part of narrative focusing on the providence of God and he leads us to think about this question for ourselves.

The Accuser & The Advocate

Esther 3:7-15 — Haman, having devised a plan to exterminate the Jews, only had one hurdle to jump over in order to make his plan a reality and that was winning the King’s approval. In this study, Brendan takes us through Haman’s manipulative and persuasive pitch to King Xerxes.

Same Enemy New Name

Esther 3:1-6 — Right from the Garden of Eden, Satan had endeavoured to destroy the Messianic line, the “seed of the woman” who would one day crush his head. …The first two chapters of Esther have set the scene, the opening verses in chapter three reveal yet another episode in Satan’s war against God’s plan…

It’s Not Fair

Esther 2:19-23 — These verses record a critical incident in the unfolding story of Esther.  Two of King Xerxes’ most trusted servants were planning to assassinate him and their plans were discovered by Esther’s uncle, Mordecai. What would he do with this information? What would happen afterwards? …As these questions are answered, we discover some vital…

God’s Choice For Queen

Esther 2:13-18 — In these verses we find the culmination of the King Xerxes’ plan for choosing a new queen.  It was a cruel and immoral plan and yet God used it to place just the right person, in just the right position to save His people.
