Vengeance is Mine
Esther 4-6/John 5-6

How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


OT

4:14 If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. What’s more, who can say but that you have been elevated to the palace for just such a time as this?

NT

6:29 Jesus told them, “This is what God wants you to do: Believe in the one he has sent.

:40 For it is my Fathers will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life–that I should raise them at the last day.


OT Flash Points

Mordecai challenges Esther to ask the King for mercy for the Jews
“For such a time as this!”
Haman is ordered to honor Mordecai, the man he was going to murder

NT Flash Points

The lame man is healed on the Sabbath
The Son of God needn’t witness about Himself, the Spirit takes care of that
The work of God is to believe in the One He sent
The will of Father – “eat my flesh and drink My blood”
?? Parable too vivid?? Apparently so. John 6:66


Perspective

They that wait – shall walk and not faint
Not “be spiritual” but walk before Me
Be quiet and wait for the direction of His presence
