Topic: SOMEONE MUST DIE FOR ME 1
Bible Reading: Esther 7:9-10
📖9….”And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.
📖10….So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.”
🔥The principle established by God to save the first couple in Eden, when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, was for an innocent creature to die in their place. This is seen in the death of the innocent animal, whose skins were used as coverings for Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:21. The hiding of Adam and Eve from God in Genesis 3:8, was a kind of cry for help, which God heeded by the coats of skins from an animal. God has continued to apply this spiritual principle ever since man continues to miss the mark; to bring him back to the rightful path by a substitute.
🔥🔥It is one thing to cry for help, but it is a different thing for your cry to be heard. God may hear with an innocent substitute, he may also hear with the guilty substitute. When Joseph died, and a new king arose in Egypt that had no respect for Joseph and his fellow Israelites, he came with afflictions and suppressions. The Jews though cried then, but their cries were not heard. But for their cries to be heard, that king had to die according to Exodus 2:23, for another Pharaoh, called Meneptah to rule. His rulership came with worst bondage that led to more cries by the Israelites, whose cries eventually got to God.
🔥🔥🔥This principle of death for one to be delivered, sometimes is retroactive in nature. It comes back against whoever has plotted death or problems for God’s children. In such situation, the plotter is used by God as the substitute. In our text from Esther 7:9-10, when Haman was preparing the gallows for Mordecai, he never knew he was digging his own grave; until he was hung on the gallows. Beloveth, someone planning your death and failure is already destined to die that death, and fall in that planned trap for you. Your cry in prayers to God, has drawn God’s attention to your rescue. Rejoice, for your Haman has died for you.
🙏Heavenly king of glory, search me out and cover me with your Son’s blood whenever am hiding from you because of sins, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, hear my cry for help with a substitutionary solution, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, let all that are plotting and planning my downfall and death, pay with their own lives in Jesus’ name.
