Bride of Christ Arise. They shall mount up with wings of eagles………………………..
Before the King and His throne,
Haman’s plot has been made known.
Haman is not good or wanted here,
he is an enemy who’s end is near.
But God has raised up such a One,
The bride of His only begotten Son.
His Scepter extended on Golgotha’s Hill,
The Cross of Christ it is for real.
He knew how
To get His people to pray,
By fasting and prayer
Did open the way!
Failed for sure,
Because God is there
even seemingly obscure.
God didn’t let
The wicked win,
For such a time as this
Bride of Christ, rise in Him!

Purim begins tonight at sundown, and our Jewish friends will be celebrating their deliverance from the plot and plans of Haman. The reading the book of Esther, twice daily is the custom during this celebration. I believe we should remember Mordecai’s words to Queen Esther. When the Jewish people (her people) were being threatened and in danger of being destroyed and wiped out while in Ancient Persia, I am reminded of the very things that are happening right now in our land, in the United States of America. Can you see the comparisons? Anti Semitism is now funded by our tax dollars as we pay salaries for congress and house representatives who are very anti Semitic and do not support nor uphold our very own constitution, How can you be employed by a Country that you do not defend their constitution? We the people of the United States, what has gone wrong? Abortion and murder of the innocent being called rights, the second amendment being threatened, standing with Christian beliefs is called hate speech. Have we been negligent on our watch? I believe without a doubt the answer is a resounding Yes.
In two thousand sixteen The Lord spoke to me and said to me, “The Church is Esther”. I was like of course it is. Those plotting to take God out of our schools and universities cannot truly block God’s power. They can only close the door on His presence. We as believers in Jesus Christ, pure blood bought believers, we are the power carriers. But are we using this power and the grant or rite of passage given to us?
I saw and I knew that the scepter the king held out to Esther is a beautiful picture of the Cross of Jesus held out that welcomed us into the kingdom and is offered still to others during this dispensation. We are in the ‘church age’ or the dispensation of God’s great grace. Think about it.
We are the bride of Christ, The Church of the Firstborn. We are not a beaten down battered wife. We are the bride of Christ Church, and we need to yield our rights as the bride. Who knows Church “but that we have come to the kingdom for such a time as this.”
We (The Church) have been called by The True God, who reconciled us (believers) through The Cross of Christ “for such a time as this.”
During a very supernatural time of prayers and illumination I knew The Lord was saying He isn’t judging the world, it is already judged. We as His bride and representative in the earth will be held accountable for allowing these things to happen. That’s pretty heavy, right? We have a responsibility to occupy until He comes.
How could we be so ignorant? This morning I thought of the wheat and tares. The scripture that came to mind was, “but while they slept.” (Matthew 13:5 Matthew 13:36-43) Church we must be fully awake and aware of the conditions of our country. We are fast losing ground as we nothing about this and those yet to be saved; their blood is on our hands.
In the book of Esther God is obscure and never mentioned by Name, but through the faithfulness of the kings bride, God’s chosen people were spared. The diabolical plot of Haman, who by the way was a descendant of Amalek from the Amalekites, was unveiled and came back on his own head and his family.
Esther 4:14 JUB
For if thou art silent at this time, then enlargement and deliverance shall arise to the Jews from another place, but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed; and who knows whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
Psalm 23:4 GNB
Even if I go through the deepest darkness, I will not be afraid, LORD, for you are with me. Your shepherd’s rod and staff protect me.
God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift His countenance upon you, and give you Shalom.
Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
