  2. 2. Obey God and leave the consequences to Him
  3. 3. Story # 1 - ‘DO WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU TO DO’ Story # 2 - “HE WHO HEARS MY WORDS AND PUTS THEM INTO PRATICE IS LIKE THE MAN WHO BUILDS HIS HOUSE UPON THE ROCK.” Story # 3 – BORN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
  4. 4. Esther 4:14 (NIV) 14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?"
  5. 5. Esther 4:15-16 (NIV) 15 Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: 16 "Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.“
  6. 6. Esther 6:13 (NIV) 13 and told Zeresh his wife and all his friends everything that had happened to him. His advisers and his wife Zeresh said to him, "Since Mordecai, before whom your downfall has started, is of Jewish origin, you cannot stand against him--you will surely come to ruin!“
  7. 7. Obey God and leave the consequences to Him
  8. 8. Exodus 17:8-9 (NIV) 8 The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. 9 Moses said to Joshua, "Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.“
  9. 9. Exodus 17:15-16 (NIV) 15 Moses built an altar and called it The Lord is my Banner. 16 He said, "For hands were lifted up to the throne of the Lord. The Lord will be at war against the Amalekites from generation to generation."
  10. 10. WALK IN OBEDIENCE 1. FEARLESSNESS ‘if I die, I die – but I am going to see the king’ 2. DESTINY ‘born for such a time as this’ 3. SPIRITUAL WARFARE
  11. 11. Fast of preparation & obedience Esther 4:15-17 (NIV) 15 Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: 16 "Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish." 17 So Mordecai went away and carried out all of Esther's instructions.
  12. 12. PURPOSE Shift the story line over our lives, our church and our nation. This is God’s appointed time to enter the inner courts of the King, just like Esther and petition for the plans of the enemy over our lives, our churches, our nation to be reversed
