A Day Of Days…

In the Book of Esther, Haman builds a gallows to hang Mordecai. But that same gallows is used to hang Haman himself. Haman is a type of the enemy. Mordecai, as the hero, is a type of savior.

So what does Haman’s gallows reveal? A fascinating thing – the word used for the gallows in the Book of Esther, is the Hebrew word “Aitz.” That same word also means “the tree.”

Jesus was crucified on “the tree” – the “Aitz.” The enemy seeks to use all things for evil and He seeks the destruction of the Savior, Jesus. And thus he sought to destroy Jesus through the crucifixion. The ultimate gallows of the enemy is the cross.

Yet just as Haman’s gallows were turned around – and ended up destroying Haman – so also it is with the cross. The cross has the power to turn around all evil against itself for the purposes of God.

So don’t ever be afraid of the cross, or of dying to self. For it’s there where all evil ends, and all good begins – for the cross is the cosmic gallows of Haman.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1Cor 1:18

Today, bring every problem and every negative thing, every issue to the cross, and trust God to turn everything around for good.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
