Esther follow up

To all who have read ‘Esther and the son of my right hand,’ thank you.  The  ‘son’ here of course was Mr. Netanyahu,  as he came to the U.S. amid word wide hostilities.

We know the scriptures are crystal clear as to the purposes of God, that not one word will fail, and that the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob have not been forgotten by He who does not sleep, and even in their unbelief will God’s word be true.

To many, this word is a savor of life, and of course to others the same word is a savor unto death. The commenting by you on the initial post was some of the finest, spiritual, supportive, and well-ordered regarding Esther, Mordecai, Netanyahu, the U.S., and of course God’s word, all in one place.  Really, I do appreciate all your time and thoughtful attention.

Some of you also know, that there is a cry of ‘my free speech is denied,’ and ‘why do you moderate, what are you afraid of?’ This tune is old, and to they who appreciate the savor of life, this will make perfect sense, and perhaps you may be inclined to borrow an idea or two if you have not considered it already.

Most people do not even know there is a policy at this site, and that is actually good,  but I have made no apology for stating this:

Please do not cry ‘free speech’ when your pics, vids, and links of insolence toward the name of Christ are trashed.

 In addition, assassination of the word of God will not get free PR at my expense. Profane and vain babblings? they will be shunned.

The heading of this site clearly reads: ‘Blending the issues of life with the truth of scripture.’  This is not a home to the ‘untruths of scripture.’  Sure, there are many who cut, paste, and repeat: ‘Moses was a myth, Abraham never lived, there was no city of Jericho, and yawn, yawn, and yawn.’  While these opinions are visitors,  the references that support these perversions do not get a permanent home.

What? I am supposed to be a librarian of sorts and archive all the ISBN numbers and sources for the great society of unbelief? No thank you, they are easy enough to find without my presenting them on a platter.

A vid that deserves ‘honorable mention’ came through, and you tell me if the trash can was too good a place. It was supposed to be I guess, humorous, but it was not funny. (someone observed you can tell a lot about a person by what they find amusing.) Two characters of mid east descent were having a discussion with English subtitles, and Mordecai was telling Esther what a good idea it was to marry the Persian king.

Of course the theme was the hatred of the Jews, and how Esther was simply being a ‘whore’ to save her people. Indeed, the suggestion was made that this young Jewish girl usurped the kingdom of Persia, and thrust herself on the king, and that he had no choice but to obey her.  May I repeat:

Assassination of the word of God will not get free pr at my expense.

(can you say trash bin?)

Meanwhile, the word of God clearly says that young Hadassah did nothing to advance her state, and she simply obtained favor in the sight of all that looked upon her.  Finally, king Ahasuerus also showed her grace and favour, and set the royal crown upon her head. Esther had no clue what would befall her, and had no motive, as she was a guileless woman.

Are you aware friend, of any other book or accounting of history that is so reviled? And does not the very book that people spend a lifetime denouncing, also say with all authority that God’s people will be mocked, maligned, and even hated simply for believing what is true?

Esther, Hadassah a whore? May God help a person who welcomed this thought. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob through the name and worth of the Lord Christ, open the eyes from darkness to light, that such a person may obtain inheritance among the sanctified.

 

(This post takes nothing from women who were forgiven by God of indiscretions and brought into favour. It has everything to do with the intentional maligning of scripture and berating a godly young woman)

    Well said Color Storm and good tips too on screening out false and harmful information, something unfortunately I may have to start incorporating on my own site if a certain visitor keeps returning. What I find interesting is why those who are openly hostile to Christian belief feel the need to combat it so much? It’s odd really and I think demonstrates affably the stale and shrunken world of a faithless life; no humility, always something to prove and absolute blindness of their own ignorance.

      Good observations Tricia, tkx, gotta be wise about certain schemes. Its one thing to allow overt comments, its another to place a welcome mat for the url’s.

      Indeed, I want no part of possibly offending ‘one of the little ones’ who believes. Your last sentence is loaded, well done, maybe a full a post for ya 😉

      There are only a handful, and its the baggage that goes with them. This last vid is proof positive of some bad liquor.

      People post so OTHERS may get their shot at unbelief; anything to extend a conversation, anything to promote godlessness, anything that would appear to lend credibility to the great nothingness.

      Some will say, ‘your comments do not get moderated.’ Duh. But then again, many do.

      But why would a person moderate light? Because they loved darkness? Sounds scriptural…..

        I have spent much time in prayer about how to handle comments. Still not sure I have arrived at the final solution, just play it post by post for now. The folks bothering me lately are pretty tame so not been a big deal. Apparently my work schedule of late has made me less fun on the blog world.

          The thing is brother, the victory by some is simply to have their ‘sources’ cited, not for your sake, but for a possible de-con trainee.

          No need to help in that regard. Some will say: ‘See, this man is a well reputed scholar, and he said there is no Jericho! He and his team said there is no Nazareth! blah, blah, blah.

          Now this post here, Esther is not reliable! The subject matter is suspicious! Esther was diabolical. yak, yak, yak.

          From such, turn away.

          Really ARch? And who do you deal with here that you feel is not sincere and just looking for kudos? I must have missed it, because the believers I know on here are just as sincere as the day is long.

          And yes…I am quite sincere. Want to know why? Because I know what I was saved from…and who did it. I know that only a few short years ago I was about as vociferous as you in my mockery and so forth.

          The beautiful thing is Arch…it’s not over until it’s over. Until you draw your final breath there is still time for you to stop shaking your fist in God’s face and come to Him. Why don’t you?

          How is that pulse by the way…POOF!

  6. Well said. Esther is amazing. I’ve seen movies about her, read scripture. What always impresses me is how powerless she was and yet so powerful at the same time. She really has no authority, the king doesn’t have to listen to her, she can be executed at any time. Guile? Who are they kidding? She risked it all on a wing and a prayer.

    Also, if the bible were nothing but a book of fairy tales, why would it be banned in 52 countries? Are people imprisoned and executed over Grimm’s stories? Aesop’s Fables? People don’t hear the lack of logic within their own words. The very attempt to defile scripture betrays a belief that it has a power that you fear.

      For example, IB, when was the last time you heard of anyone shunned by their community and/or family – or for that matter, have their comments deleted from blogsites – because they professed not to believe that a tortoise raced a hare and won, or that Hansel and Gretel pushed a witch into an oven in her house made of gingerbread?

      But let me say that no man was ever swallowed by a great fish, lived in the fish’s stomach acid for three days, then was regurgitated onto a beach, and watch how fast CS deletes my comment!

        I guess you’ve never read my blog. The truth of the matter is that ostracisizing, bullying, shunning behavior is the nature of human beings, yes, even in the secular world. Perhaps even more so.

        Christ calls us to our higher selves and teaches us another way. That does not mean we must all tolerate boorish behavior from those who have allegedly been wounded by other Christians and now seek endless retaliation for real or perceived hurts.

        Do you know how Socrates died? His crime? He asked questions.

        When people seek the truth and speak of the truth they find, there will be people who object.

        You don’t think there are people who don’t like Grimm’s stories or Aesop’s Fables? What happens in places where those in power don’t like such books? The leader simply order the removal of the books they don’t approve and replace the “bad books” with those they favor.

        Why is there a difference with the Bible? The Bible has more ardent fans. To remove the Bible and keep it removed requires the martyrdom of its fans.

  7. Israel has a prominent role in Bible prophecy and I pray the United States does not abandon the nation of Israel, God certainly has not and He will not. These were two excellent posts, CS and Esther was an amazing and courageous woman who loved God more than her own life; I am grateful her story is preserved for us in the Word of Truth.
    I am glad you continue to write and share God’s wisdom and insights.

  10. Colorstorm you have been given a great gift–a gift of Truth. You therefore are to take said gift going forward, sharing it with any and all who come your way. It is not then for you to have to defend this gift, for it is a gift given to you by one who is Greater. You, as others before you, are a messenger. . .a messenger of the Truth. Here we must remind those who happen here to this post by either choice or happenstance that it is not profitable, beneficial or worthy to “shoot the messenger” —the gift, the Truth, will continue forward with or without this one messenger, as others will come along as messengers as well. For the Truth will not and cannot be denied.
    Those who come here to “pick a fight” should simply go elsewhere as they are free to do so, no one is forcing them to read this Truth. Is it then because the Truth has pricked something deep within them that causes them to stir, to feel, to rebel?
    Man has grown to believe simply in man—a false truth that will quickly pass away.
    The battles continue to be waged but the War has already been won.
    Truth does not confine, but rather casts aside the chains of confinement–setting free all who proclaim its Power.
    Blessings to the messengers

    HEY ARCH: Perhaps you should read carefully the 2 posts you are commenting on as they address perfectly WHY your so called hero scholar friends are not getting air time.

    You remind me of a kid trying to shoot spitballs at the moon and actually think you are making a dent. Esther was a good woman, the narrative is pure; people are commenting on her goodness, but no, you come along and once more try to break through and steal; then you complain when people don’t join you in your theft.

    Do you ever read the posts looking to understand, or simply to attack?
