Esther 5:8 If I have found favour in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition, and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I shall prepare for them, and I will do to morrow as the king hath said.
Just like Haman had manipulated the king to get the decision he wanted Esther now moves towards a remedy for the curse put on her people. Esther has a banquet. She has pleased the king greatly as a wife. She plans such a wonderful time that the king offers her anything she might want.
She only asks for another banquet. Then king sees that she is super kind. He agrees. In the next banquet, she will spring the trap for Haman. He will be in complete shock when he realizes that he is not being honored but will die.
Be careful about the wining and dining that is offered. What is the purpose? What are they trying to accomplish? Don’t forget to think. Don’t lose your head. You must make decisions based on truth. Do not let yourself be manipulated. Don’t fall into the trap.
There is so much wisdom we need to learn here. Satan knows how to offer you a good life. He will drown your perspective in luxury to get you not to see your end. He will cause you to think you have it so good when he knows you will soon die.
Get saved today. See reality. Look to the future. Where will you spend eternity?
