Acts swiftly and on time

Esther 3:13    Letters were sent by couriers to all the king's provinces to destroy, to kill and to annihilate all the Jews, both young and old, women and children, in one day,

15        The couriers went out impelled by the king's command while the decree was issued at the citadel in Susa; and while the king and Haman sat down to drink, the city of Susa was in confusion.

A verdict had been signed to kill all the Jews: both young, old, women and children on ONE SINGLE DAY.  The words one single day caught my attention! Are you listening to me?  The devil is acting swiftly and shrewdly , how about us?  We are so lethargic when it comes to attending night prayer, fasting prayer and early morning prayer, we keep postponing it but today comes a warning that we need to act swiftly without procrastination.

Everything was well organized by Haman, the enemy of the Jews who sent couriers to deliver the signed decree.  One man got up to fast and pray at such time as this, say amen.  His name is Mordecai.  We need more of Mordecais’ today for the kingdom of God to act swiftly to save the children of God.

“Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).

Someone said: Tomorrow is the barred and bolted door that has shut many people out of Heaven.


ESTHER 4:1 Mordecai fasted:

Now listen! The book of Esther says, ‘the city of Sushan was in confusion.” (Esther 3:15) Mordecai wore sackcloth and fasted against the evil, demonic forces that was coming against the people of God. He knew this could be broken only through fasting and on his knees. Let me tell you friends, certain things cannot be amended, rectified or set right through arguments, quarrel and reasoning – you got to fast. Amen

We need to be sensitive to the voice of God and act swiftly, are you listening to me?  I had gone to another city along with my family for a wedding, midnight the Lord stirred my spirit , reminded me about a particular family and said “arrange for water baptism for the elderly couples.”  Midnight I sent whatsapp text and conveyed the matter to the daughter in law.  Next day we arranged for water baptism even though it was raining very heavily.  Exactly 6 months after that, the elderly woman who took water baptism had a brain stroke, her compete left side has been paralyzed now, she is unable to walk or talk.  I thank God for obeying His voice that night!
