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.

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 was  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).

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. Mark it!

D. L. Moody held his usual service the Sunday evening the fire broke out.  At the close of the service, he asked his congregation to evaluate their relationship to Christ and to return the following week to make a decision.  This, he thought, would give them time to really think things over and result in a lasting decision.  He wanted to make sure that they were sure about accepting Jesus Christ, not wanting to pressure them into making a decision they wouldn't stick with. While Ira Sankey was singing the closing hymn, it was drowned out by the sound of fire trucks and church bells.  To his dying day, Moody regretted delaying their decision to the following Sunday. Don’t delay!
