Sermon Series: Esther; The Unseen Sovereignty

The book of Esther is the remarkable re-telling of the story of a young woman named Esther who is one of many Jews living in Persia. Through extraordinary circumstances, Esther is moved from obscurity to being the Queen of Persia where she has the opportunity to save her people from being destroyed. As she navigates a series of events she is faced with the decision to save her people but in the process risks losing her own life. One of only two books in the Bible that is named after a woman and the only book that does not have a single reference to God, the book of Esther silently displays His incredible sovereignty. God's handiwork is on display in this book as we have the unique perspective of looking back on history and peering into this story of one woman's faith. The Book of Esther is incredibly relevant as it teaches us that God is faithfully working in our lives even when we do not see it.

Act Six; The Fall of Haman

Act Seven; Haman’s Plot Reversed

Victories in a marriage, work situation or family is truly exciting. No greater victory has come to those who believe in Jesus than our salvation. When we overcome the adversity of hardships, troubles and disease, we are often faced with the residual effects and the...

Act Eight; The Jews are Victorious
