The lesson that stood out from these verses is this,- though the decree was issued and the Jews had been given authority to fight and annihilate anyone who would attack them, this was not to happen until a certain appointed day. Why was it supposed to be that way? Why another day? Why not on the day the decree was issued?
You know why-Esther 8:12-13 say "12 The day appointed for the Jews to do this in all the provinces of King Xerxes was the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar. 13 A copy of the text of the edict was to be issued as law in every province and made known to the people of every nationality so that the Jews would be ready on that day to avenge themselves on their enemies. "
- The decree had to be made known to the people of every nationality
- The Jews had to get ready for that day
- Also, probably to tell the enemies of Jews ...beware, the Jews are now empowered to defend themselves
Conclusion:The lesson points out two special messages it hints at the Big day when Satan and his hosts will be fought and defeated once and for all and all this time we have is that we may get ourselves ready and bring in all the souls we can into the Kingdom of God by letting them know of the awesome decree giving humans(sons and daughters of Adam and Eve) the power to fight and resist any enemy that attacks them, through the sacrifice of the Son of God
In a more specific manner it empowers a believer in Jesus Christ with the message that , if you've been dragged down by situations of defeat through the enemy's attack on our life, be it spiritual, physical, mental or any other, we have a New Decree through our Lord Jesus Christ which has turned the tables on the enemy and empowered us even now to fight back and that THERE IS A DAY APPOINTED FOR US TO SEE VICTORY in every situation in our lives. So if there has been something you have been petitioning before our Lord the King, take heart a day of its fulfilment has already been declared, victory is inevitable.
Now what ...its for us to be ready for that day of victory, it will not come without a fight and we've got to be strong that we may be able to stand the enemy's last attack on our life, the final moment of battle before we become victors...so GET READY
