Welcome to Empowered Bible Study Ministries

Bible study is essential to our Christian walk. As we study God's Word, our personal relationship with God grows deeper and deeper. It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives. This is what has inspired me to do an online Bible study.

Many years ago my husband introduced me to a commentary on the book of Colossians and I was so blessed as the Scripture came to life before my very eyes. Since that day we have developed an extensive library and enjoy studying God's Word.

I have prepared some Bible studies that I would like to share with you. My prayer is that they will bless you as much as they have blessed me in preparing them. I pray your life is touched and that it would inspire you to live every moment of every day for Christ.

Cannot Thwart God's Plan

The third step that Haman took as he executed his plan to destroy the Jewish people is found in Esther 3:12-14 ~

Having received permission by the king, Haman immediately set out to formulate the decree to exterminate the entire Jewish race and immediately spread the word. The decree was translated into the dialects of all the people throughout the vast empire, and swift messengers were sent to carry it into all the provinces. The annihilation of the Jews, both young and old was to be done in one day. Notice in verse 13 in says "...in one day on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month..." Then Verse 14 states a copy of the document was to be issued as law in every province, being published for all people, that they should be ready for that day.

Isn't it interesting in ancient times how fast Haman was able to prepare, translate, and distribute this decree. He had a passion and he went after that passion. My friend, what are you passionate about? Just think with all the technology we have today what we can do to spread God's word!

Haman may be a very wicked, cruel, hard-hearted person. But he cannot thwart God's plan. Before this plan was ever established, God knew it and set Esther and Mordecai in positions to be able to stop the annihilation of the Jewish people.
