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.

Life in God's hands

Having just issued the decree to exterminate a whole race of people, we see in Esther 3:15 the King and Haman sat down to drink. Can you imagine the wicked evil hearts these men had, they were totally callous, insensitive and uncaring about the action just taken.

Then notice, at the end of the verse it said the city of Shushan was perplexed. Confusion, fear and alarm filled the many populations. Can you imagine what was going through their mind as they received this decree.

Haman may have thought he sealed the death warrant for the Jewish people, but in reality as we will see later in scripture, Haman actually sealed his own death warrant. My friend, there are billions of lost sinners in today's world under a sentence of eternal death. They are standing in line with you at the grocery store, at the post office, in your family, at work and may even be sitting next to you in church. But how often do we notice them, how often do we miss opportunities because we are not open to the voice of the Lord speaking to us to say something to them? How often are we afraid of how someone will react if we mention Christ? We can all say we have missed opportunities.

As Haman set a decree under the king's authority to seal the death of the Jewish people, Satan has decreed the death of the human race. He doesn't want us to be saved as Haman didn't want the Jews to be saved. We must be available like Mordecai and Esther were to save those who are destined to eternal death.

We will continue next in Esther chapter 4 as we continue to see how Mordecai and Esther react to the news of the Decree.
