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.

Prepared to meet the King

Esther chapters 5-7 mark the climax of the book of Esther. Here the tables are turned and evil is overcome by good. God's people are preserved through an unlikely set of circumstances. It is obvious that it is the sovereignty of the Lord working to save the Jewish people from annihilation.

Esther has made the courageous decision to go to the king to plead for mercy for her people, the Jews even if it means she will perish. Let's open our Bible to Esther 5:1 "Now it happened on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king's palace, across from the king's house, while the king sat on his royal throne in the royal house, facing the entrance of the house."

So with the God of Israel at her side, Esther prepares to go before the king. She puts on her royal robes. It was not only natural but, on such occasions, highly proper that the queen should decorate herself in a style becoming her exalted position. Remember she had not seen the king in 30 days; she wanted to gain his approval to hear her request so she presented herself fully robed in her royal garments. So here we have Queen Esther now standing fully dressed in her royal garments in the Inner Court waiting for king Ahasuerus to extend the golden scepter to her.

My friend, isn't it wonderful that we don't have to fear coming to the King of Kings. We can enter His presence 24/7, all we have to do is call upon His name. Join me as we continue our study in our next post.
