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.

What a day may bring forth

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth." ~ Proverbs 27:1

Haman is soon to find out just how true this verse is! We left off in our study as Haman is feeling as if he is on top of the world. His ego is growing every moment; however, despite his position, wealth, and power he could not get past his hatred for Mordecai ~ Esther 5:13 "Yet all this avails me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's gate." Seeing how this has affected Haman, his wife and friends give him advice. Let's look at verse 14 to see what they had to say: Esther 5:14 "Then his wife Zeresh and all his friends said to him, "Let a gallows be made, fifty cubits high, and in the morning suggest to the king that Mordecai be hanged on it; then go merrily with the king to the banquet." And the thing pleased Haman; so he had the gallows made."

Haman's wife and friends were no better than himself, they were just as wicked. Feeling so confident that Haman had a direct line to the king that he would do anything he wanted, they set out to kill Mordecai once and for all. Not only did they want to kill him but they wanted to make him an example for all to make sure that they show Haman respect and fear what he may do to them by hanging Mordecai. So Haman was pleased by the advice and ordered the fifty cubit high gallows to be made and planned to bring his suggestion to the King in the morning before the banquet. Little did he know God had other plans for Mordecai.

"As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive." ~ Genesis 50:20
