ESTHER 7:5-6 : Then King Ahasuerus answered and said to Queen Esther, “Who is he, and where is
he, who would dare presume in his heart to do such a thing?” And Esther said, “The adversary and
enemy is this wicked Haman!” So Haman was terrified before the king and queen.
One of the early television courtroom dramas was “Perry Mason”.” Each week Mr. Mason faced a
baffling mystery that required solving before the end of the hour.
Often the conclusion came as the guilty party sat in the witness stand. Buffeted by the astute lawyer’s
penetrating questions, the criminal’s carefully constructed facade would crumble and his guilt would
be exposed.
A similar drama took place in the palace of King Ahasuerus. Just when it seemed that Haman’s
wickedness would prevail, the tables were turned and his evil plot was revealed.
When Esther pointed to him as the one who dreamed up the diabolical plan to destroy the Jewish
people, Haman plunged from the height of arrogant pride to the depth of abject terror.
But such moments of stark truth are not limited to history or television. The Bible reveals that we all
have a future appointment with God where He will reveal to us everything we have said, thought or
Jesus said, “For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.
Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken
in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the house tops” (Luke 12:2-3).
Now is the time to prepare for that future appointment. Be careful about idle words you might speak
or thoughtless deeds you might commit. Live in such a way that when the secrets of your life are
revealed, they are either harmless or covered by the blood of Christ.
