Memorise: Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever; a sceptre of justice will be the sceptre of your kingdom. – Hebrews 1:8
Please Read: Esther 5:1-3
5:1 Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king’s house, over against the king’s house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house.
5:2 And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre.
5:3 Then said the king unto her, What wilt thou, queen Esther? and what is thy request? it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.
Bible In One Year: Numbers 3; 1 Corinthians 16
During a Holy Ghost service in Redemption Camp, the Lord said someone was there whom the enemies had killed but because the person had attended the program, death had been cancelled. Among the people there was a woman to whom some people owed a lot of money. After the program, they kidnapped her, threw her into the boot of their car and drove towards a forest where they planned to kill her.
On their way, because God had cancelled death plan for this woman, the policeman at check point refused the bribe and insisted on seeing what was in their boot. Realising their game was lost, they fled. The policeman then opened the boot, saw the woman and released her. Whatever the enemy had planned, the Lord will make a way of escape for you. Praise the Lord!
