1 Beauty and the Christian Woman Lucille Lau The Esther Challenge

2 The Splendor of the Persian Kingdom

3 Esther 1:1 This is what happened during the time of Xerxes, the Xerxes who ruled over 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush:

4 Esther 1:4 For a full 180 days he displayed the vast wealth of his kingdom and the splendor and glory of his majesty.

5 Esther 1:10 On the seventh day, when King Xerxes was in high spirits from wine, he commanded the seven eunuchs who served himMehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, Abagtha, Zethar and Carcas

6 Esther 1:11 to bring before him Queen Vashti, wearing her royal crown, in order to display her beauty to the people and nobles, for she was lovely to look at.

7 The Queens Defiance Rebellion brings demotion

8 Esther 1:12 But when the attendants delivered the kings command, Queen Vashti refused to come. Then the king became furious and burned with anger.

9 Esther 1:19 Therefore, if it pleases the king, let him issue a royal decree and let it be written in the laws of Persia and Media, which cannot be repealed, that Vashti is never again to enter the presence of King Xerxes.

10 Also let the king give her royal position to someone else who is better than she.

11 The Miss Universe Beauty Pageant

12 Esther 2:2 Then the kings personal attendants proposed, Let a search be made for beautiful young virgins for the king.

13 3 Let the king appoint commissioners in every province of his realm to bring all these beautiful girls into the harem at the citadel of Susa.

14 Let them be placed under the care of Hegai, the kings eunuch, who is in charge of the women; and let beauty treatments be given to them.

15 4 Then let the girl who pleases the king be queen instead of Vashti. This advice appealed to the king, and he followed it.

16 8 When the kings order and edict had been proclaimed, many girls were brought to the citadel of Susa and put under the care of Hegai.

17 Esther also was taken to the kings palace and entrusted to Hegai, who had charge of the harem.

18 Special Beauty Treatment & Diet for the godly woman

19 9 The girl pleased him and won his favor. Immediately he provided her with her beauty treatments and special food.

20 He assigned to her seven maids selected from the kings palace and moved her and her maids into the best place in the harem.

21 15 When the turn came for Esther (the girl Mordecai had adopted, the daughter of his uncle Abihail) to go to the king,

22 she asked for nothing other than what Hegai, the kings eunuch who was in charge of the harem, suggested.

23 Obedience brings favor…

24 And Esther won the favor of everyone who saw her.

25 17 Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins.

26 So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.

27 Obedience brings the crown

28 Philippians 2:5-9 Jesus, who, being in very nature God…made himself nothing… …humbled himself and become obedient to death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name.

68 The Evil Plot of Haman

69 Esther 3:9 If it pleases the king, let a decree be issued to destroy them, and I (Haman) will put ten thousand talents of silver into the royal treasury for the men who carry out this business.

70 10 So the king took his signet ring from his finger and gave it to Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of the Jews

71 13 Dispatches were sent by couriers to all the kings provinces with the order to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews

72 young and old, women and little childrenon a single day, the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar, and to plunder their goods.

73 Esthers Challenge Prayer & fasting Prayer & fasting Action Action

74 Esther 4:12 When Esthers words were reported to Mordecai,

75 13 he sent back this answer: Do not think that because you are in the kings house you alone of all the Jews will escape.

76 14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your fathers family will perish.

77 And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?

78 15 Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai:

79 16 Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day.

80 I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.

81 After prayer ACTION

82 5:2 When he saw Queen Esther standing in the court, he was pleased with her and held out to her the gold scepter that was in his hand.

83 So Esther approached and touched the tip of the scepter.

84 3 Then the king asked, What is it, Queen Esther? What is your request? Even up to half the kingdom, it will be given you.

85 4 If it pleases the king, replied Esther, let the king, together with Haman, come today to a banquet I have prepared for him.

86 5 Bring Haman at once, the king said, so that we may do what Esther asks.

87 The Day of FREEDOM for Gods People

88 Esther 6:1 That night the king could not sleep; so he ordered the book of the chronicles, the record of his reign, to be brought in and read to him.

89 2 It was found recorded there that Mordecai had exposed Bigthana and Teresh, two of the kings officers who guarded the doorway, who had conspired to assassinate King Xerxes.

90 7.10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the kings fury subsided.

91 8:1 That same day King Xerxes gave Queen Esther the estate of Haman, the enemy of the Jews. And Mordecai came into the presence of the king, for Esther had told how he was related to her.

92 2 The king took off his signet ring, which he had reclaimed from Haman, and presented it to Mordecai. And Esther appointed him over Hamans estate.

93 10 Mordecai wrote in the name of King Xerxes, sealed the dispatches with the kings signet ring,

94 and sent them by mounted couriers, who rode fast horses especially bred for the king.

95 Redemption The tables are turned

96 11 The kings edict granted the Jews in every city the right to assemble and protect themselves; to destroy, kill and annihilate

97 any armed force of any nationality or province that might attack them and their women and children; and to plunder the property of their enemies.

98 9.2 The Jews assembled in their cities in all the provinces of King Xerxes to attack those seeking their destruction.

99 No one could stand against them, because the people of all the other nationalities were afraid of them.

100 5 The Jews struck down all their enemies with the sword, killing and destroying them, and they did what they pleased to those who hated them.

101 9:31 to establish these days of Purim at their designated times, as Mordecai the Jew and Queen Esther had decreed for them, and as they had established for themselves and their descendants in regard to their times of fasting and lamentation.

102 32 Esthers decree confirmed these regulations about Purim, and it was written down in the records.

103 10:3 Mordecai the Jew was second in rank to King Xerxes, preeminent among the Jews, and held in high esteem by his many fellow Jews, because he worked for the good of his people and spoke up for the welfare of all the Jews.

104 Balance Inner Beauty Outer Beauty Husband Wife

105 1 Peter 3:1 Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives,

106 2 when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.

107 3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.

108 4 Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in Gods sight.

109 5 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands,

110 6 like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.

111 7 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.

112 The Woman who Fears the Lord

113 Proverbs 31:10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.

114 11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.

115 12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.

116 13 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

117 14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.

118 15 She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.

119 16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

120 17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.

121 18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.

122 19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

123 20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

124 21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

125 22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

126 23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

127 24 She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.

128 25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.

129 26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

130 27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

131 28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:

132 29 Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.

133 30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

134 31 Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
