Lesson From The Gallows

Time and time again do we witness humanity’s vile propensity when people devise schemes and traps for others. We see it every single day in the mainstream media and frankly it is getting quite tiresome. We got a bit of reprieve from the monotonous narratives due to the once in a lifetime phenomenon and the day after, it goes right back to the agenda of dismantling the country through division and race-baiting but people need to understand the truth…

“Whoever digs a pit will fall into it,
And he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.”

Proverbs 26:27

And so we learn a lesson from the gallows, the story of a man who was in a position of influence who wanted to further his nefarious agenda of marginalization and the eventual extinction of people whom he found to be irksome simply because they held fast to their convictions.

Haman’s Rage Against Mordecai

Haman went out that day happy and in high spirits. But when he saw Mordecai at the king’s gate and observed that he neither rose nor showed fear in his presence, he was filled with rage against Mordecai. 10 Nevertheless, Haman restrained himself and went home.

Calling together his friends and Zeresh, his wife, 11 Haman boasted to them about his vast wealth, his many sons, and all the ways the king had honored him and how he had elevated him above the other nobles and officials. 12 And that’s not all, Haman added. I’m the only person Queen Esther invited to accompany the king to the banquet she gave. And she has invited me along with the king tomorrow. 13 But all this gives me no satisfaction as long as I see that Jew Mordecai sitting at the king’s gate.

14 His wife Zeresh and all his friends said to him, “Have a pole set up, reaching to a height of fifty cubits, and ask the king in the morning to have Mordecai impaled on it. Then go with the king to the banquet and enjoy yourself.” This suggestion delighted Haman, and he had the pole set up.

Esther 5:9-14

It seems for those who do not have any respect for other people’s rights just because they don’t like them, the easy solution is call for assassination. Does this at all sound familiar? The historic account is short and I recommend you read the whole book of Esther but below is the fast track to Haman’s plight.

“Then Harbona, one of the eunuchs attending the king, said, A pole reaching to a height of fifty cubits stands by Haman’s house. He had it set up for Mordecai, who spoke up to help the king.

The king said, “Impale him on it!” 10 So they impaled Haman on the pole he had set up for Mordecai. Then the king’s fury subsided.”

Esther 7:9-10

People are so bent on doing away with the democratic process and erasing history along with all the painful truth that serves a reminder for us not to repeat it. When they do get what they have toiled for, only then will they realize in actuality, they have dug a pit for themselves. The Socialist agenda is a lie. If Socialism truly is all the rage, try moving to a Socialist state to experience it firsthand. Do all rational Americans a favor; Buy a one-way ticket to Venezuela!

“He who has ears, let him hear.”

I love this free will expression of Jesus. He speaks the truth and yet, only those who are receptive will hear. This is the beauty of this country, expression. But let us not misconstrue our freedoms as a cover up for evil (1 Peter 2:16).

  1. It’s funny how the liberals say that we (conservatives) are intolerable and violent yet at the same time they display the same characteristics which they denounce. That is hypocrisy at its best. They should add the word “liberal” as a new synonym for the word “hypocrisy.”

  3. Stumbled on your blog while trying to find a synonym word for “to change from the inside.” Strange that this post is about that…and that Haman obviously didn’t change, to his detriment. Will check out more of your blog. I have one too, though it’s not quite as charming as yours: http://www.whinemoses.blogspot.com 🙂 I think Esther is one of the most interesting books in the Bible. We’ve all known people like Haman (heck I’ve worked for people like Haman!) and sometimes we “wish a Haman” on someone who we think deserves it. Then we have to remember that WE were once like Haman…it’s just that before we followed in his footsteps, Jesus climbed up the gallows and cut down our rope!

    1. “Then we have to remember that WE were once like Haman…it’s just that before we followed in his footsteps, Jesus climbed up the gallows and cut down our rope!”

      If you are alluding that we are all sinners, of course. Each person especially before a genuine encounter with Jesus Christ has the propensity to do unspeakable evils. However, I would like to point out that Haman was intent on carrying out genocide and in that, I cannot relate. To God, sin is sin, but Scripture does point out that certain sins do have greater degree which can be found in Matthew 11:20-22.

      This post is to point out specifically the commonality of what is rampant in the vocal majority’s desire (I say majority since they assert their candidate to have won the popular vote) to bring harm to the president simply because people do not like him and what he stands for to Haman’s sentiment towards Mordecai and with every intent to appeal to some people’s conscience.

      It’s interesting that you stumbled on this particular post the way you did. I always believed that whoever was meant to read any of my posts will somehow be led to it.
