Esther is rising. She’s awakening to her destiny, it was all for an appointed time. The Esther awakening is a selected portion of the bride of Christ (established in strategic positions) becoming aware that the controversy against her own, is with in her power to address. As Esther did in the book of Ether in the Bible. It is become evident that she has a responsibility to step up and use her favor, position, and influence, to make known the enemy’s plans, to those that are unaware and have the power to stop it. Men and women under a powerful revelation from God, rising up to the fact that this is their time to be bold, to be courageous, to enter the courts, to approach the bench, and set the record straight. These whom have offices and accesses in governments, from the school house to the White House, and everything in between. To stand up in the senator’s chamber, the executive board meetings; in private, and public hearings, all across this land, making their requests known, and their petitions heard, against this great controversy that is arising in America. This Esther (the Bride of Christ, who consist of believers of all kinds and gender) this American Esther, has stood in a bit of obscurity not knowing the power she has, until now … but this epiphany, this awareness of duty, has begun to reveal itself in dreams, visions, and Holy Spirit encounters sealed for the political landscape we find ourselves in now. A Journey of times.
Years of training and preparation, for some- master’s degrees, and doctorates. For others military advancements, and political appointments, and academic tenures … promotions moving individuals from one position to another, one place to another, one opportunity to another, that has really been His plan all along. Though it often moved the missionary minded heart farther and farther away from the missionary field, and the way of life from one’s own peers, (even as depicted in Esther’s own story) assignments and amazing doors for access, in this moment of time, was planned from the very beginning. To be a voice of protest, and exposure, with great power and conviction. To thwart Satan’s plans. The Esther company has been planted in High place as well as obscure places through out the governments of this world for such a time as now. Many are realizing the cost, at the same time they are beginning to understand, these positionings were ordained by God. Some have led to power, wealth, and privilege, existing only because the Father purposed it to be so. An Esther company is coming into an awareness of her leverage and calling. No matter where she has found herself in this hour, the challenge is the same. The gears of oppression are turning and she is one of the few that can stand in the way, in her unique position and favor, and shed light on an evil scheme. Only because of where God has placed her! Will she be crushed, or will she be the one that makes Hamen pay? Either way, her reward is that she was not silent when silence was the easiest road to travel. Upon her gift, upon her favor; yet, limited access, she imposes herself (by faith) in that moment of opportunity, even stretching her scope of privilege, she pushes through an (otherwise) closed door, relying upon divine placement and her God, to prosper her in her way … The Esther company (responded to) releases a provision from heaven, a flood gate of wisdom, council, and might, to be the viceroy of sovereigns, the adviser to powers and thrones, in her wake when those powers yield to the request of Esther. To fill the vacuum of evil advisors and wicked policies exposed by her well selected script by a modern day Mordecai. Where there is an Esther there is a Mordecai standing in the wings. While there is a company of Esthers stationed though out the Kingdom. From PTA moms to Executives, it’s the prophets, the Mordicais’ that advise and council this company to see the position that she has. Being in an historical place in time, that what she is a part of is bigger than the part she plays – but her destiny is to take center stage for one brief moment of time, to engage, and persuade the powers to be, to compel them to come, at her table, in the presence of her enemies, attended by those who stand polarized between two great powers. The power of good and the power of evil. Pray for the Esther awakening to have courage, pray her words will be anointed and irrefutable. As Esther of old understood her remarkable story was for the cause of her people, so now many in places of influence are understanding their own success or unique access was for the cause of Christ. As Esther approaches, thrones, podiums, and microphones, all over this land, she will not be alone, the Body of Christ, (Him for Her and Her for Him, for she is not her own nor is He complete with out her, they are one …) will fast and pray. Knowing the cost, for all that can be lost for her disclosures and requests. Now is the time in history, she’s been in the courts and palaces. She has had the freedom to run down the halls of privilege and power. Lo for seasons and times. But this story will fade, the voice of the bride and the bride groom will become silent in the land, if the Esther company fails her appointment with destiny. We prophesy to the Esther company rise up and be brave, be courageous. As Esther of old understood the risk, she intrepidly laid it all down, if I parish I parish, her famous words. So it is, this awakened Body called the Esther company, now rising taking her place in American history, in the state of captivity she finds herself now in. So very convicted, even now, by the ancient words of Mordecai: “How do you not know it was for this you were born?“
