The Emergence Of Queen Esther.




The Emergence Of Queen Esther.


You may be familiar with Esther's tale. Although she is widely recognized as a queen, I think many people are unaware of her historical significance.

Vashti's actions and God's plan for the Jews led to the emergence of Queen Esther, also known as Haddasah.

You will learn about the types of relationships Esther had prior to becoming who she was in this piece as I discuss the errors of Vashti, who is another reason why queen Esther entered the scene.




This article also identifies red flags in relationships that must be addressed in order for peace, purpose, prosperity, joy, and love to reign in relationships.

I've already written about Vashti in "The Vashti and Delilah Incarnates," but this sheds more light on the relationship.

There was a time when King Xerxes was throwing a party to which he invited all of his royals who served under him as kings and princes. Because the king ruled over 180 countries, they gathered in large numbers from various nations.


It was a great day indeed, nothing of that sort had happened before in his rulership. 


As the king made a party for the prince and the kings under him, Vasti also did same for the women in the King's palace. 




Easy-to-Read Version Esther 1:9-22 Queen Vashti also gave a party for the women in the king’s palace. On the seventh day of the party, King Xerxes was in high spirits from drinking wine. He gave a command to the seven eunuchs who served him. The eunuchs were Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas. He commanded them to bring Queen Vashti to him wearing her royal crown. She was to come so that she could show her beauty to the leaders and important people. She was very beautiful. But when the eunuchs told Queen Vashti about the king’s command, she refused to come. Then the king was very angry. It was the custom for the king to ask the advice of the experts about the law and punishments. So King Xerxes spoke with the wise men who understood the laws. They were very close to the king. Their names were Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memucan. They were the seven most important officials of Persia and Media. They had special privileges to see the king. They were the highest officials in the kingdom. The king asked them, “What does the law say must be done to Queen Vashti? She has not obeyed the command of King Xerxes that the eunuchs had taken to her.” Then Memucan answered the king with the other officials listening, “Queen Vashti has done wrong. She has done wrong against the king and also against all the leaders and people of all the provinces of King Xerxes. I say this, because all the other women will hear about what Queen Vashti did. Then they will stop obeying their husbands. They will say to their husbands, ‘King Xerxes commanded Queen Vashti to be brought to him, but she refused to come.’ “Today the wives of the Persian and Median leaders have heard what the queen did, and these women will be influenced by what she did. They will do the same thing to the king’s important leaders. And there will be plenty of disrespect and anger. “So if it pleases the king, here is a suggestion: Let the king give a royal command and let it be written in the laws of Persia and Media. The laws of Persia and Media cannot be changed. The royal command should be that Vashti is never again to enter the presence of King Xerxes. Let the king also give her royal position to someone else who is better than she is. Then when the king’s command is announced in all parts of his large kingdom, all the women will respect their husbands. From the most important to the least important, all the women will respect their husbands.” The king and his important officials were happy with this advice, so King Xerxes did as Memucan suggested. King Xerxes sent letters to all parts of the kingdom. He sent them to each province, written in its own language. He sent them to each nation in its own language. These letters announced in each person’s language that every man was to be the ruler over his own family.


It brought shame on the king and his people.

The queen's disgraceful demeanor infuriated the people, who were outraged at her.

It was a complete disrespect, regardless of the king's situation, moments, or behavior at the time.

Vasti should not refuse the call because the king was inebriated.

The fact that you've had some visitors doesn't suggests that you should decline the king's invitation.

The queen made a huge mistake when she forgot she was a queen because of Xerxes.




Please, my brothers, if you notice this type of Vashti behavior in your future spouse, such as calling her on the phone for an urgent matter, sending messages, and ticking blue all the time whiles she doesn't respond to you or even chat back in time should raise a red flag for you.


Never, ever entertain such behavior in your life.

Ladies, keeping men in suspense does not bring the kind of love and joy they have in them for you; keeping men who are kings, leaders, business and visionary people in suspense will see you as time wasting, and that may be the end of the person's love and passion for you.

The presence of beauty does not preclude you from losing a great man in your life, nor does it preclude you from losing your future husband.


Behavior or character which is good triggers the man's heart towards you to think about you day by day and not keeping them in suspense. 




In Vashti's case, she lost favor forever due to disrespect; however, the king loved her so much that he never dispensed with the presence of her woman, but rather developed the kind of good attitude to acknowledge the wife in the presence of great men.


Some men even keep their wives in terms of great things, but Xerxes remembered her wisely and wanted to honor her in front of all other great men.

If you can't be submissive and respectful to your man, you're not ready to marry.

Women must be respectful and submissive, while men must love you.


This is one of the reasons Esther, the queen, entered the scene.


Esther was very prepared, she was humble in attitude, she had the favour of God and was beautiful.


Easy-to-Read Version Esther 2:2-18 Then the king’s personal servants had a suggestion. They said, “Search for beautiful young virgins for the king. Let the king choose leaders in every province of his kingdom. Then let the leaders bring every beautiful young virgin to the capital city of Susa. These young women will be put with the group of the king’s women. They will be under the care of Hegai, the king’s eunuch, who is in charge of the women. Then give beauty treatments to all of them. Then let the one who is pleasing to the king become the new queen in Vashti’s place.” The king liked this suggestion, so he accepted it. Now there was a Jew from the tribe of Benjamin named Mordecai. Mordecai was the son of Jair, and Jair was the son of Shimei, and Shimei was the son of Kish. Mordecai was in the capital city, Susa. Mordecai had been carried into captivity from Jerusalem by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. He was with the group that was taken into captivity with King Jehoiachin of Judah. Mordecai had a cousin named Hadassah. She didn’t have a father or a mother, so Mordecai took care of her. Mordecai had adopted her as his own daughter when her father and mother died. Hadassah was also called Esther. She had a very pretty face and a good figure. When the king’s command had been heard, many young women were brought to the capital city of Susa. They were put under the care of Hegai. Esther was one of these women. She was taken to the king’s palace and put into Hegai’s care. Hegai was in charge of the king’s women. He liked Esther. She became his favorite, so he quickly gave Esther beauty treatments and special food. He chose seven slave women from the king’s palace and gave them to Esther. Then he moved Esther and her seven women servants into the best place where the king’s women lived. Esther didn’t tell anyone she was a Jew. She didn’t tell anyone about her family background, because Mordecai had told her not to. Every day Mordecai walked back and forth near the area where the king’s women lived. He did this because he wanted to find out how Esther was, and what was happening to her. Before a young woman could take her turn to go in before King Xerxes, she had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments—six months with oil of myrrh and six months with perfumes and cosmetics. When her time came to go in to the king, she could choose to wear or take whatever she wanted from the women’s living area. In the evening the young woman would go to the king’s palace. And in the morning she would return to another area where the king’s women lived. Then she would be placed under the care of a man named Shaashgaz. He was the king’s eunuch in charge of the slave women. She would not go back to the king again unless he was pleased with her. Then he would call her by name to come back to him. The time came for Esther to go to the king. She was the one Mordecai had adopted, the daughter of his uncle Abihail. All she wanted to take with her was what Hegai, the king’s officer in charge of the women, suggested. Everyone who saw Esther liked her. So Esther was taken to King Xerxes in the palace. This happened in the tenth month, the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his rule. The king loved Esther more than any of the other young women, and she became his favorite. He approved of her more than any of the others. So King Xerxes put a crown on Esther’s head and made her the new queen in place of Vashti. And the king gave a big party for Esther. It was for all his important people and leaders. He announced a festival in all the provinces and sent out gifts to people, because he was a generous king.


The Emergence of Esther was as a result of the failure of Vasti. 




Many people's relationship spoils like Vashti's because of this behavior or poor character. 


Most at times many ladies are rejected by their will be partners and others are chosen because of respect and submissiveness.


Easy-to-Read Version Ephesians 5:22-25 Wives, be willing to serve your husbands the same as the Lord. A husband is the head of his wife, just as Christ is the head of the church. Christ is the Savior of the church, which is his body. The church serves under Christ, so it is the same with you wives. You should be willing to serve your husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives the same as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it.


Another reasons why Esther came into play was favour. 


God favored Esther in the eyes of both He, the Lord God, and men.

Esther first received the honor of having her own uncle lead her to the king's palace because of her humility and obedience. Hegai liked Esther, which was a sign of God's favor.

Sometimes you need favor in your relationship; otherwise, your relationship may end, even if your spouse still loves you, due to the influence of the people around him and his own family. They can dislike for many reasons.

There is no way you can marry your loved one if their parent parents start rejecting you.


Esther might have lost the man if she didn't have favor; perhaps she wasn't just the most beautiful lady there, but she was chosen because of Grace.


Relationships have not only physical but also spiritual lines, so when you pray about it, ask God to give you favor in the eyes of the family and the person you truly love.


Esther had a good relationship with Hegai, and she also had a good relationship with Modecai, her own uncle who helped her. Esther also had a good relationship with God, who gave her favor and victory.


YYou require God in your relationship, men in your relationship, and people who will assist and promote you. May the Lord assist you and me in accomplishing His great purpose in our lives, Amen.
