They shall not prevail against you… if
In the Book of Esther, when Haman was humiliated before Mordeacai, Zeresh, wife of Haman along with his friends, tells him something:
If Mordecai is the seed of the Jews, before whom you have begun to fall, you shall not prevail against him, but shall surely fall before him. – Esther 6:13 (MKJV)
The Bible clearly mentions that Mordecai was from the tribe of Benjamin and Haman, who was a Agagite, would know this – because Agag, the king of Amalekites was defeated by the first king of Israel, Saul who was also from the tribe of Benjamin.
However, here Haman’s wife as well as his friends mention something specifically: If Mordecai is the seed of the Jews, then you shall not prevail against him, but shall surely fall before him.
Jews specifically refers to those who belong to the tribe of Judah. When Judah was born, his mother Leah decided not to seek the approval of her husband in vain anymore; instead, she decides to praise the LORD and names her fourth son as Judah, saying, “This time I will praise the LORD.” (Gen. 29:35)
When we praise the LORD, we become the seed of Judah, we become Jews in true sense. And, if we praise the LORD, then they shall not prevail against us. Are you a seed of the Jews? Do you belong to the tribe of Judah? Do you worship the Lion of Judah? Then you will praise the LORD and no enemy of yours will be able to prevail against you; every single enemy of yours will surely fall before you.
When the Israelites camped in the wilderness, the LORD specifically commands the tribe of Judah on the east side, so when the sun rises, the sun light reaches the tribe of Judah first.
Are you confused about your life? Are you surrounded by darkness? Don’t be afraid, don’t fret, dear friend. Praise the LORD now. Become the seed of the Jews. Belong to the tribe of Judah. No enemies of you will prevail against you. They will fall before you. When the sun rises tomorrow, be Judah – praise our LORD with all your heart.
|Hebrews 12:1“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,”
