Memorable Scripture: Our Thoughts be Hanged

So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath subsided. Esther 7:10

Haman attends the banquet given by Esther for the king and himself. The king asks Esther about her desire.
She responds that she and her people would just like to live but someone is trying to kill them all, and she points the finger at Haman.
The king became angry and took a walk in the garden, while a frightened Haman pleads for his life lying across the couch that Queen Esther is reclining on.
The king returns to this sight and is furious at this provocative position. He orders Haman hanged on his own gallows.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. Gal 6:7
Haman’s hate for one man and his determination to destroy an ethnic group became his downfall.
What he sought against Mordecai happened to him.

Haman had a high position in the kingdom. Perhaps some were equal to him but only a few were over him, one of those being the king.
Haman used his position for his own evil and selfish means.
It was not for the benefit of the kingdom.
His plan did not benefit the king.
His intentions did not benefit the people.
He convinced the king of his scheme to destroy the Jews, while only presenting half the facts.
Haman sowed hatred, resentment, anger, and death. He reaped the same for himself from the one and only person that could possibly reward him with it – the king.

There is One Who rewards everyone according to what they’ve done.
Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. Rev 22:12
Many people do what is right in their own eyes but it is God that decides right and wrong. God’s law usurps man’s law and ideas.
When it comes down to it, it does not matter what you or I think about sin.
It does not matter what you and I think about salvation.
It does not matter what you and I say about good or evil.
It only matters what God, the King, says and our thoughts be hanged!
So you and I need to align our belief’s and thoughts with Him.
