In rapid succession, events that followed the decree by Haman, to kill the Jews of the land, took place.
These events could only be the brushing away of man’s futile attempts to undo the Lord ‘s work among His people. The resulting events were physical attributes of correcting the wrongs, by a God that moved with Spiritual Power across the lands and the souls of the people. The impact changed a kingdom.
