Haters Will Be Outside

10th May 2019

Scripture Reading: Esther 6: 1-14


“And the king said, Who is in the court? Now Haman was come into the outward court of the king's house, to speak unto the king to hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.”
(Esther 6: 4)

While the king asked questions about what had been done to honour Mordecai, Haman was in the outer court of the King’s house. Haman was an enemy of the Jews, he made arrangements to hang Mordecai, he was the sort of person who would have told the king not to honour Mordecai, he would have been a spoiler, and he was in the outer court as the decision was taken. Haman was outside as the decision to lift Mordecai was taken.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: when the decision to lift you will be taken, the ‘Hamans’ of this world will be in the outer court. When the time for your lifting is due, the haters of your destiny will not be part of the decision makers. When the time of your promotion arrives, the men who do not want to see you rise will not be there to spoil things for you; there will be no spoiler in the day of your remembrance; there will be no evil man on the day when heaven will smile on you.

Haman was within the environment where the decision to honour Mordecai was pronounced, but he was not aware of it until it had become a decision. Things went far beyond his control before he got wind of it. Hear me again: your lifting will take the enemies of your destiny by surprise. Before they show up, you would have been lifted; before they show up, it will be too late for them to turn back the hands of the clock.

The servants of the king who were with him did not speak the wrong words concerning Mordecai. They simply aligned with the king’s disposition to honour Mordecai. I speak over your life: in the day of your lifting, everyone and everything will align to work in your favour. Every voice that will speak in the time of your lifting will speak for your promotion, increase, favour, expansion, appointment, approval, acceptance, etc.

Ask God to keep away the ‘Hamans’ of this world from the matter of your lifting. Ask God to send men who will speak in your favour in the day of your lifting.


The Hamans of this world will not speak in the time of my lifting, in Jesus’ name!
