14  On the contrary, if you keep silent in this crisis, relief and deliverance will come to the Yehudim from another quarter, while you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows, perhaps you have attained to royal position for just such a crisis.”

4:14 Relief and deliverance will come to the Yehudim

These female IDF soldiers are modern day examples of Jewish women taking an active role in bringing about the redemption by defending the Land of Israel.  Relief and deliverance will come to the Yehudim

Mordechai’s inspiring words move Esther to courageously step up and defend her people. Mordechai does not say, “If you are silent now, then we are all doomed,” because he knows that the God of Israel will never forsake His people. Instead, Mordechai empowers Esther to take a leading role in the redemption, and not to sit quietly on the sidelines as it unfolds. In every generation there are those who threaten the existence of the Nation of Israel. Ultimately, Hashem will defend His people and His land, but is up to each individual to decide if he or she will stand up, as Queen Esther did, on behalf of Israel.

  • This reminds me of a teaching about how Elohim calls forth people to do a particular task. HE will see the task accomplished, but it is up to each of us as individuals to decide if we will be a part of HIS plan or not. When we fall back or step aside, Elohim simply moves on to another person and gives them a chance to step up.
    This teaching is intended to keep us humble as bond-servants as it’s up to us to realize that we may well be Elohim’s sixth or seventh choice for the task at hand or even worse…
    Baruch Hashem.
