"If I Perish, I Perish" - Part 2
Liam Goligher reminds us that we must see both God and Satan in Scripture, and nowhere is that more evident than in the Book of Esther. An invisible war rages in Susa between the forces of evil and the people of God. Esther and Mordecai have been caught up in that war and have become players in it. But they are not mere pawns.
If Christians confuse what is true of Jesus Christ as a human being with what is true of the Eternally Divine Son, they make very serious errors indeed. The most obvious is to conﬂate the exaltation of the Son of God from all eternity with the welcome given by the Father to the God-Man Christ Jesus, who redeemed God’s elect through a sacrificial death. So, in these great teachings, a course correction is long overdue, lest we run out of fuel over water. We must adore Jesus Christ our Lord, both fully Son of Man and fully Son of God.
