God deals with our enemies. Herod beheaded the Apostle James which pleased the Jewish leaders. Then he arrested Peter. He was an evil wicked man. He allowed rhe people to worship him as God. Until angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died. The Jewish historian Josephus tells us this took place in this beautiful Roman Theater in Caesarea. The Church today, like Israel of old, suffers because of people like Herod who use their authority to oppose the Truth. The story of Esther demonstrates the revealing of what is hidden. Purim celebrates how the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a holiday because Esther acted "for such a time as this." Many of the people became Jews. REVIVAL! In the early church, the Gospel was on the move.
