The House of Esther - The Prince of Sumba Chapter 23

   After the incident at the bookstore, I’d lost track of time, normally no big deal on Mindanao. It wasn’t a place known for time keeping. But it was Friday, the day of preparation, with less than an hour till sunset. I had to make the best of my time so I hailed a tricycle driver hoping he'd be able to help me find lodging for the night and food for the following day. I knew it would be impossible to make it home before...

It has come to my attention that there are those reading these portions online who think they're getting the entire book. That is NOT the case. That leaves me no option other than to remove the online chapter previews.

*Definition: positional fornication - acting against or usurping the God ordained position of authority that a husband has over his wife. *Tricycle driver - In much of Asia, motorcycles have an additional wheel added to the right of the driver in back. Between that wheel and the back wheel of the motorcycle is wedged a small seat which is barely large enough to seat two passengers. There are variations o­n this. Some seating as many as 5 passengers including the o­ne sitting behind the driver! beshert* Yiddish for "the one God has chosen for you" or "your destiny." In the case of women God chooses only one at a time. In the case of men God may choose more than one at a time. Many men today are denying their beshert the right to the marriage that God has ordained for them because these men are already married and they think they may not have more than one wife at a time. Unlike women, men may be married to more than one person at the same time. King David had more than o­ne beshert. Bathsheba was David's beshert but he didn't wait for the Lord's timing. David committed adultery with Bathsheba because she was already married. He then had her husband Uriah killed in battle. Had David not followed this disastrous course then Uriah would have died according to God's timing and that would have freed Bathsheba to marry him. We can know this because Solomon came from Bathsheba and Solomon is in God's chosen succession of kings that culminated with Jesus. David's marriage to Bathsheba was preordained. Bathsheba was David's beshert.

Note: beshert* Yiddish for "the one God has chosen for you" or "your destiny."
