There’s those with beautiful feet that spread peace, joy & good news
There’s those with ugly diseased feet that spread fake news, hoaxes,
lies & depressing sorrow.
In the book of Esther we read of a guy with ugly feet named Haman.
He wanted to destroy a man named Mordecai who had beautiful feet.
Mordecai has a interesting etymological meaning.
It can mean a little man.
It can also mean a man under nasty oppression & bitterness
Haman went to work constructing a super gallows.
A skyscraper scaffold that was to be 50 cubits tall. (75 feet)
50 was a play against these Jewish people & their Passover celebration.
After the Passover there was the feast of weeks lasting 7 sabbaths
A time of joyous feasting & wave offering.
A wave offering is lifting up our hands by waving before the Lord
our gratitude & praise for all He’s done & all He’s given to us.
Haman wanted to bring 50 days of murder & massacre.
He wanted disgrace for Mordecai.
50 days after the crucifixion of Christ,
Jesus sent His Spirit to live in His people.
God’s Spirit came to fill us with His power, His love & His joy
The Spirit keeps reminding us of our acceptance, forgiveness & peace in Jesus.
These are what beautiful feet bring. They carry Beautiful truth.
There are always demonic minions with their ugly diseased feet.
They’re busy constructing a scaffold for us.
They want to assassinate our character.
They build their gallows with bellowing bloviating words.
They use the materials of slanderous remarks.

Hamans feet ended up dangling from his own gallows.
Weirdos, who go about with ugly feet, are always
attempting to gouge others with negative junk
They’re actually throwing a boomerang.
They end up whacking themselves in the back of their own noggin.
