Esther 2:7 New King James Version (NKJV) 7 And Mordecai had brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle’s daughter, for she had neither father nor mother. The young woman was lovely and beautiful. When her father and mother died, Mordecai took her as his own daughter.
Esther 4:14 Amplified Bible (AMP) 14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?
God says yes I have hidden you, yes you are My righteousness…but now is the time to come out from among them and be and do what I have called you to be and to do…because if you remain where you are…in silence you may perish also. I have put the words of encouragement, salvation, healing and deliverance into your mouths and it flows through your hands…but will you break forth for Me…though you do not see Me…though I am nowhere amongst them…I am still present within you…you were hidden by Me to infiltrate the land…but now I call you forth and I say speak, run and do in My Name…because you are the tree that I have planted amongst the stones, you are the myrtles that I have place instead of the briars…don’t get comfortable in your place of success nor in your place of safety. Prophet Karena.
When Esther was introduced…she was actually introduced as Hadassah… and then as Esther.
1. The name Hadassah represents righteousness. As a righteous woman, she brought godliness into a world, where there wasn't any.
2. The name Esther is derived from the Hebrew word hester which means “hidden,” and represens hidden godliness.
3. Esther also represents myrtle…The myrtle tree grows as either a shrub or a tree and grows well in stony soil. It is capable of reaching a height of 30 ft but is usually found as a shrub 7 to 10 ft high.
19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, and the wild olive; I will set the cypress in the desert, the plane [tree] and the pine [tree] together, 20 That men may see and know and consider and understand together that the hand of the Lord has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the Lord for a name of renown, for an everlasting sign [of jubilant exaltation] and memorial [to His praise], which shall not be cut off.
