Esther 5: 4 - 8: And Esther answered, If it seem good unto the king, let the king and Haman come this day unto the banquet that I have prepared for him. Then the king said, Cause Haman to make haste, that he may do as Esther hath said. So the king and Haman came to the banquet that Esther had prepared. And the king said unto Esther at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed. Then answered Esther, and said, My petition and my request is; If I have found favour in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition, and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I shall prepare for them, and I will do to morrow as the king hath said.
Queen Esther prepared two banquets for the King and for Haman to attend.
It was at the second banquet (Esther 7), at the second coming of the King that a pronouncement of judgment was given against Haman who had plotted to destroy the Jews, and it was at this second coming that Esther experienced deliverance for herself and for her people.
This age is the time of the second coming of the great King (Christ Himself), and it is in this season that the Queen (the Bride of Christ) finds deliverance for Herself from the great evil that is gathered against Her; She will be raptured, translated away before the wrath of God is poured upon the earth.
