Esther, Malachi, 2 Peter


Book of Remembrance

And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed. Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim.

Esther 9:28ff (Spoke 17, Cycle 1)

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Malachi 3:16ff (Spoke 17, Cycle 2)

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

2 Peter 3:1ff (Spoke 17, Cycle 3)

The Book of Malachi ends with the reminder to remember the Law of Moses, saying:

Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

Malachi 4:4 (Spoke 17, Cycle 2)

The theme of remembrance is unusually strong in 2 Peter. This word is used three times in three verses:

Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.

2 Peter 1:13ff (Spoke 17, Cycle 3)

Peter then explains the need for this remembrance in terms of the reality and power of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ:

For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

2 Peter 1:16 (Spoke 17, Cycle 3)

Exactly the same pattern is followed by the word given by the Lord God Almighty through the Prophet Malachi:

Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

Malachi 4:4ff (Spoke 17, Cycle 2)

Of course, the word "before" is לפני lipnei - based on the fundamental Peh KeyWord פנים (panim, face) and greatly maximized on Spoke 17 in the phrase Before the King. These ideas also form a profound KeyLink. Searching the entire KJV for all verses containing the word "coming" within one verse of "rememb*) yields exactly two passages, Malachi 4.4f and 2 Peter 1.13f, both quoted above:

keyKeyLink: Remember the Lord's Coming!
Malachichain2 Peter

A similar idea forms a KeyLink between Esther and Malachi:

Esther 2.22f Malachi 3.16
And the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it unto Esther the queen; and Esther certified the king thereof in Mordecai's name. And when inquisition was made of the matter, it was found out; therefore they were both hanged on a tree: and it was written in the book of the chronicles before the king. After these things did king Ahasuerus promote Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him. Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

The KeyLink set is (book, written, before, within one verse of name):

keyKeyLink: The Book Before the King
EstherchainMalachi

Note that this KeyLink also includes the Peh idea "Before" (L'Pani). Yet this is but the begininng. Both Esther and 2 Peter specifically speak about writing a second letter to ensure that the message is not forgotten (Esther 9.29, 2 Peter 3.1)! We have the KeyLink:
