The closing of the Eastern Gate in the 1500's has often been thought to line up with Eze 44:1, but that event does more to prove that God can't be thwarted by man. It is also important to see the priority that the Lord places on personal piety.

The Book of Esther teaches us that the Lord is working, apart from us, in spite of us, or through us. His will is sovereign, and His Word, once sent out from Him will not return to Him void, but will accomplish what it has been sent to do. The question we must ask is what part we want to have in God’s will. Whether that is in the daily of our lives, or the divine appointments He has set up. How wonderful—what an incredible privilege to be part of His great plan for the saving of souls, for showing mercy, and the love of Jesus.

God’s will is to be accomplished, without you, in spite of you, or through you. It is for this that you were brought to this place and it is now time to step up.

Jesus is always more interested in the person than the process. He is also more interested in the person than the crowd. In this passage He calls a man away from the multitude to deal with His pain one-on-one. He desires the same for us today.

We do not know the mind of God when tragedy occurs unless He explicitly tells us. Whether it is visited on a nation, a city, a community, or a person things aren't so clear cut about the guilt or innocence of the people involved. Was it God's hand? Why didn't He intervene? Jesus uses this passage to teach that it is not about 'why' but am I ready should it be visited upon me, and the necessity for quick repentance.

And there will be a day when He returns for an accounting of what we have done with them. Since this parable is within the context of the Olivet Discourse - a teaching on end times - we have to look at it as a challenge to be ready at all times, but caught up as a 'good and faithful servant'.
