Powerful Prayers Points for VindicationAs a person with noble intentions, you might often wonder why some people could be so brazenly evil and cruel. This is because their selfish nature is highly at work, so they lack good conscience. They would throw you under the bus to take the fall for their misdeeds. They will accuse you falsely to cover up their crimes. Imagine waking up to hear an evil rumor being spread about you.

Joseph and Mordecai are two men in the bible who were wrongly accused. They had their fair share of tribulations. As if their personal woes were not terrible enough, some people rose up against them to ensure that they were to be severely punished for crimes that they did not commit. Let us look at who accused them and how they were all vindicated in the end.

Genesis chapter 37 tells us the tribulations of Joseph started when his brothers grew jealous of him. His brothers hated him because he was loved more by their father, Jacob. The hatred and jealousy grew worse when Joseph began to have strange dreams which he told to his family. In each of those dreams, the interpretations seemed to mean that Joseph was greater than everyone in his family and that one day, they would all bow to him. One day, Jacob sent Joseph out to the field to check on his brothers who were tending their flock of sheep. When they saw him approaching, they plotted to kill him but their oldest brother Reuben discouraged them. Instead, he convinced them to sell him to a group of Ishmaelites who bought him as a slave and resold him in Egypt. The brothers stained Joseph’s coat with the blood of an animal and lied to their father that he was eaten by a wild animal.

In Genesis chapter 39, the story continues. The Ishmaelites sold Joseph to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh and captain of the Egyptian guard. The Lord prospered Joseph in Potiphar’s household. Potiphar realized the grace of God upon Joseph and made him oversee the affairs of his household. Potiphar’s wife however, had her eyes set on Joseph. She wanted to sleep with him. Joseph knew her intentions were evil and turned her down. She pestered Joseph day by day to no avail until one day she pounced on Joseph when nobody was in the house. Joseph struggled with her and in the process had to leave his outer coat with her when she grabbed it off his body. It was this same coat that she used as an evidence to lie against him. She was in a place of authority. Joseph was a mere slave. Nobody believed him. They were no witnesses to corroborate his story. His master, who was highly disappointed in Joseph for betraying him, threw him into a dungeon.

In Genesis chapter 40, Joseph met two men in prison. One was the chief butler to the king of Egypt and the other was the king’s chief baker. These two men both had strange dreams which Joseph was able to interpret perfectly. Much later, Pharaoh, the king of Egypt had strange dreams that troubled him greatly. None of his noble men could interpret his dreams. The chief butler who had been released from prison and back in the king’s service remembered Joseph and his gift of dream interpretation. He recommended Joseph to the king who ordered him to be brought out of prison. Joseph was able to interpret Pharaoh’s dream and because of this, he was made a prince of Egypt. He was second in command to Pharaoh, overseeing the affairs of Egypt. Much later in Genesis 42, we read of the great famine and how Jacob’s son travelled to Egypt to buy grain. They ended up bowing to Joseph not knowing who he was at the time.  Joseph’s dream had come true and he was later vindicated.

The story of Mordecai’s accuser opens in the book of Esther chapter 3. Haman hated Mordecai because he was the only person who refused to bow to him anytime he passed by. Mordecai was a Jew. Haman hated Mordecai so much that he did not only plot to kill him, he plotted to wipe out the entire Jewish race that resided in the vast province of King Ahasuerus which extended from Persia and Media to India and Ethiopia, including twenty seven other provinces. As his jealousy and hatred for the Jews consumed him, God was busy hatching other plans to outwit him and vindicate his people who were innocent and completely oblivious of Haman’s evil plan. God had already put in place a young girl called Hadassah who hid her Jewish identity and going by the Babylonian name, Esther to become queen. Mordecai was a cousin and father figure to Esther. God used Esther’s position as Queen of Babylon to save the entire Jewish race. In the same period, the king discovered in his book of records that Mordecai once saved his life when some men plotted to kill him. He decided to reward Mordecai and asked Haman for suggestions on how best to reward a man who pleased the king. Haman who thought the king was referring to him gave a very elaborate suggestion to the king, (Esther chapter 6). He was consumed with rage when he discovered the king was referring to Mordecai and not him. His evil plot was later exposed by Queen Esther. Haman was hung to death on the very same gallows he had erected to kill Mordecai.
