Hidden treasures usually refers to minerals in the ground. However, in the case of King Xerxes, it referred to the people in his kingdom.
Mordecai had been there for quite some time. He was sufficiently well placed to hear about the treason/murder plot. But he was not known to the king.
Through the episode of insomnia, God arranged for him to become known to the king, and through Haman’s colossal ego, he became known to a major portion of the city.
The visibility did not change the essence. Mordecai had been loyal to the king all along. He had been skilled in the nuances of palace politics. He understood law and administration. He knew court polity and was able to function smoothly in those realms.
All of that was there, and the ones who needed to know, did not.
Once God supernaturally brought the treasure into view for the right people, national level changes took place very quickly. But God had to surface the individual who had been there all along.
There is much that is wrong in the civil government, religious government, educational circles, and marketplace in Canton Bern. God is in the process of removing the Hamans who have been championing the Moabite curse.
The removal of those people will create disruption in each of those organizations. For each Haman who is removed, we need a Mordecai who can step in a right the ship.
We believe that God has meticulously planned ahead and that there are an adequate number of Mordecais “hidden in plain view” ready to take the corrective actions needed.
Pray that God would supernaturally make them visible to the right leaders, so the transition from one season of life to another can take place swiftly and properly, without a lot of infighting among the would-be Hamans still around.
