    Lose it all. The people of Edam are going to lose everything they have, and it will go to those who have been their enemies. Read Obadiah 1:19. Then those of the Negev will possess the mountain of Esau, And those of the Shephelah the Philistine plain; Also, possess the territory of Ephraim and the territory of Samaria, And Benjamin will possess Gilead. Obadiah 1:19 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/oba.1.19.NASB Because of their disobedience, part of the judgment that God is bringing upon the people of Edom will be that they will lose everything they have. Prior verses have talked about them losing their fields and their crops, but now they will lose…

    Going to be burned up. Because of all they have done against Him, God explains the judgment. Read Obadiah 1:18. “Then the house of Jacob will be a fire And the house of Joseph a flame; But the house of Esau will be as stubble. And they will set them on fire and consume them, So that there will be no survivor of the house of Esau,” For the Lord has spoken.

These people will move through Edom like fire moves through kindling. As we look…

    If you knew you were going to be treated the way you had treated others up to this point, would you be happy or upset about that? The people of Edom were faced with that very question. Read Obadiah 1:15. “For the day of the Lord draws near on all the nations. As you have done, it will be done to you. Your dealings will return on your own head. Obadiah 1:15 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/oba.1.15.NASB How have we treated other people? When it comes time for God to review and to judge, He often allows people to experience the very things that they have been doing to others. All of our…

    Do we help those in need? Edom didn’t. The people of Edom had an entirely different way of responding to those who were in need. Read Obadiah 1:14. “Do not stand at the fork of the road To cut down their fugitives; And do not imprison their survivors In the day of their distress. Obadiah 1:14 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/oba.1.14.NASB Edom had been actively seeking out the people of Israel during this time and had been killing or imprisoning those who had escaped the original fight. During the time of greatest need and vulnerability, Edom sought to annihilate the Israelites, not to save them. As we look at the people in the…

    “You stood aloof.” The people of Edom had seen what was going on and the attacks on Jerusalem, but instead of helping their brothers, they stood off and watched, and even helped. Read Obadiah 1:11. “On the day that you stood aloof, On the day that strangers carried off his wealth, And foreigners entered his gate And cast lots for Jerusalem- You too were as one of them. Obadiah 1:11 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/oba.1.11.NASB The people of Edom had seen what was going on and yet they did not do anything to intervene. In fact, they were even part of the group attacking. Now God is going to hold them accountable for…

    No loyalty. The people of Edom had attacked and fought against their family, their brothers, and as a result, God was holding them accountable for those actions. Read Obadiah 1:10. “Because of violence to your brother Jacob, You will be covered with shame, And you will be cut off forever. Obadiah 1:10 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/oba.1.10.NASB Covered with shame and cut off forever, all because they were violent toward the people of Israel. The way we treat others matters. We are accountable for our attitude and actions toward all the people that we are around and come into contact with. Do contacts and connections with us result in drawing people closer to…

    Might won’t save you. As we’ve been seeing, having allies won’t save you and being wise won’t save you. Read Obadiah 1:9. “Then your mighty men will be dismayed, O Teman, So that everyone may be cut off from the mountain of Esau by slaughter. Obadiah 1:9 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/oba.1.9.NASB Even if the allies won’t save them and wisdom won’t save them, Obadiah goes even farther to say that the mighty and strong men will be destroyed. Strength won’t save us and those who are putting their faith in their own abilities will find themselves desperate and on the path to destruction. Edom’s mighty men were going to learn that first…

    Betrayed. The people of Edom are going to be betrayed by the very people they thought they could trust. Read Obadiah 1:7. “All the men allied with you Will send you forth to the border, And the men at peace with you Will deceive you and overpower you. They who eat your bread Will set an ambush for you. (There is no understanding in him.) Obadiah 1:7 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/oba.1.7.NASB Who do we trust? If we’re like most people, we only have a handful of people that we trust. Edom is similar in that they have a few nations that they trust and have an alliance with. Yet, God is sharing…
