Obadiah 1:1-4 (NIV)
The vision of Obadiah.
This is what the Sovereign LORD says about Edom — We have heard a message from the LORD: An envoy was sent to the nations to say, “Rise, let us go against her for battle” — “See, I will make you small among the nations; you will be utterly despised. The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks and make your home on the heights, you who say to yourself, ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’ Though you soar like the eagle and make your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down,” declares the LORD.
Obadiah’s warning to Edom is a warning to all of us. We can all have a little bit of Edom inside us.
There are three main points
- There is a little bit of Edom in each of us
- God has compassion for his people, in the midst of judgement
- God is sovereign
