Discussion for Obadiah 1

  • James
    Who are the Edomites of today. If this vision is of a future destruction, who are they. Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 say that those in Isreal today are not the true Hebrews. Where are the tribe of Judah
  • AKANINYENE for verse 17
    In mount Zion there is a place where believers meet God face to face. A place of prayer where our rights is taking by force.
  • Noemi garber
    I believe that the lord is not through with edom and Esau. God says do not touch the apple of God's eye. He will avenge his people because when they saw their brother in trouble they went Into their country and brought more destruction in their lives. They laughed at their brother and for that they will pay says the lord.
  • Teresa
    I believe through Obadiah God is trying to tell us that we are vain people and we see everyones sins but ours sometimes.we forget that God is in charge.when when we leave God out then he convicts us to rember that he is the almighty and without him our lives are distarous.
  • Patrick Ogbogu for verse 17
    Zion is a place where inheritance is handed over to you. It is a place of deliverance from every oppression of hell, a place where you are cleaned up and whatever belongs to you is delivered to you
  • God will destroy the proud.Those people who are self righteous may try to do things in proportions that would disregard the sovereignty of the most high.
