Discussion for Obadiah 1

  • Rev Franklin Miller
    Please all that leave comments, capitalize "God" when you are referring to the most High Lord of lords and King of kings. Obadiah gave this respect for Him and who are we that cannot or will not?

    This chap. - all about Edom/Essau. I've done some reading on Petra/Edom south of the Dead sea. It's a HUGE red rock structure, carved by hand thousands of years ago, by the Edomites, Essau's descendants. Essau means red and his descendants carved a red city. Anyway, the physical Edom/Petra was destroyed, just as Amos says, by God. But try to tell that to atheist archaeologists.

    I love this bible. You can listen to it and you can read it when you want. It teaches you about god and what's going to happen in your life so I like that bye
  • BaNathShal Ahayah
    This book is the final destruction of the Edomites (Idumea, Edom) as told by Obadiah from the mouth of the Most High. While it clearly outlines the destruction that will happen to Edom and the future victory for Judah and the Children of Israel, I believe there is more pages to this book that are not here. I truly believe there is more destruction coming to Edom that is not shown to the public.
