<-- Back to Obadiah chapter 1

I believe its the end of the nations of Esau's during the end times. The wickedness of Esau's has reached our heavenly Father and Obadiah has made it clear. The bible says the earth is given in the hands of the wicked, who's the ruler of the earth? Obadiah talks about Jacob being the flame, meaning the ruler of the next kingdom. Israel is my first born!! Esau's are not Arabs

Helene; In the Original Text, the word you are writing about is Hebrew 'shemuwah' meaning something heard, i.e. an announcement - bruit, doctrine, fame, mentioned, news, report, rumor, tidings. Additionally, the King James English also has to be understood the way it was in the 17th Century, not by today's. The archaic or first meaning of rumour is din or clamour. Modern English has lost a lot!

Rumor...is a statement that has not been validated yet, but something that may take place in the future...so because Edom was not brought down yet, it was considered a rumor

In a nutshell Esau, the Edomites or the modern day Arabs will not rule again. If u look at the old biblical maps and compare them to modern day maps, you will see that Edom is in Saudi Arabia which is pretty much Mecca. Also Teman is n Saudi Arabia which proves my point. Esau watched and helped his brothers and sisters of Jacob go into captivity. Esau will be cutoff when Yah returns.

"WE", as the people, "HEARD", as some people listen, "RUMOR", as some people talk about, "From The Lord!, as some people are revealed Wisdom! "an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle." - Now, Who Are The Heathen on Earth?

God was making a point. He was sort of questioning the Edomites belief in him. He went into talking about how stubborn and selfish they were if you read on. Almost like the Edomites did not really believe God was who he said he was.

Mark (cont.) In addition to learning the original meanings of words, and understanding within the context of all that is being said; it is important to NOT rely on our modern-day usage of language, as it is greatly lacking in many cases because we simply do not understand nor use many words in the same way as in earlier times, and knowledge has been lost due to man's pursuit of ignorance of God.

Hi Mark; The Hebrew word translated into our English King James Bible as, rumour, is more accurately, something heard; as an announcement, news, report, etc. Another example is found in the place where it talks about the "fame" of Jesus spreading... the word in Greek is better, "the hearing of Him" was spreading... Compare Obadiah 1 with Daniel 4:13

Mark Verrell, I am no scalar of the word, but read verse 3. I get it in my understanding that the rumor is really from what Satan said when he tried to take over the set of GOD. I’m interested in the reply’s of others.

I am confused in the 1st verse of Obadiah" we have heard a rumor from the.LORD " I don't understand the LORD DOES NOT SPEAK IN RUMORS WHAT DOES THIS MEAN ARE THEY CONFUSED AND NOT SURE OF WHAT THE LORD IS SAYING??

I thank god for keeping his promise to the chosen people jacob

Verse 10: Esau and his offspring showed a violent spirit toward his brother Jacob and his offspring. For this unjust treatment, they would have to face the consequences.

Hey
Debbie, I think you are absolutely right! We should have respect towards God. Just look in the first book in the Bible, all that he made was for us. :) I am grateful that we have a loving God.

 


Rev Franklin Miller's comment on 12/06/2016, 9:51am...

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's comment on 10/26/2016, 11:48am...

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.

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's comment on 10/08/2015, 7:37pm...

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's comment on 7/28/2015, 8:14am...

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's comment about verse 17 on 6/13/2015, 9:32am...

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

 


Kosom's comment about verse 4 on 6/01/2015, 10:15pm...

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.
