Sunday 15 November - Ben Peletier. Obadiah 1:15-21 - How Near Is Near?
Series: Brothers at War
This week in the final section of the book of Obadiah we see the message reach its climax, bringing to light the ultimate plan God has for both Edom and the world. What we see in this passage is that God's word about Edom is not simply about Edom but speaks to the all nations.
In these final verses we see both the dread of judgment and the hope of restoration. Yet will we make the same mistake that Israel did in misplacing these promises? Will our hope be in something that God promises or something we desire?
