Today’s passage: Obadiah 19-21
- The Negeb (Or Negev) region in Judah was the area closest to Edom and therefore most often fought over and disputed.
- The people of Israel will dwell in the land they had lost and the lands of those who surround them. The expansion in this passage spreads north, south, east and west.
- The kingdom will be the LORD’s.
- Yahweh will rule as king. (Read Revelation 19-20:6)
- The gods (And the people) of the other nations will have failed to thwart Him.
- Israel will no longer reject His reign as they did when asking for a king like the other nations.
Questions to consider:
- How does this prophecy point to Jesus Christ?
- How can the fact of Christ’s victory and coming reign give you confidence to follow Him today?
