We come back to looking at the books of the Minor Prophets. This week its Obadiah’s turn… which sort of reminds me of a man with a big beard. His name actually means ‘one who serves Yahweh (God)’.
Essentially the book is promising judgement to all those nations who oppose God and his people. While God's people (who have already experienced judgement) will receive restoration from God.
It is a promise for all of God's people. It points us all towards the final end of time when God will make all things new and all the injustices will be righted. It is a promise for all of us that ultimately God is in charge and his will is the only thing that counts. The book of Obadiah points towards what God is doing in all of history.
It’s well worth reading.
