A Report From the Lord

To read the Bible in a year, read Obadiah.
When the Lord reports, what is it like? For Edom, the report spoke of disaster. Obadiah recorded the words of the report, “Arise, and let us rise up against her for battle” (Obadiah 1:1). You do not want to hear the Lord commanding His armies to rise up against you or your nation. Edom had become great, but that would change,
“Behold, I will make you small among the nations;
You shall be greatly despised.” (Obadiah 1:2)
It happened even as the Lord commanded. Today, the ancient capital of Edom (Petra) is nothing more than a tourist attraction.
Do you want your nation or your church or your family to fall from grace and become small, becoming nothing more than a tourist trap for people to gaze at and wonder about its former glory? If not, work for the righteousness of your group.
