Obadiah 6 Nov 2018

Did you ever hear about Obadiah? He is one of the minor prophets in the Old testament.

Today I read his astonishing life story. Life of Obadiah.

In 1 Kings you can read some of his life: 1Ki 18:3 Ahab summoned Obadiah, the master of the palace -- Obadiah held Yahweh in great reverence.

Obadiah's prophecy.

Oba 1:1 Vision of Obadiah: about Edom.
I have received a message from Yahweh, a herald has been sent throughout the nations: 'Up! Let us march against this people. Into battle!'
The Lord Yahweh says this:
Oba 1:2 Look, I have reduced you to the smallest of nations, you are now beneath contempt.
Oba 1:3 Your proud heart has misled you, you whose home is in the crannies of the Rock, who make the heights your dwelling, who think to yourself, 'Who can bring me down to earth?'

Do I have a proud heart?

Your proud heart has misled you.

What does the pride in my heart tell me?
William, you don't have to change. You can lead an easy life.
William, you are right, you don't have to make up with that person with whom you have quarreled.
