The Book of Obadiah

It’s never a good idea to challenge God or denigrate His people. The biblical axiom “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’” (Ps. 14:1) is not musty, ancient folklore. In this issue you’ll see how the book of Obadiah makes that point and how history confirms the reality. It brings the ancient prophet’s words to life and exposes the true story of sowing and reaping that is essential to understanding who is in charge and how to respond biblically. And the editorial answers the question, “Is America a Christian Nation?” Information, edification, inspiration are all here. But what makes this issue a treasure is our 12- page tribute to Zvi—our late colleague who survived the Holocaust, found the Messiah, fought for his country, carried the love of Christ to the streets of Jerusalem for decades, and inspired thousands worldwide with his courage and dedication to the faith. It’s all a perfect fit for your life. Don’t miss a word!

In This Issue:

Introduction to Obadiah

DAVID M. LEVY | Knowing the background of a book of the Bible helps immensely in understanding God’s Word. Here is an excellent overview of Obadiah.

The Pitfall of Pride

TOM GEOGHAN | Edom wasn’t like other nations of its day. It was ensconced in terrain that appeared impenetrable. And its lofty position led to its besetting sin.

The Folly of Misplaced Trust

MARK JOHNSON |Possessions, position, and power. They seem to be what everyone craves these days. But they did Edom in, as you’ll soon see.

The Genesis 12:3 Principle

ROBERT J. STAHLER | It’s not wise to challenge God. When He told the Jewish patriarchs, “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you,” He meant it.

You Reap What You Sow

RICHARD D. EMMONS | Have you ever planted corn and reaped wheat? No? That’s because God’s laws govern the universe—both physically and spiritually, as Obadiah reveals.
