Debbie and I send by mail a "gift" CD Sermon, recorded live in our living room, to each person who financially helps us each month. In April we shared my verse-by-verse study of the Lord's Prayer. There are a dozen or so of these left over ... we will be glad to mail you one if you'd be interested. If would would listen to it and study the truths of one of the greatest prayers ever prayed. Just give us your mailing address. First come, first served. Quantities are very limited.



Three weeks ago when we began this study of the little Old Testament Book of Obadiah I did not know exactly where its twenty-one verses would lead us. Part history, part prophecy, all divinely inspired and inerrant!

This Portion of Scripture chronicles the relationship between the Jews, the people of Judah specifically, and the Edomites. Their cousins from across the river!

It relates how badly the Edomites, descendants of Esau, hated ... literally despised ... her cousins, her distant brothers!

We here read of one of Israel's lowest moments in all her long and varied history. When she fell to the Babylonians, because of unconfessed, blatant, rebellious, idolatrous sin!

But still, near the end of the Book Judah is offered "hope!"

And Edom, four times called the "Mount of Esau" in the Book, is offered "no hope!"

One commentator labels Obadiah a Unit of Scripture that shares a "profound theology of hope!"

God is not "through" with Israel, or Judah!

He has for her a plan!

Truly in the sense of Jeremiah 29:11. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."


Yes, some day Israel will believe!

She will be given ... and will accept ... a Saviour!

Jesus Christ the Lord!

So promises the Holy Spirit in many places, particularly including the little Book of Obadiah!

Again today I share with you the Prophecy's last verse. "And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD'S."


Even so, Come Lord Jesus!

These current Obadiah Lessons are being saved for you right HERE on the Website. I want you to be able to read them consecutively, without any interruption. Of course this will only be possible after the Series has been completed. I am immensely enjoying Obadiah, especially its boldness and truthfulness. This Book presents us a pristine example of the accuracy of Bible prophecy.

And furthermore, all the recently completed Lessons on "Jesus as Teacher" will remain archived HERE on the Website. May they be a blessing to you! Each of the Gospels presents Jesus as a wonderful Mentor, but in four different ways!

To study any of our other Bible Expositions, visit the SITE MAP Page. There you will find over eleven years of Verse-by-Verse work. Generally speaking, the older lessons are nearer the top of the Page and the newer lessons closer to the bottom.
