Is COVID-19 God’s Judgment? (Obadiah)

This morning we will take a look at the prophet Obadiah. Obadiah announces the end of the longest running sibling rivalry in the bible, that between Jacob and Esau, who would be called Israel and Edom, who would become the nation of Israel and the Edomites. Israel was commanded by Moses to love her brother Edom. The Edomites were consistently a thorn in Israel’s side. Obadiah announces Edom’s destruction because of her pride and arrogance as they gloated over the destruction of Judah.
