Edom’s Third Sin

Let us muse today from Obadiah verse 14 and the sins that brought Edom’s judgment. We have looked at two of their sins thus far. They are Edom encouraged Judah’s enemies and Edom enjoyed Judah’s end. Let us look today at Edom enslaved Judah’s exiles. When Nebuchadnezzar took Jerusalem many fled and tried to get away from the captivity. The Edomites stood at the crossroads and when they thought they had made it safely away the Edomites would come and chain them up and take them back to Babylonian camp. Oh what wickedness. Israel had been commanded to always treat Edom as a brother and give diligence to evangelize them to know Israel’s one true God. The Edomites never recognize Israel as a brother, but only as an enemy. Oh how we treat those who are blood kin as if they were our enemies. How can we say we love God and hate our blood kin?
