Obadiah And The Prophetic Parable Of The Tares

During the past year or so we have posted several articles dealing with the prophetic circumstances of the House of Israel, where we are today, and what the prophecies tell us about Big Brother, Esau/Edom, the sixth head of the beast of Revelation. The emphasis has been on the House of Israel, the Biblical Christian nations, because over the past 2000 years we have forsaken our birthright, our covenant and the true gospel as delivered by Christ and the apostles in the first century. However, when the purging of Israel by the hand of God is finished at the end of this age, which is our 42 month “Apocalypse” as described in the Old Testament prophecies as well as in Revelation, then Edom will have the hand of God severely put upon him just prior to the return of Christ. This marks the sudden and complete end of Babylon the Great. The prophetic parable of the tares in Matthew and the prophecy of Obadiah speak to Edom’s fate.

Christ And The Duality Of The Atonement, The Hijacked Elephant

The duality of the Day of Atonement, both of the old covenant, the flesh, and the new covenant, the Spirit, is referred to in the New Testament Book of Acts. “But those things, which God before had showed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he has so fulfilled. Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and he shall send Jesus Christ [the second time] which before was preached of you …." [quote from the apostle Peter, Acts 3:18-20].

Seven Prophecies, Seven Churches

In our Sneakers article, The Context Of Prophecy, we discuss how prophecy is recurrent, that is it has more than one occurrence in kind. The same holds forth for the seven churches in the Book of Revelation. The description of the seven churches begins in chapter two of Revelation. But in chapter one, the apostle John was directed, “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches in the cities of Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.” [Rev. 1:11]. In the first century, these churches were located in the region called Asia, it's the westernmost region of Turkey today, separated from Greece by the Aegean Sea. Most likely, they were churches begun by the apostle Peter. [See 1 Pet. 1:1]. The term strangers in Peter's epistle refers to the fact that those of the House of Israel living there were not native to those lands. [See Mat. 10:5, 6; Acts 15:7].
