Part I

In the peculiar vision, GOD – Adonai, Elohiem, Hashem, seems to be speaking of a certain conflict or struggle resulting from a dispute over “something” quite special and intriguing, that has lasted throughout history (* over 4 or 5 thousand years) between two related peoples which in turn eventually engulfs all other nations on earth.

It also appears to be a culminating, maturing, harvesting, recompense, “day of Judgment” or time somewhere in the future (* could be now) when the issues, arguments/disputes and events of that ancient conflict are finally resolved etc. 

 

It is at this special time or “day” that one people will ultimately, completely, and without controversy prevail against the other. 

 

However, the odds against the “winners” were/are so great and diabolical, that their victory had to come by the direct intervention- miracle, providence of the Giver and Narrator of the Vision, Who is GOD HIMSELF….because they did not stand a natural chance against such a formidable force attacking them. 

 

The victorious are, as it turns out, a peoples whom HE has specifically created to carry out HIS Will on Earth as it relates to all nations…that being the House of Jacob, Hebrews, Israelites, even modern day Jews and Israelis.

 

 Ironically, according to HIS Ancient prophecies recorded in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures concerning the two struggling peoples, it is the House of Jacob that prevails over that of Esau, the paternal twin of Jacob (Deceiver), renamed Israel (Prince of GOD).

 

Even Zion- Mount Zion, the object of tension between the peoples and GOD Himself, is exalted above all other mountains of distinction, especially over Mt. Esau, the later being that great aggressor who inflames the conflict by an international alliance or confederacy against Jacob, the modern day Jews.

  1. The “Players” or personalities, characters featured in the message are in the following order of appearance: GOD, Obadiah HIS prophet; The LORD GOD, the CENTRAL FIGURE; Edom, who also is known as Esau, the maternal twin brother of Jacob, eventually also known as Israel; The LORD, Who also is The Lord GOD, “an” ambassador; the nations – political governmental entities and/as well as ethnicities; Esau, who is also known as Edom, the maternal twin brother of Jacob; the “men of your confederacy”; the “wise men”; Teman; “mighty men”; “strangers”; “foreigners”; “his forces”; the “children of Judah”; “My people”; “My Holy Mountain”; Mount Zion; the House of Jacob; the House of Joseph; “they of the south”; “they of the plain”; the Philistines; and “they”; the captivity of Jerusalem; Benjamin; the “nations”; the House of Joseph; Canaanites; saviors;  

Each player is identified in the scenario of what Obadiah is saying from GOD.

  1. The “Places” featured in the message are in the following order of appearance: the Mount of Esau; the “border”; Jerusalem; the “gate of My people”; the “crossways”; My Holy Mountain; plain of the Philistines; “the south”; Zarepath; the fields of Ephraim; the fields of Samaria; Gilead;  and, which is in Sepharad, Mount of Zion; Kingdom of GOD;

The Vision of Obadiah

  1. Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom; We have heard a rumor from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the nations, “Arise you, and let us rise up against her in battle.”

The Vision of Obadiah begins with the Lord GOD Who Is the GOD (of Israel Adonai, Hashem, El Elohiem, saying something about HIS concerns with Edom, who according to the Holy Hebrew Scriptures, is also Esau, the very maternal twin brother of Jacob, son of Isaac, grandson of Abraham the friend of GOD, to whom GOD Has given the Promise of all the ages and peoples on Earth.

It appears that GOD Himself sends out a rumor of some unknown nature… “We have heard a rumor from the LORD.   Why would GOD send out “a rumor” and what it could be?

On several occasions, the Scripture speaks of this certain and seemingly strange Way of GOD, The CREATOR of the Earth and all life that is in, on, and about it…which demonstrates HIS Total and complete control over everything, that there is…

·        In fact, all visions, events on earth in and about the affairs of humanity, discloses the identity, character, nature, power and will of The ALMIGHTY HIMSELF, that we, HIS Children may come to know HIM As such for HIS Eternal purpose for us in this world and that which is to come. 

     Apparently, this geo-physical realm and dimension is not the end of life and  creation, but rather the fantastic beginning of something wonderful

·        HIS Holy Scriptures serves as the “Map” or “Manual” to the direct and personal Knowledge of how to enter and maintain a relationship with HIM.

·        Also,   “…the rumor from the LORD” could also show that GOD Is willing to share with those of us who are alert to the affairs of life in, of and around us, certain information that HE Only is privy to for the purpose of calming any fears and anxieties that we may have about our destinies; and to prepare ourselves for involvement of some sort of special communication (prayer-working) with HIM About that eternal destiny.

 Now, it appears that simultaneously, or at some undisclosed point in time, an ambassador (someone or something representing another; a messenger or message) is sent among the nations…likely from GOD HIMSELF…being that GOD Is the ultimate in knowledge and intelligence.

This “ambassador” or message goes about in the world calling to the nations, “Arise, you” nations…. “…let us rise up against her (* this woman) in battle (* war, violence)”

At this time, for some reason, the vision shows that GOD Is intent on making the “ambassador” and/or its’ source “small among the nations and greatly despised” instead, which is probably in retribution for some kind of offensive, odious, repugnant behavior that the former is about to commit, has committed or is committing against HIM, even in HIS Sight.

The offending behavior of Edom which seems to be  his apparent intense desire to not only personally commit horrific violence on this certain woman mentioned in the text, but to also instigate a conspiracy with others to do so as well.

Special Note: GOD’s Sight is simultaneously past, present, and future, being that HE Is seated on HIS Throne in eternity-Heaven and eternity-Heaven is encompassed within HIS Being.  Therefore, The LORD GOD Sees all.

  1. Behold, I have made you small among the nations: you are greatly despised.

Apparently, due to some yet unrevealed reason in the text at this juncture, GOD Takes an action that causes the nations to either suddenly and unexpectedly or eventually consider the “ambassador/source” to be no longer important, relevant, necessary or of any significance in the concerns and affairs of world. 

It appears that something in the scheme of Edom’s “things” (his sinister, secret-hidden plans and actions) goes surprisingly wrong for him.

In fact, the ambassador entity itself becomes “greatly despised” by those very nations that were/are/will be recruited for a dirty deed of enormous violence against a certain woman (* “her”)!

The message of the unknown representation-source calls for unification among certain nations, perhaps possessing a common interest, thereby easily forming a coalition!

Noting here: Nations are either, or both political governmental entities and/or/as well as ethnicities, races, with or without geographical national borders, etc!   So therefore, the “ambassador” is a personage or something that seeks and apparently is able to muster or cause (stir, whip-up, instigate) a coming together… a unification or confederacy of many and varied kinds of peoples, races, ethnicities, etc. throughout the world – international.

The “message” of an international union to execute violence on a certain woman!

It is to be noted, that generally nations launch military aggression or wars on other nations to gain various realms of powers, prestige and wealth – “booty” – bounty – spoils that follow victory!   They are either jealous or envious of that intended victim nation and/or covet the treasures-resources thereof!

Nations are often identified or referred to by GOD and humanity in the human female-feminine form, hence, “her” in the text is most likely a whole nation-ethnicity of peoples…past, present, future – generational and eternal.

Also, it is to be noted that according to the Holy Hebrew Scriptures, GOD Often Identifies nations in the male masculine sense as well.

Unfortunately, for these particular “male” allies, the treasures that they commonly desire are actually the possession or property of a “woman” who is apparently very special to GOD HIMSELF.

The jealous cravings of the “ambassador” and that of the nations’ for the “lady’s” properties is so fierce that they seek to dispossess her of it by violent, military aggression - warfare!  They intend to “beat-up”, “rape” (take her substances) and even murder the woman.

However, these nations are unwittingly about to unleash a torrent of retribution of catastrophic proportions from the Hand of the ALMIGHTY.   “It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the Living GOD”, and “Vengeance is MINE says The LORD.  I Will repay.”  The Holy Hebrew Scriptures

Knowing in the heart or conscious that war is “wrong”, particularly when it is not provoked by the apparently vulnerable intended victim, the “message” is probably one of twisted reasoning and a convoluted justification for it by demonizing – vilifying the intended victim, the woman-nation. 

Apparently, the “messenger” and the confederates seek to ease their guilt ridden conscious with bombastic and even angry rhetoric.  The anger is meant to indicate that something has offended or hurt the raging aggressor, therefore retaliation is justified.  In other words, the intended victim had given a reason worthy of rage upon her person.  There is a vengeance or “payback” for something done in the past by the intended victim to the angry vengeance seeker, thereby providing justification for mad violence.

The message influences of world political bodies that perhaps will even applaud the venture due to a similar or common interest in the intended victim’s demise, i.e., replacement theology, philosophy and policies.

Though they and the ambassador entity are probably vastly different in every sense of the word from governance, culture, race and religion, the two aggressors find common ground enough to transcend that difference…at least until their mutual enemy is subdued and vanquished.

However, their common interest to beat, rape, murder and dispossess the woman of her substance to claim it as their own, are the super elements that bonds them together in their confederacy. 

Perhaps, the saying “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” is truly the ultimate fitting in this circumstance.

The common interest in the victim nation must be so great that though extremely different from each other, they are willing to get beyond and over their differences and act upon the ambassadors’ sinister message.

From the very onset of this vision, GOD Seems to be empathetic towards the entity that is the object of the “ambassadors” message, and who is to be disenfranchised by the international coalition.  

The empathy for “her” by The LORD Is probably the main reason for HIS Concern about Edom!  

Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom

Something that Edom is perpetrating in his message about the “woman” disturbs The LORD So greatly that HE HJIMSELF Takes direct action against it and Edom.

So we see an individual “messenger” stirring up or agitating others into a coalition against a single, vulnerable intended victim for the purpose of robbing – dispossessing the latter of “her” rightful power. 

In light of the coalition, the woman, alone, does not stand a chance to stop the great mission of “the messenger” and his cohorts.

The vision shows a picture of a male nation, called Edom, arousing other male nations (*perhaps female as well) to gang-up on or “gang-bang” with violence, a hapless female.  Literally, the female is a “damsel in distress!”

However, standing up as The Champion on behalf of a “damsel in distress”, the intended victim, is the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF…The STAR, The CHAMPION, The HEROE of the Vision.

While Edom is identified in the vision, the very special entity or precious person of GOD Around whom such a major international uproar, furor and tumult is swirling, is not as yet named, nor revealed at this time or juncture in the vision - Scripture.  However, a basic Bible, Tanach, or even Koran student would know who this entity is!

  1. The pride of your heart has deceived you, you that dwell in the cleft of the rock, whose habitation is high; that says in his heart, “Who shall bring me down to the ground?”

·        “When pride comes, then comes shame” Proverbs 11:2; “Only by pride comes contention” Proverbs 13:10; “In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride” Proverbs 14:3; Pride goes before destruction, and before a haughty spirit before a fall” Proverbs 18; “A man’s pride shall bring him low” Proverbs 29:23

Apparently, there is something in the heart, spirit, soul, emotions, and intellect of the ambassador/source – Edom that has caused him/it to fall into self-deception!

Perhaps that “something” can be revealed in the “message” whereby the invasion, attack, “battle” or war as intended victims is justified. 

The self-influence of the ambassador entity is so great that he says “in his heart”, and somehow tricks himself into believing enough to justifiably take violent action against the woman.

Edom’s self-deception is so deep “in his heart” that he thinks that even his allies don’t know his dark secret intent and what he believes himself to be in light of the whole matter, controversy, and conflict stemming from his apparently clear resentment against the woman

At a point in the vision, it is fortunate and ironic for Edom that his co-conspirators harbor similar sentiments against the woman in their hearts as well. 

However, Edom commits his biggest, last and fatal mistake through his self-deception. 

Edom’s self destructive delusion is so powerful and secret, that he genuinely thinks that even his allies are to be eventually and ultimately subjugated under him as revealed when he says “in his heart”, who “shall bring me down to the ground?” (* not even his allies – the “who” includes his allies)

In going along with his scheme against the woman, his fellow conspirators are either not aware of his thoughts, or perhaps they are and are utilizing his self deception for their own purposes, thereby deceiving him.  They too have their own agenda against the woman and seek her possession as well.

Hence, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend, until we vanquish my enemy.  Then my friend will be my enemy again!”  This is a foolish human nature “thing”.

Perhaps this “secret” and the behavior of Edom becomes the very source of the nations’ resentment, as they found/find/ will find out his secret intents and sentiments.

[*Revised- 08/ 18/06 – Revised 09/12/06]

The term “cleft of the rock” could mean the “rock” of the Holy Scriptures.  The Hebrew Scripture is the “Rock” – the Word of GOD. 

The cleft is the apparent or seemingly split or open space in the Rock.  The Holy Writ is the Hebrews Holy Scriptures – Torah/Tanach the so-called Old Testament or Old Covenant of The GOD of Israel; and the Hebrews Scriptures are commonly known as the New Testament or New Covenant of The GOD of Israel.  It defines or describes the relationship between GOD and humanity.

Also, the “cleft” is a place of refuge from any and all harm that could befall a person.

EXAMPLE:  When Moses, who had deep personal relationship with The GOD of Israel, asked to see HIS Face, i.e., Glory in totality, he was refused for obvious reasons.  However, The LORD Did provide for the humble Moses to get a glimpse of HIS Back parts lest he die.  Note:

“And The LORD Said, ‘Behold, there is a place by ME, and you shall stand upon a rock: And it shall come to pass, while MY Glory passes by, that I Will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with MY Hand while I pass by: And I will take away MINE Hand, and you shall see my back parts: but MY FACE Shall not be seen.”  {Exodus 33:20-23}

One set of scriptures highlights Moses a Hebrew, Israelite, Jew – in the Torah/Tanach or “Old Covenant”, the other set focuses on Jesus Christ, also Hebrew, Israelite, Jew – “New Covenant”.

Both scriptures features GOD HIMSELF in the Staring Role, of course revealing the oneness of the Scripture Rock, which has a “cleft”, not a split or division, but rather a “cut” – wound, perhaps, in “the side”.  A place where “something” can be placed, hide, take refuge, etc.

The individual who has deceived himself – Edom, somehow has found his way into what he thinks and believes is that “cleft”, and is working something sinister from that refuge or habitation which is “high”. 

The word “high” is generally utilized by Hebrew Holy Scriptures as being associated with GOD HIMSELF and human being that desires to be with HIM Must be humble – contrite, not filled with self-pride.  Note:

“…but he that puts his trust in ME Shall posses the land, and shall inherit MY Holy Mountain;…For so says The High and Lofty ONE that inhabits eternity, whose Name is HOLY;  I Dwell in the High and Holy Place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”   {Prophet Isaiah 57:13,15}

Also, “He that dwells in the secret place of The MOST HIGH Shall abide in the shadow of The ALMIGHTY.  I will say of The LORD, HE Is my refuge and my fortress, my GOD; In HIM Will I trust.  {Psalms 91:1}

This is not so with Edom, but is rather the very opposite of his attitude, whose heart-spirit is of self-deceiving pride – “The pride of your heart has deceived you.”

Intoxicated by his pride, Edom has deceived/deceives/will deceive himself deep within his heart, and proclaims his invincibility as though h e really sits in the “cleft” seat with GOD HIMSELF or even seeing himself or his fabricated deity or religion as GOD.

 (* “habitation” = the abode, dwelling place is associated with the Throne of GOD From where HE Rules the universe from within the seat of GOD – “Justice and Judgment are the habitation of YOUR Throne…” (* Psalms 89:14), and GOD Dwells in Mt. Zion from which HE Roars (the Prophet Joel 3:16,17)

There is now the combination of ROCK-Scripture, “high” – “habitation” the “cleft” of Jew/Christian as Edom attempts to ease himself into the apparent gap in order to carry-out the evil plan against his intended victim, the woman and eventually his allies in the confederacy.

Note: In Eretz Israel there are the ruins of an ancient Arab - Edom city famous for being carved into the rocks of a mountain called Petra.  Petra in ancient language mean “rock”!

Also, note that Edom-Esau has found or devised a “religion” - Islam written in a book of “scriptures” about a deity – Allah, and its’ messenger – Mohammed and Muslims which is combination or configuration of the two sets of Hebrew Scriptures.  A blatant plagiarism!  If all references to the Hebrew Scriptures were removed from the Koran, there would be extremely little or nothing left to the religion of Islam.

4. Though you exalt yourself as the eagle, and though you set your nest among the stars, from there will I bring you down, says the LORD.

Edom’s pride through his self-deception has led him to think that he is so powerful and righteous be his diety, that nothing can stop his intentions to carry out the onslaught against the woman.

Edom-Esau in self deception has made and exalted-lifted himself to a level of high governance or religious polity over all others and like the eagle, pretending to spiritually “see” (* like the eagle high in the sky) life and issues better than anyone else…with the divine authority to execute judgment such as to subjugate, levy taxes and even kill others who rejects his godly authority.

* “For The LORD Says; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread HIS Wings over Moab.”

Prophet Jeremiah 48:40

So by feigning or self-deceiving, Esau sees himself be as is GOD in HIS Seat or Throne as judge and executioner against all others who do not see life matters (religion, politics, culture, etc) as he does.

The statement “setting your nest among the stars”, Edom may think that his followers are so numerous that by shear numbers alone (1 1/3 billion on one singular mindset), he can easily overwhelm any other peoples.  Perhaps, this is a part of his confidence that inspires him to take the action for a final solution against Jacob the intended victim, once and for all.

Also, perhaps, it may be his deception that he thinks that those “stars” are supportive of his plan, but actually are not. 

However, apparently Edom was/is capable of carrying out his boastful intentions because the LORD Himself has to intervene with HIS Unquestionable Word of  “…from there will I Bring you down.” 

> Notice, HE Does not bring down the “stars” but rather extracts the would be “eagle” and his “nest” which is the place of dwelling, the breeding and hatching of others like himself  – headquarters or The Base of operations (* Al Qaeda?)

Also, when GOD Gave to Abraham the Promise, The LORD Said to him that his seed will be as numerous as the stars of heaven!  (* Genesis 15:5; 22:17; 26:4; Exodus 32:13), perhaps Edom planned/is planning to influence or take control over the “stars”, or even assume the right to the stars that belongs to another. 

The “stars” representing the heavenly or/and spiritual realm where Esau has exalted himself causing lowly earth walker to look up to him as something celestially endowed over them that must be submitted on bended knees and obeyed.

Also, perhaps the “stars" may be a great or primary portion of the possessions or even the very “substance” that belongs to the woman, which is the cause of the violence against her by Esau. (revised 1/05/07)

  1. If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night, (how are you cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough?  If the grape gatherers came to you; would they not leave some grapes?

It appears that that the devastation from GOD Upon Edom-Esau is so great that the LORD GOD Likens it to thieves or robbers who were so vicious that they left nothing in the house which was broken into.  Also, HE Likens the devastation to grape gathers not even leaving grapes to glean. 

 

  1.  How are the things of Esau searched out!  How are his hidden things sought up!

The whole world is wondering about the Islamic-Muslim, the apparent Edomite entity movement and is questioning, “What is the mystery and source of the unexplained,  ferocious lunatic-like  anger and/or madness displayed against the woman?”

Apparently, the big secret of  Esau’s intentions are exposed by GOD before the whole world. 

Remember verse 3?!? “The pride of your heart has deceived you, you that dwell in the cleft of the rock, whose habitation is high; that says in his heart, “Who shall bring me down to the ground?”

What is this secret at the heart of the 14,00 year old Islamic-Muslim movement?

  1.  All the men of your confederacy have brought you even to the border:  the men that were at peace with you have deceived you, and prevailed against you; they that eat your bread have laid a wound under thee: there is none understanding in him.

It looks like the “confederacy”, that is, those “nations” to whom Esau sent the “message” to “…rise up against her in battle” have apparently suddenly discovered and realized the “hidden things” in his “heart”, or have decided for some reason to reveal that they already know his secret intentions and the source of agitation.

  • Somehow this confederacy brings or had been deluding Esau or giving him such an impression of loyal partnership in his plan that they “brought” him “even to the border:” that is, the confederacy had previously encouraged Edom in his dastardly deed to cross “the border” and unjustly take possession of another’s property.

Ø      This “border” seems to be something ominous in the sight of GOD, Because HE Says “even” which indicates that their leadership (deceptive or inadvertently) in the matter had been commiting some very incredibly violent acts against “her”.

Ø      When it comes to “the border”, apparently there is a certain geo-physical boundary on the earth that holds special significance to The GOD of the Hebews. 

Ø      Any student of the Torah would know that there is only one such boundary or border that has special meaning to the LORD GOD of Israel...which is the one since antiquity that outlines the territory given by HIM To Abraham and his seed of Isaac and Jacob-Israel and their children after them.  The so-called Holy Land.

        ~ Please Note those borders in the Book of Genesis authored by Moses.  (* Genesis 12:1-7; 13:14 -18; 15:7 -21; 17:1- 8;) 

Ø      The great conflict apparently has to do with “the border”, that is, the ownership of the land and all the inheritance and heritage that goes with. 

Ø      It looks as though this is the reason for the “rise against her” message of Esau, which has to do with “the border” – land and something that it signifies.

  • “The men” or the confederacy who apparently entered into the alliance to “rise up against her” were obviously at some kind of “peace” with Edom-Esau, but apparently it was/is a deception because they “have deceived thee”.
  • Also, the deception by the men of the confederacy proves to be fatal to Esau-Edom, because they “have prevailed against…” him.  They in some cruel way turn on the Esau-Edomite entity.

Ø      It appears that the confederate nations were simply using Esau-Edom for their own intended purposes, which just happens to be the same as his...the murder and  of Isael and

Ø       Secretly, the nations had a disdain for Edom-Esau all along.  Remember verse 2, “Behold, I have made you small among the nations: you are greatly despised.”

Ø      The confederate nations were actually using Esau-Edom to achieve their own objective to destroy “her”…the woman.

  • Eating bread with someone signifies a warm relationship of fellowship and trust.  Yet, the confederate nations seems to be exploiting or agitating some deep-seated, emotional hurt in Esau in the conflict that they have been brought into by him, because they “…have laid a wound” under Esau-
  • “Bread”, also meaning life source of whatsoever kind that the confederates so obsessively eat could very well be the oil of the Arab Middle East by which their lives function.
  • In fact, this old wound existed long before Esau’s new friends or allies were even nations themselves, of whom he thinks that he has cleverly inspired to join or confederate with him the mutual venture.

Ø      It appears that the confederates are purposely agitating something that greatly bothers Esau, which causes him to be emotionally unbalanced, intellectually irrational and even furiously self-destructive in his foolish acts of aggression.

Ø      In fact, the “…none understanding in him…” appears to be that there are two kinds of ignorance is afflicting Edom.

~ One is, that Esau is ignorant of the conspiracy against him by the confederacy of nations;

~ The other is that Edom is ignorant of the fact that GOD sees into his dark heart, and is aware of his evil intentions, and of what HE has in store for him because of them;

Ø      The “wound” is apparently deep and ancient, which is recorded in the Book of Genesis having to do with a breach between Edom-Esau and someone else!

Ø      Esau’s pain and suffering from this “wound” is so intense that like an injured wild animal, he has gone mad with ferocious madness over it, even imagining or hallucinating something that is totally irrational.

      8.  Shall I not in that day, says the LORD, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau?

The Sudden, Unexpected End of Terrorism and the Purveyors of Such

  • The term “wise men” are those who are endowed with knowledge/science and the ability to convey it for good or evil.  They are philosophers, intellectuals, teachers, etc.

 

  • Specifically, GOD Is targeting these particular “wise” individuals in Edom because they are the leaders, elders, “the heads” in Esau.  As teachers, they give the instructions and reasons for them.  They justify and order the attacks.

 

  • When The LORD GOD chastises nations, or peoples, HE Begins with the leaders, “heads”. 

 

  • In this matter, it is the “heads” in Mt. Esau, that is, those who are first and foremost spiritual, followed by the governmental, then others.  Note:  “…begin with the elders…” (* Ezekiel 9:1-6)  Israel is GOD’s model for all nations.

 

  • It is possible that these particular leaders are both, intellectual, governmental and spiritual, because the devastation by GOD Upon their followers is so absolute?

 

  • Also, it is to be noted that the oppressive group of Muslims that ruled over Afghanistan, deposed by the United States, and is now an insurgency against the same is called the Taliban, which means Students.  Students of what?!?  Students of Islam.

 

  • According to Muslim scholars, Islam is not merely a religion, but is also a body politic or polity that many and various theocratic states…governments, are moving towards an ultimate global empire or caliphate, obviously “knee-bending-bowing” under the imposed teachings of their prophet Mohammed, messenger of the Islamic deity.

 

  • Furthermore, it is the stated mission of the Koran that all Muslims are to do all within their reach to help the “wise men”, imams, ayatollahs, ministers, teachers, et al to subjugate the whole world under Islam…including the infidel confederates eventually.

 

  • The Islamic state religion spawns cultural and social norms that it inflicts upon all other peoples of the earth by what the Muslim scholars insist is divinely decreed, the Sharia Law.

 

  • The leading group of Muslims in Iraq for the Sunni is called the Association of Muslim Scholars.  Scholars – the “wise men”.

Ø      Note there are not women Muslim scholars, imams, ayatollahs, ministers, etc.

  • The term, “that day” is one that is often seen in the Scriptures, which relates to a period of a DIVINE time for retribution or reward upon any and all segments of humanity for rebellion against or good works towards the LORD GOD Upon HIS Throne…Seat of Authority.

Ø      That “day” could indicate a certain period time in the form of days, weeks, months, years, millennia, a single 24 hours, even one hour or moments. The “day” would depend on the circumstance and context in which it is utilized.

Ø      While “that day” is generally ominous, it is also considered a time in which the obedient children of GOD would be blessed, redeemed, rescued, saved, etc.

9.  And your mighty men, O Te’man, shall be dismayed, to the end that everyone of the mount Esau may be cut off by slaughter.

The term “mighty men” in Scripture, is generally associated with great and specialized warriors, such as Commandos, Rangers, Green Beret et all.  Hebrew scriptures speaks of King David’s “mighty men of valor”

These were not ordinary soldiers or fighters or warriors.  They are specially trained and very powerful. 

However, there is something perhaps sinister about these particular rangers and commandos that causes the ALMIGHTY GOD, The Ultimate Warrior-Soldier HIMSELF to be angered at them.

Apparently, these “mighty men” are, have been, and will be so *ferocious, *furious, *cruel and merciless upon the children of Jacob-Israel, that GOD The Fighter HIMSELF Goes into battle on behalf of  HIS precious Remnant peoples.

*ferocious - vicious, fierce, unruly, wild, brutal…

*furious – upset, infuriated, livid, fuming, enraged, incensed, irate, angry, mad (nutty, crazy, insane)…

* cruel – mean, nasty, vindictive, brutal, unkind, pitiless, spiteful, merciless, malicious…

Ironically, the “mighty men” of Te’man, who cause “everyone in the mount of Esau” to “be cut off by slaughter”, are strikingly familiar with modern Arab-Muslim terrorist.

Te’man is another identity for Mt. Esau and Edom.  GOD Does something violent to the “mighty men” of O Te’man that dismays them “that everyone may be cut off in the Mt. Esau” by what appears to be a violent conflict. [Monday, October 30,2006]

Apparently, the “cut off” will be by some kind of massive, whole sale violence – a counter violence that will see the end of the “everyone” in mount Esau.  Slaughter – massacre, butcher, eliminate, annihilate, wipe completely out, and that with great violence.

GOD Causes Esau to be slaughtered by violence either directly from HIM or some other earthly entities, perhaps the confederacy itself or Jacob-Israel, the State, or even some internal eruption. 

An intifada – uprising within Esau himself! Hence, the Arab conflict with Arabs…not Israel.

 Islam will go through the final throws of upheaval resulting from its fatal wound that it received on the day that Israel was re-born on May 15,1948.

On that day, Muslim scholars of Islam cried out Al – Nacgh bar (*spelling may not be correct) – Arab for “The Catastrophe”. 

Muslims scholars have always feared such a dreaded day in which what they believed and practiced for so long (1400 years), to be “…the truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth”, is either unrealistic or outright false.

Such a revelation would mean that the prophet lied and/or there is no deity in the religion (Allah, et al) of the House of Esau, thereby making it meaningless and must be immediately abandoned. 

Al Nagbar – the catastrophe of their faith.  It is the end of the Islam.

Or, because the Muslims failed to fulfill the mission given to them by the prophet of the Islamic deity, that is, to convert or subdue the whole world under Islam, especially, the western world or at least to destroy its intended victim. 

However, the greatest and worst failure of all, is that this particularly generation of Muslims, like no other in all their history since the time of Mohammed 1400 years ago have allowed the re-birth and even flourishing of Israel, the subject of their disdain and fear….the cause of all of Esau’s woes.

The Catastrophe is the death of Islam…the hope of the children in Esau-Edom, while Jews and the House of Israel is at long last rescued, delivered, and saved.

However, according to the doctrine of Islam, whoever refuses to fight in the “cause of Allah” or fails in the great mission is in danger of going to hell on the Day of Judgment,

Recognizing their hopeless state of failure and in dire need for heavenly and earthly affirmation, perhaps, the people “stars” of mount Esau became weary of the words and deeds of the “wise” men and their “mighty men”, and the troubles that they cause them.

The followers of Islam’s leaders  - “wise men” – scholars become so irate with the suffering brought upon them that they were or will become willing to abandon over 1400 (fourteen hundred) years of the faith of their fathers. 

In rebelling against the ancient traditions, they find the courage to overthrow their religious fear-terror along with the power endowed upon them from the GOD of Israel HIMSELF.

The “everyone” could either be all the people in mount Esau or the “everyone” is specifically addressed to the “mighty men” and the scholars – the “heads” who are apparently under the tutelage of the “ambassador” and who sends out the “mighty men” – terrorist (?), to commit the horrific acts of violence – terrorism on Jacob-Israel.

There seems to be an option for the children of Esau to either flee the House and Mount of Esau or remain in it with the “mighty men” of Te’man where everyone in it will be “cut off by slaughter” – totally destroyed.

Holy” Jihad Warriors

At this point, it is to be noted that in the beliefs of the Islamic religion (the Jihad – never ending Holy War against humanity or until humanity submits to the will of Allah, to become Muslim even to Taqwa), there are two classes of warriors or soldiers waging it…they are the scholars with their pen & spoken words; and the soldiers with their swords…who carry out the physical violence or fatwahs of death.

These “holy” warriors-soldiers of the Islamic deity, are generally led by certain warlords who either inherited their position from their fathers, fore fathers and ancestors by clan traditions of declared themselves as such, i.e. the late leader of Al Queda.

The scholar interprets the teachings of the Koran and dictates them to Muslims.  The Muslims hear the words of the scholars and executes them on humanity.  The “sword of Islam” is violence to the soul and body of any human being who does not “bend the knee-bow down” – become Muslim, even to Taqua, to the deity identified in the Koran.

Interestingly, unlike any other religions, Islam throughout its’ history, from the beginning is quite particularly known for its’ VIOLENCE, himself, others and of course the children of Israel.

Even today, it is said that there are around twenty-two violent conflicts on earth and 20-21 are between Muslims and somebody else.  “Wars and rumors of wars”

While it is the soldiers-militants who carries out the physical violence of Jihad, it is the scholar who is thought of by all in Islam as the greater and most holy of the two. 

Without the intellectual prowess of the “God-gifted” scholar, the faith of the religion can not be known and spread abroad. 

The scholars mind – intelligence and that of his deity become one in agreement of purpose, i.e., “the will of Allah”. 

Due to the special intellectual relationship with Allah, the scholar has reached Taqwa, which militantly believing as the highest levels of total surrender to will of Allah, hence the imam, ayatollah, minister, teacher is Muslim of Muslims – a leader worthy to be obeyed in the Jihad by the warriors…even unto death.

  • Again, we are reminded of the identity of the “wise men” who are the scholars that bring about such a calamity upon the peoples of Esau - Also, it is to be noted that the oppressive group of Muslims that ruled over Afghanistan, deposed by the United States, and is now an insurgency against the same is called the Taliban…which means Students.  Students of what?!?  Students of Islam.
  • The leading group of Muslims in Iraq for the Sunni is called the Association of Muslim Scholars.  Scholars – the “wise men”.  Note there are not women Muslim scholars, imams, ayatollahs, ministers, etc., just men.  Perhaps, the women will escape the wrath.

Also, depending on the popular power of the intellectual, he is or becomes a candidate who could ascend to the  great heights in Islam of being “the one”- leader who brings about the prophesied, ultimate global Caliphate even the Grand Mufti or Twelfth Iman, and fulfill the “mission” given to by the religious polity, and fulfill the “mission” given to the of the religion.

  1.   For your violence against your brother Jacob shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off for ever.

"Kill the Christians on Sunday, kill the Jews on Saturday," as well as "Kill a Jew and save your soul". The late, Yasser Arafat

This is the first time that the intended victim of Edom, Mt. Esau is named.  It is Jacob, Esau’s paternal twin brother.  Here lays the crux of the whole generational and ancient Arab-Israeli Conflict.

It becomes more apparent that the “ambassador” is come on behalf of the militant, military-minded Esau, who wants nations of the world to rally with him in a violent attack upon the “her” which is clearly metaphorically Jacob, Edom’s own flesh and blood brother.  

Esau’s crazed violence against his brother is duly noted by GOD ALMIGHTY Who rules over all nations – political governmental entities and/as well as ethnicities of the world, raising up some and taking down others as HE Wills.

Noting here again: Nations are either or both political governmental entities and/or/as well as ethnicities, races, etc!   So therefore, the “ambassador” is one who seeks and apparently is able to muster or cause a coming together – unification of many and varied kinds of peoples, races, ethnicities, etc. in the world.   Truly, an international cause!

The “message” of international union is the featured highlight of Islam, which is to destroy and replace Israel as the Chosen of GOD.

* Muslims of Islam, pride themselves on the fact that the religion has captivated all races and ethnicities around globe as it intends and whose mission is subdue all peoples under the edicts of its Prophet and his deity, or at least dying trying – Shahdeen, i.e., martyrdom…the “ticket” to eternal Paradise.

The madness of Esau’ violent militancy is so strong and especially unwarranted, that GOD Is going to cover him with shame. 

Shame because, Esau’s argument and acts of vengeful violence in the long conflict is based on half truths, falsehoods and outright lies, even attempting to implicate the Lord GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob-Israel in his crime.

However, the “cut off” from GOD Is not merely a physical punishment for a period of time, but also Esau-Edom’s heritage and it will be forever.

This terrifying event from The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY upon Edom-Mt Esau is due to his wild, “violence” against his brother Jacob, “…shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off forever.”  GOD Was/is not going to put up with Esau’s unwarranted extreme violence against his brother any longer.

This whole scenario begins with the threat-promise, then acts of violence and concluding with GOD’s Retribution upon the perpetrator of the “violence” that gets the attention of the LORD GOD HIMSELF.

It appears that the certain ambassador with a certain message of violence against Jacob, the brother of militant Esau, is none other than the Prophet Mohammed and his message from the deity of the Islam. “…an ambassador is sent among the nations, “Arise you, and let us rise up against her in battle.” :01; and “For  your violence ” :10

When Jews refused to surrender their heritage to militant Mohammed, the prophet of Islam viciously-militarily attacked them and everyone else who not submit themselves to him and his message.

The religion of the scholars teaches that Islam is supreme over all other spiritual understandings of life that is society, government, religion, and thereby can order its’ adherents to destroy them all. 

However, Judaism of the House of Jacob-Israel is especially by no means to have the rule or dominance over that of the militant Esau’s, no to have equality with Edom, but is rather to be totally destroyed-final solution.

With Koran promises from Allah of heavenly pleasures, including an abundance of sexual intercourse with virgins, et al, the wily scholars order the “swordsmen”, men of extreme violence, fear and terrors – “Te’mans mighty men” - militants to annihilate Israel or perish as a martyrs, because for Jacobs’ House and faith to live, is the death of Esau’s and its’ Islamic deity.

In Esau’s thinking, there can’t be two promised nations, but rather only one and that is his own under Islam.  This is why the “wise-men” have taught the peoples of Islam to madly shout “Death to Israel” in the “Arab Streets”   

It is ominous, foreboding and extremely troubling to Muslim scholars, yet joy to the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacobs that since May 15,1948, which is the date of Israel’s re-birth as a spiritual political entity according to the prophecies of the Hebrew prophets. 

The return of Jews to Eretz Israel is the lead witness against Islam conceived out of resentment in the house of Esau.   Terrified of the prospects of the May 15,1948, the Arab-Muslim scholars of Esau-Edom’s House was, “Al Naghbar” that is, “The Catastrophe” – the end of Islam.

The re-birth of Israel is catastrophic to the existence of the Koran-Islam and consequently, the house of Esau, even the very existence of Allah the deity of the religion. 

Bereft of the Promise & the Blessings derived from the Abraham Inheritance and Birth Rights, the Islam of the Koran and its’ message brought abroad by the messenger-prophet, was the last vestige of hope for Esau’s House.  

Arab scholars have taught from the time of Mohammed – messenger-prophet to now, that “the” Jews are forever cursed of GOD due to their rebellion, rejection the truth, spurning the Love of GOD, even rejection of Jesus Christ, the House, the Legacies and Heritages thereof, including the Land of Jacob-Israel is forever no more; but rather deceptive “wise-men” the House of Esau is now consider themselves to be the Chosen of GOD of via Abraham and Ishmael and Mohammed in the stead of Israel.

As a result of the supposed eternal curse upon the House of Jacob-Israel, Esau thinks that he has regained that which his conniving brother “stole” or “tricked” him out of in antiquity, and that he is the now not merely the new, nor even replaced, but the original Chosen of GOD. 

Remember, it was Esau, the paternal twin brother of Jacob whom Isaac had chosen to give the Promise of the Inheritance, and the latter.

It is this mindset that gives Esau-Edom license and justification for the violence that he mercilessly perpetrates against his brother Jacob-Israel.

In the book, “The Meaning of The Holy Qur’an” by Abdullah Yusuf Ali, New Edition with Revised Translation and Commentary, American Trust Publications, these words are written in the teachings of the Koran concerning GOD Replacing Jacob as HIS Witness Jacob-with Esau…

C. 49. – “But those people have passed away,

Who promised to uphold the Law of Allah.

Their progeny having been found Unworthy, their place was taken

By a new people looking towards Makkah –

A new people with a new Messenger,

To bear witness to Allah’s Law,

To proclaim the truth, maintain

His Symbols, and strive and fight

For Unity in Allah’s Way.”

Essentially, the teaching says that the Hebrews, Israelites, the children of Jacob, modern Jews and Israeli’s abandoned the Will of GOD – Adonai, El El Elohim, et al, Whom the scholars erroneously associate the deity of Islam with, have lost “their place”.

The “wise-men” that the special identity has been transferred or  re-taken “by a new people looking to Mecca, with a new Messenger” bearing “witness” via a state of war with the whole world.

Yet, look and behold, that in the Holy Hebrew Scriptures it is written of Israel a message from GOD ALMIGHTY, “But now thus says the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and HE That formed thee O Israel, ‘Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art MINE.”  

“Ye are MY Witnesses, says the LORD, and My Servant whom I Have chosen; that you may know and believe ME, and understand that I Am HE: before ME There was no GOD Formed, neither shall there be after Me.  I, Even I, am The LORD; and Beside ME There is no Savior. 

I have declared, and have saved, and I Have showed, when there was not a strange god among you: therefore ye are MY Witnesses, says the LORD, that I am GOD.” Isaiah 43:1-9,10-1 

“Yet now hear, O Jacob MY Servant; and Israel, whom I Have chosen: Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I Told thee from that time, and have declared it?  Ye are MY Witnesses.  Is there not a GOD Beside Me?  Yea, there is no GOD; I Know not any.” 44:1-8

This is clear vision.  It is this very belief and practice is why Jews rightly rejected Mohammad and his deity as Messiah.

And perhaps, this could be the very cause for which the nations - peoples of the world finally turn on Esau and his religious polity of fear and death that they entrapped themeselves in.  * Verse 2

 

Part II

11. In the day that you stood on the other side, in the day that strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even you were as one of them.

Throughout history, there has been an ongoing “conflict” between the children of Esau-Edom and those of Jacob-Israel.  Also included in this dispute are the children of Ishmael, the half and elder brother of Isaac, both sons of Abraham, founder of The Faith.

  • Ishmael, the son of Abraham and Hagar, and Egyptian-African-Black woman
  • Isaac, the son of Abraham and Sarai – Sarah, the cousin of Abraham
  • Though Ishmael was the elder son, GOD Did not choose him to be the Promised Seed, the Heir of the Promise, but rather, it was reserved for Isaac the younger.

Ø      Only GOD Himself knows why HE Chose – chooses the younger Isaac instead of Ishmael…for on the surface, it seems unjust.

This conflict can be witnessed in the Torah and Tenach from the days of Genesis up through the times of the rebuilding of the wall and city of Jerusalem and Second Temple, during the prophetic eras of Ezra and Nehemiah and apparently to the destruction of Jerusalem and upgraded Second Temple in 70 AD by the Romans.

Often times the term “in the day” or “in that day” usually referred to a significant moment of either Blessings or Cursing – judgments or chastisements from GOD for or against Israel and/or other nations.

When Roman legions destroyed Jerusalem, “that day” set in motion two thousand (2,000) years of Jews, the children of Jacob-Israel into a state of turmoil, unsettledness, and wondering throughout the nations of the earth.  Hence, “wondering Jew”!

The third Diaspora of the Hebrews or Israelites!  It was/is an unprecedented catastrophe for the people of GOD.

“In the day” is mentioned twice in one verse, giving significance to the events of the time. 

GOD Notices something about what Esau did/will do “in the day”, which is the first in a series of offenses against Jacob in his “time of troubles” that caused GOD To bring about the kind of retribution that HE Worked/Will work on Edom.  They are:

  • you stood on the other side” Instead of standing with and aiding his brother (Jacob-Israel who is not only his brother, but his maternal twin –bone of his bone, flesh of his flesh, blood of his blood) , Esau simply stood around watching the whole disaster. 

~   Unlike Ishmael and Isaac, Esau and Jacob have the same mother and father, and even

      grandmother and grandfather. 

  • “even you were as one of them,” GOD Charges Edom as being “one of them”, because he was so obsessed with his own brothers demise that Esau applauded the Roman legions as they broke into Jerusalem waging “total war” slaughtering thousands of Jews (the children of his brother), destroying the Second Temple, and casting lots for the treasures, and taking away the survivors of the Jewish army, including the men, women and children into slavery.

 

  •  “…in the day that strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem., even you were as one of them,”  

12   But you should not have looked on the day of your brother in the day he became a stranger; neither should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither should you have spoken proudly in the day of distress.

“On the day” there were certain things that Esau should not have done as it relates to Jacobs “troubles” such as merely “looking on” and not helping him. 

Rather, Edom “looked on” searching for some way to take advantage of the situation that his brother was in “the day” that “he became a stranger (homeless, wonderer)”. 

Esau should not have “rejoiced over the children of Judah ‘in the day’ of their destruction.” 

Edom should not “have spoken proudly ‘in the day’ of distress.”

When the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and her inhabitants in 70 AD, the local Arabs “looked on”; “rejoiced”; and “spoke proudly” as they stood on “the other side” against ther brother Jacob.

Even as it is today, when terrible thing happens to Jews in Eretz Israel or elsewhere (such as a terrorist strike against Jewish civilians, or even a natural calamity or accident), so-called Palestinians and Arab Muslims the world over celebrate the tragedy, and speaking proudly, even in the name of the Islam.

And if that were not enough, the children of Esau seek opportunities to take advantage of tragic situations that befalls his brother Jacob as their ancient ancestors did in 70 AD.

13. You should not have entered in the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yes, you should not have looked on their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity.

Three (3) times in this verse, the LORD Mentions the word “calamity”, “calamity”, “calamity”.

Apparently when he “looked” and saw the calamity of what was happening to his rival brother, Jacob, Esau would “rejoice” and “speak proudly”, actually “entered into the * gate” of GOD’s People “in ‘the day’ of their calamity”.   

The word “gate” would have several meaning depending on the context in which it is being utilized such as:

  • An actual physical opening through which people and animals would pass through into or out of a walled city or town;
  • Often, the physical gate area was where the elders would gather to discuss matters of the communities and make decisions – or place of authority;
  • Anyone going uninvited through a gate into a city, as did the Romans into Jerusalem means that they have intent of taking the possessions and/or substances that belongs to the inhabitants thereof.

This is not only a physical entering into the destroyed Jewish city of Jerusalem seeking spoils, but also into the * authority of Jewish identity and “laid hands on their substance” – the inheritance from Abraham, Isaac, Jacob-Israel, claiming it as their own.

The “Day of calamity” is mentioned thrice, in which Esau chose to plunder Jacobs identity – birthright and “substance” – inheritance.

Mount Esau is attempting National Identity Theft.   Mt. Esau is seeking to replace Mt. Zion.  This is a part of what the LORD GOD Calls “The Controversy of Zion”.  It is also at the center of the Arab – Conflict with Israel.

By placing or building the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount of Zion, Esau has essentially brought the gate of Teman into the Sanctuary of the Place where the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has set HIS Earthly Throne.

14. Neither should you have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither should have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.

History records that whenever suffering Jews – Jacobs children attempted to escape calamities, the Arab House of Esau would seek to prevent them from doing so by standing in their ways against them and would even betray them over their enemies in the “day of distress”

A prime example of this constant attack upon the children of Jacob can be seen as far back as when Israel was being instructed by his GOD To leave the captivity of Babylon and return to Jerusalem to rebuild its wall and temple.

First, there is the case in which Jews were rebuilding the temple and the city of Jerusalem, until an international coalition of Arabs – the House of Esau/Edom campaigned against them to the King of Pershia and the work was stopped.  See Book of Ezra 4:1-24 Hebrew Holy Scriptures

Of course, the reconstruction effort was restored after a final attempt from the House of Esau to prevent the work.  See Ezra 5 & 6

  • Interestingly, it appears that some one(s) were networking other nations and peoples into a movement to stop the children of Jacob from achieving their GOD Ordained mission, even as we can observe in Obadiah’s vision that is some sort of effort against Jacob.  As there were ambassadors against the Jews in the times of Ezra, so is there an “ambassador” with a message as seen in the vision today.  Obadiah 1,2. 
  • As anyone can see, there are Arab forces today standing in the way of Israel’s progress.

Second, see the Book of Nehemiah 2:17 – 20; & 4:1-23

  • Again, Jews were facing a conspiracy led by the House of Esau to stop the building of the city of Jerusalem, even today, Arabs resist not only a viable State of Israel in the Eretz Israel with its borders, and Jerusalem, the Capitol of the Jews, but they are actually seeking to disposes the children of Jacob of their very Inheritance, Birthright and Promise, i.e. “Jacob’s substance”.

15. For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations: as you have done, it shall be done to you: your reward shall return upon your own head.

The “Day of the LORD” or “in That Day” is upon the nations as well.  Perhaps for their age-old resentment against and jealousy of Israel is why they are included with the fate of Esau;

 

According to the Holy Scriptures, the maturing of Israel and Eretz Israel ends the nations oppressions against the Children of Jacob/Israel.  It signals that their “cup of iniquity is nearly full” (rebellion against GOD’s Plan for and around Israel).

The nations have always had a vendetta against Israel most especially those of Christian Europe who like the Arab House of Esau “authorized” by it religion…Islam, have sought to usurp the identity of Jacobs Children and even steal their Birth Right, by any means necessary, especially by violence.  The Final Solution.

However, the GOD of their inheritance recalls the record of oppression against HIS Children and now in the Day of the LORD’s Judgment and HE will repay them for their unwarranted attacks upon Jacob.

16.  For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually, yes, they shall drink, and

       they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.

It seems that the nations of the world who have despised Israel and looked jealously upon his substance have “drunk” that very substance that belongs exclusively to Jacob and his children, that is, the claiming of Holy Things on Zion. 

Muslims have not been the only ones who has attempted to dispossess Jews of their status with GOD and replace them with themselves, but Christians have done even more so for the last 1800 years.

Perhaps, Bel-SHAZZAR, the Babylonian King, grand son of the great Nebuchanezar, and his party intoxicated with wine from the Holy Temple Vessels is the meaning of “drunk upon My Holy Mountain, which is Zion), is similar to what Muslim Arabs and Christian Europeans have done in attempting to rob Jacobs children of their Birth Right.  They have abused Zion, the Place where The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY Actually sits and rules from.

17.  But upon the mount of Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall posses their possessions.

While in that day, the nations-ethnicities-races who have oppressed Jacob-Israel through his long period(s) of calamity (s) wondering-dwelling in the wilderness(s) of death and mocked the Holiness of his GOD, Zion will be liberated finally and forever from them.  Jesus Christ calls “that day” the “fullness of the nations.”

Entering “the gate” of GOD’s people, “looked on their calamity”, “laid hands on their substance” the substance, which Esau and the nations sought to take, shall remain in their possession.

18.  And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and house of Esau for stubble, and they

     shall kindle in them; and there shall not be any remaining in the house of Esau; for the LORD has spoken it.

Perhaps, when the house of Esau is burned to the ground, his bewildered and homeless children will flee to the House of Jacob-Israel

The nation of Israel in Eretz Israel of twelve million (12,000,000) Jewish residents, is surrounded by over fifty million (50,000,000) Arabs, or children of the House of Esau!

Yet, the children of the House of Israel is able to not only hold them off, but indeed defeat the latter in military battle  as demonstrated in the past, and is politically, economically, and socially advanced over the House of Esau.

It is a horrible taboo or catastrophe for Muslims to live under the jurisdiction of Jews, because the Koran has damned and accused them of being cursed by GOD, or that which they call their deity.

However, contrary to their beliefs, the prophet Zechariah speaks of “the day” in which the House of Jacob is seen as a fire and the House of Esau as stubble to be burned…as indicated in verse 18.

“The governors of Judah shall say in their heart, “The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of Hosts their GOD.”  In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.” (Zechariah 12:5-6)

19. And they of the south shall posses the mount of Esau; and they of the plain of the Philistines: and they shall

      possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall posses Gilead.

Without controversy, all of Eretz Israel shall be placed into the possession of the House of Jacob.

As the House of Esau is burned to the ground, the inhabitants thereof will be homeless in every sense of the word “homeless and as Jews, they will “wonder” about without a home or direction – essentially and especially spiritually lost without religion, because Islam and those who perpetrated it upon Esau’s children and the world is deceased

Finally, the “bully” religion of violence and death is dead and Muslims the world over will finally be free at long last from the terrorist oppressions of Islam.

The greatest wound and loss to the House of Esau is that of the Islamic religion.

Due to masses of Muslims finally admitting to that which was “hidden” is in their hearts (that for 1400 years, they had been hood-winked, wool pulled over their eyes, bamboozled by the so-called scholars – wise men) Islam is now defunct in the House of Esau – Edom. How are the things of Esau searched out!  How are his hidden things sought up!

20.  And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall posses that of the Canaanites, even to Zarepath; and    

       the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south.

This is what the Arab-Muslims fear greatly about Israel.  Muslim scholars can read Obadiah and all of the Holy Hebrew Scriptures as Rabbinical, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, scholars can, and know that the Torah proclaims that the children of Israel-Jacob, son Isaac, son of Abraham, the Jews will indeed inherit the Promise after all.  The Arab conflict with Israel will be at long last over.  Peace shall reign forever for all humankind as indicated by Isaiah 2:1-3 and Micah 5:2-

21.  And saviors shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’s.

Perhaps, these “saviors” are individuals, groups, entities, et al are drawn by GOD, The SAVIOR of all humankind as well as Jews, “up onto” Mount Zion for the purpose of delivering – judging – championing the cause of Israel, while chiding the House of Esau.

Also, these individuals could be Arab, Palestinian and/or other Muslims throughout the world who rise up in intifada – not against Israel, but rather the “wise men” (scholars) and the “mighty men” (terrorists and rulers – kings, presidents for life, dictators, etc.) all Islamic-fascist, who have for 1400 years suppressed the peoples of the world in the name of a religious politic.

According to certain Holy Hebrew Scriptures, as the House of Esau is “burning down”, the homeless Muslims – Arabs receive the change of heart concerning Israel and Jews, while simultaneously, the keepers (leaders) of the House of Jacob too will begin to experience similar internal shifts from the Hand of ADONAI – HESHEM.

Consequently, Muslims are invited by Jews to be co-inheritors of the Promise and the Common Wealth of the House Hold of Israel.

In actuality, for all the talk about being Arabs, et al, the children of Esau are actually Hebrews as is their brother Jacob.  Therefore, is it only righteous that when the appointed time comes, GOD will place it in the hearts of the Rabbis in Jerusalem and other part of the earth to open the door of the House of Jacob, that is, the Common Wealth of Israel, to the homeless children of Esau.

Also, even Arab children of Ishmael will also be compelled and drawn to the House of Israel for the salvation that is there of the Jews.

This is that profound healing between Jacob and Esau, and even Ishmael and Isaac in which they together will bury “the Isaac” of the dispute – and blind conflict, finally living in peace and prosperity as all Children of Abraham under the LORD GOD ALMIHTY HIMSELF ruling HIS Kingdom out of ZION as The KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS.

The Addendum

Ezekiel 25 -

12.  Thus saith the LORD GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against the House of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath            

         greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them.         

13.  “Thus saith the LORD GOD; I will also stretch out my hand  upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Te’ man;  and they of Dedans shall fall by the  sword.

14.  And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel:  and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the LORD GOD.

15.  Thus saith the  LORD GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with despiteful heart, to destroy it for old hatred;

16.  Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD; Behold, I will stretch out my hand upon the Philistines,  and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast. (Gaza?)

17.  And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I Am The LORD, when I shall lay vengeance upon them.”

Let there be peace on earth and Good Will toward humanity Shalom in Jerusalem!
