Obadiah 15-18 foretells the annihilation by fire of an entire nation, the House of Esau, which today are the Palestinians. Israel possesses the “Weapon of Fire” (Fuel Air Bomb) that could fulfill this prophecy precisely! Understanding how Israel is planning to carry out this annihilation soon is critical to comprehending events in Israel today between the Palestinians and Israel. Consider the somber prophecy of Obadiah 18: ‘The house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame, but the house of Esau shall be stubble; they shall kindle them and burn them and consume them, and there shall be no more survivor of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken it.’ [Verse 18] This prophecy states that the nation of Israel [the combined houses of Jacob and Joseph] shall have some kind of a fire build up within them that will suddenly explode outward to consume the House of Esau in 100% annihilation. Since a weapon of fire does not travel outward from its source too far, we can assume that this House of Esau must be living in close proximity to Israel at the moment of this conflagration. Thus, the major question is, ‘who is the House of Esau today’?
It is the Palestinians, led currently by Mahmoud Abbas. You will be shocked to learn that God’s Holy Spirit has been working since 1990 to convince the Israeli leadership of the need to annihilate the Palestinians. You will be further surprised to learn that the huge security fence Israel has erected around the Palestinian towns and cities will prove to be an indispensable tool in their strategy to carry out this complete destruction, as God has foretold 2,500 years ago. We wish to reiterate that we take no satisfaction from this unbelievable prophecy of carnage, but a lot of people are going to be searching for valid answers in a hurry once this carnage does occur. They have to look no further for correct answers than this prophecy in Obadiah.
