in the day of the lord
In The Day Of The Lord
  • Know There Is No Escaping God’s Judgment
    • The Edomites – Descendants of Esau. Stayed at strife with Jacob’s descendants. Allied with enemies of the Israelites.
    • Even though the Edomites felt untouchable, God would bring them down (verses 1-4)
      • High place gave sense of security and invincibility
      • Pride deceived them – Overestimated self. Nothing could bring them down. Forgot about God!
      • Trusted strength, position, success (vs. 8-9)

In The Day Of The Lord
  • Know There Is No Escaping God’s Judgment
    • God’s judgment was a matter of certainty (vs 5-9)
      • Notice the tenses of the words – It’s mixed up. Why?
      • Only God is so powerful and knowing that He can speak of things yet to come as already happened!
      • Destruction would be complete – Every corner searched. No food, money, strength, wisdom
      • Even their allies would turn against them. Edom was no longer of use to their allies. They’ve got nothing

In The Day Of The Lord
  • Know There Is No Escaping God’s Judgment
    • Sometimes God executes punishment in this life, sometimes it’s not until eternity, but the reality of God’s judgment is certain (2 Cor. 5:6-10)
      • See many days ahead? Life in good order?
      • Seem like you are getting away with doing wrong? Have we escaped all consequences in life?
      • Paul to Jews at Rome: Do you think you’ll escape? Presume on His grace & mercy? (Rom. 2:1-4)
      • We cannot soar beyond God’s stretch! It is either a comfort or unsettling. Purpose & motivation
in the day of the lord3
In The Day Of The Lord
  • Know You Cannot Glory In Another’s Troubles
    • Not just pride, but a violence problem (10-11)
      • Indifference was violence. Doing nothing was set alongside those who actually harmed. No apathy!
      • They could’ve done something, anything, but chose to do nothing to help. No relief, aid, exile
      • Could they not have called in favors from allies?
      • This wasn’t just any old nation, this was the children of Jacob. This was brethren. This was family!

In The Day Of The Lord
  • Know You Cannot Glory In Another’s Troubles
    • Also, they rejoiced with those who wept (12-13)
      • Imagine being an Edomite – Birthright, blessing… Great nation… Canaan… God’s blessing
      • They GLOATED! Bragged joyfully. Rooted on those who would devastate God’s people (Psalm 137:7)
      • Justifiable? Israelites were being punished by God for their sinfulness & unfaithfulness. Deserved it!
      • A pride issue – Boasted! This would never happen to them. They were better than them. Felt strong, especially compared to Israelites weakened state
in the day of the lord5
In The Day Of The Lord
  • Know You Cannot Glory In Another’s Troubles
    • They actually took advantage of God’s people during their day of distress (vs. 13-14)
      • Warning: Look not, enter not, stand not… Now they would actively participate in harming them
      • Would they loot the city? Hurting. Defenseless. Vulnerable. It’d be selfish and unmerciful
      • Would they stand at the crossroads? Meet refugees at road, capture, and turn them back over.

In The Day Of The Lord
  • Know You Cannot Glory In Another’s Troubles
    • Do we rejoice with those who weep or weep with those who rejoice? (Prov. 17:5; 24:17-18)
      • Most of the time we have no problem weeping with troubling news, even when its total strangers. We don’t know anything of their good or bad
      • If its our enemies, people not living right, those who have wronged us? Satisfaction? Pleasure?
      • We may justify the gloating in our minds
      • An ungodly spirit of prideful self-righteousness
      • Even if people suffer for wrong, it’s not right to gloat!
in the day of the lord7
In The Day Of The Lord
  • God’s People Will Stand Triumphant
    • The Edomites joyed over the Israelites, but their day of judgment is coming (15-18)
      • Not just the Edomites, but all nations who follow their lead will be handled by the Lord
      • Seems they’d get away… but God sees, God remembers, God is just to judge
      • They would be completely wiped out. They disappeared off the pages of history forever!
in the day of the lord8
In The Day Of The Lord
  • God’s People Will Stand Triumphant
    • See contrast between the Israelites and Edomites. Some from Mt. Zion would escape… they’d be a fire and Edom a stubble. They would revive. What seemed like a ruin was a purging!
    • Final picture of hope amidst trouble (19-21)
      • In the moment God’s people looked destroyed, like losers, and the lost looked triumphant
      • God’s people will stand where the Edomites then stood. They’d be triumphant. God would restore
      • More literal fulfillment? More spiritual fulfillment?
in the day of the lord9
In The Day Of The Lord
  • God’s People Will Stand Triumphant
    • A needed reminder for God’s people regardless where they live and when they live… God’s people will be victorious (Rom 12:19; Jer. 12:1-5)
      • What do we do when what we believe doesn’t line up with what we see? Wicked fare better than the righteous? No consequences?
      • Cannot wear ourselves out mentally, emotionally, spiritually trying to make sense of everything. That’s not what we’ve been charged to do.
      • Our job is to serve God, trust God, and tell of His name to a lost world. That’s how we fight this war!
