Judgment of Edom

Jeremiah 49:19 “Behold, like a lion coming up from the jungle of the Jordan against a perennial pasture, I will suddenly make him run away from her. And I will appoint over her whomever I choose. For who is like me? Who will summon me? What shepherd can stand before me?” Amen brethren! Wow, God’s judgment is sure and swift! He utterly hates Edom, as Paul confirms in Romans 9 explaining God’s sovereign election of His people. As a result, God confirms His sovereignty again by reminding Edom who He is. Who is like God? No one! God is the Creator while we have created mindsets, God is too infinite to fully grasp or measure, and we will always be learning more about Him as we seek Him. He cannot be summoned as if He were a servant. God allowed Himself to be that Once and for all in the Person of Jesus Christ. When Chrit returns, His judging glory will bre revealed to all of us as some will be saved and judged for their good works, and others condemned for not having Christ as Lord and Savior. God is the ultimate Shepherd who herds and cares for His people. For Edom, He would appoint shepherds to rule and subject authority over Edom, which He did through the vessel of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. God bless you all.
