Who is Edom in end times Bible prophecy?


Genesis 25:27–28, Esau vs. Isaac. There are only two types of people on this earth: Esaus and Jacobs. Ponder or discuss this for a moment. Consider, for example, the fact that hanging on either side of Yeshua on the cross, spiritually speaking, there was a “Jacob” and an “Esau.” (Read Luke 23:39–43 and discuss.) We see the same thing in Matthew 24:39–41. (Discuss.)

What type of person was Esau? He was described as a cunning hunter. Nimrod was the only other person in Scripture termed “a hunter.” What kind of person would a hunter have been then compared to a farmer or herdsman? Esau was a man of the field. Field in Scripture is a metaphor for the world (see Matt 13:38). Esau was a profane (unhallowed, worldly, ungodly) man (Heb 12:16). He had no esteem for things of eternal value. That is why he sold his birthright. He lived for the moment and had no eye for, hope in, or faith toward the future. He sought instant gratification of his sensual nature. His god was his belly. He disdained and dishonored his family heritage and those things that were highly esteemed by his father and grandfather. In Gen 26:34–35, we see, to the great grief of his parents, Esau marrying one of the local heathen Canaanite girls. He did not honor his parents or respect their wishes and marry inside the faith.

Do these traits describe some unbelievers that you know, and even some believers? Perhaps you were like this before you were saved. Do we see many Esau-types running around among the younger generation today?

Genesis 25:30, Esau…Edom. Many, if not most of the modern Moslems (especially the Arabs) trace their lineage back if not biologically then spiritually to Continue reading


The West’s Idols and High Places Are Being Attacked

Lightning 14747593

Ezekiel 6:3–5, High places…idols…corpses. As a judgment against the backslid and idolatrous “mountains of Israel” (Ezek 6:1), YHVH promises to bring a sword against his people as they are worshipping their idols instead of him.

The “mountains of Israel” in this instance is a poetic and prophetic Hebraism for the nations of Israel that YHVH has scattered around the world because of his judgments against their sin.

In this modern age, few people bow down to literal idols, but idolatry is as rampant now as it was in ancient times. Any person, thing or idea that gets in the way of or hinders a person from worshipping and obeying Elohim is an idol to that person. It may be money, sex, drugs, education, power, sports, philosophies, entertainment or pleasure.

The “mountains of Israel” today are largely the Christian nations of the world, which are backslid spiritually.

Typically, YHVH raises up Israel’s enemies to punish his backslid people in hopes they will repent of their sinful ways and return to him. The biblical Edom (or the jihadist Moslems) are YHVH’s end times paddle by which he is spanking his wayward people.

So what are the high places of the Christian nations where their idols are located that Edom is attacking resulting in slain corpses being strewn about? Think of the places where Edom has been detonating bombs and spraying bullets in their attempts to massacre the “people of the book” (as the Koran calls them), who are the Jews and the Christians. The West’s high places of idol worship include sports arenas and sporting events, Christmas parties, schools, night clubs, “gay” night clubs, financial centers, churches and other places of religious activity, places of governmental authority and military installations to name a few. All these high places where idolatry occurs represent the gods and idolatrous concepts of post-Christian Israelites who have rejected Elohim for their idols.

These are YHVH’s judgments upon his people to bring them to repentance.


Islam and the Modern “Progressive” Movement

The so-called “progressive” liberal philosophical (called Progressivism) movement in the U.S. and other Western nations, broadly speaking, has one thing in common with Islam: they both hate YHVH Elohim — the God of the Bible — and those who follow and teach His word, the Bible. Many “progressives” and Koran-adherent Islamists or Moslems are currently waging an all-out war against Elohim’s people all over the world. Though they are two different ideological groups and are not formally united, they’re united in that they have a common enemy. The spiritual force driving both of them is Satan the devil, the god of this world, who is behind the spirit of Antichrist, which both “progressives” and Koran-adherent Moslems, by their actions and philosophies, advocate and are aggressively promoting globally.

Devil 32200902

Presently in Africa, the Middle East and Near East, Koran-adherent Moslems are persecuting, enslaving, raping, exiling, stealing property from and genocidally exterminating Christians and Jews as per the instructions of the Koran. Concurrently, the “progressives” in America and the West are doing the same thing, but in a different way. “Progressives” are using the political parties, judicial systems, educational systems, the media and the entertainments industries they control to exile or exterminate Christians from the marketplace, political arena, the media, educational systems and the entertainment industry. “Progressives” are murdering Bible-followers verbally through every media and electronic mouthpiece available to them. Like their Muslim counterparts, they are using a corrupt court system, a wicked political establishment and any other means available to them to deprive Christians of liberty, property, and to “rape” them economically by depriving them of the freedom to run their own commercial enterprises as their biblically-ordered conscience dictates and to openly and freely practice their religion in the public square and even, at times, to freely preach or communicate Bible truth.

Although most so-called “progressives” won’t come out openly in favor of Islam, they nonetheless share the same hatred of Christians as do Koran-adherent Moslems, and “progressives” are doing everything possible to promote the Islamization of our government, schools and other social institutions at the expense of our traditional Judeo-Christians biblical values.

With regard to the agenda that “progressives” and Moslems share, the oft-heard adage, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” comes to mind. In this case, both groups hate YHVH Elohim, His Bible and His followers. This then unites them, de facto, as allies, which goes a long way to explaining the “progressives’” aggressive promotion of Islam in America and other Western nations, and their turning a blind eye toward the atrocities Moslems are committing against Christians and Jews worldwide. It’s not that the “progressives” love Islam; it’s that they hate the Bible so much that they’re willing to form an uneasy, philosophical alliance of sorts with Islam to help them rid the planet of the Bible and its followers.

Make no mistake about it, Satan the devil, YHVH Elohim’s archenemy, is behind it all, and he is the ultimate enemy of Bible followers. Thankfully, the devil has already been defeated by Yeshua’s victory over sin, death and the grave (1 Cor 15:55–58), and he’s simply living on borrowed time until Yeshua returns to finalize his victory over him and banish him for good (Rev 20:1–3; 7–10). Until then, the lovers of biblical truth and freedom must stand firm and united against Satan and his earthy minions (Eph 6:10–18; 2 Cor 10:4–6) in the name of Yeshua and through His blood (Rev 12:11; Luke 10:19; Rom 16:20).

I leave you with this exhortative question from the Book of Psalms —

Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? (Psalm 94:16


The spirit of Antichrist is in the White House!

Shame on President Obama for his idiotic comments at the National Prayer Breakfast linking the acts of some Christians with the murderous jihadists cutting people’s heads off and burning people alive! The President reveals how vacuous his understanding is of Islam, history, Christianity and the Bible. Or, is he simply a lying propagandistic spinmeister who knows the facts, but could care less about them in an effort to force his ideological agendas upon the American people?!

I feel like we’re living in Goebbels Germany, or that I’m reading the Pravda of the former Soviet Union.

First, the Koran tells its followers to spread its faith by dismembering and murdering its enemies. History records that Mohammed did this. On the other hands, Yeshua/Jesus told his followers to love your enemies and his disciples followed his example.

Second, true disciples of Yeshua do not behead, crucify or burn their enemies. A thousand years ago when some “Christians” did this in medieval Europe, this was aberrant not normative Christianity. What the Muslims are doing to their enemies is normative not aberrant Islam according to the Koran. Go read the Koran for yourself and you’ll see what I’m saying is correct.

Third, the Crusades were in defensive response to the jihadist Muslims of that day that had taken over major parts of southern Europe and were moving northward quickly. This is history 101. As a former college professor, Mr. Obama doesn’t know this? Yeah right! So what’s his point?

The fact is, we have Edom in the White House, which is the spirit of Antichrist. Period!


The Muslim Menace – The “New” Nazis

This is a long read, but I perused it in about an hour and got the gist of it pretty quickly. It’s important that we stay well informed on these issues, since fundamental Islamist terrorists have vowed to take their jihad to western, Christian countries and everywhere else. We’re in a spiritual battle between the forces of light and darkness, good and evil and YHVH Elohim/Messiah Yeshua and Satan and his forces. As believers in Yeshua, we’re in the front lines whether we admit it or not. Take a moment to become more familiar with one aspect of the enemy’s attack against us by reading this well-documented article.

Islam 3-5747968


I have known and been a fellow employee with Muslims. The Muslims I have known personally in America are peaceful, law-abiding citizens. Their version/brand of Islam is very different than that of the violent militants. A comparison could be made regarding the once highly active Irish Republican Army. They claimed to be Christians. But, most Christians in the world would not recognize them as true followers of Y’shua.

This writing is focused primarily on Violent Militant Muslim Fundamentalists (millions of people in the Middle East – many more than the IRA mentioned above) and totalitarian Muslim governments. My “religious” identification is one of being a “Hebrew” (“one who has crossed over”) to being a follower of the Torah living and Torah expanding Y’shua The Messiah.

Terrorist actions in recent years have prompted me to do some revision of a previous writing I composed regarding the obvious connection of Violent Militant Islam with human slavery, brutality and sex trafficking of women and children. It should not come as a surprise that people who have such disrespect for other human beings would be those most responsible for terrorism in the world today. In every generation satan will find organizations to do his bidding on a large scale. In some cases they are destroyed. In other cases, such as Islam, satan was preparing them for “the post Nazi world.”

Many Western Muslims claim that it is wrong to rejoice over someone’s death. Apparently they are not of the same denomination as the Palestinians who were dancing with joy over the death of over 3,000 multinational civilians working in the Twin Towers 9/11/2001.

Chapter 1: Dark Ages “Christianity” & The IRA 

Some will point to “Christianity” of the Irish Republican Army’s Northern Ireland revolution (1969-2005) and the Dark Ages (c.500-1500 C.E.) and ask, “What is the difference between modern Islam and Christianity?”

1.) The IRA revolution was a political war staged by criminals. It was not a religious war. That is clearly evidenced by Protestants and Catholics around the world opposing the revolution. The IRA was partially sponsored by a small number of politically motivated anti-British Americans and by Muslims in Lybia. Once America and other Western nations got serious about addressing the issue, the revolution came to an end.

2.) One major difference is that “Dark Ages Christianity” was in the “Dark Ages” (about 500-1500 A.D.) That was then. This is now. Human institutional “Christianity” was plagued with factional wars similar to the war of Sunnis against Shiites.

Many of the smaller Christian groups (like the modern day Amish) fled to places like Switzerland, then America. Among the larger groups (Catholic, Lutheran & Presbyterian), through many years of fighting, no one group was able to dominate.

This in combination with the advent of the time period known as the enlightenment (light coming to ages of darkness) generated a standoff or stalemate. This allowed for the formation of a better way – the Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution. American Christian leaders, such as William Bradford urgently petitioned for the separation of the government from any official religion.

3.) A matter of Character: While Y’shua taught protection for children, Mohammed exploited children, even marrying an 8-year-old child!  Many of his modern followers do the same. Reuters news (9/10/13) reported the death of an 8 year old bride who experienced uterine rupture and fatal internal bleeding after her “husband” had intercourse with her in Yemen.

Y’shua taught moral integrity and honesty. Mohammed started empire building through attacking caravans – stealing their goods while killing anyone who got in his way. He made peace treaties with cities, violated them and murdered every man, woman and child in them (see Numbers 9 & 2 Timothy 3:3 in KJV). Y’shua taught change as a matter of the heart and peace in living. Mohammed taught and lived conversion through violence and war.

“Christian” religious wars came about because people did not follow the teachings and example of the one they claimed to follow (Y’shua). Muslim wars come about because people are following his teachings and example.

If you are a Muslim, you may not like to face the truth of archaeology and history.  Reality/truth didn’t change because the lies I believed didn’t agree with it. Reality/truth will not change to fit lies you choose to believe either.

At this early time in the 21st century, we see hypocrites and cowards hiding in caves who do not even put themselves in harm’s way, sending ignorant gullible young people to their deaths through murderous-homicide-suicide bombings with a promise of a paradise in which they can indulge their lustful appetites for sexually exploiting a harem of women. So, women not only get to be property and sex slaves in this life, they get the same in the next. Now there’s something for women to look forward to!

Do people who make this comparison (between “Christianity” & Islam) suggest that we tolerate the satanically energized behavior of violent Islam because they are going through a stage of development?!

With “Christianity”: enough righteous people came together to force the Institutional “Christian” Church to cease its barbaric practices. There is no less an obligation on the part of righteous people today to force Islam to accept some basic principles of civility and respect for human life and rights.

Is Koran Burning Scriptural?

Question: In Acts 19:13–19 we read about a public book burning of occult books. The Scriptures commend this act and reveal that as a result, “the word of God prevailed.”

13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.  14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. 15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? 16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17 And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.

19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.


In todays news we read the following:

Florida pastor arrested before he could burn 2,998 Korans

Associated Press


I don’t know this pastor, but based on what I read in the Scriptures, and based on the fact the Koran is a demonic book (I have read it cover to cover), I for one will be praying for this  pastor. Will you join me?

In the mean time, take a look at one of my earlier posts entitled, “What the Koran Really Says,” at http://hoshanarabbah.org/blog/2013/06/01/what-the-koran-really-says/.

I am in no way advocating violence against Muslims. We are to love them along with everyone else for whom Yeshua died. As YHVH gives us the opportunity, we should share the gospel with them (along with all people) in a loving and powerful way as directed by the Holy Spirit. Many of them are enslaved in a demonic system and don’t know better. Pray for them.

At this point, the big question is this: If this were a Muslim cleric, or an atheist burning Bibles instead of Korans, would they be arrested? Would it make national headlines? Would anyone care besides Bible believers? I think you know the answer — sadly!

Guys, in our society, we all know that it’s open season on anyone or anything having to do with the Bible. The real enemy isn’t that human who is standing against Elohim and his Word, but the devil who is motivating them. Let’s never forget who that is!
