  1. Esau - Past, Present and Future Esau – Past, Present and Future

  2. Study 5 "Who is this that cometh from Edom?" Esau – Past, Present and Future

  3. The Apocalypse in Obadiah “Edom, in the prophecies concerning the restoration of Israel’s kingdom in “the latter days,” is representative of the enemies of Jacob, banded together under the guardianship of Gog, who is then the Chief of the House of Esau. Obadiah had a vision of this Confederacy, occupying a similar relationship to Israel hereafter, that Edom did in the typical times of the prophet. Obadiah has placed on record the sentence that “Every one of the Mount of Esau shall be cut off by slaughter for ever, and shame shall cover them, because of their violence against Jacob;” that as Edom has drunk upon Yahweh’s holy mountain, (where also they revel to this day), so shall all the nations drink, and they shall be as though they had not been: for that upon Mount Zion shall be deliverance……” Bro. John Thomas – Eureka Vol. 1 pg. 46 Esau – Past, Present and Future

  4. The Great Conflict of the Apocalypse Zion Rome The Lamb The Beast The Bride A drunken harlot Mount Zion Seven hilled city New Jerusalem Babylon the Great The Holy City City of Sodom & Egypt God of Heaven God of the Earth Seal of the living God Mark of the Beast The Redeemed – 144,000 Number of the Beast – 666 He who is “faithful and true” The false prophet Jacob/Israel Esau/Edom Esau – Past, Present and Future

  5. Bro. Thomas on Isa. 41:11-16 “This has never come to pass since it was recorded by the prophet; for hitherto Jacob has been under the heel of Esau, whose metallic Image stands unbroken upon its feet of iron and miry clay. The work of the Second and Third Angels is to grind to powder the various metals of which it is composed; and to do the work so effectually that no place be found for the things they represent (Dan. 2:35).” Bro. Thomas – Eureka Vol. 5 pg. 50 Esau – Past, Present and Future

  6. Prophecy of the Latter Days 28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together….

  7. Nebuchadnezzar’s Image Babylonian Empire BC 606-539 Gold Silver Medo-Persian Empire BC 539-334 Grecian Empire BC 334-67 Brass Roman Empire BC 67-AD 476 Iron Iron & clay Modern Europe

  8. Esau and Nebuchadnezzar’s Image Esau was the fore-runner of all anti-Semitic nations who seek to destroy Israel. Gog (Russia) unites the territories of the four world empires to form the image power. The head (thinking power) is Babylon (Catholicism of the latter days). The Catholic-Russian alliance cements the image together. Esau – Past, Present and Future

  9. “El Elyon” and Armageddon – Ps. 83 Ps. 83 contains the title El Elyon – vv. 1 & 18. El Elyon first occurs in Gen. 14 (4 times) – context is a type of Armageddon. The context is of a confederacy of nations determined to destroy Israel – vv. 2-5. Vv. 9-12 refer to Gideon’s overthrow of the Midianites and to the destruction of Jabin and Sisera – both are types of Armageddon. Ten nations are listed – represents “all nations” who come against Israel – Zech. 14:1. Esau – Past, Present and Future

  10. Ps. 83 and Nebuchadnezzar’s Image V.6 – “The tabernacles of Edom(Babylon the Great), and the Ishmaelites (Muslim- Ezek. 38:5); of Moab, and the Hagarenes; V.7 - Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; V.8 - Assur (Assyria = Russia – Isa. 10:24; 30:31; 31:8; Mic. 5:5) also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot.” Esau – Past, Present and Future

  11. The context of Isa. 63:1-6 Preceded by Isa. 62:10-12 – a call for Israel to prepare to receive its Messiah. Followed by Isa. 63:7-19 – Yahweh’s mercy returns to Israel who plead for forgiveness – this is post-Armageddon. Isa. 63:1-6 is clearly therefore a reference to the events of Armageddon and beyond. The Jews have returned “in ignorance of the Messiahship of Jesus” (Elpis Israel pg. 445) hence it is they who enquire, “Who is this that cometh from Edom?” Esau – Past, Present and Future

  12. Who is this that cometh from Edom? Christ and the Saints come into the Land from Sinai via Mount Paran, the Arabah and Seir – Deut. 33:2; Ps. 68:4,17. However, Edom and Bozrah aretypical names inIsa. 63:1. Bozrah Mount Paran Petra Esau – Past, Present and Future

  13. The Deliverance of Jacob There are two stages to the deliverance of Jacob: Christ will “save the tents of Judah” first immediately after Armageddon – Zech. 12. Elijah will lead the Second Exodus for 40 years to recover all Jews outside the Land – Ezek. 20. Stage 1 Judah saved Stage 2 Armageddon The Second Exodus of Israel 40 years Esau – Past, Present and Future

  14. Treading the winepress alone Isa. 63:3 speaks of the Multitudinous Christ – Christ and the saints who are with him - Zech. 14:5; Ps. 149:6-9. “People” is plural and is rendered “peoples” by the R.V. – refers to the nations. Blood on garments is a symbol for conquests in war – see the context of Rev. 19:13 (cp. Song of Solomon 3:6). These and many other passages show Christ will not be alone in his conquest of the nations. Esau – Past, Present and Future

  15. Rev. 19:11-15 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a whitehorse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Esau – Past, Present and Future

  16. Rainbow = Covenant of peace –Gen. 9:11-16 White = righteousness Face as sun represents Christ as manifestation of Yahweh’s glory –Mal. 4:2 The Saints in glory surround Christ Cloud symbol of multitude –Heb. 12:1 The Triumph of the Rainbowed Angel Feet – Saints as instruments of judgement (fire) Roman Earth = Europe Mediterranean nations

  17. Babylon and Esau identified They are the plagues which cause Babylon the great city to fall. She falls, because of her wickedness in church and state; and of her sanguinary and merciless oppression of the saints and witnesses of Jesus, and of all the Jews and others she has slain upon the earth (ch. 17:6; 18:24). Jeremiah contemplating the terribleness of these “latter days” says, “Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith Yahweh Tz’vaoth, that I will break his yoke (the yoke of Esau’s house) from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of Jacob.” Bro. John Thomas – Eureka Vol. 5 pg. 48 Esau – Past, Present and Future

  18. Esau and Jacob in Prophecy Jer 31:10-11 “Hear the word of Yahweh, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. For Yahweh hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of himthatwas stronger than he.” Esau – Past, Present and Future

  19. Jacob – The Parable of Israel Jacob forced from his home by the hatred of Esau. Laboured under oppression in the house of Laban but prospered. Returned to the Land with anxiety because of Esau. His name changed and greatly humbled before being redeemed by God from the hand of Esau. Settled in the Land of Promise in peace. See the context ofJeremiah 30 & 31 Esau – Past, Present and Future
