The Prophecy of Edom

Edom is going to play the central role in the Campaign of Armageddon (see my commentary on Revelation Ex- The Eight Stage Campaign of Armageddon). Edom will be the place where the final remnant of Isra’el is hiding out during the second half of the Great Tribulation at Bozrah. Amazingly enough, Edom is the location of the Second Coming of Christ (see my commentary on Isaiah Ej – The Oracle Concerning Edom).

When the Lord returns, He returns to Edom. Isaiah will be standing at some high point in the land of Isra’el looking to the southeast to Bozrah. Itis located about 25 miles southeast of the southern end on the Dead Sea in what is today Jordan. Isaiah says: Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah? He sees a very graphic figure coming toward him from the land of Edom and the city of Bozrah. The figure he sees is the Messiah. (See my commentary on Isaiah Kg – The Second Coming of Jesus Christ to Bozrah).

When Christ returns to set up His thousand year millennial Kingdom, Edom will become a burning wasteland. No one will be able to live there except the demons disguised as jackals, owls, desert creatures, hyenas, wild goats, falcons, and night creatures. The Spirit will gather them together in the burning wasteland of Edom. There, they will endure perpetual devastation. This burning will not be quenched night and day; its smoke will rise until the thousand years have ended. They will possess it and dwell there from generation to generation until the Millennium is over. This is what will become of Esau’s rebellion against God. (See my commentary on Isaiah Gi – Edom’s Streams Will Be Turned into Pitch).
