HOSEA PREACHES GOD’S LOVE

  Home

HOSEA 11:1-4**WHEN ISRAEL WAS A CHILD, THEN I LOVED HIM, AND CALLED MY SON OUT OF EGYPT. AS THEY CALLED THEM, SO THEY WENT FROM THEM (THE MORE I CALLED ISRAEL THE FURTHER THEY WENT FROM ME) THEY SACRIFICED UNTO BAALIM, AND BURNED INCENSE TO GRAVEN IMAGES. I TAUGHT EPHRAIM ALSO TO GO (WALK), TAKING THEM BY THEIR ARMS; BUT THEY KNEW NOT THAT I HEALED THEM. I DREW THEM WITH CORDS OF LOVE; I LIFTED THE YOKE FROM THEIR NECK AND BENT DOWN TO FEED THEM. VERSE 12**EPHRAIM COMPASSETH (SURROUNDS) ME WITH LIES, AND THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL WITH DECEIT: BUT JUDAH YET RULETH WITH GOD…………

HOSEA 1:2-3**…………AND THE LORD SAID TO HOSEA, GO, TAKE UNTO THEE A WIFE OF WHOREDOMS AND CHILDREN OF WHOREDOMS: FOR THE LAND HATH COMMITTED GREAT WHOREDOM, DEPARTING FROM THE LORD. SO HE WENT AND TOOK GOMER THE DAUGHTER OF DIBLAIM; WHICH CONCEIVED, AND BARE HIM A SON.

HOSEA 3:1**………..GO YET, LOVE A WOMAN BELOVED OF HER FRIEND, YET AN ADULTERESS, ACCORDING TO THE LOVE OF THE LORD TOWARD THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, WHO LOOK TO OTHER GODS, AND LOVE FLAGONS OF WINE. (SHOW LOVE TO YOUR WIFE AGAIN, THOUGH SHE IS LOVED BY ANOTHER AND IS AN ADULTERESS. LOVE HER AS THE LORD LOVES THE ISRAELITES, THO THEY LOVE OTHER GODS, WINE, ETC.)

HOSEA 4:1-2**………….BECAUSE THERE IS NO TRUTH (ALL LIES) NOR MERCY (LOVE), NOR KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IN THE LAND. BY SWEARING, AND LYING, AND KILLING, AND STEALING, AND COMMITTING ADULTERY, THEY BREAK OUT, AND BLOOD TOUCHETH BLOOD.

HOSEA 6:7**BUT THEY LIKE MEN (LIKE ADAM) HAVE TRANSGRESSED THE COVENANT; THERE HAVE THEY DEALT TREACHEROUSLY AGAINST ME.

HOSEA 7:13**WOE TO THEM, BECAUSE THEY HAVE STRAYED FROM ME! DESTRUCTION TO THEM, BECAUSE THEY HAVE REBELLED AGAINST ME! I LONG TO REDEEM THEM BUT THEY SPEAK LIES AGAINST ME.

HOSEA 14:2**…….TURN TO THE LORD: SAY UNTO HIM, TAKE AWAY ALL INIQUITY (SINS), AND RECEIVE US GRACIOUSLY….VERSE 4** I WILL HEAL THEIR BACKSLIDING; I WILL LOVE THEM FREELY, FOR MINE ANGER IS TURNED AWAY FROM HIM. VERSE 9**WHO IS WISE, AND HE SHALL UNDERSTAND THESE THINGS? FOR THE WAYS OF THE LORD ARE RIGHT, THE JUST SHALL WALK IN THEM, BUT THE TRANSGRESSORS SHALL FALL THEREIN

NO MATTER HOW WICKED YOU ARE, IF YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE GOD, HE WILL BLOT OUT YOUR TRANSGRESSIONS.
