  • Hosea is prophesying the reasons God will send Israel into captivity:1. They slaughtered Ahabs people when God only pronounced judgment on Ahab and Jezebel and their false prophets.2. Israel now worshiped materialism, other gods, and pleasure. They forsook the Lord!2Ti3:4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, *

  • Hos 1:2 When the LORD first spoke through Hosea, the LORD said to Hosea, "Go, take to yourself a wife of harlotry and have children of harlotry; for the land commits flagrant harlotry, forsaking the LORD." Forsake fall away from, depart to show ones backsideHos 4:12 For a spirit of harlotry has led them astray, And they have played the harlot, departing from their God. *

  • 1Ti 4:1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,



  • Heb 3:12 Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. Heb 3:13 But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called "Today," so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.


  • 2Pe 3:17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, 2Pe 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. *

  • Hos 4:1 Listen to the word of the LORD, O sons of Israel, For the LORD has a case against the inhabitants of the land, Because there is no faithfulness or kindness Or knowledge of God in the land. Hos 4:2 There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. They are like America today*

  • Hos 4:18 Their liquor gone, They play the harlot continually; Their rulers dearly love shame. Hos 4:19 The wind wraps them in its wings, And they will be ashamed because of their sacrifices. Hos 9:17 My God will cast them away Because they have not listened to Him; And they will be wanderers among the nations. (70AD 1917)*

  • Act2:38 Peter {said} to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

  • Hos 14:9 Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; Whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, And the righteous will walk in them, But transgressors will stumble in them. Hosea ends with:*

  • The Knowledge of GodHosea challenges Israel to know the Lord.Their lives indicated that they didnt know the Lord (4:1-3)Evil actions indicate a lack of experience and knowledge of God.They rejected Gods law and prophetsMy people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge (4:6).He urged people to press on to the fuller knowledge of the Lord (6:3)

  • Hsa 6:3 "So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth."*

  • Yahwehs covenant love in JesusRomans 9: 24 even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles? 25 As he says in Hosea: "I will call them `my people' who are not my people; and I will call her `my loved one' who is not my loved one," 26 and, "It will happen that in the very place where it was said to them, `You are not my people,' they will be called `sons of the living God.'"

  • In JesusWe are chosen to be a people, and called to that destiny.We are redeemed from the power of sin and death.We are blessed with all things necessary for life and godliness 2 Peter 1:3-4

  • 2 Peter 1:3-43 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

  • The Charge Against Israel Against the nation..against you who live in the land: There is no faithfulness, no love, no acknowledgment of God in the land. (4:1)my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge (4:6)

  • Against the priests in particularThe more the priests increased, the more they sinned against me; they exchanged their Glory for something disgraceful. They feed on the sins of my people and relish their wickedness. (4:7,8) The imminent sentenceFor I will be like a lion to Ephraim, like a great lion to Judah. I will tear them to pieces and go away; I will carry them off, with no one to rescue them. (5:14)

  • Their Appeal Rejected The call to repentanceLet us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth. (6:3)

  • Rejected because of Israels true condition..Your love is like the morning mist, like the early dew that disappears. (6:4)For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgement of God rather than burnt offerings. (6;6)

  • Real RepentanceThe Lord presents this problem with the illustration of dew and a morning fog. They do not survive the heat of day.Jesus also spoke about the necessity of enduring to the end. Endurance is the stuff of real faith. Saving faith is enduring faith. For this reason you are called to endure.

  • Jam 1:23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; 24 for {once} he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. 25 But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the {law} of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.
