HOSEA DEALS IN GREAT DETAIL about Israel’s sin, the root of which was a lack of knowledge of God and His Holy Word. Crime and violence had reached a critical point; fear and misery prevailed in the land and it was all because Israel had rejected God’s holy law:“Hear the word of the LORD, You children of Israel, For the LORD brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land: “There is no truth or mercy Or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing and lying, Killing and stealing and committing adultery, They break all restraint, With bloodshed upon bloodshed. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” Hosea 4:1-2, 6

The lack of knowledge of who God truly is and what His Word says leads to (1) an ignorance about God’s redemptive love and His principles for life and (2) demonic deception, spiritual darkness and ultimately destruction as the fruit of our ways. Israel’s leaders: kings, priests and false prophets had led the people in turning away from God’s law deceiving the people into believing God was pleased with them. JUST LIKE TODAY.

Pastors, prophets, teachers, are leading people away from God. Preaching lascivious love and licentious grace, but not God’s redemptive love and God’s holy grace. Teaching them God is pleased with them. Instead of leading people into paths of truth and righteousness, they are telling people what they want to hear and no longer rebuking sin.

People hear about a hippy, sewn together Frankenstein Jesus, but without the Word of truth, they do not know the Almighty and holy God. Preachers are getting rich and drunk off the blood of the saints and most in the church are lukewarm at best consistently fornicating with the body, not committed or submitted.

I see many getting upset over the current atmosphere of society, but where were the voices of one crying in the wilderness when the president displayed the rainbow on the White House signifying the law of the land and calling it good? You were silent. Where were the voices when the transgender bathroom/ locker room was set up as a “good thing”?

Where were you when God’s laws were mocked and scorned? Most were silent. Silent in the pulpit. Silent in the church. Silent in your homes. Fear of man, fear of rejection and living for the approval of men has been set up as an idol and most refuse to preach the entire Word of God and now the land and people are suffering. “Where there is no vision, the people perish, but happy is he who keeps the law (God’s Word)” Proverbs 29:18Again, most have mistranslated this Scripture. It has nothing to do with setting a goal for your life nor is it a new year’s resolution. That’s nonsense.

The first part is predicated on the second part. “Vision” means “revelation”. When there is no clear revelation and bold declaration of God’s will and standards, God’s people or a nation lose Biblical conviction, cast off moral restraints and subsequently perish.

Enter the United States of America and her church. Christian leaders, it begins with you. Repent. Return to the Lord. Seek His face. Paul tells the young preacher to “Preach the Word!”“Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.” 2 Timothy‬ ‭4:2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

The Word of God brings healing (the washing of water by the Word) and the revelation of the Almighty, whereby we might NOT perish. This is the only way. We must welcome the Spirit of Grace who brings conviction of sin and leads and guides us into all truth. This is the job of the Holy Spirit. Not until these things happen: a falling down in mourning and repentance and the preaching of God’s holy Word and standard; can any kind of revival or reformation take place in our country, in our churches and ultimately in our homes. Unless there is repentance and a return to God’s holy Word and law, prepare for worse to come. #runyourrace
