The Bible says, ” The Word of the LORD that came to Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah and in his days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel…The beginning of the Word of the LORD by Hosea.
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 1:1-3) Please, read on…
BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:
Don’t we serve a HOLY GOD? Well now, why would HE tell a man (not just a man – a Holy prophet) to marry a whore? What in the World does a Man of the Cloth have to do with a Woman of the World? When you hear about pastors chasing after whores, you pick up the telephone to call sister/brother so-in-so! Would you tell your son, go marry a prostitute? Rather, you may say, “If you marry that w-h-o-r-e, I will cut you out of my will!”
As you may know, the Story of HOSEA is a true story, but the LORD GOD used it for symbolism. The Children of Judah were backslidden from YAHWEH and the LORD GOD wanted them to know that HE is married to them. Literally, the Children of Judah (like their sister – the Children of Israel) were committing all kinds of sensational sins. Never mind, you can figure it out on your own. When I go into diversions, some of you cannot stand it. For now, you can Google the meaning of whoredom on your own.
Nonetheless, I want you to know that GOD is MARRIED to the backslidder!
(1) Some of you think that you’ve slipped away unnoticed but the LORD GOD has your telephone number, cell number, home/work address, and black book.
(2) There are Holy Angels sitting outside on your roof and hanging around you all the day long!
(3) The LORD GOD allows you to full range over your life – that’s free will!
(4) Whether you live in Paris, China, Ethiopia, Israel, Japan, Holland, Australia, America, Russia (you get the point) – you are alive and all souls (dead or alive) belong to GOD!
(5) Furthermore, the Earth belongs to GOD. Not only does the Earth belong to GOD, the Heavens, the Galaxies, the Universe, and the Universe Beyond belong to GOD!
(6) Back to the EARTH, if the cows on the hill (according to the BIBLE) belong to GOD, then the bulls belong to GOD. If the animals belong to GOD, then, the ants, spiders (and all the creeping thangs belong to GOD). If the WATER belongs to GOD, then the fish, frogs, and everything in the ponds, rivers, swimming pools, healing spas, seas, oceans, and under ground rivers/springs belong to GOD! If the AIR belongs to GOD, then the birds, flying insects, and particles belong to GOD! Pray tell me what does not belong to GOD?
If we know all of this, why do we sin against HIM?
Have a Blessed Day!
