Countless times I have heard “I don’t worship this!” as they point to the jewelry hanging on their neck. Hosea 13:2 “And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.” A good indicator that they do worship it, is the practice of kissing their false god. It doesn’t matter if its a calf, cross, star, or amulet; in times of success or despair they kiss it to show adoration. 1st Kings 19:18 “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.”
When the Heavenly Father is not your God, then the earthly leadership will be sinful and untrustworthy. Hosea 13:9 “O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.” Verse 10: “I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?” The lack of true men is the reason we could not find justice in all our dwellings. Even within those that claim to be close to God. See, Luke 16:15. Whether we seek the judges to indict a murderer (with a badge or not) of an innocent man.
It will not be possible for any man to save you from your troubles. Especially when the nativity of a nation is rooted in the crime that you seek justice for. Hosea 13:16 “Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.” Sounds like ruthless abortion to me!
The Egyptians did not know the most High. Exodus 5:2 “And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.” We were introduced to the most High while in Egypt by Moses; whom was called by him in the land of Midian. He proved to Israel that there was no other god and that by his might he will save us. Hosea 13:4 “Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.” The Pharaoh of today, in this spiritual Egypt mimics the truth because he does not want to let Israel go.
Remember Israel, there is only one way you could be saved from Death. Hosea 13:14 “I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.” Repent from your ways and return before the day of destruction comes, when it will be too late to repent.
