    NAME: Hosea means Jehovah is salvation

    MESSAGE: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (4:6).


    Hosea was the last to prophesy before the northern kingdom fell to Assyria (about 722 B .C.).When he began his ministry the northern kingdom was experiencing a peace and prosperity notexperienced since the days of Solomon. This prosperity led Israel to moral decay. They turnedfrom God to worship idols. God instructed Hosea to marry a wife of whoredom. Herunfaithfulness would serve as a living illustration of Israels apostasy and Gods love for thisunfaithful nation. Hosea then gives Gods complaint against Israel and warns that punishmentwould come if they did not return to God and be faithful to h im. Hosea shows the deep love Godhas for his people and that he would not tolerate idolatry.

    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, Ireject you from being a priest to me.

    I will punish them for their ways and r epay them for their deeds.Wha t sha ll I do with you, O Ephra im? Wha t shall I do with you, O Juda h? Your love is

    like a morning cloud, like the dew that goes early away.For I desire steadfast love and not sacri fice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt

    offerings.For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whir lwind.

    Samaria s king shall peri sh like a twig on the face of the waters.Sow for yourselves r ighteousness; reap steadfast love; br eak up your fa llow ground,

    for it is the time to seek the LORD that he may come and rain r ighteousness upon you.When I sra el was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.Ephraim feeds on the wind and pursues the east wind a ll day long; they multiply

    falsehood and violence; they make a co venant with Assyria, and oil is car ried to Egypt.
