REDEEMED, BUT STILL DECEIVED
Summary of Hosea 10. Israel is an empty vine and their heart is divided. They shall be found faulty and judgment shall come. The sins of Israel shall be destroyed. Sow in righteousness and reap in mercy. You have plowed in wickedness and have reaped iniquity. All your fortresses shall be destroyed because of your great wickedness.
Hosea 10:12. Another definition of revival is that it is a time of repentance and reuniting with God.
Hosea 12:10. To determine what is true prophecy and what is false prophecy, you need to determine if the prophecy came from God. No one but God can declare truthfully what will happen in the future. He is the only one that can be exactly certain about a future event. Someone can only prophesy if they have heard the prophecy directly from God.
Hosea 5:15. Whether we know it or not, we are suppose to be in a loving relationship with God. When we are not, we have broken our relationship with Him. Our disobedience to God, our creator, is a sin. Sin started with Adam, our forefather, and continues with us today. Jesus is the answer for us to restore our relationship with God, but first we must confess our sins.
Hosea 8:7. If you do not put your resources to work as God’s good stewards, you will reap the whirlwind. If you are always chasing after “free stuff” (gambling, lottery, scams, stealing, always borrowing, and so on), you are sowing into the wind. If you sow into the wind, you will get what you give. You will reap a whirlwind.
Hosea 10:13. You can define delusions from a Christian perspective in that we trust ourselves more than our Creator and His Word, the Bible. How can we say we know better than God what we should do in our lives and not be delusional?
Hosea 7:13. When we define deceit another aspect is it suppresses the truth. In Christianity deceit results in people not even knowing they need salvation nor knowing that they need redemption through Jesus Christ. Through deceit we either do not know God or we have a corrupt view of God.
