Chapters 7 to 14

                              HOSEA FOR TODAY

                               Chapters 7-14


CHAPTER 7

The Corruptions and Wickedness of Israel

     It is over and over that God lays down the sins of Israel.
He makes every effort to warn them, tells them to REPENT so they
will not have to go into captivity. 
     But they consider not in their heart to remember their
iniquities. It would seem the rulers of Israel just will NOT
listen, so their doings are before the face of the Lord. They are
like an oven prepared for the baking; they are hot to sin as an
oven is to bake. Your judges and leaders are devoured and have
fallen. They just do not know how to lead you back onto the right
and correct pathway of righteousness. Ephraim Britain is a burnt
cake, just rotten and hard as brick to see its wickedness.
Outsiders have devoured your once mighty strength of character.
They are so proud they cannot find their way back to their God
(verses 1-10).

     My father at age 85 went back to Britain in 2005 with the
desire to live the rest of his life back in the small village we
came from in south Wales. He was there for one year. He told me
on the phone he could not stay there in Britain because of their
evil and wickedness and corruption from the top of the head down
to the foot. He returned to Canada.

     Ephraim Britain is like a silly dove God says, she goes to
Egypt and the Assyrian (Germany Europe and the Middle East) for
help. God says that he will spread His net upon them; He will
bring them down as the fowls of heaven; He will correct them just
as they have been told. Woe unto you Britain for you have fled
from your God. Destruction will come on you because you have
transgressed against the Lord. He has blessed you but you have
now spoken lies and live in lies. You have NOT cried out to your
Maker and God. Even when in deep trouble you did not cry out to
Him, but went to Germany Europe to try and help your problems and
find prosperity. Oh you turn all right, you move, you change, but
NOT in God's direction. You will again be in captivity as in the
land of Egypt (verses 11-16).


CHAPTER 8

     The TRUMPET is to blow! The Lord shall come as an eagle to
the prey, FOR you have transgressed the covenant of living with
God and have transgressed His LAW. The time will come when you
will cry "My God, we know you, help us!" But it will be too late.
You people of Israel have rejected what is the right and good way
and so the enemy will come to destroy you (verses 1-3).

     
     You set up kings, but NOT by me; you have made princes, and
God had no part in it. God is NOT IN YOUR POLITICS! Your rulers
are not sent from God (verse 4). 

     Many of you thought George Bush was the "man from God" for
the leading of the United States 8 year ago (2000 to 2008). But
what a MESS the USA is in today as I write this just before
another President comes into power. President Bush boy has gone
down in history as the most un-popular President since Richard
Nixon, and Richard Nixon did not lead the USA into any where near
the mess the USA is in today.

     Your silver and gold has led you to idolatry. Your banking
guys have led you to another 1939 CRASH! Now the average tax
payer has to bail out Wall Street to the tune of about 1 TRILLION
dollars, in this month of September 2008 (verse 4).

     You have SOWN THE WIND AND YOU WILL REAP THE WHIRL-WIND!!

     Israel is swallowed up; you will finally be a junky, a
vessel worthless around the Gentiles. For you hope in Assyria
Germany Europe - Ephraim Britain has hired LOVERS. You will
writhe under the burden of the great king of the North, the
Europe Roman Empire of the last days.

     Ephraim, Britain and family, you have made altars to sin,
you are the sick nation of the Europe Union. So God will leave
you to your sins. He has written and given you the great things
of His law, that you once loved, but NOW you count them as a
"strange thing" - those teaching of the good and right ways of
the Lord are laughed at, ignored, counted as the enemy of freedom
and choice. Here in Canada if you call same sex marriage an EVIL
and SIN, you are cast as a BIGOT and an enemy of "love" and
"social respect" for all peoples whatever they believe or want to
practice. 
     God will remember your sins and you will one day return to
the slavery of Egypt as in the beginning, when you were delivered
under Moses and given the law of God.

     ISRAEL, you have FORGOTTEN your Maker; you build temples of
one religion or another in your lands. JUDAH, you build and
multiply your fenced and protected cities; BUT God will send a
FIRE UPON your cities and you will be devoured! (verses 7-14).
     We have seen in other prophecies how Judah is full of sins
and corruptions. This September 2008 the leader of the state of
Israel has had to resign because of deep corruption in his life,
and the new woman leader they say will have a very difficult time
to form even a coalition government. Corruption and violence is
still a major part of life in Jerusalem and Judah. 


CHAPTER 9

"REJOICE NOT, O Israel, for joy, as other people; for you have
gone a whoring from your God..."  The riches of Israel will no
longer save you. Ephraim Britain will return to the slavery days
of Egypt, and shall eat unclean things in Germany Assyria. Your
days of visitation and punishment are coming. Israel, you will
know that your prophets are FOOLS, and the spiritual man is MAD,
YOU WILL COME TO KNOW YOUR INIQUITIES AND THE GREAT HATRED YOU
HAVE BEEN TAUGHT AGAINST THE LORD AND HIS TRUE WAYS. You and they
(your prophets and spiritual men) have DEEPLY CORRUPTED
yourselves, so God will remember your iniquities and He will
visit you with correction for your sins.

     As for Ephraim Britain, your GLORY will fly away like a
bird, it already has, your days of glory are over.

     Though you will bring up children, you will loose them, it
is woe to you when God finally departs from you. Though Britain
you are planted in a very pleasant place (the British Isles are
like the garden of Eden in so many ways), you will bring up your
children for the MURDERER! God will one day finally take His love
from you, you will in effect be driven out of His house, for a
while He will love you no more; all your princely leaders are
REVOLTERS against the Lord.
     It is decreed that Ephraim will be mitten, their root to dry
up, bearing no fruit. Yes, though they bring forth children the
Lord will SLAY even the fruit of the womb.
     Hosea shouts, "My God will CAST THEM AWAY, BECAUSE THEY DID
NOT HARKEN UNTO HIM, AND THEY SHALL WANDER AMONG THE NATIONS"
(verses 11-17).


CHAPTER 10

     Israel will be an empty vine, as they increased with fruit
they increased their altars to false worship and sin. The
goodness of their lands made them more images of sin and
corruption. God will come and punish. Israel will one day say,
"We have no king, because we feared not the Lord." It is the
mighty Assyrian nation -the GERMAN people who will spear-head a
mighty Europe Beast Babylon power that will carry you away into
captivity. The punishment will put an end to your gross sins,
your false altars will be covered with thistles, and you will
desire the mountains to cover you, for the hills to fall on you,
for so great will be your pain and suffering (verses 1-8).

     It is the Lord's will to punish you, to chastise you, the
people He will use will be gathered against you.
     It will be the time to sow righteousness, to reap for mercy,
a time to REALLY SEEK the Lord, till He arrives to rain
righteousness on you.
     You have plowed wickedness, you have reaped iniquity; you
have eaten the fruit of lies in your way of life: BECAUSE you did
trust in YOUR OWN ways, and in the multitude of your so-called
mighty leaders of government, economics, military, and
spirituality.
     It will be a mighty TUMULT among you in the day of your
correction, and none of your mighty fortresses of economics
and/or war machines will save you; they will be for the spoiler
(9-15).


CHAPTER 11

     God called you out of Egypt as a son, but as you went you
turned to false idols. God taught Ephraim to go in the right way,
but many times they did not acknowledge the Lord was their
healer. He drew them with bands of love. Now God has decided
because you are like your forefathers, not to send you back into
Egypt, but the Assyrian German will be your master and king. The
sword of his army shall abide on your cities.  
     God says you are BENT on backsliding into sin: though you
have at times an outward face of calling to the Most High (when
something like a massive natural disaster strikes you, or the
enemy blows up some of your mighty buildings as the infamous 9 11
of 2001) you really do not EXALT Him in deep and humble
contrition that leads to turning from sin to holy righteousness
(verses 1-7).

"HOW CAN I GIVE YOU UP, EPHRAIM? HOW SHALL I DELIVER YOU, ISRAEL?
.... I WILL NOT EXECUTE THE FIERCENESS OF MINE ANGER, I WILL NOT
RETURN TO DESTROY YOU COMPLETELY EPHRAIM: FOR I AM GOD, NOT MAN;
THE HOLY ONE IN THE MIDST OF YOU. I WILL YET BE IN YOUR CITIES.
YOU WILL YET WALK AFTER THE LORD: HE WILL ROAR LIKE A LION: WHEN
HE DOES THE CHILDREN IN THE WEST WILL TREMBLE. THEY WILL TREMBLE
AS A BIRD OUT OF EGYPT, AND AS A DOVE OUT OF THE LAND OF ASSYRIA:
I WILL PLACE THEM IN THEIR HOUSES, SAYS THE LORD" (verses 8-11).

     God, in His chastising, will not fully and completely
destroy you Oh Israel. He will chastise enough for you to come to
your knees in humble REPENTANCE. In your affliction you will turn
back to serve God in spirit as well as in truth. He then will
deliver you from the lands of your enemies at the coming of the
Messiah Christ, and He will place you in your houses in the Holy
Land and in Jerusalem, as all the prophets proclaim and teach
(verse 11).
     

CHAPTER 12

     Ephraim Britain feeds on the "east" wind, the east wind
travels "west" - from Europe. Britain has looked to the EAST for
help! She has made a covenant with Germany/Assyria and she will
continue to do so. She has sided with the king of the North and
some kind of deal will be made with the king of the North and the
coming king of the South with Egypt at its head. It could well
have something to do with "oil" but the deal will hit a dead end
and the king of the South will "push at" (somehow) the king of
the North and the king of the North will come against the South
and win the battle. We have covered that prophecy in Daniel
11:40-45.

     The Lord has also a controversy with Judah. All of Jacob
Israel will be punished according to their ways (verses 1-2)

     A little history is reviewed (verses 3-5).

     There has been deceit and oppression used by Ephraim to
acquire her riches, and she has thought herself righteous with no
sin, in so doing. Not all that Britain did in building its Empire
was the smell of roses.

     God has used the prophets many many times to warn Ephraim
and Israel. A little more Jacob history is retold, as well as
reminding them that it was through a prophet - Moses - that God
brought Israel out of Egypt. It has been the nature of Ephraim
and Israel to provoke the Lord in sinning, so they will have
payment for their wickedness (verses 8-14).

     What we sow that we eventually will reap. If we sow sin and
iniquity then death is the final payment. It is a universal law,
all great nations of the past that sank into more and more sin,
finally ended in destruction. The classic example is the Roman
Empire. The famous work "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" by
Gibbon, makes that universal law a clear reality. Gibbon gives I
believe 5 basic sins that led Rome to its doom, not the least of
them was that the Roman society corrupted itself from WITHIN -
sin upon sin - blood upon blood - until the wickedness like a
cancer rotted the Empire, and then it was no match for the enemy
to swoop down and bring Rome and its Empire crashing to the
ground. 
     So it will be for Ephraim and all Israel - it is only a
matter of WHEN! And that "when" belongs to the Lord in His time.


CHAPTER 13

     When Ephraim Britain spoke with the humble fear of God in
the nations like in the days of the Second World War under
Winston Churchill, they were exalted in Israel, but when they
have now offended in secularism and pagan Baal practices, Britain
has signed the death sentence. But they sin the more and then
more, and have set up many idols in their heart and mind. They
will be as the morning cloud and the dew that passes away, as the
chaff driven by the whirlwind, and as the smoke out of the
chimney is blown away.

     At the same time God says, "Yet I am the Lord thy God from
the land of Egypt; and you shall know no god but Me, for I am
your true Savior, there is no Savior besides me" (verses 1-4).

     It is as it ever was, once you are filled and prosperous,
your heart was exalted in your own eyes; therefore you have
forsaken your God. And because it is so, God will be to you as a
lion: as a leopard stalking its prey. God will meet you as a bear
bereaved of her cubs; He will devour you like a lion; the wild
beasts shall tear you (verses 6-8).
     
     Listen Israel to the voice of your God, "O Israel, you have
destroyed yourself; BUT IN ME is your help" (verse 9).

     It is the Lord God who WILL be your KING. There is no other
who can save what will be left of you from your cities. God is
binding up your sins, He is not forgetting them. You will cry and
wail as a woman giving child-birth. YET, the power of the Lord
will rescue many from the grave; you will be redeemed from death
(we've seen that in Ezekiel 37).

"O death, I will be thy plague; O grave, I will be thy
destruction: changing my mind does not even enter my mind on this
promise" (14).

     Though Ephraim Britain is fruitful among his brethren, and
EAST wind with come, it is coming from the Lord. The east wind
from the Europe Babylon/Assyria, will come Westward and famine
and desert like conditions the Europe east wind will bring, all
the goodness shall dry up (verses 15).

     Samaria Israel shall BECOME DESOLATE; for she has REBELLED
AGAINST GOD; THEY SHALL FALL BY THE WORD;   
     
     Samaria shall become desolate because they have rebelled
against God; they shall fall by the sword; their infants shall be
dashed in pieces; and their women will child shall be ripped up
(verses 16).

     There have been some horrid - terrible - violent things done
in the name of WAR! So sadly it will be again for Israel Samaria,
by the mighty hand of the end time European Babylon Beast.


CHAPTER 14

Healing for the Repentant

"RETURN, O Israel, to the Lord your God, for your sins have
brought you down. Bring your petitions, and return to the Lord,
say to Him, 'Forgive all our sins and graciously receive us, so
that we may offer you the sacrifice of praise. Assyria (Germany)
cannot save us, nor can our strength in battle. Never again will
we call the idols we have made [our gods]. No, in YOU alone do
the orphans find mercy" (verses 1-3.

     This September 2008 we have witnessed the greed and
corruption of the elite Wall Street banker investors CRASH to the
basement - their careless sins, while they roll in physical
riches (tens of millions of dollars in each of their pockets)
have been exposed in bankruptsy. The madness of poor government
and the sickening fact that it may be the average tax payer who
is to try and bail out the Wall Street debacle, to the tune of
700 BILLION DOLLARS and possibly ONE TRILLION DOLLARS, is white
collar crime and iniquity that has until now been rampant in the
United States of Samaria. Our sins WILL BRING US DOWN, AND NO
NATION WILL STOP OUR FALL. Our lovers (that one day will be our
nightmare enemies) that we have helped and loved, nations like
Germany, in Europe, will not be able to save us, they will not
desire to save us, nay God will even use them to punish us. But
if we will then REPENT and cry out to God, admitting our sins and
that none but He can save us, then the Lord says, "I will heal
you of your idolatry and faithlessness, and my love will know no
bounds, for my anger will be gone forever. I will be to Israel
like a refreshing dew from heaven. It will blossom like the lily;
it will send roots deep into the soil like the cedars in Lebanon.
Its branches will spread out like those of beautiful olive trees,
as fragrant as the cedar forests of Lebanon. My people will
return again to the safety of their land. They will flourish like
grain and blossom like grapevines. They will be as fragrant as
the wines of Lebanon" (verses 4-7).

     This prophecy will come to pass but it is a prophecy for the
time beyond us; the time of the new age to come, when Israel and
Judah will have been punished in captivity and restored to the
Holy Land, where new righteous blossoming will begin, when Israel
will at last be the inspired Spirit filled children of God, and
will set the righteous example for all the nations of the earth
to want to emulate. That is why God chose the people of Israel in
the first place (Det.4). We have a few times in out long 3,000
plus years of history, been the right holy example, like under
the reign of king Solomon and a few others. Yet the time when
Israel will be the holy righteous example for ever, while
physical flesh in on this earth, will have to wait for the age
that is yet to come.

     In the prophecy of Hosea God wants Israel to NOT have to be
punished with destruction and captivity, so He gives a final cry:

"O Israel Ephraim, come out of idolatry! I am the one who looks
after you and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always
green, giving my fruit to you all through the year" (verse 8).

     If you would LISTEN. If you would TURN from SIN and
iniquity, the Israel, you would not have to go through this great
affliction like no other in history. God would be willing to then
work His plan on earth and into the new age, a DIFFERENT way!
Yes, He would! He has told you through the prophet Ezekiel that
He has NO PLEASURE in the death of the wicked, but if the wicked
acknowledge their wickedness and turn from it to righteousness,
then God will turn from the evil He thought to do to them - the
righteous would then LIVE in their righteousness.

"Let those who are WISE understand these things. Let those who
are DISCERNING listen carefully. The PATHS of the Lord are TRUE
and RIGHT, and RIGHTEOUS people live by WALKING in them. But
sinners STUMBLE and FALL along the way!" (verse 9).

     ARE YOU ONE OF THE WISE? YOU CAN BE! IT IS WRITTEN THE FEAR
OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM. IF YOU WILL FEAR IN DEEP
HUMBLE RESPECT FOR THE PATHS OF THE LORD, IF YOU WILL HUNGER AND
THIRST AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS, IF YOU WILL PROVE ALL THINGS AND HOLD
FAST TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD, IF YOU WILL SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES TO
PROVE WHAT IS SPOKEN ON THIS WEBSITE IS THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF
THE LORD, THEN YOU WILL BE FILLED WITH UNDERSTANDING.

     THE PROPHECY OF HOSEA WAS NOT JUST FOR HIS DAY, NOT JUST FOR
ISRAEL OF OLD, BUT IT IS ALSO A PROPHECY FOR MODERN ISRAEL.

"Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those who
are discerning listen carefully."
