The Prophet Hosea, Part 2

We are sinful people. When we sin, we deserve punishment. And when Israel sinned in the times of the prophet Hosea, the nation faced divine punishment. God used Hosea to identify major sins, including injustice, hypocrisy, and violence, that had entrapped the Israelites. They took pride in themselves instead of thanking God for His provision.

Worst of all, Israel was unfaithful to God, choosing to worship false gods instead. So God used Hosea to issue a poignant lesson to His people. He instructed Hosea to marry Gomer, a prostitute. The names Hosea gave his children with Gomer indicated God’s anger and impending judgment on the unfaithful Israelites. What did God intend to tell the nation through Hosea’s family? Tune in to part 2 of our 4-part series on this prophetic book for the answer!
