The Prophet Hosea, Part 3

The book of Hosea is a sad story of Israel’s failures in faithfulness to God. The people were guilty of many sins that drew God’s wrath. Worst of all was their spiritual adultery against the Lord, as they worshiped false gods instead of Him. Today’s show, part 3 of our 4-part series on Hosea, explores the cycles of judgment the Israelites endured for their crimes.

Israel’s continued disobedience ultimately brought judgment in the form of dispersion. The people were killed; driven from the land; or subjugated to the rule of their conquerors, the Assyrians. And Assyrian punishment was not for the faint of heart. Their grueling physical and psychological torture highlighted one of the darkest chapters in Israel’s history. But there is still hope to come! Take this week’s study of judgment to heart to fully enjoy God’s rich grace and mercy!

  1. Any chance of getting a transcript for Hosea Part 3? I use these transcripts for further study after listening to the broadcasts.

      1. Thank you!!!

        My wife and I download and listen to the broadcasts together. Almost every week there are things I want to study more closely, or perhaps Bible passages I want read in different translations. Having a transcript makes these further studies much easier.
