The Court is Now in Session!
Hosea 7-8
Skip Heitzig

Jump To: Prayer | Worship | Interactive | Message

Hosea 7 (NKJV™)
1 "When I would have healed Israel, Then the iniquity of Ephraim was uncovered, And the wickedness of Samaria. For they have committed fraud; A thief comes in; A band of robbers takes spoil outside.
2 They do not consider in their hearts That I remember all their wickedness; Now their own deeds have surrounded them; They are before My face.
3 They make a king glad with their wickedness, And princes with their lies.
4 "They are all adulterers. Like an oven heated by a baker--He ceases stirring the fire after kneading the dough, Until it is leavened.
5 In the day of our king Princes have made him sick, inflamed with wine; He stretched out his hand with scoffers.
6 They prepare their heart like an oven, While they lie in wait; Their baker sleeps all night; In the morning it burns like a flaming fire.
7 They are all hot, like an oven, And have devoured their judges; All their kings have fallen. None among them calls upon Me.
8 "Ephraim has mixed himself among the peoples; Ephraim is a cake unturned.
9 Aliens have devoured his strength, But he does not know it; Yes, gray hairs are here and there on him, Yet he does not know it.
10 And the pride of Israel testifies to his face, But they do not return to the LORD their God, Nor seek Him for all this.
11 "Ephraim also is like a silly dove, without sense--They call to Egypt, They go to Assyria.
12 Wherever they go, I will spread My net on them; I will bring them down like birds of the air; I will chastise them According to what their congregation has heard.
13 "Woe to them, for they have fled from Me! Destruction to them, Because they have transgressed against Me! Though I redeemed them, Yet they have spoken lies against Me.
14 They did not cry out to Me with their heart When they wailed upon their beds. "They assemble together for grain and new wine, They rebel against Me;
15 Though I disciplined and strengthened their arms, Yet they devise evil against Me;
16 They return, but not to the Most High; They are like a treacherous bow. Their princes shall fall by the sword For the cursings of their tongue. This shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.
Hosea 8 (NKJV™)
1 "Set the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the LORD, Because they have transgressed My covenant And rebelled against My law.
2 Israel will cry to Me, 'My God, we know You!'
3 Israel has rejected the good; The enemy will pursue him.
4 "They set up kings, but not by Me; They made princes, but I did not acknowledge them. From their silver and gold They made idols for themselves--That they might be cut off.
5 Your calf is rejected, O Samaria! My anger is aroused against them--How long until they attain to innocence?
6 For from Israel is even this: A workman made it, and it is not God; But the calf of Samaria shall be broken to pieces.
7 "They sow the wind, And reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no bud; It shall never produce meal. If it should produce, Aliens would swallow it up.
8 Israel is swallowed up; Now they are among the Gentiles Like a vessel in which is no pleasure.
9 For they have gone up to Assyria, Like a wild donkey alone by itself; Ephraim has hired lovers.
10 Yes, though they have hired among the nations, Now I will gather them; And they shall sorrow a little, Because of the burden of the king of princes.
11 "Because Ephraim has made many altars for sin, They have become for him altars for sinning.
12 I have written for him the great things of My law, But they were considered a strange thing.
13 For the sacrifices of My offerings they sacrifice flesh and eat it, But the LORD does not accept them. Now He will remember their iniquity and punish their sins. They shall return to Egypt.
14 "For Israel has forgotten his Maker, And has built temples; Judah also has multiplied fortified cities; But I will send fire upon his cities, And it shall devour his palaces."

Minor Prophets in the Major Leagues

Why do we call Jonah, Amos, Obadiah, Malachi and the others the "minor" prophets? It certainly isn't because their messages were less important! Prophets are like people holding a wire from heaven and wire to the earth, with God speaking through them. At times, God used these unique men to proclaim His truth, or to denounce men's sin, or to predict the future, both near and far-off. Other times, He used them to show His truth by demonstration, through events in their lives. In this in-depth series, Pastor Skip Heitzig presents important truths about these little books with big messages.

A Pageant of Rejected Love
Hosea 1:1-2:1
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
All of us have a need to see and understand God. But what does it take for God to get your attention? The book of Hosea speaks of God using the marriage of Hosea and his wife Gomer to depict a demonstration of events to come and cause them to recognize the degradated state the house of Israel was in. God will use/allow any means to get our attention to turn to Him but do we really want that extreme? I hope not, but if that is what it takes then God, because He loves us, will allow just that. If you find many hardships, disappointment and tough times, stop, think and turn to God for He has the answers you seek.

A Pageant of Recovered Love
Hosea 2-3
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Are you running from circumstances that appear hopeless? Are you feeling the tugging on you heart that you can't quite understand? Well these all may be the prompting of the Holy Spirit of God to get your attention. Hosea and Gomer had a marriage that was difficult and full of impossible issues but God had a purpose for it all. Their marriage was a picture to the people of Israel of how we should not treat God. Gomer had freewill and made a bad choices but Hosea stayed faithful in the midst of it all…, why? Because Hosea listened to the grace of God and was sustained. You may be going through difficult times, circumstances of hardships, but if you listen to the prompting of God you will be sustained, but if you reject His promptings you could suffer and take the wrong paths. God will demonstrate His love to you in every way but it's up to you to recognize it and choose whom you will serve, God or man.
