Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed My covenant, and trespassed against My law. Israel shall cry unto Me, ‘My God, we know Thee.’ Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him. They have set up kings, but not by Me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.” Hosea 8:1-4 (KJV)
Hosea is speaking to the people who claim to be God’s children. Those who claim to know God, “My God, we know Thee.” Yet, they do not keep His law. They do not heed His word.
The LORD counts it a vile, wicked and unruly thing for those who claim to know Him, and do not obey His law, nor keep His Word. There is judgment for those who claim to be God’s people, yet live as the people of the earth.
GOD is full of mercy and grace which is found and received only through the death, burial and bodily resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. Hear Him. Believe Him. Be saved today.
