Hosea 8:1-4 “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.
I have been thinking about American the last few days. We were a nation founded on the Word of God, we were founded on the belief in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Somewhere along the road we lost our fear of the LORD! Somehow we decided we could claim to believe in the LORD but act like we don’t. Think about this America. God does not share His throne with anyone. We have set up idols in the place of God. We have allowed other gods to come into the house of America. We are allowing the ungodly to make our laws and they are driving America down the path of destruction.
I was reading my bible this moring when I came across this passage in Hosea. It made me stop and think, what are the consequences of apostacy? What are the consquences of mixing belief with unbelief? What are the consequences of allowing the ungodly to rule in our court rooms and in our government?
We claim to believe in God, but we make that claim less and less. We want to claim the promises of God, but we don’t want to obey His Word. We have mixed belief in with unbelief and we believe we will be fine. We are a nation in deception.
While reading this passage in Hosea I found the following commentary: “When a nation conduts its government in the spirit of pratical atheism, without acknowledging God’s presence and supreme control in human affairs, or seeking to conform its actions to his will, it can have neither stability nor true prosperity. One violent change will follow another, until it is cut off in its iniquity.”
I employ you American, awake from you sumber! Open your eyes to the deception all around you! Set yourself apart from the ways of evil! Learn to sanctify yourself, put on the garmet of righteousness that can only be found in Jesus Christ! Let’s stop trying to mix belief with unbelief. The bible says in Isaiah 44:6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God.”
