A survey to understand the warning contained in Hosea's prophesy: "...they have got sown the wind and they shall harvest the whirlwind", as it may use to us as well as those Israelites.
Under the compact Supreme Being made with the Hebrews through Moses, they were promised great things and a really fantastic life. Under His ticker attention they were to give themselves to life for Him and observing His commandments. His choosing them for His people to supply the line of descent to Jesus Of Nazareth the christ included those things. People often neglect to acknowledge the fact that much of that written law was physical. Actual regulations for them to obey and physical wages for them to bask a fantastic life. A few of the things He promised them were, the full land of Palestine West of the Jordan River river...a land "flowing with milk and honey". He promised that their enemies would be subdued by them. Their lands would supply them with bountiful harvests. He would even direct hornets onto the Hivites, Hittites and Canaanites, to drive them from the land small by little. All of this if, they would obey Him.
These wages were for observation of His laws. Those laws could not remit sins. Only Jesus Of Nazareth decease on the cross could make that. But their religion and obeisance would enable them to be cleaned from their sinfulnesses at the clip of Jesus Of Nazareth death. Much of the Hagiographa of the Prophets in the Old Testaments are God's attempts to maintain them on the right way and warning them of the effects of failing to follow Him exclusively. But usually they failed to make so. God's warning through Hosea come ups following a full account of the things they had done.
"Set the cornet to thy mouth. He shall come up as an bird of Jove against the house of the LORD, because they have got transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law. State Of Israel shall shout unto me, My God, we cognize thee. State Of Israel hath cast of characters off the thing that is good: the enemy shall prosecute him. They have got got got put up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their Ag and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off. Thy calf, Type O Samaria, hath cast of characters thee off; mine choler is kindled against them: how long volition it be ere they achieve to innocency? For from State Of Israel was it also: the working man made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces. For they have got sown the wind, and they shall harvest the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall give no meal: if so be it yield, the aliens shall get down it up". (Hosea 8:1-7)
It is this author's sentiment that the United States, is a land truly flowing with milk and honey. Our enemies (in the past) have got been defeated before us. Our land have got been exceedingly comfortable and we have lived sumptuously for well over 200 old age under His argus-eyed eye. In the last one-half century we have got worshipped a aureate calf. We have got essentially deserted Supreme Being and His Son. We have got allowed false claims by imposter men of science to take us into accepting their uncorroborated thoughts which take the full conception of Supreme Being from our minds. Giving glorification to these falsities rather than Supreme Being Godhead and His Son.
It is true that we are under the perfect Law of Jesus at this time, without the warnings of what may come up literally and physically in this life. However we have got the same duty to function Supreme Being in item as did the Hebrews under the Old Testament law. Only our wages is not lands, good crops and physical protections or wealth. Our reward, if we conk not, is ageless life in glorification with the Father and Jesus Of Nazareth plus the pick of all societies, those who faithfully served him. Our penalty is not that we will be overproduction by our enemies and killed by the sword, but our ageless penalty for noncompliance will be a 2nd death, a separation from God. Project into outer darkness to dwell forever in overpowering mental stress. It have been proven clip and again by subjecting a captive to eremitic parturiency for even a short time period may convey on adequate emphasis to make lasting mental damage. And such as captives have got their minutes of seeing or speech production to security force for meals, other needs, etc., which gives at least a small interruption from the monotony.
This prognostication was God's word given through Hosea to a fallen state who had been apostatized for respective coevals Things were a mess. Morality was at stone bottom. Murder, stealing, adultery, deceit, inebriation and dishonesty in business, small or no religion in Supreme Being still existed. And the political state of affairs was just as rotten. Almost no male monarch ascended the throne through heritage or legal agency but rather by military unit or murdering the sitting king. And Supreme Being had given Hosea the job of disclosing His displeasure to them and to state them of their destiny. This is what the significance of, "They have got sown the wind and they shall harvest the whirlwind."
God have gone to the utmost to allow His children chance to obey Him of their ain free will, but he have always given up on them when they went too far. His verbal description of what was coming to the Hebrews above was irreversible. They had deserted Him and there was no longer a turning back opportunity. The full Book is full with the illustrations of His people straying from Him, usually within quite short clip periods of time. I personally believe that the initiation of this new land in United States was by God's Godhead Providence and that He was offering His children a concluding chance to distribute the boundary lines of His kingdom, the church. And rather than faithfully doing that, I believe that we have got got "sown the wind", and have again deep-set into apostasy. Nothing shows our faithfulness, or deficiency of, to Supreme Being more than a presidential election. Again, I hold that we are no longer under that Old law that punished it's subjects with physical earthly disasters. However, it is something to see when you read a Bible such as as Israelites 2:1-3:
"Therefore we ought to give the more than earnest attentiveness to the things which we have got heard, lest at any clip we should allow them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every evildoing and noncompliance received a just recompence of reward; How shall we escape, if we disregard so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him."
Our supplications should always include the beseeching Supreme Being for strong and Godly leadership of this great state and then we should seek them out and ballot for them.
