A plea to one, noble and bright ... from Hosea
Contextually, from Hosea to Israel regarding her moral waywardness and the breach of her convenantal relationship with the Lord. Applicaton to a single person, as above, my own.
In wickedness, you plow and reap
The fruits, of dark iniquity
His holy word, you fail to keep
But trust your errant, willful way
Oh, stubborn, long divided heart
Your altars, will be overturned
He'll smite and wound, and tear apart
And judge the soul, who grace hath spurned
Seek ye the LORD, with holy fear
And He will send the promised rain
Of righteousness, and will draw near
To bind and heal, your life again
Recent meanderings took me on a journey from Revelation to Daniel and on through Hosea. So many wonderful images and awesome thoughts. The word of God is amazing! As I came to the end of Revelation, I realised that there are strong parallels between chapter 20 and a recently read passage in Isaiah that is very dear to my heart. The same thought continues on through Hosea. I really must buy a bible with a margin, but in some ways, when you stumble upon things like this, it is pretty neat! I gleaned from my journey through Revelation, Job and now Hosea, that wisdom and the fear of the LORD are inextricably linked. How good is the God we adore! What a treasure we have in his Word.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
