Hosea 1:1-5. The word of the LORD that came unto Hosea, the son Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea, And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD. So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived and bare him a son. And the LORD said unto him, Call his name Jezreel (God will sow); for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel. And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.
The destruction of Israel was prophesied by Jeremiah, Amos, Micah, and Hosea. Through similitude God is showing the destruction of Israel to the point that they would never be a nation again, that only a remnant would be saved, and that in Jesus Christ.
The word of God consistently has one of two ‘functions’;
1. It will bring destruction to those that reject or resist the word of God, with all the curses that are written in the book (Deut.28:15-68; Deut.30 1-20; Psalm 37:22), and
2. It will bring life to those that find it, with blessings (Deut. 28:1-14; Proverbs 4:20-23; Psalm 103:1-5).
Israel refused to listen to God’s prophets (11Kings 17:1-23) and were completely scattered by the Assyrians and placed in other cities of the Assyrian empire so that no Israelites were left in the cities of Samaria (11Kings 17:23) and Shalmanesar, king of Assyria, settled all the cities of Samaria with the inhabitants of the heathen nations that Assyria ruled (11Kings 17:24; 18:9-12).
The heathens had a problem with lions attacking the people so they sent to King Shalmanesar for help. He brought back from the dispersed Israelites a priest to teach the heathen how to fear God. So now the heathen feared God but still served their own gods as they did before in their own nations (11Kings 17:25-330. Is not that just like Christians today? With their mouth they ‘serve the Lord’ but their hearts are engaged with religious and social idolatries of the gods of their own making.
The reason for God’s final rebuke of Israel was that they would not obey God but rather became like all the nations around them who replaced them in their own houses and on their lands (Deut. 28:63-68). The people of Samaria when Jesus came were, by and large, descendants of those who replaced Israel.
Back to Hosea
1.When Jesus came he came to Jerusalem and the house of Judah.
Hosea 1:7. But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen (ie: not by the hand of man).This is a direct reference of the coming of Jesus Christ (the LORD their God) about 2000 years ago.When Jesus came the multitude thought he was the Messiah that came to deliver them from the tyranny of Rome by force (John 6:15). In fact he came as the Messiah, not to deliver people from a manmade empire of oppression, but to deliver as many as would believe in him from the tyranny and oppression of Satan and his kingdom from which there is no other escape (Matt. 1:21; Luke 4:18-21; Isaiah 61:1-11; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 12:1-6; Isaiah 43:1-21; Colossians 2:6-15). This message went to the Jews first and to the Gentiles.
Hosea 1:10-11. Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head (Jesus), and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
John 10:16. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold (the house of Judah), them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold and one shepherd (Ezekiel 37:21-28).The land is the heavenly kingdom of God which we have in our hearts by faith when we become born again, whether Jew or Gentile, bond or free, rich or poor, male or female, as the seed of Abraham in Christ Jesus (read Galatians 3:1-29).God prepared Abraham a country and a city in heaven which God made and not man (Hebrew 11:8-16). When we are born again we also inherit the kingdom of God as heirs of God, and joint Heirs with Christ. Hebrew 12:22-24. But ye are come unto mount Sion (Zion), and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly of the church of the firstborn (there is no other ‘church’ recognized by God), which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Israel coming to Jesus is represented by all the Gentiles that are becoming saved from every nation, tribe, kingdom, and tongue.
Ephesians 2:11-22. Wherefore remember, that ye being in times past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now then ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;In whom all the building fitly framed together growth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye are also builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit (This is the only Third Temple: Jesus Christ and his body of which all born again Christians are members in particular – 1Corinthians 12:27). Other scriptures to read are 1Peter 2:9-10,25; Rev. 1:5-6; Rev. 5:9-10; Rev.7:9-17.
Remember, the Israelites were driven into the lands of the Gentiles and assimilated with them over the next six hundred plus years. They always married into the Gentiles against God’s commands before so God has given them over to the Gentile way of life and serving their gods from then on. We also know that the house of Judah became even worse than Israel (Ezekiel 12 to 16). God is describing Jerusalem as a worse harlot then her sister Sodom and her sister Samaria, you could well say, The Mother of Harlots. Exactly as God describes them in Revelation 17. Judah was cast into Babylon for seventy years and during the days of Nehemiah, Ezra, Haggai, Zerubbabel, and others God allowed the restoration of the second temple so that there was a temple for Jesus to come to. As many as hungered for the things of God came back to the second temple though it was not as good as Solomon’s Temple (Haggai 2:3). The LORD foretold that he would shake the nations and fill this latter house with glory (Haggai 2:6-9) greater than the former (Solomon’s) house. This was fulfilled when Jesus came on his official descent from the mount of Olives on the east on the ass’s colt with peace (Haggai 2:1-9; Luke 19:37-38) and announced the destruction of Jerusalem and the house of Judah (Luke 19:41-44). When Jesus came he said he was greater than the temple (Matt. 12:6). When Jesus came he said he was greater than Solomon (Matt.12:42). When Jesus came he said he was the temple (John2:19-21). When Jesus came he was the brightness of God’s glory and the express image of God’s person, clearly the greater glory God spoke about in Haggai 2:9. When Jesus finished pronouncing judgement on the scribes and Pharisees (Matthew 23) Jesus left the temple, and departed from it (Matt.24:1; see Hosea 9:12). Today the world is being run by modern Judaism which is Luciferian and satanic.
Isaiah 11:1-4. (Read from ch.10:20-27) And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth (the word of God), and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.The Branch is Jesus.
Isaiah 10:27. And it shall come to pass in that day (when Jesus came), that his burden (of the Assyrian) shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
The anointing is the yoke destroying anointing of the Holy Ghost shed abroad on God’s people at Pentecost. We see this in Isaiah 11:10-11. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people (Jesus is our ensign, our banner of victory); to it the Gentiles shall seek: and his rest shall be glorious (Matt.11:28-30). And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left (Isaiah 10:19; Romans 9:7-8,27), from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The gathering is in Jesus Christ when he came as Messiah once.
Hebrew 10: 12, 14. But this man (Jesus), after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
Jeremiah 30:7-9. (in that day when Jesus came) Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their King, whom I will raise up unto them.
Matthew 2:2. (There came wise men) Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east (Numbers 24:17-19), and are come to worship him. Vs.16. Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. Vs.17.Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, Vs.18. In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and would not be comforted, because they are not.
Jeremiah 31:15. Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not. Vs.17. And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD, that thy children shall come again to their own border.Now go back to Jeremiah 31:10-11.Jeremiah 31:10-11. Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd doth his flock (John 10:16). For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed (paid the price in blood) him from the hand of him (Satan) that was stronger than he (Jacob).
Micah 5:2-3. (Read the whole chapter) But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall come forth unto me that is to be ruler that is in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting (God himself came in the flesh-1Timothy 3:16). Therefore will he give them up (Micah speaks to Israel and Judah) until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth (a son and called him Jesus for he shall save his people from their sins): then the remnant of his (Jesus’) brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
Romans 8:29. For whom he did foreknow (Rom.11:1-5), he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the first born among many brethren.
Jeremiah 31:27-34. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah, with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast. And it shall come to pass like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict (Jeremiah 1:10); so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the Lord. In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.But everyone shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge (From the cross each child of God is responsible for his own sins, no more generational curse).Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah (the same for all who are saved, Jew or Gentile): Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD;: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more (Psalm 103:1-5).Also Genesis 49:1,8-12, the gathering is in Shiloh-Jesus.
All the prophesies relate to the gathering again of God’s people in Jesus Christ the risen Lord one time only, from the time that he came with the gospel message of repentance unto salvation and sealed the covenant with his blood at the cross. The message is continuous till the day determined whereby God ‘will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he has given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.’ … when the second gathering is complete, then comes the complete end of this present earth (There is no second chance-Hebrew 9:27)(2Peter 3:9-13; Isaiah 66:15-24). This planet will become the lake of fire (Isaiah 34:1-10) and all the called, chosen, elect, and faithful, born again children of God will have new heavens and a new earth to look forward to wherein dwelleth righteousness.
The nations on this planet will be destroyed with the entire earth. Every nation is under the wrath of God. Salvation is individual.
All those who are saved will make up the nations as determined by God before the world began and they will have their set boundaries (read Acts 17:26; Revelation 21:24). When Jesus comes back it will be ‘time no longer’ Rev.10:6. We will move into eternity. We will go up to the third heaven and live in His sight ever more. Praise the Lord. Jesus Christ the living God is the third temple already. It is good to read Revelation 21 from verse 1 to the end. We are part of the third temple (2Corinthians 6:16 because we are the body of Jesus Christ if we are truly born again, bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh (Genesis 2:23; Ephesians 5:30; etc).
John 3:3. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
1Corinthians 2:13-14. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Unless one is a true spirit filled, born again Christian having your soul washed by the water of the word (John 3:5; Eph. 5:26) and filled with the Spirit of God (John 3:5; Eph. 5:18), one is not likely to understand this offering I have presented. Please take the time to read all the chapters from whence I have drawn the verses and pray to God for understanding (11Timothy 2:7).
Consider the following:
1. We are taken up at the last day (John 6:39, 40, 44, 54; John 11:24).
2. The seventh trumpet announces the last day (1Corinthians 15:52; 1Thessalonians 4:16; Rev.10:7; Rev. 11:15).
3. There is no manmade third temple (John 2:19-21 it is already perfect in Jesus Christ, there is no more sacrifice for sin(Heb.10:18)
4. The state of Israel was raised up by regulation of United Nations passed in September 1947 around the time of Yom Kippur and promulgated on the 14th of May 1948. It is the work of man, not the work of God. It’s flag is a hexagram which is a symbol of the highest curse in witchcraft (Not the Star of David). That nation is a curse to all the true people of God. You will see this in Isaiah.
Isaiah 65:11-15. (Talking to Jacob ‘natural Israel, and Judah) But ye are they that forsake the Lord, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number (they ignore God-Matt.22:3-14). Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake , ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the LORD GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name.
Acts 11:26. And when he (Barnabas) had found him (Paul), he brought him to Antioch. And it came to pass that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
Do not be deceived by so-called Christian religions made by man. They all promote the same false endtime doctrine of the Jews who are constantly trying to make people believe they are a chosen race. This is a lie from Satan. The bible clearly states that salvation is by grace not by race (Eph.2:8)
Ephesians 2:8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.V.9. Not of works, lest any man should boast. V.10. For we are his workmanship, created unto Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
11Timothy 1:8-9. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
Galatians 3:26-29 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.
The coming new world order is here already. It was signed up by 160 nations in September 2000 between 6 and 11. One year later ‘they’ had a blood sacrifice sealing their agreement in September 2001. Eleven days later GW bush asked everyone to switch off their lights and light one candle outside for the space station to see in some sort of spiritual empathy. Thus the lights went out in New York and signified a complete takeover of America by stealth. People of America, your country has already been stolen from you. The foreigners who took it will try to use the American military might to bring the global community into total subjection for their satanic purposes. They are based in London, Frankfurt, Washington D.C., and Israel.
If you believe you are Christian, repent, stop playing religion. Seek hard after God through the word in the KJV bible. Separate yourselves from worldly ways and be a genuine living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service, and be not conformed to this world(Romans 12:1-2).
