Topic: Stop Promoting Evil

Read: Hosea 5:8-6:1-6 (NKJV)

8. ” Blow the ram’s horn in Gibeah, The trumpet in Ramah! Cry aloud [at] Beth Aven, ‘[Look] behind you, O Benjamin!’
9. Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke; Among the tribes of Israel I make known what is sure.
10. “The princes of Judah are like those who remove a landmark; I will pour out my wrath on them like water.
11. Ephraim is oppressed [and] broken in judgment, Because he willingly walked by [human] precept.
12. Therefore I [will be] to Ephraim like a moth, And to the house of Judah like rottenness.
13. “When Ephraim saw his sickness, And Judah [saw] his wound, Then Ephraim went to Assyria And sent to King Jareb; Yet he cannot cure you, Nor heal you of your wound.
14. For I [will be] like a lion to Ephraim, And like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, [even] I, will tear [them] and go away; I will take [them] away, and no one shall rescue.
15. I will return again to My place Till they acknowledge their offense. Then they will seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.”
16. Come, and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.

Sinners provoke God and make Him pronounce judgement on them and the judgement after then. Just as the different tribes in Israel provoked God and awaited His wrath, many countries of the world today, are accumulating God’s wrath by sponsoring and promoting evil.

Today, many people sponsor and promote armed robbery, kidnapping, ritual killing, immorality, child trafficking, cultism and abortion. People provoke God, day after day and He is not happy, because of the sins which have become the order of the day. However, God in His mercy pleads that we retum to Him. He makes it clear that we will only embrace His mercy when we return to Him with all our heart. God desires mercy and not burnt offerings.

When we sincerely return to God through genuine repentance, His mercy will triumph over judgement. God desires all men to be saved. He is not willing that any should perish. Repent today from all your sins and receive His pardon. He is a merciful and loving Father.

PRAYER: God of mercy, forgive us our sins. Cleanse us from all Unrighteousness and give us a new spirit and a new heart through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
