Please click the links below to Hosea 1:
Hosea, whose name means "salvation," was a native of Israel(the northern kingdom), not Judah (the southern kingdom), and he prophesied to the northern kingdom.Hosea's ministry followed closely on the heels of Amos' ministry (a prophet from the southern kingdom of Judah who prophesied to the northern kingdom of Israel). Amos and Hosea are the only two Ole Testament prophets whose entire messages addressed the northern kingdom and its coming destruction. Hosea's prophecy was God's last effort to call the Israelites to repent before pronouncing full judgment for their sins. The unfaithfulness of Hosea's wife is recorded as an illustration of Israel's disloyalty and unfaithfulness to God. Gomer pursues relationships with other men, while Israel pursues worthless relationships with other gods; Gomer commits physical adultery, while Israel commits spiritual adultery.
My Spiritual Journal
What I got from Jesus today is: Don't commit spiritual adultery!
I have counselled numerous couples on various marital problems. The most harmful and hurting examples are those who commit adultery, either the husband or the wife. You can never understand the pain unless you are in that kind of darkness!
Here in Hosea, God revealed the pain of spiritual adultery through His faithful servant Hosea. God commanded Hosea to marry "an adulterous wife" to illustrate Israel's spiritual unfaithfulness to God. To some commentators, it seems more likely that Hosea married Gomer when she was still virtuous and sexually pure and that she became a prostitute afterwards. In this sense, the command to take "an adulterous wife" was a prophetic indication of what would happen later in the marriage.
In realty, Christians are worshiping so many "gods" other than God! Either we know or we do not know we have a high possibility committing "spiritual adultery". Why? Jesus is Lord. If Jesus cannot be our Lord each day and we have been controlled by other lords, especially really worshipping other gods, then we are committing spiritual adultery. And, if we are pure, Jesus is our Lord, then we need to allow God to use us as He used Hosea to save other people from "physical adultery" or "spiritual adultery". Are you willing to do so?
Dear Holy Spirit,
Reveal in us whether we are committing spiritual adultery. Work through us that we can help and save those people you have prepared for us to help and save out of physical and spiritual adultery. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
