God’s Love Sometimes Requires Punishment

God’s Love Sometimes Requires Punishment

As God’s people were about to enter the Promised Land God made a covenant with them.  God had promised them the moon – if only they would keep their part of the covenant and remain faithful to the Lord.  700 years later and Hosea’s life and marriage to Gomer are a depiction of Israel’s unfaithfulness.  The people had clearly rejected God and been unfaithful in holding up their part of the covenant.  There are consequences for disobedience to God and the Assyrians would come to exact God’s judgment on His people.
