Hosea 1 and 2

What are the types and shadows that speak to us of entering the presence of God.  We are stripped, washed, clothed with what God specifies anointed with oil and dipped in the sacrificial blood.

Psalm 51:8  "Make me to hear joy and gladness, Let the bones which You have broken rejoice."  If this verse does not line up with your theology, change your theology.

We have to get beyond the point of praying "about" people, to the point where we are praying in union with the heart of God "for" the person.

Verses like Hosea 1:6 are there to test our hearts, like Jesus when He basically called the Syro-Phonecian woman a dog,
"What are you going to do with this statement, run with the opportunity to pridefully REPLACE Israel in the plan of God, or press in and cry out for mercy for them too?

The lesson of Hosea is, "Watch the heart of God."  Watch what He chooses to do about their redemption.  Watch the price, the sacrificial cost of the work that He is doing.

If we are willing to become a dry empty place, THEN, HE will spring forth rivers in the desert.  (and all the glory will go to Him)

The revelation of Jesus Christ will not come through a single person, but through a body of believers.
