Today we read the fourth chapter of the first letter of the Apostle John and four chapters of Hosea.
1 John 4. Test the spirits. There is the spirit of God, and then there are many spirits of the Antichrist. Remember: “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” We know God through love and we see God through love, “We love him, because he first loved us.”
Hosea 9. The prophesy said Israel will be judged because of its sin.
Hosea 10. And because of Israel’s sin it will be taken into captivity.
Hosea 11. Yet, God will show His love for Israel.
Hosea 12. God gave His charge against Ephraim.
