Today we read the fourth chapter of first 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. Israel will be judged because of its sin.
Hosea 10. Because of Israel’s sin it will be taken into captivity.
Hosea 11. Yet, God will show His love for Israel.
Hosea 12. God gives His charge against Ephraim.
