For Sunday Nov. 28
Hosea 11:12-14:9, 2021-11-28
11:12 “surrounded Me with lies, and…deceit” God so accuses Israel. Has deceit crept into the church? Is the world’s accusation of hypocrisy in the church justified? Is God as angry with us as he was at Israel?
12:2a How do we reconcile this with 11:12b?
12:8 Do we self-delude?
13:2 Have we gone this far astray?
13:10, 11 Is this where Israel began to forsake God? Was Israel better or worse after the establishment of an earthly kingdom?
13:12 Must sin be dealt with? Is grace without justice grace?
13:14 How does Paul interpret this verse in 1 Corinthians 15:55?
14:1, 2; 12:6 “Return” The Bible preaches repentance repeatedly in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. Do we the modern church preach repentance? Do these verses promise that Israel can avoid exile by repenting?
14:4-8 Do these verses describe the fruit of repentance?
