Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

September 3 - Morning

" Their deeds do not permit them
    to return to their God.
A spirit of prostitution is in their heart;
    they do not acknowledge the Lord."
- Hosea 5:4

Too Ignorant to Repent; Too Evil to Identify Sin    

God is forgiving and is always ready to receive a repentant sinner, but the human nature
is not always willing nor is it always able to confess sin and return to God. Indeed, it is
possible for an individual or a society to become so corrupt that they cannot even
identify sin. A people who have replaced God’s Word with a false philosophy cannot
correctly distinguish wicked deeds from a truly righteous attitude that produces the
works of God.  Israel was too far gone in Hosea’s day to return to God. As the
Assyrian crisis intensified and national disintegration began (four of northern Israel’s
final six kings where assassinated and the last king was taken as a prisoner to
Assyria by Shalmaneser) the people’s deeds did not permit them to take corrective
action and return to God. Destruction was inevitable. What had begun in their hearts
(wills, emotion, intellect, attitude, desires, etc.) as spiritual prostitution searching for
something other than God’s Truth, Reality and Word had led them into ignorance
of God which produced the fruits of wickedness. This 750-721 BC culture could not
find their way out of this great darkness into which they had submerged themselves.

Be careful of a society that does not “acknowledge the Lord” because the
“spirit of prostitution” will lead to philosophies and lifestyles that are contrary
to Truth and Reality and the application of these false philosophies will produce
“deeds” that will remove that society into a darkness where logic and reason
are unattainable. From this hopeless position there is no way for a society to
accurately evaluate their position and return to a God who is always willing to
receive a repentant sinner who is able to identify and confess sin.

  Christian Quote from Church History
Near death British scientist Michael Faraday said: “Speculations I have none. I’m resting on certainties. ‘For I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him for that day.”
Something to Ponder??
The shortest prayer in the Bible is, “Lord, save us!” (Mt.8:25) And, it was answered.
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
barak (Hb) - Bless (Eng) - The Hebrew verb barak means to bring a gift to another person and to kneel. The idea is to honor someone by giving them something out of respect for them. In the Scriptures both us and God bless others by giving them something of value. We give God praise and service, while God gives us physical and spiritual benefits.   In Jeremiah 38:1 two royal servants of Zedekiah are mentioned:
1-Gedaliah son of Pashhur
2-Jehucal son of Shelemiah
Two clay seals (bullae) glazed in Jerusalem’s fire of 586 were found (2005 and 2008) in the royal palace in Jerusalem with their name and their father’s name written in ancient Hebrew.
Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Do I recognize sin? Can I identify my sin towards God and my rebellion against his ways?
Today I will confess my sins to God and walk in a state of fellowship with him.

  "Do not say to your neighbor, 'Come back later; I'll give it tomorrow' - when you now have it with you."
