When i read through the book of Hosea, these words let me think of the situation we face today:
“Hear the word of YAHUAH, you children of Israel (could also be spiritual Israel), for YAHUAH has a case against the inhabitants of the land (earth): For there is no truth or kindness or knowledge of Elohim in the land. Swearing, and lying, and murdering, and stealing, and committing adultery (adultery with idols) have increased. And bloodshed follows bloodshed. Therefore the land mourns, and everyone living there languishes, with the beasts of the field and the birds of the shamayim (heaven). And the fish of the sea are taken away. However, let no one strive or reprove another, for your people are like those striving with a kohein/kohen (a member of priestly class). And you shall stumble in the day, and the nabi (prophet) shall also stumble with you in the night. And I (YAHUAH) shall make your mother (church) perish. My people have perished for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I rejected you from being kohein/kohen (1 Peter 2:9) for Me. Since you have forgotten the Torah of your Elohim, I also forget your children. As they were increased, so they sinned against Me. My esteem they have changed into shame. They eat the sin of My people, and lift up their desire to their wickedness.” (Hosea 4:1-8).
What is the sin of YAHUAH’S People (Israel)? Israel was whoring after Baal. They did not acknowledge that YAHUAH gave he grain, and new wine, and oil, and silver and gold. Instead she worship Baal! (read about it in Hosea 1-3.
Because of Israels whoring YAHUAH has cause all her rejoicing, her Festivals, her New Moons, and her Sabbaths, even all her appointed times, to cease. (Hosea 2:11). YAHUAH said also, “. . .I shall punish her for the days (“Saturdays and Sundays) of the Ba’als to which she burned incense and adorned herself with her rings and jewelry. . .” (Hosea 2:13).
YAHUAH is a Merciful and Glorious Elohim, full of love for His people!!!!!
