Hos. 4:6, “𝗠𝘆 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗼𝘆𝗲𝗱 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝗳 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄𝗹𝗲𝗱𝗴𝗲: 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝗷𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄𝗹𝗲𝗱𝗴𝗲, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
Again, I had this question come to me about .”𝙉𝙤 𝙜𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙘𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙨.❞ As I mentioned in Part 1,
I will therefore briefly touched on it, as I have a full study with mp3 free downloads on this website (www.davidogaga.org).
But before doing that, let me further address the above quoted passage. The first thing here is, .”𝙈𝙮 𝙥𝙚𝙤𝙥𝙡𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙙𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙮𝙚𝙙 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙠 𝙤𝙛 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬𝙡𝙚𝙙𝙜𝙚.❞
So the knowledge of what? Israel simply don’t have the knowledge of God, nor of spiritual things like in our case as it relates to our position in Christ.
They lacked their own interest in the things of God, neither were they aware of the danger that was to befall them. They just walked on blindly and perished. It can be seen also that their ignorance about God was willful.
Again, we re-emphasize that this passage has nothing to do with you knowing the powers of Ashimodi, witches and wizards, neither the root causes of your problems as enshrined in your grandfather’s supposed shrine or the secrets of darkness. No sir!
𝗧𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗼 𝗱𝗼 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗡𝗢𝗧 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗵𝗿𝗶𝘀𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿 𝗼𝗳 𝗛𝗶𝘀 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗳𝗹𝗼𝘄𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝗯𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿.
Thus the Pastors will not tell you this so they can keep you in perpetual bondage to their doctrines of demons; therefore creating fears in you that you might continue to submit to their “Can I go deeper“ tactics.
So the Word says, ❞…𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝗷𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄𝗹𝗲𝗱𝗴𝗲…❞
Had Israel sought wisdom, their true God, they would have been a wise nation among the nations (Deut. 4:6-7) and improved their lives; but here they rejected the fountain of life-God.
Same scenario we can see today within the Body of Christ, that men are not prepared to seek God for themselves to know His mind and will, even in their walk here on earth.
The religious pastors of today have enslaved us to traditions of the elders, and we call it contending for the faith.
Check your churches to see if the people truly know the God they are serving for themselves. Therefore,
.”𝗧𝗵𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗹𝘁 𝗯𝗲 𝗻𝗼 𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝗲.❞
Just like the priesthood of Jeroboam with his calves in all corners. Whosoever wants to be a priest (Parish Pastor), just provide the calves (money) needed and there you have the altar to serve in.
Is there any difference today? Isn’t most of our churches not really glorified shrines, a consecrated priesthood for the highest bidder?
For, “After this thing Jeroboam returned not from his evil way, but ,”𝙢𝙖𝙙𝙚 𝙖𝙜𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙡𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙚𝙤𝙥𝙡𝙚 𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙞𝙜𝙝 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙚𝙨: 𝙬𝙝𝙤𝙨𝙤𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙, 𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙝𝙞𝙢, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙝𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙞𝙜𝙝 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙚𝙨,❞ 1Kgs. 13:33.
This is after He has set up a similar shrine in Bethel to prevent people from going to Jerusalem to worship, (1Kgs. 12:32).
Now you can understand why Paul told Timothy not to lay hands suddenly on anyone for ministry? (1Tim. 5:22.)
Don’t forget Jeroboam had a genuine call (1Kgs. 11:31) before he dropped to this level of idol worship.
Is history not repeating itself in our days?
Yes! the Pastors of today are smart people laying the blame of spiritual ignorance on the saints, even when God is rejecting us because of our ways and lack of true knowledge. But there is a remnant and there is hope.
To be continued…
