Hosea 14

O israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.

Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.

Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.

I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.

Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    It’s time for those that are lost to come back home while his mercy last on them.
    Thank You Jesus!!

  2. 8 Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.

    The Lord is still speaking to the church in verse 8. He wants the idols of His people to be a thing of the past. He reminds us that He is our protector and provider.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  3. Hosea 14:2
    Bring your confessions, and return to the lord. Say to him, “Forgive all our sins and graciously receive us, so that we may offer you our praises.

    Being baptized in Jesus name is a beautiful life changing moment. No matter how far away we have run from God he always welcomes us back with open arms. He loves us all so much. Thank you Jesus.

  4. 4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

    People tend to label those of us that struggle in the Christian walk. However the Lord is a God of second chances and our success is not from our abilities, but from what the Lord does in our life. All hope is not lost for the backslider because the Lord is waiting on a repentant heart.

  5. 4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

    The plea has been given unto those that have turned away from God and to be given a chance to become righteous and holy again. There are many times God will give each of us a chance to return unto the grace and mercy so that we will be renewed by his spirit and turn from our wicked ways. God is gracious Gid and there is none like him. He will easily forgive us and renew us. The greatest thing about God is that he loves us unconditionally and we can be his child even though we have failed him. He wants us to cast our cares on him for he cares for us.

    We have the opportunity to show others the true love of Jesus Christ and be an example of what grace looks like. Don’t let the chance pass you by, get out of the church house and spread the gospel and love of Jesus Christ to every sinner and saint alike. We have the opportunity to the greatest revival that the modern day church has ever seen. Time is wasting away, make the most of the time we have left n

  6. 8. “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” NLT

    Galatians 5:
    22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

    23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

    All of this fruit comes from the same Spirit – the Spirit of God. God is like an evergreen tree; He doesn’t have seasons where He hibernates and His leaves fall, but His fruit is available to us all year long!

  7. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    MERCIFUL GOD

    4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

    The nature of our LORD JESUS is Mercy. HE demonstrated this MERCY when HE gave HIS life on the CROSS for our sins. We learn here from the prophet the true depth of HIS love toward us.

    REPENTANCE from man turns the wrath of GOD away. The Kingdom of GOD is pretty simple, we REPENT and OBEY GOD. The HE loves, forgives, resrtores, protects, provides and restores us.

    JESUS demonstrates HIS MERCY toward us in this way. When we turn to HIM then HE forgives and heals us. Encourage someone today to turn to JESUS, turn away from their sin and rebellion and turn to JESUS.

    Our MERCIFUL GOD will forgive and turn HIS judgement away.

  8. 9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    We are responsible for the choices that we make in life, and all choices have consequences. We can follow the instructions in this chapter, and if we have gone astray, served other gods, we can return, repent and the Lord will open His arms to us. If we choose to continue in serving other gods, then we will suffer the consequences of that choice as well.

    Let us be wise and understand the heart of God. His heart is not to punish us, but to give us the everlasting life that He died for, so that we might live. I choose life today – life eternal, life in the spirit. I choose to live and give Jesus!

  9. 4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

    That this would be our prayer for us and prodigals, we would come back unto HIM with our whole heart!!! In JESUS NAME!!!

  10. “Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭14:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Pray for Wisdom today, that Jesus may fill you with his Spirit and you may walk in truth. Ask that he lead your steps today that you may reach someone who no one else can. He will guide you just be sensitive to the Spirit.

  11. 4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.
    5 I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

    All God has ever asked of his people is for their loyalty. If he is casting down judgment it is because he is a righteous judge, but all of his heart has always yearn for a close relationship with his people.

  12. The Lords mercy is just, and beautiful. His gifts come with out repentance. So when we finally decide(decide we finally will) to turn to God and drop our wicked ways. The Lords mercy is still there.

    “Its branches will spread out like beautiful olive trees, as fragrant as the cedars of Lebanon. My people will again live under my shade. They will flourish like grain and blossom like grapevines. They will be as fragrant as the wines of Lebanon.”
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭14:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God has plans for you to prosper this whole time. Because you fail/ and sin doesn’t mean you won’t see it again. Turn to Jesus once more and he’ll fulfill you with joy and promise

  13. 9 NLT “Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
    ‭‭
    A wise person will choose to obey God’s way, knowing it’s the only way. But a foolish unbeliever will ignore them and find themselves stumbling and falling. Be wise, choose God!

  14. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus2
    Hos 14:1 O Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.

    This is a simple thought but so true…right here in this verse God is describing what it means to “fall away”. To be caught up in iniquity is to be caught up and tripped in sin. The word “iniquity” here means perverse. Perverse simple is a word that describes “crooked”. Being a “crook” definitely qualifies you as “fallen from the Lord”.

  15. ““O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭14:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    “for thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭34:14‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    He’s a good, good Father that protects and provides. Hallelujah!! So why not put down every idol that has no life. I’m His word there is no lack of His promises toward us.

    “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
    ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  16. “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.”
    Hosea 14:8 NLT

    Our God is awesome and there is none like Him! Don’t bother making excuses or making your own way, Jesus is the one true living God and we should worship Him as such! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever – we can depend on Jesus in all things!

  17. Repentance from man turns the rath from God away. This statement from the word is so dynamic! God is so faithful and caring! But sometimes this is confused as a green light to do what one wants and just ask forgiveness. When you truly live for God you always strive to do what he wants is to do and one will not fall into that category. I love POFW LIVEJESUSGIVEJESUS2

  18. Hosea 14:9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    Proverbs 10:29 The way of the Lord is strength to the upright : but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.

    Psalm 1:6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

    Be wise and Keep walking in righteousness !

  19. Hosea14: 9 [ Amp] Who is wise, that he may understand these things? Prudent, that he may known them? For the ways of the Lord are right, and the ( uncompromising) just shall walk in them; but transgressors shall stumble and fall in them.
    Ps. 107: 43 [amp] Whoso is wise [ if there be any truly wise] will observe and heed these things; and they will diligently consider the mercy and loving- kindness of the Lord.
    Consider his ways , His wisdom and his skills, his love, and his strength and his power.

  20. Hosea 14
    4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

    5 I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

    6 His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

    7 They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

    The beauty of God’s love and forgiveness .
    Watch they are coming !
    They are afraid and embarrassed by the lifestyle they have lived. Their hearts are truly wanting to return and some are so close to coming back. We must continue to pray ! We must be ready and be sure that we show the love for them. I was privileged to
    be able to share recently with some who have strayed away that God has never left Je is just waiting for their return and though we make wrong choices as have not been obedient He is still the Father waiting.
    The backslider needs healing . This verse says that God will heal their backsliding and love them . We are His Hands. We must reach not with condemnation but with love and allow God to mend them. So yes we must keep praying and believing . They are broken and ashamed but I know the Potter Who wants to put them back together again .

  21. 1 O israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.
    2 Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us …
    4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.
    5 I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

    There is love in these verses and longing of a father for his son to come home. He knows they need healing for what caused them to backslide and is willing to reach for them. It’s the goodness of God that brings us to repentance many times and it is shown here. Hearts can be softened and minds opened by his hands and our prayers so that many will return, be healed and saved.

  22. “The Lord says, “Then I will heal you of your faithlessness; my love will know no bounds, for my anger will be gone forever.”
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭14:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We serve a gracious and merciful God who loves and longs for us to abide in His peace He has given us. I thank God for showing us a love that knows no bounds.

    6 His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

    8 Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.

    God always take care of his people when we walk in his Spirit for he is a righteous and loving God.

  24. 7 My people will again live under my shade. They will flourish like grain and blossom like grapevines. They will be as fragrant as the wines of Lebanon. 8 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” 9 Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.

    My LORD, You are the Lover of our souls. You are always green, You are the tree that provides shade! There is shelter, there is a cool breeze, there is such a refreshing that comes by being underneath Your Branches. Hallelujah!! 🌳🍃

  25. 2 take with you words and turn to him and say unto him:
    Take away all iniquity and receive us graciously so will we render the Calves of our sheep.

    Don’t come empty handed. If there is conviction
    Then, there must be some words to say.
    Not like God does not know.
    But at least let us say something.
    🙏 that I may always keep the desire of wanting to do right
    In your sight , because then, only then will I acknowledge
    My wrongs.
    Or if I am lost, 🙏( sin against you) that I may immediately
    Acknowledge and get it right.

  26. “When the tribe of Ephraim spoke, the people shook with fear, for that tribe was important in Israel. But the people of Ephraim sinned by worshiping Baal and thus sealed their destruction. Now they continue to sin by making silver idols, images shaped skillfully with human hands. “Sacrifice to these,” they cry, “and kiss the calf idols!” Therefore, they will disappear like the morning mist, like dew in the morning sun, like chaff blown by the wind, like smoke from a chimney.”
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭13:1-3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    What words do we take with us? The best words are the words God gives us in His Word. When we communicate to God in the words and ideas of Scripture, we find an articulate and effective voice before God.

  27. 2 Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.

    This verse is foretelling that animal sacrifices will cease and we will bring words to God in repentace, sacrifice, praise and thanksgiving. Not vain repetition, but, words from the heart.

  28. Hosea 14
    WOW! Our GOD is So Good and So Merciful and So full of Love for us!
    This chapter reminds us that if we will Return to God and Repent and Confess our sins, He will be Merciful and Heal us, Love us, and Bless us.

    Thank You JESUS. YOU are an AWESOME GOD!

  29. 4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.
    5 I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

    Jesus is so merciful. If we turn to him there is forgiveness healing and mercy.

  30. The Living Bible
    vs-4
    Then i will cure you of idolatry and faithlessness and my love will know no bounds for my anger will be forever gone.
    LOVE FREELY
    When God heals and recrives sinners He chooses to love us freely. The thought is UNCONDITIONALLY. God doesnt hold our past against us. He simply showers love on us.

  31. Hosea Chapter 14

    9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    Let us understand that repentance is wise and prudent. If we are to righteous than we need a we need clean hands and a pure heart.

    Psalm 24:4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. :5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

    What a promise and it is for us as we press into him. Let this day be led through the Spirit. Enjoy your walk with Him.

  32. 3 Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.

    I think this was talked about Sunday morning… trusting in the flesh…

  33. 9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    Only when the smiths gone their skills will they be able to walk continually in the ways of the Lord. We have to purposely choose all day every day to seek Jesus, that is why the prudent man knows and walks upright.

  34. 4…”I will love them freely”…

    There is no cost for the Love of Jesus Christ! He loves us FREELY! He loves us through our inconsistency, our doubts, and faithlessness.

    There is no other love like the Love of Jesus Christ! I can’t help but be reminded of the song; Reckless Love.

    “Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
    You have been so, so good to me
    Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
    You have been so so kind to me

    Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
    Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the 99
    And I couldn’t earn it I don’t deserve it, still You give yourself away
    Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God”

    There is nothing that we could ever do to earn His Love. We are blessed to able to receive and Love Him with our own wills.

  35. 4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

    “I will heal their backsliding”

    Jesus knows that we are liable to fall for a thousand temptations, He does not look to rebuke us, but heal us from those things.

    Not because we deserve it but because He loves us.

  36. Jesus Christ to every sinner and saint alike. We have the opportunity to the greatest revival that the modern day church has ever seen.

  37. Verse 9 “Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.” The choice is yours that you make every day whether to walk in righteousness or keep stumbling around with sin until you fall. LIVE-GIVE JESUS²

  38. Hosea 14
    Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    1-3 O Israel, come back! Return to your God!
    You’re down but you’re not out.

    Not Out ! Thank You Jesus where there is life there is hope!

  39. “I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.”
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭14:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Oh how good it is to know that we can be loved freely. Thankful that my sins can be forgiven. Thankful for a god who will love me in spite of all that I am. No matter my inconsistency or troubles. “ he loves us oh how he loves us oh how he loves us oh how he loves”. Because of his goodness any mercy we can praise and be thankful in all that we do.

  40. 9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

  41. 4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

    God loves us all! It doesn’t matter how you are or what you have came from. Are you following His path? You should be following His path always. I pray tonight that you put everything aside and make sure you are always right with God!

  42. Hosea 14 is the fourteenth chapter of the Book of Hosea in the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. This chapter contains the prophecies attributed to the prophet Hosea son of Beeri as an exhortation to repentance and a promise of God’s blessing.

  43. 9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    God’s way is right. It has always been and will always be. The way of a transgressor is hard according to the word of God. once we realize that truth comes from the word of God, we can access that power that God has given us. If we are to be what God has called us to be, we must be willing to dive into his word and not turn back.

  44. “Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭14:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God has a certain path for each of his children, no one may have the same. The Lord has our whole lives planned out, he knows when we’re gonna do right and he knows when we’re gonna mess up. He will also have us go through many trials in life that we may not understand, but we must have faith in him during it all for he is doing it for a purpose. And while you are following Gods path, he is making you stronger than the enemy and wiser, while those turning away from his path are weaker to the enemy. I pray we trust what God has for us and obey his word and commands, and we help others realize that it is God that is best for all of us.

  45. 9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    Gods ways are right. We will walk them. Bad people will fall to hell. That is what the last three verses are meaning to say. We have to walk in the path of god or we will fall to hell. Let’s do the right path. So we can be with god and not fall in fire for eternity.

    JESUS LOVES YOU!

  46. 2 Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.

    Repentance is a wonderful gift. It rebuilds our relationship with the Lord. We should never take this for granted or abuse it. Instead allow God’s goodness and grace to mold our character and make us better.

  47. 9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    Have you ever wanted to be called wise?? Simple instructions are nestled in this verse. #1 – Be Prudent, #2 The Ways of God Right/Follow Those Ways.the wise understand the severity of these two simple steps.

  48. “Return, Israel, to the Lord your God. Your sins have been your downfall! Take words with you and return to the Lord. Say to him: “Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips. Assyria cannot save us; we will not mount warhorses. We will never again say ‘Our gods’ to what our own hands have made, for in you the fatherless find compassion.””
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭14:1-3‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    What a beautiful example of Old Testament repentance. It is a wonderful example for repentance for us putting other things before God. Today we might not call the other things “our gods “ but that is what we have made them. Oh for us to take this example and follow it so that we can follow God with our whole heart!

  49. 9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

    When I look back over my life I realize how good God is and that because of His goodness there were often time I just didn’t understand. Yet, He kept me close and protected. He kept me from falling and taught me lessons and strengthened me. I would rather walk with Him than to fall into sin.

  50. 9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

  51. “O Israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.”
    ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭14:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    We must turn our hearts to God and turn our back to iniquity. 

    “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.”
    ‭‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭7:14-15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  52. 4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

    I Will

    Gods promises are yay, and amen

    Hebrews 6:17 New Living Translation
    God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his mind.

    Our God is not a man that he should lie, it is these promises that we need to grab ahold of, and trust. If God has made the promise, HE WILL!
