Who Do You Learn From?

The prophet Hosea was a man who experienced much heartache. The Lord told him to marry one who would not be faithful to him, and from that union came three children whose names all corresponded to the spiritual adultery of Israel. That heartache in his own life was bad enough, but the Lord actually commissioned him to preach to a dying nation, a nation that refused to hear anything of God, much less do anything that the Lord said. As he preached, he identified where the problem actually resided. It resided in the people who did not know the Lord’s way, and the reason why they did not know the Lord’s way was because the religious leaders did not know the Lord’s way (Hosea 4:4-6). The Scripture says that the blind who leads the blind – both fall into the ditch. Will you listen to your preacher or will you listen to God?
