Do God's Work and all Your Needs will be Met
Fri May 23, 2014 12:22 am by Camille
God always provides for our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

As long as we are doing the work of the Lord God will always meet our needs. As long as we are pointing others to God, He will always see that you have plenty.

Do the work of the Lord share what you know from the bible and share your testimony of how you were healed or set free and God …

Hosea 4:15-18 King James Version (KJV)
15 Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Bethaven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.
16 For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
17 Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.
18 Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.

Hosea 4:15-18 Expanded Bible (EXB)

15 “Israel, you •act like a prostitute [or commit adultery],
but do not let Judah be guilty toward the LORD.
Don’t go to Gilgal [C a city where false worship was taking place]
or go up to Beth Aven [C “house of wickedness,” a derogatory name for Bethel, “house of God”].
Don’t •make promises [swear],
saying, ‘As surely as the LORD lives…’
16 The people of Israel are stubborn
like a stubborn •young cow [heifer].
•Now the LORD will [or Should the LORD now…?] feed them
like lambs in •the open country [a broad meadow].
17 •The Israelites [L Ephraim; C the leading tribe of the northern kingdom of Israel] •have chosen to worship [L is joined to] idols,
so leave •them [L him] alone.
18 When they finish their drinking,
they •completely [or constantly] •give themselves to being prostitutes [engage in prostitution; or go off with prostitutes];
•they [or their rulers; L their shields] love these •disgraceful [shameful] ways.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

15 Judah would fall alter due them coming back to God from time to time, Israel once the kingdom was divided only began to grow further and further away from God. Gilgal was a the home of a group of prophets during the time of the kings, Beth-aven means house of nothing which at this point may have referred to Israel since they were living without God. The promise was made by the Lord on His own name, nothing was more sure than such a swear.

16 a Yoke was put on a cow’s neck to train them so they would not ran around crazy like. A stubborn heifer refers to one without the yoke, one that goes around without any order or sense as Israel was doing without God. The Lord is the Good Shepherd He wants to care for His sheep.

17 Ephraim was the biggest section of Israel, it also may have been the worse sense they had more pagan temples in that area than the others, God was going to back away from Ephraim and let their idols save them.

18 They do what they want get drunk and have sex which at the time both were big parts of pagan worship and were done in the temple, to praise fertility gods.
