The book of Hosea describes America perfectly in the respect that America is guilty of the same crimes as the nation of Israel, and thus deserves the same punishment.
The Prophet Hosea was an end time prophet of his day and continued to call the people to repent or face the impending judgment which God always predicts for certain sins of a nation. AMERICANS are just as guilty of idolatry, immorality and murder, as were the Israelites. Whether the idolatry be Baalism or humanism, it is still founded on the rejection of God and reliance on self (pride).
The Israelites had turned from the only true God to Canaan’s polytheism, thus putting their own will above God’s will. Americans today have chosen secular humanism or other religions and philosophies over Jesus Christ. The United Nations, backed by the United States, is developing laws classified as hate crimes against people who insist that Jesus Christ is the living God. Christians who classify abortion as murder, homosexuality as immoral, Islam as a violent religion and dividing the land of Israel as sin, will be considered guilty of hate crimes. This is dictatorship and hypocrisy. Christians cannot force an atheist or religious person to change their thoughts, so why are they trying to control a Christian's freedom of conscience and speech. America is following the pattern of all countries that control their citizens by taking away their freedoms. Study the history of Germany, Russia, Iran, Sudan or any country led by a dictator or religious fanatic.
The book of Hosea shows us explicitly Hosea's love for God and the sin of rebellion by his prostituting wife, Gomer. Hosea showed the same unconditional love and grace God shows to us, but as with God, grace and mercy has a season and comes to an end, resulting in judgment.
Rebellion manifests itself in immorality (fornication, adultery, homosexuality, incest, sodomy, rape, bestiality, pornography, and prostitution). Rebellion also shows itself in murder. Murder starts with pride, selfishness and insensitivity. Where love protects and serves others, insensitivity to the needs of others results in unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred, gossip, slander, division, cliques, violence and the like, thus destroying the creation of God.
Idolatry, immorality, and the murder of the innocents, as described throughout Hosea and Psalms 106: 34-40, always brings destruction, disease and death. The murder of the innocents was one of the Lord's major indictments against Israel which, unless repented of, would bring certain judgment upon the nation. Man was created with free choice to reproduce himself within the confines of marriage, (animals have no choice as it is governed by instinct). Immorality, which is lust (rebellion/pride), goes against that free choice to create life. Instead, it destroys the moral conscience which is life itself for a nation. Consequently, the nation turns backward toward a beast’s mentality of serving and pleasing itself, thus the rule of the jungle where only the strong survive. God now has no choice but to bring judgment.
Scripture refers to this as The Full Cup Principle: Romans 2:5-8; Colossians 3:5-6; 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16; Matthew 23:32-33; Revelation 18:4-8. There Comes A Point Of No Return - Jeremiah 7:16; 11:11,14; 14:11-16; 30:12-15; Ezekiel 5:11-12; 7:8-9; 8:17-18; 9:9-10; 14:13-14,16,18,20; Nahum 3:19; etc.
In Israel it became legal to kill babies by offering them to Baal or El or Molech. The mothers wanted to please themselves through this sort of idolatry, thus committing murder of their infants. Immediately after giving her baby to the priest to be killed, the mother would go to the male prostitutes where she would try and bury her emotions and conscience under a torrent of sexual activities.
So it is in America, where we kill the most innocent of the innocents by a law called abortion. Mothers wanting to please themselves, selfishly kill their babies by offering them to the doctors who destroy them. Here again, the mother chooses idolatry, putting herself above God and her baby, to continue in lust without concern over destroying life in the process.
The Bible tells us clearly that a human life begins at conception. Psalm 139:13-15.
According to the Human Life Educational Foundation at 6 weeks old the baby is one half inch long.
By 2 months: The heart has been beating 4 weeks; brainwaves, arms, legs, fingers, toes, and even fingerprints exist.
By 3 months: There is vigorous movement; baby swallows, feels pain and practices breathing.
By 4 months: The baby responds to sound, can grasp, and hiccups. The mother feels movement and begins to "show."
By 6 months: The baby's sleeping habits are set, it's growing and gaining weight and waiting to be born.
What happens in an abortion?
Suction Curettage 2-3 months: The arms, legs and other parts of the live baby are sucked out using a vacuum device.
Dilation and Evacuation (D & E) 3-6 months: The live baby is dismembered inside the womb and removed with forceps.
Salt Poisoning - after 4 months: A needle is inserted into the mother's womb. Fluid is removed and replaced with saline poisoning. The live child is burned to death by the salt solution and the mother delivers a dead baby.
Partial Birth Abortion - At 4 1/2 months to full term, the baby is pulled out feet first. The abortionist pierces the live baby's head with a pair of scissors and the brains are removed before completion of the delivery. Babies old enough to live outside their mothers womb are aborted in this way.
Is abortion dangerous?
Abortion is always fatal to the child. The child's mother may also suffer permanent damage.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
Pelvic infection is a common and serious complication of induced abortion and has been reported in up to 30% of all cases.
Increased Risk of Breast Cancer
During a woman's first pregnancy, the cells in her breasts change, preparing to produce milk. An abortion interrupts this transition, almost doubling the risk of breast cancer. With two or more abortions, the risk increases 300-400%. (Yes, teens get cancer too!)
There is 30% increased risk after one abortion and 160% increased risk after two or more.
Emotional and Psychological Problems
Guilt, regret and depression are common results of abortion. Of 4,000 women surveyed after attempting suicide, 1,800 of them had previously had abortions.
America has become a nation worthy of judgment as the Prophet Hosea warned, and without repentance it is certain! Please read Hosea chapters 5 and 6 especially. In the United States of America, we have killed over fifty million babies in a legal medical procedure called abortion. America the protector and savior of freedom and liberty throughout the world is also known as America the exterminator of the most innocent living beings.
Matthew 5:13 reads: “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
Because American Christians have not understood their responsibility to be salt in the government, our legal system has degenerated into an endless volume of decisions comprised by humanists who search for past precedents or traditions by which to judge their current case.
Conservative and liberal political positions both seek humanistic solutions and ignore the authority of the Scriptures. Liberals focus more on state solutions, while conservatives stress the autonomy of the individual. Both continue to erode the values of God and the character of people as they replace the laws of God with the philosophies of men.
God holds governments responsible for enforcing His laws as my articles explained in “The Science of Judgment”, a 14-part series. Democracy (the will of the people) is not Scriptural. The majority of people rebel against God, wanting their own selfish ways at the expense of the righteous. This was true of Sodom and Gomorrah, Nineveh, and the world in Noah‘s day.
America was meant to be a Republic under God, not a Democracy which ends up in socialism where the majority want what others have without following God’s conditions to possess material prosperity. Finally, selfishness (democracy) is blind, and fools who have turned their backs on the truths of God come under a spirit of deceivableness. Eventually they accept the leadership of a dictator as their nation deteriorates under the laws and philosophies of men. (Refer to 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12.)
Our government in America is in idolatry. It makes laws in direct opposition to the laws of God. Such as those permitting abortion, and protecting and encouraging the lifestyle of sodomites. As Jonah warned Nineveh, so we should be sharing truth without compromise concerning God’s attitude toward people and nations who engage in such abominable acts.
This is what Jim Rudd, Director of Christian Street Preachers Alliance in Washington D.C., states concerning homosexuality:
“Sodomy is not a light or transient crime, it is an abomination (Lev. 18:22). It is the culmination of man’s apostasy and hostility toward God and His Church (Rom. 1:18-32). For lawmakers and judges to approve of sodomy brings eternal damnation upon themselves (Rom. 13:2) and God’s righteous judgment of death on the society as a whole (Gen. 19:24, 2 Peter 2:6). Therefore, such lawmakers and judges are not only anti-Christian by approving of sodomy; they make the civil government a vile cesspool from which the abominations vomit out across the land. By displaying such a contempt for the administration of Justice, such civil officials are not only the source of defilement (Lev. 18:24-25), they are the criminals (Rom. 1:32), and a hostile enemy authorizing the destruction of the society in which we live (Jude 7). Not only should Christian men fight for the safety of their families by demanding that these civil officials repent, or resign from office immediately; Christians should be demanding the strongest laws and punishments against sodomy be put into effect so as to cleanse the pestilence from our society, (Lev. 20:13). Sodomy is an abomination (Lev. 18:22), and those who engage in sodomy are so vile that their very presence defiles the land (Lev. 18:22, 25).”
“Through the administration of Justice, God gives the civil officials the authority to prevent society, and the land, from being defiled. The civil officials swing the sword to ‘…execute wrath upon him that doeth evil’ (Rom. 13:4) and in this case sodomites. It should also be noted that because of the pro-active, intrinsic nature of God’s judgments upon any society defiled by these abominations (Lev. 18:25-30), it is impossible for Christians to passively coexist in such a vile society. Our demand that the civil officials administer Justice is based upon the concern for and protection of innocent people, and what iniquities will come upon us all should Justice not be upheld…What are you going to do about it? Are you going to be a man of God, stirred in the spirit, and call men in your church to come stand with you as you go confront those sodomites with the Word of God? Or, are you going to teach the children in your church, by example, how to passively co-exist with these vile unbelievers that bring God’s righteous judgment of death upon all who passively co-exist with them? (Jude 7) All preachers are commanded to ‘do the work of an evangelist’ (II Tim. 4:5). As the Book of Acts clearly illustrates, the primary attacks in the battle of overcoming a society’s sinful moral conditions are not to be fought by the laity (Acts 13:2), but are to be fought by the ‘men of God’ going out from behind their pulpits into the real world (Acts 13:47), and confronting sinners in their sin with the Word of God—it’s their business! (2 Tim. 3:16-4:5) There are absolutely NO substitutes for the ‘men of God’ (2 Tim. 3:17), with Bible in hand, going to the places where sinners are publicly flaunting their sin and confronting them with what God says about their sin. The sheer weight of conviction upon unbelievers being confronted by real ordained men of God cannot be substituted by the Christian butcher, baker, candlestick maker, or the mom with three kids.” Jim Rudd
The above comments by Jim Rudd are blunt and it comes across as harsh, but I feel the truth contained in his statements should not be ignored.
I want to clarify that we as Christians need to love and deeply care for every person. The homosexual or lesbian needs the love of Jesus and caring believers to help them come out of their wounded condition and find freedom, deliverance and eternal life. I recorded a three-hour short wave radio series entitled “Sodomites”. This series discusses the responsibility of the government concerning this behavior. It gives statistics that three percent of the population in America are homosexual, yet eight out of ten serial killers are sodomites. These statistics further show the average length of a sodomite’s life is 30 years less than a normal man and America is facing a major health catastrophe over this lifestyle. The major news agencies and the government itself are neither alerting us to this fact nor making laws to protect the population from this plague. Proportionately the sodomite community is much more violent, and much less healthy; yet, we are not warning the general population in America of the dangers.
Please read the following articles which will help verify the reality of the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism as well as the true identity of Islam:
The Covenant News May 28, 2001 - Medical Consequences Of What Homosexuals Do - Throughout history, all civilizations and all major religions have condemned homosexuality. In the [original] American colonies, homosexual acts were a capital offense. Thomas Jefferson said that homosexuality 'should be punished, if a man, by castration, if a woman, by cutting through the cartilage of her nose a hole of one-half inch in diameter as least .2.' Until 1961 homosexual acts were illegal throughout America...This was taken from a six page medical article which is graphic and brutally honest about what gays do and the diseases that result from their behaviors both to themselves and society. The different types of homosexual activities and the diseases associated with them that are covered in this article are: oral/penile sex, anal/penile sex, oral/anal sex, urine sex, fisting/toys sex, fecal sex-eating-enemas, torture sex, public/orgy sex and sex with minors.
The Washington Times Oct 22, 1999 - Media Tune Out Torture Death of Arkansas boy (two homosexual men tortured and murdered a boy named Jessie Dirkhising).
WorldNetDaily.com Sept 22, 2002 - The Tragic Story of Jessie Dirkhising This is a nine page article that reports how a 13 year old boy was used as a sex toy while being tortured to death for five hours. Two homosexual men "bound the seventh-grader with nylon rope, placed a T-shirt blindfold over his head, and gagged his mouth with a pair of dirty underwear secured by a bandana and duct tape. After propping pillows beneath Dirkhising's abdomen, Brown sodomized him with three fingers, his penis, a frozen banana, and a urine enema laced with the sedative drug amitriptyline while Carpenter watched, masturbating, in the bedroom doorway...In a post-conviction interview, Robert C. Balfe, Benton County, Ark., lead prosecutor, said, "The evidence shows the last thing that occurred to Jessie when he was alive was that he was being anally raped with the cucumber by Brown. Carpenter was so concerned over the aggressiveness of the rape, that he wrote a note to Brown telling him to back the cucumber out to 3 inches because it could cause 'serious damage.' They then duct taped the cucumber in Jesse's anus and went to eat their sandwiches. I believe that this last violent act was more than Jesse could endure and he gave up and died..."

Senator Val Stevens, Washington State Senate, 39th Legislative District, was recently a guest on my Warning Television Program and shared the dangers of immorality sweeping our nation. She wrote on June 15, 2007 - Sex education in Washington: How local school districts and parents were locked out - "This year in Olympia, parents were sold out. The Democratic super majority ramrodded a bill through the Legislature that takes complete control over what their children are taught about sex. Parents will have no say in the matter. No school board meeting to voice their opinion and no forewarning. Starting with the fourth grade, the State Department of Health and the Superintendent of Public Instruction have been instructed to write the curriculum that will include information about both homosexual and heterosexual sex and contraception. It is scheduled to be ready and coming to their child's school by September of 2008...What can parents do? Not a lot. According to the legislation, parents will not be advised of the sex education classes or invited to review the curriculum. They can see the curriculum, but only if they find out about it and insist upon seeing it. Parents can't change the curriculum, but can have their children opt out of the sex education classes, although the request must be presented to the school in writing. How many parents will know about this in time to protect their child's innocence?`"
I also interviewed Maria Lancaster (mother of a Snow Flake Baby) who informed us about the difference between Adult Stem Cell Research and Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Embryonic Stem Cell Research is really just another form of abortion as the baby is killed. Adult Stem Cell Research has no moral/ethical ramifications as no one is injured, hurt or killed, just extra cells harvested.
Reading 2 Peter 2:6-8 again: “And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)”
The Bible is clear! Homosexuality is NOT an alternate lifestyle. Abortion, Embryonic Stem Cell Research and false religions are NOT good and acceptable. If we continue to listen to the propaganda, without raising our voices in opposition, then we vex our souls and the soul of our nation. As a result, society begins to accept this rhetoric and become brainwashed with a one-sided view. Consequently, the nation and all those living in it come under the judgment of God.
