"The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a Rod of Iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. And I will give him the morning star." – Revelation 2:26-28 (ESV)
Part 3 of the Milestone sermon walks through Hosea 6,13, and 14, covering Israel’s false repentance and punishment, and a believers true repentance and blessing. Again we see a comparison between the rampant immorality of their day and their lack of theology mirrored in our own country.
From the book of Hosea, an indictment from the Lord to the people of Mansfield, Texas, the United States, the world, all of humanity. This indictment has two parts:
1. We are without morality
2. We have no knowledge of God
This first sermon reviews God’s attributes. God isn’t only His moral character but also His ontological reality: both His communicable and incommunicable attributes.
