No knowledge of God

Hosea 4: 6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being My priest.
Since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.

A sermon for pastors

The charges are continuing.
Now the priests are accused by the Lord.

It almost seems to have been written for our time.
▪︎ There is no more knowledge of God,
▪︎ There is no more loyalty,
▪︎ There is no more love.
What we do see everywhere is lies and deception.

It hurts me to say this, but even from many pulpits the congregation is told lies, just so the “pastor” can enrich himself.

How did that happen?
▪︎ This happens because the pastors no longer teach from the law of God. It is said that that old fashioned law has ended. Jesus, and His sacrifice, they say, has put the law out of use. While Jesus Himself says:

Matthew 5:18 NASB
For truly I say to you,
until heaven and earth pass away,
not the smallest letter or stroke
shall pass from the Law
until all is accomplished.

▪︎ This happens because the pastors no longer preach the truth, but instead tell the churchgoers (I use this word intentionally) what they want to hear. And when someone once stands up who dares to tell the congregation the truth, the church council has quickly found a few reasons why this preacher cannot be maintained.

2 Timothy 4: 3-4 NASB
³For the time will come
when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but wanting to have their ears tickled,
they will accumulate for themselves teachers
in accordance to their own desires,
⁴and will turn away their ears from the truth
and will turn aside to myths.

Where does one still hear nowadays against the spirit of the time: ‘Thus says the LORD: My people perish (are destroyed) because they have no (lack) knowledge. “

Many will now protest and designate themselves as a faithful servant. But whether the Lord also holds this opinion is the question.

Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being My priest.
Since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.

Can a minister also be saved?
Only if he returns to the Lord, and to the task assigned to him.
