What is the Spirit of Harlotry?

The prophet Hosea had a word of warning for the people of Israel, one that was brought with a vivid illustration of how the Lord viewed their worship. We are familiar with God using visions and dreams to speak to his people, but prophets were also often instructed to perform physical acts symbolizing either the listeners’ spiritual state, the coming judgment, or the promised restoration. This is true in the Book of Hosea.

Who Was Athaliah in the Bible?

Who was Athaliah in the Bible? The Jewish queen most people are familiar with from the Bible is Queen Esther; however, although Esther was Jewish, she was the queen of Persia and did not reign in her own right. Athaliah is the only queen, either in Israel or Judah, that reigned in her own right … even though that reign was obtained illegally.The account of Athaliah’s reign is found in 2 Kings 8:16-11:16 and 2 Chronicles 22:10-23:15.This is part of the 2019 One Year Chronological Bible study

Unclean Hands

So what does this have to do with this book? This past year, we had seven marches in two days in Houston.  Six on Saturday in communities around the city in the formation of the Star of David and one in Central Houston on Sunday.  Eleven Nazi descendants flew in on Friday to speak at the different locations.  On Saturday night, the planning team had dinner with the Germans. We know their story.  They are warring for change in their community by breaking the silence, exposing what really happened, and repenting. One of them asked Mitch, “So what does your city have to repent of?” He replied, “Well, we have the largest abortion mill in the nation, we are a major hub for human and sex trafficking . . . ” and went on with a list of other things.
