The Revolters

 The Desert Rat speaks:   

“The revolters have gone deep in depravity, but I will chastise all of them...their deeds will not allow them to return to their God. For a spirit of harlotry is within them, and they do not know the LORD. Moreover, the pride of Israel testifies against him, and Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity; Judah also has stumbled with them. They will go with their flocks and herds to seek the LORD, but they will not find Him; He has withdrawn from them. They have dealt treacherously against the LORD, for they have borne illegitimate children...on them I will pour out My wrath like water...he was determined to follow man’s command...I, even I, will tear to pieces and go away, I will carry away, and there will be none to deliver. I will go away and return to My place until they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face; in their affliction they will earnestly seek Me. ‘Come, let us return to the LORD. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us. He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, that we may live before Him” (Hosea 5:1-6:2).

How does become this “good news”?

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3,4).

Look to Him in humble, repentant faith, and be saved “from the wrath of God through Him” (Romans 5:9).
• “He made Him Who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
• “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to Whom be the glory forevermore. Amen” (Galatians 1:3-5).
• “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us” (Galatians 3:13).
• “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace” (Ephesians 1:7).
• “He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed” (1 Peter 2:24).
• “Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18).
• “To Him Who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood...be the glory and dominion forever and ever” (Revelation 1:5).
