Hosea 13:9-16

We find in these Hosea 13, God’s resolve to deliver His people, in spite of all their sins. The conflict here is between God’s hatred of the abominable acts of His people and His ancient, unchanging love. Sin leads to death and the grave but God had a message of hope for His people, that if they followed Him, death and the grave don’t have a stronghold on them.

God gives us victory over death and the grave. Jesus has conquered death and the grave through His unselfish act of love on the cross. As believers we have the hope of heaven and we have this hope through Jesus our Savior.

The apostle Paul saw in the resurrection of Christ the absolute defeat of death and the absolute and everlasting triumph of the power of God. We look forward to the ultimate and final resurrection when Jesus Christ returns.

It is a wonderful thing to know that even though we may stray from God’s grace and will for our lives, we can still come back.

    “God gives us victory over death and the grave.”

    God informs us in Romans 6:23 that the wages of sin is death; and, we have Adam’s sin in the “King James Version” of Genesis 2:17 reaping death within that same day. Adam lived 930 year (Genesis 5:5) – supporting that a day with God is equal to 1,000 years with man (2 Peter 3:8). Furthermore, in Genesis 5:24, we have the “reverse” example of Enoch walking with God (presumably without sin) escaping death (Hebrews 11:5).

    Since there was not a recording of how Enoch walked with God, sin became defined with far too many rules and mandates. Therefore, to simplify, Jesus came to this earth to show us “the way” (John 14:6 ).

    When we accept Jesus as God’s Son and our Savior, we are forgiven of our sins (Romans 10:9) and given the Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13 & Acts 2:38) to assist us (John 14:16) with the repentance of our current sins (whereas we might be perfected–2 Corinthians 7:1– in the faith), eliminating the sin in our life that takes us from the curse of death to the blessing of overcoming death.

    Enoch walked faithfully with God for many years (Genesis 5:22) allowing time for God’s will to be done.
