Hosea 4:9 And there shall be, like people, like priest: And I will punish them for their ways, And reward them their doings.
What an amazing verse! The priest will be like the people. The people will be like the priest. What the people and priest do will determine blessings or pain.
It is so true that people seek out a priest, man of God, like themselves. They are lazy and selfish so they seek that type person out. They want prosperity so they seek out a preacher of that sort. They will even make him rich hoping to get rich.
They want a preacher that will make them feel bad for what they are doing but never expect to see them change. They want a preacher that can be their conscience as long as it is a weak conscience.
Isn’t it time we wanted men of God that will open the Bible and just preach the Bible? Isn’t it time we wanted to know what God wants?
