God told Hosea to marry a harlot. I don't think Hosea was any different than men today. I think the ole boy got really happy. “Lord, can you say that again?” You heard me Hosea, go marry that pretty worldly gal you've been looking at, Gomer. I think Hosea was very happy, at first, but I sincerely don't think he saw what was coming. After bearing him three children, Gomer forsook Hosea, chasing after wicked men. That sure sounds like America today! I have heard tragic stories, one after the other all my life, from men and women alike of unfaithful spouses who betrayed, hurt and eventually abandoned them. Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” God's judgment cannot rest forever!
