Hosea 4:6 — “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Because you have rejected knowledge,

I also will reject you from being My priest.

Since you have forgotten the law of your God,

I also will forget your children. (NASB)

It is a powerful and ominous statement that God pronounces over Israel in Hosea 4:6:  God says Israel will be destroyed because they lack a very specific type of knowledge.  What knowledge might God be talking about?

  • Knowledge of God’s existence
  • Knowledge of sin and its consequences
  • Knowledge of God’s character as represented by the Law
  • Knowledge of Satan and his schemes
  • Knowledge of the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light

Are there areas in your life where you lack Biblical knowledge?

What are you willing to do to address this lack of knowledge?

Praying for you.
