Old Testament Story List

Hosea

Men who taught God's will were called prophets. Such men were specially chosen by God to tell the people his words. The Spirit of God helped them know what to say, and they were commanded to proclaim it.

Much of their work was warning the people to turn from their sins and follow God's way. By God's Spirit, the

prophets were often able to tell what would happen in the future if the people did not obey God.

While Isaiah was speaking God's words to the people of Judah, Hosea was warning the people of Israel that their unfaithfulness to God would bring punishment. Hosea tried to help the Israelites to understand what would happen if they did not obey the Lord.
