“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” -Hosea 6:6

God’s people (Israel) were prone to disobedience against God. God sent many prophets unto them to warn of coming judgment if they refused to forsake their sinful ways. We read in Hebrews 11 (often referred to as the “Hall of Faith”) that some of the prophets were sawn asunder (into pieces), others were victims of cruel scourgings, some were mocked and stoned, some were tempted, and yet others were slain with the sword (Hebrews 11:36-38). These heroes of the Bible all suffered and died in faith. Sadly, it wasn’t the heathen nations that killed these prophets, but God’s people themselves (Matthew 23:31,37). Can you imagine? God loved Israel enough to send them preachers to warn them about their wickedness. Prophets like Jeremiah and Isaiah preached a message of repentance to the Jews, yet they wouldn’t listen to the knowledge of God.

What is the “knowledge” that Israel lacked that led to their oft destruction? We find the answer in Hosea 4:1,2…

“Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.” —Hosea 4:1,2

The knowledge which the nation of Israel so desperately lacked was the KNOWLEDGE OF GOD. To no surprise, this is exactly the same knowledge which is woefully lacking in America today. America is headed for destruction without the knowledge of God. In so many ways, Americans are wandering into spiritual darkness. I’d like to share a few of these areas of darkness with you. (By the way, my entire website is dedicated to waking the American people up.)
