Lesson from page's! named Jezreel which means "God scatters." God uses the child's name as a message of impending destruction for Israel. No attention is paid to the warning. Hosea and Gomer have a second child, a girl this time, and God names her "Lorahamah," which means "not loved" or "not pitied." This is another warning to the Israelites that their continued sinful behavior would result in a loss of God's love and His forgiveness. Very soon after Lorahamah's birth another son is born and is named Loammi, which means "not my people." God uses the boy child's birth as an indicator that He intends to fulfill His promise to sepa rate from Israel just as they had separated themselves from Him with their disobedience. "Though the people need to be and will be punished with Assyrian rule over them, God yet promises that they will be blessed in the future. This blessing is dependent on a united Israel. Israel's union with Judah will result in reconciliation with God and His chosen people (w.10-11). For Your Consideration: *Why does God name Hosea and Gomer's children? ?How do you think the names affected the children themselves? . ?Do you think God's way of showing love differs from that of today's world? If so, how? Life's Application: "There are times when we fail spiritually and morally. But just as Hosea and God showed love to those who treated them unlovingly, so too the Lord continually reaches out in love to His most rebellious chil dren (David C. Cook, Bible Lesson Commentary 2015 16). Lots of marriages today end in divorce and no recon ciliation. When there is too much discretion to name today, we use the term "irreconcilable differences." In some type of way we have broken our covenant with our marriage partner and forgiveness is not forthcoming. But as saints of God we thank Him because regardless of our sin, He is still just to forgive us (1 John 1:9). And we can repent and be taken back into God's loving arms. Lucky us! With the help of the Holy Spirit, we too can be forgiv ing and loving, modeling His character and deeds. "When we love as Sod does, we ask nothing in return, show com passion and remain faithful in our display of affection (David C. Cook, Bible Lesson Commentary 2015-16). We need not be the "unfaithful bride." CAfJE from pagTBS place for them to go. "Tonight we had an anniversary for our pastor J and co-pastor. They do a lot for us and we just wanted to show our appreciation for them by first giving God all the glory and showing our love for them being here, and just show ing how much we care for them. And I just want everyone to be blessed and stay in Christ and help one another in the name of Jesus," said Minister' Branden Clark, a young man who found Christ at the age of 18 and looks to spread the word to other young people. The evening's events were filled with soulful hymns and wonderful words by members of the congregation. Christ Temple was joined by members of New Generation Praise and Worship International Ministries and the pastor, Bishop Melvin Wilkins Jr. The bishop delivered the sermon for the anniver sary. The members of Christ Temple presented r*the Williamses with a won derful card, along with a three-day vacation to the beach. When speaking of why he chose to deliver the evening's message, Wilkins said: "Pastor Williams is one of my spir itual sens, and is an awe some man, and I love him - and his wife. The Lord gave me the word to let him know that this is his time for favor. He has been through a lot of transition in his ministry and we wanted to encourage him, and God is going to contin ue to open doors for him." Pastor Williams said they will have the official merger celebration on the second Sunday in February, which coincidentally falls on Valentine's Day. Pastor Omar L. Dykes and St. John C.M.E Church in Winston Salem will join Christ Temple to celebrate the occasion. Pastor Williams went on to say that with the new church, he wants to merge the traditional ways of the church with what the new millennial generation has to bring to the table because in a few years they will be the ones who will be leading the church. The two churches have embraced the change and look forward to bringing in new members.
