About Pursued by Love Series
Love is a force that is not stoppable or predictable. Love is unquenchable. The only thing you can do to Love is…miss it.
Hosea 1:3-4 NASB
Gomer…conceived and bore him a son. And the Lord said to him, “Name him Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will punish the house of Jehu for the bloodshed of Jezreel, and I will put an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel.”
Jezreel means “God sows.” We may choose to leave God but He chooses our consequences. Never must we think that to have known God and then leave Him takes place without terrible results. We sow the seed of Adamic playing-god but Almighty sows His own seed for our reaping.
Israel, having known God in the Highest, would suffer the consequences of independence and the shedding of innocent blood.
