Hosea 10:13 Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.
Satan offered up a lie and Eve did eat and gave to Adam and he did eat. Satan’s offer was a lie, a sin offer. Here in Hosea we see the Word of the Lord about eating the fruit of lies. It is the curse that falls upon us all. For every curse there is a cure.
Matthew 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
Eating of the body of Christ, the sacrifice that made atonement for all sin offerings, is the cure for that curse. It is no surprise that sin offering began with eating and the cure came in the same manner.
We all look at sin in different ways, see it as unavoidable, praise God for Christ our atoning sacrifice. Some of us sin knowingly, know we have a savior that is understanding. So I offer up this thought and see if it does not change your mind about God’s plea for us to be holy.
Every sin you sin is a sin offering to Satan. It pleases Satan.
Would thinking that change your attitude about sin?
You might not agree with me and that is fine. I am not asking anyone to believe me. I would offer up this thought however. If you knew something tasted bad would you eat it?
Jeremiah 24:2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
Don’t eat the naughty figs.
