No Gain in Sin

Hosea 12:14 Ephraim provoked Him to anger most bitterly: therefore shall He leave His blood upon him, and his reproach shall His Lord return unto him.

Praise God. Brethren Ephraim is one of the sons of Joseph and the founder of one of the twelve tribes of Israel.
The Hebrew meaning of Ephraim is Fruitful.
In verse 14” says Ephraim provoked Him to anger most bitterly. Another translation says the people of Israel 
    have bitterly provoked the Lord, 
What did they really do, to provoke God bitterly?.
When the tribe of Ephraim spoke, the people shook with fear, for that tribe was important in Israel. 
But the people of Ephraim sinned by worshiping Baal and thus sealed their destruction, they continue to sin by making silver idols,images shaped skillfully with human hands. 
“Sacrifice to these,” they cry, “and kiss the calf idols!.
This things was what provoked the Lord bitterly.
I love the Lord, before He strikes, He always brings His beloved to remembrance.
The Lord  reminded the Ephraim saying “I have been the Lord your God ever since I brought you out of Egypt. You must acknowledge no God but me, for there is no other savior. I took care of you in the wilderness, in that dry and thirsty land. But when you had eaten and were satisfied, you became proud and forgot me.
Beloved this is how some of us are, when we are in need we cry out to the Lord in humility but after He has provided, we switch immediately from Him, back to the world.
Now brethren this is what the Lord is saying to whosoever is still behaving like the Ephraim in this generation, “Now I will attack you like a lion, like a leopard that lurks along the road. Like a bear whose cubs have been taken away, I will tear out your heart. 
I will devour you like a hungry lioness and mangle you like a wild animal. “You are about to be destroyed, O Israel, O evil generation,
    yes, by Me, your only Helper. The Lord will now sentence them to death in payment for their sins.

My brethren I beseech you to quickly turn from your rebellion heart and reconcile with Christ now that it is still bright because when it’s gets darken there will be no more Grace. 
Christ is calling you now come Oh sinner come.
G❤️❤️DM❤️RNING, God Bless You And Shalom.
