|Are you willing to learn about what we have forgotten which is of the LORD?|
|In verse 10 "I will be thy king".We know the kings and princes exercise authority one over the other and we are not to be that way according to Christ. The early Christians provided a daily ministration provided by faith, hope, and charity like John the Baptist preached. Jesus the Christ was the highest son of David and the king who appointed a a called out group eventually called the Church through the Church legally defined as "one form of government".|
|Who are the workers of iniquity?|
|Is it the people who eat the free bread of the rulers and fathers of the earth which is provided through force, fear and fealty, through covetous practices rather than pure Religion.|
|Who are the Fathers of the earth and the benefactors who exercise authority?|
|Do you live by faith, hope, and charity or have you become accustomed to living at the expense of others by force, fear, and fealty?|
|The Spirit of Assyria is the east wind which brings recompense for those who will not repent.|
|Can you be born again if the flesh and blood of Christ is not written in your heart and mind?|

1 ¶ When Ephraim spake trembling, he exalted himself in Israel; but when he offended in Baal, he died.
2 And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.
3 Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the early dew that passeth away, as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the floor, and as the smoke out of the chimney.
4 Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.
5 I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.
6 According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me.
7 Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them:
8 I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.
9 O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.
10 I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?
11 I gave thee a king in mine anger, and took him away in my wrath.
12 The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid.
13 The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children.
14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
15 Though he be fruitful among his brethren, an east wind shall come, the wind of the LORD shall come up from the wilderness, and his spring shall become dry, and his fountain shall be dried up: he shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels.
16 Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.
