Kathleen's thoughts

2 Kings 14: 23-27 Jeoboam he reigned in Samaria for 41 years

2 Kings 14: 1-20 2 Chronicles 25: 26-28 Amaziah's death

2 Kings 14: 21-22, 15:1-4 2 chronicles 26:2 Uzziah (Azariah) becomes sole ruler.

2 Chronicles 26: 6-15 Uzziah's success

Amos 9: 11-15 Israel's restoration. In that day I will restore the fallen booth of David: I will repair its gaps restore it's ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old.
I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel.

Hosea 1: 1-2: 5 Israel rebuked. The word of the Lord that came to Hosea son of Beeri during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and of Jeroboam son of Joash, king of Israel.

he was told by the Lord to marry a promiscuous wife and have children for the whole land has been promiscuous by abandoning the Lord.
He did this and married Gomer daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son and Named him Jezreel, for in a little while I will avenge the bloodshed of Jezreel on the house of Jehu and put an end the  the kingdom of the house of Israel.
She conceived again and gave birth to a daughter and the Lord said to him call her No compassion for I will no longer have compassion on the house of Israel.
When she had finished weaning the daughter she gave birth to a son. Then the Lord said. Name him Not my People for you are not My people and I will not be your God. Yet the number of the Israelites will be like the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or counted And in the place where they were told; You are not My people, they will be called Sons of the living God.
For the day of Jezreel will be great.

Hosea 2: 6-13 God's judgement.
Hosea 2: 14-23 God's promises.
Hosea 3: 1-5 Israel restored.

I Love this... Then the Lord said to me,"Go again; show love to a woman who is loved by another man and is an adulteress, just as the Lord loves the Israelites thought they turn to other gods and love raisin cakes.
So I bought her for 15 shekels of silver and five bushels of barley. I said to her, You must live with me many days. Don't be promiscuous or belong to any man, and I will act the same way toward you:
For the Israelites must live many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, and without ephod or household idols. Afterwards, the people of Israel will return and seek the Lord their God and David their king. They will come with awe to the Lord and to His goodness in the last days.

For thought and contemplation. ..Love is patient; love is kind. Love does not envy, is not boastful, is not conceited;... bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends...: 1 Cor. 13: 4,7-8
