Returning to our series on spiritual warfare, we examine the work of demons (or unclean spirits) in the Bible. Where did they come from? What powers do they have? And how may they be connected to the “gods” of the nations?
We have 4 stories intertwined in Hosea 2: Hosea and Gomer, Achan’s sin at Jericho, the Exodus, and God’s relationship to Israel. But the 5th story in this text is yours. It’s what this text is telling you about how you have treated God and what He has done in response.
