Hosea and the Covenant Devotion of God - Part 2
Hosea’s prophecy signals an end to the northern kingdom of Israel consisting of the ten tribes that rebelled against the house of David. They were led by Jerboam son of Nebat. Now, under another king named Jereboam, God pronounces the end of the kingdom of Israel. Within 6 months Jereboam II’s death, chaos reigned in the Israel. There were three kings in less than two years. Within 14 years, Assyria conquered parts of Israel and within 34 years, it was a vassal state of Assyria.
