In Hosea 10, we see the retribution of Israel's sin. In verse 1, it starts off by saying Israel is a luxuriant vine. He produces fruit only for himself; the more his fruit the more altars he built. Simply stating the people of Israel are charged with gross corruptions in the worship of God and are threatened with the destruction of their images and altars ( V1,2,5,6 and 8). As Hosea goes on in the next few verses, they are being charged with all kinds of things; sins of their fathers and judgments. They are earnestly invited to repent and reform and are threatened with ruin if they do not (v12-15).
In Psalms, we see God’s blessing on his people as their one great necessity and privilege is spoken of here. We are taught that builders of houses and city systems, fortunes, empires and churches all labor in vain without the Lord, but under divine favor, they enjoy perfect rest.
In Jude, we see this epistle is addressed to all believers in the gospel. Its design appears to be to guard believers against the false teachers who had begun to creep into the Christian church, They tried to scatter dangerous tenets by attempting to lower all Christianity into a merely nominal belief and outward profession of the gospel. Having thus denied the obligations of personal holiness, they taught their disciples to live in sinful courses, at the same time flattering them with the hope of eternal life. The vile character of these seducers is shown, and their sentence is denounced and the epistle concludes with warnings, admonitions, and counsels to believers.
