The Baptist Bible.

Lord, no comes to you under the direction of Elder Lucero Bradley Junior will and the subtle share Bradley Junior inviting you to stay tuned in front of the message of God's sovereign grace and will be in and will and will contact each review, who have taken time recently to write. Let us know the tradition to the program. We do need to hear from.

It was a regular basis to keep going. In fact, this is a five Sunday month, which means that our expenses are particularly great trophy can help us at this time will be very thankful for. You can go to our website to make a donation there at Baptist Bible our dock or our address is Baptist Bible power box 17/37, Cincinnati, OH 45217 the Lord willing. This coming Thursday evening, June 3 through Sunday I will be in a meeting with Grace primitive Baptist Church Pearl, Mississippi River Andrew Huffman and I are the speakers of the David piles the past. Today we continue our message entitled the father's love from Hosea chapter 11 beginning the first verse when Israel was a child.

Then I loved him and called my son out of Egypt as they call them so they went from them. They sacrifice him to bail him and burned incense to graven images.

I taught you frame also to go taking them bother our but they knew not that I keel them. I grew them with cords of a man with bands of love and wish to them as they did take off the yoke on their jaws and I laid meet upon them. So first, in looking at this passage we have been remembering the great mercy that God bestowed upon his people and we come to that portion today where he called them out, of Egypt, the chosen sons were not left in bondage. In this verse is first verse of the passage we have something beautiful when Israel was a child, I loved it and called my son out of Egypt and get to the next verse, and frankly admit I thought about skipping. I thought we could come back to another time could be just one message but were talking about nothing but God's love and God's grace because the bench pressing scenes in this book expressed through some of the darkness and drudgery. And yet we've always been able to find verse here there lift spirits and encourage us to believe that there is grace in the midst of all of the failings of townspeople we see here a sad departure. They sacrifice to you at the beautiful description of grace and mercy I think should serve God with thankful hearts of people chosen the people delivered the complex. The people favored about all the peoples of the surf surely with blue father, God honoring way.

The verse describes their fate. Maybe we can just bask in the warmth of the writers of God's love is a later time, but by the direction of the Holy Spirit who inspired the writing of the passage which means debate.

So after viewing God's love and God's grace and God's faithfulness we have to face facts. It says it turned even from the message of the prophets, Moses was described as a prophet Moses spoke to the people and pleaded with them in exotic name and yet they resisted Christmas and in later times when The prophets on the same pace and I brought them early. They spoke to you my message and your heart was hard and you resisted it and you turned aside and you worship other, where Paul people so recently.

Last, turn aside and worship false, but we have to stop and consider the failure of any times after hearing the gospel message being reminded of the grace of God, the love of God, you have failed to show your gratitude. You might be lifted up to the moment when the message of Christ was playing but you left the assembly saints what to be overwhelmed by the cares of life. Intrigued by that which the world had made its some the things that attracted to you made perhaps in title material wealth out of seeking some prominent place some position, some place where you would be recognize you desired it became more involved in entertainments of the world and you were in expressing daily all that you said all that you did your gratitude for God, when even professing love for the sake of being willing to say yes I love Jesus Savior, but still you have pursued the attractions and pleasures of the world first John chapter 1 verse 15 says love not the world needs of the things that are in the world, and even guilty when you are set back discourages up all when you see the course taken. How could they possibly fails, but learn the practical patient.

Look at your own life for a long search, like trying to make me to know what's with me to see the hypocrisies help me to see the Pratt helping to save the world, the spirit that sometimes possesses Lord technology to confess it and give me grace to turn from. So after first seeing that we are to remember great mercy. We see a sad departure, but then also gentle teacher.

I taught Ephraim to go taking them bother our he talked them to go. Just as a father or mother would teach the child to walk. I'm sure we all can get that picture in her mind. Here's this little child that finally reached the place that can be made for the child to walk and so they take the child denies's and they gently as he attempts to make a step further to turn loose of one hand and then the other child stumbles and falls down this father who is going to teach his child to walk is going to be very patient immediately reprimand the child when he stumbles to pick it back up and hold her hand. He's patient is guiding his teaching how to go and that's what the Lord said he did with even with Israel with his people taking them bother her arms to go as a father teach his child to walk that they were indeed very childish. They were full of fears and complaints. Instead of taking encourage to remember what God had done for the walking always with absolute confidence in him, knowing that no matter what might come. No matter how fierce the enemy might be all would be well because God was there God that he was their father.

He was guiding them he was teaching them how to go though often feared, they often complain, particularly when they came into the wilderness. All likes had just had the onions in the leak of the garlic we get back. Can you imagine they were crying out they wanted to be delivered now the deliverances, they are thinking about the dainties with the back in the land of each. They were grown-up children. One thing to be patient with a little child would learn to walk. But when people are 60 years old and they're still like little children. That's another problem. So God selected Moses who was described as being the meekest of all me it would take a man with a meek temperament to put up with those big, they complain about everything God's gracious to them as slaves. They didn't have to make many decisions and decisions were made for their masters told them what they were to do their masters laid down the rules laid out the activities for the day. They didn't have to think, but now as little children there maturing there to grow and God is teaching them, taking them arms and teaching them in their wilderness wanderings. The talk of the greatness of his power, when he set the plagues on the Egyptians. I could never have imagined what God would do to bring one after another the plagues came the likes the flyers for all the disease in cattle. The darkness ultimately death. The first four there was safety for those in Israel. Good kept up the Lamb for 14 days, it might be proven to be without spot without blemish, then Gen X blood in spite of the blood upon the doorpost so that with the death Angel pass through. He said I will pass over you.

But Egypt firstborn and everything, even among the animals that was death. Egypt was devastated.

The whole link should have been affected. The river then turned the blood on site content displayed. These are my people, and I'm bringing them out, and whatever takes I'm going to deliver them and then as they leave to start their journey to the Red Sea.

You would think that having seen God's power in the 10 plagues that my faith and whatnot do something quick, trusting heart, though not these full-grown babies all what happened to be destroyed.

But God said Moses Scripture and the waters part the waters of the sea will consider them to travel upon.

They come across the side and they didn't even get the feet and say were fearful when they heard the horses hoof's leading, guiding those chariots and they were fearful put going to be the outcome of the soldiers would catch up with them but what did happen, they stood on the other bank host when to the place they had access to safely travel.

Upon together and drown the harm in the previous praised on the horse and his rider dethroning the lesson display of think Shirley Shirley they've been told to go talk to walk the mortgage held them up with arms and now that Ricky to be to protect the land have water all the parish out here the lewdness we don't have water was not able to take care that he brought water out of wouldn't be the most likely place you think maybe of God's will bring water heating bring a spring upon the ground, demonstrating the fact it was his power that produced it. Now I say were hungry all the straight poster people in the wilderness, which will surely starve no problem God that much like the application.

If you're a child of God. If you by faith in Jesus Christ and you trusting you your part of his family.

You been adopted into a spam cod has provided for you and Karen for you in so many ways you look back over your life and you can recall those special instances those times when you may have been those times when you were full of doubt when those times when you wondered what happened next, go to survive, to get through this trouble to put bread on the table.

All of these things may have trouble you are here today because of testimony God has cared or how can you ever in our weakness.

We so easily trim which will easily forget once more for fear, may we learn that the God who has provided for us thus far will go with us all the way providing our need. He was teaching them to depend upon him, but they were slow learners by we learn more quickly by we understand that when he is leading us is teaching us to walk is compassionate with us when we stumbled he sometimes is simply teaching us in our weakness because we can get a little independent sometimes so I think I can handle the situation. I think I can figure it out. We depend on our own wisdom on our own strength in the Lord as the leaders in the past reminded week but I think I'm strong. That's when really we got rid of her downfall, but when I we, strong why because I want to find my strength in Jesus Christ.

Trust how often you stumbled failed to keep resolutions that you made failed to the use of your time. The hymn writer said much of my time has run to waste bus will that we have good intentions, we make these promises we say Lord I'm better I'm going to spend more time in your word and spend more time in prayer. I'm going to walk more closely with you to get distracted.

The television for the smart phone or some other thing out there consumed your interest in little time spent in his word, but he picked you up when you fall in was to not say he has been patient with you that he has not rewarded us according to our iniquities.

But by his grace.

He has cared for us insisting that it said they knew not that high heeled.

I promised if they would obey him that he would give them special care Exodus chapter 15 verse 26 says I am the Lord that he and he said if you walk obediently.

None of the diseases that plague the Egyptians will come upon you, but he says they knew not that I protected them and bless them a favor them and they knew it not. Sometimes they obviously recognize they had been favored. They knew that they had prospered. They knew that there were blessing, but they did not acknowledge the source, the giver of the blessing they did not acknowledge the pain from God if you faltered in that area. Sometimes God has been gracious and good to you beyond your expectations. But instead of immediately giving thanks and credit how a student have been a great planner. I put a hard worker want to take a little of the Christ old let us recognize that when he has held us up my arms when he has healed us when he has guided us and told us that we want to acknowledge that he is the giver of every good and perfect and sometimes the Lord has held us up with arms and we didn't even know he was doing that I'm anything you can look back upon the past and you can recount those experiences those special days. Those times that you say yes there is a place that God intervened in my life. Here's a place that God blessed me and sustainably there many times he held you up. You didn't even know it. It wasn't a matter of ingratitude. It was just you were unaware of all of the providential unfolding's of the God of heaven just didn't know the dangers that were around you and how God protected you insisting knew not that I healed them. May we be faithful very quick at all times to recognize when the Lord has held us up on the Lord has healed us others from our physical and he wants our spiritual trouble when he has healed us. Let us acknowledge he's the great physician.

We want to thank him for I want to praise him continually for his goodness and said he removed the yoke and for another example of compassion work animal was given relief as the yoke was removed and then the hungry animal friend just so many different ways in which God's love, mercy and compassion are depicted forests in this book he removed from us the yoke of guilt and the bondage of legalism and says take my yoke upon you.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light and money. Remove the yoke he fed them of the Lord has removed from Department of human he feeds us back to chapter 20 the elders of the church were told to feed the flock of God which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, feeding how the flock will be fed if you hunger and thirst after righteousness. If your soul is hungry you desire to be fed desire to be thanked gospel truth. You want to hear about Jesus Christ. His perfect life, his sacrificial day of his glorious resurrection. You want to hear about him as the friend sent you want to hear about him who is promised never to leave us or forsake you.

Want to hear about his amazing grace. You don't get tired of hearing it is a tell me more. I want to know more. I want to understand it better. I want to rejoice in it continued. You want to be. This is when Israel was a child I loved how great is his grace all glory to be given to his name.

Nothing attractive about this band of people.

But God said I love you and I called my son out of Egypt.

In heaven, all the praise is going to go to the Lamb slain Howard were the flower slain and has redeemed us to God on our precious blood all over he goes to his name because he chose his people.

He redeemed them. He called them and they take no credit to themselves. You were dead in sin, but he gave you life you were blind, but he opened your you will feel safe, but he wants to do a loss lucky in there going to be reason for saying hallelujah give him all the glory and the praise about about several came to him indeed you did but you came because he is painted but you repented of repentance is the faith, all praise and glory goes to his essay he loved me.

He died for me.

He paid the price of redemption price for the wonderful expression you through was a child.

God says I love you and how great is that love and grace displayed in your life if you want to use a believer in Jesus Christ. You know the cause of his grace to say you had nothing to contribute.

Because of the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ at Calvary. We look forward to that great day that you will be at home with the Lord for help.
