"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."(Hosea 4:6)
"Forgotten Children" In most cases when this verse is referred to, it is referenced in the context of ignorance. The meaning of ignorance is to not know something, there can be many reasons for not knowing certain things. If you read the entire verse you will find out the reason for this " lack of Knowledge", is rebellion. This verse spoken by Hosea the prophet plainly says that these people are being destroyed because they rejected the knowledge that was presented to them by the man of God. The consequences of rejecting the Word of God spoken by His mouth piece are horrific. There are two things mentioned in this verse that will transpire in your life as a direct result of your walking away from the voice of God. (1) "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge"- The word destroyed means to be made dumb, to perish or to be destroyed. (2) "also forget your children" - When you as a parent reject the Voice of God in your life, you automatically set in motion a series of events that will cause your children to be spiritually dead. The worse thing that can happen to a person is to break the pattern of Blessing in your family. What will your family legacy be? Are you continuing in the faith and knowledge of Jesus or have you just walked away from God's clear voice for a more "politically correct" path? "I will also forget thy children" is a strong statement coming from the Eternal God. If, due to your rebellion, God completely forgets your children because of a set of events you set in motion, the generational curses you worked so hard to break will start all over again. In the end, you have allowed your complacency to destroy your children. Please don't just be a spectator in the Kingdom of God but a participator. Hearing and obeying the Voice of God is the best thing you will ever be able to do for your children!!
