Reaping The Whirlwind

The Bible's "reap what you sow" applies directly to salvation (see also The Great Tribulation to understand how "tribulation" is about a harvest), as used in this chapter of Hosea (i.e. 8:7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind"), and as used much later, for example by the apostle Paul (see Paul's Ministry) e.g. "6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not" (Galatians 6:7-9 KJV).

"For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind"

All of the ancient principles of right and wrong hold true for today as much as long ago. Why? Because humans have not changed - nor has God's eternal Law which determines what is truly right or wrong.

The Ten Commandments

"8:1 Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle [see also Eagles] against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant [see Why A New Covenant?], and trespassed against my law. 8:2 Israel shall cry unto me, My God, we know thee. 8:3 Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him. 8:4 They have set up kings, but not by me [see I Did It My Way]: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off. 8:5 Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency? 8:6 For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.

8:7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up. 8:8 Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure. 8:9 For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers. 8:10 Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes.

8:11 Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin. 8:12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing. 8:13 They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; but the LORD accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt. 8:14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof." (Hosea 8:1-14 KJV)
