Hosea 7 - AMP

2 But they do not consider and say to their minds and hearts that I remember all their wickedness. Now their own doings surround and entangle them; they are before My face. 3 They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies. 4 They are all adulterers; their passion smolders like heat of an oven when the baker ceases to stir the fire from the kneading of the dough until it is leavened. 5 On the day of our king the princes made themselves and him sick with the heat of wine; stretched out his hand with scoffers and lawless men. 6 For they have made ready their heart, and their mind burns like an oven while they lie in wait. Their anger smolders all night; in the morning it blazes forth as a flaming fire. 7 They are all hot as an oven and devour their judges; all their kings are fallen; there is none among them who calls to Me. 8 Ephraim mixes himself among the peoples ; Ephraim is a cake not turned. 9 Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knows it not; yes, gray hairs are sprinkled here and there upon him, and he does not know it. 10 And the pride of Israel testifies against him and to his face. But they do not return to the Lord their God, nor seek nor inquire of nor require Him in spite of all this. 11 Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart or understanding; they call to Egypt; they go to Assyria. 12 As they go, I will spread My net over them; I will bring them down like birds of the heavens. I will chastise them according to the announcement to their congregation . 13 Woe to them, for they have wandered from Me! Destruction to them, because they have rebelled and trespassed against Me! Though I would redeem them, yet they have spoken lies against Me. 14 They do not cry to Me from their heart, but they wail upon their beds; they gash and distress and assemble themselves for grain and new wine; they rebel against Me. 15 Although I have chastened them and trained and strengthened their arms, yet they think and devise evil against Me. 16 They turn back, shift, or change, but not upwards . They are like a deceitful bow; their princes shall fall by the sword for the insolence and rage of their tongue. This shall be their derision and scorning in the land of Egypt.

Summary: Hosea charged Israel with being “a cake not turned” or “half-baked". They were half-hearted towards God. Like Israel, many of today’s professed believers have followed the same pattern of incomplete discipleship.

God Knows When You’re Done
Shared by: Gregory Thomas on Jan, 2011
Summary: Instead of Epraim depending on God for stability He formed alliances with the people instead of him being a shepherd he became as sheep. The "cake not turned" was burnt on one side and raw on the other. A metaphor for just how mixed up their lives were.
