A Personal Note from Marilyn Cavar
Welcome to our web page. . .
As you read further you will come to see that Hosea’s Cry is filled with revelation from God and His Word, about the great and profound mystery in the joining of a husband and his wife and how it relates to the church and the bride of Christ and how the two will become “one flesh” and the secrets of His Covenant will be revealed to those who love God more than they love themselves. This honours the first Commandment, by putting God first!!!
Ephesianians 5:31-33 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, an she respects her husband.
Hosea’s Cry is also laced with good teachings we’ve received over the years from godly men and women who have also come to know by revelation from God what entering into a “Covenant with God” really means and how it effects your “Marriage”.
This website was given birth from hearts made ready by the Holy Spirit for such a time as this. Once a week for well over ten years now we at Hosea’s Cry have gathered together to honour God, and obey His commandments by helping others become worthy disciples of His so they too can spread the good news about Jesus and what He did on the cross for all of mankind, and also teach about His resurrection power that He is able to not only save but restore all things back to His pristine order again because He is God, and there is none like Him.
John 7:16-18 So Jesus answered them, “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. If anyone’s will is to do God’s will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority. The one who speaks on his own authority seeks his own glory; but the one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and in him there is no falsehood.
We saw our marriages were under attack like never before; and we realized that our children as well as the body of Christ were having to pay such a heavy price because we who call ourselves Christians, who say we love God are somehow deceived into agreeing with Satan’s diabolical scheme to destroy the image of God to our children and to the church by doing what seems right in our own eyes, also by what many leaders are tolerating in our church gatherings today that is tad amount to open rebellion to the commandments of God.
Jeremiah 6:13-15 For from the least to the greatest of them, everyone is greedy for unjust gain; and from prophet to priest, everyone deals falsely. They have healed the wound of my people lightly, saying ‘Peace, Peace’ when there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed; they did not know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; at the time I punish them, they shall be overthrown”
Consider the fact that it was God who created marriage to be a ‘Holy and sacred union’ set apart for His Kingdom pleasure and purpose, we then shouldn’t be surprised that Satan would want to take down as many of our families as he could right out of the running! Can’t we see we are letting Satan get away with this by all the divorcing and re-marring that’s going on in the body of Christ today; and we don’t even blush while we are do this.
Could this be what Revelation 2:18-29 is referring too, the tolerating of that Jezebel spirit?
We have learned that Marriage was commissioned by God to grow us up, to make disciples of us, by the Holy Spirit teaching us how to love one another by learning through our many mistakes the value of humility, mercy, and grace that we show towards one another. This is God’s way of doing things, not ours. God’s way is for us to protect His image to our children so they will grow up knowing of God’s unconditional love towards them by the way we model Jesus to them. We are His family we belong to Him not to ourselves. Our job as parents is to reflect God’s unfailing love, His faithfulness, and merciful chastisement towards them when they mess up, so that they could bring that image to life into the next generation, but sadly many of us have fallen far short of this in that we’ve been reflecting the world’s standards of love to them instead. An ‘eye for an eye’ along with the many conditions we attach for that to receive our affections and love.
We woke up to this fact too late. All God wants is for us to learn how to love one another unconditionally as He loves us so His kingdom could be established here on earth as it is in heaven. God wants us to forgive one another as we want to be forgiven, so that He can forgive us. He wants us to lay down our lives for one another like Jesus did for us while we were sinning. This kind of love will open up eyes and hearts around us to come to know HIM, to know His character and His nature through us. The lost would want to come and know this God and His kind of love for themselves and come asking us about it. We are the people of God and we are to be known by this kind of love.
John 13:34 ” A new commandment I give you, that you love one another: Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
This kind of Love is impossible to do on our own, but once we give the Holy Spirit our willing hearts for a complete makeover it’s His job to change us, we just need to be willing. In delighting ourselves in Him and His word and wisdom we will not only want to love like He does, but He will gladly give us the desire’s of our hearts because they now line up with the Father’s heart for our families.
If God’s people were loving one another like He loves us, then everyone would get to see God’s will manifest on earth as it is in heaven. In loving God above all else, we would gain revelation of who He is, and who we really are in Him, and then as His sons and daughters we would do even greater works than Yeshua did because His loving power would flow freely through all of our hearts in unconditionally love towards even our enemies. Apparently everything depends on this.
Matthew 5:43; ” You have heard it was said, ” You shall love your neighbour and hate your enemy, But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be true children of your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 22:37-38; ” You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the Prophets”
Acts 2:16-21; Peter’s sermon at Pentecost, God promises to pour out His Spirit on all flesh, this is what was uttered through the Prophet Joel read Joel 2:28 in your bible.
Philippians 3:14-21, Paul says, (14) I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way. . . . (18) For many, of whom I have often told and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies to the cross of Christ. (19) Their end is destruction, their God is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. . please read on in your bible to the end of this chapter about where our citizenship really is.
It was Jesus who said we are to emulate Him and this kind of love even to our enemies, to those who have dealt treacherously with us. So we asked ourselves how can we say we love God with all our hearts, then go look for a loop hole to get out of our ‘for better or for worse, until death do us part marriages?’ . . . .Duh!!!
Matthew 13: 11-13 And Jesus answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the Kingdom, but to them it has not been given. For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.”
Wouldn’t it be better to have our relationship restored by God though our obedience to His command to not take apart what He put together for His glory and our children’s well being no matter what the cost is to ourselves?
Now don’t go get us wrong, we’re not condemning anyone who got out of a bad marriage, because we too have gone through a divorce. We’re just sharing what the Lord has revealed to us personally and individually after we cried out to Him from broken and contrite hearts asking Him to have mercy on us and come rescue us, and our whole family because we realized too late we blew it! We didn’t want the divorce in the first place.
That’s when the Lord began revealing the Secrets of His Blood Covenant to us.
If we were willing to uphold the covenant vows we made to Him despite the divorce that He knew we really didn’t want or seek in the first place, and become eunuchs for the sake of His Kingdom He would back us up!
He revealed to us that divorce doesn’t make us single, we are still married in His eye’s that is why it is adultery when you marry someone else. He divorced Israel because Moses made a law due to the hardening of their hearts toward God and His ways. But this divorce has no power over God who is able to soften the hardest of hearts, it only had the power to break their intimacy with God. God says He is still married to Israel, that He is still her husband. He is standing on His Covenant promises He made to Israel to restore her back to Him once she repents of her wicked ways and she looks upon Her bother the one she pierced is her Messiah.
We realized God had been listening and heard the vows we said to each other when we got married, when we vowed to love one another “until death do we part!” We also knew God hates divorce because of the violence that goes on in the ripping and tearing that we do to the one-flesh heart that God puts together, this only provokes our children to wrath against us, and God. Much blood is spilt on the inside of all our broken hearts through this ripping and tearing that we do to one another during a divorce. The wounds go real deep and take a long time to heal. But God is God and is able to restore any damage we do if we let Him,
because we have no power of our own to take apart a covenant that God puts together until death that’s why He calls it adultery when we try to save ourselves by marriage to someone else at the expense of our children and His kingdom. All God needs is just one willing to stand and fight the good fight, to forgiven from a truly repentant heart so He can heal what we have torn apart. He will do it not only for our children’s sake but for His Kingdom sake!!!!
God is able to bring the prodigal to their senses so he or she will want to come home.
Matthew 19:1-12 ” Not everyone can receive this saying, but only to those to whom it is given. . . . There are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuch for the sake of the Kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.”
Remember we are only forgiven as we forgive those who have sinned against us. Did you notice that in the next verse Jesus laid his hands on the children and blessed them right after He said all this. I wonder if these children were wounded by parents who were not able to forgive one another and maybe even wished they had never married who they married.
(Food for thought)
We began to understand divorce only has the power to brake our intimacy we had with our spouse, due to the hardening of our hearts towards one another; but our hard hearts can be made soft again through repentance, and can be restored back to wholeness again through God’s grace and mercy, once we learn to forgive one another. All God needs is just one of the covenant pair, the one who is willing to go the distance He requires so He can begin the work to make us brand new again. We also realized that we just didn’t have any power to break the Blood Covenant promises that God made to us, therefore by us refusing to repent of our wicked ways we were by default giving ourselves over to Satan’s plans, instead of God’s plans, with our own free will. Satan blinds us to that fact on purpose.
It’s ‘Strife’ and the taking on an ‘Offense’ that opens this door giving Satan a foothold to come stomping right on in and trample all over our household. God wants us to kick the devil out, close that door on Strife and Offense with a resounding slam and let God have His way instead!!!
In a Blood Covenant with God we are expected to willing lay down our lives for God’s glory to be manifested in ours. Jesus actually bled out His life’s blood for the Father’s glory to manifest through Him. We may not lose any actual blood in the laying down of our lives, but some of us may eventually have to by the way the world is heading. The apostles modeled this in the laying down of their lives so people could see Christ in them.
Hosea, is one of those ancient prophets called by God to set this example. He willingly laid down his life so God would get the glory for his restored marriage to his adulterous wife, Gomer. This was done to reflect God’s desire for Israel who was acting like Gomer. He not only wanted to restore Gomer back to holiness, but restore Hosea’s whole family and all of Israel back to Himself. God promised Israel restoration once they repented and turned back to Him. Hosea’s life makes it very clear what God expects from all of us, when we put God first. We humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways and keep our Sacred Vows we make to God because it opens the door for God to come in and show off not only to our children, but to others who need to believe again in a powerful, awesome, wonderful All Mighty God!!!
All God needs is for us to believe that He is able!!! to restore all things back to Himself, especially those things Satan came to kill, steal, and destroy, like our covenant understanding, but we need to be willing and available vessels for God to use because He is not a bully. This is something we get to choose to do because we love God and His Ways, because they are so much higher, and more effective than our ineffective human ways.
We here at Hosea’s Cry have made our decision and have said ‘Yes’ to the cross, no longer an enemy to it, we decided to stand on our Covenant promises we made to God and to our Covenant mates! We believe God is able to restore all things and we willing picked up our crosses and are following after Him!!! He is our God there is none like Him.
Once the people in our little group found out we all had this one heart’s desire in common to love God with our whole hearts, and see His glory manifest in our lives, we now understood why God brought our little group together.
We are affiliated now with other groups all over the world with this same heart’s desire to turn the hearts of the father’s and mother’s back to their children purely out of our love for God so He could break this curse off our land once and for all.
My name is Marilyn Cavar and I’ve opened my home to a small group of Standers, who are Standing as living stones in that breach in the Covenant wall that surrounds the marriage bed, we are fighting for all families everywhere.
I’m a graduate of the Confederation College Social Worker Program and have received the Basic, and Advanced Training through the Elijah House in Spokane, Washington in 1994; and in 1995 interned in the Ministry of Prayer Counseling at Elijah House in Post Falls Idaho. I’ve also taken leadership training courses through the local church, and through Covenant Keepers Inc. in Tulsa, Oklahoma USA.
But I count this all dung, for it’s the Lord’s Kingdom power and wisdom that I seek for I have no power or wisdom of my own!
I’m the mother of seven beautiful adult children, and grandmother to 13 (so far) and now a great-grandmother to 2 beautiful great grandchildren, they are all really smart grandchildren, you have my word on this.
Life experience has taught us here at Hosea’s Cry to trust in God with all our might, and not to lean on our own understanding.
My marriage came under attack many years ago, shortly after that I made my decision to stand against Satan’s plans for my family and I’ve continued to stand believing God is able to restore all things for His glory. I know that I know that nothing is impossible for my God. He came to redeem the lost, and we were lost, but now today all my children and grandchildren believe in God and are being saved.
I was blessed on seeing God’s wonderful working power manifest when He brought all my seven wayward adult children into His Kingdom ‘suddenly’ right before my eyes. The Holy Spirit had been working on their hearts individually behind the scene without me or each other knowing it, and then the Lord said,
“Look! and see, I’ve done a new thing.”
I was in AWE of the greatness of my God’s power, and His love for us. I know now first hand that I have nothing to fear because God is on my side, what can man do to me!
My children and grandchildren are now praying for their father, and grandfather’s salvation. We are looking to see the promises of God come to pass, when whole families are being restored to the fullness there of. . .”to the fullness there of.”
We’ve come to believe that God can make a way where there seems to be no way!!!
Nehemiah 4:14 “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, (sisters) your sons and your daughters, your wives (husbands) and your homes”
Hosea’s Cry website was created to provide truth for those seeking Truth, and to bring hope to wounded children everywhere who are wondering where God is in all this!
He is right Here!
Planning another Sting on Satan!!!
