“And in that day, declares the LORD, you will call me ‘My Husband,’ and no longer will you call me ‘My Baal.’ (Hosea 2:16)
Notice how Yahweh is saying that is was known as Baal, Doesn't this tell you people were worshiping him as Baal? No wonder Matthew said Jesus and his family went to offer to Baal
So Joseph got up and took the Child and His mother while it was still night, and left for Egypt. 15He remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: "OUT OF EGYPT I CALLED MY SON."
The above is a prophecy which Matthew claimed was fulfilled, taken from the Old Testament collection book of Hosea. Let's read this fulfilled passage :
"When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.
Seems like a straight forward prophecy, but if the NT author claims this is a true fulfilment of jesus then Hosea is telling us an epical story of what happened during that childhood of jesus. Let's carry on reading the next verse as to get more deep into this story :
But the more I called to him, the farther he moved from me, offering sacrifices to the images of Baal and burning incense to idols. (Hosea 11:2)
Did you catch the joke Matthew gave half of Hosea he didn't include that Jesus and his family went to offer sacrifices to Baal. We can conclude Yahweh is Baal an idol pagans worship. "The occurrence of Baal in the proper names of families of patriots like Saul, David, Jonathan, Joash (the father of Jerubbaal), and indeed merely such a name as Bealiah, ‘Jehovah is Baal’ (1 Chronicles 12:5)"
Here comes the sucker punch! Below we shall show from the Hebrew text that Yahweh called himself Baal Explicitly!
Indeed, your husband is your Maker-- His name is Yahweh of Hosts-- and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; He is called the God of all the earth. (Isaiah 54:5)
Notice from the above verse Yahweh is Undeniably calling himself the Husband, interestingly the Hebrew text says בָּעַל Baal so the text should read like this :
Indeed, your Baal is your Maker-- His name is Yahweh of Hosts-- and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; He is called the God of all the earth. (Isaiah 54:5)
There you have it Yahweh is Baal who the pagans worshipped through Idols. Even his alleged son acknowledged it which Matthew tried to hide but got caught out.
