Consistent Message

If you have been around the Christian community for any length of time you have probably heard someone make a statement similar to or having the implications of, “The God of the Old Testament is different than the God of the New Testament.”  Or else some form of how things were different in the Old and New Testaments, Hebrews 13:8 notwithstanding.
Have you ever heard that the God of the Old and New Testaments is different?  Thoughts at DTTB.
Hosea 6:1 – 6, seems to suggest that God’s interaction with His people is the same in both Testaments.  Look at the core of what Hosea shares here and how it relates to similar passages in the New Testament…

Hosea 6:1 – 6  New Testament
He has torn us, but He will heal us Hebrews 12:7 – 11
He has wounded us, but He will bandage us James 1:2 – 4; Romans 5:3 – 5
Let us know let us press on to know the Lord Philippians 3:7 – 15
I delight in loyalty rather than sacrifice and in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offering John 5:39 – 44

Does that seem consistent to you?
