“For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter 1:21 (ESV)
There is no doubt that God has always had the right to transmit their truths to humans, but especially those who have been called to participants of His Kingdom. It is very interesting that humans are only interested and focused so often on their own reasoning, God has had such patience that always He has used His prophets to communicate which will be His divine purposes, be those for blessings or for judgments, “Besides, the eternal God of Israel isn't a human being. He doesn't tell lies or change his mind." 1 Samuel 15:29 (CEV) and what He speak will be fulfilled no matter what.
However, always it have to be careful that the interpretation of each of the prophecies has to be guaranteed by the scriptures, if the prophecy fail to be endorsed, and supported by the scriptures this shall be taken as false.
Hindson and Yates in their Book the Essence of the Old Testament A Survey states the following:”Altogether the minor prophets are a collection of the messages of 12 individual prophets to Israel and Judah that serve both as predictions of judgment and as promises of hope for the future.

The prophets were sensitive to the voice of the Spirit of God and when the people of Israel began to deviate in idolatry God has to reveal to His prophets in this case the prophet Hosea, the unclean and detestable it was for God that his people go after gods, “Selfish priests had produce a pleasure-seeking people who turned to the worship of false gods and the practice of abhorrent Canaanite fertility rites as a mean as a mean of satisfying their sinful lusts.” (Ed Hindson & Gary Yates, 2012, p. 374)
The result of this attitude was that God has to deal with them by sending them not only natural but also spiritual enemies, as can be seen in the prophecy of Hosea when he states: “For a spirit of whoredom has led them astray, and they have left their God to play the whore.” Hosea 4:12 (ESV) However, as it is seen that in these scriptures, how abominable it was, and still is for God that his people follow other gods.
