In my opinion, God expressed the intent indicated in Hosea 2:11 because Israel had perverted the occasions mentioned in the verse by either regarding them merely as times for mirth and celebration, rather than for sincere reflection and communion with God; associating them with the worship of entities other than God (such as heavenly bodies); or devising holidays or feasts of their own creation, rather than adhering to the specific dates and meanings or purposes of the observances that God Himself had indicated in the Law given to Moses.
