Wesley's Notes for Hosea 1:11


1:11 Then - This verse has both an historical and a spiritual sense; the one referring to the return out of Babylon, the other to a more glorious deliverance from a more miserable captivity. Judah - The two tribes, who adhered to the house of David. Israel - Some of the ten tribes who were incorporated with the kingdom of Judah, and so carried captive with them. But this is spiritually to be understood of the whole Israel of God. One head - Zerubbabel, who was appointed by Cyrus, yet with full approbation of the people. And so Christ is appointed by the Father, head of his church, whom believers heartily accept. Come up - Literally out of Babylon, spiritually out of captivity to sin and to Satan. Great - Good, joyous and comfortable. Of Jezreel - Israel is here called Jezreel, the seed of God. This seed is now sown in the earth, and buried under the clods; but great shall be its day, when the harvest comes. Great was the day of the church, when there were daily added to it such as should be saved.


Discussion for Hosea 1

  • Carolyn Taylor
    Hosea shows the love a husband should have for his wife and the love a wife should have for her husband. The forgiving heart and loving spirit. If we all have these two attributes in ALL marriages, we will have less divorces, especially in the church.
  • Camiah
    Hosea were really really nice with his wife and that was pleasing
  • N James
    Shows God's love for His church.He wants us to repent and turn back to Him and He will abundantly pardon, for whom the Lord loves He chastens.He is always pleading for it is not His desire that none of us should be lost.His love is an everlasting love

  • Murlean
    Hosea1 is a book of how God is the one that can change a person life, how he is a forgiving God. Also it show we don't know he God may have for so we can't point finger at who don't need who we not God.
  • Sonia
    The book of Hosea is to show how much God loves us and we must not worship no other God beside him. We must only serve the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, one God. God is a jealous God and he will do what he says he will do. I love him so much.
  • Raphael Phatael
    I thank God what was written in that book. It teaches the two main points on my side. 1. It is very bad to have Idolitary worshiping. Since it is so painful for any bad to be betryaid in the marrage for example it is how God hated the idoltary worshiping 2. It is very bad to betray your partiner in marage
