    Hosea chapter 2 teaches me about the love God have for humanity. if God could asked His prophet Hosea to take a whore as a wife and He himself named the children of this whore, then brethren we should not condemn anyone because my God is capable to use those we called unbelievers to glorify Himself or accomplish His prophesies. for whiles we were yet sinners Christ died for us, glory haleluya

    Verse 10: The Israelites were accountable to Jehovah God and none of the false gods they were worshipping would save them from him judgment.

    A prophecy for Israel: Hosea's life dipicted Israel's life with Yah. Israel committed whoredoms by going after the Baalims, and Yah said Lo Ammi (not my people) and He scattered them, but He says even though He scattered them their number will be as the sand of the sea ( Genesis 22:). But He will gather them again and take away baalim from their mouth and they shall call Him Ishi (My Husband).
  • Marlese
    This is a Prophecy for the people of Israel, if we read the first chapter carefully we will see this.
    the wife of whoredoms represents Israel and her whoredoms to Yah, and He Yah is telling what will happen to Israel. and He is saying that although He will do all this to Israel their number will be as the sand of the sea (for this He promised to Abraham in Genesis)
