  • A disciple on Hosea 3
    Many say this chapter is about God's unfailing love for us; but THAT is not really the whole point here! The Prophet was commanded to take an adulteress; so he PURCHASED this woman, and told her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee. It was for a sign to Israel of salvation after the age of the Gentiles.

    The Lord commanded Hosea to get a wife who was a prostitute. He then had children by her but she continued in her ways and fell in love with another man. She left her husband and when this guy was done with her, as she lost her value in prostitution as she aged HE sold her back to Hosea as an abused slave. Hosea loved her and told her to stay faithful to him So he was buying back his own wife.
