6:2 After two days - After some short time of suffering, God will shew us his favour, and revive our dead state. Revive us - Though we were as dead men, buried in our miseries, yet our merciful God will quicken us. Live - Flourish in peace, wealth, and joy; in righteousness and safety. In his sight - The eye of our God being upon us for good.


Discussion for Hosea 6:2

  • Craig Calef for verse 2
    After two prophetic "days " 2,000 years from the time Jesus revealed himself to Israel in 32 A.D. He will return to earth in the Second Coming exactly in 2032 A.D. Hosea 6 2 . It takes a little insight to see this HIDDEN PROPHECY. Therefore time is quickly running out the Antichrist and worldwide tribulation and Babylon will soon be upon us. I believe the Church will be here to guide the unsaved world until a mid trib rapture. The prophetic clock in ticking down very quickly, so get ready and be faithful.
  • Pastor Greggory for verse 2
    Jesus stated he would raise up the temple (his body which is the church) in three days after it had been destroyed...

    There were a few gentleman that came out to do a video in the late 70's that correlated the Hosea prophecy with that of Jesus...

    Another interesting note is when Jesus told the disciples to go down into the town and find a man bearing a pitcher of water, follow him into the house and into the upper chamber and I will be there amongst you... Is this a reference to the age of Aquarius? which is 2 thousand years after the resurrection of our King?

    These were just some interesting thoughts to contemplate...
  • No doubt Hos 6:2 is a description of the Second Coming after two prophetic "days" (2,000 years) from the Lord's death, 32 A.D. (about 19 years away: 32 + 2,000 = 2032.) It will be in the "Day of the Lord" (Obadiah 15, Joel 3:14), the end of the Great Trib, as described in Zechariah. There will be nuclear war and Armageddon (Zech 13:9, 14:2, 12) and the great "mountain" Antichrist slain (4:7). AMEN!
  • Robert Toombs for verse 2
    I believe Vs 2 is a prophecy of Christ's 2nd advent . After 2000 years he will return and in the 1000 year rule on Earth , we will be his Kings & Preist and rule with him until the White Throne Judgement Day .
