    Hosea was a prophet, as you know. All that the Lord spoke was for the sake of Israel. It was not for "us" or anyone else. He reminded the people of their whoredom and all he had done for them. In the end, he would or was willing to draw them back. But as usual, they left him again and went "awhoring" after other providers Gods.

    Nay. This man, in his wickedness, magnifies his own name while attempting to diminish the LORD GOD: all while revealing the evil murmurings of his heart. Thus, it is written, For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

    Thank you Eunice for sharing that and thank you Leopold d for standing and believing in the Lord to restore your marriage. Nothing is impossible with God he can do miracles he hasn’t ever changed. Praise the Lord! Romans 8:28

    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.

    The scripture teaches that God's loves is not limited. when you read the scriptures the word adultery appears several time indicating that God hates adultery but in this scripture he tells Hosea to love his adulterous wife, which is not easy but as God loves us and be able to forgive our sins He expected the same to Hosea. this does not mean that we should sin but must repent and change our ways.

    This CHAPTER is a beautiful allegorical picture of Yahweh s faithfulness toward us as covenant people. Even though every one of us in times past have departed from him, sold under sin as Brother Paul proclaims, yet in His Ahavah-love for us, He loved us so dearly He sent His only begotten son into the world to be a propitiation for us. Romans 3:25, 1 John 2:2, 4:10. This fancy word means He literally bought us back after Adam s fall. Think of it. THE GREAT CREATOR HAS BECOME OUR REDEEMER. HE BOUGHT US BACK AFTER WE BETRAYED HIM FOR A LOVE OF THE WORLD, THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH, THE LUSTS OF THE EYE, AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE. PRAISE HIS DEAR SWEET NAME FOREVER. 1 JOHN 2:16

    This passage of the scripture describes how we the children of God can spiritual be sometimes and also how patient our God waits to have us back as we return in repentance to him.

    This just show God 's unfailing love towards us. At times we live a spiritually adulterous life, idolizing material things and people instead of being committed to our Maker, who loves n watches over us. Still God changes not and patiently waits for us to return. Lord remember mercy.
  • Eunice
    Am so moved and encouraged by Leopard. God wil answer your prayers.I advice you get faith filled prayer warriors to agree with you in prayer for your wife 's change of heart and return. Nothing is too hard for God. God is pleased when we stand upon HIs word and He surely answers prayers. I have a friend whose marriage was restored after 15 years of legal divorce.

    This chapter lets me know we can 't stop the will of God, what God has for me is for me We sometimes want to do our own thing in life and wind up right back where God wants us to be.

    NIV reports differently on this chapter in verse 1 from the view of KJV. NIV SEEMS TO SHOW THAT HOSEA IS TOLD TO RE-MARRY OR RECONCILE WITH HIS WIFE YET KJV SEEMS TO SHOW THAT HOSEA IS TOLD TO TAKE ON ANOTHER WIFE. COMMENT
