Hopefully by now, you used the many options to hear the first chapter of Hosea. There was so much that could be learned from the first chapter. Such as, how the children of Israel went into whoredom by departing from their faith and worshiping false gods. The ultimate result that is a great mystery in this world is that the Gentiles Paul taught were in fact Israelites. Paul quoted Hosea 1:10 that states “Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.”
Romans 9:24 “Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?” Verse 25: “As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.” Verse 26: “And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.”
Hosea shows this generation that removing whoredom is possible through repentance in Christ. As Hosea chapter 2 builds on the controversial way the Heavenly Father showed the sin of Israel. Deuteronomy 23:17 “There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.” As we uploaded another chapter on the Radio Station is only fit we make Hosea 2 available as a podcast. Remember all audio becomes available first on the radio.
