Nothing Â we can do that can separate us from the mercy and love of God. God's concern for our life as a whole includes the success of our marriage. The one-handed love in our personal lives may help us better understand the hurt that God experiences when man rejects his love.

However, Instead of being loyal to her forgiving and loving husband, Gomer precisely Back to his old lover. Nevertheless, Hosea was a diligent man and he mercifully tried to bring it back. The message conveyed by Hosea is also stated by the meaning of the name given to her three children. Jezreel, Lo-Ruhama, and Lo-Ami (Chapter 1).

WHO IS WISE? LET THEM REALIZE THESE THINGS. WHO IS DISCERNING? LET THEM UNDERSTAND. THE WAYS OF THE LORD ARE RIGHT; THE RIGHTEOUS WALK IN THEM, BUT THE REBELLIOUS STUMBLE IN THEM. Siapa yang bijaksana, biarlah ia memahami semuanya ini; siapa yang paham, biarlah ia mengetahui; sebab jalan-jalan TUHAN adalah lurus, dan orang benar menempuhnya,tetapi pemberontak tergelincir di situ.
