Part 5 in the series "The Major Message from the Minor Prophets" given by Dr. David O. Dykes, Pastor, Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas
Hosea (multiple), David Dykes, 11/04/2012, 58:50
Hosea's marriage to Gomer was a living parable of God's relationship with Israel and with any nation that wanders from Him. Hosea is preaching came from his own personal experience of love, pain, and redemption. He told the Israelites that, like an unfaithful wife, they were guilty of spiritual adultery. Hosea could say with passion and honesty, "I know how God feels, because I felt the same way. You have broken the heart of God who loves you!"
