The book of Hosea begins the final group of books in the Old Testament. These twelve books call the Minor Prophets may actually been combined into one book in ancient times called the Book of the Prophets. It was to these and the four Major Prophets that the Lord Jesus Himself refer to in Luke 24:44, “And He said to them, These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all the things written in the law of Moses and the Prophets and Psalms concerning Me must be fulfilled.” Hosea, like all of the Minor Prophets is a book that is full of the revelation of Christ. Particularly, Hosea also reveals that it is God’s deep longing to have a love relationship as a husband to a wife with His people.

Have you ever seen the divine romance?
This message is full of vision, and depth, and unveils God’s eternal purpose; and that He has been propelled by His love for man, and He desires above all to enjoy man as His loving counterpart for eternity. This is quite a view of the Bible; a different view that is commonly spoken of and experienced by believers today. To see this kind of love relationship is really a hidden part in the Word of God.
