June 4: Israel’s Redemption & Salvation

In the Valley of Achor God’s betroths Himself to Israel, binding them by His covenantal love. He is a faithful Husband.

Hosea 2: 18-20

“In that day I will make a covenant for them
 with the beasts of the field, 
with the birds of the air, 
and with the creeping things of the ground. 
Bow and sword of battle I will shatter from the earth, 
to make them lie down safely.

 “I will betroth you to Me forever; 
yes, I will betroth you to Me
 in righteousness and justice, 
in lovingkindness and mercy;

“I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, 
and you shall know the Lord.”

Consider God’s betrothal promises to Israel:

  • Righteousness: צֶדֶק – His bride will be righteous.
  • Justice: מִשְׁפָּט – God will provide atonement for His bride’s sins.
  • Lovingkindness: חֶסֶד  – God’s covenantal love is the foundation of the betrothal.
  • Mercy: רַחֲמִֽים  – God’s love for His bride is supernatural.
  • Faithfulness: אֵרַשְׂתִּ  – God’s promises are trustworthy; His faithfulness is part of His character and not based on the behavior of His bride.

 

 

 

 

PRAY GOD WILL LIFT ISRAEL’S BLINDNESS THAT SHE WILL SEE HER FAITHFUL HUSBAND.
