Genesis 17:15–27 — Ishmael Receives the Sign of Faith

God re-names Sarai—again reflecting his covenant promise. And one essential characteristic of the covenant of promise is that covenant community will always be comprised of elect and non-elect. Inseparable from the covenant itself are the parties of the covenant.

Hosea 1:4–9 — Disobedient Children

Israel was called God’s son—a status under threat here in Hosea—as graphically demonstrated in the naming of Hosea’s children. God’s pending divorce of Israel points to the only way for God’s elect to be saved. The warnings in Hosea are for God’s people today that we may examine ourselves to be sure we are in the faith.

Hosea 1:1–3 — The Faithful Bride

The Book of Hosea opens up with a shocking command as God tells the prophet to “Go, take to yourself a wife of whoredom and have children of whoredom.” Hosea’s wife, Gomer, will serve as both type and anti-type. Listen as the book of Hosea points to the faithful bridegroom and calls the Christian to be a faithful bride.
