VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL, FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2019

HOSEA 6:3

Let us know,

Let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord.

His going forth is established as the morning;

He will come to us like the rain,

Like the latter and former rain to the earth.

HOSEA CHAPTER 6 IS ABOUT REPENTANCE, CALLING ISRAEL BACK TO FAITHFULNESS. IT IS ALSO PROPHETIC ON TWO LEVELS: (a) THE “GOING FORTH ESTABLISHED AS THE MORNING,” REFERS NOT ONLY TO JESUS/YESHUA’S FIRST COMING, BUT  (b) ALSO TO HIS SECOND ARRIVAL. IT WILL TRULY BE A “NEW DAY” WHEN HE COMES TO SET UP HIS KINGDOM ON THIS EARTH.

IT WILL BE A NEW DAY, 
A FRESH RAIN/REIGN

“HE WILL COME TO US LIKE THE RAIN” – YES, HE HAS COME, AND WILL COME AGAIN, AND IT WILL TRULY BE A FRESH REIGN, FOR HE WILL REIGN WITH A ROD OF IRON, AND BRING JUSTICE AND MAKE GOOD OF ALL EVIL THAT HAS BEEN WROUGHT UPON THIS EARTH.

SO LET US LOOK FORWARD, ANTICIPATING WITH JOY HIS GLORIOUS ARRIVAL. LET OUR HEARTS BE FILLED WITH LONGING TO SEE HIM, FOR HIS PRESENCE, AND BE COMFORTED IN KNOWING THIS PRESENT LIFE IS ONLY TEMPORARY, FOR WE HAVE AN ETERNAL DESTINY WITH OUR SAVIOUR, LORD, MASTER, KING, FATHER, AND HUSBAND.
