BIBLE STUDY


HOSEA – unfailing love changes everything

Studying the book of Hosea—The Book of Hosea is a deeply personal and passionate love story, yet it’s a difficult story. As an account full of harsh judgment unfolds, we find in its midst a rare gem: the truest and purest of loves. Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. This study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. You’ll be guided to understand, but more especially to apply, the message of the prophet of love. Hosea showers us with hope and points to the coming of the promised Messiah. Be amazed by the love of Hosea for his wayward spouse—and more amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people.

BIBLE PROPHECY conversation

We are living just before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to the earth and we have about 1,000 scriptures to tell us about His return, yet most people will miss the Second Coming. This will happen because people do not know the prophecies. This Understanding the Endtime series was designed to explain the prophecies of the endtime in easy-to-understand terms. After viewing Understanding the Endtime no one should miss the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
