In this latest account in the saga involving the prophet Hosea and his faithless wife (Gomer), the scene changes yet again. This time, Hosea's bride, a proven prostitute, is caught in adultery, and the command given by God to Hosea is to bring her back, to buy her back, and to love her. As he did so when he first took Gomer to be his wife, Hosea immediately complies with God's command, and brings his unchaste and unfaithful wife home. This scene, while describing a literal event in the marriage of Hosea and Gomer, ultimately paints a picture of how God will bring his unchaste and unfaithful bride—Israel—back to Himself "in the last days" (Hosea 3: 5). In this sermon, "The Hard Way Home," Pastor Jesse Randolph addresses these and other matters in his verse-by-verse exposition of Hosea 3:1-5.
