Hosea 6:2 ” After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will restore us, that we may live in His presence.”

Israel’s breaking of the covenant that God made with them when He redeemed them out of Egypt is vividly illustrated by the broken marriage covenant between Hosea and his unfaithful wife, Gomer. But throughout the Chapter there still remains the promise of restoration. But with the promise there also comes responsibility and accountability on our part. God called His wayward children to repentance, conversion, and a solemn seeking after His Word….a call to true knowledge of the Lord. (Hosea 6:3) It meant an acceptance in the teaching of the Gospel Message as seen in I Corinthians 15:4…our absolute belief and trust in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In this verse above, we see the true promise of God – a chance to live anew, revived, and restored… all the while it showcasing God’s great fidelity, faithfulness, and covenant keeping on our behalf.
