A promise in the gospel.

“Some think that these promises will not have accomplishment in full, till the general conversion of the Jews in the latter days. Also this promise is applied to the gospel, and the bringing in both the Jews and Gentiles to it, by St. Paul, Ro 9:25,26, and by St. Peter, 1Pe 2:10. To believe in Christ, is to have him for our Head, and willingly to commit ourselves to his guidance and government. And let us pray for the coming of the glorious day, when there shall be one Lord through all the earth.”

Matthew Henry 

Hosea 1:8 Now when she had weaned Lo-Ruhamah, she conceived and bore a son.

9 Then God said:

“Call his name Lo-Ammi,

For you are not My people,

And I will not be your God.

10 “Yet the number of the children of Israel

Shall be as the sand of the sea,

Which cannot be measured or numbered.

And it shall come to pass

In the place where it was said to them,

‘You are not My people,’

There it shall be said to them,

 You are sons of the living God.’

11 Then the children of Judah and the children of Israel

Shall be gathered together,

And appoint for themselves one head;

And they shall come up out of the land,

For great will be the day of Jezreel!

    Ray, this passage, in Hosea 1, does speak of the fulfillment of these things at the Second Coming of Christ, at the end of the 7-year Tribulation (“time of Jacob’s trouble”/the 70th week of Daniel). This is the same time period referenced in Acts 3:19-21 KJV (it helps to use the pure, inerrant Word of God – I don’t know why you forsook it). This occurs subsequent to the “catching away” (Rapture) of the Church, the Body of Christ.

    The let to understanding God’s Word is 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV:

    (15) “STUDY to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth.”

    And, the DIVISION is between Israel’s “Prophecy” Program (Law/Judaism), and the Body of Christ Church’s “Mystery” Program (Grace/Christianity).
