Hosea 6’s Comprehensive Covenant

The promises of the coming of God the Holy Ghost commence in Genesis and the covenant-breaking first Adam, and peak in those of Joel which were fulfilled with the covenant-keeping Second Adam’s sending of the Spirit on Pentecost Sunday.   This whole sequence is summarized in what we may well call ‘the Gospel according to Hosea’ (6:1-11). It predicts saved man’s decalogical subduing of the whole Cosmos, in the power of the Spirit.

Both Gentile-Christian and Hebrew-Christian believers shall revive (through Christ’s shed blood and His outpoured Spirit’s mighty operations).   May we, then, keep on working for God — until we see all God’s People return to the Lord — converted, healed, revived, restored, and knowledgeable in Almighty God, while keeping on following Him everywhere!   For He has set for them a harvest — of cosmic size.    Cf. First Corinthians 15:22-28 and Hebrews 1:6-13f & 2:5-10 & 10:12-16 with Kuyper’s De Leer der Verbonden on Hosea 6:1-11.
