Not My People

Hos 1:8-9 When she had weaned No Mercy, she conceived and bore a son. And the Lord said, “Call his name Not My People [Hebrew: Lo-ammi], for you are not my people, and I am not your God.”

This third child represents the third, final, and most damning of all the consequences of unfaithfulness. God punishes (first child) without mercy (the second child) and casts out (third child) sin.
