Hos 2:3 lest I strip her naked and make her as in the day she was born, and make her like a wilderness, and make her like a parched land, and kill her with thirst.
If the nation of Israel does not turn from its idolatry, it will be brought down in shame. The nation will be stripped of authority, broken economically, and deserted. These things all came to pass just a few years after Hosea’s prophecy was given. Even today we can and should expect God to overthrow false religion. At the end of time we know that all will face the ultimate Truth and all of the enemies of Christ will be put in total submission, even death itself.
