Hosea 1:10-11 (KJV)
10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
After everything that was going to happen to the House of Israel and the House of Judah, the promise of the one true God would still be fulfilled. The children of Israel would still be as the sand of the sea that is so plentiful that it cannot be counted. Who will be the one head appointed to lead the people? There can only be one and that one is our Lord Jesus Christ.
The church was born in Judea and came up out of the land with the persecution of the early church that dispersed Christians throughout the known world. Paul became the apostle to the gentiles and the church grew across the known. With the conversion of Jews and the gospel being taken to the gentile by Paul the number true began to grow and will outnumber the sands of the sea.
Dear Lord: Thank you for sending your son to save a lost and dying world to be head of the church the one leader acknowledged by the church the bride of Christ. Give me the opportunity to share the gospel to be able to help to this number. To be a true child of yours to follow you no matter what. So people can see Jesus in me.
In Jesus name I pray amen.
