GODS RESTORATION BUSINESS

TEXT: For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. Jeremiah 30:17 KJV

Hosea 6:2-3

After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. (‭Hosea‬ ‭6‬:‭2-3‬ KJV)‬‬‬

IN CONTEXT

Verse 11

Though I make a full end of all nations - Though the Persians destroy the nations whom they vanquish, yet they shall not destroy thee.

Verse 12

Thy bruise is incurable - אנוש anush, desperate, not incurable; for the cure is promised in Jeremiah 30:17, I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds.

Verse 13

There is none to plead thy cause - All thy friends and allies have forsaken thee.

Verse 15

Thy sorrow is incurable - אנוש anush, desperate. See Jeremiah 30:12.

Verse 16

They that devour thee - The Chaldeans.

Shall be devoured - By the Medes and Persians.

All that prey upon thee will I give for a prey - The Assyrians were destroyed by the Babylonians; the Babylonians, by the Medes and Persians; the Egyptians and Persians were destroyed by the Greeks, under Alexander. All these nations are now extinct, but the Jews, as a distinct people, still exist.

Verse 18

The city shall be builded upon her own heap - Be re-edified from its own ruins. See the book of Nehemiah, passim.

And the palace shall remain - Meaning, the king's house shall be restored; or, more probably, the temple shall be rebuilt; which was true, for after the Babylonish captivity it was rebuilt by Nehemiah, etc. By the tents, distinguished from the dwelling-places of Jacob, we may understand all the minor dispersions of the Jews, as well as those numerous synagogues found in large cities.

Verse 19

I will multiply them - They shall be very numerous; even where at present they have but tents.

I will also glorify them - I will put honor upon them every where, so that they shall be no longer contemptible. This will be a very great change, for they are now despised all over the earth.

Verse 20

Their children also - They shall have the education of their own children as formerly.

And their congregation - Their religious assemblies.

Shall be established - Being, in the latter days, incorporated with those "who serve the Lord their God, and worship the Messiah, the son of David."

Verse 21

Their nobles shall be of themselves - Strangers shall not rule over them; and -

Their governor shall proceed from the midst of them - Both Nehemiah and Zerubbabel, their nobles and governors after the return from Babylon, were Jews.

Verse 22

Ye shall be my people - The old covenant shall be renewed.

• INTRO: I want to focus on the phrase For I will restore, For God will restore! God is looking to restore His people today He is still on the throne He is still the same God He hasn't changed WE HAVE! We need Him to restore something's in our own personal lives if we are gonna see souls saved and if you are not saved hopefully you will examine your own life today and be Restored.
