About Pursued by Love Series
Love is a force that is not stoppable or predictable. Love is unquenchable. The only thing you can do to Love is…miss it.
Christ and Israel: Lectures and Addresses on the Jews (1911) by Adolph Saphir:
“The very unbelief of Israel, their very chastisement and dispersion among the nations of the earth cannot make the promises of God of none effect. The Lord has chosen Israel, and this choice is rooted in the everlasting counsel of God, of which Jesus is the center.”
And I will visit [punishment] upon her for the feast days of the Baals, when she burned incense to them and decked herself with her earrings and nose rings and her jewelry and went after her lovers and forgot Me, says the Lord.
Therefore, behold, I will allure her (Israel) and bring her into the wilderness, and I will speak tenderly and to her heart.
Hosea 2:13-14 AMPC
Even as His righteousness plans judgment, God’s love designs redemption. And that redemption is the most startling expression of HIS commitment, HIS power, and HIS sovereignty! All of which are motivated by His unshakable, unchangeable love for Israel.
