When we first meet Naomi life has great sorrow over again reminder she lost more than these lost to us for youth husband and her two sons and her daughter along she love she had nothing except Ruth and we should not lose sight of these things as things change and whatever bitterness Naomi had been.
There was some. Their blood is dealt with me. We talked about that it is burning off like the fog. This is cross reference radio with our pastor and teacher Rick Gaston. Rick is the pastor of Calvary Chapel Mechanicsville.
Pastor Rick is currently teaching through the book of Ruth. Please stay with us after today's message to hear more information about cross reference radio, specifically how you can get a free copy of this teaching. Boaz and Ruth is the title of Pastor Rick's message and today he'll be teaching in Ruth chapter 1 it has been fully reported to me all that you've done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband and how you have left your father and your mother in the land of your birth and have come to a people whom you did not know before going to go on all that you Boaz answered and said to her, it has been fully reported commented on that. The details were given to him I would do when you love to get a picture of him, listening as the stories being told.
You know Naomi's back. Yes, you know, she brought her daughter, Laura, Ruth, I did not know that. Did you know she was a Moabitess know you know Naomi's husband died on knew that. Did you know Ruth's husband died 12 man this is not good. We got two new windows in town and the story continues and ruthlessness and ruthless data.
Naomi and Ruth in it and in this case just like wow essay goes on about his business he shows up to where I can lose this. This is Rose she's with Naomi. All lights turn on and I think it was even a little emotional on me, but also crying or they just could feel like madness. Okay that's I put a face with the action now verse 12 he says that he's continuing. Now he says Yahweh repay your work and a full reward be given you by Yahweh God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge so he now praying for is a matter of prayer Yahweh be with you. God bless you Yahweh bless you and now he's he knowing that he sees talking. Ernie says Yahweh repay your work your magic going to get a job and you're talking with the person design he hires you and comes back to the warehouse where you are in, as he is talking to you Ziad. I know some things about you and just I just want God to bless you big how rare that is seeing her loyalty to Ruth and that she was a believer. As we read in chapter 1 in verse 16. Your God will be my God, and here you know she's living that way. He says a full reward be given to you by Yahweh that God would fully bless her for her grace that he would be gracious to the gracious and then he says, under whose wings you have come to metaphorical Old Testament pictures, one from the past of this present moment and one in the future is probably born out of this moment earlier in Exodus 37 verse nine we read about always read it. The cherubim is over, the ark of the covenant, the mercy seat you had the ark which is the chest. He had the mercy seat which was delayed and then you had the cherubim on top with their wings out and then we read the cherubim spread out their wings above and covered the Mercy seat with their wings they face one another. The faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat so the emphasis is not on the cherubim, but it is on God's mysterious creatures sort of being amazed at the mercy of God on behalf of sinners is so sort of a word picture and this was the ark of the covenant, and so when this this phrase, whose wings you, the mercy of God is for refuge will you get refuge when someone gives mercy for us. There's no new refugees are looking for someone to not treat them like foreigners, but to bring them in and keep them safe from what they're running from and so here there's that Old Testament metaphor is shown up in the days of of Moses and now here later. The psalmist will continue this Psalm 91, he shall cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you shall take refuge. This truth shall be your shield and your bottler.
The psalmist that you will Psalm 91. One of the greatest of them all. There there. The wings show up again. She will repeat these words to him.
Ruth chapter 3 verse nine and he said who are you so she answered I am Ruth, your maidservant take your maidservant under your wing for you are a close relative.
She's like Esther Esther did everything she was told when Mordechai heard her guardian cousin Mordechai or head guy that the chief of UNIX in the palace when they told Nestor to do something she did it, and because she was submitted to the right people. She was unstoppable to always to the throne as the Queen verse 13 and she said, let me find favor in your sight, my Lord, for you have comforted me and have spoken kindly to your maidservant, though I am not like one of your maidservant so you can see his cousins coming back. You know she's Moabitess, no stranger, not a maidservant, so this the stigma of being a foreigner was not little. It was a big thing with Lisa Ruth's mine and he is putting that to rest. She greatly appreciates. She welcomes this undeserved kindness and so she says let me find favor in your sight, my Lord, I don't know I not Yahweh. The covenant name that means like the master are for you have comforted me to. She was worried about how mother provided is going to be enough grain on the run into people that will bully me with was going to happen.
She doesn't know the kind voice spoken to her have grown a trip from Moab when she decided to stay. Would Ruth and ORPA decided to go back to her parents, Ruth had to be saying to yourself.
I wonder how they going to treat me when I show up because I'm sure some part of the parochial lingual learnings. She was exposed to the wars between the Jews and the Moabites. Verse 14 a. Boaz said to her at mealtime come here and eat of the bread and dip your piece of bread in the vinegar so she sat beside the reapers and he passed parched grain to her and she ate and was satisfied and Back so Boaz Said to Her. At Mealtime, so They Took a Break Is Lunch Time and He Personally Invites Her, Which Is of a High Honor Man in His Position Personally Inviting Her the Dipping of the Vinegar.
You Know There Was Some Other Stuff in the Vinegar to Me Was What Could Have Been. I Guess the Pallet Thing Anyway Not Uncommon for Them to Have Things to Dip the Bread in. Just Be Glad When Locus Right Simply to Locust Jelly. John The Baptist Will Love This.
Years Later, Way so Here It Says and He Passed Parched Grain. Boaz Himself Serves Her so High Honor Receive a Reserve for Honored Guest and She Ate Was Satisfied As She She Knew Hunger and Poverty so She's Enjoying the Meal. What She Remembers Naomi She Doesn't Just Satisfy Herself and That in Halt Mailed I Get Some Barley Grain Would Go Back and Make Barley Bread. She Takes Some of the Food and She's She Stashes It, and How How Can Anyone Not Love Ruth. I Visited Him and You Can You Can Be Saying and Not Love Ruth There Are People like This in Life There Are People That Really Just Lovable and Unfortunately People There Too Many People to Don the Notice. It May Take It to Try to Take Advantage of Them. You Know the to Kindness for Weakness or Kindness for Stupidity or Something Else Anyway. Verse 15 and When She Rose up to Glean, Boaz Commanded His Young Men, Saying, Let Her Glean Even among the Sheaves, and Do Not Reproach Her Again so He Can't Help Himself. He Still Is Nice Dell Giving Instructor She's off Signals Back a Little Lunch Away from Naomi's Had Her Lunch Just Bringing More, Getting More Grain and and He Sort of like like He Adores Her As a Person and Is Going to Do Whatever He Can Do to Help Her 16 and Led Grain. He Continues, He Still Going Live Grain from the Bundles Fall Purposely for Her Leave It That She May Glean, and Do Not Rebuke Her Hopes That We Drop That and According to Law.
They Were Supposed to Pick It up Once. If They Drop It like That and He Is Telling the Dual-Purpose Not Know Just Making More Available for Her. She Knows That She's Cleaning for Two and As Ruth Went Back to Glean, Boaz Stood Just to Review Issued Three Orders to His Servants, and One Is Ruth Was Allowed Now to Glean amongst the Tide Bundles That Was Off-Limits to the Reapers Are Not the Reapers Think the Gleaners in the Reapers at Work for Boaz. He Had the Gleaners Became How They Were the Poor, They Would Just Pick up What Was Left on the on Whatever Was on the Ground.
It Would Was Theirs, and the Servants Were Not to Touch Her Corset Was a Drink and Rest Whenever She Wanted and They Want to Yell at Her. She Had Carte Blanche Sort of You Know That Jesus Could Do Anything That She She Wanted Pretty Much. Of Course You Would Abuse That Verse 17 so She Glean in the Field Every Evening and Beat out What She Had Gleaned and It Was about an E-File of Barley so That What She Had. She She Had to Get the Husk off of It Wasn't That She Just Collected That She Collected Then That the End of the Day. She Had to Get the Husk off the She's Just Taken the Grain Home. The Exact Size of the Hero E-File Is Unknown, but We Know It's Enough for Her to Have At Least a Couple Days. Bread May Be More Than Days.
Enough for Her to Be Able to Carry Home.
You Know Maybe Should Stop and Rest A Few Times.
Who Knows, but She's Got Enough Feces Was Will Find That Naomi Will Testify to This Verse 18.
Then She Took It off and Went into the City and Her Mother-In-Law Saw What She Had Gleaned so She Brought out and Gave to Her What She Had Kept Back after She Had Been Satisfied, so She Gets Home. Naomi Sees This and Then She Brings the Lunch That She, in All the Leftover A Lot Left over the Partially Reserve for Naomi. She Takes Thou She Gives Us the Naomi's Receipt. This Is Good Stuff Here and Verse 19. Her Mother-In-Law Said or Will You Glean Today and Where Did You Work Blessed Be the One Who Took Notice of You.
So She Told Her Mother-In-Law with Whom She Worked and Said the Man's Name with Whom I Work Today Is Bo Hess Again. You Know You'd Love to See Naomi's Face When Ruth Says the Word, the Name Boaz.
It's the Light Sieges without Hesitate Was Only One Boaz and His Family and He's Rich and Evidently He Noticed You. So Is There Anything More Welcome Then to Be Noticed by One Who Can Help When You Need Something Again. Luke Again and with the Cares Luke 19, Five and When Jesus Came to the Place He Looked up and Saw Him and Said the KS May Case Come down for Today I Must Stay with You.
He Noticed Him Because This Tax Collector Hated by Every Body.
When They Noticed It Was in the Negative.
Jesus Sees Him and Says That Money with You Is the Kind of Things That Cause John The Baptist to Say See the Messiah Was Even a Guy like Him for John's Gospel, McDaniel Said to Him to Jesus and Jesus Saw Nathaniel Coming to an Israelite Indeed in Whom Is No Guile upon Us a Straight Shooter.
Somebody That Is Not Going to Try to Take Advantage of You Is Not an Opportunist. Daniels a Decent Jewish Man. That's What Jesus Said about Nathaniel Because He Is Decent Said That Is a Damn How Do You Know Me, What Is Your Right As They Have a Good Guy. Jesus Answered and Said to Him, before Philip Called You When You Are under the Fig Tree so You Had to Have Been for That to Work. He Had to Have Been in a Secluded Place. Also Just What You Look They Can Look to the Lattices of Me. There Was a Big Deal. He Must've Been Somewhere in the Courtyard or Something like That.
Nobody Could See Him As He Was Alone, Having His Devotional Time in the Lord Saw Him. That's What Needed to Happen to This Ruth and Naomi and Their Poor State.
Something Had to Happen. Naomi Amazed at the Good Fortune of Her Daughter-In-Law Pronounced a Blessing on Boaz Not Even Knowing It Was Then Look Back Again in Verse 19.
Her Mother-In-Law Said, Where You Glean Them Where You Work. Blessed Be the One Who Took Notice of You This before She Knows Is Boaz. She Said Whoever Is Giving You This Nonsense Granting I Mean Gleaners Don't Bring Home This Much in a Day, Whoever He Is. May God Bless That Man and Then She Inquired and She Said Boaz Did You Say Boaz the Mention of the Name Was Enough to Begin. Naomi to Start Flying Out Of the Fog. She Had to Be down. She's Home All Day. I Was Just How Life Is Going to Be for Us. From Here on in Hungry All the Time. Tired All the Time. Outcast Relief from Society That the People in Kind Enough Is This It, and Then This Connection. Verse 20 Then Naomi Said to Her Daughter-In-Law. Blessed Be Yahweh Who Is Not Forgotten His Kindness to the Living and the Dead in Naomi Cedro This Man Is a Relation of Ours. One of Our Close Relatives May Only Waste No Time Ruth Doesn't Get It. Ruth Is Monday Because for Some Grain or Something and and Naomi Is His Packing Their Bags. I Love This CP Blesses Him. Then Naomi Said, Blessed Be He of Yahweh Is Not Forsaken His Kindness to the Living and the Dead. She Knew the Boaz Knew the Story and She Knew That Boaz Was Acting on That Story.
She Sees A Lot More You Know They Say a Woman's Intuition. The Man Is a Relation of Ours Says She Here in Verse 20.
Now Again I Can't Leave This out. I Think I Said It Last Time We Did Ruth That You Know Because I Didn't Think She Was As Beautiful As Some of the Other Women. She Was No Baby Ruth.
I Had to Say It Not Not X Could Go Home Saying That You Know I Could've Said That Is Not to Be in Ruth Again until after the Rapture or We Are All in Heaven and Am Teaching One of Their Anyway.
Imagine If Pastors Have To Go through a Corrective Process of All the Things They Got Wrong. I Feel Sorry for Those Guys All Wrong Commentaries and Things. Anyway, This Relative That's That Word Relatives I Don't Know What You Different Translation I'm Using the New King James Even Those Little Old That's Go Well, That's the the near Kinsman, but I Made a Big Fuss about Earlier and Just to Review in Ancient Israel.
He Was the Family Protector or Deliver. If You Need to Be Rescued. He Was the Guy That Could Do It and These Kind of Men Have To Watch Themselves Lest They Be You Know People Always You Know, Can You Only I Want to Buy a New Client's Units Are Getting That, but It Had to Be Big Trouble. We Had a Right to Recover Forfeited Property Which Enters into the Story and He Had Right to Buy Back a Relative from Slavery nor Relative Would Indenture Themselves or Be a Servant for X Amount of Years Because I'm Broke and I Need Money and He Would Work in the Kinsman Could Come in and Buy Him Out Of That. Some Think That the Kinsman Would Also Be the Avenger of Blood. If You Killed a Relative of Mine Live near Kinsman Would Be the One Responsible for Getting That Revenge Is Reviewed. If You Could Get to You before You Got to City of Refuge. So They Came with the Oh and Then You Would Have To Marry Her Brother's Wife. If He Died without Children and You Were Still Single and If You Weren't Single and a Polygamist Environment You Would Get First Opportunity at Which Is Going to Be the Case in This Story. So Again, He Is the One Who Will Rescue Me. That Is the Goal. Well, the Redeemer Job Joe Says, for I Know My Goal L Lives. My Redeemer Lives and He Shall Stand at Last on the Earth Quite Prophetic and Ruth Says to Naomi after She Is Told. This Is a Relative, Ruth Says Is More. I'm Not Done Telling You Naomi What Happened Today.
Verse 21 Ruth the Moabitess Said He Also Said to Me You Shall Stay Close by My Young Men until They Have Finished All My Harvest That Would Be the Barley and Then the Wheat Harvest Comes Next. So Were Talking about Three Months Time and You See Again Naomi's Eyes Is What the Old Man This Is Just Getting Better. The Wheels Were Not Turning in. Naomi Said They Were Spinning the RPM Radical. We First Meet Ruth. She's a Widow but Her Faith Did Not Die with Her Husband. What a Lesson We First Meet Naomi Life Has Raked Sorrow over Again Remind Her She Lost More Than Ruth Lost to Us for Youth Husband and Her Two Sons and Her Daughter along She Loved and She Had Nothing except Ruth and We Should Not Lose Sight of These Things Because Things Are Changing and Whatever Bitterness Naomi Had Been. There Was Some There Lord Has Dealt with Me. We Talked about That It Is Burning off like the Fog. Verse 22. Naomi Said Ruth Her Daughter-In-Law Is Good. My Daughter That You Go out with His Young Men, and That the People Do Not Meet You in Any Other Field Is Good.
What He Said to You and We Can Convey the Emphasis Put on This, but Naomi Doesn't Have To Reminder Tomorrow Morning Ruth Is Going to Go out to Be in This Field Boaz Is Told a News. Naomi Has Ratified Totally Supported and Nine Naomi Was Sharp As She Was Just Stuck. She Could See These Things, She Probably Was Seen on Whistling Tombs All Day. After This, Naomi. I Don't Know Why Whenever Seniors Never Knew since My Son Is Boaz Has Not a Chance Because the Naomi Nobody Knows It but Naomi Seemed Know God's Fingerprints Were All over This Not from a Room and She Just Knows God Is in This God Got You to the Field of Earthly Things You This Is the Lord God Is in the Village You Move. Blow It Well, God Does Not Disown Naomi for Her past Failures of Bitterness. Instead, He Begins to Restore Her.
So Now Is an Appropriate Time to Read Joel Chapter 2 Verse 25 so I Will Restore to You the Years That the Swarming Locusts Have Eaten, the Crawling Locust, the Consuming Locust or Chewing Locust My Great Army Which I Sent among You. You Catch the Army of Troubles down There Case to Be Brought upon Them Via by Unbelief, but Life Has Its Share of Locust and They Come in Droves. And Sometimes for Years God Lets Us All Deal with This. Don't You Just You Just Have That Enduring Faith. That's What I Want from You. Verse 23 so She Stayed Close by the Young Man of Boaz, to Glean until the End of Barley Harvest and Wheat Harvest, and She Dwelt with Her Mother-In-Law so Ruth, Sort of. Now This Story Is This Going to Set the Bar for Women That Come after Her. As a Mentioned Esther, She Would Many Years Later, Hundreds of Years Later Hear the Story Know It Very Well and Know What Type of Woman Naomi and Ruth Were She Also Would Know What Type of Woman Offer Was in Oracle As Indecent As She Was, She Still Left the Lord.
Esther Will Not Esther Will Will Remain and She Has Her Troubles. He Knows That While Helping Us Get to the Point Where What You Want Me to Do and More Guys Will You Better Come over Some of the Quick Sister Live Is Not from You or Somebody Else Is Going to Do, but for Such a Time As This. And of Course He Says Okay Well If I Bear As I Bear Siegel Gail Find Goal Get It Done and It Can Help the Human Sized of the Scripture Is What Keeps Us Longer and Doesn't Need Us to Make It Fake. We Take It like It Is Because This Is You Know the Word of the Lord.
It Changes Lives. Well, We Ask God to Help Us to Be Faithful under Pressure to Not Waver in Our Faith. I Have Wavered, Not Not Well Not Any Granted Event, but Certainly Just Not Too Cheerful Ownership and Cheerful When I Could've Mustered More Romans Chapter 4 Will Close with This Romans Four, Verse 20 He Did Not Waver at the Promise of God through Unbelief, Peaking of Abraham, but Was Strengthened in Faith, Giving Glory to God.
This Was What This Means. This Means Paul the Apostle, the King of New Testament Beat down He Had a Man like Abraham. Abraham to Keep Him Going.
The Reason Why Paul Remains True Because of the Influence of Others on His Life from the Scriptures and from Life Itself Is a Good Thing.
