Transcript

  • 1. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION
  • 2. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION The book of Ruth is one of those beautiful Old Testament pictures that are designed by God himself to illustrate the dramatic truths of the Christian faith expounded in the New Testament.
  • 3. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION 1 Corinthians 10:11 "Now these things happened to them as a warning [literally, as a type] but they were written down for our instruction, upon whom the end of the ages has come."
  • 4. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 1:1-5 ‘In the days when the judges ruled in Israel, a severe famine came upon the land. So a man from Bethlehem in Judah left his home and went to live in the country of Moab, taking his wife and two sons with him...
  • 5. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 1:1-5 ... The man’s name was Elimelech, and his wife was Naomi. Their two sons were Mahlon and Kilion. They were … from Bethlehem in the land of Judah...
  • 6. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 1:1-5 ... Then Elimelech died, and Naomi was left with her two sons. The two sons married Moabite women. One married a woman named Orpah, and the other a woman named Ruth. But about ten years later, both Mahlon and Kilion died. This left Naomi alone, without her two sons or her husband.’
  • 7. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Hebrews 11:6 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
  • 8. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ray Stedman ‘Only those who are educated beyond their intelligence finally talk themselves into believing that there is no God.’
  • 9. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Matthew 7:7 7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
  • 10. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ray Stedman ‘If a person never finds God, it is because he/she never bothered to seek.’
  • 11. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Psalms 8:3-6 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?...
  • 12. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Psalms 8:3-6 ... 5 You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. 6 You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet…
  • 13. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Hebrews 2:8-9 … 8and put everything under their feet.” In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them…
  • 14. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Hebrews 2:8-9 … 9 But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
  • 15. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Matthew 28:18 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
  • 16. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION When "my God is king“ marries "pleasure“ the result is always death.
  • 17. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Mahlon means "sick" and Chilion means "wasting away."
  • 18. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 1:16-18 But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God...
  • 19. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 1:16-18 ... 17 Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD punish me severely if I allow anything but death to separate us!” 18 When Naomi saw that Ruth was determined to go with her, she said nothing more.
  • 20. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 1:20 “Don’t call me Naomi,” she responded. “Instead, call me Mara, for the Almighty has made life very bitter for me.”
  • 21. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION When "my God is king“ marries 'pleasure,“ "pleasure" is turned into "bitterness."
  • 22. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 2:1 Now there was a wealthy and influential man in Bethlehem named Boaz, who was a relative of Naomi’s husband, Elimelech.
  • 23. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 2:2 ‘One day Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, “Let me go out into the harvest fields to pick up the stalks of grain left behind by anyone who is kind enough to let me do it.’
  • 24. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Leviticus 19:9-10 “When you harvest the crops of your land, do not harvest the grain along the edges of your fields, and do not pick up what the harvesters drop….
  • 25. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Leviticus 19:9-10 …. 10 It is the same with your grape crop— do not strip every last bunch of grapes from the vines, and do not pick up the grapes that fall to the ground. Leave them for the poor and the foreigners living among you. I am the LORD your God.
  • 26. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 2:8-10 “Listen, my daughter. Stay right here with us when you gather grain; don’t go to any other fields. Stay right behind the young women working in my field…
  • 27. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 2:8-10 … 9 See which part of the field they are harvesting, and then follow them. I have warned the young men not to treat you roughly. And when you are thirsty, help yourself to the water they have drawn from the well.” …
  • 28. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 2:8-10 … 10 Ruth fell at his feet and thanked him warmly. “What have I done to deserve such kindness?” she asked. “I am only a foreigner.”
  • 29. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION "Why have I found favor in your eyes, that you should take notice of me, when I am a foreigner."
  • 30. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 2:11-12 11 “Yes, I know,” Boaz replied. “But I also know about everything you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband. I have heard how you left your father and mother and your own land to live here among complete strangers…
  • 31. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 2:11-12 … 12 May the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge, reward you fully for what you have done.”
  • 32. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 2:20 20 “May the LORD bless him!” Naomi told her daughter-in-law. “He is showing his kindness to us as well as to your dead husband. That man is one of our closest relatives, one of our family redeemers.”
  • 33. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 3:10-13 “The LORD bless you, my daughter!” Boaz exclaimed. “You are showing even more family loyalty now than you did before, for you have not gone after a younger man, whether rich or poor…
  • 34. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 3:10-13 … 11 Now don’t worry about a thing, my daughter. I will do what is necessary, for everyone in town knows you are a virtuous woman. 12 But while it’s true that I am one of your family redeemers, there is another man who is more closely related to you than I am...
  • 35. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 3:10-13 … 13 Stay here tonight, and in the morning I will talk to him. If he is willing to redeem you, very well. Let him marry you. But if he is not willing, then as surely as the LORD lives, I will redeem you myself! Now lie down here until morning.”
  • 36. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 4:9-10 9 Then Boaz said to the elders and to the crowd standing around, “You are witnesses that today I have bought from Naomi all the property of Elimelech, Kilion, and Mahlon…
  • 37. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth 4:9-10 … 10 And with the land I have acquired Ruth, the Moabite widow of Mahlon, to be my wife. This way she can have a son to carry on the family name of her dead husband and to inherit the family property here in his hometown. You are all witnesses today.”
  • 38. RUTH THE ROMANCE REDEMPTION Ruth4:13-15 ‘So Boaz took Ruth into his home, and she became his wife.
