REDEEMER

OBSERVATION: RUTH IS A PICTURE OF ALL WHO ARE SEPARATED FROM GOD’S BLESSINGS AND IN GREAT NEED. KEY CHARACTERS ARE RUTH (A MOABITE, GENETICALLY CONNECTED TO ISRAEL THROUGH LOT A NEPHEW OF ABRAHAM), NAOMI (A JEW), AND BOAZ (A JEW).

INTERPRETATION:

RUTH 4:7 (NKJV) NOW THIS WAS THE CUSTOM IN FORMER TIMES IN ISRAEL CONCERNING REDEEMING AND EXCHANGING, TO CONFIRM ANYTHING: ONE MAN TOOK OFF HIS SANDAL AND GAVE IT TO THE OTHER, AND THIS WAS A CONFIRMATION IN ISRAEL. RUTH 4:7 (AMPLIFIED) NOW FORMERLY IN ISRAEL THIS WAS THE CUSTOM CONCERNING REDEEMING AND EXCHANGING. TO CONFIRM A TRANSACTION, A MAN PULLED OFF HIS SANDAL AND GAVE IT TO THE OTHER. THIS WAS THE WAY OF ATTESTING IN JEWISH CULTURE.

POINTS TO PONDER:

AN OLD SAYING IS, “THE OLD POINTS TO THE NEW”. THE OLD TESTAMENT LITERATURE POINTS TO THE NEW TESTAMENT LITERATURE. THE JEWISH TERM “GOEL” MEANS REDEEMER MENTIONED THIRTEEN TIMES IN THE BOOK OF RUTH.

SEE CHRIST IN THE FOLLOWING REALITIES:

DEUTERONOMY 25:5 A KINSMAN-REDEEMER MUST BE A RELATIVE OF THOSE HE REDEEMS.

RUTH 2:1 THE FAMILY MEMBER MUST BE ABLE TO PAY THE PRICE OF REDEMPTION.

THE KINSMAN REDEEMER MUST BE DEBT FREE.

THE ONLY PERFECT “GOEL REDEEMER” IS JESUS CHRIST. HIS WORK ON CALVARY ATTESTS TO THAT REALITY SINCE HE KNEW NO SIN, THEREFORE THE PERFECT SACRIFICE.

APPLICATION: RUTH PICTURES ALL WHO ARE SEPARATED FROM GOD’S BLESSING AND IN GREAT NEED. BOAZ IS A PICTURE OF JESUS CHRIST YOUR KINSMAN REDEEMER. BOAZ PAID A PRICE TO REDEEM RUTH. CHRIST PAID A GREATER PRICE FOR YOUR SALVATION.
