Summary: THE FOUR LEVELS OF PROGRESSION OF FAVOUR ON RUTH
THE FOUR LEVELS OF PROGRESSION OF FAVOUR ON RUTH.
Gods FAVOUR increases on you when you move in faith,Ruth had no idea that she was going to glean in the field of BOAZ,she just went in faith.
THE FIRST LEVEL OF FAVOUR ON RUTH SHE HOPES FOR DROPPINGS TO FALL FROM THE GLEANERS
AFTER SHE STUMBLES ON THE FIELD THAT BELONGS TO BOAZ KINSMAN REDEEMER:
Ruth 2:33:And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech.
Ruth came as a ordinary gleaner trusting in gods favour as she went on she found the reapers that were reaping in a field that belong to BOAZ. And she PICK THE DROPPINGS WHICH FELL FROM THE GLEANERS; SHE HAD TO HOPE FOR DROPPINGS TO FALL FROM THE GLEANERS:
Ruth 2:1010: Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace( FAVOUR) in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?
falling down is worship :we also worship the master WHEN WE FALL AT HIS FEET.
Ruth 2v14 now BOAZ said to her at mealtime come here,and eat of the bread,and dip your piece of bread in the vinegar(wine)
At noontime when the sun is at its hottest when you start feeling the heat OF LIFE come to Jesus he will prepare a table BEFORE YOU in the presence of your enemies :WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE IS BOAZ IS BESTOWING GRACE UPON RUTH.This is a typology of the last supper.It seems that BOAZ is ignoring his own workers and concentrating on Ruth,a gentile.When our SAVIOUR INSTITUDED the last supper the disciples had no idea that the gentile bride the church,is becoming the bride of Christ,so it is with BOAZ workers they got no idea that this gentile is going to become the wife of BOAZ
Ruth 2v14 so she sat besides the reapers and he (boaz) passed parched grain to her
Notice boaz pass the bread to her,Jesus passes the bread to his disciples
BOAZ SO TO SPEAK IS IGNORING HIS
WORKERS AND SPOILING THIS GENTILE WIDOW.
AFTER BREAKING BREAD WITH BOAZ LOOK WHAT HAPPENS:
GOD INCREASES THE FAVOUR LEVEL ON RUTH;
LETS LOOK AT
RUTH 2v15; AND WHEN SHE WAS RISEN UP TO GLEAN,BOAZ COMMANDED (NOT SUGGESTED)HIS YOUNG MEN,SAYING, LET HER GLEAN EVEN AMONG THE SHEAVES AND REPROACH HER NOT:
Before she is hoping for droppings,now after lunch at BOAZS table he commands the young men saying let her glean even among the sheaves and leave her alone.
NOW THE SHEAVES IS NOT THE FIELD THE SHEAVES IS A PLACE WHERE ALL THE GRAIN IS STAKE AFTER IT IS HAVESTED.THATS THE PLACE WHERE THE BEST DROPPINGS ARE FOUND GLEANERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GO THERE.THERE SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE FIELD BEHIND THE HARVESTERS. AND THIS FAVOUR HAPPENED TO RUTH AFTER SHE BROKE BREAD WITH BOAZ AND SHE ATE AND WAS SATISFIED AND HAD A DOGGIE BAG FOR NAOMI.GOD WANTS TO KEEP ON GIVING US THE BREAD OF LIFE AS MUCH AS WE WANT THE WORD OF GOD IS INEXHAUSTABLE: GREAT THINGS HAPPEN AT THE LORDS TABLE; LETS REVISIT THE WORDS OF BOAZ(GAOL) KINSMAN REDEEMER IN
RUTH 2v9:LET THINE EYES BE ON THE FIELD THAT THEY DO REAP AND GO AFTER THEM:
