Jesus our Kinsmen Redeemer.

The book of Ruth is a perfect analogy of Jesus our kinsmen redeemer. Ruth was a Moabitess, a foreigner who was from a nation in whom God had cursed. But as Boas showed Ruth favor and granted her his grace and acceptance so too does Jesus accept all who come to him for redemption. Ruth was a widow, poor and destitute but her heart had been turned to follow the ways of YHWY. Naomi must have been used by God to be an example of his love and kindness, for Ruth wanted to stay with her rather than return to the godless ways of her past.

Naomi’s other daughter returned to her old ways because the seed of God’s love did not take root in her heart but Ruth knew that life with the one true God was the way of truth and so she followed Naomi to the Promised Land. Like Ruth who was a sinner saved by God’s grace, we too enter the Promised Land by having our Boaz “the mighty one” as our kinsmen redeemer.

“If your brother becomes poor and sells part of his property, then his nearest redeemer shall come and redeem what his brother has sold” Lev. 25:25

As Boaz accepted Ruth even though she had a “past” so too does Jesus accept us in the beloved when we come to him for protection and deliverance. Jesus became “like unto his brethren,” and thus making him our kinsmen redeemer as the law demands for buying back someone or something sold into slavery. Being sold under sin we needed to be purchased by a kinsmen redeemer and Jesus did just that!

“For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh” Romans 8:3.

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich” 2 Corinthians 8:9 .

After Boaz expressed to Ruth his acceptance (Ruth 2:2) through grace (unmerited mercy) Ruth was then able to put her faith (Ruth 2:12) in him to be her Savior. This is an analogy of Jesus our kinsmen redeemer. As a righteous man Boaz would honor his part of the kinsmen redeemer agreement under the law and so too does Jesus fulfill all the righteous requirements of the law for us!

“…but when the completion of the time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born a subject of the Law, to redeem the subjects of the Law, so that we could receive adoption as sons.” Galatians 4:4, 5

“And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband’s, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz. And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find GRACE And she said unto her, Go, my daughter.” Ruth 2:2

Just as Ruth became a child of the living God and was under the protection of Boaz so are we under God’s protection and just as Boaz provided for Ruth and accepted her so too are we as Christians accepted and provided for by JESUS CHRIST our kinsmen redeemer because we are purchased with the price of HIS blood.

“Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook in the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil; and might deliver those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. Hebrews 2:14-15

Now as redeemed persons we are bought back and are no longer slaves to darkness but we have now become our kinsmen redeemer’s property. We come under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and just as Ruth slept at Boaz feet, in submission, so must we be in submission to our Lord and master and sit at his feet. We also must continue to work in our Redeemer’s harvest field until all the harvest is brought in and the wedding feast of our Lord is ready!

1 Corinthians 6:20: “Are you not your own property, then; you have been bought at a price. So use your body for the glory of God.”

“And Ruth the Moabitess said, He said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest. And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field. So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.” Ruth 2: 21-23

“Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.” John 4:35,36

My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
