Ruth Chapter 3 Discussion

  • T Levis - in Reply on Ruth 3
    Hello Kobe Southern,

    Interestingly, after studying scripture I've noticed, GOD gave mankind dominion, on Earth. Genesis 1:26,27,28, GOD didn't take that dominion away, people have misused their powers. They/we will all give account: Revelation 1:5-8, Romans 14:12, Daniel 4:3,34, Matthew 25:31-46, Matthew 18,

    Jesus was here to show us how to bring His Kingdom the Kingdom of GOD on Earth, with Love, John 3:16-21, John 13:34, Romans 12:10, 1John 4:7,12, 1Peter 3:8, John 15:17, James 2:13-17, Luke 13:34,

    one day all dominion will go to Christ: 1Corinthians 15:20-28, Romans 16:20,

    Galatians 4:1-8, Colossians 3:21,

    Matthew 20:25-28, Ephesians 1, (whole chapters) 1Peter 4, Jude 1,

    Jesus gave all that believe in him, authority under heaven: from GOD ALMIGHTY: Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 6, Luke 11, Mark 3:15, Acts 4:30,31, Luke 9:2,

    We all have power in the natural if even just to comfort someone else, & as we grow in faith, supernatural power in prayer, through GOD & Christ Jesus our Savior.

    Hopefully these are helpful

    Yes, this is a wonderful account of Ruth and Naomi's relationship and the blessing of becoming a wife to Boaz.

    It most likely was Naomi's believing example that impacted Ruth to turn to YHWH, but we do not know if Naomi's sons, husbands of Ruth and Orpah, who also may have modeled and taught faith in YHWH to their wives also. The text does not say so, but it is likely that Naomi was used by God in their faith journeys also.

    My comment: This is a beaitiful story of faithfullnes and obedience at a time, knowing that Ruth is a gentile yet a virtuous woman of God that was also loyal to Naomi. Ruth evidently learned of the true God thru her mother-in-law, and trusted what she tells Ruth. The story ended well with them all, including Boaz who followed their cultural tradition.

    Please it is very interesting, if you go to Rome you must do what the Romans do. Also there are many ways in killing a cat. If Ruth is a prostitute, she will leave her in law at night and go out to satisfy herself. But here is the case it is her in law who thought her how the whole thing should be done. Let us rather praise Ruth for heeding to all that her in law advised her to do and today through her(Ruth), we have our saviour Jesus Christ. Amen

    James, I just can't place my comment & your comment is not connected to a thread, so I just don't know the context that I wrote in. But I do agree with your comments that we have received much, much more through the Lord Jesus Christ.

    You wrote: "Don't you think that David was granted salvation through that same Unique Son, as well as us?". Ultimately, Yes, but in biblical chronology, No. David, as all of Israel unto the coming of Christ, were subject to the obedience of God's Laws as declared to them which included the sacrificial system. They all would have been judged by the law & condemned for their disobedience to it (as they could never keep it). Thus in Scripture we get a glimpse of where the 'righteous dead & the unrighteous dead' go to prior to the crucifixion & resurrection of Jesus ( Lk 16:19 ff). Here we see that dead Abraham was already in Paradise (not Heaven), a great gulf between the 'righteous dead', & others who suffered in Hades. So, it must be assumed that if Abraham was there, then so was David & others the Lord deemed were righteous but unsaved through the Law. So how does one distinguish between the two?

    In Heb 11, we get a glimpse of not only some of those who were deemed 'righteous' (e.g. Abel, Enoch, etc.), but that their 'waiting in Paradise' after their death was substantiated, not by their keeping of the Law, but by their faith in God to bring them through to Himself despite the Law's judgement against them ( Heb 11:2, 13-16, 39, 40). Their faith served as a catalyst (a looking forward) to the full & proper payment for their sins, even though they were in ignorance to the perfect Sacrifice to come for them. So, when Christ rose from the grave, so all who died when once they lived in an active faith, were raised also to be justified through faith, as Jesus resurrection was for that purpose for them & to all who come in like faith now to Him. I realize that you're probably have this also in mind, but thought to share my understanding.

    There are people who have died and went to heaven and came back with testimonies. Called NDE's. (Near death experiences)

    You can google it or go on YouTube. I've heard of some on the 700 Club's program.

    Society tries to shout them down claiming that it's brain death responses.

    The people testifying of it don't see it that way at all.

    Also, remember that old movie, Flatliners, is just that: a movie built around a script someone wrote. Same thing for that movie: What Dreams May Come. Entertainment.

    The Bible tells only one recorded testimony: the one about Jesus being crucified for our sins and being resurrected after 3 days!! Being physically witnessed by hundreds of people. There was no doubt that there was no body in his burial place.

    If you know someone dying you need to get over there and lead them to believe on Jesus. Be brave. The Holy Spirit will enable you.

    Hi Chris,you said that our Heaven Father gives us all that David received,I believe that as well.But is He giving us far more?He gave us a sure salvation through His Unique Son.Don,t you think that David was granted salvation through that same Unique Son,as well as us?David was after GOD,S own heart, he was GOD,S choice.I believe that David was saved by the same Jesus that saved Me.God graciously promised that one day Christ would come into the world as a Lamb foreordained before the foundation of the world( 1 peter 1:19-20)I think will bring clarity to what i,m trying to say.By faith Abraham was credited as righteousness.all who has faith in Abraham is Abraham,s children.Grace and truth came by JESUS CHRIST.Jesus did say;before Abraham was, I AM.He is the same savior.GOD our savior,Jesus Christ our LORD and savior,the redeemer and keeper of our souls.What a mystery!
  • Mishael on Ruth 3:15
    There are plenty of people coming into Prayer Request room that could use some ministry. Take all that frustration with the virus conversations and comfort Christians who are hurting.
  • Velta gilbert on Ruth 3:15
    who in the bible other than Jesus has gone to heaven and told about it.

    has anyone of today told about going and came back

    This weight measurement in Ruth 3:15 has its connection to a 'Seah' in Hebrew. But because of a seah's greater weight (2.5 gallons) for Ruth to be able to carry, it is understood that an Omer should be used in this context. So according to that, six omers would be equivalent to about 4.5 gallons of equivalent weight.

  • Chris - in Reply on Ruth 3
    Irene, I think that some portray Ruth in that light, simply by the way she went about making herself known to Boaz. In the Deut. reference, the act appeared more lawful as the brother-in-law takes on the duty & responsibility to care for the widow & have his brother's name continue. Whereas in Ruth's case, even though Boaz was a near kinsman & had the right to marry her if he wished, her presence near him at night startled him, but he also knew the good intentions in her act. So, I agree with you, that Ruth shouldn't be seen in a bad light, but as an indicator to Boaz that she would like him to take on the responsibility of care.
  • Irene Allen on Ruth 3
    I am not happy with how some portray Ruth as prostituting herself for food. that's so unfair. Before putting her down why don't we try reading Deuteronomy 25:5----. Read and learn facts.
  • BSP on Ruth 3
    Verse 5~Ruth had deep respect for her mother-in-law and she showed it by her words and actions.
  • Anne on Ruth 3
    Boaz was a man of integrity and therefore could be trusted to do the right thing.
  • April on Ruth 3
    I think this could help lots of people in relationship confusion or maybe they feel lonely, the number one thing is what does GOD want for us?,some of us are in relationships that cause questioning or discermant to be with someone or not,wether they have come to know you or not,a fresh relationship,we do need like minded people but as we can see GOD works in mysterious ways bringing ppl together:)

    The book of Ruth is so encouraging, especially when you look closely at Naomi, Ruth and Boaz. The widowed Naomi has a mind to serve and worship God in a foreign land. Her witness is so powerful it propels Ruth to want be with her and worship her God. Ruth lineage descends from incest, yet God looks at her heart and uses her to eventually be in the lineage of Jesus. Boaz mother is Rahab.
  • Edna McDaniel on Ruth 3
    To have that kind of love for a mother in law what a blessing for both women. A man would have to be humbled and touched in his heart to wake up and find a woman lying at his feet. A telling story of respect, love, obedience and hope wrapped in a neat little bundle.
  • Vivian on Ruth 3
    We serve a wonder God. Just like Ruth if we would just be obedient God will bless us. Ruth truly loved her mother in law and because of that love she want Ruth to be happy. It seem to me then God blessed all of them. .
  • Fidelia Gideon on Ruth 3
    God is awesome, He is the great master planner, the greatest arranger. He makes all things beautiful in His own time. Yes He rewarded Ruth for her faithfulness.
  • Pastor John B. Joseph on Ruth 3
    I see a cord of affection binding Ruth to her mother in law, I see Naomi panting affectionately towards her to get her a marital rest...then I see the Holy Spirit working in the direction of Boaz. Let us thank God for the obedience of Ruth
  • Victor Carstarphen on Ruth 3:9
    that she was more obedient that many of the christians today, i
  • Charles Mumo on Ruth 3
    Its awesome to see how God works with hearts of men! The heart of Ruth and Boaz was realy directed by God like a stream of water.
  • Leslie on Ruth 3
    Where do you guys get that Ruth had to sleep with Boaz? Did you not read the book? She gets up and leaves before anyone sees her. It was a proposal.
