I love words! Ruth-less! No! Be Ruth-full! Add a “t” and you have truth-full! Don’t be ruthless, be Truthful or Ruth-full! Ruth laid with Boaz, the kinsman redeemer. He took her as his bride. She went from tears to joy; tribulation to rapture! This was a “type and shadow” or foreshadowing of Christ.
Like Ruth, we are to lay with Christ, intimately KNOW Christ/Love, the Wisdom and Power of God, the “feminine” inner wisdom and power, the incarnated “God within us”, the Kinsman Redeemer, the kingdom of God within. Like Ruth and Boaz, God and his Lamb take us as their bride! Like Ruth we go from tears to Joy and tribulation to Rapture!!! We are a new Royal Family!!!!
We go from the tomb or womb, to the resurrection and ascension, and finally the embodiment of Christ’s Spirit within us. We receive new Birth! Our physical body is redeemed, glorified, filled with new Life and we begin to live in shalom: peace, wholeness, completeness and the fullness of God!!!
It is ALL about an intimate relationship with God! It is an inside job! Seek first the kingdom and Christ’s righteousness and everything is given to you! All things are possible with God within you, around you, and above you! Swim in the ocean of God’s Presence! Get soaking wet in the River of the Water of Life! Eat bread and drink new wine in the kingdom of heaven on earth with your betrothed Beloved!!!!
