I have observed over the years that freedom is hard to obtain and harder to retain. There are always those around who seek to undermine the freedoms we have here in the USA. I want to talk about that on this site.
There is another freedom that also came at a great cost. The freedom we have in Jesus Christ. His freedom can’t ever be taken away. That makes me feel real good, so good in fact that I want to tell my friends. I found this freedom back in 1966 and have never regretted one day of the ride. I would like to talk about this also.
So look around the site, read some of the articles, make some comments and we will have some conversation.

 

One Response to True Freedom

    The Book of Ruth – (Sharon)

    Dave has been telling me to read the Book of Ruth in the Bible, and I was amazed at the things I found: The book of Ruth is a picture of God’s provision for us. Ruth was the gentile bride brought into the land (like the church).  Naomi is like the land of Israel who was exiled from her land and later returned.  Ruth learned the laws of Israel through Naomi, just like we learn the ways of  God in Jewish scripture.  Boaz is the man, who was a kinsman of Naomi’s.  He was willing and able to be a goel or kinsman redeemer for Naomi and Ruth.  It was required that a kinsman redeemer be willing and able to assume all obligations of Naomi and Ruth.  Then he had to actually take the position and assume the debts.  This is a foreshadowing of what Christ has done for us and for the Jews.  Jesus willingly paid our debts.  He was uniquely qualified to be our kinsman redeemer.  The final step in this plan of redemption for Ruth, and for us, was when he actually assumed the deed.  That will happen for the whole world when our Kinsman Redeemer is found worthy to open the seals in Revelation. 
    The theme of this whole book is a picture of God’s plan for all involved; the Jews and the church.  While each has a separate destiny both are redeemed as He promised. We are watching for the time He comes and completes the deal.  He already paid the price on the cross.  The final glorious move is when He will possess the land.  That day cannot come soon enough.  I can see why the entire book of Ruth is read by the Jews at Pentecost.  It is prophetic whether they see it now or not.
    It is a joy to see how God planned for us gentiles way back then and planted clues throughout the Old Testament of His plan. What a merciful God!
