The Boaz and Ruth Prophecy

I am so blessed to be given this destiny, this prophetic time before the Messiah Yeshua returns. Yes, we see birth pangs. Our walk with Yeshua is to spread peace or Shalom, to help the poor, orphan and oppressed. We are to be persecuted for His Name Sake. And to take it with joy!
Here are the questions?
  1. Who is Boaz?
  2. The paradigm of Boaz?
  3. Who is Ruth?
  4. The paradigm of Ruth?
  5. Who is King David?
  6. The paradigm of King David?

Lesson 1 The Prophecy of Boaz
Boaz is first mentioned in Ruth 2:1 " a prominent man of substance whose name was Boaz." Boaz in Hebrew has an unknown root meaning. So he is in effect a mystery. And yet, in the Temple his name would be engraved on a pillar in the porticos of the Temple. 1 Kings 7:21 "Thus he set up the right pillar and named it Jachin, and he set up the left pillar and named it Boaz." The Messianic Tree of Life Bible, p.383 footnote states the meaning, He will Establish and In Him is Strength. Boaz in the story is a descendant of Elimelech, God is King from the tribe of Judah. Boaz as a Jew follows Torah. He becomes the kinsman redeemer to take Ruth his dead nephew's wife to bring a son into the family of Elimelech. Although he is old, he completes a good deed to cover a Gentile
Widow Ruth with his name and possessions.  The paradigm or type of Boaz today is the Messianic Jewish movement. Boaz is found in the land of Israel. We know that Israel became a confirmed nation in 1948. The Messianic Jews have gained their prominence in the land of Israel within the last few decades. They are doing good deeds in helping all peoples in the land and around the world. Their faith is in Yeshua the King of the Jews who died on the cross for all peoples. In their movement, we find Gentiles of all nations joining with them to worship Yeshua,  King of Judah, Israel and all the nations. As Boaz and Ruth married and became parents to a son, the born again Jew and Gentile of today are the predecessors of the return of Yeshua as the conquering King. 

As I write this blog, I have to divide it into sections. I need to pray and seek answers. So Lesson 2 will come soon.
