Ruth: A Type Of The Bride Pt4 (Ruth Rewarded) (Ruth 4:1-4)Brother Nathan Bryant, April 24, 2013
Part of the Wednesday Night Bible Studies series, preached at a Midweek Meeting service
"And when Ruth was resting, it was a type of the Church resting in the promises of God! We have the earnest now of our salvation. We're not worried whether we're going over there or not, we're going! That's right. God said so! God promised it and we've got the earnest (Amen.), done been received, Christ has accepted us. No way to get away from It now, we're there! Amen! All we have to do is just wait till the... He take... He's down doing the Kinsman Redeemership. We have the earnest of it right now, waiting for the time that when He comes back.
And then what next thing Ruth was, Ruth was rewarded.
That's what the Church did. It entered into justification, under Luther. Then it went into sanctification, under Wesley. Went into the baptism of the Holy Ghost, in this last days. And now resting with the earnest of our inheritance that we know that something happened in us, we've passed from death unto Life, and waiting, groaning with nature, for that time when we will receive an immortal Life, an immortal fulness; our bodies will be redeemed. Everything's redeemed, and [we're just waiting from Him to return back from the gate]. Amen!
Then what? Ruth was rewarded. That's when we'll be rewarded."
~ Rev. William Marrion Branham (61-0618)

1Then went Boaz up to the gate, and sat him down there: and, behold, the kinsman of whom Boaz spake came by; unto whom he said, Ho, such a one! turn aside, sit down here. And he turned aside, and sat down. 2And he took ten men of the elders of the city, and said, Sit ye down here. And they sat down. 3And he said unto the kinsman, Naomi, that is come again out of the country of Moab, selleth a parcel of land, which was our brother Elimelech's: 4And I thought to advertise thee, saying, Buy it before the inhabitants, and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt redeem it, redeem it: but if thou wilt not redeem it, then tell me, that I may know: for there is none to redeem it beside thee; and I am after thee. And he said, I will redeem it. (KJV)
