Leaving Moab Behind


df50d07b7cdc1a0becbfcbe55d398e2fWe need to learn what the significance of Moab means as it pertains to Ruth the Moabitess leaving her homeland. You remember Ruth don’t you? Well Ruth married the son of an Israelite woman Naomi, which in the Hebrew (Ruawth) means ‘friendship’. Ruth and Naomi (No`omiy [ no·om·ē’])were close so close that she was greatly influenced by her mother n law’s love and commitment for things of the Most High Yah.

We know that because of her declaration, ” But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you, or to go back from following after you. For wherever you go, I go; and wherever you stop over, I stop over. Your people is my people, and your Elohim is my Elohim” [An example of how a gentile is “grafted in”].
Moab is a place of idolatry.

There is always talk about Ruth meeting her Boaz, however, this is a scheme to take us away from the truth of the message, which is love for the truth of Yah so strong as to persuade and teach our sisters of Him. That is the message that we take the message of truth to all women, even those who will listen outside of the tribe. Out of this love to lay down her life, a gentile woman bore the lineage of King of Israel David.

So though we are taught about waiting on a man, and yes, we should wait on ‘the chosen’ man of Yah for us instead of being the aggressor in relationships. We must take hold to this text, that is, being a woman of influence. In essence, who are we following if they have not truth?

Today: We first must leave Moab, and secondly, leave Moab behind us that means change that thinking.

For your hearing:

Isaiah 15
Ruth 1
