Ruth chronicles the events of an unsaved hell bound idol worshipping woman who follows a Jew to salvation and is greatly blessed by the Lord. Because of her humble spirit and her willingness to sacrifice, surrender, submit, and serve, the Lord blesses Ruth with the right husband at the right time according to God’s providence. Ruth is delivered from her affliction, double typing a Gentile being saved in the tribulation and being a type of the bride of Christ. Ruth gets blessed, goes from famine to feast and has her name recorded in the Bible for all eternity (Ps. 119:89).
