In 1984 my little family, consisting of myself and my wife, who was pregnant with our firstborn son, moved to Astoria Oregon. I had heard of two families in the city who were praying for someone to come plant a New Testament Baptist Church. The evening we arrived in town, I met two others. While all four families would have said they were independent, fundamental Baptists, they were as different as night and day. One of those families in particular held to doctrinal positions that were strange to me and the rest of us. They derived those doctrines, to a large extent, from some typology out of the book of Ruth. For that reason, the little book of Ruth has always held a fascination to me. It is a wonderful account. It is a precious portion of the Word of God. It is profitable for our study. But it is not what those folks believed it to be.
I think the real profit of the book of Ruth is the message of Christ. I trust you will find the results of my studies a help and a profit in your own relationship with Jesus Christ.
2020 came and I began to pray for reviving. I can’t say I know why, but I began waking up around midnight each night to pray that God would give us “a little reviving.” One night, around the middle of January, I said to God in one of those midnight prayer meetings, “Whatever you need to break in us that we might see a little reviving, I give you permission.”Wow, I could have never guessed how God would answer that! 2020 has provided us, not only with the normal things everyone has been dealing with such as: COVID-19, assembly restrictions, economic troubles, and a massive shift in political perspective in the United States of America, we’ve gone through some trouble in the church and some turmoil in the family. God is good and He has brought us through to 2021. I still long to see, a little reviving.
