‘Inhuman Love’ [Jesus’ words in commentary]

Words of Jesus: “I† cannot counsel you if you do not want counsel
I† cannot tell you truth if you do not acknowledge truth….”

Inhuman Love [Jesus' words in commentary]
 
she never thought
she was waterproof
she never thought
she was better at being new
‒many things
she just saw through
 
it didn't make her fireproof
‒she never really waited
for the burden of proof
she didn't need to
‒much like ruth
she waited...followed her heart‒
it told her
what to say and do
 
her movements
weren't always smooth
she never gave into
the spoof
she did what
she was supposed to
she wasn't hurtful or cruel
she was honest‒
stuck to the truth
 
oh! there was a time or two
she play the goof
tried to fit in‒
all the way down to fool
‒playing that old school
not the good-vestibule school
oh, no, that's not cool
'old school' compares
to april fool
it's the hidden molecules
that lives in dark pools
as long as it's secret‒
you're part of the school
 
once it's known‒
they do away with you
you're the punt of jokes
the redeemer for all
in ridicule
you become 'karen'‒
the bottom of tomfool
 
oh! yes she tried that school
when she finished‒
she beat her skin
turning it red from blue
 
she paid her price
in cruel
over her...men drooled
behind her‒
women played peek-a-boo
 
all the while‒
she always cooked
her own stews
she by-passed the taboo
dawned sin…twice the part
to get through
first a baby‒
instead of a coo-coo
second...a life‒
with a tattoo
 
she almost met her waterloo
she walked through
a witch's brew
of lies on a bayou
but....
she didn't flinch
at the bug-a-boo
 
instead…with raised arms
she moved with
the impromptu
a love so far in‒
giving her strength
to continue
she wasn't the ruth
she was being 'ruthed'
‒at every move…moved
protected and soothed
when she didn't know
what to do
there came the coup
‒the hand of God†
the ultimate rescue
 
she knew there was no
whoop-de-do
with God†‒
there's no easy
walk-through
 
but of all life‒
His† way was above
all value
‒she didn't need
a rendezvous
or the humanistic
games in zoo
 
she just needed Him†
 
His† love‒
was always true
through Him†‒
she became
weatherproof

Note: The photograph is from October 8, 2019: Oil Spill Warning. The screen shot was from the original frame which is much larger than the one here. What is it that I caught? Don’t know, but I’ve caught several things in photographs. Some I’m told to point and shot because something will be there and other times I’m not told. As in the second photograph taken less than a second before and no object, but the orb is there. This was a very interesting day of photographs.

(June 30)―I wrote ‘Inhuman Love’ yesterday. I was led to the story of Ruth two days ago. I don’t know what it is, but something struck me so profound that it’s had me sad since I read the story. It isn’t the first time that I read it. The first time was in 2007, but nothing inspired me then. Things have changed. So I thought about the story, then ‘Inhuman Love’ came. This made me even sadder, and I still don’t know why except that to see that my Lord has shown love to me the way Ruth has shown love to Naomi.

It also highlighted in my mind the betrayal of those who were supposed to love me no matter what. And this part really made me sad. Then this morning, after reading words of David, Jesus came:

Words of Jesus:

I† cannot counsel you
if you do not want counsel
I† cannot tell you truth
if you do not acknowledge truth
 
I† cannot shed light
if you cannot welcome it
I† cannot redeem sin
if you do not lift it up
I† cannot release burdens
if you do not acknowledge them
 
I† cannot save
if you do not want to be saved
I† will not enter
unless you welcome Me†

You don’t have to believe these words are directly from Jesus. It doesn’t matter. It still is. I know what it is like to be counselled by both Jesus and the Father…they make you cry, they make you see your truth and it hurts. What He says above is exactly the way it is. You have to invite Him in or He won’t come. Like in the story of Ruth, Ruth did the work first before she was eyed by the man who became her second husband. You have to prove to God that you are willing to do the work before He sends in Jesus.

I had to do this. He sent little crumbs and I had to use each crumb to prove that I was worthy of more crumbs. (Books 5-9). Nothing is for free. You must redeem yourself…prove you are willing. As Jesus answered the man who asked Him if He was willing to heal him, Jesus said, ‘I am willing.’ You have to be willing as well. You have to believe and have faith in what you cannot see.

The Story of Ruth

Naomi Loses FamilyIn the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land, and a man from Bethlehem in Judah, together with his wife and two sons, went to live for a while in the country of Moab. The man’s name was Elimelech, his wife’s name Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Kilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem, Judah. And they went to Moab and lived there. Now Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left with her two sons. They married Moabite women, one named Orpah and the other Ruth. After they had lived there about ten years, both Mahlon and Kilion also died, and Naomi was left without her two sons and her husband.—Ruth 1:1-5 (Ca. 1100 B. C. Moab)

Farewell to Daughters-In-LawWhen she heard in Moab that the Lord had come to the aid of His people by providing food for them, Naomi and her daughters-in-law prepared to return home from there. With her two daughters-in-law she left the place where she had been living and set out on the road that would take them back to the land of Judah. Then Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, ‘Go back, each of you, to your mother’s home. May the Lord show kindness to you, as you have shown to your dead and to me. May the Lord grant that each of you will find rest in the home of another husband.’ Then she kissed them and they wept aloud and said to her, ‘We will go back with you to your people.’ But Naomi said, ‘Return home, my daughters. Why would you come with me? Return home, my daughters; I am too old to have another husband. Even if I thought there was still hope for me―even if I had a husband tonight and then gave birth to sons―would you wait until they grew up? Would you remain unmarried for them? No, my daughters. It is more bitter for me than for you, because the Lord’s hand has gone out against me!’ At this they wept again. Then Orpah kissed her mother-in-law good-by, but Ruth clung to her.—Ruth 1:6-14

Ruth Expresses Bond‘Look,’ said Naomi, ‘your sister-in-law is going back to her people and her gods. Go back with her.’ But Ruth replied, ‘Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me.’ When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her.—Ruth 1:5-18

Note: The say from Ruth is said in most weddings between bride and bridegroom today.

Return to BethlehemSo the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem. When they arrived in Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them, and the women exclaimed, ‘Can this be Naomi?’ ‘Don’t call me Naomi,’ she told them. ‘Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter. I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The Lord has afflicted me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.’ So Naomi returned from Moab accompanied by Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, arriving in Bethlehem as the barley harvest was beginning.—Ruth 1:19-22 (Bethlehem)

Boaz Sees RuthNow Naomi had a relative on her husband’s side, from the clan of Elimelech, a man of standing, whose name was Boaz. And Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, ‘Let me go to the fields and pick up the leftover grain behind anyone in whose eyes I find favor.’ Naomi said to her, ‘Go ahead, my daughter.’ So she went out and began to glean in the fields behind the harvesters. As it turned out, she found herself working in a field belonging to Boaz, who was from the clan of Elimelech. Just then Boaz arrived from Bethlehem and greeted the harvesters, ‘The Lord be with you!’ Boaz asked the foreman of his harvesters, ‘Whose young woman is that?’ The foreman replied, ‘She is the Moabitess who came back from Moab with Naomi. She said, ‘Please let me glean and gather among the sheaves behind the harvesters.’ She went into the field and has worked steadily from morning till now, except for a short rest in the shelter.’—Ruth 2:1-7

Boaz Gracious to RuthSo Boaz said to Ruth, ‘My daughter, listen to me. Don’t go and glean in another field and don’t go away from here. Stay here with my servant girls. Watch the field where the men are harvesting and follow along after the girls. I have told the men not to touch you. And whenever you are thirsty, go and get a drink from the water jars the men have filled.’ At this, she bowed down with her face to the ground. She exclaimed, ‘Why have I found such favor in your eyes that you notice me―a foreigner?’ Boaz replied, ‘I’ve been told all about what you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband―how you left your father and mother and your homeland and came to live with a people you did not know before. May the Lord repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge.’

‘May I continue to find favor in your eyes, my lord,’ she said. ‘You have given me comfort and have spoken kindly to your servant―though I do not have the standing of one of your servant girls.’ At mealtime Boaz said to her, ‘Come over here. Have some bread and dip it in the wine vinegar.’ When she sat down with the harvesters, he offered her some roasted grain. She ate all she wanted and had some left over. As she got up to glean, Boaz gave orders to his men, ‘Even if she gathers among the sheaves, don’t embarrass her. Rather, pull out some stalks for her from the bundles and leave them for her to pick up, and don’t rebuke her.’—Ruth 2:8-16

Ruth Tells NaomiSo Ruth gleaned in the field until evening. Then she threshed the barley she had gathered, and it amounted to about an ephah. She carried it back to town, and her mother-in-law saw how much she had gathered. Ruth also brought out and gave her what she had left over after she had eaten enough. Her mother-in-law asked her, ‘Where did you glean today? Where did you work? Blessed be the man who took notice of you!’ Then Ruth told her mother-in-law about the one at whose place she had been working. ‘The name of the man I worked with today is Boaz,’ she said. ‘The Lord bless him!’ Naomi said to her daughter-in-law. ‘He has not stopped showing His kindness to the living and the dead.’ She added, ‘That man is our close relative; he is one of our kinsman-redeemers.’ Then Ruth the Moabitess said, ‘He even said to me, ‘Stay with my workers until they finish harvesting all my grain.’ Naomi said to Ruth her daughter-in-law, ‘It will be good for you, my daughter, to go with his girls, because in someone else’s field you might be harmed.’ So Ruth stayed close to the servant girls of Boaz to glean until the barley and wheat harvests were finished. And she lived with her mother-in-law.—Ruth 2:17-23

Naomi Plans EncounterOn day Naomi her mother-in-law said to her, ‘My daughter, should I not try to find a home for you, where you will be well provided for? Is not Boaz, with whose servant girls you have been, a kinsman of ours? Tonight he will be winnowing barely on the threshing floor. Wash and perfume yourself, and put on your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don’t let him know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking. When he lies down, note the place where he is lying. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down. He will tell you what to do.’ ‘I will do whatever you say,’ Ruth answered.—Ruth 3:1-5

Boaz Agrees to DutySo she went down to the threshing floor and did everything her mother-in-law told her to do. When Boaz had finished eating and drinking and was in good spirits, he went over to lie down at the far end of the grain pile. Ruth approached quietly, uncovered his feet and lay down. In the middle of the night something startled the man, and he turned and discovered a woman lying at his feet. ‘Who are you?’ he asked. ‘I am your servant Ruth,’ she said. ‘Spread the corner of your garment over me, since you are a kinsman-redeemer.‘ ‘The Lord bless you, my daughter,’ he replied. ‘This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier. You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor. And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. I will do for you all you ask. All my fellow townsmen know that you are a woman of noble character. Although it is true that I am near of kin, there is a kinsman-redeemer nearer than I. Stay here for the night, and in the morning if he wants to redeem, good; let him redeem. But if he is not willing, as surely as the Lord lives I will do it. Lie here until morning.’—Ruth 3:6-13

Naomi and Ruth WaitSo she lay at his feet until morning, but got up before anyone could be recognized; and he said, ‘Don’t let it be known that a woman came to the threshing floor.’ He also said, ‘Bring me that shawl you are wearing and hold it out.’ When she did so, he poured into it six measures of barley and put it on her. Then he went back to town. When Ruth came to her mother-in-law, Naomi asked, ‘How did it go, my daughter?’ Then she told her everything Boaz had done for her and added, ‘He gave me these six measures of barley, saying, ‘Don’t go back to your mother-in-law empty-handed.” Then Naomi said, ‘Wait, my daughter, until you find out what happens. For the man will not rest until the matter is settled today.’—Ruth 3:14-18

Kinsman Declines DutyMeanwhile Boaz went up to the town gate and sat there. When the kinsman-redeemer he had mentioned came along, Boaz said, ‘Come over here, my friend, and sit down.’ So he went over and sat down. Boaz took ten of the elders of the town and said, ‘Sit here,’ and they did so. Then he said to the kinsman-redeemer, ‘Naomi, who has come back from Moab, is selling the piece of land that belonged to our brother Elimelech. I thought I should bring the matter to your attention and suggest that you buy it in the presence of these seated here and in the presence of the elders of my people. If you will redeem it, do so. But if you will not, tell me, so I will know. For no one has the right to do it except you, and I am next in line.’ I will redeem it,’ he said. Then Boaz said, ‘On the day you buy the land from Naomi and from Ruth the Moabitess, you acquire the dead man’s widow, in order to maintain the name of the dead with his property.’ At this, the kinsman-redeemer said, ‘Then I cannot redeem it because I might endanger my own estate. You redeem it yourself. I cannot do it.’—Ruth 4:1-6

Transaction Made Legal(Now in earlier times in Israel, for the redemption and transfer of property to become final, one party took off his sandal and gave it to the other. This was the method of legalizing transactions in Israel.) So the kinsman-redeemer said to Boaz, ‘Buy it yourself.’ And he removed his sandal. Then Boaz announced to the elders and all the people, ‘Today you are witnesses that I have bought from Naomi all the property of Elimelech, Kilion and Mahlon. I have also acquired Ruth the Moabitess, Mahlon’s widow, as my wife, in order to maintain the name of the dead with his property, so that his name will not disappear from among his family or from the town records. Today you are witnesses!’ Then the elders and all those at the gate said, ‘We are witnesses. May the Lord make the woman who is coming into your home like Rachel and Ephrathah and be famous in Bethlehem. Through the offspring the Lord gives you by this young woman, may your family be like that of Perez, whom Tamar bore to Judah.’—Ruth 4:7-12

Boaz Marries RuthSo Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife. Then he went to her, and the Lord enabled her to conceive, and she gave birth to a son.—Ruth 4:13

Son Named ObedThe women said to Naomi: ‘Praise be to the Lord, who this day has not left you without a kinsman-redeemer. May he become famous throughout Israel! He will renew your life and sustain you in your old age. For your daughter-in-law, who loves you and who is better to you than seven sons, has given him birth.’ Then Naomi took the child, laid him in her lap and cared for him. The women living there said, ‘Naomi has a son.’ And they named him Obed. He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.—Ruth 4:14-17

Genealogy of ObedThis, then, is the family line of Perez: Perez was the father of Hezon, Hezon the father of Ram, Ram the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon, Salmon the father of Boaz, Boaz the father of Obed, Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of David.—Ruth 4:18-22
