Falling in Love with Jesus
The Book of Ruth is rich in symbolism. For many, the story of Ruth
is an endearing picture of Jesus Christ as the “Kinsman Redeemer” of the Gentiles.
While this may be true of ten tribes of Israel who were scattered among the Gentile nations,
there is a second unnamed redeemer referred to
as “peloni almoni” (פלני אלמני), meaning “such a one”.
As it turns out, this “peloni almoni” is the kinsman closest to Naomi.
I find it interesting that this unnamed kinsman redeemer is willing to accept the offer to redeem
the parcel of land itself, but when he learns of Ruth,
he defers the offer to Boaz.
Why is this?
“And the kinsman said, I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I mar mine own inheritance: redeem
thou my right to thyself; for I cannot redeem it.” - Ruth 4:6
So who is this mysterious redeemer?
“Peloni Almoni” (פלני אלמני) has a numeric value of 301
301 is also the numeric value of:
“Elohim” (אלהים) [Full] meaning “God”
“Esh” (אש) meaning “fire”
“Menorah” (םנורה) meaning “candlestick”
The Menorah is a symbol of the Eternal Light as revealed in Jesus Christ, for
Jesus Himself said, “I AM the Light of the world”
God is a fire…
“For our God is a consuming fire."
The Spirit of God is a fire…
“And there appeared to them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
And they were filled with the Holy Ghost
and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
Daniel 8:13 is the only other place in Scripture besides Ruth where
the phrase “a certain one” is mentioned.
“Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said
unto that certain saint (one) which
spake, ‘How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice,
and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary
and the host to be trodden under foot?’.”
The root word used here for “that certain saint (or one)” is “palmoni” (פלמוני).
It has been noted that “palmoni” is a contraction of the Hebrew
root words “pele” פלא and “manah” מנא,
meaning “wonderful numberer”.
“Palmoni” has a numeric value of 216…the most
wonderful number in the Tanakh.
216 is the numeric value of Temple Sanctuary known as…
The Holy of Holies
4 + 2 + 10 + 200 = 216
216 = 6 x 6 x 6
As Richard McGough of www.biblewheel.com very cleverly pointed out:
“This is why the ‘Man of Sin’ who sits in the Holy of Holies shewing
himself to be God, is marked by the Number 666.
Paul said it like this…
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first,
and that man of sin be revealed,
the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,
or that is worshipped;
so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God.”
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
From Dafei Tang’s blog The Secret of Megillat Ruth:
The phrase “Boaz Peloni Almoni” has a numeric value of 386
בֹּעַז וּפְּלֹנִי אַלְמֹנִי
“Yeshua” יֵשׁוּעַ (Jesus) = 386
The phrase “the close redeemer” has a numeric value of 385
“Moshiach” מָּשִׁיחַ (Messiah) = 385
“Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when He cometh shall find watching:
verily I say unto you, that He shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat,
and will come forth and serve them.
And if He shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch,
and find them so, blessed are those servants.”
There are two Messiah’s that can be seen in Scripture…
“Moshiach Ben Yosef” משיח בן יוסף
“Moshiach Ben David” משיח בן דוד
Boaz represents The Messiah as revealed in His first coming, while
Peloni Almoni represents The Messiah at His second coming.
The same Redeemer who came to call His bride, shall come back to claim His bride.
While the majority are fooled by “the man of sin”, the bride will not be fooled.
The bride knows her Beloved…she loves Him,
and waits patiently for Him.
And in that day…
The veil shall be removed from the eyes of all peoples and all nations,
and they shall rejoice with the Bride.
“Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her,
all ye that mourn for her: That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations;
that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. For thus saith the Lord, Behold,
I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck,
ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.
As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
“And the Lord shall be king over all the earth:
in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.”
“Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth: for Thy love is better than wine.”
Song of Solomon 1:2
