We all know that God’s Word is his divinely inspired communication to man, but we often fail to see how God is exalted in every book of Scripture. The Bible is not only a book from God but a book about God. Man was made for God’s glory and the Bible, rightly read and studied, shows man how and why to magnify God. Join Hiram and Forest as they unravel the text to see God magnified.

    “A Scheme for Redemption” (God Magnified S2E6)

    God Magnified, Season 2, Episode 6 for Monday, September 14, 2020









    Ruth can thank her mother-in-law Naomi for the bold plan that led to her being potentially redeemed by Boaz. According to the cultural practices of the time, Ruth approaches Boaz so that he can redeem her and they can be a family. In Ruth 3, we see how Boaz is a shadow of Christ, our redeemer who purchased our eternal redemption (Hebrews 9:12). Join Forest and Hiram as they discussed how God is magnified in Ruth 3:1-18.

    God Magnified, Season 2, Episode 5 for Monday, August 31, 2020









    Boaz gave Ruth more than a job in the field, he gave her a seat at the table. God through Boaz blesses Ruth with more food than she can eat, more barley than she needs, more security than she expects, and more blessings than she foresaw. Because of Boaz, Ruth and Naomi’s fortunes are starting to turn. Join Forest and Hiram as they discuss how God is magnified in Ruth 2:14-23.

    “Gleaning Blessings From the Lord” (God Magnified S2E4)

    God Magnified, Season 2, Episode 4 for Monday, August 24, 2020









    God, through His timing, had worked out that Naomi and Ruth returned to Bethlehem at the start of the barley harvest. Because of provisions in the Law of Moses, Ruth was able to harvest the edges of the fields and follow the reapers to get what was left for her and her mother-in-law. She ends up in the field of Boaz, kin to Naomi, who goes out of his way to help her. Though these events may seem ordinary, they demonstrate the provision, providence, and blessings of God. Join Forest and Hiram as they discuss how God is magnified in Ruth 2:1-13.

    “Bitterness and the Timing of God” (God Magnified S2E3)

    God Magnified, Season 2, Episode 3 for Monday, August 17, 2020









    Bitterness can set in when we feel like we have been treated unfairly. Naomi was bitter because she felt the Lord had brought calamity upon her. She was so bitter, she even wanted to change her name from Naomi (“Pleasant”) to Mara (“Bitter”). Though Naomi’s story may make it seem like God had forsaken her, nothing could be further from the truth. It was the beginning of the barley harvest and Naomi and Ruth were about to witness the providence of God firsthand. Join Forest and Hiram as they discuss how the God of perfect timing is magnified in Ruth 1:19-22.

    “The Blessing of Loyal Friendship” (God Magnified S2E2)

    God Magnified, Season 2, Episode 2 for Monday, August 10, 2020









    Few things this side of heaven are better than a loyal friend. In Ruth 1:6-18 we see how Ruth’s loyalty and fidelity is able to break down the barriers of Naomi’s bitterness and cynicism. In Ruth’s radical devotion we see not only a shadow of Christ’s love for us but also what should be our devotion to Him. Join Forest and Hiram as they discuss how God is magnified in Ruth 1:6-18.
