All in All
Summary: John Ritenbaugh contends that history is not confined to the past. We are actively participating in it just as surely as the prominent figures of the Bible. As citizens of Jerusalem above, we need to have our minds singly focused on the heavenly home... 

New Heavens and New Earth
Summary: John Ritenbaugh marvels about the scope of God's mind, His patience and meticulous planning, having taken place before the foundation of the world, perhaps more than 10 billion years ago (allowing for mankind's limited tenure of nearly 6,000 years.) ... 

Our Awesome Destiny
Summary: John Ritenbaugh observes that without our special calling and the gift of God's Holy Spirit, we would be about as clueless as to the purpose of our life as Solomon was throughout Ecclesiastes. Understanding is totally different from knowledge. Some p... 

Our Awesome Destiny
Summary: In this sermon, John Ritenbaugh asserts that what God's called - out ones have been given is rare in the annals of the history of all mankind, a kind of sacred secret into which one must be initiated in order to grasp, appreciate and make the right u...

What Did Nebuchadnezzar See?
