The Last Great Day is the final holy day of the year, and it depicts the final steps in God's plan. After this—eternity!
For the billions of people who have never known the truth, the second resurrection offers them an opportunity for future salvation.
Two of history's wisest men, Job and Solomon, contemplated the possibilities of an afterlife, and both concluded that something better awaited us after death.
Are millions lost because they never heard the name of Christ? What about infants who died? Are the doors forever shut on those born into false religion?
Both the time element and the significance of the Great White Throne has been lost on most of 'Christianity' because it refuses to keep God's Holy Days.
John Ritenbaugh focuses upon the pouring out of water as a symbol of the pouring out of God's Holy Spirit during the Second Resurrection. The vast majority of people who have lived on this earth have never heard the true Gospel of God's Kingdom. God, not willing that any should perish, has a timetable, carefully calculated to …
We must look beyond our own calling, realizing that the sacrifice of Christ was for all men, with the hope that they will be added to the family of God.
Peter's statement that Jesus 'preached to the spirits in prison' has baffled many a Bible student. The traditional interpretation is woefully off-base.
Richard Ritenbaugh, referring to the caption, "The End," suggests that "The End" may also fill our minds with prophetic symbolism at the end of the age. Noah's flood was an end, the temple's destruction was an end, Christ's second coming will be an end, and the Last Great Day will be an end as well as a …
Richard Ritenbaugh, reflecting on the life of Ryan Leif, an athlete who had all the advantages, suggested that his stupidity ended up mitigating his advantages and achievements. As he started his rookie year, he fumbled and made many errors, destroying his reputation as a sterling quarterback. His subsequent life went downhill, …
Most of Christianity ignores the third resurrection, but it shows God's ultimate justice and how He will deal with incorrigibly evil people in godly love.
If God is manipulating everything in His sovereignty, why pray? What does prayer teach us? Here is why God commands us to come before Him in prayer.
Multiple billions of people have lived and died without even hearing the name of Jesus Christ. But God has distinct periods of judgment and resurrection.
One aspect of sovereignty that causes some confusion is predestination. God's sovereignty does not remove a person's free moral agency — we must still choose.
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.) God never does anything haphazardly. Together, God the Father and Jesus Christ …
The prospect of atonement and salvation is available to everybody, but only those called by the Father—not by an evangelical altar call—are eligible.
God's will, predestination, and choice (or free moral agency) are distinct elements that must be understood if we are to walk with God. In the example of a child summoned by a parent to clean up his room, the child's dawdling, complaining, and other acts of disobedience are not predestined nor are they part of God's will. Acts …
