'Prophecy Watch' by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

When Jesus said the end time would be like the days of Noah, did He mean that the last days would be violent and corrupt, or that they would come suddenly?


The Great Flood (Part One)

God's decision to destroy the earth and humankind by a flood was ultimately an act of great love, stopping mankind before his heart became incorrigible.


Leadership and the Covenants (Part Eleven)

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

John Ritenbaugh, reiterating that godly leadership is lacking in Israelitish countries, maintains that grace is the single most important gift God gives us, and without this gift we would still be a part of this world—a world which has become equally as sinful as the times of Noah, when every thought of man was evil. From …


The Great Flood (Part Three)

Genesis 6:1-4 summarize what led to God's rejection of the pre-flood civilization: men chose wives solely on the basis of sex appeal and external beauty.


The Great Flood (Part Two)

The quality of leadership affects the morality and well-being of a nation, and the quality of family leadership trickles up to civic and governmental leadership.


The Great Flood (Part Four)

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

Richard Ritenbaugh, reiterating that Genesis 6 reflects a distortion of the marriage and family structure on the earth, examines the probable meaning of the "sons of God."

Conspiracy Theory (Part Nineteen)

Commentary by John W. Ritenbaugh

John Ritenbaugh, reiterating that the nephilim were not the offspring of angels cohabiting with humans, suggests that these "giants" were most likely the descendants of Seth, apostates from the true religion, who decided not to follow God.

The Great Flood (Part Eight)

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

Richard Ritenbaugh, concluding the Great Flood account, focuses on the statement, "Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord."

Leadership and Covenants (Part Ten)

'Personal' from John W. Ritenbaugh

God and Noah worked side by side to deliver the remnant of humanity through the Flood, God supplying the sanctification and grace and Noah obeying in faith.


Leadership and the Covenants (Part Twelve)

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

John Ritenbaugh, warning that, as culture deteriorates, the church will be 'exposed' as the enemy, encourages us to make sure that the foundations of what we believe are secure.

The Days of Noah

The Handwriting Is on the Wall (1995)

Feast of Tabernacles Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

In this keynote address of the 1995 Feast of Tabernacles, John Ritenbaugh asserts that because cultural restraints which once held human nature in check have been removed, vile human nature has waxed increasingly more corrupt and depraved, approaching conditions described in Genesis 6:5-7.

Handwriting on the Wall (2015)

Feast of Tabernacles Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

John Ritenbaugh reminds us that we are approaching the end of a seven year cycle, the seventh year on the Hebrew calendar, a time of the year of release, when the Law was publicly and solemnly read. This event has always proved more solemn with a sense of urgency than the services of a regular Feast of Tabernacles. In the …


Life in Sodom

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

Richard Ritenbaugh, reiterating that the end time will resemble the pre-Flood world of Noah, a time of depravity, immorality, spiritual ignorance, and apathy, cautions that people will be oblivious to the ominous signs of the times.

How Much Leaven Can God Take?

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

John Ritenbaugh asks the question, "How much leavening would God allow to infiltrate into the church, society, or the individual before He steps in to correct it?"
