Feast of Tabernacles sermons

Amos 5 and the Feast of Tabernacles

Are God's Holy Days To Be Kept Today?

Ecclesiastes and the Feast of Tabernacles (Part 2)

Fall Feast Lessons
In this sermon focused on the meaning of the Fall Feast, John Ritenbaugh affirms that the world will learn that God judges- that He has had perpetual hands on contact with His creation, having the ultimate decision over everything. After Satan is bou... 

Fearing God at the Feast

Feast of Tabernacles Basics
Richard Ritenbaugh affirms that in spiritual matters, as in athletics, those who have mastered the fundamental skills are the best. The fundamentals of the Feast of Tabernacles consists of a harvest image, depicting a massive number of people coming ... 

From Rubble to Utopia
In this preview of the Millennium, Richard Ritenbaugh cautions that the Wonderful World Tomorrow is not something that is going to happen because of an instantaneous miracle. God takes His time to produce both physical and spiritual changes. Because ... 

God's Rest and the Millennium
In this message on God's Millennial rest, Richard Ritenbaugh points out that both the Hebrew word shabbat and the Greek translation of the word katapausis denote cessation or stoppage rather than repose or sleep. It represents a cessation of worldly ... 

His Own Vine and Fig Tree

John 7:37 Examined (Part 1)

John 7:37 Examined (Part 2)
John Ritenbaugh, reminding us that the scene does not change between John 7 and 8, but the location changes in chapter 9, a location where He heals a man who had been blind from his birth. This stirred up another controversy with the Pharisees. All o... 

Knowing God: Formality and Customs (Part 2)
John Ritenbaugh admonishes that we must continually upgrade our decorum and formality in our approach to God, striving to emulate Him in all that we do. Our culture (paralleling the second law of thermo-dynamics) has seriously degenerated in decorum ... 

Learn to Fear God
John Reid asserts that without the fear of God, there is no wisdom. If we divorce God from knowledge, it will become an instrument of destruction. Fearing God is equated with obeying or complying with God's instructions, voluntarily measuring all our... 

New Heavens and New Earth
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.) ... 

Not Just a Better America
Richard Ritenbaugh, after pointing to some recent miraculous interventions of God on behalf of America, warns people not to conclude that God tacitly approves or condones the American way of doing things. God does not endorse the American system any ... 

Our Awesome Destiny
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... 

Rejoice in God's Feast
John Ritenbaugh, reflecting on Deuteronomy 28:63, suggests there is a context in which God rejoices in cursing or judgment. God's rejoicing does not always have to be attending to good or positive events, but sometimes in painful judgments. God can t... 

The 'Rest' of Hebrews 4
John Ritenbaugh, focusing upon the promise of rest alluded to in Hebrews 4;9, emphasizes the need to endure, persevere, overcoming doubts and unbelief- something many of our forebears (described in Hebrews 3 and 4) did not successfully attain. When w... 

The Covenants, Grace, and Law (Part 23)
In this twenty-third installment of the Covenants, Law and Grace series, John Ritenbaugh focuses upon two sets of verses (Colossians 2:16-18 and Galatians 4:9-10) which certain Protestant theologians have blasphemously charged that Paul was referring... 

The Covenants, Grace, and Law (Part 5)
In this fifth installment of the Covenants, Grace and Law series, John Ritenbaugh reminds us that under both the Old and New Covenants, refusal to keep to keep God's Law severs our relationship with Him. Like loving parents who give rules to their ch... 

The Future's So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades
Richard Ritenbaugh focuses on the critical need for the Millennium and the means by which God will bring it about. The Millennium will come about because Christ is faithful to rescue mankind from its own stupidity, putting an end to sin and rebellion... 

The Government of God
Mike Ford, reflecting on the myriad failed forms of governmental systems on the face of the earth (including 26 defunct world empires), focuses upon Israel's unfortunate and flawed choice of a monarchy in I Samuel 8, burdening the people with confisc... 

The Millennium
Taking a cue from an old country doctor, Herbert W. Armstrong observes that virtually everything God has created, mankind has misused and perverted. Though mankind boastfully prognosticates technological progress and a glorious future, it will not co... 

What We Can Learn from Booths
Richard Ritenbaugh reflects on the various nuances of the word booth (from old Norse), tabernacle (Latin), and sukkoth (Hebrew), all connoting temporary dwellings. God intends for us to learn daily lessons from living in booths during the Feast of Ta...
