The Kingdom of God vs the Kingdom of Heaven--Pete Ruckman



This sermon is provided here as an outlet to broadcast good, sound, Bible teachings.

The website for Dr. Ruckman's ministry is I strongly advise if you wish to purchase any materials of Dr. Ruckman's that you contact his bookstore.

I only post sermons. The classroom lectures, radio commentaries, and Sunday School lessons should be ordered through his ministry.

FULL DISCLOSURE: In the 1970s, my parents ran a cassette ministry in a tiny church in a small town in Ohio. As I recall, they had thousands of hours of good, sound, fundamental, Bible preaching that they distributed.

Sadly, I grew up, backslid, and lived my life for several decades not thinking about what they had done. They have since went home to be with the Lord and their entire collection was lost.

EXCEPT...the Lord didn't forget what they had done. Ecclesiastes 11:1 says, " Cast thy bread upon the waters; for thou shall find it after many days."

Finally, the Lord got me straightened out. When I surrendered to serve him, a lot--a WHOLE lot--of these sermons came back to me. Some more than three times from three separate sources who had never met the other people or me even. (This after receiving no messages while I was backslid!) I believe that the Lord wants me to broadcast these messages. What better way today than the internet?

Therefore, I present free of charge, these non-copyrighted messages. I am not affiliated with the speakers. Any statements made by these speakers are their own opinion which I may or may not agree with. (But sure, I probably do.) FURTHER, the speakers are not affiliated with each other and just because I have posted two speakers does not mean that any relationship between the two should be inferred.

FURTHER, I am aware that some of these men have had sin issues after the original broadcast of these messages. I assume that Lord knew the sin of each man before they did it and has decided to use them anyway. The fact that I have been given these functioning tapes (some of these are more than 40 years old and some more than three times) I take as a sign that the Lord wants me to post them. IF YOU DON'T LIKE A PREACHER, DON'T LISTEN TO HIM.

FINALLY, as a service to those who do not have access to the internet, I will make a copy of requested sermon(s) for a modest donation. If you wish to donate to a specific preacher or ministry, I suggest you donate directly to them. While I do donate a portion of proceeds to certain speakers, many of these men have passed away. For those men, I give the proceeds to missions.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES will I provide copies of commentaries or class room type Bible studies without prior consent from the speaker.

See my website for further details.

God bless!
