Not sure what to say?

i began studying dr. ruckman's works in 1976. "mark of the beast" was the first book of his that i ever read (looking up all the scripture references that were given. i learned so much about the antichrist that i began reading all of his books. he was the biggest influence in my christian life. he will be one of the few ministers of the 20th century who now stands in the company of paul, peter, james and john.

thank you sir..eternally grateful to Christ saving me because of a man like you..
from England..

So sorry to hear of your moving on to much better things. You are missed here.
I am sure you graduated with high honors.

I first heard Dr. Peter Ruckman in 1971 in a Bible Conference at Trinity Baptist Church, Jacksonville, FL. He was preaching with Dr. Lester Roloff. He drew a picture and preached "Behold the Man" and I will never forget it. I have read many of his books and he has influenced my life and my knowledge of the King James Bible like no other preacher has done. I am sorry he is gone from us, but I know we will see him again one day in Heaven.


What a wonderful teacher, Drawing men to Christ was the best program on television, Peter knew how to grab your attention and keep you interested with his teaching while drawing a picture of his story. I love and miss him, I know I will see him soon. The Rapture is coming soon!!!!

One of my favorite teachers.

Psalm 119:139-142 KJV
[139] My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words. [140] Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. [141] I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts. [142] Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

Modern Bible versions almost destroyed my faith in God until I learned the truth. Dr. Ruckman's stance on the KJV was and still is the greatest positive influence in my Christian life. The church I attend is a direct result of his ministry and my pastor was taught by him. I thank God for brother Ruckman. He was a faithful servant who is now enjoying his rewards.

As a teenager I attended a typical "Baptist Church" that REJECTS DISPENSATIONAL TRUTH so I never learned it there. From Ruckman I learned about how to righty divide the Bible dispensationally,(Moderately) and I learned the KJV is Gods preserved word, No doubt this kept me from many deceptions, I also learned from Ruckman that although he rubbed off on me in little in preaching style, I should not try to be him. The world is a worse place without him, be "He being dead yet...
