        It’s so nice to see so many old friends on here from our original RITAN site. Hello to everyone and may God Bless each and every one of you.

          Definitely!  I was wondering if those that have no pics of themselves or their names wouldn’t mind posting their names?  I got to know many like Jeff McGowen, Dawn Logan, and others on FACEBOOK but I am not sure who is who when they have another name.  I wasn’t a part of RITAN until the last year or so before they closed down.  Thank you all! :heart:

                Becky Emerick. I didn’t post too much before, and I don’t know what my User Name was on the old Ritan site either. Maybe IndyMom? I use that a lot.  Sorry – but I’ve been a tiny bit more active on the FB page.

                I love the intimacy of this board. It feels like home. :)

                              Hi RitaMay, I used to be LUFJIR on the old RITAN site back in the Lisa Leenie days and before. I go by Tammie now, found RITAN again in around 2016, I think, and never joined FB as I dropped my account. So nice to see old and new friends again. :prayer-hands:

                                  Pleased to meet you all!  For those that don’t know, I’m Denis!

                                  How appropriate that we can know each other on a first name basis.  As we shall all soon be meeting face to face!

                                  Again, it’s been a pleasure and honour fellowshipping with each of you these many years!

                                  I’ll be starting a line for free hugs, once we are home.

                                        Billy, can I just say that you bless my heart weekly when you make sure JDs video is posted. Although I subscribe to him, watching his Thursday teachings as well, it is a blessing.
                                        TR – Got it, hugs all around and don’t forget our tea time that was planned for long ago…..

                                        HH – keep those poems from the heart coming for just a bit longer brother!
                                        Watchman and Boulder – we are very close now, hang in there!

                                        Geri – better get that timer for your glue gun! :mdrmdr:

                                        Mods – awesome job on the site! May Gods richest blessings be poured out on your hearts for building such a great family, for such a time as this! :prayer-hands:  Keep looking up, praying for the lost, keep the wicks  trimmed, wedding garments on, and oil in the lamp, the Bridegroom comes!!! :prayer-hands:

                                            Tammie, thank you so much for your expertise in the medical field as we try to make heads or tails of these harmful vaccines coming and know they are not kosher (aka good for us).  I know you will soon be hanging up your white medical lab coat knowing you won’t be needing it in heaven … but perhaps you will be dusting it off for use again during the millennium for those who get injured?  Or will it be … simply brewing  just  tea will be enough to heal from all diseases or injuries?  (ahem … for those who are diehard coffee drinkers … no mention of beans in this verse.  Are you getting worried? B-)

                                            Revelation 22:1. “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”

                                                Thanks Geri, jacket on a hook, remember I lean toward using those tea leaves…. :mdrmdr: not to read, but certainly to drink :mdrmdr:   I agree, there is so much in natural oils, leaves, even mudd and mushrooms etc….. tea tree oil is amazing for many things …. Israel is now boasting the healing affects of Frankincense, truth to that! A bit of chamomile and honey are great for a good night sleep, Echinacea, and the list goes on …. we have actually used most of the natural things God gave us to make meds …. think how penicillin was created … I could go on about the usage of molds, fungus, and mushrooms but I will spare you as we should all soon be going up :prayer-hands:

                                                  My user name never changed, still 2ndcoming. I want to use 2ndcoming on facebook, but they didn’t let me. So I chose Jordan River instead. The reason I chose this name, it’s because Jesus was baptized in river Jordan.

                                                    I have lost my job since last December. I am unemployed since. Money wise is no good. Not sure why God puts me in this situation. There must be a purpose. May be He wants me to spend more time and focus His words re the end time?

                                                          Well, if I didn’t lose my job last December, I would have lost my job this March because there was a massive lay off in my industry due to Covid-19. Many of my co-workers and friends faced the same situation. Anyway, I can spend more time now on bible prophecy and draw more unsaved to Jesus by sounding the alarm how close is the rapture and second coming.

                                                          i had same user name on old RITAN and was only briefly on FB RITAN cuz i closed my account for like the 3rd, but this time FINAL time (for a long time now) and have been incredibly relieved to never have returned…i considered adding a pic since on here i think they are bigger and i feel a little left out with my ugly grey profile, but i just don’t really want to – i like talking with some anonymity for multiple reasons one including helping me keep a focus more on God than on me…but i really actually enjoy hearing about who y’all are and how God is working in your lives- wish i had that more with people in person- but hopefully very soon we will be praising God in person with the entire Church from all over the world- how amazing!

                                                          i did put my initials on my poem type things i wrote, so i guess that’s more personal…”TKP”…i don’t want to be stand offish or s’thing and i’m not ashamed of what i say on here

                                                          love in Christ to all my brothers & sisters in Christ

                                                            On a separate but related note, I would just like to say that I personally have been blessed and encouraged by many who actively post on the FB site.  While I am not active there as a poster and prefer to post here, I still find much value on the FB site and read it frequently.  Clearly, that site reaches many that this site will not.  Jesus is being glorified in both places and in that I will rejoice!

I had been offline for a while and was happy to find this new site with all the people that I used to know. I enjoy reading what you guys write. It gives me lots of hope. I love you all.

                                                                            I was Ruth at the old RITAN (I think there were two of us…mine might have had numbers after it, I can’t be sure :scratch: ). Recognizing a lot of names here. If memory serves, I joined the old site somewhere around 2008-ish and stayed until it was closed. Never really participated in the FB group. It’s nice to see LisaLeenie mentioned. I miss her!

                                                                            Thank you so much for recreating this site. I sure was sad to see it go.

I don’t remember if I posted but was here reading watching and praying. Found Jesus at 8 years old. At 13 through Hal Lindsey learned Jesus is coming and have been watching since. 65 now and still watching. I am Janice and it is soon folks.

                                                                                                          I used to post here at the old site and see many names that I remember from those days. I plan to peek in from time to time again and look forward to interacting with others who are awaiting our Lord to call us up soon.
                                                                                                          Blessings,

I joined in 2011 I think. We have survived perilous times and different formats for our online connection thru RITA. We are now living at the end of the age of grace and sticking it out to the very end (beginning) together. The end of the age of grace is so exciting for me, to actually see bible prophecy unfolding at warp speed and know I may have the opportunity to prove my faith. It is so sad to see how many are blind of what is really going on. I want to thank each and every one of you for your support and prayers over the years. I will close with “See You In The Air Soon” and “Perhaps Today”

But by God’s grace, this momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond our understanding…..All for Jesus because He gave His all for us. :prayer-hands:

When I was in my early twenties I would start each day with a cup of coffee and RITAN while my baby and toddler ran around. I joined the Facebook group but it was never quite the same. I’m so glad I went searching again and found you all. Your names are all so familiar!
