Donation Drive February to April
A couple weeks ago we redirected the RaptureReady.com domain to the site’s new look. After eight long months of transferring thousands of files and creating hundreds of new templates, we reached the point where we were ready to move to a WordPress format. There are still thousands of older files waiting to be added to the site. We want to make sure the server could handle the traffic load before adding any more articles.
The reason for the move was driven by two important factors. The old site format was not compatible with mobile devices and search engines where penalizing our ranking for this lack of compatibility. With half the people visiting RR on a smartphone or some type of tablet, it became vital for us to reformat the site to accommodate small-screen technology. The move has dramatically improved our search visibility in sites like Goggle, Yahoo and Bing. The traffic for the top five key phrases, used by people to find RR in search engines has more than doubled.
Another factor pressing us to move was the growing age of our Windows based HTML files. In 2010, Microsoft stopped updating their “Expressions” Web editor. WordPress is constantly being updated and it runs 40 percent of all websites.
The popularity of this format allows us to take advantage of a huge variety of themes and plugs. One of these applications connects RR to social media sites which allows readers to share articles with their friends and family. I noticed last week one article was posted 700 times on Facebook. At times when prophetic events are very active, these resources can be posted and reposted numerous times.
The folks at Exodus Design added a very impressive feature to the bottom of the site. The yellow “translate” button will allow visitors to convert the text of the site into 104 languages. With 99 percent of the people visiting RR coming from English based IP addresses, this feature can be a very import tool for introducing a whole new field of people to the end-time gospel message.
We still working on improving the functionality of the site, and your input is very helpful. Within days of going live with the site, several people noticed that the articles didn’t change colors when previously clicked on. If you think of something that can improve the site, please send me your suggestions.
“Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation’” (2 Peter 3:3-4).
The day will eventually come when the Lord return to rapture away his bride. When that event takes place, there is going to be a huge scramble for prophetic information. Since RR is one of the largest and most search-relevant site related to the rapture on the net, a huge number of people will come here for answers.
The renovation of the site does have a few minor downsides. Regular updates to the software are required in order to keep the WordPress platform up to date with the current browsers and mobile devices and ahead of malware and virus attacks. The Xenon Server that now hosts RR is triple the price of our old server. The added costs are worth gaining the ability to reach a wider audience.
In order to maintain our progress, the site needs your financial support. I call on every Bible-believing Christian to help us maintain this beacon of hope. As the world literally disintegrates around us, I ask, “What other endeavor could possibly be of greater importance?”
We have three ways you can contribute to Rapture Ready and enable our efforts to expand our reach. You can send a financial gift via our postal address, you can make a one-time donation by a Credit card. And you can sign-up to make monthly donations via PayPal.

Six days into the presidency of Donald J. Trump, the humanistic gurus of the community known as the” Atomic Scientists” raised a ruckus. They lamented that we are within two and a half minutes of nuclear midnight. This is supposed to mean that global catastrophe is closer, perhaps, than it has ever been.
The atomic scientists’ perception as the unthinking–bumbling, or perhaps deliberate evil–of the new president make the doomsday clock time-setters nervous indeed.
Their joint declaration states, “Both his statements and his actions as president-elect have broken with historical precedent in unsettling ways. He has made ill-considered comments about expanding the U.S. nuclear arsenal. He has shown a troubling propensity to discount or outright reject expert advice related to international security, including the conclusions of intelligence experts. And his nominees to head the Energy Department and the Environmental Protection Agency dispute the basics of climate science.”
I have written in these commentaries for many months that the globalists’ key rallying point for trying to bring about the new world order they seek has been global warming. It is now called climate change. The luciferian rant is ratcheting up in every aspect of geopolitical atmospherics. However, we can expect, I have absolutely no doubt, an even more massive uptick in the assault. Climate change will be the spear tip of the campaign against God’s order of things as we move deeper into this administration.
The scientists in question collectively issued the accusation–highly disturbing in their view- that Trump, during the presidential campaign, talked about the need to increase and upgrade nuclear weapons capability. At the same time, they ranted that he spoke against their and the general, scientific community’s overwhelming consensus that climate change poses a threat beyond any other to the well-being of the planet.
All the while they’ve said nothing of former President Obama’s trying to anger Russia’s Vladimir Putin in the last months of the Obama administration–a thing that gave Putin fodder to proclaim the need to further increase the Russian nuclear arsenal.
Like in every other instance of hypocritical treatment by media and by the humanistic, scientific community, Obama gets a pass, while their collective ire descends full force on the one who defeated them in the American electoral process.
They ignored that international relations have deteriorated dangerously during the Obama years, rather noted fawningly that the former president in 2010 called for a nuclear-free world.
At the same time, they pointed out angrily their convoluted and quasi-accurate assessment that Trump suggested South Korea and Japan might consider developing nuclear weapons since North Korea and even China represent growing threats. They berated Trump and his six-day-old administration for having no “firm plans” to extend the controversial “Iran nuclear deal.”
The doomsdayers further castigated Trump and laid out their great fear his winning the American presidency has wrought.
“The political situation in the United States is of particular concern. The Trump transition team has put forward candidates for cabinet-level positions (especially at the Environmental Protection Agency and Energy Department) who foreshadow the possibility that the new administration will be openly hostile to progress toward even the most modest efforts to avert catastrophic climate disruption.”
Please believe me. This is not the last we will hear of the climate change madness.
Those of the “million woman march” and the “if- it-feels-good-do-it” crowd lost their “political fast-track to succeeding” they were previously on. These, as we have witnessed, are furious to the point of displaying mental instability But the globalists elite of this world, working to bring in Antichrist’s regime–even if unknowingly–are exceedingly more angry and determined that this president will be removed by hook or crook.
We already hear the volume increase on talk of impeaching him. There are more than mere hints that a coup d’état are in the wishful thinking of the angriest of the nation’s power brokers.
It does not, nor should it, surprise, that this level of rebellion is raising its ugly, serpent-like head. We only have to go to the great book of Revelation to understand the extremes to which fallen man will go when they don’t get their way.
There will be a rebellion of the most horrific magnitude ever at the end of the Millennium–the thousand-year reign of Jesus Christ. This uprising will occur, we are told through prophecy, after the rule of the only perfect Ruler in all of human history.
And, this gets us back to the Doomsday Clock scientists’ forewarning of Trump causing the destruction of the earth because of his declaring as lunacy their climate change mantra. Well, maybe it’s I–not Trump–who call it lunacy, but he adamantly opposes it–and them nonetheless.
The fact that Revelation 20:7-9 tells us there will be this last, satanically led rebellion in an attempt to dethrone the Creator of all things lets us know that there will still be a planet earth, despite President Donald Trump, and even seven years of Tribulation.
Also, it proves, in my estimation, the lunacy of the doomsdayers’ diatribe.
