After the Rapture #37 :: By Dick Ainsworth

The disappearance of Trump-Pence

Last night on July 9th President Trump announced Brett Kavanaugh as his pick for U.S. Supreme Court Justice much to the embedded anger and hatred of the liberal progressive left (or better known as the “Trump haters”).

As soon as Justice Kennedy announced his upcoming retirement, the satanically-inspired left threw a tantrum opposing President Trump’s pick long before the president ever announced his “long list” of 25 names. Naturally, the rage intensified as his list became shorter. Without blinking an eye, the progressive left made it known they were strongly opposed to anyone that President Trump nominated.

In last week’s article #36, I noted that I felt in these end-times that something would happen to remove the Trump-Pence administration from USA leadership. With Bible prophecy stating that all nations would rise against Israel in the end-times, I couldn’t see the present American leadership in place much longer. All means all. The USA would have to go back to the Obama-years type of governing to fulfill that prophecy.

This was easy for me to conclude. Donald J. Trump, Mike Pence and their staff and administration love America. Obama, Hilary, Pelosi, etc., don’t. Those that argue that need to realize that Fidel Castro loved Cuba! Do you get my point?

My first thought was that the rapture of Christ’s church would remove many inside the White House, leaving a vacuum to be filled by left-behind evil people who would soon join forces with the coming antichrist.

But I also considered the intense hatred the socialist left had for this administration, and look at their building-up of violence, riots, injuries, deaths, etc., they have caused since the 2016 election. It appears to me that any group of people who were comfortable with the death of 60,556,907 (over 60 million) unborn babies (as of July 9, 2018) since the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, they could eliminate a few more people without blinking an eye. Fact is, in their distorted evil frame of mind, they think they would be doing America a great service by cleansing or cleaning out the present White House. The left has gone completely mad.

The liberal progressive left is passionate about killing defenseless unborn babies, plus their efforts to convert the USA into a homosexual LGBT nation from coast to coast. This is a viable plan for them especially considering all of the George Soros money being shoveled into the socialist left-wing agenda and related projects.

I did come under criticism last week for suggesting that President Trump might have confessed his past sins to God. They reminded me that during his campaign he said he wasn’t sorry for anything and hasn’t made any public statement contrary to that since. I remember him saying that, and I really winced at the time.

But they did acknowledge that President Trump, since his election, has surrounded himself and his staff with a good list of Christian pastors, teachers and spiritual advisors. So I believe they have surely influenced a religiously rigid president because he appears to me as the type of person who listens to people. And it is reported that he frequently calls for prayer inside the White House. I’ll bet that really sends the secular humanists out the door and frantically climbing the trees?

My thoughts on that is he doesn’t need to make a public announcement about that (even though it might be a good thing for his base and potentially new followers if he would) as that is something personal between him and his Creator God that he can do “in his closet” (Matthew 6:6).

So they don’t know that he did, and I don’t know that he didn’t?

Some experts say Brett Kavanaugh could be voted upon by the U.S. Senate by early October. I have both a Democrat and a Republican senator in my state. Just before the senate votes, I plan to write both senators that I will not vote for anyone who opposes Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. I urge all of you to do the same in your state. We need to flood the Senate with positive Kavanaugh support hopefully before the mid-term elections.

This Supreme Court appointment is very important, but more senators and representatives are needed to support Trump’s overall plan for America. He is losing too many good proposals and legislative efforts. He needs the votes.

To show you how stupid and controlled by Satan many of the Democrat legislators are, there have been over 60.5 million abortions in the USA since Roe vs Wade was passed in 1973. That is 45 years ago, which means that approximately 27 million of those aborted babies would now be of voting age and paying taxes. There would be no need to open borders to illegal aliens to register them to vote, but the liberals are killing off much of their possible voting base. Plus, think of all the tax revenue they are losing through abortions of the so far 27 million? We all know how liberals love to spend and waste tax dollars. They continue to shoot themselves in the foot, yet they don’t feel a thing!

Whenever I hear people like Hilary Clinton, Maxine Waters, etc., spew out their angry political nonsense (“diarrhea of the mouth”), the thought comes into my mind that those people “have snakes in their heads!”

Medical needs in the wilderness

Once the 7-year tribulation period begins, those left behind who are out in the wilderness will need their own do-it-yourself makeshift hospitals and medical clinics. You won’t be able to call 911 for an ambulance or be admitted into a hospital without the 666 mark. So here are some tips and pointers to help you make your own office calls in your cave:

Learn the 2,000-year-old art of acupuncture (naturopathic medicine). It is respected in today’s medical community. The U.S. Air Force started teaching “battlefield acupuncture” to their forces in 2009. A free 29-lesson acupuncture course is available on-line at:

Also another free course at: www.elotus,org/tcm-wisdom-tube

Besides learning the process, you would also want to stock up on the supplies (like pins, needles, disinfecting and cleansing supplies, etc.) needed, plus an acupuncture how-to manual.

In Matthew 2:11 we read of the Magi (three wise men from the east) bringing gifts of gold, myrrh and frankincense to their newborn king. The gold was just gold but the frankincense and myrrh had multiple uses, including a perfume for the body or household.

But its medical uses were many, especially in a time when the medical profession wasn’t as advanced as in modern days; so home remedies were developed and used. This is under the title of “essential oils.”

Myrrh had a wide range of medical uses including inflamed gums (gingivitis), loose teeth, canker sores, hemorrhoids, bed sores, wounds, abrasions, boils, ulcers, colds, coughs, asthma, lung congestion, arthritis, pain relief, cancer, leprosy, spasms, syphilis, etc.

Frankincense can be used to relieve chronic stress and anxiety, pain, inflammation, to boost immunity, speed up wound healing, help prevent infections, etc.

Two sources for general uses and sources of supplies, instruction manuals, etc., are: and

Wilderness Survival info

I will give you a brief summary of some wilderness survival books that don’t take up a lot of space in a Bug-Out pack, which details medical remedies from what we call “weeds” growing wild. There are many recipes on how to prepare healthy foods (such as cattails, etc.) and the many edible plants found in the wilderness with color photos to help the reader identify the various plants, shrubs and trees. These books are available on Amazon or you can Google the titles with the author’s name and buy direct.

I would suggest that you pack each book in a self-sealing baggie to protect it from the elements. Some of the authors were in military special forces while others have taken information handed down through the generations of their families and put it in book form.

“The Book of Lost Remedies” was written by Claude Davis ( and chronicles the written notebook of battlefield and wilderness living in the pioneer and frontier days by Davis’ grandfather. It also contains a lot of other survival information. Cost $37.00. He also has a free email newsletter upon your request.

“Bush Craft 101” by David Canterbury costs about $10.00 and is a field guide to the art of wilderness.

“The Survival Handbook” by Colin Towell is under $5.00 a copy.

“SAS Survival Guide” by John “Lofty” Wiserman sells for $21.00.

You crazy uncles should Google the book title and author to read the descriptions and contents plus the reviews on each before buying. It doesn’t cost anything to look!

Those of you that are left behind need to each (in your 2 or 3 organizing committee) sit down and read each book and then swap books until you have all read each book. Sort of like taking a crash course and cramming the night before the big test the next day. Only your “next day” might be seven years long!

Another thing you crazy uncles can be doing now to help the left behind survive when their time comes is start making up jerky and pemmican to store away. It has a long shelf life. Some say pemmican can last up to 50 years. But we are mainly concerned with 7 years. I ran some “how to” info in articles #7 and #30. Or you can Google “pemmican recipes.” Ten pounds of pemmican by itself can keep a person well-nourished and alive at full strength for 16 days. Eaten with other food (vegetables, fruits, grain, etc.), the ten pounds of pemmican will last a person over 40 days. And you don’t need to eat it every day. Remember, you should also have a large supply of One-a-Day supplements.

Prayer Requests

I’m requesting that those of you seeking prayer update your prayer requests when needed. You may want to add to or take away from, so I depend on you to keep the prayer list current.

Please note that I frequently rerun prayer requests for good reason. (1) Some readers might have missed it the first time it ran. (2) It never hurts to pray for the same things over again. God does not get weary with too many prayers. (3) The more we pray, the farther down the hole we stuff Satan. All prayer gets good results. There is no such thing as too much prayer.

I would also appreciate it if those of you who send in prayer requests would get back with me when you see good results from the group prayer. Just a quick email. I like to run these results as it is an encouragement to those who are praying for you and yours, plus it also encourages others to send in prayer requests as they see others getting positive results. And those total strangers praying for you appreciate your “thank you” and will pray again and maybe even harder.

We are at war with Satan and we can’t give him any kind of edge. The Holy Spirit is on our side. He can’t handle the power of the Holy Spirit.

Email your prayer requests to:

ELAINE BARNES emails, “Dear Dick, First I’d like to say thank you for setting up this site.

(Dick’s comment: Thanks, but I didn’t set up the site. It was the Godly folks at [RR] who allow me to submit articles which they post. Aside from their site being a Biblical goldmine of accurate end-times information and guidelines, they allow me to include the prayer sections. I would urge all prayer warriors to offer prayers for those in my articles but also go to their home page (if you haven’t already), and on the left-side column entitled “Rapture Ready’s Most Active Pages,” go down the column’s list to the 5th page titled “Prayer Center” and it’s RR’s listing of prayer requests that is updated and made current every Sunday).

Elaine continues, “I will pray for you, your ministry and the brothers and sisters who have asked for prayers for their loved ones.

“Secondly, I too have family members that have rejected the Truth of God’s saving grace and the mercy He gives. I ask for softening of the hearts and open ears for my brothers Kevin and Ken. Please pray that the teaching they received as children will be remembered and they will accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

“Thirdly, I ask for prayers for my children, Emily and George, that they will open their hearts to the careers and spouses God has prepared for them. I pray that God will continue to use us in His service until we go home to meet Him in the clouds.

“God bless you.

Please help me pray she listens to the Holy Spirit’s leading and guidance!”


PLEASE PRAY for all the people and pastors who are FALLING AWAY from God’s Word in today’s churches. Pray that the Holy Spirit will turn them around in the right direction to follow God instead of chasing the cares of the world.

Also pray for those who don’t know the true God at all and those who follow false gods, that they will know the truth and come to His Saving Grace.

Pray for all those who are witnessing to the lost and unsaved people of this world living in darkness, that the protective hand of God will guard them.

“Kali in Sydney (Australia)”

EVERYONE PLEASE PRAY for all those who do not know God’s word and promises and that the barriers of Satan will be torn down and Jesus’ light and truth will shine through before the rapture. Help those who live in darkness but don’t realize it yet, to see the light.

KAY CREED is requesting prayer for her daughter and three grandchildren that they will come to know JESUS before it is too late.

Their names are Audrey (daughter), Malcomb (16), Emmett (13), and Nile (11). So every time you say “AMEN” you have remembered this earnest plea for their Salvation in JESUS before it’s too late.”

Audrey’s husband and the kid’s daddy (Joel Olson) died suddenly and mysteriously while out of the country (in England) 6½ years ago. Details at:

Or you can Google: Dr. Joel Olson PhD ….. Political Science Professor (agnostic and liberal) NAU. Flagstaff Arizona.

Joel was also one of Kayla Mueller’s professors at NAU (maybe you remember her being held hostage in Syria ….. and was killed by Islamic terrorists that took her hostage and held her for years while they tortured her to death).

Kay’s daughter (Audrey age 48) made a profession of faith when she was eleven but turned away from The LORD in her 20’s and is not raising the children to know the LORD. “My heart is breaking!

“She has completely rejected The FAITH, me and all of my values. Nothing about her life from that time forward makes any sense to me. I am just desperate for them to come to KNOW JESUS IS LORD and SAVIOR! …. I know our time here is short.


“Kay Creed”

SANDY MERRIFIELD is requesting prayers for God to continue to strengthen her family’s walk with the Lord and also her own greater strength and peace in her own personal walk with the Lord.

She is also requesting prayer for all of our family members in Christ worldwide who are being persecuted in His Name. Pray for strength, comfort and peace for all of them.

COLLEEN urgently requests your prayers for her lost family. She writes, “Please pray that my 2 nieces and 8 nephews, 3 brothers-in-law, one ex-sister-in law, one brother and 4 sisters will have a revelation of who Jesus Christ is, that they will accept Him as their Savior. Please pray that they will have others that know Christ who will come into their lives.

“Please pray that each one of them will have their eyes opened to the truth of who Jesus Christ is and their need for Him. Please pray that my husband will have a hunger to follow Christ.

“Please pray that God will cure my health issues so that I might have the physical strength to serve God and seek after Christ. Please pray that my heart will be surrendered to Him and that I will be led by God and His Spirit.

“Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I have lost my focus and will to even know how to be a testimony in these times.

“In Christ alone.


(Dick’s comments) Colleen hasn’t lost the focus and will as to how to be a testimony for Christ. People who have lost their focus and will can’t write a prayer such as what Colleen just did. Satan is the author of confusion, and it is he who tricks people into believing they have lost their focus and will. If Colleen wasn’t doing God’s Will, Satan wouldn’t be battling her so fiercely trying to convince her otherwise and for her to just shut-up. But Colleen is a true prayer warrior who doesn’t let illness and physical ailments stop her from serving God and being a strong witness.

KATHY FRAZIER is requesting prayers for several of her family members. Her 87-year-old Dad is not saved and has a very hard heart towards anything to do with God.

“Also please pray for my older brother and his family, my younger brother and his family, that they all will come to Christ. And also my daughter that she draws closer to Jesus.

“And please continue to pray for my Mom, who has been diagnosed with a rare cancer three years ago, and so far has been in remission (she’s outlived the prognosis by 2½ years!). The most recent CT scan came back clear of cancer! However she does have a 7mm spot on her liver that will be looked at again in 3-6 months, but the doctors are confident it is benign. I love my Mom so very much. Please pray for her.

“And please pray for my husband’s parents who are not saved either. Please pray for them!

“Thank you so very much, prayer warriors! You are so appreciated.

“In Christ

“Kathy Frazier”

SHERRY asks for your prayers for salvation and deliverance from drugs for her adult son …… His name is Joe. And also for her daughter, Amy, for her relationship with the Lord be restored, and for her healing from several health issues she has been having.

Also pray for the salvation of Sherry’s two grandsons.

“Thank you and God Bless all of you.”

RHONDA WILLIAMS is requesting your prayers for the unsaved members of her family which includes her two grown sons (Daniel and Charles), her two granddaughters (Amiyah and Saniyah) and three sisters and a brother (Faye, Vickie, Sharon and Greg). Please pray for them all.

Also, she has nine (9) nieces and nephews who do not know or accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. So Rhonda is requesting prayer for all of them by name.

Brother and sister Christopher and Misty need Christ in their life. Misty claims to be Wiccan. Also pray for nephew Jake. Brothers Travis and James also with brothers and sisters Tabitha and Matthew, and Steven and Christine.

Please pray for God’s Blessing over Pastor Param and wife Asha’s youngest daughter Amulya and her husband Solomon in their recent marriage. This is Deevena’s younger sister. May God Bless the entire family ministry as they continue to serve Jesus during their many hardships and stumbling blocks placed upon them by the devil.

Also pray for their safety as they travel to remote areas to preach the Gospel to young and old alike. May God guide and protect them with his protective hand against the evil that confronts them continuously. May God protect their street pastors who witness on the streets of their cities bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and unbelievers. Pray for the widows, orphans and others in need of God’s Blessings. And also for their youth Bible class groups.

You can contact and get more information on this ministry from Sister Deevena at or Pastor Param at

CYNTHIA is most grateful for everyone’s prayers for her family, and she reports that her daughter is now getting close to Christ Jesus. Please pray for this to continue and for Cynthia’s atheist son’s eyes and heart to be opened to the gospel of Christ. There are also health concerns for her daughter and concerns for her grandson as well, who is unhappy with his atheist dad and his live-in girlfriend. God knows all the details involved, and He loves prayers.

Also, Cynthia’s husband had a heart attack last week. The doctors found blocked arteries. They opened one and put a stint in it. But they say the others are 75% to 90% blocked, and he will need to have a heart bypass within the next few weeks. Please pray for him.

THE USA NEEDS GUIDANCE from God’s Holy Spirit to lead many lost people to God’s Saving Grace. The president and his family along with the vice-president and his family need protection from Satan and their deceiving ways as our nation’s leadership tries to lead this country back closer to God. The president’s administration and staff are under continuous attack from the earthly forces of the devil and need God’s help to battle through these evil forces to do what is righteous for Americans in the eyes of God (Daniel 2:21). So please pray for the entire Trump administration as they try to follow and enforce God’s Laws and Commandments.

Especially pray for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his family; they are under attack from Satan in a relentless display of hate as they try to serve the Lord.

Also pray for America’s many enemies and adversaries within the USA and from the four corners of the earth, that they will come to Jesus Christ and their hearts will be changed for the good, and away from evil.

MATT JACKSON requests prayer for the Rohr family and their daughter Rachel as they are practicing Catholics. He also wishes the Lord would find a way for him to come into contact with this family again so he can continue to witness the ways of the Lord to them.

DICK wants to express his sincere appreciation to those who have prayed for the salvation of his family and his improving health. Some of his family members are really coming alive spiritually and it is easy to witness to them now and answer their questions. But please continue to pray for them as some are not on solid ground yet.

Dick is also requesting prayer for his long-time school classmate Jim Harris who has recently rejected Dick’s efforts at witnessing the Word of God to him. Pray for Ronald whom Satan has tricked into living in darkness yet not knowing it.

The doctors told Dick he is showing improvements health-wise. Pray his health will still improve as he has been taken off the antibiotics a month ago. Dick does not fear death as he knows eternal life awaits him. But he prays to God he can be raptured by Our Lord while still alive on earth rather than raptured out of the grave as he wants to do the Lord’s Work up until the very second Christ calls him home (Philippians 1:23-24).

DICK is also requesting prayer for his brother-in-Christ Rusty Wagner who is due to serve his time in a Pennsylvania State Prison on June 24, 2020. He was a real hard case for many years but found Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior seven years ago and has turned his life around. Pray that he will pass his GED and get his diploma. Also pray that his sister Nancy and brother Brian will again connect with him as family.

PAULA PARSONS is requesting more prayer for her good friend Nicky White. Previous prayer has been answered as Nicky has been taken off of chemo; her large tumor has shrunk and now she is on radiotherapy. Nicky wants to thank everyone for their previous prayers.

Paula is also very thankful that your prayers have led her dad Tony to finally accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Continue to pray for him so as to help him grow stronger in his faith.

Her sister-in-law Val is now going to church and is asking questions about the Lord; she finds a huge peace there but has yet to accept Jesus into her heart. Please pray for Val that the Holy Spirit will guide her down this straight and narrow road to eternal salvation in heaven.

Paula also wants to thank all who prayed for her daughter Rachel who is now a follower of Jesus Christ. Let her grow rapidly in her faith and become a strong prayer warrior for those who need prayer.

Rachel and Paula both are requesting prayer for the health and saintly well-being of Paula’s mum/Rachel’s grandmother who is Catholic. She has yet to come to Jesus as her Savior; thus, is still suffering violent dreams and haunting nightmares along with intense fears of death, all of which is placed in her mind by Satan as she sleeps. When she awakes, Satan has placed the fears of death in her heart and soul. Pray that she will soon accept Jesus and that Our Lord and His restraining Holy Spirit will place barriers around her to block all of Satan’s evil tricks and deceptions. Our Lord will protect those who belong to Him.

Also both of them truly seek your prayers in that Rachel’s job opportunities remain solid and growing.
