After the Rapture #54 :: By Dick Ainsworth

After the Rapture – Part 54

Opening Note:

Since I have yet to get an average grasp on today’s technological age, I am slow to even incorporate the simplest of functions in my article writing. In other words, I’m “computer stupid”!  But thanks to three grown and educated kids who come to my aid in such matters, I now know how to establish my own links to be included in my articles!

Article #53 was devoted entirely to an updated and improved directory of the first 52 “After the Rapture” series articles with links to each individual article. I also rewrote the brief descriptions of contents for each article, making it both easier and quicker to find the article(s) you might want.

I did the same with the “Pre-Rapture Prayer List” series, and you will find their list of links at the end of this article plus starting in the upcoming Pre-Rapture Prayer List #10.

I was urged to do this by several readers who pointed out to me how difficult it was to scroll through miles and miles of Rapture Ready archives to find articles when all they needed to do is punch in a link. Many of you informed me that they print off hard copies of the articles and place them in left-behind boxes. Some of you are new to the series and have to go back in the archives so as to catch up on the complete series. This should make it much easier and quicker.

Plus the Prayer List series will now be read, prayed over and collected for future individual and group prayer. Satan will definitely hate that!

So be it! Now I am less “computer stupid”?!

Looking ahead to perfect peace and happiness

We are presently trapped in this hellhole of a planet that we now reside in. Many people believe earth is just a great place to live and this place is going to keep getting better and better. Wait until the tribulation period hits the scene and then do another opinion poll after Satan and the antichrist are in nearly complete control. (God is always in complete control of everything. He is just allowing mankind (under Satan’s leadership) to run everything without Him (God) for 7 years, which will be part of His bucket-of-water wake-up call (see article #52).

I believe too many earthlings keep looking for a little skinny red varmint with a tail, carrying a red pitchfork. Satan is a fallen angel which God’s Word describes as being created as the most beautiful and brightest star. All angels (good and fallen) are spirits that can be either invisible or take on a visible form. Fallen angels and other satanic imps try to influence humans, and humans can be demon-possessed, until God puts a stop to it and puts them in their proper place. That’s a lot of hogs! (Mark 5:11-14; Luke 8:30-33).

All of the evil people we are in contact with regularly either face-to-face or through one of the many forms of media (books, newspapers, TV, movies, gatherings, etc.), political leadership, entertainment industries, falling-away churches, etc., are possessed by at least one evil spirit or demon per individual.

Those of us who are saved also have demons constantly tempting us with sin, but since all of our sins were forgiven at the cross, these demons have no success against the Holy Spirit. We belong completely to Jesus, and they can’t pry any of us from His hand.

The midterm elections are over with and the damage has been done. CNN’s Jim Acosta’s “performance” and showboating is in the past even though its foul odor lingers on in our memories and our world. This environment’s foul odors will continue and grow stronger as long as Our Lord tarries.

Satan is one slick dude as he is in control of most of the world and its people’s hearts, souls and minds. How else can the people be so wrong about so much yet believe they are so right? They believe without batting an eye that they are right in believing abortion, homosexuality, Jew-hating, etc., is a good thing. This can happen when their conscience has been crossed-out and their only mindset is Satan’s; thus they have nothing to compare it with. No more “good vs. evil” debate anymore as that requires a conscience.

The chief devil has convinced many people that the good things in God’s creation are evil while all of Satan’s dressed-up vile sin is a good thing. Satan now provides the conscience for the world (Isaiah 5: 20). And when you drive God and His Bible out of our schools, the public place, the entertainment world, much of our political leadership and even many of our churches, Satan creates for himself a spiritual monopoly. That is why they are chipping away at eliminating the 1st and 2nd amendments of our Constitution – to stop free speech and freedom of religion while replacing it with their one-sided, one-way speech and Satan’s religion (orchestrated by his false prophet), and then taking away the means (gun control) to defend those rights along with ourselves and our families.

Satan doesn’t stop there. He stops all voluntary prayer at all high school ball games, forcing Christian- owned businesses in a court of law to cater to homosexual weddings, make taxpayers pay for welfare abortions, pack Sunday calendars full of golf courses, kid’s soccer leagues, widespread riverboat gambling, etc., to compete with and drive down church attendance, etc.

But many people would still attend church, so Satan corrupts the pastors and seminaries with prosperity gospels and other teachings that tickle the ears with feel-good words outside of and foreign to the Word of God.

His plan, that is working quite well, is to eliminate God and His Word from the people’s conscience and even push it to the extreme where the mention of the Name of Jesus Christ is mocked, ridiculed and blasphemed by the masses on an ever-increasing basis. So, once again, he sells the lie that good is evil and evil is good (Isaiah 5:20).

It is no wonder that the crazy uncles of the remnant church of Jesus Christ still on earth have their hands full trying to lead those who will be left behind away from Satan’s tribulation period. The truth of the matter is that those left behind have no idea of what they are getting themselves into.

What a great place heaven will be (the ultimate understatement). We don’t know a lot about heaven, so many of us just use our imaginations and speculate a lot. Anyway, I like surprises!

The Bible tells us a lot more about hell, which I believe is a good thing. The Bible is 100% truth, so the more it tells me about hell, the better for me and the ones I witness the Gospel to.

We can definitely know the truthful realities of hell while we have our dreams of heaven. But the yardstick I use to try to measure heaven is that our perfect and righteous God and His perfect sinless Son reside there, and the only folks they allow in are those that are also sinless and perfect. That’s us even though I can’t imagine myself anywhere near being sinless and perfect. But at either our resurrection or at the rapture, we will become 100% new. Our old person will forever be gone and replaced forever with our new sinless person.

Think of that. To be in an eternity of infinite number of years (boundlessness) where time is discarded and never used again. There are no past years and no future. “Right now” in His perfect place will be forever. To never have another bad thought or utter another slur or insult at another person. We won’t notice other people’s faults and shortcomings, as they won’t have any. We will go through a never-ending eternal life never hearing a slur or insult or be on the receiving end of bad thoughts from others. We will be surrounded forever with hoards of sinless, perfect people with not one single bad apple in the bunch. There will be no one in heaven to steer clear of.

When God said in the Bible that all of our sins would be forgiven and forgotten, and when we entered into His Kingdom we would be changed and be like Christ, I believe we will also forgive ourselves and totally forget our past lives. We will then be new persons with new lives in a New Kingdom. Why should we have memories of our past sinful lives so we can forever regret the spiritual pain? God’s perfect plan for us is to erase the past life from our minds and hearts so we can live in eternity in perfect peace.

No lies, no sin, no arguments, no disagreements. No digging out caves, scavenging for food, hiding from satanic enemies, evading hungry and crazed animals, suffering from violent diseases, continuously in search of safe drinkable water, no temptations and lying trickery by and from Satan and his imps.

Instead, everyone will have a mansion, no villains or predators. And no boredom in the new perfect life. Everything in heaven is good, and God provides everything.

Wilderness Survival Tips

Since there are no medical clinics in the wilderness, self-medical supplies and know-how are very important. The following are some homemade antibiotic recipes. In this life when something goes wrong, the doctor gives you an antibiotic or a prescription for one. Out in the boonies you will have to make your own. Also here are some do’s and don’ts.

These recipe antibiotics need to be taken early in the morning before eating every day. At least one tablespoon a day. You do this no matter whether you are sick or not. By doing this regularly, it helps build up the immune system, so when you do get sick you have a better chance to heal and not die. The same holds true for your One-a-Day type of all-purpose vitamin supplement. Take one each day to avoid malnutrition from setting in. I covered this in a previous article but I’ll repeat it: I take one a day, and I get them in bottles of 200 per bottle. That amounts to 13 bottles that will last 7 years for one person.

I’m presently in poor health, so my present One-a-Day habit is to get me to the rapture, at which time I will no longer have a need for any type of pills whatsoever.

Some of the recipe ingredients can be grown by you in your wide-spread garden: Garlic, horseradish, ginger root, jalapeno chili peppers, and white onions. Your root cellar will be most valuable as will your solar dryer. Most of what you store ought to be in jars with tight-fitting lids in a dark, cool place (the cellar).

Ground turmeric will last 3 to 4 years in the cellar. Olive oil and apple cider vinegar also store well.

Crazy uncles can make up big batches of antibiotics in jars with tight-fitting lids and store in your basement, cellar, etc., to be left behind for the left behind. Be sure to leave a note or letter as to what and why those jars are left for them. If they don’t know what it’s for, they might pitch them.

You can buy minced or powdered onions and garlic that store well. Growing your own is best.

An easy antibiotic is simply fresh, chopped white onions and garlic in apple cider vinegar. Let set in dark cool place for 6 weeks before using.

There will be items like horseradish, garlic, etc., that you don’t care for but you need to get used to it. Hold your nose, gulp it down and get on with your survival plan!



  • ¼ cup of organic garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup of organic white onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup of fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons of horseradish, grated
  • 24 ounces of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of curcumin or turmeric powder
  • 2 large organic jalapeno peppers, stems removed, sliced in half lengthwise


In a large glass jar such as a Mason jar, add all ingredients except for the apple cider vinegar. Once everything is inside the jar, pour the apple cider vinegar over the top, leaving about one to 1.5 inches of space at the top. Close the jar and shake it for about 20 seconds. Place the jar in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight (such as a kitchen cabinet). Shake the jar once each day (or twice if you can remember) and allow it to steep for two weeks. You don’t need to put this in the refrigerator unless you live in the tropics! So it will hold up just fine in the boonies.

After two weeks, filter the liquid using cheesecloth into another glass container. Squeeze the cheesecloth to be sure that you are getting every last drop of antibiotic goodness!

That’s it! You might want to start another jar at this time so that even if everyone in your family should come down sick, you won’t run out.

Dosing Instructions:

For sore throats: Gargle with about a tablespoon twice each day

To strengthen the immune system: Start off slowly until you become accustomed to the taste. Rinsing your mouth afterwards with water will help cut down on any burning sensation from the chilies. Start with one teaspoon each day. Gradually increase the dose until you are consuming a shot-glass full each day.

To fight a cold or flu virus: Consume one teaspoon at least three times each day. If you have congestion, you might want to warm up a shot-glass full, breathe in the steam, then drink as much of it as you can.

This tonic is safe for pregnant women. This is not recommended for children under 10 unless they are used to eating spicy foods.

Keep in mind that this is very potent and spicy hot! If you are sensitive to spicy foods, you might want to mix this with some water or add it to some soup to help tone it down.


Reader Feedback

Dear brother Dick,

I’ve been passing out that living waters tract for some time now too. Amazing to read of your adventures… My wife gives out 2 or 3 hundred million-dollar tracts every Saturday at a huge flea market here in Charleston, SC. Lotta times at the store I give the cashier one and say keep the change…or thanks for coming in to work today…or here’s an all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii, uh, I mean Heaven which is a million times better than Hawaii. Your idea of putting them in library books or magazines is great! Walmart is prime acres to place them too. I enjoy reading your articles, Dick.

(Article #8 is on tract-distribution ministry)



I appreciate so much your articles. I have told my husband for some time now that anyone finding themselves left behind should as fast as possible…like the next day…and if possible…take a long 7yr. trip to Jordan….Hang out close to Petra. Now I was half joking but really it might be a viable plan.

Anyway, thank you for your great efforts.

What a Savior!

Regards, Rita Struik

(Dick’s reply) An excellent plan even though Petra might be loaded up with Jews who are finally seeing the light, so he’d better hurry and get in line. But better yet is if your hubby is to go in the rapture!


Once the Antichrist is in power and has enacted the program to mark his people, most Christians will be rounded up and killed.  The technological abilities of the Armies of the Antichrist will be superior to anything we see today. How they search for dissidents will be more robotic and less genuine manpower. AI (Artificial Intelligence) will be a big part of this system.

Also the Mark will probably enhance a person’s intelligence and their physical abilities. Every non-believer is going to want this mark, and I believe it’s because it will alter their DNA. The Lord will not rapture or accept anyone into heaven with DNA Tainted by Satan. So it was in Noah’s day; so it will be in the not-so-distant future.

Any Christian who wishes to remain undetected will need to be a master at deceiving these devices and these marked hybrid men.

Third world countries with nothing to offer the Antichrist are probably the best place to hide. If America fractures, then there could be places that are less under the boot heel of the Antichrist than others. I feel if they (Antichrist) focus on an area, their techno advantages will ensure they will find you.

Let’s face it. If you are left behind, you are a fugitive without even the Holy Spirit to keep you warm at night. Dying will be a blessing. Living will be like hell on earth.

The Alaskan wilderness might be very dangerous, but the whole world will be just as dangerous. Once the Antichrist is in power, there are no safe places. Just places where your chances of being killed are not 100% there, just 90%.

The world will be so dangerous that it will be like you’re being chased by a bear and you run into a shelter to escape. While trying to catch your breath, you are then bitten by a snake. Yeah, Amos is painting a pretty dire world there.

Folks need to realize the chances of surviving the Tribulation will be slim to none. I would give any person a 1% chance of survival. And even that one percent is probably too high.

Greg Spears

(Dick’s reply) Greg made several good points in his email, so let’s discuss them further.

The tribulation period world of antichrist will literally be the “one world order” we Christians have heard so much about for decades now. There will be few differences from one country to another. For example, the languages and food might be different in Japan to the USA but government, religion and currency will be the same no matter what country you used to call home.

The 666 mark of the beast will be uniform worldwide (Revelation 13:15-18; Revelation 14:9-13), so the main difference will be the number of Christians. Countries like India that are about 98% false religion shouldn’t have antichrist’s attention, since all antichrist needs to do is announce time and location to where one can receive the mark, and the lines would quickly form. But countries with a large Christian population will be a different matter, and antichrist will need more gestapo troops to search out and capture unwilling Christians.

America is supposed to be a Christian nation. Obama said while in office that America was no longer a Christian nation. I hate to say I agree with Obama on anything, but after the November elections and quite a few news reports, I’d say the USA is split down the middle between good and evil. So my guess is that about 50% of the US population will voluntarily line up for the mark and easily fall for the lies and deceptions, just like those who fall for the Democrat-Socialist Party platform.

Not all of the “good” 50% Americans will be saved, so only a portion will be raptured. The ones left behind will probably head for the wilderness as their crazy uncles will be gone, so the seed they planted will start to make sense. Most people are not stupid.

I believe more than 1% will survive the tribulation period. There has to be someone to repopulate the millennium.

You made a very good point in the left behind fleeing to heathen and pagan countries where antichrist has few souls to gain.


Survival in the Australian Outback and Wilderness

Hi Dick,

Wow! Awesome. I have read all 55 articles, some twice. Please write 55 more. Please always include links to nuggets from replys; they often lead to new eye-opening information.

Lord God bless you, in the name of our Lord Yeshua Meshiach.

Cheers from down under.

PS: we have 50 million kangaroos, camels, rabbits, pigs, horses and goats all considered pests, so there should be plenty of meat.

The previous email from Nick Lagos started this discussion on wilderness survival for the left behind. Kieran Roberts continues with the following with a few added notes by myself:

Here is Kieran’s email:

My name is Kieran Roberts. Long time reader and an occasional commenter on the articles posted on this website.

There are a few things that you need to know about Australia:

Australia is an Island continent with a big coast line.

Most Aussies live on the coast line, as the interior is mostly desert.

We have our own rather unique wild life to contend with as well.

Kangaroos. If you are a good shot and skilled at bush craft, you can kill, dress and eat them. Their meat is low in fat and delicious to eat. You can also use the skins to make what you need.

Emus can be eaten as well. The cassowary is their smaller bad-tempered cousin, especially the males. You can and do find them in Queensland’s rainforest.

Be very careful about spiders and scorpions. Remove the stinger from the scorpion and you will be fine.

Water buffalo, camel, feral pig, and brumbies (Wild horses) can also be killed and eaten. Cook the meat thoroughly, then you can eat it with whatever else you have scrounged from the surrounding bush.

If you know how, you can also eat snakes, both pythons and the venomous ones. With the venomous ones like the inland Taipan, make sure that the head has been removed. The word “Taipan” Is Chinese for Big boss. (I think).

Cane toads are venomous so forget eating one. The venom will kill you. They are an introduced pest anyway. The only way to kill one is a long freeze-dried hibernation.

The platypus. Shy creature lives in rivers, only comes out to build a nest and lay eggs. The males have a poison spur on their back leg. Get struck by that, and you will wish you were dead. The venom won’t kill you; all it will cause is pain that will last for months. There is no anti-venom.

Wombats. Referred to as Bull dozers of the bush for good reason. They will bite; and if you shoot one, it sounds as if you have just shot a bucket loaded with sand.

Dingos. Australia’s wild dog. Keep your tent locked up at night. Also there was the Azaria Chamberlain case. Lindy Chamberlain was eventually proven right.

Crocodiles are the Australian version of an alligator. The freshwater crocs are 2 to 3 meters in length. They have been known to take pot shots at locals and idiot tourists who have left their brains at the border. They eat fish and crustaceans.

The saltwater crocodile is bigger and meaner. Both fresh water crocodile and the Salties can be eaten.

You can also eat Goannas.

Sharks, enough said. They’re scary. I think you can eat them?

Chironex flekeri, more commonly known as the box jelly fish. Be sure to have a lot of Vinegar with you, as that will neutralize the stings. Then cart yourself off to the hospital for a week of misery and pain.

Irrukunji, a smaller cousin, can put a 250 kg man in the hospital for nearly a month.

The Eucalyptus tree is called “Petrol on a stick” and for good reason. We get our fair share of bush fires here. Ash Wednesday and Black Saturday. I remember Black Saturday only too well.

Read the poem “I Love a Sun burnt country.”

We get intense and very hot to boiling droughts, with the occasional dust storm thrown in. We also get flooding rains. Winters here can get cold and blustery.

If a farmer catches you on his property hunting his animals, he will shoot you.

Some of the plants you can eat. Make sure you can identify a good plant from a poisonous one. A good book can help you with that. Some weeds are also edible.

Cooper Peady is an opal mining town. The locals live underground because it is so hot there. The word Cooper Peady is an aboriginal word and means “White man down a hole.”

I hope you can use this information.

(Dick’s reply) Thanks for the good info. People left behind might consider a move “down under”?

Changes in the Pre-Rapture Prayer List series

As many of you have figured out by now, ole Dick Ainsworth qualifies to be termed as “computer stupid”! Thank God for intelligent kids and grandkids. They showed me how to provide links to make it easier for you readers to find previously posted prayer lists in the Rapture Ready archives. So I have changed the list of prayer lists to links so you can now go to them one at a time with one click.

A good way to build a stronger prayer life is to print off hard copies of Pre-Rapture Prayer Lists #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9 and following, and at any time of day or night when you as an individual want to pray to the Lord, take out your printed copies and read/pray over them again. This also great for family group prayer and home-church group prayer. God has a very big memory, and all prayers are recorded by Our Lord and Savior.

Below are the links to all prayer lists thus far:
