June to August Donation Drive
We have fixed our relationship with a certain search web giant. They were unsure who was actually running RR, and they wanted us to verify the identity of our management. After fighting with them for over a month, I had given up all hope that we would ever be able to reach a resolution to the problem.
A person working from India walked me through certain steps that somehow worked to resolve the impasse. All I did was enter my name as head of Rapture Ready in their system, and somehow this move satisfied the folks in California.
They emailed me with the good news, but I refused to respond to them. They were basically saying it was okay for RR to continue paying them to have access to the internet. I give all the credit to our RR members, who prayed that God would resolve this matter.
I decided to open an account at Microsoft to broaden our ad outreach. Because Microsoft is a midget in the world of web ads, I thought they would be cheaper. They were actually 34.5 times more expensive.
For the last several weeks, I was working on our RR mirror sites. When I started, it was a complete mess. Several of the domains had missing files and dead links. Some domains had expired on me, and I had to reload them.
I spent many hours just trying to organize where we had these mirror sites and what was their log-on information. FTP programs seem to be on the out. I had to update many sites by the file manager of the control panel. It was slow going, but I only needed to make the updates once.
If any of you have your own domain server and would like to host a RR mirror site, please contact me, and I will send you a link to a zip file that contains the files. These mirror sites will put near-zero demand on your server. After the rapture, there may be smoke pouring from your machine as hundreds of millions search for information on why they are left behind.
I firmly believe that the intent is the only way to reach large numbers of people in the post-rapture world. I looked on Amazon to see if they still had the Left Behind series on sale. They had two paperback lists; one said “3 left in stock,” and the other said “5 left in stock.” Once the rapture takes place, they will be gone in a matter of seconds.
Tim LaHaye once told me it took two months for his publisher to print 250,000 copies of just one copy of the Left Behind series. After selling 9 million copies in 25 years, it means that on average, Tyndale House Publishers printed 30,000 per month. Those are big numbers for the print world, but they were very small for the general population.
In my mirror site focus, I have no illusion that I’m the fiddler and God is dancing to my tune. My hope is that I can fit into his end-time plan. Please pray that God will bless our focus on being a resource to those who find themselves on the wrong side of the rapture.
In February, I was speaking with the head of internet ministries for another Christian organization. I asked him if he had any need for funding of any project. He said they need a new backdrop for the set they use to film programs. I told him I would send him the money since RR had a surplus at the time.
I talked to him a few weeks later, and he told me that word had gotten out about my donation, and several people matched my gift. The giving was over 10 times what I had sent to them. Because of that, they had enough money to purchase a whole new set. I was mortified by how unusual my action was viewed by other people.
RR has been the #1 site for prophecy for over 30 years, and I have zero concerns about another site surpassing us. If I gave someone an idea of how to be successful, and they left RR in the dust with success, I would praise God for providing me with a wonderful opportunity to be a mentor of someone who excelled to greatness.
This means that everyone who has given to RR in the first quarter of 2021 has had their donation increased 10-fold. This amount is what it costs RR to operate for a full year. Please pray that God will provide me with another 10-fold opportunity in the future.

The UFO Set-Up
My friend, the late Dr. Chuck Missler, once wrote a book with the title Alien Encounters. He asked Douglas James Mahr to write the foreword for it. Mahr was author of the 1985 release, Voyage to the New World, an immensely popular book at the time that went a long way toward making New-Age thinking mainstream in the entertainment community.
Mahr tells that he was once totally immersed within the New Age movement. He became close friends with actress Shirley McClain and helped her while she worked on the 1988 TV film Out on a Limb.
It was the story of Ms. McClain’s coming to embrace the New Age movement and become the movement’s chief Hollywood proponent.
Mahr, by the time of the publication of Missler’s Alien Encounters in 1997, had apparently become a believer in Christ. He wrote the following as part of the foreword for that book:
It’s all about the war. An invisible war. A cosmic contest which may, indeed, engulf the planet Earth in ways that very few have any capacity to anticipate. Anyone who has been watching the news, or has been profiling the entertainment media, realizes that our society is increasingly being confronted with the “invisible” world—and what was once the domain of science fiction and the lunatic fringe, has now become the preoccupation of serious scientific investigations and has also become a major centroid of policy within the classified government community…
There is a cosmic deception being orchestrated and you are one of its targets…
Mahr was seemingly prescient in his declaration. We are witnessing almost precisely the reality wrapped up in his words: “It’s all about the war. An invisible war. A cosmic contest which may, indeed, engulf the planet Earth in ways that very few have any capacity to anticipate.”
For years, Hollywood presented films like The Day the Earth Stood Still, The War of the Worlds, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and many others. Sightings, even by presidents of the United States, were reported of unidentified flying objects and other phenomena that appeared to be extraterrestrial. Yet the whole time, news organizations, government officials, military officials and every other entity within officialdom pooh-poohed these as imagination or as something of non-importance.
Project Blue Book, the U.S. Air Force official look into the UFO and USO (Unidentified Submerged Object) reports, was shut down with more or less the declaration that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to probe further. All that has suddenly changed. It seems even our government is taking notice. And the sudden interest comes at a fascinating time—when most every prophetic indicator for the coming Tribulation era is in view. We who observe these indicators appearing at the same time call the phenomenon “convergence.”
There is to be coming soon a release of reports that have been kept from the public for decades. The following excerpt explains.
There are reasons to be skeptical. After decades of stonewalling on the issue, suddenly American military chiefs appear to be giving credence to claims of UFOs invading Earth.
Clips purporting to show extraordinary flying technology have been “confirmed” by the Pentagon as authentic. The Pentagon move is unprecedented.
The videos of the Unidentified Flying Objects were taken by U.S. air force flight crews or by naval surveillance and subsequently “leaked” to the public. The question is: were the “leaks” authorized by Pentagon spooks to stoke the public imagination of visitors from space? The Pentagon doesn’t actually say what it believes the UFOs are, only that the videos are “authentic”.
A Senate intelligence committee is to receive a report from the Department of Defense’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force next month. That has also raised public interest in the possibility of alien life breaching our skies equipped with physics-defying technology far superior to existing supersonic jets and surveillance systems…
The military people who take the videos in good – albeit misplaced – faith about what they are witnessing are not the same as the military or intelligence people who see an opportunity with the videos to exploit the public in a psychological operation.
Fomenting public anxieties, or even just curiosity, about aliens and super-technology is an expedient way to exert control over the population. At a time when governing authorities are being questioned by a distrustful public and when military-intelligence establishments are viewed as having lost a sense of purpose, what better way to realign public respect by getting them to fret over alien marauders from whom they need protection? (“Is the Pentagon’s UFO PsyOps Fueling Russia, China War Risk?” ZeroHedge by Tyler Durden, May 22, 2021. Authored by Finian Cunningham via The Strategic Culture Foundation)
A legitimate question is: Considering all the things we’re witnessing—in convergence of indicators for the windup of this Age of Grace—might the sudden desire to alert the public to planet earth’s likely being visited by extraterrestrials have a luciferian purpose at its heart?
I’m thinking, of course, of 2 Thessalonians and the “lie” people who have rejected the truth of Christ and salvation will believe when they’re sent “strong delusion”—by God, Himself!
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thesssalonians 2:10–12)
So the question to consider is whether the sudden UFO information release has prophetic significance in this regard. Could it be but one more indicator of where this generation stands on God’s prophetic timeline? Is this but one more item being used by Satan and his minions to set up earth’s inhabitants for when the Church is gone in the Rapture and the Antichrist is revealed?
I believe it is quite possible that this is the case.
Remember that in Revelation chapter 12, Satan and his fallen horde are kicked out of Heaven for the final time. In Revelation 13, the False Prophet calls down fire from Heaven in the sight of the first beast and of the world’s populace. Might this be the long-anticipated “space brothers” the False Prophet will claim come to earth to save the planet?
Certainly no developments we see almost hourly in these strange times should be off limits for consideration as to prophetic significance. The present UFO hubbub is no exception.
And when you see all these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your head, for your redemption draws near. (Luke 21: 28)
