Prayer Center

As Christians, we are called to pray for God’s guidance and wisdom. At Rapture Ready we feel it is more imperative than ever for believers to stand together in prayerful unity as the world continues on a downward spiral toward the Tribulation hour. Calamity causes people to waste huge amounts of time fixated on watching the destruction instead of praying for protection and God’s miraculous interventions.

The Bible is filled with verses encouraging us to stay focused on praying for God’s will for our lives; for the safety and wellbeing of our families, ministries and leaders; for the spiritual awakening of the unsaved so they to come to true salvation in Christ; and of course for one another and anything that the Lord places upon our hearts.

Up to the final moments of our days on earth, until the day of the Rapture of the Church, we are dedicated to be prayer warriors for the cause of Christ. We have added this new page to invite and motivate our fellow believers to pray for the most pressing needs of the day.

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2)

We’re Surrounded by Those Who Devise and Delight in Evil

Iniquity Shall Abound

Oakland, California: Gas station shooting; 8 injured, one dead Jan. 21. Multiple gunmen may have fired weapons from across the street.

Los Angeles, California: Mass Shooting Ballroom Dance Studio Jan. 18 during Lunar New Year celebration in mostly Asian-American neighborhood. 11 killed; 9 wounded. Huu Can Tran, 72, then unsuccessfully attempted to kill more at another dance studio. He later killed himself in a standoff.

San Mateo, California: Farm worker killed 7 workers at two sites Jan. 21. Police arrested Chunli Zhao, 67. Victims were Chinese farm workers.

Georgia: Atlanta: Antifa’ Night of Rage’; millions in damages. Some in mainstream media called these far-left domestic terrorists far right instead or said the protest was largely peaceful. It’s what we’ve come to expect. The governor activated the National Guard ahead of potential anti-police protests in Atlanta this weekend.

Chicago: At Least 33 Shot Last Weekend in this Democrat-run city, including fatally.

US government report estimates that there could have been over $60 billion in unemployment insurance fraud during the pandemic.

Apostasy and Doctrines of Demons

Tower of Babel Again: Uniting the World in Opposition to God. This time, it’s the World Economic Forum. The intent of uniting the world under a Satanic regime is the same as it was in Genesis 11.

Painting of Jesus walking on water will no longer be visible at US Merchant Marine Academy in New York after advocacy group complained.

Biden Preaches to Leftist Choir at Atlanta Church. Politician and radical “Reverend” Raphael Warnock invited fellow socialist Biden to speak at Ebenezer Baptist Church. Georgia Senator Warnock is anti-Israel, pro-abortion, pro-LGBTQ, BLM, and so-called social justice; he admired fellow radical Rev. Jeremiah Wright (Obama’s former pastor/spiritual advisor). Many fail to discern what is biblical.

Church of England to allow blessings for same-sex marriages.

State Government Replacing Christian Heritage with Religion of Humanism. US Founding Fathers recognized that our rights come from God and that government should exist to protect our rights. But if there’s no God basis, rights can only come from the state and its leaders who can take them away. The humanistic worldview has become dominant in public education systems.

And the Godless Climate Change Agenda. Great Reset: Individual CO2 Limits Should be Applied to Every Person in Order to Fight Climate Change, Says German Scientist.

Wind turbines taller than Statue of Liberty toppling over. Wind farms are one of the worst options for providing electricity; they cause many problems. Examples: When the wind doesn’t blow, you get no electricity, so you need backup generating power that usually involves carbon-based fuels. Then there are millions of birds killed each year by windmills.

In These Last Days of Lot Returned

Evil Walks Among Us: Child Trafficking is Big Business in America. Every two minutes, a child is bought and sold for sex. Hundreds, some as young as age 9, are sold for sex as many as 20 times a day. Adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year in the US alone.

Texas authorities arrested nearly 50, including a high school teacher and a youth pastor in a sting operation to combat sex trafficking.

Revealed: Gay couple who raped adopted sons and filmed it for internet used ‘Christian’ adoption agency.

US is worst country for pushing ‘extreme gender ideology,’ sex change surgeries on youth. Also see White House lit with rainbow colors after same-sex marriage bill signing (so-called Respect for Marriage Act).

1,000 soldiers forced to attend LGBTQ lecture. The unit was ordered to attend a sexual harassment conference; instead, it was a lecture by a gay soldier on his coming out.

Christian charity worker faces potential jail time, fine after speaking about leaving LGBT lifestyle.

Colorado Court of Appeals ruled against Christian baker Jack Phillips, concluding he was wrong to refuse, on religious grounds, to bake a cake celebrating transgenderism.

And the Abortion Abomination

‘They Turned Abortion into A Pagan Idol’: New York Courthouse Installs Statue Symbolizing Abortion. The sculpture, entitled “NOW” depicts a woman with hair braided into long spirals like ram’s horns and a web of tentacle-like protrusions at each arm, wearing a lace apron like Ginsburg (strong abortion advocate) wore over her robe, and standing on a pink lotus flower. The sculptor said, “She [the statue] is a fierce woman and a form of resistance in a space that has historically been dominated by patriarchal representation.” The statue will be moving around to various locations.

The fall of nations has always followed the same pattern. As it was then, so it is now.

“The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves…. As for my people, children [those not suited for leadership] are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people” (Isaiah 3:9, 12-13).

Vice ‘Resident’ Kamala Harris omitted God and “right to life” when quoting Declaration of Independence in speech marking 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. She only mentioned rights to “liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men [mankind] shall be lovers of their own selves… unthankful, unholy… lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” (2 Timothy 3:1-4).

Biden to Sign Memorandum to Ensure Access to Abortion Pills.

Biden regime’s prosecution of Mark Houck began this week. He faces 11 years in prison and fines for peacefully protesting abortion.

And Last Days Traitors

America’s School System is Failing and Is No Longer There to Educate

Joe Biden named in 2017 China email found on Hunter’s laptop. The deal involved sending millions of tons of gas to the Chinese state-backed corporation CEFC Energy. Hunter’s business associate said 10% of CEFC venture’s stock will be retained “by H for the big guy.” Joe Biden was referred to as “the big guy” to avoid referencing him in emails. Hunter Biden referred to his father as “the Chairman.”

Dem Hypocrisy: Biden’s campaign re-added links to his tax returns following Washington Examiner report on their quiet removal in July 2022, redirecting to page for donating to Democrats.

Deliberate Border Disorder

Homeland Security released over 1,100 illegal immigrants with criminal records from its detention facilities in December.

Plague, Pestilence

Drug Plague: (Photos) Kensington in Philadelphia, ‘ground zero’ for city’s drug epidemic, is in crisis due to widespread abuse of animal tranquilizer, xylazine. Addicts shoot up in broad daylight, many with raw, gaping wounds, and needles and syringes litter sidewalks. Drug use and violence are rampant under woke District Attorney Krasner, whose failure to prosecute minor crimes and bail request policies have come with a crime uptick in the city of brotherly love. The drug overdose epidemic continues to worsen in the US.

And the Planned-demic

Where Did All the Workers Go? Federal Reserve chairman Powell blamed most of the 3.5 million estimated shortfall in the US labor force on premature retirements and “long Covid.” In a footnote, he acknowledged 400,000 unexpected deaths among working-age people. Why did healthy young and middle-aged people suddenly begin dying in large numbers in 2021 of heart attacks, strokes, pulmonary embolisms, accidents, etc., which continued into 2022 and now 2023? Could it be…vaccines?

Davos Plans for Next Pandemic – Suggests National Digital Infrastructures to Track Vaccinations. Participants didn’t acknowledge numerous studies showing ineffectiveness of masking, lockdowns, vaccines, and risks they entail. Reasons for public resistance aren’t important to them, only how they can gain greater compliance during the next viral event. Tony Blair called for digital infrastructure for tracking vaccinations and suggested that to keep governments on board, they’d have to be convinced pandemic issues are “continuing issues.” The group concluded that global institutions in the future need to put constant pressure on governments in order to get the results they desire.

Pfizer CEO Bourla confronted at WEF conference; refuses to answer questions about Covid vaccinations.

UK Dept of Health refuses to answer when ONS will publish updated data on Vaccination Deaths.

Last Days Traitors

FBI official from Trump-Russia probe now charged with illegal dealings with Russians. Yet another example of Leftist projection, blaming someone else for what they’re actually guilty of. Charles McGonigal is the fourth major FBI official (who helped lead the Trump-Russia collusion probe) to face criminal charges or end up under investigation.

Six More Classified Documents Discovered at Biden House. Hypocrisy from the Left knows no bounds!

Creepy Artificial Intelligence and Transhumanism

A look at the future: Hackable humans at WEF. ‘We can decode faces in your mind, your PIN number to your bank account.’ Thanks to AI and the Internet of Bodies (loB) ecosystem, decoding the human brain is already well underway, according to a World Economic Forum presentation. The IoB is emerging from the so-called fourth industrial revolution, which WEF founder Klaus Schwab says will lead to the fusion of our physical, biological, and digital identities – transhumanism. In this nightmare scenario, anything you think can and will be used against you by the thought police.

Watch: Creepy Humanoid Robot “Atlas.” The military-industrial complex’s dream of humanoid warfighters could be realized via Atlas.

Economic and Food Insecurity

Regional emergency declared in 8 states due to gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel shortages: Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.

Great Reset Watch: EU Gives Green Light for Crickets and Mealworms in Human Food. The topic again received attention at WEF’s recent conference. The chairman of Siemens remarked during the panel on climate change, “They will be zero carbon… that is the mission we need to get on.” These global elite hold on to their own meat-eating habits despite attempting to move middle-income workers away from them. Also see Lab-grown meat moves closer to American dinner plates.

Beware of Central Bank Digital Currencies. We’re at the crossroads of the dollar losing prominence and value and the danger of digital currency controlled by a powerful globalist government in exchange for the empty promise of “convenience.” Also see 114 nations are exploring the use of digital currency, and 60 countries are in an advanced phase of exploration (development, pilot, or launch).

We’re reminded in Revelation 13 that the Antichrist and False Prophet will implement a cashless system in the middle of the Tribulation that will track all buying and selling. We can see things headed in that direction.

just as a much more distant “green comet” is brightening.

Conclusion

In This End-times World, We’re Increasingly Surrounded by People Who Devise and Delight in Evil. From Hal Lindsey: If your faith is in your own strength or the strength of your political associations or in a particular leader, you will naturally be afraid. You will be outraged by every potential threat. But faith in God allows you to exhibit and grow the fruit of the Spirit — “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Galatians 5:22-23).

“Fret not thyself because of evil men, Neither be thou envious at the wicked; For there shall be no reward to the evil man. The candle of the wicked shall be put out” (Proverbs 24:19-20).
