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
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)

PLAGUE AND PESTILENCE
Drug-Overdose Deaths Soared Nearly 30% in 2020 in the U.S., Driven by Synthetic Opioids. Fentanyl, along with isolation and stress from the pandemic propelled the surge, experts say.
Plague of Biblical Proportions: A Billion Sea Creatures Cooked to Death by Blazing Heat on the U.S. west coast. Weather patterns all over the planet are going absolutely nuts, and it’s having a devastating impact on many highly vulnerable ecosystems.
High concentrations of red tide in Tampa Bay, Florida, causing massive fish kills. Experts say it’s still early in the rainy season to see fish kills at this magnitude.
AND THE PLANNED-DEMIC
Sydney Powell, etc. Say U.S.’s CDC is a Disinformation Center; Criminal Action to Support Big Pharma. “We know that children are 50 times more likely to die from the vaccine than they are from COVID. This is criminal action by the CDC to support Big Pharma. That’s the only possible reason for it. It is not for the health or the welfare of the children that, as you said, being humiliated and degraded by this prospect. It’s not the CDC anymore. It’s the Criminal Disinformation Center.”
Five Times More Children Committed Suicide in the UK Than Died of Covid in First Year of Lockdown. Only 25 children under age 18 died of coronavirus from the start of the pandemic until the end of February 2021 (only 6 of whom appeared to have no underlying health conditions). During the same period, studies found there were 124 child suicides and 268 deaths from trauma. The risk of removal of children and young people from their normal activities appears to be a greater risk than Covid. When extrapolated to “absolute risk of death” from Covid, children appeared to face just one in 481,000 odds of dying from the Wuhan virus.
Dr John Wright of Bradford Royal Infirmary said, “Children are a lost tribe in the pandemic. While they remain (for the most part) perplexingly immune to health consequences of Covid-19, their lives and daily routines have been turned upside down. Children in mental health crisis used to be brought to A&E about twice a week. Since the summer, it’s more like once or twice a day. Some as young as 10 have cut themselves, taken overdoses, or tried to asphyxiate themselves. There was even one child aged eight.”
Is Government Coming After Unvaccinated Rural Americans? DHS Training Program Teaches How to Isolate & Quarantine Rural Populations. The countryside has more conservatives; thus, more people in rural America likely to refuse experimental COVID jabs. An online course run by Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) recently surfaced and may give clues to how the government may target rural Americans who don’t want the vaccine. RDPC is linked to DHS (Dept of Homeland Security) and FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) training system. More info from ruraltraining.org.
Mainstream Media Lies: Vaccine Hesitancy Is Not Highest Among Republican Men, and Trump Supporters Are Not to Blame. It’s actually young, healthy people who don’t want the vaccine. After six months of shots, vaccine hesitancy can be measured largely by who has not gotten one yet. The CDC reported that: Vaccination coverage and intent among adults are lowest among those aged 18–39 years. Political affiliation was not mentioned. Official data shows that, from March to May, 25% of these young adults said they were unsure about getting vaccinated; another 25% said they will not get it.
FDA to Add New Warning on Johnson & Johnson Covid Vaccine Related to Autoimmune Nerve Syndrome. The Food and Drug Administration will finally add that the J&J Covid jab has been linked to “serious but rare side effects called Guillain-Barré syndrome.”
Britain: health chiefs sneak out warnings on Pfizer and Moderna’s Covid vaccines regarding heart inflammation. Fears about the vaccines’ links to myocarditis have grown in recent weeks, following a string of cases in young adults and children in Israel and the U.S. Now the U.K.’s drug watchdog has updated its safety info to accept that the condition is a possible side effect of both vaccines, without a formal announcement. The Regulatory Agency insists the complication – inflammation of heart muscle that can damage the heart over time – is still ‘extremely rare’ and ‘typically mild.’ But it wasn’t even listed as a potential side effect until last week when MHRA updated its safety surveillance data.
France: Vaccine Pass Now Required in Public Spaces. Despite the lies. Despite the disastrous side effects a number of people have had from these experimental vaccines. Despite the questions. This is it: dictatorship. President Macron says only the immune can go to bars and restaurants, makes Covid jabs compulsory for care workers, and warns the country’s fourth wave has already begun.
FAMINE AND FOOD INSECURITY
Pandemic-Driven Hunger Hits 15-Year High as Global Crisis Unfolds. The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2021 report warns food insecurity and malnutrition have hit 15-year highs and are likely to worsen. Well before the pandemic, the world was on track to minimize hunger and malnutrition by 2030. But the pandemic disrupted economic flows around the globe, unleashing supply chain hell compounded by disruptive weather, along with overstimulation by central banks and governments helping to induce inflation, which has put the world at a critical juncture. A staggering 811 million people went hungry in 2020, about 10% of the entire world population. That figure shows a rise of 150 million.
WICKEDNESS, LAWLESSNESS ABOUNDS
Chicago: Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago to Dispatch Mental Health Experts on Some 911 Calls Instead of Police. Just how well these new responders will be able to de-escalate violence that can erupt during such calls is yet to be explained or demonstrated.
South Africa: A ‘Glimpse into Hell’: Socialist-led Riots Roil South Africa. The most severe riots in decades continue to rock South Africa. As of Tuesday, 72 people have been killed. Heedless looters rushed into a shopping mall, crushing 10 of their fellow looters to death. Many of the gangs targeted foreign nationals and South Africans of Indian descent. Due to overwhelmed police forces, potential victims banned together and defended themselves with firearms. The riots are believed to have been instigated by devotees of Jacob Zuma, a self-described socialist who served as South African president from 2009 to 2018. Zuma faces 16 counts of fraud, money laundering, and racketeering for being part of a multibillion-dollar embezzlement scheme during his presidency.
China: Abduction and trafficking of babies has been rampant in China for decades. A man in China who spent 24 years searching for his kidnapped son was reunited Tuesday. In China, the abduction and trafficking of babies has been a problem for decades. In 2015, it was estimated that 20,000 children were being abducted each year in China. Many are sold into adoption, domestically and overseas.
LAST DAYS OF LOT RETURNED
Establishment Journal of Medical Ethics article says Government should exclude parents who oppose their child becoming “transgender.” When parents reject their childrens’ claim to be transgender, “parents should lose veto power over most transition-related pediatric care,” wrote author Maura Priest, a candidate professor at Arizona State University.
Gay Men’s Choir That Sang ‘We’re Coming for Your Children’ Rushes to Cover After Pedophilia Accusations. Some members of a gay men’s chorus that released a video in which the singers promised to “corrupt your kids” and “convert your children” appear to be convicted pedophiles. The chorus roster and board of directors of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus were apparently removed from the group’s website around the time these revelations became public.

New York Democrats urge ban of Chick-fil-A from state rest stops, claiming the restaurant supports anti-LGBT causes. This is just a further example of hatred against Christian organizations and a rebellion against God. Chick-fil-A issued a response, saying, “We want to be clear that Chick-fil-A does not have a political or social agenda, and we welcome everyone in our restaurants.”
Biden nominates first openly gay woman to serve as U.S. ambassador. Biden intends to nominate Chantale Wong to serve as U.S. Director of the Asian Development Bank, with the rank of Ambassador.
Democrats Defeat Pro-Life Amendment, Vote to Force Americans to Fund Abortions. Congressional Democrats defeated Republicans’ attempt to reinstate a popular, longstanding ban on taxpayer funding for elective abortions in federal spending bills. “Biden-Pelosi Democrats had the chance to foster unity by preserving the Hyde Amendment and other longstanding, popular policies that protect unborn babies and mothers. Instead, they shamefully doubled down on extremism, throwing out decades of bipartisan consensus.”
EXPOSING LAST DAYS TRAITORS: INTENTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES
Is The FBI Trying to Create a New Generation of “Hitler Youth”? During World War II, Hitler indoctrinated children into Nazi ideology. Hitler Youth for boys and for girls was modeled after the adult Brownshirts. Peer pressure and coercion caused the groups to grow rapidly. By 1939, the law required every German between 10 and 18 to join the group so they could Nazi-fy even more kids. Young people were encouraged to snitch on family members, churches, and teachers that didn’t support Nazi ideology. We all know that saying, those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it. The current administration appears to want to repeat it.
“And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death” (Luke 21:16).
Are Teachers’ Unions Evil? Besides other issues that would cause you to answer yes: The transfer of raising children from the family to the state and its agencies – in this case, the teachers’ unions – is a dream of Marxism, a fulfillment of the “dictatorship of the proletariat,” which in practice means dictatorship of the Communist Party. Teachers’ unions, with their advocacy of racism and rejection of parents’ rights, are playing a major role in “divide and conquer,” the conquest of America by Democrat socialism.
Leaders of Democratic Socialists of America travel to Venezuela to meet with dictator Nicolas Maduro. The DSA has previously endorsed leftist Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cori Bush, and Jamaal Bowman. Many other Democrat adjacent groups have made similar trips. In 2019, Sarah Chambers, board executive for Chicago Teachers Union (CTU), led a group to Venezuela on behalf of the organization to provide support for Maduro’s regime. The CTU is affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers, which heavily supported Biden’s presidential campaign and many other liberal campaigns. Chambers has a long history with the more activist elements of the union, including the #RedforEd movement, which has socialist roots, and advocates for a leftist Democrat uprising designed to flip purple or red states blue, using the education system.
‘The Cuban People Will Be Free’: Congressman Introduces Resolution to Support Cuban Protests; Only Republicans Sign On. But of course. The Democrat leaders support communism. From Ben Shapiro: “Dissidents against tyranny from Cuba to Hong Kong fly the American flag because they recognize it is a symbol of freedom. Meanwhile, Americans who despise the American flag are peculiarly silent when it comes to dictatorial oppression of those dissenters. Strange.”
Commission Investigating’ Sources and Causes’ of Disinformation Is Packed with Left-Leaning Figures. The Aspen Institute has chosen a number of figures for its Commission on Information Disorder who appear to harbor bias and have past controversies. Katie Couric, Prince Harry, and Kathryn Murdoch are some of the more recognizable of the commissioners, but the group also includes many lesser-known figures with partisan ties. Most of the commissioners are left-leaning, and some were found to also have financial scandals or foreign ties.
Texas Democrats leave state temporarily in bid to stonewall GOP voting bills. A group of nearly 60 Texas Democrats left in a bid to stonewall a pair of Republican-backed voting reform bills.
How Google & Wikipedia Brainwash You. Number one visited website in the world, Google, controls 90% of global search traffic. Our minds, health beliefs, political stances, and world views are inseparably linked to info we read on the internet, and neither Google nor Wikipedia is an objective source for this information. The lesson is this: You’re the authority. Read, learn, understand, and don’t take anything at face value. Use your intuition, critical thinking skills, discernment. We’re fighting an information war. Arm yourself with knowledge and be free.
NATION (ETHNIC) AGAINST NATION (ETHNIC): MARXIST INDOCTRINATION
CRT (Critical Race Theory) is rooted in the Marxist theory of class struggle but with a particular focus on race. Proponents of CRT see racism in every aspect of the American public and private life, and seek to dismantle American institutions—such as the Constitution and legal system—which they deem to be inherently and irredeemably racist. A middle school drama teacher in Illinois has filed a lawsuit against her school district, alleging that it is violating anti-discrimination laws and the U.S. Constitution through its curriculum that pits “different racial groups against each other” in the name of “anti-racism.”
NFL Will Mandate Playing of the ‘Black National Anthem’ at All Events; ‘Encourages Players to Protest’ Against the United States in any way they choose, as long as it is a “peaceful protest.”
Globalist Leaders at G20 Endorse Global Tax Plan, Set for Vote in U.S. Congress; “New Rules,” “No Turning Back.” Finance ministers from the world’s 20 largest economies met and agreed to a “more stable and fairer international tax architecture.” This comes just a week after 130 countries agreed to a proposal for a worldwide minimum tax, which Biden has backed since taking office.
WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS
Israel’s IDF said to be asking for major budget increase to enable potential strike on Iran. Israeli security establishment has identified accelerated uranium enrichment activity by the regime. The left blames Netanyahu for not being prepared, and the right claimed the new Bennett-led government has been “silent” as “the Iranians are rushing toward the bomb.”
ISRAEL, OH, ISRAEL
Vines growing on retaining Wall of Temple Mount spell out three of the four letters of God’s name in Hebrew. Three letters were clearly seen: י (yud), ה (heh), ו (vav). These are, of course, the first three letters in God’s ineffable four-letter name (minus the final ה (heh).
Messing with God’s Land
Lapid declares support for two-state solution before E.U. counterparts. Israel’s top diplomat says conditions are not ripe for a peace agreement but stresses that a future Palestinian state must be a democracy that seeks peace with Israel (that’s never happened and won’t seriously happen). He also declared that Israel is seeking to open a new chapter in its relations with the E.U., emphasizing the liberal values shared by Israel and European states.
Liberal Jews (aka Democrats) Believe Lies About Israel
25% of American-Jewish voters polled believe Israel is an apartheid state. Among respondents to the survey commissioned by the Jewish Electorate Institute, led by prominent Jewish Democrats, 34% believed Israel’s treatment of ‘Palestinians’ is similar to racism in the U.S.,” 25% believed “Israel is an apartheid state,” and 22% believed “Israel is committing genocide against the ‘Palestinians.’
Jesus said, “Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:13-14).
Beware Of Strangers Bearing Gifts
UAE embassy opens in Tel Aviv, marking ‘new paradigm for peace.’ Sunni Arab nations that have hated Israel are suddenly aligning with her because of their fear of Shiite Iran. As we know, Israel will be deceived by the Antichrist, who will ‘confirm’ a ‘covenant with many,’ but it will be a false peace which he will break.
“And he [Antichrist] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week [of years]: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate” (Daniel 9:27).
“But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11).
