Rapture Ready - A Prophecy Site Review by Jeshurun at America In Prophecy.

A modified version of the Rapture Ready.com logo.
While searching among The Search Engine Listings for other ' End Time Prophecy ' Informational Sources to review for my own readers, I came across: " Rapture Ready ".  And since it seemed to be very professionally done - from a graphically designed perspective - I thought that I might as well just check it out scripturally. I know... I know... This Prophetical Information Source actively promotes ' The False Doctrine ' of: " The Rapture "... but, hey, it's possible that they [ honestly ] don't know any better. Aside from Yahweh's True Watchman, we must settle for gleaning the field amidst a whole lot of rotten tomatoes - in our search for: A Very Few and Carefully Chosen Fruit.

Anyway, I thought that I'd give them A Fair Chance; lest they themselves grow jealous of just how charitably I have dealt with their very own select group of competitors. I'm sure that you'll remember My Own Personal Reviews of: " The Biblicist ", and " Prophecy News Watch " - two other ' Rapture Promoting ' Informational Sources upon The Internet. Sad to say, however, those two didn't fair too well from A Truly Prophetical Perspective! Nor, were their other Theological Positions of much help to them either. Those two were just some of: " Spiritual Babylon's Other Highly Confused Followers "! But, perhaps, Rapture Ready is somehow different.... Who knows?

In order to compare: " Apples to Apples " - I decided to maintain my own past yardstick of: " America In Prophecy ". Not this blog-site, of course, but rather ' Their Own Knowledge Of It ' from The Prophetical Scriptures. To make a long story short, here's what I personally found at Rapture Ready.com:

Why is there no mention of America in prophecy?

The United States is mentioned nowhere in Bible prophecy by name. However, as the greatest nation ever to exist --technologically and scientifically speaking-- and as a nation that seems to have been designed by God to act as midwife and protector of Israel in its rebirth in 1948, one has to wonder if America is referred to somewhere in God's Word. (1)
Some people believe it's mentioned in passages of Jeremiah, but I don't see it, personally. The Babylon spoken of is for a literally reborn Babylon, in my studied view.
The only reference we find, even obliquely, is in the Gog-Magog account of Ezekiel 38.
The "merchants of Tarshish" is reference to traders that came from the area of "Tarshish" or "land of tin." This is most often said to be the area of present-day England. The Scripture where this is mentioned is as follows:
"Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?" (Ezek. 38:13).
The "young lions" that follow "merchants of Tarshish" could include America, the offspring of Tarshish, as well as Australia, Canada, and a number of others that England spawned.
My own view is that when the rapture occurs, the US, which contains the largest numbers of true believers in Christ, will be in considerable disarray and chaos. Out of that might come a determination to join with the European Union in an effort to bring some semblance of order to the world. (2)
Thus the US could be absorbed by that growing beast-state, out of which the beast, Antichrist, will come. This last world government is seen in Daniel 7 and more details are given in Daniel 9. More on Antichrist is found in Daniel 8 and in Revelation 13, which also speaks of this beast-state in the first few verses.


As you can see, from the very first paragraph [ figure (1) ], Rapture Ready isn't [ really ] so ready after all! Not only do they espouse ' The False Rapture ' - like so many other Babylonian Organizations - they know absolutely nothing about: " America In Prophecy ". Hey, people, it's their own words that [ so honestly ] convict them... don't get mad at me... I'm just telling it like it is!

Meanwhile, in the seventh paragraph of Rapture Ready's Own FAQ Page, we can happily read  ' The Author's Personal Speculations ' about what may or may not occur after The Non-Scriptural Rapture... and he even goes on to speculate from there. Now isn't that what everyone wants from Their Own Personal Watchman? I mean, why would we ever want to hear: " Thus, sayeth Yahweh " - when the mere speculation of these ' Far Off Events ' won't even matter... after all, " We're Getting Raptured, and it's someone-else's problem anyway "! Come on, folks, Wake Up!

I know that you factually are: " A Stiff-Necked and Hard-Hearted People" - because My Own Father told me as much... plus, I've actually lived among you, for a very long time... but, The Time Is Growing Short and You Really Need To Start Listening... and, not to those other guys - like Rapture Ready.com. They know Absolutely Nothing; and They're Openly Lying To You! Can you, not, see this?
