Year-End Donation Drive

The year 2021 is almost in the history books. I am truly grateful to everyone who has contributed to the site in any way. I’m very certain that with your help, we can achieve even more for the cause of Christ in 2022.

Rapture Ready did very well in traffic for this year. Our monthly traffic is now 2 million, up from 1.5 million in 2019. Our ability to use ads to maintain our visibility brought many new people to the site. I figure that the total number of people who have an understanding of RR is around 3 million. Many of these people will have a far greater interest in our content in the days that come after the rapture. I pray that the main server lasts long enough for people to find the mirror sites and use them to make endless copies of RR.

I need to point out that the only sites Rapture Ready currently operates under are the pages that fall under the RaptureReady.com domain name. The links that go to Rapture Forums, Rapture Ready Radio, and Rapture Ready TV are all maintained by people not directly connected to RR.

We had a couple of people run afoul of the rules on Rapture Forums this past quarter, and they contacted us for an explanation. RR once had its own forum, but we had to shut it down when the software became too problematic to fix. I wish we’d never bothered with having a forum because it was 10% of our traffic and 90% of headaches.

Over the years, there have been several sites that called themselves Rapture Ready. All the major search engines solved that problem by shadow banning any site that has a true Christian message.

I realize that allowing people to use your name for some other project is very rare. Most people would never share a link to anything that didn’t put money in their pocket or give them glory. One time I did a search of various ministries that had their head person speaking at a prophecy conference. None of them mentioned that they were going to be at the conference because it wasn’t their conference. This selfish mentality is partly to blame for why prophetic gatherings are dying out.

I had thought that 2021 was going to be a nightmare with the Democrats in full control of the White House and Congress. God is still in control, and He keeps the devil on a short leash. People are starting to realize that replacing Trump with Biden was a mistake, and Vice President Kamala Harris has become such a joke that she is regarded in some polls as the worst VP in American history.

Because of my knowledge of Bible prophecy, I know that our luck will soon come to a conclusion. Biden may drop dead of a heart attack, and we could end up with the worst President in American history. Our proximity to the tribulation should always make us mindful that we are strangers in a strange land. Here at Rapture Ready, we are going to do the Lord’s work until he calls us home, which I know we all hope is very soon.

There are three ways you can contribute to Rapture Ready: You can send a financial gift via our P.O. box address, you can make a one-time donation, or there is a frequency option that allows you to make monthly donations.

Comfort One Another…

This is for those who are believers in Christ and who believe what God’s Word says about things to come. Not that I intentionally want to leave out those believers who don’t study God’s prophetic Word, or those who are lost because they haven’t accepted God’s grace offer of salvation through Christ’s sacrifice.

However, without a firm grasp of what the Bible has to say about things to come, and without acceptance of God’s grace gift by those who are spiritually lost, Heaven’s message contained herein cannot assuage the intensifying fear spreading across the globe.

Because of the dire prospects facing the inhabitants of planet earth, many, perhaps most, turn inward and do their best to ignore the darkening foreshadowing that intrudes upon their lives.

That intruding evil includes such things as supposedly the worst pandemic since that of 1918. And the variants of that disease just keep coming, according to the would-be world controllers who want everyone forced to take vaccines that are at best experimental.

Their effects in preventing or making the disease less life-threatening are yet unproven. And the vaccines are not held to the same degree or level of lab testing as others of history. As a matter of fact, some claim they aren’t vaccines at all, but ingestible of unknown materials.

There is credence to this charge, because full disclosure of ingredients is not forthcoming. The vaccine producers are protected against any liability from the proliferating cases of adverse reactions being experienced across the globe.

Because of the COVID paralysis, the nation and world face dire economic prospects. Supply chains for goods are severely disrupted. Deliveries are greatly delayed or not being made at all because of people who refuse to take the vaccines losing their jobs for not complying with governmental and company mandates.

Millions are walking off of their jobs in protest of the threat of loss of personal liberty. Their children are facing diminished education because of the COVID-spawned tyranny.

Education, itself, is in a darkly evolving trajectory. Critical Race Theory and other evil inculcation has caused upheavals across the country, with parents standing up against the cancel culture in schools and the insane rules and restrictions coming from leftist, radical school boards.

Inflation has raised its ugly head to levels near the time of the Carter administration’s “malaise” of the 1970s. This is predicted to get much, much worse as the economy shuts down, fewer products are on the shelves of stores, and inflation explodes.

Energy costs, already increasing day by day, are projected to get much worse in the near future. Gasoline prices at the pumps are entering uncharted territory in rising costs per gallon.

Threats from the “open borders” policy of the Biden administration bodes ill for American life in more ways than can be adequately analyzed. The invasion is being used by those of the leftist mindset to distribute the hordes of illegal aliens in order to, they intend, change the voting of future elections in their favor.

People thus look for hope in direction other than the darkening horizon. But, sadly, most look inward, as stated previously, not in the direction they should look in seeking a brighter prospect for their lives.

Sadly, too, even the pulpits of America are filled by pastors who point congregants to cope with their daily troubles in societal and cultural ways–to the exclusion of prophetic hope.

Teaching to cope is well and good, if done with Christ at the center of the messages on how to best get along in this life on a deteriorating, disintegrating planet. But people in the pews and across the nation and world virtually never are shown the magnificent future that awaits those who truly understand the majesty and promises wrapped up in the name that is above every other.

In that name resides a future of incomprehensible life and prosperity beyond imagination. His is the only name that can comfort the demonically savaged souls of these closing days of the age.

Preachers who are truly messengers of Jesus Christ should be shouting from the elevated platforms of their pulpits. We should be doing the same at every opportunity.

All the things surrounding us that point to planet earth’s most wicked time of destruction are a holy siren of alert. Jesus is about to step onto the clouds of glory and shout, “Come up here!” When we see all these things we have seen–and continue to see—we are to look up and lift up our heads. For He is on the way for His own. This is the ultimate promise from the Creator-God—from Jesus Himself.

What promise! What incomparable comfort!

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:16–1

Covid-19: The Worst Possible Outcome at Every Turn

I am shocked to see how the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded in the last two years. It seems that this is all part of a plot because the worst possible event always happens with each passing day.

In September of last year, it looked like we were saved by the extremely rapid development of vaccines. The virus mutated so rapidly, shifting from the delta variant to the omicron variant, that vaccines could be a huge waste of time and money. The world has spent $10 trillion on prevention. In the end, we probably should have just let it burn through the population until we achieved herd immunity the hard way.

People like Bill Gates are saying that this virus may be with us for all eternity. A dozen years from now, some people may be on their 20th booster shot. I’ve already said I don’t care about the current vaccines. The one that has me concerned is the third or fourth generation of the jab that may only have a few weeks of study. When I started recommending the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, 2.5 billion people had already had the shot, and there was 10 months of research.

The omicron variant has 30 mutations on the spike proteins alone. This is such a rapid rate of mutation that we should probably change the name of the virus to COVID-20. The delta variant only had 10 mutations, and fully vaccinated people are being infected with the virus.

How quickly these variants travel across the globe is shocking. We only learned about omicron two weeks ago, and it’s now in 38 countries and ten American states. Since it takes about two weeks for people to develop symptoms, all the travel bans to South Africa were a month too late.

What makes me wonder about the most, if we’re following a game plan, is that every new variant is more contagious than the one before it. The next stage will be that they become more lethal with every new mutation.

The most regrettable outcome from the COVID-19 pandemic is the loss of freedom from the power overreach by various governments. Until recently, Australia was most famous for its sunshine and relaxed attitude. Since the Covid pandemic hit, that country has quickly turned into an Orwellian police state. Australians can’t leave the country, and returning travelers quarantining at home are forced to download an app that combines facial recognition and geolocation. The state will text them at random times, and thereafter they will have 15 minutes to take a picture of their face in the location where they are supposed to be. Aussie Police recently arrested teen ‘Fugitives’ who escaped From a Covid Internment Camp.

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern has permitted her people to use the bathroom inside their friends’ homes. A few years ago, that sort of statement was seen as a joke. This shows just how bad the world is for people to act so easily like a dictator and for the public to tolerate this absurdity.

The government has already done tremendous damage to the economy with lockdowns and free money handouts. If omicron or another variant triggers a new round of stimmy checks, I think it’s very likely that we will have a supply-chain meltdown. About every time I go to the grocery store, there is at least one item I would like to buy that is out of stock. The American people have no idea how quickly we could degrade into the old Soviet Union, where you go to the store to buy what they have and trade with your neighbors for what you need.

The Soviet Union collapsed because ordinary people who lived under that system understood that it did not work. We are turning into the USSR because the socialist plans we have put in place have failed, and we are turning towards more socialism for the solution. The Soviet Union had a 69-year history. Since America is transforming into a socialist state, it may take decades for our fellow citizens to fully realize it doesn’t work. One possible good thing about Covid is it is rapidly speeding up the process.

“When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan” (Proverbs 29:2).


The Blueprint

Throughout the past weeks, months and even years, we’ve looked at the evil of the principalities and powers of Ephesians 6: 12.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)

We’ve addressed how the wickedness within this cabal is ratcheting up for the conclusion of the age. The cabal includes both demonic and human diabolists that are determined to lay groundwork of the most disastrous kind. It is preparing the way for the reign of Antichrist, which will be the most despotic, tyrannical regimes of all human history.

The human minions within the high places have little to no idea that they are working to help Satan complete his destructive mission. However, these are every bit as much his Tribulation demolition force as the demonic principalities and powers of the supernatural sort.

There is no doubt that the stage is being set for Daniel’s seventieth week—the seven years of Tribulation leading up to Christ’s Second Advent. The avalanche of deception and wickedness that we see being foisted upon end-times mankind we term “Satan’s blueprint,” and it is drawn up and implemented by the ultimate architect of evil.

We’ve looked at how the US is the number-one holdup to this luciferian plan coming to full construction. By that, I mean that in human terms, this is the case. It is, of course, God the Holy Spirit resident within the Church (all born again believers) who restrains the evil, as pointed out in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2.

But in human terms—in geopolitical terms—it is America and our constitutional adherence to national sovereignty that offers most resistance to the New World Order builders. That’s who brings the hellish drive to deconstruct national borders that we see plaguing our country. It is why the present presidential administration is sometimes openly, sometimes covertly, bringing illegal aliens across our borders and flying others in the early morning hours into places like Florida from places like Afghanistan. Satan wants no national borders. He is determined to establish one-world rule as soon as his blueprint is fully implemented.

The devil’s blueprint has been cleverly drawn, and was begun earnestly, in modern times, during the mid-twentieth century. With Hitler and Tojo defeated in 1945, the minions of Ephesians 6: 12 created the United Nations in succeeding years. Where Wilson and the one-worlders had failed with the League of Nations following WWI, the UN sprang to life and now makes its powerful presence known in every aspect of life on planet earth.

Satan even had in his blueprint to plant this one-world organization in America’s most influential city—influential not only within the US, but effectively in most every nation on earth.

The devil’s determination to tear down America’s boundaries–in every area of existence, not just in terms of geography—includes in his blueprint the following you will recognize.

In terms of society and culture, the satanic plan has divided the nation to an ever-increasing extent. He has fomented racial, political, class, religious, and economic chaos and division in other ways. The “seas and waves” are roaring in this nation that once was the world’s greatest experiment in liberty of human history. The republic that Benjamin Franklin once was said to have told a woman: “We have given you your republic, if you can keep it,” we have now lost.

One of Satan’s human minions, whom we are told is most notorious in helping create this condition of decline–George Soros, along with other ultra-rich one-worlders—has completely corrupted our lawmakers (Congress) and our constitutional guardians (Supreme Court judges). Washington, DC, has rightly been called “the Swamp.”

The satanic blueprint has replaced the Bible and moral coding with educational corrosiveness that has caused the majority of college students to hate America rather than claim it proudly as that great experiment in liberty Franklin and the other founders intended. This deception and wickedness have separated the young from their parents in many cases. Even the youngest students in kindergarten are now taught disgusting things about their sexuality and that one race is superior over another. The mainstream media glorifies the burning and looting of cities and the killing of police—a thing that is also acclaimed by the party of the political left. At the same time, anyone with a countervailing political, social, or cultural view can be placed in prison and vilified–held in an unconstitutional gulag—for months, even years. Not a governmental finger is lifted to help in their plight.

The blueprint has deceived much of the nation in the matter of what is right. The blueprint says one can be whatsoever gender they want to be. Anyone who disagrees is held up to ridicule and, in some cases, is threatened with physical harm and even death.

The devil and his blueprint have arranged for a very small percentage that makes up LGBTQ, etc., to completely dominate the national landscape. Mainstream news and entertainment powers that be seem to be all in with the insanity. And insanity is what the nation has come down to–the reprobate mind of Romans 1: 28.

So we are now, perhaps, at the point Jesus spoke about in framing the very end of the age. His words tip off those who are watching for Him to rescue them/us from the fulfillment of Satan’s blueprint.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. (Luke 17:28–30)

The Great Tornado Outbreak of 2021

I’ve always had a profound interest in weather. Many times when a thunderstorm comes rolling through here in Benton, Arkansas, you will find me out on my porch watching the storm. That was the case this past Dec 10th. A single thunderstorm had popped up over the central part of the state. I thought how lucky it was to have it pass over the town.

My smartphone had a warning message that said we were at the southern end of a tornado watch. I didn’t think we were in any danger, but I was impressed by the inflow energy of the storm. It seemed like one of those thunderstorms that a tropical storm or hurricane would generate as it comes on land.

A few days later, I was watching a YouTube video from a weather station out of Louisville, Kentucky. A woman showed the radar of the storm that devastated Mayfield and other communities. I immediately realized that the thunderstorm was the same one that passed over Benton. Terry and I weren’t in any real danger because the storm was not rotating when it came through. It turned tornadic when it got 80 miles down the road.

It will take several weeks to document the storm damage. What we have already learned is shocking. The tornado, being called the “Quad-State Tornado,” ripped across four states in four hours (Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Kentucky). There is a path of catastrophic damage that is 230 miles long and as wide as three-quarters of a mile. Meteorologists are trying to verify if all this damage is from one single tornado. If this is the case, it would rival the 1925 Tri-State tornado that killed 695 people as it traveled 219 miles across Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana. So far, they had proved that the same tornado traveled at least 125 miles.

The Mayfield tornado sent debris 30,000 feet into the air, the cruising altitude of many passenger jets, and scattered prom photos, handmade quilts, and wrapped Christmas gifts scores of miles away from the tornado’s path. One photo was found on a car window 130 miles away from its owner.

The death toll in Kentucky has now exceeded 70, including 12 children, and is expected to keep growing. Gov. Andy Beshear has called it “the deadliest” in the state’s history. The total death toll from the Dec 10th outbreak will likely be over 100 lives lost.

The average number of tornadoes in most of the states hit was less than one per year for December. It is amazing to have Kentucky hit by over a dozen twisters. There was a total of 44 tornadoes on that day.

The last EF4 tornado to strike the U.S. during the month of December was during the Christmas Outbreak of December 2015. Since the strength of a tornado is constantly changing, it may take several weeks to find out if any tornado had the rare EF5 wind speed. The last EF5 tornado in the U.S. hit Moore, Oklahoma, in 2013.

Five days later, we had another tornado outbreak. Half of the Lower 48 endured historic and dangerous weather as an extremely powerful storm system swept through the middle of the country, unleashing damaging winds and, in some areas, tornadoes, dust storms and out-of-control fires.

Winds of 70 to 100-plus mph sheared off roofs, overturned vehicles, toppled trees, and caused hundreds of thousands of power outages while contributing to hazardous ground and air travel. From New Mexico to Michigan, more than 36 million people were under high-wind warnings. In Colorado, several locations clocked gusts over 100 mph.

Due to a fast-moving complex of violent storms, known as a derecho, the National Weather Service logged at least 55 reports of hurricane-force wind gusts (75-plus mph), the most in a single day on record.

A tornado touched down in Plainview, Minnesota, just outside Rochester on Dec 15th, according to the National Weather Service. This was the first time Minnesota has recorded a tornado in December.

There were at least three tornadoes that touched down in Iowa. I grew up in Iowa and don’t recall ever having even a tornado watch in December. The two derechos that I experienced in the 47 years that I lived in the area were both in the summer.

All these tornadoes are part of the end-birth pangs that warn that the tribulation hour is drawing near. Many people wonder why disaster strikes the good people of the heartland. A 9.0 quake striking San Francisco would seem to be more appropriate. I don’t think there is any area of the country that is righteous enough to deserve God’s special protection from calamity. If a twister had touched down from that thunderstorm as it passed over my house, I would have looked over at my cat Bud sitting in the next chair and said, “I guess we’re going home early.”

“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple . . . The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether” (Psalms 19:7, 9).


Sanctioning Sodom

Significant proof of advanced end-times prophetic progression recently leaped to the forefront of communications coming from some within the Roman Catholic Church.

I have mentioned before that I receive on a regular basis a newsletter from These Last Days Ministries, a Catholic group. It is especially interesting to me because those presenting the news and commentary do so from a viewpoint remarkably like that of us who hold to the pre-Trib view of Bible prophecy.

To put it mildly, they are no fan of the current pope. As a matter of fact, they have even communicated several times that they see him as a candidate for the false prophet, the second beast of Revelation chapter 13. With Pope Francis’ latest action, he brings to the forefront, for those willing to see, that he is deserving of such accusation. His action is Antichrist—anti-biblical—at its very core.

The pontiff is a supporter of abortion. He recently publicly gave President Biden and, in effect, the entirety of the Democrat Party, a blanket pass on the killing of babies in the womb—a matter long seen as great sin by the Roman Catholic Church.

We have written before this pope’s predisposition to support things that portend Antichrist’s arrival.

He has said on more than several occasions that there ways to God, Heaven, and salvation of the soul other than through belief in Jesus Christ alone. He has backed up those political minions in high places within the Catholic Church, giving them a pass on the murder of millions of babies through abortion. He has embraced at every opportunity the climate-change madness and the worship of Mother Earth and the Gaia mantra that we must all come together to save the planet.

He joins the totally reprobate purveyors of insanity who demand that all must either submit to an experimental, highly questionable injection or be excluded from the formerly normal activities of the compliant human community.

Now Pope Francis has moved into the area of anti-God activity that Jesus, Himself, indicated will mark the moments leading up to His intervention into human history. The pope has sanctioned homosexuality in no uncertain terms and those in the Catholic Church who know this is anti-God at its black heart are pushing back.

The word “sanction,” like so many English words, has more than one meaning. It can mean a prohibition against or a punishment for defying or violating a regulated matter (for example, when the US sanctions Iran for not abiding by agreements on atomic weapons development). But the use of the word in the sense that it means to approve or accept an action or conduct is how this pope has “sanctioned” homosexuality, despite God calling it “abomination.”

And this is the gist of the newsletter I recently received from the Catholic group that I mentioned earlier.

Following is an excerpt that explains their displeasure with this pope’s action.

Francis has written to pro-LGBT New Ways Ministry, praising and thanking the group and its founders, despite its long-standing opposition to Church teaching on matters of sexual morality and consequent censorship by Church authorities.

On December 8, the National Catholic Reporter (NCR) revealed that Pope Francis wrote two letters to the group’s executive director, Francis Deeryard, on May 3 and June 17. The NCR stated that the letters were on official “Vatican stationary,” and written in Spanish.

The first letter, dated May 3, was in response to an April 21 letter DeBernardo had written to the Pope, explaining the nature of the pro-homosexual New Ways Ministry (NWM). The organization claims it “educates and advocates for justice and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and ***** (LGBTQ) Catholics, and reconciliation within the larger church and civil communities.”

According to NCR, Francis wrote of a discernible “attitude of shepherd closeness” in NWM, saying that DeBernardo’s letter had “helped me a lot to know the full story you tell me…”…

The second letter from the Pope to DeBernardo – a long-time advocate of homosexuality, and a 29-year veteran with New Ways Ministry – again praised the NWM head while also honoring NWM’s co-founder Sr. Jeannine Gramick.

“Thank you for your neighborly work…[your] heart, open to your neighbor,” wrote the Pope, before praising Gramick, who has a long history of dissenting from Catholic teaching on homosexuality and abortion…

“The Holy Father’s warm letter to New Ways Ministry is not only another step in his outreach to LGBTQ people, but the beginning of a kind of rehabilitation for New Ways, and for Sister Jeannine [NWM’s co-founder Sr. Jeannine Gramick] as well, in recognition of their important ministry in our church.” (“Francis Praises Dissident Pro-LGBT ‘Catholic’ Group Previously Condemned by the Church,” by Michael Haynes, LifeSiteNews, December 9, 2021)

We are now well into times “as it was in the days of Lot” in the wicked city of Sodom, as the Lord Jesus forewarned (Luke 17:26–30). Homosexuality and all forms of sexual perversions marked that time. The “falling away” of 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 is manifest starkly for all who can discern the lateness of the prophetic hour.

It’s time to “watch” (Mark 13: 37), but it is even more imperative that believers witness as never before to bring lost souls to Christ before the shout is heard from above, “Come up here!”

“And when you see all these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your head, for your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21: 2

Sleepwalking Toward the Mark of the Beast

Over the years, I’ve probably written several dozen articles on modern technology that could be used to implement the mark of the beast. When I was a kid, I read all types of publications that portrayed the 666 mark as an evil tattoo that people were forced to receive. It was commonly portrayed as something similar to the yellow star of David that the Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust.

In the past couple of years, I’ve been frequently amazed by articles that promoted the use of microchips in managing the Covid-19 pandemic. I’m not stunned by how closely this technology matches the Bible’s description of the mark of the beast. It’s the growing enthusiasm for the chips that has me dumbfounded.

I read on a British news site that a Swedish company is creating a microchip that could be presented as a way to confirm one has the Covid-19 vaccine. The microchip technology startup called Epicenter is creating a microchip that will be implanted under a person’s skin and will rely on existing “near-field communication” (NFC) to send data regarding one’s vaccination status.

A microchip the size of a grain of rice can be implanted under your skin to help provide your vaccination status. The chip is implanted into your arm and can verify your vaccination status when placed next to an NFC. The procedure is relatively quick and costs about $100.

“Imagine showing your COVID-19 passport with just a flash of your arm,” the video starts while showing a person holding out their arm and scanning it with a mobile phone.

“Right now, it is very convenient to have a COVID passport always accessible on your implant,” the video also stated.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a perfect tool for taking away our liberties. Life will return to normal if we all line up and get our vaccine. If you got a vaccine in January, you now have about zero protection from the Delta and Omicron variants, so now you have to get a booster shot. Drug companies are now working on a second series of booster shots.

I am hard-pressed to find videos that explain what is in these booster shots. About 20% of the US population has a high level of mistrust in the government, which prevents them from getting the Covid vaccine. The media and the government should educate people about what is in the vaccines and how they prevent infection.

For nearly two years, the liberal media have blasted one key message: get the vaccine or you’re going to die. Their sickest angle is focusing on every anti-vaxxer that died from Covid-19. Marcus Lamb, a co-founder and the CEO of the conservative Christian Daystar Television Network, was vocally opposed to Covid-19 vaccines, and he died of it last month. If Lamb had gotten the vaccine and died the next day, the press would never mention his name. I don’t know why Lamb was against the vaccine, but I respect his right not to want to get it.

If you say something negative about the vaccines on social media, you can get banned for spreading misinformation. We have to put 100% of our trust into the ministry of truth. If you put blind faith into any operation, disaster will eventually be the result.

People on the right also need to respect people’s decisions to get the vaccine. Former President Donald Trump got booed by his own supporters for revealing that he’d gotten a Covid vaccine booster shot. If Trump dropped dead from unforeseen side effects, he might save millions of lives by being an early guinea pig.

I was thinking about why we keep losing more and more of our freedom. I realized that mistrust works hand and hand with the liberal media and the government propaganda. A key reason why the Omicron Virant came from South Africa is because 75% of the population is not vaccinated. Millions of doses had to be dumped into landfills because the vaccine had expired. The Africans didn’t have enough faith in the white man’s cure for the virus, so we’re stuck on the variant merry-go-round until the global community requires everyone to get the vaccine. Maybe that Swedish firm will get the contract. The chip could have vaccine status, bank account access code, and proof of allegiance to a certain world leader.

“He causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Rev 13:16-1 .

When Hal Lindsey’s book, The Late, Great, Planet Earth, was released in May of 1970, the information startled even more than informed those who read it. People by the millions were suddenly given biblical teaching they, except for very few among them, had never heard.

Bible prophecy was presented as relevant in such a way as to make clear where the world stood in history and where it was headed. The results were a spiritual awakening for many.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard people say that they were saved as a result of reading Hal’s book. I agree with the encapsulating description promoting the book:

The Late Great Planet Earth cannot be overstated. The New York Times called it the “no. 1 non-fiction bestseller of the decade.” For Christians and non-Christians of the 1970s, Hal Lindsey’s blockbuster served as a wake-up call on events soon to come and events already unfolding—all leading up to the greatest event of all: the return of Jesus Christ.

The book was—as they say—cutting edge. It did indeed give some current events as viewed through the template of Bible prophecy.

For example, Lindsey and his coauthor C. C. Carlson wrote about how the region of Russia and surrounding USSR states were likely the nucleus of the Gog-Magog force that would, according to the prophet Ezekiel, attack Israel from the north. They detailed the development of the European Union and how it was likely destined to morph into the final Antichrist kingdom as given by Daniel the prophet.

Again, current events and issues of that time in the 1970s were shaping along the lines of God’s Word with regard to prophecy for the end of the age.

Lindsey pointed out many other facets that gave evidence that Christ would soon call the Church into His Presence. This would be the Rapture.

Some accused him of date-setting in that he implied 1988 might be the year of the Rapture or of some calamitous occurrence in earth’s history—based upon Israel having been reborn as a nation in the year 1948.

I don’t find anywhere that Lindsey actually predicted the Rapture, but only that he offered supposition—again, based upon the Bible giving the number of years as forty for a generation. The Lord saying that “this generation shall not pass until all these things are fulfilled” and Israel’s rebirth into modernity being 1948 was offered as the basis for this thought.

Yet, with the ground-breaking evidence he saw through issues and events of the time, viewed through the prism of Bible prophecy, planet earth continued. It did not become the Late, Great, Planet Earth.

So we come to the year looming before us. The year 2022.

We might wonder how can we possibly truly look at the horizon of humanity and proclaim “Happy New Year!” The issues and events faced by humanity during the 1960s and 1970s were daunting in many ways for America and the world. However, those that confront humanity at this time as we begin 2022 are formidable indeed.

Of course, like most folks around at the time of Lindsey’s book release, the masses of humanity are looking in other directions than at the horizon they, in actuality, are facing. This is the case, even though the issues and events of our time far exceed the virulence of the Cold War, oil crises, and the free-love generation.

Not only are the issues and events of these troubled times more ominous in many respects, but they point almost certainly at the coming Tribulation—Daniel’s seventieth week and the year 2022.

Let’s consider but a few as we peer into what the current occupant of the White House once termed “a dark winter.”


If Israel was a central indicator of the lateness of the prophetic hour in the time of The Late, Great, Planet, Earth’s release, that nation and people are in an intensifying diplomatic spotlight at this hour. It is swiftly becoming the “burdensome stone” of Zechariah chapter 12.

Fear of Israel striking Iran’s nuclear facilities, for example, engenders great concern from the global puppet masters—the UN, etc.

Russia, Iran, Turkey

These nation-state entities represent the heart of the Gog-Magog attack. They are coalescing above Israel in the precise configuration Ezekiel prophesied.


The CPC is preparing the Chinese people for something dramatic. They are increasing China’s hegemony over the other regions of Asia. This is shaping for the moment they and other “kings of the east” will kill a third of the earth’s population.

New World Order

The globalists, who in my view are the human minions in consort with the demonic minions of Ephesians 6:12, are preparing the way for Antichrist’s 666 dictatorship.

COVID has served as a tool of gathering control over the entire planet. Vaccine and mask mandates are making lemmings out of people across the globe. The devil’s blueprint for enslaving the planet at some point in the not-too-distant future is well into the construction stage.

Economic tyranny is driving the richest nation to ever exist on the planet toward collapse, with trillions of dollars printed out of whole cloth—nothing to back those dollars. Complete collapse is inevitable.

Culture and Society

The culture isn’t just coarsening, it is corroding and corrupting at a pace the folks of the 1960s and 1970s, despite the sensual evil of that time, could not have fathomed.

This era’s beastly, cultural minions are doing such things as insisting that children age 5 and younger be given hormonal and other treatments in order to change their genders.

They are having perverts teach grade schoolers and younger sexual activities and deviancy that people of the 1960s and 1970s would have deemed worthy of public hanging for the perpetrators.


Even Catholics are appalled at the pope’s antics in these times.

He condones homosexuality; he says Christ is not the only way to salvation; he makes nice in trying to bring all religions together—a thing Bible prophecy tells us will be central to Antichrist and his system of world control.

Yet with all this and much more wickedness developing, I can say “Happy New Year!”

That’s because the Lord Jesus Christ is still sitting at the right side of God the Heavenly Father. The Father is about to say to the Son, “Go get my children.”

I can assure this, because all of the signals are in place that point to the Tribulation and Christ’s Second Advent.

Unlike in the time of Hal’s release of his book, they are all in place. That is a happy prospect indeed for 2022!

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. (Luke 21:2
