Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

    The Ring of Fire

    I read a very interesting perspective yesterday about how the current big earthquakes are occurring in the area that is called "The Ring of Fire". What a time to be living...to see this and how through these events it would seem that prophecy is jumping off of the pages of the bible and happening before our very eyes! It reminded me of Luke 21:25-26: “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men's hearts will fail them for fear and for looking upon those things which are coming on the earth;" and Matt 24:7 "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.". I know we can't quote blogs here, but the one I read did make some interesting parallels between the Ring of Fire and the verse about birth pains. It got me thinking about all of this and how close we must be to hearing the trumpet sound! When a woman is in labor, the contractions (birth pains) occur to cause the baby to be moved down through the birth canal and to prepare the woman's body for the baby to be born. When the baby's head is crowning, there is a sensation that occurs that is also called "The Ring of Fire": the pressure of the baby's head causes the area to be stretched to it's limit, and the result is an extreme burning sensation as the baby's head presses up against the tissue, almost causing it to tear (thus the term 'ring of fire').

    The contractions that we are seeing on the earth are coming very close together, and now with all of this talk about the huge earthquakes and devestation in the Ring of Fire it would seem that 'the baby's head is crowning'! From a labor standpoint, when the doctor can see the baby's head, the contractions are at full speed and that's when it's time to really PUSH. The woman bears down with all of her might and focuses everything in her to pushing the baby out. It's a time of intense focused pressure. Once the head crowns, the woman knows that there are usually only a few pushes left and then WHOOSH! The baby is born and it's all over. The blessed event has happened.

    I can't help but look at the devestation in the ring of fire (and see the geologists's on tv saying that this 'area' is waking up and the US should be prepared as more earthquakes may be imminent) and hope that the 'head is crowning' and that the rapture is near! Now more than ever I feel like the Lord has been showing me that we need to be as spiritually ready as we can be, get very bold for Christ, and trust in HIM! I still believe that in the midst all of this, we are going to see him move in a mighty way that will be apparent to all who know him, that it could only have come from HIM! And that as a result hearts will turn toward him as never before. We need to be crying out to God on behalf of those we love who have not yet turned from sin and turned to Christ for salvation!

    According to IRIS, they've been hit with two 5.7s, a 6.1 and a 6.8. I can't imagine how frightening this must be and how difficult this last year has been. They just commemerated last year's EQ and tsunami.

    The Cascadia Subduction Zone could be far worse than the Japan quake/tsunami. The last time it had a quake, forests sank below sealevel from Northern California to Washington and died. They call them "Ghost Forests." The best research I have seen on the CSZ is out of Oregon State University. The next quake, whenever that is, will destroy the west coast. Potentially having tsunami heights as high as a 100'. Japans tsunami was only 30' tall.
    great, right up my ally. I wonder how far inland the damage would go?

    And from Isaiah 24-

    The floodgates of the heavens are opened,
    the foundations of the earth shake.
    19 The earth is broken up,
    the earth is split asunder,
    the earth is violently shaken.
    20 The earth reels like a drunkard,
    it sways like a hut in the wind;
    so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion
    that it falls—never to rise again.

    21 In that day the LORD will punish
    the powers in the heavens above
    and the kings on the earth below.
    22 They will be herded together
    like prisoners bound in a dungeon;
    they will be shut up in prison
    and be punished[a] after many days.
    23 The moon will be dismayed,
    the sun ashamed;
    for the LORD Almighty will reign
    on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
    and before its elders—with great glory.
    All of Isaiah 24 is applicable to earthquakes unfortunately, in that it falls on everybody.

Apparently he predicted the quake in Seattle during the world series only four days before it happened. He is really putting himself out there too with such a bold statement that this quake qill happen this coming week! We'll see. Hoping he's wrong on this one!!

    I, too, have a "left behind" letter in both my bedroom and next to my computer. I also wrote in the prayer journal that I keep in my car, that if people suddenly disappear, then the finder needs to read all of my tweets on twitter and the letters in my home! I also referenced the file I have on my computer called "witnessing", which has my past emails to friends and family and prophecy explanations/timelines in it. You never know...I'm hopeful that if we are raptured before my family members come to faith in Christ, then they will see these things and realize what has really happened.

    I tend to think that there may be a large earthquake at the same time as the rapture, and it will be an easy way to convince people that we are all just "missing' because of that. There are many possible explanations that they will give, with the whole UFO deception thing possibly being one of them if there isn't an earthquake at the same time.

    Great idea!I need to get busy with that! :woohoo It sounds like the Lord has also already convicted you to talk to your landlord as well. Make haste before the time is up! He will give you the words that she needs to hear. Tell her you've not lost your mind, but have found your hope!

    For sure there will be disaster at the least with all the unmanned cars, planes and boats and air traffic controllers! That in itself is going to rival a worldwide earthquake. I tend to think no earthquake at the same time because then our disappearance would be written off to victim of it rather than victorious in Jesus! Especially since they will be looking for an excuse to explain away our disappearance!

    I've been giving this a lot of thought lately myself, and when thinking about the day of Noah, when he was "preserved" through the flood, everyone else was going about their normal routine, but Noah wasn't. God told Noah, and Noah tried to warn others. They would not listen. So, although the others were going about their normal routine as though nothing were happening, Noah knew better, because he listened to God.

    In the case of Lot and his family, - what if Lot had refused to go? What if he hadn't listened? All of the others in the city were going about their normal routines of sin, giving no thought to the fact that something major was going to happen. Lot was the only one with a heart for God, - the only one IMO God could get through to, therefore he was saved, - removed from the situation.

    So, I guess my point here is, - yes, I believe the majority of the world will be going about their normal day and routines, giving no thought to the fact that "today" may be the day, however for those of us who know him, we will know that it is very close, and we will be prepared to drop everything and go when the heavens open up!

    I do not think we will have much warning on the actual "day" of the rapture, - but we will know when it is near, and I believe most or all of us are truly feeling the nearness of our redemption.

    I have been preparing little things, like organizing, throwing things away, making sure my financial things are in order, etc. so that someone left behind may benefit from these things. Other than that, - just waiting, watching, and praying!

    Ready to go home soon!
    The days we live in sure are interesting... I am praying right along with you, as far as preparing for the Rapture, the greatest preparation I am doing is with my heart, continually trying to be what the Lord would want me to be... whatever I own and is left behind when I am taken is just that left behind. I think we should go about our business with a Godly mindset and a ready heart knowing the Lord can take us at any minute...
