1989

In the late 1980s, there were no websites as we know them today. Most people accessed the internet through text only displays. This site started with the Rapture Index. The weekly updates were posted in newsgroups like: alt.bible.prophecy or alt.christnet.second-coming.real-soon-now.

1993

To keep track of the data for the Rapture Index, a program called 1PC.exe was put into service. Notice the blue screen and the terrible graphics. This was more of a program than a code, worst of all there was no cut and past function, so all text had to be hand copied. Click on the picture to view the page.

This was what the site looked like in 1995. This is the first web format and was hosted by Novia.net. At the time, RR only had seven articles. Because most people could only access the net at 1200 baud, there was no room for graphics. Click on the image to see more.

This is the Cincinnati look for Rapture Ready. The web designer who we hired to create a banner of RR used the skyline from Cincinnati. Several people who lived in that city contacted us and jokingly asked if Armageddon was going to begin in the Buckeye State.  If you are interested to see where we have come from, click the image.
