Many of the links posted on this blog to the Rapture In The Air forum may no longer work because the moderators there have scurried off to another corner of the internet to continue their practice of divining spirits and worse at a new location called "Rapture In The Air Now".

The High Priestess of Rapture in the Air




 
Folks, the e-mail below is from Humbly Irrelevant, a former member of the Rapture in the Air forum, whose permission I have to post this. After reading it, I think it will further enlighten you as to what is occurring on that forum under the reign of High Priestess Donna Cothran and her forum Pharisees.   

(God Bless you Humbly Irrelevant!) 
This post was added on January 27, 2011.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ATTY:

I dug up your email address from one of your old posts at RITA, and I hope that this email reaches you. I forewarn you that this will take more than a couple of minutes to read.

A friend of mine recently provided me the link to your website, and I have been reading what is happening since your departure.   I know that you left RITA quite some time ago, I understood why you left, I was sad that you left, but I didn’t know where you went.   Now that I’ve found you, I hope that you won’t mind me sending this to you, and since this is from my work address (and thus susceptible to corporate screening and ramifications), please keep this information confidential between the four of us (Anonymous and Musicman included). I will trust God that this will turn out for Good, in the Name, the Blood, the Power, and the Authority of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

From your first appearances at RITA, I have always agreed with most everything that you, Musicman, and Anonymous (a strong semblance to a poster named Bobby) ever wrote at RITA, and continue to write at your Blog. I connected with you all in what you were saying, why you were saying it, but was hesitant to embrace the force employed as to how these messages were conveyed.  Thus, my strategy for bringing those in darkness out into the light differed from the in-your-face approach.  Thus, I was a little misunderstood, and because my motives were more veiled, the following comments ensued:

Anonymous said...
“Humbly likes to stir up controversy at RITA, trouble is he doesn't know if the wind is blowing from the North, the South, the East or the West… He is a mass of contradictions… He has allowed the emotional side of his brain to override common sense… You are a hypocrite Humbly… Get off the fence and take a stand for the Lord…You are not the star of RITA with your poetry, you are just another guy who more often than not lately seems deceived.”

Musicman said…
“As soon as I post what I think is someone waking up from the fog that is RITA, do I have to step back and realize that nothing changes. Humbly, in his normal tail-tucked-between-his-legs fashion comes back and apologizes for everything he said and of course has to write another poem about it. what would have been wrong with just standing your ground, Humbly? You were right in everything you said. But as usual, you realize that you were actually leaving and you wouldn't have anywhere to go to be accepted. No one to read your poems? Are you afraid to stand out in the rain when you know full well that the people with the umbrellas are wrong?”

Believe it or not, I agree with most of what Musicman and Anonymous have stated here.  In my attempt to shed the Light into darkness, I did become a mass of confusion and a walking contradiction. I don’t deny that this was the outcome, but  if you will bear with me, I would like to provide a little background about what the strategy was for my intentions.

When I joined RITA back in 2007, it was a different place with a different atmosphere.  The site was filled with wonderfully-read, foundationally-sound Christians who could discern which way the wind was blowing.  The audience was much smaller, and Lynn didn’t need to keep that strong of a finger on the pulse.  However, things changed in 2007 when a guy named Chris predicted a Rapture date in August.  He based this “ABSOLUTE” prediction (exactly like CJ would later) because of being “jolted awake by the Holy Spirit” with a message/revelation.   I spoke out against this numerous times -- as I did with CJ when he first appeared on the scene (and his protector Kevin), and then later with Raul, Star and every other deceiver that came along. I called them all out by name.  What shocked me with Chris, and then Raul, and then ultimately with CJ and Star, was that the forum didn’t care anymore about TRUTH and what the Bible had to say about false prophets and wolves in sheep’s clothing who infiltrated the sheepfold. Even worse, the Mods now embraced these false prophets and set the tone for all other members of the forum.

Since I believe that I was led to the forum to post poetry (which you can believe or not believe was inspired by the Holy Spirit) to touch maybe one or two people out there with each poem (obviously, people like Musicman and Anonymous are not amongst those one or two people), I wished to continue to allow myself to be led by the Spirit to post what I strongly believe He places into my head for His Glory and for the edification of those in need of His Light.  I constantly struggled with what He wanted me to speak, and not letting my own human ego get caught up in the emotional responses.  As I stated many times, I just wanted to employ guerilla tactics by posting-and-running.   If I returned to a post out of curiosity, I would get caught up in the responses.   I just wanted GOD to be in what I posted and not me with the responses.  It is difficult to be human and to be totally selfless.  I am in no way, shape, or form a role-model for perfectness.

As things began to sour over time, I still was reluctant to burn the bridge that I felt the Lord wanted me to cross with His occasional Words (written through my poetry). At the same time, I also wanted to make it known that I was having trouble coping with all the new posters who were encouraged to come in with their strange doctrines.  I don’t believe Lynn was culpable in this mess, as she was experiencing the power-struggle at the time; however the others were guilty of ignorance, or worse, intentional deceit.  They wished to expand their audience at RITA at all costs, and allowed everything except discernment or disagreement with their opinions.  Just as long as you agreed with them, or acquiesced to their “righteous knowledge” (sic), then you could continue to post without being banned – as long as you were mushy-gushy and “tolerant” of others (although the Mods could be intolerant with anybody who contradicted their strange doctrine).

After taking a hiatus for a couple of months, the Mods began to email me and ask me where I had gone (Donna gave out this email address to the others without my permission – including the latter Mods like Tom and Paul). I guess the board had gotten slow, and they were trying to create some action.  Because we had been on friendly terms in the past, they looked to me for assistance -- and not yet knowing the full extent of their agenda, I explained to them my great concerns about the direction of the forum and how false doctrine had crept in while they were asleep and being unaware.  I explained that they had mistaken “tolerance” for “love”.   I showed them many examples, but they closed their ears and danced around the issue.  I had no idea that they had changed their paradigm completely, and they now went as far as to tell me that I was worrying about things that were “innocent”, and there were a lot of “na├»ve” people whom they were trying to reach. 

I told them that it was a dangerous thing to allow a little leaven into the mix, but they ignored me.  After I posted in anger on several occasions, I was met with severe resistance from not only the lost sheep that I was trying desperately to protect (I guess I was some kind of Don Quixote just chasing after windmills), but also received chastising emails from Tom about my “behavior” and that I needed to cease and desist from “stirring the pot” or to risk being banned.  From the last responses I received from Lynn and Paul, it appeared that they agreed with most of what I said, but were somehow powerless to do anything. I didn’t understand the incredible power struggle that was occurring at this time until I received one final response from Tom.

My last response back to Tom had stated that I could not just sit idle while the board went to hell, and I delineated the facts (with examples) of how CJ was a false prophet, a plagiarist, selfish, immature, uneducated, an egomaniac, a seeker of adulation and worship, insecure, a glory-hunter, and was only concerned with his own feelings of self-worth –- not even caring about glorifying our Lord or edifying others.  Unbelievably, Tom responded to me that he didn’t care about all that, that CJ was one of their “favorites”, and that they would protect him and help him to grow.  He told me in no uncertain terms that if I didn’t like it I could get lost along with my attitude.

Since I still believed that I was led to RITA for a reason (Don Quixote and those windmills again), and that God still had it upon my heart to make a difference at that cesspool of gibberish and evil, it was at this point that I briefly began to post as Wilderness Voice – a John the Baptist type who was crying in the wilderness of RITA trying to get the attention of the lost sheep and explain what was happening due to the lack of discernment from the brood of vipers.  Most of what I wrote was directed at the Mods, but I couldn’t actually come out and say that because that thread would be deleted immediately and I would be banned.  The message would not get out, and nobody would hear the TRUTH.  So I was forced to devise another strategy.

Being caught “on the fence” like Anonymous and Musicman clearly opined (although I believe I was misunderstood while I was speaking at the Mods and not at them), I was trying to remain at RITA to reach a few more before I left.  I needed to tone down my righteous anger and still attempt to get through to somebody – ANYBODY!!!   Thus, the anomaly occurred where I would on the one hand illuminate the folly of the Mods, while on the  other hand defend them and say nice things so as to not bring to their attention that I was actually identifying them as the worst sort of offenders to allow all this “junk” on their site.  It repulsed me to be in such a predicament, and although I pled with the Lord to free me from this, He still put it on my heart to remain there awhile longer for some purpose.   Although I struggled with this, it appeared necessary that I keep that bridge open in case the Lord wished to use me in some way.  And at the very beginning of this year, the Lord plastered one more poem in my head, had me post it, and I felt relieved that I may finally be done with this rollercoaster ride.

Well, guess what?  The Lord hasn’t led me to even think about RITA anymore, or to post there.  I have deleted the link, as well as Five Doves (which is also a complete mess with their little coffee club clique.  I believe that my little ministry (maybe I’m delusional) is done, and I don’t need to feel compelled to go back.  What little impact my voice had is in the past, and anything that I could now say at these forums would have no positive impact in anybody’s salvation.   People’s minds are made up, and the END is near.   

Although I may think what is posted at those forums now is repulsive, repugnant, reprehensible, and utterly opprobrious, I believe God feels even more strongly about the abominations promulgated there.  I would say “God help these people”, but I don’t think that they will allow His Spirit to move within them anymore.  I am now waiting quietly and patiently for God to move me however he wishes to move me in the next direction until the day He comes to Rapture us.

Maybe we are so close to the end that there is not much more to be done.  People have heard the Word, but they adamantly CHOOSE to ignore it and listen to idiots who wish to proselytize their itching ears with false doctrine.   I have washed my feet of the dust of their folly, and have moved on.  If I said any of this at RITA, it would be deleted, so what would be the point.  Hopefully, maybe you can share this (without my personal info) and it will shed some light at your Blog for those who are in darkness to be exposed to the TRUTH (and set free from the folly that has occurred/ is occurring at RITA).

I somehow felt compelled to write this to you (and Anonymous and Musicman) because I want you to know that I am in your court.  I support your quest to reach out to the lost before it is too late.  Let us hope that even ONE person is saved from an eternity in the infernal fires of the enemy.   Continue to fight the good fight, for it truly is a fight to the end.  Nothing is easy about reaching the lost who don’t want to be reached. 

Please forgive the length of this tome -- I don’t know if this information will be of any insightful significance to you, but it sure was cathartic to me. Thanks for listening, Brother.


God bless you ATTY!

Well, it turns out the false teaching, divination and every other false spirit coming out of the Rapture in the Air site was not the doings of Lynn, the original forum operator, but those who essentially wrestled away control of the site, and drove her away. 


Here are some of Lynn's recent posts...

Dear ATTY,

I must correct you on a statement you made about me being the high priestess at RITA. I have severed all ties with RITA and I did this several months ago. I did not like the way Tom conducted himself or Donna and Kolleen as moderators. I did not condone the direction RITA was going as it was not God's leading for RITA to go as was orginally intended. Basically, Tom took over and told me to get lost. I have nothing at all to do with RITA, as a matter of fact I do not frequent RITA much, if at all. What I do frequent is your blog and have come to agree with you and musicman on the state of RITA and RFTH. I guess we are all in agreement as to the condition of RITA. RITA is a place that I do not recognize nor do I condone the filth and untruths that are represented at RITA. I am disappointed in Donna as she has gone off on some power trip and has lost her focus on her true beliefs. All I can say ATTY is I am not longer a part of that group and I do not align myself with them in any way shape or form.

Blessings,

Lynn

ATTY,

I will be honest with you all. By the time I left RITA for good I was pretty much burned out with running the forum. It had been 5 plus years since I had established RITA and had been left pretty much by myself to moderate RITA for a very long time. I could not count on Donna to be there to help moderate and Brenda had work and family obligations that didn't give her much time to watch over RITA. I honestly tried to keep all the foolishness you see now on RITA to a minimum. The problem with trying to moderate a board by yourself is that you miss a lot of garbage, but I tried to remove the silliness and I stayed on CJ for all the date setting and prideful absolutes about when the rapture would take place. I stayed on him like white on rice about the plagiarism and not giving credit to those who did his research for him and he in turn stole their words and work only to make people believe that he was the author of all these "great" studies. I warned Scott several times about the foolish nonsense he posts. I wanted there to be healthy debate and bible study on RITA. I banned people that I thought were disturbing RITA. I am truly sorry that you ATTY and musicman were banned. Yes I had a part in your bannings and in hind sight I was so wrong to try and keep you away from RITA and further more I did not show you the respect you deserved, I do apologize to you both because what I did was wrong and so unfair. Also, Tom and Donna kept telling me I was not mentally stable and that I needed to step away from RITA. Tom and I had some pretty heated email exchanges and I read him the riot act about his behavior and the way he treated people on RITA. In the end I felt that God was urging me to shake the dust from my feet and move forward. I can't stand to go over there and read such pearls of wisdom that are coming from Nikki, Super Kitty, CJ, Tom, Donna, Kolleen, etc. Every day over there is open house for the false prophets, the date setters, Jim Bramlett and the people who worship him as if he where the high priest of RITA and the final authority on all things that concern RITA. These people worship a false god and discernment is not a word that many over there know how spell much less put into practice.

Please forgive my lengthy diatribe, and please forgive me for not backing you up at RITA when you were trying to so hard to get us all to wake up and smell the coffee. I have followed this blog from the very beginning and with each new post I find myself seeing reality through you eyes and I hunger for the truth and you have revealed to me many truths and I thank you for that. Praise God for your ability to wade through the garbage to find the jewels that our Father provides through His Holy Word.

Thank you for letting me say the things to you that I wanted to say for quite some time. I would have posted sooner, but I didn't know how well I would be received, but you have been gracious.

Blessings.................Lynn

ATTY,

When I decided to leave RITA permnantly I had just grown weary with fighting with Tom and having Donna doing and saying things behind my back. Donna had wanted for some time the ability to take over RITA. Her and Tom both, and particularly Tom, took a very liberal view about allowing false teaching, false prophets, plagiarizers, etc. They, basically wanted a kum-by-yah atmosphere and every one to be happy campers. This attitude has allowed the quackery you see today on RITA. Never mind that CJ has violated every copyright law from here to eternity, they just want to go along so everyone gets along. Tom and I did not see eye to eye and there were many argumentative emails exchanged between him and me. Tom and his persona on RITA are all smoke and mirrors, he basically is very manipulative and has a passion for having things done his way or else. I cannot abide this man, and Donna and some of the other mods have fallen into lock step with Tom and march to the beat of his drum.

At one time I believe that God dwelled at RITA and now there is no room for God there as the inflated egos do not allow God to have a place at RITA.

Thank you for allowing me to say a few words to you, you have been very gracious.

Blessings........................Lynn

Wolves In Sheep's Clothing




Are sites like the "Rapture In The Air" (RITA) forum being led by False Prophets?

If you are a Christian or would-be Christian seeking Christian fellowship, beware of the "Rapture In The Air" forum and stay as far away from it as you can.

Let's take a look at just one of the spiritual leaders of that forum, Mr. Jim Bramlett, who has earned the distinguished honor of a permanent post, via his own sticky thread, on that site.

Here are just a few links about Jim Bramlett's false prophecies and teachings. To quickly locate the reference to Bramlett, simply use your browser's search function to find the word "Bramlett" without the quotation marks.

For more links, just Google the name "Jim Bramlett" in quotes with the word "false".

And remember, this is one of the spiritual leaders of the "Rapture In The Air" forum. Sites like this are leading Christians astray with prophecies that never materialize, questionable visions and visitations, and the practice of divination.

There's Something About Rita


The concern being called out here involves the site owner of the "Rapture In The Air" forum, and the deceitful way she is promoting the practice of divination and worse. She is accomplishing this by clandestinely deleting posts and banning members who seek to expose this practice in order to create the false perception that there is a consensus among the so-called Christians there that it is OK and scriptural, when in actuality, those who would have spoken up have been banned or threatened with being banned, to say nothing to the contrary. To object to the practice of divination at the "Rapture In The Air" forum labels you as "being contentious", "mean spirited", etc. and elicits immediate warnings and sometimes outright banning with no warning whatsoever.

Does scripture encourage this? It does not appear to:

1 John 4:1 - Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.


The site owner and moderator at "Rapture In The Air" fights opposition to the practice of divination under the pretense that you are being contentious when you attempt to test the spirits. This of course only applies to those who do not enjoy the privileged status at RITA that is earned over time with a fawning allegiance to the site owner and moderator and a proven deference to her special brand of Christianity and all manner of forum etiquette, however unfair or misapplied it might be.

Of course, any repeated disagreements with the site owner/moderator and her followers about the practice of divination earns you any one or more varieties of names synonymous with "mean", "hateful", "borne of the enemy" and worse. If you attempt to test the spirits of any one member there two or more times, you earn the value-added label of "stalker" and are accused of having no concern for the anxious and emotional well being of that person.




Divining the Future

The Obsession with the Number Eleven
(inspired by the folks at the "Rapture In The Air" forum




Divination of the Dead
(inspired by the folks at the "Rapture In The Air" forum



Folks, if you're a Christian or would-be Christian, take the time to review the posts at "Rapture In The Air" and you'll see no shortage of evidence that divination is practiced there. Instead of Ouija boards, crystal balls, tea leaves and palm reading, members of the RITA forum can be seen almost daily divining the future from the numbers on a sales receipt, digital clock display, or from personalized license plates. Sometimes members report back on their trip to heaven, or on their visitation from angels. Almost nothing is off limits there that one of their members can't find something to divine the future from. 

Questioning the practice of divination at "Rapture In The Air" is not allowed. The moderators there say it would create a contentious atmosphere. 

Others there claim it's the Holy Spirit, but I just don't think so and I'm a Christian who believes in the Holy Spirit. I could be wrong, but I think in many if not most cases people are simply exploiting the Holy Spirit, motivated by their own pride, to legitimize what they're saying. I've always wondered if someone is attributing something to the Holy Spirit that wasn't, could that be considered "blasphemy of the Holy Spirit"? For their sake, I hope not, because the consequences are frightening.


If the "Rapture In The Air" forum existed 2,000 years ago and it's moderators did not know who Jesus Christ was at that time, I am  convinced they would have labeled him mean-spirited and accused him of name calling for some of the harsh things he is known to have said and for testing the spirits.

Jesus referred to others as fools or foolish. Was Jesus mean-spirited or engaging in name calling?

Jesus told the Pharisees that they were a brood of vipers (Mat 12:34) and basically told the Pharisees that their mother essentially shagged the devil when he told them their father was Satan (John 8:44). Was  Jesus mean-spirited or engaging in name calling?

According to the politically correct way the "Rapture In The Air" forum is moderated, the answer to all of the above questions would be YES!

Like the automaton characters in the 1975 movie, The Stepford Wives" who were always happy, and void of any contention, so too are the would-be brides of the "Rapture In The Air" forum, which creates the perfect environment for divination and worse to flourish.

When banned and robbed of the opportunity to test the spirits and rebuke the practice of divination on the "Rapture In The Air" forum, it was communicated to one of the site moderators that a blog would be created to address issues and  concerns that were not allowed on the RITA forum.

Surprisingly, this is what that moderator stated verbatim in quotations, with my comments following in bold blue:

"What you have described you are intending to do is in no way what the Holy Spirit would agree with or authorize." Apparently RITA moderators, just like the Pope, believe that they speak on behalf of the Holy Spirit and what it authorizes.

"You are full of anger and revenge in your heart and will lose many rewards at the judgment seat of Christ if you follow through on your threats against (moderator name withheld) and RITA." Apparently, if you seek an opportunity to voice your concerns elsewhere that were not allowed on the RITA forum, you are full of anger and revenge. The real shocker was the revelation (pun intended) that crowns would be lost by calling attention to their practice of divination. 

"There is NO WAY you can justify any such action.; Repent of your rebellion to authority and be free from that foul and contentious spirit.." Folks, does that second sentence above say it all or not? Even after being banned, they still believe they exercise authority over me. Does this sound like a cult to you?
