Rapture Kit Version History

History of Rapture Kit Development

NOTE: The version 1.x Rapture Kit fits on an 8GB USB drive or higher.  The Rapture Kit 2.x version fits on a 32GB USB drive or higher.  When downloading a Rapture Kit, it is recommended to download the full Rapture Kit v2.1 version to your desktop.  From there, additional Rapture Kits can be made for free using your own blank USB drives.  It is not permitted to resell Rapture Kits.

Version 1 – was a physical kit, which included DVDs, books, and a 100-page binder. Shipping and materials made the price point over $100. The desire for this to be a more affordable resource led us to explore other options.

Version 1.1 – the material was put on a Flash Drive with the IAAW logo.  A foam-lined protective case for the Flash Drive was designed and made available; several books were updated, and a children’s book was added.

About this time the website came online. This site profiles Rapture Kit contents and includes an introductory video.

Version 1.2 – Rapture Kits were shrink-wrapped, and .wmv video files were replaced with compressed .mp4 files. Multi-lingual Scripture Booklets were added and organized in a separate folder.  The thinking is these could be shared as an evangelistic tool in over 300 languages and with several titles.

About this time, a tutorial for how to view and add-to the Rapture Kit Flash Drive was added to the website.

Version 1.3 – PDF Bibles were added, including ASV and KJV by user request.

About this time expanded FAQ and Customer Testimony pages were added to the and websites.

Version 1.4 – When the team compressed the main video file, it created more free space on the 8GB USB drive.  We decided to optimize that space by including more resources, all while leaving sufficient free space for the Rapture Kit giver to include their own message and documents.  We added the Post Rapture Emergency Message content in a new top-level folder of the same name.  Then, we added sermons/teachings from Apologist Charlie Campbell, podcast series on the book of Daniel from Nathan Joes and Pastor Vic Bautista, and a 45-part sermon series on Revelation by Pastor Brandon Holthaus.

About this time expanded FAQ and Customer Testimony pages were added to the and websites.

Version 2.0 – Released in the beginning of Q2 2021.  This is a very large expansion of our 1.x series Rapture Kits.  The theme of this version is twofold.  First, we seek to encourage, warn, and disciple a new generation of believers (aka, Tribulation Saints) to fearlessly work for the cause of Christ.  Second, is to come alongside Tribulation Saints in passing on our very best thinking about what the Bible says they will face—along with council, and very strong and direct teachings about how to best face the evil in those days.

Version 2.1 – Released in Q2 2022.  We added all the Post Rapture Emergency Message content.  This includes 3 15-minute audio messages that address a post-rapture listener.  It instructs them on what just happened, what to do now, and where to get the full Rapture Kit resources for free.  Importantly, the English script for these teachings were professionally translated by a certified company in Arabic, Bengali, French, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, and Urdu.

Seeing that we (on this side of the Rapture) are about to hand the baton to “a great multitude” of new believers in the Tribulation Period after the Rapture of the Church, we open our hand and now permit a free “Make Your Own” Rapture Kit and choose which to copy (version 1.4 or 2.1).  The giver of the Rapture Kit supplies their own USB drives, we provide free access to all the content. Our ministry believes it is the responsible thing to do given the urgency of the Lord’s Prophetic timeline.

We believe this is the right time to push very hard so that unlimited Rapture Kits can be created for those that are left behind.

Of course, if there is a preference to donate to obtain the ready-made Rapture Kits that we have already prepared, then that is available at store.  New for us are direct links to our ministry partners so that if a user has an existing account with our partners, they will be redirected there.

The Rapture Kit will continue to grow and mature as the Lord permits and we have time to work on it.  Thank you for your support during these, the last days!
