When Children Go Missing

The red tsunami didn’t happen. Midterm election results fell far short of what conservative, America-like-it-used-to-be voters desired.

Politico-pundits and patriots alike have since dissected and analyzed every facet of what happened on November 8, 2022. Reasons for the failure to produce the red wave (overwhelming victories by Republicans) run the gamut of accusations, excuses, and factual findings.

Many Americans listen only to mainstream news and social media forums that don’t tell the truth and hide important facts about the dire state of the nation. They don’t hear about the true crisis of the country’s wide-open borders, where millions of illegals are pouring through and being distributed throughout the nation by a government now turned toward Marxist-socialist ideology. The people aren’t told the full story regarding the serious tearing-down of the US infrastructure, like oil and gas production within our own resources.

They are oblivious—sometimes deliberately so—to the all-out efforts by the globalists elite to tear down our country’s sovereignty so they can divert United States wealth to fund their one-world order. While these uninformed Americans care about insane, inflation-caused prices and increased personal danger because of rampant crime, the thing that apparently prevented the red tsunami is found in another matter more concerning.

The issue that tipped the balance is maintaining the freedom to abort babies. This was the finding of the exit polls on November 8.

Leading up to Election Day, many of the pollsters said people were not expressing the abortion issue as being important to them. However, after the vote—in exit interviews and beyond—folks were saying they voted for the pro-abortion party candidate. This was the primary reason they gave for voting as they did. It was votes for the right to continue abortion on demand. These voters feared—as surmised by pollsters, pundits, and politicians—that since the Supreme Court recently found the Roe v Wade ruling of 1973 to be unconstitutional, the religious right would control if the red wave prevailed.

To me, the demand to continue slaughtering babies is all-important to consider as we approach the darkest era of human history.

This election-steering determination to rid the world of unwanted children pierced to the core of my thinking on the matter of Rapture. At the moment I sensed my spirit being prompted by the Holy Spirit to think about the abortion demand alongside the Rapture of the Church, I received an email. It was obviously sent by someone who hoped to hook interest in promoting a novel.

But, now knowing more about the author, I know the email was sent with the humble request that the Holy Spirit guide the novel to its target. I’m familiar with that request because I’ve offered them frequently myself in the book-writing, publishing, and promotion process.

The note wasn’t addressed to me personally. It was just a kind of scatter-shot “feeler.” The author’s hope was to, by chance, draw interest in the book.

Well…in this case, it worked.

The novel hit the very spot it was meant to hit. Or, I should say, the topic within the novel hit the target it was intended to hit. That would be yours truly.

Most who are familiar with these commentaries know the abortion issue is one of the key indicators of the lateness of the prophetic hour as we approach the Rapture.

Readers are also familiar with my core belief that God is, by taking all children in the Rapture, going to make a definite statement about abortion, when life begins, and His attitude regarding children who are innocent because they haven’t yet reached the age or maturity level enabling them to decide whether to accept or reject Jesus Christ. As I’ve stated many times, based on how God has historically dealt with humankind, to do anything other than remove these innocent children from the horrific judgment and wrath to come would fly in the face of His perfect character.

The novel slammed hard into my thinking on the voters’ embrace of the right to abort babies by the millions. It is a work of fiction, of course. But I’m convinced that the truth within its pages needs to be shared—particularly with people who have been deceived by those who spread Satan’s lies about killing babies in the womb.

I read (listened to) the book in three settings—a feat I rarely achieve, considering the number of things on my to-do list. I believe that you’ll devour it, too. I’m hoping you will, and then pass the story on to many others, particularly young adults who are exposed to all the lies surrounding the abortion issue.

Here is a brief description I received that got me started reading the book. But to really understand the story’s impact—that when the Rapture intervenes into this judgment-bound world, real lives will be ripped apart—you’ll want to get into that first chapter. I believe you won’t want to stop reading.

Book snippet:

What would you do? Your husband is missing; you don’t want to be pregnant; you witness a horrific airplane accident, and you learn all babies and young children have disappeared. Twenty-eight-year-old Sarah Colton may think she is in control, but she’s far from the truth, not realizing the Rapture has occurred. Enter the writer’s mind as she deals with this imminent, amazing event. (Updated 2022 version of Untaken, originally published in 2017)

When Christ calls the church out of this world, all children—even those just conceived—will go missing instantaneously. The impact of this loss around the globe will be profound, but the way it will affect those like Sarah and others like her will be beyond any description, fiction or nonfiction.

This is why I’ve chosen to promote this book through a commentary rather than a review. Even though I realize that many who follow these columns don’t have an interest in fiction, I’m convinced you will find this one irresistible once you take the chance to start reading it.

Here are the author’s words about her desire to get this story in front of readers: “One thing I must stress is that this is a ministry for me to promote Christ, so I would like the e-book to always be NO CHARGE to anyone who wants it.… This is not about me making any money, but promoting God’s Word!”

While the e-book is FREE everywhere online but on Amazon (they require it to be $0.99), the print copy is $9.99, from which the author makes less than a dollar each. Prices are often fixed by the publishing process and are beyond her control. Having been in the business of writing commercially published books for many years, I can vouch that some of the new, electronic publishing platforms can be simply labors of love on the authors’ behalf.

Such is the case with Untaken:12 Hours Following the Rapture by C. O. Wyler. Out of love for the Lord and for those she doesn’t want left behind at the Rapture, she intends this story to warn of the horrors that will follow Jesus calling the church from planet earth and how the missing children will make that time of Tribulation even more horrendous.

Since the book includes the eternal plan of salvation and is timely to what is happening in the world, it is for both believers and unbelievers.

Today is the day of salvation!

  1. Dave Michaelson says:

    I’m sorry Terry, I humbly disagree with your premise concerning children-all children being snatched away at the Rapture. The main reason is that it goes against what we know from a biblical standpoint during the time of the Tribulation. Number 1 is Israel–why would they have any motivation moving forward in the building of a 3rd Temple? They wouldn’t, meaning the grief, horror and total confusion, even panic at the loss of millions of children couldn’t motivate anybody-let alone Israel to construct a Temple we know has to be in existence for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled. I do not believe most of the children will be removed, in fact just the opposite. I take this from my personal experience. I know I knew the difference between sin and righteous behavior when I was as young as 5! That’s right, the age of accountability is different for every human being, but I felt that was my personal nature to be disobedient to God. Even though at the time I didn’t think of it in these terms. I won’t go into what this disobedience was because such things are not to be discussed among believers! Now, obviously if young people have come to the Lord in humble reserve love of His free gift, they’ll be taken like any adult who professes the same.

  2. Ed Wood says:

    I think anyone before the age of accountability (Mark 10:14b-16), someone lacking the mental capacity to decide, or someone who never had the chance to encounter the gospel of Jesus in the present A.D. time (Luke 12:47-48), those from the B.C. era will be included in the Rapture (Matthew 8:11).

    Dave Michaelson did bring up a good point about children being taken putting a stop to temple reconstruction. Maybe it’ll actually do the opposite in the same way 9-11 filled the churches for quite some time afterward – people were afraid. When something bad happens, how many times do people suddenly get “religious?” And, after a while, all too many just go back to their “standard operating procedure” of putting God back on the shelf once the initial terror subsides.

    Added to the mix is that I think part of the “covenant with many” which will be confirmed by the antichrist will include a temple rebuild – because he has every intention of hijacking it for himself 3 1/2 years later. If this guy is smart enough and shows plenty of false miracles to trick the world to making him a global ruler, accomplishing this will be a cakewalk for him.

    Yet, I also have no doubt there will be children left who willfully rejected Christ, maybe following the lead of their parents or popular rock star, sports figure, school teacher, etc. There certainly are enough of these bad influences around already. Those responsible for causing kids to fall away will ultimately have to pay up themselves as well(Matthew 8:6).

    God is a God of perfect fairness and justice, so we can count on him always to do the right thing.

  3. A Clark says:

    I’m reminded of the Word of Jesus who said to let the children come to him and do not hinder them, or entering into the kingdom of God one must have faith as that of a child. Maybe it depends on the faith of the parents which I believe covers the children until they have to make their decision. But the word also says the Lord had compassion on whom he will have compassion. Regardless of how it goes, on some things that are not clear in scripture, we have to humbly submit it all in his hands and trust him. I don’t think we should go beyond what is taught in scripture. It’s OK to say “I don’t know” and trust God in those things.

  4. Irene Kearns says:

    God’s ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts. He is the Creator of the universe – maker of all things and Sovereign over all humanity. He created man (men, women, and children). He can do whatever He wants and justly so. He is holy and just. We are sinful people and unless we repent for our sin and receive the gift of salvation, which He paid a horrific price for, we are doomed. Romans 3:23 says that “the wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life.” Judgment is coming for every human being. The bible says there will be no excuses when we stand before God because He already knows how we are and what we have done. Will we be found faithful or lacking in relationship to Him. Jesus paid it all and God wants all we are and all we have to give in our relationship with Him. It is only by His grace that we are standing and breathing right now.
