Rapture Mountain: Where No Skier Gets Left Behind
A Prophetic Novel from Don Mercer
There is widespread agreement among conservative Bible scholars that we are living in the prophesied last days and the removal of Christians from the earth via the supernatural event known as the rapture is at the door. Many have authored books about what occurs after the rapture during the tribulation period when all hell breaks loose on those that are left behind. But what is God doing today to maximize the number of souls he will rescue and minimize the numbers of those left behind to suffer His wrath?
In military terminology, He is preparing the battlefield by moving His assets into the attack position. In other words, He is gathering and placing select people to perform tasks that will alert people to the times and what they must do to be saved. Rapture Mountain presents a likely method God has chosen to accomplish the mission.
It is unlikely you have ever read a novel like this one. It is a supernatural mystery story understood through a biblical lens mixed with prophecy, an evangelical message that transcends time, some romance, considerable humor, a dash of conflict and authored over a period of more than thirty years. Some of the events are real, experienced by the author over a span of 50 years (actual names, dates and locations were altered), and many of the characters are based on real people. It is also unlikely you have experienced such a unique book format. Most of the book covers only a few hours of time as Steve and Beth make their life’s story come alive for their grown children. There are no chapters. Rather, the events occurring over a period of over 20 years are portrayed through a series of flashbacks and real time. To avoid any confusion, the manuscript clearly labels which time period is being presented; REAL TIME or FLASHBACK.
My hope is that you will be inspired to further study prophecy recorded in about thirty percent of the Bible. I challenge the reader to view the book as an evangelical tool to share with others who know little or nothing about the Bible and salvation. Do what Jesus commanded you to do: spread the gospel. One way to do that is to give others a copy of the book and open the door for their salvation. Time is short. “I guarantee it!”
In his exciting novel, Rapture Mountain, Don Mercer takes the reader on a thrilling trip into a future time. This novel would currently be classified as fictional; however, in the near future, it may be telling a story that is very much based on reality. Many authors have attempted to depict a future time in Bible prophecy but sadly have strayed from the Scriptures. However, Don Mercer has portrayed the prophecies written in the Holy Scriptures accurately. As I read this manuscript, I couldn’t put it down, as each page drew me into the next encounter. You will become very captivated with the personalities in Rapture Mountain, and it will fuel a fire for greater understanding of end time events.
Don Mercer is a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel and C.I.A. Operations Officer and through his deep involvement with Christian ministries, he reveals both practical and spiritual understanding of what is to come. Most people have only a veiled understanding of the future events and how they occur that are prophesied in the Holy Bible, and for many, deep biblical research is difficult. Don simplifies the end-time events showing how they might eventually take place. Christian movies and novels that are Bible-based can reveal prophetic truths in an entertaining way. While this book will reveal a deeper understanding of Bible prophecy, it is also an interesting and exciting novel that is a joy to read.
There is an old expression that goes something like this … the highway of life is paved with many attractive parking places. One of those tempting detours can be found in Don Mercer’s prophetic novel, Rapture Mountain, the story of a simple family vacation that turns into the adventure of a lifetime.
Ex-CIA Operations Officer, Don Mercer, a long-time student of Bible prophecy with a passion for the lost, will introduce you to a one-of-a-kind, too-good-to-be-true ski instructor who appears to know the future. Who is this mysterious time traveler and what does he have in store for this innocent family of unbelievers? Who are his mysterious companions and why do they all have familiar biblical names?
Mercer takes his readers straight to the slopes, where they will experience a series of twists and turns that expose the supernatural side of life, all experienced over a 20-year period of flashbacks and eerie “coincidences.” This road map to the rapture skillfully combines the Bible’s 2500-year-old prophecies with current world events, highlighting the nearness of the rapture of the church and reaching the lost with a clear Gospel message. The title says it best … Rapture Mountain, Where No Skier Gets Left Behind!
