Biblical prepping for hard times…
Think of all the potentials here... Wars have been started for intense economic pressures in the past. This could escalate in a bad way. Watch it closely as China is under intense pressure lately and this could explode. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/futures-tumble-after-us-restarts-trade-war-china-locks-out-huawei-china-vows-retaliation I am constantly reminded of my mom telling me of her experience as a young girl watching the Chinese Red Army march into Shanghai from the vantage point of her window seat in the evacuation plane that her father, my grandpa, was flying. She told me it convinced her that someday in her lifetime she would see China take over the world. I am not saying that this is the inevitable outcome but only that past and current events scream with much potential that it could happen.
One thing we do know, the economy is being burned to the ground.
So now the modern US citizen has to face: • A collapsing economy (decreased GDP) • Massive unemployment rates • Increased poverty • Overreaching Federal and local governments bent on infringing upon the God given, born with rights affirmed by the law of the land, the US Constitution. • CCP-19 bugger. • Flu (people forget that this kills as much as the CCP-19 bugger and has done so consistently year by year even with a vaccine…) • Murder hornets • Hurricanes (season is upon us now) • A very angry China The list above is not all inclusive as there is likely more to add to it for each and every one of us. What do we do then? How can we be prepared for what is to come? Here is a start: • Get right with God. • Repent of your sins and submit to your Creator and Saviour Jesus Christ. • Pray without ceasing. • Prepare for the worse and pray for the best. • Be a selfless prepper and not a selfish hoarder. o Preparing should not be for self-preservation but for serving others. o Think about what you are gathering for the present and future and how these things can benefit others first and foremost. o (more on selfless prepping below from a Biblical perspective) • Mediate day and night on God’s Holy Word. • Get your mind focused on the realities of all potentials. • Find true believers to fellowship with. If there are none locally seek them remotely through whatever means possible (FB, etc.) • Plant a garden. Indoors or out. o There are many ways to do this and many DIY tips on the internet and in the libraries out there. • Pray that God gives you creativity so that you can help others in time of need… Biblical prepping for hard times: Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth. If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be. He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all. In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good. Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. Proverbs 6:6-9 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. 1 Timothy 5:8 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:12-13 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Mark 10:44-45
