Prepared for Survival

Elijah called out to Israel: “How long will you be limping between two different opinions? If Jehovah is the true God, follow him; but if Baʹal is, follow him!” But the people did not say a word in answer to him.”

The Israelites struggled with the basic question associated with their survival – “whose side are you on?” and right now billions are answering by their opposition and silence.

Planning to survive isn’t the same as being prepared to survive. Most weeks I watch local offshore fishermen grab their life buoyancy vest and throw it on their boat. In a recent accident the fisherman had his life vest on board so he was planned to survive any incident but when it happened he wasn’t wearing it. Planning and preparation.

We can be the same we tell everyone we have our plan ready, we have all the equipment but if it isn’t in the right location for use then it is wasted.

Preparation involves more than having a plan, we must follow through and raise our state of awareness, resource our survival plan and ensure we have it with us ready for use.

Psalm 37: 10 begins with the words “Just a little while longer…” doesn’t that sound imminent? Jesus in Matthew 24 listed the signs and Revelation described the events.

However, just like the days of Elijah we are heading for the reckoning. This system of globalism and government is ending, it is unsustainable and millions no BILLIONS are totally unprepared for survival.

One scripture has always captured my attention Psalm 146: 3 “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.”

No human government can ever guarantee your survival and what they achieve has limited effects.

How do you Prepare?

The first thing is recognise the danger, perceive the range hazards and the mitigate the risk by thorough preparation. Hopefully the reader realises I’m not one of those Christians that say “accept Jesus as your personal saviour and that means you’re saved”

Jesus didn’t say nor did the Apostles notice Jesus words in Matthew 7: 21 “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will.22 Many will say to me in that day: ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’23 And then I will declare to them: ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’

He did go on to tell us what happens in the next illustration Matthew 7: 24 “Therefore, everyone who hears these sayings of mine and does them will be like a discreet man who built his house on the rock.25 And the rain poured down and the floods came and the winds blew and lashed against that house, but it did not cave in, for it had been founded on the rock.26 Furthermore, everyone hearing these sayings of mine and not doing them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.27 And the rain poured down and the floods came and the winds blew and struck against that house, and it caved in, and its collapse was great.”

The Discreet person hears Jesus sayings and does them. So the first element of our preparation is to read the Bible, understand the signs, look at the conditions we face and identify where we are in the stream of events. Again in Matthew 24 Jesus made it clear when we see things happening then that is the time to take action.

If you have ever been in a burning building you’ll know you never wait for the fire to reach you before you start to think about escape. As soon as you are aware, you know what you are going to do, hopefully you have had the chance to practice it and you get out of there raising the alarm as you go.

The American Military have the mantra – leave no one behind – well Jesus had the same approach as his father note the words in in 2 Peter 3: 9 “Jehovah is not slow concerning his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire anyone to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance.10 But Jehovah’s day will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar, but the elements being intensely hot will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be exposed.”

Do not be misled, we face the near extinction of humanity and we have the choice, survive or die.

Choose to survive and begin your preparation now. Study the Bible, link to a free bible study course we are not afraid of the future we are prepared for it. Israel was told to Stand Still and See the Salvation of Jehovah, this is not our battle therefore we need to pick a side, listen to the commander of Gods forces and be ready for survival.

Remember Zephaniah 2: 3Seek ye Jehovah, all ye meek of the earth, that have kept his ordinances; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye will be hid in the day of Jehovah’s anger.” the only doubt is where we stand because for as long as we limp along on two sides we are only assured of not surviving.

We don’t need guns, stock piles of gold and silver, an underground bunker, we need to acknowledge Jehovah God, Jesus his appointed King and prepare our selves and family for survival.
