In line with the Boy Scout motto of “be prepared” – preparing for SHTF calamity is what “doomsday preppers” have been wisely doing.
Having a bug-out bag prepared with a minimum five day supply of freeze-dried food, water micro-filter, fire-starters, and other essentials as listed here is of paramountcy. Likewise, having a store of these same items in your home is smart planning. While too many Americans cannot afford it, if you possess the means to have an underground bunker constructed, then you are standing in even better stead.
We in America have been slipping down the steep river bank of economic collapse, but by the grace of God we have yet to become fully submerged in those roiling, raging waters. Still, as Iran threatens Israel and Syria is inflamed, as Greece slips into a limited default while the Euro flags, as Americans suffer the hunger of high unemployment, rising fuel prices, and an overall economy that looks destined for depression – we are seemingly one major world event or national natural disaster away from meltdown.
With the aforementioned “meltdown” will come dangerous civil unrest, and not only in large urban areas. The implementation of Martial Law would be likely, restricting our free movement “for our own safety” of course! Even if there are chemical, biological, or structural hazards on the streets, desperate and enraged groups and individuals will still be out there wreaking havoc; forcing the more law-abiding to remain inside for safety – hence the need to be stocked-up, hunkered-down, and fortified.
We should all be preppers, but in that we cannot forget the most crucial piece of preparation. No matter how much in the way of food, water, supplies, and weapons we have stocked in our storehouses – we need to have the saving grace of Jesus stored in our souls and hearts.
No matter how much advance physical preparation for calamity we undertake, our bug-out bags, pantries, and bunkers may as well be empty because without Jesus we are dead. He is our eternal fortification and the strength to persevere through whatever this fallen world brings to bear upon us.
Without accepting the gift of Christ’s salvation we will know an unimaginable doomsday; but with Him we are truly prepared for anything and everything – and we will be spared terrible wrath.
According to a poll taken over the weekend by German newspaper Bild, 60% of Germans oppose backing more loans to Greece – and yet German lawmakers approved on Monday 02/27/12 a second bailout for the gravely ill nation existing on economic life support.
Despite opposition from within German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, the vote on Germany’s contribution to the 130 billion Euro rescue package passed with a large majority.
The German vote means Greece is one step closer to its second bailout, which was approved by euro area finance ministers last week. It is expected that European Union heads of state will officially approve the bailout package at a summit later this week. Finnish and Dutch lawmakers are likewise expected to approve the bailout.
Greece is on a financial road to ruin, and on that perilous journey will go Europe and America as fellow travelers – on foot. As gasoline prices rise in the U.S. for the twentieth straight day, the hits to a struggling economy keep on happening and the hurts become more painful. Democrats like Massachusetts congressman Ed Markey are urging President Obama to tap into the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, but this call to tap the SPR is likely considered for mere political expediency in an election year.
Greece will again temporarily avert disaster by going out on bail, but America won’t see such a financial blessing. There is no one willing to bail out America but its own government, and the citizenry that funds the system and pays a king’s ransom for fuel and food cannot afford any more “economic stimulus.”
The collapse is being engineered with patience and precision, slowly enough that the sheeple don’t notice yet it is more than obvious to those who watch at the wall. The one world system is coming, being brought on by wealthy elites and secret societies who control the economy today; believing that they will prosper when national borders are brought down, civil and private property rights are abolished, and a new Luciferian religion is installed and accepted by the masses who have been conditioned for decades.
Even those who are the most deeply pacified are familiar with the term “Anti-Christ.”
This may all seem like absolute insanity and you may not yet be convinced, but a one world system where you will never prosper is coming fast. In the intensifying storm of increased instability and upheaval of the Middle East, and with the deterioration of the American and European economies, we are seemingly on the doorstep of a major meltdown.
Keep your powder dry and stock your storehouse. Most importantly: know Jesus, know peace, and you will be spared the coming wrath.
