    This item is vastly overpriced. You can do the same with a circle of rocks and tin foil. Anyhoo, what are you Christian folks doing prepping? We have passed from judgement into life, thanks to the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Why would the Body of Christ ever go through the Great Tribulation, even half-way? Is His blood not powerful enough to cleanse all your sins? Think about it.

    Joseph was a righteous man and he stored up for what was coming. We are not blind to what is coming, why ‘WOULDN’T’ Christians prepare. How wonderful even a testimony if we did not need it to help others in need, but that someone ‘Left Behind’ came across our stash? Yes, I believe it is a good thing for us to prepare; not out of fear but out of expectation of good things coming from our efforts. Think about it.

    I read Revelation a few times, and looks to me like it said that Jesus comes for his followers right before the day of the Lord’s wrath. The day of the Lord’s wrath is at the end of the tribulation. So it looks to me like Christians are going to experience the “Tribulation of the Saints”.

    Also there are some people who only realize they need to be save by the blood of Christ after the tribulation begins. They will need to be prepared to live through the tribulation as Christians, because they only become Christians after they realize they are experiencing the prophecies of the end times.

    Some Christians will live through the Tribulation of the Saints. You can take that to the bank.

    I don’t plan on surviving the Great Tribulation. I am looking to the high upward call of God. I have passed from judgement into life. Head first or feet first. It’s up to God, however He wants it, fine with me.

    Not for me to say how to spend your money. It has to do with your viewpoint of the Bible. Mine’s dispensational. I think Jesus Himself is coming to get us, as a bridegroom for the bride, as a thief in the night, just as Jews did in their wedding ceremonies in Jesus’ time on earth. You know. The parable of the virgins trimming their lamps. I also don’t think a stash of stuff will leave much of a testimony. Grocery stores and warehouses have that and more.

    I agree with Sonya! I do not plan on going through the Great Tribulation. However, there may be plenty of hard times before we ever get to the Trib. Ask some of the old-timers that endured the Great Depression. Or more recently, the Katrina disaster. You would have told them to “don’t worry about it”???? I don’t know how bad things will get between now and the Tribulation. Makes sense to me to be as prepared as we can be……..then, if we have anything to share with a neighbor, what a great testimony that could be to them! Come on people, think just a little!

    I agree with Sonya (and Dennis) as well! My parents, brother and I are saved, and we will not be going through the tribulation (btw, we subscribe to a pre-trip Rapture), but we feel that things are going to get bad very soon and probably will last through Christ’s second coming and of course will last beyond that for the poor unsaved people who are left behind. We want to live as best we can and also help others (our neighbors) if we can. Why would we not prepare since we know what’s coming? We feel its the ONLY smart thing to do and that God would endorse our actions as well. We cannot and will not stupidly just “wait” for the rapture to come and bail us out of hunger, thirst, disease, etc. and die a horrible death waiting for a rapture that could be 5 years in the future (I’m predicting 2016–2019). This would essentially be suicide/putting ourselves through needless pain and suffering. God tells us not to commit suicide/not to kill ourselves, and is would be suicide not to prepare. To sum it up, we’d rather live in relative comfort & help others UNTIL the rapture happens, and since there are hard times ahead, we’ve felt it prudent to prepare so we can live & minister to others as God has called us to do. You cannot depend on God to just magically “provide” food, water, toilet paper, medicine, etc. even when you’re praying to Him for it, & He may not provide it. His will is not always ours/what we want… Wake up & prepare now. We KNOW that a economic collapse/EMP/maybe both…something horrible is coming. Why not be prepared?? Proverbs 22:3–The prudent see danger and take refuge (prepare), but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

    Also, like “Christians Prepping” said, someone “left behind” in the tribulation could come across our place & stash and be helped by our preps, and they could also become saved (we have bibles all over the house prepped for this just in case the rapture should happen –they could become saved!!). We will minister to people even after we’re gone. What a testimony!!

    Wake up people and like Dennis said, THINK!! Connect the dots. Don’t be “simple” sheeple.

    Yes, there are other ways of cooking your food in a survival situation. Yes, you can even make your own box oven for cooking, baking and dehydrating. But for those who don’t want to fuss, the above is a great idea! Not sure about the price (could probably be bought for less elsewhere), but you should think about investing in something like it so you can have hot meals, bread and dessert!

    Just a thought.

    Ive been storing up extra water and food and such too. I even have extra supplies set aside for my chickens my dog and my cats! I figure if the Rapture happens before it gets too ugly (hopefully) then whoever enters this house will have food, water, weapons for self defense and about 7 different Bibles they can read and numerous books about the end times and the book of Revelation. I even thought about making a note ahead of time telling whoever what has just happened and how they can be saved.

    Hello fellow saints of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the one true GOD. Now I’m not saying that it’s not a good idea to prepare, because it is; especially if the supplies are to be found by the poor souls who will be left behind to experience the tribulation… Of whom I’m not. I will be raptured as I have not been predestined for wrath. GOD said when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh, Luke 21:28. And, “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell on the earth, Rev 3:10HE’s not returning to unbelievers, but only to those looking for Him. That being said, from the sounds of the trib, I’m not sure the sun will be shining in order to use this expensive item; and I don’t think people will be in any condition to be bbq’n. And if there’s no food, then it’s useless. On the other hand, I think it wise to stock up on bibles, bleach, batteries, flashlights, canned goods and water in an effort to help others and ourselves if necessary. GOD Bless you all

    Brothers and sisters, I learned my lesson through Y2K. I stored food, water, you name it. After it was over I reconsidered my planning efforts in light of the soveriegnty of God. Read Proverbs 16:9 and 19:21 concerning the plans of man and the plans of God. If I suffer through some tough times, it is a mere wink of an eye and I’ll do it in the name of Jesus Christ and with praise to my Father. If He wants to send me some food, He’ll send it.

    I’m heaven bound, but right now we lie here, and this being said the crops are dying and food prices are getting extreme in price. A fool would not stock , for the prudent foresee the future and prepare. Seriously, stock up and store water, be there for your family if the prices get so high it’s hard to afford. Yes we are heaven bound, but we live here and need to still eat. Get your head out of the sand, stock for those who may be left here, family members etc. and what will it hurt? How do you know how long we have, can you believe the food prices now? It will get far worse soon as the corn crops died and corn is used on many food items. Look for double prices inallcstore foods.

    You need to read some more scriptures other than Revelation to get the timing of the rapture. Why would Jesus, allow His Bride to go through the tribulation period? Would you ask your bride to get beat up, dragged through the dirt, before your wedding? I think not! The rapture will occur in God’s perfect timing, but we are told that we will be removed before the anti-christ is revealed. Maybe we are prepping for those who are left behind and will need help to survive.

    This is all very nice and sounds really good, but there aren’t any guarantees that our heavenly Father
    will keep us prosperous and wealthy and healthy and never lacking a penny. At this particular time, I’ve been struggling physically for a considerable amount of time and have to spend a lot of time flat instead of up and going. I can’t work because of these physical problems, even thought I really want to. I have a wonderful husband who, doesn’t love Jesus yet, and while I pray for that and for others to bow their knee this side of the rapture instead of “that side” (Rom 14:11 and Phil 2:10-11, every knee shall bow …), this wonderful husband of mine works so very hard and God blesses him and takes care of our every need because I “seek first His kingdom and His righteousness”, Mt 6:33-34. I don’t have any extra money to “go shopping” and purchase things I don’t have a need for right now. I do buy extra water every now and then if I have money for it, but in the day to day, I can say the Jesus makes sure that we have food on our table, fresh water to drink, medicine to help me day by day, car to drive with just enough gasoline, clothes on my back, even if they are used clothes, etc. . . . The most important things He gives me is salvation through the blood of Jesus, His Holy Spirit to help me get through day by day, His Holy Word to full of wisdom and instruction of how to be a good godly wife and a Spirit filled church to attend. I don’t have any extra to “prep” and I trust that God will take care of me as I try to keep my eyes open and my lamp filled and wick trimmed as I wait by the door for Him to come, bringing as many with me that I can. Above and beyond that, I could’t even think of breaking the budget to spend $299 to “prep” when that would take food off my table or gas out of my gas tank so I can go to church. He has ALWAYS been faithful to take care of me and I trust Him to ALWAYS be faithful to provide every need I might have in the future. It’s up to Him to take care of the rest. If He gives me extra money then He’ll tell me what to do with it.

    Regarding Katy’s comment, apparently I am a fool with my head in the sand. Hey, that’s OK. Paul was accused of preaching foolishness in his insistence that Jesus Christ had provided all things and was sufficient for all things. (1Cor4:10-12) “We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are prudent in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are distinguished, but we are without honor. To this present hour we are both hungry and thirsty, and are poorly clothed, and are roughly treated, and are homeless; and we toil, working with our own hands…”. I’ll place my trust in Christ, not in food and water storage. If I suffer for the sake of Christ, it will bring Him honor. I do not think that I am able to foresee the future as some of you do, so I will simply trust in Him. He is bigger than any problems I can foresee. The woman who wrote about not being able to afford to stock up should take comfort in the attitude of Paul… (Phil 4:19-20) “And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen.” Yes, “Amen”.

    The rapture. notice the timing?
    Occurs AFTER the distress of those days.
    Unless you disagree with what Jesus said and prefer to believe what some man has said?

    29 “Immediately after the distress of those days

    “‘the sun will be darkened,
    and the moon will not give its light;
    the stars will fall from the sky,
    and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’[b]
    30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth[c] will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.[d] 31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

    and Jesus expounds on this a few verses later

    36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

    42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

    If your saved reread the bible and get a revelation about the kingdom of God and it’s role in the tribulation.

Because when they did leave, there was a multitude of Egyptians that left WITH them because they believed the power of God!

    Please notice verse 2 here, especially the ‘our being gathered to Him’ This Paul is teaching of the rapture and it is in agreement with what Jesus teaches in Matt 24. This rapture will not come until after the evil one is revealed in the earth. the revealing of the evil one is preceded by a falling away of belief “the rebellion occurs”.
    The one (singular identity) who restrains him is the powerful angel Michael, who has been restraining Satan all thru the events told in the bible. It is not a multitude of people (the church) or God’s holy spirit who is ‘taken out of the way,
    The world has been in rebellion always and not submitting to God, here Paul is talking about the end times condition of the church or those who claim to be believers but by their works deny Him and should be considered reprobate concerning the faith. The apostles all have talked about this future time where the church wont endure sound teaching but heap up teachers according to their own lusts. And Jesus himself said Many walk the path that leads to destruction and FEW walk the path that leads to eternal life.

    The Narrow and Wide Gates
    Matt 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and ONLY A FEW FIND IT.

    2 Thessalonians 2
    The Man of Lawlessness

    2 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. 3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

    5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

    Stand Firm

    13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits[b] to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings[c] we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.

    16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

    Read Romans 9 to understand that when you have decided to believe in Jesus and have been born again that your salvation is by Grace alone and not done of yourselves. This is a hard thing for people to believe but our election is ordained by God and supported by God speaking about his all thru the history of how he deals with men.

    14 What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all! 15 For he says to Moses,

    “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy,
    and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”[f]
    16 It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. 17 For Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”[g] 18 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.
    2 Thess 2:13
    But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning GOD CHOSE YOU TO BE SAVED through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.

    and Acts 13
    46 Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: “We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles. 47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us:

    “‘I have made you[f] a light for the Gentiles,
    that you[g] may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’[h]”
    48 When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed.

    To all those who are adamant of rapture pre-tribulation, all of us who are unsure hope that you are right. It does make me wonder why His Word isn’t 100% clear, and then I stop to think about the verse that says His plans are not ours, and our limited understanding. I feel it is sad if a Christian gets so single-minded about a subject that they actually start to judge others who don’t share their ‘opinion.’

    More on the “Day of the Lord” 1 Thessalonians 5
    This is the same DAY of the LORD that Paul mentions in 2 Thess 2 in regards to that DAY not coming until certain events transpire, one being the failing away rebellion, which leads to the other event, the revealing of the antichrist figure in the world. The sudden destruction mentioned is just that when Jesus returns everything is going to change extremely quick, even ourselves it says will be instantly transformed, there will be very little time left for the wicked. The world will see HIM coming on the clouds of heaven is terrible power and will seek to hide themselves from His wrath and anger but it will avail them not.

    1 Thessalonians 5

    1 Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

    There is much that God teaches about this very certain and particular unique ‘Day of the Lord’ in the New and Old Testaments.

  • #26 written by Scott D

    Paul teaches more on this day in 1 Thess 4
    This coming of the Lord is His coming back and all the earth will see Him event that Jesus mentioned in Matt 24 where He will send out his angels to gather up all of his people from the earth and we will meet Him in the air.
    This is the same Day of the Lord and our gathering to Him will happen fast in an instant, the twinkling of an eye’, not a drawn out long time event at all. Then it says we will always be with Him. Right after we have joined with Him in the lower heavens we come down to earth to rule and reign with Him.

    Jude 14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15 to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

    Believers Who Have Died

    13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

    Most assuredly some of the Lord’s people are still alive on this earth as He says right here. There is no third coming of the Lord, He does not come back to get his people and then leave, and then come back again later on, that idea is not what I see written down in the bible.

    15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.

    scott D you are correct. The Anti Christ must set himself as G-D first. 2Th 2:3 Let not anyone deceive you by any means. For that Day shall not come unless there first comes a falling away, and the man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition,
    2Th 2:4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself forth, that he is God.
    2Th 2:5 Do you not remember that I told you these things when I was still with you?
    2Th 2:6 And now you know what holds back, for him to be revealed in his own time.
    also when Yeshua explains the parable of the wheat and the tares sowed by the enemy. Mat 13:36 Then sending the crowds away, Jesus went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the darnel of the field.
    Mat 13:37 He answered and said to them, He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man;
    Mat 13:38 the field is the world; the good seed are the sons of the kingdom; but the darnel are the sons of the evil one.
    Mat 13:39 The enemy who sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
    Mat 13:40 Therefore as the darnel are gathered and burned in the fire, so it shall be in the end of this world.
    Mat 13:41 The Son of Man shall send out His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who do iniquity,
    Mat 13:42 and shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
    Mat 13:43 Then the righteous shall shine out like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
    IT IS THE TARES WHO ARE HARVESTED FIRST.
    also in the parable of the two in field. Mat 24:39 And they did not know until the flood came and took them all away. So also will be the coming of the Son of Man.
    Mat 24:40 Then two shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
    Mat 24:41 Two shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
    Mat 24:42 Therefore watch; for you do not know what hour your Lord comes.
    Mat 24:43 But know this, that if the steward of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched and would not have allowed his house to be dug through.
    Mat 24:44 Therefore you also be ready, for in that hour you think not, the Son of Man comes.

    Scott: Most people who believe the church will go through the rapture use these verses to try to prove their point. But—there are at least two points to consider using these verses. No. 1–Jesus is talking to his Jewish disciples here before there was a “church”. And note that in verse 31 He will send angels to gather His elect. No. 2- When you look at Paul’s teaching (and remember that Paul was taught by the Lord) you get this wonderful promise.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (KJV)
    16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
    18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    Notice the BIG difference–when the Rapture occurs, Christ Himself will call the dead and the living saints to meet Him in the air.

    In Matthew, he is sending angles to gather His elect. It has been taught by some that this gathering at the end of the tribulation is of those who refused the mark of the beast yet made it through the 7-yr. tribulation! Sounds reasonable to me.

    There are many other verses that show that the church is not intended for God’s wrath, but I will not take the time nor space here to list them all. May God bless you and give you that Blessed Hope talked about in Titus 2.

    I am praying for wisdom in this area because I see a pattern throughout the Bible of God telling his prophets ahead of time of what he intended to do. He doesn’t want us ignorant about the signs of the times and it’s up to us to pay attention. I see examples of God’s providence in scripture of taking people out of the way of destruction, like getting Lot out of Sodom before it went up in smoke, telling Noah to build the ark and protecting him and his family while all others were destroyed. Notice here that all the righteous people ahead of Noah had died before the flood, ending with Methusaleh, who died in the year of the flood. God delivered his people from the Egyptians by opening the Red Sea and got them through on dry ground before swallowing up Pharaoh’s army. God saved the Jews from destruction through Esther getting wind of Haman’s plot, Jonah was swallowed by a great fish, Daniel was protected in the Lion’s Den, the 3 righteous men were protected in the fiery furnace, Elijah was fed by ravens in the wilderness, Paul went through so many trials, beatings, shipwrecks, etc but God kept protecting him. All these people of old went through difficulties but in a protected state, which shows me that God knows everything about you and about the times we are living in. I have to have faith that he is able to give me wisdom to build an ark (store up goods) or remove me from danger when the terrible things predicted in the Bible are happening on the earth. One thing I know for sure is that God never lies and if he says a thing is going to happen, you had better get your hand in his hand.

    Regarding the Rapture, in my earlier Christian days, I subscribed to the pretribulation rapture. Then one day, a lightbulb went off in my head. People always say, “why would God allow his people to go through the tribulation?” Do you realize how arrogant and selfish that statement is? Everyone of Jesus’ disciples including Jesus himself went through hell. Who is anyone to think they deserve better? Yes, we will miss God’s wrath, but I believe we will go through a great tribulation period. It is then where our faith will be tested. Societies throughout history have had to bear their cross.

    what does it mean to be kept from the hour of temptation?

    THANKYOU for your testimony. I have not much extra myself. I and my youngest son are on SSI and it isn’t a lot of money. Even my internet is not very expensive as it cost 40 dollars a month. I am allowed that because of my sons disability of seizures. I have worried about him as he is 16 and wondering how it would be for him if we go through the tribulation.

    The Lord isn’t going to beat His wife. Christians will be taken from this earth in the rapture before God pours out His wrath. I see it happening around the 6th seal of Revelation, but nobody knows for sure. The rapture is the end of the “gentile age” or “church age.” After that time, only Jews can be saved. A remnant of Jews will be sealed by the angels and preserved through the tribulation to populate the earth during the millenium. At least, that’s how I see it. If you are not Jewish, better get ready to meet your Lord NOW. Read the book of Acts – the history book of the Bible showing how people are saved – and get the same experience for yourself: the indwelling Spirit of God manifested by speaking in a language He gives you to praise and communicate with Him.

    that is not to say we won’t go through catastrophic times before the tribulation period? what if Joseph or Noah to your position? maybe the prepping we are doing isn’t for us but for those who will be left behind. can you think of a better testimony for loved ones than I left all this for you to hopefully survive or last long enough to repent? don’t be so limited in you thinking. what if the economy collapses in the next few months, ahead of the rapture and stores are cleaned out?

    amen Allan. I couldn’t agree more. I have been moved to put away alot and what always to comes to mind is Joseph. I may not be here but I have family and freinds who will be and they will need help. a good testimony as well as I have left all kinds of written statements in the stuff as a witness to them as to why they have been given this second chance.

    Blessing to you all, I am probley not as well versed in the Bible as most of you, so please forgive my childish viewpoint on this. But the way I see it, and understand it; First: there is one constant, always be prepared! because we do not know what day, or hour he is comming, and we all have families to feed no matter the circumstances. and secondly, I believe in the Pan-trip Rapture therory because I know that it will all “Pan out” in the end.

    cporter, have you not read Rev. 13:7? Pray tell me if we are going to be gone (the saints–GOD’s children/the bride of Christ) who is Satan going to fight with. This scripture plainly says that Satan will make war with us!!

    cporter, have you not read Rev. 13:7? there will only be one rapture; so if we are gone–where are these saints in this scripture coming from? O-o-o-h I get it Jesus is just going to take some of us and leave some to fulfill this scripture. Have another cup of coffee and wake up.

    Wow, I hate to insult anyone so I’m just going to ask this one simple question….Can anyone of you show me where in the Bible it says that you need to be prepared with one of these ridiculous Global Sun Ovens?

  • #45 written by Carolynne

    Be prepared with whatever God tells you to be prepared with. If your heart is in tune with Holy Spirit (our teacher, our guide, our comforter….the Spirit of Truth)
    then you will know what to do or not to do.
    Praise be to God. He won’t allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear – but will make a way of escape. But be prepared in the way that Holy Spirit tells you to!!

    Amen and Amen

    Doesn’t really answer my question Carolynne. Is this in the Bible? Yes or No? This web site is choc full of scriptural references to “support” all of the End of Days teachings so I need to know where the need, much less sale of this product is referenced in the scripture.

    I do agree with the one who is reminded of Joseph. I don’t think it is the best use of our time to make prepping an issue of faith. It is not a lack of faith in God’s provision or protection to carry arms or store up food and other necessities. Nehemiah’s men were armed while rebuilding the temple. Joseph stored up excess food and grain for years of famine.

    God, is not Santa Claus he doesn’t just automatically drop delivery of goods while we sit back and relax. We’re expected to work and bring in a harvest. We have a part to play in our own provision and protection. Where we should have faith is that God will allow us to have a job and make money to buy the things we need. That’s how he provides. He expects us to work for it if we are able bodied. Remember, “don’t work, don’t eat”?

    We are specifically told that we will not be removed before the anti-christ is revealed:

    2 Thes 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    The Bible specifically says, repeatedly, that the rapture is the first resurrection, and will come at the Last Trump, after the Tribulation. Very few prophecies are more explicit.

    I would like to think we go early but I think we go through some of it … I mean yeah Jesus has saved us just as his disciples and look what they went thru and how they were killed. The good news God will carry us through ( if we have to go thru it)…and there is a special blessing for those who go out that way… and even as Steven was being beheaded all he saw was Jesus …so we really will be at a different place when it happens. There is much he does to break us to perfect us

    Anyone who believes in Revelations doesn’t realize it is the ravings of a drugged and hallucinating man who ate mushrooms on the Isle of Patmos.

    Stop wishing for the end of the world and start working to make it the paradise that is possible.
