Preppers or Survivalism, emphasizes self-reliance, stockpiling supplies, and gaining survival knowledge and skills. The stockpiling of supplies is in itself a very wide spectrum, from survival kits (ready bags, bug-out bags) to entire bunkers in extreme cases. Survivalists often acquire first aid and emergency medical/paramedic training, self-defense training (martial artsfirearm safety), and self-sufficiency training, and they often build structures such as survival retreats or underground shelters that may help them survive a catastrophic failure of society.  Their mindset is basically, when all around them fails and turns to rotting custard, then they have beforehand taken all the necessary actions and activities, to come through the disaster/war/the what-ever with life, health and the necessary equipment to rebuild and to survive, to repopulate and to live onwards on this earth.  There are even “Kingdom Preppers” who are preparing for God to turn up and to reward them and to destroy their enemies before them, to set up his kingdom here on earth shortly, trying vainly to prepare for an ‘Earthly Millennium.’  So how prepared are you for the next storm, a flood, famine, pandemic or a war, oh and are you ready for when God is going to turn up shortly for his people, and Time sweeps into Eternity??

Even Noah could well be categorized as a ‘Prepper,’ as he built an Ark, filled it with all the necessary supplies for the troublous times ahead, and to give them the tools, seed, creatures and animals and equipment to start all over once more after the earth is wiped out of all living inhabitants, with three fit young sons, their fit young daughter-in-law’s, they had all the necessary situation for healthy children to be born after the disaster, and life would be able to go on once more, to re-populate the earth and to provide more people to grow crops, build buildings, to plant and to harvest, make tools and equipment, man power, workers, so I guess that Noah sort of was a ‘Prepper.’  Revelation 20:12-15 and Revelation 21:1 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”  “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”  This world is shortly going to be melted down, all that we see is going to melt down and burn up, worse than any fire storm here, God is offering the only escape plan, and that is available to all, but only those ‘Preppers’ of his who have their lives in order and are always ready and prepared, and they will survive to live again in a brand-new world, ‘The New Earth,’ Noah started out after this world was washed clean in a universal annihilating flood, the next time is a universal annihilating flood of fire, so are you fireproof in Jesus?

Quote; “Get ready, get ready, get ready. Ye must have a greater preparation than ye now have, for the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate and to destroy the sinners thereof out of it. Sacrifice all to God. Lay all upon His altar–self, property, and all, a living sacrifice. It will take all to enter glory. Lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, where no thief can approach or rust corrupt. Ye must be partakers of Christ’s sufferings here if ye would be partakers with Him of His glory hereafter.”  Heaven will be cheap enough, if we obtain it through suffering. We must deny self all along the way, die to self-daily, let Jesus alone appear, and keep His glory continually in view. I saw that those who of late have embraced the truth would have to know what it is to suffer for Christ’s sake, that they would have trials to pass through that would be keen and cutting, in order that they may be purified and fitted through suffering to receive the seal of the living God, passing through the time of trouble, to see the King in His beauty, and to dwell in the presence of God and of pure, holy angels.  {EW 67} 

And they that were ready went into the Ark with Noah and then the door was shut, the five wise bridesmaids went in unto the wedding and then the door was shut.  Preppers are always ready, so are we all going to Hell in a handcart??  Are you and I ready to stand before a Holy God with our hands and lives cleaned, all traces of sin washed away repentantly through the blood of the lamb?  If not ready, then why not, when will you start, Hebrews 3:15 “While it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.”  Quote; “Get ready, get ready, get ready. Ye must have a greater preparation than ye now have, for the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate and to destroy the sinners thereof out of it. Sacrifice all to God.”  God is judging everybody who has ever lived, carefully measuring and weighing every thought deed and action, and the ending verdict is either ‘Eternal Life’ or ‘Eternal non-existence,’ and that verdict stands forever, so what side do you stand upon?  Very soon, or maybe judgement has already passed from the dead onto those living today, as the courts of heaven weigh and decide each case of each and every person, God’s Kingdom receives another citizen, or loses a citizen, Daniel 5:27 “TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.”  What are you preparing for by action or inaction, either way you are a “Prepper” for some reward, but what is it, and do you need to change now to achieve a greater reward?
