Commentary By: Gordon King
While I was in the midst of waking up this morning some thoughts came into my mind. I recalled several posts that I had made about America being attacked. These were dreams that I had over the course of the past few years. This doesn’t seem so odd or significant of itself, however what happened next does.
When I read the comments from yesterday, there was one which immediately caught my eye. One comment about a dream that I had regarding America being attacked, a nuclear attack.
She said that she is from the U.K. and had a dream of driving in the car and seeing explosions far away, she knew that it was America!
The very odd thing about all of this is that I was thinking of these very same things just before I was fully awake this morning! Perhaps it is a confirmation of things to come? Perhaps an attack on America is in the works, and perhaps sooner than later!
I don’t know folks, however I do believe that it is a sign. We all need to be prepared for the worst, be ready for what is coming upon the world. We need to be aware of our surroundings and of the leading of the Holy Spirit within us!
I recently had a request to post more on being prepared for such events. She requested that I post preparation for nuclear, biological, or chemical attacks. At the current time I am just not feeling well enough to research the matter, however, I have made posts on preparation for difficult times.
Whether or not America is about to see another attack soon, we should all be prepared for such an event. We should have shelter and the ability to make a shelter, a supply of fresh water or the ability to get it, food for long-term storage, ability to make fire, a good knife and hand saw, first aid supplies, warm clothing, medications, and weapons for self-defense and hunting. These are the basics my friends, we may require other items in case of an attack or a difficult situation.
There may be other items needed as well in case of a nuclear, biological, or chemical attack. This is something in which I need to do more research. However, being able to seal up your shelter will be vital, so things like plastic and duck tape will be important. Also flashlights, batteries, and emergency radios will come in handy.
None of us like to think about such events, nor do we like to talk about the possibility of them happening to us! However, isn’t it much better to plan ahead in case of emergency than to not do anything at all? Anything could happen, and many people already know what it’s like during emergency situations, such as after a hurricane or tornado. Try to get to the store if it’s still there and you can get to it, then stand in line behind hundreds of other people looking for the same thing! I bet you that most of the shelves will be empty, at least of the things which you came for, because everyone else came for the same thing!
I often hear pastors and Christians say that if you prepare for disaster then you are doing nothing more than fear mongering! They say that we don’t have to worry about such things, just keep your eyes on the Lord. Well, I agree, we should always keep our eyes on the Lord! But, don’t you think that the good Lord wants us to always be ready? Didn’t He tell Noah to prepare for the Great Flood?! Didn’t He tell Joseph to stockpile food for the coming drought?!
Planning for disaster is wise and godly! We already know that times are going to get more difficult, and we know that we are living in the end times, so how much longer before disaster strikes? We live in a world of turmoil and before we know it that turmoil will hit home!
Take this as you will, but it is a warning call for all of us to be ready! Prepare now, don’t wait until disaster strikes, before it’s too late!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
