Prepare before disaster or the unknown, it’s not too late!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

I have written many, many times in the past about preparation, in preparing for disaster, in preparing for the unknown.  Now tell me that we are not in those times now!

We must be prepared to meet our maker that’s for sure, but we must also be prudent and be prepared for uncertain times while we are here on earth, this is the wise thing to do.

Many believers wonder why I write about being prepared for such times as these, well, I think the times speak for themselves now don’t they?  I grew up in earthquake country, and I was always taught to be prepared for an earthquake, to stock up on fresh water, on canned foods, on flashlights with batteries, on radios, first aid, medications, and fire starting devices such as matches and or lighters, these were the essentials to have on hand at all times.  But, being poor we really weren’t able to stock up on these things, but nonetheless, I was still taught how to do it and what to do in case of an emergency, and maybe that’s why I am so adamant about teaching it and doing it now.

The bible teaches us to be prepared, Joseph prepared Egypt prior to seven years of famine, and Noah prepared the Ark for a journey at sea that lasted approximately one year.  

Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard!
Consider her ways and be wise,
Which, having no captain,
Overseer or ruler,
Provides her supplies in the summer,
And gathers her food in the harvest.

The scriptures tell us to be wise and prudent, the definition of prudent:

“acting with or showing care and thought for the future.”

We must be prepared for future events, this is prudent in the eyes of the bible, in God’s eyes.

It’s not too late to prepare, and even thought the shelves may be bare in some stores they will be replenished, at least for now.  The prudent thing to do would be to start stocking up on fresh water, food supplies, flashlights, batteries, first aide, medications, etc., it’s also wise to have some cash on hand.  I have written other articles which you can find on this site which will help guide you.  I’m not suggesting hoarding supplies, but simply begin to store them up gradually.

It’s not a question of if disaster will strike, but when?!

It’s always better to prepare before disaster strikes then to try and get what you need once it’s here.  If you wait until the last moment then it may be too late!  You can see that by the mad rush at the grocery store and the bare shelves.

Disaster is Coming! Prepare!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. Beware of false reporting that we will very soon get back to normal.
    It seems that we can tolerate almost any kind of news except the news that we are imminently in the last moments of the last days.

    Malachi 2:2
    “If you do not listen, and if you do not take it to heart to honor My name,” says the LORD of Hosts, “I will send a curse among you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have already begun to curse them, because you are not taking it to heart.

    If, however, you do not obey the LORD your God by carefully following all His commandments and statutes I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: 16You will be cursed in the city and cursed in the country.

    Isaiah 24:6
    Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate:

  2. Thank you Gordon,
    It is prudent to prepare, I heard in my thoughts early one morning about 2 months ago before this was a real issue in the West ‘prepare yourself,’ I also saw Jesus in a dream walking towards me and I thought it’s Jesus ‘He is coming’, then He stood in front of me and I said is it time .
    We must be prepared to live or die or be taken in the rapture and the best way to be prepared is to be fully surrendered to His will. Also practical preps are needed so if called to shelter at home trips to the store can be minimized, it is not a waste because even if we are taken the supplies will be for the people left behind in the trib.

    God bless you brother!

  3. Why is it that I am listening for the voice of the Church crying out for God’s mercy and forgiveness. For healing and help in this horrible time of need. Are we so consumed with this world that we cannot soon expect the next one. All I see on church websites it that services are cancelled and the preaching will take place online so tune in and be sure to send in your tithes and offerings regardless of what happens. God have mercy on our miserable souls if we name the Name of Christ and yet forgo the burning desire to see Him return and establish His kingdom over this earth. In case we have forgotten, heaven awaits the believing Church, this world is perishing fast, faster than we want to believe.
    Next most likely to happen is social breakdown and anarchy here in the US.
    We are not a patient people and with 40 million students out of school how long will their health and wellbeing hold up without structure. Many thousands of low level prisoners are currently being let out of jails and prisons in New York, Ohio, Fla., and California. Here’s the catch, they are being discharged into society without being tested for the C-virus. O happy day!!! I’m not expecting this flue to let go of its grip on our Country anytime soon.
    I’m trying to be optimistic and believe the best about humanity, our President and the Government. But its getting mighty hard. I’m 72 years and I’ve been a close observer of our world for 50 years believing all the while that there would be a time come that was beyond our fixing. I choose to believe the book of Revelation over what the fake news says and while there are 195 nations currently in the world, the book of Revelation only mentions very few, only 10-15 in the tribulation period. Question; what’s happened to the other 180 or so. Could it be a pandemic ravaged the earth and ended them, Just asking!

    Gordon has a great site here and I wish more people were exposed to It, I don’t know about everyone else but I feel very connected to God in these days. Trials and tribulations make me sense His closeness more than ever. God becomes bigger than everything else in times of uncertainty. My wife and I were in a huge grocery store yesterday and looking at all the empty shelves made me realize who ultimately sustains us, it’s not the grocery stores, It’s Almighty God.

    Blessings and healings to you Gordon,
    Thanks for the opportunity to share,
    Ethin

  4. Thanks for your comment Myrtle Esther (Christine)!

    I truly believe that we are being warned to prepare, the world for something much worse, and the saints for the return of our Savior. Our time is so very short sister, we can truly see it with our own eyes all around us.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  5. Thanks for your comment Ethin!

    I wrote a longer response earlier from home, however for some reason I have not been able to post it, nor am I able to post any blogs. I think the internet (satellite) is so busy because of the Coronavirus I am not able to get through. I had to drive to a coffeeshop in order to use their WIFI.

    I am in agreement with what you are saying. These trials and tribulations are signs from God, and they are happening so that our faith is increased, and of course for unbelievers to see that God is in fact real. I hope and pray that many people come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and accept Him as their Lord and Savior! Amen.

    God bless brother! Maranatha! Gordon
