Prayers for Soon Coming Calamities in America (12/5/2017)

Preppers – at least, smart preppers – aren’t preparing for a zombie apocalypse. They’re preparing for life with physical insurance. Take it from me, you don’t appreciate how much you depend on full grocery stores and available utilities until they’re not there.

If the power goes out due to a bad storm, don’t think “God will provide” you with food, water and a heated shelter. It won’t be God; it will be your neighbors or the government – neither of which holds deistic status.

I dare anyone who has lived through a natural disaster to explain to me why they’re glad they had no food, water, or heat for an extended period of time. Come on, let’s hear it.

People, get off your lazy duffs. God provides eternal salvation, but He doesn’t magically fill your empty cupboards each night or keep your house warm during a power outage. That’s up to you. Now get busy. (Why Do People Scoff At Preppers by Patrice Lewis, a weekly columnist at WND and a writer with a great blog, which can be read here.)

I feel the Bible is balanced on the subject of preparing ourselves for future calamities. On the one hand, it tells us to store up what we can and on the other hand, it tells us to trust in the Lord. So, let’s be wise and do both.

My prayer today:

Lord, help us to get off our lazy duffs and do what we can now to prepare us for future calamities in America.

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?

Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for American believers’ eyes to be opened to future calamities.

Prayers for Soon Coming Calamities in America (11/14/2014)

If you enter the word “preppers” on Google, there will be 8,220,000 results. The definition of a prepper is a person who believes a catastrophic disaster or emergency is likely to occur in the future and makes active preparations for it now, typically by stockpiling food, ammunition, and other supplies.

I have written a book on the subject: Preparation + Planning = Survival, on the subject. It’s written from a prophetic Christian viewpoint.

My biggest problem with most preppers is that they are only looking out for themselves and their families. You know, store up food, water, and guns — shoot anyone who tries to steal your food and water.

Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, (Philippians 2:4)

I believe in preparing ahead of time for calamities, but in doing so, we must also provide for our neighbors.

How can we do that?

If God could give Joseph a plan to save Egypt from seven years of famine, He can do the same for us now.

My prayer today:

Lord, raise up modern Josephs with Your anointing and Your plans to provide for neighborhoods and cities in the coming years of famine due to calamities and whatever.

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
