The 3 Ways To Prepare For The Last Days

 

1.) The 7 Steps of readiness noahs-ark1

1. Walk with a repentant heart daily! Be in right relationship with Jesus, seeking Him with ALL your heart. It is not time to be lukewarm.

2. Be transformed minute by minute to align every thought with the Word of God. Not just an intellectual agreement or belief but a knee jerk belief that is reflected though actions. This is the action of repentance. You are the light of His presence. It is time to burn brightly and reflect His glory.

3. Move all intellectual agreements into your speech patterns, life and relationship skills. Don’t just believe the Word, live the Word. Operate in behaviors that glorify God!

4. Occupy until He comes! This is an action of building and serving the kingdom above all else. Be a daily witness for Christ, fulfill your callings and purposes right where God has you.

5. Know the season that we are in. Study prophecy because we are living in the midst of it being fulfilled. Identify how it is unfolding in your world. Don’t hide your head in the sand and do life as usual; be awake and alert and heed the voice of the Lord. Your provision and protection is IN Him.

6. Be the voice of the watchman. Fear not man, or enemies. Don’t be a people pleaser. Speak, warn, encourage, and lead others today through the voice and Spirit of God. As the dark gets darker the light must get brighter. You are a beacon for His light to shine.

7. Physically prepare. Proverbs 27:12 says that, “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.” When God warned Joseph he stored up in the time of plenty to be prepared for the famine. Noah heeded God’s voice and prepared an ark before he ever saw rain. In fact it had never rained before. He filled the ark with animals and the provision. Lot heeded the voice of the Lord and was saved from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

 

2.) Preparedness

Preparedness in the last days can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. First and foremost is for you to answer the question: are you in right relationship with God, walking in obedience, not perfect but daily allowing God to transform you into His image, are you spiritually alert and discerning the signs of the times?

“For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” Romans 8:6).

We all need to have a steadfast mind that is spiritually minded. We do this by taking every thought captive and tearing down every stronghold. Thinking in alignment to the Word of God means keeping His Truth, the Bible, in front of every thought and dictating every action.

You are called to wear a breastplate of righteousness which is doing right behaviors in all situations and challenges that you encounter in an ungodly society. The Word is a plumb line to discern and measure Truth in every situation. As you walk in this manner you are a light that burns brightly giving glory to the Lord.

You cannot have your head in the sand and go on with life as usual as the Holy Spirit is raising His voice to a nation who has departed from Him and a world where biblical prophecy is unfolding before your eyes.

You have been born for a time such as this. Know His Word; do not just receive a portion of the Word but all of it. Too many Christians read the Word but don’t study and avoid Bible prophecy. How can you recognize prophecy unfolding in front of you if you do not study Bible prophecy?

You have a holy purpose, find it and fulfill it. God gave us pictures of the future and said to the Daniel “roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end.” God is now unrolling it. Discern the times that you are living in. The Lord has been warning America, and we as Christians need to arise, uncompromising. Recognize the signs of the season that we’re in, look at the world’s events and match them to biblical prophecy. We must respond and be prepared personally, corporately as a church of believers, and as a nation.

Is not the time for the church to be asleep, arise, wake up and reflect the presence of God for His glory. Heed God’s warnings which are to prepare you to care for yourself, your family, and your community. Study His Word and seek Him because God is your provision and protection and it comes through heeding and responding to His voice.

“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15).

3.) Regaining the Skills of our forefathers

“The wise store up choice food and olive oil,
but fools gulp theirs down” (Proverbs 21:20).

When you hear the word prepper do you automatically think crazy, conspiracy theory, or radical? Well if you do maybe you might consider changing your perspective in light of the times that we find ourselves living in and the biblical prophecies that we see unfolding.

God warned Noah of an impending flood and to prepare for the judgment that was coming. In Genesis 6:21 God told Noah, “You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.” Why did God do this? Because He takes care of His own. I guess this makes Noah a prepper.

We are living in exciting times and look forward to the return of Christ. Balanced preppers do not prep out of fear but out of wisdom. Man has been on the earth for approximately 6,000 years. From Adam to Christ is about 4,000 years, and from Christ to the present is approximately 2,000 years.

Consider the following. Our ancestors did not have electricity, refrigeration, modern conveniences, or technology. It wasn’t until the 1800’s that the industrial revolution began and mans knowledge and inventions have hugely increased to date as is prophesied before the coming of the Lord in Daniel 12:4.

It was in 1834 that the first working vapor-compression refrigeration system was built. The first commercial ice-making machine was invented in 1854. Home electricity began in 1882, in 1913 refrigerators for home use were invented, and in 1923 Frigidaire introduced the first self-contained unit.

Hence, mankind is 6,000 yrs old and our modern industry only began 215 years ago, electricity 133 years ago, and refrigeration 102 years ago. Doesn’t that make you think about history and how mankind lived and the knowledge that we in modern society have lost?

Why as a Bible teacher and Christian counselor am I giving you a history lesson you ask? Because as believers we trust in God as our provider, yet I think more of us depend on the life style of well stocked stores and modern conveniences. Our ancestors trusted God for the rain and the sun to bring forth a harvest.

Our forefathers knew how to care for themselves, their family and the community to work together as a whole for their sustainability. Do we? They knew how to grow and store food and provide for all their needs through seasons, storms and turmoil without a grocery store or the corner Wal-Mart. Mankind did all this for 5,785 years.

In the last 215 years we have become totally dependent on the government and what they provide in services, the products and conveniences, and on the technology we trust.

It is wisdom to get back to some basics and learn the skills to care for yourself and your family if the economy collapses. Nations are in the news with economic troubles daily. History has proven that governments fall and rise and there are shifts of power from the west to the east and back.

All we have to do is simply read the newspaper to know that global depression is eminent. The Bible teachers are warning, the economists are also warning, and the fruit of removing God from our country will catch up with us eventually. We are living in a prophetic time period and need to wake up and use wisdom.

“Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and become wise! Though they have no prince or governor or ruler to make them work, they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter. But you, lazybones, how long will you sleep? When will you wake up? A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest— then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber”( Proverbs 6:6 –11).

God warns His people. He protects and provides for His children. “Awake O sleeper” (Ephesians 5:14), “fear not” (Isaiah 41:10), “today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your heart (Hebrew 3:7), seek a Word in due season (Proverbs 25:11), “study to show thyself approved” (2 Timothy 2:15).
