Preparing Our Households For The Tribulation

Preparing Our Households For The Tribulation

Do we need to prepare for the Tribulation? Yes, absolutely, Noah prepared his family and the ark for his tribulation as an example for us, so we should prepare for our Tribulation (1 Corinthians 10:11). Our Father has told us we will not be able to buy or sell during the days of Antichrist (our Tribulation) which is to say during the days Satan will reign as king on the earth claiming to be Jesus Christ.

Understanding that fact and knowing we will not be able to buy food or clothing during the Tribulation we should prepare to ensure we have the items needed to sustain ourselves for the days ahead. 

Before we start our Bible study, let us ask our Father for wisdom and understanding of His Word, in Jesus Name amen.

Turn your Bible with me to,

Proverbs 6:6-8
6 “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.”

7 “Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,”

8 “Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.”

What does the ant do?

She prepares her meat, she prepares her household for the times when there will be no food.

Proverbs 6:9
9 “How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?”

Do not wait for a special sign to prepare. The signs are all around us if we have eyes to see and ears to hear. Do not wait for someone to prepare for you. With few exceptions such as the severely handicapped we are all capable of preparing in some fashion if we put our minds to it.

Proverbs 6:10-11
10 “Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:”

11 “So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.”

If you do not prepare, do not be surprised if you find yourself without. These are the Words of your Father in Heaven. He has told us all to prepare for tough times, to observe even the tiny ant who is capable of these things.

How much more capable are we?

Consider these words.

As the ant, we should ensure we have enough food, water and the items that are needed to sustain our households through difficult times and most importantly, to sustain us through the Tribulation. If we think about it there are many reasons to prepare aside from the end times. There are natural disasters to consider. Think about Hurricane Katrina and the havoc it caused in New Orleans and the surrounding areas. Then we have snow storms and high winds which knock out power for weeks in some parts of our country. If you are not prepared for these events how will you sustain your family through them?

When these situations arise that is when we see riots in the streets like during Hurricane Katrina. Many people do not realize it, but Martial Law was declared and citizens who stayed at home with arms to protect their families had their firearms confiscated by the government. That is a fact. This event left these people defenseless against a town of lawlessness. This just goes to show us why and how we should be prepared to defend our homes. During Katrina even some law enforcement took part in the theft and we heard the numerous reports of murders and rapes taking place during this time not to mention how difficult it was for many to acquire a warm meal and a roof over their head.

We have also heard reports about chemical spills in the rivers that supply us with drinking water. The taps were shut off and people had to fend for themselves. How would you and your family fair in such conditions?

Instead of being a victim of such an event plan for these types of disaster scenarios. Consider re-used milk jugs in the freezer filled with water. These will help keep the food cool in a power outage and also double as water storage if needed. However, do not re-use milk jugs if you do not intent to freeze them as they tend to leak over time. A better option is to re-use juice containers.  For large storage quantities consider rain barrels. What if you have access to water, but it is contaminated? Consider a Berkey (one brand of many) water purifier that is used in foreign countries to purify contaminated water and requires no electricity. How about personal hygiene? Consider sanitary wipes to assist with cleaning.

We should be prepared not just for a bad storm, but prepared for the end times, the coming Tribulation. This should be on your priority list. Unlike a storm, the flood of Satan, our Tribulation will last far longer than a week, (see: As In The Days Of Noah And The End Times Flood Of Lies).

Keep in mind canned goods should be a staple and those “Best By Dates” are not accurate as some studies point out (ensure you are rotating your stock), meaning those canned items last far longer than the dates would indicate. Dried rice and beans are cheap and easy to store, vacuum seal them to ensure the bugs do not enjoy your labors. Dried fruits and meats are a great option. You can even freeze dried meats and thaw when needed extending their shelf life. Try and give yourself a variety of foods, because when you need them you will quickly get tired of rice and beans. The Tribulation is going to be hard enough on us and our families, so think ahead and try to make a difficult situation easier to manage. Do not forget about other essentials like toiletries and medications.

Consider alternate ways of cooking.

How about that old camp stove in your shed, do you have propane for it?

A charcoal grill, do you have charcoal and lighter fluid?

Both of these items can be used to cook food both on the grill and in a pan over the flame. Never forget about wood heating as well. While cooking food remember a charcoal grill in the city will attract attention as will the smell of food being cooked for hours with heavy seasonings. Save the seasonings for the end and make cooking a quick task, not a drawn out process.

Some extra gasoline should be on hand in case you need to travel short distances. If you have the resources a generator is a good option depending on your location. However, if you live in the city this will only draw attention to yourself and should be avoided. Think about everything that you need to get through the day. Consider turning off the power to your home for a day to simulate what we will most likely face during the Tribulation. This can be a fun thing to do, break out the candles and see how you manage. Speaking of, do not forget candles, matches and oil lamps (extra wicks). Take note, in the wrong circumstances an illuminated window to someone on the outside might draw unwanted attention to yourself.

With that said, consider your surroundings.

Are your neighbors friendly?

Do they know the Lord?

Do they understand the idea of being prepared for emergencies?

If they show no sign or interest it might be better to not say anything further as this will only draw attention to yourself. Our Father told us this would be the worst time the earth has ever witnessed and you better get set for it.

Now some people will say, preparing shows a lack of faith.

It is true, God did provide for the Israelites for 40 years raining manna and keeping their shoes and clothing from wearing out (Deuteronomy 8:3-4). But we should remember the Israelites were traveling, they did not have the opportunity to plant seeds and raise cattle. However, we are planted, we are not wandering in the desert and we should prepare in order to support ourselves in the future to the extent that we are able. We also have the woman in Revelation 12 who is symbolic of the Israelite tribes who are nourished for a time during the Tribulation, that time being the last half of the Tribulation when Satan reigns absolute. Yet, I would say preparing shows your Father you have Faith in His Word and you are trying your best to take care of yourself and not rely exclusively on Him. The scriptures state if you do not work you do not eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10). This goes for the Tribulation as well, if you are not going to work at preparing then you have nothing to complain about when you are desperate for sustenance during the Tribulation. In my opinion, if you have the means and are not preparing you are tempting God and that will not fly with our Father. God may very well provide miracles (five loaves two fish as an example) for us during the Tribulation of Satan. However, if we have the means we should prepare and not assume God will step in and do the work for us. God has always asked us to do work before He will provide and this is no different. The Tribulation will literally separate the men from the boys so to speak.

Without going into too much detail it is very probable that we will have an economic collapse on a global scale and probably Martial Law in our country before the Tribulation. Think about the scope of that for a moment and consider approximately 50% of this nation is on public assistance. Imagine if public assistance checks did not go out and the ensuing chaos that would transpire. This scenario would not last long as the globalists would lose control at that point so any great collapse will be very short in my opinion. The globalists have been working for thousands of years to gain absolute control of the world and they do not want to lose it right at the end. Considering the outlined scenario it would be extremely difficult for people to acquire the things they need.

With that said, do you or will you have enough to share with neighbors?

This is also a serious thought. The generosity of us all wants to give, but this can also get you killed. Disasters and times of crisis tend to bring out the worst in people.

If you share a little and they come back will you have more to give?

What about their family and friends will you have enough to provide for them as well?

Seriously think about these things and the possible scenarios so you are not caught off guard.

Now let us move into the time of the Tribulation. These people who were once suffering will be taken care of by Satan and his Beast Government, (see: Mark Of The Beast).

Why do I say that?

Most people reject our Father today and have no clue what is coming, but they will believe Satan is Jesus Christ and worship him, so Satan will provide for them. On the other hand you will not worship Satan so he will not provide for you or your family. Remember, this will not end for the Elect when Satan gets here, it will only get worse. The Elect have to hold out until the very end when the true Christ returns so prepare now. It is a fact we will not be able to buy or sell, so if you do not prepare now Satan will capitalize on any weakness you have. If you have not prepared, you will have nothing during the Tribulation. In this situation you risk placing yourself in a position which would require you to bow to Satan and accept his One World Beast Government and him as God in order to purchase goods, that is something you do not want to do. There is no reason you cannot start preparing today. Add a little extra to your cart when you go shopping today and in a few months it will add up quickly. Consider having some precious metals on hand to use for trade during the Tribulation, this too is a possible scenario. Please note, if someone comes knocking on your door during the Tribulation in need and they are not worshiping Satan you are absolutely obligated to take that person in or assist them. They are one of your Christian brothers, help them stand against Satan as you will be doing. Be wise though to any possible setups. There could be attempts by some to root out those who refuse to bow before Satan disguising themselves as those in need…

On top of the physical preparation, there is the spiritual aspect to consider.

How solid are you in God’s Word?

Do you trust Him?

Do you have faith in His Word?

Have you considered the possible scenarios in your mind?

Have you considered the events that will transpire during the Tribulation?

Have you considered what your daily life will be like?

Have you considered how you are going to be hated by the world because you reject Satan who is the perceived Christ by the world?

Have you considered the gravity of it all, the stress, the fact the whole world will want you dead just like they wanted Christ dead in His time. This will not be easy to stand up against. Many people cannot stand up to a crowd much less a crowd of 7 billion souls. We should physically, mentally and spiritually prepare to the best of our abilities, but this is truly not an event we can stand up to on our own. All the preparing in the world will be completely empty if we do not have Faith in our Father.

Remember, God will be there to see us through the Tribulation if we believe and trust Him. On the other hand the lack of God in other people’s lives will be the reason they do not stand against Satan, instead it will be the reason they fail their Heavenly Father. Ultimately, they did not possess enough oil in their lamps, (see: The Oil Of The Ten Virgins).

I would like to point out the Tribulation is not just about understanding Satan is the antichrist, but about understanding the pressure that will be exerted on us for not worshiping him. Those pressures will be applied not just by the world itself, but by Satan and his fallen angels and I believe the vials of Revelation document some of this. As Ephesians 6:10-17 document we need to, “put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Did God’s Word say some of the armor or part of the armor? No, His Word said the whole armor, all of it and we need to truly comprehend this and try to understand what we are going to be dealing with.

During the Tribulation if you are out in the streets, “agree” which means “to be well minded “with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison“, (Matthew 5:25, see: Do We Agree With Our Enemy During The Tribulation?). Do not allow yourself to be delivered into the hands of your enemy before your time, that is if you are meant to be delivered up to begin with, some, but not all of the Elect will be delivered up. We should not be anxious for this, Christ told us himself be anxious for nothing (Philippians 4:6). Just settle down and stay in the Word and let God’s Will come to pass. While not all of us will be delivered up, many of us will play a part in God’s plan in one fashion or another. Some of us may help keep our family on the narrow path that leads to God while others may lead a neighborhood to our Father. No matter how big or small we are all doing our part just like the parable of the talent (Matthew 25:14-30).

While what we have discussed in this article may sound tough, we can, and we will make it through the Tribulation. Why? Because you have taken the time to prepare physically, mentally and spiritually. Most importantly because we have our Father on our side who is able to deliver us from our enemies, (see: The Saints And Their Role In The Tribulation). We have our Father on our side who leads us to the green pastures and who guides us to the still waters (Psalm 23:2-3). We will overcome the Tribulation of Satan because we will not shake, we will not waiver, and we will not bow at the appearance or influence of Satan. We will stand our ground, we will stand firmly on our Rock, Jesus Christ.

In Jesus Name Amen.

Ezekiel 38:7 
7 “Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.”

  1. I am surprised that foraging isn’t talked about…if you live anywhere near forests, fields etc. There will be an abundance of free natural food all around you…I have several books on foraging and a book too put out by the Dept. of the Army Field Manual FM 21-76…that shows you how to survive out in the wild from building small shelters..foods you can eat in the wild…hunting setting traps how to dress a large bird or animals so you can eat them…first aid is in the book too…I myself make and take colloidal silver…you can make it with a nine volt battery in an emergency but I am making a lot of it to have on hand…it will fight off any single cell plague that is going around and you can purify water with it too…you wont get food poisoning because it fights that too…all we can do is all we can do…what if a tornado earthquake or hurricane hits our home? What if we are robbed by others? Answer God our Father is in control He has a job for us to do and I believe no matter what happens just like the fallen angles that will be here the good angels have to be here too to even the playing field out for us. I have printed studies too and tapes with a small cassette player so I can listen to Bible studies ….hope this helps someone.

    • I caution everyone about colloidal silver. There is a right way and a wrong way to make it. If you make it wrong or take to much you will end up permanently with blue skin. Debbie mentioned a 9v battery, that is fine, but to much of a charge will create to large of a particle and your skill will turn blue and it will never go away. No what you are doing or don’t do it at all. It is easy to learn, take the time to learn how.

  2. Thanks for sharing! So what if you have no place to store 5 mths worth of food and water?

  3. How can we store up food? Even if one could find the space and money to store 7 years worth of food and water, what about your house? If you stop the payments the bank will take it will they not? Making payments on your house is part of the system. What about luke 12:24-26? I struggle greatly with this and want to do exactly what your saying hoards tons of stuff but in reality unless you have land payed off with a house payed off your screwed. Even at that pay property taxes on it would still be the beast system wouldn’t it?

    • David thank you for the comment. The Tribulation of Satan has been shortened down to a five month period. Christ told us the Tribulation was shortened in Matthew 24:22. In Revelation 9 we see it was reduced to five months. I just discussed this subject with another reader earlier today, good timing. You can read the response here: https://worldeventsandthebible.com/bible-study/mark-of-the-beast#comment-2775666053

      It is true God can provide, but does that mean we should not act on our own if we have the means? I think we should do everything we can and not solely rely on God. You read the study, you read the verses about the ant.

      If you do not worship Satan you will not be allowed to partake in the Beast System, it is that plain and simple. You will have no choice, it is not an option where you may make a mistake. God does not work that way, His way is right, true and absolute.

      If you can pay off your house do so. God can provide and make ways that we cannot comprehend, remember the crossing of the sea in Moses time. He can accomplish anything. Just do your part and in the end you will know that you have done your best. You can sleep with that and your Father will be proud David.

      • Thank you very much for writing me back. I have so few people I can talk to about this, may God bless you for what your doing here. I do disagree though about the tribulation being shortened, I still believe it’s 7 years long but to the elect only with it be shortened by 5 months. I do see where your coming from thought if you don’t go to work today God isn’t going to feed you. It’s just difficult and seems it’s never ending as what you could prepare for. What’s your thoughts however if you go to federal prison and stand trial for 10 days (church of Smyrna) should we accept the food they bring? Or starve ourselves for those 10 days? Any insight on Revelation 12:14, I would assume the woman is Israel what’s your thoughts on it including anyone of Chirst? Thank you again, so few I can talk about this with.

      • Thank you David we thank our Father for it. Concerning the five months, we know when Satan steps foot on earth he will unleash a flood of lies. What other flood do we know about in the Word? Noah’s flood. How long did the water prevail on the earth? 150 days which is equal to five months. To understand more about the flood of lies I would recommend our study titled, “As In The Days Of Noah And The End Times Flood Of Lies“.

        With respect to preparation. One could go to extreme lengths in preparation if they so desired. Is it necessary? No. We really do not need a whole lot to survive. Now, the more you have food, water and toiletry wise will help make your time that much easier, the less you have the more difficult. Keep that in mind, but do not over think it.

        With respect to your ten day example. I can tell you if I was locked up and they offered me some chicken wings, I am going to eat those chicken wings and ask for some hot sauce to boot. Remember, Satan is coming in peaceably and prosperously (Daniel 11:21). He wants to look like a good guy and he will play that role. If the cell guards wanted me to worship Satan or pledge allegiance to Satan in order to eat those wings I would certainly pass on that meal.

        Welcome to the site David, you will find plenty of us to talk to about these types of issues.

  4. I am so grateful for your article and I plan to share it. We are newer Christians and have only in the last week learned of the post-trib rapture. I have a question though….. Do you believe it is possible for any of us Christians to make it all the way through the 7 years to the rapture?

    • Thank you for the comment Mistie and it is great to hear you have accepted Christ.

      I would caution you against a belief in the rapture doctrine however. It is a very un-Biblical teaching and leading many right into the arms of Satan unfortunately. We have a Bible study on this subject titled, “The False Hope of the Rapture“. It is also available in video and audio formats. In case you are not aware Christ shortened the time of the Tribulation in Matthew 24:22.

      The best advice I can give any Christian especially a new one is to always check out what you are told in the Word of God. Never, ever listen to what someone says without checking it out for yourself.

  5. I so appreciate and am thankful for this article and the many many comments/advise about the tribulation. I would like to add the following;

    As Americans we are so used to abundance in food and every comfort imaginable. If u look at the majority of countries worldwide, they don’t have this abundance. Many people around the world shop daily for their meals. Thus, what does this mean? Will they all be subject to antichrist??

    We have all been raised with the idea of “more than enough”. I know this firsthand as working with wildlife and being inundated with calls. The majority of first questions is ” what can I feed them to feel better”. The answer is nothing. They not like us – don’t need to eat to feel better

    I’m making this point as I think as we prepare we don’t need to plan for 3 square meals a day, just a sustainable amount. Look around, I’m sure a lot of us could stand a 6 month period of eating less.

    I also suggest searching and researching the web for natural herb and supplements for those that are concerned about prescription meds and not having what they need . Now is the time to prepare!

    Besides all the great ideas and advise given, I am a big fan of hydrogen peroxide It’s cheap and u can use it for a multitude of purposes

  6. I suggested this topic to Brandon as, through my communications with those of like mind, I found that some were lacking or just plain not in a position to prepare. I’m glad that so many have benefited with Brandon’s advice. And I want to emphasize to all of you that if your Father sees that you are doing what you are able to do, He will see you through this time ahead. I say that will full faith and confidence in our Father. I just wanted to add a couple of things…If you’re looking for items that are hard to find, try lehmans.com…These folks are Amish and have lived off grid for hundreds of years. They have many items that could help out. Also, I would suggest everyone have a shortwave radio. You can buy these relatively inexpensively. None of us can possibly predict how everything will play out…We may have internet access, we may not. We may have electricity, we may not for a time. You can buy a battery powered shortwave radio and keep up with the news of the day for not a lot of money. Our Father will provide if he sees us having the faith to believe that His Word is true. All of you are in my prayers daily. May YHVH bless you all!

  7. This sounds good and different from what the church has been taught, my question is that I need strong pain killers which I can only get by by doctor every two months so there is no way able to prep for these

    • disqus_wndk3uXSYP

      February 23, 2016 at 9:22 AM

      Sharryn I am in the same boat sort of. I’ve lived with severe chronic pain for over 20 years that has been untouchable by any pain pills except one and now it has quit working. God is good we have to look to HIM.

  8. Marianne Mazzenga

    May 28, 2015 at 4:09 AM

    Can you tell me your thoughts on the RDIF microchip.

    • Marianne, thank you for the comment. RFID is used all over the place these days, there is nothing to fear. It is simply more technology. Some people get excited and think it is the Mark Of The Beast which it is not. Think about it for a moment, most of the world now runs around with a so called “smart phone” which already has tracking etc built into it and if we are honest with ourselves so do the old phones as well.

      The truth of the matter is the Mark Of The Beast is a spiritual mark, no microchip would ever fool any Christian and Satan is far more deceptive than that. Take the time to read our study on this topic titled, “Mark Of The Beast“. This will explain exactly what the mark is and how it all will take place.

  9. It seems as things are lining up. The British, the City of London Financial, have split from the U.S. who own the Federal Reserve, the IMF, and the World Bank. Starting in March 20, 2015, the British Bullion Banks will cede control of the daily gold price fix to regulators paving the way for control of the gold markets by the BRICS. This means that London, Singapore, and Hong Kong financial markets are moving to the new financial system. This leaves 2 of the worlds major financial markets Tokyo, and New York under Khazarian control (the petro- dollar reign is coming to an end) …Also, a major military exercise in seven states, Utah, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Arizona, California, and Nevada planned in 2 months, possibly the US getting ready for a martial law scenario,…STAND BOLDY, STAND FIRM FOR OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST, make preparations, as you mention Brandon, things are getting crazier by the day. Also, theres reports of people getting visions, and dreams about STAR PEOPLE that are coming soon, paving the way for the anti-Christ, the abomination of desolation, Also the pope just recently made an announcement stating his time as pope will be short….JESUS CHRIST OUR ROCK, AND OUR FORTESS, ELECT, prepare for the battle ahead!!!!!!

    • I would have to disagree about those nations being left out. The children of Satan already own the major powers of the world. Essentially, the children of Satan are the powers of this world you can find that in Ephesians 6. Those nations they do not own are in conflict. Think Syria and Iran.

      Make no mistake though all of the current world currencies must be broken before they can bring about their new world order government and economic system. We are getting there, things are moving very fast. Those labor pains, we all know how they work.

      As for star people, I have no idea what you are referring too. People claim all kinds of things, but there are no such thing as star people. There is Satan and his fallen angels and they will be joining us soon enough.

  10. Thanks Brandon. I really enjoyed your study and have now read it over several times. Very, very wise subject to read, understand, and “do”. Being prepared is always good advice; especially in being spiritually prepared for Satan’s power plays he will perform against God’s elect. I’m betting on that enormous pressures will be placed on all who oppose him and his beast government system. God sent Cain(Satan’s child) out of his home and made him a fugitive and a vagabond upon the earth. Reread Gen.4:10-14. I would not put it past Satan to treat God’s children in this same fashion. Our bank accounts will be frozen, and maybe even our houses taken away from our ownership. And those who rent their living quarters, forget about it! Satan will use every means at his disposal, physical and spiritual, to force God’s elect to “surrender” to his will. So you might think about hiding away some of your stockpiled supplies someplace hidden. However, don’t worry, for it is written in Ephesians 6:10, which is just before we put on our gospel armour; Paul writes, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” If we have total faith in God and His ability to provide; He will never leave us or forsake us. We are in Him and He is in us. Let us, therefore; abide together not in fear as some do, but in the peace of mind that is given to us by our comforter.
    Remember, God will provide and help guide us just as he has done for us RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!
    And finally, a special thanks to you Brandon, may God continue using you as He sees fit. God bless to all.

    • Thank you for your words of encouragement DFG. They really lifted me up today. God bless.

      • Yes, thanks Susan; but remember,it is through God’s holy spirit and His sending of the comforter that we all are all lifted up by His word. Praise YHVH! And God bless to too.

  11. As we all plan for the tribulation and a one world governmental monetary system – think about our country the majority of people that depend on the government to suppy them with food, clothing, housing, medications.. How easily will these people be deceived or “buy” in to a new world order?

  12. I am thankful to have been led to your website through Steve Quayle’s website. Not very many ministries address the Elect and our role in the end times. Again thank you for opening the eyes and ears of all of God’s children who really need to hear this message from God’s Word.

  13. Thank you so much for this study of preparation for the tribulation. You are spot on. The spirit in me resonates with every thing you wrote. God bless you! Susan

  14. This study is so encouraging. Thank you!

  15. It makes me so sad that so many American Christians have fallen for the false doctrine of the pre-trib rapture. They will not be preparing as they should. Many will lose faith, etc when it does happen. As it has been stated, the signs are all around us.
    Thanks for a great article. I will share with many!

    • It is sad, it can be partly be blamed on the church for not teaching Gods word properly to Christians, but God did give us the bible to study, so we will not have anyone to blame but ourselves. Everyone, please encourage your family and friends to study the bible for themselves to allow God to impart the knowledge HE wants you to know.
      Do NOT be the one taken ist. The rapture theory is satans last trick to fool humans into losing their souls to satan.

  16. Matthew 6:25-34King James Version (KJV)

    25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
    26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
    27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
    28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
    29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
    30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
    31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
    32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
    33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    • Mel, I am not sure how you missed the entire point of the study. I guarantee you if you stop going to work you will have no food or roof over your head. Did you miss what God said about the ants? God takes care of them too. But the ants are still required to go out into the world and provide for themselves. Learn from the ant Mel as our Father stated.

  17. If one does the ENTIRE will of God for us, including fleeing from man made false religion, and draws to Jehovah, He will draw close to you. Stop being part of the world, for if one loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. In doing these things, and becoming one of God’s Earthly organization, one can be protected during the tribulation and final battle. Otherwise, you’re toast.

  18. Great article! But I think people need to really understand the fall of new Babylon will be first, most people will not make it thru that, before antichrist gets here. Obviously it’s great to prepare for tribulation but first up, first order of business is to prepare for the fall of Babylon, which the Bible sent us an angel to warn us to actually get out of Babylon so we don’t fall along with it! I believe God needs his army for tribulation and doesn’t want us to perish with the new Babylon but I don’t see a mad rush of Christians out the door. Definitely more people leaving than in previous years, I saw a graph showing the numbers have quadrupled than in previous yrs. And a lot of pastors and their families leaving, but not the every day Christian. I guess they’re still confused on who the new Babylon is. I was wondering if you had written or would write an article on that subject that I could pass on. Thanks!

    • Stacy, that Babylon system is Satan’s One World Beast Government. It will exist when Satan steps foot on earth claiming to be Jesus Christ. Remember, the Tribulation has been shortened by Christ. Your documentation is in Matthew 24:22. I believe scripture teaches us it was shortened down to a five month period. We have documented that in several of our studies as well.

      • Thanks for your insight! All the clues given to us could match that as well except when the angel says come out of her my people, or you will perish with the new Babylon. This can’t be the beast govt cause once you take the mark you can’t come out of it. If you accept the beast & his mark & system your finished. So this warning to the inhabitants of new Babylon, can’t be to the ones who are in the beast system. And bible says its a city. It also says when she falls, all other nations will mourn cause they can’t buy or sell w her anymore. The beast system will reign supreme until Christ comes back. Satans system won’t fall until the end, so nations wouldn’t have time to mourn her. Where do those clues given to us in Rev 18:4 & Rev 9-12 come in?
        I pray we all have discernment & lift each other up during these times. Thank you!

      • Stacy, I see you are trying, but you are missing some of the pieces. A literal angel is not going to call out. Just as there is not going to be a literal beast with a bunch of heads and horns. It is symbology. I think you need to read our study about the Mark Of The Beast to understand what it truly is. https://worldeventsandthebible.com/bible-study/mark-of-the-beast

        When Satan’s system falls everyone mourns because that is it. They will realize they were deceived by Satan as they witness the appearance of the True Christ. Read the study I linked it will help you.

      • Ok great, I will check it out. Thanks!

  19. Excellent outline, Brandon! I feel as if there are folks out there who needed to hear these words, I feel that very strongly. You did an excellent job, gave me some things to think about. I prepare as best I can with what means I have. I feel that if we each do that, Father will bless that and see us through and provide us with what we need. Exciting times we live in! Some would say frightening times, but our Father is in control. Praise YHVH!

  20. Help those who laughed at us for preparing? I DON”T THINK SO!!!! I have NO intention of giving up what we’ve worked to get for over a four year period. They are just going to have to deal with it on their own. Do NOT think for one minute that your “so called” Christian friends wouldn’t come and take what you have at the point of a gun. I’m prepared to deal with that scenario! They are only nine meals away from acting like the other hordes that will be in the street. It’s almost too late to prepare as things will start to get VERY ugly by October. You’re on your own when it comes to this situation.

    • Boxer, thank you for the comment, but you missed the entire point. If someone refuses to worship Satan they are your Christian brother period. You have no idea why they or how they ended up at your door step. Maybe they did prepare too, but were ran off of their estate. Keep that in mind. I would not set any dates though. I have been hearing people say things were going to get dicey for years. Just stay in the Word and let us watch these events come to pass.

    • “what we’ve worked to get for over a four year period”? That sounds rather selfish for a Christian born-again believer. I give God the credit for putting it upon my heart to prepare, not only for my own house & extended family, but those who will be in need. Sure, I’ve become a laughing stock of my family, but every one of them has told me that they’ll come to me if (when!) it does happen. God will get the credit then & He’ll get the credit now while I’m preparing. Remember, God bringing wrath upon the world by making the seas, lakes & streams turning to blood, the sun turning to darkness & such is to show mankind that life comes from Him. All your prepping with food & water will not save you; how you live is the test.

      • Jerry, thank you for the comment. I wanted to make a note about the born again believer comment. The “born again” stems from John 3:3 which is a mis-translation. Look it up in your Strong’s. It is actually, “born from above”. Meaning to be born of woman into this age of flesh. Unlike the fallen angels who refused to be born of woman and instead came down from Heaven and impregnated woman creating giants. This is what we are talking about in this scripture.

        Note as well, I do not believe the waters will actually turn to blood. What are the waters?

        Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

  21. It is a very difficult thing to think about the question regarding what does God overlook when it comes to the fact that, most everyone living in America has access to sufficient knowledge and wisdom to conclude that, every effort must be made to divorce yourself and come out of Babylon.. this is an interesting problem because there is certainly enough knowledge and reason to come to the conclusion that God absolutely does not approve of giving birth to your children in a state hospital.. giving the state their cord blood.. placing them under the legal authority of the state to inject them with chemicals that are proven to kill them.. etc.. and then, we continue to work under a social security number and let Caesar steal our lawful labor.. which is labouring onto the beast!

    And we compromise and pretend that their blood is on the state’s head, when we can choose to live elsewhere.

    and some pretend God is pleased when we write off our tax deductable check to a 501c(3) church.. when consenting to live in cities were it is illegal to feed the homeless.

    yes Lot was allegedly a righteous man who’s allegedly righteous heart was tormented over the sins of that city.. but i think its pretty clear God saved him because Abraham was tormented over the subject.

    let us be Abrahams and not Lots in this age, and exit Babylon, lest we delay the day of destruction.

    • I see some of the points you are trying to make. However, because we participate in society does not mean we are sinning. I personally do not agree with vaccines either, but does this mean God is angry at a Christian who do? Or even being born in a state hospital? I think that is far outside the bounds of this study. Remember, if we are to bring people into the arms of Christ we need to be in the world. Remember, that Christ sat down and ate with sinners.

  22. You need:
    Food 6 to 12 months worth.
    Water Filter.
    Medical Kit.
    Sleeping Bags for each member of your family.
    Guns and ammo to protect your family.
    This is the bare minimum, if you want a chance of your family surviving.

    • Food-grade bucket (5-7lbs), mylar bag, 2000cc oxygen absorber, beans or rice or whatever, heat seal, close lid and store room temperature. The food can last as long as 20+ years. This is the cheapest way to get the maximum amount of food for your bucks.

  23. As we prepare, we must remember that many will need our help, they will need to be shown charity and the love of Christ. In preparing, we save small liquid creamer bottles, small water bottles, etc. so that when the guacamole hits the fan we can hand out bottles filled with rice. Also, we have been thrift shopping/flea marketing/yard sailing to find things like travel size items, band-aids, unused toiletries, etc and stockpiling those items to make small care packages. Storing items that are good for trading is also wise.

    Our situation in this country will change quite rapidly and the globalists are moving very quickly to please their boss (satan). Some people say, “I’ll wait and see what happens, I’ll just wait for that one big thing to happen and then prepare.”. What people sometimes fail to realize is that “one big thing” will be the LAST thing and then it will be too late.

    Love one another, encourage and make ready. Keep those lamps full of oil and trim your wicks. Midnight is nearing. ; ] See 2 Timothy 1:7 and Psalms 91

  24. Brandon, I not familiar with your belief so just asking … do you follow that Matt. 24 and Rev, 6 are the same events with the seals being the tribulation or do you follow the train of thought that the tribulation ends at the end of Rev.?

  25. This was Very! Good,My Heart Heavy hearing of Training drill’s & what that could mean to those that don’t go along.We Believe In Jesus & pray for him to put a Hedge of Protection around us. Yes Brain we must prepare, I know it is hard when all family members Don’t have their eyes open, You Must think of your families, Baby’s Little ones, & yourself, God Says in His word, “My people perish from lack of Knowledge & the Knowledge of the Word of God”, Please prepare NOW! it could come upon us Today or tomorrow or months, but do NOW! what you won’t be able to do when the crash comes of what ever may come Put med’s away that are needed, remember dippers, wipes & dipper rash Lotion. You must! think!!!! Think out side the box as well as inside you will be in survival Mode, if power goes out, & games for children, Plastic to go on windows.Remember an EMP attack on the Grid would leave NO! power what you have will be what you have to ride it out. & have daily prayer & bible time with family daily. For He is our Rock, the Rock of our Salvation Blessing’s In Jesus

  26. Thank you for this study! I cannot find a church in my area that is not teaching about the rapture almost every Sunday.
    Here are a couple more verses that have convinced me the rapture (especially pre-trib) is a lie:
    Rev 12:9-12 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and
    Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth,
    and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our
    God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore
    rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters
    of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having
    great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

    So, there in vs 11, are the “brethren” overcoming, loving “not their lives unto the death”, right in the midst of everything with the devil being cast down.

    Then there’s Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and
    nations.

    How could the devil/antichrist “make war with the saints” and “overcome” them if they have all been raptured?

    One more: Rev 20:4 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of
    Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast,
    neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads,
    or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand
    years.

    If the rapture happens before the tribulation, where did these come from?

    I have a motto related to the Word of God…”just let it say what it says…don’t add anything to it…don’t take anything from it…just let it say what it says.”

    I would challenge anyone that believe the pre-trib rapture will whisk them away to read the whole book of Revelation in one sitting, asking God to show them what is true and just letting the Word say what it says.

    Here is another challenge:

    Dan 12:1-3 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth
    for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

    Thanks again for this great study!
    Blessings to all! May we all be those that “turn many to righteousness”!

  27. Thank you for this study, it was encouraging yet “eye opening”. I have started but realize I need to continue my stocking up. Thank you for explaining the extreme difficulty that the Elect will be faced with because knowing this ahead of time will help prepare the Elect mentally. If it happened today, I’m not sure I would be prepared mentally, physically or spiritually but I know what I need to work on. I also know our Father is in control and He will protect the Elect just like He did with Daniel in the fiery furnace.
    Also, let’s not forget our pets…..set aside some food for them too?

    • You are very welcome eagleflyfree. I would set aside some food if you can for your pet. If they have no food you will be left with a very uncomfortable situation to deal with.

  28. That was awesome Brandon! Though some of us may already be privy to most of this preparation…How so?….

    Mark 13:23 “But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you ALL things.”

    We just need to stay in His Word! It is certainly good to have a current written reminder by one of God’s faithful servants as well! Thank you for helping us keep the *Watch* and showing brotherly love in helping others prepare for the coming tribulation of Satan. We are quite aware that God/Christ will neither leave nor forsake us. It is written. Blessed reassurance!

    However, He has given us the gift of common sense and grey matter…do our best to prepare, and TRUST God for the rest….is what I get from this message!

    May God continue to lead, guide and direct all those who seek to stay in His Truth!
    Thank you for this great work! Thanks for your dedication and labor of love in His Service ‘B’!
    We really appreciate that!

    May God continue to bless you, your family, and all those who continue to stay in His Truths!

    Happy New Year!

    Ooops! I thumbed myself up in error! Seriously!

    • I thumbed you up again! You’re always so positive anyway EoG.

      • Thank you for your kind sentiments Connie! Just keeping the faith and full Armor on and in place, while we await our *true* King of kings and Lord of lords! We count our blessings for Him opening our eyes and ears to His Truths….no Greater Love!

        May God continue to bless you and all who stay faithful to the end!

        Ooops! Did it again! That *Edit* button seems to *move* sometimes! :-) I hit the vote up in error instead! Just one of those days, I guess! I’m embarrassed!

    • EyeonGod, you are very welcome. Good to hear from you as well.
