Seven Ways to Store Fresh Food Longer

Are there difficult days ahead?  Will there be food shortages, drought, and famine across the land?  What can I do to be prepared? These are some of the questions I hear regularly from people as I am out-and-about. Understandably, people all over are very concerned about what is going on in the world and are looking for ways to be prepare their families for the future.  Even the very wealthy are preparing for an uncertain future, as they are constructing elaborate “bug-out” facilities to provide safety for themselves and their families. Obviously, I believe Preparedness is important.  In fact, throughout […]

Preparation Call and the Need to Share Love

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.   John 15:13 With all the anger, fear, and violence around us, is it even possible to love in times like these? With every new day there seems to be more pain, suffering, and dissension amongst peoples.  Innocent lives are taken by those who are driven by their own anger, hatred, intolerance, or extremist views.  How can we love in times when people are so consumed with themselves that they easily discard others – even family – when the relationship becomes an inconvenient burden? We […]

Doomsday Survival or Preparation Call?

Doomsday Survival has become quite a popular topic with today’s media and politicians.   It is a telling sign that more and more people are concerned with events that are happening all across the globe. Unfortunately, the concerns that people face are often fueled by the media in the form of fear.  News outlets and others often sensationalize events that are happening, in order to boost their following.  Regrettably, fear has proven to be a powerful agent in driving revenues.  The internet has made information immediately available so it has become very easy to follow events all over the world.  I […]

Prepare Your Heart

by Joseph
I have such an incredible family.   My wife and children have been such an inspiration and support. My oldest daughter shared this with me, and it is so pertinent to the Preparation Call and to the theme of this site.  I hope you enjoy… Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.  Titus 3:1-2 This is such a spectacular verse!  You may not be a Christian or of the same beliefs, […]

Rise Up, and Fear Not!

Arise and shine for the light has come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.  Isaiah 60:1 Today, we want to share a devotion we received and hope it will give you encouragement.  It is time to Rise Up!  It is time to set aside fear!  It is time to move forward with boldness and courage! Times are very tough, and fear is impacting in a lot of lives.  We are beginning to see the challenging times that we have been preparing for.  God hasn’t just prepared us to store food so we can eat during a […]

Turmoil is Changing Families

by Joseph
In the difficult and turbulent times we are facing, families are changing.  In many ways the change is ultimately very good.  I believe it is pushing families to be more cohesive and sensitive to each other.   Families are somewhat forced to draw closer together in order to work through the tough times and fears.  Obviously, family congruency is an important part of the preparation process. I have heard many stories of how my grandparents raised their children to help around the homestead.  It seems to have been common practice (and necessity) that families worked together to maintain the farm – […]

A World War is Upon us

WARNING! I believe a World War is fast approaching and it is becoming increasingly essential that we are getting prepared. Before I share some thoughts, let me start by saying that I post this with a very heavy heart. I struggle that many people may find the comments I will share to be disturbing or painful. Certainly, it is not my intent to discourage anyone or bring fear. On the contrary, I know we have a Redeemer – and in Him we have Life Everlasting. The purpose of this writing (and the blog in its entirety) is to hopefully provoke […]

A Time of Increasing Intensity

by Joseph
In my lifetime, I have never seen such despair and ambivalence. People are afraid and many are losing hope. The times have impressed people to begin living more simple lives, and to prepare. In fact, many people have felt a call to prepare and to be ready for the difficulties that are approaching. Those difficulties could be in the form of political or economic crisis, or they could be a catastrophic natural event like an earthquake or drought. Whatever the difficulty, countless families are now seeing the importance of preparing. My family has been in active preparation for years now, […]

Economic Collapse and our rush to war

Preparation is now taking on a new and vital importance. For those doubters who have scoffed at the need or call for preparation, I hope you will soon arise from your sleep. Many people never thought that the world and domestic events would push things to the point of where we now find ourselves.  It is an amazing time to be alive!  Prepare to meet thy God! World events are changing very quickly with daily reports of wars and upheaval all over the globe.  Everything is becoming more intense and will continue to intensify as we draw ever closer to […]

US Government Warns of Revelation Apocalypse?

As we continue with the assignment of sharing the need for preparation, it seems we are now joined by the US Government in proclaiming the need to prepare for the Last Days Apocalypse. In fact, in a recent and popular post on the Center for Disease Control site there was a somewhat disturbing article entitled “Preparedness -101:  Zombie Apocalypse“. Do you think the US Government knows something they are not fully disclosing to a sheepish public?  Well of course they do. I am quite sure the title of this recent article was carefully chosen to create attention and interest from […]
