How are your preparations coming?

For more than a year, we have talked about making preparations for the dark and evil days ahead. How are your preparations coming?

Have you purchased Heirloom seeds? Have you started gardening? Learning what grows well in your area and what does not? What about fruit trees? Have you planted any? They can take years to produce enough fruit for a family. Have you calculated how many canning jars you would need to preserve enough food to last an entire year? Have you started purchasing the jars and lids? Are you canning now? Learning how to preserve the foods you need while you can still buy replacements if a batch goes bad? What about food staples? Have you started purchasing extra flour, sugar, and other items? Do you have toilet paper? Enough to last a good long time? What about cleaning items? Bleach, soaps of all kinds, disinfectants? How about medical needs for injuries and illness? Do you have a clothesline so you can dry outside if needed? Can you generate any electricity if the power goes out? What is your backup plan for your refrigerator and freezer if the grid goes down? Do you have solar or wind power available? Are you self-sufficient?

I ask all this, because our warnings of hard times ahead do no good, if you don’t do anything. We talk more about spiritual preparation on this blog than the physical stuff, but you cannot discount the practical side of getting ready. When the dark times come, you will not be able to buy the things you need or they will be so expensive you won’t be able to afford them.

Can you defend yourself and your family from those who would take what you have and kill you? I suppose this is the hardest to contemplate. I know it is for me. I believe all life is sacred, from the unborn to the oldest of persons living today. Yet, in the dark times coming, life will not be important to those who embrace evil. They will kill to live. Are you ready to defend your life and the lives of those you love?

There is a lot of preparation needed. Preparing our hearts and gathering the things we’ll need to survive. Please consider beginning now. None of us know how much time we have. But the darkness is gathering…the time is coming…in a week, month, year or several years. We do not know, but we do know, it’s coming.

We would like to thank you. Our blog has grown to over 1000 subscribers each week. When we started, we were unsure anyone would find what we write worthy of reading. But we are humbled to know so many of you are faithful readers and forward our blog to others. This is an important message to share. Dark days are coming…you must prepare your heart and mind for what’s ahead. You need to begin gathering the food, seeds, supplies, and necessary items for survival now. God is warning His people to get ready. The only question is: will you listen?

    Has anyone thought of hydroponics? I know there used to be a farm here off highway 40 in the late ’60’s The addition of growing fish is very intriguing
