Is Preparing For An Emergency Showing a Lack of Faith?

19 Nov

     One should not prepare out of fear but out of wisdom. Back in 1999 I started preparing by ordering MRE’s (meals-ready-to-eat). I stocked up on candles, kerosene for the lamps, and batteries. I bought a clothes line to hang up in the backyard with clothes pins along with many other essentials. Well nine years later the survival supplies I bought became a great blessing. Hurricane Ike was in the Gulf of Mexico, both my daughter and I had a dream on the same night, that the storm would be coming our way. With a few days still lift before arrival I took the warnings serious to prepare even more. I filled up 5 five gallons gas cans and starting freezing containers of water. I bought extra water and nonperishable items. Considering the possible chance of a tornado I prepared a safe area in a restroom that is located in the center of the house. Sept 8, 2008 the storm rolled in with a vengeance, yet we live inland 90 miles from the gulf. We quickly lost power which lasted us 15 days before power could be restored. Hurricane Ike left destruction all along its path, we could hear the limbs popping from the trees. The next day our house was still standing but there was a lot of debris that needed clean up. All the supplies I had stockpiled came in handy.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

     I was able to share some of our MRE’s with our neighbors and give them some gas while they shared the use of their generator so we could plug a fan in. My daughter was pregnant at the time and the heat made it very uncomfortable for her to sleep at night, having power to run the fan was a blessing for her. Trusting In our Lord is of the greatest importance but he desires his children to be prudent and if one is able to prepare it is wise to do so.  In Genesis 41 we learn about the importance of preparedness. Pharaoh had two dreams and the Lord gave Joseph the gift of interpreting them. Both dreams had the same interpretation, seven years of abundance and seven years of famine. The Lord warned them and they heeded the warnings by stockpiling grain during the seven years of abundance. When the famine came they were prepared and many lives were saved. By far being prepared spiritually is of the greatest importance, putting total Trust in Jesus, praying for his guidance and direction in all aspects of our lives.

This is our front yard after Hurricane Ike hit.

I did laundry like my mom use to.

These are the MRE’s we ate.

Beware of Deception!

 Beware of Deception!

We are living in a time when we really must beware of the warnings in the written word! We must use discernment!

Jesus warned us!!!

Matthew 24:24For false christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.

1 John 4
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

2 John 1
7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. 9 Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; 11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.

Matthew 24
4 And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. 5 “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ, ’ and will mislead many.

Satan is clever he mixes truth with lies and twist it together so it is hard to see the deceit. Satan will make it appear to be something good and will package it like that, offering the world peace and Unity!

We must remember Satan has many tricks!!!!

2 Corinthians 11:14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light

1 Peter 5
8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; NO ONE comes to the Father but through Me. That’s pretty clear. Jesus is the one and only door to eternal life.

John 10:9 “I am the gate (door); whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.” (verse 7) The one and the only door. The door.

Think about this, Noah’s ark had only one door. How many doors are there to heaven? One. Jesus is the only way to heaven. Jesus is the Door. He’s the only way to heaven. Buddha can’t save us. Mohammad can’t save us. According to word of God, Jesus is the only way! The only door!

We have those teaching there are other ways. But Jesus says they are thieves and robbers.

 John 10: 1 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.

Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in NO ONE else, for there is NO other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.

2 Timothy 3
14 You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

Matthew 7:
15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 “You will know them by their fruits.


  The written word warns us of deceiving Spirits and false Christ. These warnings should be an eye opener for all Children of God!
Unity can only be found with Jesus the Messiah as the very foundation. Yet as Children of God we are to love and pray for ALL mankind.

My prayer is NO one is deceived!
God Bless Each and Every One of You!

John: 3:16:  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

 
1 John: 5:11-12:  And this is the record, that has given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that has the Son has life, and he that has not the Son of God has not life.

The Stranger At The Door

The Little Voice Warning Me!

This happened 22 years ago when my daughter was 3 and my son was 2. I was a stay at home mom, while my husband had a full-time job and worked part-time throwing newspapers in the early mornings. One morning while my husband was out I heard the doorbell ring. Now this happened around 5:00 AM and it was still dark outside. As I approached the door a little voice in my head told me not to open it. I spoke through the door. On the other side was a woman who told me she had ran out of gas and needed to use the phone. I could see her car as I looked out the window.
I was still hearing that little voice telling me don’t open the door. I told her why don’t you give me the number and I will make the call for you? She began to get angry and said this is a long distance call. I could not understand why that mattered, I could have still made the call for her but she didn’t want me to. Her anger was growing I could hear it in her voice. Then she said, “Just give me some change so I can go use a pay phone.” All kinds of thoughts were going through my head by this time. I was thinking about my little children in the other room and the voice was telling me don’t open the door. She then said sarcastically, “If you are scared then I will stand on the sidewalk and you can put the change on the porch.” that didn’t make me feel comfortable because I didn’t know if someone else might be with her. I felt there could be someone standing by the door knowing they could force their way into the house.  As I continued hesitating and peeking through the window I saw her and a man walk back and enter into the car. The next thing I saw made my heart skip a few beats. The man started the car which was supposed to be out of gas and drove off. I was so thankful for that little voice warning me of danger. I am not sure what would have happened that early morning but I can just imagine how terrible it would have been had my husband came home and found his family lifeless. I know I have been very fortunate in my life and I am thankful that in times of trouble the Lord has never abandoned me. I know my purpose for life was not done and I was being molded to serve him.
I am thankful for the experiences I have had and the lessons I have learned.
God Bless Each of You and Learn From Others!
