Prepper Kit


"Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:31-33)

Don't misunderstand, today's conveniences of refrigeration and modern food storage allow people to go several days, or every few weeks between shopping trips. Even Nita and I, between our pantry and freezer have a couple of weeks of provisions stored in case inclement weather or other emergency prohibits us from shopping on our regular schedule. That's simply being prudent. But in the Scriptures above, the Bible speaks against hoarding provisions, or 'prepping' for the End Times. The only way you need to prep for the Last Days is to be saved. The Bible says:

"Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again." (John 3:7)

"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" (Titus 3:5)

"And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..." (Acts 16:31)

There are many websites on the Internet that are warning of hard times coming for the Last Days. Just as prepping food and clothing are spoken against, also are hoarding other items. Some sites are suggesting people to buy gold and silver due to an imminent worldwide financial collapse. The Bible, however also specifically advises against this:

"Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days." (James 5:3)

Many of these prepper websites are run by so-called 'Christians' who couldn't care less about your salvation, and are actually after nothing but your money. One in particular has already been proven to be selling merchandise at greatly inflated prices, almost twice the amount of similar products available at other sites:

We have a warning from God's Word about these 'brethren', who are actually wolves in sheep's clothing:

"They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us." (1 John 2:19)

Now if you're thinking 'This is all well and good, but I live in the real world, and I need real resources.' Jesus is the ultimate provider and really knows how to stretch a provision! Remember, He fed several thousand people with only five loaves of bread and two fish (Matthew 14:17-21), and God caused a widow's containers to not run out of flour and oil (1 Kings 17:16), to cite only two of many such stories. Supernatural? Yes! Will He do it for you? Absolutely! Like the Scriptures at the top of the page says, the Bible guarantees!

" ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:33)

So, are you going to trust what you can do to provide for yourself and your family when times are hard by listening to these so-called 'Christian preppers', or will you trust what God can do? What this subject is really about is this: If you trust the Lord for your salvation, then trust Him for your provisions. And if you don't know Him as your Savior, get saved.
