Let’s get cracking!
In Matthew 24:37,38 Jesus said,
“But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall ALSO the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were BEFORE the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, UNTIL the day Noe(Noah) entered the ARK.”
This verse reveals to us a lot about what the times of the coming to the Lord will be like. Most importantly, we see that the world will proceed as they are presently deteriorating and more terrible simply like the Bible lets us know, and after that as those on the planet wind up like it was in the times of Noah Jesus will return when a few Christians start to THINK NOT that Jesus is coming back once more, and some are losing any desire for our Lord’s coming.
At the end of the day, the world will be totally unaware of the way that Jesus is returning and SOME Christians will start to DOUBT that Jesus is soon coming back.
The world, talking about the corrupt, the NON believers and the evil will be “found napping”, as it were, and they won’t be set up for the coming to Jesus when he comes to execute the WRATH of Almighty God the Father, however Christians generally will realize that the things going ahead the world are indications of the coming long periods of inconvenience and extraordinary tribulation that must happen upon the place of God FIRST BEFORE that incredible and prominent day of God’s WRATH be spilled out on the FEARFUL, the UNBELIEVING and the WICKED of this present world.
Daniel 12:10 says it like this
“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and NONE of the wicked shall UNDERSTAND; but the wise shall understand.”
However, the question still remains, “Will the Church, as a whole, be prepared for his appearing, the second coming of Jesus?”
Some Christian teach that the church will be raptured BEFORE this season of 3 1/2 years of the great tribulation, so they see no compelling reason to get ready for something that they THINK that they are not going to be around to experience.
At that point different Christians called preterist accept and show that the season of great tribulation has ALREADY come and gone being FULFILLED in 70 AD, so again to THEM in their THINKING is the reason would it be advisable for them to plan for something that has already happened?
Be that as it may, to the WISE the Bible says THEY might KNOW and UNDERSTAND that the season of great tribulation is happening upon all the earth, however a few Christians who do in reality know the TRUTH that the church will experience the whole time of extraordinary tribulation are still yet pondering WHAT they ought to do to PREPARE for the coming days ahead.

“For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And EXCEPT those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the ELECT’S (God’s people, BOTH the CHURCH and the Jews.
There is going to be great persecution against God’s people BOTH the Church AND the Jews during this time, and I sometimes wonder if the Church as a whole is prepared for such great persecution. I am frequently reminded of the words of Jesus in Luke 17:7,8 as I was led to write this study in God’s word.
“And shall not God avenge his own elect, (the CHURCH speaking of believers IN Jesus AND God’s people Israel the JEWS. These TWO groups of God’s people are the TWO WITNESSES in the Book of Revelation and they are the ONLY two groups of people who stand in all the earth for the ONE TRUE and only Almighty God and one of the things that we are to do to PREPARE for the time of GREAT tribulation is to cry out to God for the abominations that are coming on the earth.
There is an “Ark of security”, so to speak, that we need to prepare BEFORE the days of great tribulation are upon us, and it is going to take some time to build it into our spirits. It wouldn’t have done Noah much good to wait until the flood came before he began to build or prepare the ark. In the whole scope of things it is only going to get worse and worse, so the longer you wait to prepare your ark of security the more difficult it will be.
Don’t be caught unprepared! Building an ark of security is something that each and every Christian must prepare for themselves individually. Not I, nor anyone else, can do it for you. I want you to take a close look at Ezekiel 14:13-20 which says,
“Son of man, WHEN the land sins against me by trespassing grievously (great FALLING AWAY), then will I stretch out my hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it.
- Though these three men, NOAH, DANIEL, and JOB, were in it, they should but deliver their OWN souls BY their RIGHTEOUSNESS, says God.
- If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts:
- Though these men were in it, (in the midst of it) as I live says God, they shall deliver NEITHER sons NOR daughters: they ONLY shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate.
- Or if I bring a sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man and beast from it:
- Though these three men were IN it, as I live says the Lord God, they shall neither deliver sons and daughters, but ONLY shall be delivered THEMSELVES.
- Or if I send pestilence into the land, and pour out my fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast:
- Though NOAH, DANIEL, and JOB, were IN it, as I live, says the Lord God, they shall deliver their OWN souls (how?) BY their RIGHTEOUSNESS.”
The bottom line is that YOU are at last in charge of your OWN salvation. The Bible tells us in Philippians 2:12,
“Wherefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not in my PRESENCE ONLY, but how MUCH MORE in my absence, work out YOUR OWN salvation with fear and trembling.”
Keeping yourself in the faith is again ultimately YOUR responsibility.
Jesus said in Luke 18:1 that men ought ALWAYS to pray, and NOT to FAINT. We need to be in continual fellowship with our heavenly Father. No more up and down, in and out Christianity can be tolerated, IF we desire to dwell in an “Ark of security”.
We need to learn to pray without ceasing, that is to say, without giving up or casting away our confidence in what we pray. KNOW who you are in Jesus Christ and the authority that you have been given in the mighty name of Jesus and quite LETTING the devil walk all over you. Many things that Christians suffer can be avoided by knowing who you are in Jesus Christ, but the Bible does teach us that we are going to suffer PERSECUTION.
Without a doubt, judgment is coming, and in 1 Peter 4:17-19 we read that judgment must BEGIN in the HOUSE of God.
Now that you’ve learned how to survive the tribulation period with survival tips from a biblical perspective, it is evident that you also need practical tips to survive the trials and tribulations. Here is a list of items deemed necessary for survival during this period.
God warned that disobedience would lead to punishments, such as lack of fresh water (Deuteronomy 28:23-24; Psalm 107:33-34)
Two of these plagues affect water directly as seen in Revelation 8:8-11.
Lack of clean water will be a challenge that you will have to face during the Tribulation. Know how to purify water. If you expend non-consumable water you may welcome diseases or swallow living organisms that can harm you.
(5) And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. (6) And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine (Revelation 6:5-6)
Needless to say that you need food to survive. After investigating diverse sorts of nourishment, canned juices, meats (fish, chicken, ham), vegetables, soups, and organic products had a time span of usability of more than two years.
Every single canned great ought to be low-sodium and put away in a cool place. There are numerous protein bars available that have between a 3-5 year time span of usability. Two of the more remarkable survival bars are the Mayday 2400 and the Mainstay 3600. Obviously, MREs, flour, white rice, sugar, dried soybeans, and powdered drain, if put away effectively, have long time spans of usability.
3. Fundamental Gear/Equipment
In view of your surrounding, you will require attire, caps, gloves, footwear, and covers that will protect you throughout the end times period. Make a list. Listicles can be used as a fast reference point and guide when storing survival needs, remember this is just a guide and not framed in stone, the final result ought to be carefully fit for you and your needs. After all who knows your abilities and assets best suited for you?
4. Safe Haven
Your first concern ought to be to secure a protected safe house to house your family and store supplies that will support all of you for no less than three and one-half years of the seven-year tribulation period.
5, The Bug-out Bag
Revelation 1:3 (HCSB) — The one who reads this is blessed, and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep what is written in it are blessed, because the time is near!
You have to work out an escape plan so you can get to a more secure area or vantage call attention to even totally out of evade, contingent upon the circumstance. You require a snatch and go sack or “survival pack” that will supply your necessities on the off chance that you are forced to abandon your home.
6. Medicine And Health
The initial step is instruction and preparing. Taking a First-Aid/CPR class is unquestionably the first thing each prepper ought to have, and ought to be the initial step taken to get to be as restoratively autonomous as could be expected under the circumstances. Home nursing and Paramedic/EMT classes are definitely expected and will take you well past the education level of the normal medical aid class.
Other things to note on health: Sound diet, exercise, and supplements.
