Hello, my friend and welcome back! I think by far, that the panic that will sit in when it first all falls apart will doom many Preppers. I mean it’s one thing to prepare, but when the hammer actually drops and it hits you that you are in for the fight of your life, many preppers will become so afraid that they will basically freeze up. This is the subject of today’s post so grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
We see it all the time in the military and law enforcement as well, when people finally have to pull the trigger, they freeze. Now, remember that these are trained professionals and yet they still freeze. This is also just one type of situation where it actually happens. For many Preppers, it is all fun and games until it all falls apart. They tell themselves that they can turn away a hungry family, or actually kill someone with a gun when in truth, they really can’t.
Here is the thing, they honestly believe they can, and practice with their firearms and lie to themselves over and over. The sad truth is that if you can’t turn away a hungry family or kill someone to protect what is yours, then you might just as well use that pistol you have on yourself. When the hammer drops and it all falls apart, if you are not 100% committed to surviving at any cost, then you’re prepping for nothing.
Now I’m not saying this to discourage anyone from prepping but hope to get people to open their eyes now, rather than later. Right now, you need to be asking yourself some really hard questions like “can I actually do it” and leave out your pride and all of the bravado so you can honestly answer the question for yourself. If the answer is no or “I’m not sure” then you have some work to do.
A while back I did a post on turning away hungry friends and family’s away when they come to your gate for food and water. The comments that the post received were very eye-opening. Many people said they could, while many others criticized them for saying so. A few people chose to use carefully chosen words from the bible about feeding the hungry. The trouble is that they chose to ignore the story of Noah and his family as well as many other places where the Bible discusses survival.
In the Bible, God commands his people to store up provisions and arms and be ready at all times. This is just what Preppers are doing now. The trouble is that there are those who choose to disregard what the Bible tells them and not prepare at all. That is between them and God as I see it. Their ego makes them want to seem nobel by picking and choosing which words and verses to quote. Believe me when I say that when it comes to survival, there is absolutely no place for ego. Even the strongest man will be humbled when it comes to him and his loved one’s survival.
Now, on the other hand, there will be those who think they can’t, but when the time comes, will be strong as steel and buckle down and do what they need to do to survive. Just because you do what you have to do to survive, doesn’t make you a bad person. It makes you a Survivor!
The point I’m trying to make here is, that you really need to ask yourself some really hard questions and answer them honestly. If you can’t, then you need to look for inspiration in whatever faith you believe in. You need to settle your conscience now rather than later. If you are part of a survival group then you need to set hard and fast rules about just how you will handle such situations. This will help because such decisions affect the whole group and not just one person. You support and keep each other strong, through the worst of times. In this way, you can help each other keep it all together when it all falls apart.
Now I’m sure I’m going to get hammered by a few well-meaning Christians for this post, but it’s just the price we pay for telling the truth. For what it’s worth, I strongly believe that God wants you to survive and multiply. Read and pray on it until you can see the wisdom in your surviving. It’s there if you only look. The new world will need Godly people just as much or more as the old world does.
Well, that is it for today and I hope you have found this post useful, so until next time, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
